What is Pathwork continued...
We human beings are spirit, mind, feelings, and body. Each is reflected in corresponding aspects or levels of being. The aim of the Pathwork is to unify all these levels, and through this unification to fully experience and consciously inhabit our divine nature. In the Pathwork, we connect to spirit through prayer and meditation. We examine our minds to find conscious and unconscious misconceptions in our thinking that were formed in the past, especially in childhood, which need to be realigned with reality. We learn to traverse our fears so that we can acknowledge and express all our feelings, including our negative feelings, so that we may transform them into self- love and compassion for others. On the level of the body, we learn to reactivate the positive life energy at our core. We explore the roots of our negative life manifestations and learn to transform them in the light of our new understanding.
The Pathwork is a unique path: it expands the entire scope of our life. We increase our self-knowledge, accept ourselves as we are, and embrace a deep level of self-responsibility for the positive and negative creation of our lives. The Pathwork is not dogmatic. It has no required belief system and no ultimate authority except the Self. Rather, it is a path of conscious exploration in which life itself is our teacher. In the way we meet life, we come to understand all that brings us to our real self and all that keeps us from it. The lectures teach us that in this process we need to develop a healthy, mature ego. For it is only when the ego is strengthened, and purified of its misconceptions about life and its own task, that it can look beyond itself and recognize that it is only a part—albeit a vital part—of our greater self. By using the ego to transcend itself, we are afforded a way to become fully and consciously who we are: our real Self, our Godself.
