World Invocation Day: 04 June 2012 - An Invitation to Men and Women of Goodwill

Monday 04 June 2012 is World Invocation Day, 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 (see below). 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.

World Invocation Day is one of the three major spiritual festivals in the lunar
year, the others being Easter (06 April) and Wesak (05 May). The Full Moon in Gemini
on World Invocation Day is at 11.13hrs (GMT) - these Festivals are celebrated
with the rhythm of the full moon is as it marks the time each month when the
impact of the divine energies of Light, Love and Power are at their peak and
can be registered by a group energy and radiated into human consciousness.

This Full Moon is in Gemini, (which in astrology is represented by the twins),
and celebrates the recognition of the dual nature of humankind - the
personality self and the Divine or spiritual self. For those of you that wish
to meditate on the Full Moon, the Seed Thought for Gemini is "I recognise my
other self and in the waning of that self, I grow and glow".

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.

On World Invocation Day the reappearance of the World Teacher is expected by
millions, by those of every faith who expect the Avatar under such names as the
Christ, the Lord Maitreya, Krishna, Messiah, Imam Mahdi and the Bodhisattva.
The use of the Great Invocation is one of humanity's most potent tools in
preparing human consciousness for the reappearance of this World Teacher.

To use the Great Invocation is world service for it speaks directly to world
need today. We need light to illumine the way ahead and reveal the vision of a
new civilisation; we need love to govern the relationships between people and
bring to an end the reign of hatred and separatism; we need the power of the
will-to-good to direct human choice and decision making. The universal use of
the Great Invocation on World Invocation Day charges this day with deep
spiritual significance, for it builds a channel through which light, love and
power can reach and irradiate the hearts and minds of people everywhere.

Most of the festivals of the major world religions are held in accordance with
the lunar calendar. The date of World Invocation Day is also determined in this
way. It follows on two months from the Christian Festival of Easter and one
month from the Buddhist Festival of Wesak.

Each year, since 1952, people everywhere have celebrated World Invocation Day,
joining in the affirmation of the oneness of humanity, the livingness of our
relationship to God and the responsibility of humanity for the working out of
the Divine Plan on earth.

Will you join in observing World Invocation Day through the united use of the
Great Invocation, and will you join in making this day widely known?

THE GREAT INVOCATION*

From the point of Light within the mind of God

Let light stream forth into human minds

Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God

Let love stream forth into human hearts

May the Coming One return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known

Let purpose guide all little human wills

The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre 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.

*In accordance with the changing consciousness and language of humanity as we
enter into the Aquarian Age, this "adapted" wording for the Great Invocation is
offered in the hope that it will encourage wider distribution of this world
prayer.
