Wesak Progress Report
As Humanity Evolves and our Kin-dom of Heaven Project
Since 1997, CtH UCC has engaged in an annual Wesak ceremony. Wesak (Vesak) is a holiday traditionally observed mostly by Buddhists. CtH offers an annual meditation too. This an esoteric Christian tradition that invites Christ and Buddha to work together to bless the world to make spiritual progress one step further each year.
The mythic story involves a gathering in the high Himalayas for the bringing down of the new energies to serve the world, into a bowl of water. We follow that tradition providing our own bowl and allow that water to be charged.
This year, in particular, our ceremony took place entirely outdoors, and precisely at the moment of moon-rise, an entire tribe of coyotes began howling together. It was remarkable in that the hills and trees around made moonrise at the precise moment unobservable. And yet, the Coyotes were right on cue. This was also at the moment in which everyone globally was meditating at the same time!
Wesak Water Interpretation for 2021
The light is yours to receive, yours to conduct, your to focus, yours to share.
- The light is not yours to keep, nor yours to own. Be the light.
- Remember the light of love.
- Weep for the darkness as light increases and darkness consciousness grows frantic, doing ever more which is wrong.
The greater the effort of the darkness, the deeper the plunge. So know in yourself compassion for evil as it intensifies. Dark brothers remain brothers. There are places where it’s getting worse because it’s getting better due to these frantic efforts.”
Wesak Water Interpretation for 2020
A coming year of humblest triumph. Foundations tremble in all quarters. Little collapses instantly, yet all power structures weaken. Power through oneness waxes. Power through force wanes, but gloat not. Tend the increase. In every human collection, this need holds. You have waited. This is a moment of greater inflection to the turning. Tend it tenderly everywhere. Only the light prevents the reversal of gains.
- Oneness in light
- Oneness of love
- Oneness as power
It’s a tentative but huge hope. We have what we’ve been waiting for if we can keep it by not getting caught in gloating or fighting. A call to double down on being our best, because one piece of what has always been the coming disaster is upon us. It’s mitigated and we can come out better than before. But it’s never guaranteed.
Wesak Water Interpretation for 2019
This period of test no longer builds. But the consequences of what is built must now be flooded with light, with love, with open acceptance. Continue to regard the light and the light only.
A peak is reached. Glide is ahead. No worse comes. All that must be loved is already launched.
- Love it fully.
- Love it kindly.
- Love it intensely.
The blessing is that we managed to hold enough light that we didn’t contribute to a new round of testing. We need to keep remembering the light to deal with the aftermath of what is already happening.
Wesak 2018 Remember the Light
Hold tight to courage. Let go of all rage, fear, despair. A tipping point is reached before Easter. Hold love.
- Embrace oneness.
- Accept what you find under all circumstances. This must be remembered every day, every hour of every day so that when the balance shifts, it shifts in love.
- Fear nothing. Even the most unwelcome news is bad news only when you reject it. Do not be tricked by invitations to feel anguish. Those who give all to the light must remember the light.
It’s like the whole descent into the darkness we’ve been witnessing a little at a time for years is reaching its nadir. It gets worse; and if at the worst moment the would-be saintly, the lightworkers, catch the infection of fighting back, the darkness will win because there is nobody who is holding the light and those who would be good are fighting those who have already made that mistake.
