Student Talks: 12/23/2022 - Key Lesson: Part 1: We cannot hope to find true peace without fulfilling the purpose of (our) life, and we can't fulfill that purpose without awakening to the Web of Divine Relationships within which the purpose of (our) being has already been sown.

Classroom Talk: 8/22/2021 - Part 1: There is no solving the mystery of ourselves without having first solved the mystery of our suffering... which is why so few become self-realized, let alone set free.

For whatever world we explore -- inwardly or outwardly -- what is it we uncover there... other than a corresponding knowledge of it; and, if this is true...
