Topics Covered: We do not need new powers; what we need is to see where we are rendering ourselves powerless; Thoughts become dead weight when they outlive the time that they naturally appear in the moment; No thoughts of a personal nature that we pick up in the stream of time have any real value to who and what we really are; Tension is a natural part of creation that...
Classroom Talk: 11/1/2020 - Here's exactly why we need a moment-to-moment awareness of our (own) thoughts and feelings, let alone what they may be telling us is true about ourselves, and our relationships in life: nothing comes "tomorrow" that isn't born in the Here and Now...
If there could be only one idea -- a lamp whose light could show the aspirant of real life the way out of the prison of dark thoughts and punishing feelings -- it would surely be this: your true self doesn't win in life by overpowering problems but by revealing they never really existed as you once believed they did. Truths such as this can be difficult to accept. Tell some people...
