The theme of the new moon meditations is strengthening the hands of the group of world servers.The meeting will include a brief talk, discusson and meditation with the goal of clarifying group thinking about the solution to major world problems.
Meditation is the primary form of service for those following a spiritual path. It is a means of cooperation and alignment with hierarchical intent. The new moon period follows upon the cycle of outbreathing in the rhythmic cycles of the breath; it is a time of pause wherein together we can establish a soul-mind-brain alignment. During this period we work in thought to concretize the ideas and impressions received at the time of the full moon period and undertake the sometimes difficult process of translating them into practical plans that can be of service in the world. The effect of this meditative effort is to enhance the many ways in which the “power of the one Life” and the “love of the one soul” are working out through all true servers everywhere. The meeting will be held in the Reading Room of our offices at866 United Nations Plaza, Suite 482 and will include an exploration on the theme, followed by group discussion and meditation. Please call or email us if you will be attending, or contribute your thoughts prior to the meeting - we will share them with the group when possible.
Theme: Challenges on the path to human unity: Security Council Reform
The Aries New Moon is traditionally a time of new beginnings. It presents an opportunity to consider
possibilities on the path to human unity. We will explore this question as it relates to the need for reform within the most important body within the most important organization in the world – the Security Council of the United Nations. There are long-standing issues that have arisen whenever a consideration of the need for S.C. reform has been raised but one thing is agreed by all parties – reform is needed so that the council, which has not effectively changed since its inception in 1945, can emerge to more adequately reflect the changing structures of today’s world.
As the UN enters its eighth decade, it continues to inspire humanity. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights remains the world’s moral charter, and the SDGs promise to provide new guideposts for global development cooperation. Yet the UN’s ability to continue to fulfill its vast potential in a new and challenging century requires its member states to commit to support the organization with the resources, political backing, and reforms that this new era demands. Jeffrey Sachs
Questions for reflection and discussion:
What are the underlying causes obstructing the path towards human unity and the consequent need for reform within the Security Council? How can esoteric servers contribute to the resolution of these
