In the vertigo of events, immediacy becomes the executioner of decisions, responses, attitudes..., which lose tune with the transcendent; which lose the perception of the future; which adhere exclusively to the immediate opinion, and close off options and possibilities.
The Prayerful Call warns us of the need to listen, to perceive the options that everyday life offers... and to know how to discover universality.
Personalism becomes stronger and stronger. Radicalisms become precipitous. And so it is that living together ley out challenges that... even -even- if they can be solved, human thought continues to think -forgive the redundancy- that there is such and such a difficulty, and considers itself incapable of assuming the solution.
It seems that it is easier to remain in the righteous radicalism. There has been enough of that already!... There is enough, still!
But it seems that situations -of any kind!- that occur, socially speaking, are considered as an... aggression.
And this criterion arises: "Each one must defend their own".
It is the most ignorant of sentences. The moment of saying it, it is already excluding it from the rest and becomes a predominant egomaniac.
This is how the advance of human civilisation progresses without consideration.
And even when the solution to the conflict is in front of him, he remains obsessed with the conflict. And he neither sees nor participates in the solution.
Whatever differs from our consciences... does not constitute an attack. And that happens when there is “prevalence": everyone feels prevalent to any other option than their own.
In that status, a complaint and criticism develop... permanently! Whatever the proposal.
That is not the way life is treated, from the Creator Mystery.
The very experience of living implies... a state of infinity, of liberation, of "miracle".
The air is generous, and does not argue, when it is offered in our inspired presence.
Food is kind, when it restores our fatigue, our desire.
And coexistence, communication... as part of that need for communion should be complaisant.
The human community lives in permanent discontent, disagreement, rivalry, and inconvenience.
The axis of development has been centred on the arrogance of each being, and not... and not on the coexistence of the amplification of consciousness. And even less on the reference consciousness of "Providence".
The Prayerful Call calls us to "providentialize" ourselves, to reduce our pressure... created by the demands of the style of living together.
The position of power consciousness at all levels!... implies a constant challenge to that permanent Providence that provides us with resources, suggestions...
But it is true that, as humanity, we have reached a position of "solvency" -with inverted commas-, of self-management... that prevents us from perceiving the subtle influences that permanently adorn us.
The Prayerful Call claims our connection –for being life- with a Creation.
And every time we act with radicalism, with authoritarianism, with positions of outcome... we are annulling our reference, our authentic reference: the feeling of being situated in a Creative Mystery.
We are shown, in everyday events, the dualism expressed in optimism and pessimism.
The optimist one, who finds reasons for development, progress and achievement.
And the pessimist one, who struggles with deterioration.
The impeccable discards it.
And between these two positions, between this dualism, the Call to Prayer calls us for transcendentalism. Yes, that position in which "the positive" and "the negative" do not count, but rather what counts is "what transcends", which is the experience of knowing that we are capable -by Providence- of being a unique event!
"Of being a unique event". But aware that this Oneness merges with all and... is an expression of the Creator Mystery. There are no dependencies. There is no need for continuous criticism and impending despair.
It is the search for transcendence in doing; feeling linked to life as a unique experience, and thus making each and every moment unique.
And to have and to generate the capacity for conversion; to reconvert the spoiled, the wasted, the erroneous, into something recoverable, "redeemed".
In the magma of life, and specifically of humanity, to redeem is a necessity today. And it always has been, but today it seems even more necessary. It is not included in the catalogue of words in the face of problems of any kind. No.
But the prayerful person has to become aware of it, and turn the damage, deterioration, the critical, desperate, into a reconversion, an inevitable redemption.
The bird sighs silently, before its song.
The human is inspired... is inspired, and awaits what is withheld, before expressing its words.
And so, in showing oneself, error is not contemplated, criticism is not necessary, and it is possible to breathe...
Breathing with longing to fly. Sighing like feathers that sway as they fall, without stumbling.
It is necessary to generate the ornament. Yes, that embellishment that the poet usually wields. That adornment that allows us to evaporate the hardness, the rigor of the approaches.
To the extent that we are able of adorning an event, it becomes more fluid, attractive, enabling.
The search for yields and results strips what we do of the beauty of adornment. It places our daily life in a performance that deprives us of breath, of the beauty of the ornament, of that moment of silence, of that moment of smile... or of that word of relief.
The omens of life are always flattering.
The human interpretation of it -life- is permanently... vindictive, rigid and demanding. And this is how the virtue of living is diluted and replaced by profit... that impoverishes the mind and detaches the being from the transcendent.
