The Formless One is God of all or not God at all.

{Instruction: Let your encounter with this prayer be experiential. Say it aloud. At the end of this prayer you are invited to experience the "Mutuality Meditation" and read "Some Call It Et Cetera; I Call It God."}

O gracious God, Creator, and Universal Father, we pray for peace. We thank You for Akhenaten who was born in Africa circa 1388 B.C., and became the first enlightened man of recorded history, the first monotheist, the first pacifist, the first democrat, the first humanitarian, a philosopher, reformer and lover of music. He taught us now to practice peace.

His given name Amenhotep, in the Greek, means "the peace of Amen." The name which he chose was Akhenaten which means "Aten is satisfied." On the front of his coffin he is called "Akhenaten, the Beautiful Child of the Living Aten." Aten is the Father of Mankind. Unlike Moses whose God was the God of Israel, Akhenaten's God was the Universal God and the Father of all people. More than a thousand years before Jesus was incarnated he taught that God loves everyone, that humans should love each other and live peaceably with all people.

In all history and romance, there has never been a man who loved a woman more devotedly than Akhenaten loved Nefertiti his wife. He shared with her fully, his religion, his honors and his life.

Akhenaten abandoned cultural beliefs, rejected traditions, and forms of religon that did not and could not conform with the Formless One. He was the King of Upper and Lower Egypt and ran his government on the principle of Love. Akhenaten was champion par excellence of peace. He taught that no longer was God to be considered as Jehovah, Yahweh, Adonis or Amen-Ra, but as the One Universal God.

O Universal Father, with the knowledge Akhenaten gave to history more than three thousand years ago we can now envision and imagine oursleves practicing peace. We can emulate him and be the people who promote peace and love.

O God, make us instruments of your peace. Help us to reject those things that do not make for peace such as war, traditions, beliefs, race prejudice and form religion. Grant that we see others as You see them and love them as You love them. Let us be aware that Aten is in the slave, even the humblest serf is a participant in divinity. Let us love powerfully.

O Universal and Loving Father we know that we are your children, that You make no distinction for family, class, position or achievements, that You are present and mingling with all on equal terms.

In this time, when religious strife and wars prevail, grant that all people will receive afresh Akhenaten's message of peace and give all to love.

Grant that we humans be the song of peace and a world symphony, that sings enthusiastically and resoundingly the rhapsody of peace.

This is our prayer in the name of the One Universal God.

And so it is. Amen.

The Mutuality Meditation

{Instruction: Before you verbalize this meditation sit quietly with both feet on the floor. Take three breaths, inhaling deeply and exhaling slowly.
Now, say aloud...}

Om--- Om--- Om--- .
I am meditating.
It is quiet within me
and all is calm.
My senses are asleep
and I am in the depth of my
subconscious.
I am fully surrendered
to the only Cosmic Power there is.
I am at peace... I am at peace... I am at peace.
Om--- Om--- Om--- .

{Instruction: Now sit quietly with your eyes closed for seven minutes.)
__________________________________

Some Call It Et Cetera; I Call It God"

Some call It et cetera... et cetera... et cetera. I call It God.

Out of nothingness came beingness - the universe, earth, water, sky, stars, moon and sun; followed by plants, fowls and animals, including man, the masterpiece of Genesis;...
Some call it Evolution. I call it God.

Masters mastering themselves; Jesus, Moses, Buddha, Mohammed, Akhenaten, Zoroaster, Confucius;
Sacred Books: the Bible, Torah, Koran, Bhagavad Gita;
Faiths: Christianity, Judalism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam;
The spiritual essence within every man that transcends all Faiths and engenders meaning in livingness;... Some call it Religion, I call It God.

Listen to the words of Jesus, "The Father and I are one; I pray that they all may be one, even as the Father and I are one."... Some call it Joint-Heirs' Inheritance; I call it God.

The Creator of the created, observing His own handiwork said, "And it was good...very good."
Some take g-o-d out of good and call it zero; I take zero out of good and call it God.
