Today, September 21, groups and individuals everywhere are committing to 15-minute periods in prayer or meditation for world peace. This is a worldwide movement to create a global ceasefire and further the ideal of peace and nonviolence. If you're interested, keep reading.
We are told this is an attempt to create a pulse of invocative energy from meditators all over the planet. Visualize this as a rhythmic call to Divinity for the Light, Love and Spiritual Will needed to assist humanity to bring forth a culture of lasting peace. This initiative is just one small part of a much wider concentration of prayers and meditations for peace from spiritual and faith-based groups in all parts of the world.
SouledOut.org is holding a meditative space between 9-9:15 pm PDT on this day, and will sound The Great Invocation at both the beginning and end of this time period. You are welcome to participate in this meditation and sounding of The Great Invocation at this time, even if you're in a different time zone. By all means, please meditate throughout the day as you are inspired.
This Vigil began at midnight on the morning of Tuesday, September 21 in whatever time zone you live, and ends at midnight your time Tuesday night.
If you're in Europe and want to tune in on the California meditation, that would be 5-5:15 am in the UK, 6-6:15 am in France, Germany, Netherlands, and other countries in that time zone, 9:30 am in India, and 2 pm in east Australia.
Since we've tried war for millennia and it hasn't worked so well for humanity, maybe it's time to try peace for a while. Aum and blessings....
The Great Invocation is a universal prayer given to humanity by a Great One. Most religions believe in a World Teacher or Saviour, knowing this Light Giver by such names as the Christ, the Lord Maitreya, the Imam Mahdi, the Bodhisattva, and the Messiah. Where Christ is invoked in this prayer, please use your faith's name for the World Teacher.
Here is the version of The Great Invocation that I've been using for 34 years:
From the point of Light within the mind of God
Let Light stream forth into the minds of all
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the heart of God
Let Love stream forth into the hearts of all
May Christ return to Earth
From the center where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of all
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the center which we call the Human Race
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. Aum.
