Esoteric Lent 2019

[HBH] To “summon the Soul of Humanity to Life.”

I call you to prayer and to meditation for both are needed today, fusing as they do the emotional and mental bodies into one aspiring whole. I call you to discipline, for that is the meaning of fasting, and to the constant effort to live at the highest possible point all the time; this is so often a dream but not often a fact. Today, in the hour of the world’s need, aspirants and disciples who are willing to make at least consistent, persistent effort are needed by humanity and the Hierarchy.   (EOH, 353)

[JB] The Soul, with capital S, summons the Personality to experience and express the Life of the Monad. The soul, with lower case s, is the center of consciousness of the Personality.

The bridge between the soul, in the highest sub-plane of the concrete mind (the mental unit), and the highest sub-plane (atomic) of the abstract mind is the Antahkarana, woven by the Soul-infused Personality.

Prayer and meditation need a third vertex of action to complete the triad of service. In service, mind, emotion and skill in action converge on the physical plane to meet a need, human and planetary.

The Power of Meditation, the Loving Prayer and the Enlightened Action, in wise, loving and effective service. This fiery synthesis is Agni Yoga, the Practice of the Presence, “the constant effort to live at the highest possible point all the time.

This “call to the discipline of living at the highest possible point all the time – a (practice) for rising to and stabilizing higher consciousness in the upward spiral of the initiatory journey,” is Agni Yoga, a life lived from the constant “point of tension” of the Soul, the Angel of the Presence, in profound attentiveness, serene expectancy (Advent) and perfect adaptability.

Discipline and practice: two words that merit reflection. Discipline is an act of will. Practice is an act of love. Discipleship training involves both discipline and practice in order to skillfully serve.

“The initiate considers service as the spontaneous, easy expression of a definite soul contact, brought down on to the physical plane and giving insight, practicality and inspiration to the disciple as he works on the outer plane of expression.” – DINA I, 84

Subject: Invitation to Esoteric Lent – Begins Wednesday March 6 – on the New Moon of Pisces

Dear Friends of Esoteric Advent,

This Wednesday, March 6 (Thursday, March 7 in the South Pacific) – on the New Moon of Pisces, we shall begin the sacred ritual process of Esoteric Lent – which is a “call to discipline” to “live at the highest possible point all the time”— in preparation for EASTER and the THREE ANNUAL FESTIVALS highlighting the year.  In this period, we shall move to unfold and stabilize yet another vibrational rung(s) on the ladder of the rising Christ – as individuals and as a consecrated Group, flowering the Soul of Humanity through which the Saving Force flows for all the Kingdoms of Nature.

In this purpose, when we work together as a group Soul, we summon the Soul of Humanity to Life.

Of this “call to discipline” the Master DK (MDK) has much to say to broaden our cooperation with Them.  Here follows an excerpt:

I call you to prayer and to meditation for both are needed today, fusing as they do the emotional and mental bodies into one aspiring whole. I call you to discipline, for that is the meaning of fasting, and to the constant effort to live at the highest possible point all the time; this is so often a dream but not often a fact. Today, in the hour of the world’s need, aspirants and disciples who are willing to make at least consistent, persistent effort are needed by humanity and the Hierarchy.   (EOH, 353)

We are in the preparatory years of the Advent and “Appearing” of the Great Ones and The Christ.  There is a balance needed between God Transcendent (what the Piscean Age brought forth) and The PRESENCE or God Immanent (what the Aquarian Age prescribes).  This too is an Advent – God Immanent is the manifestation of God through all forms:

“God Transcendent eternally exists, but can only be seen and known and correctly approached by God Immanent—immanent in individual man, in groups and nations, in organised forms and in religion, in humanity as a whole and in the planetary Life Itself.”    (EOH, 355/6)

In God Immanent, we manifest.  Between now and Easter Holy Week, the Esoteric Lent focus will be “a call” to the discipline of “living at the highest possible point all the time” – a training so to speak for rising to and stabilizing higher consciousness in the upward spiral of the initiatory journey —individually and as a consecrated Group in the rising Soul of Humanity. When we work together as a group Soul, soul-focused energy is greatly magnified. We work for Humanity as saviors in Christ.

In our preparations for the “Appearing” of the Great Ones and The Christ, let us be renewed in our call “to discipline” to “live at the highest possible point all the time.”
