(v 6 - 8) Don't you know that a little yeast works through the whole batch of dough? Get rid of the old yeast, that you may be a new batch without the old (as you really are). The bread without yeast is the same as the empty shell. Be without the yeast of the world. Be without the thoughts that seem to belong to you. Be free of the past, and welcome what is truth. It is your truth now, as it has always been the truth.
(v 9 -11) Do not partake of the thoughts that lead you to believe in the world. Do not entertain them as true. Let go of them as soon as they seem to be thought, and you free yourself to welcome thoughts that will seem new.
(v 12, l3) Do not worry about your brother's thought. For the thought you think he thinks is a thought within your mind. Look after your own thoughts, that you may be freed of your belief in the world. To be freed of the burden of belief is to be open to the realization of knowledge.
NTI 1 Corinthians, Chapter 6
(v 1 - 6) Do you disagree with your brother? Look in your mind. Do you find that thought there? If you can find even an inkling of this thought within your mind, then you believe in division. An empty shell will not hold this thought, because an empty shell is empty of all thoughts that are not of Mine. Empty your mind of all disagreements. Become, willingly, an empty shell.
(v 7 - l l) Do you have thoughts of temptation in your mind? Look at your thoughts of temptation, but do not focus your gaze on them. Instead, look at the belief that is their foundation. If you believe there are temptations in your mind, you must also believe that you are separate from God. For could God have temptations in His Mind? Whenever you see temptations in your mind, you are believing unreality. Let go of every thought of unreality. Become an empty shell. An empty shell has no identity, and so there is no identity to feel temptation.
(v 12 - 20) An empty shell has let go of everything that seemed to be, but wasn't. An empty shell has let go of false desires, untrue beliefs, concepts in support of the world and fear. All that an empty shell holds onto is the casing, which will hold onto Me within the world. That casing is made of trust. If it is not trust in the Holy Spirit, let it go. You do not need it. It does not belong in an empty shell, and if it is present, the shell itself is not empty.
NTI 1 Corinthians, Chapter 7
(v 1 - 7) An empty shell has been emptied, and it knows itself as empty. A shell that has not been emptied knows its own thoughts. Do not fear the thoughts that are in your mind. Do not fear that they do not belong there and so you are guilty. The thoughts in your mind seem to come to you of their own accord. You are not to be judged guilty for this. Practice is the answer until you know yourself to be an empty shell. You will find times when you remember to look at your thoughts and notice that your mind is full. That is a time that you are being invited to practice clearing your mind and becoming as an empty shell. Know there is an effective method of practice and there is a method that will seem to make the practice less useful to you. The effective method is to clear your thoughts by letting them pass upward. The less effective method is to press them back down into the place from which they seemed to arise.
To let the thoughts pass upward, you must remember to trust in Me. I have said that you are innocent. If you trust in Me you will be able to look at your thoughts and let them pass upward, out of the shell, leaving the space within the shell empty.
But if you do not trust Me, you will fear your thoughts, and you will repress them. In this way, the shell is not emptied, and there is pressure within the shell from where the feared thought is hidden.
(v 8 - 14) Remember this:
Your truth is as it is and cannot be changed.
If you seem to make a mistake in your attempts to empty your shell, do not worry. It is only practice. More opportunities to practice will be given. Do not worry that the shell must be emptied or you are a sinner. For in truth, the shell does not exist. Therefore, it cannot be emptied or full in reality. Therefore, the condition of the shell has no affect on your worth.
(v 15 - 24) You seem to be in the world and you experience yourself there, but I have already told you that you are not in the world. Therefore, nothing in the world can be important to who you are. The reason for emptying the shell is not to free you. You are free! The reason for emptying the shell is not to make you loved. "You are Love! The reason for emptying the shell is to let go of the points of experience that tell you that you are what you are not.
