lesson 4: pointlessly preoccupied

Lesson 4: These thoughts do no mean anything

Lesson 4: These thoughts do not mean anything

LESSON 4
These thoughts do not mean anything. They are like the things I see on this porch.

1. “do not begin with the idea for the day, begin with noting the thoughts that are crossing the mind for about a minute. Then apply the idea to them.

4. “In using my thoughts for application of the idea for today, identify each thought by a central figure or event it contains; for example:

This thought about no money does not mean anything.

It is like the things I see on this porch.

5. I can also use the idea for a any other particular thought that I recognize as harmful. I must not examine my mind for more than a minute or so.  I am too inexperienced as yet to avoid a tendency to become pointlessly preoccupied.

6. Further, since these exercises are the first of their kind, I find the suspension of judgement in connection with thoughts particularly difficult.

Notes:

“Do not condemn, therefore, all that you would call ‘bad’ in the world.  Rather, ask yourself, what about this have I judged ‘bad’ and what, if anything you wish to do to change it.”  Conversations with God pg 32 N.D. Walsch

Journal entry:

As we give our trust to the experience, we ask for

now.

We look neither ahead nor backwards.

We look straight into the Present.

chapter 6 THE LESSONS OF LOVE

A. To Have, Give All to All

“Project the opposite of these mistakes: retaliation, abandonment, attack and rejection.

“An insane learner learns strange lessons.

“All good teachers realize that only fundamental change will last, but they do not begin at that level.

B. To Have Peace, Teach Peace to Learn It

2:2 Strengthening motivation for change is their first and foremost goal.  At this point the equality of having and being is not yet perceived.

Allow the Holy Spirit (aka: feelings) to decide

for God for you.

lesson 3: understand anything

lesson 3: understand anything

lesson 3: understand anything

To gain I must GIVE, not bargain. What
I BELIEVE I AM
determines my gifts.

lesson 3; I do not understand anything I see in this room.
“The point of these exercises is to help me clear my mind of all past associations, to see things
EXACTLY as they appear to me NOW

and to realize

HOW LITTLE I REALLY UNDERSTAND ABOUT THEM…”

Chapter 5; Healing and Wholeness

The Invitation of the Holy Spirit

“SPIRIT knows no difference between HAVING and BEING.

“To Spirit, getting is meaningless and GIVING IS ALL.

“If I share a physical possession, I do divide it’s ownership.  If I share an IDEA, however,

I do not lessen it.

“If I can accept the concept that the world is

ONE OF IDEAS,

the whole belief in the false association the ego makes between giving and losing is gone.

“THOUGHTS INCREASE BY BEING GIVEN AWAY.

the more who believe in them the stronger they become.

EVERYTHING IS AN IDEA.

(how then can “giving” and “losing” be associated?)

“The Holy Spirit is in MY RIGHT MIND.

“Knowledge is ready to flow everywhere, but it cannot oppose.

“God honored even the mis-creations of his children because HE MADE THEM.”  🙂

lesson 2: a responsive heart

Wake The Heart Up! Lesson 2

Wake The Heart Up! Lesson 2

I have given everything I see in this room (on this street, on this porch, on the farm, in this place) all the meaning it has for me.”

I am responsible for giving all the meaning to everything I see.
Take the subjects simply as I see them. Apply the exercises equally to a body or a button, a fly or a floor, a cat, a bird, a car.

The Kingdom increases through creative thought.  To create is

to love.
