Complete Lyrics

Bridges Connecting the Different Worlds

 

I went to a world in another dimension, a place populated by beings of Light.

They welcomed me gladly and shared their intention: 

To bring what was lost in the darkness to Light.

 

(Refrain)  The High Mysteries sent us forth from the Light 

To travel down into the limited world,

We enter through images and archetypes,

The Bridges connecting the different worlds.

The Bridges connecting the different worlds.

 

Truth did not come into this world naked, but clothed in the images native to mind.

The beings beyond make the images sacred, 

teaching us through them to seek and to find.

 

(Refrain)

 

They asked me to talk to the images present,

Knowing that through them, we could commune.

Together we’d make the Light ever present 

And in us would marry the Sun and the Moon.

 

(Refrain)

 

Now I close my eyes and visit their dimension,

Joining with angels as they take their flight,

I work with them now and I share their intention,

Together we save from the darkness, the Light!

 

The High Mysteries send us forth from the Light,

To meet here together to transform the world.

We meet in the images and archetypes,

The Bridges connecting the different worlds.

The Bridges connecting the different worlds.

Bridges Connecting the Different Worlds.

 

(Words and Music by Zedek)

 

Who Do You Think I AM?

 

Jesus took John apart to endow him with gnosis,

The keys to the Mysteries

And the power that lead to the Divine.

 

These Mysteries of Eternal Life lift us up

To join Eloheim, the Gods of Light

Endowing us with Life, 

With a fullness of Divine Mind.

 

“Who do you think I AM?

Who do you think I AM?”

 

“You are beyond every name,

There is no way to name you.

You are beyond every thought,

Always changing but always the same.”

 

“This gnosis,” said Jesus, “has its source in the Light.

This gnosis can be yours if you keep on seeking.

Keep on seeking.”

 

Endowing us with fullness of Divine Mind,

Our heritage in the Light!

Endowing us with fullness of Divine Mind,

Our heritage in the Light!  

Endowing us with fullness of Divine Mind

Our heritage in the Light.

 

Our heritage in the Light of Eloheim.

 

(Words by Mar Samuel.  Music by Zedek) 

 

Endless Light

 

This is the vision given by our Savior to help you perceive Reality.

You can be lifted up to the Parents and unite.  You can live forever in Endless Light!

 

From the realms of Light, our Parents descended 

And sacrificed the fullness of their Divine Light.

Becoming Aadahmah, the first race of mortals, 

Pouring out their Love every day and night.

To become a divine being you first must be mortal 

And walk the Way of Gnosis to salvation.

You must eat of the Fruit of the Tree of Gnosis, 

Perceiving what is Light and what is darkness.

 

We who are mortal human souls forget we are children of the Gods.

We walk with our Parents to leave behind 

The ignorance of error that has trapped our minds.

Into the realm called the Garden of Eden, Aadahmah was still androgynous.

But the Serpent played the role to provide what was needed:

A clear separation into “them” and “us.”

The feminine side left Divine Anthropos, moving on and in to the Gnostic Way.

The masculine side saw the Divine Plan:  

Man will come from Woman who had come out of the Man.

We who are male and we who are female forget we were once androgynous.

Now we seek for the lost part that we might find 

The unity of being in the Divine Mind.

Why did the Parents who embodied Divine Light descend into the pain of  mortality?

Through their Love, they fell to bring us into bodies 

Giving us the chance to be Divine and free.

Now the Spirit calls us all to awaken from slumber.  

Illusions of separateness are washed away.  

Through immersion in Fire, our spirits ignite.

We are converted into Children of Light!

We who receive the Keys of Knowledge in the Temple of the Eloheim

Enter the Gate of Life through death, endowed with priestly powers made manifest.  

 

This is the vision given by our Savior to help you perceive Reality.

You can be lifted up to the Parents and unite,

You can live forever in Endless Light!

You can live forever in Endless Light!

 

(Words by Mar Samuel and Zedek.  Music by Zedek)

 

 

 

Song of the Twins

 

[The one who descended]

 

When I was a child living in our Native Land,

I wore a coat of red and a garment made of Light.

My Parents sent me down, deep into the mortal plane:

“If you seize the Pearl, you will join your Twin and become whole.”

 

I journeyed far into that place and found the Serpent living there,

But when I ate the mortal food, I soon forgot about the Pearl.

My Parents and my Twin sent me a Letter meant to awaken me:

“Remember who you are and know you have been sent to find the Pearl.”

 

[The Twin who stayed behind]  

And, as the one who stayed, I watched your gnosis grow.

And on your Light Garment, your gnosis overflowed.

And I increased in Light.  Your work increased us all.

You sang the words of power to Serpent

Was charmed and fell to you.

You seized the Pearl completing us.

No separation then divided our minds.

The Pearl of Gnosis is ours!

 

[The one who descended]

 

Now through the Gates of Life, I passed into the Pleroma.

The Great Work has been done.

Now I present the Pearl to Eloheim!

And now my Parents give to me my Garment of Light!

I take my place beside them with the one who stayed behind.

And illusions of separateness are washed away from my consciousness,

For I contain Reality and Reality is containing me.

 

So I descended and yet I stayed behind.

I am a Star of Light, I am a darkness, too

I am a Twin Spirit containing all opposites!

 

We sang the words of Light and Love.  Serpent was charmed and fell to us.

We seized the Pearl, completing us.  No separation now divides our Mind.

The Pearl of Gnosis IS!

 

(Words and Music by Zedek)

 

The Ocean that Hides These Things

 

Some call it “home” this mortal realm,

Where we’re born and we work and we marry,

Where together we came to dwell

Enjoying the good things of life.

 

But if I left all this we know

To set out for a Pearl that calls me,

Would your heart let you go to find 

The Ocean that Hides These Things?

 

To the Sea!

To the Sea!  To a Life so free!

To the Light of the Sea!  

To The Ocean that Hides These Things!

 

It’s said we’re captives of illusion, 

That our senses are focused wrongly,

Forcing us through involution

To be less than the humans we are.

 

Yet comes a Voice from deep within

And She’s calling you to come and find her

To learn the mysteries dwelling therein

There in the Ocean That Hides These Things!

 

To the Sea!

To the Sea!  To a Life so free!

To the Light of the Sea!  

To The Ocean that Hides These Things!

 

Will you then come to seek with me

For the gnosis that leads to our finding

How to become Divinity

Deep in The Ocean That Hides These Things

The Ocean That Hides These Things.

 

(Words and Music by Zedek.  Inspired by Mar Sarah Stead’s line drawing entitled

The Ocean That Hides These Things)

 

Christ Ascended to the Parents

 

Christ ascended to the Parents to open a Path of Light,

A Path of Knowledge ascending past the view of mortal sight.

 

He opens that Path before us so we can ascend with Him.

Through his cross be lifted above all the powers of death and sin.

 

Death is not a time for weeping for those who die in the Lord.

Their souls have long since ascended through the power of Christ’s word.

 

Satan’s power has now been broken by Christ’s death upon the cross.

We ascend with him in triumph through his gnosis none are lost.

 

Through his gnosis none are lost.

Through his gnosis none are lost.

Through his gnosis none are lost.

Through his gnosis none are lost.

 

(Words by Mar Samuel.  Music by Zedek)

 

Cross that Bridge 

(In Memory of Mar Sarah Stead)

 

A phenomenon she, transforms everything!

Her descent here brings our ascension!

Icon galleries, living tapestries, 

Worlds of mystery visiting our own.

 

Appearances can fool, images undo all the certainties we make of the world.

 

Manifesting paradox, she showed the Bridge between the worlds

Of matter and spirit, to cross the illusions of the mortal world.

 

Where she came from, we asked the Wonder Sea,

Waves of purity combining two natures.

Daughter of the Tree, a divine family

Penetrating in the Soul of the World.

 

Appearances can fool, images undo all the certainties we make of the world.

 

Under the midnight moon, I asked her, 

“Who are you, priestess of Light?

A radiant Ascended Master?”

 

She smiled and walked into the night,

A smile, then a turn into the Night.

 

It seems a distant time I last saw her,

Her head adorned with Lion Power.

Her blazing eyes seemed fresh from a new dream,

A truth she carried in her heart.

 

And from so far away I watched this.

I couldn’t follow on that road.

There was a bridge out in the white mist.

I saw her cross that bridge, not alone,

Ascended Masters took her Home

Home. 

Home.

 

(Words and Music by Zedek)

 

Song of the Gnosis for the Dead

(based on C.G. Jung’s Seven Sermons to the Dead)

 

Countless Gods are waiting to become Anthropos.

Countless Gods already have become Anthropos!

 

We came from Jerusalem!

But we did not find what we sought for.

Who lives!  Teach us to know the Divine.

Teach us, the dead, about Man and Gnosis.

 

We are ready for the Gnosis!

 

Man is but a portal through which one enters from the outer world of the Gods.

Into the inner world from the greater world, into the smaller world!

 

And in this inner world there gleams a holy Star,

The God of the solitary One.

And after death the soul returns to this one Star,

The wondrous Pleroma!

 

Tell us more of the Gnosis!

 

Pray to this one Star, increase its Light.

Your prayer builds a bridge over death!

 

Shepherd!  You who guide us, your flock

Through the night of this cold, dark, dreary world.

We are silent in the presence of Gnosis,

And we rise up like smoke rising from Fire.

 

We receive the Gnosis!

 

(Words by Zedek drawn from Jung’s Seven Sermons.  Music by Zedek)

 

Crown of Light

 

Christ, you live in my mind, in my heart, throughout my soul.

You have blossomed in me like a Tree budding in Spring.

 

From this Tree, Eloheim fashions Living Crowns 

With Roots that penetrate our brains.

Carving new channels for amazing knowledge, entwining me with Gods and angels. 

 

These crowns are alive!

These crowns are alive!

These crowns are of Living Light!

They bloom with new life!

They bloom with new life!

The fruit of Eloheim!

 

Christ, you live in my mind, in my heart, throughout my soul.

A crown of Light on my head, a crown of Truth woven for me!

Christ, your blossoms become the fruit of my perfection!

Living fruit from the Gnosis Tree in my mind, the Garden of our Gods!

 

From this Tree, Eloheim fashions Living Crowns 

With Roots that penetrate our brains,

Carving new channels for amazing knowledge, entwining me with Gods and angels!

 

These crowns are live!  These crowns are alive!  These crowns are of Living Light!

They bloom with new life!  They bloom with new life!  The fruit of Eloheim!

 

Christ, your blossoms become the Fruit of my perfection!

A crown of Light on my head, a crown of Truth with me always!

 

I invite you to plant the seed of this Tree inside your soul.

You will sprout beautiful indeed!  Full of gnosis in the Garden of our Gods!

The Eloheim will make for you a Living Crown with Roots that penetrate your brain.

Carving new channels for amazing knowledge, entwining you with Gods and angels.

 

These crowns are live!  These crowns are alive!  These crowns are of Living Light!

They bloom with new life!  They bloom with new life!  The fruit of Eloheim!

I invite you to plant the seed of this Tree inside your soul.

You will sprout beautiful indeed!  Full of gnosis in the Garden of our Gods!

(Words by Mar Samuel. Music by Zedek)

 

Radiant Family

(based on a verse from the First Communion with the Heavenly Father)

 

In the beautiful night sky, radiant stars give Light to countless worlds.

And in my soul these worlds and stars 

Unveil Divine Love’s Family within and without.

 

Angels of the Suns, I give my self to you,

Your Fire of Life, unending Light

In the dark of night.  

Your mystery filling me, living in me!

 

Ever faithful Eloheim,

Radiant in my soul and Cosmos,

One Family.

 

Light and darkness

Your love opens me!  

Your kiss is Peace!

Your Love is deep!

An Eternal Sea!

Your mystery filling me.

Living in me!  

 

Wondrous Suns and wondrous nights!

Radiant Family of Lovers, Eloheim.  

 

(Words and Music by Zedek)
