    Topics Covered: We are currently identified with an unconscious nature that is incapable of knowing anything real and permanent; We cannot be at peace with anything as long as we are identified with what we believe peace is; Our minds are always trying to take what we think is good and make it last forever.

    Any time we feign anything, we do so out of fear that without that "persona" to protect us--to make that impression we want--we won't get what we want. This whole way of thinking is secret self-sabotage. Your consideration of the two special insights that follow will start you down the path to a whole new kind of self-command.

    Classroom Talk: 2/20/2019 - Part 1: It's impossible to change any moment that we complain about because - for one thing - the unwanted moments over which we complain do not even exist apart from the level of consciousness that always finds fault with their appearance. Part 2: The more we complain about any unwanted condition in life, the more certain we can be...

    Featured Study Group Topic for the Week of August 20, 2018. Part 1: It's not the moment that's unsteady; it's our present level of self: a shack made of sticks that's shaken by any unexpected wind... and that fears its own shuddering.

    Topics covered: What I call my personal life is actually impersonal because something thinks and acts for me; The divided mind is result-oriented; There's no winning in being; If I live and die moment-to-moment there's no self that needs to be consoled; Seeing your own complicity in your suffering is the beginning of humility; Only presence unifies; The work is not about the continuation of my...

    The pull we feel to fulfill ourselves through any repetitive action, like seeking approval, mindless distractions, or worriedly 'counting' our riches -- whatever these may be -- is one and the same as being pushed along by an unseen fear that can never be consoled by those things it drives us to chase after for its sake.

    The only way it's possible to be punished by some mistaken action on our part... is if we make the second mistake: allowing the same level of self that we followed into that 'pit' to condemn and then punish us for the very misstep that it first assured us was the right one to take!...
