Let Us Proceed Until We Are There

"If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you." Jesus (John, 15:7)

In the Lord's Prayer, Jesus explains to His followers, the necessity for the complete observance of the Fathers' designs.

The Master knew, that human will is still quite fragile and that numerous battles encircle the human being until he learns to establish a union with the Divine.

In spite of this, the lesson of the prayer was always interpreted, by the vast majority of believers, to be an easy recourse for obtaining celestial protection.

There are many who request special concessions and mechanically recite verbal formulas. Logically, they cannot receive immediate satisfaction to their personal whims because in the state of weakness and of ignorance the spirit requires, prior to anything else, to learn to submit to the Divine Designs concerning himself.

In any event, we will achieve the moment when our prayers are integrally fulfilled. We will accomplish this when we are, actually, spiritually in tune with the Christ. At that point, whenever we so desire, it shall be done; because, we will have penetrated the just reason for each thing and the finality of each circumstance. We will be capable of wishing for and requesting in tune with Jesus, and life will present itself in its genuine infinite, eternal, renovating and beautiful characteristics.

Whether incarnate or as discarnates, we are still walking toward the Master, intent on being able to experience the glorious union with His love. Until we get there, let us work and be vigilant, in order to understand the Divine Will.
