When we think we are only egos, separated from Spirit and alone, we limit what we can achieve and receive. Jesus said in the Gospel of Matthew 7:7: “Ask and it will be given to you.”
Most of us were taught to pray and to ask from the attitude that we are separate from God. That is like standing beside the ocean with a cup. What if instead we simply jump into the ocean of God and God’s grace and blessings and give ourselves to It?
Asking from our oneness with our Father God is what Jesus taught. And when we do that, we will receive.
