Inverential Peace!
Brethren, how does one ask to be tested to confront the Guardian of the Threshold?
Can we petition our Father to put us in this test? Do we ask our Mother to make arrangements with the Law?
I feel like I don't have enough remorse or a big enough driver to do the work, and I feel it's because of lack of comprehension of my real state of unconsciousness and suffering.
I feel like if I could see who or what I really am, as legion, I would feel the need to die within myself.
Moreover, how does one fortify or bring about the longing to die?
I comprehend that my life is favorable for the work and I have everything that I need, but THAT. Meanwhile, I know people who have a hard life and unfavorable circumstances for the work, yet they have the longing to die and be serious in the work. I feel like if I just had that longing, I would take off like a rocket.

There is no need to ask for such a test. Each day, your Being gives you the tests you need: focus on your daily trials, and change yourself. In this way, you will advance because you are following the path your Being is placing before you, rather than longing for something else.

Thank you, Matthew Thomas. As for my second concern, how does one work for that longing to die?
Do we get that comprehension from meditation, or do we let it come through conscious suffering?
Or is it something that we can pray for from our Father?

You will spontaneously feel the longing for the death of a defect when you really see it for what it is. That feeling simply expands as you see more and more about your condition.
