The Spiritual Work of the United Nations and the Liberation of Humanity
The Power of Focused Invocation
and the Spiritual Work of the United Nations
World Invocation Day, May 2007
Always we get—in time and space—what we invoke; and the knowledge of this fact, scientifically applied, will be one of the great liberating forces for humanity.
The Tibetan Master, Djwhal Khul in Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, by Alice A. Bailey
One of the emerging sciences of the New Age of Aquarius into which we are moving is the Science of Invocation. Evolving out of humanity's practice of prayer, meditation and ritual, this science is based on the Law of Love or attraction, emphasizing the relationship of the Soul in all forms.
As humanity learns to consciously focus the invocative cry of the suffering and oppressed masses, voicing its spiritual demand for light, liberation and understanding, so will humanity understand and strengthen the relationship between the inner spiritual life and the outer conditions.
This Science of Invocation is a recognition by the part of its relationship to the Whole; it is an awareness of the relationship between God immanent and God transcendent. This awareness will lead to the recognition that it is the good of the entire family of nations that must be sought over the good of any one nation or group of nations.
"The family of nations, viewed as a unit, its correct and proper interrelation, and the shouldering of responsibility for the one, or for the weak, must be the realised goal of all national enterprise; the resources of the entire planet must be shared collectively and it must be increasingly realised that the products of the earth, the gifts of the soil, the intellectual heritage of the nations, belong to the whole of mankind and to no one nation exclusively. No nation liveth unto itself, any more than any individual can happily so live; the nation or individual who attempts so to do must inevitably perish off the face of the earth." Thus, emphasizes the Tibetan Master Djwhal Khul in the book, The Externalisation of the Hierarchy.
And, although its progress in this direction is halting indeed, these are the goals underlying the work of the United Nations. Despite well-publicized disagreements over its role in world affairs, a recent survey undertaken by The Chicago Council on Global Affairs and the organization, WorldPublicOpinion.org, has recently found that publics around the world think the UN should be the vehicle for conflict resolution and international cooperation on a wide variety of pressing problems.
Addressing the results of the survey, Steven Kull, editor of WorldPublicOpinion.org, affirms that "While leaders of nation states may be wary of giving the United Nations more power, it is clear that publics around the world are comfortable with the idea of a stronger UN."
With these thoughts in mind, we once again invite you to the Seminar, "How Can Global Consciousness Respond to the Cry of the Least Developed Countries?" to be held Thursday, August 31st from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the Dag Hammarksjöld Room of the Millennium UN Plaza Hotel at One United Nations Plaza.
In observance of World Invocation Day, also known as the Festival of Humanity and the Festival of Goodwill, we invite you to join with us as we lend our voices, our hearts and minds to humanity's invocative cry for greater justice, unity and right human relations, with a special focus on the 50 Least Developed Countries of our world. Together, we can contribute to the healing of the nations and the fostering of world unity.
The Seminar will include keynote talks, sacred art and music, discussion and meditation. Featured will be
Ambassador Anwarul K. Chowdhury, UN Under-Secretary-General and High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States, addressing "The Cry of the Least Developed Countries," and
The Brilliant Holograms of the Dutch Graphic Design Artist, Janosh, on the Theme: "Stimulating Global Consciousness; Take Up Your Own Mastery."
Although, the Registration date for the Seminar has been extended until midnight, Tuesday, May 29 we encourage you to register as soon as possible because once the seating capacity of the Dag Hammarskjöld room has been reached, we cannot accept further registrations.

For those of you who cannot travel to New York City to be with us in person, we also ask you to join your invocative voices with ours. As always, the meditation outline, "The Spiritual Work of the United Nations and the Liberation of Humanity" is available for those who need it—in Spanish, Portuguese, Polish and in Russian.
The heart centre of humanity is created by the sum total of the hearts (symbolically speaking) of all those men and women of goodwill who are serving their fellowmen, sponsoring human welfare movements, working for the establishing of right human relations, and constantly offsetting the separativeness of the human mind through the inclusiveness of the divine love nature.
May we come together on this day of special opportunity to enliven humanity's heart centre.
In loving service,
