The Fellowship of Awakening May 11, 2016
Teachers of God;
No one can fail who seeks to reach the truth.
Failure is all about you while you seek for goals that cannot be achieved. You look for permanence in the impermanent, for love where there is none, for safety in the midst of danger; immortality within the darkness of the dream of death. Who could succeed where contradiction is the setting of his searching, and the place to which he comes to find stability?
We find ourselves at the second half of chapter 12. We're sitting at the master's feet, and taking some instructions. We're learning how how strong we are and we're practicing, stretching our muscles for the journey ahead. We're learning about ourselves and our friends. We're sweating and getting dirty. All this work today will pay off with quick reaction times in the future. We listen to our higher self and rely on our new found strength.

Explanation of Images: Our presence and place in this world and mind of god are very useful and important. We tend to fight against the world. Create suffering when we fight. We fight because we don’t know how strong we are. We can rely on strength we’ve never tapped before as we access our truest selves. We crave meaning and the experience of what is real. When we don’t listen to our inner guide we fall back into the habit of fighting and not relying on our strengths. We can grow up and change. We can work with others and help them as we’ve been helped. It looks easier to fall back asleep. We are kept awake by the love of other and stay awake by loving what is. We are whole and complete and strong. We’re building spiritual muscle for the journey ahead.
