Wisdom of the Ancients: We are blessed Children of Light in the Heart of the Earthly Mother (and Heavenly Father)

From the Essene Gospel of Peace, Book Two

"Blessed is the Child of Light
Who knoweth his Earthly Mother
For she is the giver of life.
Know that thy Mother is in thee,
And thou art in her.
She bore thee
And she giveth thee life.
She it was who gaveth thee thy body,
And to her shalt thou one day
Give it back again,
Know that the blood which runs in thee
Is born of the blood
Of thy Earthly Mother
Her blood falls from the clouds,
Leaps up from the womb of the earth,
Bubbles in the brooks of the mountains,
Flows wide in the rivers of the plains,
Sleeps in the lakes,
Rages mightily in the tempestuous seas,
Know that the air which though dost breathe
Is born of the breath
Of thy Early Mother.
Her breath is azure
In the heights of the heavens,
Soughs in the tops of the mountains,
Whispers in the leaves of the forest,
Billows over the cornfields,
Slumbers in the deep valleys,
Burns hot in the desert.
Know that the hardness of thy bones
Is born of the bones
Of thy Earthly Mother,
She whose flesh waxeth yellow and red
In fruits of the trees.
The light of thy eyes,
The hearing of thy ears,
These are born
Of the colors and the sounds
Of thy Earthly Mother,
Which doth enclose thee about,
As the waves of the sea enclose a fish,
As the eddying air a bird,
I tell thee in truth,
Man is the Son
Of the Earthly Mother,
And from her did the Son of Man
Receive his whole body,
Even as the body of the newborn babe
Is born of the womb of his mother,
I tell thee truly,
Thou art one with the Earthly Mother;
She is in thee, and thou art in her,
Of her wert thou born,
In her dost thou live,
And to her shalt thou return again.
Keep, therefore, her laws,
For none can live long
Neither be happy,
But he who honors his Earthly Mother,
And keepeth her laws.
For thy breath is her breat,
Thy blood is her blood,
Thy bone is her bone,
Thy flesh is her flesh,
Thy eyes and thy ears
Are her eyes and her ears.
He who hath found peace with his Earthly Mother
Shall never know death,
Know this peace with thy mind,
Desire this peace with thy heart,
Fulfill this peace with thy body."

The world is sacred....the world is my body. The world is perfect, I must serve it.

"The world is sacred.
It can't be improved.
If you tamper with it, you'll ruin it.
If you treat it like an object, you'll lose it." 
- from the Tao Te Ching as translated by Stephen Mitchell
Byron Katie elaborates on this verse "A Thousand Names for Joy - Living in Harmony With the Way Things Are." She says:
"The world is perfect. As you question your mind, this become more and more obvious. Mind changes, and as a result, the world changes. A clear mind heals everything that needs to be healed. It never be fooled into believing that there is one speck out of order.
"But some people take the insight that the world is perfect and make it into a concept, and then they conclude that there's no need to get involved in politics or social action. That's separation. If someone came to you and said, 'I'm suffering. Please help me,' would you answer, 'You're perfect just the way you are,' and turn away? Our heart naturally responds to people and animals in need.
"Realization has no value until it's lived. I would travel to the ends of the earth for the sake of one person who is suffering. The desperate, the hopeless, and unenlightened cells of my own body. It's my own body I'm talking about - the body of the world is my body."

God(dess) becomes the world...

"If the world did not exist in the form of consciousness as undifferentiated from the light of I-ness, how could that world come, out of that consciousness, into being without such requisites as material, etc.? Because according to the revealed text 'Just as the big tree of Banyan is found potentially in it's own seed, in the same way is this whole world, of the movable and immovable, in the heart-radical' and according to the foresighted argument 'of the Lord dwelling inside the self' this world is located in Him appearing as identical with Him.

Hence this God consciousness evolves the world as a materialisation of Her own nature."
- Spandaninaya
