There is an increasing recognition of the powerof constructive thought. This power can beemployed on a worldwide scale for spiritualpurposes if each one tries to understand thespiritual need of the world.Atriangle is a group of three people who linkeach day in thought for a few minutes ofcreative meditation. They need not necessarilylive in the same locality, and many internationaltriangles exist.Each day members sit quietly for a few minutesand link mentally with other members of theirtriangle, or triangles. They invoke the energiesof light and goodwill, visualising these energiesas circulating through the three focal points ofeach triangle, and pouring out through thenetwork of triangles surrounding the planet. Atthe same time they repeat the Great Invocation,thus helping to form a channel for thedownpouring of light and love into theconsciousness of humanity.The work takes only a few minutes to performand can be fitted into the most crowdedprogramme. It is not necessary for members tosynchronise the time at which the work is done,as once a triangle is built and functioning, it canbe vitalised by any one of its members.All men and women of goodwill who are willingto do the work outlined above and accept theworld service objectives of Triangles are invitedto participate. There are no other requirementsor membership subscription. The financialneeds of the work are provided solely andentirely by gifts of members and friends.The Great Invocation is a world prayertranslated into over seventy-five languages anddialects, and is used by all members ofTriangles. It expresses certain central truths:That there exists a basic Intelligence to Whomwe give the name of God.That there is a divine evolutionary Plan in theuniverse – the motivating power of which islove.That a great Individuality called by Christiansthe Christ – the World Teacher – came to Earthand embodied that love so that we couldunderstand that love and intelligence areeffects of the Purpose, and the Will, and thePlan of God. Many religions believe in a WorldTeacher, knowing Him under such names asThe Lord Maitreya, the Imam Mahdi, and theMessiah.The truth that only through humanity itself canthe divine Plan work out.
From the point of Light within the Mind of GodLet light stream forth into the minds of men.Let Light descend on Earth.From the point of Love within the Heart of GodLet love stream forth into the hearts of men.May Christ return to Earth.From the centre where the Will of God is knownLet purpose guide the little wills of men –The purpose which the Masters know and serve.From the centre which we call the race of menLet the Plan of Love and Light work outAnd may it seal the door where evil dwells.Let Light and Love and Power restore the Planon Earth.
