The Praying Call conveys the idea that everything that for us, as a species, is configured -that has a shape, a consistency, a structure, a concentration- all of it is souled, all of it is animated; everything has a breath, an emanation, or whatever you want to call it, within the conceptions of what we call "life": walls, cardboard, stones...; water, ice...
It goes a little beyond animism, though it is on that frequency.
And the Prayerful Call adds that, given our senses, we call a number of things 'configured', but our senses fail to perceive others that are invisible to us. Which may be 'pre-configured', or simply they are not.
Thus, it places us in a... -if I may use the word, although it is a very squalid one- in a practically unknown "world". And at the same time, in a particular sensitive world; both for what we perceive in a configured way, and for what we do not.
Being aware of this position... leads us to develop attitudes in our vital actions, in our way of life, different from those we have when we think we know, we know what the world is and what life is about. Undoubtedly, ignoring it -as we are told- does not imply an attitude of detachment or lack of interest or... No! On the contrary, it implies curiosity and astonishment in the face of small or large events.
If to these, and to this situation of consciousness, we add not knowing ourselves -we know ourselves relatively and subjectively- with this addition, the being of humanity is a being that is in an infinite puzzle; that does not possess or have more, more, more, more, more importance than a quartz, than a wave, than a plant, from the point of view of Creation, to which we belong.
And this allows us to realise the sectarianism that the species has developed; the position of privilege and of centre. As they used to say: that the sun revolved around the Earth. So, it is the same: everything, in the rickety, strict and hijacked human conscience, everything is subordinated to the human.
And although we realise that our presence is 'to-ta-lly' conditioned to the whole environment or by the whole environment, in spite of this, the being considers itself important, central, nuclear...; it imposes, dominates, controls...; it develops that facet called "Science", in which it hides its ignorance, but at the same time discovers its infinite inability.
But it wields it like a dagger, like a precise and accurate sword that aims, that hits...
And perhaps -perhaps- all of this is largely due to, within the Creator Mystery, to the conception that, as a species, we are completed, we are concluded; we have finished our training, our preparation. It is like someone who studies for a profession, and finally graduates... and he thinks the deal is done. And he begins to practise, and he stays with what he has found, and does not progress in his search, in his ignorance... And, of course, he is soon relegated. He is left in positions of servitude.
By becoming consciousness as an evolutionary project, not only by learning, but by the conceptualisation of life in its mystery, and its amplification –as it has been said- towards everything constituted, configured and non-configured, which, in its vast and infinite majority, we do not know about...
From the point of view of knowing that we are an expression of Creation, but not especially... important, striking...
We feel very superior to the rhinoceros, for example, which evolved from a small mammal to what we see today.
Or, socially, we consider ourselves much more capable than the organisation and development of an anthill, perhaps because we can crush and destroy it with blows, or with some destructive acid.
Is that it…? Is it the fact that we realize that we are capable of destroying...? But not only through blows, acids, bombs. No. Destroy in consciousness.
Yes. I do consciously destroy that other human who thinks differently in this way or...
No swords, sickles or hammers are needed for destruction. They are also used, of course.
But one can destroy with the consciousness of erasing this one, that one, those, the others.
A simple prejudiced, 'pre-judgmental', 'pre-judgmental' insinuation... towards a person is already violence. Because he has been prejudged. He is targeted for condemnation, for punishment.
Notice how, news is increasingly telling us that loneliness -especially of the elderly- it is a part of the vital experience that deteriorates cognitive abilities.
If... -to understand it better- if that being who feels alone, had the criteria and the conception of consciousness that we have outlined, that the Praying Call transmits to us, he would never feel alone. And even less -and here we see the human arrogance- even less when he doesn’t have another human being nearby.
We have reached a point of racism where "I am alone" or "I feel alone" because there is no other person.
But you have a tree, you have a tap, you have a hose, you have a shovel, you have a...
.-Have you ever tried to talk to a knife?
.-A knife? Do knives talk?
.-Of course. If you don't listen to them... is something else.
.-But that would be crazy!...
.-Ah, of course!
We should... we should review the concept of madness, shouldn't we?
Actually, everything should be reviewed.
It is said, quietly, “everything” so it doesn’t seem very big. But saying everything is incredible.
.-Because it turns out that what we believed, we had, we thought... Well, well!...
.- So, it is not?
.- All of it?
Which does not mean a catastrophe. Because, usually, this and that are taken for granted and then you review, rethink, reconsider... it seems that you lose what you have.
You can travel in a vehicle with wheels, but you can also travel in a vehicle without wheels.
Which does not mean that "discarding" de previous one, because another new perception has appeared, is a loss.
Certainly, human consciousness has a magpie complex.
It is said of "magpie", that marvellous... -wonderful, yes-, that marvellous bird that keeps everything it finds. It's a form of amusement. Seen from the magpie's point of view, of course. Seen from the human point of view, we say: "Ah, look, the magpie". And we end up saying: "You're like a magpie, that keeps everything, that has everything". That is Diogenes syndrome.
Yes, but it doesn't have to be configured, does it? As long as it is consciously held, the person is already full.
With a few exceptions, they all have considerable obesity of conscience.
My cousin, my aunt, my friend, the country, the rain, the electricity...
And all this accumulates like a heavy trailer that carries on and on and on... and it gets jot down and 'clean slate'…
Yes, the majority of most beings accept that situation as normal. Any other approach, such as the one suggested by the Prayerful Call, is uncomfortable. It focuses again on "spade, a spade", and sees no more. "No more", like a roulette wheel.
What a pity, in such an impressive Universe..., keeping kidnapped by the very nature of being, seeking his comfort, his wellbeing, his convenience, his security, his "his"...
The "Su-mi”... encompasses everything, takes it all in, binds it all together.
“His", "his", "his"; "mine", "mine", "mine", "mine".
A "sumi" species loses the universal perspective, because it cannot dominate it, because it is "sumi".
A "sumi" species loses communication with the environment, or conditions it to its liking without it being authentic, and forces answers it wants to hear.
A "sumi" species seeks its possessions... of many different kinds; those that allow it to command, to order.
The "sumi" has led us, as a species, into a swamp... where it is difficult, very difficult, to share, to coexist, to get along...
The tide, in the swamp, is low. It does not usually become tsunamis. The swamp gets stuck there..., and anything that gets close, or if you get too close, you can get trapped.
The Prayerful Call calls us to go out...
To go towards perspectives of a creative, evolving, changing and supportive Universe.
The humility and submission that comes from feeling myself, not a "sumi", but a supreme ignoramus, frees me from the swamp.
It makes me air. It makes me sound. It makes me sigh. It makes me breath.
 Spanish possessive determiners: “Su” is his or hers; “Mi” is mine. Su-Mi would be “his-mine”.
