The sixth Module is all about knowing and getting to know our ‘Inner World’.  We are all very familiar with our Outer World – what we usually simply refer to as ‘the world’, but we are perhaps not so conscious of the inner.  This Module is all about getting an awareness of the Inner World that is as strong and clear as the Outer World awareness is, and getting a good, even balance with that between the two.

“When you know your Inner World as well as you know your Outer World, you may become unstoppable. Your creative impulse from Wisdom and Inner Guidance, to thought, to physical outcome, becomes flawless and uninhibited, as does your acceptance of, and best and truest response to, that which you do not personally determine.” – James Blacker, taken from Wisdom The Course

In acquiring this considerable interior awareness we will consider a full range of internal activities.  The first of these is an examination of Behaviour, Perception and Interpretation, as we look at behaviour in relation to designing our lives, perception in terms of some of the functions that determine what we actually notice, and interpretation in terms of how we interpret life and events according to the ‘lens’ of our beliefs systems.

Learning more about the interior world in this Module continues with investigation into some of the false promises of materialism, and also some of the actual genuinely fulfilling uses made of material things.  This is all begun with an understanding, which we shall give, of Intangible Nouns.

As we progress through Module Six, we take our understanding of the inner world, and combine it with our thinking from the previous Module on human potential and The Eternal Truths, to look at the growth and development of consciousness itself.

“The Inner World is no ‘better’ or ‘worse’ than the outer, and each influences the other. The point is, though, that we know our way around our Outer Worlds so well, and yet the concept of even having an Inner World is very much a rare or vague occurrence. When this Inner World is brought into as sharp a focus as the Outer World, the whole Life of the individual, and, for that matter, of any collective or group, has a much better chance of being understood, and of becoming truly harmonious and effective.

It is the purpose of this Module, therefore, to highlight the importance of getting to know this World as well as possible. It is something to be an enjoyable and ongoing exploration of Life – and one which will reap rich rewards of all manner.” – James Blacker, taken from Wisdom The Course

“We have here a rather pleasant and seemingly straight-forward picture of the expression or Contribution of what any individual has to offer, which can lead to a prosperous and happy life. And we receive to the extent that we contribute, and then also allow ourselves to receive accordingly. So what gets in the way of the expression of all these wonderful things, in any case?

The build up of negativity or negative conditioning during life creates a subdued sense of both possibility and the Grace to receive. We may also, Egoically, over-emphasise the importance to our sense of Self-Worth of achieving certain things, and so this fear-generated attachment to them gets in the way of the appropriate processes which can bring about their achievement.”
