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 cycle 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 and will include an exploration on the theme Peace, Right Relations and Togetherness in these Testing Times, followed by group discussion and meditation. Please call or email us if you will be attending, or contribute your thoughts prior to the meeting we will share them with the group when possible.
Theme: Peace, Right Relations and Togetherness in these
The Virgo New Moon takes place the day before the United Nations’ International Day of Peace, September 21, with the focus: Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All. On this Day and the following weekend, hundreds of thousands of people of goodwill around the world will be turning their attention to the UN’s TOGETHER Initiative, promoting respect, safety and dignity for everyone forced to flee their homes in search of a better life. We can use the opportunity of this New Moon meeting to contribute to the International Day of Peace by helping build a thought-form of solution; accepting the testing times created by the psychological state of the nations as they exist today and clarifying our thinking about Peace, Right Relations and Togetherness.
Unity, peace and security will come through the recognition—intelligently assessed—of the evils which have led to the present world situation, and then through the taking of those wise, compassionate and understanding steps which will lead to the establishing of right human relations, to the substitution of cooperation for the present competitive system, and by the education of the masses in every land as to the nature of true goodwill and its hitherto unused potency. Alice Bailey, Problems of Humanity, p. 171
Question for reflection and discussion:
During these troubling times what signs, if any, can be seen to suggest that nations are maturing psychologically and spiritually, making progress towards the culture of peace and right relations more possible than at any other time?
What contribution can the world esoteric community make to International Day of Peace?
