Essene Prayer Said by the Virgin Mary
Within the Most High, my soul blossoms,Leaps for joy at the sight of the ascendant path.What is on high came to meet what is below,And the Most High has impregnated my soul through his radiant look.Out of all the generations, mine is blissful,For the Almighty did great things for me;He impregnated my soul.Holy is his name, through the centuries runs his blessingFor those who, because of love, remain faithful to Him.Sublime and untouched is the Most High,Almighty is the power of his arm;He scatters the proud, destroys those who only think of themselves,Turns down the throne of those who only believe in their own power,And lifts the humble, the simple, the pure and loving hearts up to his Kingdom.He showers with his gifts those who remain silent before him.The Most High never gives up his children who serve him with wisdom and love. Amen. (Gospel according to St. Luke 1.46,55).Prayer, © Copyright by Annie Lauro.It’s an ancient word, a prayer said by the Virgin Mary. It was not only said by her, but also by all the women who were pregnant in the Essene community. Actually, one must become aware that the Essene, Nazarene community gave a communal Teaching, a Teaching for the entire humanity, and that the Virgin Mary was not regarded as a superior woman. She had important responsibilities, but she was not regarded as a woman other than an other woman. All the women who were expecting were respected and practiced the same Teachings than the Virgin Mary.“Nazarene” means “consecrated to God”, and also “the one who knows the hidden things”. This universal brotherhood, which is not characteristic of the Jewish people, knew the secrets of the impregnation of the soul, and regarded the fact that a woman was pregnant as something deeply mystical. They didn’t fix their attention on the fact a woman was expecting; for them, the woman represented a much higher secret than the woman as human being. For them, the woman represented the soul, the hidden soul, the pure soul, the virgin soul, and also the Earth—the Earth which is like a soul, reflection of the universal soul, in which all the souls (for example, the souls of the flowers, of the trees, of the animals, all the souls, even the souls of the angels) can appear as a unity of one same substance, which is the universal soul. This substance is like impregnated by rays of the Very-High, like rays of the sun. This soul was called “Ma” in the ancient mysteries, and gave the name “Maya” -- that is, the great illusion; it gave also the name “Mary”: “Ry”, “Ra”, or “Re” is the Ray of the universal Mother.So, in this Essene brotherhood-sisterhood, the woman, and notably the pregnant woman, was regarded, not only as a pregnant woman, but as the symbol, the writing, and the hieroglyph of the mysteries of the entire cosmos, and even of the mysteries of Universe and evolution. All the secrets, the secrets of Isis and of the woman were contained in the pregnant woman.St. John, who was Lazarus the Essene, reveals these secrets in the Book of Revelation when a being comes and tells him:
