The Priesthood of God
The sacred power that lies within – The priesthood of God – Creating sacred moments
for those you love – “That which has its birth in God is yours by right of birth”
– Let the Song of God light the way – The things of God are subtle and born of spirit
– “I am Areta, eternal Mother, Supreme and Sovereign”
1 Come now and seize this moment for now is God most near, dwelling close beside
your heart to fill you up with wonder, being eager to prove for you a wise and holy
counselor; always ready to give you guidance in the living of your life.
2 For now the power is in your hand to make your life most sacred, to stand yourself
as one endowed, as one who walks with God; empowered within by the glory beyond to
reflect that holy light; to shine most bright within the darkness and fill the world
3 Rise up now and seize the prize which I would happy give you, let go your fears,
set free your doubts and open wide your heart; for here within the great eternal
do many Gods await, ever hopeful with outstretched arms to receive you once again.
4 Consider then that sacred power which lies most deep within you, a power which
is born of God, a power wrapped in priesthood; for this priesthood was given you
at the moment of your birth, waiting quietly deep within, eager that you should use
5 What then is this priesthood which waits to be revealed? What is the power within
your soul that would make you one with God? How must you live, how must you speak,
how must you rightly act, to awaken within you the Light of God and fill the world
6 For the priesthood of God can no man give, neither is it appointed that any church
should guard it or bind it with restrictions; for the priesthood which comes from
God is found in you already and lies most deep within, a hidden treasure within the
soul which waits upon your faith.
7 This then is the power of priesthood that you should be enabled to create some
sacred moment for the sake of those you love, which sacred moment proves the power
which draws forth the presence of God the Mother and the Father.
8 For the power of priesthood does not command but loves instead, neither does it
seek to judge or punish, but to heal and quick restore; proving itself not as something
exclusive but rather as that which quick includes even all who would embrace the
things which come from God.
9 Think not therefore that the priesthood of God is bound by law, neither can any
church constrain it, to keep it in their power; for that which has its birth in God
is yours by right of birth, becoming itself the tie which binds you closely unto
God, having as its only mandate the creation of sacred moments.
10 For the world needs most that sacred moment where God is deeply felt, to be themselves
inspired by goodness, to be themselves uplifted and to feel themselves as blest,
a sacred moment where God draws near to touch the heart and mind.
11 Such then is made the priesthood which comes from God above, not come from men
nor come from church as others quick would tell you, but comes instead from deep
within where the heart and soul do meet, lying there within yourself for you to quick
take hold and draw to you the heart of God through the making of sacred moments.
12 If then you would awaken the priesthood of your soul then take you now this Song
of God and learn it deeply well, committing to your memory the words of life and
joy, becoming yourself as one made holy by seizing hold of God.
13 Let the Song of God be for you as daily bread and the breath of all your life,
to fill you up with holy counsel, to light the way before, to lift you up above the
storms which often rage about, placing you safe upon that shore where the light of
God does shine.
14 Let it prove itself a mighty river which flows within your soul, till you yourself
become the river filled with life abundant, rushing on and ever flowing within the
ocean of my dreams, to become yourself as one with God in the living of your life.
15 Prove yourself as one most wise and in my words find strength, for the clouded
mind does not see, neither can it know that the things of God are born of spirit
and are made by God most subtle, requiring from those who would partake an eager
and joyful faith, opening up before your eyes the wonder beyond all wonders.
16 Embrace therefore with hopeful heart this Song which Heaven sings, and make your
life become the song which moves the heart of God; and song to Song the Heavens move
like lovers in a dance, you in God and God in you forever and anon.
17 I am Areta, eternal Mother, Supreme and Sovereign, the singer of songs within
the dreams of God; weaving through most subtle thoughts a deep and great design,
sudden light of inspiration, I touch and gently guide, ever seeking that greater
oneness filled with light and life and love.
18 To whom then shall I speak? Who will my mystery touch? Who among so many children
will set aside their lesser self, and with an eager, humble mind embrace the heart
of all my wisdom to make it as their own?
19 To such a one as this alone would I my heart reveal, being myself most ever hopeful
to uplift what now seems fallen, to restore with grace the light of God in a world
now dark and dreary.
20 Deep within my memories stir, and oft I do reflect, when long ago so far away,
my lover sweetly kissed, and in the touching of our lips, his breath he passed to
me, and gave to me his very life, giving birth to joyful hope filled with dreams
21 So come my child with open heart and in my soul find rest, kiss me now upon my
lips and of my breath partake, and in your heart shall there arise the song of all
my dreams, until at last we sweet embrace to be as one forever.
