Through prayer and meditation we turn our attention back to the inner light, which is the real source of our being.
We become drenched with light—renewed, refreshed and replenished—so we can give more of the light to those who need it. We build up our reservoir of love.
As we commune with our Higher Self, who sits on the throne in our heart, we can also access the wisdom of the heart to find solutions to knotty problems.
The mystics advise us to combine our meditations with spoken prayer that comes from a heart on fire with love.
For instance, the Zohar (a foundational book in the Jewish mystical Kabbalah) instructs,
Whatever a man thinks or whatever he meditates in his heart cannot be realized in fact until he enumerates it with his lips.
The spoken word activates the fruit of our meditation upon the Divine Self and coalesces it in the physical.
Every spiritual tradition has its own beautiful methods for entering the heart through prayer, mantra, song and meditation—from the quiet recitation of sacred words to the dynamic repetition of mantras to the inspired singing of devotional songs, like bhajans.
