Thursday Meditation: Reflective Thursday Meditation for the Reappearance of the Christ
The Sixth LIGHT and Angel of Virgo
6. Virgo - The blended dual Light. Two lights are seen: bright and strong, the light of form; one faint and dim, the light of God. This light is distinguished by a waxing of one and the waning of the other. It differs from the light in Gemini. [EA, 329]
Word of the Soul: “I Am the Mother and the Child; I God - I Matter, Am”.
The keynote embodying the truth of the mission of Virgo most is "Christ in you, the hope of glory". [EA, 251/2]
VIRGO, THE VIRGIN – “This sign is one of the most significant in the zodiac. Its symbology concerns the whole goal of the evolutionary process which is to shield, nurture and finally reveal the hidden spiritual reality. This every form veils, but the human form is equipped and fitted to manifest it in a manner different to any other expression of divinity and so make tangible and objective that for which the whole creative process was intended”.
Virgo—is the nurturing force of substance itself, subject to the nine cyclic changes of the cosmic gestation period; it fosters and protects the embryonic Christ life, preparing for manifestation of a divine incarnation. (Esoteric Astrology/345)
“Mary [is] the Virgin, in the symbolism of the ancient wisdom, for virgin matter, for the substance which nurtures and nourishes and hides within itself the Christ child, the Christ consciousness. In the last analysis, it is through form and matter that God stands revealed. That is the story of the divine incarnation. Matter, overshadowed by the Holy Ghost [Spirit], the third Person of the Trinity, brings to the birth the second Aspect of the Trinity [Soul or Love], in the Person of Christ—cosmic, mythical and individual. (From Bethlehem to Cavalry (FBTC), 66/7)
“Gemini and Virgo are closely related but Gemini presents the pairs of opposites—soul and body—as two separate entities whereas in Virgo, they are blended and of great and supreme importance to each other; the mother protects the germ of the Christ life; matter guards, cherishes and nurtures the hidden soul. The keynote embodying the truth of the mission of Virgo most is "Christ in you, the hope of glory". [EA, 251/2] ... eventually becoming and revealing the Cosmic “Christ in you – the Glory of the One”.
Contemplate: “O Son, spiritual wisdom lies in the womb of silence and the seed is Truth and the Supreme Good.” (The Way of Hermes - A New Translation by Clement Salaman)
“Virgo symbolizes depths, darkness, quiet and warmth; it is the valley of deep experience wherein secrets are discovered and eventually “brought to light”; it is the place of slow, gentle and yet powerful crises and periodic developments which take place in the dark and yet which lead to light. It is the “blinded stage”…which ever precedes the gift of light. Virgo stands for the “womb of time” wherein God’s plan (the mystery and the secret of the ages) is slowly matured and—with pain and discomfort and through struggle and conflict—brought into manifestation at the end of the appointed time. (EA, 254, 259/60)
"VIRGO is the constellation which is symbolic of the second stage of the relation between the pair of opposites [personality and soul, soul and monad, monad and the greater Life within the Sun ... on and on]. Here we have, as you know, the Mother of the Christ Child and the fostering process of interchange which brings about life, love and their united manifestation in one form. This second ray is, therefore, closely related to Virgo and its lowest aspect is mother love with its instinctual care of that which must be nourished and guarded. Its highest aspect is the incarnated, manifested Christ. Then instinct is transmuted into wisdom and with that the will-to-manifest and bring into the light of day the hitherto Hidden Christ. This sign and this second ray Will have a mysterious relation to Time, to process and to the sustaining life of the Mother (matter) which, throughout the gestation period, nourishes and cares for the rapidly developing Christ Child. The Moon has also a peculiar function which can only be expressed in the idea of death—the death of the relationships between the Mother and the Child because the moment comes when the Christ Child will emerge from the womb of time and of matter and stand free in the light. This will have been due, necessarily, to many inherent factors but primarily to the sustaining will [second and first rays] of the Mother, plus the dynamic will [first ray] of the Christ Child. Here again is an aspect of the curious and mysterious relation between the first and the second rays." (Esoteric Astrology, 627)

Contemplate this Idea: "...I will emphasize the fact of the livingness of the Sources from which all the energies and forces which play upon our planet flow and emanate; I will endeavour, above all else, to demonstrate to you that all-pervading unity and that underlying synthesis which is the basis of all religions and of all the many transmitted forces.." (Esoteric Astrology, 7)
The Instinct to Synthesis. A synthesis of soul with matter and a synthesis of soul with spirit complete the unification and the destined at-one-ment which underlies our deepest Soul desire for union with God which is the motivating desire for all the unions the personality yearns for. "In the synthesis of Deity [God], there is a tendency to blend and fuse, and is far more inclusive and universal than any possible expression in the human kingdom, which is, after all, but a small part of the greater whole. Man is not all that is possible, nor the consummation of God's thought. The sweep of this instinct to synthesis underlies all universes, constellations, solar systems, planets, and kingdoms in nature, as well as the activity aspect and achievement of man, the individual. This instinct is the governing principle of consciousness itself, and consciousness is the psyche or soul, producing psychical [soul] life; it is awareness—sub-human, human and divine.
In connection with man, we have the following psychological expressions postulated:
1. Instinct, lying below the level of consciousness, but protecting and governing most of the habits and life of the organism. Much of the emotional life is thus governed. Instinct controls, via the solar plexus and the lower centres.
2. Intellect, which is intelligent self-consciousness, guiding and directing the activity of the integrated personality, via the mind and brain, and working through the throat and ajna centres.
3. Intuition. This is predominantly concerned with group consciousness and will eventually control all our relations with each other, as we function in group units. It works through the heart and the heart centre, and is that higher instinct which enables a man to recognise and submit to his soul and to its control and life impression.
4. Illumination. This is a word which should really be applied to the designation of the super-human consciousness. This divine instinct enables a man to recognize the whole of which he is a part. It functions via a man's soul, utilising the head centre, and eventually flooding with light or energy all the centres, thus linking a man in consciousness with all the corresponding parts of the divine Whole.
Thus the trend to synthesis is an instinct inherent in the entire universe, and man is today only awakening to its immediacy and potency.
Being an attribute of Deity, and being a divine instinct and, therefore, part of the subconscious life of God Himself, it will be obvious that, given the original premise that there is a God, transcendent and immanent, we have, therefore, no cause for real fear or foreboding. God's instincts are stronger and more vital and pure than are those of humanity, and must eventually triumph, coming forth into full flower and expression. All the lower instincts with which man battles are but the distortions (in time and space) of reality, and hence the value of the esoteric teaching that by pondering upon the good, the beautiful and the true, we transmute our lower instincts into higher divine qualities. The attractive power of God's instinctual nature, with its capacity to synthesize, to attract and to blend, cooperates with the unrealized potencies of man's own nature, and makes his eventual at-one-ment with God, in life and purpose, an inevitable, irresistible occurrence." (Esoteric Psychology - II, 231/3) ◊ Contemplate
◊ ◊ ◊
“In all the great world religions, the Virgin Mother appears.” “The names the Virgin is called are familiar to all of us, and tell us much…concerning the form nature of which the Virgin is the symbol.” An “allegory teaching the emergence of the spiritual man from the control of matter” is found in…Eve, Isis, and Mary. These three “are of … significant importance where our civilization is concerned for they embody in themselves the symbology of the entire form nature” which we call the personality when integrated and functioning as a whole person.” ◊ Contemplate
The personality is…“the developed and qualified expression of the third aspect of divinity, that of God the Holy Spirit, the active, intelligent and nurturing principle of the universe”. It is the through the "glorified personality" that the mature Christ is revealed and 'born'. ◊ Contemplate
In Leo that self-conscious entity unfolds and “in Virgo becomes the mother of the Christ child.” “Eve is the symbol of the mental nature, and of the mind of man attracted by the lure of knowledge to be gained through the experience of incarnation. Eve, therefore, took the apple of knowledge from the serpent of matter and started the long human undertaking of experiment, experience and expression which was initiated—from the mental angle—in our Aryan (mind) times. Isis stands for this same expression down on the emotional or astral plane. Eve has no child in her arms; the germ of the Christ life is as yet too small to make its presence felt; the involutionary process is yet too close; but in Isis the midway point is reached; the quickening of that which is desired (the Desire of all nations, as it is called in the Bible” is the Desire for the “coming One” Who will unite all nations into one human family). “Mary carries the process down to the plane or place of incarnation, the physical plane, and there gives birth to the Christ child. In these three Virgins and these three Mothers of the Christ, you have the history of the formation and the function of the three aspects of the personality through which the Christ must find expression.” Virgo is the “synthesis of these three feminine aspects—Eve, Isis and Mary. She is the Virgin Mother, providing all that is needed for the mental, emotional and physical expression of the hidden but ever present divinity.”
“Upon the wheel of the Disciple, the voice emerges from the Virgin Herself and she says: "I am the mother and the child. I, God, I, matter am." … Ponder upon the beauty of this synthesis and teaching, and know that you yourself have said the first word as the soul, descending into the womb of time and space in a far and distant past. The time has now come when you can, if you so choose, proclaim your identity with both divine aspects—matter and Spirit, the mother and the Christ.” [EA, 284/5] There are two aspects to matter - physical and the living substance behind it. Physical matter must be redeemed - or raised to vibrate purely, blending with divine living substance. The AtmaGita describes the story of What we are - never losing our Divine Identity as we descended into matter aeons ago and are re-ascending to our Divine Origins, the Father/Mother's bosom (see AtmaGita below). In a sense, we are fallen angels. We intentionally and willingly 'fell' into the depths of matter in order to redeem matter on our ascending journey Home - a great act of Love.

THROUGH THE PORTAL OF VIRGO
DIAMOND SOUL PRACTICES
Virgo’s energy – it’s quality, powers and gifts are powerfully present during this month. You may want to visualize the glyph of Virgo to pass through the symbol into the Reality, or you may just as effectively turn your heart and mind to Virgo to attune to the vast Presence beaming in on us now through the Sun, and through the planetary transmitters. As we access these energies and consciously make them a part of us, they become our own Soul Powers and Gifts. This is the purpose of the Diamond Soul Practices. As we come to know the energy and apply it, we make it our own, and can 'use it at will' in all the ways we live and serve. Practices such as these pave the way for the inner Christ to appear – thus is a Master of Love-Wisdom made and 'born' in time.
The Heart-Mind of Christ in you confers twelve new powers and facets of the One Self – the Soul-Self, the True Soul. Throughout this period of Virgo, we meet and cooperate with the Angel of Virgo who will be stimulating the sixth of twelve Christed powers – each a facet in the Glory Body of the One Self.
ATTUNEMENT FOR CONTEMPLATION ◊ Come into conscious alignment with the Soul, the Christ in you. ◊ Send forth a ray of lighted love to connect with the Soul Star group as a whole (or group with which you are most affiliated). With this group, connect with "the great potency of the inner groups” (the Ashrams of the Christ) ◊ Light a candle, a living flame of Light in your mind, to attune with the Angel of Virgo who stimulates the 6th great petal of light in the center-most 'heart in the head'. In this light, we will work with one or more of the following Diamond Soul Practices to unfold the latent power of this petal. As we work in Contemplation we come to see, to know, to understand what is, and comprehend the greater whole. "The attractive power of God's instinctual nature, with its capacity to synthesize, to attract and to blend, cooperates with the unrealized potencies of man's own nature, and makes his eventual at-one-ment with God, in life and purpose, an inevitable, irresistible occurrence." EP -II, 233)
◊ The Light of Virgo - the Blended Dual Light: “I Am the Mother and the Child; I God - I Matter, Am”. I Am "Christ in you, the hope of glory." ◊ Impress these Keynotes of the sixth petal into your memory … allow the Angel cooperating with you to fan the Reality that stands behind the words into a felt awareness, … and eventually into a living expression through you. Open yourself to intuitive impression after linking with the Angel of the Sixth Petal. ◊ Remember to reinforce these Truths throughout this month. Wake up with them in the morning, go to bed with them at night, be with them day and night. Link all the Diamond Soul practices with these Truths making them part of the Word of the Soul, as mantric Words of Power, that when sounded forth will create a new higher inner vibration. Sound forth the sacred OM sealing in the new vibration. ◊ Notice what you notice throughout the month; notice what new perceptions arise in your awareness. Notice what is being revealed through you. Notice what secret(s) is being made known.
In "the original premise that there is a God, transcendent and immanent, we have, therefore, no cause for real fear or foreboding. God's instincts are stronger and more vital and pure than are those of humanity, and must eventually triumph, coming forth into full flower and expression. All the lower instincts with which man battles are but the distortions (in time and space) of reality, and hence the value of the occult [scientific] teaching that by pondering upon the good, the beautiful and the true, we transmute our lower instincts into higher divine qualities. The attractive power of God's instinctual nature, with its capacity to synthesize, to attract and to blend, cooperates with the unrealized potencies of man's own nature, and makes his eventual at-one-ment with God, in life and purpose, an inevitable, irresistible occurrence." (Esoteric Psychology - II, 231/3)
In this profoundly rich paragraph three Diamond Soul practices emerge.
◊ It is greatly comforting and reassuring to hear a Master of Love-Wisdom confirm "there is a God, transcendent and immanent" and that because of God's Immanence - meaning God's Presence is living in us, there is "no cause for real fear or foreboding" because God's instincts living inside of us, are so much stronger and more vital and purer than our own temporary distortions. ◊ Let us develop "God Immanent" into our life experience and awareness as a felt Presence, often. When a time of real need arises, there will be an established relationship and connection with "Some-One Real". ◊ Therefore, whenever a fear or foreboding or anxiety arises in the emotional body or in the mind, first re-member God's powerful Immanence; only then surrender what is troubling you to God within - "Christ in you, the hope of glory". Fears are vibrationally swept away in a Holy Instant.
◊ An exercise of the Heart-Mind:
◊ "All the lower instincts with which man battles are but (temporary) distortions (in time and space) of Reality", and hence the great value of reflecting upon the "good, the beautiful and the true" as a method of transmuting our lower instincts into "higher divine qualities" is given us. This is a profoundly simple and effective means, as well as a hint, in how to move forward on the Path with ease - until we become the Path Itself, until we have fully embodied God's higher divine qualities. ◊ Aligned with and as the Soul, raise your awareness to be in resonance and en rapport with the "good, the true and the beautiful", simultaneously remembering what you are doing and why you are doing it.
As a starting point, you may want to select sacred text, sacred image(s) and/or music upon which to contemplate "the good, the beautiful and the true." From the book Heart, Vs. 178:
"…A wondrous Truth is in Beauty. Cosmos affirms evolution by this formula. Cosmos directs the world to the mastery of beauty. Yes, verily, the Mother of the World possesses the Magnet of Beauty."
◊ 'The attractive power of God's 'instincts' and "capacity to synthesize, to attract and to blend cooperates" with mans own nature of what are as yet unrealized potencies. These 'inner potencies' are being stimulated, and are inevitably and irresistibly bringing us into full "at-one-ment with God, in life and purpose". ◊ Aligned with and as the Soul, ponder on this profound inner mechanism that has been pre-wired into us ... How then would we ever again choose not to have Faith in our divine destiny, or lose hope, or enter into doubt about what is really ever and always present - 'closer than hands and feet'. Be In-Spired. Say to your self, God is cooperating with my nature ... God is attracting me, blending with me, synthesizing me into Himself/Herself. ◊ Affirm this Diamond Soul Practice by sounding forth the sacred Om, sealing in the holy vibration, and these "Truths" with the Word of the Soul (mentally link this practice for the day with the Word of the Soul).
◊ “God the Holy Spirit (the third aspect of divinity) is the active, intelligent and nurturing principle of the universe.” Our personality as a whole (comprised of three vehicles or bodies - mental, emotional and etheric/physical) when developed and qualified with universal energies, patterns and virtues, becomes an expression of God the Holy Spirit. We ourselves are “cells” within the body of God in a living holographic universe. As we fulfill our innate potential, we fulfill the Will of God in the great system of this universe that is ‘wired’ for synthesis. Reflect (meditate) with the Soul - as the Soul, identifying your personality as a vehicle of expression for God the Holy Spirit – the active, intelligent and nurturing principle of the universe. ◊ Notice what moves in and through you, now and throughout these days, as these higher patterns and 'ideas' pour through your centers - and into your awareness. ◊ Can there be more? ◊ Look for "synthesized awareness".
◊ The Virgin Mother Herself, in concert with the Angel of the Sixth Petal, shields, nurtures and finally reveals the hidden but ever-present glory living within you. ◊ With this knowledge, reflect upon what ways you are shielding (protecting and guarding) the inner spiritual reality from the un-redeemed aspects of your lower nature and that of the world. ◊ Reflect upon what ways you are nurturing (cultivating, tending, giving to, and cherishing) the growing Christ within. ◊ Reflect upon what ways you are revealing (living by and daring to express) the "hidden spiritual Reality" of Divinity unfolding within you. ◊ These are deep introspective questions that deserve time to consider (use the rest of this months to do so).
◊ “Virgo symbolizes depths, darkness, quiet and warmth; it is the valley of deep experience wherein secrets are discovered and eventually “brought to light”. ◊ What is coming forth "to light" from the valley of your deep experience(s)? ◊ As Consciousness unfolds ... as awareness expands, it brings forth inner Secrets. Hold to the light that brings them forth. ◊ Pause, Reflect, Ask - what Secret is now made known? Be awake in that Awareness.
◊ Guided by these self-reflections, we are consciously linking with the Virgin Mother Whose nature is the "nurturing force of Substance Itself" and Whose energy is playing upon us, conditioning us, and nurturing us. ◊ Attune with the nurturing force inside yourself that is growing and maturing you into a full Soul 'incarnate'. By, with and through the universal influence of the Mother Principle in Virgo, come to the realization that you are the Mother of Christ. You are giving birth to your Soul, and finally to your Soul-Self.
GROUP AND WORLD SERVICE DIAMOND SOUL PRACTICES AND REFLECTIONS
◊ What/Who will you shield this day ... (month, year) ... ? To protect the soul growth and soul expression - in you or another soul, of a relationship, a project, a group organism, a soul-inspired organization, a community, of a nation, a kingdom, a land, the earth, of a Teaching, a Purpose, ....
◊ What/Who will you nurture today ... (this month, this year) ... ?
◊ What must you not nurture ... what will you allow to die ... so that more life, more wholeness, the right future, can come forth?
◊ What/Who is being revealed ... (this month, this year, in this life-time) ... ?
These are big questions that belong to the Mother(ing) Principle of the Cosmos, and yet we must learn to apply them daily in the particulars of our lives. Guided by these self-reflections, we are again consciously linking with the Virgin Mother as we serve others through and with Her influence. Allow these questions to wash over and through us as each day begins. Let them be in the background of our consciousness throughout the day. Bring them to the foreground of awareness when needed. This is a training ... until we 'naturally' live in this way - until we have embodied: 'Being the Mother Principle' - for all, in all.
Instilling the Virgin Mother's gifts as our own, we participate in the great esoteric law "As above, so Below".
As we do, 'we shall be used'. Notice when this happens and occurs - articulate it in your own words to make it more real in the presence of your conscious awareness.
SPACE IS AN ENTITY
"The Ancient Wisdom teaches that "space is an entity". It is with the life of this entity and with the forces and energies, the impulses and the rhythms, the cycles and the times and seasons that esoteric astrology deals." (Esoteric Astrology, 7/8)
"The entire "vault of heaven" is the phenomenal appearance of that entity."
◊ Pause to contemplate.
NEAR AND FUTURE MANIFESTATIONS
SEEDING THE FUTURE PRESENT DIAMOND SOUL GROUP PRACTICES
◊ True Reality is not linear, we live in a holographic universe: "what is known to the whole is known to the part and what is known to the part is known to the whole". What we create through the 'creative imagination' functions holographically through the laws of the "boundless immutable principle" of the universe.
Breaking free of the finite world, with the soul-infused mind we can go 'anywhere'. Identified as the Soul Star group, let us envision entering a Future where Christed Ones can be seen walking the planes of the earth in great and resplendent numbers, working in every department of 'future human living' ... Entering this envisioned future, some aspect of that future can/will flow back into the present ... through the Consciousness of the Soul Star Group, into our minds-hearts-bodies, and into the world through us. We bring forth the future-present. The past touched by the future changes the present in one blended contiguous (adjoining) whole. We begin with the 'Holy Imagination' where we envision a Humanity already 'created whole'. We come en rapport with the Holy Spirit with our Holy Minds (whole Heart-Mind) ... thus entering the Holy Instant … where magical processes are at play … where healing ancient pasts through a Love bigger than the transgressions is changed in a Holy Instant: with full trust, as we bring the past/present to the Holy Spirit - in a blending synthesis, a new past-present-future unfolds in a Holy Instant. Every future-present is what the Heart has longed for, seen and known. ◊ Let us reflect upon the Holy Instant.
◊ We Align, Attune, Ask, Allow, Accept, Affirm.
IN MEDITATION DEEP, let us begin our alignment by entering the field of the group Soul ... Meditatively merge the Soul Star group with the radiant field of the Christ at its Center.
With a deep in-breath/out-breath, let us begin our alignment and attunement by entering the field of the Holy Mother (the Holy Virgin) standing between heaven and earth, blessing with Her Presence. ... Align, enter into and merge with the group Soul, meditatively enter the Soul Star group and the radiant splendor of the field of the Christ at its Center - taking a deep breath. ... Sense the group vibration reaching a high point of vibration. ... Focus your mind in the Ajna Center ... then visualize a Group Ajna Center. Think now upon the world - an event, a situation, an issue, and/or a mis-creation born of illusion and devoid of healing wholeness: Formulate this into a simple statement such as "climate change", the Syrian civil war, refugee crisis, hate speech in politics and human discourse, .... Place it into the group Ajna Center and Ask the Holy Mother for Her intercession to shield/guard/protect, nurture, and reveal a new 'unfolding' - a healing way forward ....sensing, seeing into, knowing the existence of a 'resplendent Future'. With the Holy Mother, brightened by our Faith-full participation, the transforming fires of Love move with the Fires of the Heart - in a Holy Instant we make gains what to finite minds is relegated to the slow march of time. … Allow in time and space what ‘is done’ on the ‘inner’. We, within humanity whole, are links in a great chain of Being, to a finite present... Accepting to anchor what has been Done, we ‘precipitate a new present’. ◊ Affirm, saying "With and through minds made whole, seeing all as One, ancient wounds born of human mis-creations are healing - separations deep, brought to the Truth of Wholeness." ◊ We Align, We Attune, We Ask, We Allow, We Accept, We Affirm. So it is done. Let It Be Done.
◊ The Virgin Mother in her wholeness is a synthesis of the three Feminine aspects (noted above). She will one day be the manifested archetype of perfection, making sacred our Earth. All of Humanity will be a “Glorified Personality” – a Christed Humanity walking the earth, Christing the Earth–through sanctified living. While this is a long time in the future, we are Humanity’s forerunners. As we shield, nurture, and reveal this Divinity now within ourselves and in the world wherever we see a needed response, we are creating that future now. Our individual inner work, and group work around the world is setting a field that is nurturing and amplifying near and future manifestations – a microcosm of “the Glory of the One”. ◊ As we "live" these teachings, we are intentionally demonstrating the living patterns writ in the heavens. Reflect.
◊ Assume that in every spiritually dedicated group of which you are a part, the Christ Life is present to some degree. Throughout this month, notice how your group(s) are shielded, nurtured and in process of revealing the growing Life within.
◊ With that said, touch, and be touched by the powers (potencies) inherent in this Holy Petal. Direct this energy into the Soul Star Group (and groups with which you are greatly identified); be a conduit for the transmission and growth of the three aspects of the Christ (what Eve, Isis and Mary stand for) in the field of service in which you work. ◊ Contemplating on the following verses (or others like them) while 'with the Soul Star' group infuses and brings their qualities inside the Soul Star group (and/or groups) to which they are directed. As you contemplate these timeless truths, qualities and powers, hold the Group while "thinking in the Heart of the True Soul" together with the Christ and the Holy Virgin.
Verses from the works of Helena Roerich, Infinity-I and Heart:
178. …A wondrous Truth is in Beauty. Cosmos affirms evolution by this formula. Cosmos directs the world to the mastery of beauty. Yes, verily, the Mother of the World possesses the Magnet of Beauty.
196. …. When the Tara of Light will enlighten the world with revelations from the far-off worlds, then will She be affirmed as the manifestation of Beauty. When the Tara of the Heart illumines the world with love, then is She affirmed as the manifestation of Beauty. (Tara is qualified aspect of the Divine Feminine).
201. When the Tara was affirmed on Earth, three rays of the Lords reverberated. These facets of cosmic fires can be seen on the Tara by a sensitive eye. These facets are so powerfully revealed that their radiance melts all discovered obstacles. One may truly say that the Radiant Image will give new understanding.
208. The Tara of knowledge magnetizes those who aspire to knowledge. The Tara of Beauty summons those who aspire to Beauty. The Tara of Achievement summons those who strive toward Achievement. The Tara of Synthesis can gather united spirits. Thus the Blended Heart fulfills the Covenant of the Cosmic Reasons. …
239. The fire of life process is revealed as the impeller of humanity. … The impulsion of the transmuting force in the tensity of pure Fire carries with it all creative means and thereby uplifts the surrounding sphere. Thus does the tension of the fires manifest the affirmation of the new steps.
59. Evolution needs the guidance of Our Consciousness. Intensified forces are needed. Readiness and fiery action are needed. The pushing on toward extinction is already a detachment from Infinity. … The Teaching of the Blessed One is a fiery torrent. It is verily a torrent which carries all strivings into Infinity. … to humanity there is manifested a rushing Fire! The force bestowed for creation must not be dissipated.
One should comprehend the entire Cosmic Law and the Teaching of the Blessed One and of the Lords as an imperative summons to Infinity.
Agni means Fire. Vs. 241 The energy of the Agni Yogi is directed into varied channels of creativeness: as a transmuting force, as an integrating force, as a piercing force opening the path where all locks are bolted. Thus is the creativeness of the Tara affirmed.
CLOSING: Let us remain open to the Holy Virgin and Her Angels Who ‘potentize’ the Sixth Petal of the ‘Heart in the Head’ center lotus; allow the powers of the sixth petal to unfold in you, and through the group. Through Contemplation, Identification and Revelation, the sixth petal reveals the growing Identity of Spirit and matter blended, bringing forth the “Heart-Mind of Christ” in you in ever greater glory. ◊ As we consciously express the 6th petal, allowing it to work in and through us, the group and the world, we are widening the channel of connection and reception, strengthening the livingness of the New Mind in Christ. The power(s) of this facet of the Self will increase and unfold with every true expression and steady, conscious application. ◊ In gratitude, Bless and Be Blessed!

FOR FURTHER EXPANDING CONTEMPLATIONS AND YOUR DELIGHT
"Matter must become the servant of that which is being born, the Christ, and this is true whether of an individual hidden within the ordinary human; or the historical Christ concealed within the form of Jesus; or the mythic Christ, hidden in humanity down through the ages; or the Cosmic Christ hidden by the form of a solar system". FBTC, 67
An immense SUPER-CLUSTER of GALAXIES was recently discovered near the VIRGO Cluster, named LANIAKEA - Immeasurable Heaven, Spacious Heaven.
"The Earth Logos shares the life of our Solar Logos, who ensouls the whole solar system. In turn the Solar Logos shares the life of a greater Logos whose “physical body,” esoteric teachers tell us, is one corner of the Milky Way Galaxy encompassing the star Sirius, the constellations of the Great Bear and the Pleiades, our solar system, and ... other star systems. Beyond that “cosmic Logos” there must be a succession of even greater Logoi, until we come to that Being—awesome and powerful beyond imagination—who ensouls the Supercluster Laniakea." From Christianity and Esotericism.
LANIAKEA — "Immeasurable Heaven" — "Spacious Heaven" was discovered by Hawaiian astronomers during the month of Virgo in September 2013, visibly nestled against the VIRGO Cluster on one side of its heaven-ness. Esoteric Astrology has us understand that Virgo is the most ancient of the 12 Signs of our Zodiac, stemming back to our first Solar System. Gazing upon Laniakea, said to be home to over 100,000 galaxies, will take the breath away at first sight... her stunning beauty shaped in angelically feminine golden tendrils of light ... comprised of tens of thousands of galaxies, some of which are thousands of light years apart ... as if extending into infinite space. The eye is drawn to concentrated centers of light comprised of galaxies neighboring together as if to be in each other's company. Here we witness "the sweep of 'God's' instinct to synthesis underlying all universes, constellations, solar systems, planets, and kingdoms in nature..." (EP-II)
Awe-filled silence fills the mind as we come to realize, re-minded, that standing behind all of this manifested beauty is a still greater mystery - a Being, a stupendous Consciousness, informing it All. Well nigh impossible to comprehend, let us try for in the trying we stretch our limits .... reaching beyond human senses, through the gate of the intuition, we come closer..
A spiritual Master once wrote urging His disciples, to take notice and give especial attention when "Man" as Humanity makes a new "discovery". Discovery portends something "new" is being born … and when born in the consciousness of Humanity signifies a release of new energy heretofore unknown. As is often the case, “That Something” has always been there, but now is "seen" and can be experienced consciously. There is a magic in all of this. What "we see" – as quantum science has identified in the Observer effect –creates a change ‘in the world’ by virtue of our "seeing it". But there is more. That Which is "seen" is also looking back ... as Consciousness meets consciousness, a link is made, energy flows and something new is added thereunto—Us.
Thereunto Us — “For Unto Us a Child Is Born!” The Christ, coming forth through "Us"! The Christ ... on His Way.
God is energy. After all is said and done, energy is all there is. Yet, energy is ever embodied by ‘something’, by some ‘form’ in our visible universe, as well as in our invisible universe. Laniakea is such a form, as true a form as are our bodies and the subtler bodies that surround them, and as true a form as Humanity is and the larger body of which it is a part – Sanat Kumara, the Lord of the World (conveying a greater truth were we to say ‘Sanat-Kumara, the Lord/Lady – King/Queen of the World’ for S/He Is Androgynous). Ad Infinitum, subiectiva et obiectiva (For Ever and Ever, subjectively and objectively).
With the release of new energy into the consciousness of Humanity comes a responsibility for the spiritual thinkers in the world to “think in the Heart” — to reflect upon the deeper meaning, purpose, and significance of an event of this magnitude writ in the heavens and now revealed ever having been there but now made known. Due to the immensity of this "Being" and its placement near to Virgo, is a directional hint through which the enquiry can begin. Surely, already in the Conscious awareness of the Solar Logos, and beyond — the Milky Way Herself, but a beauty spot in the far reaches of Her Supernal body. Yet, the truth ever remains that the cosmos is reflected in the smallest manifestations, and man is no exception. What then, we could ask, is being "nurtured" for birth in our galaxy, in our universe, in our earth, in our space-time, and of most relevance to us — through our humanity and ourselves? What does the appearance of Laniakea in our Awareness signify?
In this light, the quote about Virgo in Esoteric Astrology takes on a new light and new significance. "VIRGO, THE VIRGIN" is considered one of the most significant signs in the zodiac. It’s symbology concerns the whole goal of the evolutionary process which is to shield, nurture and finally reveal the hidden spiritual reality. This every form veils, but the human form is equipped and fitted to manifest it in a manner different to any other expression of divinity and so make tangible and objective that for which the whole creative process was intended." … "Virgo stands for the “womb of time” wherein God’s plan - the mystery and the secret of the Ages - is slowly matured" and revealed. EA, 251
We are asked to "see into” a Consciousness embodying a form of stupendous cosmic proportion. What if we began our creative and contemplative process by first looking deeply into this magnificent image — and then "feeling into" the Being that stands behind it. What if we then placed our life— and all life upon and including our “humble blue planet” — into Her beauteous, golden arms … into Her radiant energy field ... sensing Her vibration … contemplating a new Vision ... and being moved with new opportunity in That which is growing in Us - a new Humanity, and as cells inside a greater Being for new birth. Yes, let us begin here with "That".
Doing so, a new sense of freedom expands the sentient feeling nature ... the intuition reveals individualized, solarized consciousness meeting a "spaciousness" that expands into an immeasurable “Infinite” .... releasing the temporary confines and holds of finite life into something of great and immeasurable Beauty. “A wondrous Truth is in Beauty. Cosmos affirms evolution by this formula…”.
Let us not allow, therefore, the temporary conflagrations arising on this planet - born of old makings and a dying human order of things – to imprison our consciousness from both witnessing and participating in a "stellar-born” significance confirming new growth and new birth. Let us lasso all human born conflagrations, and after seeing them for what they are, place them as inconsequential particles of dust into one of the many arms of this great Being – Who with Her next breath makes them into ‘something beautiful’. Let us prepare to birth ourselves – to be birthed by – expanding spheres of radiance – of lighted consciousness – and of unfathomable Love.
As we penetrate and then release our consciousness into ’the All’ that this sign portends, the issues of our lives are but temporary wisps of illusion in the humbling presence of Laniakea Whose manifesting body of 100,000 galaxies evokes a speechless wonder and a silent hymn:
Glory, Glory, Glory,
Hosanna in the Highest,
Symbol of “Universes without End”,
We are Humbled in Thy Glory,
A Whisper of What Thou Art.
In Identified Awareness,
Through Sacred Allowing,
The Real revealing a Hidden Treasure.
The Sacred Word Sounding Universes without End
The Song of the Monad - The Self
From the Infinite Source of All – the very Fount of Being – aeons upon aeons ago came I,
Issuing forth as a Spark from the Essence of Flame Itself, aware of naught but transcendent glory,
Commencing a cyclic journey covering incomputable periods of time,
Descending from the regions of starry brilliance—
Akin to their flaming lustre, free from all mantles of form—
I could speed anywhere in the vast reaches of Space:
Through solar systems or galactic universes, withal having no feeling of awareness,
Yet ever impelled onward and downward, irresistibly drawn to the regions of density—
Descending lower and lower, stage by stage, attracted to the realms of Form.
There I gathered vestures pertaining to the Kingdoms of Fire, Air, Water and Earth,
Lingering an aeon in each kingdom, seeking ever a permanent mansion.
At length I emerged from the subtle realms and became manifest in a material form,
Imbedded in a crystalline encasement, where the pristine brilliance of Flame itself was mirrored.
After long aeons and cycles I acquired new vestures:
Where lasting gems and shining brilliants were exchanged for beauty and symmetry of form, and color and fragrance,
Where the glowing sunlight stimulated yearning for a return to the ancestral Home—higher, ever higher.
With the passing of further aeons I entered another kingdom,
Having now the power of moving from place to place, and able to wing my way once more;
Then, with the taking on of warm-blooded vehicles, came new sensations of devotion, sacrifice and love.
At length I awoke to find myself one of the Host of the Human Kingdom,
Learning of the transmuting power of love, pulsating in consonance with the Divine Plan
Now under the regency of the Lordly Ah-hi, §
Consciously may I strive to speed upon my way to attain knowledge of Atman:
As the spark seeks to rejoin the Flame from whence it sprang.
Ever ascending upwards, higher even than the whirling Palaces of the Planetary Lhas ֍
Even to the Primeval Seven Sons of Light,
Past blazing suns and trailing comets, past galaxies and island universes,
Even to the Central Spiritual Sun . . .
For I have learned to say: Aham eva Parabrahma. ͼ
ʘ Atmagita may be rendered “The Song of the Monad”.
§ Ah-hi—Manasaputras—Sons of Mind—“The Awakeners of humanity”.
֍ Planetary Lhas—Planetary Regents, Watchers, or Logoi.
ͼ Aham eva Parabrahma: “I am verily the Boundless”.
(ATMAGITA - From the book, The Divine Plan by Geoffrey A. Barborka)
"20. See this, my son, that each of the living creatures returns again and again to one part of the cosmos: aquatic creatures to the water, terrestrial creatures to the earth, and winged creatures to the air. But man makes use of all these – earth, water, air, fire – and he sees heaven, and touches even this with his mind. God is both around all and through all, He is activity and power [and love], and so to experience God’s presence is not difficult, my son."
