Prayer: It is not only spiritual. It is the ultimate mind development tool. Every night, and every day when I can, I pray. It deepens me. I could put this article under a “spiritual category” and end it right there, but that is where it begins. Prayer in the mental as well as spiritual arsenal is a great thing, the greatest modality I have ever encountered to challenge and develop my mind to higher levels. So, although prayer is known as spiritual mostly, I shall delve into some of those other uses and modalities of prayer here.
In life and if you live a real life, everyone who lives faces a crisis at one time or another and pray then. But, most of the high teachers, including Jesus and Buddha basically say and mean things like “pray and meditate without ceasing” meaning that you cannot just pray when it is “a spiritual time to pray”, pray all the time you can pray and never let up on your forces of prayer and vigilance. That idea there is not exactly mine, it came from many readings of Claude Myron Bristol’s books “The Magic Of Believing” and “TNT: It Rocks The Earth”. His exact idea was that “constant and subtle undying belief is a consistent form of prayer” in a crisis or in a peaceful time without a crisis. In fact, the richest forms of prayer, if we do pay attention come in times of peace and without a crisis when we are paying attention. In fact, attention must be paid if we want prayer and belief to work in our minds and “outside of our minds”. Empty words without emotion, meaning and power do nothing anyhow. Indeed, the big deal about prayer is meaning what we say and following through whether peace or crisis, without that, prayer is just empty action.
In fact, I can say this: Courage is the key to positive prayer, fear is the key to the ultimate curse. Let me explain: The courage to follow through, mean what we say, be consistent and use our power right whatever the appearances may be is power. Fear is the ultimate single and simple weakness that ruins everything to put it how Charles Francis Haanel put it in “The Master Key System”. To go by reality whatever the appearance at the time is the Master Mind, to go purely by appearance and fear is everything else. In this paragraph here is the big deal about positive prayer. The great things are what count, the rest is just the rest. Realize this fully and you will have the Master Mind and understand reality and how to deal with it. After all real faith is conscious, despite appearances, despite what is seeming to happen good or bad, and in reality.[ad_2]
