Theme: Love Yearns.
like a gentle spinning wheel,
Inside my Master’s room,
Gratitude and harmony,
do strain around the loom.
Love for Man with every turn,
Is felt by bride and groom,
and as the wheel does spin its yarn,
old maidens in their bloom.
Never stopping ever weaving,
The loving wheel goes round,
Quilting good for every hour,
with blessings most profound,
Autumn winds and vanities.
Drown out many sounds.
Creeping maids and innocence.
Bring tears of age and frown,
the pedalled wheel continues on
Its sound is ever present,
exchanging gloom for happy days,
laments for every pleasence.
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High.
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
Father Mother, encompassing all.
2 I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
Love yearns for purity of thought
4 He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his jfaithfulness is a shield and buckler.
5 You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
There is none like you in whom I have my being
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
Infinite, without number
8 You will only look with your eyes
and see the recompense of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place
the Most High, who is my refuge.
10 no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
no plague come near your tent.
Structure of Truth and Love
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways.
12 On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the adder;
the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.
Defender of Spiritual Truth.
14 “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he knows my name.
Cause and Creator
15 When he calls to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
Immortal Harmonious Love.
Scientific Translation the Hail Mary (Ave Maria) Prayer, written by me:
Hail Father Mother,
Ever With Us
Ever Blessing Man
with the Christ
Tender and Strong
With Grace for Today
Infinite Love and Power
Taken from Science and health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy
Our Father which art in heaven,
Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious,
Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy kingdom is come; Thou art ever-present.
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Enable us to know, — as in heaven, so on earth, —
God is omnipotent, supreme.
Give us this day our daily bread;
Give us grace for to-day; feed the famished affections;
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And Love is reﬂected in love;
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil;
And God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth
us from sin, disease, and death.
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
For God is inﬁnite, all-power, all Life, Truth, Love,
over all, and All.
The definition of Trinity (Glory be etc…prayer) from Judge Hanna, CS journal July 1915.
“In response to a request, it was the writer’s privilege to receive from Mrs. Eddy a definition of the Trinity which has never been published in the exact words in which this one is couched. Feeling that it will be helpful in connection with the purpose of this article, this definition is here given: “Father is man’s divine Principle, Love. Son is God’s man —His image or spiritual likeness. Holy Ghost is Divine Science, the Messiah or Comforter. Jesus in the flesh was the prophet or wayshower to Life, Truth, and Love, and out of the flesh Jesus was the Christ, the spiritual idea, or image and likeness of God.” ”
A Psalm of David.
1 Blessed be the Lord my strength,
which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:
2 my goodness, and my fortress;
my high tower, and my deliverer;
my shield, and he in whom I trust;
who subdueth my people under me.

3 Lord, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him!
or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!

5 Bow thy heavens, O Lord, and come down:
touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them:
shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.
Imparting Angels of Truth, Truth which destroys all falsities.
7 Send thine hand from above;
rid me, and deliver me out of great waters,
from the hand of strange children;
8 whose mouth speaketh vanity,
and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
One Lord (mind) one faith, one baptism
9 I will sing a new song unto thee, O God:
upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.
10 It is he that giveth salvation unto kings:
who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword.
Peace is given by You, here, now
11 Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity,
and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:
12 that our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth;
that our daughters may be as corner stones,
polished after the similitude of a palace:
One cornerstone, Love, building all real things
13 that our garners may be full, affording all manner of store:
that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:
14 that our oxen may be strong to labour;
that there be no breaking in, nor going out;
that there be no complaining in our streets.
15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case:
yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord.
My Beloved, my Provider

Section 1: Bible Psalm 40 1-4
40 I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.
4 Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

Wrong-doer should suffer
1 So the sick through their beliefs have induced their own
diseased conditions. The great difference between vol-3
untary and involuntary mesmerism is that voluntary
mesmerism is induced consciously and
should and does cause the perpetrator to suffer, while self-6
mesmerism is induced unconsciously and by his mistake
a man is often instructed. In the first instance it is understood
that the difficulty is a mental illusion, while in the
9 second it is believed that the misfortune is a material effect.
The human mind is employed to remove the illusion in
one case, but matter is appealed to in the other. In real-12
ity, both have their origin in the human mind, and can be
healed only by the divine Mind.

12 Answer. — They are. They refer to one absolute God.
They are also intended to express the nature, essence, and
wholeness of Deity. The attributes of God are justice,

Section 3 Bible Mark 16 1-7
1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
3 And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?
4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
7 But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.

True estimate of God’s messenger
Heaven represents harmony, and divine Science interprets
the Principle of heavenly harmony. The great
12 miracle, to human sense, is divine Love, and
the grand necessity of existence is to gain the
true idea of what constitutes the kingdom of
15 heaven in man. This goal is never reached while we
hate our neighbor or entertain a false estimate of anyone
whom God has appointed to voice His Word. Again,
18 without a correct sense of its highest visible idea, we can
never understand the divine Principle. The botanist must
know the genus and species of a plant in order to classify
21 it correctly. As it is with things, so is it with persons.
Abuse of the motives and religion of St. Paul hid from
view the apostle’s character, which made him equal to
24 his great mission. Persecution of all who have
spoken something new and better of God has
not only obscured the light of the ages, but has been fatal
27 to the persecutors. Why? Because it has hid from
them the true idea which has been presented. To misunderstand
Paul, was to be ignorant of the divine idea he
Section 4 Bible Acts 17 23-27
23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions*, I found an altar with this* inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
24 God that made the world and all things therein*, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever* therefore will be* a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?
6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

Nearness of Deity
Accompanying this scientific consciousness was another
revelation, even the declaration from heaven, su-15
preme harmony, that God, the divine Principle
of harmony, is ever with men, and they are
His people. Thus man was no longer regarded as a mis-18
erable sinner, but as the blessed child of God. Why?
Because St. John’s corporeal sense of the heavens and
earth had vanished, and in place of this false sense was
21 the spiritual sense, the subjective state by which he could
see the new heaven and new earth, which involve the
spiritual idea and consciousness of reality. This is Scrip-24
tural authority for concluding that such a recognition of
being is, and has been, possible to men in this present
state of existence, — that we can become conscious,
27 here and now, of a cessation of death, sorrow, and pain.
This is indeed a foretaste of absolute Christian Science.
Take heart, dear sufferer, for this reality of being will
30 surely appear sometime and in some way. There will
be no more pain, and all tears will be wiped away.

The resurrection of Gaelic is a great idea but I feel its important not to confuse sentimentality with future use. Some people try to cling to it as a relic of our past but that sentimentality will ultimately be ripped away in the march of progress. As technology affects everything in our lives, that relic is destined to vanish which will mean disappointment for many people unless we change our view.
We need to find a workable use of Gaelic for the future and acknowledge it as linking to our past, but we must also submit to “where it’s going” positively rather than “where it’s been” and acknowledge it as a collective living entity.
I believe that in our psyche, we are currently using Gaelic as a point of Identity, which links to our past but is not yet being used to move us forward other than on a functional cognitive level. We see that with more and more aggression demanding rights for Gaelic because people feel insecure with it, as it exists for many people only superficially.
If indeed Gaelic is being used as a tool for identity then it requires entry in our mind at a subconcious level rather than a cognitive one or surface structure. This is the only way it can survive.
I’ve been looking at ways of creating some kind of Gaelic spirituality, based on scientific principles and laid out in some kind of pedagogical structure and accessed through the Arts, then utilised to bring Gaelic in a deeper sense to us. I think this is neccessary for two reasons:
1. As new speakers of the language enter functionally to the Gaelic world, they cannot experience depth. They simply use Gaelic words instead of English ones.
2.Native Gaelic speakers are intrinsically linked with a religious opinion which cannot serve them in the future as it, itself has failed to modernise and has rather became a time honoured system destined to die and further rob Gaels of a systematic part of life.
I doubt very much that this idea will be popular amongst traditional hard core Gaels who are very set in their ways, but considering the current moral system has held all of us prisoner for many years, (and is almost dead) we need to move on.
I will post more about this as it develops, if anyone wants to know more, let me know.
