Cultivating Pliability in an Age in Flux — Editorial
The objective for the world’s disciples and aspirants is not merely to "remain standing", so to speak, during the inflow of new-age energies, but to be of service to the Great Ones who seek to work through their agents in the world: the new group of world servers.

The Period of Transition — Djwhal Khul

Occultism, Buddhism, and the No-Soul Doctrine - Part I — Leoni Hodgson
Many people whose understandings are based on Deity and soul are bemused about the Buddhist no-soul and no-Creator. What is it that the great Teacher is supposed to have said and is there some way the Buddhist and occult teachings ( the writings of Helena Blavatsky and Alice Bailey, which are closely aligned with Vedanta) could be reconciled?

That is to say, that through art we may be led to see the Real beyond the Unreal, the eternal behind the temporal.

Abdul Ghaffar Khan: A Forerunner — Julie Rudzinski
In the austere mountains of the Frontier Province today the weed of revenge grows beside the "wild daisies" of the once-peaceful Pakhtun soldiers who marched in the army of God. They symbolize for us the choice faced by our civilization at this crossroads of history, presenting either the curse of war or the promise of peace.
