Discipleship in the New Age II - Teachings on Meditation - Part XII
This New Group of World Servers is an aspect of the world antahkarana and it gives students of the antahkarana a sound example of the intent and purpose of the Rainbow Bridge which each disciple is endeavoring consciously to build. It is composed of those who have penetrated in consciousness upward to such an extent and height that their ascension has become invocative and has produced a descent from the Hierarchy which meets and merges with the energies of the ascending group reflection. Words here are apt to hinder, but the visualization indicated will prove helpful. In the case of the New Group of World Servers, it is not simply ascending energy which must be considered; there is also a focusing of consciousness and a receptivity which can develop into fixed intention; this can be followed later by a recognition in the physical brain consciousness of what has transpired. Forget not that - in detail - the New Group of World Servers is composed of the following groups:
  1. Initiates and disciples who are consciously a part of the Great White Lodge.
  2. Aspirants and lesser disciples who are affiliated with the Hierarchy, but who do not usually possess that continuity of consciousness which will come later.
  3. Those upon the Probationary Path who are not yet affiliated with the Hierarchy; they are, however, subject to hierarchical impression and are determined to serve their fellowmen.
  4. An increasing number of people who respond to the idealism and the purpose of the New Group of World Servers and who will rapidly join the group.

The main requirement is Meditation but - as you know - it is not necessarily the set meditation of occult schools and churches; membership in the group, however, requires the development of the reflective spirit along some line of human understanding; it requires also the power to focus attention [205] upon that which can serve humanity and a compassionate recognition of human need. The unthinking man or woman, or those engrossed entirely in business, political and family ties, cannot form a part of the New Group of World Servers, because the group demands a definite measure of decentralization; to this, habits of meditation rapidly contribute.

As the members of this group meditate and serve, they will gradually find that they are becoming aware of an inner group - the Ashram of the Master on whose ray the individual server is to be found. This will necessarily vary according to the ray; the ray - it must be remembered - determines the quality and the nature of the service to be rendered. Gradually the neophyte swings into the rhythm of the Ashram, and gradually his meditation changes and falls into line with the instinctual and constant ashramic meditation. It must be remembered that ashramic meditation is entirely devoid of personality elements. It is in the nature of a constant and uninterrupted group meditation upon the Plan, and particularly upon that aspect of the Plan which must immediately be put into operation; this is the apportioned duty of the Ashram or the Ashrams in question. This constant attitude of reflective meditation in no way impairs the efficiency of the Ashram or of the individual disciple, because two or more lines of thought and several lines of activity are simultaneously possible. This is another lesson which the disciple learns.

Later again, the disciple in the Ashram becomes aware of the meditation proceeding all the time within the greater Ashram, the Hierarchy. This is the Ashram (if I might repeat the statement) of Sanat Kumara, the Lord of the World. This great Ashram is headed and controlled by the Christ. The aspiring disciple becomes conscious of a vast meditational rhythm which is like the action of the human heart in its beat; it is both receiving and distributing, invocative and evocative; as he becomes habituated in this meditation rhythm, he learns to swing his own individual meditation into the set rhythm of the Hierarchy; this is a definite [206] step forward, for the hierarchical rhythm is one of tremendous potency - a potency so great that it penetrates beyond the hierarchical ring-pass-not.

The effect of that reflective vibration is both vertical and horizontal, and this wide diffusion has led to the formation of that major group of contemplative, the Nirmanakayas; they focus the hierarchical invocative appeal and (to quote the Old Commentary) "put it into the musical form which will please the ear of the One who dwells in the highest plane." They then transfer the focused received energies - after due reflection and contemplation - to Shamballa. One of their functions is to relate the invocative appeal of the Hierarchy to karmic law, and thus determine "in the deep silence of their united work" what can be possible because it does not infringe upon karmic intention, and what is not yet possible in time and space - those two major factors which are governed by karmic law. They have to bear in mind that the time has not yet come and "the karmic era cannot yet demand that demanded good become accomplished good."

The members of this group are also transmitters to the Hierarchy of the response evoked from Shamballa. They are constantly in touch with the Council Chamber at Shamballa. Just as the Hierarchy - in this present cycle of world endeavor - is working through the New Group of World Servers, so Shamballa is carrying out its intentions (as far as humanity is concerned) through this group of Nirmanakayas. This all connotes a great centralization of the work in connection with the reappearance of the Christ.

You can see, therefore, that a gigantic group meditation is going on in many differing phases upon our planet. All the meditating units and the reflective groups are related to each other through unity of spiritual motive; they are seeking closer cooperation and endeavoring to bring their meditation work-consciously or unconsciously - into a state of positive universal quiet, so that the formulation of spiritual desire can be carried successfully forward, and the reception of spiritual energy can be a united reception.

Therefore, brother of mine, a great effort towards alignment is going on, and when the individual aspirant can so [207] meditate that his voice can reach the New Group of World Servers, that group can then impress the individual; through him humanity can be reached. It can also impress the Hierarchy; then the Contemplatives who are in touch with Shamballa can contact the Hierarchy, and through the Hierarchy can impress the New Group of World Servers; then, and only then, the moment will arrive when the Christ will come.

Already upon the mountains of initiation the sound of his feet can be heard. He works now with his initiates within the Hierarchy; their united meditation is hastening the preparatory work and is also leading to the initiation of countless disciples, thus rendering them far more useful than would otherwise be the case.

The united meditation of these disciples is collaborating with that of the Christ and of the Masters, and senior initiates will impress the members of the New Group of World Servers; those in this latter group who are, as disciples, members of the Hierarchy, become the agents of this impression. The meditation of the New Group of World Servers, in conjunction with the hierarchical meditation, will inevitably impress the sons of men who are seeking and longing for liberation; thus a great channel or Path of Light is created by cooperative meditation, and along that Path - speaking symbolically - the Christ will come.
