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.
However we got here, there seems to be no way out of the dilemma of human suffering. Ten thousand years have come and gone since human beings gave up the savannah for the common good. So easy to identify causes and effects of human dismay; priests and politicians offer their own ways out for a little attention. Stand up and shout approval if you believe those options are paving the way to salvation. Who among us feel the pain of the race above the struggle for personal survival and acquisition of wealth? For property and love in their many forms? Yet things unseen are occurring behind the worldly veils and behind the personal veils of our thinking. Look up! Look up! Link your life energy to the planetary life line! Put down the book and spread your wings! Planet earth and beyond! Better than prowling the streets looking for fresh meat in the shadows cast by the street lamps we call civilization.
When we understand, we think we know. It is easy to be foolish since our whole capacity to know anything is bound into our interpretation of the world as being some place “out there.” Who passed that one on, or did it make its way in without my knowing? The original knowing, or pure awareness, or the thing itself, or God–no matter that we may embrace any one of these phrases to designate something we believe in, when the thing we belief is still “out there,” even as a thought. Deep within, the original knower gives rise to something to know in ever so subtle impulses. In this arena, knower and known are the same, as is the love that flows between them. Unwrap the veils when you are ready, dive deep into the unknown, where all the pieces are you.
The inward journey has no ultimate culmination although there is the moment when one stands on the cliff side of one’s personal existence and contemplates the infinitude of spirit. How did I get here? Where to go from here? Indeed you can dive into the infinite should the divine intelligence reach out and bring you in; or you can invite into your personal life the seeds of pure knowing and bring back with you godbeing knowledge and live a new reality, one not dependent upon the limitations of the mind. This episode brings in the “pure knowledge” godseed and invites those who breath it into their lives to experience the living edge of one’s personal existence and know it for what it is.
You never get over the astonishment of realizing that you are the eternal, absolute spirit walking in the world to live the life of an awake, knowing being. Yes, the creator of this cosmos, the original one, the God of gods, the pure knower, the infinite one is you, when all the mental coverings are pushed aside! That’s who you are and that’s what’s going on. Listen to the intro carefully. Asleep in our life stories, the grand drama goes on but outside of our awareness. Once you start to wake up, you feel the waves of being move through you imbued with huge desire to be one with it all. Let the mystery begin! Let the mystery take hold!
