33-2015 -Lesson Two - The Reappearance of the Christ Continued: March 20, 2015

Last week you were given information on God's messengers i.e. the Avatars, the Messengers who come as "high initiates" and are sent to Earth when the pleas of mankind require the Presence of that Christed Being.  We were told that He/She could be of great planetary influence bringing a whole new quality of the Father into the planet and of course Gautama and Beloved Jesus are the most recognized for they exemplified the MIND OF GOD (The Buddha) and the HEART OF GOD (The Christ) - most people are unaware that these two great Souls have maintained those God qualities for humanity continually until the present day.  The Three Great Festivals are proof that they work always with mankind and during these festivals their Light shines forth into the Earth.

Easter is the First Festival that celebrates the life of Christ and especially His Resurrection and Ascension which He did publicly so that all mankind would be aware that they too, could accomplish everything that He had achieved because as He pointed out to us that we were all sons and daughters of the most High God.  Christ, the teacher of all men and the head of the spiritual Hierarchy, which He guides and directs, is recognized and the nature of God's love is emphasized.  This Festival is determined always by the date of the full moon of Spring and is the Great Western and Christian Festival.

Wesak Festival is becoming more familiar here in the West during the past fifty years but prior to that it was mainly celebrated in the East - and each year at the first Full Moon of May in a secret valley within the Himalayan Mountains, Jesus and Maitrya await the Beloved Buddha, Lord of the World at the hour of the Full Moon as He comes over the valley where people have been coming from all over the Orient following their intuition to find the "sacred valley" many find the valley and others are not so fortunate.  For us, who live in the West, we can join in the celebration by celebrating with them on the first Full Moon of May.  This is the Festival of the Buddha, the spiritual intermediary between the highest spiritual center, Shamballa, and the Hierarchy.  The Buddha is the expression of the wisdom of God, the embodiment of light and the indicator of divine purpose.  This  is the great Eastern Festival .

The Festival of Goodwill.  This is the Festival of the spirit of humanity aspiring towards God, seeking conformity with the will of God and dedicated to the expression of right human relations.  The Festival is fixed annually in relation to the full moon of June.  It is a day whereon the spiritual and divine nature of mankind is recognized.  On this Festival for two thousand years the Christ has represented humanity and has stood before the Hierarchy and in the sight of Shamballa as the God-man, the leader of His people and "the eldest in a great family of brothers" (Romans VIII:29).  Each year at this time He has preached the last sermon of the Buddha before the assembled Hierarchy.  This is, therefore, a Festival of deep invocation and appeal, of a basic aspiration towards fellowship, of human and spiritual unity; it represents the effect in human consciousness of the work of the Buddha and of the Christ.  This Festival is also observed as World Invocation Day.

NOTE:  These three Festivals are a part of the unified spiritual approach of humanity, although they are not yet sufficiently related to each other.  The time is coming when all three Festivals will be kept throughout the world and by their means a great spiritual unity will be achieved and the effects of the Great Approach, so close to us at this time, will be stabilized by the united Invocation of humanity throughout the planet.

What is the reason for Hierarchy and Humanity celebrating these Festivals at the beginning of the year?  It is a gift from God through Hierarchy to lift man with Three Forces:
The Forces of Restoration - are particularly active at the time of the Easter Festival.  These Forces emanate from the "mind of God"; they are connected with the intelligence principle in the divine nature, stimulating the human intellect.  This type of energy is peculiarly creative in nature and carries the "life which produces the birth of forms."  It is a mass energy, related to the stimulation of the mass intelligence.  It makes men think, plan, and take actions. It produces neither good now bad results but simply brings about the awakening of men's minds so that they take intelligent action.  The action itself is necessarily dependent upon the type of mind of those who respond to the forces of restoration and will be conditioned by the point in evolution, the racial and national background, tradition, religious and civilized reactions.  These forces are now active in every land, frequently producing increased initial difficulties but leading eventually to a definite reorganization of the national life.  The effects are primarily physical.  Their objective is the production of the new Earth and all the outer evidences of an inflowing new life.

The Forces of Enlightenment - are active at the time of the Wesak Festival.  These Forces emanate from the "Heart of God";  they are related to divine understanding and can reach and strengthen those who love and serve their fellowmen.  This energy transmits the second principle of divinity, love-wisdom, of which the Buddha and the Christ are the two outstanding expressions.  The forces of enlightenment initiate the education of the new world.  The first to be affected by them are the great educational movements, the forums of the people in all lands and the values which can unfold through mass communications media.   The press, publishers of world literature, speakers, writers, radio, commentators, newspaper men and social workers are all affected by these forces which stream into the minds of men.  Their effects are not yet apparent to any degree, but these movements and people are the recipients today of the energies of enlightenment; as they recognize the new emerging ideas they can channel and direct energy to influence the masses of men everywhere.

The Forces of Reconstruction - are active at the Festival of Goodwill, which is the Festival of the Christ and of Humanity.  These Forces are related to the will aspect of divinity and remain, as yet, the least powerful of the three streams of energy released during the three Festivals in 1945.   The forces of reconstruction are mainly effective in relation to nations.  The use made of these impersonal energies depends upon the quality and the nature of the recipient nation, on its measure of true enlightenment and on its point in evolution.  Nations are the expression today of the massed self-centeredness of a people and of their instinct to self-preservation.  These energies can, therefore, increase this aspect of the national life or they can increase the potency of the objectives of world unity, peace and progress which the United Nations hold before the eye of men as a true vision of the Plan.  These constructive, synthesizing energies should have the effect of transforming the theory of unity into practical experience so that the word "united" may come to hold a true significance and meaning for all nations.  Today a will-to-synthesis is slowly generating within the General Assembly of the United Nations under the inspiration of the forces of reconstruction and the Avatar of Synthesis, aided by the Christ. 

The Forces of Restoration, Enlightenment and Reconstruction contribute to a new world that will express light, love and the knowledge of God in a crescendo of revelation, producing seven great results:
1.  Power will be given to the disciples of the world and the initiates among men so that they can direct efficiently and wisely the process of rebuilding.

2.  The will-to-love will stimulate men of goodwill everywhere, gradually overcoming hatred.  The inner urge in men to live together co-operatively already exists and is subject to stimulation.

3.  The will-to-action will lead intelligent people throughout the world to inaugurate those activities which will lay the foundation for a new, better and happier world.

4. The will-to-cooperate will steadily increase. Men will desire and demand right human relations as a natural way of life.

5.  The will-to-know and to think correctly and creatively will become an outstanding characteristic of the masses.  Knowledge is the first step towards wisdom.

6.  The will-to-persist will become a human characteristic, a sublimation of the basic instinct of self-preservation.  This will lead to a persistent belief in the ideals presented by the Hierarchy and the demonstration of immortality.

7.  The will-to-organize will further a building process which will be carried forward under the direct inspiration of the Hierarchy.  The medium will be the potency of the will-to-good of the new group of world servers and the responsive goodwill of mankind. 


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 center 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 center 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.*

This Great Invocation is also given as a gift from God through the Christ and by say this mantra every day, you will bring the light of the Christ into any situation individual, communal, national or international. Remember to visualize God sending the light through the Buddha in the First Stanza and through the Christ in the Second Stanza and through the Will of God in the Third Stanza - finishing with all souls upon earth praying that the Plan of Love and Light work out - this is a very powerful invocation to Hierarchy. - MF
