The Angel of Eternal Life

    “Angel of Eternal Life, descend upon me and give eternal life to my spirit.”

The Essenes recognized the purpose of the universe could only be achieved through the evolution of consciousness and the manifestation of human potential.
Through this communion the intuitive knowledge of eternity can be aroused as well as unity with eternal life. Overcoming the gravity of earthly currents of thought and utilizing the superior currents from the cosmos are considered necessary accomplishments of the Essenes.


Deepening

What earthy currents of thoughts would you like to overcome? (e.g. violence, greed, judgments, fear.)

Meditate on other lifetimes. What contribution do they have for this lifetime?


Angel Date

Sit beneath the sky on a clear night and consider the meaning of cosmic consciousness. Listen to the stars.

The Angel of Eternal Life

    And Enoch walked with God;
    and he was not; for God took him.

Upon the earth was no man created like Enoch,
For he was taken from the earth.
He was as the morning star in the midst of a cloud,
And as the moon at the full:
As the sun shining upon the temple of the most High,
And as the rainbow giving light in the bright clouds,
And as the flower of roses in the spring of the year,
As lilies by the rivers of waters,
And as the branches of the frankincense tree
In the time of summer,
And as a fair olive tree budding forth fruit,
And as a cypress tree which groweth up to the clouds.
The first follower of the Law was Enoch,
The first of the healers, of the wise,
The happy, the glorious, the strong,
Who drove back sickness and drove back death.
Th did obtain a source of remedies
To withstand sickness and to withstand fever;
To withstand the evil and infection
Which ignorance of the Law
Had created against the bodies of mortals.
We invoke Enoch,
The master of life,
The Founder of our Brotherhood,
The man of the Law,
The wisest of all beings,
The best ruling of all beings,
The brightest of all beings,
The most glorious of all beings,
The most worthy of invocations amongst all beings,
The most worthy of glorification amongst all beings,
Who first thought what is good,
Who first spoke what is good,
Who first did what is good.
Who was the first Priest,
The first Plougher of the Ground,
Who first knew and first taught the Word,
And the obedience to the Holy Law.
To all the Children of light
He gave all the good things of life:
He was the first bearer of the Law.
It is written, the words of Father Enoch:
We sacrifice unto the Creator,
The Heavenly Father,
The bright and glorious Angels.
We sacrifice unto the shining heavens,
We sacrifice unto the bright, all-happy, blissful wisdom
Of the Holy Angels of Eternity.
Grant to us, Heavenly Father!
The desire and the knowledge of the straightest path,
The straightest because of the Heavenly Order of Life,
The Best Life of the Angels,
Shining, all glorious.
As health is excellent, so also is Eternal Life,
Both flowing from the Heavenly Order,
The creator of goodness of the mind,
And of actions of life performed for devotion
To the Creator of Eternal Life.Of the Holy Angels of Eternity.
Grant to us, Heavenly Father!
The desire and the knowledge of the straightest path,
The straightest because of the Heavenly Order of Life,
The Best Life of the Angels,
Shining, all glorious.
As health is excellent, so also is Eternal Life,
Both flowing from the Heavenly Order,
The creator of goodness of the mind,
And of actions of life performed for devotion
To the Creator of Eternal Life.
We sacrifice unto the sovereign sky.
We sacrifice unto the boundless time,
We sacrifice unto the endless sea of Eternal Life.
We do invoke the most glorious Law.
We invoke the Kingdom of Heaven,
The boundless time, and the Angels.
We invoke the eternal, holy Law.
We follow the paths of the Stars,
The Moon, the Sun and the endless Light,
Moving around in their revolving circle forever.
And truthfulness in Thought, Word and Deed
Will place the soul of the faithful man
In the endless light of Eternal Life.
The Heavenly Father possessed me
In the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning,
Or ever the earth was.
When there were no depths, I was brought forth:
While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields,
Nor the beginning of the dust of the world.
When he established the heavens, I was there:
When he set a circle upon the face of the deep:
When he made firm the skies above:
When the fountain of the deep became strong:
When he gave to the sea its bound,
That the waters should not transgress his Law:
When he marked out the foundations of the earth:
Then I was by him, as a master workman:
And I was daily his delight,
Rejoicing always before him,
Rejoicing in his habitable earth,
And my delight was with the sons of men.
For eternity the Heavenly Father reigneth,
He is clothed with majesty and strength.
He is from everlasting!
The floods have lifted up, O Lord,
The floods have lifted up their voice,
The floods lift up their waves.
The Heavenly Father on high
Is mightier than the noise of many waters,
Yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
His name shall endure forever,
His name shall be continued as long as eternity,
And all the Children of Light shall be blessed in him,
And all men shall call him blessed.
Let the whole earth be filled
With glory of the Heavenly Father,
The Earthly Mother,
And all the holy Angels.
I have reached the inner vision
And though thy spirit in me
I have heard thy wondrous secret.
Through thy mystic insight
Thou hast caused a spring of knowledge
To well up within me,
A fountain of power, pouring forth living waters,
A flood of love and of all-embracing wisdom
Like the splendor of Eternal Light.
