What to Expect in a Discussion Using Abraham Quotes
- PICK A QUOTE - Fan out the quotes like cards (face down) and let each person pick one. If someone's at the counter getting a coffee, just go ahead and begin without them.
- SHARE HOW YOU'RE LIVING IT - Ask people to find a way that the quote they selected is meaningful in their everyday life. We want to stimulate discussion on how people are using Law of Attraction in their lives as opposed to just talking about the teachings in a more theoretical way.
- WHO ELSE HAS A QUOTE - When the discussion veers off into other disciplines or some long winded story, that's the time (at a suitable pause) to ask who else has a quote to read. (Anyone can do this, not just the facilitator.)
- HOW DOES IT FEEL - The point is to talk about the Abe teachings and how they relate to our lives. Sometimes someone's telling a story or vignette that enlightens and sometimes...not. The way to cut to the chase is, you came for your Abe hit -- ask yourself if you're getting it, if this is ringing your bells. If not, find a way to kindly and courteously bring the group back with the next quote.
- ALL ABE, ALL THE TIME - All of us are probably into related teachings and practices, and it's natural that we bring some of that into our discussions. And since it can get hard to know where to draw the line, I just draw the line at Abraham. If it isn't "straight Abe" then bring the discussion back to Abraham. The quotes work beautifully for that, and that's why we use them.
- STAY AND CHAT AFTERWARDS - We naturally get to know bits of each other's lives as we discuss how this quote or that one pertains to us. Aside from that, we do not use meetup time for getting to know each other personally. Often a few people will linger to talk to each other afterwards and sometimes a group will go out to eat together. But our aim is to use the meetup time for "Abe work" and not for socializing.
