Millennial Vows from Chris King

The following prayer is to offer back the respect that which was stolen. It is not just a prayer for the Earth Goddess Eve, nor is it to some 'lesser being' than the male 'creator God' of the cosmos, but to the immanent "Indwelling" manifest in all life, to future-directed ethics for the biosphere's germ line and its unfolding, and to Wisdom consciousness and Quantum chaos. Even as the wind blows.

There are many more beautiful variants. Carol Geary has a neat one. It is not the exact words, but the principle that counts. Many women have chanted its essence on moonlit nights. It is compensating for, and correcting the balance lost, between woman and man from the Fall, through patriarchal dominion, as wave is to particle, as chaos is to order, as body is to mind, as ovum is to sperm, as the Garden is to the Kingdom, so is this simple prayer of forgiving to the Lord's prayer in evoking the immortal age.

Note: Chris defines parousia as "Parousia is a name for the Second Coming of Christ, but the truth is it is the "New Age" unveiling the Bride of biology - the immortal age of us all achieving cytoplasmic sustainability on this verdant planet. It is the shared age of visionary democracy. We will reach to the stars too, but in love of life, to protect the unfolding, not to play Darth Vader with nukes."

The Parousia Prayer of Immortality

Our Mother which art on Earth
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy Garden come, thy will be done
on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give is this day unfolding life
and forgive us our hubris of dominion.
Illuminate us with Wisdom
for the fruit of your vision.
For thine is the Garden,
the immortal Garment,
and the Tree of Life,
for ever and ever. Amen.

The Gnostic Invocation

Dear Immortal Eve, I humbly apologise to you
for the curse of God and the sins of Man,
and for the desecration of the Garden.
Trample the veil of shame
and put on the garments of salvation,
as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
We are here to reveal that which is concealed.
Things hidden since the foundation of the world.
The Garden will reward you.
The Tree bears twelve manner of monthly fruit.
The fruit is good for food, pleasant to the eyes,
and to be desired to make one wise.
And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
It is my gift to you in apology for the Fall.
In true at-one-ment of the twain.
When the "two become one" again.
