Pathwork Lecture #18 – Free Will

Kathleen Fisherwith Kathleen Fisher

"Will coming from the brain region will lead to tension, unless it is substantiated by will coming from the spiritual or magnetic field. Of course, even a right idea can take root first in the brain, but as long as it remains in that region alone, it will never have the power to penetrate all of the human personality." Lecture #18

The Guide teaches us that communication from our spiritual center has a different quality and character than the information we receive from the brain. We can develop a stronger and deeper connection to our spiritual brain – the spiritual magnetic field - by utilizing our free will.

Choosing thoughts that maintain God’s universal laws entails happiness, love, harmony, light, and supreme wisdom.During this presentation, we will discuss the Guide’s recommendations on where to employ willpower and where not. We will also explore the Guide’s teachings on how to find out what the will of God may be in any given circumstance.

‘Wishing or thinking from the spiritual field involves a person’s higher self or divine spark. Whoever has experienced this will confirm it. Whoever has a thought, an idea, or a wish evolving from the spiritual field will be completely filled with happiness and certainty. That person will know beyond the shadow of a doubt that the thought is true and that truth is living within the soul at this moment.’  --- Lecture #18

Our presentations take place at Shetler Studios, which is at 244 West 54th Street in Manhattan (around the corner from the CBS theater for Stephen Colbert's show). The presentation begins at 7pm, and is free (although a $5 contribution to the NYRP is requested, but not required). The presentation is on the 12th floor. See you there!

In addition to presenting the Free Will lecture on January 29, 2016, Kathleen will offer a 3-part themed lecture series on the Guide’s teachings about the significance of Jesus Christ. The dates are March 25, April 22, and May 20.


What If A Miracle by Pat Rodegast

What if a miracle is not just some concept

But something we've promised to live.

What if our lives aren't just circumstance coping

But blessings we've come here to give.

And what if our dreams and our risking and our chancing

Are wisdom's attempt to come through

And all of our life's "shouldn't, mustn't, and dare nots"

Are not what we've come here to do?

But rather to stand on top of our dreaming

Content to let faith lead the way.

To go beyond logic and reason and scheming

To be here and live what we pray.

And then to allow the unfolding to happen, to honor the spirit's command.

To dare to know greater than mind ever dreamed of

To be what we can't understand.

What is the Pathwork? Read Guide Lecture 204.

The Pathwork is a spiritual path of self-purification and self-transformation on all levels of consciousness. It emphasizes the importance of recognizing, accepting, learning to know and ultimately transforming our Lower Self or shadow side of our nature. Pathwork helps us understand that through honest self-examination, with carefully applied tools and practices, we can overcome and remove the inner obstacles that keep us from living fully from and in our Godself, our true nature.

The Pathwork is not dogmatic. It bridges psychology and spiritual practice. It places the greatest emphasis on freedom and self-responsibility. It does ask us to be willing to examine our beliefs, and to accept the inner authority of the Higher Self.

The Pathwork encourages us to develop a healthy, mature ego. For it is only when the ego is strengthened, and purified of its misconceptions about life and its own task, that we can go beyond it and understand that the ego that wills, plans, and controls is only a part of our greater self. By using the ego to transcend itself, we are afforded a way to become fully and consciously who we are: our Godself or higher self.

We all yearn for deeper, more loving relationships, and we all want more physical pleasure, vitality, and abundance. Ultimately, we want a sense of purpose for our lives that only comes with intimate contact with God.

The Pathwork is based in a collection of teachings (the Pathwork Lectures) that help us see and understand ourselves, enabling us to gradually remove the obstacles that keep us separate from others, separate from the source of our creativity and life energy, from our divine core.
