Deepening Freedom – The Aramaic Prayer of Jesus

Deepening Freedom*

-applying the technology of the Aramaic Prayer of Jesus for releasing the

inner obstacles to living and enjoying our Soul’s purpose.

Two thousand years ago, Jesus taught his disciples a powerful mantra prayer that was intended to heal and transform them, providing support for becoming their most authentic, self-actualized, Christed-selves.  This prayer has been called The Lord’s Prayer.

Unfortunately, through centuries of bad translation (and political maneuvering), the full intent and power of this prayer has been lost. Not anymore! Thanks to modern-day translation techniques, we now have a better idea of what Jesus actually taught his disciples.  Below is one example of how we might better understand the Lord’s Prayer from the original Aramaic language that Jesus spoke:

Aramaic to English Prayer of Jesus

Affirmative

O thou from whom the breath of life flows,

and is present in all forms of vibration and light.

Your Divine presence lives within us.

Your counsel rules our lives, opening our intention for co-creation.

Your one desire then acts with ours,

as it is in all light, so shall it be in all forms.

You grant what we need each day in bread and insight,

sustenance and support for our growing lives.

You untie us from our own limiting actions

as we untie others from the strands we hold of theirs.

You free us from what holds us back from our true purpose,

ensuring that surface things do not delude us,

From you is born all ruling will, the power and life to do,

the song that beautifies all – from age to age it renews.

These statements are the ground from which all my actions grow.

Amen.

Compare this to the traditional Lord’s Prayer:

The Lord’s Prayer (traditional)

Our Father who art in heaven,

Hallowed be Thy name.

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day, our daily bread,

Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us,

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory,

Forever and ever.

Amen.

Thanks also to the inspiration of Neal Douglas-Klotz and the dedicated work of Lauri Ann Lumby, OM, MATS, we now have an idea of the means through which Jesus intended this prayer to be used – as a powerful mantra technique for healing the inner obstacles, fears and unhealed wounds that are preventing us from living a life of Authentic Freedom – a life in which are finding meaning and purpose in our own unique giftedness – both for the sake of our own fulfillment and for the sake of the betterment of the world.  Applying the original technology of the Aramaic Prayer of Jesus empowers us to use our gifts to bring about powerful, dramatic and positive change in the world.

In short: applying the original technology of the Aramaic Prayer of Jesus changes fear into love and brings heaven to earth – “on earth as it is in heaven.”
