Thank You Aum.  Thank Bha. Thank You Gye Nyame.


Thank You Aum.  Thank Bha.  Thank You Gayathri.



1

Our origin is You, no nation, creed, color, or

 race binds us in their illusions.  We are spirit,

 temporarily trapped in the illusion, Maya. 


2

In that illusion, many of us seem to believe the

 self is material and will return to dust.

3

As we awaken, we see that the self is 

never born and never dies.  It is You,

 Pure Intelligence, within and above

 consciousness,  awareness, and 

ordinary intelligence.

4

  You are the eternal witness, changeless 

observer of  birth, growth, old-age,

disease, and death throughout the 

Galaxies.

5


 Our entrapment in Maya began prior to,

 during, and after the time of conception. 

It is the consequence of our own doing, our

own Karma.  We are responsible for our 

condition.  This condition is a product of our

 thoughts. 


6

 Always thinking of You purifies the 

consciousness in which thoughts 

concentrate, germinate, and agitate, 

according to the impurity or purity of 

the consciousness.



7


Our origin is You, no nation, creed, color, 

or race binds us in their illusions.  We are 

practicing with patience,  determined to 

awaken out of Maya and return to

You.  

8

 We are spirit, temporarily caught up in the

 illusion, Maya.  In that illusion, we are 

having thoughts that the self is material 

and will return to dust. 

9

We are eternal spirit, in quality one with You.  

The One, Eternal, Supreme Spirit, the Absolute 

Awareness, which gives life, light, and power to

 all, is You.  There is no concoction that is not 

within You and that does not contain You.

10

Gradually, as we associate with You, and our

consciousness is purified, freed from thoughts, 

and quieted again, we are empowered to

 meditate on You as Divine Intelligence.  

11

When we are enlighten with the knowledge

 whereby ignorance of Self is destroyed, we

 are reestablished in our Real Self.  This is 

the Eternal, Omnipresent Peace which is

 the Supreme Intelligence within and beyond 

all genders, designations and classifications.  

12

Your reign of Tranquility originates, pervades,

 and transcends the Earth and all the Heavens. 

The Earth and all the Heavens  are within You.  

Nonetheless, Your completeness can never be

 totally contained by them. 

13

This Eternal, Omnipresent, Completeness is 

You.  It is the home we never really left, like 

the wave that never really left the ocean. You

 are the Omnipresence we cannot, and do not 

want to leave.  Everything, including Maya is

 within Your Eternal Omnipresence.


14

The True Self cannot leave Your Omnipresence. 

 It is pervades, yet is beyond the field of action

and inaction, dishonor and honor, cause and

 effect, life and death, immanence and 

transcendence. 

15

According to Our Word, the ultimate goal of 

life, as spirit, is reunion with You, the Eternal, 

Divine Intelligence.  This experience is a

 reawakening, a return to the Source  of all 

consciousness and awareness.

16

We think of  You as the One Enduring

 Spiritual Principle, the All Attractive Love. 

Within and beyond all genders, non-genders

 and species of life, You are the One 

Fundamental Quintessence, the One that is

 within and beyond gross and subtle, past

 and future.  You are the Eternal Now.

17


 For Our Word, the material world is, always 

has been, and always will be a place of

ignorance where the suffering cycles of 

oppressive and exploitative birth, disease, 

old - age and death are constantly taking

  place.  


18


Our Word is presented as an offering to 


You.  In this way, we associate with You. 

By Your association, our consciousness


 awareness, and intelligence are purified.  

Gradually, we awaken, rising back into 

our Eternal Spiritual World.
