If suffering is caused by resisting the moment, then prayer is simply saying “yes” to the moment.
Used properly, religion should be the vehicle used to evoke spirituality.
The quiet, empty space always speaks the loudest. We just have to be patient enough to sit with it and listen.
“This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.”—-Alan Watts
People are controlled by form (others, events, etc.). They react to form, try to control form, analyze form and seek happiness in form. But true freedom is found in formlessness. Nothing to react to, control, analyze or seek for.
It seems that each person suffers to the degree in which they are unconscious of the Divine presence in the moment. All of life is calling us to wake up! Be alert, conscious, alive and present!
What if there are no problems? What if the purpose of life is simply life itself? What if there is no God’s Will? The world is vibrating with Divine energy and it’s up to us to give it shape and form.
