EPILOGUE  I would encourage you all to read this section over again—perhaps even read it out loud. Let the energy of its Truth sink into your bones. The major aspect of this last section and perhaps the entire work is about alignment. In essence being in alignment with your divine self . That sounds quite simple, but what does it really mean? Being in alignment means being in agreement with, affirming a particular truth, and living from that truth. Let us create an example: Suppose there is someone in your life that you love very deeply. You do not have to think about this too much, but essentially you are in alignment with your love for that person. What happens then, when you are in alignment with your love is that love guides and directs most of your feelings and your actions and thoughts. You notice very quickly, when you become angry or agitated or even annoyed at this person you love, that you are not in alignment with your lov


PERHAPS I AM BEING VERY LAZY THIS WEEK, BUT i was touched by this lesson and how it approached the material in our Sunday class from a different direction. The Dynamics of Giving and Receiving from Ram Dass//Posted March 10, 2017 What yogis begin to do is to change their way of thinking in order to look at the universe differently. In order to do this, there is a period of time where they must pull back from the drama in order to be able to see it. It’s like a moratorium, it’s a time when you stand back, like you go on a vacation. It’s actually extremely hard work by the way, very exacting and very, very difficult work. Now when most of us think of yogis, we think of somebody sitting like a famous yogi, like Milarepa, sitting up in a cave in the mountains, cross-legged and naked. There was snow, and ants were eating him, and the only food he took was nettle soup, and he ate it for so long he developed a green nettle fur all over him. But he was busy freeing himself from t


Rather than go through the lesson point by point as I've done previously, there were three particular points in this lesson that I found to be extremely important and I felt as if they needed to be expanded upon. If you would like to get a more concise view of the entire lesson, I was suggest listening to the recording. The thoughts I would like to expand upon are underlined in the following passage “Everybody here has the ability, inherently, to see, to hear, to feel frequency. That is part of what you do anyway every day. The difference here, in this text, is we wish you to have the experience of it so you can begin to accept yourself as an energy being. And as that happens, the constructs of control cannot control you in the same way because you begin to see them for what they are. They are illusion; they are there to do their work. But your work, we say, in manifestation of the self will b


A brief review of the past that is pertinent to the present.   “Paul is asking, “Where is the Christ in me? How do I identify this part of me that you speak of?” And we will tell you now. The Christ within you is a frequency that is aligned within the heart center and it glows like a flame and it brings to it that vibration and frequency that co-resonates with it. And that which it brings to co-resonance is the Creator. If you understand that your light is a piece of the great light, then you have the beginning of the understanding of your Christed Self. If you understand that this light, in its blooming, in its flame, in its action, is the action of the Christ within man, you have a deeper understanding. If you begin to understand that the action of this Christ, once and for all, is to become realized as man in completeness, then you have the mystery of the Christ revealed to you. And the mystery of the Christ, and how it shall be revealed, will be the causation of the action of


p. 375-379 I realize that sometimes the book can seem repetitious, but there are a couple of things to keep in mind here, 1) it is not just the words or the writing that is doing the teaching, it is the higher vibration that is being held for us by the guides and 2)there are certainly going to be times when I need to hear a particular message more often than once. Sometimes simply explaining a concept in a bit of a different way can make all the difference. In terms of vibration, think of how different your learning would be if you were in an atmosphere that was calm and serene as compared to heavy construction work going on right outside the room. The information could be the same, and yet your ability to absorb it and to learn from it would be quite different because of the difference in atmosphere/vibration I think much of today's lesson is summarized in the following paragraph: “The love that you have in your heart today is nourishing you. Everyone has it.


P. 372-375 As I read over this section again, I discover the title of it could simply be “PRAYER.” At times when I am not in touch with my divine reality, prayer seems to be a rather wimpy ineffective way of dealing with life, but again I emphasize that is only when I am somewhat lost in my limited self. Prayer essentially is alignment with the Divine, and in alignment with the Divine—all power is yours. Alignment to the Divine Energies is also the alignment to love, unconditional love. “ God is love and he will devise and love abides in God and God in him.” It is that simple and that profound. What we miss sometime as unique expressions of the divine are adding to, expanding that Love that is. Although the thinking mind cannot comprehend this, there is an internal awareness that realizes this as truth. We can choose love even beyond of our feeling nature. (We can choose to love even if we do not feel like it.) This usually begins as we choose to be loved, we choose


This is just beautiful and says it all: “Why was I born? That is the next question. You were born to come into yourselves as knowing yourselves as loved, and as conscious active participants in your creation. You were born to stand in your knowing, to accept yourself as loved, and to see your fellows in their own perfection. You were born to create wonder, to live a life of splendor and of joy. You were created to come into your own knowing in the Son-ship of your own divinity and to claim it in full experience. You were born to say, “I am Word,” in whatever language you choose, in whatever vocabulary is truthful to you. You were chosen, you are choosing, all are. “I am Word through all that I see before me.” We are choosing you today to call to yourselves those things you need to move forward on this journey. Imagine yourself, right now, standing in a room. It is a gateway room. It is a room that leads you to a new room that has never been seen before, that has never bee
