From the Gospel of Mark 11:24 :
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Several passages in the holy scriptures speak about the issue of requests. Whether it is the famous passage from the Gospel of Matthew 7:7, excerpts from John 16:24, John 14:13, John 15:7 or even the Gospel of Luke 11:9, Christ has emphasized this universal law of attraction greatly. However, this teaching, seemingly simple to implement, has hardly lived up to its promises! So what is happening here? How can we explain this state of affairs?
The primary cause of this enigma lies in our lack of understanding of our own Self. What are we? Are we completely disconnected from everything that happens around us? The answer is no. Because the Lord clearly indicates in this particular statement from the Gospel of Mark which brings a crucial clarification: « …believe that you have received it... » This means that each person actively participates in creating their life… Yes, one must express their desire; one must even act according to what they want; but underlying feeling becomes the spearhead for manifesting our request in physical life! Obviously, this gives us a special responsibility regarding the situations we experience: we are responsible for what happens to us… But do we always understand this? Are we ready to assume such responsibility ?
The created universe is a perfect system of relativity. Among its operating laws, there is one called the law of cause and effect, which states that every action we take through thought, speech or action has consequences. Thus, our thoughts are powerful enough to create life around us, whether it be pleasant or unpleasant situations. We are the creators of these situations and it is important to become aware of this. That’s why the Lord tells us today that we are responsible for everything we fail to see! For all the wealth and abundance of the Universe is at our disposal, as confirmed by Christ. However, nothing is granted to us that does not correspond to the energy we emit. And this energy is the substance of the feeling residing in our hearts at the time of request…
That’s the secret! It is up to each one of us to make the right choices in order to embark on the path of abundance! In order to have what we desire, we must learn how to remove from our hearts any sense of lack, detach ourselves from outcomes and fill our entire being with joy as if we had already received this gift from Heaven… Gratitude and recognition are essential tools for spiritual growth and enable us to obtain everything we desire. This is the foundation of faith! It’s not about saying « I want… » because that pushes things into future tense. We must be certain that here and now what we desire already exists and give thanks to God for it. When we constantly hold onto this sublime thought and wonderful feeling of joy, our desires manifest in physical reality.
