The mind has dominated for eons. Its ways and means of maintaining ‘control’ over experience are myriad. As a result, the Heart [the ONE SELF YOU Really Are] has been imprisoned in a linear time-space dream that most have simply accepted as: “just the way it is”. To open the Heart, allowing the Light that naturally radiates from IT/YOU, usually requires [at first], a hard jolt … like loosening a stubbornly stuck lid from a jar. These jolts often come in the form of ‘deep suffering’ that one is exposed to such as life-threatening circumstances in family members or even beloved pets. The suffering of nations can also help pry open the Heart in bondage.
For many, chronic illnesses, whether their own or those in their care or vicinity can gradually erode deeply entrenched mind control. The heartfelt prayers offered in this, or other selfless services … ‘do’ often show signs of being answered … but this is simply the manipulation of the dream by a mind that is ‘focused and passionate about a certain outcome’. The ‘real’ influence of prayer in service [when genuine] is to ‘again’ loosen the ‘stuck lid’ that confines the Light within … the ‘only’ God there is - the ONE SELF YOU Are.
