In the evolutionary transit in which the species is experiencing its... self-destruction, the Prayerful Call asks the listener what is his or her participation in diluting those impunities of aggression, of deterioration; and how to become, each prayerful listening, a possibility of hope and "redemption".
Assuming one’s own responsibility based on our attitude, our level of coexistence, our participation; assuming that responsibility with a liberating sense. There is no need to make noise, no need for loud protests.
It is necessary to testify, and bear witness.
Witnessing and testifying to what corresponds to each one of us, to develop and improve our virtues, to amplify our participation. Without demands and without applause; that kind of applause that is given for... because they are free.
Let the applause be deserved.
But, certainly, the Prayerful Call to those who listen, not only pursues personal clarity, the impression of a constant renewal, but implies, "also", an intention, a vocation, a projection towards what is deteriorating, towards what hurts, suffers and... incapacitates!
All this, is distributed in our species, in our living space on this planet.
Consequently, listening to the Call, through our purification, takes responsibility -to the appropriate degree- for that urgent need that the species demands.
It is easy to evade and to think, "that is not my problem, those are other people's problems". But the one who listens to the Prayerful Call, does not feel "other", or that “he is not part of others”. He is in everyone!
It is in everyone, in such a way that the prayerful flow does not remain only in our troubles, which seek remedies, help... Which is fine!, but it cannot remain there.
The Prayerful Call... is universal to the listener, it transcends our individuality and sends light to illuminate the dark hardship that we hear, that we read, that we know is there, that continues.
It is our duty, as intermediaries of prayerful listening, that we give channel to this privilege... and to expand it to the need; that the message flows and does not run out there, in us, but the intention is towards... living, towards life of all living beings... and even more strikingly to those we know are: hungry, persecuted, prisoners, pre-suicidal, immigrants, arrested, overwhelmed...; the lost forgetful ones...; those who are unable to listen...; those who are selfish and pursue...; those who feel overbearing and punish for their will, for their certainty of "truth"...
Countless processes are involved in this self-destruction of the species.
And if the Prayerful Call demands us, and we listen to it with these intentions, with these proposals, we can see that, while a vast majority will enter into desolation, a sufficient minority will enter into redemption. And we, the intermediaries who listen, are the bearers of it.
Perhaps one might think: "Ugh! Another new responsibility!”. But certainly, it must be said that "it is not another", it is the one we owe! It is the one we needed in order to get rid of egomania…
It is the one that calls us to universalise ourselves! It is the one that allows us praying, to transport to offer... to the unknown or to the known that needs; such as those we have mentioned above.
You have to get rid of this idea of "I can't do anything", "I can't do anything else".
The Prayerful Call awakens to the listener... to his or her intermediation capacity: anonymous, silent... but evident! And even more: with the possibility of being verified, if our belief is true, if our intention is not profitable, if we do not make ourselves protagonists... but we only transport the virtue of serving. "Transporting the virtue of serving". Without losing our vocations, our tendencies, our daily practices, our daily activities, of being; those that demand of us "that there is nothing left to do".
Woe to those who have nothing to drink! They lack water. Our intentional vapour, by breathing, becomes… dew, it becomes a possibility.
Woe to those -so many- who have nothing to chew!; whose mouth is already dry -like a spring-, without saliva, cracked. An intentional memory, present! in our chewing; in the appreciating pleasure of what we have. If we are willing, it will not prevent us from liking, but it will enlarge by the intention... and it will expand to the need. And magically there will be conditions, coincidences, luck, so that fractions will be modified... and the bread will reach the mouth.
Oh!... Oh, the desperate ones who indecisively live, surrounded by resources but... with an unsatisfied conscience, with labels of maniacs, neurotics, depressive, anxious, , anguished... Multitude! They feel unable to see the road.
And we are not spectators of that! We shouldn’t be! We are... contributors of suggestions, intentional presences, based in the faith of listening!... that comes.
Oh! Those who lie in pain, suffering... dependent on remedies, cloistered among machines, rationalisms of diagnosis and prognostics: in that encapsulated environment in which nothing is seen but what is scrutinised, described and written.
Oh! There... there go our intentions, for the awakening of all the suffering, painful people.
The Creator Mystery is not indifferent, although it may seem so. It is a contributor, and it does it mysteriously through us.
Just... just an instant -which is less than a second- of vital, of vitality intention!, is an ocean of fresh water, which is healthy.
And surely, we will not see the result, or we will!.... But neither do we see that Merciful Creation and know that it is there. And it communicates us, it clarifies us, our commitment to humanity.
