International Forgiveness Day ~ August 3

All the world’s major religions, with their emphasis on love, compassion, patience,
tolerance, and forgiveness can and do promote inner values. But the reality of the
world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate. This is why
I am increasingly convinced that the time has come to find a way of thinking
about spirituality and ethics beyond religion altogether.

- His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama  

Forgiveness ~ Quotes, Insights, Resources

The first Sunday in August each year is designated as International Forgiveness Day. At 7pm this evening, the Worldwide Forgiveness Alliance will celebrate the 18th International Forgiveness Day with a live event at Dominican College in San Rafael also available as an online broadcast.

Invocation and Evocation ~ Peace ~ August 2

There is a peace that passeth understanding;
it abides in the hearts of those who live in the Eternal.
There is a power that maketh all things new;
it lives and moves in those who know the Self as one.
May that peace brood over us, that power uplift us,
till we stand where the One Initiator is invoked,
till we see His Star shine forth.
May the peace and the blessing of the Holy Ones pour forth over the worlds.

- Alice A Bailey, Discipleship in the New Age

Path to Peace

For the coming week, SouledOut’s Leo Calendar focus turns to the science of Invocation and Evocation, specifically around the quest for Peace.

Fixed Cross ~ Teltane ~ August 1

We have the innate ability to send and receive energy, and loving intention is the director of
this impactful light. We are ultimately formed from the light that we send. We are the Light.

- Jeff Andrews

Fixed Cross

Considering the available energies at any particular time, one grounding practice is to work with the exoteric and esoteric mantrams for the influencing zodiacal constellation.

2014 Keynote & Impressions ~ July 31

... the law of cycles is the law governing the appearing and the disappearing of great and active
energies which pass in and out of manifestation, fulfilling the purposes of Deity and yet limited
and handicapped by the quality of the forms upon which they make their impact.

- Alice A Bailey, A Treatise on White Magic

2014 Keynote & Impressions

It is the present moment where all Life is focused and exists. Beyond present time, we may consider the current annual cycle as a broader scope of influence.

What assists us in aligning our personal will to Divine Will is to be cognizant about the energies at play, that are conditioning the series of moments being experienced.

Leo Labor of Hercules

In Leo, we see cosmic mind working out in the individual as the lower
reasoning mind, and this lower aspect has likewise to be sacrificed and the
little mind of man must be subordinated to the universal mind.

- Alice A. Bailey, The Labours of Hercules, p.104

Leo Legendary Journey of Hercules

The 12 Labors of Hercules are multifaceted tests or trials that give insight into the energies of each zodiacal constellation.

Our understanding of the 12 tasks assigned to “half man, half god” Hercules may impart wisdom to us as examples, especially meaningful ones when viewed through the lens of each of the zodiacal signs.

The Lighted Way ~ July 27

Since everything in the universe is a form of energy, everything falls within the
domain of the Law of Cycles: Sunrise and sunset, the waxing and waning moon,
the ebb and flow of tides, and the seasons of the year all reflect this law.
It reminds us there is a time for everything under the sun. All things rise and fall.

- Dan Millman

The Lighted Way

From our earthly perspective, cycles relating to the zodiacal constellations are the basis for the science of astrology. The Sun, Moon and all the planets appear to travel along the path of the ecliptic, from which passage we can derive the significance of these heavenly bodies as they influence our life and expression.

The Zodiacal Lights as shared in Esoteric Astrology by Alice A. Bailey represent the consciousness that qualifies each of the 12 constellations or signs in the ongoing dance of spirit and matter.

We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won't need to tell anybody it does.

New Moon ~ Great Path of the Clear Plane

As we approach the Cancer new moon we find ourselves within the waning period of the higher interlude of the spiritual year, which extends to include the new moon following the time of the Gemini full moon. At the new moon the energies available are concerned with manifestation, with the grounding of the contacted ideas touched at the higher interlude (the full moon period) in practical application in the world. The energies of Cancer, with its strong emphasis upon the seventh ray, aids us in our task of impacting the mass consciousness, the heart of humanity. That heart, we are told, is sound and its “soundness” can be brought into fuller expression as we work together, standing upon the periphery of the great Ashram of Hierarchy, holding our consciousness open and receptive to the next step needed to further implement the Plan for our planet. DK tells us the masses are “in the balance,” and that the present period is determining in its influence. It is the role of the new group of world servers everywhere, in every field of endeavor, to tip the balance towards Let us work and build together a lighted house on planet Earth.

Following yesterday's new moon (June 27, 1:08 am PDT) in the sign Cancer, we may attune to the new cycle by pausing to connect with the spiritual energies.
