Dear Friends of Esoteric Lent,
Below is the letter of introduction that was sent out to all participating Souls for Esoteric Lent through Easter.
Soon, by late mid-week (this Wednesday or Thursday), our first orienting thoughts and "Disciplines" will appear for group participation.
Know that our work has already begun through our inner upward turning and sacred expectancy.
Let us stand in the Blessings of the Christ ~ with open hearts,

Dear Friends of Esoteric Advent,
We are in an interim season betwixt Christmas Advent and the Three major Full Moon Festivals of April/Easter/Christ, May/Wesak/Buddha, and June/Humanity and the Christ.
As the Sun ingressed (moved into) Pisces yesterday, the 12th Sign, with this ingress, a powerful new energy of Synthesis – and summation, is now with us.
Recently, I received communications from ‘some among us’ requesting a continuing internal process during this interim period that would be over and above the monthly Full Moon rituals of group Approach to Divinity (which by the way, the Pisces 7 Day FM Approach will begin February 26) – with some suggestions that during this long interim we engage in new rituals, or have internet meetings (on webinars), or participate in a deepening process that is concurrent with a traditional church Lent – which for us would be an Esoteric Lent (through Esoteric Advent).
For those who are called, moved, magnetized or motivated to participate, we shall be offering an Esoteric Lent – beginning mid-week of this week which will run up to and through Easter week. Traditional Lent began last week with Ash Wednesday, and today, Monday, for the orthodox church.
We can associate and esoterically define Lent as a call to discipline – as defined below in the words of Master DK (MDK):
"This work," Christ said, "goeth not forth save by prayer and fasting." I call you to prayer and to meditation for both are needed today, fusing as they do the emotional and mental bodies into one aspiring whole. I call you to discipline, for that is the meaning of fasting and to the constant effort to live at the highest possible point all the time; this is so often a dream but not often a fact. Today, in the hour of the world's need, aspirants and disciples who are willing to make at least consistent, persistent effort are needed by humanity and the Hierarchy.”
For these reasons alone, it would be wise, true and good – in the spirit of the “will to good”, to enter into a group discipline process of “prayer and fasting”, esoterically understood.
I do not yet know what the actual process will be, given that I will be creating it – as inspired – as we go along. I sense it will be an immersion process, both mystical and occult/esoteric (the science of the Soul) – entering into a conscious relationship with the triune Self for the purpose of leading to Christhood (at Easter) that is individual, planetary and solar. “Christhood is the blossoming of a man of the earth into the man of the heavens, crowned”.
We will likely have a simple, daily ritual alignment with the Soul Star Group – the Christ and Hierarchy. We will build. Somewhere in the process we will study, contemplate and be impressed by the stages of Initiation that Christ, through Jesus, laid down and moved through –which we all will eventually move through.
The Esoteric Advent Lenten period will inwardly prepare us to participate more fully in the intense culminating period of Easter week. Our service offering will come through simultaneous group meditation and contemplations, offering our energies and ourselves in service to the Christ and the Great Ones. As before, this will be a self-disciplined process. If you wish to participate, simply go to the Esoteric Advent website -www.EsotericAdvent.org – in a few days time, I will put up a tab titled Esoteric Lent for us to Begin. I anticipate we will move thematically, in a weekly process, at our own pace.
*Note: I (we) would have written before now to prepare for this process, were it not for an unusual period of distracting electronic challenges. For example – today the wireless internet was down due to high winds, last week a personal cell phone (an older flip phone) began to be dysfunctional from attrition and old age, a wash machine ‘mother control board’ has been acting erratically – and prior to these recent anomalies, our car’s transmission needed complete replacement (and was in the shop for three weeks) – all the above requiring time, attention and loads of extra work. Sailing through the ‘distractions’ of the ‘unreal world of physical plane phenomena’ is part of the normal demands and vicissitudes of life on earth, but more troubling than these are the daily disturbing psychic waves in America brought to public attention as wave after wave of that which must be “purified, cleansed and healed” is brought to surface. And now, once again, the ongoing tragedy of children, teachers and innocent bystanders dying or traumatized by gun violence is a reminder that the greater ‘will of the people for the greater good’ has not sufficiently succeeded in “sealing the door where evil dwells” – yet.
The growing momentum of World Servers serving the Plan, and the intensified inner work of Light workers – of which we are a part, and the current worldwide goodwill movements great and small, plus the recent light and joy being brought into the world through the rituals of the Winter Olympic games, are all bringing renewal, upliftment and a note of balance to the chaos, unrest, stress and anxiety, and sense of unknown. We shall add our inner note of victory to the outer fray.
