Dr. Jeffrey Seibert and Dr. Rosemarie LoSasso
Deep within our mind is the Memory of Who we truly are, calling to us to awaken from our nightmarish dreams of sin, guilt, fear and death. However, our fear is too great to answer the Call with an unequivocal “yes”, and so we are led along a gentle path that provides us with many “opportunities … to gladden” ourselves. And yet Jesus gently chides us, not once but twice, to consider how many of these opportunities we have refused (T-4.IV.8:1; T-5.in.1:2). Not simply missed or overlooked, but refused. These classes explore the reasons behind our refusals, and attempt to help us to recognize more clearly how these opportunities represent joyful possibilities and not failures, as the ego would want us to interpret them. Central to this shift is the recognition that we cannot bring it about on our own, but need the help of our gentle Teacher, Who is “the Call to awaken and be glad” (T-5.II.10:5).
