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[…]
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.

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.
