The Secret of Avatar’s Appeal
One of the most amazing things about Avatar is the diversity of people who study and teach the course. It is not uncommon to find people from more than thirty countries, many different cultures, lifestyles, and faiths studying and practicing together to earn a license to deliver The Avatar Course. In the following editorial,
Harry Palmer, the author of the Avatar materials, responds to the question, “Why does Avatar have such broad appeal?”
One of the goals in writing the Avatar materials was to create a methodology that side-stepped any indoctrination or invalidation of belief. This required, as nearly as possible, an antiseptic approach. The focus had to be on HOW human consciousness operated, not on the content of consciousness. With any discussion
of content, there was always the risk of being drawn into some belief system or succumbing to the intellectual urge to say, “This is how it is. This is what it means.”
Avatar teaches people an effective way to configure their consciousness without getting into what they should configure it with. That’s what I mean by an antiseptic approach.
“There will be no effort to indoctrinate you with any belief or truth. What you believe is what you believe, and the truth you discover is your truth.” —ReSurfacing®
How Does Avatar Work?
Avatar works through belief management. You can use its tools to deliberately restructure the beliefs that form the pattern of your life.
Your own beliefs are actually the most powerful forces that influence your existence. They determine what you perceive and how you perceive it; they influence your thoughts, your expectations, and your actions. They shape your personality. They even effect the outcome of your actions and the way that others perceive you and respond to you.
Avatar helps you explore “behind the scenes” of your existence and discover the uninspected, unconsciously-held beliefs that are causing your life to be as it is.
