Lord's Prayer, from the original Aramaic
Translation by Neil Douglas-Klotz in Prayers of the Cosmos
April is just days away. Things seem slow perhaps, but May is my belly-button birthday and my AA birthday and my best friend is visiting and some of my children, so classes are not as frequent as they have been. I do hope you come create with me our new workshop, Into-Me-See in the Digital Age.
I know I've sent you The Lord's Prayer, but it's so powerful that I want to keep reminding folks that it's Our Father and Our Mother! See both prayers.
THE LORD'S PRAYER
Translated from the Dead Sea Scrolls, per Greg Braden
Who art in heaven,
Your name is honored by all.
Your kingdom, counsel and advice are with us now.
Your desire in heaven is also on this earth.
We give thanks for our nourishment this day and
We are freed from our offenses,
As we have freed our offenders.
Each day we remember our holiness
And are free from our errors,
For belongs to you
The kingdom, power and the song of all ages,
Throughout all ages.
Which art the earth,
Power be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done through us
As it is in thee.
As thou sends forth thy angels each day,
Send them to us.
Forgive our errors
As we atone our errors against thee.
Lead us not into sickness.
Deliver us from error,
For thine is the earth, the body, the life
We seal this prayer with faith, trust, and truth.
O Birther! Father - Mother of the Cosmos
Focus your light within us - make it useful.
Create your reign of unity now -
through our fiery hearts and willing hands.
Help us love beyond our ideals
and sprout acts of compassion for all creatures.
Animate the earth within us: we then
feel the Wisdom underneath supporting all.
Untangle the knots within
so that we can mend our hearts' simple ties to each other.
Don't let surface things delude us,
But free us from what holds us back from our true purpose.
Out of you, the astonishing fire,
Returning light and sound to the cosmos.
