The Esoteric Workers and the Hierarchy of Enlightened Beings
Kathy Newburn
Radiance we are and power. We stand forever with our hands stretched out, linking the heavens and the earth, the inner world of meaning and the subtle world of glamour.
We reach into the Light and bring it down to meet the need. We reach into the silent Place and bring from thence the gift of understanding. Thus with the light we work and turn the darkness into day.1

The spiritual workers of the world provide that mediating point between the vertical and horizontal axes of the even-armed cross of discipleship service. In our daily lives we construct a bridge between the inner and outer worlds. How we do that, what we accept as our individual responsibilities, is up to us.

At this critical and pivotal time in humanity's history, people are vitally needed to bring forward certain key ideas to greater public awareness at this time of transition. There is so much that needs to be done in the world. And there are many workers, many good workers who are available to work in other fields, in the more humanitarian and educational movements of the world. And while this work is vitally needed it is not necessarily the work that the esoteric and spiritual workers of the world should undertake.

There are many others that can undertake this work and who can surely do so in a more effective manner than can the esoteric workers whose ear is tuned to a different, albeit complementary, call and vibration. Those within this community have to work in the manner that is our particular dharma to undertake and this relates specifically to the spiritual work of the world. There are relatively few people willing and able to do this work and if we do not accept this responsibility, who will?

There are specific key ideas that we are asked to put forward at this time. One of these is this whole idea of the spiritual Hierarchy of the planet—the group of Enlightened Beings who stand behind the scenes of our planetary life. This idea is so important right now because the Masters are now preparing to come forward to outer recognition and humanity needs to be prepared for this recognition. And so it is the responsibility of the esoteric group workers to bring forward this idea of the Hierarchy in a clear, concise and sane manner because the few people who are talking about these things often do so in a manner that distorts and travesties the whole idea.

This idea of Hierarchy brings great hope. I know that when I first heard about it when I was 20 years old it made perfect sense to me and it was such a great revelation for my life and contributed to the expansion of my heart as a young person. But I also know that many people do not believe in these things, especially those who possess a more rational, concrete-minded approach to life and events. But nonetheless there are likewise many others, particularly among the young, for whom this idea, if presented with a measure of wisdom, could hold great appeal and could prove instrumental in changing their lives and reorienting their life direction into alignment with the Plan for our planet that is unfolding at this time. And this is the work that needs to be done in an organized and effective manner. This is something that this worldwide group of workers can do.

The push is now on as we move towards 2025, the time when the stage will be set for the timing of the externalization of certain members of the Hierarchy onto the physical plane, to be followed by the reappearance of the World Teacher. If we hold this reality in consciousness and set our intention to aid in the process, opportunities will arise in our lives that we can seize and make of spiritual significance. Above all else, we are asked to tell all people everywhere that the Masters and their serving groups are doing all they can to bring order out of chaos; that there is a Plan and that nothing can possibly stop the realization of that Plan; that the Hierarchy stands and the World Teacher stands, and They have stood, for thousands of years as the embodiment of the accumulated Wisdom of the ages. Above all else we're asked to tell people that God is Love, the Hierarchy is Love and that the World Teacher is coming because He loves humanity. The esoteric workers are called upon to recollect their mediating role and strive to their utmost in order to cooperate with this stupendous externalization, which is the objective of the ages.
