Lesson #

Judgment and love are opposites. From one come all the sorrows of the world. But from the other comes the peace of God Himself.



Come wholly without condemnation, for otherwise you will believe that the door is barred and you cannot enter. The door is not barred, and it is impossible that you cannot enter the place where God would have you be. (T-11.IV.6:2-3)

The behavior-will conflict
As teachers we try hard to be good on the outside, but we are often concealing very contrary desires on the inside. What does the Course have to say about this?

A Better Way

October/November Issue of A Better Way #131 This month's article is one by Greg entitled "Every Problem Quietly Resolved: "The Liberating Problem-Solving Approach of 'The Quiet Answer' (T-27.IV). " Life is full of problems, isn't it? We have countless decisions to make every day, and we are often conflicted within ourselves and/or in conflict with others as we consider what to do. How can we possibly solve problems in a way that gets us out of conflict, that makes everyone genuinely and wholeheartedly happy? In this article, based on Text Chapter 27, section IV, "The Quiet Answer," Greg describes an approach to problem solving that undoes inner and outer conflict alike, an approach that we can apply to our daily lives right here and right now.

Alone Time 
I really like to spend time alone, especially in quiet meditation. Yet it seems to me that the Course frowns on this, since it emphasizes joining with others. How can I reconcile my desire for alone time with the Course's emphasis on joining?  Read more or post a reply»
