The group gathered 2 hours before the Aquarius full moon meditation meeting.
After the alignment the group have had a inspired reflection and exchanging of ideas which was very invocative - This could be clearly perceived at the meditation which followed the discussion.
The group had gone through all the Agenda questions taken one by one and trying to link and associate the roundtable theme with the key note of Aquarius, the 11th labour of Hercules, and the key note of the spiritual year the 'massive intention', however it has focused at question 5 and at the application aspect of the given theme , and at the practical steps to be taken by the group and by the NGWS.
Resuming: Massive intent/public opinion/Service/Using mind-soul thought/Cleansing of the world conditions by the NGWS.
Actually the normal line of our group work is based on the fact of the power of thought and on the practice and training on the science of impression following the techniques given by the Tibetan, because of this, the fact of the 'raincloud of knowable things' is a recurrent theme.
So the group pondered on the 'what' and 'how' of the process of creating clouds and precipitating it (invoking/evoking) - about the difference between cloud and rain, the many references about clouds like the clouds of glamour/the coming of Christ from the clouds/ the fact that clouds are made of water -(condensation of water - the acceleration of the particles of water, their expansion as a result of its acceleration by the action of fire or heat and the consequent evaporation - water X emotion, and fire X mind - transmutation and transformation being the result of the acceleration of vibration by the use of mind and by the use of thought, or the transmutation of force (personality) in energy (soul) and so on.....).
Someone remembered that at the north of Brazil there is a huge area of permanent drought, and there is no rain in that region, however there are lots of huge clouds, but there is not precipitation. To create rain, sometimes rockets are launched containing a kind of nitrate. It is not only the rocket that makes the precipitation, a special substance within the rocket is needed.
The clouds: Union of water (Aspiration/heart - humanity) and Fire (Thought/Mind -Hierarchy).
Precipitation: Distilled water (Love - the new ideas - the Christ-"the Water of Life")
The rocket: (the defined, clear, shaped and direct thought)
The nitrate: The substance 'inside the rocket' the power, the energy of the Will (If there is no will, there is no precipitation).
The 'war-head': Those who meditate-the NGWS
The launching foundation - Public Opinion the mass intent.
During the discussion it was quoted that "....what is taking place at the world today is the transference of the energy of the planetary solar plexus, to the planetary heart centre. The force of cupidity, aggression, glamour and greed will be transmuted in the present furnace of pain and fiery agony and will be raised into the heart centre". Esoteric Astrology, Alice A. Bailey, page 520
The group asked itself, who is going to raise it?
This quotation brought about a symbol that the group has been working for sometime and that matched with the flow of thoughts related to the themes we were pondering on. Then the group reinforced the symbol because of its relation to the task of Aquarius. The symbol pondered on was the passage found at the Gospel where Christ (soul ) beside a well (water 'below', emotion, solar plexus), said that He was thirsty (need of love, need of peace) and asked for water to a woman (the Samaritan - personality-humanity). He also said that if the woman would give Him the water, He would give her a kind of water that she would never feel thirst again.
The Christ was talking about the water from 'above', the energy of love (Soul), the water of life (buddhic/will energy), His energy, the Christic energy (this time with 2nd . and 1st .ray energies together).
So, to take the water up from the bottom of the well (solar plexus), the woman (mind-personality-humanity) needs a pail, a vase, an amphora (heart centre), a rope (a thread - the antahkarana) and an agent or a pulley (the Ajna centre/the planetary Hercules/the NGWS).
The invocative appeal of humanity (the thirst), expressed by the public opinion, must be carried up by the NGWS, which at the same time brings down the assuaging water from the water carrier. The NGWS is the amphora, the heart centre of humanity and this amphora must pour water for the thirsty men. The water must be brought down from the reservoir of love, the Christ the Hierarchy from the Water carrier.
The public opinion is the externalisation of the esoteric energies. It is the work of those who meditate, the members of the NGWS to invoke these esoteric energies that fuel public opinion.
Special attention and support must be given to the United Nations, which the group sees as the "periphery" of the NGWS, as the pituitary body while the NGWS is the pineal body. The UN as the 'outer side of the Hierarchy, and the NGWS, as the link between the two'. In this triangle, the Hierarchy is the 1st aspect, the NGWS, is the 2nd aspect and the UN, the 3rd aspect-the activity and form aspect.
The work of the NGWS and the UN, are one and the same. The work of the Hierarchy, the NWGS and the UN, must be done, hand by hand, and can not be looked at separately. The Hierarchy and the Christ act behind the scenes, giving support, nurturing, and feeding while the NGWS brings this energy down and pours it directly into the UN, and through it into the world.
At the same time the cleansing of the world conditions, must be done by the NGWS, the planetary Hercules (Planetary Ajna centre), who accelerate the recognition of the dirt, taking it up to be transmuted by the air, the light, the sun-the Christ, and after that, the NGWS brings down to earth the lifted and transmuted water, as 'water of life', as a healing agent, as union and peace.
We reinforce also the idea that the Aquarian Age is the age of the materialisation of the ideal. Everything must happen right here at the 3rd aspect or the outer world, not in a future heaven. We are living the process of establishing of the kingdom of God on earth.
The members of the NGWS, must see this moment as one of greatest opportunity that is brought though crises, however it is also a moment of greatest danger. Those who meditate must keep alert to this moment of opportunity and do their job. The key to protection and to right action is inclusiveness, holding a wider view, and expansion of consciousness, unification and unity. This can be reached through the growth of sensibility to telepathic impression through complete self-decentralisation and self-forgetfulness.
We finished the reflection by sounding the Mantram of the New Group of World Servers, and then went into group meditation linking the Spiritual work of the UN with the theme "Restoring the Plan on Earth".
The following quotation from the book, Esoteric Astrology by Alice A. Bailey (p. 217) seems especially relevant to this work. "Will the world Hercules lift this problem up into heaven and "elevate the hydra" of passion and hate, of greed and aggression, and of selfishness and ambition up into the region of the soul? Or will it carry the whole matter down on to the physical plane with the inevitable corollary of world disaster, world war and death? Such are the problems with which the guiding Hierarchy is facing"
A few years ago, in doing my own evening reviews, I realised that I had lived my life in a reaction to fear. I began to ponder on this and to take steps within myself to change these attitudes. I also began to realize that this was common for all humanity.
As the weeks went by, I discovered that I was not at all alone in these observations . I was "surfing" the TV (which I rarely do) and noted that on a talk show (which I never watch) there was a group of women discussing their fears. A few days later I saw an advertisement for a book dealing with fear in which the author said it was the great problem of mankind. All of a sudden, fear was on the tongue of literally millions of people.
Recently I have been dealing with the concept of Love casting out fear and this has now come to my attention as being a subject of mass consciousness.
I mention this because either I was "picking up" on topics of mass consciousness or I was sparking subconsciously a surge in mass consciousness. We are not alone in our thinking - in fact, those of us who are aware of the fact that energy follows thought, need to be monitoring our thinking 24/7 to maintain thought patterns of harmlessness and the good of the whole.
We thus become part of the process of awakening to "that which is on the verge of precipitation", those thought forms stemming from the "raincloud of knowable things", that energy storehouse which originates in the Universal Mind, and becoming sensitized enough to be receptive to the Hierarchical concepts being transmitted through the masters and higher disciples. This we do through meditation.
However, as we learn to come together in our meditation with other spiritual seekers in a unity of spirit, an "affirmation of united work", we can become a potent energy for good in these turbulent times. With the change of the centuries - 1999 to the year 2000, new energies became part of our consciousness, energies that had also been budding with the coming in of the Aquarian age. These thought energies concern the change-over from being self-centered (at best sacrificial) and self-serving and competitive, to being group centered and co-operative. This applies not only to individuals but also to groups and to communities and to nations.
But these energies are very powerful and are, from a human standpoint, non-emotional and neutral. How they play out in the world depends on the nature of the receiving vehicle, and they can therefore be helpful or hindering, constructive or destructive. At this time we are becoming very aware of the destructive potential. In many instances, this leaves us feeling powerless and saying, Well, there is nothing I can do and it is in the hands of fate.
But we as more enlightened thinkers know that our thought patterns are very powerful and most particularly so when we engage in group work, such as this meeting. There is enormous power for good existing in our consciousness! We can be instrumental in bringing about changes for good, for the betterment of society, not for just one faction or one nation or one group, but for the good of all mankind.
These thought changes can be expressed in more enlightened world public opinion - one that recognizes the unity of peoples not only with each other but nationally and in regards to the other kingdoms, those of the flora and fauna and mineral. When we come from this unified point of view, we are linking up with very strong spiritual impulses which can change things "in the twinkling of an eye".
But we need to be active in our esoteric links with others, such as triangles, to strengthen the hands of all those who are working toward the incoming possibilities of harmony, albeit through conflict. This is an ongoing conscious process and will succeed if we put enough of our own energy and effort into the work.
One of the areas which can benefit from our united consciousness for good is that of the U.N. It has been much criticized but as former President Ford once said, if we didn't have the U.N., we would have to have something else.
But our focused goodwill energy can help those who are working there to find solutions for world problems. All of this is still in an embryo stage - one day it will be common practice, but today it needs the energies of all those workers known as the New Group of World servers. So let us carry on, being confident that our small individual endeavors when linked with others of the same mind set will indeed invoke those potent energies which can change the world.
A number of years ago (when the internet was in planning stages), in a morning musing, I saw the globe connected by telecommunications and then something occurred to interrupt all of it. At that point, all who were accustomed to quick communication were horrified and then realized that they could communicate without machines. It now occurs for me as the illustration of a level of consciousness emerging. Thought management and empowerment is a frontier.

2 In the book, A Treatise on White Magic, authored by Alice A. Bailey, the Tibetan Master suggests the use of this brief mantram every day at 5:00 p.m. "It would be of value if each student would link up every day at five o'clock by an act of the will with this rapidly integrating group of servers, mystics and brothers. To this end it might be wise to commit to memory the following brief dedication to be said silently at that hour with the attention focussed in the head." (p. 261)
