Vrede vinden in jezelf


Quotes pathwork lectures E2023

Week 1: Lecture 37: “Ask yourself in testing time: “What do I mean by feeling that way? Am I struggling against this? Doesn’t my struggle mean that I reject in pride and self-will the lesson life has to teach me? Isn’t the fact that I am afraid of this lesson a sign that I love myself too much, being afraid of all the little hurts and disadvantages?”

Week 2: QA232: “You die many, many times, just as you are born many, many times. A lifetime is but a day from a different measurement system. It is but a dream you have during a night in a different measurement system.”

Week 3: Lecture 133: “To the extent an individual is capable of experiencing and expressing real love, to exactly that degree is he capable of manifesting constructive, healthy anger. Both come from the inner self.”

Week 4: Lecture 148: When you feel envy or, the other side of the same coin, the need to impress others or be better than they, try to feel the constructive power behind this need. For this need is only a distortion of the inborn urge to realize the best in you. When you do this, you will no longer find yourself blocked and paralyzed.”

Week 5: QA 150: “The fear of happiness is a general condition that exists in every human soul, and most human beings are not aware of this fear. And the way most human beings handle it is that they unconsciously destroy the possibility to realize this happiness.”

Week 6: Lecture 218: “Ask yourself about whatever happens to you every day and every hour of your life: “How could this be a message or a reflection or an indication or a sign of a total picture about my life and its course that I still do not completely grasp?”

Week 7: Lecture 12: “There is one specific sphere where a life is viewed, sometimes even several lives. Now the spirit who has just concluded his earthly life sees his life with such clarity that he can no longer pretend and make excuses the way humans like to do. But here everything is clear and open.”

Week 8: Lecture 228: The active principle is movement and action. The receptive principle is the state of being, quietude. The active state gives out, the receptive state takes in. The active state is a tensing of energies, the receptive state relaxes them. If you combine the two in their own inner key of proper balance, then you have action and effort that are relaxed, effortless, and calm. And you have receptivity that is alive and vibrant.”

Week 9: Lecture 205: Each dreaded area bears the seed of the golden point. There is no evil, no horror existing that does not bear the golden point within itself. There is no death that does not bear the golden point of life. There is no darkness that does not contain the golden point of brilliant light. There is no evil in you that does not bear the golden point of your goodness.”

Week 10: Lecture 212: Only when you can truly give to creation of your unique contribution in a selfless spirit, can you also feel entitled to receive, to be fulfilled, to have abundance in all ways.”

Week 11: Lecture 49: If hostilities and aggressions are suppressed, if fears are suppressed and not faced, if hatred is put away because you feel guilty to hate and because it does not correspond to your ideal — all this causes destruction of the self and may in one organism create one kind of symptom and in others other kinds of symptoms. Tiredness is one such symptom.”

Week 12: Lecture 234: The humility of giving up perfectionism, the honesty to pay the price for developing slowly into a more genuinely perfect being are indispensable prerequisites — are, in fact, aspects of perfection already.”

Week 13: Lecture 211: “The more you expose the destructive part, the more you know of your true creative self. The more you expose the ugliness, the more you know your beauty. The more you expose the hatred and all its derivatives, the more you know of your already existing state of love that can then shine through.”
