  • Posted Date: January 22, 2022
  • Meeting Date: January 22, 2022

We cannot fulfill who we are -- all that we are created to be -- in an imagined time to come, any more than a rose waits for the “right kind” of sunlight to reveal -- and to realize -- its natural beauty and grace.

Special Lesson The Great Secret Hidden Within Each Moment
  • Posted Date: January 20, 2022

Whenever we put ourselves on the side of what we know is true, then the truth takes our side, lending us what is noble, needful, and divine.

And the more we choose in favor of being awake to our own True Self, the sooner we will come to realize...

Special Lesson The New Understanding of Pain that Dismantles Its Power
  • Posted Date: January 13, 2022

When we have moments where someone or something does what is upsetting to us, we look out and see a world that is out of order, do we not? And the pain we are experiencing in that moment cannot be separated from our perception that this person, this thing is wrong and out of order.

Special Lesson How to Make a Difference in Each Moment

In a thousand different ways, we are meant every day to begin to realize that it’s so easy to just run on automatic. Everything just goes on, doesn’t it? It just goes on. Sometimes it’s good. Sometimes it’s bad. But it just goes on. We are meant to understand that as long as we live from...

There are no shortcuts to stillness. There is no trying to be empty; with almost no exception, effort is ambition... and though it is full of becoming, it is empty of Being. The darkness of (spiritual) emptiness is inseparable from the Light of awareness by whose grace we are given to see the unthinkable: it is impossible to fill ourselves.

Knocking on the Door of Time: Today I spent an hour knocking on the door of Time. No one answered. All that greeted me was silence. But, I'm pretty sure as I was standing there, waiting... That I saw a light come on inside. So I asked, "Is anyone there who might let me in?" Then it seemed came a voice, from where I cannot say. But... this is what I heard: "What makes you think you're on the outside?"

Have you ever noticed that the more negative you get, the more difficult everything about your life becomes, including being able to do the simplest things? Even your intention to work spiritually in some way -- to develop and transcend yourself -- now sits in the hands of a very negative self, a dense level of self that sees nothing but darkness ahead of it.
