PL 150 Self-Liking: Condition for Universal Bliss

   Man cannot be in the universal, general truth, the dynamic truth of life, unless he is in the truth of himself.  Not only in those truths he has already faced, but also with regard to those factors that are still difficult to look at.  As long as he refuses to face what seems most difficult, he is not in a truthful state.                                It is essential that man say to himself ‑‑ again and again and again ‑‑ "I want to look at everything, I want to see even that where I am most resistant."

PL 152 Connection Between Eg and Universal Power

          The meaningfulness and fulfillment of one's life depend, in the last analysis, entirely on the relationship between man's ego and the universal life principle ‑‑ the real self, as we also call it. If this relationship is balanced, everything falls into place.

PL 153 The Self-Regulating Nature of Involuntary Processes                

           "Man's battle is in the holding on to his ego faculties. This is because he desperately fears the involuntary processes. He fears everything about it, either consciously or unconsciously or both. Study guide explores 4 sub-topics of the lecture: Overexertion of ego creates unbalance, The role of Images in unhappiness, Involuntary Processes that you already trust, and Fear of success / Fear of the Abyss."

PL 155 Fear of Self; Giving and Receiving

           Anyone who constricts his natural soul movements does so because he is afraid of them, afraid of where they will lead him to and of what they may make him do.

           Anyone who is aware of this fear has made a substantial step toward his liberation, for without being aware of the fear of self, it cannot be overcome.

PL 157 Emotional Dependency Hinders Possibilities

          It is being said by all great spiritual teachings, by all truth teachings, that creation is infinite in its possibilities and that man's potential to realize these infinite possibilities of happiness exists in the depths of his being.                                                                                                                                      

          Before man can create new possibilities of unfoldment and entirely new ranges of experience in his personal life, it is necessary that he first learns to apply these laws of creation to his problem areas, to those aspects of his life where he is troubled, limited, handicapped ‐‐ where he feels trapped.

PL 158 The Ego's Cooperation with -- or Obstruction of -- the Real Self

          When man identifies himself exclusively with the ego, with the outer conscious self, when his sense of self is predominantly associated with the ego functions, he becomes completely imbalanced, and his life becomes emptied of substance and meaning.  Since the ego cannot replace --or in any way come near the resourcefulness of the real self -- the individual must feel inadequate, and his sense of life, of living, of self must become very flat and unenjoyable.

PL 159 Life Manifestation is Expression of Dualistic Illusion

         You see, my friends, the creative power at work within yourself is so immense, it is so constantly operative, that you have, so far, no notion of. It operates according to your consciousness. This includes, of course, the conscious and the unconscious mind -- your total being. ... When this is fully perceived, the law of life will be understood.

PL 160: Conciliation of Inner Split

         This is a powerful lecture about cultivating the  emotional maturity that needed in order to support accelerated spiritual development. Study materials include an example of a vicious circle that develops when we try too hard to resolve dualities. "A very deliberate and yet relaxed attempt must be made to feel the underlying causes of the outer results in your life."

PL 161 Unconscious Negativity, and how it Endangers Surrender of Ego to Involuntary Processes

          When man is primarily identified with and functioning out of the ego, he must be in imbalance.  He must be enmeshed in problems.  Therefore you have to look for new avenues and new approaches within yourselves to find it possible to let go in a healthy, harmonious way. This lecture can become a milestone; it can represent the culminating point you have needed, where a basic destructiveness will be abandoned through your squarely facing it.  Hence, the divine can be activated.  For you cannot abandon a negativity you ignore you have.  You cannot give up a destructiveness you deny exists in you.

PL 162 Three Levels of Reality for Inner Guidance                                                                

You are not only, by your presence, in the spirit of wanting to receive guidance and truth, but primarily by every single inner effort made toward the realization of your true being.  The more this realization is activated, the more blessings are generated from within. Elimination of error frees intuition and creative experience from within.  The lectures first give an impetus to this process and later fortify and confirm it when you read them again.

PL 165: Evolutionary Phases of Feelings and Emotions

          Through many life experiences, through millennia of living under varied circumstances, each entity learns to develop his faculties of reason (seeing cause and effect of his actions) and of will (self‑discipline not to give in to these primitive impulses). Yet in overdeveloping faculties of reason and will, a lopsidedness comes into being. 

          Whenever emotions appear, they may seem by far more negative than positive. When feelings are feared (and therefore denied) aliveness is by necessity also denied, whether or not the entity is aware of this connection.

PL 166: Perceiving, Reacting, Expressing

A threefold principle exists that applies to all elements of any kind of relationship and determines its nature.  It is perceiving, reacting, and expressing.  When this threefold principle operates in health, truth, harmony, and reality, then relationship must be fruitful and joyful.  When these three aspects of relationship operate in a distorted, unrealistic, disharmonious way, relationship cannot possibly be fruitful or joyful.

​PL 170: Fear of Bliss versus Longing for It -- The Energy Centers

          The entire universe is constituted in such a way that each created individual is capable of being in a constant state of bliss.  Each created individual is made in such a way that this is not only a theoretical possibility, but it is man's natural state of being.  It is the natural law.  When an individual is not in a state of bliss, it is an unnatural, disturbed condition. 

          The key to the universe is real love, not the binding love you often give forth. If you have the honesty of saying, "I cannot help but feel this way although I know I do not like it and I know it is destructive.," in that moment, you not only are truthful, but you make room for change.

PL 171 & PC10: Spiritual Law                 

          Spiritual Law, like forces of nature (such as gravity), is impersonal, constant, and perfect - concepts that we do not associate with human relationships and life circumstances. We experience authority and justice through the lens of Human Law, which is seldom free of agenda, ideology, and distortion. This can encourage attitudes of rebellion and resentment, along with a fear of being judged.

PL 174 Self-Esteem

               Put down in writing everything that you dislike about yourself. Have it down in black and white.  Then feel into yourself and ask: "Do I really believe that this is all there is to me?  Do I really believe that I must be these traits all my life?  Do I believe I have the possibility to love?  Do I hold forces locked up in me that contain all the good imaginable?"                                

              By raising these questions seriously, you will get an answer on a deeply feeling level, a level where the answer is more than a theoretical concept.  You will experience a new power in you that you do not need to fear, and a new gentleness and softness that does not need hostility or other defenses.  Then you will know how much there is in you to love and respect.

All of life is a progression to attain further unity

and eliminate more and more areas of disunity.

PL 181: The Meaning of the Human Struggle

           In the course of these lectures, I have occasionally mentioned aspects of the creative substance.  But whatever I can say can never describe the marvel and the truth of it.  All words must sound hollow in comparison with its actual, manifesting reality.  Creative substance is the most powerful energy.  It is the most fertile life stuff imaginable.  Its malleability, its responsiveness to creating mind, its pliability is as infinite as the universe itself.  Whatever consciousness can conceive of and express in thought, feeling, and will direction, creative life stuff molds, forms, builds.  To know and experience this is being connected with the processes of creation, which is an ongoing process available to all living creatures. 

          To know this means possessing the key to the human struggle. What consciousness determines, the life stuff "obeys" ‑‑ like clay in the hands of a sculptor.

         As far as it is possible to generalize, many of you are in a position to 1) acknowledge your destructive, negative, cruel, hostile, and selfish feelings and attitudes and 2) see the mechanisms of your defenses to some extent ‑‑ [even if not to the fullest extent]. Even this partial awareness makes so much difference!  It shifts your entire position toward yourself.  You no longer required to defend your defenses, to pretend to be so perfect that everything in you ought to be "right."

PL 197 Energy and Consciousness in Distortion: Evil      

          Energy can be an impersonal force that does not seem to be, or contain, or be an expression of, consciousness. The separated, dualistic human state creates the illusion that energy and consciousness are two different manifestations.  The same split in perception exists about life and self; God and man; cause and effect,  and many other concepts or phenomena of life.  Both are one.  Since thought is movement and energy, it is impossible to separate consciousness from energy in their essence, although in their manifestation there might be an apparent disconnection.

PL 198 Transitioning to Positive Intentionality

          A fundamental reason for the difficulty in changing negative to positive intentionality is that secretly the self identifies almost totally with the destructive part. Hence giving up this part of the personality appears hazardous, dangerous, and annihilating.

PL 199 The Meaning of the Ego and Its Transcendence

            Man's average state of mind is a fragmented piece of consciousness. In this fragmented state he is cut off from reality.  He inevitably lives in fear and limitation. He ardently protects this limited state of consciousness, while it is this very limitation that creates fear and suffering. 

             Every incarnation, on whatever level this may pertain, requires the entity to increase the scope of his "field of operation," to widen the fences around the fragmented ego, to bring in more reality from the world beyond the illusory confinement.
