May I request whatever I want?
In the Bible, John 15:7 it says, “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, then you will ask for anything you wish, and you shall have it.”
You may request whatever you want on the condition that you remain in Jesus and His words remain in you. In other words, prior to requesting what you want, you should know how to remain in Jesus and how to make His words remain in you.
Jesus here refers to Emptiness, non-Duality just as Buddha means Emptiness in Buddhism. So, ‘You remain in Jesus and His words remain in you’ means that you are enlightened, or you become one with Emptiness. This implies to realise that everything, including you, is Emptiness itself. When everything is Emptiness itself and you are Emptiness itself, you are one with all other things as Emptiness. Then, there is nothing that is not you, and you can have anything you wish.
