Scott Carey: I was continuing to shrink, to become. . .what? The infinitesimal? What was I? Still a human being? Or was I the man of the future? If there were other bursts of radiation, other clouds drifting across seas and continents, would other beings follow me into this vast new world? So close – the infinitesimal and the infinite. But suddenly, I knew they were really the two ends of the same concept. The unbelievably small and the unbelievably vast eventually meet – like the closing of a gigantic circle. I looked up, as if somehow I would grasp the heavens. The universe, worlds beyond number, God’s silver tapestry spread across the night. And in that moment, I knew the answer to the riddle of the infinite. I had thought in terms of man’s own limited dimension. I had presumed upon nature. That existence begins and ends in man’s conception, not nature’s. And I felt my body dwindling, melting, becoming nothing. My fears melted away. And in their place came acceptance. All this vast majesty of creation, it had to mean something. And then I meant something, too. Yes, smaller than the smallest, I meant something, too. To God, there is no zero. I still exist!

Very few people are aware of the grand drama of existence that is going on behind the scenes of personal living. The sense of it may pass through your mind, but the actual desire to pull back those veils and take on the reality out of which you arise into consciousness is a gift from the divine. Part of that exposure to the possibilities of coming into the divine presence or that presence tapping your psyche to let you know that your life is real is the day to day creation of your prayer, the truth of who you have become in your living, the statement that will spill out of your heart without contemplation or conscious preparation and by which the divine will know your readiness to continue your journey to God Union. In this episode, you journey into that place where you are creating that prayer. Feel that space. Open the door. Special treat at the end: a dramatization of a human consciousness passing into enlightenment.

The Invisible Room Deep Mystery Podcast presents on this one page two special episodes entitled “The Sweet Voice of Prayer.”

Each episode is a deep dive into your invisible room in search of your individual prayer voice. If it doesn’t already exist in your conscious thinking, these audios will help you find it and bring it closer to the surface of your living. Prayer is not just a religious form of faith; it is dynamic existential condition arising directly out of your invisible room, the absolute spirit. Spiritual life is about bringing multiple dimensions of reality together  into a greater whole through the process of awakening. “Prayer” is the prime integrator within our interior, multidimensional landscape. At the level of experience, this dynamic condition is not called anything. It just is; it is ongoing, eternally. On the level of conditioned thinking, we might just say that prayer is your intimacy with God.

The particular items in each audio are my creation. The voice that arises out of you will bring with it your creations in connecting with God. My yogi self comes in to remind us that there is no magic in individual items; they serve only to bring you into acknowledgement of the reality of God.

There are a few seconds of silence between each prayer statement or experience, when your voice will have a chance to speak its truth, which will arise more likely as a feeling than as a piece of mental language. Each episode begins with a preparation for experiencing the deeper currents of knowing just below the thinking mind. If you are in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed, then you are ready. Just pick which episode is right for you.

In the shorter version, the prayer form is conducive to finding your own sweet voice of prayer. Duration 12 minutes.

In the longer version, the prayer form is conducive to exploring the depths of your relationship with God. It is more engaging than the shorter version and invites a deeper experience. The longings in these prayers often come with responses. The primary themes in this version of “The Sweet Voice of Prayer” are the nature of reality, self and other, God and the illusion of love. Duration 27 minutes.

A second read of this material before starting might be good, just to be sure.

 

MINATURE CONTEMPLATION

Coming into the invisible room, one learns that the spirit, the formless absolute, is real. One knows this without explanation; the mystery of knowing is the mystery of existence. The mind seeks to preserve itself in the stories of living and in the desires that move us forward. The mind cannot seek its own undoing in the name of enlightenment or anything else. Something else is needed. This 10 minute journey into nothing opens the door to such a something.

Every human being goes through life appreciating free choices to be made. We measure our freedom by the open space between the elements of our choosing. Behind the scenes, however, where the currents of spirit are more acutely felt, deeper choices are being made. The psyche itself prepares to shift its attention away from exclusively guiding its personal life and putting it directly on the divine presence as its exclusive priority. That choice, of course, is our personal choice as well. We take a deep breath as we awaken to the real currents of life arising out of the unknown. Such an experience is a good way to describe the process of waking up.

Good fortune in life is the bounty of knowing spirit, and good fortune arises out of the day to day connection between the thinking mind, the mind that has been conditioned by the mass consciousness, and our desire to awaken from the cruel illusions that are perpetuated by the dark power mongers who control the narrative of what the world is. Building a kingdom of heaven within creates a bulwark against the aggressions of the illusionists, including the benign slumbering sheep who have neither the desire nor the energy to look up from their dream stories. No Neos in this group. But here, you and I, step outside the illusion and make daily commitments to increasing the light value of what we do and to creating a counter narrative in our minds about what is real and what isn’t. All this that humanity may eventually flourish, and  that you and I will have vehicles of resurrection into the great beyond when our earthly toil has been completed.
