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."
