“True prayer consists of living in the truth. Every time you connect with the truth of who you are, you are praying, for prayer is love, and love is union.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 8:III
Here we see, from Jesus, several words that actually mean the same. These words are prayer, truth, love, and union. And when we are engaged in any of these ultimate values, we are being who we are.
No longer do we have to feel guilty that we don’t pray enough. When we seek to tell the truth just always, not only when it is convenient to ourselves, we (Jesus says) are praying. And then we are living in love, and we are living in love with All that exists. That All includes Jesus, of course, and it also includes our Creator. When we sense love from Him, we are set for a good day.
Union is where we are all headed, though this does not necessarily mean an absorption into the Deity. We are One, and this is the real meaning of union. We have relationship with diverse entities, but together we are united in God.
When we live in love, truth, union, we are praying. And our prayer life will then transform everything else.
