Cooperative Leadership

According to the organizers of the world-economic forum in Davos 2018 we have generally a set of three types of leadership:

(1) Leadership based on protectionism, nationalism and xenophobia.

 (2)Leadership principle based on examination and complexity from a scientific perspective.

(3) System Leadership.


From a disciples' view we have spiritual economic "Laws & Principles" which are based on:

1. The Law of Right Use

-The Principle of Sharing
-The Principle of Supply and Demand
-The Principle of Democratic Participation in the One Life

2. The Law of Right Activity:

-The Principle of Individuality
-The Principle of Equality
-The Principle of Grace

3. The Law of Right Planning:

-The Principle of Divine Prototype
-The Principle of Relative Appearance
-The Principle of Sequential Change

4. The Law of Periodicity:

-The Cycle of Logoic Re-evaluation and Re-adjustment of His Body of Appearance.
-The Cycle of Buddhic Reappearance.
-The Cycle of Initiatory Evolution.
-The Cycle of Economic Crisis.
-The Crisis of Transition.

Every disciple who stands upon the threshold of world service, regardless of how small may be the part he will play in that activity, is faced with the necessity to know, to understand, and to wield the Economy of the One Life. He must grasp it as a Divine Plan in itself. He must see its relationships within the affairs of humanity, and come to understand its laws so well as to be enabled always to apply it to the furtherance of the evolutionary plan of the Soul.

What stand does the disciple take in the conflict between the two major ideologies of our time?
And more important, why does he take that stand?
What are his views regarding cartels, monopolies, cooperatives, small business, socialism, free trade, coexistence; and from what perspective are these views formulated?
Does he understand the laws which govern the circulation of the world’s resources, and in that understanding can he see the network of relationships necessary to the working out of The Plan of Love and Light for humanity?
What does right use, right activity, and right planning mean to him in relationship to economy?
What does economy itself mean to him?

These are questions, which the trainee disciple can seldom answer clearly without giving way to emotionalism. He reacts to them from the persona level rather than formulating a response from the level of Soul ideation. Most trainees and many probationers avoid formulating an answer to such questions because they do not understand the issues involved between universal principles and the selfish interests of the separated power groups in the world. Yet before the disciple can play even a small part in a world service activity, he must have resolved the problems of understanding which these questions arouse within him, so that he is clear in his vision and able to discriminate between the important and the lesser important.

 As Professor Klaus Schwab notes, “We need leaders who are emotionally intelligent, and able to model and champion co-operative working. They’ll coach, rather than command; they’ll be driven by empathy, not ego. The digital revolution needs a different, more human kind of leadership”.
