Divine Lover, take me ever deeper
There in the core of the self
Will I know who I am.
Where no one's name may reach,
Nor will i call myself a name.
There in the Center i shall be lost.
with no need for a name.
The knowing will be a knowing of you.
And you have no name-----
Nor then will I.
O Beloved of my heart,
Take me so deep that I am lost---
A great losing that finds
And finds forever.

Robert J. Hope, From the Center.

Abwoon D'Bashmaya - The Lords Prayer in Aramaic

1 comment:

    as translated from Aramaic by Saadi Neil Douglas-Klotz of the Sufi Order of the West
    O, Birther of the Cosmos, focus your light within us -- make it useful
    Create your reign of unity now
    Your one desire then acts with ours,
    As in all light,
    So in all forms,
    Grant us what we need each day in bread and insight:
    Loose the cords of mistakes binding us,
    As we release the strands we hold of other's guilt.
    Don't let surface things delude us,
    But free us from what holds us back.
    From you is born all ruling will,
    The power and the life to do,
    The song that beautifies all,
    From age to age it renews.
    I affirm this with my whole being.
