Prayer is not Words

Prayer is not Word

We learn from ancient traditions that prayers are not words but beliefs. The power of belief is so powerful that no earthly force is of the slightest significance. The ChiLel healing center in Beijing, China has had enormous success in treating diseases. Luke Chan describes a healing that he witnessed of a bladder cancer patient being treated by four ChiLel teachers. He was able to view the tumor on the ultra sound machine, which was monitored by two doctors. He reports that the cancer literally disappeared in front of his eyes in less than a minute as all the teachers focused their thoughts, emotions and belief on the healing. This particular healing has been reported in peer reviewed medical journals and recorded by German TV stations visiting the Center. The Center has over 600 staff members, including twenty-six Western-trained doctors. No medicine is prescribed and there are no pharmacists.

How much power do we really have? Are we simple observers or are we powerful creators that can impact our lives and the world? Science tells us there is an energy that holds everything in the world together. There is a mind behind this energy. Belief is the code that takes that field of energy and translates possibilities into the realities of this world. Imagine the possibilities of your life and lock them in your heart. The language of human emotion can be used to speak to this energy field. We are born with a feeling of power that resides in our body. Our beliefs create our reality. Our beliefs are a combination of our thoughts and emotions.

When we have a negative feeling, ask yourself what this feeling is telling you. What is it teaching you? The Essenes (members of an ascetic Jewish sect of the 1st century BC and the 1st century AD who wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls) believed every person lives in the thought of feeling, thought and emotion. When they are merged into a single focus we can rearrange the atoms and move mountains. The heart has no judgment or ego. When we experience negative feelings, those thoughts are coming from our mind, our parents or other aspects of our environment. When we speak about the language of the heart, there is not a descriptive word. If we merge the mind and the heart, we can transcend the negative. If we can embrace hurts in life, we should bless the things that cause the pain. Bless the person who has violated the trust, the verbal expression brings the blessing and we can replace the hurt with the beauty. Beauty exists in everything. Mother Teresa was an expert in this area. She saw beauty in everything. Rather than judge the experience, ask what is this hurt saying to you. If we merge the thought, emotion and feeling, we can move mountains.

“Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you” Matthew 17:20

Prayer, the crux of our ancient tradition, is not words. Your life becomes the prayer. Prayer is based on feeling. Then we can always be in prayer. That is the feeling of maintaining the powerful effect of prayer.
