The Lord's Prayer

I love the books the "Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East," by Baird T Spalding. They are about how, during his travels his India, Spalding meets Masters who are trusting in Universal Intelligence all the way. The 6 volumes comprise teachings he received from these Masters. The first two volumes are on the Internet; if you are interested see Life.

The following prayer comes from Volume 6.

Love to all,

(From the records of Jesus' life 50 years after the crucifixion, found in a monastery which they occupied."

You stand revealed to us this day as
The ever-present Principle.
Hallowed be your name;
We know it as Elohim.
Give us to live and know this day as you, God, alone
See us living and knowing,
Ever pure and perfect,
As you have revealed your Perfection to man.
And that Perfection has come forth as your son, your only creation,
The only one through which you manifest.
Give us to know your son. For to know you as you
Know man is to know ourselves.
For in knowing this, we are not led into any way
Save your way.
And this we know that this is the God way for us.
God our Father, we see clearly each day that we
May and do forgive every trespass that man has
Brought forth into this kingdom.
Thus we are not tempted to set up man's creations
For your creations.
God our Father,
Again we say hallowed be the name God,
God our Father.
