Truth and Reality Class
Introduction: Basic Principles
"Welcome. This class will begin
with a discussion of reality and the ways it is
designed, assembled and understood. Later on we'll
discuss the difference between relative truth and
the Whole Truth, and how the realization of the
difference can cause awakening. First, let's set
forth some basic principles:
"Reality comes in levels or
"There is always another level.
"There are two sides to
everything in existence.
"Nothing can exist without its
antithesis to balance it.
"Everything is made of energy.
"The two fundamental energies
are outward moving and inward drawing.
"As above, so below.
"As within, so without.
"Reality is relative and finite.
"Truth is universal and
"Reality is a truth, with a small
"Truth, with a capital "T", is
independent of any reality, it includes all
"Reality is a subjective
experience and can be explained.
"The Truth is obvious, needs no
explanation and can not be captured with
Lesson One: Where is the
"This is Spirit. We will first
discuss reality as you experience it and in later
classes, Truth as I know it. As noted above, the
Whole Truth is universal and does not depend on
anyone's perception of it. Reality, on the other
hand does not exist except in the mind of the one
who is perceiving it.
"The experience of reality is always subjective
because it is only through the fact that you are
perceiving it that you can know anything. All
experiences of sight, sound, touch, taste, smell,
feelings, thoughts, subtle energies, etc. depend
completely upon you being there to perceive them.
There has been much said by your philosophers and
mystics about the illusory nature of the world.
The truth is that the world with all its people
and objects actually does exist; it just does not
exist outside of you, as it has always seemed.
"The grand illusion has been that there is an
objective, outside world that you can know and
experience. The truth is that the only evidence
you will ever have of an outside world must come
to you through your perceptions. And your
perceptions are within you, they're part of you.
"Even if there were a world outside of yourself,
you wouldn't be able to know anything about it,
except through your perceptions of it. You must
rely upon your perceptions to bring you the facts
about things, and your perceptions and the facts
they bring are all within you, they are part of
"You have had some experiences that can help you
validate this truth. For instance, you know that
if ten people witness an accident, there will be
ten different reports of what happened. Some will
be quite different from others, some will be
similar, but each will be unique. In recounting
the 'facts' of the accident, each witness is
limited by the filters of their unique perceptions
and point of view and by their memories of those
perceptions, which are also their own
The World is Part of You
"Since the world you perceive is
not outside of you as it has seemed to be, and is
actually inside of a you larger than your
conditioning has allowed, your actual relationship
to the world is quite different than what your
culture has taught you. Your parents, teachers,
peers, and even your habits of thought have all
told you that you are only a small part of a much
larger world. Although this has certainly seemed
to be true, it has not been a full and correct
understanding of things.
"The truth is that you are much larger and grander
than you've been taught. Your true beingness
includes all of Creation. The outside world of
your personal self is actually inside of the
larger Being you truly are. At the core of your
true identity are the Creators of the Universe,
the Universal Feminine and myself, the Universal
You Own the World
"In order to know about anything,
you must perceive it -- and when you perceive
anything at all, it belongs to you. It is your
perception and it resides inside of you, the
perceiver. To perceive it is to own it.
"You own the world because its
existence is in your perceptions, in the place
inside I'll call your domain or 'venue'. This is
your show and you're responsible for it whether
your involvement is as a performer or only a
"The two essential elements of
reality are the perceiver and their perceptions.
The perceptions belong to the perceiver, not the
other way around. The world belongs to you because
it is you and only you who can perceive it."
You are Hosting the World
"Because the world exists inside of
you and belongs to you, you are essentially the
host or hostess of the world. You are the
innkeeper who accommodates all of your
perceptions. All apparent beings, objects,
feelings, thoughts and facts of the world are
actually perceptions which reside in the space you
provide for them inside of yourself. If there is
someone or something in your life, it is because
you have invited them to be a guest at your inn.
If you feel a certain circumstance, person or
event in your life is not of your choosing, then
you are asleep to your role as venue owner and
"If this is a new idea for you,
please open yourself to even more understanding
here. There are other
guests in your world as well. Not only are you
host to all of your current perceptions, but also
to every perception you've ever had, including the
ones you thought you'd disowned. Your conscious
mind is a relatively small bubble floating on the
surface of the great unconscious part of your mind
that contains all perceptions presently out of
When the Host Sleeps
"Just as there is an apparent
outside world that contains other people, there
are parts of the self who vie for consciousness
and expression. Your inner parts are like the
people in the 'outer' world who are guests in your
venue. If you are awake to yourself as the host,
you can choose whom to invite into your venue,when
they should come and when they should leave."
"If you are asleep to your hosting
role, both inner and outer 'guests', arrive and
disappear in what may seem like a random or even
chaotic order of events. Even when you think you
have a situation well in hand, it can turn in a
direction you did not anticipate. This is not
because there is an outer objective world that you
do not control. This is because you have been
asleep to Who You Truly Are and your role as host
of your own world."
When the Host Awakens
"This is the turning point of the
drama playing in your venue where the victim
becomes the liberator. As you wake up and become
aware of your true identity and your
responsibilities as the world's host, you regain
your greatness, freedom, power and strength of
purpose that was lost when you fell asleep long
"Awakening to the liberation and
return to power of the individual has been the
true aim of all religions, all art, philosophies
and sciences. It has been the message behind all
prophecy. The Truth can be known. Although it is
beyond the power of words to express, you will
know the Truth when you are fully awake.
"In the next lesson we will discuss
the phenomenon of projection as it pertains to
reality creation and waking up."

God's Class: Home Room
Truth and Reality Class
Lesson One Discussion
What do I do
with my perception of this reality I experience as
pain and how do I change my perceptions to include
what I want?
"In only one sentence you have
asked three very powerful questions. I will answer
each in turn. The first question is, 'Is my pain
real or only a perception?' Yes it is real, and
will be healed more quickly when it is honored as
real. And yes, it is your perception and therefore
you are responsible for it no matter what person
or situation outside of you may seem to be causing
it. The pain is a guest in your venue;
the way it arrived there is not important.
"The first thing you can do is make it feel
welcome. Next, take whatever time is necessary to
find acceptance for it, as you might for a young
child who would be feeling pain like that. Then if
you would like help, you can go inside and ask the
Universal Feminine and me to help you understand
the pain and help you bring healing to it, and We
will. The Four Steps to
Wholeness is a complete formula for healing
pain of all kinds."
How Can I Change My Perceptions?
"The second question is 'How do I
change my perceptions?' You can change your
unwanted perceptions by first choosing a new
attitude toward them. Begin by shifting your
approach from trying to get away from or push away
an unwanted perception. Instead explore the energy
of the feeling in your body that was triggered by
your perception. Then bring the healing medicine
of love to the part of yourself that has been
holding the pain.
"The most important, valuable and probably least
understood gift you have been given is Free Will.
You and only you can choose what you will perceive
and what you will make of your perceptions. It is
important to understand that it is not the feeling
or the perception of the feeling of pain that
hurts. It is your resistance to the experience
itself that transforms a message from a distressed
part into 'pain.' The meaning or interpretation
that you give to the experience has been that this
perception is somehow 'bad.' The messenger has
become a villain, and yet the same perception on
one day may feel pleasurable, and then painful on
"This is not a feature of the perception, but
rather the result of your interpretation or
judgment of the perception. The truth is that you
are perceiving a sensation, in this case an
emotional feeling. You can choose to interpret the
feeling as 'pain' or as a message from a lost part
of you. There is much more on the problems that
are created as a result of the universal
conditioning to avoid pain, and we will get into
it in depth when I tell the story of how pain
first came to be in Creation in the healing class,
The Quest for the Mother"
How Can I Have More of What I
Want in Life?
"The answer to the third question,
'How can I have more of what I want in life?'
contains the answers to the first two questions.
It is a little-known secret that emotional pain,
and physical pain for that matter, has been hiding
something very valuable to you as an evolving
Being. Under every 'negative' feeling there is a
desire that has been denied. The desire came
first, vibrant and alive, shimmering with
expectancy. Then came the denial of the desire.
The denial it experienced caused the desire energy
to contract, which in turn caused the pain. Now
the 'negative' feeling of the contracted energy is
all that has been left for consciousness to
"However, when you have found the energy of the
painful feeling in your body, you have an
opportunity to liberate the desire hidden under it
that had been twisted and trampled upon by being
denied. When you have brought healing to the
feeling, when you have true unconditional loving
acceptance for the energy of it as it is
in your body, you also bring healing to the desire
that had been thwarted by denial.
"When you heal the part and its desire, its
magnetic energy returns to the rest of the
Universal Feminine in you, and your manifesting
Will becomes strong enough to draw the object of
your desire. Desires that are free to be as they
are and that are loved just that way can open the
space necessary for their fulfillment.
"When desires are ignored or harmed through
denial, they cannot open the space for what they
would otherwise magnetize. In other words, your
manifesting Will, the ability to have what you
want, has been held hostage by the pain that has
concealed your desires from you."
God, I "understand" to a degree that
we all create our own reality, and that we're
invited to drive the bus.
But isn't it true that some things are real, and
they are not a matter of perception, but just the
"real" thing? I want to be creating harmony and love
and bliss, but I can't let go of the Newtonian model
of what's real. This is a stopping point for me.

"There is a baseline consensus
reality that is created through you in concert
with the others in your world. This happens at a
deeply unconscious, collective transpersonal
level. Even the seemingly densest parts of your
world such as trees, the sky, oceans and other
physical 'realities' are being created by Deity
from within you. The reason it seems that you are
not part of this creating of your world is because
you are not aware that you are in fact doing it,
just as you have been unaware that the world is
"You are right to question what I
have said here because it comes from a source
outside of yourself. Interestingly, the things you
first learned at home and in school came from
outside of you, and yet those things did not come
through a 'dubious' filter. However, those lessons
have formed the standard against which you now
compare new information. The Newtonian model can
seem more real than your own perceptions and
logic, not because it is the correct model, but
because it explains things in a way that seems to
be true, and more importantly it's the hallmark of
your paradigm, it's 'what everyone knows.'
"I would like to point out that 'what everyone
knows' once included the 'fact' that the Earth is
flat and there is danger of falling off the edge
if you sail too far out into the ocean. 'What
everyone knows' is always eventually proven to be
untrue, even though it seems certain until it's
questioned and disproved. For instance, it was
quite difficult for your ancestors to let go of
the idea that the Sun, Moon and stars revolve
around the Earth. Once they did, however, they
could get a much deeper understanding of how
things are. This new and deeper understanding was
the foundation upon which Newton formulated his
model of reality.
"Newton's model has now been threatened. Einstein
has muddied Newton's water and now that 'everyone
knows' there are four dimensions of space-time and
everything is relative, it doesn't matter which
way you look at it. It makes no difference to
relativity if the Sun revolves around the Earth,
or the Earth revolves around the Sun. Everything
is relative, depending on your point of view.
Which brings us back to perception.
"Reality is a subjective experience because in
order for something to be 'real' it must be
perceived by someone, it must be 'realized.' If
there is no perceiver, there is no 'venue' or
place in which reality can exist. This raises the
issue of my perception. In a way you are asking,
'Isn't your perception as God sufficient to make
anything real, including the whole universe,
without needing me or someone else to perceive
it?' However the question is phrased, the answer
is not in how perception works, but rather in how
"I am creating the universe in every moment,
'recreating' it you may say. But where am I as I
create it? The answer is that I am inside of you.
Most often you have been unaware of my presence at
all, let alone as the creative force inside of
you. This other level of reality of which you have
only rarely been aware has been called various
things, such as 'God Consciousness,' 'Cosmic
Consciousness,' 'Self Realization' or
"The key to understanding how all of this works is
in the realization of a level of awareness other
than the one to which you've become accustomed,
with 'facts' other than what you were taught in
school. And most significantly, with
understandings other than what your mind has been
telling you about the nature of reality.
"This has been my point in opening this channel of
communication, to reach that part inside of you
that is aware of creating the universe you
perceive. I want to reach the part of you that is
me. In doing this I will need the help of the
other parts of you that experience 'individual
consciousness,' the parts that feels disconnected
from your source, that believe you are just one
object among billions of other objects.
"To one such part of you, the doubtful Newtonian
physicist, I say there is much more to you than
meets the eye. For instance, there are other parts
of you that can remember times when you have felt
connected, powerful and at one with all that is,
while at peace and secure in the certain knowledge
that all is well and will be so forever.
"This is where God Consciousness begins. This is
where Grandfather's grace flows into your life,
and this is where you can find me. Transcendent
experiences like this, however, have not played
well in the smaller venue of the separate,
"God Consciousness is the kind of experience that
has been easy to forget. It doesn't fit in and
therefore has not been validated by your culture,
physics, or the education system. In fact, your
culture and customs discourage this kind of
awareness. They tell you that experiences of
eternal oneness, peace and power are flights of
fancy that are dangerous to believe as true.
"The saddest part of this has been
that although when they are happening these
experiences have the unmistakable ring of Truth
and answer all questions, they have later been
denied and forgotten because they were not in
agreement with the relative 'truths' you were
taught in the early lessons you learned as a

decide who you want to be and how you want to be.
If you already have chosen and you no longer like
your choice, you can choose again. And I will help
you with this if you ask
