DISCUSSION QUESTIONS FOR LOVE IS LETTING GO OF FEAR By Gerald G. Jampolsky, M.D.
1) What is your overall opinion of the book?
2) We often talk about “repressed anger.” However, in the forward on p. 6.6, Hugh Prather writes, “All anger felt is expressed in some form.” Do you agree or disagree?
3) On p. 7.5, Prather writes, “We have been given everything we need to be happy now.” What does this require of us?
4) On p. 18.4, Jampolsky writes, “The mind can be thought of as containing reels and reels of motion picture film about our past experiences. These images are superimposed not only on each other but also on the lens through which we experience the present. Consequently, we are never really seeing or hearing it as it is; we are just seeing fragments of the present through the tons of distorted old memories that we layer over it.” If that is true, then what is our work to do?
5) What, according to Jampolsky, is the next step after we choose peace of mind as a single goal? (p. 24.4)
6) On p. 25.5, Jampolsky writes, “We can learn to direct our mind to open the curtain and reveal the light of Love that has always been there and remains our true reality.” How do we do this?
7) According to Jampolsky, what comes with divine guidance? (p. 28, #7)
8) On p. 29 #9, Jampolsky writes about “positive active imagination.” Have you ever used this technique? What spiritual practice does this remind you of?
9) According to New Thought teachers, why is it unnecessary to anticipate that t future will be like the past? (p. 33.1)
10) How does Jampolsky interpret an “attack” from another person? (p. 34.3)
11) What’s going on, according to Jampolsky, when we feel irritated, depressed, angry, or ill? (p. 34.3)
12) According to Jampolsky, we can’t change others, but what can we change? (p. 43 #4)
13) To have inner peace, upon what should our belief system be based? (p. 71.1)
14) How do we change our world, according to Jampolsky? (p. 85.2)
15) On p. 105.2, Jampolsky writes, “As we become older, we tend to accept the adult values which emphasize projecting past learning into the present and anticipated future.” How do we break this cycle? (p. 106.2)
16) On p. 124.1, Jampolsky writes, “We are never presented with lessons until we are ready to learn them.” Do you agree or disagree?
