Summary Exploration 8 - The Real Meaning of Prayer
If, because of all the experiences that have accumulated in your microcosm, you have reached the limit of what is attainable in this field of life and are beginning to experience it as a desert, you will be able to perceive with increasing clarity the calling of the Spirit Spark in the innermost of your being. Based upon this new magnetic reality that manifests itself within you we would like to discuss with you the true meaning of something so often misunderstood, that is what we call ‘prayer’.
Exploration 8 - The Real Meaning of Prayer
In our last exploration, we spoke about the endura, the process by which the I-central thoughts, desires and actions of the earthly human being are dissolved into stillness and the power of what is mortal and unholy is overcome. Through this self-surrender of the earthly human being, the rebirth of the original, divine Human Being is made possible. John expresses it in the following words: ‘He, the Other One in me, must increase and I must decrease.’
If you have recognized that for you, too, the endura is a necessity, you will also be able to recognize the need for the I-central self in ‘your’ microcosm to be dissolved in a radical way.
