Magnetic Fields Forever

Magnetic Fields Forever ~ Audio

Blessed sister, holy mother, spirit of the fountain, spirit of the garden,
Suffer us not to mock ourselves with falsehood
Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still
Even among these rocks,
Our peace in His will
And even among these rocks
Sister, mother
And spirit of the river, spirit of the sea,
Suffer me not to be separated
And let my cry come unto Thee.

- T.S Eliot, “Ash Wednesday”

Our relationship to the Earth and to each other requires compassionate coexistence and is made holy by our honoring of all that which is sacred.

Every Day Is Earth Day ~ April 22

Every Day Is Earth Day

Every Day Is Earth Day

And Joy is Everywhere.
It is in the Earth's green covering of grass,
In the blue serenity of the Sky,
In the reckless exuberance of Spring,
In the severe abstinence of gray Winter,
In the Living flesh that animates our bodily frame,
In the perfect poise of the Human figure, noble and upright;
In Living, In the exercise of all our powers,
In the acquisition of Knowledge
In fighting evils ...
Joy is there Everywhere.

- Rabindranath Tagore

On Earth Day we may attune to our Earth’s Divine Destiny, for as humanity, we are intricately involved in this amazing transformation.

Path of Earth Service ~ April 21

Divine Destiny

Path I ~ The Path of Earth Service

A man looks away ... from the things of the personality and in service learns
the power of love in its occult significance. He spends and consequently
receives; he lives the life of renunciation and the wealth of the heavens
pours in on him; he gives all and is full to completeness; he asks
nothing for himself and is the richest man on the earth.

- Alice A. Bailey, A Treatise on White Magic

The Cosmic Path of Earth Service emanates from the constellation Draco, via Libra. This first of the 7 Cosmic Paths to Higher Evolution is the Way that maintains one's connection to the planetary spiritual Hierarchy, and which is pledged to service of our planet.

Restoring Planet Earth ~ April 20

Kingdoms of Nature

The Kingdoms of Life

... the three major groups of forces affecting our planet
are zodiacal, systemic and planetary in nature ....

- Alice A. Bailey, Esoteric Astrology

For the final week of SouledOut’s Aries Calendar, we now shift our group focus to the Restoration of the Plan on Earth ~ Restoring the planet Earth.

As we contemplate in aspiration to the Kingdom of Souls, our service on the planet becomes clear. We humans share a grand Purpose as custodians for the three “subhuman” kingdoms … Minerals, Plants, and Animals.

Resurrection ~ April 19

Resurrection

Resurrection ~ Returning to Original State

... we shall begin to learn the meaning of the word "resurrection,"
and the new age will begin to reveal its deep purpose and intention.

- Alice A. Bailey, The Reappearance of the Christ

In western civilization, the full moon in Aries is associated with the Christ’s resurrection from the Cross. We can transpose this symbolism into the broader scope of resurrection as it refers to the return to an original state by rising. The challenge is to be the Risen One and rise above fear, anger, doubt, pain, loss ... "Be not distracted."
