OPENING THE HEART CHAKRA: Love is Life
Gemini Full Moon 2019:
World Invocation Day: 17 JUNE 2019
June was the month which climaxed the three major Festivals of the spiritual year that commenced in March. It is the month we celebrate the whole of Humanity being recipient to the love of God. June is the month dedicated to the Goddess Juno, and is committed to love, relationships or marriages.
The June Full Moon festival is the third festival which climaxes the trinity of major Full Moon Festivals of the spiritual year. The three Full Moons of Aries -Taurus- Gemini colour the rest of the other nine full moons and sets the tone. But 2019 is peculiar as it projects four full moons instead of the usual three of the first quarter of the year. This third full moon is the festival of Lord Christ, the bridge and Mediator between humanity and the Father of all on this our planet Earth. Lord Christ showed the Way of Liberation or Resurrection to the Father’s House, which some esotericists call Shamballa, the City of Peace, our planetary Head center. Peace and Equilibrium have a close affinity. Peace creates a state of balanced consciousness where the most creative energies and activities are focused. True Equilibrium makes man free and true Freedom can be achieved only when man empties himself of the world, then serve the world.
God Is Love
The third major Full Moon called the Festival of Christ or Festival of Humanity because it is thru Humanity the Love of God must flow falls in June. Since 1952 some esotericists and students of the Ancient Wisdom have also called it the Festival of Goodwill and the World Invocation Day. The energy of the Love of God flows thru Lord Maitreya and His group into the hearts and minds of all who love and serve their fellow human beings of whatever colour, creed or nation. Lord Christ or Lord Maitreya, the World Teacher and Guru of all gurus is called and known as the Embodiment of Love and the Messenger of Liberation. His outstanding quality and characteristic is Love and at the Gemini Full Moon the Love of God, the spiritual essence of Solar fire reaches its highest point of expression and pours thru Him to the world. The humanity of his time knocked off this Messenger of Love and Sacrifice because they did not understand or like the message of Love and Sacrifice he proclaimed. Is it not surprising that Father’s Day is celebrated in June all over the world today. It is the day to recognize and honor the fatherly influences in our lives. God’s Presence is active in our lives as love and goodwill. Love is Life. Love is the one presence in everything and in everyone. Love and compassion are at the heart of our innermost being . Love opens our heart center and the inflow of love and life increases within all. Love is the highest nourishment for our spirit. All existence is nourished and supported by love and life. The goal of each subsequent full moon is to continue the propagation of these energies into the various spheres of human activities, may it be political, scientific, artistic, educational, religious, philosophical, or financial fields; they are are all stimulated.
The Pentecost, fifty days after the Resurrection or Easter full moon is said to signify the universal dissemination of the Christ consciousness throughout all time to the heart of every human being whether Christian, Moslem, Jewish, Hindu or the so-called Gentile. The heart chakra is opening for many across the world and this is essential to lead us from darkness into light and from the unreal nature of hate and separatism; its awakening is reflected in facts and figures from the World Health Organization (WHO).
Problems connected with the awakening of the Heart center…
Key facts from World Health organisation (WHO)
- Cardio-Vascular Disease or CVDs are the number 1 cause of death globally: more people die annually from CVDs than from any other cause.
- For instance an estimated 17.9 million people died from CVDs in 2016, representing 31% of all global deaths. Of these deaths, 85% are due to heart attack and stroke.
We conclude this 3-part series on the 2019 World spiritual festival highlighting three major centers on our planetary scheme and also in all human beings: the Head, the Third Eye and the Heart centesr. These upper three centers reflect themselves into their lower correspondences, the Base of Spine, Throat and the Solar plexus chakras or centers, encompassing the seven sacred centers in all.
From the Point of Love within the Heart of God let love stream forth into the Hearts of Men. From the Great Heart of God flows the Energy of Love.
Just as there are 7 major energy centers in the human frame there are also 7 planetary energy centers within our planet and thru which our planetary Life expresses Itself. The Planetary Head centre is known as Shamballa, the Father’s House, the center where the Will of God is Known whilst the Planetary Heart centre where the love of God is concentrated and sent out as radiant loving and healing energy constitutes the Hierarchy of Liberated Souls called by Christians, ‘the Kingdom of God’. The Planetary Throat centre is related to the fourth Kingdom, the Human kingdom. The Mineral, Plant and Animal kingdoms correspond to the lower chakras or energy centres of the Base, Sacral and Solar plexus chakras respectively.
The 3 major Planetary centres must work together in harmony for World peace, progress and prosperity of all, hence the need to link up our consciousness with the energies of the three major spiritual festivals of the new Aquarian Age in which we have just began to live in, meditating on the spiritual message of the World Prayer also called the Great invocation.
THE HEART OF GOD-
THE COMMUNITY OF SAINTS of THE HOUSE OF GOD
The Hierarchy of Liberated Souls are those who over the ages have executed the plans of God. They are the Bearers of the Light and Love of God. You can also be a citizen of this ‘household of God built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets.” Christ is the Head of this House and He has been for two thousand years the supreme Head of this Church invisible, the spiritual Hierarchy, composed of disciples of all faiths. It matters not to Him of what faith a man is attached to. He recognizes and loves not only those who call themselves Christians but also those who are not Christians as they retain their allegiance to Their Founders, whether the Buddha, Mohammed, Krishna and others. He cares not what your faith is if only the objective is Love of God and of Humanity. Christ or Lord Maitreya, the Lord of Love and Compassion is the World Healer and Saviour, the Guru of all gurus for all. He works because He is the embodied Soul of all Reality. He now works thru His Communion of Saints and Their seven groups that serve Humanity: the political, scientific, artistic, educational, religious, philosophical, and financial groups.
The Goodwill / World Invocation Day Full Moon was held on June 17, 2019 when the Sun in Gemini reflected itself in the Moon in Sagittarius honoring the Spiritual Unity in Humanity.
THE GREAT INVOCATION
The Goodwill Mantra or Meditation is a Prayer for all in
the New Era of Love & Goodwill.
From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men—
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out.
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
The full moon of Gemini on 17 June 2019 brings to a climax the three major festivals of 2019. This is the Christ Festival that channels the love of God and in this year also carries the energies of beneficial transformation. We invite all to participate this year in precipitating and cooperating in bringing in these energies to heal hearts and minds that suffer from the ravages of violence, terrorism, and the various social upheavals and unrests present in our world today.
We highlight each year the three major world festivals of the New world religion at the full Moons of Aries, Taurus and Gemini but this is a unique year replete with the positive energies of transformation. We can reboot our system from the Heart chakra to make our lives work better after we have cleaned out our act- that means purifying ourselves.
We can reboot our system with Love to make our
lives work better after we have cleaned out our act!
Just as Lord Buddha channeled Wisdom from the Mind of God, Lord Christ channeled the Love of God from the heart of God. His philosophy emphasized divine Love as the greatest force and source for good. Both Messengers enunciated love and compassion as the core of our lives, for LOVE is an intensification of LIFE and is the greatest force for good. It is when we love one another that peace will reign on Earth.
“It is when we love one another that peace will reign on Earth”.
