“True service is the spontaneous outflow of a loving heart and an intelligent mind; it is the result of being in the right place and staying there; it is produced by the inevitable inflow of spiritual force and not by strenuous physical plane activity; it is the effect of a man’s being what he truly is, a divine Son of God, and not by the studied effect of his words or deeds.” Djwhal Khul

To those who ache to serve:

A CHALLENGE by A.A. Bailey

“I challenge the thinkers of the world to drop their sectarianism, their nationalism, and their partisanships, and in the spirit of brotherhood to work in their particular nation, regarding it as integral part of a great federation of nations, – a federation that now exists on the inner side, but waits for the activity of the world thinkers to bring it to materialisation on the outer side. I charge them to work in the cause of religion, and in the field of that particular religion in which they, by an accident of birth or choice, are interested, regarding each religion as part of the great world religion. They must look upon the activities of their group, society or organisation, as demanding their help, just in so far, as the principles on which they are founded, and the techniques which they employ, serve the general good, and develop the realisation of Brotherhood.

I ask you to drop your antagonisms and your antipathies, your hatreds and your racial differences, and to attempt to think in terms of the one family, the one life, and the one humanity. I would remind you that hatred and separateness have brought humanity to the present condition. I would add to that reminder, however, the fact that there is in the world today a large enough number of liberated men, to produce a change in the attitudes of mankind and in public opinion, if they measure up by an act of the will, to what they know and believe.

I challenge you also to make sacrifices; to give yourself and your time, and your money, and your interest, to carry these ideas to those around you, in your own environment, and to the group in which you find yourself, thus awakening your associates. I call you to a united effort to inculcate anew the ideas of brotherhood and of unity. I ask you to recognise your fellow workers in all the groups and to strengthen their hands. I ask you to seal your lips to words of hatred and of criticism, and to talk in terms of brotherhood and of group relationships. I beg of you to see to it that every day is for you a new day, in which you face new opportunity. Lose sight of your own affairs, your petty sorrows, worries and suspicions, in the urgency of the task to be done, and spread the cult of unity, of love and of harmlessness.

I also ask you to sever your connection with all groups which are seeking to destroy and to attack, no matter how sincere their motive. Range yourself on the side of the workers for constructive ends, who are fighting no other groups or organisations, and who have eliminated the word “anti” out of their vocabulary. Stand on the side of those who are silently and steadily building for the new order – an order which is founded on love, which builds under the impulse of brotherhood, and which possesses a realisation of brotherhood, which is based on the knowledge that we are, each and all, no matter what our race, the children of the One Father, and who have come to the realisation that the old ways of working must go, and the newer methods must be given a chance.

If you cannot yourself teach or preach or write, give of your thought and of your money, so that others can. Give of your hours and minutes of leisure, so as to set others free to serve the Plan; give of your money, so that the work of those associated with the New Group of World Servers may go forward with rapidity. Much time you waste on non-essentials. Many of you give little or nothing of time. The same is the case with money. Give as never before, and so make the physical aspects of the work possible. Some give of their very need, and the power they thereby release is great. Those on the inner side are grateful for the giving by those who can give only at great personal cost. Others give of what they can spare, and only when it needs no sacrifice to give. Let that condition also end, and give to the limit, with justice and understanding, so that the age of love and light may be more rapidly ushered in. I care not where or to whom you give, only that you give, – little if you have but little of time and money, much if you have much. Work and give , love and think, and aid those groups who are building and not destroying, loving and not attacking, lifting and not tearing down.

I challenge you above all to a deeper life, and I implore you for the sake of your fellow men to strengthen your contact with your own soul, so that you will have done your share in making revelation possible; so that you will have served your part in bringing in the light, and will therefore be in a position to take advantage of that new light and new information, and so be better able to point the way and clear the path for the bewildered seeker at that time. Those who are not ready for the coming events, will be blinded by the emerging light, and bewildered by the revealing wonder; they will be swept by the living breath of God, and it is to you that we look to fit them for the event.

“ . . .divorce your mind from the (fixed idea) that the (one on the path) works because he knows. I would reverse the statement and say he knows because he works. There is no point of attainment at which the (Teacher) says to the (student): Now you know, and therefore you can work. Rather, it is: Now you serve and work, and in so doing you are embarked upon a new and difficult voyage of discovery; you will discover reality progressively and arrive at whole areas of expression, because you serve. Resulting from this service, certain powers and energies will manifest, and your ability to use them will indicate to you, to your fellow (students), and to the world that you are a worker, fully conscious upon the inner side of life.” A.A. Bailey, Serving Humanity, page 370/P4 (6-282)

“Be of good cheer, for there is no true defeat of the human spirit; there is no final extinction of the divine in man, for divinity ever rises triumphant from the darkest pit of hell. There is need, however, to overcome the inertia of the material nature in response to human need, individually and by the nations not engrossed with the essentials of the situation. This shows signs of happening. There is no power on Earth which can prevent the advance of man towards his destined goal, and no combination of powers can hold him back.”
Serving Humanity, a compilation by A.A. Bailey

Know the power of your words and thoughts! Thus, the mantram of power, enabling your greatest service to humanity is in its diligent daily proclamation:

The Great Invocation

(‘A Prayer for Power and Light,’ a revision by Viveka, 1/2010. The original prayer requests Christ to return; since He has, we can freely pray this revision. It also includes the name of GOD, easing the minds of those who desire to specifically acknowledge to WHOM they are praying. As spiritual growth and understanding is inevitable through the sincere and diligent performance of this service, all in this service will come to know we are ONE with Him. This, then, is your greatest service.)

From the point of Light within Your Mind, God
Let That Light stream forth into the minds of man
Let That Light permeate Earth and mankind.

From the point of Love within Your Heart, God
Let That Love stream forth into the hearts of man
Let That Love, Christ, and Goodwill permeate Earth and mankind.

From the centre which we know as Your Will, God
Let divine purpose guide the little wills of man
The purpose which Your Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the human race
Let Your Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power perfect Your Plan on Earth, God, that Earth be a sacred planet, a beacon of inspiration, and a testament to Your Strength, in all Your cosmoses and universes. So be it.

NOTE: “The Great Invocation is a prayer of ancient origin–it is a mantric formula of tremendous potency that is helping to bring about changes and readjustments within all aspects of our planetary life. It is a world prayer, used by people of all faiths and spiritual inclinations, to aid our planet and humanity during this difficult transition period. It brings the faithful speaker of the mantram into recognition and agreement with God for His Plan for Earth and Mankind.

If you have not yet had the practice of visualization – especially that of the TRIANGLES, it is important you do so. VISUALIZING, held steady and clear while speaking your mantrams, is powerful indeed to your spiritual growth and union with God. The focused use of the Great Invocation causes powerful changes in one’s life — one’s attitudes, intentions, character and goals will be changed and made spiritually useful. “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he” is a basic law in nature – a principle of God; the constant turning of the mind to the need for light and the prospect of illumination cannot and will not be ineffectual.

In all things remember: “EFFORT COUNTS.”
