ADDIADEM: CROWNED IN GOD’S LIGHT

Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book ‘Siddhartha’ by Hermann Hesse and Hilda Rosner.

Today I pray, “Dear God, Siddhartha was a Sanskrit epithet of Buddha, stating one as “he who has attained his goal.”. I have attained my goal. And as a woman, I have created my own word for this blessed achievement: “Addiadem”. It is a halo, a crowning achievement of existence, a gift from You. May we all, each and every one of us, be crowned in Your Light. I believe we are. Amen.”

Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage:

“Your soul is the whole world.”
—HERMAN HESSE

This was a fun moment. I took a stand for women in creating my own word and my definition to the word. I am a stand for all people. And “Addiadem” is a word for all people. We are all surrounded by light we cannot always see with our eyes or feel with our touch. Yet it is there. We arrived holding it, we live owning it, and we depart keeping it. You CAN take it with you. It is YOUR crowning achievement of existence.
