Esoteric Astrology - The Three Crosses - The Cross of the Crucified Christ
It was, however, essential that these distinctions in attitude should appear in their clarity and, therefore, we gave out the two stanzas of the Great Invocation separately and at different times. You learnt thereby the difference of attitude between the mass of well-meaning people in the world, and the correctly oriented attitudes of the intelligent aspirants and disciples. This was necessary before wider action could later take place. I would pause here and remind you that both groups are necessary: the first group - emotional and idealistic - have a part to play in focusing the mass fluid aspiration. Their responsibility is to the general public. The other group of trained thinkers and people who are animated primarily by the will-to-good (which is of more importance in this world cycle than the will-to-peace) have a function to carry out in evoking hierarchical response in [573] reply to the aspiration of the first group. They focus this aspiration on the mental plane, create a thought-form embodying the objective and project the "call" which may reach the ears of the Lords of Liberation.

The blended invocation and the united call from the different levels of the human consciousness will bring a mighty appeal to bear upon the hidden Centers of the "Saving Force." It is this united appeal which you must now organize. Thus the mass of humanity will be stimulated to move off the Mutable Cross on to the Fixed Cross and the new world cycle, beginning in Aquarius (one arm of the Fixed Cross) will be definitely inaugurated by humanity itself.

It might be said, therefore, that the Great Invocation as first given out was for the use of those who are crucified upon the Mutable Cross, the Cross of change, whilst the second invocation is for the use of those who are crucified upon the Fixed Cross, the Cross of right orientation. It is for the use of those men and women whose aim is the will-to-good, who think in terms of world service and who are oriented towards light - the light of knowledge, the light of wisdom and understanding and the light of life itself.

Upon the Fixed Cross, the united influence of its four streams of energy, when expressing themselves fully through an individual disciple and through the Hierarchy, produces likewise three emerging conditions:

  1. There is a vast experience of group life, group activity and group awareness. The self-conscious man in Leo becomes the group conscious man in Aquarius.
  2. There arises in the consciousness of the disciple a vision of the "endless Way of which Nirvana is but the beginning." [574]
  3. He recognizes his task of mediatorship which is the major task of the Hierarchy, mediating between Shamballa and Humanity. He knows that he must carry forward the dual task of invocation and evocation simultaneously - the evocation (through right invocation) of the will-to-good of the world thinkers and aspirants, and also the will-to-save of the Shamballa Lords, via the Hierarchy, which he is in a position directly to approach. I touch here on grave mysteries.

There awakens in him, therefore, a vague determination at first which gives place in time to an evocation of the will in himself. This eventually puts him en rapport with the will aspect of Deity as it emanates and is stepped down from Shamballa, via the Hierarchy, into which spiritual organization he is being gradually integrated through experience upon the Fixed Cross. It might here be pointed out that:

  1. Experience upon the Mutable Cross integrates a man into the center which we call Humanity.
  2. Experience upon the Fixed Cross integrates the disciple into the second planetary Center which we call the Hierarchy.
  3. Experience upon the Cardinal Cross integrates the initiate into the primary planetary Center to which we give the name Shamballa.

He eventually becomes a radiating center of spiritual will, affecting humanity and evoking its will-to-good; he blends this into the Hierarchy as far as he can, fusing this human will into hierarchical activity in an effort to evoke response from Shamballa. [575]
