Prayer can be thought of as a mental hygiene principle. Sanity depends on being in touch with Reality. Thus, prayer is an existential necessity. We are not talking here about religious prayer, which is mostly petitionary. We define prayer as a constant conscious endeavor to be aware of our place in Reality.
- Dr. Hora
And what is our place in Reality? What is the place of the wave to the ocean? What is the place of the flower to the plant? What is the place of the sunbeam to the sun? All of these, the wave, the flower and the sunbeam, are unique expressions of the source of their being. They cannot be separated from their source, yet they reveal in an infinite variety the qualities, character and beauty of that from which they come. We, too, are fulfilled when our place in Reality is understood.
