The Prayer Call warns us of the need for a progressive clarity of our consciousness.
In a human community populated by discourses, competitions, profits, triumphs, failures..., it is easy for the eagerness of consciousness, when clarifying itself, to reveal the dark, the dramatic, the inadequate; to raise the complaint and anger at any excess or any... “obvious” transgression, according to the prevailing norms.
This attitude of complaint, criticism, disillusion, when it becomes big –and it usually does- leaves aside the clarity of one's own conscience. It is fully committed to the “against”, “anti” debate...
Debate that, on the other hand, is contested by the surrounding, the environment, the law, the norm, custom... and does not progress. There are small examples or exceptions, but the established power, with its rules, its laws, its customs, its economy, its religiosity, its reason, is enormously powerful.
Throughout its well-known trajectory –globally speaking- attempts have been made, both from within, theoretically -and they have ended up swallowed up by that power, that establishment- and from outside, in the so-called "revolutions" or "protests" or...
And seen from the perspective of proportions, that power -generically speaking- which are powers or potentialities that come together -religious, political, spiritual, economic, traditional, etc.- and form a conglomerate, like a board that establishes what is good, what is bad, what is normal, what condemns, what persecutes, that power is, to be precise, a minority.
But it happens that its potential on the consciousness of the human community is enormous. And the majority -due to their ignorance, their poverty, their comfort- end up abiding by the rule, the law, custom, because... it promises security, stability, well-being. And if you make an effort and work hard –hard!- you can achieve happiness.
It is a pattern that has spread. Belonging to a minority, I insist, but it has in its power the means of production, the means of storage, the means of violence, the means of knowledge, the technological means.
So many particles have been concentrated that they have created a style of living. And that style does not allow progressive clarity of consciousness. What's more, this style ensures that the consciousness of the being is like the rabbit behind the carrot: it sees it so close... But it is bait for it to run after, and it will never catch it.
The cascading power –like a sweeping tsunami- of a model, of a style of living, spills over all scales of human configuration.
And that is why it is generating addictions: to buying a house, to drinking Pepsi Cola, to traveling once a year, to sightseeing, to eating junk food, to an “easy”-in quotes- life...; consumption and consumption, insult as a method of relationship, continuous and on-going espionage, denunciation between one another...
So, it is easy not to realize that attitudes -in general, eh?- of criticism, of rebellion, do not contribute to the clarity of our consciousness, because they do not modify the patterns -with some exceptions-... they do not modify the patterns of coexistence.
Egoism is strongly installed. Ownership is fiercely debated, and is almost a universal law.
Yes: there is even talk of “universal laws”, as if the Universe needed laws. Unbelievable!
It is like saying that the human community, in its powerful minority, has taken over the Universe.
Wow! Is it that powerful?
In recent generations –recent, eh?- it is evidently so. And it increases with the passing of the new ones, which imitate, which carry on.
The Prayer Call warns us of this position: that although we must have the criteria, the observance, the characteristic of what happens, of what it is, of what there is, yes, but preferring –“preferring”- the clarity of our progressive consciousness, which is the development of our gifts, which is the solidarity of our coexistence, which is the clarity of our words, which is the position of balance, which is understanding, which is kindness, which is the helpful position, which is solidarity help... and many more headings! That, to some extent, everyone knows; senses, at least.
Don't wait for offers. Generate our idealistic, sentimental resources: those that give us a clear vision of our positions, of our dispositions to be... fortunate, to be blessed, to be witnesses of our presence.
We have come to testify. We have come –because we have been brought- to testify our transparent nature.
And this testimony, of course, is from every being. That has its intimacy; that knows how to respect; that does not promote interference, but is prepared for liberation.
And in that respect for intimacies, it knows how to share different opinions. “Share” different opinions, different points of view. But it is known... -in this testimony- it is known that there is a communion between the natures of humanity, although they are arranged in different positions.
And that allows us to admire each other.
And with that respectful admiring intimacy we can share, in solidarity, clear projects of consciousness, which are amplified...; searches for new rays that illuminate the paths.
Always –of course- knowing that there is that overwhelming minority that watches over us, that controls us, that classifies us, that condemns us.
Darkness –like dark matter and dark energy- finds visible light attractive and sympathetic. It doesn't attack it. On the contrary: without it there could not be that visible light.
It is similar to silence, which does not fight against the word. On the contrary: it sets the stage for the word to break through.
Consequently, if the Universe presents itself like this, any model that the man of power exercises here, makes darkness a repression, a subtraction, a domain, a control, while clarity debates whether or not it will be able to exist. And, at times, despair can lead to abandonment; to neglect our testimony presence.
And it is because many times we have been infected by that dominant imperative model, and when we see that we are not like or similar to it, discouragement appears, and despair at not achieving the desired privilege... makes, evidently, the majority to give in its creative space, give up its clarity, give up its evolution to the mandates established by that powerful minority, in its laws, in its rules, in its opinions, in its sentences, in its threats.
As prayerful witnesses of the “Prayer Call,” we must reclaim our progressive position of evolving clarity; our position of universal belonging, which does not depend on particular power, not even our own!, which is already like a rule, which is a great contaminating element: the power that each one has. Vanities!
We have not been brought here to have power, but to serve.
To serve as testimony of the greatness of Creation, of the Creative Mystery.
And that is the protection we have. That gravitates on us. It is not the protection of political, economic, judicial power. No. But we do have to take it into account, of course. We are interacting in an evolution of humanity. Of course we take it into account!
But what is the position and attitude that the being has in the face of all this? What is the inspiring idealism that each one professes based on the inspiration that each being has due to their origin?
That is a priority. That is the essence of our being. It is what leads us to be unique, unrepeatable, singular.
There is no greater guarantee than that which one has with the consciousness of knowing oneself... transcended, immanent and coming from the Creative Mystery.
That powerful minority has used an ancient consciousness, according to which, the Creative Mystery persecutes us, punishes us.
And “fear". Fear has become the summit of the first action of power. And so, fear appears of expressing oneself, fear of showing oneself, fear of saying, fear of having, fear... of any situation that is not the established one, the imposed one, the one generated by domination.
And to some extent –look closely- to some extent, that generic power –religious, political, economic, etc.- supplants the ancient idea that God punished with droughts, with storms, with floods… A persecutor of behaviours! He punished us with diseases, with plagues...
It is the same current: the great usurper –Power- assumes divine positions, and the being, in its epigenetic inheritance of so many centuries of conditioning, is easy to fall into that tendency. And fear makes it lie, and fear makes it hide, and fear makes it deceive, and fear makes it corrupt. The fear…
If our reference is the Creative Mystery and we are testimonial witnesses, we testify!, it is due to our origin, to that loving-dawn...
We are born due the Love of the Creative Mystery. We are not loved with the dose of fear, with the warning of punishment. We are loved with benevolence, with generosity, with mercy, with protection, with help, with assistance.
Punishment, any punishment, would be... -although it seems very easy, it has not been like that, of course- it would be like an infinite contradiction: that the Creative Mystery punished itself or its work; or seeing it defective or deficient; or having the free will to compete with the designs of Creation.
But of course, the power has given to us, to some extent, to feel powerful and, with our free will, being able to challenge any evidence that we have accepted and developed in our lives. We stop doing it because of... rules, environment, the order, the punishment, the fear.
It's time to clear, to clarify... progressively, evolutionarily.
There is no need to put up banners or make announcements.
It is being.
You have to be awake, yes. Because if you are not awake, it is difficult for clarity to open our eyelids.
And being awake implies listening, attitude, position, alertness, attention.
“Prayer Call”: a call to our consciousness, so that we pay attention to our nature, so that we do not fall asleep in our consciousness.
And to make of it –of our consciousness- a glow... creative, novel, surprising, admirable, in the extraordinary and the exceptional.
