Praise And Thanksgiving 3

 


  You are the Supreme Mother and Father, sibling,  child, and

friend. Thank You, Supreme Power, for teaching us how to

experience the self as consciousness or spirit pervading and

transcending the body, mind, intellect, and ego.  

 

Thank You for teaching us our universal history, and our ancient

spirituality of praising and thanking You in all we think, feel, will,

say and do. This process purifies our Pineal Gland, cleans our

consciousness and helps us to follow You in Righteousness. Thus

we return to our original condition of Pure Awareness.



As long as we identify as a material body, and are in forgetfulness

of You, the more the consciousness is contaminated and we suffer.

 Conversely, The more we  see the self as spirit, as our successful

ancestors did, and praise and thank You, and You alone, the more

the consciousness is cleansed and we recover from the sin-sick

suffering of ego identification with its desire for profit, adoration,

distinction, name, and fame.

 
Thank You for revealing to us this ancient, path of meditating on

You. By this service our consciousness returns to its most

intelligent, quiet, and serene state. The first of the illusions we

snap out of is the mistaken belief that the self is a material body.  

Gradually, we awaken to the reality that we are the eternal spirit

that pervades and transcends, the material body, mind, intellect, 

and ego. 

 
The more we return to sanity, through purification of awareness we

realize that our biggest mistake lies in considering the body as the

self. In our right mind, we love the self as eternal spirit. The more

we awaken, we love You as the Supreme Spirit that pervades and

transcends all bodies, minds, intellects, and egos throughout the

cosmic manifestation. In our insanity we want material sense

gratification. In our sane mind, we want You and You alone.


You pervade and transcend the beginning, middle and end states of

all. Seeing that it is You in various forms of the "Other," we serve

You exclusively, and gradually return to You, here, now, our

original position of Divine Awareness.

 

Rules of grammar, ego identification, degrees, money, fame,

intellectual prowess, mental and physical strength, are great,

especially in the material world. However, history, our

observation, and our personal experience bears witness: Only a

mind fixed in You, through Your prayer, study, sacrifice, service,

right association, and meditation, will save us at the time of

old-age, disease, and/or death


As our consciousness is purified through service to You, we realize

how You are the foundation of victory, excellent health, the Source

of good nutrition, the fire of digestion, the energy of

circulation, and the strength of immunity from disease.

 

Offering to You, praising You, submitting to You, are all service to

You. As a result of service to You, we evermore serve all sentient

beings with selfless devotion.

Through service to You we see how You, The Permanent, Absolute

Existence, are the Source of time, Space, Sound, and Silence.

 

Surrendering everything to You gradually merges individual

consciousness with universal consciousness, universal

consciousness with cosmic consciousness, and cosmic

consciousness with Divine Consciousness, You. Thus, it is that we

come back home to our Eternal, Infinite, "Self".



By the Grace of this spiritual Practice our consciousness is being

purified of body, mind, intellect, and ego. Consequently, our

consciousness is attaining the original quiescence of Self, and we

are remaining increasingly in the calmness of Self, everywhere in

all sorts of situations.




You are the Highest and Most Powerful, the Root and Ground of

all being. Thank You for showing us how to worship You with

loving, devotional service. In serving and loving You as such, we

serve and love all, and we attain true emancipation: freedom from

Maya, Your illusory energy.
