If I were to describe the one thing that takes up my time and energy when I could be putting it to much better use it’s when I am in “my little room” doing my little thing as if no one else is there. Just my little thing as if no one else matters.
The result of being “in my little room” is that I create a disturbance; I certainly disturb the person or persons involved with whatever it is that is being done; and my choice disturbs all of us because we’re One Spirit. It can be as simple as my choosing away from returning an email or phone call in clarity and in a timely manner or my sending written work to someone when I haven‘t taken the time to proofread it because I had something else I’d rather be doing. The “excuse” I give most often is that I was doing my “job”, my “job” in the little room sense of the word.
So, I’m sitting there late at night “cleaning it up.”
I know the little-room-ness of things from both sides of the fence – as disturber and disturbee. Here’s an example. In a recent Satsang My Teacher referred to someone focused on their “own little role”. That was me. Before the Talk began, I set up three devices to record the Talk; then after we had Meditated for two or three minutes, I asked My Teacher whether it was OK to start recording; then I repeated it again and I repeated it again even though My Teacher had said something but I didn’t hear it because I was focused on recording and when to begin doing that. Then My Teacher had to stop because of the interference I had caused.
At the beginning of the Talk, instead of being Present, I was focused on my own little “job”. By doing that, I chose into karma, which takes me out of the Forcefield – the Growth and Upliftment/the Grace brought Forward by My Teacher, Who now has to stop and work a lot harder to do That.
More important, my choice into karma broke the Forcefield. Through the Grace of My Teacher the Forcefield was reconstituted and the Satsang continued. If My Teacher had chosen otherwise, I would have been responsible for the Growth and Upliftment that the Souls present would otherwise have received from the Satsang.
I was in my little room – focused on, OK, now I turn on the recorder. I was focused on my “job”, as if the Service I am Honored to do, were a “job” in the world. I left out the “big picture”, Which is My Teacher/God/all Souls. As long as I pushed that button on the recorder, who cares, really, what was needed, etc. That’s the attitude with it.
Here’s What My Teacher said in this regard during the Satsang:
“Now, if you paid close attention … at the beginning - that to me was very indicative that so many of us are focused on our own little role, not aware of a bigger sense going on. Not aware of the Spirit That we are, not aware, as was said so beautifully earlier, that God lives in us as us. So God lives in me as me. That It’s God and we need to have that sense - not just the sense of your little, small job egotistically - but how it fits in in the bigger picture and that you are the bigger picture and we all do our part to bring forth the movement of Spirit and the Spiritual Progression and the Spiritual Energy Patterns That are here and That come to the planet. …”
My deeper understanding is that I need to just Be and to Trust and to be quiet and to Allow the next step – rather than running my ego in everyone’s face – “my little job”, “my little job”, “my little job.” I’m with The Teacher inwardly, by Being in the Soul Body with Him.
I also Know that we are One Spirit; and that my choice to break the Forcefield, Which is an Extension of the Lord, God Himself into this world, disturbs all Souls. As My Teacher has Taught, a butterfly flapping its wings in one place – or my choice into karma - can cause a hurricane someplace else.
Earlier today, I asked someone to please send an email to someone with information about attending an Event that was taking place later today. The email was sent – and I thanked this person for their Service - only it left out key information that the person needed in order to attend.
I Received this action energetically as a “little room” action, a “my job in the world” experience. As a karmic/disturbing action. It took my time and my energy. I also cared that this person did, in fact, attend this Event; and to me, This Attendance was the Priority: that this Soul attend the Meditation Of The Light Of The Most High that evening, that this Soul Receive That Blessing/Tap into the Light.
When I asked that clear instructions be sent, the person responded that this person “was at work” and would do so soon. I have since Learned that I needed to say that this needed to be done immediately.
I was “at work”, too, on that Satsang conference call, outside mySelf doing the “job”. Blind to the Sacredness of The Service, to the Priority, habitually going with the priority with a small “p”, with the one(s) the basic selves - the part of us that brings forward our karmic patterns - want us to follow.
One more example: I recently had a videoconference-call scheduled and the person was 30 minutes late. I waited. Same thing, basically – she was doing her “job” in the world, which, as it turned out, was “something came up with my kids that I had to take care of.” The focus was on “my little job” instead of on What My Teacher Teaches, Which is Individual Responsibility With And In A Group Focus.
Anytime I’m doing “my job” in the world and that’s my focus, I’m in karma and creating more and that disturbance is violence towards others. As My Teacher has Taught me many times, what I do affects others, The Teacher in particular.
The Solution is the Priority – the Job is Being Centered/Present; the Business I’m in is the Business of Loving God, as My Teacher Teaches. Being in Alignment with the Priority – Lining Up with That.
And doing Self-talk so that I am in Loving Cooperation inside mySelf.
Anything else is karma for which I’m Responsible.

Up until now, I have not gotten everything done that I needed and preferred to get done.
Up until now, I’ve allowed mySelf to do anything but by choosing to be “on the fence” by engaging with my basic selves – the part of me that brings forward my karmic patterns – instead of staying Present and doing Self-Talk to educate them to go down the track I prefer.
From this place of false identification everything is “confusing”, defined by My Teacher as the fusion of Spirit and matter. For instance, instead of consciously choosing to jot down what needs to be done in a schedule the night before, which I Know is key to keeping track of what needs to be done and directing my basic selves - the part of me that brings forward my karmic patterns - to go down this track, to go with my Knowing, as I’ve been Taught by Dr. Lane, My Spiritual Teacher, I’m allowing the “dumb part”, the habitual part, to rule.
I don’t want to do the work, including lining up with what needs to be done by doing the Self-Talk (see below) and by being Present. I want to be comfortable, which goes against The Teaching that we are not here to made comfortable, as the Christ, Jesus has said.
I’m in the “confusion”. I forget to schedule or I think about doing it. Of course, once jotted down, I need to allow the Flow to follow it day-to-day.
Then I had a special session with My Teacher that is called Lane Consulting. At its end, My Teacher supported me in putting up a big reminder sign that reads “Get Things Done”, which I did.
Then I listened to the Podcast for March 2022 Titled “Eternal Vigilance: Are You Practicing What You Know Or Are You ‘Knowing’ That It’s Practice?” (MP3 A109). It is comprised of a Talk given by My Teacher That is also available by going to cosmostree.org.
What stood out to me in listening to this Important Talk was My Responsibility as an Initiate to be clear; the numerous wonderful examples that My Teacher gave of using everything to Lift; for instance, being asked to pass the salt, feeling annoyance and simply releasing the negativity, choosing to come from a Loving Heart and passing it.
So simple. So easy. And so Profound!
So, today, a tax-related situation came up. So did fear. I did the Two-Part Release by Calling in the Light Of The Most High: “Lord, God, send me Your Light! Lord, God, for the Highest Good please take anything that separates me from the Spirit I am!" I told mySelf "it's OK to let it go!"
I also Called in the Light Of The Most High and asked the Lord, God for my preference: that all is fine and okay with my tax payments, etc.
I did Self-Talk to direct my basics into the action and to direct them to support me in being Neutral and coming from a Loving Heart. I did this by saying “basics, come present!” Then: “I need your cooperation and energy to support me in calling the tax department now. And to be Neutral and Coming from a Loving Heart while doing it.”
As an Initiate, I also Know that this situation is an Opportunity to strengthen mySelf as the Spirit I am. I Know that My Teacher/the Lord, God has used taxes, including calls to state and federal departments as needed, to help me Lift and Grow for around 20 years now.
So, up until now, when I call this particular state-wide department there is what I consider to be a long wait before someone comes on the line and I’ve allowed mySelf – much of the time – to run a “should”. “They ‘should’ pick up now!’ I Know from My Teacher not to “should” on mySelf. I stayed in a Loving Heart. Did the Two-Part Release as often as needed. And, then, naturally, easily, I just used the time on hold to get some more things done, including much-needed organizing. Easy. Simple. Done.
Then I Committed to just doing stuff. And using everything that comes to me to Lift and Grow. To come from a Loving Heart. To Grow in Love for the Lord, God – the Purpose of the life I’ve been Blessed with.
And to put whatever it is I’ve chosen to do in the Light Of The Most High for the Highest Good. And to Let go, Let God.
As for that “fence” - instead of “thinking” about what I’m going to do; for instance, about all that organizing I need to do among other things, this time I just made a choice and moved on it.
And I did the organizing fast. 1-2-3. Fast because I’m choosing now to listen to mySelf and I prefer to do things fast. Very fast and well.
And to jot down agreements I’ve made – what needs to get done – and do it.
It’s simply Choice and Being Present – that Choice of all Choices. For me, Talk Number A109 reinforces this Choice by helping me Remember the importance of Loving mySelf. Loving mySelf is being Present. So I do That.
I do what’s needed to “keep my Inner Environment Clean”, as My Teacher Teaches.
As my Teacher says, “it really is that simple!”
As I’m writing this Russia is launching an assault on Ukraine. Families are fleeing, separated from one another, people are being killed as neighborhoods and buildings are shelled. It’s not just the Ukrainian warriors who are under attack, but people living in cities and towns. My mind can’t wrap itself around this reality - in 2022 an actual invasion is happening with the attempt to dominate a neighboring country on European soil. This feels old and from the pages of history. I would think, as a community, as people, as the human race, we have grown beyond wanting to destroy or damage others in such a huge, cyclical event the reverberates the world over. That we could have learned.
However, as my Meditation Teacher has Taught me, there can be no learning and integration of that learning without our True Learning, Which is the Soul’s Learning. This is something needed individually and has results collectively. So, it’s not just learning from books’ pages or assimilation of the stories we hear that is needed to sustain qualities and, frankly, Living Realities, like Joy, Love, Peace and Kindness. It is the Spiritual Actions that must take place for the Soul within each of us to be Free from that cycle of action and reaction. For instance, making the simple, everyday, even mundane choices of life with a Loving Heart. Or employing the powerful tool of Forgiveness. Or choosing to attend a sacred Spiritual Event or Class at Cosmos Tree, my Teacher’s Meditation Studio in NYC. These choices into Love break the cycle. Break the wheel.
Action and reaction. War and return to war. Strike and counterstrike. Negativity and negativity. Fear and fear.
How do we escape this cycle of action and reaction? This cycle of negativity? We don’t continue along in the next pull of the wheel into the next situations of the world. We go “in” and “up” inside ourSelves, to the Soul within, and Identify there. This experience is available as a Living Reality for Students on the Path Of Soul Transcendence, those Students formally studying with My Mediation Teacher. When we are we are in the world but not of it, as my Meditation Teacher would say. That is where I am and why I see things as I do. Know things as I Know them. It’s not me, it’s in all of us. I’m just Attuned.
In this world, my role is that of a mother. Nurturing life and furthering growth is what I am devoted with each morning’s rise and each night’s fall. However, my knowledge of how precious life is isn’t the reason I feel the pain of Ukraine’s invasion and occupation. As a Student on the Path Of Soul Transcendence I Know, directly and through my experiences Meditating, that There is no “over there” or “them” or separation as it may appear with our physical senses. I Know that what I do affects someone else, another Soul. If I run negativity, anger, jealously, hurt, etc. then it affects others, even if I’m not intending that to be the case. For we are all One. Through my daily Meditation Practice, I have experienced repeatedly and become honed to the Knowing that are all made of the same Living “Material,” Which is Soul. I feel it energetically, not emotionally and certainly not mentally. It’s more of a simply Knowing. Like a relaxation into the Soul, I let go of all and I Know I will be caught. In that Surrender I have Learned the Reality that we are all made of the same Material, which is Love. We are all Souls in bodies and the Soul’s Constitution is Oneness.
Therefore, I experience in that place of Oneness, this mass event that furthers suffering for the Souls involved in mySelf. Any Choice away from Love is a Choice away from Soul. And if we all are One, my brother’s Choice affects me. No matter the perceived distance of continents, languages and cultures.
As my Beloved Meditation Teacher Teaches, if you really Knew, experientially, that we are One then how could you go against another? How could mass attacks happen when you know that brother is your brother, in fact, he is you? That child is your child? In fact, that child is all our child. I may not know you and I may not like you but I Love you and that is far more powerful than any illusion of differences. “Nation shall not lift up sword against other nation.” Isaiah 2:4 This isn’t just to live by a biblical code. It’s because we are all One. And it is a Living Reality ripe for your experience should you choose It.
As we’re all One, therefore, there is no occupation or take over. There is no dominance. The only Win is that of the Soul’s total Knowledge and Choice into Spirit rather than into karma.
There is no separation in Soul. There’s only the One. One Love. And that One is One with God. Not a God of religions, but God that is Love and is within you, living as you. I’m not asking you to think your way into understanding that we each impact one another, like an ecosystem. It’s far more intrinsic than that, far more holy, and far more comforting, like a balm.
That same God Alive inside of me - my Soul - is at One with That God inside of you. For where did God hide Himself? Where is the Great Power? Within. Meaning in you. In me.
It takes the privilege and beauty of commencing and Allowing the great unknowing to Know this. This Knowing is the Living, Vibrating Love that has been uncovered inside of me throught my Walking The Path of Soul Transcendence with My Beloved Teacher, Dr. Roger B. Lane. The great Learning is Unlearning! The Freedom from war and negativity is the Peace within. This is not metaphor. This is Reality and can be accessed by the Initiatory Process on The Path Of Soul Transcendence.
As my Beloved Teacher explained in His recent Satsang - which is Sanskrit for Spiritual Teaching - “How do we Celebrate our Oneness with God? … Separation only happens when we’ve created karma. When we’ve created away from God, away from Spirit, we’ve created separate from That and, because we’re Powerful Creators, we get That separate back to us. So it looks like we’re separate from God. …”
“How would it be if everyone knew… yes, you are that Powerful? …How many can actually conquer ‘death?’ Because it’s done the other way, it’s done inside out. It’s not done by conquering the world or dominating or anything else.”
“It’s done through the Process of Surrender, through the Initiatory Process. Just the opposite of the world works. … This is opposite: Surrender, Surrender, Surrender to the Spirit you are. …Through the Initiatory Process, then you get to enter into Eternal Life. You get to bypass the fiction of ‘death,’ that whole illusion. … Now is the time we really need to Honor That and that whole field of action has been cleared so that is can manifest. So how do we Celebrate being with Spirit? How do we Celebrate our Oneness? We simply live it.”
And that’s what you’re invited to do. Live the true Oneness. Celebrate It. Aloow It. Live It.

I am not a patient person. I want what I want and, once I can see it in my laser-sharp sight, then I am frothing at the bit for it to happen. And, in the meantime, I am, oftentimes, intolerant of all else. I will go to great distances to assuage the pain of not having what I want. Given this, you must be able to imagine the grand celebration I have when I finally secure my target. Or can you? What happens is I get so trapped in the wanting itself that when I receive the apple of my eye most often I’m so “sold” on the idea that it is already mine that I’m already on to the next one, as Jay-Z says. A capitalist spirit? You could say so, on a good day. A mover and a shaker? That would be an outsized compliment. A bottomless beast that constantly needs to be fed? Well, you said it; not I.
So if this pattern is not about the acquisition, not about the win, not about the gold dug in the gold digger’s path then what is it about? The answer might surprise you. It is about not Knowing that I’m Loved and okay just as I am. It’s about not being Present. It is about avoidance, in that moment, of God’s deep, beautiful Love. When I am impatient I place the things of the world as my priority and push the sweet Nectar of the Love away with my outstretched, begging and insisting hand. When what I really, deeply yearn for more than anything is the beauty of being Present. Allowing mySelf to Surrender into Joy, into Peace and into Knowing everything is groovy just as it is! With the new house. Without the new house. With the raise. Without the raise. With. Without. The solution is inside – within.
My Beloved Meditation Teacher describes in the book The Path Of Soul Transcendence: A Handbook For Initiates, “How does one stop ‘chasing the world?’ By clearing the karmas that we created… Each desire, each expectation creates a need fulfillment in these worlds. Because you are a creator you get all the lessons and time you need to learn how to create positively; that is, to learn to Surrender and let go unto the Lord. … Yet, there is another purpose to it, one that even goes beyond ‘purpose,’ beyond anything there is to accomplish: just being in the Presence of the Lord. …”
Dr. Lane illuminates this further in the “Tool For Living Free” entitled “Practicing Patience”: “Patience is being Present, giving yourSelf what you need and what you need is the Spirit that you are; in every case that’s how it is. And the impatience comes from what? Forgetting. It comes from forgetting a simple fact: that God lives in you as you. Try being impatient while you Remember consciously that you are Spirit. … Patience is a Gift, an Opportunity to be Present with God, with yourSelf, to nurture yourSelf, to Love yourSelf and It sure feels a lot better than being impatient. …”
Knowing this, what do I do when I’m obsessed with getting something, striving to be better, stronger, faster, smarter and stressing? How do I get off this cycle and get back to mySelf, to God, to the Present moment and to acceptance?
I simply do a Process to let go of all that stands in the way and Allow Spirit to take it and to have it be transmuted. Here is what My Teacher has Taught me: Call In The Light Of The Most High by saying, “Lord, God, send me Your Light!” Say, “Lord, God, please take these attachments from me!” Tell yourSelf to let them go! Now accept your Power to move beyond your circumstances and time and space by being Present with God! This is the Practice of Patience, Neutrality and Acceptance and being Centered in the Spirit you are.
I suggest you also make this yours. Fill your heart with the Love and watch how life unfolds for you by taking Initiation Into The Sound Current On The Path of Soul Transcendence. For more information, visit www.SpiritCentral.org

I’m a stay-at-home mom of four young ones (read – they are at home with me!) I volunteer in my community; currently, I’m organizing a Village-wide sidewalk chalk art contest for the summer. I do free-lance painting and graphic design work. And I devote a lot of time to Loving Service for Cosmos Tree and Center For Religion And Advanced Spiritual Studies as the Administrator for both Organizations.
A friend of mine recently asked me how I am able to do it all. Let’s face it – unless you are my eighty-year old widowed Grandma, who’s most pressing appointment on her calendar is her monthly luncheon with friends, we all have a lot going on. Working a career; finishing a Master’s Degree; taking care of babies; taking care of active grade-schoolers; finding time for relationships; cleaning; cooking; eating … how do ANY of us do it all?
Here are some tips, which I’ve learned from Walking The Path Of Soul Transcendence as an Initiate Of The Sound Current with My Teacher, Dr. Roger B. Lane.
One of the key Teachings that Dr. Lane brings forward is Neutrality. Dr. Lane says, “Live neutrally regardless of seemingly ‘positive’ or ‘negative’ situations outside of you! Ask to be lifted above your mind and your emotions so that you can ‘live’ the situation neutrally: ‘Giraffe Consciousness!’ You are totally responsible for your Upliftment. When you actively place your Consciousness at God, everything is handled.” (Checklist For Daily Living ©2010)
Dr. Lane often refers to “Nintendo”, which loosely translates from Japanese as “work your buns off and leave the rest to God!” when Teaching about Neutrality. It is active Neutrality – going about your day and doing what needs to be done while staying centered in the Spirit you are!
What does that mean for me in regards to “doing it all”? Well, it means with my ever-growing list of “Things To Do” I make a list; I prioritize the tasks on the list; I start working; and I check off the task when complete. As I work each item on my list I put the task into the Light Of The Most High like this, “Lord, God send me Your Light! I place this _______ (Service, work, chore) into Your Light for the Highest Good!” and I do my best to stay Neutral. When worry comes up about “how am I going to do this all?!?” I let it go like this, “Lord, God send me Your Light! For the Highest Good Lord, God, please take this worry from me!” And then I tell mySelf, “(name) it’s OK to let it go!”
Over the years I have paid attention to my time so I have a good sense of how much I need to complete a task. Sometimes I miss a deadline either because I’ve miscalculated my time or because something came up unexpectedly that changed the nature of the task. When either of these things happen I stay Neutral. And then I take the necessary steps to get on track; for example, I ask for an extension of a deadline; I reach out to someone who can assist me in completing the task, etc.
Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t like to fail. I prefer to stay on task and accomplish what I said I would. I enjoy being responsible for something and successfully handling it. Sometimes I fall short and that is hard for me. If I allow mySelf I can go to a pretty dark place when a load of laundry hasn’t been folded or I forget to send an email. But allowing mySelf to go there just wastes the time I could be using to fold the laundry! Instead, I do what My Teacher Encourages, I practice Forgiveness. Dr. Lane says, “Forgive yourSelf! You are forgiven by God before you even ask. You forgive yourSelf by Loving yourSelf and allowing your process and by being in acceptance of yourSelf. Tell yourSelf, ‘I forgive mySelf and release all judgments against mySelf.’ Tell yourSelf, ‘It’s okay to let them go.’...” (Checklist For Daily Living, ©2010)
So, I forgive mySelf for falling short. I stay Neutral. And I fold the laundry. Or I don’t. Because sometimes it’s really late at night and I’m tired and I know that if the laundry isn’t folded tonight that is OK. And I move into Acceptance.
Dr. Lane Teaches that Acceptance is the First Law of Spirit. In the “Checklist For Daily Living” Dr. Lane says,
“… Allow yourSelf to be in Acceptance of the Spiritual Correctness of ‘where you are!’ You are in Acceptance when you know that you are okay now, when you let go of judgments and you know where you are is the perfect place for you to be. Loving yourSelf is key. You Love yourSelf when you Allow your process and when you give yourSelf the time of day. This is done by taking a moment and telling yourSelf, ‘We’re okay. Everything is fine now. Thank you for cooperating in my being Present with the Lord, God.’ By being in Acceptance and Love of yourSelf and others you are Present. …”
When I move into Acceptance and am Present with the Lord, God I can clearly see the things that need to be done now and what can wait. In Acceptance I Know who I am and of what I am capable. And while what I am capable of usually doesn’t consist of little luxuries like taking a shower, it does consist of doing A LOT that is dear to my heart – and that is pretty neat!

Not long ago I was working with a young woman who was applying to dental school and, as we moved along in the process, I encouraged her to “be herself” when working on the required personal statement. She instead chose into doubt. Was she a good enough writer to do this at all? What if she didn’t get in anywhere? Were we doing the right thing with the personal statement? What if we weren’t?
The doubt was so “heavy” I could see a big dark doubt blob floating in the air around her chest. Inside mySelf, I said “Mrs. Doubt-fire!” and chuckled a bit because the term itself struck me as funny and also because the response itself is “textbook” as My Teacher says, referring to a particular karmic response and because, as I’ve also Learned from My Teacher, the so-called “karmic fields” can be “comic fields”, this reaction included. It is crucial to state here that the Focus of the Path Of Soul Transcendence That My Teacher Brings Forth is on Loving God. That’s It!
I’ve Learned from My Teacher the basic selves love to bring us “doubt” and why not? If we choose to falsely identify with it, then we’re separate from the Spirit we are, we’re in karma and we keep coming around and coming around lifetime after lifetime.
This person I am working with is not an Initiate; has not chosen yet to request the Sacred Gift of Initiation Into The Sound Current and is “driven” by her basic selves so why wouldn’t doubt “rule the roost”? As My Teacher has Taught in the Satsang “The Truth, Five Saboteurs, The Con Man And You: A Participatory Satsang”, doubt is the first of the five saboteurs.
BUT I write this because as an Initiate, I have been Taught to Focus into Spirit! To keep Returning and Returning and Returning to the Godpoint! Our Teacher Taught me the importance of This in Tools For Living Free #154, “Are You Fearing And Tearing Or Caring And Sharing?” “You don’t have to identify with the hurt, fear, pain.” I chose to focus into the Positive; and I chose to do so at choice point, after choice point, after choice point during the days and weeks we worked together.
As a result, that “doubt” remained outside of me; I didn’t take it inside of me as if it were real and feed it so that it crystallized. As I did this I was reminded of the definition of stress Given to me by My Teacher, which is that “stress” is negativity that is outside of us that we then choose to take inside.
This young person was “stressed”, as she told me on a regular basis. I did, of course, tell her to let it go on many occasions but the “doubt” grew the more it was “fed” and the more those around her took it in as well and fed it. I also encouraged her to attend Meditations Of The Light Of The Most High, a crucial Tool.
Once again, I chose away no matter what others, including her parents, did. It wasn’t real. I have also been Taught by My Teacher that “worry is the handmaiden of doubt” so I Knew right away when the doubt-fired that worry would be on its heels and sure enough it kicked in. “Do you think I’ll get in?” “[Name] says I’ll never get in!” “[Name] says with my test scores it’s going to be really hard!”
I chose away. As I’ve Learned from My Teacher, “choosing away” is always in Service to Spirit. As My Teacher further Instructs in #154: “Go to the Godpoint within you and, yeah, you can be dis-identified with the negativity and be identified with the Spirit you are. And that Frequency goes out there into the world and It influences those around you. And It has a Power all Its own.”
I also chose to use the Tools, especially the Checklist for Daily Living that was Lovingly created by My Teacher and the part in It that says that we “are doing a great job”. I stayed with that. I stayed with the Truth of Who I am. Which is Spirit and that I am Magnificent. Another crucial section in the Checklist.
I allowed This Tool inside of me so these Reinforcements just “came up” over and over again as I Aligned with Them, with the Truth.
I also did Self-Talk, reassuring by basic selves that “we’re fine and OK and safe” or that “we’re okay and everything is fine now”, another crucial Teaching on the Sacred Checklist. I did this as often as needed.
I also thanked my basics as needed for their cooperation and energy in supporting me in working with this young woman client.
Mainly, I Know the Truth, Which is that we’re One Spirit and that Spirit/God/The Inner Teacher or The Inner Master is the Only Reality.
I was also fine if there was something I needed to Learn. As the Teachings Teach us, It’s all about Learning after all.
As My Teacher has Taught in the Series of Spiritual Learning/Instruction titled, “Understanding The Spirit You Are” my job is to be Neutral and, if there is a new skill I need to learn, I simply do that. As the young woman’s family changed the opening of the personal statement from what I believed worked best because it was this young woman’s truth to something else, I was also fine – if I needed to learn something more about writing personal statements, I was fine with that, too.
And fine, too, if I needed to Learn more about the importance of Focusing into Spirit constantly and to receive reinforcements for That, something that “Understanding The Spirit You Are” provides me regularly.
I am fine no matter what is going on “out there”.

Giving is more than about a season or birthday. Giving is more than the dollar you give to someone or the hand you lend by holding a door or helping someone with their groceries. Volunteering your time and gifting your money is certainly a wonderful way to support others yet True Giving is more than even that. It is more than an action and certainly more than a transaction. True Giving is about the place inside of you in which you ‘reside’ when you move about in the world and give from that “place”.
When you come from Proper Identification knowing yourSelf as more than a body with emotions and thoughts - as a Soul - then you Give from that place you are truly Giving. That experience is one of Knowing that your Giving is not outside of yourSelf and “to” the other person but rather the gift is inside of you because Love and Giving are inherent in our being as Souls. My Meditation Teacher, Dr. Roger B. Lane, Teaches that movement in the world is inspired just by this and that there is no real mine, yours, give, get and there is no separation for we all are One. The True Reality of Souls is that we are all the same “material”. That’s what separates giving from the perspective of the finite and limited reality from Truly Giving from Abundance, overflow and being Present. It is the Consciousness, the Focus and the Knowing that we are Soul and we are the Love that we Give. For it all is Love.
As my Meditation Teacher, Dr. Roger B. Lane, explains in greater detail in a Satsang - Spiritual Teaching - entitled “Give – Then Give Some More” “What we’re giving is the Spirit we are. But guess what? That Spirit is in all things. Spirit’s in you. It’s in me. It’s in all Souls. And It’s the Spirit of the Lord, God. And give of That. …” Dr. Lane says later in the same Satsang, “And I love Spiritual Mathematics and I love Spiritual Economics because They’re based on something real simple. They’re based on the Truth and the Truth of Spirit and That is that if I give you something, guess what? Spirit comes and fills and more than fills that place that was occupied by what I’ve given you. I can’t lose. …” An example of this is my experience of Giving a gift to a friend’s child and noticing that the gift left me an experience of my wallet’s being no thinner and, in fact, the joy I felt in my heart was so noticeable that I felt my capacity for love grow, as though I was actually “allotted” more Love in my life by the simple act of this gift.
So when you Give you are Knowing your own Abundance, Which is placing your Consciousness with God and that you are supplied by the Spirit that you are. You know you are limitless and move from the common ways of the world like fear; lack; poverty; limitation and into the generosity of Spirit.
Dr. Lane also Teaches that when we Give nothing is diminished in Spirit so it is not even a case of filling that space. Dr. Lane’s most recent Satsang entitled “The Guru And The Beggar” describes this further, “Most of us, when we’re not Living Royally as The Spirit We are, we walk around separate from God, separate from Spirit and we buy into lack and limitation and effort, etc., etc.. So it seems so hard to get the dollar and even harder to get five dollars. … We have to beg for it. When the Truth is just as the Guru happily gave the beggar five dollars, God supplies and gives us whatever we need. That’s the Truth of Spirit. That’s the Truth of Spirit. … We need to give up and let go of being a beggar! Begging for Love; begging for attention; begging for affection; begging for anything. And know that we are Supplied and be at the God-point, Which is that we are Loved and cared about… And the simple Truth is that we are That Love and we are That Caring.”
So if we know that we are Soul; we are Spirit; we are Love; we are supplied; we are That Caring then we have nothing to get and everything to Give. And that’s the True Gift.

I wish to share with you one of the most important keys to freedom that I’ve discovered: Classes at The Center for Religion and Advanced Spiritual Studies. You will have fun and be transformed, your relationships and your life into what you’ve always wanted. I give mySelf Classes every time They are offered and through the powerful coursework offered at C.R.A.S.S. and by working directly and intimately with My Spiritual Master, Dr. Roger Bruce Lane, I am Uplifted and Grow in the Understanding of the Spirit I am. The Classes bring out from within the wisdom, intelligence, Love and Joy that is already within. This is a rare treat and Opportunity.
Through Classes that are both practical and experiential I’ve will Learned to choose the Soul within me as my Guide and strengthen my Attunement to that inherent powerhouse part of mySelf. As a byproduct of this Attunement, I am calmer, more joyful, confidant and have a wonderful time playing in life whereas I used to be stressed. I’ve watched as my life has transformed with the unharnessing of immense inner Love that the Classes bring forth. The more I Lift and Grow within this sacred framework the more wonderful my life becomes, both “inside and out”.
It all started by simply signing up for a Class and showing up on point – being fully Present - and a willing student, paid in full and on time. Love in your heart is a great jump-start, too. Then I found that the Upliftment and Grace inherent in the Forcefield of the Class simply catapults me from there. This is no normal trip. It truly is like nothing I’ve ever experienced as far as the “results” and inner growth. I know directly, through my own inner experiences, the progress I make in the Class. I also expand in knowing mySelf as Soul as something real and tangible within me. To further deepen and anchor that Knowing I strongly suggest requesting Intiation into The Sound Current on The Path Of Soul Transcendence from Dr. Lane. That is a beautiful and immensely Powerful Gift and has helped me to directly know mySelf as a Soul in a human body.
Classes have ranged from money and Abundance; relationships; communication; being in Integrity; and Living Royally as the Spirit you are and many more. Despite the tremendous rewards received in these Classes the meeting times and coursework are light, with most Classes meeting only once a week and for ten-week chapters.
Dr. Lane is also the Director and Founder of The Center for Religion and Advanced Spiritual Studies and Teaches all of the Classes from the Cosmos Tree Home Center in New York City and via teleconference for those outside the city and across the globe. Dr. Lane is focused on helping individuals walk a Spiritual Path and come to know themselves as the Spirit they are and to live from that Truth.
Working with Dr. Lane is a Joy. Delightful and humorous, Dr. Lane breaks down complicated Spiritual Realities and helps us to understand them by Lifting students to the place within themSelves where that Knowing resides. It is an incredible Blessing and treat to be Dr. Lane’s Student. I love My Teacher dearly and would not be who I am today without Dr. Lane’s Presence in my life.
Through Classes, Workshops, Meditation, published books, speaking tours and many more avenues, Dr. Lane has assisted thousands of people the world over to live their lives from a Spiritual Perspective; to learn to both live and give themSelves the lives they want; to focus each and every moment into the Divine within; and to have the daily discipline to do that. In essence, Dr. Lane teaches students to Love themSelves enough to give themselves the Best, Which is the Spirit they are!

I recently had an emergency in my apartment; and right after the situation was discovered by my housekeeper, I moved out and into a nearby hotel.
Instead of choosing into negativity, I Chose to be Present In The Moment. As an Initiate Of The Sound Current On The Path Of Soul Transcendence, I do This by Choosing to Focus Into the Spirit I am, Which I do by practicing the Meditation Technique Taught at the Time Of Initiation.
As an Initiate, I am “Present In The Moment” because through this Initiation - and only Through Initiation Into The Sound Current - I have direct access to Spirit. My Job is simple: Choose moment-to-moment to be There, “In The Moment.”
These words - “Present In The Moment” - are often used as buzzwords,. Oh, yeah! Present in the moment!
Before Initiation, I read about “being present”. I attended a few talks on the topic, too, and nothing worked. I kept wondering, “what is supposed to happen?” Am I supposed to “feel something”? Am I missing something that somehow everyone else seems to be able “to do”? At best, I figured it had to do with focusing fully on something, say writing a magazine article, instead of being “all over the place.”
Present in the Moment for me means Focusing Into Spirit. As an Initiate, I have direct access to the Spirit I am. By Placing my Focus There/at God, I am with Him/The Spirit while I’m in the body. As Dr. Lane, My Spiritual Teacher, Teaches, This is where the Spiritual Heavens are!
I did This during the “emergency.” As The Teachings Teach us, I used this situation to Lift and Grow; I Knew that this situation was a Gift from the Lord God/My BeLoved Teacher! I Knew the “emergency” was an outpicturing of what I was running inwardly: I was creating the very definition of “emergency” – a “dangerous situation requiring immediate action” - inside mySelf by choosing into negativity. This was an Opportunity to re-Focus moment-to-moment, to be Clear.
Did I choose into Spirit all the time during the emergency? No. I need to do better, to be more Vigilant, but I did So quite a bit. And the only way to describe the direct inner experience of This Focusing was I was in Peace! I was in Joy! I was “On Vacation”, the Best Vacation Ever, Which is Being with the Lord, God inside mySelf! Being Present In The Moment!
As an Initiate “In The Moment”, I was able to handle whatever needed to be done “emergency-wise” easily and Neutrally instead of jumping ahead and obsessing about something else I had to do.
Proper Perspective: As an Initiate I saw far more clearly. I saw that this “emergency” was brought forward by My Spiritual Teacher, Dr. Lane, for my Growth and Upliftment. I didn’t “think” it was some “terrible tragedy” and “why me?” Yes, that did come up; I just went back to Being “In The Moment”. Back to the Love.
I saw that there was (and still is) a “mitigation” going on. What is a “mitigation’? As a Student of Dr. Lane’s and an Initiate, I Know that karma, for which I am Responsible, is “mitigated” through the Grace of the Master/the Lord, God. As Dr. Lane has explained, instead of being burned in a fire, for instance, one may simply be touched by a match or the karma may be handled in a dream or it may simply be released. In the Moment, I just Know inwardly that this is a mitigation Given to me out of Grace, out of the Grace of the Master, Whom I love very much.
I Know that somehow, through Grace, through This Love, Which is the Vacation Itself, I visited my apartment when furniture was all over the place, as if a storm had blown through, and I was moved to tears. So much karma had been taken from me and all I had to do was go through this “emergency,” this Gift of an “emergency.” Much of the anxiety I used to feel is gone; ditto the “this is so hard”; and a lot of the anger. I used to put things off and today I saw the folly of my ways. No more, folks!
What a productive Vacation!
I Know now, too, that my Choice to Accept the Love of My Teacher and Receive This Love allowed me to be Peace-Full, to experience the Peace “that passeth all understanding” That is the Moment.
When I’m Present In The Moment/On Vacation, I always Know I am Supplied, that I am Blessed to be Given exactly what I need moment-to-moment. As long as I am In The Moment I Know that the Worth and the Wealth is the Spirit I am, Which is Who I am and Which is Inherent. As is the Joy I experience now In The Moment! As they say, “no worries!” I am Okay! Inherently! Permanently! As Souls, We all are! Is there any Greater Gift than a Way to come to Know YourSelf as Soul, as Spirit and a Way to live as the Soul you are? As My Teacher has Taught me, The Teachings are a Way To Be! A Way Of Being! Moment-to-Moment, as My Teacher has Taught me and many other Souls, I can simply “go inside” and ask mySelf “What Is The Teaching?” The Solution is There be It Acceptance; For-Giveness; Gratitude; Using One’s Everydayness to Lift; TAR (Trust; Allow; Receive); Bleame-less Responsibility and, most importantly, Being Present/Loving the Lord, God.
Coming to Know ourSelves as Spirit is our Purpose here, as Dr. Lane, My BeLoved Teacher, Teaches. I Knew This as I went through the “emergency” and I kept Returning to This Truth when negativity came up, which it surely did! And it was such a Joy to be moved along in my Spiritual Progression, to live that Purpose fully.
I encourage all of you to request Initiation Into The Sound Current so that you, too, Fulfill your Purpose here and Live In Peace/In Joy/On Permanent Vacation!
