Topics covered: The central longing of human beings is to reconnect with the Divine. We are disconnected from that longing when we are thinking about what we want; "The central urge in every atom, to return to its divine source and origin." -- Walt Whitman; We want to be connected to something greater than ourselves; We look in the mirror of becoming to tell us who and what to be...
Classroom Talk: 9/23/2022 - Divine wisdom refreshes the soul by renewing its faith... but not faith in the hope of a time yet to come; rather it flourishes in the light of a ceaseless revelation that within it already dwells all that is good, patient and timelessly true.
Topic: How to Transform Your Greatest Weakness Into Your Greatest Strength (Classroom Talk 8/10/22)
Topics covered: The whole of spiritual work is to enter into a completely new relationship with yourself, a higher order of awareness that understands that what it sees is itself; The purpose of our lives is complete whenever we agree to make an intense effort at awareness of ourselves; Why is it that we have no awareness that we have a life until that life is taken away?
Classroom Talk: 8/10/2022 - For those who love truth no door is locked, no secret is kept; all that is needed to be free is given... freely; and Life asks but one thing of us in exchange for this Gift: the willingness to unwrap ourselves.
Student Talks: 7/29/2022 - Key Lesson: True spiritual liberation is inseparable from seeing, and agreeing to undergo whatever these revelations make evident must now change in one's character.

Topic: Revealed: The Invisible Path to Self-Perfection (Classroom Talk 6/22/22)
There is no "right" road to follow that leads to the realization of one's immortal Self. If we wish to be one with a celestial consciousness, capable of responding with effortless wisdom to any demand -- regardless of its nature, high or low --t hen all images of such a being must be thrown away. St. Paul provides us with the reason why we must agree to die to those parts of us that hope for a higher life to come...
Topics covered: The Hero's Journey begins with discovering that we do not know what we think we know; Every human being, by the fact that they are born on this planet, is asleep in this planet, in this consciousness that has manifested and expressed itself in this world; Everything will be revealed to the individuals who really want to know the reason for their existence...
Classroom Talk: 6/22/2022 - Resisting any unwanted or otherwise painful state ensures that its concealed cause in our consciousness won’t be revealed. Further: whatever remains concealed in us cannot be healed, which means its painful effect will never go away. Summary: the invisible path to self-perfection is the same as agreeing to embrace whatever any moment has come to show us is true... about ourselves.
Student Talks: 6/3/2022 - Key Lesson: When it comes to developing a living relationship with the Divine, good intentions cost nothing, which is why the road to hell is paved with useless coins. On the other hand, making conscious efforts comes with the cost of encountering the reality of our present level of being; of seeing what we are actually capable of doing, and what we are not...
