You are a Pilgrim of Spirit; You are a Hierarchy of Energy-Forms,
Moving through Worlds, Bodies and Lives, for you abide in each of the 7 sacred realms.
You are a Microcosm of the Macrocosm, learning to know yourself.
You are a Physical being, and Etheric, and Astral too.
These integral vehicles of Energy-Forms continue into your Lower Mind,
Then through the Higher Mental guided by your Intuitional.
Finally, all of these are, as is all of Creation, made into one.
For you are guided by, inspired by and loved by
Your spark of the Divine, Your Monad, your Higher Self, your one of the One.
Yes, you are a Monad of Life-Consciousness-Spirit travelling through Space-Time.
Your origins are as far beyond your remembering,
As your future is more glorious than you may imagine.
You began as an unself-conscious spark of the Divine, and
You will become in time a fully conscious Co-Creator of Creation.
You will lift yourself and one another up, by learning,
For it is by choice, through trial and error, that you grow.
Being guided by the one Immutable Law, of cause and effect, by Karma,
You will to learn to choose what is good and true, and to let go of the rest.
You will learn to know yourself, and so equally know this Universe too.
You will journey with countless other life-forms,
Who just like you are on this sacred path of Self-Becoming,
Formed, Guided and Inspired by the Self-Luminous Hierarchy of Love.
Your journey is precious, and so you will never walk alone.
For many have come this way before you…and they wait.
They range from beings beyond imagining, whose nature is far removed
From these human trials and tribulations.
To those who work, in forms and beyond forms,
Tirelessly striving/serving to heal by love.
They wait for you, watch over you, care for you.
Though you must do “the work”, of lifting your veil of doubt and fear
And so come by your own self-becoming to the everlasting Truth,
They do what they can to help, lifting spirits, sending comfort and hope.
And when needed, an emissary will come to remind one and all,
To show “the way”, to lead you back to the sacred path of a
Freer Mind, Unconditional Love and a Centered Will.
Among all the countless beings who have come this way before, today we celebrate and honor one of our “own”. For today is the Day of the Buddha, today we bow our heads and honor the first of our Kind. For just as you must someday too, the Buddha was the first, he is the "Self-Awakened One". He threw off the shackles of unconsciousness to become a complete human…what is known in the Ancient Wisdom as a Jivanmukta…a freed Monad.
He is no longer bound by the Law of Karma, he has made his final choice...
And he chose to wait…he chose to wait for all of you. For this is the Way, this is the Truth...this is Love.
He stands now, at the portal of self-transcendence,
He will wait for each of you to make your way.
For this is the Great Sacrifice, this is Sacred Love.
He waits for you to be fully human,
He waits for you to be the Self-Awakened too.
We celebrate the Buddha today because it is said the he was born at the Full Moon of Taurus, achieved enlightenment at another Full Moon of Taurus, and finally left his physical form at another. His experience and story illustrates one of the fundamental truths you must master, you are an Immortal moving through Worlds, Forms and Lives that are mortal and impermanent.
Your principle pain arises from “attachment”, from the desire to continue and hold to this or that “thing”, whether it be an object, an experience, a loved one, or even your very own life…you suffer because you have forgotten…You are an Immortal Spirit moving through these forms of manifestation, but none of these can hold you forever, nothing can or will last forever in these mortal realms. You are Spirit, you are here to grow, and there is no “container” that can ever be enough, there is nothing that can hold forever the Light-Truth-Love that abides within you.
What you must do, what you have always done, is to simply walk on. You are here to be what you are, Life-Consciousness-Spirit thrilling through countless forms of self-becoming, seeking, stretching, and growing forever and ever.
You should celebrate each encounter with your world and with one another. Marvel at the Sun setting…but it will end. And so, you will turn and watch as your Star rises again at the dawn. When in the physical, live in Beauty by moving through Life by Love. Know that whether you are with someone for a wonderful afternoon, or for many, many years of richly lived lives…it too will end. And it will hurt, as it must, but you will come to know that this pain is the mirrored reflection of the joy you shared, and will continue to share again and again too.
Celebrate your Spirit in Motion, moving from form to form, growing and becoming as you move ever closer to the moment of true freedom and spiritual grace. Freed from doubt, free of fear, you understand your destiny.
Today/tonight celebrations will held around the world, to honor one who came before us, but one who is just like you and me…The teachers do not come to start a religion, that is for those who come after. The teachers do not come and say “pray to me”. Every true Teacher comes in order to quite profoundly yet simply say: “Do as I have done, follow the path that is within you, listen to the whispers of your own Higher Self who is singing the same songs I have sung to you. Follow this path and you will be welcomed home too.”
To all who seek, an answer will come.
To all who serve, a door will open.
Join with those who seek by serving, in celebration of the truth of your destiny and the example of the one who came before, and who waits until all have made their way home too. Hold the Great Invocation in your Mind, Heart and Will as you repeat the promise made of a better world to be:
THE GREAT INVOCATION
From the point of light within the Mind of God
Let Light stream forth into our minds
Let LIGHT descend on Earth.
From the point of love within the Heart of God
Let Love stream forth into our hearts
May LOVE increase on Earth.
From the center where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide our wills
The PURPOSE which the masters know and serve.
From the center which we call Humanity
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.
