Student Talks: 4/8/2022 - Key Lesson: Practicing the Presence -- working to remember the truth of yourself -- doesn't necessarily change the kind of events that come to you; that's not how it works. But, what your inner work does change is for whom -- upon what 'I' -- will these events fall and, accordingly, the purpose they serve.
Topics covered: Reality, inner and outer, is a lot bigger than our thoughts about it; We have an innate longing to belong to something greater than ourselves; Thought is the limitation, not the way to transcend limitation.

In this answer to a viewer's question, "letting go" author Guy Finley explains that we are working for the wrong master whenever our intention is to gain a worldly reward as the result of our work.

The following 7 Golden Rules of True Self-Fulfillment are not the same as the laws that govern this world; nor are they what govern the lives of the vast majority of the men and women who crawl upon it. As is true of all creatures, these individuals have the life they serve; by law, their nature is their experience.

Topics Covered: Your world around you is determined by the way you perceive it within you. You are meant to be nourished from the inside-out, not the outside-in; You are meant to be a part of the ceaseless stream of life, always being made new; We have to understand that we carry around a pernicious false belief, which is that whatever just happened wasn't supposed to happen...

There is a level of life that we are a part of...
