Im having difficulty with prayer. I understand it is not intellectual and that it is done with the heart. No words needed. SO the difficulty arises thusly:

Samael emphasizes that we must "beg" divinity when we pray.

Yet, Master Jesus clearly states in Mark 11:24-
"Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them."

Jesus does not say "beg". He says "believe as if you already have them." I am not referring to material objects. I am referring to archetypes etc.. What I mean is, when we pray, if we are vibrating our emotional center with a type "begging" aren't we doing the opposite of what Master Jesus says? Jesus says to believe as if we already have what we are seeking; therefore it is not begging.

I feel like begging is almost a hindrance. Doesn't our divine mother Love us and she doesn't require begging?

Do not get caught up in words. One must beg for qualities one already has, because these archetypes are in a potential state. Through prayer, we beg divinity to put our potential into activity, in order to produce realization.

To beg is to concentrate, supplicate and beg Allah (may He be praised and exalted) to activate our archetypes, our superior emotional center. We must believe we have these qualities within, we must BE through the LIBIDO, to be through love, in order for our exercise to be definite.

Faith without works is dead. Work without faith is stagnation.

This is what it means to be a true Muslim (a believer, to BE through sexual alchemy). To believe is to invest your three brains into whatever activity your perform. When we are vigilant of Allah (may He be praised and exalted), then every action in life becomes a work of prayer.
Who can separate his faith from his actions, or his belief from his occupations?

Who can spread his hours before him, saying, "This for God and this for myself;

This for my soul, and this other for my body?"

All your hours are wings that beat through space from self to self. -Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

When al-Junayd was asked about the gnostic, he replied, "The color of the water is the color of its container." That is, the nature of the gnostic is always determined by the nature of his state at a given moment (to fly from self to self, according to Gibran). -Al-Risalah: Gnosis

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami
