Topics covered: Blame is the denial of the manifestation of your nature. Be responsible for your own nature and for its manifestions; It would not occur to you to look for an answer unless there was also a feeling that something is missing; The perfect answer to your pain has been with you all along, but you have not been able to see it because the pain itself is what has been looking...
Classroom Talk: 12/4/2022 - Thought, along with its incessant activity -- that we commonly consider as "knowledge" -- is a kind of dark Lego block; (it is) constantly building, only to be compelled to repair its own flawed creations. But, what is Divine in nature is not a construction of the mind that imagines a kingdom to come; what is Timeless and True lives now, or never. To seek it elsewhere... is a fool's errand.
Topic: The Lost Keys to Conscious Self-Transformation (Classroom Talk 10/12/22)
Topics covered: What we really want is an unimaginable experience of an unimaginable new level of Being; True teachings are about a person all the time being born into a new higher level of consciousness that the level below knows nothing about; You must depart from the lower level of consciousness and all of its trappings in order to enter into a higher level of consciousness...
Classroom Talk: 10/12/2022 - We are not lifted by spontaneous reactions; rather, we are chained to these momentary feelings by our identification with them. As long as our sense of self is a derivative of any temporary passion -- "high or low" -- our identity is nothing more than a by-product of the same... much in the same way as an ember owes its existence to the flame that gives it birth...
Student Talks: 11/19/2021 - Key Lesson: It is an eternal law: everything is always being changed, ceaselessly transformed into something else; but within us dwells the light of a Divine intelligence that is the unchanging center of all there is, or that ever will be.
Topics Covered: We are presently cut off from the larger world that we're meant to be a part of; Whenever we think of what a larger world may be, we are only in the world of thought without knowing it. Our mind only knows how to imagine a larger world; The larger world is above us, beneath us, and awareness of above and below at the same time; Complaining about life is not the...
Classroom Talk: 11/14/2021 - It is an eternal law: everything is always being changed, ceaselessly transformed into something else; but within us dwells the light of a Divine intelligence that is the unchanging center of all there is, or that ever will be.
Topic: Stop Being Part of the "Crowd" and Start Being the Individual You're Created to Be! (6/16/21 Classroom Talk)
Topics Covered: Letting go has nothing to do with anything that the mind names outside of itself that it says should be dropped. Letting go happens naturally with awareness of the consciousness that names and defines conditions outside of us; Is it possible to never again want to be anyone other than who you are? Yes, when you see clearly that no other person on Earth can be anything more...
Classroom Talk: 6/16/2021 - One sign of true spiritual success is when, at long last, we realize not only are we (always) standing in the right place for us to to be in that moment but -- even more telling is this: regardless how that moment unfolds... there is no one else on earth we would rather be!
We're not meant to see life through our thinking. We don't need to think about what is. In fact, why do I need to tell myself what just happened? Wasn't I there? Are you jumpy? The minute that a shadow approaches, we can't see what it is, but we think something is coming based in fear, and we dive for cover! What would it be like to never have to wonder or worry about whether or not...
