How We Close Our Prayers

Close with a moment of quiet

Remembering our teachers inspirations influences

All our relations

Our beloveds

 

Take your thumb now and run it up and down your heart-line

Now take your hands and put them together against your chest like anjali mudra

Then take your left hand and set it within your right hand as in the Zohar

Feel your physical and spiritual union on your heart-line

 

Spend time in gratitude for all that you have received – given – received

 

Hold your hands away from you in a posture of blessing

Palms out

Spread your fingers

 

Now turn your palms up like the five-petalled rose

The cup of blessing, the opening intention of the Zohar

 

Drop your hands

Leave a moment for the silent expectation for peace

 

We are starving for it    real peace    true peace

Peace of the near and peace of the far

The upper worlds and lower worlds will find each other

Take a deep breath

Say ah – mein.
