The Tree of Life, or Etz haChayim in Hebrew and in Hermetic traditions. The tree is a map representing a series of divine emanations of God's creation, itself made out of nothing, the nature of revealed divinity, the human soul, and the spiritual path of ascent by man, a full model of reality.
"Be careful of your thoughts, for your thoughts become your words.
Be careful of your words, for your words become your actions.
Be careful of your actions, for your actions become your habits.
Be careful of your habits, for your habits become your character.
Be careful of your character, for your character becomes your destiny."
The Goddess of
Knowledge and Wisdom,
represents unpolluted consciousness,
and destroys the demons of
negativity and ignorance,
Lord make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope. Where there is darkness, light.
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master grant that
I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned
And it's in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen
St Francis' Prayer
LITTLE PEARLS OF WISDOM TO LIVE BY...:
The Lord's Prayer directly translated from Aramaic,
so to see how much gets lost in translations...:
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 that which 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 round and fruitful Vision, the birth Power and Fulfillment,
as All is gathered and made whole once again. Amen.
