The new element in this teaching – collectivity and universality

‘I have sometimes said that our teaching was not new, but I think that this point needs a little clarification. All the spiritual teachings of the past were designed to help individuals to reach perfection. The means that enabled people to travel, communicate and propagate their ideas were very restricted. Generally speaking, each one was alone in seeking spiritual development and acquiring knowledge and spiritual powers, and could, therefore, contribute only indirectly to the good of the whole.

Humans sought the kingdom of God, but as individuals; they worked for the salvation of their own souls. But nowadays, with the increasingly sophisticated means of travel and information at our disposal (planes, radio and television), conditions are no longer what they were, and the possibilities for achieving the kingdom of God are at hand; distance no longer exists, people can communicate with each other and spread their ideas from one corner of the earth to another.

Unfortunately, the thing that has still not changed is the self-centred spirit of individualism and isolation. Inwardly, Brotherhood is neither understood nor practised, not only by those who work on the political level but even in the religious and spiritual teachings. Division, barriers, hostility and wars are rife, in every direction. Read More…

The teaching of the Universal White Brotherhood is not a new science or a new philosophy; it is simply a new perspective, a new trend, an ideal of collectivity and universality: all human beings are brothers and sisters, sons and daughters of the same heavenly Father and Mother, and they must be united like the cells of a single organism which all collaborate and work harmoniously together for the health and well-being of that organism. This is the new element that our teaching brings to the world.’ Read More…

    Thank you for posting these priceless words of love and light. And thank you for sending daily email broadcasts. I have not only learned so much, but have found that all the messages from Master Omraam I read daily are with me, guiding me through many challenges and confusions. Usually I feel that kind of steady guidance only after long hours of meditation, but Master Omraam’s words are so powerful and penetrating that a small passage can illuminate my mind, heart and soul. He revealed the essence of what true meditation is all about. Oh, by the way, I’ve also changed my eating habits :). Profound shifts are still going on :). Thank you to Master Omraam. Thank you, John & Valerie, for your tireless dedication to this work. One day when you look back you will be amazed at how powerfully it has touched people’s lives.
    Love & Blessings,
    Liping.
