A friend has just sent me this version of the Lord's Prayer translated directly from the original Aramaic into English. I can feel the balanced masculine and feminine energies of the prayer and can’t help wonder how different the world would be today if this integrated and whole experience of God has been allowed to shine throughout history.
"O cosmic Birther of all radiance and vibration.
Soften the ground of our being and carve out a space
within us where your Presence can abide.
Fill us with your creativity so that we may be
empowered to bear the fruit of your mission.
Let each of our actions bear fruit in accordance with our desire.
Endow us with the wisdom to produce and share what
each being needs to grow and flourish.
Untie the tangled threads of destiny that bind us, as we
release others from the entanglement of past mistakes.
Do not let us be seduced by that which would divert us
from our true purpose, but illuminate the opportunities
of the present moment.
For you are the ground and the fruitful vision, the birth,
power and fulfillment, as all is gathered and made
whole once again."
