What is a prayer if it isn’t answered? Simple souls pray for obtaining various things. They also pray for healing and forgiveness. Well and good. If we can open our hearts to our own parents, wives and children the idea of God is the right place where we speak our needs out.

There is another kind of consciousness at work here. It is an universal consciousness which envelop all and also the Cosmos. Cosmic Mind, it is called. Man thinks therefore he is at home in that mind. Those who believe in God(or Allah or any other) may read it as follows: I think therefore I am in His mind.
