Don’t seek, don’t search, don’t ask, don’t knock, don’t demand ~ relax. If you relax it comes – Osho
When most people practice prayer, they do so from the standpoint of their personality. This is how we are taught to pray from the time we are small children.
We are rarely invited to ask from beyond the viewpoint of our personality.
Hard as it may be to hear but God isn’t interested in you as a person.
The word ‘person’ comes from the word “persona” meaning “mask.” This is the mask that we create to present to the world. Another name for this mask is “ego.”
When you ask from the level of the personality you are asking from the limitation of time. The personal is an experience bound within the limitation of time and space.
The God experience is Boundless and Timeless.
To use a term popularised in the book by Ester Hicks entitled Ask and it is Given, – “There is no vibrational match.”
What is Timeless and Boundless within you is your soul. (Source Of Unconditional Love)
Your soul is the individualised aspect of the Divine within you. What will be given to you is what is in alignment with the intention of your soul.
What will be given is what is in alignment with the Will of the Divine. This is the Will to Love rather than the time bound limited desires of the personality.
The desires of the personality tend to be driven by the forces of the culture, the tribe and the media including the advertising industry.
To travel the 3 steps to Heaven (Ask, believe, receive) you must learn to ask from beyond the personal and practice living in alignment with the vibration and energy of the transpersonal.
This is living the mantra, “Thy will be done.”
This is the 1st step in the process that will actualise the promise of prayer. This changes the focus at the heart of prayer.
It moves asking from a focus on what “you want” to the deeper reality of that which is intended to be expressed through you from your soul and through all eternity.
