Dear Harry, Thanks and greetings from Oklahoma. We'll be having class
in or near Oklahoma in the future. Probably in the Fort Smith AR.
area. In any event, that's what this group is about. Every time we
are on line, there's a new lesson to learn . Actually, the "homework"
assignment is being mentioned because I hope some of the readers on
line will try it. There may be no better way to stop your habitual
squandering of energy than by being aware of your negative
reactivity. Simply Witness, and then don't chastise yourself about
it...just go on Witnessing. For everyone reading this now, please
don'y hesitate to "teach". Any question you post or any answer you
give is food for peacefull thoughts and spiritual growth. I hope to
see you in class soon, either in-person, or in this cyber classroom.
> Sounds like a wonderful class for discussion Bob. but alas I live
in Oklahoma City!. Best wishes. Harry

Tonight, from 7 to 8:30pm EST, will be the 2nd from last class of
the semester. The next one will be Friday, the 24th. If you are going
to be in the Philly area, you are most welcome to attend as my guest.
Now that the 76ers and Flyers seasons are over, we will most
likely be sharing a greater amount of time actually meditating and
discussing concepts. For instance, tonight we will be reviewing
the results of the last class's very difficult "homework" assignment,
which was to not express negativity for 2 straight hours, or for
a whole day, or for the whole 2 weeks that have gone by. We will
also be reviewing who the Real Self is, how to control your emotions,
physical reactivity, and the mind, as well as experiencing the
meaning of life. But we do those kinds of things in every class,
so if you can't make it to tonight's class, try for the next one. Of
course, if the universe wants you to be there, it'll happen, and
if not, not. In any event, and every event, be happy, and as Saint
Monty said, and Saint Ozzy repeated recently, "Always look on the
bright side of life".
Peace and blessings,
