  • Posted Date: September 29, 2022

The mind that wants to know the truth of something, and that's willing to do the work required for such a discovery, will inevitably find that for which it is searching; our highest aspirations are reflections of unrealized possibilities. All scripture, from the east to the West, confirms this timeless truth: We need only ask, and it shall be given.

But this kind of self-laceration is a Trojan horse within whose dark recesses lies...

Special Lesson Participate in the Abundant Nourishment of the Present Moment
  • Posted Date: August 18, 2022

At some point, our appetite for a life that will satisfy or stimulate us can no longer be fulfilled by the life that we see around us. It just doesn't work anymore. We've tried and tried to find ways to feed ourselves, but what we have found (mostly) is that with all we've done from ourselves based on how we look at life, we never feel "I don't need anything more than this right now."

Every day we are attacked by a multitude of pains, so frequent and so familiar we don't even question them. In fact, we accept them as friends, as something to occupy us. These pains can range from petty irritations to the anxiety we feel every time we write a check and see our bank balance decrease, to concerns about our health.
