Thoughts with Gayle: Lesson 13

Hi everyone, Interesting lesson, we are admonished to not give any thought to “A meaningless world engenders fear because I think I am in competition with God” other than at the conclusion of our three or four practice sessions. Why? Well, because we are being taught to release our need to understand, analyze, access, read […] Read More

Thoughts with Deb: Lesson 13

Lesson 13 In this lesson what captured my attention (this seeming millionth go around) was the “emotion aroused” and later we are told “recognition of meaninglessness arouses intense anxiety in all the separated ones,” i.e. us.

Alas, I […] Read More

No matter […] Read More

Clarifying Questions

We have had some questions about our audio and videos for the Lessons and a few other items. Let me explain what we have been doing for this year.
