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 sweet relationship) with These great Beings of 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, strengthens "the Mind that is in Christ" in us. Through exquisite mathematical precision, the Solar Angel knows which petals (energies) to stimulate, release or unfold for further unfoldment. We are in good "God" hands.
The Solar Angels are poised and 'ready' for conscious contact especially during these times when the heavenly channels are open through Venus, 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, Who serve as our Higher Selves, 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 eye 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 far beyond. From the Pleiades to Sirius to the Heart of the Sun, to Venus and the Earth. 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, and which lead 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" became known. They are our greatest eternal Friend, ever present with us, Whose task is to bring us en rapport with our True Soul - the Spiritual Triad, and finally with our God-Self – 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 of God, They 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 "lower". After long aeons of time, as man becomes consciously polarized upon the higher mental planes, the Solar Angels are activated (awaken) to work with man for soul-infusion ... after which time Their work soon comes to a long-awaited close releasing Them.
“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)
The Solar Angels stimulation unfold our innate potentials, the latent hidden potencies of the Soul. The unfolding spiritual life - ideas meditated upon, applied, and accepted as true, mature and reach fruition springing forth in consciousness as released hidden treasures met by 'the upper chamber of the Self'. From the unreal to the Real we are led. We come alive. This aliveness is the harvest.
Entering a greater light of the Sun, we further escape the darkness. The 'lightness of being', renewing joy, intuitional fields of expanded awareness, new powers to heal .... and more, increasingly take hold. Every taste, every glimpse, every Soul-inspired experience spirals toward new dimensions of freedom and expanded consciousness in daily living. Let us be aware of these "appearances" as the fruits of the harvest.
ʘ After bringing awareness to the Crown Center, sound a sacred OM, allowing its energy to pour through all the Centers, cleansing, purging and banishing all mis-qualified energy.
ʘ On the in-breath, raise your energy (aspiration) drawing in the power of the “True Soul” (The Soul That Is the Self) that conveys the energy of the One Life, the One Heart of Love and Universal Mind, that is the power of the inner Risen Christ. Sound the sacred Word, Om (silently or aloud).
ʘ Sound the sacred Word, OM ... pouring through all the Centers.
ʘ Align with and enter into the Soul Star Group with “We who have here gathered” for our unified Divine Approach to the Sacred Mysteries of Pentecost.
ʘ Visualize each Soul standing in the radiance of a lighted circle, blending now in One magnanimous whole a Sphere of living Light and all-Pervading Love ... Visible in the Center is a triple stream of "Living Light, Love and Holy Will" ... sense the living Field of the Spiritual Hierarchy as All are gathered in the energy of the Masters of Love-Wisdom and The Christ ... attendant Angels ... and Beings greater Still in the Heavens beyond Shamballa ...
Sound a silent OM
Diamond Soul Meditation with the Solar Angel:
◊ Come en rapport (in close and harmonious relationship) with the Solar Angel - The Angel of the Presence ... 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 it feels right, allowing the Angel to work with you now ... making subtle inner alignments, adjusting frequencies, ...
◊ Affirm: 'The renewing gifts of Angelic Intelligence flow through all my Centers correcting imbalances, restoring health, bringing well-being, restoring order and attracting right conditions ...'
THE FIFTH RAY PURPOSE OF DEITY
As It Relates To PENTECOST
The word Pentecost carries within itself the root word, pente, five. Hence esoteric correspondences to the number five flow and meet their source through 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) and attaining the five-pointed star of the Christ. This is our destiny as was the destiny of the Masters Who once were men before us and Who now lead the Way as members of the Kingdom of Souls (the Spiritual Hierarchy).
In this solar system, the 5th ray flows through the planet Venus and to the Higher Mind in man. Here again we find 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 Second Ray Lord of Love-Wisdom infusing all life within this Solar System with Itself as Love. Therefore, whenever there is a 5, there is a 2 standing behind.
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, conveying new potencies of Love ... Beauty ... and inner Perfectment.
◊ Having contemplated and allowed these diamond truths to penetrate your "mind", reflect upon the following:
A "love-filled mind" has linked with the 5th purpose of Deity revealing "the love which maketh all things new".
In the Light of Love and Holy Will, the mantric phrase 'Let the Mind that is in Christ Be in You' renews us on this Day.
Let it be done
"Turning human beings into spiritual entities" deeply corresponds with the Feast of Pentecost. The risen Christ becomes a fact. Through the stimulation of the Mind of Christ in all, we understand one another in One Spiritual Speech that is the language of the Soul. Speech rings golden, pure and true. Intuition opens portals to Truth sub-standing Reality ... completed Understanding ... higher Hearts of Comprehension are made known.
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 and the winds of divine powers are released ... allowing for the spontaneous expression of Spirit and Soul ... known, felt and experienced.
Creatively vivify your experience with one or more of the following phrases (or create your own):
◊ The vivifying power of the Holy Spirit flowing through all my Centers brings forth the powers of my Soul
◊ The fertile soil of my Soul-infusing Mind is the Christ Mind that lives in Me
◊ Soul freedom and Soul expression are fruits of the Holy Spirit coursing through my life
◊ The magnetic power of my innermost Center attracts all Good to and through me
◊ Holding the Christ Mind steady in Light and Love, above the darkness, opens my channel for God's Love and Will to flow through me now
◊ Divine possibilities and powers latent in my Being leave behind the 'retarding' influence of the lower senses
◊ "Giving Love" is the true meaning of Sacrifice through which I give my life
◊ Joy arises from living my life purposely in service of the Plan of my Soul, now and forever more
◊ Lightness of Being is my Joy
◊ A True Perception of Pentecost births new Vision for Humanity and renews all life activity
