13977PRAYER MEDITATION AT BED TIME
- May 4, 2005Offer daily the brief prayer at bed time in the most suppliant mood with a heart
over-flowing with divine love.Repeat the prayer in your mind once or twice
and began to meditate over it for a few moments.The prayer must be offered
with a deeply afflicted heart before the Supreme Master imploringg for His
mercy and Grace,Then alone can he become a deserving aspirant.
WHY BED-TIME PRAYER?
By meditating on the meaning we are embedding the spiritual meaning of the
prayer in our deeper conscioueness,in the sub-conscious,to keep it alive
there right through the period of sleep.In the morning,when we repeat the
prayer just once,the spiritual consciousness is brought out into our waking
conscious again,and thus a 24-hour cycle of permanent,uninterrupted
spiritual consciousness is maintained.It is like covering live burning coals
over with ash at night before we retire to bed.The fire is not allowed to go
out.In the morning all that we have to do is to blow away the ash,and the fire is
there ready to be built up as we want it.(CONT.)
