  • Meeting Date: January 22, 2020

If our contentment -- our joy in life -- doesn’t start somewhere deep and untouchable within us, as does the beauty of a rose begin before it flowers, then our happiness is “in and of this world”: (it is) a creation of passing time that will -- as must all things that live in time -- wilt and wither away.

The heart beats…and the effect of its pulsation is the propagation of oxygen-rich blood pumped into and through the body, giving it life. The awakening soul sees... and the effect of this perception invokes a higher awareness whose Light permeates the darkness of all that is unconscious, illuminating and integrating it all at once.

Special Lesson Everything You Need to Know About The Dark Night of the Soul
  • Posted Date: January 17, 2020

Once something has outlived its usefulness in one area of life, its purpose for being in existence is no longer the same. The leaf that captures a stream of sunlight, and then transfers its energy to the tree, serves one purpose in the spring and summer, and another completely different one through the fall and winter. Its form first appears as an agent of conversion that collects sunlight....

We cannot run away from what we don’t want to see in ourselves, any more than a mirror can escape whatever is reflected in it. And yet, to SEE the truth of this fact (about our present level of consciousness) is the action of transcending it, along with its pain.

The pain of any dark moment that makes life feel pointless is, at best a lie. Ours is always the right to exchange any form of discouragement for the realization that nothing about it -- neither its doubt, nor its attending sense of despair -- is native to our True Self.

Special Lesson Let True Purpose Renew Your Life
  • Posted Date: January 10, 2020

Do you want to be a new person? Well, you're certainly not going to be a new person when you keep repeating the level of consciousness that literally runs itself into the ground... and where, incidentally, at the end of your physical life you have nothing whatsoever to show for your existence on this planet... any more than a lion has something to show for its existence...

Where is tomorrow's fear other than in today's troubled imagination? And, if this is true, and IT IS... Then, what to do with our attention now? Let it be swallowed up in the dark shadow of what “may be”... Or, hold it in the Light of higher awareness where no shadow can dwell, let alone its fear?

Special Lesson Let Go and Walk into the New and Unknown Now
  • Posted Date: January 04, 2020

We talk to ourselves about making a fresh start and even plan the path we will take when things get right... but that's it. We think, but rarely act. We dream, but won't awaken to the one fact we must face if we want a new life: There is only one place where we can hope to make a fresh start in life, and this has to be in that place where life itself is new all the time...

Special Lesson Agree to Let Go of Useless Suffering
  • Posted Date: December 31, 2019

Growing into the worlds above us - realizing the higher realms of consciousness within us -- requires that we outgrow the worlds beneath us. This is the great model, the matrix of reality, as it is reflected from above to below. There are no exceptions to or exemptions from its rule or purpose. Any appearance to the contrary is just that, and whenever we break this rule ...

Special Lesson Give Yourself the Gift of Growing Awareness

If we were to take the whole human race and try to see its nature as being one creature, what kind of animal comes to mind for you? For me, the answer is evident: humankind most resembles an ostrich. When a disturbance comes along this creature sticks its head in the sand so as not to see what's taking place. This is not unlike closing our eyes in the hope that an approaching...

When we look out at the world and don't like what we see, is it really the world we see that is making us sick? Or is the sickness we see in the world the result of the same old reactions that a hundred million human beings have had a hundred million times? The sickness is in this consciousness that has made the world into what it is.

Special Lesson Let Revelation Lead to Transformation
  • Posted Date: December 16, 2019

Real life is revelation. There is no moment in which something isn't stirring us in a constant kind of disturbance for the purpose of revealing both what we are and what we can be. But, in moments we are brought alive by the sudden awareness of who and what we have been, our unconscious reaction is to either resist or try to control the revelation. There is however...

Around and within us reside invisible and powerful laws that rule over reality in all its infinite forms. These forces of instant righteousness, or perfect balance, are always at work.

Most people spend their entire lives exploring worldly sensation. But we eventually come to a place where we realize that we have come to the end of exploring the world through our senses, and begin the process of exploring the interior world. The exploration of the interior world is mind exploring mind, instead of body exploring body, which is the activity of our outwardly directed senses.

Special Lesson Instead of Burning... Turn to Learning

Whenever painful events happen, they tend to fall on only one of two sides of a person. The first side is the denial side. When turning this way, refusal rules.
