I've decided that I have to stop confusing the simple act of observation with negativity. Some people, in an effort to not "put any negative energy into the space,” refuse to say anything about anybody or anything that could be construed as being negative in any way.
I have found that the Key to Forgiveness of myself is not to forgive at all, but to understand. God has made it very clear to me that when I understand the actions of others, when I understand those others themselves (what informs them, what animates them, what motivates them), forgiveness becomes unnecessary. All I needed to do to find self-forgiveness, then, was to understand what informed, what animated, what motivated me when I made the choices and decisions I made, and when I behaved as I did.
I have received quite a few requests for topics to discuss in the Weekly Bulletin and one that kept reoccurring over and over again in your requests was The Law of Attraction. "Please, Neale, could you explain how the principle of 'Attraction' works, from the CWG point of view?"
Many humans have been told that What God Wants is for sexual union to be experienced only with one’s spouse for the purposes of procreation and the expression of love. One result of this teaching: Millions of people believe that sex may absolutely never be experienced in any way that deliberately prevents conception, and that while sex is wonderful, to experience sex simply for pleasure with no possibility of procreation is against the will of God and, therefore, “unnatural,” immoral, shameful and a giving in to baser instincts.
The combining of pleasure and shame in this construction has produced chronic emotional confusion: wonder, excitement and passion, yet embarrassment, fear and guilt, about sexual desires and experiences.
Let's explore something really fascinating this week. Let's look at the place in the universe in which God resides; the location in which God exists. Many people believe that God is everywhere, but do not believe that God resides inside of them. They may say this out of humility, but actually it is the height of arrogance to imagine that God exists everywhere in the Universe except in you.
