Topics covered: The only reason that people hurt others is because they are in pain themselves; Judging another person, even if only in your own mind, is a form of punishing that person; There can be no object without a subject. There can be no sound of a tree falling without someone who hears the sound. There can be no feeling of irritation without someone who feels the irritation.
Classroom Talk: 2/22/2023 - Any form of some painful, or otherwise conflict-filled negative reaction only persists -- as such -- in a world whose creator assists with -- and supports -- the reason for the continuation of that suffering.
Student Talks: 1/20/2023 - Key Lesson: Negative reactions have no awareness of themselves at all, which means not only are they blind, but neither have they any awareness of how they are complicit in the continuation of the pain inherent in the condition they protest.
Topics covered: If you respond to a truth that you have read or heard, it is because there is a corresponding part in you that is a reflection of that truth; Resistance comes before any negative reaction. And the source of unconscious resistance is unconscious comparison; Whatever it is that resists any disturbance is already there in our consciousness before the event. The disturbance simply stirs the nature that resists it.
Student Talks: 12/2/2022 - Key Lesson: Reactions are not actions, any more than an echo is the cause of its own sound... which means: we cannot escape moments we resist, any more than it's possible to outrun our own shadow.
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.

The problem is that nobody understands the reason for it, which is why unnecessary suffering continues; The more that we listen to the temptation to follow the choices that appear to try to change what disturbs us, the more everything remains the same; It is the choices you make that lead to the very conditions that you feel trapped by...
Classroom Talk: 11/16/2022 - Here is the self-evident, but seldom -- if ever -- admitted reason why we must do the difficult inner work needed for real self-transformation: if we don't rise above our present level of consciousness, we gradually come to incarnate the very weakness we claim to despise within us. To see the truth of this provides us with a reason, the will and the courage...
Topic: A Powerful Revelation to Help You Release Painful Negative Reactions (Classroom Talk 11/2/22)
Student Talks: 11/4/2022 - Key Lesson: There is a proportionate and direct relationship between the degree of an inconsolable pain -- some form of disquiet that's pretty much our daily companion -- and misunderstanding the real purpose of this life we have been given.
Topics covered: The more that you participate in a dark interior dialog, the darker it becomes; Anything that says you have a right to be negative is set upon the destruction of your soul; You are never going to think your way out of a negative reaction.
