Livestream, Ongoing Class, Webinar AN OPEN LETTER to Our Friends in This Time of Crisis

As you are no doubt aware, our country is in the midst of a widespread crisis due to the sweeping effect of COVID-19. Everyone in the United States -- and around the world for that matter -- is being asked to comply with strict guidelines concerning in-person gatherings. With this in mind, Guy has decided to suspend our regular ongoing meetings at the Foundation building for a period of 6 weeks.

  • Meeting Date: April 05, 2020

For the greatest part, the pain and bane of our existence -- psychologically speaking -- is not just mistaking what is temporary in nature for being some permanently unwanted fixture in our life... but in becoming identified with it, as well!

Looking to, let alone allowing any negative thought or feeling to guide you through a dark unwanted moment is like asking the captain of the Titanic to chart a safe course for you through a sea full of ice bergs!

What power has any painful moment over us save for having become unconsciously identified with our own negative reaction to it. Seen properly, this means the event we blame for our suffering is like looking in a mirror... and blaming the reflection for whatever we don’t want to see in it!

The soul that best navigates this world is not the one who seems to "arrive" where 'X' marks the spot... but rather the one who departs from all places known: for that soul knows it's created to sail the wide-open seas where there's nothing to be claimed -- or lost -- because all found therein... is free.

Special Lesson A Sense of Peace and Wholeness is Waiting to Be Realized
  • Posted Date: March 29, 2020

The reason we resist virtually all endings in our life--wherein we feel as though something has been wrongfully taken away from us--is because these same unwanted moments leave us feeling terribly empty inside ourselves. In truth, it is this overwhelming sense of emptiness that we detest, and not the changing condition itself that we so habitually protest. So when things..."

Short Talk Don't Let the Fear of Fear Run Your Life
  • Posted Date: March 27, 2020
  • Meeting Date: March 22, 2020

When we try to avoid or manipulate a moment in order to just get through it, we will meet that same moment again because we are the same. We cannot separate the moment we don't want from the level of consciousness that fears it. Seeing this is the same as realizing that the fear, though we may feel its presence, is not the power that it claims to be.

  • Meeting Date: March 25, 2020

During this crisis, it is physically necessary to be vigilant: to keep the prescribed social distance from others. But, along those same lines, there’s an even more important spiritual prescription for our well-being: (It is) to stay awake, and to distance ourselves -- consciously -- from any part of us that would have us serve fear, let alone suffer for its sake.

Short Talk Learning to Ride the Waves of Consciousness
  • Posted Date: March 24, 2020
  • Meeting Date: March 04, 2020

Everything we need to know about "what to do" is always right here with us. But the mind that is always trying to escape the moment that is being revealed believes that it must think of something to do in order to get through the moment. There is no problem in the present moment. There is only a mind that creates a problem because it doesn't understand the moment...

Special Lesson Love Wants to Know Itself
  • Posted Date: March 23, 2020

"Do you know why you want freedom? To know why you want freedom, you must know what you want freedom from. And most of us do not know that idea of 'freedom from' -- other than when we're in a bad relationship. What you want is freedom from pain. You want freedom from fear. Freedom from self-doubt. Freedom from feeling inadequate. Freedom from being alone...."

Short Talk Here's Where Real Change Takes Place
  • Posted Date: March 23, 2020
  • Meeting Date: March 04, 2020

We say that we want things to change, but we usually seek a change that we can recognize. If what we want is a change that we can recognize, then we must have an image of what change actually is. And if we are imagining what change is, then it is no change at all, but is instead part of a consciousness that is trying to escape itself through yet another plan.

Until we are fully present -- awake and attending to each moment as it enters our consciousness -- we dwell somewhere outside of what is being ceaselessly revealed. This means that to whatever extent we are absent from what is real, neither can our response (to it) be real...

There is only one reason why we become emotionally negative, let alone surrender ourselves to embrace its dark and debilitating embrace: We have forgotten that we have a choice as to what we love, and whose company we keep, accordingly.

The mirror into which I gaze is not on the wall before me, it is within me... so that all I see (therein) is a reflection of my consciousness. To know this Truth is to throw open wide the window of the soul... That by the Light showing me this unity to be set free from the useless suffering inherent in the illusion of a separate self.

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. How many of you would still say...

If seeking -- even realizing -- the consolation of some comfort had the power to placate our appetite for pleasure, or if running from a fear was the way to throw off and escape its power over us... then surely, we would have realized this kind of peace a long, long time ago.

Real Life is a miracle revealing itself.

There are two kinds of people: those who "miss the mark" and don't care, and those who realize that they have missed the mark and begin to care.

This is your life, and either you want to live in fear or you don't. The only way you can find out that it is possible to live without fear is to see that you currently fall into the hands of a consciousness that is creating the world you don't want. The light that reveals this fact doesn't fear anything because it transforms everything that is brought into it.

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."

Have you ever looked down at a sidewalk or parking lot and marveled at a single blade of grass that had somehow found the will and the way to break through the pavement and out into the fresh air and sunlight?

Rather than look outside of ourselves for familiar ways to escape old heartaches, let us turn our attention around... and choose, instead, to become aware of a (lower) level of consciousness that secretly enables the continuation of (our) suffering. In this new action, and the Light of revelation it creates, awaits the Truth that sets us free.

There is really no such thing as a "new year." What does exist is the rare human being who has entered into a relationship with Truth. That man or woman is renewed moment to moment to moment. If we are not renewed, then by default we are reliving the past, which makes it impossible for us to experience anything new.
