This little bear was trapped in a plastic bag at the local goodwill. He was trapped in the position of scrunching up his energy and sending it all out of himself to a satellite energy (an outer concept of God) to use as it will. He is now still as reverent as ever.
He loves God and respects all life just as much as when he is on his knees. But he is not trapped in a position of unworthiness. His knees feel better. So many people I have helped with their knee issues have spent lifetimes on their knees praying to God. It has left them feeling helpless, unworthy and broken in their own body. This is the plight that was depicted in this sweet bear.
God is among us. Opening up our energy and being present in all that we do is a concentrated form of prayer. It is healing to all. It is much more difficult to stay present with the person in front of you and your surroundings all day long, than it is to just send God a laundry list of wants and needs.
At the end of the day. Lavishing praise on an omniscient God is not necessary. God knows all. God knows our intentions in all moments. Being mindful of this all day long is more truthful and sincere than debasing ourselves at the end of the day. If we have not honored God in all beings, why should he listen to us.
Prayer is an interactive practice. Some people understand this. Nature and animals live this. That is why you don’t hear any gossip among animals. It is not in their nature. Prayer for humans can be as complete as well. They need to simply edit their thoughts, speech and actions in every moment.
Each word, thought and deed must have a caliber of truth and kindness to be heard in the presence of God. Since God is everywhere, and in everything, our prayers do not need to be sent outside of us but we must imbue our very atoms with love so as to invite God into our countenance. This is the most sincere form of prayer. Honor all beings as a reflection of God. This is the way to truly honor God. God loves all beings. If you love all beings too, you are more Godlike than sending messages from afar.
