97 - Higher Principles & Serving Humanity

  Torkom Saraydarian believed that all of humanity is one. All men and women of goodwill, working in all fields of human endeavor, working in their own areas of passion and expertise, to uplift human beings and to heal and bring opportunities for a good life to everyone in the world. All of us deserve to have a life filled with beauty and goodness; we all want to live in a righteous world with legal rights and opportunities; we all want to live a life of joy and we all want freedom to be who we want to be. Also, we want to have opportunities that when we strive, we can improve our life and we can in turn serve and help others. We want to live in an open society and not have doors shut in our faces. In living such a life and working to bring these principles to others, we become self-forgetful, harmless, and always relate with others through right expressions. It is time that all men and women of goodwill take our life expressions to a new level and express these principles in everything that we do. Here is a brief, but powerful excerpt from one of Torkom's writings:

       All of the seven groups of the New Group of World Servers are charged with one major rhythm. Whatever they do, they do for synthesis.
       Thus, people everywhere will gradually arrange their physical actions, emotional reactions, mental creativity, and spiritual aspirations and intentions in such a way that each of them becomes a note in the great symphony, a rhythm in the great symphony, so that not a single distorted note or expression exists in that symphony or the Cosmos. Toward that great goal the members of the New Group of World Servers direct the aspiration of humanity…
       The new age will not appear on earth if the members of the New Group of World Servers and all men and women of goodwill do not face their responsibilities and free themselves from their glamors, illusions, and inertia.

The Teachings of Christ, Vol. 2, pp. 113-115.

***The Teachings of Christ is a series of four volumes on the deeper meaning of the work of Christ, including birth and Christmas, Resurrection, Parables and stories, and how to use the Teachings of Christ to transform your life.

96 - The Army of Christ - New Group of World Servers

     Many thousands of people are celebrating this week, from December twenty-second to the twenty-ninth, the New Group of World Servers. What is the New Group of World Servers?
     This group is not a political group, nor is it a religious group. It does not belong to any religion, any party. It does not even have a name. The people who are in the New Group of World Servers do not even know that is their name. It is a very interesting group.
     How are we going to know these people? These people have no dogma, no doctrine, and they do not belong to any church, any party. They do not put labels on their forehead and say, “I am this, I am that.” We can know them by one thing: “By the fruits of them you will know.” What are their fruits? Their fruits are love, light, and beauty. If a man, or a woman, is working for light, to increase the light in the world, the light in his consciousness, in his family, in his group, in his nation, and in humanity, he is a member of the New Group of World Servers. When he is trying to increase the light with light, love, and beauty, these three things, he is a member of the New Group of World Servers. You can know them.

95 – Shine Your Light

           It is very important that you develop an interest in the light. Study about light; exercise and practice with light. Eventually, you will see the effects of light when you start practicing with it. In any difficulty that is happening, visualize the light and let the light or the flame burn the difficulty and you will be successful, or you will gain power to conquer the difficulty. Sometimes difficulties are beneficial because it is only through them that we grow in strength. If everything in our lives was good, we would become jelly fish. It is very good that difficulties hit our shores. Through them we become stronger and stronger and use that strength to destroy higher obstacles.
            What is the symbol of light and what does it actually do? First let us consider what light is. Light is radiation of your Inner Core. One day you will have a surprising experience of walking in darkness and there will be light all around you. Most of the time the light comes through your eyes and hands. You walk your path by the light that is coming from yourself, from within you.

94 - Isolated Unity

         "Isolated Unity" is a state of consciousness in which you are aware of the One Self in all forms in the whole existence, but you are isolated in space and time due to your individual existence, the limit of your consciousness, and the quantity of your karma. These three elements isolate you naturally from being fused with the whole, but if you are advanced enough in your awareness, you feel one with all that exists.
            Isolated unity is a realm in existence, though not many people are aware of it. Such an awareness is a very important achievement as it pressures the person gradually to orchestrate all his thoughts, words, emotions, and actions to be in harmony with the awareness of unity.

93 – Meditation Creates Seeing Eyes

Meditation raises the quality of our vibration, makes it more and more rhythmic, and reorients the circulation of our energies toward higher centers, toward higher dimensions, toward causal levels. That reorientation reverses the inclination
s or tendencies of our lower self toward matter and leads it instead toward the Self. Thus possessiveness and greed change into givingness and inclusiveness.
            This reversing process is the most critical time in our personality life. Unless through meditation and spiritual discipline we accomplish it, we face the conflict of two forces within us: the one that pulls us down to matter and to the world of results, and the one that wants us to be ourselves as a cause.
