At our last Pathwork evening, we discussed the Guide’s conception of ourselves as the interface between life and the void. On August 2, we will talk about Lecture 238, “The Pulse of Life on all Levels of Manifestation,” and Lecture 243, “The Great Existential Fear and Longing.”
The Guide says that life and consciousness is in a continual cycle of pulsation – expanding, static, contracting, and then expanding again. These rhythms govern everything we know – from our coming to life and dying, to the births and deaths of stars, to breathing itself.
From Lecture 238: “The perfection of the life manifestation depends on the strength and fullness of the pulse of divine life. If the pulse is strong and full, life will manfest this in various ways. Health, beauty, intelligence, goodness, talent – all these divine aspects are “pumped” into the life manifestation, just as the heart pumps the blood into the organism. Any imperfection – ill health, unattractiveness, lack of intelligence, negativities, problems, poverty, lack of talent, and so on – reveals that the main pulse of divine penetration is weak.”
The second Lecture, “The Great Existential Fear and Longing,” also shares the perspective of human life’s mission as “surging forward deeply into the world of matter, filling the void with divine life. In this process, particles of your consciousness have temporarily separated themselves and lost their knowing, eternal and inevitable connectedness with the All-Consciousness. You need to re-establish this connection by the process I now describe [the Pathwork] and put all of your heart, soul, mind, and will into this undertaking…”
We will meet to share our perceptions of these Lectures, and make deep connections with each other and where we have to go as we work to understand our tasks in this life. We meet at 7pm on Friday, August 2, at 107 East 38th Street, Apartment 4B in Manhattan.
Our page is to help people who are interested in the Pathwork Guide Lectures, and this path of self-knowledge and self-purification, to connect and share. The Pathwork is a melding of spirituality and psychology. It is non dogmatic, and we invite people to read the lectures and determine if they speak to you. People get together to study the lectures informally in small groups, and also work with Pathwork Helpers and with each other. People are invited to get together with other students of this path and work to find images, or wrong conclusions about life, when are often formed in early childhood and which exercise an undue influence over our lives as we grow older. The image of the stream on our Facebook page is an important metaphor for the Pathwork (the work on your path). That metaphor is that flowing life energy (the water) is obstructed by negativity, by blocks, by images, which hinder the free flowing of that creative and loving energy. The work we share is to remove the branches and boulders in the stream so that our lives can be filled with the flowing energy of love, creativity, and understanding.
Aimee Falchuk on her upcoming presentation this Friday on "The Spiritual Meaning of Political Systems"
Dependency and exaggerated independence
Identity and belonging
Materialism and Separateness
Self Rule and Personal responsibility
Fairness and equality
self expression and exceptionalism
Abuse of power
Fear, greed, envy
All of these concepts and characteristics exist in our political systems in truth and distortion be it socialism, capitalistic democracy or others.
And all of these exist in our internal realities. They live within us.
Exploring them within ourselves is a way of understanding them in our systems of government and may allow us to better understand where we can do better both personally and collectively.
Hope you will join us June 21st for a discussion of the spiritual meaning of political systems.
