    Topics covered: Every psychological pain is the outcome of a unseen desire having been thwarted; The source of your pain is the disparity between what you desire and what you can't possess; What seems like a new, reconfigured desire always comes in to fill the hole left by an old desire that was not fulfilled; There is really no such thing as a new desire. The only things that seem new are the objects of desire.

    Student Talks: 5/28/2021 - Key Lesson: Since no desire can complete itself -- by itself -- through anything it imagines -- its only recourse is to imagine "more of" whatever failed to satisfy it the first time around. This unseen cycle is the mainspring of all forms of addiction, as unconscious desire keeps trying to fill a bucket with...

    Topics Covered: There is no such thing as a compulsive pleasure; We are not meant to spend our lives compulsively defending and justifying ourselves.

What we long for...

    Topics Covered: Desire presently knows more about us than we know about it. Until that changes we will be the instrument of desire; We presently use thought to restore balance when it seems as if we have been thrown off balance. Laws are created by imbalanced people in an attempt to restore balance according to their idea of it; Nothing that is truly balanced can become imbalanced...

    Student Talks: 12/4/2020 - Key Lesson: Part 1: There are as many desire-driven dead-end roads promising to deliver us from our fears as there are fearful thoughts looking for a way to escape the consequences of the unconscious choices they helped to create.
