Joining our hands (heart and mind) together - the meaning of prayer

Daily Meditation:  Tuesday, November 19, 2019

Prayer is not limited to saying words. Why is it that very often when people pray they spontaneously join their hands together? When they use this gesture, they instinctively find the deep meaning of prayer: one hand represents the mind and the other the heart. For a prayer to be powerful, it has to come from the mind and from the heart, from thought and feeling, that is, from the two principles – the masculine and the feminine. That doesn’t mean that you have to bring your hands together physically when you pray. You can pray with or without joining your hands… and some people also pray with their hands open at face level, palms facing forward; like that, the arms and the head together form the Hebrew letter shin ש. You can pray in any posture; what counts is not the physical attitude but the inner attitude, the participation of thought and feeling. Nor are the words the most important thing when you pray. They are important, of course, but only if they are also brought to life by thoughts and feelings on the psychic plane.
