The Triangles Network
In our online digital world, ‘networks’ and ‘networking’ are terms in common parlance describing a raft of interrelated technologies. It is not surprising then, that a recent search on Google for the word ‘network’ returned over three and a half billion (3,520,000,000) results. The concept of physical networks is intrinsically linked to interconnectedness. Networks allow the human family to disseminate information and news, and to communicate with each other in real time from anywhere in the world. Collectively, and broadly speaking, these networks express and are an expression of human intelligence. The proliferation of networking technologies in effecting instantaneous communication on physical levels is quite probably a reflection, an outer expression, of those expanding lines of communication in consciousness that inwardly link the centre to the periphery of life.
One network that isn’t a household name but nevertheless of growing subjective consequence is the Triangles Network. Triangles was launched in the 1930s, at a critical period in history, when humanity stood on the verge of a second world war. At that time, it was deemed possible by the spiritual Hierarchy that a vast, planetary, triangular network of light impulsed by love could be constructed by focused and spiritually awakened people of goodwill.
The prolonged and sustained impetus of the Triangles work over many years has no doubt played a part in awakening human minds to right values to live by. We can broadly categorise these values as a love of truth, a sense of justice, a spirit of co-operation, a sense of personal responsibility and serving the common good. Everywhere we see the demonstration of these values in the world. The consciousness of humanity is ever evolving, ever becoming more responsive to the magnetic pull of Hierarchy. For a growing number, a separative and insular mindset is gradually giving way to an inclusive world view. And, whilst, the entrenched forces of selfishness are still potent, and at large, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to suggest that their hold and influence over the human family wanes with each passing generation.
In virtually every country, continent, race and religion, many thousands of Triangles co-workers daily link up subjectively to vitalise their triangles and permeate the network with light and goodwill. Sounding the Great Invocation, a world prayer for all of humanity, and central to our work, sets in motion the circulation of light and love. Each triangle acts as a relaying point of energy distribution, and each triangle is an integral part of the greater whole. The Invocation voices in a simple, yet profound way the approach of humanity to the divine and the part that we can play in the work of planetary transformation.
Out of the tumult of the last few centuries a ‘nucleus of a great synthesis’ is being wrought out on the global stage. Numerous groups focused on selfless service are appearing throughout the world. This precipitation of serving groups has been ongoing for 100 years or so. With each passing year their influence grows, their integration and co-ordination deepens, and their skill in action is honed in the crucible of daily life. Humanity is at long last responding to the spiritual values that underlie a culture of the soul. The outpouring of goodwill is gaining momentum, and yet predictably the forces of separatism are resisting. Nothing, ultimately, can arrest the tide of evolution. Human development is assured. Nonetheless, human destiny, direction and the speed of progress are the responsibility of us all. If we care deeply about the welfare of humanity, and the wise stewardship of the planet, then our work in Triangles is a daily act of consecration and dedication to these sacred themes.
Our work, quite simply, is to “enlarge the work of the Triangles so that, subjectively and etherically, light and goodwill may envelop the earth”.
