This is like asking, “Does prayer really work?” The answer is both “Yes” and “No” depending on how you approach the practice.
When people pray, they begin with the intention to pray. The problem is this, and it is a major problem. They frame most prayers and most intentions within the dynamic of the personal mind.
The personal mind is the mind that thinks it is separate from the Field of Intention. It is the mind that has as its core belief the idea of separation.
Prayer and intention work when you learn to recognize this feeling of separation keeps you from manifesting what is to be expressed through you.
Notice how I have phrased the last sentence. I didn’t say “keeps you from manifesting what you desire.” The major reason you do not manifest what you desire is because you get in the way.
When you learn to get out of the way as an individual whose focus is on dictating to the Cosmos then the Cosmos gives you what you are created to receive. This is really magical. This is the practice that I call authentic faith rather than faith allied to belief.
Again, I quote from the Master Jesus.
