Hitbodedut
Poetry and Music by Andrew Pell

(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.
