The Secret of Being Successful in All Worlds

posted by Guy Finley

A reporter who had a deep and personal interest in higher spiritual matters heard of a certain teacher of truth who was held in high repute. But what caught the reporter’s attention more than anything else was that this modern-day master was not only considered to have the Old Testament wisdom of a Solomon, but apparently he had Solomon’s wealth as well.

Although the details were sketchy, word on the street held that, in his earlier years, he had been the successful CEO of an equally successful corporation that he had founded. Then, for reasons unknown, he retired and started his philanthropic and spiritual school around the same time. And so it came to pass that the reporter sought out an interview with this man of mystery, hoping to learn the secret of his success in both worlds.

Shortly thereafter, he was granted a personal audience with the master. “Thank you for allowing me this opportunity to speak with you personally. I won’t take much of your time.”
“Not a problem at all; how can I help you? What is it you would like to know?”

Something in the presence and manner of the master told him that there was little point in trying to mask his real reason for wanting to speak with him, so the reporter came right to the point.

“Sir, what I really want to know is how in the world you were able to amass such a fortune, not to mention become respected as being one of the wisest men on earth?”

The master gazed directly into the reporter’s eyes. After many years of sitting with inquiring visitors of all levels, he could see easily into the hearts of those who had come to see him with such questions. What he found there determined how he answered them.

In this instance, he could see that the young man seated before him had sufficient self-knowledge to understand the subtlety of the answer he was about to give.

The master leaned forward and spoke: “In every sense of the word, the abundance in my life can all be attributed to a very simple method, something I started to practice when I was still a fairly young man. If you wish to know this secret, I would be glad to share it with you.”

The reporter nodded yes.

The master continued his thought. “Every time I got ready to give someone my two cents, I learned to save them instead.”

Key Lesson

As to our course through life, whether we profit a little or a lot, do hold this one thought: we are made, each of us, as much by what we will as by what we will not.

The Truth About the Past

posted by Guy Finley

So many people today are bitter, broken-hearted, or just plain angry because of what happened to them while growing up. The reasons for their resentment or regret are as countless as are the number of unconscious people who unknowingly create such pain in the lives of those they hurt. But here’s the truth . . .sunrise, lake, clouds

The Power to Change Your Past (Conclusion)

posted by Guy Finley

Who you really are—your immortal Self—doesn’t live in the past, and therefore cannot be punished by anything that happened there. If anything, the repeated pain of reliving whatever the problems may have been should show us that we’ve arrived in the wrong place, led there by misguided parts of us.

Imagine sleepwalking into a rundown, dangerous neighborhood and suddenly awakening to your situation. There’s no doubt as to your next action: you would get out of that place as fast as you could. Wisdom, if not pure instinct, prevails, and the same intelligence should hold true for us when it comes to our spiritual lives. What “once was” lives on only in an unconscious “neighborhood” in ourselves—one where we no longer belong. This in-the-dark level of consciousness is populated with the shadows of former painful experiences, both real and imagined. But their power over us runs only as deep as we are identified with that dream world into which we have fallen. We walk out of there by waking up, or by bringing our attention back into the presence of the living moment, where it belongs.

No one can teach us to leave the world of what was or to abandon those unconscious parts of us that actually need to relive their pain in order to live on; they cannot see themselves for what they are, nor do they want to.

We must see them, their world, and the pain of their reality as being something we no longer wish to walk with or through. Nothing can delay our departure from this lower level of self, any more than the ground floor of a skyscraper can keep you from taking its elevator all the way up to the observation deck.
