Conferring Grace & Baraka

by Stewart Bitkoff

Age Group: Adult


Herein is related a tale
As old as time itself.

Once there was a King
Who eyes sparkled more
Than the brightest stars.
Love of all things made his/her heart
A fountain of wisdom and joy.

This magnificent King
Had a son/daughter.
As time passed
This son filled with curiosity
And sought to grow in the garden of life.
The King sensing it was time for leaving the nest
Called the young man/woman to his side.
And with much sadness the King spoke:
My son/daughter you are ready to leave.
This I can feel in my heart.
You are of age
And now I must tell you
Of your heritage and responsibility.

As you travel through the land
You meet good and evil.
The good will taste of Divine Love
And evil of the Deceiver.

Each is weak and alone;
But when we remember God’s Love
And let it shine on our heart
We are as strong as the mighty river.
Our weakness is the Deceiver’s strength.
If we ask the Father/Mother
He/she will guide us Home.

Remember, each shall be called
To answer for their travels and service.
So journey on my son/daughter
And on the other side
we shall meet again.
Here taste my caress,
May it guide you in God’s Service.

Then the King
Placed a tender kiss of blessing
On his son/daughter’s forehead.

For centuries, this tale
Has been told to those
Who are beginning their travel
as full, conscious beings.

For each there is an hour of departure;
And the Grace or Baraka of the Path
lifts them up; protecting their journey.

Then, the real work and service begins.
