A global army of generous hearts is marshalling into active service
The beauty of local initiatives is that people are doing what they know best from their own experience and expanding it to include those most in need. One inspiring example describes its mission in these words: “The PlateitForward Group has assembled with a simple mission, ‘To re-invent the definition of equal opportunity by providing food, education and employment opportunities to those most vulnerable in our local communities’.” (https://www.plateitforward.org.au/ ) This is just one of millions of examples of love in action.
This love reaches beyond the personal to serve the common good
…love brings all earthly karma to an end. Love induces that radiation which invokes and evokes not only the heart of God but the heart of humanity also. Love is the cause of all creation and the sustaining factor in all living.” Discipleship in the New Age Vol II, page 541
The beautiful qualities we associate with mothers are also the qualities of the soul.
As the feminine principle returns to its true place in the balancing of the worlds, the qualities of the human soul can begin to be seen in the world. The masculine principle will rejoice at the easing of long eons of labour that have exacted so much. The hard lines of separation and isolation are gradually softening and dissolving as we come to realise the perfect marriage of the two great principles creating a new civilisation of the Soul. The importance of this rebalancing was made clear in the Letters of Helena Roerich I:
Could the terrors and crimes of today be possible if both Origins had been balanced? In the hands of woman lies the salvation of humanity and of our planet. Woman must realize her significance, the great mission of the Mother of the World; she should be prepared to take responsibility for the destiny of humanity. Mother, the life-giver, has every right to direct the destiny of her children. The voice of woman, the mother, should be heard amongst the leaders of humanity. The mother suggests the first conscious thoughts to her child. She gives direction and quality to all his aspirations and abilities. ….” Helena Roerich 1 March 1929
This is the point of view of the soul which is at-one with all souls.
This law governs… the relationships between souls, who, whilst in manifestation through form, are en rapport with each other. It is a law, therefore, which concerns the inter-relation of all souls within the periphery of what the Christians call “the Kingdom of God.” Through a right understanding of this law, the man arrives at a knowledge of his subjective life; he can wield power subjectively, and thus work consciously in form and with form, yet holding his polarisation and his consciousness in another dimension, and functioning actively behind the scenes.
…This law is of major importance because of the fact that Deity itself is on the second ray [of love/wisdom]; because this is a second ray solar system, and therefore all rays and the varying states or groupings of consciousness, and all forms, in or out of physical manifestation, are coloured and dominated by this ray, and therefore again finally controlled by this law.
…This law governs also the relation of the soul of a group to the soul of other groups. It governs the interplay, vital but unrealised yet as a potency, between the soul of the fourth kingdom in nature, the human, and the soul of the three subhuman kingdoms, and likewise that of the three superhuman kingdoms. Owing to the major part which humanity has to play in the great scheme or Plan of God, this is the law which will be the determining law of the race. This will not, however, be the case until the majority of human beings understand something of what it means to function as a soul. Then, under obedience to this law, humanity will act as a transmitter of light, energy and spiritual potency to the subhuman kingdoms, and will constitute a channel of communication between ‘that which is above and that which is below.’ Such is the high destiny before the race.” Esoteric Psychology Vol II, page 110-112
In this moment between times love can carry us into a greater Presence that transcends time and space
The most beautiful word on the lips of mankind is the word “Mother,”
and the most beautiful call is the call of “My mother.”
It is a word full of hope and love,
a sweet and kind word coming from the depths of the heart.
The mother is everything –
she is our consolation in sorrow,
our hope in misery, and our strength in weakness.
She is the source of love, mercy, sympathy, and forgiveness….
Everything in nature bespeaks the mother.
The sun is the mother of earth and gives it its nourishment of heart;
it never leaves the universe at night until it has put the earth to sleep to the song of the sea and the hymn of birds and brooks.
And this earth is the mother of trees and flowers.
It produces them, nurses them, and weans them.
The trees and flowers become kind mothers of their great fruits and seeds.
And the mother, the prototype of all existence, is the eternal spirit, full of beauty and love.
