… A Teacher Appears: Alice Bailey: “The way of introspection and of Divine union must precede … Divine perception” … The Great Invocation for all Humanity
Posted by Theta Networker
In the last month or so, I re-found some material which I had sent for from the Lucis Trust http://lucistrust.org/, founded by Alice Bailey and which maintains her work, which I first became aware of over two years ago when I “happened to” have my radio tuned to a station which was broadcasting her teachings early on Saturday mornings. And so I knew that Alice Bailey evolved to speaking of such as The Seven Rays … The Soul … What is death … Living a Spiritual Life … Spiritual Law … Esoteric Schools …
The radio broadcasts had been discontinued, and now I see that almost 200 of them are freely available for download as MP3s on the Lucis Trust web site, and selections of these [previous] broadcasts also are still broadcast via BlogTalkRadio.
“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”
Just a few days ago … by the synchronicity of passing by near a table which it was being discarded from … I came across Alice Bailey’s The Unfinished Autobiography (1949), which consists of eight cassette tapes, which I now listening to, as an education, not only on her life, but on how she evolved spiritually … On cassette 1, she says: “The mystic way of introspection and of Divine union must precede the occult way of intellectual realization and Divine perception.” Her journey and her philosophy resonate deeply with me …
She evolved from being a fundamentalist [read: exclusivist] to being one who would see all of humanity as having a spiritual destiny … an abiding purpose … a Plan of God open to people of all walks of life … and, in The Unfinished Autobiography, Cassette 4, side 2, would say that: “No personality has the right to ask spiritual pledges from other personalities. The only pledge that any human being should give is, first of all, to his own inner divinity, the soul, and later to the master under whose guidance he can more efficiently serve his fellow man.”
There are activities … up to becoming a student of the Arcane School as well as free and paid materials on the Lucis web site … There are no elite or powerful sponsors to donate their money to keep the work known as a Network of Light and Love alive …
By the way, I am writing this post after I, only last evening, downloaded from Tom Kenyon’s Sound Gifts http://tomkenyon.com/sound-gifts on his web site, his MP3 reading of the 23rd Psalm (The Lord’s Prayer) (although it has its roots in the Judeo-Christian tradition), as “a Mantra of Protection … a description of the ascension process out of the Hermetic tradition of Egypt (Ref: the universal Principle “All is in vibration,” as in The Kybalion) … the connection to your own celestial soul … ”
The spirit of Alice Bailey lives in the Great Invocation http://www.lucistrust.org/en/service_activities/the_great_invocation__1 that she put forth, and which may be downloaded as an MP3:

The Great Invocation
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men –
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the centre which we call the race of men
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.
Many religions believe in a World Teacher or Saviour, knowing him under such names as the Christ, the Lord Maitreya, the Imam Mahdi, the Bodhisattva, and the Messiah, and these terms are used in some of the Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist and Jewish versions of the Great Invocation.
Men and women of goodwill throughout the world are using this Invocation in their own language. Will you join them in using the Invocation every day – with thought and dedication?
By using the Invocation and encouraging others to use it, no particular group or organisation is sponsored. It belongs to all humanity.
