Could these beautiful parables, some so similar in form and wisdom to those Jesus taught, also be from the same source and intelligence and failed to be recorded in the Bible? The trancendencies experienced while reading this golden book defy description!
IMAGE OF GOD
Thou shalt not knowest of thy God as any man
Nor of the likeness of any man
Nor shall He cometh amongst ye with the name of many upon His lips
But rather He shall come as all things;
As the blades of grass at thy feet,
And thou shalt see His face in every cloud.
There is His Voice in the song of the birds
And the Radiance of His Love comes in glory of the warming sunshine,
And shall guard thee from the star-filled Heavens while thou sleepest.
Look ye therefore, in the vessel of thine own life
For surely as thou fillest it with the goodness of thine own life –
thou shalt seest there,
Not the reflection of thine own self –
But the glorious image of God.
SONG OF CREATION
For it may be that you come into the forest
That you will see about you the mightiness of the great oaks,
or the tallness of the pine trees –
Or that you will cast your eye upon the beauty of many
others of those splendid trees which groweth in the forest;
And it may be that as you pass among them your clothing
may be torn with thorns, or that your foot may be tripped
by the roots.
Thus it is that you keep your eye alert and that you wait,
That you will see the shafts of Light which permeate
and which come down from the Heavens above.
And in the branches of the trees you will
see the nesting of birds;
Among these trees you will see the flowers growing shyly.
So is your pathway in life, that ye may be tripped by the
roots of other’s selfishness
Or ye may be stung by the nettles from lips which have
uttered harsh words
Or that your clothing may be torn by the thorns of unkindness.
But ever it must be – that we must keep our eye aloft
And gaze into the time and the space where the Radiance of
God’s Love always permeates through the whispering branches.
And in the song of the birds we shall hear the song of the
promise of this Eternal Life,
And in the beauty of the flowers about us will speak the
Word of His Divine Creation-
That there surely shall be none among us who shall become
faint or weary,
So that we may know of other pathways from this place on.
For the garden of the earth is but one of the many gardens,
And the forests of the earth but one of many forests;
Its mountains are like the mountains of countless other earths
And its sunshine is like the sunshine of other mighty suns
And so thou shalt waiteth not
Neither shalt thou hasten, but listen only for the Voice.
See only with the Spiritual eye which discerns the Spirit
Then surely will thy footsteps be led always into
Where there are no thorns nor nettles, not roots to trip thee
And blessed will be the day of thy Eternity.
