The Royal Road to the Synapses
In the closing, we always caution everyone of the need to guard
the high energies we have just contacted, lest we become like Hercules and spoil
the Aries labor, because we let the Personality take control and scatter what we
have gathered. Our meditative efforts will be most productive if we continue to
nurture them with our rhythmic group attention through Wesak and the Gemini
Festival. Then the overshadowing good can begin to actually materialize in
We have invoked Aries’ gifts of vision and synthesis, and in
doing so, we literally have rendered our beings more porous to Spirit. This
porous state, at this moment of subjective power, is an ideal time to impress
our equipment with peaceful, loving kindness. This technique only takes a minute
or two, and is one of the best ways to safeguard the meditative work we have
Close your eyes, and remembering that our bodies are 70% water,
allow your sense of self to become fluid and wavelike. Surrender to the divine
dance of Father God Mother God within you. Imagine loving kindness as a drop of
rich blue dye. See this vibrant drop permeate through your whole being much the
way Easter egg dye colors an entire bowl of water. Fill yourself to the brim
with peaceful, loving kindness.
See it begin to color all with whom you have contact. Take a
little time to direct loving kindness to those most dear to you. Now expand this
gift to include your friends, …your coworkers, …your neighbors, …and even those
you do not like. Imagine how their behavior might change if they saw loving
kindness when they looked out at their world. You can be the beginning of that
vision for them, if you are willing to forego your own reactivity.
Now remember our pivotal position in the heart center of the
country, and experience this group drop of peace and loving kindness circulating
out as a healing blue wave to all of these United Sates and then onto the entire
Practicing loving kindness, especially when we experience the
movement of Spirit in us, eventually allows the energy to penetrate all the way
down to the synapses where our thoughts originate. Once the synapses have been
sufficiently saturated with peace and loving kindness, we no longer need to
“work” at these virtues. Peaceful, loving kindness literally fuses with our
perceptive faculties. It then automatically colors our thoughts, speech,
actions, feelings and sensations as they arise, transforming our consciousness
and our outer world.
Let us seal our work this evening with the 1935 first stanza of
the Great Invocation:
Let the Forces of Light bring illumination to mankind.
Let the Spirit of Peace be spread abroad.
May men of goodwill everywhere meet in a spirit of cooperation.
May forgiveness on the part of all men be the keynote at this time.
Let Power attend the efforts of the Great Ones.
So let it be and help us to do our part.
