Esoteric Astrology - The Three Crosses - The Cross of the Crucified Christ
The Great Invocation

Let the Forces of Light bring illumination to mankind.
Let the Spirit of Peace be spread abroad.
May men of goodwill everywhere meet in a spirit of cooperation.
May forgiveness on the part of all men be the keynote at this time.
Let power attend the efforts of the Great Ones. So let it be, and help us to do our part.

The use of this first stanza was immediately successful and met with a full response from those good and well-meaning people whose focus is predominantly astral and aspirational, and whose aim is peace and quiet. This peace and quiet provides the "area of consciousness" in which aspiration can flourish, physical and emotional comfort can be attained and the recognition of the mystical vision becomes possible. [571]

The second stanza was given out later and was intended to be a test and a "decision point in a time of crisis."

Let the Lords of Liberation issue forth.
Let Them bring succor to the sons of men.
Let the Rider from the Secret Place come forth,
And coming, save.
Come forth, O Mighty One.

Let the souls of men awaken to the Light,
And may they stand with massed intent.
Let the fiat of the Lord go forth:
The end of woe has come!
Come forth, O Mighty One.
The hour of service of the saving force has now arrived.
Let it be spread abroad, O Mighty One.

Let Light and Love and Power and Death
Fulfil the purpose of the Coming One.
The WILL to save is here.
The LOVE to carry forth the work is widely spread abroad.
The ACTIVE AID of all who know the truth is also here.
Come forth, O Mighty One, and blend these three.
Construct a great defending wall.
The rule of evil NOW must end.

It was offered, under this test, to the masses, but was intended primarily for the use of those aspirants and disciples who are not only mystics but who have made at least some small progress in their attempt to tread the occult way. They are mentally focused in their attitude; the higher way is recognized by them; the vision has been seen and they are now ready for something closer and more real. The last stanza given is primarily, therefore, for the use of those who have mounted, or are in process of mounting, the Fixed Cross.

It is for this reason that the use of the second part of [572] the Great Invocation was relatively limited. It was repudiated (almost violently sometimes) by the emotional type of person who could see no further than the beauty of peace - the goal of expression upon the astral plane. Their vision of the greater whole and of the evocation of the will-to-good (which is not the will-to-peace) was exceedingly limited and this through no fault of their own. It simply indicated their place upon the ladder of evolution and marked a relatively useful point of service, but one which is in process of being transcended. The people in the world today are coming to realize (through suffering and its consequent reflection) that there is something greater than peace and that is the good of the whole, and not just individual, peaceful conditions or national peace. This reorientation of the human consciousness is brought about by the determined attitude of the souls of men, massed and blended, organized and focused by the vision of the general welfare of humanity.
