True Prayer

True prayer is making ones life into a prayer, always holding your deepest desire in your heart and mind.  One must live with their highest intention always in mind and do whatever is necessary to attain it.

Two Kinds of Prayer

Mundane or Petitionary Prayer – This is asking for something, like a child wanting a toy for Christmas.

 

 

True Prayer – Is the outer self and the inner self coming into communion.  It is humbling oneself and surrendering to a higher power which is in no way separate from you. 

“but adding always at the end ‘Thy will be done’. I would like this, but not my will but Thy will be done. Then the question is who is praying to who? and of course in the last absolute resort it is who you really are having a conversation with who you really are. It’s a kind of internal process within your true identity, and not only important, but indispensable.” -Douglas Harding

 

 

 

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice. – Meister Eckhart
