Excerpt About Prayer
Capacity of the SoulWe can develop the capacities of the soul by understanding that the various techniques of religion, spirituality, and science are based on certain functions and capacities that the human consciousness possesses. For instance, the technique of meditation is based on certain human capacities. The technique of prayer is based on certain capacities of the soul. The technique of scientific research is based on certain capacities. Although we usually don't investigate or discriminate those capacities, it does not mean that they don't exist. If we are to realize the various aspects of the Essence realm or the God realm, we need to exercise and develop certain capacities of the soul. It's not just a matter of being a good person. That's what I mean when I say this path of inner work is a science. The various realms of knowledge work according to actual laws that we can discern.
