Today’s Prayer to Passage continue within the sacred texts of the “Rig Veda”. This month’s devotion to these ancient scriptures is taking place between May 1 – May 31, 2017.
Today I pray, “Dear God, It is a joy to speak with a specific group of friends on Monday afternoons in a conference call we have arranged to empower — and be accountable with — one another. These friends are my Essenes. The ancient Essenes were devoted to connecting with one another and encouraging one another to build up an energy of love in their immediate environments and, with hope and vision, around the world. This is what this group of friends is to me. Thank You for this. Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed texts in my hands and opened them to reveal this passage:
“HYMN LVI. Heaven and Earth.
1. MAY mighty Heaven and Earth, most meet for honour, be present here with light and gleaming splendours;
When, fixing them apart, vast, most extensive, the Steer roars loudly in far-reaching courses.
2 The Goddesses with Gods, holy with holy, the Two stand pouring out their rain, exhaustless:
Faithful and guileless, having Gods for children, leaders of sacrifice with shining splendours.
3 Sure in the worlds he was a skilful Craftsman, he who produced these Twain the Earth and Heaven.
Wise, with his power he brought both realms, together spacious and deep, well-fashioned, unsupported.
4 O Heaven and Earth, with one accord promoting, with high protection as of Queens, our welfare,
Far-reaching, universal, holy, guard us. May we, car-borne, through song be victors ever.
5 To both of you, O Heaven and Earth, we bring our lofty song of praise,
Pure Ones! to glorify you both.
6 Ye sanctify each other’s form, by your own proper might ye rule,
And from of old observe the Law.
7 Furthering and fulfilling, ye, O Mighty, perfect Mitra’s Law.
Ye sit around our sacrifice.”
I love the idea of Christ-consciousness, and of Essence-consciousness being on earth. I love the light and gleaming splendors that exist on planet earth at this time in human history. I am in love with life. I am in love with what we are creating here. I am truly grateful.
