The Law of Right Human Relations

Read about the Principle of Goodwill,
ensouling the Law of Right Human Relations.


The energy of right human relations is said to be a "subsidiary expression of the energy of Love-Wisdom," the first of the great outpouring energies, and the keynote of this, the second solar system. Love-Wisdom is compassionate, inclusive, wise, non-emotional, and includes both Light and Will, as well as Purpose. Wisdom links Hierarchy ~ the Soul, the Heart Center ~ with Shamballa, the Center of Life and Spirit.

Impulsing right human relations, goodwill is the activator of constructive changes between nations, communities, and individuals. In times of world upheaval, the development and practice of right human relations presents a key to the vision which is to be precipitated into the consciousness of the world family. The visualization of right human relations as a living, flowing current of Light, Love, and Purpose creates a network of these qualities surrounding the planet.

The energy of right human relations, related as it is to the energy of Love-Wisdom, is an essential part of the quality of the second ray. This energy is magnetic and draws individuals together for right understanding and betterment.

The energy of right human relations is also said to be related "in a peculiar way" to the first ray of Will and Purpose. In this connection, the Tibetan has indicated that the final resolution of this planetary experiment and process will come through the joint work of the first and second rays.

It is apparent that the Law of Right Human Relations is empowered by the Life, Spirit, Fire, Power, and Will of Monadic Essence as well as by the compassionate, intuitive inclusiveness and understanding Love of the Soul and the Heart. Through this alignment

... the direct line or thread of God's will reaches now from the highest place to the lowest point, and can in due time become a cable of ascension for the sons of men and of descent for the loving, living spirit of God.
      - The Reappearance of the Christ, p. 53

The practice of right relations begins within one's self, bringing an alignment uniting brain, emotional body, mental vehicle and, eventually, the Soul. Right relationship between the individual, family and friends follows. Finally right group relations, right national and international relations unfold. Each step leads toward a more comprehensive Whole.

The practice of Right Human Relations will lead to the subsequent demonstration of humanity's innate divinity. Yet as the Science of Relationship is not yet developed, its deeper implications are not yet realized.

One of the objectives now before us (which must be understood esoterically ~ that is in terms of energy ~ and not literally) is a sense of planetary relationship. Beyond the emphasis laid on the relation of the individual to the Higher Self, or Soul, to the Master and to the Ashram, awareness is now consciously expanding toward a realization upward into kingdoms previously unrecognized or unknown, and downward into the subhuman kingdoms, inward towards divinity itself, and outward into the human environment, thus moving consciousness toward synthesis and wholeness, toward a sense of the Eternal, and toward the totality of all Life.

This effort to establish right human relations demands organization, business astuteness, foresight, psychology, courage, and persistence. It needs dedicated, trained workers, money, and all the expertise of living harmoniously in today's world. The anchoring of right human relations is an aspect of the Divine Will, Intent, and Purpose of the Lord of the World in every field of His manifested Life. This essential anchoring must be done by people of goodwill, by disciples and initiates in human form in physical plane life.

It is suggested in The Rays and the Initiations (pp. 737–738), that "the goal of all endeavor upon our planet is right relations between man and man, between man and God, between all the expressions of divine life from the tiniest atom up and on into infinity."

... In reality, in the circle of right relationship, there is no above and no below, no in or out; all are together in the sacred circle ....

Yet all begins in the mind. To make things right, to bring things to clarity, that is our duty, that is the gift and responsibility of the human being at this time. In this way each of us can create healing sanctuary in our own minds, in our own lives, calling all our relations to enlightened action.
   - Voices of Our Ancestors, Cherokee Teaching from the Wisdom Fire, p. 12, Dhyani Ywahoo

In this period of shift and change, the anchoring of right human relations in all aspects of our planetary life will create a climate and an environment in which a new world order can emerge and continue to flourish.

A new expansion of consciousness is imminent, with a recognition of

... those major spiritual concepts of love, life and relationship which have hovered ever in the background of man's thinking and which are now on the verge of right expression; recognition of the true brotherhood of man, based on the one divine life, working through the one soul and expressing itself through the one humanity; recognition, therefore, of relationship both to the divine life throughout the world and to mankind itself. It is this developing spiritual attitude which will lead to right human relations and eventual world peace.
   - The Reappearance of the Christ, p. 41

People of goodwill exist in every country, ready to move into constructive activity, ready to become agents, through education and training, ready to bring into expression that which has never before existed ~ right human relations.

Thus, from the highest spiritual Being upon our planet, through the graded spiritual groups of enlightened and perfected men who work upon the inner side of life, on into the outer world of daily living where thinking, loving men and women serve, the tide of the new life sweeps. The Plan is ready for immediate application and intelligent implementing; the workers are there and the power to work is adequate to the need. Above all else, the Hierarchy stands and the Christ stands ready to issue forth and demonstrate reality.
   - The Reappearance of the Chnst, p. 95

Behind the Law of Right Human Relations a continuous Life Force pulsates, impelling consciousness to constructive, right relationships. There also is an impersonal, dispassionate, unconditional love that is both magnetic and radiatory. Humanity is its agent and, eventually, its embodiment in the everyday world of form life.

The keynote of the present phase of the Ageless Age, we are told, is right human relations. It is said, also, that an "initiate relationship" already exists between the three Centers of Humanity (Creative Intelligence), Hierarchy (Creative Love), and Shamballa (Creative Will and Purpose). It is this "spiritual and spiritually sensed relationship" which is at present finding objective expression in the worldwide effort to establish right relationship in all dimensions and in all directions. Moreover, behind this effort to establish right relationship, humanity's karmic urge to harmony and unanimity is exerting pressure.

The sequence of three major Laws and three Principles, as given by the Tibetan, begins with the Law of Right Human Relations. This first Law is the one most widely recognized and understood, and the one most easily accessible to the general public and the one of particular interest during this cycle.
