Spheres Of Light

Festival of Goodwill

Ritual written* and led by Janine Donnellan
(June 2005)



It has long been a legend that at each Gemini full moon, that the full enlightenment of the pre-Christian era and the wisdom of the Buddha are re-linked to the cycle of the distribution of the energy of love, which is termed the "Christ principle."
 
This is, therefore, a festival of deep invocation and appeal, of a basic spiritual aspiration toward fellowship, of human and spiritual unity; and it represents the effect in the human consciousness of the work of the Buddha and of the Christ principle. It is known also as the Festival of Humanity or the Festival of Goodwill.

During this transitional period in history, at the beginning of one age and the end of another, the past and the future have swung into conflict. The Piscean influence is not yielding without struggle to the potent Aquarian energies, and the immediate effect is the destruction of the old forms so the new can be built. People know fear and separateness. At the same time, more and more people are seeking spiritual Reality, and a great expansion of consciousness is taking place. Indeed, history has always presented, on the one hand, the unspeakable cruelty of man to man, and on the other, the upholding of a vision in the hearts of men, and the constant struggle for human freedom and dignity.
 
Proof that the vision is not an idle dream lies in the achievements of individuals and groups working toward making the world a better place. This vision embodies as much of the Divine Plan as humans can grasp, not through the persuasion of scientific or philosophical proofs but through inner spiritual recognition.

A Meditation for the Festival of Goodwill

Enter into quietness, taking a few deep breaths.
See your physical, emotional, and lower mental bodies in alignment.
Visualize your flaming heart of Christ Light joining with other heart flames and pouring out upon the world the blessings from the "Centre- where the Will of Spirit is known." Visualize yourself and your fellow servers pouring forth this blessing.

We here now offer ourselves as a united channel.
As we align, clarify, and open to the inflow of energy,
We receive the illumination for the work to be done.
We all are One.

Closing
