I took some time off from writing to settle into winter weather and enjoy the holiday season. A friend invited me to celebrate New Year’s Day by participating in a peace meditation. It was a wonderful opportunity to break out of my winter cocoon, to meet new people and experience a different tradition. As a group we read aloud:
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 center where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide all little human wills –
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the center 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.
