  The Law of Group Progress can only begin to have a conscious effect in the life of the disciple who has been pledged and accepted.  

  THE LINK OF THE WORLD GROUPS It would be possible to go on listing the various developments which indicate to the onlooking Hierarchy that a disciple, or a group of disciples, are now ready for “more light. ” The major indication is, however, their reaction to the Law of Group Progress.  

 I would like here to give you some thoughts anent the new groups which come into functioning activity under the Law of Group Progress. It must be constantly remembered, as one considers these coming new groups, that they are primarily an experiment in Group Activity, and are not formed for the purpose of perfecting the individual member in any group. 

  d. ASTROLOGY AND THE NEW GROUPS This Law of Group Progress embodies one of the energies which have gradually been released over the past two centuries.  

  As has several times been pointed out to students, this law is connected with a certain realised impulse in the minds of men, and this is, in its turn, the effect of various types of energy, which are playing upon the earth. The name “Law of Group Progress” is the phrase given by human beings to a particular type of energy which is producing the coherence of units in a group, thus forming them into one living organism.  

  On the astral plane the linking is stronger and is based upon love of humanity; on the mental plane the major linking takes place, from the angle of the three worlds as a whole.

Such is the Way of Group Progress, and when this is being consummated, then the Law of Group Progress begins definitely to function and to control.  

  May I therefore close with these simple words: Please give us your aid, my brothers. SEED GROUPS IN THE NEW AGE July 1937 Earlier I gave you some thoughts anent the new groups which come into functioning activity under The Law of Group Progress.
