The Spirit of Peace

E-mail Print PDF

The Spirit of Peace Who is invoked in the second phrase, "Let the Spirit of Peace be spread abroad...", is that mysterious and divine Entity with Whom the Christ came into touch and Whose influenceplayed through Him at the time that He earned the right to be called the "Prince of Peace." As I have elsewhere told you in my earlier writings, the Christ embodied in Himself the cosmic principle of love, the expression of which in manifestation will work out as "glory to God, peace on earth and goodwill towards men." To this the angels testified at His birth. When He expressed this principle of love in His life and world service, He definitely linked up our planet and humanity (in particular) with the Source of light, love and life to which we refer in this second phrase. 

This was the world salvation which He brought -a fact which is yet little realised and which will not be widely recognised until this powerful Invocation has taken due effect.     When the world aspirants and disciples use this Invocation the first phrase takes the consciousness to the Hierarchy of Light, which is the intermediate centre between Humanity and Shamballa.  It serves then to emphasise and establish a close rapport, blending and fusing the human and the hierarchical centers.   When this has taken place, the Hierarchy can use the Great Invocation with great potency and can carry the relation to a higher state still and produce a blending with the Shamballa center, where the Forces of Light are found as embodied Presences and where Their focussed energy serves to provide great reservoirs of light and love. 

These have hitherto not been made available forplanetary distribution, owing to the lack of established relation between the three centers: Humanity, Hierarchy and Shamballa.  That relation is now becoming somewhat ratablished; the inflow of light and love to humanity is now possible if the disciples and aspirants of the world can be led to make the needed effort to stand in spiritual being and, from that poised attentive attitude, to invoke these great Entities.  It was to this possibility that the story in the New Testament refers where reference is made to the pool which was stirred at times by the Angel and thus a condition was produced which led to the healing of the sick. 

The Angel of the Presence, the soul of humanity, as embodied in the Hierarchy and those who are consciously endeavouring to function as souls can now stir these reservoirs of force and light upon etheric levels in Shamballa so that a definite "healing of the nations" can take place.

When the thought behind the Great Invocation can be carried high enough in the consciousness of those using it through a joint effort of the world disciples and the Hierarchy of Light - as well as being reinforced by the Forces of Light - then the Spirit of Peace can be invoked.
