Working to Heal Humanity

A growing number of people, from all walks of life, are familiar with the healing influence of Divine energy. So many of our present day ills stem from blocking the natural flow of energy from our higher natures, from the God within. The need to re-connect, to re-create the circuit through which Soul energy can flow is a crucial step in the healing process.

What is true for the individual is equally true for humanity as a whole. Many of the problems that we face in the world exist because we have distorted or blocked the divine circulatory flow from our higher, spiritual nature. Humanity today needs to strengthen this inner connection to enable the Soul energies of light and love to qualify human thought, activity and relationship. Our separative thinking has led us to lose sight of the reality of inner connectedness. The split between humankind's spiritual essence and its outer form has generated many forms of disease. Not only does it cause physical disease, but also psychological disturbance. The effects of this split can be seen too in other forms of disease such as the pollution and the environmental degradation that threaten so much of life on earth.

How can we strengthen the flow of Soul energy into humanity?

One initiative that is working to establish this re-connection, and which involves tens of thousands of people throughout the world is Triangles. Triangles is an idea for using techniques of meditation and visualisation to create a unifying web of light and goodwill through which spiritual energy can flow into human minds and hearts. People link each day in thought in threes, visualising each person as a point of light and feeling goodwill flowing between them. Having linked up in this way, light and love are visualised pouring into the triangle, energising it, vitalising it until it becomes a triangle of scintillating brilliance. The energy is then released, directed out from each point of the triangle as light and goodwill, to flow across the network of triangles being created by people around the world.

The Triangles service is challenging, yet really quite simple – a few minutes dedicated thought each day. It is not necessary to be physically present with your two co-workers or to synchronise the timing of the link.

Triangles workers use the Great Invocation to focus their appeal for light, love and spiritual direction. The Great Invocation voices in a simple and direct way humanity's need for light on its path, love in its relationships and the spiritual will to work for the good of the whole. The work is an act of service, a service to humanity and a service to the evolutionary process working out on our planet.

But why form triangles? A triangle is a powerful symbol of the divine and the idea of the trinity lies at the heart of many spiritual traditions. It is an archetypal form, a basic energy pattern within the universe. The triangle acts as a focus for spiritual energy and energies, for energies emanating from the Soul. Triangles seeks to re-connect humanity to its Soul so that the healing energies of light and love can flow into the world, bringing goodwill and enlightened thought to bear upon world problems, healing divisions and fostering right human relations.

The Great Invocation

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 beauty and strength of this invocation lies in its simplicity, and in the expression of certain truths which all people innately and normally accept. Many religions believe in a World Teacher, known under such names as the Lord Maitreya, Krishna, Imam Mahdi and the Messiah, and these terms are used in some Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim and Jewish versions of the Great Invocation.
