God Prayer:Ritual,Gratitude or desiring Human pride

you get up in the morning after completing your natural needs you go to church temple gurudwara and whatever your religious place and perform your God prayer it may be your daily routine or it may be occasionally.Is it the right way of prayer.It may be a ritual of your religion but it is not the right way of prayer it is the one act of your daily list of activities.

Prayer should become the voice of your heart if you are doing prayer at the level of your mind that is not the prayer. There are two types of religion some are based on prayer and some are based on meditation.If you are mind oriented extrovert nature then meditation is your way. If you are receptive introvert emotional then prayer may be your way at the journey of adhyatm.

God prayer : Ritual Gratitude Human pride

Prayer and meditation are different things. Their movement is in different directions. Prayer is a conversation between god and you with full of love and gratitude.Meditation is deep silence there is no conversation no talking Meditation is pure science there is no god who governs you.

 

Prayer is on right way if it changes the condition of your heart if you becomes full of love and kindness then you are full of prayer then every act of your life become the prayer of god.Prayer is the conversation with the depth of your heart.

Time of prayer-

According to many religion, morning is the best time for the prayer of god. only reason behind that is that  in morning you are fresh you are full of energy but that’s not the meaning of that after morning hours you can,t  do prayer you can do prayer at any time when you are full of love gratitude  and thanksgiving then you are full of prayer then you are in prayer.

 Place for prayer-

You go to your religious place for prayer that may be helpful to go deep in prayer because peaceful surrounding and gathering of too many at a single place creates a sphere  of energy that will be helpful to you to go in prayerful state but your religious instructor have made it ritual and spreads the rumor that only at this place you can perform your prayer. You can do prayer at any place.

Words of prayer-

All religion have their own prayer words and format of their prayer is fixed you can pray that prayer but prayer should come from your depth of your heart, not from your mind you can perform prayer during that your mind may be wandering at the marketplace.When you are full of prayer then every act of your life becomes prayer.

Why are you doing prayer-

Jesus said: Seek you first the kingdom of god, then all else shall be added unto you -you have desire only for the kingdom of god then everything you will get  but you are doing just opposite of that you desire human pride things in your prayer .you wants to fulfill your desires of money power and fame you are just like a bagger in front of god as soon as you desire anything then you have closed the door of your heart towards God.You should be thankful for which God already have given focus of your prayer not be materialistic things focus of your prayer should be God then you will get everything automatically then you will receive the grace of god and your life will change you will be full of peace love kindness and happiness and everyone who will come in your contact will feel that.

Try to concentrate on the gap between two thoughts

What is mind? The mind is a chain of continuously arising thoughts you go from one thought to another thought but you miss the gap of two thoughts there is a gap between two thoughts.
