The Lord's Prayer (in modern translation easier to read with interpretation)
Our father who is in heaven:
The "Kingdom of Heaven" is not a physical place, but a metaphor. It is a state of being. It was also used in such a sense in the bible
. Some say that the word "entos" should be "among you" instead of "within" but if we
look at it's usage another word where "entos" is used in the bible is to say "within the cup" .
"Father" refers to "The Source" the omnipresent consciousness residing in this state of consciousness.
Blessed be your name;
This is a personal praise to The Omnipresent One (I Am).
May your kingdom come;
This is a prayer to help raise the consciousness of humans on the planet, to find The Kingdom of Heaven within.
May your will be done,
This is a powerful prayer for the actions of people to arise from The Kingdom of Heaven (awareness) rather than the lack of awareness.
On earth, as it is in heaven.
All things are perfect within The Kingdom.
And give us today our bread of higher being;
Most translate this as "daily bread" but ἐπιούσιον means ἐπι (on/at/over/super/higher) and ούσιον
(substance/essence/existence/being). This word is a compound only appearing in the bible and it was translated as "daily' since a good translation
could not be found at the time.
And forgive us of our debts,
Pardon us for not staying connected to our true self in The Kingdom of Heaven of The Father (I am - the omnipresent).
As we also forgive our debtors;
And since we are aware that we have erred from our true nature, we forgive others who do the same.
And do not lead us into temptation;
We want to stay connected to The Kingdom (in awareness/calmness) instead of The World (lack of awareness which leads to suffering).
But deliver us from evil.
Spiritual Liberation - not identifying with that which causes suffering (thoughts, emotions). "Evil" is man's description of that which leads to
Because the kingdom and the power and the glory is yours forever, truly.
The Kingdom is Infinite and Eternal - so it is "Forever" - and it is also Omnipresent (always present).
The Ten Commandments:
1. Do not worship any other Gods.
The only god is "I am" - "The Ultimate Reality", which means that God is existence, which means that God is omnipresent).
2. Do not make carved images of anything in heaven, earth, or the water to worship - Do not worship idols.
Humans have the tendency to make the unknown into gods to worship. In ancient times "Death" was a god that people would worship and they thought
that hopefully "Death" would have mercy and spare them to live a little while longer. By creating gods, or focusing gods that are supposed to be
"beings" in some "realm" - you miss the essence of the true God that "IS" - the omnipresent one.
3. The not take the name of The Lord in vain.
God is "I am" - "am" - "to be" is the essence. Always defining yourself as a "thing" in the mind - "I am this... I am that..." you forget
the core of all existence "to be" - "The I am"
4. Remember The Sabbath Day - to keep it holy.
The word "Sabbath" comes from a Hebrew root meaning "to rest from labor". This was advice given to humans to remind them that they are human
"beings" and not human "doings". So many people live their lives in a rush today always trying to "do" something instead of just
5. Honor your father and mother.
Appreciate the source of your physical body that you now experience in this physical existence.
6. Do not murder.
Do not set out to kill another, instead, stay in "I am" presence - in the sense of silence and calmness where action arises from the source.
7. Do not commit adultery.
Lust is short-lived. A temporary satisfaction. A goose chase to the fulfillment of another desire.
8. Do not steal.
Instead of action arising from lack. Allow action to arise from "I am" presence - neutral calmness.
9. Do not lie.
Instead embrace what is (truth/reality). Embrace the "I Am" that is all existence - the omnipresent one.
10. Do not covet.
Instead, allow your intentions to arise from "I Am" presence - neutral stillness. The intentions from the source do not leave a feeling of
"longing/lack" instead - focusing on presence - intentions are current and are are easily achieved.
