Praise And Thanksgiving 3
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. Of the Great, You are
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.
Thank You for revealing to us how to always think of You.
We think of You, we concentrate on You, we meditate on You
as Supreme Energy, Spirit, or Awareness.
We see our self also as energy, spirit, or awareness looking
out through this body. However You, as Supreme Energy,
Spirit, or Awareness, are looking out vibration throughout
the Cosmic Manifestations.
We meditate on You as the Witness of all, including Silence
and Infinite, Crystal Black, Intelligent, Living Space within
which the Solar Systems are continuously exuded,
maintained, and absorbed.
Thank You for teaching us our universal history, and our
ancient spiritual practice of praising and thanking You in all
we think, feel, will, say and do. Thank You for teaching us
the way back to You.
This process purifies our Pineal Gland, cleans our
consciousness and helps us to follow You in
Righteousness. Gradually, we steady, charitable, and
selfless. Thus, we return to our original condition of
Eternal, Pure Awareness.
The more we identify as awareness looking out through the
material body, and are in remembrance of You, the more our
consciousness is purified and we experience the tranquil
presence of the eternal, changeless, Peace of the Self.
Our Most Righteous and Enlightened ancestors saw the self
as spirit, and practiced a spirituality centered in You.
Praising and thanking You, and You alone, they raised
civilizations worthy of our respect and emulation.
The more we Remember You, the more our consciousness is
cleansed and we recover from the sin-sick suffering of ego
identification with its insatiable desires for profit, adoration,
distinction, name, and fame. Thank You for showing us how,
by always thinking of You, we go with the self to the Supreme
The first of the illusions we snap out of is the mistaken belief
that the self is a material body. Gradually, we reawaken to
the reality that we are the eternal spirit that pervades and
transcends, the material body, mind, intellect, and ego.
Thank You for revealing to us this ancient, path of meditating
on You as Silence and Awareness of Silence. By this spiritual
practice our consciousness transcends Maya and returns to
Its most intelligent, quiet, and serene state.
We think of You, we concentrate on You, we meditate on You
as the Supreme Energy, Force, at the beginning of all being.
Gradually, we reawaken as awareness looking out through
this body from the Pineal Gland. We think of You, we
concentrate on You, we meditate on You as the Source of this
One, eternal, omnipresent, Spiritual Force.
With this reawakening we see awareness being aware of
consciousness, and Supreme Awareness being aware
of awareness ad infinitum. We see that this Infinite
Awareness of all awareness, beyond time and space, is You
The more we return to sanity, through purification of
awareness we realize that our biggest mistakes lie in
considering the illusory body, mind, intellect, or ego as the
self, rather than Eternal Awareness.
In our right mind, we see the self as spirit or energy, and You
as Eternal Spirit or energy, never created nor destroyed. The
more we awaken, we are attracted to You as the Supreme,
Eternal Force that pervades and transcends all bodies, minds,
intellects, and egos throughout the cosmic manifestations.
In our insanity we want material sense gratification,
and peace through those brigands: Senses, mind, intellect,
and ego. In our sanity, we strive for You and You alone,
having experienced many times that there is lasting
satisfaction, fulfillment, and Peace in only You, and
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. We think of You as our original position of
Rules of grammar, ego identification, degrees, money, fame,
intellectual prowess, mental and physical strength, are great,
especially in the material world. According to our
experience, only remembrance of You helps us at the time of
History, our personal observation and experience also bears
witness that only a mind fixed in You can help us deal with
reality in all circumstances. Thank You for helping us
remember You. Thus we focus on the very highest level of
Through prayer to You, study about You, sacrifice
and service to You, right association with You, and
meditation on You, we receive real help 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
Offering all to You, praising You, submitting to You,
these are all service to You. As a result of service to You, our
consciousness is purified and are able to serve, ever more, all
sentient beings with courage, selfless devotion and
We think of You. We concentrate on You. We meditate on
You. Through this service to You we see how You, The
Immutable, Permanent, Absolute Existence, are within and
beyond time, Space, Sound, and Silence.
Surrendering everything to You helps us in our efforts to
always think of You. Gradually, through Your association,
our consciousness is purified of anger, lust, and
As a consequence of this purification process of always
thinking of You, individual consciousness merges with
universal consciousness; universal consciousness merges with
cosmic consciousness, and cosmic consciousness with Divine
Consciousness. Thus, it is that get fear out of our system,
and we come back home to our Eternal, Infinite, Self, You.
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.
