Six years ago, I decided to give mySelf the one material thing I had Co-Created several times with the Lord, God in doing The Money Workbook by Our Spiritual Teacher, Dr. Lane: living in a luxury building. To me that meant a building with a concierge and an indoor swimming pool.
The Gift of the exact new home I had Co-Created was brought forward in the Spring of 2013.
I Knew right away that the chlorine in the pool was toxic; that being In Integrity meant that I needed to go with that Knowing, which I did by choosing away from using this pool. That Surrender wasn’t always easy; there was a part of me – the basic selves – that wanted me to just jump in there anyway. Who cares? Haven’t I jumped in a chlorinated pool countless times before this? And didn’t I just spend all this money to have a pool in my building? But I stayed with my Knowing. Not going in the toxic pool.
It was a Choice and one that I made consciously. And one that I had to revisit over and over and over again. For instance, I was invited by a close friend to swim with her at a nearby pool. I asked her if it was chlorinated and on hearing “yes” I passed on the invitation. When my friend said more than once that she “swims in this pool so what’s the problem?”, a part of me wanted to just jump in and go for a swim, too. I chose to stay with what I Knew.
I also didn’t read a whole lot of stuff about “chlorine”. I went with my Knowing. I now understand from My Teacher that I assumed that the above pool had the same levels of chlorine as the pool in my building. With this understanding my Knowing – Which has to do with me – is the same. Not to go in the toxic pool.
‘Lo and behold, six years later, shortly before I wrote this blog, I found out that the seven-months-long construction project that has been going on in the pool area of my building involves putting in a salt water pool, which is exactly what I need to swim more healthfully in my building’s pool! Hooray!
I Knew the moment that I found this out that had I chosen to “run my stuff”, had I chosen to jump into the toxic pool no matter my Knowing, most likely the salt water pool, this Gift from the Lord, God, would never have come to be as it did. I would have gotten my karmic creation, my creation away from Knowing/Integrity/My Truth. And who knows? I might even have gotten sick, which I’ve now learned can include having one’s skin peel off.
I waited. I Surrendered every time the “temptation” came up. I just went with that Knowing. No matter what anyone else said, which they did from time to time: “Oh, come on, there’s nothing wrong with chlorine. I’ve gone in pools with chlorine many times”.
I thank the Lord, God for this Gift. And mySelf for staying with my Knowing.
For further Study, please listen to the Satsang entitled, “‘Exactly’: What’s The Point?” Given by Our Teacher. In this Satsang, Dr. Lane talks about “being On Point.” “Be On Point in as mundane a thing as brushing your teeth. Why isn’t flossing or brushing your teeth Spiritual? [Being On Point is] staying in your Integrity, keeping your agreements with yourSelf regardless of what it is.”

As the coronavirus has spread around the world, I’ve made an important discovery. I’ve discovered that when I help others – not to “get” anything, etc. – by allowing mySelf to be Moved there as a Natural Process, I feel great; I feel healthy; sometimes I feel excited, too. I feel Loved and Cared for.
Early on in this “situation”, for example, I was moved to call my clients to see how they were doing. Not the usual focus on selling something or getting something done. I was in a reason-free zone: there was no “reason” for the calls; I have no “memory” of them; each just is. I can’t “go down a ‘memory track’”, as My Teacher has Taught, when I live as Spirit. There are no “past reference points”; and reasons are of the mind, which can’t “access” Spirit. As My Teacher Teaches, the mind loves to create “problems” that it can then go and solve. As Spirit, I’m in a problem-free zone.
Here’s more of what I’ve Learned by Allowing mySelf to be Moved into helping others:
1. A dear friend of mine often tells me what to do; and, up until now, I’ve allowed mySelf to be plenty annoyed by it. As My Teacher has explained to me, basic selves - the part of us that brings forward our karma - can’t stand to be told what to do. This Glorious Movement into helping others has meant that I do the same thing my dear friend does – all the time! I didn’t let the scowls of two people I know stop me from telling them to stand back from me social-distancing-wise. And guess what? The next day when I saw the same two people they were wearing masks and gloves and they kept their physical distance, which they had not before that.
2. To help others “nags” at me; it’s a “voice” I hear and that I’m listening to more often now. For instance, My Teacher is Giving His Students - Initiates Of The Sound Current On The Path Of Soul Transcendence - the Great Gift of Meditations Of The Light Of The Most High via teleconference while the New York Home Center is temporarily closed during this “situation”. Before getting everyone on the line today – I am Blessed to Host these Sacred Meditations - I heard inwardly to call two Initiates and share the Power of This Gift.
For a split-second before making those two calls, some fear came up. 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 take this fear from me!” I told mySelf, “it’s OK to let it go!” Then I called.
3. When I give to mySelf it’s easier for others to do the same. And the giving is giving to ourSelves. One of those I called got right on the line. I was Touched; nearly moved to tears; It’s all Love, I Knew.
4. It’s important to be Consciously Positive always. I make very quick inner shifts – super-fast – into the Positive, including when I’m talking. I’m very conscious of this. “The world doesn’t need any more negativity. That’s for sure!” My Teacher says.
5. As My Teacher has Taught many times, my job is to be Empathetic – not sympathetic. Earlier this month, my family had an unveiling for an aunt who died a year ago. Because of the current “situation”, the unveiling was held via Zoom, the video conferencing service. I noticed that when an adult family member who is visibly incapacitated physically came on the screen, participants covered up their own discomfort by speaking to him in baby talk as if he were two-years old. Empathy, according to The Teachings, as Dr. Lane has Taught me, is the Knowing that everyone is Spirit. God’s in everyone and that they’re given what they can handle and are perfectly capable of handling whatever comes their way; and it’s karmically correct. There is no victimhood. It is not a judgment, “oh my gosh, isn’t this awful”, which is sympathy.
I also Knew inwardly that the Lord, God/My Teacher had Blessed my family with His Grace. These many Souls - and this particular member and his brother, who hosted this event, in particular were Graced. I stayed in the Integrity of That Knowing and the Knowing that there was nothing for me to do but hold steady inside mySelf, which I did. Up until now, I might have projected my own anxiety “out there” by babbling: blah, blah, blah.
I sent these two family members in particular the Light Of The Most High; and, later on - as My Teacher Teaches - I held It for them “whether they know it or not.” Holding the Light means being Empathetic, Which is Knowing that everything is karmically correct and that Souls are only given what They can handle. Holding the Light feels like a solidification in my heart. This is Doing Something Important. It is helping others. And It is part of practicing Empathy, as I have Learned from My Teacher. Sending the Light Of The Most High is a Very Powerful Action/Gift to Souls.
I Knew in this “family situation” that I am Spirit and not the “role” I play in the world; that Spirit is My Identity; and that I belonged to the Family of Initiates. I stayed in that Knowing, too.
6. I am sharing the above as a “cure”. The Cure is the Sound Current, Which is, in Essence, Who I am. It is Allowing mySelf to be Moved as/by Spirit. As Dr. Lane states in the Title of One of Our Teacher’s Talks, “Give – Then Give Some More.” (MP3 A53) Giving, as I’ve Learned more deeply, is the Nature of Spirit. It’s a Natural Process. I Know that It has a lot to do with my Knowing I’m Safe and Protected, too. It – Giving as the Nature of Who I am - “obliterates” everything else/the negativity.
I highly recommend It as the way of being.

Because the New York Home Center is now closed because of the
coronavirus “situation”, the many Sacred Meditations Of The Light Of The Most
High That are normally offered in-person are now offered via teleconference,
thanks to the Generosity and the Love and the Devotion of Our Teacher, Dr. Lane.
As the host of these Meditations, I’ve been given much Learning and
Upliftment. One example has to do with occasional “interference” on the
conference call line during three Meditations.
The Teachings Teach us – including in the most recent May 2020 Satsang
Given by Our Teacher - that God is the situation. And that every situation –
“interference” on the line included – is brought forward for our Learning and our
Growth. These are Sacred Opportunities.
So I knew when I first heard “interference” during a Meditation that it was
an Opportunity to Lift, to Return and Return and Return to the Upper Part Of The Third Eye. I also Knew What to do from having read Tools For Living Free #1
titled “Using The Tool Of Choice” many times. The Tool – as excerpted from the
Talk Given by Our Teacher titled “Choosing Your Creations Wisely” - says:
“Let me give you an example! About twenty minutes ago, I was sitting in
Meditation. I happened to shift my body, and smacked right into this mic
(rophone). Now that hurt. And I think it’s pretty funny, but it also hurt. And I had a choice. I had a choice to sit with being annoyed, being in the anger and wondering, ‘how come I wasn’t more aware of my surroundings?’ ‘This setup is new but I should have been more aware of it’ and to go on and on or I could have chosen to go back into Meditation. And that’s what I chose. I chose to drop back in the Spirit that I am. … There was choice, there was an Opportunity to Lift, there was an Opportunity to Grow.”
I was aware of This Teaching and of the specific Instruction Given to keep
Returning. Yes, at times I went outside of mySelf, I heard the “interference” but I
kept Returning and I saw it as a Gift.
After the first such Meditation, as Our Teacher was saying good-bye to the
many Initiates Who gave This to themSelves, someone interrupted Our Teacher to complain about the “interference”, about the “noise”.
I experienced This as an interruption of the Lord, God Himself – Our
Teacher is the Lord, God in Manifestation – and that a Forcefield had been broken, that the Focus on Lifting was What was needed. I Knew that My Teacher’s Focus was with God and that the “good-byes” were God, were What had been brought forward in the Present.
This mis-focus was the “static”, really, the “interference”.
I Knew this. The proper way to have handled this was to email or call after
the Meditation was over.
This “noise” continued; static again and again; interference again and again.
For two more Meditations that followed.
I Knew something else important: that My Beloved Teacher weeks ago had
Lovingly reminded me to follow the Instructions that had gone out to Initiates at
the time of the Home Center’s closing over a month ago - to please download the
conference call app and to be sure to call in using Wi-Fi.
At the moment of that reminder, I Knew that The Teacher goes ahead of
me/us; that this was a Spiritual Instruction for my Protection and Growth and
Upliftment and Learning – to follow the Instruction – to just do it!
And I did and I did it well: I made an appointment with a Fellow Initiate and
did as many tech tests as were needed to understand how to call in using Wi-Fi. As
the host, that was key. And my Fellow Initiate was of Loving Service in that regard
As the “interference” continued, My Teacher very Kindly and Lovingly and
Generously repeated that we may wish to call in using Wi-Fi. I Knew that the Gift
of this Learning had a lot to do with my/our Learning to follow Instructions exactly
as Taught by Our Teacher, that what we bring to seemingly simple “outer
situations” is what we bring to our Walking of the Path. Nothing is a “small thing”.
So I observed as Initiates chose away from this Beautiful Gift of an
Instruction, and from the Gift of The Teacher Present at this Meditation to Give
this Instruction directly. “No, I’ll do it my way. I’ll dial in.”
I also Knew that, as some Initiates called me and suggested using another
conference call service, that Wi-Fi as expressed by Our Teacher in an Instruction
was the “next step”. I could feel the Forcefield – the Blessing – of it.
I Learned that The Teacher brings forward Protection from the interference –
The Teacher is the Protection from the interference - unless we choose away from
It. I also Learned that some of us heard no “noise” and others heard it. I Knew that
the “noise” that I heard during the first three Meditations was an out-picturing of
what, up until now, I have allowed inside mySelf – the thoughts, the feelings, the
“interference”. I also Knew that every choice we make affects All as we are One
By the fourth Meditation, Our Teacher’s Instruction was followed by every
Initiate on the call - Each called in using Wi-Fi. The interference stopped; the static
stopped. The interference and the static, I knew, were of our own choosing. We are
What a Gift to all of us!

Living in an Everyday World Where The Coronavirus Is Spreading –
A Spiritual Approach
Dr. Lane’s most recent Satsang – the March 2020 Talk (MP3 A271 on cosmostree.org) – was rare in that It was “A Rare Question-And-Answer Satsang” by Title. While the questions were excellent one about the coronavirus, now spreading around the world, stands out. In a nutshell, the questioner asked how much are we protected and how much is personal responsibility?
And while the question referred to Initiates Of The Sound Current, of Which I am One, my preference is to share my experience over the last couple of days based on this Talk as these Instructions I believe are relevant to all Souls.
Dr. Lane stated, “It’s Our Responsibility to do whatever we need to do … Take basic precautions in terms of how you wash your hands … or exposing yourSelf, that sort of stuff. …”
“And also, it’s very important since you do have access to the Light Of The Most High to put it into the Light and ask for a Clearing and Pray in a sincere way. … But also take Responsibility for this thing called mankind by putting it in the Light! … and asking that it be handled differently. Prayer is extremely, extremely strong. … Make sure you’re working it empathetically, which means … there’s God in this Being, this Being can handle it. …”
If you have not yet chosen to take Initiation Into The Sound Current, you can nevertheless work with the Light Of The Most High as follows: Call in the Light Of The Most High by saying “Lord, God, send me Your Light!” Say inside yourSelf: “For the Highest Good, Lord, God, [fill in your preference(s)].” It is extremely powerful.
“So if you practice those things on both a micro - and a macro - level that will be enormously helpful. … It’s never the thing itself, it’s always how we respond to it. …”
This is how I’ve responded to this situation since the Talk:
I’ve gone with my Knowing: For example, yesterday I was in a large grocery store and the shelves were nearly empty; so many people had come in and stocked up. There was a part of me that wanted to “go out there” and get all worked up about the situation, etc. Instead I just stayed with My Knowing that there was plenty of food; that I’m Supplied; and I chose to simply look at the food that was indeed available and perhaps try some new things!
And that’s what happened. I noticed that the few items left often happened to be among the most expensive so I just went for it; and I just asked the Lord, God for the Highest Good to replace now whatever money I did spend.
As I was purchasing some lovely looking salmon the man behind the counter started to tell me in an “urgent” manner how I needed to go the store before it opened at 7 am because by 7 the lines would be around the block! I just stayed with purchasing this lovely salmon dressed with ginger and orange. There was food then; there will be food the next time.
The man next to me said he didn’t know how to handle the shopping – go with food he didn’t want or take a chance on showing up and maybe there would be and maybe not. I said quietly that I had chosen to shop. With that he pointed out that the hake – the other fish left – was delicious made with his favorite recipe, which he shared. I purchased the hake.
It actually felt rather Luxurious, like a real treat to mySelf to buy “real food” instead of the usual “stuff” I pick up “on the fly” most days. I felt deepening Gratitude to the Lord, God for this Abundant Supply; for the Opportunity; and for the fact that, even though I was in a grocery store that had been “packed” with people all day (more than one employee told me that), when I was there, other than a handful of others, I had the place to mySelf. Since “tying up my camel” has meant maintaining “social distancing” - something much harder if not “impossible” in a store that is “packed” – I Knew this “extra space” around me was a Blessing. I also Knew from Dr. Lane that what has erroneously been called “social distancing” is actually “physical distancing”.
Many times in the last day or two, I put the situation with the coronavirus into the Light Of The Most High for the Highest Good. I’ve called in the Light Of The Most High like this: “Lord, God send me Your Light!” And I’ve sent the Light ahead of me to Transmute, Lift and Clear any karma, including - if appropriate - the coronavirus from me and from all Souls for the Highest Good. I’ve sent Healings and Blessings to all those involved with the virus situation in any way. I’ve asked the Lord, God to send me the Healing Light Of The Most High and to please take anything that is not of health. I also put my preference into the Light Of the Most High for the Highest Good that a cure is found now and that everyone around the world work together easily and effortlessly now to help all Souls affected.
Staying in Integrity was important to me, too. For instance, when I was leaving to canvass the neighborhood near the Home Center, I stayed in my Integrity, which was to avoid stopping at the local copy shop to have them copy the flyers I put out because, as a precaution, I didn’t want anyone there to handle them. Yes, stuff came up – did I have time right then to do it another way?? If I print them at home before I leave will they look OK on the white paper I have instead of the usual gorgeous gold? Oh! will doing this run my printer cartridge out so I have to buy a new one right away? That “stuff” didn’t even last a second because I just stayed firmly in Integrity and printed the flyers from home. ‘Lo and behold they were absolutely gorgeous! I had no idea my old printer would automatically print them in color, in a brilliant shade of gold that surpassed the usual ones color-wise!
In the Talk, Dr. Lane spoke to us about our basic selves, the part of us that brings forward our karmic patterns. Basics “go out there”; they love to belong and boy! do they love to “pile on” re: getting all upset, etc. That “stuff” is “basic self stuff!”, as Dr. Lane has often said.
Dr. Lane shared this: “You can see this contagion of … tremendous fear, which is basic self stuff. So you want to, inwardly, be aware of that so that you’re not getting caught on that. It’s easy to feel that magnetic quality and you just go with it.”
I did update my basics as to what was going on in general and asked them to support me in being Present so we’re calm and in Peace and Joy.
As I write this, I am also doing the Two-Part Release Technique – calling in the Light Of The Most High and asking the Lord, God to take any fear from me! I tell mySelf, “(my name) it’s OK to let it go!”
As an Initiate Of The Sound Current have direct access to the Lord, God and the Knowing is direct Knowing. If you have not yet requested the Gift of Initiation Into The Sound Current, you can still ask the Lord, God to take anything that separates you from the Spirit you are!” And tell yourSelf, “(your name) it’s OK to let it go!”
I do encourage you to request Initiation Into The Sound Current because That’s the Way to come to Know ourSelves as Spirit, as Soul and That’s Our Purpose here. This virus is just another Gift for us to use to Lift. As Initiates we Know That. And if we’re smart, we use it!
We also Know, as Dr. Lane explained, that Souls who are infected are simply going through their karma as all of us are and it is here for our Learning. And, yes, as My Teacher said, they can handle it as I can handle mine. My Teacher has so brilliantly explained regarding this virus that one of the “reasons” it is here is for us to Learn to work together, to co-operate.
Today, I picked up the phone to see how someone was doing who had been planning to travel abroad amid what has been a ban on travel from some overseas spots back to the U.S. Up until now, I would likely have “thought” about it but not really “taken the time” to call nor been sincerely caring, which I was.
I was really struck by how much the man in the food store cared about my understanding how to make the hake; and that it was a healthful fish because is wild caught. I don’t cook and he made sure I did understand by repeating it four or five times. It all felt like it was part of what is coming forward with this Opportunity.
And boy! is Caring and direct Knowing easy as is working with the Light Of The Most High! And yes, all of The Teachings as brought forward by Dr. Lane are crucial protections for me. I am being Responsible – responding to the Spirit I am - as Dr. Lane has beautifully explained.

Can’t get over the hump, cross that first bridge you are staring down, let go of the end of the rope you’ve tethered yourself to for staying in the shallows? Many of us wonder when our dull lives become the lives we envisioned ourselves leading. We make resolutions - empty promises - gripe about the blockades in our way and feel somehow disempowered and disenfranchised from the life, the excitement, the fulfillment and the peace that we really want. How do we move from stuck to living a vibrant life that beats true to the drum of our innermost heart?
Advertising companies will have us think that their specific brand of paper towels will add shimmer and shine to not just the countertops but to our hearts; the latest electric car will make us eternally happy or that perfect hotel nestled in the tropics will satiate our heart’s desire for a lifetime. We know that these outer items won’t. Yet they are still attractive and the dream of fulfilling ourselves with such a simple act such as purchasing the right perfume lingers. We taste test and try on the many avenues of the pursuit of pleasure and yet we return to square one inside ourselves, still thirsty and looking for more. So we know that isn’t it. And that it isn’t lasting either. Yet, what else is there?
Well, I know for certain that the map to the life that we truly want is inside of us. As is the journey to what we truly want. And the very basis of the life that we truly want lies inside of us as well. Meaning, it is all within me? Is this some abstract fairy tale that requires me to go to multiple yoga classes; lighting Nag Champa incense in my living room; and getting a hunger high off of kale quinoa salads? Nope! Well, then it must be code for adjusting the “life that I really want” from one filled with adventures like sky diving and seeing the brave, beautiful world to being happy for a grey winter stroll in the local city park, reading grocery store paperback books and learning to appreciate the smell of my own farts. Nope again!
I’m going to give it to your straight. There is a Way – a real Way – to have exactly the life that you want for the Highest Good. And this way doesn’t require just blind, hopeless, hot pursuit after the things on your bucket list and facing the myriad of walls you discover along the way and then learning kung fu to knock them down. It is far superior to that! This Way involves going within yourSelf and knowing directly the Soul that is you.
As you know yourSelf as Soul, as Spirit, you, will, as a byproduct, shed the layers of karma and attachment and negativity. You will become free and clear and bright. You will feel amazingly joyful and, when you place your Focus on the Soul, you receive, as a byproduct, even more of the things of the world. They will just be attracted to you. As you Allow the Power of Who you really are to come forth within, the outer world rises up to meet you, as though it has been waiting for you to arrive all this time. And here’s the fascinating, freeing crux: you won’t have to do one single thing about the roadblocks that have stood in the way of your attainting the holy grail. You will one day just notice that you’ve been moved to where you want to be. By Focusing on the Soul that you are, all else is gently, gracefully removed from you and you move easily in any “direction” because you discover that you are no longer bound and gagged by the inhibiting errors in your own consciousness that kept you in the illusion that you are powerless. Read that twice!
Incredibly profound stuff and I don’t say this willy-nilly. Nor is it done just any old way. There is a specific Path and Way to do this and I have Learned everything from my Beloved Mediation Teacher, Dr. Roger B. Lane. The only way to have the inner experience of sustained, deep Joy that we are all looking for is through Initiation into the Sound Current. Dr. Lane brings forth a Special Dispensation of This called The Path of Soul Transcendence. To become a Student of Dr. Lane’s request and receive Initiation into The Sound Current and follow the Path exactly as laid out by following Its Guidelines. Also, taking Classes, reading Tools, using every experience in your life to be Neutral, kind, Joyful, in Gratitude and Loving are all part of Walking This Path.
Begin by attending Meditations at the Home Center of the Center for Religion and Advanced Spiritual Studies in New York City or at the Regional Centers around the country and Mexico! Attend in person or via teleconference a Satsang – Spiritual Teaching – given by Dr. Lane. There are a number of Teachings with Which to be involved that Dr. Lane brings forth and they all are Gifts we give to ourSelves.
Dr. Lane also Teaches us how to Co-Create with the Lord, God, Which is essentially inviting God to give you exactly what you want in your life for the Highest Good and I can tell you, from direct experiences, it really works! Because the Truth is, yes these physical things of the world are lovely, they are ours to have in spades and enjoy fully. The irony of the extraordinary ride that Dr. Lane leads His Students on is that the more we commit and devote ourSelves to the things of the Spirit and utilize the Tools that Dr. Lane offers us the more we can have the things in the world that we prefer to have in our lives. From the mundane to the extraordinary, everything on the planet is here for us to have and enjoy.
We place our Focus with the Soul within by employing the Tools Dr. Lane offers and, as we grow in Joy and Love through these choices we also receive more and more of the things of the world. We do not do it for that reason because the process of Focusing on the Soul is one of detachment, letting go and neutrality; yet, the Joy of This Path is that in that Freedom we can enjoy the things of the world even more. As Christ, Jesus said, “Seek ye first the kingdom of Heaven and all else shall be added unto you!”
All these successive choices are ours to make and, surprisingly, Co-Creating what we want has less to do with a massive, effort-laden, stir-up of all aspects of our day-to-day life and everything to do with simply dropping down inside ourSelves and letting the rhythm of Who we truly are – the Soul - take sovereignty and crack the mirror of illusion. In this elegant Focusing on the Soul we are we Allow the Spiritual Master to ever-so-gently take the reins of our speeding chariot and lead us on the direct Path of the Spiritual Heart.
The Route is inherent in us and by Initiation into the Sound Current we open our inherent Gifts. Dr. Lane Teaches that Walking The Path of Soul Transcendence is gentle and effortless. Floating downstream in the course of our life filled with Grace, the tangible experience of God’s Love is our natural state and everything we could ever dream of is placed at our feet.

Forgiveness is a Powerful and Grace-filled key. It is always on my keychain and fits perfectly into every lock that karma presents, Allowing the unraveling of all forms of negativity without a trace. Forgiveness, I’ve heard my Beloved Teacher say, allows karma to be cleared. This simple Process is one of the superheros of the Tools that my Teacher brings forth. Forgiveness stands at attention, cape waving in the wind, a golden “F” beaming on its chest and is ever-ready to be plugged in, employed and allowed into our lives as the great vaccum cleaner It is. Employing Forgiveness allows the fat of reincarnational patterns to be burned off and allows That Which we truly are, Which is Love, to live as us. Forgiveness polishes the Love and allows us to be Attuned to this quality of the Soul within.
Forgiveness allows karma to be cleared. Poof! Gone. One simple step leaves us with no record, no trace and no further experience of the negativity we surrender unless we volitionally choose back into it. Karma, as we know, is anything that separates us from the Spirit that we are. That means it is anything other than Love. Anything that separates me from the True me. You from the True you. I Forgive because every thought, feeling, deed, action other than on the Lord, God is karma. I Fogive because it feels better. I Forgive to return mySelf to my Power. I Forgive because I Love mySelf.
Forgiveness is Love’s Expression and when we go off road with This It returns us to Love. This Tool of Forgiveness always stands out to me. A vacuum cleaner of karma. That’s amazing! It is a restart button. And such a simple Process. Pivotal in It are having a Loving heart and letting go of the karma during the second part of the Process. Here is how it is done: Call in The Light Of The Most High by saying, “Lord, God send me Your Light!” Then say, “I forgive mySelf for the judgments I’ve placed against ______.” Insert the name of someone, the name of a situation.” The second part is you tell youSelf, “It’s okay to let it go.” As we are all One, repeat this Process, inserting your name and telling yourSelf, “It’s okay to let it go!” Then let it go: truly surrender it! That’s it! Do this as often as needed!
When we choose Forgiveness we are choosing ourSelves. We are Choosing the Love that we are and we are Choosing to Live as The Teacher does – ever Present and ever-Attuning. Forgiveness is Loving. It is allowing the judgments that crystalize a situation to be Lifted. Forgiveness is Kindness to Our Teacher’s Consciousness. Forgiveness is also a compassionate and loving act to one’s Self. It restores Oneness. It is gentle and whole. The Choice of Forgiveness is Surrender Itself.
For instance, when I Forgive my ex-husband for the barbed wire email that he sent me, I am choosing to let go. Also, when I forgive mySelf for judging his email as being laced in “barbed wire” I am surrendering my attachment to him. The irony is that when I judge, I bind myself to the situation or person. I Choose Freedom. I Allow mySelf to be Free from the pattern and to that which keeps me from Lifting – anything that keeps me from being Free. Freedom is my natural state. Everything is balanced by Forgiveness - the letting go - and I am reborn each moment. Forgiveness frees me of past reference points, experiences and negativity. Being reborn simply means that I’m not bound to things outside of me. For instance, regarding my ex-husband, because I Forgive, Accept and Love mySelf I am able to make a myriad of choices. Creative ideas and solutions come in and something that may have been an extremely challenging situation in the past becomes a place where I am playful and free and can quite easily laugh.
It is like a lubricant to pistons and things just flow. Forgiveness creates a fresh start and as, Founder and Director, Dr. Roger B. Lane, says Forgiveness gives us, “The freedom to move beyond the bounds of negativity, of the hurt, of the fear.”
I have been marvelously surprised. I’ve discovered that I have a wonderful relationship with my ex now. I am appreciative that he is a stellar father to our son and a solid, forthright man for the day-to-day, week-to-week business we run of raising a beautiful, Light-Being of a child in our two separate, happy homes. I used to be so entrapped with the hurt that I couldn’t see the trees through the forest, let alone enjoy the steps down the lovely and gracious Path through the trees. Forgiveness has given me that. Forgivness has allowed me to be in deep and genuine gratitude for something that used to be a point of pain. This extrapolates out into every area. That’s because every area and every situation is an outpicturing of my Inner Life.
Forgiveness has offered me a deep, flowing and rich, active dance of self-Love that lives as me each and every moment. This is the righteous and bodacious gift I give mySelf When I do self-Forgiveness I receive Freedom and Love. I, in fact, hear my Tones Chanting for me when I empty mySelf to Forgiveness. It is a Forcefield of the Lord, God in the world and when I “catch” It, I am taking a magical mystery tour. Forgiveness if a choice point and a springboard. It is Self Love embodied in a Tool.
Funnily enough, with all these miraculous benefits, Forgiveness is incredibly easy to do. And it is available to every one. Clearing the soot that surrounds the Soul and Allowing the Love that always is to be polished and uncovered. Forgiveness is indeed a Process of being born anew.
My Beloved Teacher is a model for this. He knows me, Forgives me, Loves me unconditionally. He Knows I am inherently Worthy. And I, as His student, am Learning and living all of This now. My Teacher is a model to me, not only of how to Live the Teachings, but showing me how to take care of mySelf and Love mySelf. And how to gently, sweetly Forgive mySelf into being each moment anew.

For the last two holiday seasons I read excerpts from a Talk given by Dr. Lane, Founder and Director of the Center For Religion And Advanced Spiritual Studies (CRASS). The Talk is apropos of the holiday season but It is apropos of each and every moment of our lives.
The Talk is on Giving and It is titled “Give – Then Give Some More.”
What “hit me over the head” like a big red STOP sign as I re-read this Talk is that Giving takes practice. It’s not “Oh, yeah, I’m just gonna give” and I go “out there” and do a whole bunch of “outer things” – to get credit, to fill some obligation, to ensure that I don’t “make waves” by not giving something to someone. Giving has absolutely nothing to do with all the things we “think” it has to do with. Nothing at all.
Giving is the quiet Inner Practice of Giving to ourSelves and then Giving to ourSelves some more and some more.
That quiet, easy, gentle Giving to ourSelves is the Focus into Spirit; the Focus into Spirit; the Focus into Spirit by placing your Focus at the Upper Part Of The Third Eye. It is a practice, a moment-to-moment practice.
That Giving to mySelf; Giving to mySelf; Giving to mySelf is one and the same as being Present or Present with Spirit/the Spirit we are – and yes, folks, that is the Present, the Gift we Give ourSelves each moment. And when I give mySelf that Gift, I give to everyone around me.
But that giving to mySelf of the Gift – the direct Focus into Spirit - is only possible if you choose to request – and Receive - Initiation into the Sound Current on the Path Of Soul Transcendence. This is done by either calling 212 828-0464, emailing email@example.com or click here for more information. For all the “talk” “out there” about being “Present” or “in the moment”, unless you take Initiation, you are not fully Present. The difference is that between living in the “fullness” of the lower self or the “negative worlds” and living as Soul as One with Spirit I am, as the Powerful Creator I am, in the Joy of my/one’s True Self.
Let me give you an example. A few minutes ago someone sent me an email asking me to print out a flyer. I was in the middle of doing something else; I didn’t want to be interrupted by this person, never mind to do something that I felt this person could have easily done herself. For an instant, I allowed the thought “why is this person delegating to me?” And I was on my way to becoming a “crab in a barrel”. I was starting to identify with the false self or lower self, the part of me that just wants to “take! take! take! take!” as Dr. Lane says in this Talk.
But voila! I happened to be reading the Talk – and giving mySelf other Tools from CRASS, all of Which reinforce the importance of Focusing into Spirit - and I knew instantly what Giving was! So I gave to mySelf immediately by Focusing into Spirit, Focusing into Spirit, Focusing into Spirit.
And a few things happened. I felt excited. I felt filled with Joy. And I had the direct experience inside mySelf of giving to mySelf. I saw that the choice to print the flyer had nothing to with anything “out there”. There was “no-thing” out there to give to; no person “out there” to do something for. It was exactly the opposite. I just saw that printing out this flyer was a way for me to give to mySelf. It was for me.
I also saw that this person had given me a gift. A gift to use this request as an Opportunity to be Truly Present, which is the Focus into Spirit. And the Opportunity to accept that This is Who I am. I am Spirit. And to know, as the holidays approach, that being Present is the Present. There is none greater. And, as an Initiate Of The Sound Current on the Path Of Soul Transcendence, I am in the driver’s seat in a Glorious Partnership with Spirit/with the Lord, God. This Self-Gift is my wish for all who read this.
I also got to see how “dangerous” it can be to focus instead on the lower self, to let this part of us called the basic selves rule the roost, as Dr. Lane Teaches. I could have come up against this person inside of mySelf. Doing so creates karma for which I am responsible. In addition, the Spirit in me is the same Spirit as in all of us so by going against this person I go against all of us, as Dr. Lane also Teaches. Don’t kid yourSelves – this false identification is the violence that we see projected “out there” all the time!
And I am responsible to do the Two-Part Release Technique, as Dr. Lane also Teaches, when some anger came up around the request by saying “Lord, God send me Your Light!” “Lord, God, for the Highest Good, please take anything that stands between me and the Spirit I am!” And then to tell mySelf, “(my name) It’s okay to let it go!”
As an Initiate, I also directed my basic selves into the action by saying, “Basics come present! I need your loving cooperation and energy to print the flyer now. Thank you and keep up the good work with this!”
The Teachings that Dr. Lane brings forward Teach us that we are responsible for what we choose to persist in. I chose to give mySelf the Gift!
That immediate Gift of God is the Peace and the Joy and the Giving. There is none other.

The Greatest Gift I’ve ever Given mySelf was my decision to take Initiation into the Sound Current on the Path of Soul Transcendence. Being an Initiate truly is the Gift That Keeps on Giving!
I must tell you, I’ve Learned that It is an Active unwrapping with countless layers of unfoldment. I Walk a Devotional Path from fear of God to Love of the Lord, God. A key aspect of the Path of Soul Transcendence, as brought forth by My Teacher Dr. Roger B. Lane, is that it provides The Opportunity to Be with God Directly while in the body through the Spiritual Practice taught at the Time of Initiation. Dr. Lane is a Sound Current Master from Whom I requested and Received Initiation from several years ago. The Blessings and Grace extended to Initiates of the Sound Current on the Path of Soul Transcendence are Miraculous. Attuning to Them is an active process.
Unwrapping, unraveling, unveiling the Gem of the Truth of Who I Truly AM, The Spirit I AM, takes an ongoing mix of Loving Discipline, Forgiveness, Committment and Eternal Vigilance.
1. Loving Discipline - There’s no Growth without Love. Said Positively, it takes a lot of Love to Be an Initiate and actively Receive God’s Grace. Love of Self, Love of God, Love of Others; I’ve come to Know it’s all One and the same. It’s been a Journey of Surrender, Trusting and Allowing for me to come to hold Discipline as a positive and essential ingredient in my Tool Kit.
How do I Discipline mySelf and What does that involve? Primarily, it involves Positive Self-Talk. This is a Practice of Lovingly Encouraging, Directing, Acknowledging and Bringing Present (aka Educating) my basic selves according to the 4 Rules of Self-Talk I have learned. The basic selves are the habitual parts of my consciousness that perpertuate reincarnational patterns and expressions of the lower (false) self.
The True Self is the Spirit that I AM, That Which is Omnipresent and All-ways accessible, is Strengthened and directly Reinforced by Practing Positive Self-Talk as well as by an additional Two-part Release Process by which anything I’ve allowed to stand between me and the Spirit I AM is Surrendered.
2. Forgiveness - Negativity is a large part of the world we live in and serves a purpose. It’s a guarantee that it will come up in the form of thoughts, feelings and habitual patterns. We are to use these as Opportunities to Lift and Grow and re-Focus at God. Forgiveness then opens me to being Present and provides a choice-point to Surrender any judgments I’ve placed on mySelf or on others or any of the negativity I was choosing to run. It’s the Soul-ution to any imbalance, incongruence and any other error in consciousness and a way to come into Alignment again and again with the Spirit that I AM.
As an Initiate of the Light of the Most High on the Path of Soul Transcenence, I’m Blessed with Being able to see, sometimes instantly, the effects of the negativity I’ve been running. I can easily go into thoughts like “not this again!” or “I should be further along” when I notice I’ve been had by my basics. The Antidote to this is Loving Acceptance partnered with Loving Self-Forgiveness.
Acceptance is the act of honestly and neutrally owning where I’m at in any given moment in my Consciousness. I might be judging or criticizing mySelf or another. Whatever the case, this causes separation from the Spirit within. By accepting where I’m at I allow mySelf another experience to come forward and take its place. Forgiving mySelf for any and all judgments I may have placed on mySelf or others keeps negativity from crystalizing.
3. Commitment - An active process. Really the proper phrasing of this element is Re-Commitment. Again and again and again and again as many times as needed and as Lovingly as possible.
Committing to mySelf and Life as an Initiate hasn’t always been the easy choice for me, up until now. However, this Path isn’t about focusing on what’s not so. It is about Actively and Lovingly Guiding mySelf to Return and Return and Return as many times as needed to Focusing at God.
4. Eternal Vigilance - Which brings me to the fourth ingredient; an important element of this Path and the Key to all the other important Keys I’ve mentioned thus far. Eternal Vigilance is about Being “the Loving Traffic Cop” (an analogy offered by My Teacher I’ve Surrendered into) and Choosing to Exercise my will as One and the same with God’s Will. Because I’m always at Choice and have the Power to Exercise It consciously. It’s what I invoke when I’m Practicing all the other elements. I do this by actively Co-Creating with God by calling in the Light Of The Most High by saying: “Lord, God, for the Highest Good send me Your Light and send this Light to My Teacher”. Then asking God to Co-Create with me by saying: “Lord, God, I am moving on x, y, z. For the Highest Good please Co-Create this with me!” I then practice The Power of Positive Self-Talk as well as the Two-part Release Process.
Choosing the Spirit within is the most valuable choice I could ever make. And Initiation into the Sound Current is each Soul’s Golden Opportunity to Unwrap and Activate the Greatest Gift there is and ever will Be: The Living Reality of God Within.
And I’m Worth this Investment!
And so are you!

Ever wondered why?
About anything as it pertains to you? To humanity? To the planet?
Literally, anything…? “Why?” in terms of your or other’s work? “Why?” in terms of your or other’s relationships? Finances? Health? Family of origin?
No matter the story or context behind your questioning “why” there’s really only one answer.
It’s because it’s been Spiritually Correct (more on this below) for you and whoever else has been involved.
Sure, there may be “facts”, tradition or history involved with an experience that we allow to fuel the prevailing thought that “that’s just the way it is/things are”.
It’s easy to feel we’re victim of situations, be they relational, financial, or even regarding the level of dis-ease we may be experiencing in any moment.
There’s an up-until-now tenant however that’s key that’s available to us to transform how we identify with these situations in any moment. Going forward, the Power of Choice empowers us to experience differently ourSelves, others and really any and everything.
Then what’s this about things being Spiritually Correct? Doesn’t that give someone a license to act a fool and get away with it based on this premise?
No. We do have free will and God/Spirit does not go against it but no one “gets away” with anything. There is a perfect system of karma and reincarnation in place that you can rest assured is always at work.
And say we don’t like something or someone that’s been a part of our experience. It’s not that all of a sudden you have to go around pretending like things are all hunky-dory. But they are Spiritually Correct.
The key here is Acceptance. Of what has been and of what is. And most definitely Forgiveness for any judgments you may have placed on yourself and others.
And you can bet being free has everything to do with you and how you’re choosing to hold that situation or that person inside yourSelf. Judgments block the flow of Spirit. Do whatever you can, whenever you can to release them!
Begin by calling in The Light Of The Most High by saying: “Lord, God, for the Highest Good send me Your Light! Please take anything I’ve been allowing to block the Flow of Spirit!” Then tell yourSelf, how you call yourSelf, “(your name), it’s OK to Let this go!” From here, go about life from a place of inner Freedom and repeat this 2-part release process as often as needed!
And things are Spiritually Correct until they no longer are. Grace moves in and transmutes karma when the Soul or Souls involved have fully received Their Learning. And there’s a Way to Allow This Grace to be available to you. Through Inititation into the Sound Current the Soul is sparked Awake and is able to come to know Itself directly as Spirit while It’s in the body, strengthening in Spiritual Frequency while using everything to Lift and Grow.
And this planet is the perfect training ground for humanity to come into Proper Identification as the Spirit we are. We are HU-man, God man.
What’s crucial is exercising the Power of Choice. The Power to Choose where we place our focus as we move through each and every situation in life. There’s such beauty in the system!
The perspective you Choose to hold is everything!
So Choose now to live at Spirit; Choose now to live at God!
