Libra Festival Meditation
2016 Libra Festival Global Meditation ~ Audio
Souledout.org's Meditation Focus theme for 2016 progresses during the Libra full moon cycle. We are continuing to explore Cosmic Freedom Inaugurates Planetary Liberation.
During the 2016 spring festival cycle, we attuned to the inflow of energies through the Spiritual Kingdom and aligned in this focus. Now, as we continue through the year, we are endeavoring to assimilate the new energies and to integrate these into our service in the world.
We invite all to participate as we continue through the annual cycle, to embody our awareness of the zodiacal energies of the Lighted Way.
Following the cycle's new moon, we begin on Saturday, October 1 each week to share on WeCycle Wisdom a suggested topic for contemplation over the week ahead.
Throughout the current lunar cycle surrounding the full moon during Libra, we ask all in our subjective group, according to your inspiration, to utilize the materials presented here as seeds for the daily meditation ritual.

Cosmically Aligned, We Embrace
For the 2016 Libra Festival, we continue with this invocation as our spiritual focus mantram.
Throughout this month of the Libra lunar cycle, may we take the time to create a sacred space as all are asked to join in service on the inner planes to bring balance to the present challenges in our world.
This emphasis on Peace provides the opportunity to serve the One Life we all share, as we pursue the Libran Way of Balance.
As aspirants and disciples, in present time we consciously realign with the Divine Plan ~ the unfolding Purpose of the One Life. Through application of the Principle of Decision and our experience in the world of expression, we are becoming increasingly steady 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.
In that we, as the worldwide group, have envisioned a grid of light over all the Earth that connects the light of every Lightworker and each sacred energy vortex, together we form this Chalice ~ the Holy Grail prepared to assist in the grounding of spiritual energies on behalf of the One Life.
As we explore our relationship with Deity, we may further engender the global pursuit of Goodwill and Right Human Relations. Economic stability, food, fuel, clothing, medical expertise and the needed supplies for everyone in all nations are details of the Plan to be brought about through our dedicated service, as we work together towards harmony and peace.

2016 Meditation Theme ~ Annual Cycle
The March equinox initiated our journey for the spiritual year, as we share now during Libra in yet a higher alignment to Purpose in our service for the annual cycle.
We may presently reflect now upon what was seeded six months ago at the beginning of the spiritual year, when the Sun moved into the inaugural sign Aries and the 2016 spring festival season.
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.
Besides being integral to Path I of Earth Service, Libra also is closely involved with Cosmic Path II ~ the Path of Magnetic Work. We're told that energy enters our system from an unknown source, via Gemini, and that Libra, the Balances, is involved. On the Path of Magnetic Work are combined two blended influences, those of Gemini and Libra. (4)
The revealed quality of Synthesis relates largely to the Life aspect, that which enlivens all forms. Synthesis is. (6) 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 (7), 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." (8)
From the standpoint of our planetary life, at this time in evolution we are experiencing the third Great Approach, "... which will bring the new revelation, with its realised consequences, of a new heaven and a new earth." (9)

We choose the way which leads between the two great lines of force. (10)
Equity and equilibrium are qualities brought about through the Light of Libra. We can now reach further balance towards achieving monadic impression through the application of Wisdom ~ knowledge gained through experience and implemented with love. (11) This practice describes the narrow, razor-edged path between the pairs of opposites, as is associated with Libra.
Libra is the point of balance in the zodiac, the place where neither spirit nor matter dominates. During this unfolding lunar cycle culminating with the full moon of Libra~Aries, we may develop the practice of choosing the Way which leads between the two great lines of force, thereby allowing the scales of justice to come into balance.
Each year as we round the cornerstone of the autumn equinox, seeds of consciousness are emerging deep within and new potential is being enlivened.
We are called now to assist in the Spiritual Hierarchy's task of setting an example for humanity ~ acting "as if" we are members of the Spiritual Kingdom, to which we aspire.

Cosmic Freedom Inaugurates Planetary Liberation
Cosmically Aligned, We Embrace
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 created together 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 each and every one of us and to the planet Earth.
When we have achieved this ...
Our Spiritual evolution
As we emerge from meditation, with focused mind, heart and will, we dynamically intone The Great Invocation, and together we say ...
The Great Invocation
the point of light within the Mind of God
the point of love within the Heart of God
From the center where the Will of God is known
From the center which we call Humanity
- adapted version (12)
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.

Libra ~ The Light that Moves to Rest
is the light that oscillates until a point of balance is achieved.
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. (14)
Libra Zodiacal Deity Symbolized by the Balance, Libra represents the full blossoming of material manifestation. This is the sign of blending the opposites and of equilibrium, which we seek through crises to find the right alignment. The effect of this synthesis is harmony, developing our powers of discrimination, and bringing into balance the two-sided forces of duality.
Balance~The Libran Way On the Cardinal Cross, Libra brings order, rhythm, and eventually equilibrium. Libra governs the Way to the Middle, the middle path. The energy of Libra helps us move from the weighing of opposites, judgement, to the place of understanding as the point of balance. In seeking and locating this position, the Divine Life is further revealed and from this perspective all things can be seen in a new light.
Yoga of Synthesis As we identify with the Oneness of All, we are able to express the self in light of this larger orientation and thereby assist in serving as co-creators of the Divine Plan and Purpose.
5 Forces Affecting Evolution These cosmic and systemic causes are responsible for the present crisis and difficult situation in the world.
Path to Peace Alice Bailey presents three Principles as the prerequisites for engendering Peace.
Peace Begins Inside From this Truth we cannot hide!
Harmony Through Synthesis and Joy One wise manner of increasing Peace in our world is through the application of Joy in all facets of life.
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: Expect the Unexpected & The Right Use of Will "This October 1, 2016 (Sept 30 MST) New Moon occurs slightly past Jupiter ... nesting exactly between Zaniah [right use of personal will] and Porrima of Virgo [premonition, foresight, timing and guidance] [Map] ... Jupiter is of higher law, that is, natural law over man-made laws that violate fundamental human rights. The Jupiter-Makemake synthesis ... impels a reestablishment of natural law over man-made oligarchical powers that manipulate and control freedom and justice ... The New Moon also conjoins the distant planet 2010 GB174 ... a member of what I call The Transcultural Planets .. perhaps adding somewhat of a wildcard dynamic to this lunar cycle ..." - Nick Fiorenza gives insights to this lunar cycle, which begins Sept 30, 5:11 pm PDT and ends Oct 30, 10:38 am PDT.
Note: This New Moon is also a rare "Black Moon" aka Ebony Moon (second new moon in a calendar month). Many Earth-based traditions see a black moon as a time that brings amplified power to intentional practices.

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, it is suggested to begin meditating earlier so as to utilize SouledOut's Libra Festival Audio Meditation and to be in deep meditation at the exact time, and then continue for as long as you feel compelled.
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 plane, 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.
As you wish, feel free to continue use of this meditation for the entire month of the Libra full moon cycle.
From the new moon to new moon, Saturday, October 1 through Sunday, October 30, 2016.

Libra Synthesis Supplementary links for further understanding
Divine Truths of Deity These basic truths are commonly held by all the world's revealed religions.
Secret of Creation Through the steadfast pursuit of Divine Identification, the Secret of Creation is revealed.
Libra Labor of Hercules The seventh great test of Hercules in Libra, in which Hercules is charged with capturing the Erymanthian Boar, is about learning balance and sound judgment. "... Hercules seizes the hind legs of the boar, and compels the beast to walk down the mountainside on its front legs, and ... this spectacle excites the laughter of all who witness it. In this incident we observe the Libran's ability to find unusual solutions, and to perceive the value of the incongruous." (16)
The Path of Earth Service Relating to Libra, this first Cosmic Path is that which maintains one's connection to the planetary spiritual Hierarchy, and which is pledged to the service of our planet. (17)
Draco the Dragon The Cosmic Path of Earth Service emanates via the constellation Draco.
Principle of Freedom The Principle of Freedom and the Principle of Liberation are related to Libra, for we are told, "the secret of liberation lies in the balancing of the forces and the equilibrising of the pairs of opposites." (18) Libra pertains to freedom: freedom from the personality, freedom from blindness, or freedom from all the seven planes of our planetary existence ~ the planes which are sometimes referred to as the arenas of human and superhuman evolution.
Cosmic Identification It is through the practice of identification with the Divine Life itself that we may begin to comprehend the nature of Spirit. And, to bring Spirit fully into our daily lives is service to the One.
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.
Autumnal Equinox A new balance comes into play.
