“Pray only for values, not things; for growth, not for gratification.” [UB, 91:8.13]

Thought Adjuster: “The expression “to get the short end of the stick” means to come off worst in a bargain. Spiritual short-sightedness yields little to no return on many of the petitions addressed to the Great Spirit. Small-minded prayers miss the sublime mark of unconditional love, as they emanate from hearts constricted by selfishness—rather than enlarged by the all-encompassing spaciousness of selflessness.

Self-centeredness keeps prayers within arms’ length of the small self while selflessness expands their orbital range to be all-inclusive of the collective interests—yours included.  Because they are devoid of any conflicting agenda, altruistic prayers get instant right of way, bypassing a long waiting line.

The redeemable value of material possessions fluctuates according to the whims of the planetary market without affecting the more aethereal sentimental value of things connected with memories dear to your heart.

To pray for values is how you multiply the ‘talents’ you receive at birth—your spiritual trust fund.  It also acts as the metaphoric carrot, strategically attached at the long end of your prayer wand to keep you moving toward the manifestation of your higher self.  The fulfillment of thoughtless prayers may turn out to be a personal growth retardant unless their detrimental backlash blesses you in spirit by imparting you with a non-neglectable measure of soul wisdom.

Safe-keep the precious trust fund of painstakingly acquired values and meanings in the vault of your soul for the collective edification. While your material wealth remains Earth-bound due to the planetary gravitational force, your spiritual assets are heaven-bound. Their stunning diversification spices up the overall quality of your existence as the fruits of Spirit abound in soul vitamins.”
