Self-Remembering

“There is more than one meaning to the term Self-remembering because of its depth and breadth. The first meaning is that Self-remembering is a state, specifically, the third state of consciousness … [where] we can receive influences from the higher centers, or the Kingdom of Heaven within us … The attributes of the third state are self-awareness, individuality, a degree of will, consciousness and Real I. …

“The practice of Self-remembering is an exercise in which you lift yourself up internally, above the thoughts, emotions, and traffic of everyday concerns and psychological activity into a place of silence and stillness. The traffic is going on below you but you are not engaged in it in any way. You don’t acknowledge it or even observe it and you don’t contend with it. For a moment you are above it, untouched by it in quiet receptivity.

“Then there are degrees of Self-remembering that every Work practice embodies. This definition means to bring consciousness of the Work to the experience of incoming impressions. it means to apply the Work ideas to yourself when you experience incoming impressions … Every Work practice is a degree of Self-remembering because each carries a taste of, and briefly touches, Real I …

” Self-remembering [is when] you seek unity with the source of your Being.”
