Any activity, any progress we make on the path of real spirituality, is eternal. It is never lost. Even if we forget it sometime, it is still an investment that is waiting for us, whenever we turn to it. If you make 70% spiritual progress and your life ends, you are guaranteed by the laws of God to begin your next birth at 71%. Therefore, when prayers are offered from the heart with sincere devotion, they become a very integral part of the soul’s journey.
