Categories: Yogi Bhajan Quotes

It doesn’t matter how you pray. Prayer is the method in which you can tune your mind. I tune my mind in one way. You will tune your mind in a different way. But remember it is your mind, it is your prayer, and it’s all about you. Prayer has no relationship with anybody else. Prayer is totally your own power to tap the unknown.

Prayer is the power to tap your own unknown to bring it to your known and become radiant. The rest is a ritualistic situation. So, you must redefine yourself. Your power is prayer, and prayer is the power. Without prayer, you are handicapped.

I want to talk to God. I want to communicate with him as a man to man, a person to person, a friend to friend, a human to human. I don’t want to feel him outside me. Also, I don’t want to feel Him inside me. I want Him to be me. That is the first projection of prayer. That is the first projection of love. That is the first projection of life.

The first sign of prayer is that it comes from the heart and not the head. 

Nobody can make me strong and nobody can make me weak. I make myself strong and I make myself weak. When I connect to my unknown with my own prayer, I am very strong. When I am not connected, I am very weak. It’s that simple. 

We pray only when we are in trouble. We don’t pray because we love to pray. We relate to God as our savior from trouble, not as our Beloved. 

When you pray you become an identity who is asking for help. You are asking the Infinite to come through for the finite. Prayer is powerful because prayer brings the entire Infinite with you.

Prayer is not done out of judgment. Prayer is just a gift. There is nothing a human can give to another human but a prayer. By lifting the fallen, you uplift yourself forever. A person thinks in ‘yes’ and ‘no,’ but a godly person sees nothing but God in everything and prays that God may come through and uplift.

You should learn to pray from the heart rather than head. We have to pray for peace. I know one secret: prayer is the power and it is a very virtuous and graceful power. Love those who hate you, be compassionate to those who are uncompassionate, bless those who slander you, and walk on this Earth in the light of God.
