There are many people in the world who pray to Almighty daily, however out of them there are many who are not sure as to why they are doing it or how will they benefit from it. Some think that regular prayers will keep HIM happy with them and they will not face HIS wrath. Others think their wishes will be fulfilled if they pray regularly, or that they will go to heaven after death.
Before we get deep into this whole issue of whether to pray or not to pray, we need to firstly understand that, most of us who remember God are not fully clear about who He is, what He is like, what He does and doesn’t do and what is our relationship with Him . Because of this lack of clarity there is a distance between the devout and God.
As a result of this, they see Him as an entity far superior to them in terms of qualities and powers, and far removed from them in physical terms. Secondly, because of lack of spiritual awareness, those who pray do not remember that they are souls, and that God, the Supreme Soul, is their father and as HIS children, we are heirs to HIS wealth of powers and virtues which HE loves to give to HIS children so that they can become free from all sorrows and wants.
So, in that sense, this godly inheritance is naturally ours and hence we need not beg or pray for it, because HE himself comes to this world towards the end of the Iron Age and tells us how we can claim this inheritance from HIM.
He teaches us the unique art of “RajYoga” which helps us to connect with Him and receive all his powers and virtues, which gradually strengthens our original qualities of purity, peace, bliss, power and love. This inheritance is God’s gift to those of HIS children who live according to HIS directions at the present time and make themselves worthy of going to the divine world that dawns on earth at the beginning of each cycle of time. The time to claim this inheritance is now. So what are we waiting for ?
