GnosticTeachings.org has made available many enlightening and wonderful lectures. Some of these lectures endeavors in explaining the implications and meanings of the words used in different prayers and conjurations.
There are for example an article describing The Prayer of the Lord or Pater Noster
How important is it to have this intellectual, conceptual and kabbalistic (e.g. which position on the Three of Life relates to which word/archetype) prior to performing a prayer?
E.g. One feels there is to much intellectual study and to little practice in ones life. One wishes to perform the Eucharist to gain energy to work more.
Does one then need to study these lectures in detail or is it sufficient if one prays the Pater Noster with much sincerity and longing in hearth but without really knowing the implications of its words/archetypes?
Thank you very much.
