And the more humanity strives in the belief of its powers, the more it moves away from the Creator Mystery, the more it isolates itself in its little benefits, in its sullen actions; the more it isolates itself in its local, personal powers...; the more it entertains in its world.
That "world" disconnected from the worlds with consciousness of Universe, from the worlds with consciousness of being created.
Structures of different rigidities are quickly established by sectors, places, regions -today called "countries"- that limit the threshold of consciousness and subject it to a sedentary lifestyle of customs, manipulative, controlling and punishing.
And from the earliest childhood!.... So when they become adults, they can continue to firmly manage that "underworld"... kidnapped from the world of Universes.
Away from... the Creative Mystery, man creates equivalent prostheses: sciences, technologies, discoveries... that have transitory values, but which are replenished.
And with fewer and fewer resources... the being is soon suffocated in his world.
And he becomes anguished and desperate, and he doesn't like this state but... he doesn't have the resources -he has them, but he doesn't assume them- to open up to the Universe, to open up to Creation.
Faced with difficulties, he isolates himself, withdraws, retreats...; he becomes anguished with depressed anxiety, and becomes impenetrable to words, advices, suggestions... And this is how humanity tells us that the depressive sense of being increases in a very striking way.
Undoubtedly, many factors intervene there, but the main and primary one, from the Prayerful Sense, is having been kidnapped -out of a lust for power, dominance and control- in an underworld, isolated from Creation.
This isolated underworld... is becoming more and more constricted, each time it gets smaller…
And it becomes big news, the illness or death of Joe Biden's dog. “Headline” news.
In the meantime, they remain there, as internal news and... that require searching, wars, famines, persecutions, prisons, epidemics, ignorance, and serious shortages...
This underworld of isolated attitudes, of separations from the Universe, of very little consciousness of the Creator Mystery... assumes, in its arrogance, as "normal" the existence of poverty, misery, punishment, law, illness, violence as one more form of dialogue...
And thus, everything that tends to deterioration, everything that tends to "the end", is considered rational, logical... un-avoidable. Therefore, the intention of repairing, restoring, reviving, recomposing, revising... does not make much sense.
The idea of the inexorable procession of deterioration... floods the daily consciousness.
Complaint, drama, tragedy, worry... are permanent satellites... of the light of every being.
This is the level one is in! And the Prayerful Call claims us to see the evidence, and to seek answers from the Universe, answers from the Creator Mystery.
Let's stop "substituting". Let's give up and abandon prostheses.
Let us make of our being, our attitude and our actions, a liberating activity, of listening and relationship.
When we are called to pray, we must gather ourselves in that Call, not only at the precise moment of "day and time" in which it happens, but in the echo that must… and does remain in us, on a daily basis.
"Our Help is the Name". And from the Prayerful Call... we receive that influence.
Meditation and contemplation support us in this disposition with Creation, to create in us this consciousness of continuous creation, of permanent renewal, of liberating discoveries and learning, of commitments to help, of solidary attitudes. All this is reflected, it is seen... in our daily actions.
And, under these perspectives, anxiety, anguish, sadness, despair... have no room, no place, because they belong to an attitude, to a restrictive, protagonist, dominant, winning, dogmatic... and self-sufficient consciousness.
