what is ESOTERIC ADVENT
♦ THE DAWN ♦ ARRIVAL ♦ THE COMING ♦ BECOMING ♦ ADVANCING ♦ INITIATION
“THE CHRIST PRINCIPLE IS TO BE FOUND AT THE HEART OF EVERY ATOM”
“Throughout the Universe, it is the Soul which is the conscious, sensitive theme of the divine Plan.” (EA, 295)
“Esoteric Advent” is the advent of the Soul as the Christ principle pours through all the Kingdoms of nature.
“O Hidden Life vibrant in every atom,
O Hidden Light shining in every creature,
O Hidden Love embracing all in Oneness,
Let each who feels One with Thee,
Know He is One with Every Other."
"A stream of energy comes from the sun, Sirius; this enters directly into the Hierarchy [the Kingdom of Souls] and carries with it the principle of buddhi, of cosmic love. This, in a mysterious way, is the principle found at the heart of every atom."
"The energy evoked in response to this relationship enters the Hierarchy via the Heart of the Sun, creating as a consequence a triangle of spiritual energy of enormous potency." (Rays & Initiations, 414/5)
Spiritual Hierarchy * * The Heart of the Sun
"The soul alone perceives correctly; the soul alone has the power to contact the germ or the principle of Buddhi (in the Christian phraseology, the Christ principle) to be found at the heart of every atom, whether it is the atom of matter as studied in the laboratory of the scientist, whether it is the human atom in the crucible of daily experience, whether it is the planetary atom, within whose ring-pass-not all our kingdoms of nature are found, or the solar atom, God in manifestation through the medium of a solar system. Christ "knew what was in man" and therefore could be a Saviour." (Light of the Soul, 19)
COMMENTS FROM PARTICIPANTS
“ … Thank you for your work! Esoteric Advent has been one of the most significant spiritual practices I have ever done and has been a tremendous experience. I look forward to continuing work with the Soul Star Group. Kind Regards, " LR
"... so many of us are becoming aware of the deep fullness of Christ's love and purpose for humanity... The Esoteric Advent (events and offerings) are preparing us to enter into the holiness of His presence..." MBK
"The quality of soul livingness spilling over into the world from the invocative-evocative field of Esoteric Advent is establishing an oasis of light and love ... one of many springing up within the light body of the planet." SB
Thank you, ... for all that you are offering which helps to gather together the NGWS (New Group of World Servers) so that we may work together on inner & outer levels. With love, gratitude & recognition." RDA
"What Joy! To be so generously guided into the LIVING presence of the Christ. To perceive it, to realize we are perceived as well. A week-long darshan in beautiful, embracing and inspiring energies. And to finally "turn around", go back into the world, knowing that Christ is with us, even unto the end of the age! ..." DN
“ … the most valuable part of Esoteric Advent for me was being a part of a group that was gathering intentionally around the exact same practices. I really like how you laid out the meditations so that a lot of comprehensive info was settled right into the practices. This helps a person learn at the same time they connect with the higher forces & helps produce the marriage between theory & practice.” LR

“Christ is the World Healer and Saviour. He works because He is the embodied soul of all Reality. He works today, as he worked in Palestine two thousand years ago, through groups. There He worked through the three beloved disciples, through the twelve apostles, through the chosen seventy, and the interested five hundred... Now He works through His Masters and Their groups, and thereby greatly intensifies His efforts. He can and will work through all groups just in so far as they fit themselves for planned service, for the distribution of love, and come into conscious alignment with the great potency of the inner groups.”
(Externalization of the Hierarchy (EXH), by Alice A Bailey, 604)
"The Christ principle, the true second Coming" and the New World Religion
“Eventually, there will appear the Church Universal, and its definite outlines will appear towards the close of this century. In this connection, forget not the wise prophecy of H.P.B. as touching events at the close of this century. This Church will be nurtured into activity by the Christ and His disciples when the outpouring of the Christ principle, the true second Coming, has been accomplished. No date for the advent do I set, but the time will not be long. (Externalization of the Hierarchy (EOH), 510)
“It must not be forgotten that only those souls who are on the Probationary Path or the Path of Discipleship will form the nucleus of the coming world [spirituality] religion. It exists on the inner planes for the purpose of gathering out of all the churches those who have reached the point in evolution where they can consciously and of their own free will place their feet upon that path which leads to the center of peace; who can in full awareness turn their eyes upon the Great Lord, and transmute the life of worldly endeavour into the life of service. The first detachment gathered into the coming Church will be found to be a part of the present great band of servers. These have, down the ages, been associated with the Christ in His work.
Remember always the fact of the work He did in connection with the last advent, and remember likewise that in the turning of the cyclic wheel, in the evolution of the spiral, similar conditions will eventuate, the same needs arise, and the same egos [Souls] incarnate that were present in the days of old in Palestine. The numbers of those associated with Him will be greatly increased, for all who knew Him in earlier incarnations in the ancient East, all whom He cured or taught, all who contacted Him or in any way incurred karma with Him or with the Master Jesus, will have the opportunity to cooperate at this time. Each sincere aspirant who is closely connected with the present Church organisations, who feels a close link with the Christ and who loves Him, can be practically sure that in Palestine they saw Him, knew Him and mayhap served and loved Him.” (EOH Page 513/4)
HOW "ESOTERIC ADVENT- CHRISTMAS" BEGAN
An intense inner need to restore the Christmas season to its sacred origins and deep spiritual purpose — through the beauty of the growing light, through sacred prayer, meditation and lighted rituals, through invocations to the Christ, Holy Mother (the Divine Feminine) and Spiritual Hierarchy (the Kingdom of Souls where the "Love of God is Known"), all increase the 'felt sense' of Love pulsing through the universe during these times. The Love of God as a vast Universal Consciousness ever lies just beneath the surface of the comings and goings of human living.
Communion with the energies of the starry Heavens and legions of Angels about whom Christ spoke living among us now are brought to life through living immersions in the sacred and teachings that illuminate our divine origins. All lead to a greater identification with Spirit, with that which is Real—pressing upon the heart and mind as a deep heart longing for the real — for pure Love and spiritual Light ever so present on the inner planes during the sacred seasons of the year.
Obstacles for direct immersion and impact are numerous and strong. The power of the 'lower worlds' to steep humanity in materialistic pursuits hold entire societies lost and captive from the "Real". The noise of the world, distractions and meaningless pursuits leave millions feeling numb and empty. Yet an equally strong pull of the Soul has us "wanting more"; the Soul is patient ever waiting for deeper contact and discovery. As we take genuine "time out" from the distractions of the world, as we immerse ourselves in sacred ritual rhythms and seasonal planetary cycles, we are returning again and again to the sacred, and we draw forth the Real until we stand free without blocks or restraint.
Several years ago, upon hearing words firmly spoken in a receptive consciousness during a full moon meditation to "offer a Christmas advent this year for aspirants and disciples and the spiritual community", a way forward began to emerge.
Experiencing the pure magic of an esoteric Christmas advent, and other spiritual offerings throughout the seasons of the year, began a vibratory turn of the dial away from the noise and materialism of the world. To come into contact with dimensions of Reality already powerfully present, the key of entry is Group Approach to Divinity.
The means of entry through dimensional portals 'where walk the Masters of Love-Wisdom' with the Christ and Angels among Him', are concentrated immersions in Contemplation upon the higher Ideals and Truths of Reality as understood in the Ageless Wisdom Teachings, group approaches to Divinity through simultaneous group invocation & evocation, and applications in every-day living with joyful recognition of the many realizations already present and emerging in the world today.
ESOTERIC ADVENT DEFINED
Adopting the term 'Esoteric Advent' as the name for the "organism" embodying this process is referred to in the Ageless Wisdom teachings. Reflecting an early form of a purifying stream of the 'Christian tradition', it is one of several newer streams emerging among the major world religions that are part of the great river known as the “new world religion” destined to come into full flower over the next several hundred years.
Esoteric lineages have preexisted and persisted throughout the Ages. The restoration of the Mysteries remains a primary theme of Esoteric Advent to meet the spiritual needs of contemporary aspirants and disciples. The 7 Newer Truths of the Wisdom Teachings brought forth by contemporary Adepts and Masters (of the last and current century) will bring forward a primary artery of new life, a life-line that will update outdated modes and doctrines offered by the majority of religious institutions today. What is esoterically understood as the Apostolic Succession keeps alive the true blood line or lineage of the Christ.
In the Ageless Wisdom Teachings, an "Esoteric Advent" is described as the process for The Coming One—the Christ and His Great Companions to re-appear on earth. This is happening now in some measure as evidenced by the more evolved segments of our humanity who reflect the Soul of Humanity, and will continue with greater speed after certain conditions are met by Humanity. In the year 2025 we are told the Christ and Masters of Love-Wisdom will meet in conclave for Their centennial meeting to review the progress Humanity has made and will determine the plans for Their gradual appearance to walk again among men.
The consciousness of the Being who holds the office of the Christ over-lighted the Disciple Jesus in the three remaining years of his life when last he walked through the streets of Old Jerusalem and nearby communities and hillsides. For the Christ, time has not stood still, nor has He ever left Humanity. His life and guiding Presence has continued unto this day as He pours "gift waves” of new life upon a thirsty humanity through the Masters Who serve Him and the groups of Disciples who serve humanity with light and love to better the conditions of life on earth. Participating Souls in consecrated groups can in turn provide a sanctified "chalice" for receiving and sharing the higher energies of Love for distribution to a world in need of healing and new growth.
A symbolic New Jerusalem stands ready on the inner planes as a shining City of Peace awaiting birth and emergence.
INVOKING THE "LIGHT OF THE WORLD"
IN CHRIST THE LIGHT OF THE AGES IS FOCUSED AND THE LOVE OF GOD IS CENTERED
A HIGHER PURPOSE
"Esoteric Advent" has a broader definition than the seasonal celebration of Christmas Advent along the lineage of one spiritual tradition.
An Esoteric Advent refers to the Advent or coming of The Christ—The Coming One, known by many names in other spiritual traditions such as the Lord Maitreya in Buddhism, the Imam Mahdi in Islam by Muslims, the Messiah in Judaism, White Buffalo by the Native Americans, and more.
Esoteric Advent is also the Advent of Christ's Great Companions Who He will bring with Him, some of Whom are already here preparing the Way for His coming. We may know of Them as the Masters of Love-Wisdom, the spiritual Hierarchy Who are the Elders of our Race and together as a group are the Kingdom of God, often simply referred to as the Great Ones. They form the Body of the Heart Center of the Lord of the World—where "the Love of God is known". They are the Spiritual Hierarchy, the Kingdom of Souls, comprised of Ashrams or centers along Ray lines of great inner potency of Light, Love and Holy Will — referred to as the "great potency of the inner groups". At the Center of all of these Groups stands the Christ—"the Master of All Masters, Teacher alike of Angels and of Men".
We are living in unprecedented times for our earth humanity evidenced through visible crises, world wide felt human suffering, and tests of choice or will and direction. At the same time, we have much to be hopeful for and expectant as we are also experiencing a human Soul Advent. Great numbers of men and women are awakening to the “fact of the Soul”. This in turn is leading to the awakening Soul of Humanity – the Advent of the Soul of Humanity, connoting its readiness to take the first "Initiation" (the Birth - a major expansion of Consciousness) and movement forward toward the Kingdom of Souls.
Visible to the "Knowers" of our race — and "true seers" whose intuition is awakened to see, hear and understand from the altitude of the Soul, we are inside an "Esoteric Advent" — a great swelling, sweeping tide of two Kingdoms coming into closer contact for eventual merging — the Human Kingdom and the Kingdom of Souls. As Humanity continues to awaken and unfold its higher nature and spiritual possibilities — the better Angels of its nature in response to need, it will continue unfolding its innate divinity with greater speed. As it does, the Watchers of the Race stand ready to offer Their aid, light, love and power to effect positive change in cooperation with Humanity on behalf of the blueprint that is the Plan of God for our Earth and Kingdoms of nature.
One goal of Esoteric Advent is to redeem and vivify the major festivals and spiritual Observances of the Christian tradition in response to what has been said (by the Master) that all major religions and institutions must engage in a purification process. Letting go of the old forms of language and crystalized beliefs (dogma and doctrines) whilst bringing in the new, will facilitate the right conditions for the spiritual approach of the Christ – the “Coming One” and His closest allies - the Masters of Love-Wisdom, and the great Angels Who work with Christ Who He will bring with Him. As the new world rapidly unfolds rising from the ashes of the old, newer spiritual Truths and practices must be put into form to accompany an equally rapid unfolding consciousness of the Soul of Humanity. To meet this deeper need is a primary purpose of Esoteric Advent.
As such, participants of the Esoteric Advent process increasingly come into a continuity of Consciousness, once stabilized, leads to the stage of Being of the Presence, by and through the Living Heart whose great living streams of Love and Truth connect us with the Great Ones Who embody the Love and Higher Will of God.
Together we are preparing the field for these Great Ones. In so doing we are drawn up in consciousness to that great magnetic center where the Heart of Christ abides.

Sacred Truths, Sacred Sounds, Sacred Visuals in Group Approach to Divinity.
As we engage in rhythmic group ritual approaches to divinity through processes steeped in the sacred text of newer and higher Truths, as we vibrationally attune to the deeper life quality of the Soul through sacred music, and as we are visually swept into the underlying foundations behind and toward visio divina - divine seeing, this spiritual trinity of approach conditions us for entering through portals of a new living Reality, accelerating our own progress for revelation and realization of the Christ Spirit (expanded Soul consciousness) in each of us, which in turn leads us to the Presence Itself.
"Upon the Lighted Way" we are empowered and equipped in our return journey Home to be made useful in service for the realization of the Plan of God. We learn to be in sacred relationship with each other and the earth upon which we live. We are 'Gods in the making' to walk the planes of Earth. We are the Ones we have been waiting for.
