    We must learn to recognize, realize, and release those moments in which we find ourselves struggling with what has "unmade" us. Here's how one recognizes the moment in which this unmaking has taken place: if you're getting negative, life has come, and it's unmade (you). It's taken away that precious image we have of ourselves where we've imitated someone or something...

    Let's say you saw somebody walking up to your front door and they had this big brick of gold. How many wish that was true? Here's a big brick of gold: "Ah! A reward! Now I can go buy that thing. I can do what I always wanted to do!" But as the person got closer, you could see that the brick of gold had a chip on the side and that it was actually lead underneath.

    Have you ever experienced a barrage of pressing thoughts telling you what you need to do in order to make a problem go away? All of those frantic thoughts are essentially saying "Follow me" as they present their advice. The Divine never pressures a person into following anything. Instead, the Divine is always gently whispering, "I am here."

    Topics covered: Instead of telling you what to do, the present moment is first and foremost asking what it is that you love and what is it that you will serve; We are not going to change other people by resisting what they are and insisting that they be something else; Unconscious suffering involves blame, shame and judgment. Conscious suffering reveals unconscious suffering and everything that comes with it.

    We have all felt the pain that comes with resentment, anger, depression, or any other negative state. But the sense of self, the identity that seems to be real whenever we feel those states is a fabrication. That self can only continue to exist as long as we believe the story it tells us about why it is necessary to suffer.

    When you are asleep, it isn't that you forget yourself, it's that something from your memory remembers what it wants to remember. It can be said that reincarnation is inescapable if the only thing that remembers your life is who you have been. These classes are to awaken in you a memory of what's higher.

    Topics covered: Every step along the way to liberation is the same step: seeing the truth of yourself as you are in the present moment; Not one good thing has ever come out of impatience, irritability, resentment, or any other kind of negative state; We are not the way that we currently are because of any other person, any circumstance, any event, nor because of anything else outside of us...
