A LESSON BY THE FIREPLACE
Of all the lessons of conscious living, clearing up projection may bring you the most rapid relief from upset. I had a personal experience of the power of projection a while back. I was in front of the fireplace talking to Kathlyn. Without realizing it, I was leaning to one side, propped up at an uncomfortable angle by my arm. As the conversation continued, my side of the conversation grew more and more negative. Soon I was focusing entirely on the pain of human existence and my paltry role in it. After a while my mate gently pointed out the tone of my words and inquired, “Could it be that it’s your arm hurting and not the world?” I changed my position and suddenly the world looked like a much better place.
