Meditation Focus ~ Overview

SouledOut's Meditation Focus theme for the 2015–2017 annual cycles culminates on the mountaintop of Capricorn as we embody our awareness of the zodiacal energies of the Lighted Way relating to Cosmic Freedom Inaugurates Planetary Liberation.

Annually, we prepare now to align with the cycle's planetary hierarchical meditation beginning each year at the December Solstice, in preparation for the outpouring of spiritual energies at the upcoming Wesak event.

Throughout the current lunar cycle surrounding the full moon during Capricorn, we ask all in our subjective group, according to your inspiration, to utilize the materials presented here as seeds for the daily meditation ritual.

Following the cycle's new moon, we begin on Friday, December 30 to focus on WeCycle Wisdom our monthly alignment around the full moon festival during Capricorn.

2017 Capricorn Meditation Theme

 

Cosmically Aligned, We Embrace
The Eternal Rhythm of the Ages,
The Rhythm of the Sages

 

"What do we identify as?" is the conscious choice we each make, every day. We practice identification with the highest aspect in all and actively express this, in our service in the world.

When the shift of our consciousness is away from identifying with the lower forms of experience into that of identification as the real and true Self, the ability to tread the middle way between the pairs of opposites and the capacity to use the intuition are expressions of this identification.

The resolution of dualities takes place when the soul, the true spiritual self, no longer identifies itself with either of the opposites, but stands free upon this middle way; the disciple then sees the "lighted Way ahead," along which he learns to go without being drawn into the glamorous worlds which stretch on either hand. He travels straight towards his goal. (1)

Eventually each human light masters the third initiation, mounting the cardinal cross. For all disciples having previously passed this initiation and aspirants in preparation for it, each and every day there is call to take or retake the initiatory tests in which we prove our capacity to demonstrate the quality of Soul in our service. We now resolve to do so, ever more earnestly and consistently than before.

From the perspective of our planet, at this time in evolution we are becoming cognizant of the third Great Approach, "... which will bring the new revelation, with its realised consequences, of a new heaven and a new earth." (2) Humanity's identification is called to further alignment with the Divine.

The work starts at Individualisation, and continues through the two final stages of Initiation and Identification. These three stages mark the progress of the soul consciousness from that of identification with the form to that of identification with the Self. These three words ~ individualization, initiation and identification, ~ cover the whole process of man's career from the time he emerges into the human kingdom till he passes out of it at the third initiation, and functions freely in the fifth kingdom, the kingdom of God. (3)

The third initiation, the Transfiguration, marks the fusing of soul and personality.

Now at the new year we may be reminded of the words of the Christ, who "... said, when on Earth: 'I and my Father are One,' and in these words epitomised His entire message. I, the individual, through initiation, am identified with Deity." (4)

2015 - 2017 Meditation Theme ~ Annual Cycle

2015's March equinox initiated our journey for the spiritual year, as we share now in yet a higher alignment to Purpose for our service for the annual cycle.

As each individual unit takes responsibility for applying their highest dedication to Purpose, one's life becomes the Path, itself. We may look to the Cosmic Path of Higher Evolution to further understand our connection to the Life More Abundant.

The revealed quality of Synthesis relates largely to the Life aspect, that which enlivens all forms. Synthesis is. (5) This is so, according to the Essential Divinity of all life. Recognizing this truth, we are called to surrender ~ to be the Divine Path through the sacrifice of all that is extraneous.

Becoming the Path itself refers to our construction of the connecting channel between the outer, concrete world and the inner planes of the abstract ideal (6), linking us to the larger, cosmic perspective. This is an outgrowth of the ongoing sacrifice we make in service to the One.

The concept of Being the Path is similarly expressed in the words of the Esoteric Catechism pledge of the disciple, affirming the sacrifice made by the soul: "I am the Cross, I am the Way; I tread upon the work I do." (7)

From the standpoint of our planetary life, at this time in evolution we are inaugurating the third Great Approach, "... which will bring the new revelation, with its realised consequences, of a new heaven and a new earth." (8)

Capricorn Full Moon Festival

Capricorn's mountaintop portends our identification with the highest light beyond the soul, that of the monad, the father aspect in the trinity of Father ~ Will, Mother ~ Matter, and Son ~ Soul.

The Lord of Shamballa and His Helpers have had to wait until at least the dim outlines of the Plan had penetrated through into the consciousness of the race; this is beginning to happen with increasing frequency, and from day to day more and more intelligent men and women are coming (or are being brought) into touch with the emerging ideas of the Hierarchy. We can look, therefore, for the steady appearance, gradually and cautiously applied, of the will energy of the highest centre (Shamballa) which is to be found upon our planet. This centre corresponds to the monadic centre which makes its power felt in the consciousness of the disciple who is ready for the third initiation. Once the second initiation has been taken, the watching Hierarchy can begin to note the constant reorientation of the soul towards the monad, and the attractive power of that highest aspect over the initiate. Today, so many members of the human family ~ in incarnation or out of incarnation ~ have taken the first two initiations that the attention of Shamballa is being increasingly turned to humanity, via the Hierarchy, whilst simultaneously the thoughts of men are being turned to the Plan, to the use of the will in direction and guidance, and to the nature of dynamic force. (9)

In conjunction with our Weekly Meditation Focus being shared on WeCycle Wisdom, these various links also expand upon the topics featured on this overview.

Avatars The Doctrine of the Coming One is linked to the teaching of every great religion, and at the close of this age a Cosmic Avatar is impressing to appear as a Divine Embodiment.

The Buddha and the Christ As they blend, the Love and the Wisdom of these two great teachers unite east and west, bringing enlightened alignment to those world servers who recognize this union.

Cosmic Identification Through the practice of identification with the Divine Life itself, we may begin to comprehend more fully the nature of Spirit.

The Life That which lies behind and synthesizes spirit, soul and form

Monadic Consciousness We attune to our Monadic essence ~ "We are THAT and THAT are we."

Principle of Decision We align our choices to our Perception of the Plan, Participation in the Purpose, and the Prevention of Evil. (10)

Principle of Essential Divinity Essential Divinity is the inherent quality underlying the Life aspect ~ all that is.

Principle of Unanimity In one's life expression there comes a time when the unity and essential oneness underlying the dualities of physical plane life can be recognized and shared. The quality of this essential oneness has been termed "Unanimity."

The Spirit of Sacrifice Sacrifice essentially means, to make holy. This is the hallmark of all world servers.

The Third Great Approach Cosmic Identification is an expression of this definitive event, taking place in present time.

As aspirants, we now consciously realign with the Divine Plan ~ the unfolding Purpose of the One Life. Through embodiment of the Principle of Decision, we then become steadier in our service expression.

Electric fire relates to the Will aspect of deity and manifests as Unity of Spirit. As Watchers of the Dawn we are called to Wield this force by aligning with and directing the incoming flow of energies to reveal the Synthesis of Life Itself. All are valuable in this endeavor.

Direction and Purpose demonstrate Will, for the Principle of Decision guides our choices and actions providing an opportunity to advance goodwill and right human relations.

As each individual unit takes responsibility for applying their highest alignment to Purpose, one's life becomes the Path, itself. This is an outgrowth of the ongoing sacrifice we make in service to the One.

Our Monadic essence joins with the planetary Hierarchy to approach Shamballa. There is a broadening of inclusiveness, as the bridge from Heart to Head is now emphasized.

All we know, we need to apply now.

Cosmic Freedom Inaugurates Planetary Liberation

Cosmically Aligned, We Embrace
The Eternal Rhythm of the Ages,
The Rhythm of the Sages

 

We link up with people of goodwill everywhere, as part of the united group channel through which the spiritual forces can become available.

Affirming this channel, "We stand poised united as One Soul with our Spiritual Hierarchy." We hold the focus.

We now visualize and become the Chalice we have together created, as a grid of light all over the earth connecting the light of every Lightworker and each sacred energy vortex. This network serves as a conduit through which the heavenly blessings may flow through every one of us and to the planet Earth.

When we have achieved this ...

We rise as one, seeking the light. In response, the great gateway that is Capricorn swings open wide and this Light pours into and through us.

We know the energy of Capricorn signals a cycle of effort. Before us, the mountain ... and we begin to climb.

We are ascending on a channel of pure Love.

We sense a love far beyond personal attachment, one of Love and Service for all of Humanity. In this pure Love we subdue matter to Divine Use and Purpose, demonstrating Christ consciousness.

The Love illumines us and we clearly see within, the integrated personality fused with the Light of the Soul. In an act of focused Will we lift the Soul unto the One Soul, and then unto the Light of Life itself.

Monadic consciousness comes now alive within us. We see the world and its many realms, anew.

Inspired by Love and guided by our Spiritual Hierarchy, our service is further revealed. We work as the Transmitting Will, stepping down the energies made available by Divinity.

Bathed in Divine Light, we stand at the mountaintop with our Spiritual Hierarchy. In this most high place, we see the golden threads of our evolutionary progress revealing our past work, our present Service and our Divine Destiny.

Together, we are a brilliant orb of light that shines out in all directions. So potent is the Light that it shines far beyond our solar system, out of the Milky Way galaxy, and into the cosmos. We sense that our united connection reaches deep into the universe.

It's up to us to radiate The Glory of The One. Whatever we choose to do will have great and far-reaching consequences ~ both here on Earth and throughout the universe.

 

The truth of our human story ~
The Christ in us ~ The Hope of Glory

 

As we emerge from meditation, we are joined in this stream by Light workers everywhere on the planet and from on high. With focused mind, heart and will, together we say ...

 

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.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
Let LIGHT and LOVE and POWER
restore the Planet Earth!

- adapted version (11)

 

We now continue to hold the high space throughout this most auspicious phase of the full moon, an important time to still the mind and maintain inner peace, always a time of spiritual retreat and contact.

Capricorn Information Synthesis

 

The Light of Capricorn: The Light of Initiation

This is the light which clears the way to the mountain top,
and produces transfiguration, thus revealing the rising sun. (12)

Capricorn Zodiacal Deity Symbolized by the Mountain, Capricorn awakens us to the higher frequency of spirit and the nonform. "In Capricorn we have the triumph of matter; it reaches its densest and most concrete expression; but this triumph is followed by that of spirit. There is full expression of the earthly nature in Capricorn, but also immense spiritual possibilities." (13) Initiation is the result of this process.

December Solstice The Winter Solstice occurs each year on December 21. At this time each year the Christ energy enters the Earth, infusing our world with the ideal of perfection and the desire for a re-merging with the One. As the light returns, we may join the Spiritual Hierarchy in beginning their meditation to prepare for the coming Wesak.

Capricorn Labor of Hercules "The light of life must now shine forth within a world of dark," begins Labor X of Hercules in Capricorn, in which Hercules slays Cerberus, guardian of Hades. Freedom, silence, and impersonality mark the Capricorn challenge to climb the mountain and then descend into hell.

New Group of World Servers Members of this group desire to uplift, teach and help others. They are identified by the selflessness of their service to the world and lack of personal ambition, coupled with a willingness to work behind the scenes without recognition.

The Spiritual Kingdom Manifests We approach the Hierarchy and as this occurs, Humanity evolves into the Spiritual Kingdom.

Freedom and the Initiations In our evolution humanity embraces ever more fully the concept and the quality of freedom, as we become soul-infused and eventually liberated from the restrictions of physical plane existence.

One with The Divine When the Planetary Logos connects with the Solar Logos, Shamballa ~ or the Will of God ~ is their point of union. (14) We are called to connect there with Them, and in this way to embrace the Plan of Love and Light.

Yoga of Synthesis As we focus on the Oneness of All, we are able to express the self in light of the larger perspective and thereby assist in bringing through the Divine Plan and Purpose.

The Night Sky During each lunar cycle the Moon, waxing and waning, journeys through the zodiac. It partners with and enlivens the sparkling stars and glowing planets along the way. As the Moon grows in the light provided by our Sun, we too grow in the light of our Soul. Moon Phases

Lunar Theme: Aspirations & Authenticity "This December 29, 2016 (Dec 28 MST) New Moon resides amongst the stars of the Zen Archer ... conjoining retrograde Mercury within a degree ... just as Uranus stations to complete its retrograde. It is also allied in strength with Mars and Neptune, which lie amongst the flowing waters of the progressive humanitarian waterbearer ... Our opportunity as we enter and move into the last quarter of this cycle is to recognize that the sociopolitical structures we have created in our lives are the solidification of ideologies we began to formulate starting in 1989. Those structures have served their purpose and now impose limits that do not support our changing ideologies. Thus we begin a several year period of dissolving those structures. At a personal level, it brings impetus to shed an old mold of self and the outdated images we hold of ourselves and for our lives built around our antiquated ideologies ..." - Nick Fiorenza gives insights to this lunar cycle, which begins Dec 28, 10:53 pm PST and ends Jan 27, 4:07 pm PST.

Navigating with Orion
Locate Sirius and Betelgeuse. Meditating on these two
stars can aid in the service of those who are spiritually attuned.
The three belt stars of Orion represent the Three Wise Men.

The New Year’s Star ~ Sirius
This star is instrumental in humanity's creation,
as well as in the establishment of our planet's
guiding forces and the mysteries of initiation. Highest
at midnight, its emanations stimulate our crown chakra.

Preparation for Participation in This Meditation Focus

If possible, we suggest being in meditation at the exact time of the full moon. For this meditation, and as each is able to join the world group at the time of the full moon (Thursday, January 12 at 3:34 am PST / 11:34 UT), it's suggested to begin meditating earlier so to be in deep meditation at the exact time, and then continue for as long as you feel compelled.

We at SouledOut.org will align for this global meditation the evening of Wednesday, January 11 at 9:00 pm PST (05:00 UT Thursday, January 12) ~ and all who wish to join in at this time are invited to do so.

We also encourage utilizing SouledOut.org's Global Meditation in group formation at the exact time of the full moon, and whenever possible during this festival's safeguarding cycle.

If you are unable to join us at this time, choose a time within 12 hours before or after to align with these energies and participate in this global meditation.

Prior to your meditation take the needed time to create a sacred space and spiritually align your energies.

Consider what is the appropriate way to join in this meditation ... you may wish to participate in group formation on the physical plane as well as on the inner planes. Whether or not you choose to be "alone" on the physical, know you are uniting with many others who also are attuning to the energies available at this Global Festival, and that this group focus creates a powerful channel for our meditation service to be potent and effective.

The Full Moon Festivals Culminate over a Five-Day Period ...

Our meditation focus beginning at the new moon leads into the two days of preparation immediately preceding the full moon. These are to be dedicated to spiritual reflection and detachment from everyday concerns, as each prepares to become a vessel for the energies of light and love they will receive and channel. At this time we hold the attitude of dedication and service, and seek to assume that attitude of receptivity to that which our soul will impart which will make us of spiritual use.

The day of the full moon itself is the day of safeguarding, one of inner peace and silence during which we attempt to contact and consciously hold the energies for the rest of humanity. We will not formulate for ourselves what will happen, nor will we look for results or tangible effects. While one may not observe the exact moment when the moon is full, it's important to find some quiet time to reflect alone or use this opportunity to meditate with others of like mind and focus.

The two succeeding days are called the days of distribution. We now turn the attention outwards, away from ourselves, and our efforts are to pass on the spiritual energies that have been contacted. We assist these spiritual energies, transformed into goodwill, in flowing to where there is greatest need.

We now continue to hold the high space throughout this most auspicious day of the full moon, an important time to still the mind and maintain inner peace, a time of spiritual retreat and contact. If you wish, feel free to continue use of this meditation for the entire month of Capricorn.

The Full Moon Cycle We Are Observing ...

From new moon to new moon, Thursday, December 29, 2016 through Friday, January 27, 2017.

Cardinal Cross According to Alice A. Bailey, in connection with humanity, Capricorn is the "sign of importance" on the Cardinal Cross. (16)

The Demonstrated Existence of Our Spiritual Hierarchy As the externalization of the Hierarchy manifests on behalf of planet earth, we are able to recognize and appreciate the masters who grace our world through their service to humanity and to all the kingdoms of nature.s

The Christ Light In many lands and civilizations this time of year has been associated with the coming of a Sun-God to save the world ~ bringing light and fruitfulness to the earth, and bringing hope to humanity. (17) This energy is honored and recognized by many spiritual traditions and is not uniquely Christian. Christ, the son of God, indeed did come to us in the dark of the year and initiated a new era, wherein light was to be the distinguishing note: "I am the light, I am the way." This Lighted Way is the illumined path to the Divine and the means to evolve right human relations.

One with The Divine When the Planetary Logos connects with the Solar Logos, Shamballa ~ or the Will of God ~ is their point of union. (18) We are called to connect there with Them, and in this way to embrace the Plan of Love and Light.

The Lighted Way The entire zodiac can be approached and understood from the angle of light ~ the inner light, soul light ~ and its unfolding, increasing radiance is the manifestation of our divine nature. (19)
