And, progressively, and broadly, the reference that the being manages is the reference of itself, either projected on others, or admired from others or towards others; in which case, guidelines, inspirations, projects are focused exclusively on the opinion, criteria and the point of view of the powerful or the powerful of the moment.
The reference "out of"... becomes more and more languid. And even if we reach astronomical knowledge that dates us back to an era and predicts a planetary development X, life -in consciousness- of humanity is centred in its own dimension.
A dimension -and this is where the Prayerful Sense calls us- which aims, from the sense of Prayer, to be a testimony and a reflection of our origin, of our project, designed not by us, but by that Creative Mystery.
That is the reference that, in consciousness -with some exceptions- is what makes possible our reflection of our origin, which is then interpreted as personalities, empowerments, but detached from any 'extra-ordinary' origin.
To the extent that we introduce the referential variable different from the one imposed by a similar one, our perspectives, our hopes... become different; they aspire to the so-called "impossible"; they long for fantastic scenarios.
But it certainly happens that egomaniacal development has idolised human action.
And in a time, religions, and now sciences and their technologies, occupy the point of reference. And the ideas of tenderness, gentleness, fantasy, passion, are replaced by performance, efficiency, legislation, order, security...
The Prayerful Call incites us to perceive and to focus on the attributes of the Creator Mystery that exist that there are in every being with whom we relate, meet, perceive, discover...
And this is how our references become different. Without excluding, of course, exceptional events that can occur by virtue of the Creator Mystery.
But if I can -if I can- see in the other, in the others, the vestige -not as a remainder but as an intervention- of the Divine, I will be in a position to change my reference points.
And this does not mean that attraction, admiration, passion, dedication, conjunction, coexistence are lost. On the contrary: it becomes more transcendent, more meaningful.
Seeing divine transcendence "through you", supposes astonishment; it supposes placing our consciousness in an unknown place, yes, but at the same time affiliated by the configuration of others; by our own configuration.
And so, in order to situate oneself in these coordinates, it is necessary to get rid of prejudices, condemnations and accusations.
And it is not a question -for this is sometimes the easy attitude- of breaking away, cutting off, entering into opposition with what one lives, with what one feels.
We have to look beyond what is there and what our senses bring us.
And this is how we can progressively place ourselves in the reference of the Creator Mystery, by perceiving it in others, in ourselves.
Thus, we see ourselves in a unity and at the same time in a plurality, which demonstrates the creative and unceasing presence of the Divine.
In particular, for our orb, it should be "easy" -in inverted commas- to discover ourselves referenced with other dimensions, since we live with the idea of being as "a breath"; of being, as an immortal breath that is configured by breaths that pass through pathways... and intertwine and connect in a magical, unexpected way.
And what's more, all this under extraordinary criteria and references... mutant…
Structures without a framework, but which are there... and which have endured over time.
And that we assume as revelations, and based on this we speculate, we investigate, we search, and interpret...
Under this point of view of breath beats an Eternity.
With an impulse that brings and takes us in a permanent and insistent contemplation.
The Praying Call insists that we are -and we are!- capable to see beyond, since we work with that "beyond", since we diagnose with that "beyond", since we deal with that "beyond"; to balance, to seek the reference of being, to place it in Eternity... so potentials of our configurations have a sense of balance, have the reference of the permanent Mystery, which -as it is well expressed- "by not knowing its name it is called Dao".
Be ready to see the virtue in others. Be ready to be amazed by the fantasy of Creation. Be ready to be an actor, among actors, of a message.
Seeing ourselves among messengers allows us to detach ourselves from the roots of self-importance, from the ego-idolatry of our abilities. And so, we enter into being light poets of breath; light poets of breath, who admire each other, who offer themselves, who give themselves. And each one of us discovers itself in this transcendent and exceptional experience of life, making of it an eternity that slides... towards eternal contemplation.
And, to avoid misinterpretation, it is not a question of denying oneself, but rather of amplifying oneself -if we want to put it in words-. It is not about preventing our realisation. It is about finding the meaning of it.
The premises that have often been proclaimed as "self-denial" are not the strategy of Creation. It is about assuming oneself with the nature of our origin.
Heaven contemplates and entertains us. And it does so with the life that sustains us.
Feeling like an expression of the Creator Mystery is to discover the action of the Mystery of Life in everything around us... and in oneself.
Exercising ourselves today in our transcendent references supposes the daily exercise of Mercy: that disposition, that attitude of knowing how to alchemise, transfigure any situation, and give it a liberating meaning, without remaining in the descriptive and condemnatory.
In the sense of discovering myself in the Creator referential, I am a permanent Mercy.
