Meditation 34

Invocation to the Holy Ones

(Volume 1 - Pages 651-652)

I would like to suggest that you add to your usual diary notations, a registering of Ideas. You will find it fruitful and constructive. Every six months, list those ideas so that they can be shared by your group brothers. Add to them any thoughts as to their enriching and their materialising. This is one way wherein the new ideas will be disseminated and spread. Some one must think them, some one speak them, and some one must respond to them.

  1. After a short breathing exercise, achieve alignment and self-forgetfulness.

  1. Sound the O.M. audibly.

  1. Say the following invocation:

"May the Holy Ones Whose pupils we aspire to become so strengthen us that we may give ourselves without reserve, seeking nothing, asking nothing, hoping nothing for the separated self; may we be content to be in the light or in the dark, to be active or passive, to work or to wait, to speak or to be silent, to take praise or reproach, to feel sorrow or joy—our only wish to be what They need as instruments for Their mighty work, and to fill whatever post is vacant in Their household."

  1. Then meditate for 15 minutes upon the following seed thoughts:

1st month—Restfulness—"The Place of Rest is on the mountain top whereon I stand detached.

Flooded I am by the life and love of God. That love I send to all my


2nd month—"Rest has its center in activity."

3rd month—Refinement—"The fires of God, electric and dynamic, burn out alloy. They leave the pure gold untouched."

4th month—"The burning fire blazes forth in all three worlds and all three bodies pass into the flame. Divinity remains."

5th month—Radiance—"The Rest of God underlies all life. The fires of God blaze forth. Men warm themselves before my fire. The radiance divine shines forth through me."

6th month—"May I be lost to sight, and only the radiance and the rest reach forth to men."

  1. Hold the mind then steady in the light and carry your plans and service into the Presence.
