The Fellowship of Awakening January 28, 2015
Teachers of God,
While the North East is under the latest Winter Storm, we are putting the cornerstones into place as we build the foundation of the Altar of our Heart. We just finished the halfway mark last Sunday. We've been dealing with our opinions and judgement, and now we're dealing with the effects to our sight and world and relationships. What do you want to see/experience? Have you make a decision to accept instruction? Who are you?
22. What I see is a form of vengeance.
23. I can escape the world I see by giving up attack thoughts.
24. I do not perceive my own best interests.
25. I do not know what anything is for.
26. My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.
27. Above all else I want to see.
28. Above all else I want to see things differently.
My body in this time and space experiences only the temporal. I see only the passing of time. I am angry that I cannot keep anything for myself and use my energies and talents to resist, and stop the flow of time and energy. And yet I cannot do this. I know it only causes suffering. I don't know how to make myself truly happy. I attack the world and what's in it because it doesn't conform to my changing opinions. Yet I'm moving and changing like all things are moving and changing. I see can see myself as a part of the flow and stop trying to resist the direction of my good. I want to see the path before me. I want to know what I am to do. I am willing to try something different. I will let go and let the world as it is lead me toward greater and greater truth. I want to end my suffering by seeing differently without judgement. My perfect happiness is before me.
We're graduating to Chapter 4! (week 5, right?) It's called The Illusions of the Ego. We'll be here next week too. We're on section 2: Right Teaching and Right Learning? Ever wonder why I greet you as a Teacher of God in these emails? Here's your first clue. This is sort of a chapter about how the group works, how our community works together at a very basic level. What's a teacher? Who's learning what? There are some good touchstones to see how our resistance manifests as secrets. Can you teach everything you know? Are there any lessons you learned that you would not teach? Are you hiding skills and knowledge from the world?
