Star dust. That is what lives within each of us. A divine spark of the vast universal mystery. The Holy Breath is what the ancient Hebrew poets spoke of in Genesis 1 in being created in the image of the Holy, life breathed and blessed as very good.

This was the story of the people, the family, journeying into the Exodus. Where hearing ancient words we can accept different roles that resonate within each of us. Think of this time. Relax and breathe into calmness, let peace wash over you. Allow the room you are in to vanish. Let the sounds of ancient wilderness, beasts, children, families in panic, hoof beats chasing you. Former slave, saved, promised paradise, running, following one once raised by Pharaoh, rescued from a genocide of male children. At the edge of the Red Sea, confronted with selfish absorption (sin) or living out of the star dust (Holy Mystery) within.

Hear the passage three times, each time take time to ponder a question.

Miriam sings a song of victory. The song. Jesus reveals the symbolic character of the journey of Israel from Egypt to Canaam.

1. And Miriam stood before the surging crowd, and casting up her eyes to heaven she sung anew the song of victory:
2. Bring forth the harp, the vina and the lyre; bring forth the highest sounding cymbal, all ye choirs of heaven. Join in the song, the new, new song.
3. The Lord of hosts has stooped to hear the cries of men, and lo, the citadel of Beelzebul is shaking as a leaf before the wind.
4. The sword of Gideon is again unsheathed.
5. The Lord, with his own hand has pulled far back the curtains of the night; the sun of truth is flooding heaven and earth;
6. The demons of the dark, of ignorance and death, are fleeing fast; are disappearing as the dew beneath the morning sun.
7. God is our strength and song; is our salvation and our hope, and we will build anew a house for him;
8. Will cleanse our hearts, and purify their chambers, every one. We are the temple of the Holy Breath.
9. We need no more a tent within the wilderness; no more a temple built with hands.
10. We do not seek the Holy Land, nor yet Jerusalem.
11. We are the tent of God; we are his temple built without the sound of edged tools.
12. We are the Holy Land; we are the New Jerusalem; Allelujah, praise the Lord!
13. And when the song was done the multitudes exclaimed, Praise God.
14. And Jesus said, Behold the way!
15. The sons of men have groped for ages in the darkness of Egyptian night.
16. The Pharaohs of sense have bound them with their chains.
17. But God has whispered through the mists of time and told them of a land of liberty and love.
18. And he has sent his Logos forth to light the way.
19. The Red Sea rolls between the promised land and Egypt’s sands.
20. The Red Sea is the carnal mind.
21. Behold, the Logos reaches out his hand; the sea divides; the carnal mind is reft in twain; the sons of men walk through dry shod.
22. The Pharaohs of sense would stay them in their flight; the waters of the sea return; the Pharaohs of sense are lost and men are free.
23. For just a little while men tread the wilderness of Sin; the Logos leads the way;
24. And when at last men stand upon the Jordan’s brink, these waters stay, and men step forth into their own.

Aquarian Gospel Chapter 110

  1. As you hear the story the first time. See through the heart and eyes of Pharaoh. One possibly raised with Moses who now has stolen “property”. Your anger burns at the terror reaped on your nation by plagues, blinded by the rage of grief that shattered your world view. When in your life have you lived/experienced as Pharaoh? Spend time in that moment of paradigm shattering rage…what did your heart learn? What shaped your soul? Sit with these answers awhile.
  2. As you hear the story a second time, it is your voice ringing out the victory song. A child when you played the oppressor, giving your brother to the Pharaoh’s daughter…rescued and saved…savvy enough to get your own Mum into the palace as Nanny. Now standing at the riverbank you await the true victory you began to parlay years ago, living into love. Surrendering into the divine flow of the star dust. Remember a time, when despite the odds against love and justice, your victory song came out? What changed in your heart in that moment? What shaped your soul? Sit with these answers as you prepare for the third hearing.
  3. Will the Red Sea part? Will you die? Trepidation and fear. Looking back on the familiar pain to live into, or the unknown of release and freedom form the shackles that hold you. As you hear the words a third time, know your Pharaoh truth, know your Miriam victory song. What emerges as the shackles you must shatter today? What must you step into, trusting like the sea it will part letting you be free?

Sit with your riverbank. Are you ready to step out?

Feel the wilderness fall away. Return your breathing to normal as silence reigns. Peace in your heart.

  1. Behold, the Logos reaches out his hand; the sea divides; the carnal mind is reft in twain; the sons of men walk through dry shod.
    22.The Pharaohs of sense would stay them in their flight; the waters of the sea return; the Pharaohs of sense are lost and men are free.
    23. For just a little while men tread the wilderness of Sin; the Logos leads the way;
    24. And when at last men stand upon the Jordan’s brink, these waters stay, and men step forth into their own.

-110:21-24

Are you ready to step forth into your own?

To be finally free of your Pharaoh?
