Living in the Hearts

Flawed premises

  • I am either physical or Non Physical, either dead or alive.
  • My parents, because they were here long before I was born, and because they are my parents, know better than I do what is right or wrong for me.
  • If I push hard enough against unwanted things, they will go away.
  • I have come here to live the right way of life and to influence others to the same right way of living. And what feels right to me must be the right way of living for all.
  • Because I am older than you, I am wiser than you; and therefore you should allow me to guide you.
  • Who I am began the day I was born into my physical. As an unworthy Being, I was born into a life of struggle in order to try to achieve greater worthiness.
  • With enough effort, or hard work, I can accomplish anything.
  • To be in harmony with another, we have to want and believe the same things.
  • To path to my joy is through my action. When I am feeling bad, I can get to a better-feeling place by taking action. I can focus upon a situation that I think is the reason I am feeling bad, and walk away from it. And once away from it, I will feel better. I can get to what I want by leaving what I don’t want.
  • I cannot have everything that I desire, so I have to give up some things that are important to me in order to get others.
  • If I leave an unwanted situation, I will find what I am looking for.
  • There is a finite container of resources that we are all dipping into with our requests. Therefore, when I satisfy my request for something, I deprive others of that resource. All of the abundance, resources, and solutions already exist, merely waiting to be discovered; and if someone else gets there first, then the rest of us will be deprived of that discovery.
  • There are right ways and wrong ways to live. And all the people should discover and agree on what the right way of living is, and then that right way should be enforced.
  • There is a God Who, having considered all things, has come to a final and correct conclusion about everything.
  • You cannot know, while you are still in your physical body, the true reward or punishment for your physical actions. Your reward or punishment will be shown to you after your physical death.
  • By gathering data about the manifestations or results of the way the people of the earth have lived and are living, we can effectively sort them into absolute piles of right or wrong. And once those determinations have been made, we then have only to enforce those conclusions. And once we get everyone to agree with our determinations — and, more important, once we get them to comply with them — we will then have harmony on Earth.
  • Only very special people, like the founder Our group, can receive the right message from God. And all other messages from all other messengers are therefore incorrect.
  • By ferreting out the undesirable elements in our society, we can eliminate them. And in their absence, we will be freer.
  • A good relationship is one in which the dominant intention of each person involved is to find agreement and harmony with the other.
  • When I focus upon things of a physical nature, I am less Spiritual.
  • It is my job as a parent to have all the answers so that I can teach those answers to my children.
  • I can criticize successful people and still achieve my own success.
