1. WHAT IS PURPOSE?

We do not discover purpose for ourselves by defining what purpose is.

We so often ask, what is my purpose in life? I don’t know what it is. Show it to me and of course I will live that purpose if I agree with it.

-Your purpose is to develop purpose for yourself by knowing yourself honestly and also through choices committing as much of yourself as you can to a greater value than yourself or even your loved ones and your family.

For is it not true that animals likewise mate and have families, and work each day for their sustenance? How then will you be more than animal if you live your life like this unconsciously as the animals do?

Rarely is their a dog, for example, that knows it is a dog and develops its capacities as a dog to help others as an entertainer, companion or skilled worker at what dogs do best.

Purpose in life is not simply doing something, even if it has positive value. Purpose in life happens out of a committed focus and action process that you carry out in your life no matter what the obstacles. Your purpose is your life fully committed to a higher value than yourself.

PURPOSE EQUALS BENEFITS

We all want benefits. We all want to have a positive return on the work and energy we put out in our lives. What woman who becomes a mother will willingly starve because she has to stay with her baby all the time. She wants her baby but she also wants her man that conceived the child in her to stay around and bring them both food and shelter, and some relief from the constant child-care.

Our suggestion here: if you want positive benefits in life choose to live by a greater purpose than just benefiting yourself. Right?

You want to receive?

Then give?

Right?



2. WHAT IS DREAMWORK?

Response: Dreamwork as we do it is process work also. We don’t read books. We don’t just interpret our dreams. We follow our dreams and that creates experience to test our dream insights about ourselves. 

Dreamworking ones dreams is more than reading books. It is experiential process work. We see in followup dreams and themes changes in how we see ourselves and life, and greater effectiveness in life because of this.

Do you really believe in people’s self-assertions? Then why should you believe in your own self-assertions?


3. IF I COMMIT MYSELF TO DOING ONGOING DREAMWORK, LIKE WITH YOUR BOOK, MINI-COURSES OR THE ONGOING DREAMWORK CIRCLES, WHAT BENEFIT WILL I GAIN FROM THIS?


Answer: from experience, working with your dreams using our approach teaches you to act much more from your own inner, wisdom center, and not be caught up in what others say you should do, either as people you know, or from books.

Gain from the work on oneself


4. WHAT IS SO GOOD ABOUT WORKING WITH MY DREAMS?

Response: Too many people think erroneously that they can read books and gain enough information to improve themselves. 

Why is this not true? Who ever changed from reading a book? A lot of people think they have changed, but is this not the same ego giving the reading ego a good pat on the back?


5. WHAT GOOD IS IT TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME KNOWING MYSELF?

To answer the question, when you work with your own dreams you will learn to see your conscious self as only part of you. 

Our dreamwork method of looking at you in the dream, the dream ego, and seeing if you are congruent with the rest of your dream or in discord, means that one part of you needs to know and cooperate with another bigger part of you.


6. WON’T WORKING WITH ALL THOSE SYMBOLS IN MY DREAMS BE OVERWHELMING? HOW WILL I KEEP TRACK OF IT ALL? HOW WILL I KNOW THERE IS ANY VALUE TO TRYING TO WORK WITH MY DREAMS?

Answer: In using our dreamwork methods on your own dreams you learn to use self-awareness tools you can apply to other areas of life like relationships and work achievements. 

You learn a consciousness-making process and many core insights about yourself. You learn how to make yourself and effective and successful person in life. 

By healing your dreams you will be healing yourself as well. 

By understanding the symbols of your dreams you will be understanding what others symbolize for you and take appropriate action.

And many more things you will learn as well through dreamworking your dreams. Through experiencing yourself in new ways you will move beyond your present self into a more developed being.


7. HOW CAN YOU ASSERT ALL THESE THINGS ABOUT YOUR APPROACH, WORKING WITH YOURSELF AND DREAMS?

Response: we are reporting summaries of the results of over three hundred and fifty committed long-term students. Also from our own work on ourselves. Since we teach and work only with committed students we have core experiences of how the process works for people.

We don’t give answers, actually. We train people in the methods of consciousness and dreamwork, and then they use the methods to create their own direct wisdom experiences.

Is this not the best way, to come from ones deeper core self?


8. OKAY, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Response: Of course we want you to take advantage of the information and learning structures we offer. But first ask yourself, do you feel you need to change for the better? Do you respond here to at least some of what we say?

Then, the next step can be working with the free material we offer. Try out something that strikes you in your own life and see what results. Go over what you think you need at this time in your life? Then try to find it with what we do.

Commit first and then new valuable knowledge comes.


9. RESULTS OR PROBLEM-SOLVING?

Asking to be shown results you like before you commit to do the work with yourself just is not a realistic process that works for anybody.

We don’t promise results. We work with what is already happening in our lives to problem-solve where necessary. We teach problem-solving, not answers.


10. REALITY

Nothing is real unless we make it real with our own commitment to experience fully what is actually happening with our lives.


11. THINGS TO DO

We think you know what we offer. We have given a lot of information on these pages. Try us out. Get involved. Live more fully life as it is meant to be.
