BUT how to express this hope?
Prayer? >>

This was exactly my feel of things... but then if according to Mr. Purucker 
Prayer is selfish {yet Meditation is not because we are looking within 
ourselves to find "god" because I am the same as he or "THAT" (which is how 
the Absolut is described to my understanding)}... then how do I explain the 
two, how do I differentiate the two. Am I praying when I hope... or am I 
meditating? I agree that without hope one as a human being would not find 
it within himself to move forward or achieve anything... yet I am somehow 
perplexed by this.

How then is hope differentiated from prayer?
