In this special short talk featuring music performed live at Life of Learning Foundation in Southern Oregon, Guy Finley talks about the music and rhythm of life itself, and how we as human beings are meant to be sensitive instruments, responding harmoniously to each and every movement.

Learning to Discern

posted by Guy Finley

Question: What are the first steps in learning to discern the truth?

Answer: One of the things that makes music good for us is our effortless relationship with its harmony and balance, with its rhythm and composition. We don’t have to be experts to discern these elements because they naturally resonate with similar aspects in our own (presently unconscious) nature. The same holds true for discerning Truth. You cannot learn it. You can’t even be taught it. You just know it… and practicing what you know strengthens your relationship with Truth.

Living in the Light of True Self

What we must learn to ask ourselves, not once or twice daily, but a hundred times and every time it strikes us to remember ourselves, is this question: Where is my attention right now, and what is my experience of the moment as a result of its placement? If we ever hope to taste some measure of true spiritual freedom, then we must work to awaken ourselves to this relationship that seems to be between a reality outside of us, and the sense of self, of an “I” that’s produced through its constant consideration of its situation. This division — that presently exists between the world we see and our experience of it — does not exist other than in imagination. Yes, there is a relationship between ourselves and the world outside of us, just as there is a relationship between the sun in the sky and the flower that drinks in its light in order to thrive. But what is “real” is in levels and in scale, so that if we wish to know the level of freedom that doesn’t change or grow dark when the sun sets on what we have set ourselves to do, then we must enter that world within us where the Light of life never stops shining.

We are created interiorly with the capacity to share in the same creative forces that create suns; we are made to be the instrument of — and to help create — an order of light that though unchanging in itself, changes all that it touches.

The Music of the Mind

The music of the mind — its harmony, or not, is expressed by the order of its thoughts through which it is instrumented.

Confusion is dissonance; clarity is flow.

Freedom from the Bonds of Bitterness
Though we find no evidence of anything noble in someone who has betrayed us, neither is there anything noble in our bitterness.
