How we long for peace in the world, and to this end we pray for peace, somehow expecting that it is something we can be granted. First of all, Peace is not something that comes from without, nor is it an absence of war and hostility. It emanates from within, and requires that we are working in the Light in all levels of upliftment and redemption of the thoughtforms on this planet.
For the most part humanity is focused in the lower part of his/her being, the physical, and the intelligence that is connected with the human brain. Key 112 tells us that we have to work with the higher consciousness, and that requires faith, as we read in verses 60-63:
“60 The Child of God puts on the breastplate of faith because he walks in this world, which will not accept evidence of higher truths and which will attack him if he tries to raise its consciousness and the consciousness of the masses of this world.61 The Child of God must wear, however, not the breastplate of hostility and violence, but faith. 62 The true Sons of Light will always know that there is a spirit of restoration within the nature of the higher faith which will continue the work of the Overself body and shall issue forth as many garments as necessary for the accomplishments of the works of the Lord. 63 The more that you pour out the gifts of the spirit, the more the spirit awakens your senses so that you do not have to sleep in the consciousness of death which is before the rebirth of Light.”
Prayer is not simply saying great words. To be totally effective, it requires that we offer up all the spiritual energies within our being to energize the thoughtforms we are expressing, putting on the “breastplate of righteousness.” The breastplate connects with the heart chakra, so the energy of love and the highest ethics are enlisted. “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” In the glossary of The Book of Knowledge: The Keys of Enoch under “Prayer/Meditation” we read:
“When a thought or idea is concentrated upon, it tends towards action and self-realization. However, when a person wishes to accomplish something but does not believe he will succeed, the harder he tries the more impossible it becomes. When a thought or idea of a ‘revealed sacred name’ is linked with emotion, it will surmount and supersede any other consciousness suggestion. Of the myriad forms of prayer/meditation there are five general practices that should be kept in mind according to Enoch:
1. Hold fast to the holy way of life.
2. In your dealings, honor all with the radiance of Love.
3. Look within and look without and see yourself as your own bridge between heaven and earth.
4. Behold the palace of the universe and the myriad spheres of the organic balance of nature.
5. Know that you can always rejoice in the Godhead and in the myriad radiations of the Living Light.
Enoch is also saying to us, blessed be you who understand the words of his scroll and inscribe within your heart,Tiphereth Adonai (the Beauty of the Lord). And blessed be you who inscribe within your homes the songs of the Lord, the Tephillim, the songs and hymns of blessing, for there shall be only a joy that shall not pass away. For the good news is good because it does not die, but lives eternally. And the songs that are eternal bring joy to earth because they are here to raise the earth into the heavens.
Thus, ultimately it is the relationship between the Family of Light in the heavens and upon the earth that allows the other dimensions to come to this planet on behalf of the awakened sons and daughters of Abraham; the awakened sons and daughters of Adam; and finally, the awakened sons and daughters of Enoch, for they know like those that preceded them, there have always been wars, tragedies, destruction, but those who are the light of the Seal of the Covenant of the Great Ascension will see the greater restoration of all things.
And now in that greater peace of the Shelomith Shalom, the peace that comes with the initiation to know that we are one among many; the peace that comes with the initiation that knows and understands the Tree of Life in all its glory; that awaits the nations of the earth who choose the way of Light and upward ascent; the peace that cometh with all understanding in the forgiveness and in the unity of the covenant that is eternal, may we be a light unto the nations. And may the Ain Soph Or be with us for the dove has returned. And now the dove has landed and the dove speaks and the way is prepared. ‘Nachamu, Nachamu Ammi Yomar Eliahu,’ Comfort ye, comfort ye my people sayeth the Lord.
