Blog Action Day: The Power of We
And, of course, we who work with the metapatterns found in metaphysics know that when there’s a We as opposed to just an I, things can happen quickly.
The great Nazarene Rabbi, Jesus, is said to have said, “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them….” Matthew 18: 19-20 Let’s take this idea apart.
First, two or three. That’s a we no matter how you slice it. When two people gather, there’s more energy to make the changes we are seeking.
Second, gathered together doesn’t mean just in the same space, like going to church. No, it means agreed in consciousness. We agree that we’re praying about, say, the presidential election.
Third, in the name. This means the title of Christ, the Divine Spark of each being. Coming from the highest and best in each of us, making a we, we create faster and better.
Fourth, there am I. I AM is one of the names of the Christed Self. The Nazarene is saying that if you agree, I’ll be in agreement with you. Talk about the power of we!
Fifth, touching any thing that they shall ask. Well, here is another power of we, asking, or, rather, collective, agreed upon asking. Collective asking is powerful asking. This is the principle upon which labor unions are based. It works even better spiritually.
Sixth, it shall be done.
This is a simple formula. Asking is made more powerful by we than as just an I. The next time you want to pray for something, find a prayer partner, and discover the power of we.
