A Time of Expectancy
For centuries, the reappearance of an Avatar has been anticipated by the faithful worldwide - by Christians, and by those who look for the Maitreya, the Boddhisattva, the Messiah and the Imam Mahdi. This Teacher will be one who identifies with human struggle, understands these times completely and knows the depth and intricacies of the human heart. He or she will come for all humanity.
The great teachers of the past have led humanity further into the light, bringing revelation to their time. The coming World Teacher will bring revelation which speaks to this time, using the world communications systems at His disposal, that “every eye shall see and every ear shall hear”.
We are witnessing a flowering of the human spirit. Humanity itself is preparing the way for the Coming One by instituting changes within all aspects of human life. Spiritual recognition and application is the great need today in preparation for this reappearance.
The World Teacher will come to restore man’s faith in God’s love, in the livingness of our shared divinity and in the close and unbreakable relationship of the peoples of this world.
A great and ancient prayer has been given to humanity to help prepare the way. It is a world prayer of extraordinary potency. Energy follows and conforms itself to thought. Through daily use and distribution of the Great Invocation, we aid this preparatory work and unite as One Humanity. All are asked to contribute their energy and light in this service to the world.
THE GREAT INVOCATION*
From the point of Light within the mind of God
Let light stream forth into human minds
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into human hearts
May the Coming One return to Earth.
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide all little human wills
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the centre which we call the human race
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 IS A SLIGHTLY ADAPTED WORDING OF THE GREAT INVOCATION. MEN AND WOMEN OF GOODWILL THROUGHOUT THE WORLD ARE USING THIS INVOCATION IN THEIR OWN LANGUAGE. WILL YOU JOIN THEM IN USING THE INVOCATION EVERY DAY - WITH THOUGHT AND DEDICATION?
