The daily meditations and spiritual practice rituals are a self-directed, self-disciplined process. The Christ works through all groups dedicated to the distribution of Love throughout Humanity and the outworking of the Plan. Showing up everyday in the Peaceful Presence of the Soul, linking with the Soul Star Group and Master's of Love Wisdom with Christ at the Center, we place ourselves inside a great living field of potency known as the great potency of the inner groups. The cooperative attendance of Angels working on behalf of the evolution of Humanity and the Spiritual Hierarchy are ever with us, at our side.
Sincere in our Meditative work, let us engage in at least one Diamond Soul Practice or Contemplation daily (time constraints understandably prevent us from doing them all). More important than time spent is “soul-mind-brain intensity" and rhythmic regularity placing ourselves en rapport (in line) with living energy flows. "Desired contacts" and eventual internal 'translation' into "higher livingness" is what we are all moving toward, whether known or not. Soul waves lead into the Heart of the Ashram — a living Center of Light, Love and Power of great abiding Beauty, Presence and "Treasures from on High".
Below, what follows after the text readings is a sacred Holy Communion Ritual. This cannot be done in pieces but as a whole, and only when properly prepared to receive it. It is being offered on a Thursday as the day dedicated to the Reappearance of the Christ in esoteric teachings. It would be better to postpone this ritual for a time when you are "ready" rather than rush through it. Read through it first and decide. You also have the choice to have "wine and bread" ready (or water and bread) - or not if you prefer to receive just the 'energy' of these transubstantiated forms.
With these thoughts let us begin Pentecost Thursday.
a ritual of divine approach for pentecost
"Ascending to the "Upper Chamber"
"Pentecost is the universal dissemination of the Christ consciousness throughout all time in the heart of every human being..."
"Lo, I am with you all the days, even until the end of the world"
Draw near to Me and I will draw near to you.
The gates of Pentecost swing wide open with magnificence and grace to all who prepare and all who thirst to receive the blessings of the Holy Spirit Mystery.
Pentecost corresponds with the number 5, the perfected man. Pentecost is celebrated on the 50th day or seven Sundays after Easter, almost always in the sign of Gemini esoterically ruled by Venus (the 5th Ray) and in close proximity to the Gemini Full Moon which is the closest to the Christ and Humanity. It is the last of three primary Hierarchical Festivals of the year celebrating the three Divine aspects of Life: Easter in Aries is a celebration of the Life energies of Love leading to Revelation, Resurrection and eventual Ascension; Wesak during the Taurus Full Moon transmits the Life aspect of Divine Will conveyed through the Buddha and the Christ; and the Festival of the Christ and Humanity during the Gemini Full Moon Festival infusing Humanity with the energy of the Christ and all that Humanity needs to take its next steps forward. Pentecost augments this final Festival as we reap the spiritual Harvest as described (on Wednesday). Pentecost is a "spiritual harvest" of all our preceding spiritual work.
Let us recognize and deepen the opportunity before us and the opportune time we live in. As we consciously participate with the potent energies of Pentecost in the liturgical calendar year, we bring with us our esoteric knowledge and spiritual contact, and thus we serve. As a harvest, Pentecost culminates a series of inner unions and communions that shall be reflected outwardly in the world of form and time. The seeds of the Festival of Pentecost were sown in the birth and rebirth of the Christ Mind in the consciousness of man (and eventually the whole of humanity) during Esoteric Christmas Advent and the "Full Moon Festival of Capricorn". Nurtured and brought into group livingness and communion during Esoteric Easter Advent — the Resurrected Life contacted during the Festival of Aries strengthens ones identity as Spirit and the Way of return. During the Wesak Festival and the annual return of the Buddha uniting East and West with His Brother, the Christ, a blessing from Shamballa further unites the Center of Will with Humanity and its flowering for the family of Nations to demonstrate a true Pentecost celebration of Humanity through "right human relations". The Soul of Humanity shall sing in vibrational Joy when during the June Festival of the Christ and Humanity, the fourth Kingdom of nature is brought nearer to the jurisdiction and leadership of the Christ as world Teacher helping Humanity unfold its Soul destiny.
Remembering the Essence of the past, present and future
“The Festival of Easter and the Feast of Pentecost will be the two outstanding days of the religious year. Pentecost is, as you must well know, the symbol of right human relations in which all men and nations will understand each other and, though speaking in many and diverse languages, will know only one spiritual speech.”
First is "the story of the upper chamber to which the man carrying the water pot and typifying Aquarius led the disciples, and in which the first communion service was held, participated in by all and foretelling that great relationship which will distinguish humanity in the coming age, after the tests of the Piscean Age. Such a communion service has never yet been held, but the New Age will see it take place.
Second is “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 in spite of the symbolic diversity of tongues. They had a touch of prevision, of prophetic insight, and foresaw a little of the wonder of the Aquarian Age.
... At the center of each of these pictures is to be found the Christ."
(Destiny of the Nations, 151/2 – last page of book)
Let us Be in these energies now …
Pentecost is an event that "signifies the universal dissemination of the Christ consciousness throughout all time in the heart of every human being; to this the words and promise, "Lo, I am with you all the days, even until the end of the world," bear witness.” (EOH, 356)
Let us Pause to take in theses words, and the next.
A universal Holy Communion is a meeting place in the 'holy chamber' of the Lord - the great Heart field of Christ Whose Consciousness includes and transcends our personal universe. As His waves of inspiration and redemptive energy reach us, our minds are filled with true ideas about God and man. Gathered in one place in the upper chamber, we come to know the true Identity within ourselves … and Humanity.
The group that met in times of old “were all together in one place” signifying the concentration of all their faculties and activities of body, mind and soul. They were met by the perfected risen Christ, blending the invoking disciples and the Holy Spirit's descent “filling all the house”. (Metaphysical Bible Dictionary)
One-pointed and expectant with invocative intensity, lifted through communion born of Buddhic common unity, an inrush of Spirit swept through them filling their house with new life … with this new life came potentials of prophetic vision and the flaming power of Spirit.
"When God immanent in every human heart is awakened and functioning (even if only in a small degree), the potency ... as an act of invocative approach to God will prove amazing and miraculous in its results. A response beyond man's deepest hopes will be evoked from Christ and His group of workers." (POH, 160)
Let us REFLECT upon these truths and potentials … sensing the energy of God immanent in every human heart and the potency of this truth that changes everything … leading to a higher order of living and God-like expression!
COMMUNION MEDITATION and CONTEMPLATION
Pentecost is a culmination of a series of inner and outer unions and communions.
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 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
Holy Thursday Communion
THE FEAST OF HOLY RELATIONSHIP
Let us Pray … Let us Meditate … Let us Contemplate … Let us Be Flowed through from On High
"Love, too, would set a feast before you, on a table covered with a spotless cloth, set in a quiet garden where no sound but singing and a softly joyous whispering is ever heard."
"This is a feast that honors your holy relationships, and at which everyone is welcomed as an honored guest ..."
LET US CONTEMPLATE
"In a holy instant, grace is said by everyone together, as they join in gentleness before the table of communion."
"And I will join you there, as long ago I promised and promise still. For in your new relationship am I made welcome. And where I am made welcome, there I am." (ACIM, 411)
ʘ We now invite the Christ into our Heart ... reverently sounding the sacred Word, OM, whilst coming into COMMUNION with His Holy vibration.
Having entered the Holy Chamber, Hear now His Word,
'I give you now the "Waters of Life" ... the sweet Wine of Life Eternal … the Divine Potency of Waters Universal coursing through all life and all Substance. Come — Partake, Receive, Drink Deep of the Holy Waters of Life Eternal coursing through you and all Life. Do this in Remembrance of Me and My Living Presence with you now.’
(As you drink deep, sense the new life energy coursing through you now - through the substance of your holy body ... nourishing, replenishing, vivifying, transubstantiating ... )
'I give you now the "Bread of Life" ... Divine Universal Substance substanding all forms. Partake, Receive, Distribute the Bread of Life infusing all forms with new life and high purpose. Do this in Remembrance of Me and My Living Presence with you now.'
(Father and Mother, Life and Substance unite, evolving the Christ in you to rise)
ʘ In the sacred altar chamber of YOUR HEART/MIND ... listen intently as Christ speaks giving each a message (heard through the Christ in you). (Expect the message to be plainly simple ... in simple words or impression or pure stream of rising energy).
ʘ Let us re-align as the Soul Star (Group) coming into resonance with the “great Potency of the Inner Groups (the Ashrams of the Masters of Love-Wisdom)”.
◊ Together As One, imagine the Group extending the Light of Love in one continuous vibration to the Heart of Christ standing in the Center.
ʘ We then remain open and receptive for the return flow pouring through the Soul Star Group (and all sanctified Groups) who meet in Holy Communion during these consecrated Holy days of Pentecost … giving Blessings of "The Good" to Humanity and the World.
Listen intently for impression for the Soul Star Group.
ʘ When our ritual communion is sensed complete, imagine Christ and the Spiritual Hierarchy leading all assembled in the sounding of the Great Invocation.
(The Great Invocation below is combined with an alternate version for your choice)
THE GREAT INVOCATION - A World Prayer
From the point of Light within the Mind of God,
Let light stream forth into the minds of men [into human minds],
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God,
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men [into human hearts],
May Christ [the Coming One] return to Earth.
From the center where the Will of God is known,
Let purpose guide the little wills of men—[guide all ‘human will’],
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the center which we call the race of men [the human race],
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out,
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
Sound a Sacred Om (embodying the Light of God)
Sound a Sacred Om (embodying the Love of God)
Sound a Sacred Om (embodying the Will of God)
Let us "Be In" the living energies coursing through us, throughout the Soul Star Group and throughout Humanity on this Day.
ABOUT THE GREAT INVOCATION:
"The great Invocation or Prayer does not belong to any person or group but to all Humanity. The beauty and the strength of this Invocation lies in its simplicity, and in its expression of certain central truths which all [humanity], innately and normally, accept—the truth of the existence of a basic Intelligence to Whom we vaguely give the name of God; the truth that behind all outer seeming, the motivating power of the universe is Love; the truth that a great Individuality came to earth, called by Christians, the Christ, and embodied that love so that we could understand; the truth that both love and intelligence are effects of what is called the Will of God; and finally the self-evident truth that only through humanity itself can the Divine Plan work out."
