How To Get What You Want From God

This is my understanding of how to petition God when you are serious about achieving substantial change.

And when my servants question thee concerning me:
I am near.
I answer the call of the caller when he calls to me.
So let them respond to me and let them believe in me
That they might be guided. (2:186)

CONTROL EYES
We all know that not eating is not the same thing as fasting. Consider how a man who is not married (or have a girlfriend) is not having sexual intercourse – but he may be THINKING about it all the time. Such a man has not acquired any of the benefits or wisdom which accrue from sexual continence. His abstinence has been just a matter of circumstances.

A corallary to that is: IF he does learn to control his eyes, then his mind will follow. After a while the passions will settle down. It will become habitual. The fires will settle and he will begin to open the well of wisdom which is available to men who practice genuine chastity.

I believe it is one of the reasons the satanic system bombards us with sexual imagery and pornography: to keep men from discovering this.

It’s the same with fasting from food. If one can learn to master the eyes first, then the eyes of the mind, the passions will follow. And when they do, a veil will be lifted from the soul. Once separated from the baser, coarser passions, the mind begins to appreciate the finer, subtler things of God.

But it takes some time. If you have been living on junk food spiritually speaking, you can’t expect to turn things around in five minutes. It takes time.

My experience is that if you want to gain the best from fasting, then you should give up all caffeine and sugar first. I don’t just mean added sugar, I mean SUGAR.

Most of us think we are hungry, but actually we are mainly suffering withdrawls. We need to recognise that the food in this system is weaponised and that we are ADDICTED.

It is not the same as fasting a hundred years ago. However, the benefits – as with the weaponised sexual content – are potentially greater. Why? Because the hill is steeper to climb.

My experience of coffee and sugar is that it takes about a month to get rid of it. It’s a fast on its own just ridding the body of those. Your muscles ache. Your blood aches. It’s a cold turkey.

WHAT YOU WANT MAY CHANGE

I think it’s like alchemy of the soul when done right. The more one willingly gives up the grosser things, the finer, subtler things of God become important. You become less willing to give them up. If they are hard one, they are prized.

And it MAY be that God will grant you the thing that you are fasting “for”. But it also may be that you will understand through the process of refinement why it is that you don’t really want the thing you want.

And when my servants question thee concerning me:
I am near.
I answer the call of the caller when he calls to me.
So let them respond to me and let them believe in me
That they might be guided. (2:186)
