Prayer is dualism !
In prayer there are two,
there’s the self, enwrapped in egocentric
requests & desires & then there’s the mental fabrication
of some ‘thing’ like God. Accentuation & creation of opposites
enlarging confusion & controversy is the logical aftermath. In yoga
or better said in frequently & prolonged executed thoughtlessness
within actionlessness there’s ‘real’ contact ! Well at least
when one is silent & still & above all desireless
within concentrated thought or complete
openness or thoughtlessness.
