The first thing to be grasped is that there is a Plan for humanity and that this Plan has always existed. It has worked out through the evolutionary developments of the past ages and also through that special impetus which has been given it from time to time by the great intuitives and teachers of the races. Today there are a sufficient number of men and women ** in the world, adequately developed, so that they can contact it and work in connection with it. It is becoming more a matter of group recognition than of intuitive revelation. Secondly, it is to be noted that there is upon our planet a group of men and women belonging to every nation, who are definitely upon the Path of Discipleship and because of their status, they are all of them as definitely serving the race. They are subjectively welded together into a body, which we have called the New Group of World Servers, for lack of a better name. Their characteristics are well known, for many have made a careful study of this group for two or three years and many also form a part of it. (Esoteric Psychology Vol. II, pp. 649-50)
