Dao means the path.

In this second analysis, we will consider the one true Dao that unites (goes through) all things. In order for us to manage the world and interpersonal relationships, relating those aspects seen in human, the divine unit of life, it is said: “With sincere intent, cultivate the self, the family, and the nation, thus bringing peace to the world.” In other words, “first he recognizes them in himself, then he sees them in every form in his environment, and finally he learns to relate these aspects of himself to the similar aspects in other forms of divine manifestation. Correct relation between forms will result in the harmonizing and right adjustment of physical plane life.” Such is the process, such is the ripple effect of the Dao that we seek, as it unfolds for a series of lives ahead.

We are today seeking those who can be taught to work in group formation and who can constitute one of the active units in the vast happenings that lie ahead, connected with that two-thirds of humanity who will stand upon the Path at the close of the age, and with that one-third who will be held over for later unfoldment. We are training men and women everywhere so that they can be sensitive to the Plan, sensitive to their group vibration, and thus able to co-operate intelligently with the unfolding purpose.” It is for the purpose of training students and aspirants so that group awareness may be developed that this has come to you and invited you to consider in this way. The majority of relatives to the path still do not see it in this way; rather they are absorbed in the invitation for individual reaction and self growth, for opportunity and for freedom. It is rare to find someone who actively seeks the spiritual essence of the teaching, for all life is opportunity and teaching is not transmitted only to give one opportunity. How does one then apply such teaching in the recognition of the true essence? Any student who thinks clearly and applies the teaching to his or her daily life is contributing most valuably to the group awareness.

attracting to the wisdom of heaven

    There is no doubt that we are among the most fortunate group of people in the world today. Because of our current position among the system (human and solar) in playing out the course of the next events that will determine the direction of our future culture and civilization, and the unique role and responsibility we possess in asserting what these next phases will be, the day will come when our efforts will not go unnoticed. Of such, our ability to impress upon future generations the work that was started by previous disciples will serve as the linking bridge for humanity. The goal or primary purpose is for us to individually determine, but its course of execution and the manner in which it will progress is already heavenly mandated. In other words, the gate of humanity’s evolutionary unfoldment has already been opened—a stream of events leading to another—and whether we choose to become a spectator to the currents as they unfold or make a deliberate effort to maneuver, define, and refine our own working direction is entirely up to us. The saying: “Only the person who drinks the water can tell how warm or cool it is,” highlights this message. We must decide how proactive we wish to be—to watch as others drink the water or to self-determine and self-regulate our own awareness and response to the tide of events. How warm or how cool it may be is of less concern to us than the actual act itself—never losing the taste of the goal.
