From the Highest Thought or From the Lowest Struggle?

Share it Please
This month we are exploring the method of prayer used in our movement. It is called Spiritual Mind Treatment because it is something we do in our own minds. Our form of prayer is not sent, transmitted, or directed anywhere. Rather, it is the process of coming to clarity about the truth of our spiritual nature. When we pray, the words formed silently in our minds ought to be simple, uncomplicated, sincere, and calm.

To start a Spiritual Mind Treatment, sit quietly and describe Divinity to yourself in a way that feels authentic and clear. Follow up by describing your relationship to Divinity. Next, try to imagine how Divinity sees you, and rejoice in that. All that remains is to remember that you and I don’t put the power into a prayer; rather, there is a spiritual Law of Mind that acts upon our thoughts. This should relieve us of any sense of effort.

Next week we will explore the role of affirmations and denials in prayer.

Warm regards,

Dr. Edward Viljoen, the author of The Power of Meditation, speaks at The Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa

I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
