Meditating the verse from the ‘Message+ Rediscovered‘:
-Teach us the vigorous prayers like the ruts of love.
-Give us the impulse that shall carry our souls beyond the abyss.
-Sing us the NAME that forces open the gates of death
-Nourish us with the essence dragged along by the living gold.
-Offer us the redemptive sun of our lives gone ashtray.
M+R, XIII, 16
As a lightning bolt,
It made me remember
this amazing quote
from the Baal Shem Tov:
‘Prayer is an intercourse (coit) with the Divine Presence. Alike the movement (of the bodies) that define the love making act, it is about to initiate one’s prayer by a growing sway; it is only later that the praying being will be able to stand in a pure stillness, in absolute union with the Divine Presence.
The energy that this bodily expression (at the time of prayer) may initiate in man a huge spiritual awakening. Until he will think: It is because Divine Presence is so close to me that my entire being quivers- and it is the strength of this quivering that leads the soul to a great yearning and sparkling.’
Translated from the French.
