And the prayerful invocation refers us to other perspectives, contemplating events without prejudices, judgements, opinions, customs, rules...; it is not that they do not exist or that they do not have to be practiced or exercised at some point, but they should not condition our mood, our humour, our loves.
When the being interferes with itself, it seeks to execute its projects and ideas, and becomes imposing, demanding, dominant.
When the reference is of Universe, those characteristics -under the Prayerful Sense- must be diluted.
This is what the believer resorts to in order to find the traces, the signs, the different paths!
This the believer resorts to: to the Prayer that invokes, that provokes.
It has no rules or laws.
The reference to Goodness and Mercy knows no customs.
It is, and it becomes the help of our setbacks, to lead us to flexibility, understanding, acceptance, adaptation, and the development of new perspectives.
When, in addition -not because it is more, but because it is different- prayer becomes variable, distinct, different...; always seeking to contribute, to develop, to get out of the cloistered information, formations and customs.
According to... according to one's consciousness, and according to that only, the so-called "world" is terrible, horrible. You will never find something to your liking, to your design. The complaint will be permanent.
But when our consciousness comes out of its lair, and becomes... becomes a vigil of light, then it is capable of highlighting what is brilliant, admirable, kind; he is capable to recreate himself in the beauty of an instant, in the relief of discovering himself flexible and generous.
It is true, yes, that we see personal anger on a daily basis; the one that judges everything.
Yes, it is true that dramas are watched, whether by news, images or any other means.
And, yes, it is true that there are daily difficulties that get bigger and bigger.
But all of that is a small part -smaller than it seems- of other situations that occur. But, of course, when they don't involve us, it's as if they don't exist...
And the being makes a "close-up": a close-up of the lent, of its troubles, and there it moves. There seems to be nothing else.
And so bellicose, angry, excited consciences are added to each other. They always find another person of the same nature, who supports them, who contributes...
And of course, the drama or tragedy or explosion ends up being consummated.
The Prayerful Call places us in tune with the living.
And in all this we find the encouragement to not judge ourselves.
Assuming ourselves in the roles that appear to us, but learning, deducing, interpreting!, under a transcendent perspective -not of our teeth; something else!-.
Assuming living as a heavy burden that is becoming denser and denser implies a limiting, a narrowing of the course, a closing of borders, a loss of dimensions in terms of references.
Yes, in that obstacle of self-centredness, the use of references to humanity can be, and is, when is done honestly, clarifying.
And if we make the reference to a person unjustly imprisoned, or if we make it to a sick suffering and prostrated, or if we make it to someone who has not had the opportunity to read, or write, or learn... if we refer successively like this -not adding more- to other referents of other beings who live under other parameters, it can be useful for us to suspect... -let's leave it there- to suspect the transcendence of our course.
And if we add to all this the evidence, of our qualities, the personal gifts we have, our capacities, and all that this can promote, with this impulse we are close to listening to the prayerful, to applying it to our permanence, to varying our "tuning".
And there is also the "desperate" attitude that incites to escape, that incites to violence...; and, at the same time, to the incapacity "to". Consciousness enters into this closed space, incapable of solving the own prisons where the being exercises in. And as it only finds himself under the legislation of its privative consciousness, it does not see, does not feel, and does not perceive any other reference.
Assuming, in the face of permanent complaint, despair and incapacity... to assume the option -which is there- to become minimally humble. And in that sense, dilute the importance and personal chaos.
Grant oneself a transit position of "calm".
That active calm that implies serenity, and that congratulates us when we give ourselves... and receive the answer; the complaisant answer.
To transcend, ascend to a vision, to an audition, to a taste, to a texture... that contemplates living as a gift, as an exception, as an unusual appearance.
Transcending, placing oneself in the perspective of our unknown origin, and as a believer, in the evident consent, help, involvement and constant mercy and generosity that is lavished through living.
Transcending, making active that our presence and our permanence, and the passing that implies, is not of our work!
We transcend towards a Mystery, and to develop a full consciousness of trust towards that Transcendent Reference.
Condescension, that is not touched, not possessed, you cannot have, but obviously, "with serenity", the being can feel gravitating over it, over everyone, it is an invitation for us to also condescend with what is around us; what is happening.
Give way to calm and serenity, in the face of growing irritability and despair and complaint.
