Leverage—the Real Power of Priestcraft

archimedes

by Michael Maciel

The world cannot be changed one person at a time. That would take far too long. No, we need leverage, the kind of leverage only God can provide.

Ask yourself, “What am I praying for? What, by my actions, my words, and my beliefs, am I asking God to do?” Do you have a vision for how the world should be, or are you in reaction mode? Have you succumbed to the notion that we are plunging into chaos, or will you switch on the engines and power away from the cataract?

You know, the Will of God can be summarized in this one, simple way:

God’s will is that you get your prayers answered.

That’s it. The whole purpose of this Earth Experience is to figure out what you want, what you will settle for, and what you can envision. That’s the entire curriculum. Will you rise to the challenge, or will cynicism and resignation take you (and the rest of us) down?

Make up your mind. Formulate how you would like the world to be. Write the script on your forehead, and stand in the Holy Place, that part of you that is in direct communion with God.

And then tell God exactly what you want.

    What we call prayer isn’t religious, its science. We bring it into a spiritual context with the ‘thy will be done’ part because most of us have seen the results of not doing this.

    I am learning to ask for things for myself. I pray for all people to move and shift to a better and better society. I like to around good happy people. Surround me with peace and joy.
