Pray to see what already is.
January 27, 2019
Whatever you pray for is already within you. You pray for balance—it is within. You pray for healing, peace, understanding, patience, tolerance, love—all that is within you. There is nothing that you can pray for that doesn’t already exist inside you. You pray for light—the light is inside. You only need to see it with your heart. You pray for peace, for understanding—anything that you ask of God is within and around you. You are not asking God to act; you are asking yourself to see. That seeing with the heart is seeing with love. Love who you are, what you are, where you are, when you are, and then offer that same love to everyone.
Yes, there are challenges. Yes, there are those who seem to step into your path to make progress more difficult, but they are also of equal value. They have an equal place in the light. They have the light within them that is within you. If their shutters remain closed, then that is where they are at the moment in their development. They are no less because of vision being closed. You cannot expect to have clear vision at all times, but it is important to remember when you have seen God, so that when you do not see that Presence, you still know that God is there, that God is within, and that you are a part of what God is.
