Ask and You shall Receive……


Tender hearts, holy thoughts, loving speech–

there can invoke the  Divine principle to manifest into awareness.

Jesus said, “Ask, it shall be given; call, it will be answered; knock, it shall be opened.” But are we asking, calling and knocking? Yes, we are asking, we are calling, we are knocking at the door. But, whom are we asking? Whom are we calling? At whose door are we knocking?

You are not asking for everlasting bliss; you ask only for short-lived material pleasures. So, you do not get all that you ask for. You do not ask for the indispensable! You do not pray for the peace that knows no break. If you did, the boon would be granted. Of course, you do call. But, do you call on God, or on someone ungodly? God will respond when the call arises from the heart. Your call is fouled by greed, by hatred against others, by the desire for vengeance, by the hiss of envy and intolerance. I know you knock at the door, but at which door? Keeping the door of your own heart closed, how can your clamour succeed in getting the other door opened? Knock at the door of your own heart. God, the resident, will come into view. Believe that He resides in you and turn your eyes inward.

You complain that God is merciless, that is only because you do not wish to give Him what you ought to or ask from Him what He would gladly give. Tender hearts, holy thoughts, loving speech–there can invoke the  Divine principle to manifest into awareness.

Knock at the door of your own heart. God, the resident, 
will come into view. Believe that He resides in you and turn your eyes inward.
