Praying from the Single Eye of the Heart

from an email by Gregg Braden,
... A form of prayer that has no words, no outward expression, and is based simply in feeling. ... This mode of prayer invites us to feel the appreciation and gratitude in our heart, as if our prayers have already been answered, even if the world appears to show us otherwise.

From our heart, the feeling is the prayer! ... Gratitude and appreciation for the peace that already exists creates a "field effect"- in the presence of peace, all that can happen is peace.

This form of prayer is NOT directed at a place, person, organization, country, city or event. This mode of prayer does NOT attempt to "make" something happen, somewhere where we may not agree with what life is showing us.
