This guide is designed as an interpretive resource for the Event Temple (EVT) Session 2 meditation. If studied, it can add to your understanding of the purpose and process of synchronized, community meditation. We are forming a quantum community that expresses a collective compassion directed through divine intelligence (Spirit). It is the underlying purpose of Brightening the Path.

Note: The Brightening the Path script, in its entirety, is at the end of this document.

Event Temple Session 2 Meditation

There are words to speak. Thoughts to think. Actions to take… But now, in this Event Temple, we put away Thoughts and words.

This opening stanza acknowledges our human predisposition to speak, think, and take action in the everyday affairs of life. We were made for activity, but the work we are called to do in this EVT session involves inner, subjective action. Therefore, we set aside the many thoughts that naturally flow through our minds, along with the trains of words that accompany them.

Actions are our tools Actions of a divine, intelligent energy Imagined from our highest nature, Brought to awareness from our deepest heart.

We are contacting a divine, intelligent energy. We do this through an activation of our hearts and the imaginations.

The heart is the feeling sensor of our human constitution. The deepest heart refers to the subtle energies that emanate from the region of our physical heart, and these energies are frequencies of electromagnetism and photonic light; invisible to the eye. Just as the physical heart is the center of our human body, the energetic heart is the center of our spiritual life, and the gateway through which our highest nature reveals itself.

Our highest nature is a fusion and alignment of our heart, mind, and Spirit, working cooperatively to empower our imagination to see or envision what is beyond our experience and even our beliefs. It is the conduit we all share with the Field of Spirit that encompasses all life and spacetime.

It is all we bring into this temple of our creation.

We enter this Temple, therefore, by setting aside our egos, and fixing our attention instead on the inner, energetic heart and the imaginative faculty that works through it. We forge a partnership between our hearts and minds in service to humankind.

Our bodies relax. Our thoughts still. Our mouths fall silent. The divine intelligence within us rises From the powerful currents of our soul, Fully aware of its purpose In this Event Temple.

This can be called the stage of alignment between the human instrument, the soul, and the divine intelligence. This is the phase where the activities of the human personality are quieted, and the deeper activity of the heart-mind, the soul, and the divine intelligence (rising within us) come into activity.

As we compose the ego-personality, the voice of the soul can sound through the heart. This voice of the soul speaks the language of Spirit’s intelligence and in that quiet “space” created by our alignment we are able to experience divine intelligence. This is a sensitivity born of the inner world, not the outer world we experience through our five senses.

In the beginning of this practice, the soul’s voice may be difficult to detect. However, with more practice, with more willingness to come within the range of the soul’s harmonic frequencies, we begin to hear its voice.

We are scattered across the Earth Our purpose the same:

To brighten the path.

This stanza introduces one of the most important ingredients of effective community meditation—collective purpose. After acknowledging that we are scattered across the Earth, we are asked to recognize that our purpose is the same. That purpose is to brighten the path so that we and all humanity can expand and share the light so we can move forward with optimism and compassion.

In order to effectively transmit positive spiritual energy, we can all share the same intention, the same will, and the same purpose. Spiritual purpose is born from an emerging realization of our responsibility as energetic beings, and this is the power source that drives purpose into activity. Holding our purpose in mind and heart is essential to our Event Temple sessions.

We are synchronized By our souls’ intention. We bring our gift, Our divine intelligence, To the altar of Spirit And we set it down in love.

In alignment to our soul’s intention, we offer our gift of divine intelligence to Spirit, and we set it down in love. This is an act of humility which places us in a state that is profoundly beautiful, for we are at the altar of Spirit—we have entered the heart of the Temple—and recognize our real connection to Spirit, through the God-fragment that dwells in us all.

We have completed an act of co-creation. We have raised ourselves in Spirit with the purpose of brightening the path for ourselves and all humanity by temporarily laying aside our “normal” state of everyday consciousness and invoking the divine intelligence.

Love flows from our entire being as we realize that we are consciously engaged in a permanent relationship with Spirit. Comprehension and realization of our unity with Spirit instills heartfelt humility.

As one being we repeat the words:

Flow in compassion Release what is divine Like cells awakening We spark the others who walk beside us. We brighten the path.

At this stage of our meditation we are called to flow in compassion, a phrase worthy of reflection. Flow is the relaxed, poised expression of our highest nature releasing with ease the energy of compassion without directing it to this place or that person, but simply releasing it as a contribution to brightening the path for all.

This stanza also begins our outer-directed activity. Up to this point our attention has been focused on quieting the ego-personality and aligning heart, mind, and soul to the divine intelligence. But now our preparatory work is complete and we are ready to send our Spirit-infused energy to people in need. We do this by releasing what is divine and in so doing, we are like cells suddenly coming alive with light and love. Through the heart-mind’s imaginative faculty, we reinforce each other’s awakening and brighten the path for all. We are co-creating not only with Spirit, but also with one another.

Flow in compassion In doing this we are one being Calling the rays of light To descend on all. We brighten the path.

We now draw together as a community of energetic heart-minds, united through our souls and immersed in ever-present Spirit. We concentrate our desire and our purpose into an act of spiritual will by which we call the rays of light to descend on all.

Flow in compassion Bring the healing of your deepest self

Giving what is endless To those who believe their end is in sight. We brighten the path. We brighten the path.

Keeping in mind the idea of flowing in compassion, we are now asked to bring the healing power of the soul forward and give it to those in need—in this case to those who believe their end is in sight. These are members of our human family who see the physical body and mind as their sole identity, and feel this identity is threatened by the changing patterns of our complex and fragile-appearing world.

It is important to realize that the healing energy we give to others is endless. The soul is the healer and its supply of healing love is without end. Our opportunity is to concentrate our spiritual energies and project them where need can be met.

And now, our cooperative light Begins to assemble itself To focus To intensify. It fuses and becomes one. And the winds of Spirit guide this new light That we co-created To its purpose and destination:

A child Brother Sister Mother Father Grandmother Grandfather The human family The Earth The universes Our Creator All of Us.

We now offer our collective co-creation of compassion to Spirit, which directs it to its purpose and destination. We don’t know how the divine intelligence performs this function, but we trust in the process, and we know it will find its destination under the loving guidance of Spirit to a child, brother, sister, mother, etc.

Here we begin to assemble this lighted compassion, allowing it to build in spiritual power prior to its release and projection to Spirit for distribution.

What we have created Circulates within all of us Forever. Brightening the path For all to see a little clearer

The next step of their soul’s yearning.

This stanza makes clear that the positive energies we have generated within our individual selves and our quantum community are never lost. It continues to flow in and amongst the human family, adding light to the path we all tread.

It may seem a dream or wishful thought But what we give Endures, Echoing in the hearts of all Like a hologram that passes From the least to the greatest And returns again, to begin another cycle…

This stanza takes us two steps further. It states that the spiritual energy we have passed on to others endures within them as well—it is a gift from us to them.

Further, these spiritual energies are not static—they circulate. The energy returns again, to begin another cycle…

This divine circulatory flow can be seen as an ascending spiral of spiritual energy that builds up in the human family, further accelerating our reach into the spiritual realms that beckon us; realms that invoke our innate spiritual character.

As we complete this Event Temple Give your co-participants, Your friends-in-spirit, a blessing, Send them your love.

Important Points and Suggestions for Your Consideration

1. The first point involves continuity of practice. It is useful to perform this

meditation on a continuing basis. A sustained effort by a committed community of individuals can overcome the tremendous negative emotional currents of

hopelessness and suffering afflicting large portions of our human family.

We don’t recommend that you to go to extremes in your practice, but that you create a balanced schedule of practice that fits into your busy life. A steady, balanced, and dedicated commitment is something that only the individual can determine.

2. We recommend that you memorize three stanzas from the meditation. These

might be likened to affirmations of our dedication to our growing community and to

all humanity. They are:

To spark the others who walk beside us.

To acknowledge our assembly as one being as we call the rays of light to descend on all.

To bring healing to those who believe their end is in sight.

Collectively, these three stanzas are ultimately calling us to brighten the path by inspiring one another, invoking light for all, and bringing healing to those in need.

Here are the three stanzas:

Flow in compassion Release what is divine Like cells awakening We spark the others who walk beside us. We brighten the path.

Flow in compassion In doing this we are one being Calling the rays of light To descend on all. We brighten the path.

Flow in compassion Bring the healing of your deepest self Giving what is endless To those who believe their end is in sight. We brighten the path. We brighten the path.

3. Our final suggestion is to encourage you to download the video and/or audio EVT Session 2 and use it whenever you feel the call. [See the Downloads page on the EventTemple.org website.]

You then have the option of playing it at the scheduled times without having to be at your computer. For instance, you could perform the meditation via an MP3 player or home stereo.

Additionally, by downloading the video and/or audio you have the opportunity to share this meditation with a group. For instance, you might consider projecting the video on a screen or simply playing the video through your computer or television.

In other words, we want you to perform the meditation as often as you wish and as conveniently as you wish, either through direct scheduled, or even non-scheduled online computer sessions, offline scheduled sessions, or offline non-scheduled sessions alone or with a group—audio or video. You might also want to sit quietly and read the meditation as a way of making your inner connection.

In gratitude for your interest in the Event Temple Sessions.
