VI. Religious Workers

In view of the steady progress towards religious unity which has proceeded apace during the past 200 years, the work of the sixth group (The Reappearance of the Christ and the Externalisation of the Hierarchy, A.A. Bailey), as is also the case with the first group (telepathic communication) promises rapid results. This is, however, necessarily dependent upon the "skill in action" and the willingness of the group members and allied groups to proceed with slowness and tact.

The moment any idea enters the religious field, it gains immediate momentum from the fact that the outstanding characteristic of:

The human consciousness is the sense of the Innermost or the Real, a recognition of subjective destiny, and an innate knowledge of and reaching out to the Unknown God.

Therefore, any truth or presentation of truth or method which has in it the possibility of producing a nearer approach to divinity or a more rapid understanding of the "deeper Being" evokes an immediate response and reaction. There is consequently much need for caution and considered action.

It will be built around the periods of the Full Moon, wherein certain great Approaches will be made to the world of reality, also around two periods of massed Approaches to be made at the time of the major eclipse of the moon and of the sun during the year.

The two major Full Moon Approaches will be those of the Wesak Full Moon and the Full Moon of June - one hitherto consecrated to the Buddha Who embodied the wisdom of God, and the other to the Bodhisattva (known to Christians as the Christ) Who embodied the love of God.

Three major presentations of truth

The platform of the new world religion will have in it three major presentations of truth, or three major doctrines, if such an undesirable word can be permitted. It is with the elaboration of these three points of view, or evocations of truth, that the work of the sixth group of disciples will be concerned. They are:

1. The fact of the Spirit of God, both transcendent and immanent, will be demonstrated, and also a similar fact in relation to man. The mode of their approach to each other, via the soul, will be indicated. This aspect of the emerging truth might be called Transcendental Mysticism.

2. The fact of the divine quality of the Forces in nature and in man and the method of their utilisation for divine purposes by man. This might be called Transcendental Occultism.

3. The fact, implied in the first, that Humanity, as a Whole, is an expression of divinity, a complete expression, plus the allied fact of the divine nature and work of the planetary Hierarchy, and the mode of the Approach of these two groups, in group form, to each other. This might be called Transcendental Religion.

More than this we will not here indicate as we seek to touch briefly upon the remaining three seed groups.

We will, however, point out that we shall elaborate somewhat the -

Technique of the Presence of God, approaching it from a new angle, that of the Group, and also upon the Technique of Light. Two lesser Techniques we have at times called to your attention and with these we will later deal, for they are in the nature of approaches to the other two - the Technique of Indifference and the Technique of Service (Glamour: A World Problem, A. A. Bailey). As we study the divine Approaches, we shall see that they involve two parties or two groups - those found on the objective and those on the subjective side of life.
