Discipleship in the New Age II - Teachings on Meditation - Part XII
It might be said that, intermediate between the great planetary centers, a group of those who can meditate creatively can be found; they are chosen out of each of the larger centers and from among those who are already accustomed to meditation. I would like to pause at this point and ask you to remember that I refer not here to religious meditation, strictly understood, or to those invocative appeals for help and aid which are so closely associated in the mind of the western Christian thinker. I refer to all who - in quiet reflection, focused appeal and with a true background of knowledge - are able to "think through" into a higher state of consciousness than the one of which they are normally aware; in that higher state they arrive at those intuitional and spiritual "discoveries" which can produce the seed of a new creation, or which can open up (for those unable thus to meditate) a new field of possible awareness. The motive of all such group meditation must be selfless service; the keynote of all such groups is creativity; they are all of them demonstrations of the perfected third aspect of active intelligence, plus other developing aspects; all of them are in direct relation or alignment with one of the Buddhas of Activity, who embody within themselves the essence of the third Ray of Active Intelligence, through which the third aspect can successfully project and express itself. It is these three Buddhas who were instrumental in the amazing and occult process of implementing the mental principle upon our planet, and who - through their creative meditation - brought our planet, the Earth, and the planet Venus into direct alignment. This made possible the coming of the Sons of Mind and the formation of the fourth kingdom in nature, Humanity. They are Embodiments of the intuition, and control the inflow of intuitional energy into the minds of men.

The point which I would have you bear in mind is that these intermediate groups of Workers who know the power of meditation are primarily creative, and that the efficacy of their work is demonstrated in the larger group whose [201] behests they are carrying out and in the group which is creatively influenced by the meditation work accomplished.

Curiously enough, in view of the fact that the principle of Mind is the fifth principle, there are five major groups who function primarily through "creative and sustaining" meditation. These are:

  1. The New Group of World Servers.
  2. The Ashram, with which disciples in the New Group of World Servers may be affiliated.
  3. The Hierarchy itself, the Ashram, of Sanat Kumara.
  4. The Nirmanakayas or the "inspired Contemplative."
  5. The higher correspondence of the Nirmanakayas who find their place in relation to Shamballa; this is analogous to that of the Nirmanakayas to the Hierarchy.

The personnel of these groups is supplied from the larger groups to which they are intermediate:

1. The New Group of World Servers gathers its personnel out of the great planetary center called Humanity.

a. The more advanced members of the group are affiliated with some Ashram. within the ring-pass-not of the Hierarchy.

b. The greater Ashram, composed of many Ashrams, is the fulfiled production of the New Group of World Servers, down the ages. This is a statement full of important implications.

2. The Nirmanakayas gather their personnel out of the Hierarchy, the second great planetary center. Their relation to Shamballa is not one of affiliation, nor is it the same as that of the New Group of World Servers to the Hierarchy. Their major relationship is with the Triangle of the Buddhas of Activity, and it is under their creative inspiration that they work. This stream of inspiration or of "energy flooded with creative light" is made available to the Hierarchy at all [202] times and when needed for their creative work; it is a part of that dynamic, galvanizing energy which feeds the enthusiasm of the New Group of World Servers, binds them together in the One Work, and enables them to work intelligently and with creative ability.

3. A mysterious body of what have been called "Reflecting Lights"; the Members of this group are to a certain extent extra-planetary. They are affiliated with Shamballa and focus cosmic creative energy, thus making it available (on demand) to the Members of the Council Chamber at Shamballa. There is little that we need consider about them; they are the "Helpers of the Lord of the World," and implement his purposes as they are formulated by him on the cosmic mental plane.

The point which I seek to emphasize, and which I hope will remain in your minds, is that this technique of meditation is the outstanding creative agent on our planet. When you, as an individual, are endeavoring to "build the new man in Christ" which will be an expression of your true spiritual self, meditation is, as you well know, your best agent; but the meditation process must be accompanied by creative work, or else it is purely mystical, and though not futile, is nevertheless negative in creative results.

Members of the New Group of World Servers are gathered from all branches of human enterprise, of which organized religion is only one. There are scientists who, repudiating violently the unproven, yet are giving all they have of scientific ability and knowledge to the service of humanity - each in his chosen scientific field; there are men of financial stature who regard money as a responsibility to be dispensed wisely in the service of others, yet the mystical or occult terminology may mean nothing whatsoever to them; there are educators, preoccupied with wise formulations of knowledge and with an encyclopedic understanding of the garnered wisdom of the ages, which they seek to utilize in fitting the younger generation to live beautifully, constructively and creatively; there are churchmen and religious leaders (in [203] some one or other of the world religions) who are not tied or handicapped by the form; the spirit of light is in them and they intelligently love their fellowmen. All of these people, if they are members of the New Group of World Servers, must inevitably be reflecting thinkers, must have creative objectives, must be truly intelligent, and must have added expanding love to their intelligence.

These men and women have a dual relationship: to the rest of humanity whom they seek to serve, and also to the Hierarchy, via some Ashram - an Ashram which is the source of their inspiration and of their creative efforts to think and to work.

The accepted disciple in this group work is in conscious rapport with both planetary centers (that of Humanity and that of the Hierarchy) and their creative thinking largely conditions the group. Many, however, in this group are conscious of their relation to humanity and of their planned service, but are totally unaware of the unseen source of their inspiration. This matters not, for - if their motive is pure, their intelligence keen and their meditational capacity adequate - they receive the inspiration and develop the intuition in any case. It is those in the New Group of World Servers who can and do meditate who are the real agents of the relation existing between the Hierarchy and Humanity. Such a relation has, of course, always existed, and always there have been many mystics and a few occultists who have served as channels of relationship; today, the group is newly organized and the task of invocation and evocation is for the first time in history evenly balanced, or is upon what you might call a fifty-fifty basis.

Again, the New Group of World Servers is composed of widely diverse men and women, gathered out of all nations, holding many different points of view and following the many different professions and ideologies; it is therefore more truly representative of humanity and more truly potent than ever before.

When the work of the Invocation reaches a high stage of development and the climaxing year of 1952 is over, it will then be wise to bring to the attention of the general public, [204] and on a worldwide scale, the factual nature of the New Group of World Servers.
