Action Is Bigger Than Prayer

Published

on

‘In my opinion, if we petition a power outside ourselves to make something happen, selfish or beneficial, then we are petitioning in vain. This is just wishing something would happen. When I was a child, that bike I prayed for never came; not until I worked hard for it did it finally appear.’ – Scott Osterhage, Prayer And Meditation

Prayer is believed to be the communication between man and a Higher Power. Many people pray because they believe that somehow, prayer can make their lives better. They believe prayer can help them become better people and make Infinite Intelligence/God give them whatever they want.

I believe in the existence of a Higher Power and I think prayer can work. However, I believe taking action is bigger than prayer because I realized that most people who get the things they want usually work towards getting them. Conversely, those who pray but don’t take action seldom get what they want.

If you want a good life, you can get it if you work hard regardless of whether you pray or not. Many atheists are living their dreams despite the fact that they seldom prayed. Massive action was responsible for making them live the life they wanted.

However, even though prayer MIGHT not give you whatever you want, it has great psychological impacts.  Prayer can make you feel peaceful during difficult situations as it makes you believe that a Higher Power is working on making your life better. It’s easier to stop being fearful and anxious when you pray and trust that a God will end all your problems.

Therefore, prayer can help you psychologically, but if you want good shit you must take action. For instance, if you want to have good relationships with people, you must sharpen your social skills. If you want to open yourself up to opportunities, you must be willing to take risks. And if you want to live your dreams, you have to be willing to take the action that takes you towards your dreams. Prayer will not give you these things if you don’t take action that leads you to them.

Today, people make a big mistake of leaving everything to God instead of taking action. I live near a church and I’ve seen people who pray 100 times a day but their lives have never changed because they are lazy. However, the life of their preachers often changes massively. The preachers get richer while few changes occur to the followers who believe prayer will handle everything.

People must know that the universe cares more about their actions than prayers, and it will give them what they DESERVE and not what they pray for. Maybe prayer works, but ACTION is more effective in helping you get whatever you want. I once read somewhere that prayer only brings whatever you want in the spiritual realm, but action brings it into the physical world. So, pray, but always remember to TAKE ACTION.

    Yep buddy; and action is like an active prayer, in many ways. Reaching out to God by serving humans. Love this message!

    Truth!

    You know, action is a moving prayer. It generates emotion in the people to whom we move with a positive conscience.

Why We Are Our Biggest Enemy

Published

on

Most of us blame life for our misfortunes and frustrations. We think we are unhappy because life is not on our side. Little do we know that we are our biggest enemy because we are frustrated although life blessed us with wonderful things that ensure we live well.

For instance, life blessed us with imagination so that we become creative and use our creativity to improve our lives. However, we use imagination to visualize the worst possible outcome. Moreover, it gave us memory to remember and correct our past mistakes, but we use it to relive the bad things that happened in the past.

Besides this, life gave us an intuitive voice to guide us, but we let our egos direct us towards unfulfilling lives. It also provided us with the stars to please our eyes and beautiful views to relax the mind, but we find these wonders useless.

Additionally, life gave us a mind with powerful magnetic forces to help us attract what we mostly dwell on, but we dwell on negative thoughts and therefore, attract negative events in our lives. It also created many human beings so that we support and love each other, but we are selfish, and we wish bad things upon others. We then attract these terrible things because wishing bad things for others lowers our vibration.

Furthermore, life provides us with endless opportunities. It ensures that we get whatever we want so long as we are courageous and risk-taking. However, we are afraid to take risks, and we complain when we don’t move forward. It gave us talents that can employ us and make us reach our full potentials, but we choose to work in boring jobs that never lead to growth.

Life is good. It gave us amazing bodies to enable us to experience the physical world fully. But we hate our bodies because we compare them with unrealistic bodies the media shows us. We also destroy our bodies by eating unhealthy foods, and we blame God for giving us a bad body and making us prone to diseases.

Furthermore, life gave us a self-healing body that naturally gets rids of toxins, and medicinal plants that treat various diseases, but we invest in pharmaceutical drugs that only eliminate the symptoms of our illnesses. We complain when we can’t access health care yet there are many affordable traditional treatment methods that can completely eradicate our ailments.

We are never thankful to Infinite Intelligence for allowing us to experience life in a physical realm. Moreover, we don’t live fully by living moment by moment and trusting that everything will fall into place. Lastly, we never meditate on life and realize how life always ensures that we live well. For this reason, we are our biggest enemy.

Does Polytheism Make More Sense?

Published

on

Monotheism is the belief in one God, while polytheism is the belief in many gods.

After studying ancient cultures for a while, I realized that most of them were polytheistic.  Most ancient African, European, American and Asian cultures believed in many gods. They believed in the gods of wisdom, gods of wealth, gods of nature, gods of warriors and so on. Ancient folks prayed to particular gods for particular things.  If an individual wanted wealth, he would pray to the god of wealth, and if another wanted luck, he would pray to the gods of luck and good fortune.

Besides this, some ancient cultures worshipped many gods but believed in a supreme God that dominated other gods. For example, the Greeks believed Zeus was the King of Gods, but they also worshipped the other gods.

Furthermore, while studying ancient cultures, it dawned on me that polytheism is older than monotheism. Sarah Johnson agrees with me for she wrote, “polytheism is always the older or ‘primary’ and monotheism the newer or secondary type of religion (Sarah Johnson, Ancient Religions).” It, therefore, appears that monotheists borrowed the concept of God from polytheists.

However, most people believe polytheism is a form of paganism. Little do they know that the concept of one god appeared after people unified polytheistic gods into one Supreme-being. Some scholars even argue that monotheism began when Akhenaten, an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh, forced Egyptians to practice monotheism. 

I’m sometimes tempted to believe polytheism makes more logical sense than monotheism. Sometimes I wonder if God can hear all our prayers, answer them, and guide all of us at the same time. Maybe it’s true, as polytheists believe, that God rules over other gods that assist him in guiding us, and listening to our prayers. It also makes sense that if one wants wisdom and wealth, she should pray to the god of wisdom and wealth, instead of praying to the King of Gods/God.

Perhaps God’s only duty is to provide life to the universe while other gods’ duties are to take care of us and guide us. Maybe we even have guardian gods that help us deal with life and fulfill our destinies.

Lastly, is it sensible to argue that all ancient cultures believed in many gods because they were primitive, or because it was logical to believe in many gods? Moreover, why did various ancient cultures which never met, coincidentally believe in many gods? Maybe it’s because these gods existed.

Anyway, the idea of many gods should be taken seriously because it might be the secret to freedom and understanding the higher realms. Maybe monotheism was created because it prevents people from realizing the true nature of the higher realms and it’s easier to control people who believe in one God.
