"There is a purpose to this class, as all of you know, and for all of my talk, you see, you have still not un-learned enough. For when I tell you that you create your own reality, none of you are really sufficiently secure in the belief to take advantage of it as yet, to grasp this great creative freedom of yourselves and use it to make the life that you presently live be the most creative and joyful for yourself and others. And so you give yourselves and others excuses, and you are in this position because of that, or you are in this position because of that person, or because of your background.
"Now, this applies to everyone here. Ruburt included to each of you. When you thoroughly recognize the majestic freedom of your own being, and your own creative power, then you recognize yourselves as creators creating your daily life and joyfully helping create the mass experience of the world as you know it. And then, you are ready to say I act out of the full joyful knowledge of my creativity.' Then you do not blame events or others or circumstances. Then you are able to thank yourselves for the joys of your being and the glory of your days. You are able to say to the smallest cell within the ear, ‘I give you greeting. I am thankful for our joint creativity, for our eternal knowledge which is ever new.’
"And your dreams will help you point the way to your own freedom and they ARE pointing the way to your own freedom.
"Again, from my reality to yours. If there is one gift that I would give you, it is the reflection of yourselves as I see you, returned to you so that you could sense, as I do, the miraculous joy and freedom, and trust it. If you make mistakes, they are your own mistakes, and you learn from them. If you make decisions they are your own decisions; you can make new ones. If you are afraid of making decisions you cannot learn from them."
