CHENNAI: Prayer is something that we all do — irrespective of who we are or where we are. However, most of us pray only when we face sorrow. Not many of us know that most of our sorrows are a result of body consciousness that is manifested in the form of vices like greed, anger, ego, lust and fear. If we get rid of these vices, we will come to realize our true identity — which is that of a peaceful being of light.
Due to various external influences and negative habits formed over many years, we have forgotten who we really are. One must go back to the original qualities of the self and start performing actions based on that original consciousness, called soul consciousness and this is not possible without understanding spirituality deeply.
To start with, we need to ask these questions — “Who am I?” and “Who is the almighty?” and once we get to know that we are the soul and He is the supreme soul, having a heart to heart conversation with Him will not only let go off all our worries, but it will also make us able to trust ourselves, others and the almighty.
But, before getting onto this sojourn, we should remember that a clear connection with Him would require renouncing all negative habits. When we experience the true love and understanding that comes with renouncing negativity from within, it becomes very easy to experience a wholesome life that we know will bring guaranteed satisfaction in the company of our eternal friend, guide and liberator, the almighty. So, let us start this magical process of transforming the self from old to new in order to establish a happier world.
