Question: I have had moments of spiritual awakening. Yet, these moments seem to fade all too quickly. When such moments arise, I have a new depth of clarity and silence. Are there any specific lessons to apply during these moments to help anchor myself there?
Answer: Nothing is more priceless than those moments when we suddenly are able to see that the world that we took as being everything was only a small part of a greater something. Suddenly, we realize we indeed dwell within ourselves within a much larger world than we could have hoped existed. When these awakenings come, it seems natural to want to hang onto them, but consider the following: In a certain sense, that moment of Light came unannounced. Its presence awakened you to itself and all that it revealed. Now “you” want to be the one who possesses this Light and who can call upon it at will. This “you” is what is standing between you and the Light, and as difficult as it is to do, you must work at letting go of every wish you have to return to any moment once glimpsed.
One reason we must learn to say “Yes” to life — regardless of how much we may not want what it brings — is that whenever we embrace a fearful or negative view of some unwanted situation, not only must we still find our way through the twists and turns of such trials, but now we must also walk through them blinded by what is no less than the darkness of our own discontent.
Just as the wind moves through a tree and carries its pollen to the blossoms of another tree,
all of our relationships in life are intended to help “pollinate” the soul so that
the true understanding of why we are here on earth can flower within it.
Guy Finley explains that when you have the courage to refuse to live from past patterns and false sentiment, higher help will appear to guide you through the proper action to take in your relationships.
