the Exact Moment – venice class – Jul 23, 2015 th

Erich: Yes. Whenever it occurs to you. Just that in itself is a good thing to remember.

Therefore, in terms of homework, you don't have to remember to do it from now on. But, if it occurs to you — WHEN it occurs to you — that is the exact moment you should be doing it.

When it occurs to you that is the Universe tapping you on the shoulder, saying, "Pssst... do the homework."

So, blow off having to remember to do anything.

But, increasingly, be willing. When it occurs to you, get it. "Oh yeah! OK. Right now is the exact moment to do the homework."

Satchitananda ~ the Joy of Conscious Being – venice class – Jul 2, 2015 th

Erich: So, one more thing. What I have been saying is that the feeling-tone of Infinity is the ease of Being, and that your real DNA is G-O-D.

Again, just hear that. This is a fundamental idea, like two plus two is four. You have to learn that, at a certain point. "Oh! Two plus two is four. It's not five. It's not three."

Your real DNA is G-O-D. It's not anything other than that.

Therefore, whatever the nature of G-O-D is, is what you should be identifying yourself as. Otherwise, you are going to be walking around as a "three" or a "five" in the middle of a four-world...

2 times 2 equals 4 – venice class – Jun 30, 2015 tu

Erich: So, again, thank you for coming to class today. Thank you for coming as regularly as many of you have been coming. I appreciate it. It inspires me. It makes me want to do better.

I always ask inwardly for guidance about what to talk about and what to do in here. What keeps coming up is, "Keep hammering on what we've been hammering on" — until we're a little clearer about it, and a little clearer about it, and a little clearer about it. Until it's obvious that, "Yes, that's sort of the way it is. Maybe that's the way it is. Yes, that's the way it is. Maybe. Yes. No. Maybe. Yes."

Again, it revolves around the word "infinity" — which may not seem relevant. And yet, as it turns out, it's the relevant concept. We have been talking about this a lot. I don't need to keep saying it the same way, again and again. But, the gist of it... And just sort of hear this.

Infinity is The All.

Infinity is the Conscious Space of Awareness in which everything that's happening is happening...

Forms and Formlessness – venice class – Jun 25, 2015 th

Erich: So, for example — and this is where it has taken me. Look at something that is in your actual field of vision right now. Actually look at something.

I can see this iPod. I can see my watch. I can see the tape-recorder. I can see the schmacker. I can see the bell.

Anything that you can see is a form.

A form has a border and a boundary around it.

And what we have been saying the last number of months, years, is that forms — anything with a border or a boundary, like bubbles, or clouds, or schmackers — are floating in formlessness.

A cloud floats in the sky. A cloud has a border and a boundary, but the sky doesn't. The sky is a pretty good analogy for formlessness. There is no border or boundary around the sky, and yet it is really there...

Letter to a Friend – venice class – Jun 23, 2015 tu

Erich: We have been talking about something very interesting. I want to get into it again and then I want to read something. I have never read anything in here. I wrote it, but I am going to read it.

But, just the background on this — and remember, it's easy to get into a guilt trip about this. But, it's just as easy to not get into a guilt trip about this. And I am saying it so that you don't go into a guilt trip about it, but so that you actually start having hope.

The Feeling-Tone Of Infinity

The big picture is Infinity, the not finite.

CONSCIOUS INFINITY is the SPACE in which everything is happening...
