Concept or Reality: Which Are You Living?
In this lengthy seminar, John-Roger lays out the differences between reality( experience in the now) vs. a concept (memory) and how we can get trapped in the vicious cycle of living in our memories that lead to depression/anxiety, limiting beliefs, and how that keeps from being the positive creators we want to be.
“Our life is designed to have experiences. It is also designed to have concepts…We have an experience, here, then we think about it. Then we think about the experience, and then we remember it. Then we think about it, then we remember it; we don’t get anywhere. We say, ‘Life isn’t working for me. Why is life so terrible?’ You’re driving down the [road] looking in the rear–view mirror. What can you expect? When the past keeps repeating itself? It’s because you’re looking back there.” -John-Roger, DSS | from the enclosed program
Stay with it, because later he shows us how we can retain what is useful to us without having to remember it, and reminds us how to live from a centered place, take control of our lives and create what we want.
In the Q&A that immediately follows the seminar, the audience members ask penetrating questions that delve even deeper into the concepts discussed previously. This J-R recording is a treat and not to be missed.
