The Great Invocation

The Great Invocation is from Alice Bailey and has become a part of my daily practice.  This version brings together all three versions that she wrote, many during WWII, which, on a spiritual level, feels, to me, like we are picking up some of those threads again....and not just the Nazis, who are back.  I also mean things like we never have truly dealt with the reality of nuclear weapons...and we need to.  We let the great promise of the end of WWII, the idea that we could really develop the cosmopolis, devolve into state rivalries and economic colonization.  We had such promise at the end of WWII, and we squandered so much of it.  Anyway, I digress.  The language has been altered to make it gender neutral (I received it in that altered state from the Order of Ganymede, edited by the amazing Arachne) and then I altered it again to change "warring of the nations" to "warring of the factions," which is now our circumstance.  

Here is the edited text. https://theophaniadcdotorg.files.wordpress.com/2017/12/the-great-invocation.pdf

LET THE FORCES OF LIGHT BRING ILLUMINATION TO HUMANKIND.
LET THE SPIRIT OF PEACE BE SPREAD ABROAD.
MAY PEOPLE OF GOODWILL EVERYWHERE
MEET IN A SPIRIT OF COOPERATION.
MAY FORGIVENESS ON THE PART OF ALL BE THE KEYNOTE OF THIS TIME.

MAY THE SPIRIT OF PEACE APPEAR
AND END THE WARRING OF THE FACTIONS.
MAY THE REIGN OF LIGHT AND LOVE AND JUSTICE BE BEGUN!

MAY THE POWER OF THE ONE LIFE
POUR THROUGH ALL TRUE SERVERS. 
MAY THE LOVE OF THE ONE SOUL
CHARACTERIZE THE LIVES OF ALL WHO SEEK TO AID THE GREAT ONES.

MAY WE FULFILL OUR PART IN THE ONE WORK
THROUGH SELF-FORGETFULNESS,
HARMLESSNESS, AND RIGHT SPEECH.

OM!   OM!   OM!

LET THE SPIRITS OF LIBERATION ISSUE FORTH!
LET THEM BRING SUCCOR TO THE CHILDREN OF EARTH!
LET THE LIGHT FROM THE SECRET PLACE
COME FORTH,
AND COMING, SAVE.
COME FORTH, O MIGHTY ONES!

LET THE SOULS OF ALL AWAKEN TO THE LIGHT,
AND MAY THEY STAND WITH MASSED INTENT.
LET THE FIAT OF THE LIGHT GO FORTH:
THE END OF WOE HAS COME!
COME FORTH, O MIGHTY ONES.
THE HOUR OF SERVICE TO THE REDEEMING FORCE
HAS NOW ARRIVED.
LET IT BE SPREAD ABROAD!

LET LIGHT AND LOVE AND DEATH
FULFILL THE PURPOSE OF THE MIGHTY ONES.
THE WILL TO SAVE IS HERE.
THE LOVE TO CARRY FORTH THE WORK IS WIDELY SPREAD ABROAD.
THE ACTIVE SERVICE OF ALL WHO KNOW THE TRUTH
IS ALSO HERE.
COME FORTH O MIGHTY ONES,
AND BLEND THESE THREE!
CONSTRUCT A GREAT DEFENDING WALL THAT THE RULE OF EVIL END!

OM!  OM!  OM!

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 ALL HUMAN HEARTS.
MAY LOVE BE BORNE THROUGH US!

FROM THE CENTER WHERE THE WILL OF GOD IS KNOWN
LET PURPOSE GUIDE
OUR LITTLE WILLS OF EARTH.
THE PURPOSE WHICH THE GREAT ONES
KNOW AND SERVE.

FROM THE CENTER
WHICH WE CALL THE HUMAN RACE
LET THE PLAN OF LOVE AND LIGHT WORK OUT.
AND MAY WE SEAL THE DOOR
WHERE EVIL DWELLS.

LET LIGHT AND LOVE AND POWER RESTORE THE PLAN ON EARTH!

OM!  OM!  OM!
