World leaders hail Paris climate deal as ‘major leap for mankind’

December 14, 2015

Almost 200 countries sign historic pledge to hold global temperatures to a maximum rise of 1.5C above pre-industrial levels.

A historic, legally binding climate deal that aims to hold global temperatures to a maximum rise of 1.5C above pre-industrial levels, staving off the worst effects of catastrophic global warming, has been secured.

The culmination of more than 20 years of fraught UN climate talks has seen all countries agree to reduce emissions, promise to raise $100bn a year by 2020 to help poor countries adapt their economies, and accept a new goal of zero net emissions by later this century.


The Dynamic Power of Goodwill video

December 8, 2015

by Christine Morgan, President of Lucis Trust

Goodwill is not only fundamental to right human relations, it is also a safeguard – the aura of the human kingdom needs to be permeated with goodwill to safely distribute the potencies of the New Age as part of the divine circulatory flow.  We all know what happens when incoming energies are not effectively distributed – it leads to over-simulation, congestion and disease. Goodwill offsets this by creating a network of right relationships between all members of the human family so that it functions as one healthy, integrated organ of distribution within the body of the Logos.

This video presentation was prepared for the Seven Ray Institute Conference in April 2015.


Sustainable Development Goals, the United Nations and the Libra Full Moon

October 6, 2015

A significant event in the heavens occurred during the period of the Sustainable Development Summit at UN Headquarters in New York. The full moon (with the sun in Libra) was late in the evening of Sunday, the final day of the Summit. And it was not just any full moon – popularly called a ‘Supermoon’ the moon was especially close to earth so it appeared much larger in the night sky than usual. And there was a full lunar eclipse producing a red effect on the moon. There have been only 4 full eclipses during a supermoon since 1900 – so this was an unusual astronomical event. It should not surprise us that a significant alignment in the heavens was accompanied by such a significant gathering at the UN.

From the ageless wisdom perspective humanity is in process of shifting from a culture characterised by Pisces – a culture of separation and devotion to an ideal – towards a culture characterised by Aquarius with keynotes of wholeness and sharing.

Up until now the challenge of incarnating wholeness has largely been a struggle led by pioneering individuals and fringe alternative movements. Yet now we are entering a time when the systems and structures of society and of law are consciously facing Aquarian challenges – and doing so in Libran ways.
