I always wonder if all the Jesus lovers and bible thumpers have ever come across this book, PRAYER OF THE COSMOS, one of my top ten must reads. Just the cover alone was healing to my psyche and was what initially drew me to this book. I was raised Catholic on a healthy dosage of white Jesus: never saw my Self in God, and never really saw God in my Self. I did not know and understand him, Jesus, until my consciousness became more like his through my walk on the Sufi Path and my Kundalini yoga practice. The beauty of Christ Consciousness is the realization that we are all ONE, not separate from each other and not separate from the Creator. What we seek, we become: Seek light...become light. We all possess the power to heal and be healed. Our ability to BE like Jesus all comes down to the sanctity of our vessel: our ability to receive light and our humility to transmit it. Believe that! Become the miracle...

Translations and Meditations on the Aramaic Words of Jesus
"Thy kingdom come...Thy will be done..." Teytey Malkuthakh
Thy Kingdom come...
Teytey means come but includes the images of mutual desire, definition of a goal, and, in the old sense, a nuptial chamber- a place where mutual desire is fulfilled and birthing begins.Malkuthakh refers to the quality of rulership and ruling principles that guide our lives towards unity. It could be justifiably translated as "kingdom" or "queendom." It is what says "I can" within us and is willing, despite all odds, to take a step in a new direction.
The word Malkatuh, based on the same root, was a name of the Great Mother in the Middle East thousands of years before Jesus. The ancients saw in the earth and all around them a divine quality that everywhere takes responsibility and says " I can." Later those who expressed this quality clearly were recognized as natural leaders-what we call queens or kings.
Meditation on: Thy Kingdom Come...
The Creative Fire
Create your reign of unity now-through our fiery hearts and willing hands.
Let your counsel rule our lives, clearing our intention for co-creation.
Unite our "I can" to yours, so that we walk as kings and queens with every creature.
Desire with and through us the rule of universal fruitfulness onto the earth.
Your rule springs into existence as our arms reach out to embrace all creation.
Come into the bedroom of our hearts, prepare us for the marriage of power and beauty.
From this divine union, let us birth new images for a new world of peace.
Create your reign of unity now!
