NIGHT LIGHT NEWS

DAILY STUDIES & POSTINGS

Further information on Group Work in an Ashram.
"Being drawn into a vortex of energy & field of service."
Wednesday, Mercury's day - March 22, 2017.
Our 3rd day of Aries, with a v/c moon today.
The moon enters Aquarius at 7:28pm tonight (west coast time). We continue today with the information on Group work...from Rays & Initiations - The Tibetan writes (p. 346)....

"One other point (about Group Work that I)I seek to make clear....
...an Ashram has Disciples and Initiates at all points of evolutionary development and all grades and degrees.

These all work together in perfect unison....within their differentiated ranks, for each degree stands alone yet united
with all the others - with their own established rapport, their coded telepathic interplay, and a shared occult secrecy and silence which guard the secrets and knowledges of one grade from another and from the unready. (Explanation - We do not know the grade or rank of our fellow group workers, this information we do not need to know).

Similarly, when an aspirant (seeking to find in every day life on the physical plane those who will/can share the mystery of the next immediate step or demonstrated expansion) discovers one's own group, one (we) will find that the group has those who have not reached his/her particular point of wisdom and those also who have already left him/her far behind.

We will be drawn into a vortex of force and a field of service simultaneously. As we work together within a Group -
1. we will learn the lessons required by one working in an Ashram.
2. we will learn how to handle ourselves with those who may not yet share the secrets which we already know, and
3. and with those who have penetrated deeper into the Mysteries than we have. We all, on different level, learn together.

(Explanation - we will find many different levels of knowing in the Group we are affiliated with. And that we are called & "drawn into a field of force & of service together.. (paraphrased)

With knowledge of Group work, we learn together.
We stabilize ourselves with our knowledge together.
We learn & work together. Always.

Death the Great Adventure
Tuesday, our 2nd day of Spring.
Dawn, a silky & pale orange sky.
Thunder rolling above the clouds.
Lightning. Then a rainbow over the house.
Then raindrops.
The dandelions, violets & daffodils holding their own.
A cardinal in the cedar tree hides away.

The Astrology Toda
Aries Sun plus Venus retro, Mercury & Uranus in Aries.
All things new. Standing in the new world.
Who is standing with us?

Capricorn moon - with Pluto - transforming the government.
And the people. Juno in Capricorn - giving the people a sense of empowerment.

Continuing with yesterday's quote.
As we enter the new spiritual year in Aries, the Temple doors stand open for aspirants & seekers to walk through that door. But there are guidelines as to how one walks through that door. That was explained yesterday.

Today....further instructions as to what the word of the Master meant....concerning working in Groups (which we are doing here), group relationships, and all of which lead to Group Initiation.
Part 3 is tomorrow. As I did yesterday there are questions at the end of the post....

From Rays and the Initiations - Part Two - Introductory Remarks

This thought of (information regarding) group initiation must be remembered, for it colors all that I shall seek to convey to your minds and will hasten the day of your own acceptance (into the Ashram of the Masters/Hierarchy - which contains both female & male Masters (ones who have "mastered" the Earth plane/school/Teachers).

No one is admitted (through the processes of initiation) into the Ashram of the Christ (the Hierarchy) until such time as s/he is beginning to think and live in terms of Group Relationships and Group Activities. The task now is to discover the group of aspirants with which one should affiliate and with whom one must travel upon the Path of Initiation - a very different matter and a far more difficult one.

One needs to bear in mind the meaning of the following words from the Archives of the Masters, given in question and answer form. The questions are addressed to the neophyte having a first glimpse of Group Relations leading to Group Initiation (expanding of light in the mind through study, meditation, and service to one another & the world). (the same invitation as yesterday is posted here....)

~Teacher to Chela (student, seeker) - the Dialogue

Teacher - "And dost thou see the Door, O Chela in the light?"

Chela/Seeker - I see the door and hear a calling voice. What should I do, O Master of my life?

Teacher - Go through that Door and waste not time in backward glances at the road just trodden. Go forward into light.

Chela - The door is far too narrow, O Master of my life. I fear I cannot pass.

Teacher - Go closer to the Door and take the hand in thine of another pilgrim on the way of life. Go closer to the Door; seek not to enter it alone.

Chela - cannot see the door, now that I grasp the hand of the brother on the right and the brother on the left. I seem surrounded by the pilgrims on the way. Alike they seem, their note is one; they seem like unto me, and press around on every side. I cannot see the door.

Teacher - Move forward on the Path, O pilgrim in the light, and stand together, hand in hand, before the Door of Light. What seest thou?

Chela - The door again appears, and wide it seems, not narrow as before. What was that I saw before?
It was not like the door which now confronts this band of brothers as we stand together on the Path.

Teacher - The door you saw before was a figment of your mind; a thought-form of your separative creation, something that cuts you off from truth - too narrow for your passing yet full of wrong allure. Only the man who holds his brother's hand can see the Door in truth; only the man, surrounded by the many who are one, can enter by that Door which shuts itself upon the man who seeks to enter it alone."

History (esoteric)
In Lemurian (when we were first on this planet, spiritual being encased in matter, developing the seeds of the mind - beginning 18 million years ago when we were developing physical bodies - we lived in the Pacific ocean lands - the US west coast & the Hawaiian islands & Pacific islands are part of Lemurian lands) days, initiates entered alone and one by one, and then only a few managed to attain the goal and one at a time were admitted to the Mysteries.

In Atlantean times (when we lived in the Atlantic ocean lands - the time before the Great Flood when the Masters/Teachers/Hierarchy lived with us - we lived in the realm of emotions then & didn't have the capacity of mind) , when the Door of Initiation stood wide open, the aspirants to the Mysteries were admitted in groups of seven, but had not contacted their fellow group members in physical consciousness; the emphasis was still (during the training period) upon individual attainment and achievement.

Today, so rapidly is humanity making spiritual progress, the Hierarchy is admitting groups all the time - thus the importance of understanding Group work, which we are doing here. (Rays & Initiations, pp. 344-5)

From Risa
This is our school, our Group Work, our Mystery School, our College & our Ashram. As we enter Aries each year, we step upon a higher level of work, of understanding & of study - always working together - sharing with each other our process. Learning together.

Questions
1. What was the purpose of today's post?
2. What were the main messages?
3. How does what was read affect me?
4. What information was not known? What information was known?
5. What is the difference between the Lemurian, Atlantean & the present admittance to the Mystery Schools?
6. Do I have questions?

Death the Great Adventure
In the Ashram we learn together about death - the Greatest Adventure - we understand death as a passage into liberation & freedom. Death comes when the aspirat/disciple has completed the Work, the Watch is over.

We pray....

~for those who have recently died & we pray for their families - suffering & at a loss.

Ohm Mani Padme Hum....

~for all those who have died in the past 48 hours in the world..

~or all those we are keeping vigil - for 49 days after death.

~Standing in the bardos (interim place between heaven & earth where the newly died ["called back, their work complete on Earth]
with those who have newly died. In the bardos we review our life.

~Walking them down the corridor, directly them toward the Light.
Ohm Mani Padme Hum....

Walking Through the Door – a new spiritual year begins.
We are offered an invitation on this new first day -
To enter into the Temple of Learning, of Light.
Statements to Seekers by the Teacher -

"And dost thou see the Door, O Chela (the seeker) in the light? "

• I see the door and hear a calling voice. What should I do, O Master (Teacher, Soul, Christ, etc.) of my life? “

“Go through that Door and waste not time in backward glances at the road just trodden. Go forward into light.”

• The door is far too narrow, O Master of my life. I fear I cannot pass.

"Go closer to the Door and take the hand in thine of another pilgrim on the way of life. Go closer to the Door; seek not to enter it alone."

• I cannot see the door, now that I grasp the hand of the brother on the right and the brother on the left. I seem surrounded by the pilgrims on the way. Alike they seem, their note is one; they seem like unto me, and press around on every side. I cannot see the door.

"The door you saw before was a figment of your mind; a thought-form of your separative creation, something that cuts you off from truth—too narrow for your passing yet full of wrong allure.

Only the one who holds his brother's & sister's hands can see the Door in truth; only the one, surrounded by the many who are one, can enter the Door which shuts itself upon the one who seeks to enter it alone."

"And dost thou see the Door, O Chela (the seeker) in the light? "

“Go through that Door and waste not time in backward glances at the road just trodden. Go forward into light.”

(from The Rays and the Initiations, pp. 344-345)

Standing together on the Path, hand in hand, unified in Purpose, we shall walk through the Door.

Sun in Aries – our first hours, our first day.
Right after the Sun entered Aries (3:29am west coast time), the Moon in Sag joined Saturn – the Teacher, the structure, the new structure for the new spiritual year.
Which we will proceed with here –

At 8:31am (west coast time) the v/c Moon enters (entered) Capricorn – sign of the Disciple/Initiate. Capricorn tells us to climb the mountain & stand in the morning, noon & evening Sun. The Light Supernal.

We begin a new spiritual year today.
It’s also International Astrology Day.
The Sun at 0 degrees Aries –

Why did I post this quote above? This is a real question to everyone.
It’s from Rays & Initiations, pp. 345-6
It is about Group Work which we are doing here.
Group Initiation.
The Tibetan writes about this in the book Rays & Initiations....
I will write more tomorrow. Part 2.

****
Our work has changed now. As we enter a new spiritual year.
This is our Temple, our College, our Wisdom & *** Mystery School.
There are those who will do the work.
There are those who will read & not do the work.
There are those who will fall away, the work being too difficult for them.
The Masters look for those who can do the work & integrate the work into their daily lives. The Teachers look for the Light developing within students.
The work is being made available here.
Only some will be able to respond.
Everyone participates at their level of ability.

****
Happy Spring Equinox
And so, in our new spiritual year, Happy Spring everyone.
The open door of the Temple of Learning, of Knowledge & of Wisdom lies ahead.
Love to everyone on this new spring day.
We greet Raphael, the Angel of Healing -
coordinating Spring while guarding & guiding the Earth.
Today - our new housekeeping within the Ashram.

It is about Group Work which we are doing here.
Group Initiation. 
The Tibetan writes about this in the book Rays & Initiations....
I will write more tomorrow. Part 2.

****
Our work has changed now. As we enter a new spiritual year.
This is our Temple, our College, our Wisdom & *** Mystery School.
There are those who will do the work. 
There are those who will read & not do the work. 
There are those who will fall away, the work being too difficult for them.
The Masters look for those who can do the work & integrate the work into their daily lives. The Teachers look for the Light developing within students.
The work is being made available here.
Only some will be able to respond.
Everyone participates at their level of ability.

****
Happy Spring Equinox
And so, in our new spiritual year, Happy Spring everyone.
The open door of the Temple of Learning, of Knowledge & of Wisdom lies ahead.
Love to everyone on this new spring day.
We greet Raphael, the Angel of Healing - 
coordinating Spring while guarding & guiding the Earth.
Today - our new housekeeping within the Ashram.

Post #2 - Sunday evening.
Preparing tonight for Spring....
O happy Day! Good evening, everyone.
And later....goodnight. I will see you all at dawn.
As we all stand in the Light of the Sun.
The vital force, the prank from the Sun.
Placing Light within the body.
We then begin, in our new spiritual year...
to be in harmony with the light of the Sun,
the dawn, noon & sunset. The new & full moons.
The solstices & equinoxes.
Each having to do with Light.
Tomorrow, in our new spiritual year, we begin a new rhythm.
We begin to readjust.
To harmonize with the rising & setting Sun.
Adjusting to the cosmic rhythms.
Which activates & organize our body rhythms.
It re-aligns the devas (elementals) within our bodies.
These are the rhythms of the Disciple.
And the teachings in all the ancient mystery schools.
This is our Mystery school. Our contemporary Wisdom school
Tomorrow at dawn then. I will see you there.
love, Risa

Hello everyone - on this Sunday, March 19, 2017.
The Sun's day. & on the cusp of Pisces/Aries.
Today is the last day of Pisces.
Tomorrow, in the early morning, Spring begins.
The Sun enters Aries - (3:29am west coast time).
So today, let us gather with intention all the Light of Pisces.
So that we may help in "ending forever the darkness of matter."
The waters of Pisces will blend with the fires of Aries -
to produce the new spiritual (& zodiacal) year.

Sun in Pisces (water), Moon in Sag (fire) today.
Preparing us for the fires of Aries tomorrow.
The waters of Pisces blending with the fires of Aries create
the Tide of Resurrection, the alchemical gold of Spring.
Nature is bathed in this water/fire which produces a specific light of Spring.

Let us prepare today to awaken early & face the sunrise tomorrow morning - standing with the birds and angels and devas and nature itself.

As tomorrow begins a new spiritual year, let us, each with intention, step upon the Path of the new year, enter the Temple, walk through the gates, stand in the Garden with Raphael, the Archangel of Spring.

We prepare today.
Tomorrow morning at dawn, in the first hours of Spring, let us stand in the Sunrise in the Mystery Temple (wherever we find ourselves), kneeling at dawn as the sun rises - & let our inner heart say the words -

"We face the sunrise & know that we face all things new.
We become the gold of the Sun as its light pours into us.
From now on we only say golden words.
As Spring begins, chanting with the angels, the devas, all the invisible helpers & all of nature....
& we say together - Hallelujah Hallelujah.
A new year has begun.
We are witnessing it, a great beauty, and we are part of it. Hallelujah."

Our work today....preparation.
love to everyone, Risa

Risa's Esoteric Astrology added 4 new photos.

Our Continued Work & Preparations.
Pisces - our last 2 days. The Light of the World. The Soul.
Saturday, Saturn's day -
Saturn guards & guides us today.
What are our tasks, duties, responsibilities?
If we are of the Jewish faith, we rest today. Saturn's task.
Those of the Christian faith rest tomorrow, Sunday. The Sun's task.

We are in our last 2 days of Pisces.
On Monday, Sun enters Aries, Spring begins.
Let us gather as much light from Pisces as we can.

"Pisces is the Light of the World, the Light that ends forever,
the darkness of matter." That darkness is the ignorance in the world, the unknowingness of the wisdom teachings.
Let us prepare for Spring (Aries, new life) on these last days of Pisces.

The Soul
The Soul is the "light that ends forever the darkness of matter."
Being on Earth & in matter is like living in a cave.
Eventually, we are tired of the darkness of the cave.
And we seek enlightenment, illumination.
What is this cave we ask? What is this darkness?
How do we leave this darkness? Where is the Light?

The Soul's Invocation (it tells us)...
I am the Soul
I am Light Divine
I am Love, I am Will.
I am Fixed Design.

The Journey
Through our questions, our unease, our seeking, our studies....
we eventually leave the labyrinth of darkness & find our way out
into the Light of Day - This "light" is the Soul's light. The journey
is the construction of the Rainbow Bridge - lifting the personality up to the the light & direction of the Soul. Then all that is dark becomes Light. The personality (vehicle that interacts with form & matter in the world) gladly offers itself up to the Light of the Soul. Glad to be out of the darkness of unknowing. The darkness of the cave. Then we begin to know that we are Divine.

"And the waters drowned the man (Pisces fish). And the fish was made to disappear. It then appeared again, and died again. Over & over, appearance, death, appearance & death. And then one day the fish (Savior, Pisces) brought salvation to the world."
(paraphrase - Esoteric Astrology p. 97)

****
Continuations, Preparations as Disciples
Working with the rhythms of the sky & earth.

We continue with our Venus retrograde journals.
Continuing to write about our values - getting to know ourselves more & more. Unfolding our Leo selves (gifts, talents) in order to serve in Aquarius.

We continue with our presence with the Christ in the desert.
During Lent. We appreciate Him & learn from Him. In our hearts.

We prepare together for the Spring Equinox (Monday).
For the Three Spring Festivals (Aries, Taurus, Gemini).
And for Wesak - the Taurus festival in the Wesak Valley.
When the Buddha appears.
We ponder upon these things...
In our Ashram, our college, our refuge, our sahgha (community).
love to everyone, Risa

Art -
1. Christ making a fire, preparing breakfast, hailing a ship as the Sun rises....seeing Him participating in daily life. We visualize we are with Him. With Love & with Joy.
2. Lord Rudra - destroying the darkness, the evil of the world. He carries a staff that looks like Neptune - destroying the illusions of the world. Note all the symbols below & around Rudra.
