And praying… in the praying call that calls us to pray… the being prepares to find itself, to tune in, to reference… outside of its identity. That is to say, just as each one listens to itself, at the moment of prayer we listen, we reference ourselves… beneath other coordinates that we cannot precise; that are unapproachable, but they are there.
I won't know why this planet is in this galaxy, nor why we are in this galaxy, or where it is going and moving, nor why, toward something called "the great attractor".
We will not know –surely never- why of this constitution… of what we call "matter", and what is the sense of its presence. But we are there!... We are from there!... We live there!...
Not… -and this is important, although it seems like… a coffee with milk- we have not gestated ourselves. We are the product of a happening that is called "life." But we have not created ourselves. We have antecedents.
And this, although it seems obvious, it is not exercised in the individual consciousness, rather it seems that the being has gestated itself and -as they usually say- "it has made itself." "All you have you owe it to yourself".
The "yourselfness" -or something like that- is an aspiration similar to that of those who surrogate a womb for rent. Something similar! Is prostitution, taken to the fertilization; that increasingly extends and is applauded as something… natural!
The ultra-machismo, right?: "I rent your belly… and take the product in exchange of the corresponding money"… The ultra-prostitution.
But, do you see? The mind is changing. And we are proposing models; they even seem friendly. And pretend to be references.
Hence the warning and advising from the Sense of Prayer, that call us to let us know… and realize that our references, even though they are an immeasurable mystery, are the real references…; that make its messages reach us by chance, opportunity, luck, the unexpected, unpredictable, the unanticipated…
We could say, at that level of reference, that the being of humanity has been endowed with what is called "intelligence"… -it has been endowed with this- to take consciousness of its origin.
But what happens is that, when the being realizes its intelligence, it becomes aware of its Power. And it turns out that it has been given the possibility of intelligence so that, in the exercising of it, it plants, collects, learns, discovers…
All these qualities… are a miniature of the exercise of our "source of origin"; of our reference. And these intelligent possibilities should take us!, should take us!… to the rewarding consciousness of knowing that we are endowed with resources to take consciousness that life is an expression that is gestated to reference in a Mystery; that is gestated for an harmonious living together, rewarding, generous. That, precisely, my intelligence and my training to exercise in my surroundings, does not take me away from my genesis!, my origin. Just the opposite!: it should take me closer!...
But… the man with its arrogance with regard to its own species -that is its model of reference-, establishes itself as lord and master, and does not recognize its origin. And so, instead of approaching to the prayerful living matter, it walks away from the Contemplative Mystery, and goes to its motivational chores of domain, control, speculation, handling and manipulation, which gestates miseries, dramas, tragedies, persecution, war, famine… and Facebook -which has commemorated two thousand million active users… per month-.
They are the new reference standards. We can ignore them. We may refuse them. But they are there; and each wobble with their self-importance. And out of seventy thousand five hundred million, two billion people !... exercise in virtual realities, in banal egotism, to sell their image!, to write their book, to seek the applause or to pour the critical acid … like Nativity scenes. The scene of this one, the scene of the other…
There are undoubtedly many humanities within humanity. Many!...; fractions of fractions that are recognized as authentic and valid. And, of course, true.
And there is no need to resort to the grandiloquent, grand groups or powerful. Just go to a person, so that she explains her truth, her forceful decision, her perceived arrogance… and that's it!
To reference oneself through prayer involves understanding, humility, dissolution of resentment, envy and hatred; it involves the loss of arrogance… and to give oneself: give oneself in the doing; in a doing that serves, that helps.
There is not, in this reference, space for the hypocrisy. It is not aseptic. "It is not aseptic". It is not cold and of a correct calculation.
To what extent has been reached in the usurpation of life… that the being is able to maintain a conduct, behaviour and stability… of balance, being all rigorously false? Appearance. And behind that appearance? Arrogance, hatred, resentment and prejudice, judgment and, if possible, punishment; conviction, of course.
And each one is in its…! But, when delving deeper into it, it already has the judgment, and the sentence of this, that, and the other. Sometimes it will say it, and most of the time it will not. It will behave like… like an immaculate presence. And even, almost exemplary. And sometimes, the person itself believes it!… And uses it as a means of a so-called "survival".
These are the consequences of auto-referencing, auto-proclaiming; and as a result, the others -who also auto-proclaim, but are not recognized by each one, but just the opposite- they are rejected or criticized.
The impunity endorses the hypocrisy. And when it is spread, it creates a bad…. movie! "Bad", in the sense that… it is badly filmed, the scenes are not suitable, they do not have the correct light… to put a few references. But!... scarcely, exceptionally, there is some good movie; and as a result, the majority of the majority of the majority is bad, we live in that hotbed of advanced hypocrisy.
And from there you can justify any… any position… Which makes life into something burdensome, aggravating, uncomfortable, painful!
Then, who created this human community of sorrows, tragedies, dramas…?
The man himself -as a species-.
If we reference ourselves a little in this Universe, in this Creation, there would be no place for such imbalance… like the pain suffered, like the anguish that claims, like the anxiety that… calls!
The silence, in its benevolence, is the accomplice of the Creative Verb. And allows us enough moments of emptiness… to notice the presence… of something more than ourselves.
They have called to pray. And with this the referential has been put in evidence.
Although the being clings to… the own, and defends its property, at least it should be conscious that this is not the referential; that the equivalents to the references are the ideals that arise without knowing their origin; that are… creativities emanating without knowing its origin; they are the improvisations that spontaneously emit… without any intention.
