Hence the ultimate truth of self is that God is within us, who continuously guides us as an inner voice.
This inner process is the Meditation with prayer. All other prayers are an envelope of desires and wants, fully covered by the selfishness to please and satisfy the ego.
There exists only one Ultimate truth and that exists within us.
Never pray for the ego or selfishness, which results into the ignorance. Pray to the God, so that the Mind receives an energy and the right guidance.
It is stated in the Bible that "Knock and it shall be opened unto you.”
