Topics covered: Life contains a mystery that you're drawn to -- it's the mystery of yourself; Agape is a type of love connected to giving yourself up as a higher form of sacrifice for the love of another.

Topic: Stop Dark Thoughts & Feelings from Stealing Your Life (Classroom Talk 11/16/22)

The more you think about why you are negative, the more negative you become; Creation never stops completing itself through the relationships...
Classroom Talk: 11/2/2022 - The only thing (in life) that goes from zero to a million miles per hour -- in a single painful movement -- are negative reactions; they are the unseen source of all self-compromising choices, driven on by an almost limitless dark kind of "anti-matter" called unconscious resistance.
Topics covered: You are not intended to get around, to escape from, difficult moments; Until you understand the consciousness that reacts to difficult moments, your experience of life will continue to be unwanted; It is impossible to embrace a difficult moment until you gain some insight into the purpose of that moment; Resistance is identifying with what the mind interprets as being a threat.
