Within us lives a timeless Self that cannot forget what is right, bright, and true
any more than the sun has to try to remember to shine each day.
Guy Finley explains that if you want to have a relationship with the divine, with what’s right and good, you must learn to stand up for truth within you. Have the courage to exchange self-concern for spiritual awareness, and you will be given all you need as you are put in relationship with authentic strength itself.
Question: Where is the line between not having an issue with anything and enabling or allowing? I don’t understand where I must “forget myself” and where I must stand up for something.
Answer: One should always try to “forget oneself” whenever one’s feelings about a matter are more centered around oneself — one’s image, opinion or pride — than they are with the event that stirs these sentiments; and one should stand up for what is right whenever the cost of that stance costs one something real, as in one’s image, opinion, or pride.
If we knew that the universe was set up for our higher transformation, and that Love is the underlying force in everything we see, and don’t see, we would never give in to the fear that keeps us locked in a prison of thought. So here’s something to remember that will always put the moment back into the right perspective: All things good come to those for whom the Good is all things.
Instead of rushing to a negative conclusion, wait and see. Give Goodness a chance to reveal itself – and it will.
