Children of the Earth - May 2013


Great Invocation


From "I" to "We" to "One"


From the point of Light
within the mind of Oneness,
Let Light stream forth into our minds;
Let Light descend on Earth.


From the point of Love
within the heart of Oneness,
Let Love stream forth into our hearts;
May Love increase on Earth.

From the center where
the will of Oneness is known,
let purpose guide our wills;
The purpose which the Holy Ones know and serve.

From the center
which we call humanity,
let the Plan of Love and Light work out,
and may it seal the door where darkness dwells.

Let Light, Love, and Unity heal our world.
Let Light, Love, and Unity awaken humanity.
Let Light, Love, and Unity cultivate peace and harmony on Earth.


(Adapted from "The Great Invocation" given to Alice Bailey via Master D.K. in 1945)

An Open Letter to the Young People of the World


We are the music makers, 

And we are the dreamers of dreams, 
Wandering by lone seabreakers, 
And sitting by desolate streams; 
World-losers and world-forsakers, 
On whom the pale moon gleams: 
Yet we are the movers and shakers 
Of the world forever, it seems... 
We, in the ages lying In the buried past of the earth, 
Built Ninevah with our sighing, 
And Babel itself in our mirth; 
And o'erthrew them with prophesying 
To the old of the new world's worth; 
For each age is a dream that is dying, 
Or one that is coming to birth. 
(Arthur O'Shaughnessy) 


You, the young people of the world, are the movers and shakers, the music makers....

Shivaratri Festival Celebration

children at festival

We have recently celebrated a festival called Maha Shivaratri. This festival is one of the religious festivals in the Hindu religion.  This festival is mainly to worship Lord Shiva. All the Hindu people take part to celebrate the festival.






This is a critical time in our world. Our youth require our support more than ever before to inspire them in taking action towards the future that they are destined to create. Your contribution will assist us to continue our work with youth leaders all over the world to inspire and equip them to live meaningful lives by assisting to become social change agent and spiritual activists.


We recently added the ability for you to sign up to make a recurring donation to COE. Pledge your monthly support!

The Oneness Project


"Every generation must be free to remake the world anew" (Thomas Paine).


We can do this individually, but working together, we can become "The Power of Oneness," transcending the limits of time as we propel positive changes into our own lives and into the lives of all of creation on Earth. YOU are needed to remake the world anew.


COE is convening 12 master level youth Spirit-Ambassadors: COE alumni who have known each other throughout many years. They have agreed to unite daily in meditation with COE elders. All regions of the world are represented including Ghana, Israel, Nepal, Pakistan, South Africa, United Kingdom, Canada, United States, Romania, Nigeria, Australia, Korea and Japan.


Each of the participants has practiced diverse types of meditation, but this will be a specific process adapted by and for them. They will journal their experiences and shall be interviewed regularly. Their reflections will be posted on the COEWORLD website and on social media to promote the movement and inspire others to join. 


As more youth join the project, the 12 lead youth will become mentors to new members, causing a ripple effect in youth consciousness to flow. COEʼs role is to synthesize this creative energy and to allow the love, light and unity of the youth movement to heal the Earth, awaken humanity and to build sustainable world peace through Oneness.

Family Line Foundation Liberia




After 14 years of war in Liberia, our children have suffered greatly. Some of them of them have become orphans and children of single mothers while others have parents that are handicapped as a result of the war. We want to help these kids reach their full potential. We are working with single mothers, giving them seeds so they can start back yard gardens to provide for their family and allow them some independence.
