THE ANSWER 9

p. 362-365
This is some wonderful, powerful stuff.  In ways that we cannot fully understand, the guides are working through us to discover more and more the essence of our true being. We are not doing this alone nor are we doing it with our limited ego- intellectual minds. In this process, we surrender we let go we allow our spiritual divine nature to take over and guide us where we need to go, even though we might not understand or be able to explain it with our thinking minds.
So we began with this prayer: “I am accepting the choice and the responsibility of the choice to call myself into manifestation as my own Divine Self. I say yes! I say yes! I say yes! Word I am Word through this intention. Word I am Word.”
***********“ The causal body in your auric field will connect up and align in perfection to that which it is come from!”
The causal body that is referred to here is the divine blueprint of your perfect self. That never changes and yet as we move from Spirit to matter, from the cau…

THE ANSWER 8

p. 560-563
This first section here describes what is sometimes called “Going through awkward.” It is that normal and predictable stage when we are learning something new. Let me emphasize it is natural and that there is really no predictability about how long that stage will last. The greatest difficulty we can run into is that our mind or our ego consciousness will express itself in very impatient and perfectionistic ways. The ego has the expectation, false though it is, that once we have the intent of performing a new task or creating something on a higher level of vibration that we should be able to do that immediately.
I realize that for some people who are gifted in certain ways that this period of adjustment might seem to be nonexistent, however for most of us when we are learning to identify ourselves in a different way there will probably be the stage of uncomfortableness and awkwardness.
This really is not very different from, let us say, learning a new piece of music or learnin…

THE ANSWER 7

We continue with the questions. I thought we had completed the question on p. 355, however I was informed that we did not, when I read it over I was pretty sure that we did so we are  to begin with p. 356 and “What will become of this planet?
The book makes a distinction between the planet, in other words this physical material object that we live on, and what is sometimes referred to as planetary consciousness which is the consciousness of all beings who occupy this space.  Planet Earth itself is a living entity that knows how to take care of itself, however it is also subject to the whims and sometimes negativity of those of us who occupy the space. That's unfortunate because as we mentioned last week, as a species as a race, we have misinterpreted the idea of stewardship. We assume that if I am given charge over something that I can do anything I want with it. Which is really ridiculous if you look at it— giving us children at doesn't mean we can do anything we want, but in …

The Answer #6

Last Weeks questions seemed to contain an element of fear and I could not help but think of this wonderful passage that I have quoted below.

“The Skin Horse had lived longer in the nursery than any of the others. He was so old that his brown coat was bald in patches and showed the seams underneath, and most of the hairs in his tail had been pulled out to string bead necklaces. He was wise, for he had seen a long succession of mechanical toys arrive to boast and swagger, and by-and-by break their mainsprings and pass away, and he knew that they were only toys, and would never turn into anything else. For nursery magic is very strange and wonderful, and only those playthings that are old and wise and experienced like the Skin Horse understand all about it. 
"What is REAL?" asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. "Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?" 
"…

The Answer 5

“May all beings be at peace may all beings be free of suffering.”
That is a Buddhist Blessing that I begin my talks with. This morning I came to a deeper awareness that all suffering and “unpeacefulness” comes from attachment. Attachment to a material object, or person, or a relationship or an idea or belief. It is fairly easy to see that our attachment to material things not only creates a barrier to our spiritual growth, but also is an illusion. The example that I give quite often is becoming attached to my new car. It does not take long for my car to go from new to used, but I remain attached to my new car that no longer exists. I want it to exist the way it did in my perception few days or a few hours ago, but that is not going to happen. So my attachment to an illusion is a gigantic form of suffering. And it is obviously useless.
The questions that are being asked and answered today are a reflection of our attachment to the illusion of safety. The mind is always looking for guarant…

THE ANSWER #4

“Why don’t I know anything? Why do I feel like I don’t know?”
Love this question. Taking the first part— if you were studying with the Buddhist teacher they would smile and congratulate you for realizing that you don't know anything. For the Buddhist that would be what is called the “Don't know mind,” the mind that is free of attachment.
The descriptive words that are used in the Holy Spirit's Interpretation of New Testament refer to this as being an “Empty shell.” Both concepts, the “empty shell” and the “don't know mind” are descriptions of a being who is not attached and is also not holding onto an intellectual description or definition of things.
We are not denying the inquisitiveness of the intellect, but what we are pointing to is that the “knowing” that we speak of is often beyond words and deeper than thought. For instance, you can know someone loves you and this knowing goes beyond words and beyond intellectual understanding. In fact, if you try to get someone to…

THE ANSWER #3

I noticed (too late ) that I had included a good bit of last weeks reading in this section. Sorry!
“Where do I go when I die?”
Is pretty obvious here that references are made to reincarnation. I do not think this is necessarily the place to debate the issue. Let us just say that it is assumed by many spiritual writers that our process of learning does not stop once we have left our body behind.
For me, much of the weight of this question surrounds another question, “How attached or identified am I with my physical body?” We have stated often in the past that this work is not about denying the body because not only is it my chosen vehicle for our work here on earth, it can also be our teacher in many respects. So one of the huge lessons I can learn from this is that I have a body but I am not my body, I am more than that.
“Is this happening to everyone and how?”
If we were to take a step back from this work and simply observe ourselves and become aware of what it is we are desiring to achie…

THE ANSWER 2

p. 345-348
I apologize for being  much too talkative this morning.
I was picking up a lot of energy around the question book that we covered last week. The person asking,
“I’ve been reading this book so far, and I can’t feel it. Is there something wrong with me?”
Questions like that spark something inside of me and perhaps this is a very deep lesson that I need to learn as well,  and that is that my feelings do not define who I am nor do they define my spiritual state. The majority of responses to life situations that I call feelings, are internal reactions to thoughts, ideas and patterns of behavior that might be very unconscious to me but are still there. They are the responses of my personality self, many times to another person’s personality self. They are real in the sense that we experienced them, but they are not real in the sense that they define the truth.
The question I asked in the beginning of class was, “What is the difference between my personality self and my divine nature?”…
