Each moment is a lock that has a key. First, I must remember my aim to “Be.” This, in itself, is difficult, because I am not unified, I forget. But even then, when I do remember, there remain two more elements that determine whether I can unlock the moment: Can I find the right effort for this moment? And can I find the strength to make that effort? In this tutorial, we will explore these two elements. We will draw from a depiction of God creating Man in his own image by Lucas Cranach and see how these two elements are portrayed in this Biblical episode. And we will set a weekly aim that will help us observe these two elements in our moment-to-moment efforts to “Be,” an aim that will make us more intimately familiar with our hearts and our minds.
