(Hitbodedut is the Hebrew word for Meditation)
In all your mysteries, I will meditate and gaze at all your wonders.
My daily thought will be on you and all else will be rent asunder.
I will be emptying my mind of all noise and distraction.
My mind will connect to yours and your spirit will be my traction.
Here in a quiet place I will sit and be at peace
When I am in this state, all my troubles I release.
My mind is still and time is no longer real.
To connect, we must open the spiritual seal.
Let me travel through the earthquake, wind and fire.
So that I may seek, teach and embrace your holy desire.
Then out of the darkness comes the still small voice of calm.
An angel of light appears and reads a verse from a Psalm.
In an instant all eternity and all living creatures have become one.
God’s purpose is no longer hidden.
Speak to me Lord; anoint me with your holy balm.
Speak to me Lord through the earthquake, wind and fire, O still small voice of calm.
