PL 2 Decisions and Tests.
If man goes through life avoiding certain
decisions, it creates reactions and chain reactions, resulting in a new form, a mark, and in his next life it will be more
difficult yet to solve this knot and to learn making decisions. Contemplate these words! Even from your shortsighted human
viewpoint, not deciding is of greatest detriment, not only spiritually but also plain earthly speaking, yes, even from your
purely selfish viewpoint if you try not to be quite as shortsighted. This was the first presentation which was videotaped.
There are three segments available on YouTube, one on how Spiritual Law
impacts us, what we can be responsible for (Goldfish Bowl
), and ways we can give ourselves a break - Secret Holidays

PL 5 Freedom, Justice, Religion: Happiness as a Link in the Chain of Life Dualistic
thinking (see PL 143) affects how we think about these topics by creating the illusion of either'or: Happiness or Unhappiness,
Justice or Injustice, when the deeper truth is that these negative opposites are simply the manifestations of our fear and
unwillingness to open our hearts to ourselves and to others. Spiritual Principles (PL 171 and PC10) are used to illustrate

PL 31 Shame PL 66 Shame of the Higher Self. Shame is an intense emotion, easily activated by focusing upon
both our distortions and our best higher self intentions (which often burst forward before we are mature enough to understand
their essence). Shame can be used by others -- and by ourselves -- to prevent our development and leave
us emotionally and spiritually crippled. The presentation was videotaped and is available on YouTube.

PL 36 Prayer as Meditation Pathwork suggests more active types of meditation than
many spiritual practices. That is, one purpose of 'stilling the mind' is to allow background thoughts to come foreward into
full consciousness. Another is to allow 'minority voices' (aspects of our personality that represent different developmental
levels or resistance) to be fully heard, rather than being overwhelmed by the Ego (see PL 132). Also
references PL 194 Meditation - Its laws and Various Approaches.

PL 29 Finding Images The concept of Images is a key to understanding distorted perceptions. Masks
are the simplest form of an image. A phony smile, saying yes when we want to say no, dressing to impress -- we compromise
who we really are in order to be accepted, appreciated, loved. Images are generalizations, masks formed in childhood
to serve as warning signs, to keep us from feeling emotional pain.

PL 46: Authority An invitation to examine your relationship to authority. This
requires some spiritual maturity, such as developing the Observer Self and believing in one’s Higher Self. Otherwise,
you might only be able to see your reactions to authority, which can often be justified or rationalized. Ask yourself: am
I willing to honestly see the truth about my relationship to authority? If there is any hesitation in your response, do not
suppress it. Allow it as part of the truth about yourself. See if you can include these feelings, and allow any resistance
to contribute to your self-knowing.
