Spiritual development is an important part of our life and daily schedule is to be maintained for proper development and growth both mentally and spiritually.

On the path of realization of the divine rituals are not necessary  but rituals form a slow way of providing the mind  solace and peace to a great extent. It is only when the rituals and forms are dropped that the divine is found. It is not to be sought rather it is part of you and you have to recognize YOU in true form then only the divine light can flow through.

When the rituals are done for the simple reason that you born in a particular caste creed or religion then it is mechanical and you might never get results. When the same ritual is done for the benefit of the Inner Self, without any malice, biasness then the self is lost and the mine is discarded and World becomes a universal family. Divine is for the world and when are for the world divine flows to us.

One should not drop all the rituals just for the sake of it, like one had taken up the ritual for the sake of it or in a preconditioned or presumed manner. Slowly understand the value of the rituals then flow with it. Truly one never has time for anything in this world yet one cannot have a ‘Hi and Bye’ God for you; one  has to take out time when in bathroom, in toilet (yes even there is Divinity there, he created this system of throwing out the waste), while having tea, , breakfast, lunch, dinner, playing games on computer, talking to people (you can visualize and feel divine here), so much time yet you say time is not there. Yes time is only the ritual but for divine one who is going to decide your life and after has to get more time. Even if you are able to remember Divine by any name during these small gaps you have given him more than half a day of your time. 

Follow the rule of “Me 50 and God  50″. Make God a partner in lie, share with him all and let him flow out to you to resolve many such things in your daily routine. 

Prayer Style:-

A prayer forms the basis for spiritual development. Prayer is not something which is related to asking the divine for material benefit rather prayers are as intimate as the person you the most. During the prayer he who prayers becomes the true seeker of truth and the divine become the truth.

Some important things to be remembered:

  • Prayer has to have a distinct intimacy. Be a seeker not a asker, be like a child innocent and pure for prayers will answered

  • Pray regularly. Pray before decisive moments, beginning day with it and even before end of the day. Prayers are the best things in times of human weakness and death.

  • Pray for giving thanks.

  • Believe that the Lord is there to protect and heal, he is a saviors and protector.

  • Do not pray verbally it has to be from heart and the physicality should lose its relevance.

  • Pray to forgive, pray to provide peace, pray for family, pray for friends, pray for relatives, pray for all. Donot pray based on the feeling or passing emotions. When it not based on feeling or passing emotions then it may or may not have words yet the prayer is answered

  • Prayer should be done with complete faith  

  • The prayer should be steady and preserving. Even if there is no answer comes when no relief is found believe and pray.

  • For any prayer to be effective it is necessary to have faith in divine, concentration of the mind, positive thinking both before and after the prayer. If a restless person prays then the neither purity is there neither faith so rarely do the prayers get answer.

  • Meditate before prayers:

    • Focus attention at the center between the eyebrows and say the prayer mentally with the deepest devotion of your heart.

    • Repeat the prayer until it becomes one with your consciousness.

  • Pray for five hours daily and you might become the richest man alive but prayers will not be answered

Walking the path of self is a condition but being on the path of selflessness brings one about to the pathless way. Come on the way of knowing the way and in the process bring about a change within to get liberated.
