Once we realize that what makes any moment seem impassable is nothing other than our own resistance to what it asks of us, nothing remains impossible. Everything eventually yields to the one who persists.
Nothing infuriates evil as much as being seen for what it is . . .
Guy Finley explains that we have lost our innate ability to discern what’s good from what’s evil, and instead make peace with anything that promises to reconcile a disturbance within us. But you can’t have your own life when something in you is convincing you to do what you know you ought not do. Your work is to see what you turn to inwardly in times in trouble, and instead allow a higher love to answer the disturbance for you.
There is nothing to do, only something to see . . .
Blind reactions based on an incomplete understanding of your circumstances always sow the seeds of yet other unwanted moments yet to come. Everything you “do” in this manner only serves to create more of the very disturbance that you had set out to silence in yourself. This is always true because resistance to any disturbance in yourself ensures its repetition.
Trying to escape a noisy mind may seem as if you’re putting some real distance between yourself and all its chattering, but here’s why this kind of action never really resolves the problem. Only a noisy mind wants to get away from itself—something that it can never do any more than the tip of a pencil can escape the eraser on the other end that it fears is trying to rub it out!
Think for a moment: does silence fear any noise or does it just let it pass through unmolested? This means any frantic wish to be still must belong to a part of your lower nature that’s already disturbed—one that is trying to hide its pain by sending you to look for peace! So now you know the truth.
There’s nothing you need to do in the face of anything that frightens you other than agree to be still and see it. This order of awareness has its own power; all you need to do is place yourself where this living light can act for you, upon you. That’s the first step; take it, and then see how the Divine takes the next step for you. Watch it to prove—over and over again—that there’s nothing you can bring into its stillness greater than its ability to transform and transcend it all at once and once and for all.
