change and advanced human adaptation are not made on the basis
of any self-conscious resistance to old, degenerative, and subhuman
habits. Change is not a matter of not
something. It is a matter of doing something else
that is inherently right, free, and pleasurable. Therefore,
the key is insight and the freedom to feel and participate in
ways of functioning that are right and new.
tendencies and patterns of your earlier adaptations are not
wrong. They were appropriate enough in their own moment of creation,
and there is no need to feel guilt or despair about them. Likewise,

before you. Therefore, the creative principle of change is the
one of relaxed inspection and awareness of existing tendencies,
and persistent, full feeling orientation to right, new, regenerative
functional patterns. If this principle is practiced consistently

no regrets. Resort to Me in Truth and in the present. All that
has been done by anyone had its logic in its time. Only God

tending to persist, because it has not yet been replaced by
further growth. Hear My Wisdom-Teaching of Truth, and understand
what is the right, ultimate, and regenerative pattern of each
function of the human body-mind. Feel free of all negative judgments
about what you have done and what you tend to do. Turn with
full feeling-attention to the creative affair of new adaptation
in most positive Communion with Me, the Divine and True Heart-Master,
Who is Life, and Who is Alive as all beings.
