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.Read more ›
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.

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!

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.
