Essene Meditations and Blessings #121

Meditation

What is the source

From whence gushes the frenzied growth

All about me?

What overlighting presence

Guides the living things of earth

Toward the zenith of their life?

I, as one of these living things,

Marvel at the perfection

Of our unfolding.

Blessed am I

To be part of the Plan.

The Blessing

My heart tells me

That the time of compromise

Has passed.

Now, the work I do

Must nourish me

And heal the earth

And free our common spirit.

Essene Meditations and Blessings #120

Meditation

Mother, in this season of the flowers

I bow to you in humble awe.

The brilliant colors of my blossoms

Are growing now,

Soon to fruit.

I feel the need to give to you

For all that you have given to me.

And though the moment is not yet right,

One day my fruit will yield its seed

To your sweet earth.

The Blessing

In the joyful outbreath

Of this season of my growth,

It is difficult to remember

The cycles of my life.

But remember I will,

For it is the rhythm of my living/dying

That gives the meaning to my journey.

And it is the surrender

Of yesterday’s fruit

That allows the new seed to grow

To flower.

Essene Meditations and Blessings #119

Meditation

Within the quiet of this morning

Stirs the constant movement

Of my breath.

The inbreath of my life-force

Draws the world to me.

And as the outbreath streams from me

I share my life with others.

So goes the process of my growth,

Inbreath, outbreath,

Giving, receiving,

And all is One.

The Blessing

Before you I stand,

Humble, yet assured,

A reflection of your own radiance and perfection.

As I grow,

I am my own gift to you, my spiritual Father.

I am the promise of the new,

And I am ever mindful

Of the reason for my life.

Essene Meditations and Blessings #118

Meditation

In my upward movement

Toward the perfect flower

That I truly am,

What feeds my inner being

But the waters of the earth,

Given by the Father to the Mother

And given back again?

Waters of the Spirit,

Waters of the earth,

Fill me fully with your life

And make me whole.

The Blessing

There is a knowing in the universe

That opens flowers in their time,

That gives me strength to grow.

The wisdom of this primal source

Is always mine to tap,

For I am one with all,

And all is mine to know.

Essene Meditations and Blessings #117

Meditation

The cells within my being

Respond to the call of my spiritual father,

The sun.

As I grow,

As I expand to fill the outer limits

Of my potential,

I am nourished by the warmth

Of our ancient star

And I have all that I could ever need

To guide me safely home.

The Blessing

Who could not see

Who could not feel,

The expression of divine Love

That fills the world this day?

As my buds softly open

Into rainbow flowers,

I return this Love

In everyway I can.

Essene Meditations and Blessings #116

Meditation

I am conscious of nature’s outward thrust

In this season of the flowers,

And my heart is filled with joy.

The colors of my world,

The colors of my being,

The excitement of my life,

All these are the love of God

Shining upon my spirit.

There is no more that I need,

For I am complete.

The Blessing

The joyful thrust of all of life,

Reaching for the sun,

Reminds me of the power that is mine

In the service of the Light.

May I remember always

That I am the server,

And that God is the Powr.

Meditation

My life is guided onward

Toward the Light.

All about me are the signs of growth,

The signs of new life

Bursting from containment.

I too feel this primal urge

To cast off limitation

And open my petals to the sun.

No longer must I wait,

I share my life with those I love.

The Blessing

Beauty surrounds me, beauty all around me.

Quiet beauty of the new flowers of springtime

Within me, the peaceful beauty of my being

Reflects the richness of my life,

And I am blessed.

Essene Meditations and Blessings #114

Meditation

My petals spread upward to the sun,

My roots dig deeply in the earth.

Outward streams my love

To touch all life,

Inward streams the love

Life shares with me.

Let me open fully to it all,

For love and life and growth come in many colors

And sing many different songs.

The Blessing

The season’s work comes clear to me,

Amidst my outward growth.

To love it all,

The bitter and the sweet,

For each is drawn to me,

Bringing lessons

To aid my journey home.

How blessed is the student,

How wise the teacher.

And are they not the same?

Essene Meditations and Blessings #113

Meditation

The earth, long my home

through the dark of winter,

Has yielded to the morning breath of air.

The plan now urges me to outbreathe,

To expand to meet my destiny.

Why am I here?

For what have I returned this time?

And the air breathes its laughing answer past me.

“You are life.

You are the all in the process of becoming one.

Experience yourself.”

The Blessing

What is this that gently forces me

From the still safe place of inaction?

What force compels me to, abandon my comfort

Of well-worn despair?

Our heavenly father does not work from without,

But from within my own heart.

As the Law manifests itself through Love,

I stand in humble awe of the part of God that I AM.

Essene Meditations and Blessings #112

Meditation

About me flow the waters of nourishment;

Within me flows the water of nourishment.

My bloodstream is aglow with the impulse of life

As I challenge the dark places of my being,

As I expand beyond the security of the womb,

As I move past my own definitions.

And surrounding this, engulfing me,

Is the cosmic ocean of Love and Light

From whence I truly came.

The Blessing

I pause to honor

The overlighting stream of wisdom

That guides each living thing on its jouney home.

That journey is my journey;

That home is my home;

And that wisdom is as alive in me

As it is in the highest of beings.

As I grow in spiritual maturity,

I see that this wisdom is always available

To the extent that I have prepared myself

To receive it.
