Behind a Thousand Names
"Such a prayer is not going to be beneficial to existence, but through it you will derive a great strength within yourself. This prayer is not said as a favor to existence but as a favor to yourself. If a drop can pray to the ocean rightly, somewhere deep within its being, a contact with the ocean already begins to take place. When a drop invokes the ocean, in some mysterious way it begins to earn the capacity and worthiness to become one with the ocean. When a drop prays to the ocean for help in order to reach it, half the journey is already completed. The trust and sincerity with which a drop asks the ocean for help breaks the barriers of its tiny, narrow existence and joins it with the vast.
"In a moment of prayer, a person does not remain the same as he was before; it is as if a closed door opens for him. It is as if a window that had been closed opens and a new dimension, the possibility of a new journey, a new sky is glimpsed. Not that you have reached the sky; but standing within your own house a door opens and you have begun to see the limitless sky. But you remain where you are, you have not changed." Osho
