|The work being done by those who see the world stage as the
arena for the conflict between the Dweller on the Threshold and the Angel of the Presence
might be itemized as follows:
- The producing of those world conditions in which the Forces of Light can overcome the
Forces of Evil. This they do by the weight of their armed forces, plus their clear
- The educating of humanity in the distinction between
- Spirituality and materialism, pointing to the differing goals of the combatant forces.
- Sharing and greed, outlining a future world wherein The Four Freedoms will be
dominant and all will have that which is needed for right living-processes.
- Light and dark, demonstrating the difference between an illumined future of liberty and
opportunity and the dark future of slavery.
- Fellowship and separation, indicating a world order where racial hatreds, caste
distinctions and religious differences will form no barrier to international
understanding, and the Axis order of master races, determined religious attitudes, and
- The whole and the part, pointing to the time which is approaching (under the
evolutionary urge of spirit) wherein the part or the point of life assumes its
responsibility for the whole, and the whole exists for the good of the part. The dark
aspect has been brought about by ages of glamor. The light is being emphasized and made
clear by the world aspirants and disciples who by their attitudes, their actions, their
writings and their utterances are bringing the light into dark places.
- Preparing the way for the three spiritual energies which will sweep humanity into an era
of comprehension, leading  to a focused mental clarification of men's minds
throughout the world. These three imminent energies are
- The energy of the intuition which will gradually dispel world illusion, and
produce automatically a great augmentation of the ranks of initiates.
- The activity of light which will dissipate, by the energy of illumination, the
world of glamor and bring many thousands on to the Path of Discipleship.
- The energy of inspiration which will bring about, through the medium of its
sweeping potency, the devitalization or the removal, as by a wind, of the attractive power
of maya or substance. This will release untold thousands on to the Path of Probation.
- Releasing new life into the planet through the medium of every possible agency. The
first step towards this release is the proving that the power of materialism is broken by
the complete defeat of the Axis powers and, secondly, by the ability of the United Nations
to demonstrate (when this has been done) the potency of the spiritual values by their
constructive undertakings to restore world order and to lay those foundations which will
guarantee a better and more spiritual way of life. These constructive attitudes and
undertakings must be assumed individually by every person, and by nations as collective
wholes. The first is being undertaken at this time. The second remains as yet to be done.
- Bringing home to the nations of the world the truths taught by the Buddha, the Lord of
Light, and the Christ, the Lord of Love. In this connection it might be pointed out that
- The Axis nations need to grasp the teaching of the Buddha as He enunciated it in the
Four Noble Truths; they need to realize that the cause of all sorrow and woe is desire -
desire for that which is material.
- The United Nations need to learn to apply the Law of Love as enunciated in the life of
Christ and to express the truth that "no man liveth unto himself" and no 
nation either, and that the goal of all human effort is loving understanding, prompted
by a program of love for the whole.
If the lives and teachings of these two great Avatars can be comprehended and wrought
out anew in the lives of men today, in the world of human affairs, in the realm of human
thinking and in the arena of daily living, the present world order (which is today largely
disorder) can be so modified and changed that a new world and a new race of men can
gradually come into being. Renunciation and the use of the sacrificial will should be the
keynote for the interim period after the war, prior to the inauguration of the New Age.
