You can take the help of your Buddhi when you pray. Here’s how to proceed:
- After your initial purification and attunement, note the person for whom you are praying and the problem involved.
- Then, if you are sufficiently developed, witness your mind until you can watch the parade of your thoughts flow past your witnessing vantage point. Serene and undistracted, you remain peaceful and keenly aware. In this manner, you enter a Buddhi state of awareness.
After you abide in the Buddhi state for awhile, your Buddhi will likely then bestow a profound insight to you — a flash of awareness — regarding the person and the problem. Buddhi awareness does not come in words but revelations.
Often, your Buddhi reveals the problem is now solved or shows the means by which the problem will be solved.
Sometimes your Buddhi reveals the causes of the problem and related suffering. Sometimes your Buddhi reveals that Spirit is now moving to transform the difficulty directly through your Buddhi Prayer.
After your Buddhi has made its revelation, you’ll slowly return to normal consciousness and regain your verbal abilities. Then you humbly offer a prayer regarding that which your Buddhi has revealed.
Fourteen — MAHAT PRAYER
When you become advanced in the Buddhi State you will, in time, enjoy another mystical breakthrough: The Mahat State.
In the Mahat state you become aware of the Great Soul — that’s what Mahat means. In Mahat you experience the vast awareness which is shared by all human beings.
In Mahat you are amazed to discover that your deepest self-awareness is not limited to your own body but also abides within everyone at the core levels of their being.
In Mahat you become aware that “you” are inside other people, looking out at the world through their eyes, smiling through their lips, working through their hands, walking through their feet, and rejoicing through their hearts.
Mahat is an utterly magnificent, life-changing experience. You are never the same after you first enter Mahat. You learn for certain that you are one with all other people.
Their concerns are your concerns, their welfare and happiness truly your welfare and happiness.
In Mahat Prayer you enter Mahat and realize your oneness with the person requesting prayer. Usually this unity between Spirit, the person you are praying for and you
is sufficient prayer. The matter of concern is beautifully resolved. However, you may also pray verbally after returning from Mahat to normal consciousness. Mahat experiences will reveal how and what to pray.
Fifteen — INTERPRETIVE PRAYER
When you become mystically awakened, you can sense the substance and presence of the Infinite Spirit. Free of selfish motive or egocentric opinion, you enter the realization that Spirit dwells within and moves through all persons. You can subtly sense how freely and fully Spirit flows inside and around each person.
When you receive a prayer request or notice a person in apparent need of prayer, first attune with the Infinite Spirit. Then seek to become conscious about how freely the person who requires prayer assistance is interplaying with Spirit.
For example, if you sense the person is blocking Spirit in a particular body part, you pray that Spirit flow back and forth in that area until that body part is filled with spiritual light and energy.
If you find anger and hatred between people, you may be moved to ask that Spirit abide between them and within them, revealing the way to understanding and compassionate accord.
In advanced Interpretive Prayer, you sense the spiritual blockages and pray for the restoration of a conscious connection, a return of spiritual indwelling and the resumption of spiritual interplay between the suffering person and the universe.
Your awareness of Spirit guides your prayer in each instance.
Once a week you may wish to practice Interpretive Prayer on yourself. You may find it useful to sit before a mirror and gaze calmly into your face for a few minutes before becoming absorbed in this sublime form of prayer. Practice Interpretive Prayer upon yourself just as if you are helping another person for whom you feel love and compassion.
