Theme:  New and Emerging Truths

 

This meeting will explore the idea of “New and Emerging Truths” as it relates to culture and right human relations. The Tibetan said, “A war is starting between the selfish monied interests and the mass of humanity who demand fair play and a right share of the world’s wealth” (Problems of Humanity, p 72). Pondering on the quote below in tandem with the articles related to social equality, we’ll consider how world servers can work upon the plane of mind and heart to support fair play and the sharing of our world’s wealth.


I would remind you here that all civilizations and cultures are externalizations—modified, qualified and adapted to racial and national needs—of the potent, vibrating and planned activity of the world initiates and disciples who constitute the Hierarchy of the time. Their plans, Their thinking and Their living potency pour out ceaselessly and affect the consciousness of Their disciples; these latter step down the inflowing energies so that the thinkers and idealists can grasp these new emerging truths more accurately. Eventually the truths thus grasped change the consciousness of humanity as a whole and raise it—if you like that phrase; thus modes of daily living, civilised methods of conduct and cultural developments eventuate. All this is traceable to the group of initiates upon the inner side who thus serve their fellowmen and carry forward, consciously and with intent, the Law of Evolution. . . . t is a stage of Being which is connected with the Law of Sacrifice—the law which governs those states of being which grow out of the establishment of right human relations.   – Discipleship in the New Age, Volume II, p. 271

 

Question for reflection and discussion:
How are the “new and emerging truths” related to social equality in the culture at this time influencing right human relations and what role should world servers play? Is the emergent dialogue on social equality moving in a more inclusive direction?
