Earth Day—Earth, Humanity’s ‘Shadow’

Earth Day—Earth,  Humanity’s ‘Shadow’

Sun enters Taurus Thursday, Saturday’s a new moon and Sunday’s Earth Day with Mercury and Uranus connecting Aries (all things new). A message is available for humanity concerning the Earth (a conscious Being) concerning our present future, which we, World Servers, must create. Mercury (Raphael and Hermes, the Healers) will help. The Great Invocation, the great Mantram of Direction for Humanity, was given at the 1945 June full moon festival (after WW II).

Full Moon & Farewell to a Poet

Full Moon & Farewell to a Poet

Simultaneous (Jewish, Catholic, Esoteric astrological) religious and spiritual festivals occur this weekend, creating within humanity coordinated, synchronized and harmonized prayers to God. Concurrent religious festivals form the foundation of the Aquarian new world religion. We are at the end of Holy Week, leading to Easter Sunday’s Resurrection Festival.

Holy Thursday night is the Last Supper followed by our Lord’s (Pisces World Teacher) betrayal by Judas (his role to play) for 30 pieces of silver.

I suppose there’s nothing wrong with tossing yourself a little nod of approval every now and then. That seems to be the case this week as the City of Santa Cruz gears up for its official Proclamation Day. For those of you who have attended events where a proclamation from the city’s mayor was in order, you already know much of the script features one word repeatedly—whereas.

What would get you to do more business in Downtown Santa Cruz?

What would get you to do  more business in Downtown Santa Cruz?

Just lower prices I think. More advertising. I do try to shop locally as much as possible but sometimes the price is too high. It's understandable as to why they are what they are, but lower prices would help a lot.

Gemini Festival of Goodwill, World Invocation Day

This entire week is a preparation by the New Group of World Servers (NGWS) for the June full moon (Tuesday) and to welcome the Forces of Reconstruction, great outer planetary forces streaming into the Earth at the Gemini Solar Festival. The Gemini Festival at the June full moon is called the Festival of Goodwill and World Invocation Day (recitation of the Great Invocation, the mantram of direction for humanity, hourly around the world). During the (12 degrees) Gemini festival, the Wesak blessing of the will-to-good is released and radiated (Gemini distributes) to humanity. When the will-to-good is received, humanity is then able to radiate goodwill to each other and to the kingdoms. The Gemini Festival is the third of the Three Spring Festivals (triangle of Force), setting the spiritual template and resources for Earth for the rest of the year (‘til next spring). This festival recognizes the true spirit of humanity—aspiring toward and seeking the will of God, dedicated to right human relation. At the full moon, the Divine nature of humanity is recognized. Christ stands with humanity, leader of his people, “the Eldest in a great family of brothers” (Romans VIII, 29.) Each year at the Gemini festival, Christ preaches the last sermon of Buddha, His brother, a sermon calling forth human and spiritual unity, represented by an outflow of love (work of the Christ) and wisdom (work of the Buddha). The forces of reconstruction stream in during the Festival, ushering in an era of pronounced creative activity, rebuilding the tangible world on new creative lines. This necessitates the total destruction of the old forms no longer useful for the new world era. Everyone is invited. Join us everyone for this Festival of Goodwill by reciting the Great Invocation.
