|The Externalization of the Hierarchy - Section II - The General World Picture|
|Why our planet and this solar system should have been
constituted the nursery for the seeds of separativeness and why this remnant of humanity,
far more advanced than ours, should have been destined to work out its future on our
earth, is hid in the knowledge of the Lord of Shamballa, and is unattainable knowledge for
you and, indeed, for many  in the Hierarchy. It is simply a fact to be accepted by
you. The solution will come, as I said, when the races regard the Jewish problem as a
humanitarian problem but also when the Jew does his share of understanding, love and right
action. This he does not yet do, speaking racially. He must let go of his own separative
tendencies and of his deep sense of persecution. He will do this latter with great
facility, when he grasps, as a race, the significance and inevitability of the Law of
Karma, and from a close study of the Old Testament and of the acts and deeds there claimed
by him as his racial acts and deeds (conquest, terrorism and cruelty), realizes that the
law is working out and incidentally releasing him for a greater future. There must, at the
same time, be a realization by the Jew and Gentile of equal responsibility and equal
liability for the present world difficulty.
The two forces to which I have been referring must, therefore, be taken into account by all disciples as they seek to serve in this critical cycle; these two forces must also be taken into your calculations as you start this new group work or your wrong idealisms and thoughts may hinder the group work. You must recognize theoretically the five forces (three major and two minor) which meet and clash in the human family at this time. It has been necessary for me to bring these facts to your attention. If disciples are to do group work together on mental levels, they must clear their minds of prejudice, hatreds and any tendency to superiority and criticism. You cannot work, as a group, if these ideas and thoughts are present, and I am preparing now to teach you some of the first stages of group work and usefulness. It would not have been necessary for me to deal with these world problems if you had been immune from emotional reactions to them, but very few of you have your minds clear from prejudice and free from hatred. Those few make the work possible and it is also possible for the rest of you to detach your minds from undue influence and wrong ideas.
I ask you, in this work, to concentrate upon the Shamballa and the Hierarchical forces. I ask you to regard  yourselves as pure and unclogged channels and to seek only to be linked with the soul of each and all, whose nature is pure love, realized synthesis and divine potency.
It is essential, however, in spite of the work to which I have called these groups and which - as you know - is intended to lay the basis for the work of the esoteric schools of the future, that the members of all the groups realize that exoteric group work must also be undertaken. Too many in these groups are satisfied with the significance of their own group work and permit it to usurp the place of objective service.
If it is so hard, my brothers, to arouse aspirants, such as yourselves, to urgent service and a full sense of responsibility; if men and women with all the information that you possess cannot be aroused to sacrificing effort, you can gain some idea of the magnitude of the task with which the Hierarchy is confronted at this time. You can realize, perhaps, the sense almost of frustration which could sweep over me (if I were limited by any time concept) when, for instance, those to whom I look for cooperation, are preoccupied with their own affairs have no sense of immediacy and prefer to concentrate upon their own development, their own families, their own problems, rather than achieve the larger world view which would lead to full cooperation. The averting of a world debacle is the aim of our effort and towards this aim I have asked your help.
