The Lord's Prayer

As Understood by One Rosaecrucian
 
[From The American Rosae Crucis Summer Quarterly 1920]
   
 
OUR FATHER
 
The real I AM behind all personality. The Master Jesus said: "I and my Father are one." So, also, I am one with the Father. One manifested point of the Divine Mind focused thru' this personality, as sunlight is thru' a lens.
 
WHICH ART IN HEAVEN
 
Heaven is a condition of being, not a location in space. Again the words of the Master: "The Kingdom of Heaven is within you." As you attune the vibration of your consciousness, so will you pass thru' the different Mansions of your Father's house.
 
HOLY BE THY NAME
 
The Lost Word, the source of all manifestation, the Word made flesh. As stated in the Gospel of St. John, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." Whereby we perceive that the Word is the vibratory manifestation of God,--His Name.
 
THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN
 
The great Cosmic or Divine Mind is infallible. It is only when our objective personality tries to interfere with the working of the Divine Mind that, in the world of outer expression, inharmony becomes manifest. As soon as we learn to let the Cosmic Consciousness express uninterruptedly thru' us, harmony will prevail.
 
GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD
 
"Ask and ye shall receive, knock and it shall be opened unto you." The bread of life, the food of the soul, the wisdom and the understanding which gives the soul growth, is ours for the asking, for the taking, if we look for it and ask for it in the right way: not only by way of worldly knowledge, but by attunement, by concentration; thus entering in at the door which leads out to universal truth.
 
FORGIVE OUR DEBTS AS WE FORGIVE OUR DEBTORS
 
"Judge not, that thou be not judged." Look at our fellow men in all humility, remembering that we are all one with the Father; and as we help them to ascend the planes of consciousness, so also shall we be lifted up. Love one another, which can only come by forgiveness and tolerance. How can we criticize another's errors, when we have not yet learned to live without erring? "Let him who is without sin cast the first stone."
 
LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION BUT DELIVER US FROM EVIL
 
May the God Consciousness in me, the still small voice of Conscience, never be silenced by the clamor and discords of daily material life, and may our Conscience be as a guiding star, bright and inviolate, leading us safely thru' this worldly maze.
 
FOR THINE IS THE KINGDOM, THE POWER AND THE GLORY
 
By the manifested Word the Kingdoms of God are shown to us, and it is brought to our understanding that all of the power, energy and life force around us comes from, and returns to, the One Source.
 
FOREVER AND EVER
 
In the Divine Mind, the Infinite, there can be nothing finite,--no beginning or ending.
 
AMEN
 
The mystic word, the Amen of all power, the vibrations of which, when correctly said, arouse into mighty action the mystic, Divine forces which attune man with God and God's creation. The Master Jesus was called "The Amen" by His disciples, because He personified the mystic power of that word, and others before Jesus were called Amen, and others may attain the power that lies hidden therein.
