How to Pray
What is Prayer?
Is it really what you are doing everyday?
Well, prayer is not that one must always go on asking for good health, prosperity, money, good job and so on. This is rather demands.
The title 'Prayer' has lost its truth because real prayer is when you don't ask anything rather you are ready to accept the Purification Process which I call Cleansing Process. Absorb Cosmic Energy more and more and you will then find inner transformation otherwise you go on asking to yourself because there's no one to listen to you other than yourself.
Praying should be just an energy phenomenon.
Simply become silent, simply open yourself.
Raise both your hands towards the sky, palms uppermost, head up, just feeling existence flowing in you.
As the energy flows down your arms, you will feel a gentle tremor.
Be like a leaf in a breeze, trembling. Allow it, help it.
Then let your whole body vibrate with energy, and just let whatever happens happen.
You feel again a flowing with the earth.
Earth and heaven, above and below, yin and yang, male and female - you float, you mix, you drop yourself completely.
You are not.
You become one...merge.
After two or three minutes, or whenever you feel completely filled, lean down to the earth and kiss the earth.
You simply become a vehicle to allow the divine energy to unite with that of the earth.
Merging with Energy
These two stages should be repeated six more times so that each of the chakras can become unblocked. It is best to do this prayer at night, in a darkened room, going to sleep immediately afterwards; or it can be done in the morning, but it must be followed by fifteen minutes' rest. This rest is necessary, otherwise you will feel as if you are drunk, in a stupor.
This merging with energy is prayer. It changes you. And when you change, the whole existence changes - because with your attitude the whole existence changes for you. Not that the existence is changing - the existence remains the same - but now you are flowing with it, there is no antagonism. There is no fight, no struggle - you are surrendered to it.
