An invitation to join the English Theosophical Society Link Meditation, to be used at each Full Moon.
May the Masters of Wisdom, for whose work Theosophical movements were founded, guard and guide us in this task.
May they ever strengthen it with their power, inspire it with their wisdom and energise it with their activity
Mindful of the goal of Brotherhood, let us link ourselves to all who are doing this work with us.
Let us envisage the whole of humanity as one expression of the Universal Life, in which each of us is a living cell.
Let us envisage the Theosophical Movement as a nucleus filled with awareness of the unity of all life with the Universal Life;
Let our minds rest on that unity, and our spirits illuminate it.
Allow your aura to fill with light- with the illumination of spiritual unity.
(meditation may last as long here as each individual chooses).
Conscious of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, of which we are a nucleus, let us hold ourselves in intense stillness and offer
ourselves as a channel through which light and love may radiate into the world.
As we use the Distribution, see the light shining out into the minds of humanity throughout the world, more intensely with each moment.
Let the light of the Hierarchy shine out into the minds of humanity.
Let the love of the Hierarchy radiate into the hearts of humanity.
Let the spiritual power of Universal Brotherhood that we have gathered
Pour forth bringing higher awareness, wisdom and peace.
So let it be.
What is Meditation
'Meditation is controlled mental activity which leads to complete stillness of the mind. When this condition is reached, the experience is one of peace and enlightenment
The mind in its undisciplined state is restless and unproductive. It is constantly active, with fragments of thought blowing in and out like dried leaves on a windswept day - trivial events, half remembered conversations, idle fantasies or obsessive worries. Such thoughts
fritter away the energies of the mind.
Just as in ballet and gymnastics, practice gradually brings the body under control, the body may be fully active yet at every movement perfectly executed and motionless poise may be achieved at will; so likewise through gentle training it is possible to bring the mind under control. To Meditate is to know oneself as the user and director of mental energy.
These skills do not come overnight, but are acquired gradually, through the regular practice of meditation, over a long period of time - and with dedication to the goal".
