In 1991 he became The First Technical Operations Manager for Cisco Systems, where he led the development of the global support team assuring the reliability of the internet in its early days. For more than 22 years, Gregg has searched high mountain villages, remote monasteries, and forgotten texts to uncover their timeless secrets.

"There's almost a universal sense that we have ancient magical powers within us. From the time we're children, we fantasize about our ability to do things that are beyond the realm of reason and logic. And why not? While we're children, the rules that say miracles can't happen in our lives have not yet been ingrained in us to the point that they become limits in our beliefs." - From the book

From Christianity to Hinduism, Sufism to Judaism, prayer serves as a vital cornerstone to spiritual traditions worldwide. It has been said that prayer is talking to the Divine, while meditation is listening for the answer. But what if the body--our physical, earthen vessel--contains a lost mode of prayer? And what if sacred texts and traditions reference this type of prayer--some of which were lost during human editing?

In Secrets of the Lost Mode of Prayer, author Gregg Braden explores ideas both scientific and spiritual in the quest for understanding the mechanics of prayer and its effects on "reality". Explaining quantum physics and "The Field", Braden demonstrates how "reality" is simply the mirror of our beliefs. That is, the sum total of our experience is, in fact, the result--indeed, the projection--of our beliefs.

By praying "for" peace, Braden surmises, are we not inviting more war by acknowledging that peace is not already here? While this may seem like New Age gobbledygook, the author presents convincing evidence that spiritual traditions and avatars knew a secret to prayer that was beyond mere words--a mode based on "feeling".

The Gnostic Gospels and the New Testament were edited for various reasons, but Braden shares an intriguing version of John 16:24: "Ask without hidden motive and be surrounded by your answer.

It's now clear to me why so many prayers have gone unfulfilled: Too many of us have had it all wrong. Prayer isn't about the words; it's about the feeling behind the words. Yet many of us have been taught to memorize and recite the words, which we do; but by focusing so much on the prayers we've memorized, we have totally ignored the feelings the words are meant to provide.

Gregg Braden's discoveries now show us that we don't need words at all. In his latest book, Secrets Of The Lost Mode Of Prayer, he takes us through his journeys from New Mexico to Tibet and beyond. In fact, Braden has searched every continent on the planet except Antarctica delving into the mysteries of our past. What he has learned from his travels may surprise you; but even better, it may teach you the secret to empowering your life with the ancient, "lost" mode of prayer.

Humans tend to be time-sensitive. Often, we think that nothing of importance was thought or written before the age we presently inhabit. Gregg Braden suggests that the recent understanding of the field that pervades everyone and everything was present long, long ago and has been consistently misinterpreted. Communicating with the field is the "lost mode of prayer."

He reinterprets this "lost mode of prayer" in terms of what quantum physics has recently shown us and in terms of his own experiences with powerful masters and people traveling through the "dark night of the soul."

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The "lost" ideas it presents link science and spirtuality in a unique way.

Get it. Enjoy it. Five stars!

Format: Hardcover
THis book has provided real inspiration to me in my spiritual life. First, it helped me to a breakthrough in my understanding of prayer. Instead of prayer to an 'outside' energy for extending help to me - which sits awkwardly with my belief that we are all One - Gregg Braden speaks of prayers which are simply "feelings" of how it is when we have what we desire or need. We use the power of our intention and belief in the outcome to feel into the state or situation which we desire, and 'be' it in our imagination - and this connects us directly with that energy in the universe. (I have tried it - for healing something in my body - and it has worked!) His advice on blessing those who hurt or offend us in order to release ourselves is also inspirational. It's a clear and easy read, with beautiful images from various religious traditions to inspire along the way.

Format: Hardcover
I finished this book today, and am left with the feeling that there well may be something profoundly powerful about what he is saying here. If anything, it may be dismissed because it is so seemingly simple! We humans tend to like to complicate things. So for me now, it's practise, practise... I can almost feel what this is already -- maybe I'm just a little afraid to try it. I was very intrigued by the idea of not just doing prayer at a proscribed time, but all the time, all day, is your prayer. That's a challenge for focus and transformation if ever there was one.

The book is certainly a beautiful thing visually as well, the images for me served to heighten my feeling of connection to humanity's spiritual journey through eons of our history. This leads to my one complaint, which is that Braden's prose did not equal the poetry of the images, so the book felt imbalanced in that sense. In all though, what he is saying is certainly worth contemplating, and trying.
