The Kingdom of God on Earth
from the work of the Tibetan (Djwhal Khul),
through Alice A. Bailey
It is of importance that you realize that today something new is happening. There is the emergence of a new kingdom in nature, the fifth kingdom; this is the Kingdom of God on earth, or the kingdom, of souls.
It is precipitating on earth and will be composed of those who are becoming group-conscious, and who can work in group formation. This will be possible, because people will have achieved a self-initiated perfection (even if relative in nature) and will be identified with certain group expansions in consciousness. It will also be because they have arrived at love of their fellow men, just as they have loved themselves in the past. Think on this with clarity, my brothers, and grasp if you can, the full significance of this last sentence.
Their work will largely be to summarize and make effective the work of those two great Sons of God, the Buddha and the Christ. As you know, One of them brought illumination to the world and embodied the principle of Wisdom--- the Other brought love to the world and embodied in himself the principle of Love.
How can the effectiveness of Their work be brought about?
The process will follow three lines:
i. Individual effort, made by the individual disciple, using the technique of detachment, of dispassion, and discrimination, which the Buddha taught.
ii. Group initiation, made possible by the self-initiated effort of individual disciples, following out the injunctions of the Christ and leading to a complete subordination of the personality and of the unit to the group interest and group good.
iii. Group endeavor, carried forward as a group, to love all beings and to apprehend and understand the true significance of the Aquarian technique of group love and work. (1-3/4)
2. Christ taught that the Kingdom of God was on Earth and told us to seek that Kingdom first and let all other things be of secondary importance for its sake.
That Kingdom has ever been with us, composed of all those who down the ages, have sought spiritual goals, liberated themselves from the limitations of the physical body, emotional controls and the obstructive mind. Its citizens are those who today (unknown to the majority) live in physical bodies, work for the welfare of humanity, use love instead of emotion as their general technique, and compose that great body of "illumined Minds" which guides the destiny of the world.
The Kingdom of God is not something which will descend on Earth when man is good enough! It is something which is functioning efficiently today and demanding recognition. It is an organized body which is already evoking recognition from those who do seek first the Kingdom of God, and discover thereby that the Kingdom they seek is already here. Christ and His disciples are known to be physically present on Earth, and the Kingdom which they rule, with its laws and modes of activity, is familiar to many and has been throughout the centuries.
Christ is the world Healer and Savior. He works because He is the embodied soul of all Reality. He works today, as He worked in Palestine two thousand years ago, through groups. There He worked through the three beloved disciples, through the twelve apostles, through the chosen seventy and the interested five hundred.
Now He works through His Masters and Their groups, and thereby greatly intensifies His efforts. He can and will work through all groups just insofar as they fit themselves for planned service, for the distribution of love, and come into conscious alignment with the great potency of the inner groups.
Those groups who have always proclaimed the physical Presence of the Christ, have so distorted the teaching by dogmatic assertions on unimportant details and by ridiculous claims that they have evoked little recognition of the underlying truth, nor have they portrayed a kingdom which is attractive. That Kingdom exists, but it is not a place of disciplines or golden harps, peopled by unintelligent fanatics, but a field of service and a place where every man has full scope for the exercise of his divinity in human service.

Reader, if you have not grasped — read again, after a while. The predestined is not accidental, The leaves fall in their time. And winter is but the harbinger of spring. All is revealed; all is attainable. I will cover you with My shield, if you but tend to your labors.

There is no salvation surer than that through devotion. One can forgive much where there is unswerving devotion. The man who is devoted in heart can be relied upon. It is cause for rejoicing when Hierarchy is upheld by devotion. At present it is especially needed. If yesterday's confusion seemed enormous, what can one say of tomorrow's? I have already prepared you for the growth of Armageddon, and you know that the black wings of darkness will not withstand the Fiery Sword. Be not astonished, the Battle increases!

Agni Yoga Teachings regarding sex
If we compare two individuals, of whom one dissipates the vital substance while the other consciously conserves it, we will be amazed at how much more sensitive the spiritual apparatus of the second becomes. The quality of his labors becomes entirely different, and the quantity of his projects and ideas multiplies. The centers of the solar plexus and brain are being heated, as it were, by an invisible fire.
This article was dictated by the Tibetan teacher, Djwhal Khul, in 1934. It is printed in the book, The Externalisation of the Hierarchy, pp. 3-20, published by the Lucis Publishing Company. The need for trained esotericists is more urgent today than it was then.
