    1. I pretended to pray

      So here's a question that I always wonder, are funerals for the living or for the dead? In a traditional Catholic funeral prayers at funerals would be offered for the deceased so they could pass into heaven and have their sins be forgiven, but at the same time they provide catharsis for the living. In that sense, pretending to pray is the same as actually praying in terms of providing emotional support for the living.

    1. "Be still! --- and KNOW --- I AM --- God."Yes, I AM that innermost part of you that sits within, and calmly waits and watches, knowingneither time nor space; for I AM the Eternal and fill all space.I watch and wait for you to be done with your petty human follies and weaknesses, with yourvain longings, ambitions and regrets, knowing that will come in time; and then you will turn toMe, weary, discouraged, empty and humble, and ask Me to take the lead, not realizing that I havebeen leading you all the time

      The part of which which is who I AM awaits....

    2. Then, when somewhat of their vital significance begins to dawn upon your consciousness,speak these My Words slowly, imperatively, to every cell of your body, to every faculty of yourmind, with all the conscious power you possess: --"Be still! --- and KNOW --- I AM --- God."Speak them just as they are herein written, trying to realize that the God of you commands anddemands of your mortal self: implicit obedience.Study them, search out their hidden potency.Brood over them, carry them with you into your work, whatever it be. Make them the vital,dominating factor in your work, in all your creative thoughts.Say them a thousand times a day,Until you have discovered all My innermost meaning;Until every cell of your body thrills in joyful response to the command, "Be Still," and instantlyobeys;And every vagrant thought hovering around your mind hies itself off into nothingness.Then, as the Words reverberate through the caverns of your now, empty being

      This is so powerful............. the 'God of me, my True Self commanding that my egoic self becomes humble and surrenders ..

      Practice..... until the Reality of consciously Being is my felt Reality.

      Reminds me of in ACIM 'come wtth wholly empty hands unto your God".
