Using Meditation to Support the Work of the United Nations
"We need to do everything we can to improve the United Nations—that is, to make it more useful to the world's peoples, in whose name it was founded, and more exemplary in applying the universal values that all its members claim to accept."
For spiritually aware practitioners, one method of responding to Mr. Annan's appeal "to do everything we can to improve the United Nations" is to consider how we can more purposefully and skillfully use creative meditation and thought power as a planetary service to aid this organization that is the "hope of humanity." As students of meditation know, this science is not a passive reflective form of devotion, but rather, it is a positive, creative use of the mind, actively linking the inner, subjective and outer tangible worlds.
The subtle energies of the inner worlds take much time in producing their effects upon the objective, tangible plane of daily living; however, the process can be enhanced through the power inherent in the light of many minds meditating in unison.
Will you join us on Saturday, February 7th to consider how meditation can be used to support the work of the United Nations?
The meeting will include a talk considering the relationship between "The United Nations and the Destiny of Humanity," a second talk on using "Creative Meditation and Thought-form Building as a Planetary Service," as well as some astrological observations about the United Nations. The attached "Background Notes for Pondering" have been prepared from the materials of the Theosophical Society, the books of the Tibetan Master and the Agni Yoga Society.
As we know, it is only through a change in human consciousness that the suffering of humanity will eventually come to an end. And, it is only as spiritually aware people learn to "stand as a great army of implacable spiritual will" behind those who are seeking the upliftment and well-being of humanity that the necessary changes can occur.
In his New Year message, Secretary-General Kofi Annan made an appeal to make 2004 "the year when we begin to turn the tide" against ills that kill millions annually. We invite you to join us in responding to that appeal.
Those of you who are receiving this message number over 250 and we know that several of you share this work with your groups.
On behalf of a deeply suffering and overburdened humanity, can we visualize the potential impact on the work of the United Nations if each one of us directs the energies of light, love and the will-to-good to this organization? Will you join us in doing so?
In light and love,
