what is ESOTERIC ADVENT
♦ THE DAWN ♦ ARRIVAL ♦ THE COMING ♦ BECOMING ♦ ADVANCING ♦ INITIATION
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) about the need for all religions to engage in a purification process. Letting go of old forms of language and crystalized beliefs (old dogma and doctrines) whilst bringing in the new, will facilitate the right conditions in preparation for the spiritual approach of the Christ – the “Coming One” and His closest allies, the Masters of Love-Wisdom, and the great Angels Who Christ will bring with Him. As the new world is rapidly unfolding, new religious and spiritual Truths and practices must be put into form to accompany an equally rapid unfolding consciousness in Humanity. To meet this deeper need is a primary purpose of Esoteric Advent.
As such, participants of the Esoteric Advent process increasingly come into that continuity of Consciousness, which when stabilized is that state of Being known as The Presence , by and through the Living Heart and those great living streams of Truths and Thought where the Great Ones abide. Together we are preparing the field for the Great Ones - on earth, and in so doing are met and drawn up in consciousness to that great magnetic center where the Heart of the 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, and accelerates 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.
Along the way, we are empowered and equipped "Upon the Lighted Way" of our return journey Home, and made useful in service of the Plan of God, whilst 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.

"...so many of us are becoming aware of the deep fullness of Christ's love and purpose for humanity... the Esoteric Advent (events) are preparing us to enter into the holiness of His presence..." MBK
"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
"Lots of gratitude and tons of Love to everyone ... Indeed "words" are missing and insufficient ..."
"Thank you, thank you for this blessed esoteric Easter week. It seemed even more precise and full of inspiration than ever before. The music lifted me to new heights of inner revelation and love. It was a wonderful experience to be with the soul star group and walk the way of the Christ together. .... Your service to the group to prepare the path for the Christ is greatly appreciated.
In deep love and appreciation, ..." LM
"These rhythmic opportunities for service to Humanity, the Soul Star Group, and one's own spiritual development advance the right orientation to spirituality. Thanks to ... and all participants who add their quota of spiritual understanding to the collective thought of fellow members of the one Human family." DW
"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
"What a beautiful nugget of truth to fall back on and truly get the understanding while navigating the energies of Aries: "And should hesitation, self-doubt or apparent lack of resources arise, call on the Angel of Aries to be reminded that "when We come forth from the plane of Mind, We rule". LB
"This morning after completing the Easter Week and full moon meditations I went to wash my feet. Wrapped in the glow of the contemplations and all the connections we had made, I became acutely aware of the power and significance of this time. I concentrated on 'Walking the Way of the Great Ones' and was taken at how beautifully 'natural' that felt. ... Thank you for this opportunity." LB
"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

HOW IT BEGAN
An intense inner need to restore the Christmas season to its sacred origins and deep spiritual purpose — its beauty and light, sacred prayers, lighted rituals, invocations to the Christ and Holy Mother (as the Divine Feminine) and to the Spiritual Hierarchy (the Kingdom of Souls where the "Love of God is Known") comes as a 'felt sense' of intense Love and Spiritual Power during this time of year. The Love of God as a vast Universal Consciousness ever lays just beneath the outer surface of the comings and goings of human living. Communion with the energies of the rising starry Heavens, with the legions of Angels about whom Christ spoke living within and among us, immersion in the sacred stories that tell of our divine origins and lead us to identification with the Real—all press upon the heart and mind as a deep heart longing and steady pressure for in-depth immersion in the pure Love and spiritual Light ever so prevalent on the inner planes during this and other sacred seasons throughout the year.
Obstacles to such immersion are great as the power of the 'lower worlds' steeped in materialistic rituals of pursuit hold so many captive and lost from the "Real". The noisy sounds, distractions and meaningless pursuits leaves many feeling empty and numb. Yet the strong pull of the Soul has us "wanting more" as the Soul is ever waiting for deeper discovery and fuller unfoldment. To take genuine time out of these distractions by aligning with and being immersed in the sacred rhythms and seasons of planetary cycles and spiritual religious cultures, we return to the sacred are are restored inwardly to begin again, and again.
Upon hearing words spoken firmly in consciousness during a full moon meditation four years ago to "Offer a Christmas advent this year ... for aspirants and disciples, for your spiritual community", a way forward began to emerge.
Experiencing the pure magic of an esoteric Christmas advent, and the spiritual seasons throughout the year, is a vibratory turn of the dial away from the noises of our world to attune to dimensions of Reality already powerfully present but which require a key to enter through a portal of group entry and a means for concentrated immersion.
One means of entry through such a portal into the dimension where walk the Masters of Love-Wisdom is through sacred ritual, contemplative Truths and meditations, unified invocation & evocation, and a group approach to Divinity.
ESOTERIC ADVENT DEFINED
Adopting the term 'Esoteric Advent' as the name for the "organism" embodying and overseeing this process, can be thought of as one of the early forms of a purifying stream of the 'Christian tradition' referred to in the Ageless Wisdom teachings. It is one of several new streams emerging among the major world religions flowing into one great river of the “new world religion” said to be coming into full flower over the next several hundred years.
Esoteric lineages of "the sacred" have preexisted and persisted throughout the Ages. Restoring "the sacred" is a primary goal of Esoteric Advent. Meeting spiritual needs of contemporary aspirants and disciples is another. Bringing forth Newer Truths from the Wisdom Teachings of contemporary Adepts and Masters (of the last and current century) is a means for updating outdated modes and doctrines offered in the majority of churches today.
In the Ageless Wisdom Teachings, an "Esoteric Advent" describes an event and process for The Coming One—the Christ, and His Great Companions to appear on earth and in the consciousness of Humanity. This is happening now in some measure, and will occur in greater measure after certain conditions are met by Humanity, and after the year 2025 - we are told, when the Christ and Masters of Love-Wisdom will meet in conclave for Their centennial meeting to review the progress Humanity has made and determine what plans can be laid for Their gradual appearance on earth.
Christ has not stood still when last we met Him in the streets of Old Jerusalem and neighboring cities and hillsides. His life continued, nor did He leave Humanity. The life and heart of the Christ is today pouring “gift waves” of new life—greater Light, increasing Love and spiritual Will and Power upon and through us, and is seeking new means and vehicles of expression. Participating Souls in consecrated groups such as ours, can provide a "chalice" for giving and receiving the higher energies of Love and those energies needed for reception and distribution to a world in great need of healing and His pervasive Blessings.
A New Jerusalem already stands on the inner planes, a shining City of Peace, awaiting birth in the consciousness of Humanity.
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, Lord Maitreya in Buddhism, Imam Mahdi for Muslims, The Messiah for Jews, White Buffalo for Native Americans, ...
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 Elders of our Race, 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 inner Groups of Light, or Ashrams, of great inner potency. 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 seen through visible crises, human suffering, and tests of choice, will and direction. At the same time, we have much to be hopeful for and expectant as we are also experiencing a great human Soul Advent. Great numbers of men and women are awakening to the “fact of the Soul” which is leading to an awakening of the Soul of Humanity – the Advent of the Soul of Humanity, connoting its readiness to take "Initiation" (a major expansion of Consciousness) and movement forward into the Kingdom of Souls.
Visible by the Knowers of our race — and "true seers" whose intuition is active to see, hear and understand from the altitude of the Soul, see we are inside an "Esoteric Advent" — a great swelling, sweeping tide as two Kingdoms in nature are coming into closer contact and eventual merging — the Human Kingdom and the Kingdom of Souls. They are approaching each other. As Humanity continues to awaken and unfold its higher nature and spiritual possibilities - the better Angels of its nature, this process will unfold with greater speed. As it does, the Watchers of the Race stand ready to offer aid, light, love and the power to effect positive change, in cooperation with Humanity, on behalf of the greater Plan of God.
"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 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 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)
