In our Triangles work we are being taught that the world has a spiritual destiny, and that behind evolution there is an abiding purpose, which we can call the Plan of God. The Plan works out through humanity. We are responsible for understanding it, and for doing what we can through our daily living to express its meaning and significance.
Triangles aid the divine Plan by establishing right human relations and to spread goodwill and understanding (light) amongst all peoples through the power of constructive thought. This power can be employed on a worldwide scale for spiritual purposes if each one tries to understand the spiritual need of the world.
A triangle is a group of three people who link each day in thought for a few minutes of creative meditation. They invoke the energies of light and goodwill, visualising these energies as circulating through the three focal points of each triangle, and pouring out through the network of triangles surrounding the planet. They see the network:
· Link all triangle units and relating all points of light throughout the world.
· Relating the world of spiritual realities – the Spiritual Hierarchy, to the world of experience – humanity; and acting as a channel of distribution within humanity for the spiritual energies pouring through the Hierarchy.
· Transforming the planetary etheric vehicle to receive and circulate the energies of the soul and the spiritual triad [spirit]: Will, Love, Light; Atma Buddhi Manas.
At the same time they sound the Great Invocation, and so help to form a channel for the down-pouring of light and love into the consciousness of humanity.
The work takes only a few minutes to perform and can be fitted into the most crowded programme.
Our aim is to enlarge the work of the Triangles so that, subjectively and etherically, light and goodwill may envelop the earth.
Triangles work aids the divine Plan by working for the following objectives:
•To establish right human relations and to spread goodwill and understanding (light) among all peoples.
•To raise the level of human consciousness and to transform the mental and spiritual climate of the planet.
•To strengthen and support the work of the men and women of goodwill in the world.
•To provide a reservoir of thought and to inspire practical and constructive action on behalf of humanity.
The Tibetan Master, DK, supplied the following information:
In this world crisis, the origin of the network in both its aspects is hierarchical; the Masters work in substance (i.e., light) though not with matter; the work to be done by Triangle members is consequently purely mental and hence exceedingly powerful—this of course when rightly done. "Energy follows thought" and the work of the Triangles is that of directing thought. The work therefore falls into two categories: that of invoking divine aid (to use Christian phraseology) and then—through faith and acceptance—directing the energies of light and love (which have been invoked) to all men everywhere. They will, from the popular attitude, be registered as illumination and goodwill. It is a deeply scientific work but fundamentally simple. Invocation, prayer or aspiration, meditation—it matters not what word you use—by means of these three methods spiritual energies are tapped and brought into activity. By clear thinking, directed thought and mental perception, they can be made objects of human desire. Ideas are simply channels for new and desired divine energies; ideals are these ideas changed or reduced into thought forms, and thus presented to the public. Ideas telepathically become ideals, which is another phrasing of the old law, "energy follows thought."
The work of the network of light and goodwill, focussed on the plane of mind, is the utilisation of this knowledge in order to affect the public consciousness. These are points which should be simplified and gradually taught, and in the clearest language, to all Triangle members. The work of the [Page 171] Triangles is to work with the minds of men, and with a factor which is used and exploited by leaders everywhere; the effort is to impress these minds with certain ideas which are necessary to human progress. People recognise the present darkness and misery, and consequently welcome light; men are tired of hating and fighting, and therefore welcome goodwill.
