The Great Invisible Light

 

This is the story of how we began in the Great Invisible Light!

 

Hidden in the human soul, a Silence inscrutable,

The Source of all, emanating, 

Perfection sublime, inspiring,

Beckoning us, but hidden from sight,

This is the Great Invisible Light!  OHM!  OHM!

 

Manifesting from the Light, images of our birthright,

A Father is Gnosis, a Mother is Peace, 

A Son is pure Love, the Word and Key,

Androgynous Parents, our Day and our Night

Shaping the Great Invisible Light!

 

From These we come, from These we come.  OHM!

 

Down into the mortal plane,

Descending as They fore-ordained,

They sacrificed all for our gain, Aadahmah soon forgot their Name.

They became mortal souls that we might be whole in the Great Invisible Light!

 

For this we come, for this we come!  OHM!!

 

The Path to the Godhead begins with the Word, 

All you’ve experienced and all that you’ve heard.

Plant the Seed deep within your soul,

Then it will grow making you whole!

Till you’re wide as eternity, Divine as your Parents are,

Divine as your Parents are,

Divine as your Parents are in the Great Invisible Light!

 

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

 

 

The Dark and Mysterious Virtue

 

The Tao gave birth to One,

The One gave birth to Two,

The Two gave birth to Three,

The Three gave birth to all of Creation!

 

All things carry Yin,

All things embrace Yang,

Blending their Life breath,

Making a Harmony!

 

Every creature honors Tao and all its virtue!

No one tells them to honor Tao, it happens by itself!

So the Tao gives them birth and its virtue cultivates.

It is their Master, but seeks not to dominate.

 

The Tao cares for them,

The Tao nurtures them,

Gives them a place of refuge and peace!

 

All things carry Yin,

All things embrace Yang,

Blending their life breath,

Making a harmony!

 

Helps them grow and shelters them,

Gives life with no possession,

Cares for them,

Expecting nothing in return.

 

This is called the Dark and Mysterious Virtue.

This is called the Dark and Mysterious Virtue.

 

The Dark and Mysterious Virtue!

Divine Father

 

Divine Father, dwelling in Light, in the High and Holy Place,

When will I regain your Presence and, again, behold your face?

 

In your holy habitation, did my spirit once reside.

In my first, primeval childhood was I nurtured near your side.

Was I nurtured near your side.

 

For a wise and glorious purpose you have placed me here on earth.

And withheld the recollection of my former friends and birth.

 

Yet often, a secret something whispered, “You’re a stranger here.”

And I felt sure that I had wandered from a more exalted sphere.

From a more exalted sphere.

 

I had learned to call you “Father” through your Spirit from above,

But until the Key of Gnosis was restored, I knew not why.

 

In the heavens, are Parents single?  No, the thought makes reason stare!

Truth is reason, Truth eternal tells me I’ve a Mother there.

I’ve a Mother there!

 

When I leave this frail existence, when I lay this mortal by,

Father, Mother, may I meet you in your royal courts on high?

 

Then, at length, when I’ve completed all you sent me here to do,

With your mutual approbation, let me come and dwell with you.

Let me come and dwell with you!

 

Divine Father!

The Ballad of Abraham and Sarah

 

Blessed are you, Abram!  You are now Abraham!

Blessed are you, Sarai!  You are now Sarah!

Parents of a multitude!

 

There appeared great signs in the sky

And a boy emerged from a cave,

Traveling to the City of Shalom,

Abram was his name.

“I will make of you a Messenger” says Jehovah of Eloheim.

“I will give a land of Promise to your Eternal Family.

 

Blessed are you, Abram!  You are now Abraham!

Blessed are you, Sarai!  You are now Sarah!

Parents of a multitude!”

 

To the Land of Egypt, he unveiled the Order of Eloheim,

Taught to him by Shem and Noah, imparting Life and Unity.

From you Abraham and Sarah, comes the promised heir: Isaac!

From his chosen Line, the Messiah, comes and redeems us!

Foreshadowing the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ our Lord!

And making us one Family as the Parents restore

And evolve the Priesthood of the Masters!

 

As in the Temple of Shalom,

As in Egypt,

Abraham and Sarah bestow on us a Promise!

 

Blessed are you, Abram!  You are now Abraham!

Blessed are you, Sarai!  You are now Sarah!

Parents of a multitude!

 

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

Mother Mary Wept and Laughed

 

Our Lord and His mother sit talking one day

Concerning sweet promptings divine,

“Before I gave birth to you” Mary tells Him,

“A vision appeared in my mind

Deep vision appeared in my mind.”

 

Jesus listens as Mary reveals,

“I was led both to laugh and to weep,

My heart rejoiced then cried out with pain

As I suffered in agony deep,

As I suffered such agony deep.”

 

“What is the meaning” Mary inquires

“Of this conflict of darkness and Light

That caused my heart to leap up in Joy,

Then caused my soul’s pain to ignite?”

 

Mother Mary wept and laughed.

 

Understanding, Jesus explains, “Mother you wept for the sacrifice

I make to redeem humankind

From the consequence of their vice 

My free offering of Life will suffice.

Rejoice in heart, the vision you saw will comfort you in my passion.

The sword of suffering rends your heart, 

Pray to see behind illusion,

Mortal strife at its core is illusion.”

 

For I ransom children of Light

With my suffering I pay dark lords

The price is paid, the contract fulfilled,

With My Love more precious than blood.”

 

Mother Mary wept and laughed

 

“You laughed for Joy, for the triumph of Light

Over darkness and opposition.

The bright way opens for those who love Truth,

To be free of confusion,

Free from guilt and confusion. 

You can’t see Light without knowing darkness,

Can’t be free without knowing pain

You turn inward pursue Ahman’s Light,

The Comforter, your soul sustains

Sophia’s Truth, your soul sustains.

 

Be glad for the vision you have.

True insight to wholeness it gives.

You and I cannot be separate,

All the Joy that is mine you will live.”

 

Mother Mary wept and laughed.

 

“You and I cannot be separate

What Joy in our union we have!

With tears of sorrow, the Comforter anoints,

With holy laughter in Sophia we rejoice, 

Oh what Joy in our union we have.”

 

(Words by Mar Mary Elizabeth.  Music by Zedek)

 

 

O Light Invisible

 

O Light Invisible!

O Light Invisible!

 

May your Divine Love be present and be active

In the spirits, souls, and bodies of us all

At this moment, and throughout our lives.

May your Wholeness penetrate past every obstacle,

Liberating the inner Divine Spark from the darkness into the Light!

 

O Light Invisible!

O Light Invisible!

 

Bring the soul and body into order under the spirit’s counsel.

And bring all relationships we have into harmony.

May we accept and receive your Divine Love

For the health and wholeness of our hearts, minds, and bodies

 

O Light Invisible!

O Light Invisible!

 

May all these many parts of our being work together

In unity of the will, guided by your Divine Love,

That we become an incarnation of your Wholeness.

That we become an incarnation of your Light!

 

O Light Invisible!

O Light Invisible!

 

And do your will now and forever!

 

O Light Invisible!

O Light Invisible!

 

(Words and Music by Zedek)

 

I AM Light

 

I AM Light

Light!

I AM Light

Light!

 

And you call the Light

And you say, “Come to me.

The darkness surrounds me.”

Does the Light hear you?

Does the Light hear you?

 

I AM Light

Light!

I AM Light

Light!

 

Now quiet your thinking,

And see what you see,

And hear what you’re hearing,

Does the Light flow freely?

Does the Light flow freely?

 

I AM Light

Light!

I AM Light

Light!

 

And She takes your hand

And She looks right through you,

Do you understand?

The Light is you!

The Light is you!

 

I AM Light

Light!

I AM Light

Light!

 

(Words and Music by Zedek)

 

The Sun is Down

 

The sun is down, 

The moon is bright,

We’ve come to seek the Gods of Light

If we will pray for them to come,

They’ll bring their Love and make us one.

 

We have come seeking the Gods of Light

For they can fill us with power for right!

And in their Love, we’ll always be immersed in Truth,

Eternally!

 

Our Gods are great!

They’re over all,

We’ve been redeemed 

From mankind’s Fall,

Christ is our Savior, Priest, and King,

To Him, our lives, our all we bring.

 

We have come seeking the Gods of Light

For they can fill us with power for right!

And in their Love, we’ll always be immersed in Truth,

Eternally!

 

When Christ descends to claim His own,

And take us to His Parent’s throne

Then will our rapture be complete,

As we kneel at our Savior’s feet.

 

We have come seeking the Gods of Light

For they can fill us with power for right!

And in their Love, we’ll always be immersed in Truth,

Eternally!
