The ancient documents of the Essenes continue to describe people who knew an even older wisdom of cosmology, astrology, herbal healing and numerology, and who are models of wholistic living for today's disconnected society. Their love of one another and of the Spirit; their harmony with all living things and their understanding of Universal Law stand as timeless teachings for anyone seeking to re-attune to the subtle, natural energies in our world.

An Essene way of life is balanced with biogenic rejuvenation of the earth and the body which involves education and practice and will not be covered here, except to reaffirm their commitment to wheatgrass, trees, soil, water, air and respect for all humanity and the cosmos.

The TREE OF LIFE is a central symbol affirming "as above, so below" which means we are surrounded by forces from the visible world of nature and invisible cosmic world down to the smallest particle. Also "as above" are the limbs of the tree above the ground that bear the fruit that we can see, eat and enjoy and the roots "below" go deeply into the dark, moist earth for nourishment, which we cannot see (except through modern science).

Essenes use many symbols that are universal and understood because they touch and exhilarate centers of life beyond the reach of vocabularies of reason and coercion. As an example: circle represents wisdom; square represents power, triangle represents love. The symbol for human is circle, square, triangle

The microcosmos of the Essenes consists of 14 morning and evening meditations; also called communions which we have adapted to our needs, by eliminating the gender references of male & female, using verbiage that implies one united whole.

  • Friday Evening - The Heavenly Cosmic Energies and I are one.

    By focusing on this statement, we dedicate ourselves to the totality of cosmic laws and to the realization that the universe is a process of continuous creating in which we can contribute our part. The goal is to unite ourselves with the cosmic currents and develop the creative abilities within ourselves to the utmost and learn to use the creative principle in our life and surroundings, acting as a connector of the oceans of cosmic and earthly love. (standing on Earth between "above" and "below")

  • Saturday Morning - The Earthly Nature Energies and I are one.

    We receive the Food of Life for our whole body. This is accomplished by contemplating the different food substances and realizing that the body is formed of the elements of the earth and is nourished with those elements through plant life. We become conscious of the processes of metabolism within us. We learn how to receive and absorb the powerful energies derived from foods and how to conserve those energies in our body, gradually developing the ability to assimilate perfectly. The goal is to establish unity between our physical organism and the nutritive forces of the earth.

  • Saturday Evening - Angel of Eternal Life, descend upon me and give Eternal Life to my spirit.

    The goal is to arouse our intuitive knowledge of the eternity of life in the universe and our own unity with this eternal life and the whole cosmic order. We learn the importance of over coming gravity in the earthly currents of thoughts and freeing ourselves from limiting ideas.

  • Sunday Morning - Angel of Earth, enter my generative organs and regenerate my whole body.

    The purpose is to transform the generative power in life into the regeneration of the human body. There is a power within us similar to the generative powers of nature in the top soil, which creates the vegetation of the earth. This central idea of the Essenes creates more and more abundant life. We realize there is a part of us that is rooted firmly in the earth. It is to this grounded, solid aspect that we deeply bow. The earth is our home and we am blessed. Let us use the wisdom of our senses to understand the earth.

  • Sunday Evening - Angel of Creative Work, descend upon humanity and give abundance to all people.

    This teaches the importance of creative work, an expression of love and its paramount role in our individual evolution. It enables us to absorb energies and power from the creative works of humanity through the Ages. Dedicated to all the great things which have been created by human labor, the great pieces of literature, art, science, philosophy and everything we have created as a superstructure on nature, the great values brought forth by previous generations and inherited by the present one.

    We can be guided to be of invalueable service, yet not attached to being a server. For the tools of service are compassion and humility and these are born in a loving heart which is open enough to take as well as give. Fulfillment and completeness are gifts we give to ourselves. They come from focused labor and excellence as our guide. We see the power that our own acts have on us, and we create a world of joy.

  • Monday Morning - Angel of Life, enter my limbs and give strength to my whole body.

    This teaches us the role of vitality in our well being and makes us conscious of all the innumerable activities of the life force in, around and through us, enabling us to direct it to any part of our body in the intensity required. Dedicated to the life, health and energy of the human organism and that of the whole planet and brings about a dynamic unity between them. All about us are the signs of growth, the signs of new life bursting from containment. We feel this primal urge to cast off limitation and open ourselves to the life forces. No longer must we wait. We share our life with those we love. There is a wholeness of our being that we have come to know. Our lives are the sum of our body, mind, spirit, soul and more. We are immersed in a cosmic ocean of Life which connects our life with All, and We are All.

  • Monday Evening - Peace, peace, peace. Angel of Peace, be always everywhere.

    Our most immediate responsibility is to create peace within ourself and with everything around us. The universal greeting "PEACE BE WITH YOU" is often used.

    Throughout there is movement; there is growth, pulsating to the outer bounds of our potential and we feel full and overflowing. Yet at our center, at the very core of us, there is a quiet place from which guidances comes. As we experience the new life in us bursting its bounds, we are clearly aware of our part in the Plan, that we may prepare ourselves in the fullest expression and be a vehicle for peace.

  • Tuesday Morning - Angel of Joy, descend upon earth and give beauty to all beings.

    Using the faculty of absorbing joy from the beauties of nature, sunrises, sunsets, mountains, flowers, colors, aromas and so on is one of the means by which we can attain inner harmony and serenity. Be conscious of nature's outward and inward thrust and allow your heart to be filled with joy. The colors of your world, the colors of your being, the balance of your life, all these are the love you feel shining upon your spirit."

  • Tuesday Evening - Angel of Power, descend upon my acting body and direct all my acts.

    By becoming receptive to the cosmo-vital forces surrounding us and within us, we can absorb the energy through our nervous system and utilize these energies in every area of our life. The whole universe is a cosmic ocean of life in which currents of cosmic power are continually uniting all forms of life on all planets and connecting us with all other organisms.

  • Wednesday Morning - Angel of Sun, enter my solar center and give the Fire of Life to my whole body.

    The Sun is a great living force in terrestrial nature, an ever present source of energy without which there would be no life on earth, in the ocean or in the atmosphere. Solar rays which do not stop at the surface of the body penetrate the organism, bathing the body and nervous system in the radiation of the Sun and establishing a unity between the self and the Sun.

  • Wednesday Evening - Angel of Love, descend upon my feeling body and purify all my feelings.

    This teaches us the importance and meaning of the superior currents of feeling in ourself and in the surrounding universe. Love is the highest creative feeling. There is a cosmic ocean of love which exists everywhere uniting all forms of life and that life itself is an expression of love. To love one another, truly, without expectation of gain, is to transform the world. When we come from a place of love, when our gift to the world is ourselves rather than what we produce, then every occasion is an opportunity to add to the positive energy flow.

  • Thursday Morning - Angel of Water, enter my blood and give the Water of Life to my whole body.

    Contemplate on all forms of water; rivers, creeks, rain, the sap of trees and plants and so on, establishing as a living reality the unity between the waters of the body and the waters of the planet. Realizing the health of our bodies depends upon the quality of our blood and in like manner the health of the physical environment depends upon the quality of the water available.

  • Thursday Evening - Angel of Wisdom, descend upon my thinking body and enlighten all my thoughts.

    Develop an ability to create powerful, harmonious thought currents and attain intuitive knowledge and wisdom by tuning in to all thought currents in the Universe and the thought of all great thinking in the past and present. Thought is held to be both cosmic and a cerebral function. When we ready ourselves to remember the knowledge of all things, then the knowledge is there to be known. We honor the stream of wisdom that guides each living thing. We see that this wisdom is available to the extent that we prepare ourselves to receive it.

  • Friday Morning - Angel of Air, enter my lungs and give the Breath of Life to my whole body.

    Become conscious of the dynamic unity between air and life and that respiration is the link between the organism and the cosmos, that where there is life there is breath. Thus the atmosphere in surrounding nature and the air within the body has a stupendous role in health and vitality. The inbreath of our life-force draws the world to us. And as the outbreath streams from us, we share our life with others. All is One.

  • "People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. I don't think that's what we're really seeking.
