Today’s Prayer to Passage continues within the ancient scriptures of the “Nag Hamadi”. This month’s spiritual devotion within these texts will be taking place between June 1 – June 30, 2017.
Today I pray, “Dear God, I am seeking peace. I am seeking rest. And at the same time, I am seeking jubilation and liveliness. Yes, there is a theme here. Seeking. Everything is lighting two steps at a time on this staircase. And I am two steps from the plateau of this staircase, of which I am well aware. So, I rest in this awareness. I feel peace in this awareness. I am jubilant and lively in this awareness. Thank You for this. Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to reveal this passage:
“From now on, then, my son, return to your divine nature. Cast from you these evil, deceiving friends! Accept Christ, this true friend, as a good teacher. Cast from you death, which has become a father to you. For death did not exist, nor will it exist at the end.
But since you cast from yourself God, the holy Father, the true Life, the Spring of Life, therefore you have obtained death as a father and have acquired ignorance as a mother. They have robbed you of the true knowledge.
But return, my son, to your first father, God, and Wisdom, your Mother, from whom you came into being from the very first in order that you might fight against all of your enemies, the Powers of the Adversary.
Listen, my son, to my advice. Do not be arrogant in opposition to every good opinion, but take for yourself the side of the divinity of reason. Keep the holy commandments of Jesus Christ, and you will reign over every place on earth, and will be honored by the angels and archangels. Then you will acquire them as friends and fellow servants, and you will acquire places in heaven above.”
—NAG HAMADI SCRIPTURES
I am open. I flow into possibility. I accept the Divine will that arrives. And I am moving forward… one step at a time. Amen.
