The structure of a human being, like that of the universe, obeys the laws of hierarchy; the closer we get to the summit, the more subtle, pure and etheric matter becomes. In order to obtain particles of this etheric substance, we therefore have to elevate ourselves, and we are equipped do so.
For just as the Lord has given us the means to take hold of the denser regions of matter, so too has He given us the means to reach the subtle regions. And prayer is one of those means.
Through prayer, we can reach the world of pure light where the Lord keeps his greatest treasures. These treasures are there for us to draw on – once we have raised ourselves to the heights, everything is at our disposal and we have the right to use it.
