The secret yogic tradition affirms that if we focus on the area in between our eyebrows, we will perceive a subtle beautiful light, and the awakening of the spiritual eye, called in the Christian esoteric science "God's eye".
In the same context, the human being is described as having two physical eyes because of the existence in this dual universe dominated by the law of relativity. Referring to this vision granted by the opening of the third eye, Jesus says: "The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eye is generous, your whole body will be full of light." (Mathew, 6:22).
If we manage to see things through the spiritual eye, then we can perceive that the whole creation is in fact, made up of one substance: the Divine Light.
As many saints and wise men confessed, man was created in God's likeness and image, and this aspect is the very luminous/radiant effigy of our hope for spiritual enlightenment.
Through love, a person can convince God to take on a personal form, pleading for it with the following words sprung from the heart: "My God, Heavenly Father, now you are to me impersonal, unknown and mysterious. I believe, with all my heart that you will take a form and reveal Thyself to my hungry eyes, and finally you will manifest through me."
The difficulty in a direct communication and communion with God is never His fault, as He is most willing to reveal Himself to those ardently thirsting for Him, but to our own incapacity of resonating with the elevated frequencies that God uses for His answers.
Most often, because of our dependence of the material aspect of this world, an important energetic inadequacy may come up, rendering our communication with God impossible.
If, under some circumstances God answers that the solution to a certain problem that is tormenting us is precisely our closeness to Him, while we expect some material help, it is obvious that we will be deaf and blind to God's true answer.
Jesus speaks about this incompatibility when He says: "those who have ears...". Under such circumstances, the "resonating" system of our intuition is not working properly, and even if God desires to reveal Himself to us and "talk" we will not be able to hear Him.
It is also important that we understand that God answers the improper questions through silence. If we ardently seek to know Him, directly and without intermediaries, as well as if we wish to dialogue with Him in the many and fascinating ways He offers us, we have to ardently aspire first of all to the divine ecstasy, samadhi, the permanent holiday of a love experienced in and through Him.
Therefore we have to be from the very beginning just as that child who cries almost incessantly until his mother comes to comfort him. If our prayer is intense and ardent, a great divine mystery will cause divine vibrations to come back to us, as an answer to our plea. It may also happen that God's answer comes to us as words, spoken in our very language.
However, in the upper stages of this prayer, we will not experience merely thoughts, but sublime states, which give birth to divine ideas in our souls.
We may also perform the Laya Yoga technique with the mantra AUM for twenty four hours, asking God a question, a solution to a problem we haven't managed to solve, and if we reached an authentic divine communion we will see that the subtle sound we heard takes the form of perfectly intelligible phrases providing us specific instructions and revelations.
Under other circumstances, if we decide to beg frenetically the divine Mother, in the form of one or other of the Great Cosmic Powers to grant us the grace of the communion and communication with Her, that She will sooner or later talk to us according to the intensity of our adoration and worship.
No matter how "busy" a Great Cosmic Power may seem, She will answer us if we beg Her continuously. If our adoration is frenetic and ceaseless, we can be certain that any of the Great Cosmic Powers will "speak".
The Hindu scriptures sustain that if we talk to God ceaselessly for one day and one night He will answer us, or in other words, because of the accelerated elevation of our spiritual instruments we will be able to perceive His forms of manifestation everywhere, as well as truly to understand His answers.
However, although this modality is very simple compared to the grandeur and happiness of the divine answer offered thus to us, there will be very few people willing to do this small effort, compared to the greatness of the reward.
Even among the readers of these lines, even among those who believe they want and are prepared for such undertaking, there are few those who have reached a level of spiritual maturity so as to be able to pray for one day and one night, continuously, being purified in the minimum by the fire of the divine love so as they are capable of performing this technique of continuous prayer, waiting for His response.
We erroneously think that we have "important responsibilities" daily, but in fact these are merely manifestations of the demons, keeping us at distance from God. The Heavenly Father will not rest upon that who prays superficially and anemically a prayer, with his mind and heart somewhere else.
The Heavenly Father knows for certain whom we are really praying to. He knows if we pray with an ardent heart, having Him in our thoughts all the time or if our heart has hardened. He never answers our feeble or "warm" pleas, but He always comes before those who pray day and night for this.
