THE SPIRITUAL POTENCIES OF THE CHURCH FESTIVALS
The SOLAR ANGEL, VENUS and the FIFTH PURPOSE of DEITY UNITED
THE SPIRITUAL POTENCIES OF FESTIVALS
BRING LATENT OPPORTUNITY
The Tibetan Master wrote: "There are many forms of energy and many spiritual potencies which are not as yet generally recognized but to which the church Festivals of all religions bear witness; these are released at the period of the Festivals."
Pentecost is a church Festival that (most often) takes place during Gemini and near the Solar Full Moon of Gemini where the planet Venus as the esoteric or Soul ruler transmits 5th and 2nd Ray energy. As the actuality of the "heavens" line up with these facts, we can be consciously aware and forward-looking as we avail ourselves of the opportunity at hand for these divine energies to build and be "released" through the channels of our participation. Participating in these annual rituals whilst having this esoteric knowledge offers a uniquely potent opportunity to be of service as we place ourselves individually and as a group "in the right place, at the right time" to give and gain the most on behalf of the Plan.
During this time, the planet Venus uniquely supports Solar Angelic contact for aspiring humanity, bringing us en rapport (in relationship) with God immanent
Through Venus (during this time and via our birth charts), our connection to the Solar Angels as divine mathematicians for affecting precise changes within our Causal body (Egoic Lotus) and vehicles of expression, strengthen and fulfill "the Mind that is in Christ" in us. Through exquisite mathematical precision, the Solar Angels know which energies to stimulate, release or unfold for further development and unfoldment. We are in God’s hands when in the Hands of the Solar Angel.
The Solar Angels are poised and 'ready' for conscious contact most especially during these times when heavenly channels are open through Venus as the Esoteric Soul transmitter (ruler) of Gemini, presupposing we do our part by being found rightly oriented, aligned and meditating in Their direction - if we so choose. Let us so choose.
THE SOLAR ANGELs
We prepare for the great Feast of Pentecost with the Solar Angels, the "returning Nirvanis" (Blissful Solar Angels) from an earlier solar system, serving as our Higher Selves as the Soul in us - betwixt Spirit and form, until the time of reunion with Spirit 'is our own'. The Solar Angels are said to be "Initiates of all degrees" and are members of the Council Chamber of the Sun ... awaiting a call for renewed activity by the Cosmic Christ and the planetary Logos, Sanat Kumara. A sense of Their very high Estate is gained when not even Masters can be members of the Council Chamber of Shamballa — a Planetary Center! And yet, These very great Beings have placed Their eyes upon us.
In our ritual Observance of the Feast of Pentecost, we include the Solar Angels to augment this Festival based upon the words of the Master that Pentecost will be one of the two primary Festivals celebrated in the new age. It is through the Agency of the Solar Angels that the Guardian Angel (a stepped down reflection) “walks with each human being from the moment of birth until death, embodying as much of the available light as the man—at any given moment upon the path of evolution—can use and express." (Esoteric Psychology-II,357)
The Solar Angels' deepest origins date back to the First Solar System where They passed through the human stage, and are now far beyond these lower evolutions. From the Pleiades to Sirius to the Heart of the Sun, to Venus and the Earth they descend. They arrived 21 million years ago at the request of the Solar Logos to help hasten the evolutionary process on Earth. They implanted the ‘spark of mind’ in the brains of the most developed among the animal kingdom, which led to the birth of the Fourth Kingdom of Nature, Humanity. The Solar Angels work to stimulate the nascent “Mind of Christ”, hence the term "the Sons of Mind" refers to us from those early days. They are our greatest eternal Friend, ever present with us, Whose task it is to bring us en rapport with our True Soul — the Spiritual Triad, and finally with our God-Self – Spirit — the Presence – the Monad 'returning Home whence we came'. This is the greatest Story ever to be told. Until that 'Day Be with Us' when we stand face to face with The Presence — our God Self, they shall serve as our intermediary — as our “Higher Self” — as the "Angel of the Presence".
Named Hearts of Fiery Love, They brought the spark of mind – the fire of Love in the minds of men, anchoring the spark upon the mental plane (the plane of Fire), and could descend no further. After long aeons of time, man becomes consciously polarized upon the higher mental planes where the Solar Angels are activated (awaken) to working with man for soul-infusion. Their work shall soon come to a long-awaited end, releasing Them to other work.
“As the [hu]man seeks to reach control of the mind, the soul in its turn becomes more actively aggressive. The work of the solar Angel has hitherto been largely in its own world and concerned with its relation to spirit, and with this the man, working through his cycles on the physical plane, has had no concern. The main expenditure of energy by the soul has been general, and outward-going into the fifth kingdom [the Kingdom of Souls where live the Masters of Love-Wisdom]. Now the solar Angel approaches a time of crisis and of re-orientation. In the early history of humanity there was a great crisis which we call individualisation. At that time the solar Angels, in response to a demand or a pull from the race of animal-men (as a whole, note that), sent a portion of their energy, embodying the quality of mentalization, to these animal-men. They fecundated [germinated], if I might so express it, the brain. Thus was humanity brought into being. This germ, however, carried within it two other potentialities, that of spiritual love and spiritual life. These must in due time make their appearance."
“The flowering forth of the mind in men, which so distinguishes the present age, indicates to the solar Angel a second crisis, of which the first was but the symbol. That for which the solar Angel exists is making its presence felt within humanity, and another strong pull is being exerted upon the solar Angel which this time will produce a second fecundation. This will give to man those qualities which will enable him to transcend human limitations, and become a part of the fifth or spiritual Kingdom in nature. The first effort of the solar Angel turned animal-men into human beings; the second will turn human beings into spiritual entities, plus the gains of experience in the human family." (Treatise on White Magic, 88)
Contact with the Solar Angel will unfold latent hidden potencies of the universal Soul. The unfolding spiritual life - ideas meditated upon, accepted as true and applied reach fruition as released hidden treasures from 'the upper chamber’ of the Soul. Led from the unreal to the Real, we come alive. This aliveness is the harvest.
Entering a greater light of the Sun, we escape the darkness. The 'lightness of being', renewing joy, intuitional fields of expanded awareness, the power to heal .... are revealed and increasingly take hold. Every Soul-inspired experience spirals toward new dimensions of freedom of expanded consciousness.
Let us be aware of these "appearances" as the fruits of the harvest.
OPENING MEDITATION - Part I
ʘ After bringing your awareness to the Crown Center, sound the sacred Word, OM … allowing Cosmic Christ energy flowing through Gemini to pour through all your subtle bodies and their centers — cleansing, purifying, purging all mis-qualified energy … raising your vibration to the peaceful Presence of the Soul. Om
ʘ Sounding the sacred Word, with a Breath of Life raise your energy (through aspiration) unto the “True Soul” — the Soul that is the Self Who is vibrating and expressing as a Trinity of the One Life, One Heart and One Universal Mind — which Christhood bestows.
ʘ Holding your hands open in a gesture of reception … allow the energies flowing through you to gain deeper entrance as you open more fully to the Fires of Spirit flowing through the True Soul to you — the “man on the ground of daily living”.
ʘ Expand your awareness as you step into the Soul Star Group, a Sphere of living Light — sensing all “Who have here gathered” in unified approach to Divinity for the experience of the sacred mysteries of Pentecost.
ʘ Visualize each Soul standing in the radiance of the Christ Circle, blended now in One magnanimous whole — a Sphere of living Light and Love and Holy Will.
Sense the living field of the Spiritual Hierarchy … gathered in the Holy Presence of the Lord of Love … attendant Angels ... and the still greater Beings of Shamballa who comprise that Center where the Will of God is known.
In bringing forth the Soul of Humanity and the Plan of God, we sound together with the Christ the Great Invocation.
OM OM OM
Sound a silent OM
Diamond Soul Meditation with the Solar Angel:
◊ Come en rapport (in close and harmonious relationship) with the Solar Angel - invite the Angel of the Presence ... to be present with you now.
Sense the touch, the indwelling, radiant Presence. ◊ Softly (or silently) sound the sacred Word, Om, confirming the Solar Angel's Presence ... touching your awareness.
Be with the Angel of the Presence for as long as you sense it is right to do so … allowing the Angel to work with you now ... expanding awareness, making subtle inner alignments, adjusting frequencies ... as a divine Mathematician.
◊ Affirm: 'The renewing gifts of Angelic Intelligence flow through all my Centers correcting imbalances, restoring well-being and divine order, and attracting right conditions through which I can express the true Self.'
THE FIFTH RAY PURPOSE OF DEITY
As It Relates To PENTECOST
“A beam of light illuminates the form; the hidden now appears. Knowledge of God and how He veils Himself finds consummation in the thoughts of man. The energies and forces receive their secret names, reveal their inner purpose, and all is seen as rhythm, a returning on itself. The great scroll can now be read. God's purpose and His plans are fixed, and man can read the form.
The plan takes form. The plan is form. Its purpose is the revelation of the mind of God. The past reveals the form, but the present indicates the flowing in of energy.
That which is on its way comes as a cloud which veils the sun. But hid behind this cloud of immanence is love, and on the earth is love and in the heaven is love, and this,—the love which maketh all things new—must stand revealed. This is the purpose back of all the acts of this great Lord of Knowledge.”
The word Pentecost carries within itself the root word, pente, five. Hence esoteric correspondences to the number five can be heightened today through the impress of the 5th Ray (of Science and Mind).
Esoterically, the number 5 is the number of the perfected man. The perfected human has mastered all the lower 18 sub-planes of human living, earning the rank of Master (of the 5th degree). It is the perfected Vitruvian man and the five-pointed Star of the Christ. This is our destiny as it was the destiny of the Masters Who once were men before us, Who now lead the Way as members of the Kingdom of Souls (the Spiritual Hierarchy). They lead the Way.
In this solar system, the 5th ray flows through the planet Venus as the Higher Mind (and lower mind) in man. Here again we find a correspondence with the Solar Angels as They come through Venus, infusing Solar Fire through the Souls of men. Yet behind every radiant Lord of the Fifth number of God stands the great Deity of Love, the cosmic Second Ray Lord of Love-Wisdom infusing all life within this Solar System with Itself as Love. Therefore, whenever there is a 5, know it leads to the 2 behind it, the Second Ray of Love-Wisdom, standing behind all the seven.
The Tibetan Master beautifully describes this truth and function of the 5th Ray Lord:
"... on the earth is love and in the heaven is love, and this—the love which maketh all things new—must stand revealed. This is the purpose back of all the acts of this great Lord of Knowledge".
"Knowledge of God and how He veils Himself finds consummation in the thoughts of man".
In the wonder of these Truths, the true purpose of knowledge is revealed which is to condition the mind with the potencies of Love ... Beauty ... and inner Perfectment.
◊ Having contemplated and allowed these diamond truths to penetrate our "mind", let us confirm ~
A "love-filled mind" linked with the 5th purpose of Deity reveals "the love which maketh all things new".
In the mantric phrase 'Let the Mind that is in Christ Be in You' renew us on this Day.
Let It Be So.
Let us recall the "story of the upper chamber in which the disciples met and arrived at a true recognition of the Risen Christ and at a perfect and complete understanding of each other. Through a touch of prevision and prophetic insight, they foresaw a little of the wonder of the Aquarian Age."
◊ The fruits of Soul Harvest are revealed in the Upper Chamber of the Soul - the Holy of Holies. The Soul that is the Self widens the channel for spontaneous expressions of Soul to be known, felt and experienced. In preparation for the experience on Pentecost Sunday of the Fires of Spirit descending on the prepared assembly,
