The theme of the new moon meditations is strengthening the hands of the group of world servers.The meeting will include a brief talk, discusson and meditation with the goal of clarifying group thinking about the solution to major world problems.
Meditation is the primary form of service for those following a spiritual path. It is a means of cooperation and alignment with hierarchical intent. The new moon period follows upon the period of outbreathing in the rhythmic cycles of the breath; it is a time of pause wherein together we can establish a soul-mind-brain alignment. During this period we work in thought to concretize the ideas and impressions received at the time of the full moon period and undertake the sometimes difficult process of translating them into practical plans that can be of service in the world. The effect of this meditative effort is to enhance the many ways in which the “power of the one Life” and the “love of the one soul” are working out through all true servers everywhere.
The meeting will be held in the library of our offices at 120 Wall St., 24th floor; it will include a brief talk on the theme "Rebuilding the Shrine of Human Living: Paris Climate Change Conference and the Paris attacks”, group discussion and meditation.. Please call or email us prior to the meeting. We can also register you automatically for each meeting if you let us know of your interest. Meetings start at 6 pm and the door will be closed at 6:15 pm.
“It is essential that political, religious and economic problems be presented in terms of the spiritual welfare of humanity and a truer interpretation be given to the meaning of the word "spiritual". The time is long past when a line of demarcation can be drawn between the religious world and the political or the economic. The reason for the problems of our time is the fact that spiritually minded men and women have not assumed — as their spiritual duty and responsibility— the leadership of the people. They have left the power in the wrong hands and permitted the selfish and the undesirable to lead.” Alice A. Bailey, Problems of Humanity, pp. 168 –69 [adapted].
The following article will be helpful in seeding the group mind for the discussion period:
“The Paris Climate Summit is a Real Test of Humanity” – Opinion Piece by Ricken Platen, Founding President of Avaaz.
Theme and Thoughts for Discussion: Paris Climate Change Conference and Paris Attacks.
During the meeting we will focus on the role played by spiritually minded people in the Paris Climate Change Conference, and the response to the Paris terror attacks. Our key question will be : to what extent are the spiritually minded people now taking a leadership role in human affairs. We will also discuss the seedthought in the Cycle of Conferences meditation on Earth Stewardship:
“Consider specific ways and means through which the developing sense of universality will awaken humanity to its destined task as the intelligent, loving intermediary between the higher states of planetary consciousness and the sub-human kingdoms.”
