This article is written in response to the many emails and comments I received about my blog, Do We Have Choice and Free Will? I knew there was some confusion and misunderstanding in the 3 Principles community about Syd’s teachings regarding free will and the power we have as humans to learn to make wiserRead more about Reflections and Alignment on Choice and Free Will[…]
I know this is a hot topic right now and that there is confusion in the 3 Principles community. There are some who are teaching that there is no free will. This is directly counter to what Syd taught. He taught that “free will and freedom of thought are the same power with two differentRead more about Do We Have Choice and Free Will?[…]
Often times, clients will ask me about the Oneness, telling me they find this topic confusing. Me too! When I try and figure it out intellectually, I find it very confusing. Then I’m reminded of Syd telling me years ago, “Don’t listen to my words. Listen to the feeling!” The best I can offer isRead more about The Simplicity of the ‘Oneness’ and Grounding[…]
A question I’m often asked by new and seasoned Three Principles practitioners is about developing some sort of form to support their work in various work environments. For example, a client working in education with youth has created a curriculum for teachers and students that is being shared around the country. It’s a beautiful workRead more about In the Moment ‘Form’ […]
As a child, I was brought up in a religion that looked at consciousness in a very different way than how Sydney Banks taught us about the Principle of Consciousness. In my early religious education, I was taught to be conscious of my wrong-doings so I could repent, change my behavior, and be more inRead more about A Deeper Aspect of Consciousness[…]
Here is a humble, earnest question from a client, Deanna, whose life has been impacted by the Three Principles. She is wanting to transition from her traditional coaching methodology to Principle based coaching. This is a question frequently asked by many.
I love when a client asks a question that concerns them and in responding to their query, without knowing the answer prior to my reply, the words slips out in a way that helps me and my client ‘see’ more. When the recipient is touched by the truth of the response, it’s a win-win situation.Read more about I trust Wisdom “but”. . .[…]
Society tends to look at achievement as a measure of success. In our exploration of the Three Principles, we often continue that same tendency; to look for more—more understanding, more well-being, more peace, more, more, more. It’s our human nature. This is the game of life or as Sydney Banks often remarked, “life is a contact sport”.
Our human nature is always looking for ‘more’ while our spiritual nature is advising us to be grateful for what we have. How do we resolve this dilemma?
Once again, the answer is simple.
Sometimes insights are so subtle that people don’t realize the power contained in the information because of the subtlety. Even when they share it with someone, they still may not realize the full impact they have experienced. For example, realizing they have a choice whether to engage in negativity or to see it with understanding. Even when they come from understanding, they still may not get how powerful and transformative the change in their behavior is. It’s like their intellect hasn’t caught up with the difference in their internal workings.
One of the most frequent requests I get from practitioners and from ordinary people is to learn how to deepen their understanding or another phrase is ‘how to deepen their grounding’. I ask them to tell me more about themselves so I can get a feel for how they see life. I’m interested in what they find most meaningful about the Principles and how this understanding has helped them in their lives.
