How Can the Use of Goodwill, Meditation and Other Spiritual Practices
How Can the New Age Technique of Invocation/Evocation Benefit the Work of the United Nations?
A Talk by Dorothy Tilson
In the future, this Science of the Antahkarana and its lower correspondence, the Science of Social Evolution (which is the joint or united antahkarana of humanity as a whole), will be known as the Science of Invocation and Evocation. It is in reality the Science of Magnetic Rapport, in which right relationship is brought about by mutual invocation, producing a responsive process which is one of evocation. It is this science which lies behind all conscious awakening of the centres and their interrelation; it lies behind the rapport between man and man, group and group, and eventually between nation and nation. It is this invocation, and the consequent evocation, which eventually relate soul and personality and soul and monad. It is the outstanding objective of humanity's appeal to God, to the Hierarchy and to the Spiritual Powers of the cosmos, no matter by what name you call them.1
We ask for things; we pray for ourselves, or for someone else; we meditate. What do all of these have in common? It's the movement of energy in some variant form. Although we don't see this energy, the occultists tell us that energy is very real. We develop a knowledge of science, and energy seen and unseen enters the realm of science of energy. One shouldn't be disturbed by the word science. "It is not the cold and heartless intellectual thing so oft depicted. It is in reality the intelligent organization of spiritual energy and the forces of love, and when effective will evoke the response of spiritual Beings."2 And thus we come to the Science of Meditation which includes the Science of Invocation and Evocation.
At this point we are particularly interested in effecting greater aid to the work of the United Nations. A more exact method of approach to Invocation/Evocation has been given to us. This is through the use of the Great Invocation passed to us by the Tibetan. The Tibetan states "The great Invocation relates the will of the Father, the love of the Hierarchy, and the service of Humanity in one great Triangle of Energies; this triangle will have two major results 'sealing of the door where evil dwells,' and the working out through the Power of God, let loose on earth through the Invocation, of the Plan of Love and Light."3 We can think particularly of the United Nations as the center of "the race of men" in the third verse of the Great Invocation—visualize the cloud of love and power overshadowing the United Nations as a center of humanity.
We can also take advantage of this World Invocation Day. The unified invocative thought of the masses and the focused, directed thought constitute an outgoing stream of energy. This will reach telepathically those spiritual beings Who are sensitive and responsive to such impacts. Their evoked response, sent out as spiritual energy, will in turn reach humanity, after having been stepped down into thought energy, and in that form will make its due impact upon the minds of men, convincing them and carrying inspiration and revelation. During this World Invocation Day Invocative aid for the United Nations can become particularly more effective.
We are told that Hierarchy has been invoked and its Members stand ready for a great act of evocation in response to the invoking sound of humanity. Therefore may we take advantage of this invocative/evocative process on this World Invocation day, and direct our invocative service to the welfare of the United Nations.
