Step into the Soul Star Group and the Peaceful Presence of the SOUL, joining with Christ at the Center. We receive His blessing for the blessing of the world.
(You may choose to do a full meditation as written in Sunday's Entry into Jerusalem, or do an abbreviated version of linking with the Soul and Group Soul with the Spiritual Hierarchy and Christ at the Center.
Once RSVP registrations with participant names and locations are organized, we will have the opportunity to 'name in love' all Participating Souls thus strengthening the Christ Field anchored through us all over the world).
THE LAST SUPPER – “A HOLY COMMUNION”
“ALL ARE PRIESTS UNTO THE LORD WHO LOVE ONE ANOTHER. THIS IS THE TRUE APOSTOLIC SUCCESSION.”
Love flows as living wine – as the Waters of Life.
To “love one another” is to fulfill the Law of Love of the second aspect of Divinity.
"Bread" is shared as nourishment for all the peoples of the earth, in every land, on every table, on every lap, in every hand.
The Last Supper is a Holy Communion demonstrating Humanity's essential common Unity - the Community of Humanity.
EASTER WISDOM-TEACHINGS and CONTEMPLATIONS
"Christ ... looked ahead to the work He would have to do in the Aquarian Age, in the next sign into which the sun would enter. Prior to His "disappearance," He referred to the symbol of the Aquarian Age and to the task He would then perform. With His twelve disciples, He enacted a dramatic episode which epitomizes the work which He would later undertake when the two thousand years of the Piscean era would have passed away." Work He is now undertaking in the present era.
"He told His disciples to go into the city and that there they would meet a man, carrying a pitcher of water, that they should follow him to the upper room and there make ready the communion feast in which He and they would share. (Luke XXII.10.) This they did and the Last Supper took place. The ancient symbol for the sign Aquarius (into which our Sun is now entering) is that of the Water-carrier, the man with a pitcher of water. This passing of the Sun into the sign Aquarius is an astronomical fact. …The great spiritual achievement and evolutionary event of that age will be the communion and human relationships established among all peoples, enabling [people] everywhere to sit down together in the Presence of the Christ and share the bread and wine (symbols of nourishment)." (ROC, 80)
CONTEMPLATION: Look once again into the image above with these thoughts in mind. Imagine sitting with this group as “Friends of the Christ” in sacred communion. Allow the energy of "sacred communion" to penetrate still deeper, inside and through you ... As Love breaks forth in each person and flows through the group, every Heart opens to a new dimension of Being, of hearing, of listening, of togetherness. The Beauty of the Soul is seen visibly shining in every countenance. Heads nod, smiles of the Soul appear, all commune in gratefulness (in the great fullness of being), songs break forth ...
Allow this 'great fullness' to flow through you now.
Recall now a sacred meeting with “friends” you have had. Relive it whilst bringing the above energies into that meeting, allowing it to set the stage in continuity for future meetings and gatherings. In this way shall we live in the Spiritual energy of the Kingdom of Souls.
“The vision in [people's] minds today is that of the Aquarian Age, even if they recognize it not. The future will see right relationships, true communion, a sharing of all things (wine - the blood and the life, and bread - economic satisfaction) and goodwill …”
“Preparations for that shared feast (symbolically speaking) are on their way, and those preparations are being made by the masses of [people] themselves, as they fight and struggle and legislate for the economic sustenance of their nations, and as the theme of food occupies the attention of legislators everywhere. This sharing, beginning on the physical plane, will prove equally true of all human relations and this will be the great gift of the Aquarian Age to humanity.”
CONTEMPLATE. See 'what is' happening along these lines. Notice what is going on of this nature in the world today (thereby reinforcing the solutions now unfolding).
DURING EASTER WEEK: Let us meet in Holy Communion all over the world.
“The coming in of the Aquarian Age, Christ foresaw and reduced to pictorial form, thus preserving for us down the centuries a prophetic episode, the interpretation of which is possible of demonstration only in our time and age.”
“Astronomically, we are not yet functioning fully within the influence of Aquarius; we are only just emerging from the Piscean influence, and the full impact of the energies which Aquarius will set loose has not yet been felt. Nevertheless, each year carries us closer to the centre of power, the major effect of which will be to induce recognition of man's essential unity, of the processes of sharing and of cooperation and of the emergence of that new world religion whose keynote will be universality and initiation.”
CONTEMPLATION: “If the word "initiation" signifies the processes of "entering into," then it is indeed true today that humanity is undergoing a true initiation as it enters into the new age of Aquarius; it will then be subjected to those energies and forces which will break down the barriers of separation, and which will blend and fuse the consciousness of all [people] into that unity which is distinctive of the Christ consciousness."
Today, we are further inside the energies of Aquarius (every decade bringing us closer); the world has moved fast forward and global consciousness is a greater fact today. Let us recognize the breakdowns occurring today, many of them painful, as potential dissolutions to separation - within ourselves, between people, groups and nations. As these breakdowns are occurring, let us simultaneously hold in mind man's essential unity that is distinctive of the Christ consciousness, and building towards what will inevitably follow. Let us choose to be aligned with and act from what is coming rather than from what is breaking down and dying. What do you see, what occurs to you with these breakdowns, break-throughs and risings?
We close our contemplation with two joyous thoughts and an active creative visualization:
◊ The joyous thought of the whole human family enjoying "common union" and the fruits thereof.
◊ The joyous thought of Humanity in communion with the Kingdom of Souls (the Spiritual Hierarchy) as “Friends of the Christ" lifting "earth into heaven", bringing Heaven to Earth.
CREATIVE VISUALIZATION: Whilst seeing the group(s) to which we belong as centers of love and light irradiating the world… bringing the relief of “bread and wine” … bringing light to dark places ... healing ... and life-giving love initiated from the high planes of the Soul … we intone:
'At the Center of all Love We stand;
From that Center, We the Soul will outward move;
From that Center, We the serving Group will work.
May the Love of the divine Self be shed abroad
In our Hearts, through our Groups and throughout the World.'
