Even though I have no solid proof yet, I have "hunches" to believe that the heart allows you to communicate with "some type of low-level
gods"(this is why your prayer will more likely work if you're sincere, or "comes from the heart." However, there is a limit, and that is, this
low-level god can't really change things on a "grand scale."(certain events, perhaps agreed to prior to reincarnation, are supposed to happen), or
do anything "blatant or miraculous," for example, like allowing a $500 bill appear in front of you. Now if let's say, you want to have a
well-paying job, or you want a beautiful kid, then I think that can be granted. Also, sometimes, you will not get what you ask for(perhaps if it's in
violation of the blatant rule), but an equivalence for it.
I think the heart is your soul, and the mind is your ego. The ego can think whatever it wants, and it is your free will, and thus these low-level gods
will not listen to anything it thinks, because what if you wanted a "bad thing?"
Also, sometimes, you can think of something, and not really mean it, whereas the heart cannot lie.
What if you wanted a bad thing, and expressed that to your heart? Well, I'm not sure, since I haven't tried that,
but from what I've read, it could mean that a "bad god" will grant your wish(and once that wish is granted and achieved, you and him will get
Now the reason I said low-level gods is because it's my opinion that there exists an Ultimate Creator, however, this Ultimate Creator has decided not
to get involved(or as Hidden_Hand put it, chose to "forget" himself) and messes with our experience(this fits with Einstein's belief that there is
no personal god, as in one that answers your prayers, but perhaps there is a Creation God.)
Anyway, back to prayer, I would say that based on my experience and read, I would say that it works. However, I think the Ultimate Creator
intentionally makes it "complicated" because he doesn't want you to "abuse" it, so to speak. I mean, think about it, if everyone can just ask him
for everything and he grants it, then what's the point of this life? Sure, he could just wave his hand and end world hunger, but what if those people
wanted those experiences? I mean, imagine if you're a bunch of eternal souls and have experienced all the good things, then it makes sense that some
of you would want to try the bad things.
