God Intoxicated

Some of our homeless become enlightened. Jesus and his disciples were homeless. They become homeless in order to OCCUPY the places millions fear to be. They are the Parents of these places, welcoming God’s Children so they will not be afraid wherever they go. The Jews are Wayfarers. https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/176083304/hatoon-victoria-adkins

Tefilat HaDerech (Hebrew: תפילת הדרך‎) or the Traveler’s Prayer or Wayfarer’s Prayer in English, is a prayer for a safe journey recited by Jews, when they travel, by air, sea, and even on long car trips.[1] It is recited at the onset of every journey, and preferably done standing but this is not necessary.[2] It is often inscribed onto hamsas which sometimes contain the Sh’ma or Birkat HaBayit prayer instead.

יְהִי רָצוֹן מִלְּפָנֶיךָ ה’ אֱ-לֹהֵינוּ וֵא-לֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵינוּ, שֶׁתּוֹלִיכֵנוּ לְשָׁלוֹם וְתַצְעִידֵנוּ לְשָׁלוֹם. וְתִסְמְכֵנוּ לְשָׁלוֹם. וְתַדְרִיכֵנוּ לְשָׁלוֹם. וְתַגִּיעֵנוּ לִמְחוֹז חֶפְצֵנוּ לְחַיִּים וּלְשִֹמְחָה וּלְשָׁלוֹם וְתַצִּילֵנוּ מִכַּף כָּל אוֹיֵב וְאוֹרֵב וְלִסְטִים וְחַיּוֹת רָעוֹת בַּדֶּרֶךְ וּמִכָּל מִינֵי פֻּרְעָנִיּוֹת הַמִּתְרַגְּשׁוֹת לָבוֹא לָעוֹלָם וְתִשְׁלַח בְּרָכָה בְּכָל מַעֲשֵֹה יָדֵינוּ, וְתִתְּנֵנוּ לְחֵן וּלְחֶסֶד וּלְרַחֲמִים בְעֵינֶיךָ וּבְעֵינֵי כָל רוֹאֵינוּ וְתִשְׁמַע קוֹל תַּחֲנוּנֵינוּ. כִּי אֵ-ל שׁוֹמֵעַ תְּפִלָּה וְתַחֲנוּן אָתָּה: בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה’, שׁוֹמֵעַ תְּפִלָּה.

May it be Your will, Lord, our God and the God of our ancestors, that You lead us toward peace, guide our footsteps toward peace, and make us reach our desired destination for life, gladness, and peace. May You rescue us from the hand of every foe and ambush, from robbers and wild beasts on the trip, and from all manner of punishments that assemble to come to earth. May You send blessing in our handiwork, and grant us grace, kindness, and mercy in Your eyes and in the eyes of all who see us. May You hear the sound of our humble request because You are God Who hears prayer requests. Blessed are You, Lord, Who hears prayer.

In looking at the genealogy of Pharamond and Rosamond I came across the original surname (Harutyunyan) of a homeless woman who died here in Eugene years ago. Victoria Hatoon Aikens was of Armenia descent, she telling me her ancestors were Armenian nobles who were forced to flee for their lives. You could say this homeless woman who slept outside the Knight Library, was mentally ill. But, then one wondered. Was she a Mast, a “god-intoxicated one”.

“Current historical research suggests that Pharamond may indeed have been the same person as Varazdat, a deposed regent and prince of the exiled Siunia Dynasty. The Siunia Dynasty or Siak, Syunik were the first dynasty to rule Syunik, beginning in the 1st century. Their rulers belonged to an Armenian family of descendents of Sisak.”

Varazdat Harutyunyan (29 November 1909 – 20 March 2008, also Harutiunian, Armenian: Վարազդատ Հարությունյան) was an Armenian academic, architect and…
