Teachers of God;
We're on Lesson 47! We're almost through with the FIRST 50!! If you're following along you'll find yourself on this lesson: 

God is the strength in which I trust.

Now try to slip past all concerns related to your own sense of inadequacy. It is obvious that any situation that causes you concern is associated with feelings of inadequacy, for otherwise you would believe that you could deal with the situation successfully. It is not by trusting yourself that you will gain confidence. But the strength of God in you is successful in all things.​
​We are that strength! We have that internal source of success! !
We're going to talk about the calling of the inner teacher this week. A lot of us have resisted the call of the Holy Spirit. We have an inner pull, an inner life of longing and love. It's okay to take that secret advice. It leads the way out. It is the voice of Wholeness and Completeness and Passion. Have we learned to listen to it? Lesson 47 corresponds to today's lesson of strength in identity and listening to who we are. We're going to be looking at Chapter 5: Healing and Wholeness and Section 2: The Invitation of the Holy Spirit. This is the 'knocking at the door'​ we talk about in most faiths. Are we listening?

Explanation of Images: Our neurotic desire and anxiety are often drowning out our better judgement and our conscience. We may have listened to these shrill, frightened voices to the exclusion of any other voice. But the truth is that we’re connected to goodness so we can access it naturally. We dampen the bullhorn of our egos when we act on what is true and reliable. The inner voice has something to show us. It’s here to show us the way to happiness; not just any happiness, PERFECT HAPPINESS. If we want to stop the struggling, the bumping into walls, and living with neurotic un-fillable desires and crippling anxiety we’ll listen and do what the Voice that Likes Us says.  Especially when we’re not happy.
