Theme: A Call to Disarm

This misappropriation of human resources is one of the most pressing problems confronting humanity at this time.  Nowhere is this misappropriation more glaringly apparent than in relation to the arms race. Total arms sales for 2016 totaled $31 billion, yet this situation receives scant attention from the media or the public at large.  As we all know, if the money currently spent on arms was turned towards rebuilding the shrine of human living, our world would be a vastly different place.  Let us use the spiritual atmosphere being set up in the planet in the approach to Wesak—using the energy of Taurus which governs the group of world servers-- to turn the group gaze towards the creation of a thoughtform of solution to this pressing problem.

Questions for reflection and discussion:
What more can we do, as members of the heart center of the group of world servers, to contribute towards ending the arms race?
