New Moon Meeting

"STRENGTHENING THE HANDS OF THE NEW GROUP OF WORLD SERVERS"

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 library of our offices at 120 Wall St., 24th floor; it will include a brief talk on the theme The Movement Towards Community, group discussion and meditation. Please call or email us prior to the meeting. We can also register you automatically for each meeting if you let us know of your interest.

 

 

Theme: The Movement Towards Community

Throughout time people have lived in different types of communities, adapted to their particular culture and age. The growing challenges and increasingly unsustainable nature of contemporary life has led many people to explore how community can be vivified, modified and adapted to this emerging world. We will consider the idea of community – both broadly as a concept as well as practical possibilities for change.
 

Cooperation must be based upon sound rules. This teaches orderliness; that is, it helps the acquirement of a rhythm. Thus even in daily work are expressed the great laws of the Universe. It is especially needed to become accustomed from childhood to continuous labor. Let the better evolution be built upon labor as the measure of value.  (New Era Community, Agni Yoga series)

 Questions for reflection and discussion:
What does community mean to you and what qualities do you envision as emerging for communities in the coming era?
