24 Bypassing God

Pure existence godbeing in my own awake space,
Self-existent traveler through the quantum cosmos,
Stirred awake as I dream, I know you are real!
Please free me from confusion about self and other!

These are my things. Those are yours.
My thoughts are my thoughts. What thoughts are yours?
This isn’t right! No one is free!
My own thoughts bind me. I am in prison!

Hidden Dragon! Just a touch of the infinite!—
No! Throw me right in! Ignore my cries!
Infinity is freedom! I am always unborn!
The original condition and consciousness remembering!
Nothing is lost! No Quarter! No remorse!

Fire of Life! Fire of Life! Remove the veil!
Fire of Life! Fire of Life! Remove the veil!
Fire of Life! Fire of Life! Remove the veil!

All of these prayers have only one request behind them—please remove the veil that confuses my life and let me know the truth! The advantage of using these prayers to further that desire is that in their form they bypass limiting beliefs about God, which are primarily based upon cultural values rooted in the veil. In these prayers, there is no deity as such because from the point of view of godspace you are your own deity. The veil arises out of godspace; consciousness of godspace arises out of the veil. This is the reality of self-existence. The illusion of your separation from godspace is what makes you unique and “selfish.” In drawing this prayer card, you are being asked to confront the limitations of your mind wherein that illusion resides. The best way to break through the veil of thought is to send this prayer directly into the fire of pure existence—“Throw me right in! Ignore my cries!"

By directing your life energy beyond the finest veils of belief, you draw upon the unquenchable energies of pure existence. If you maintain that desire consciously, you will eventually imbue it with enough of the fire of life that the veil will drop. Your desire becomes the reality because it is the reality! It requires only enough energy to burn through the illusion which you use to hide from yourself. It’s not an easy ride, but if you want examine that inexplicability, go straight to the source! Read this prayer over and over again to bring up the fire! Chant the mantric refrain! Imbue your mind with the fire of life! Pray to the Dragon!
