786…destiny & the secret of TRUE prayer

https://i0.wp.com/www.amritapuri.org/photos/0903mysore/09mysore24.jpg

it is said in some mystic circles “if you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans.” in the Holy Quran God has said “God plans and man plans, surely God is the best of planners.” my father once said to me “life is what happens to you while you make plans to do something else.” there once was a guru who had a favorite disciple. one night the guru dreamed that the angel of death would come for the disciple the next night. upon awakening from the dream he quickly summoned the disciple and told him to immediately go to the next village until he sent for him. without asking any questions, and having complete trust in the guru, the disciple left for the next village. ah ha, the guru thought, now that my disciple is gone when the angel of death comes here, he will be safe. that night the angel of death showed up with a smile on his face, which was most unusual for the angel of death who never smiled. the guru asked “you are a being with no feelings or emotions, why such a big smile on this night.” the angel of death replied “God plans and man plans, my appointment with your disciple is tomorrow night, in the next village.”saying this the angel vanished!

whatever will be must be. Gods plan for our life is sure to come to pass. the way to have peace, is to put your life in the hands of God, and trust in Her plan. at times we may think that our life is completely out of order. this is IMPOSSIBLE. our beloved prophet Muhammad(alay he salam) once said “the pen has been lifted, and the ink is dry.” the fate and destiny of mankind was written a long long long time ago, before we even came to this earth. some say that fate and destiny are sealed… prophet Muhammad left one important KEY on how a believer can change there fate/destiny. in one hadith(saying) prophet Muhammad(peace and blessings be upon him) said “the only thing that can out run destiny, is the prayer of the true believer.”

this leads one to think that by true prayer to God, the destiny can be changed…the next question for a seeker then is “what is true prayer?” true prayer is intention + focused thought/words + feeling. the secret of true prayer is feeling. without feeling, prayer is only lip service that does not go past the first heaven(the mind). feeling/emotion is the link between the conscious mind(man) and the subconscious mind(God). this type of payer reaches to true Self, which is God, on the subconscious level, thus producing and effect on the physical plane. there are 3 ways that God answers prayers. 1st-God answers it the way you have asked. 2nd-God answers it by removing something negative that was going to happen to you. 3rd- God gives it to you in the next life. when a prayer is answered in the 2nd or 3rd way we ofter think that the prayer was not answered because we did not see the result/change on the physical plane. it is said by the wise “sometimes when God wants to punish us, He gives us what we ask for.”

  1. AAAAH! One of my favorites, “If you want to make God laugh, make plans”. Indeed, God’s plan is the ultimate plan, and it is written. Love and LIGHT

  2. Hi..! Thanks for the post..:)

    This is actually too good…:) A fact explained in a simple manner..!:)

    I would like to suggest something about the story you have mentioned. A Guru is considered equal to God. Its something like they communicate very well. So I feel, the Guru’s plan and God’s plan never really clash..:)

    • 786 ah ha…what u say is correct ! in this case the guru’s attachment to the disciple led him to try to change God’s plan…..a true Guru and God are the same….love and light—sufi

  5. intention + focus = our power to change our destiny : )
