Regardless of the assertion of any fearful state that seeks to convince you otherwise (using its painful presence within you as "proof" that the prison you're locked within will stand until the end of time), apply this one great truth: That fear must break down if it doesn't succeed in breaking down your willingness to test its reality. How do you conduct such a test?...
Topics Covered: We are not intended to live within and behind any kind of walls that limit our right to explore all of our celestial possibilities; We unconsciously identify with, and become captive of, self-constructed boundaries that are imagined by our consciousness; Our ideas, beliefs, and opinions are a kind of construction of an unconscious nature that prevents unfettered self-exploration.
Classroom Talk: 12/29/2021 - Only as we dare to explore and understand the nature of fear -- including how it projects and protects its prison-like boundaries -- only then will we see its illusion fall apart, and begin to quietly disappear.
Topic: Detect and Drop Useless Thoughts that Are Dragging You Down (12/1/21 Classroom Talk)
Topics Covered: Blame is the same as avoidance of seeing yourself; Every creation is given, every day, what it needs to work; Discovering the truth of yourself is the same as discovering where energy has heretofore been wasted; ATUTS is "Addicted To Useless Thinking Syndrome"; The thing that you are addicted to has power over you only so far as you believe in its power to free you from pain.

It starts with our unconscious consent to identify with those thoughts; The root of self-talk begins with judgment; Self-talk is inseparable from the moment of conflict where something happens and it is interpreted as a threat to who I think I am and what I'm identified with; No self-talk starts without being triggered...

Topic: Turn Painful Reactions into Self-Liberating Action (9/8/21 Classroom Talk)
Topics Covered: There is another, higher level of consciousness that is present for us in any moment that we are able to observe ourselves; We as human beings are created with the capacity to be aware of the divided level of consciousness that reacts with fight or flight; What we blame for our reaction cannot be separated from the consciousness that is having that reaction...
Classroom Talk: 9/8/2021 - We want to be free of painful reactions, but (unknowingly) resist the realization of our role in their annoying repetition; this awakening is a mandatory interim stage between being burdened by any form of unconscious resistance... and being liberated from its unseen prison.
