Worship is a personal communion with that which is divinely real, with that which is the very source of reality. Man aspires by worship to be better and thereby eventually attains the best.” [UB 196:3:22]
Teacher Uteah: “Because you live in an evolutionary world, your personal evolution depends on the fashion you lead your life—the direction of your focus. It is the reason why spiritual growth or decline are the ever-present alternatives in your ongoing development.
“Certainly, deep within their heart, everyone has the natural desire to become better—not worse. However, it all depends on the role-models they adopt. Are they worthy of their admiration? If so, then good developments should take place in their life.
“Unquestionably, the worthiest object of your worship is the Divine—the primal Source of your being, and the Instigator of all truth, beauty, and goodness. Aren’t you subconsciously irresistibly drawn to their manifestations?
“Sadly, many of you have developed amnesia as to their true nature and have significantly lowered their standards for happiness. By doing so, they will never be able to relish in the blissful state that ensues from intimate communion with The One.
“How do you think that Jesus was able to lead such a successful life? Didn’t He spend daily periods of communion with His Heavenly Father—experiencing Him not a remote spiritual acquaintance, but as the most real inner Presence who liberally seeded of Himself within each of His human offspring?
“Go back to the very root of your being—that Divine seedling that is so eager to break through the fertile soil of your soul. Like any seed, it requires the loving and watchful care of the gardener to thrive. How do you relate to the Divine in you? Do you live oblivious of His Presence? How then could you be guided to greener spiritual pastures?
“Worship directs your attention to what truly matters in your life experience. The spiritual magnetism of the Divine, once activated by your intentions, starts emitting an ever-stronger force of attraction. This spiritual radiation cannot but prompt you to work at your self-improvement diligently. The more you grow in truth, beauty, and goodness, the more you live in sync with the life force that courses through your being, loving you, unconditionally.”
