Letting Go with Guy Finley

Letting Go with Guy Finley

Wake Up to the Complainer in You

Following are three short key lessons. Use their insights to help free yourself from the self-inflicted punishment of complaining.

Until we become conscious of how many 
more times a day we complain about our 
life than we feel gratitude for the gift of it, 
we not only miss the taste of life’s secret 
sweetness, but we continue to sow the 
bitter seeds of our own sorrow.

It seldom occurs to us that whatever we 
persist with in our lives works to perfect 
the same, so that by allowing persistent 
negative thoughts and feelings to have 
their way with us, we unknowingly 
perfect self-punishment!
Learn never to blame another for the 
pain you feel, nor to complain about 
anything that life brings to your door; 
but this doesn’t mean to be accepting of 
those who would see you ache, nor 
should you be apathetic in the face of 
anything that challenges your hopes 
and aspirations.

    These 3 short lessons ( gratitude,awareness,responsibility)though compact, are abundant with personal meaning. What they resonate is to be aware, seeing things for what they really are, not our/my shortsighted, jaded, old “reality”. It is hard as I am still bombarded by negative thoughts, though now I am less likely to revisit these “familiar friends” over and over and they do subside as we/I become more cognizant of their presence. I know I can learn more about myself from people I meet and the usual knee-jerk reactions to thoughts that are triggered by situations that are outside my control. To live in the moment without my false self interjecting its’ interpretation of events is in itself freeing.
