A Course In Miracles teaches us that when we reach a certain point in our relationship with the Divine we’ll realize that we have mighty companions walking beside us. They are our Divine friends and neighbors. Jesus taught us that there are many houses in God’s mansion. I think of it like this: we live in a Divine apartment complex. The day you move into your expanded awareness you get introduced to your wonderful neighbors: Quan Yin, St. Francis, Krishna, Mother Mary, Buddha, Jesus, Saint Germaine, Holy Spirit, Higher Self and of course all the Archangels. They live above, below, in all directions.
The policy in the building is this: the moment you have a need or a concern your neighbors will help. All you have to do is ask. Knock on the wall, knock on the door and you’ll find they are there for you, 24/7. But you have to ask. If you don’t invite them, they cannot come.
All you need is a willingness to get the gas to take you where you want to. Instead you walk down the street to the mini-mart and buy a pack of cigarettes, a six pack of beer and some chips, a couple of candy bars and you walk back to your car. You continue to call people who will listen to your story of desperation and hopelessness until you’re almost out of cell charge. You pass out in the heat and sleep until morning.
Upon waking you hear a voice that says: “Call AAA NOW and ask them to bring gas before another day goes by. They will come if you call.” You call and they come with gas. And now you have to decide where you want to go. Are you going to go back and complain about where you’ve been or are you interested in going someplace new?
Prayer is like the gas in your car. Prayer is a profoundly effective means of shifting our attention from what we don’t want to what we deeply desire. It is the fuel for Divine transportation. Wherever you want to go, prayer will take you there. Pray now. Pray often. Pray always.
I have a passion for where I’m going and I’m going there with God.
