Moon Chart 2018


In all meditation it is of value for the student to remember that, from the standpoint of permanent benefit, it is easier to meditate effectively during the period from the new moon to the full moon, than from the full moon to the new moon. The first half of the lunar cycle is one of intensification, absorption and accretion; the second half is one of assimilation and distribution. More real progress over a long period can be made by observing this cyclic law.

Wisely utilizing newly acquired energies keeps inflowing and outflowing channels open and prevents emotional, mental, and psychical congestions, which may otherwise be experienced, with their accompanying physical consequences.

Keynotes for the student:


I come forth and from the plane of mind, I rule.


I see and when the eye is opened, all is light.


I recognise my other self and in the waning of that self, I grow and glow.


I build a lighted house and therein dwell.


I am That and That am I.


I am the mother and the child. I, God, I, matter am.


I choose the way which leads between the two great lines of force.


Warrior I am and from the battle I emerge triumphant.


I see the goal. I reach that goal and then I see another.


Lost am I in light supernal, yet on that light I turn my back.


Water of Life am I, poured forth for thirsty men.


I leave the Father's home and turning back, I save.

These keynotes for the disciple may be used in sequence as the seed thought for the meditation work done each month at the time of the full moon.
