“You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might also pray in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance.”
Kahlil Gibran

Greek philosopher, Epicurus wrote, “Not what we have, but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.”

Here is an experiment for this week to expand your awareness of the good flowing through your life and hopefully to enjoy it more. Pay attention to unexpected abundance. For example, make note of anything and everything that anyone gives you: Someone pays for your lunch, write it down and assign a value. Someone gives you plums from their tree, write it down and assign a value. At the end of the week add up the assigned value of all your unexpected abundance and contribute 10% of your total unexpected abundance in the form of a cash gift to your spiritual community. If you decide to do this exercise with your family or with a friend it can be a tremendous amount of fun and it is inspiring to share your list with others. It may even help encourage their and your awareness of the kinds of unexpected abundance flowing all around us.

  1. "Mental Obstruction": defined as one's own confession; of the experience of the event, one wishes to resolve and dissolve !!)

    The above example of the Mental Obstruction: "your distress and in your need"

    When ANY "Mental Obstruction OCCURS" one must create a confession of the experience of the event as soon as possible . . .


    One is left with IT . . . the Mental Obstruction: "your distress and in your need"

    SO to resolve/dissolve the mental obstruction we must confess it !!


    :: SO that the LISTENER may recreate the mental obstruction to the satisfaction of the experience of the speaker . .

    :: THAT EVENT;

    :: THE EVENT OF Conscious Listening

    :: THAT EVENT will create a mental equivalent

    :: THAT EVENT EQUALING THE force of the mental obstruction

    :: AND THAT

    :: THAT (the COMBINED confession/listening)


    :: THAT WILL dissolve and disappear your use of mind &

    :: "WHAT EVER" = "your distress & your need"

    :: and YOU WILL BE FREE

    :: TO BE Present and Available

    :: to love and be loved

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
