Prayer in the Aquarian Age

Prayer in the Aquarian Age

As we move into the Aquarian Age, we have begun to recognize prayer as a direct form of communication with the divine. It is the art of establishing and nurturing a relationship with the unknown. It helps the individual to align with the Infinite. 

In the Aquarian Age, prayer is not a desperate plea for help from some power outside of you, but the clarification of intent and purpose as we project and create from the innermost self, in alignment with the divine. There are key differences between prayer as it was known in the Piscean Age and prayer in the Age of Aquarius. 

“The secret of prayer lies in trying to become completely absorbed in the recess of the soul.”
-Vinoba Bhave 

In the Piscean Age, prayer was often a request for someone or something higher to come in. The worldview implied that God is separate from you, and was often accompanied by a fear of this unknown. Prayer was associated with ritual and religion, rather than being born of spontaneity and love in action. 

In the old age, prayer was directed towards the desired outcome; in other words, we would pray towards a specific end. The prayer often came from the head, and what we thought was best for us—not the heart. Prayer was often motivated by desperation or insecurity, moving from inside-out, and directed to an outside source. It was as if we were begging for or asking something of a distant deity. 

As we move into the Aquarian Age, we have begun to recognize prayer as a direct form of communication with the divine. It is the art of establishing and nurturing a relationship with the unknown. It helps the individual to align with the Infinite. 

In the Aquarian Age, we use prayer to access the unknown. We recognize the inherent unity of the Infinite and the self. The desire is not to achieve some particular result, but to be desireless; the prayer thus comes from the timelessness and spacelessness of the heart. 

Within this paradigm is the knowledge that God is neither outside nor inside me, but God is me. Prayer is not just an action; it’s an attitude. There is no separation between the self and infinity, and as the pure expression of the heart, prayer is the conscious attunement with this unknown. The prayer opens the heart to Infinity, and the Word, spoken or unspoken, moves the Universe. 

So call upon the unknown! Bow your head and pray from the heart. Prayer is beyond time and space, a call to the higher self, and a request that the Infinite comes through for the finite. To pray is to call upon yourself to be yourself.
