Gemini ~ The Festival of Humanity ~ World Invocation Day
The first three full moons of the astrological year are considered to be three linked festivals by many meditation groups. Aries is the first, which brings a fresh impetus of energy and ideas. Taurus enlarges the energy with new light. And, Gemini is called the Festival of Humanity, as it brings the energy closer to the hearts and minds of Humanity. It is also celebrated as World Invocation Day.
About World Invocation Day
A World Day of Prayer, Invocation and Meditation - An Invitation to Men and Women of Goodwill
World Invocation Day is a world day of prayer and meditation when men and women of every spiritual path join in a universal appeal to divinity and use the Great Invocation. Together they focus the invocative demand of humanity for the light, the love and the spiritual direction needed to build a world of justice, unity and peace.
As we begin the new millennium, we face the fact that materialistic values have led humanity to a state of profound crisis. Our very survival is threatened, not only by militarism, but by our lack of wisdom and will to feed the hungry, to share our plentiful resources, and to solve the many other critical problems which confront the human family.
Yet the solution exists. One of the greatest insights of our time is that of the interdependence and interrelatedness of all life. Today millions of people share the conviction of an inner spiritual unity within humanity which transcends any outer differences of race, nation and creed. As men and women of goodwill the world over give expression to this conviction in their lives, a process of planetary transformation is taking place. A new civilisation is emerging which embraces all peoples and is founded upon the recognition of our common humanity and right human relations.
The world’s problems are of humanity’s making and they are for humanity to solve. But the essence of the spiritual life lies in knowing that we are not alone. The energies of divinity are abundantly available and, on World Invocation Day, an appeal is made for the release of the energies which will enable humanity to create the new civilisation.
Since 1951 when Alice Bailey released The Great Invocation to the public, this mantra has been used to invoke Light, Love and (Spiritual) Power. These exact words were formulated by the Masters for the understanding of the times. We now understand that the “Christ” we look forward to receiving, is a group avatar; it is Humanity’s open heart, and that the word, “men,” refers to all people. The recitation of this mantra is a Great Service as it unites Humanity and calls in the needed energy for the Shift in Consciousness.
