4/7 New Moon Waxes to Wesak

Divine Flow

Emptiness which is conceptually liable to be mistaken for sheer
nothingness is in fact the reservoir of infinite possibilities.

- D. T. Suzuki

Even as we continue to bask in the Light of the Aries Festival, having culminated with the full moon on March 23, the cycle of Life continues to progress while the moon now wanes towards its new phase.

And with the new moon on April 7, our dedicated focus shifts from the holy energies of the Aries Festival of the Risen One ~ Easter, following the dark of the moon to wax towards the next and most high and sacred of the 3 spring festivals ~ The Festival of Shamballa ~ Wesak.

As a prerequisite for participation in the Wesak event, our individual will is to be fully dedicated to the fulfillment of Earth’s Divine Destiny. And at Wesak, the inflow of energies from Shamballa brings through the Will aspect to be utilized over the coming annual cycle. Hence it is of great importance.

In preparation for contacting the Will of God, let us consider

That will is often regarded as a power by means of which things are done, situations are brought about, activities are instituted and plans are worked out, and often ruthlessly worked out. This general definition is the easiest for men to formulate, because it is understood by them in terms of their own self-will, the will to individual self-betterment. This type of will is selfish and misunderstood at first, but tends eventually to selflessness, as evolution carries out its beneficent task. Then the will is interpreted in terms of the hierarchical plan and the effort of the individual man becomes that of negating his original self-will, and seeking then to merge his will with that of the group—the group being itself an aspect of hierarchical effort. This is a great step onward in orientation and will lead eventually to a change in consciousness.
              - Alice A. Bailey, The Reappearance of the Christ, p. 71

Our greatest service at this time is to bring in and through these rarified, pure energies and to safeguard them in dedication to spiritual Purpose.

While we may find such busyness that pulls us into physical plane activity, best as possible we also now strive to achieve the still and pristine channel of greatest purity.

This achievement happens in group alignment, for no single human is capable of creating and maintaining a stream of adequate bandwidth for the inflow of energies of the Wesak Festival.

Practically speaking, our human experience receives an upgrade in quality each year during Taurus. Our collective Life must integrate the Gift, brought by the Buddha at the exact time of the full moon during Taurus.

It is a matter of considerable importance to prepare for the Wesak event through alignment of the individual Will with that greater Will held and wielded by the group.

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

Suggested Meditation for the new moon phase in preparation for the upcoming Wesak Festival ~

The Great Bell Chant
(The End of Suffering)

May the sound of this bell penetrate deep into the cosmos
Even in the darkest spots
Living beings are able to hear it clearly
So that all suffering in them cease
Understanding comes to their heart
And they transcend the path of sorrow and death.

The universal dharma door is already open
The sound of the rising tide is heard clearly
The miracle happens
A beautiful child appears in the heart of a lotus flower
One single drop of this compassionate water
Is enough to bring back the refreshing spring to our mountains and rivers.

Listening to the bell
I feel the afflictions in me begin to dissolve
My mind calm
My body relax
A smile is born on my lips
Following the sound of the bell
My breath brings me back to the safe island of mindfulness.

In the garden of my heart
The flowers of peace bloom beautifully.

             - Thich Nhat Hanh
