Introductory Topics for Self-Study

There is no requirement to study the lectures in chronological order. Many concepts that might have been seen as revelatory (or even revolutionary) in the '50s and '60s are more easily understood and accepted today. Allow the divine spark within you to lead you to the topic you are ready for!

Film Suggestions

Explore your understanding of the concepts!

Some films seem to be universally accepted for their vision, integrity, and message. Groundhog Day (1993), Defending Your Life (1991) and the original Matrix (2000) each illustrate profound abstract truths while entertaining us.

For those who have seen 'The Karate Kid', the phrase 'wax on, wax off' instantly communicates profound truths about the wisdom of gaining skills incrementally, a form of 'one step at a time', before learning to integrate them into a whole new stage of self-development.

Often a particular concept is best illustrated through one or two scenes ­­ or even a well­ done trailer. When these are available on YouTube, I include that link. Consider how you might visualize spiritual principles!
