The Nation and the World of Nations : Unity in Diversity
Reflections on the Path Towards World Unity
The New Moon falls on the Fourth of July, the day when the peoples of the USA celebrate their independence and national identity. It is surely no coincidence that this should happen during a very important election year.
During the new Moon meeting we will consider the relations between individual nations and the interdependent world of nations. What progress has been made on the path towards world unity since Alice Bailey issued the paper on The Problem of World Unity in 1946?
In this paper DK suggested:
What we need above all to see – as a result of spiritual maturity – is the abolition of those two principles which have wrought so much evil in the world and which are summed up in the two words: Sovereignty and Nationalism.
Alice A. Bailey, The Problem of International Unity, Chapter VI in The Problems of Humanity, pp. 167 – 181.
Thought for Pondering:
How do we see sovereignty and nationalism in the world of 2016? Are they still a source of evil? How have they shaped and conditioned our modern world?
