Today’s Prayer to Passage continues within the ancient Sanskrit texts of “The Rig Veda”. This month’s spiritual devotion within these sacred scriptures is taking place between May 1 – May 31, 2017.
Today I pray, “Dear God, Thank You for allowing me to know You and to be You. Thank You for this awakening to Oneness. Thank You for allowing me to lift the veil to recognize my Self in all living creatures — all plants and nature, all animals, all people, and You. Source within. As above, so below. Amen. Namaste.
Following my prayer, I held the closed texts in my hands and opened them to reveal this passage:
“HYMN III. Agni.
1. O KING, the potent and terrific envoy, kindled for strength, is manifest in beauty.
He shines, all-knowing, with his lotty splendour: chasing black Night he comes with white-rayed Morning.
2 Having o’ercome the glimmering Black with beauty, and bringing forth the dame the Great Sire’s Daughter,
Holding aloft the radiant light of Sūrya, as messenger of heaven he shines with treasures.
3 Attendant on the Blessed Dame the Blessed hath come: the Lover followeth his Sister.
Agni, far-spreading with conspicuous lustre, hath compassed Night with whitelyshining garments.
4 His goings-forth kindle as ’twere high voices the goings of the auspicious Friend of Agni.
The rays, the bright beams of the strong-jawed, mighty, adorable Steer are visible as he cometh.
5 Whose radiant splendours flow, like sounds, about us, his who is lofty, brilliant, and effulgent,
Who reaches heaven with best and brightest lustres, sportive and piercing even to the summit.
6 His powers, whose chariot fellies gleam and glitter have loudly roared while, as with teams, he hasted.
He, the most Godlike, far-extending envoy, shines with flames ancient, resonant, whitely-shining.
7 So bring us ample wealth: seat thee as envoy of the two youthful Matrons, Earth and Heaven.
Let Agni rapid with his rapid, horses, impetuous with impetuous Steeds, come hither.”
—THE RIG VEDA
Oneness is a revelation. Oneness is what is available to us all. Oneness is the next state of humanity for all living things. Unity-consciousness is a transformation, and awakening. Unity-consciousness is to where we are going, where we are when we choose to be here. Amen. Satnam. Namaste.
