There is a paradox in this work: When I am in a higher state of consciousness I know exactly what I must do in order to “Be,” but I don’t need that knowledge because I already “Am.” When I am in a lower state of consciousness I forget what I must do in order to “Be,” precisely when that knowledge would be most beneficial to me. In this tutorial, we will explore the role of attitudes in bridging between these two extremes, a way of retaining some of the traces of my higher understandings even when my consciousness has declined. We will draw from the Biblical story of Moses descending from Mount Sinai with tablets, as an allegory of retaining something with us when we descend from a higher state. And we will set an aim to apply these methods throughout the week, pulling against the wrong attitudes of negative emotions by applying positive attitudes.
