“If the Stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore; and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God which had been shown!
But every night come out these envoys of beauty,
and light the universe with their admonishing smile.”
(Ralph Waldo Emerson: Nature)
∆ Let us make our alignments … sounding the Sacred Word OM pouring through all the Centers, stepping into the Peaceful Presence of the Soul and Soul Star Group ... sending forth a ray of Love and Light to the Heart of the Christ and Spiritual Hierarchy … filling the Chalice of the Christ Heart.
Let us begin each day impressing our Consciousness with this realizing thought:
"The true Church of Christ is the assembly of all who live through the life of Christ, and whose life is one with His."
“The fact of the resurrection will be demonstrated during the next few centuries, and the Living Christ will walk among men and lead them onward towards the Mount of Ascension. The Pentecost will become truth. All men will come under the tide of inspiration from on high, and though they may speak with many tongues, they will all understand each other”. (EOH, 471)
◊ As we consider the "Living Christ" impressing humanity and "Pentecost becoming truth", we can increasingly sense the reality of the "Tide of Inspiration from on High" sweeping through Humanity.
Reflect upon humanity speaking many tongues yet all understanding each other. Would this suggest shifts onto a higher sub-plane, the plane of Unity Consciousness, where differences have fallen away and love rules all relations and actions?
◊ Visualize yourself and the groups of which you are a part coming into Unity consciousness - where all understand each other perfectly, where human relations are harmonized, and conditions on earth reflect the rule of love, beauty abounds and the tide of inspiration is present, felt and experienced.
Imagine such "Days With Us" even now in some measure. In so doing, we impress the field of Humanity making it so as Devic/Angelic builders work with and through us in our spheres of daily living.
SOUND the GREAT INVOCATION
OM, OM, OM

THE COMING OF HARVEST
“Say ye not, “There are yet four months and then cometh the harvest? Behold! I say unto you that the harvest is come already.”
"Was it not so even in the days of Christ? If the words were spoken by the Master, there must have been a very real meaning in them. And if He meant that the spiritual harvest had already come when the results of His Life and Teachings should be gathered in, then we ought to be able to find these results. It is quite true that we are pointed to the day of Pentecost for them, as recorded in the Acts of Apostles.
The awakening of the Intuition and the great Joy of the coming “harvest” — the full enlightenment of divine vision … of men and women clothed in the white garments of purity seeking to see and hear the Divine within the sanctuary of the Soul and the consciousness of the Divine Estate.
We are in the days of “the harvest” now – for all who are able to drink of the Waters of Divine Life.
The fields are whitening unto harvest. Christhood is being restored as the Redeemed Life is being made manifest. The Divine One had spoken and continues to speak… the harvest is come when the glorious results are making themselves manifest in the awakening of Souls all over the world. They seek the divine meaning of life, some arrive at the true vision of Christhood, and others enter into the realization of that most blessed Estate. …
The Will of the Father is the Redemption of all Souls, even those who have gone away into the “far country” beyond the land of spiritual consciousness. Redemption must include all Souls – that not one should perish but all should find their way back Home ..."
"O Mystery of Mysteries. O Love Divine and Triumphant! "
(The Master: His Life and Teachings, J. Todd Ferrier, 522/7)
“They were all together in one place”
MORE CONTEMPLATIONS (from Metaphysical Dictionary)
"To the one who is awakened to spiritual reality, the “day of Pentecost” signifies the degree of mind action that brings to consciousness the presence of Spirit as substance."
"When we fill our mind with true ideas about God and man, and gather our thoughts to one point or “place”, that point or place is: “I am that which I conceive myself to be in Spirit.” If we proceed … there will be an inrush of spiritual force from the higher realms of consciousness that will fill the whole body (described in Acts 2:2)."
“They were all together in one place” is the concentration of all the faculties and activities of mind and body in acknowledgement and praise of Spirit. The result of this concentration is that the ordinary thinking mind (conscious mind) and the superconscious mind (perfect Christ mind) blend and there is a descent of spiritual energies into the body – “it filled all the house.”
“The day of Pentecost” signifies a gathering of spiritual powers for the purpose of harvesting the fruits of Spirit; otherwise, a dedicating of these new forces of Spirit to unselfish service in the vineyard of the Lord.
