SAMADHI

Vanished the veils of light and shade,
Lifted every vapor of sorrow,
Sailed away all dawns of fleeting joy,
Gone the dim sensory mirage.
Love, hate, health, disease, life, death,
Perished these false shadows on the screen of duality.
Waves of laughter, scyllas of sarcasm, melancholic whirlpools,
Melting in the vast sea of bliss.
The storm of maya stilled
By magic wand of intuition deep.
The universe, forgotten dream, subconsciously lurks,
Ready to invade my newly wakened memory divine.
I live without the cosmic shadow,
But it is not, bereft of me;
As the sea exists without the waves,
But they breathe not without the sea.
Dreams, wakings, states of deep turiya sleep,
Present, past, future, no more for me,
But ever-present, all-flowing I, I, everywhere.
Planets, stars, stardust, earth,
Volcanic bursts of doomsday cataclysms,
Creation's molding furnace,
Glaciers of silent x-rays, burning electron floods,
Thoughts of all men, past, present, to come,
Every blade of grass, myself, mankind,
Each particle of universal dust,
Anger, greed, good, bad, salvation, lust,
I swallowed, transmuted all
Into a vast ocean of blood of my own one Being!
Smoldering joy, oft-puffed by meditation
Blinding my tearful eyes,
Burst into immortal flames of bliss,
Consumed my tears, my frame, my all.
Thou art I, I am Thou,
Knowing, Knower, Known, as One!
Tranquilled, unbroken thrill, eternally living, ever new peace!
Enjoyable beyond imagination of expectancy, samadhi bliss!
Not a mental chloroform
Or unconscious state without wilful return,
Samadhi but extends my conscious realm
Beyond the limits of the mortal frame
To farthest boundary of eternity
Where I, the Cosmic Sea,
Watch the little ego floating in me.
The sparrow, each grain of sand, fall not without my sight.
All space like an iceberg floats within my mental sea.
Colossal Container, I, of all things made.
By deeper, longer, thirsty, guru-given meditation
Comes this celestial samadhi
Mobile murmurs of atoms are heard,
The dark earth, mountains, vales, lo! molten liquid!
Flowing seas change into vapors of nebulae!
Aum blows upon the vapors, opening wondrously their veils,
Oceans stand revealed, shining electrons,
Till, at last sound of the cosmic drum,
Vanish the grosser lights into eternal rays
Of all-pervading bliss.
From joy I came, for joy I live, in sacred joy I melt.
Ocean of mind, I drink all creation's waves.
Four veils of solid, liquid, vapor, light,
Lift aright.
Myself, in everything, enters the Great Myself.
Gone forever, fitful, flickering shadows of mortal memory.
Spotless is my mental sky, below, ahead, and high above.
Eternity and I, one united ray.
A tiny bubble of laughter, I
Am become the Sea of Mirth Itself.




ARAMAIC LORD'S PRAYER
(One Possible New Translation from the Aramaic)

O Birther! Father-Mother of the Cosmos,

Focus your light within us- make it useful:

Create your reign of unity now-

Your one desire then acts with ours,
as in all light, so in all forms.

Grant that we need each day in bread and insight.

Loose the cords of mistakes binding us,
as we release the strands we hold
of others' guilt.

Don't let surface things delude us,

But free us from what holds us back.

From you is born all ruling will,
the power and the life to do,
the song that beautifies all,
from age to age it renews.

Truly- power to these statements-
may they be the ground from which all
my actions grow: Amen.



PRAYER OF THE BODHISATTVA 

Alone, inthe presence of others, I walk through the
waking dreamof Life.

Others seeme. At the first sight of recognition, they turn away;
for theyhave forgotten.

Together, through the waking dream of Life, we journey.

May the clarity of my vision guide your life in grace,
for I am apart of you.

May my action remind you of your God within,
my action is your action.

May my breath become the breath that fills your body with life.

May my soul become the food with which to nourish and
quicken you..

May the words from my mouth find a place
of truth within your heart.

Let my tears become water to your lips.

Allow my love to heal your body of the pain of life.

In your most healed state, may you remember your
most precious gift; your divine nature.

Through our time together, may you know yourself.

In that knowing, may you find your true home,
your God within.




I AM ALL LOVE

O, Supreme Presence of God within all Life,
into your Eternal Heart of Love do I immerse myself and all Life on this sweet Earth.
I consciously surrender my vehicles to be merged with the
Love Nature of Your Being until I AM a pure focus of Love
—a living jewel in Your Crown of Adoration.

The path I walk in Life leads only to Love.
My physical body filled with Love becomes shining and invincible.
My etheric vehicle radiating Love transmutes the past.
Love in my mind ensures the expression of Your Divine Thoughts.
 Love in my feelings reaffirms that God is the only power acting.

As I AM thinking, feeling and remembering only Love,
I know that my I AM Presence is working through me,
radiating forth the perfection of my omniscient, omnipresent,
omnipotent Father-Mother God, All That Is, to Humanity and all Life,
 which I have promised to Love free.

In this awakened consciousness of Divine Love,
my spirit becomes Holy Spirit, and I AM the Love of God
reaching out to claim this Earth.

In Love I magnetize all of God’s blessings to me,
 and in Love I radiate these blessings forth to all Life around me.
 I AM the Spirit of Love permeating form until all is drawn back into the indivisible whole.

I feel the pulse beat of Love in all Life and the continuity of Love
 in all of the experiences I have ever known. It is ALL Love.

I was born out of Love,
I AM evolving through Love,
and I AM Ascending back into Love.

I AM ALL LOVE, and I AM Grateful.

And so it is, Beloved I AM.

A SHORT PRAYER FOR THE RELIEF OF PAIN

Weask in the name of all Thy creatures
That our suffering shall cease;
That we shall be fed and healed
Provided with safe haven here on Earth,
And then, oh Divine Mystery, a home in Thee.

From The Healing Runes
Ralph H. Blum and Susan Loughan



GIVING TO THOSE IN NEED

May I become at all times, both now and forever
A protector for those without protection
A guide for those who have lost their way
A ship for those with oceans to cross
A bridge for those with rivers to cross
A sanctuary for those in danger
A lamp for those without light
A place of refuge for those who lack shelter
And a servant to all in need.


- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama




A PRAYER TO THOSE WHO ARE DYING


The God of your understanding is with you now, even in this hour,
at this precise moment. If you have no understanding of God, that will not matter.
God is still here, in this place, with you right now, whispering toy our soul,
"You are welcome, whenever you are ready to come Home."

You shall not be turned away, not for any cause or reason.
 If there be cause or reason you believe to be valid, God -
 should you want God to- in this moment erases it.
God- should you want God to- in this moment makes all paths clear,
 all roads straight, saying,
"Make way for my beloved, who chooses to be Home with God."

This prayer is offered for you, wonderful child of the Universe,
as you embark on the most joyful journey you have ever
 taken, filled with wondrous surprises.
A journey into the greatest happiness you have ever known,
and the grandest experience you will ever have.

Dream now of glorious things. Dream of every fantasy come true.
Dream of every pain disappearing, of everything which time has robbed you
 being given back to you again. Dream of seeing loved ones once more-
those who have gone before and those who will follow.

Know for a certainty that when you leave here, you will be again with all those
 who have held a place in your heart and have gone before.
 And do not worry about those you leave behind, for you will see them, too,
again and again, and love them, too again and again, through all eternity,
and even in the present moment. For there can be no separation where there is
 love, and no waiting where there is only Now.

Smile, then,at the joyful anticipation of what is in store.
 These gifts have been laid up for you, and God has only been waiting for
 you to return Home to receive them.

Peace, joy and love are you, and are yours, now and always.
So it is, and so it shall be, for ever and ever.

Amen.


From Conversations With God, Book 3 by Neale Donald Walsch




THE GREAT INVOCATION

From the point of Light within the Mind of God,
Let Light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God,
Let Love stream forth into the hearts of men
May Christ return to Earth.*

From the center where the Will of God is known,
Let purpose guide the little wills of men,
 The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the center which we call the race of men,
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out,
 And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
