How Are the Objectives and Goals of the UN
Part of the Plan of Love and Light for Our Planet?
“Expression of divine love is still in the making; the world is not yet full of love and few there are that understand the true meaning of the word. But—speaking symbolically—when the United Nations has emerged into factual and actual power, the welfare of the world will then be assured.”1

The objectives of the United Nations are “to formulate a world plan which will eventuate in peace, security and right human relations.”2 In its hands lies the destiny of humanity. The goals and principal purpose of the United Nations, as defined in Article I of the Charter, is to “...achieve international cooperation in solving international problems of an economic, social, cultural or humanitarian character.” To that end, the Charter directs the Organization to promote higher standards of living conditions of economic and social progress and development. The United Nations offers a standing machinery and framework for international dialogue on major economic and social problems, and gives a high priority to development in our increasingly interdependent world. These are the challenges that both the United Nations and humanity are facing in working out the Plan of Love and Light for our Planet.

Let us digress for a moment and examine this from a cosmic perspective—examine the cosmic forces that have propelled us to this moment in time. It is written that “all manifestations and every point of crisis are symbolized by the symbol of a point within the circle, the focus of power within a sphere of influence.”3 We are all aware of our own personal points of crises where our circle of reference is relatively small. But in looking at cosmic forces, the circle encompasses our earth and beyond. These cosmic forces can also take incomparable time in fully manifesting. With the outpouring of energies spanning the 20th century we find a “point of crisis” which culminated in the rise and fall of the Axis powers. In following the Principle of Conflict, which resolves into the cosmic Principle of Harmony, the next manifestation was the “point of tension.” This resulted in the formation of the United Nations, which has laid the foundation—and the potential for the resolution of conflict.

Since the formation of the United Nations, our world has been seeking a form of stabilization, security and harmony. The next cosmic step is the “point of emergence,” and I believe we are at the threshold of this emergence. The dark cloud of materialism has been shattered which allows the sunlight to penetrate, bringing with it the opportunity for the Plan of Love and Light to come to fruition through the opportunities presented by the United Nations.

During this period of stabilization the UN has also been accumulating a wealth of knowledge and information concerning the earth and all its inhabitants, published and made available to the public through a wide dissemination system. For example, at New York’s Columbia University alone, there are numerous libraries in which this research can be accessed. This documentation of world facts and data has been collected along with the UN’s multidimensional work in social and economic development programs in and for the nations of the world, not to say anything of the UN’s extensive work in peacekeeping.

The United Nations has also set up a wide variety of websites on the Internet. Anyone with a computer and Internet availability can access these sites. Now, the big problem is HOW to disseminate these publications and this data throughout the world so that all individuals on the planet can become conscious of their world center, the United Nations, the Planetary Beacon of Love and Light.

In his millennium address, then Secretary-General Kofi Annan set the tone and theme for the new millennium. He summarized the work of the United Nations, stressing its role in humanity’s shared destiny. He stated, “Through the United Nations, we are working to preserve peace; outlaw weapons that kill and maim indiscriminately; bring mass murderers and war criminals to justice. Through the United Nations we are working together to defeat AIDs and other epidemics; control climate change; make clean air and water available to everyone; ensure that the global market benefits all of us, thus, allowing the poor to lift themselves out of poverty; make human rights a reality for everyone—and give all human beings real choices in life and a real say in decisions that affect their lives.”

I believe we can look forward to this coming “point of emergence” as a period when through the work of the United Nations, we will witness the manifestation of Love and Light on Earth.
