PSST Golden Text
What do or could we have need of? What are our true needs? How can we discern between temporary wants and substantial needs?

PSST Responsive Reading
Define faith. What is it and how does it lead to such great feats as described in the RR?

How do we listen for this guidance? How do we hear this voice? Can we hear this inspiration if we are always staring at a screen? What does inspiration and faith look like in the digital age?

PSST Section 1
What does it mean to be taught of the Lord? What do we do, either consciously or unconsciously to hinder this teaching; and how can we work to be more open to being taught of the Lord?

Why does this first section of the lesson focus on knowing God? How can we use Mind to get to know God better? What benefits does this section say come from knowing God better?

PSST Section 2
What makes up this spirit of God that we have? And what constitutes the mind of Christ? Why are these good things in our lives?

Explore this section looking for all the benefits of understanding the oneness of Mind. Then discuss how we take advantage of all these benefits.

PSST Section 3
How comforting is this section!? Do any of your students feel misunderstood? Look in this section to see just how well Mind knows His perfect creation. What impact does knowing and feeling this about Mind have?

Take a moment with your students to practice looking beyond “fading finite forms” (S17). It could even take a large chunk of class to practice looking beyond the fading, limited expression of mortal mind to see the true idea behind it. You can ask for healings and discuss how the healing contributed to this. You can also discuss what the true sense is of normal, everyday experiences.

PSST Section 4
Building out from the first citations in this section, what does this say about heaven, where it is and how often we experience being in heaven?

How do we stay in the consciousness of divine understanding? How do we do this without falling to the temptation of sticking our heads in the sand?

PSST Section 5
How do we unwittingly argue against ourselves? How do we unintentionally limit our own unlimited expression of Mind?

PSST Section 6
Teach your students to see Divine Science as bringing unity to all mankind. Our successes are not in competition with others'. Mind's infinite manifestation has space enough for everyone to be excellent. Teach them to see that natural excellence in their fellow man.
