We can approach God through any beneficial action
An authentic spiritual seeker aspires to feel God in their life as often and as presently as possible. This is not difficult at all, since the human being can come closer and enter in profound spiritual communion with God the Father at any moment, through any kind of beneficial action they do, regardless of its nature, if they consecrate the fruits of that action to God the Father.
The term to consecrate comes from the Latin word consecrare, which means “to sanctify”. To consecrate means, generally speaking, to make something specific to become sacred, by dedicating it either to God, or to a divinity. In particular, when it comes to performing certain actions, consecration implies offering God the Father, with anticipation, all the fruits (or, in other words, the consequences, the benefits) of that action.
When the fruits of an action are offered to God, when God receives this subsequent offering which then afterwards will be brought to fruition through action, practically that action is no longer accomplished by that human being, the true author becoming then actually God, to whom the human being doing the consecration offered completely and unconditionally any kind of results. Thus, the human being becomes guided, inspired and supported directly by God the Father. By consecrating in almost every moment the fruits of our actions, and then aiming to feel as clearly as possible the affirmative inner answer manifested in the form of a state of intimate, mysterious communion with the infinite being of God, we can each experience, even here and now, the state of spiritual immortality.
How we consecrate
In order to properly perform the consecration to God the Father, it is above all necessary to have an intense inner state of total sincerity, openness and humbleness. Every time we offer God the fruits of an action, we must have the candor of a child and consecrate that what should be ours, to actually be an offering, a gift we offer to God.
Through this sincere state that we manifest, offering to God full of love the results of our actions, we will feel an ineffable state of communion with something that is beyond us, in dimensions and subtlety. It will manifest as a loading with an ecstatic, transcendent subtle flux, generating happiness and inner joy, which always manifests in our being from the top down. Usually, this ineffable answer feels like coming from somewhere above the head crown, flooding our being and making us almost instantly enter into a much elevated, happier state of consciousness, a vibrational state that is much superior to the states of everyday life. It’s an exceptional, a wonderful state of being.
Silence as well is an answer
In the event that, to a certain clear and firm consecration through which we seek to offer the fruits of our actions to God the Father, there is no mysterious answer in our inner universe, or, in other words, when God clearly answers with silence to our consecration, such an answer – in fact the absence of any answer – shows that the fruits we are going to offer, to give to God the Father are not pleasing Him, are not delighting Him, and – indirectly – it reveals that what we want to do is not beneficial, is not good, is not fully integrated into the divine harmony of nature. In such a situation, it is wiser to refrain from this action.
Always, insofar as we are able to realize, the choice to beforehand consecrate the fruits of an action to God the Father ultimately results in a sui-generis mysterious dialogue with Him, a dialogue that is for us constructive and enlightening, even when God the Father answers us with silence. But we can be absolutely sure that, when God answered us affirmatively to the consecration we beforehand made – and which is always valid for 24 hours from the moment we received the affirmative answer – then He is ceaselessly supporting us in carrying out that action.
When we perform three or even more consecrations for the same divinely integrated action, to which we have received an answer from the first time, cumulative effects will appear. But, if we do not receive an answer to the consecration, it is not appropriate to repeat it, because if God has told us no, then no is no.
Consecrating the fruits of a certain beneficial action to God the Father, which is accompanied by a sufficiently clear affirmative answer, makes afterwards appear in the universe of the human being a multitude of beneficial, mysterious, multiple effects. These effects most often cannot be clearly analyzed but always, without exception, one can observe the immense differences between the actions done without prior consecration, and those done with consecration of the fruits. If we will consecrate in this way, even if we do not know any complex metaphysical theory, even if we do not have philosophical knowledge, or we did not have an interest in knowing or practicing any religion, or we did not study any book on the human relation with God – or perhaps we do not even have a clear and firm belief in God, even if we do not know what karma means, still, if we will honestly proceed in this manner, we will notice something totally amazing, something miraculous occurring in our being.
As an important practical aspect, the sacrament of consecrating the fruits of our actions, whether to God the Father or to another beneficial subtle entity, allows us to completely free ourselves from the effects or, in other words, from the subsequent “chains” of our actions. By consistently doing so, through systematically performing the complete consecration of the fruits of our actions, best to God the Father, there will be no further karma for us (the consequences that always occur, according to the Universal Law of Cause and Effect, after any action performed without consecration).
We should not forget that everything that does not have the support of God the Father, the support of the Supreme, can only be ephemeral. ‘A grapevine planted outside the Father does not come to life. it will be plucked out with its roots and eventually will perish.’ (From ‘The Gospel of Thomas’)
