5 Cosmic Energy

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 fill me with energy! The Dragon’s breath!

Make of me a valiant spirit!
Martial me naked onto the path of self-knowing,
Give me weapons to slay the enemies of truth,
The Herculean endurance of a warrior’s heart!

Hidden Dragon! I defy the final defenses!
Your fiery breath I drink deep into my heart!
Fool me no more with defeatist thinking!
No boundaries can stop me! I will make no peace!

Fire of Life! Fire of Life! Burn in me!
Fire of Life! Fire of Life! Burn in me!
Fire of Life! Fire of Life! Burn in me!


Cosmic life is God. Personal life is God. You are God in an individual package of which there are infinite numbers of individual packages. At the core of your being and of all beings, there is one burning fire, the fire of life, which draws upon its own self for life energy eternally. This is self-existence, a condition of the core that gives fire infinite possibilities for expression. Imagine now that you are a being of the core, a warrior for truth, a being so free and independent that at every moment all things are possible. Fire comes out of your eyes as you scan the world for courses of action. You have a sword in your hands with which to slay the enemies of truth. Your hair is a cascade of yellow, blue and white flames. No ghosts surround you. At any given moment you can be male or female. You are sex itself, the tension and the completion. You are pure existence with an edge, looking every instant into the chasm of non-existence, daring annihilation, affirming life.

From the densest realms of life, where you confound yourself with your own existence, it is time for you to call upon this being of fire, your own godself! Draw out of your fiery core the knowledge of love and truth. Don’t be afraid just to exist, to gain power over all things in your life and to use them fearlessly, tearing away the veil between life and death. There are no obstacles that cannot be eliminated with the godbeing’s intent—your intent imbued with the fire of life!

When you draw this card, you are asking for more life energy than your personal needs require. Should you be able to take on this energy, much in your life will change—jobs, relationships, personal beliefs, behaviors. Even your physical form could change, depending upon how much you are able to assimilate. This energy is given only to transform you into godbeing status, to transmute all action into cosmic action, and to eliminate all the usual motivations that govern human events. Living in the fires of pure existence is no mean feat. Only a godbeing can do it. Meditate on this possibility and the energy will stir. Meditate on it daily and it will take you in.

Advanced Commentary
The voice in this prayer is standing before the Hidden Dragon fire and has the fortitude to take on the Dragon at the absolute edge of annihilation. It wrestles into existence the form that will enable it to function as directly out of the Dragon as possible. This non-human voice is cosmic energy with intent. The prayer is a plea that rides the sharpest edge between pure existence as “it” and pure existence as insanity. The Dragon as itself is that insanity.

The mere existence of this voice on that edge already makes it a “valiant spirit.”  Its “nakedness” is the surge of pure existence about to particularize a Hidden Dragon seed into something; it does not mind that the possibilities are infinite and that there is no order or purpose behind any manifestation. That “not minding” is its only protection from insanity and requires a “Herculean endurance” to maintain.

As long as it does not break through the final defenses, it can defy them all it wants; in fact, the defiance itself is its real strength. As it takes on more boundaries in its manifestation, this voice sweeps aside all limiting “thinking.” It will never allow the other possibilities of manifestation, particularly the desire for peace, to overcome its reality as an absolute flame of pure existence. In its reality, peace is defeat. Without this fire, no other seed possibility can manifest. It is the seed of seeds.
