Topics covered: There are three forces that are essential in the action of creation: an active force, a passive force, and a reconciling force; Is there any painful moment in our lives that is not preceded by resistance to something?; There can't be resistance without something in our consciousness that describes the moment and blames its pain on something outside of itself.

Topic: The First Step Towards Making Better and Brighter Life Choices (1/6/21 Classroom Talk)
Topics Covered: We are overtaken by the "will of the negative" anytime we go into imagination about what we have to do to escape from an unwanted moment; All creatures in nature have a will that is not their own will, but belong to greater nature herself. We as human beings are also imbued with this same animal nature that mechanically sets itself against anything that challenges it...
Classroom Talk: 1/6/2021 - The looming shadow of any negative spirit cannot follow us, let alone punish us in any moment we remember that ours is the divine right to bring it into the light of higher self-awareness... for therein no darkness can dwell.

Could the light of these truths -- the hope and promise they hold about our own latent higher possibilities -- help liberate us from the host of fears that hold our consciousness hostage? Imagine the end of all forms of fanaticism born of imagined differences...
Student Talks: 11/27/2020 - Key Lesson: Only by daring to see the truth of ourselves in challenging moments will we ever see, and then be set free by the revelations that await us there.

Topics Covered: We're anxious, worried and fearful because we live with an interior bully that we know nothing about; We have to prove to ourselves what our intuition already tell us, which is that we are not here on earth to hoard as many possessions as possible so that we can live free from disturbances forever; The acronym MOIB stands for "My Own Inner Bully"...

Student Talks: 5/8/2020 - Key Lesson: Until we stop trying, in vain, to fill the empty moments of our lives with all of the distractions we pursue to quell that ache, we will never see, let alone realize that this same sense of emptiness we fear is full of a Light, a Living Awareness that neither fears nor wants for anything outside...
