We think of You as the Greatest Intelligence.
To us, You are the Source and Ultimate
Witness of the birth, evolution, and dissolution
of the Cosmic Manifestations within which
are the enumerable Solar Systems.
We think of You as within, above, and beyond
all. We meditate on You as Supreme Awareness,
pervading and transcending the body, mind,
intellect, ego, and all Consciousness, Energy, or
Spirit. You are the eternal Source of our Self-
Esteem and our undying Friend and Teacher.
We think of You as the Supreme Mother, Father,
sibling, child, friend, and casual associate. Thank
You, Supreme Power, for teaching us how to
cleanse, expand, and raise our consciousness by
always thinking of You.

mental, an intellectual or ego entity.
The more we return to sanity, through
purification of awareness we realize that our
biggest mistakes lie in considering the illusory
body, consciousness, awareness, ordinary
intellect, as the self, rather than the Eternal
In our enlightened consciousness and
awareness, we see the self as spirit, energy,
or intelligence, and You as Eternal Spirit
or Energy, never destroyed nor created.
You are the Eternal Center-less Center,
the Infinite Intelligence above consciousness
and awareness. Please accept our most
humble, obeisances from all sides, from
above and below, inside and out.
Thank You for accepting our homage and
our honest attempts at restoring our Divine
relationship with You by these humble
offerings called Our Word. In this way,

History, our personal observation, and
experience, bears witness to the fact
that only an awareness fixed in You can
help us deal with Maya and Reality in all
