In this podcast, Guy Finley talks about how getting angry over our present limitations actually prevents us from consciously meeting and transcending them.
We naturally want to discover more about ourselves through whatever it is that we attempt to do in life. And in order to do anything to the best of our ability, we must necessarily envision the kind of outcome that we want. But whenever events do not turn out as expected, we usually get angry at ourselves for having missed the mark. Anger is always the negative expression of some form of resistance that occurs when the expectation that we bring into a moment goes on after the moment has passed. The anger seems to prove that we could have done better than what we just did.

See Your Way Clear of Self-Defeating Thoughts and Feelings I'm sure that we can all agree that no intelligent, conscious man or woman would ever intentionally hurt him or herself. No one would choose to ache. Yet the fact remains that all of us do hurt ourselves every day with bursts of anger or fits of depression or anxiety. There can be no doubt, beginnin
Find New Happiness in Self-Wholeness Before we can know a happiness beyond the reach of conflict or sorrow, we must ourselves be whole; for any happiness apart from self-wholeness is only half a happiness and must, in time, prove itself so.
(Video) See the Whole of Yourself and Become a True Master Guy explains that in order for the spirit to make its home in a human being, it must enter into all their parts to reveal, heal, and unite them. If only one part of you is involved, the rest is for naught.
