MESSAGES

We follow a structured teaching called the Labors of the Month. A parallel is drawn between farming and the cultivation of consciousness. As a farmer attends to different aspects of their land each month, so do we attend to different aspects of our psychology. This offers a unified structure for all students, while enabling enough flexibility for each to focus on their specific challenges and needs.

Things repeat in one life, so just remembering how things happened yesterday you can avoid certain things to-morrow. Everyone lives in a certain closed circle of happenings—to one person one kind of things happen, to another person another kind. You must know your own types of happenings, and when you know them, you can avoid many things. – Ouspensky
