Dr. Kenneth Wapnick was prolific in his teaching and writing. In light of this, the Foundation is grouping selections from Kenneth’s teachings by theme, to be offered in our monthly sales.
Kenneth was fond of quoting the line, “The world is too much with us” (the title of a sonnet by William Wordsworth), to emphasize how we live our lives from a place of mindlessness in reaction to the events of our world. Kenneth sought to help students understand the Course’s radical perspective on the world. The world—made to keep us apart from God—must be understood in terms of the two purposes it can serve. We are all familiar with the first purpose: the ego’s use of the world, which can seem to lead to both highs and lows in reaction to life’s events and circumstances. However, we find very challenging the Course’s radical second purpose: the Holy Spirit’s use of the world as
“the royal road to the unconscious,” another line Kenneth was fond of quoting (from Sigmund Freud). In other words, viewed with the Holy Spirit, the world can become our means for making conscious our unconscious choice for the ego thought system, the world, and mindlessness. Only then can we make a different choice, for the Holy Spirit as our Teacher and Guide.
