ESOTERIC ADVENT – EASTER 2018
entering the Soul Field of the christ
“… In the West, what the Great Ones seek to break is not the form of Christianity but the grip of the Churches on the minds of the masses. The old forms of thought and of interpretation are now too restricted and too tightening in their hold upon the imprisoned and struggling life. That life must break forth. It cannot be confined by the ancient restrictions. Yet at this time there does not exist the need for an utterly new venture or for an entirely new presentation of truth. Nature and evolution move with gentle gradations and not with breaks and uncorrelated manifestations in the world of forms. In all progressing developments, the old outlines can be seen—enlarged, purified and more beautiful, yet recognizable as the old form on a higher turn of the spiral.”
“…What is required is the re-vivification of the old forms, and their infusion with fresh life; the old organizations must be awakened to the hour of opportunity and must change from static organizations to living organisms. The old rituals must be revived and brought up to date (in the esoteric sense of the word) and the religious [spiritual] students of the world must be graduated into a higher school, given the esoteric interpretations, and taught that, after all, the truth has been present all the time, but hidden and misinterpreted.”
“One event is already in process of manifesting. The Christ and His disciples, the Masters of Wisdom and the Great Companions, are approaching nearer to the physical plane. The work of mental preparation for that event, and the construction of the thought-form of the advent or second Coming, has now been completed. There remains the precipitation of that event, its appearance on astral levels and its materialization on the physical plane. I would ask all of you who read these words about the second Coming, to reserve opinion as to the exact nature of that event.”
(EXTERNALIZATION OF THE HIERARCHY (EOH), 502)
PALM SUNDAY - ENTRY INTO JERUSALEM
ADVENT OF THE LIVING CHRIST
"No man has ever been saved by theology but only by the living Christ
and through the awakened consciousness of the Christ within each human heart”.
Hide not the secret of your Heart, O Son of God.
Broadcast widely the Love of Thy Soul as a Light unto the World.
Through Light shall ye see Light,
Through Love shall ye Know Love,
Through Life shall ye truly Live,
Offer now Thy Love, Thy Light and Thy Life, O Pilgrim on the Way,
to a thirsting humanity who would drink deep of the waters of Life.
Bring forth the cultures of the Soul –
That Harmony and Peace can prevail upon the planes of Earth.
Thus is the new Temple of Humanity built.
Thus shall we Know a new Earth.
Thus will the Sons of Men who know not they are Sons of God
Turn their faces to the brightness of a new Day
And come to Know the Self as One
With gifts of Freedom, pure.
Then will the veils of the earth be lifted,
Revealing luminous Beauty,
and Companionship with the Great Ones.
(Esoteric Advent / HBH)

ENTERING THE SOUL FIELD OF THE LIVING CHRIST
◊ Let us enter the Peaceful Presence of the Soul. OM ◊ During this time of Aries energy - the Light of Life Itself, we merge with the Life of the Soul (the Fire of the Soul), the True Soul (of the Triune Self) that is a Divine Son of God. OM

◊ Sounding the sacred Word, OM, on an out-breath we dissolve and release atoms of lesser vibration … whilst on the in-breaths we draw in atoms of higher vibration. ◊ In the silent Sounding of the Sacred Word, OM, sense the in-flowing new Life …. enlivening your Soul field and all here present.
◊ Pause to affirm:
In the altar of the heart is a living flame,
A radiant fire, Sun.
The Light of Love, the Love of Life –
“The Unconquerable nature of Goodness,
the Inevitable triumph of Good”.

In Truth and In Fact.

Entry Into Jerusalem
♫ Music – Sangreal
“In all progressing developments, the old outlines can be seen—enlarged, purified and more beautiful, yet recognizable as the old form on a higher turn of the spiral.”
“The Festival of Easter is a festival of the Living. "Fixed on life, not death, Good Friday will no longer be a factor in the life of the churches. ... Easter will be the great Western festival.” (POH, 163)
The risen, living Christ is Head of the spiritual Hierarchy, the Kingdom of God where the Love of God is known.
The spiritual Hierarchy Who guides and directs the Soul of Humanity will be universally recognized and Man's relation to it will be emphasized and the full nature of God's love registered.
Palm Sunday in the Christian teachings was presaged by the waving of palms two thousand years ago. With His entry, those who had eyes to “see”, hearts openned, recognized the Christ as a living emissary, a Son of God, for the coming New Age.
And now a new interpretation is needed today to stage the next evolution for entering the New Jerusalem.
Through the Ageless Wisdom teachings we are informed that Christ is still with us. Nor has he ever left. It was the body of Jesus through whom Christ worked that died the tragic death upon the cross, and not the Christ whose body is Immortal. Christ has remained with us all through the Piscean Age (of the last 2000 years) and will continue to “Be With Us” during the next 2500 year cycle of the Aquarian Age. Pouring His love and light and higher Will through the hearts and minds of Humanity for the building of a new civilization, a new heaven on earth, we must come to know Him as He is today.
With Easter occurring in the month of Aries, the coming forth of new life must be esoterically understood: “I come forth and from the plane of Mind I rule”. This Light of Life bursts forth with resurgence in every new cycle and with every turn of the zodiacal wheel. The outlines of a New Jerusalem, a new City of God, can be felt and seen, assuring us a new Jerusalem based upon the Rule of the Christ shall be known through the Soul Cultures of the world.
Let us now Contemplate and Presence the evolutionary truths that will move us forward with the Christ in His symbolic Entrance into the City of God.
CONTEMPLATIONS ON THE NEW JERUSALEM
He "steadfastly set His face to go" to that city. He now had a new objective. The place of complete "peace", the "Center where the Will of God is known" [Shambhala]. … “Christ had oriented Himself to that Divine Center which has, in the ancient Scriptures, been called the "place of serene determination and of poised, quiescent will."
◊ Let us CONTEMPLATE the "place of serene determination and of poised, quiescent will." Presence this Field within you now. OM
He has "set His face to go up to Jerusalem" (Luke IX. 51); He will again appear and guide mankind into a civilization and a state of consciousness in which right human relations and worldwide cooperation for the good of all will be the universal keynote. He will—through the New Group of World Servers and the men of goodwill—complete His association with the Will of God (His Father's business) in such a manner that the eternal will-to-good will be translated by humanity into goodwill and right relations. Then His task will be done; He will be free again to leave us, this time not to return, but to leave the world of men in the hands of that great spiritual Server Who will be the new Head of the Hierarchy, the Church Invisible.” (Reappearance of the Christ (ROC), 609)
Let us now turn to the Christ within us. How do We enter into the Company of the Great Ones?
The golden path of halos formed by His Great Companions walking in His company, leave for us a luminous and trusted path to follow.
In due time we shall, and are now, joining the ranks of the golden-haloed Ones. As we fulfill the Laws of the Soul, we become Christed Ones.
We will come to know Him truly – as He knows us. In our awakened and developed Christ nature, we “walk with Him”. It is through resonance and similarity of vibration that we can walk with Him.
He points for us the Way, as the Eldest of our Earth Humanity, to make our lives a living reality of what He is today.
Can we, will we recognize the haloes of those who are with Him now?
Today, many more have joined the ranks of the Kingdom of God. “We are the ones” – the advancing Disciples of the Christ, who together with the Spiritual Hierarchy – are moving with Him into the Holy City.
Whomsoever has the Fire of Love aflame in the heart; whomsoever “saves” through compassion and its offspring, kindness; whomsoever serves through Soul-aligned action with acts of good-will for the benefit of all (the human race as a whole and “whole earth”) is actively building the new Temple of Humanity. Whomsoever does these things, in His name, is on the golden Christ path that leads to the Royal Road of Shambhala.
"His statement to His disciples: "I must go up to Jerusalem," after which we read that He "steadfastly set His face to go" to that city. This was the intimation to them that He now had a new objective. The only place of complete "peace" (which is the meaning of the name "Jerusalem") is the "centre where the will of God is known." T he spiritual Hierarchy of our planet (the invisible Church of Christ) is not a centre of peace but a very vortex of loving activity, the meeting place of energies coming from the centre of the divine will, and from humanity, the centre of divine intelligence. Christ had oriented Himself to that divine centre which has, in the ancient Scriptures, been called the "place of serene determination and of poised, quiescent will." This statement marked a point of crisis and of determination in the life of Christ, and proved His progress towards divine fulfillment." (ROC, 28)
LET US CONTEMPLATE the above. Let us "intuit" how the Christ and the spiritual Hierarchy (the Kingdom of Souls and Church Invisible) is even now leading humanity to a New Jerusalem. Are we moving toward Them, are we among Them?
By embodying and expressing the Truths He taught, the greatest of these the full demonstration of Love to all Beings, a New Jerusalem will be in our purview.
Is it possible that our "cities" can become communities, towns and Cities of Light and Love and Peace fit for a new world? What must change for this possibility to come closer to reality? Let us look for the signs and demonstrations. Sense the Advent.
“…The New Jerusalem is a fact in the Mind of the Creator of this planetary Life. It signifies the establishment on Earth of a viable culture of peace—one that will arise from the consciousness of human beings armed with the resources to light the lamp of Love. Only the glow of this lamp, sustained through the dark passage to the rebirth of human consciousness, can lift the veil that hides the blazing light of the new City of God.” (The New Jerusalem; the Kanchenjunga Messages)
The above Contemplations are meant to be pondered over a period of time, over and again. Reflection leads to Contemplation, releasing the energy of the Heart on the wings of the Soul from the abode of an ever-abiding Presence. Deeper, fuller and truer interpretations shall arise as we contemplate in the Intuition of the Heart - Mind - Soul.
Every sentence a veritable treasure trove of meaning and significance. The energy of the truths behind Christ's episodes are linked with the love and higher knowledge of the Soul. They shall be revealed by the "raincloud of knowable things" ... moving through us, releasing their luminous treasures throughout our heart and mind, and into the energy field of the Soul Star Group. As they become living truths for us and in us, we shall disseminate these truths through the heart-mind of humanity by a living osmosis, and then again as luminous new teachings for the coming new age.
We have entered the energy field of the New Jerusalem with the Christ. We have begun, we are with Him and the Church Invisible in the Advent.
We continue our Easter Vigil in service of the Christ and the Heart of Humanity.
Sound (meditatively intone) The Great Invocation – a World Prayer
Please Note: Continue on Monday deepening your Entry into Jerusalem.
For Monday, some new content will be provided signifying the New Jerusalem in the Holy Temple of the human being which can be subtly worked with throughout the remaining week whilst we as a group move with the Christ through the major Episodes.
For additional reflections and information on the New Jerusalem, see compilation titled: "The New Jerusalem - Supplemental Reading". Come back to it later in the week as additions are made.
