Letting Go with Guy Finley

Letting Go with Guy Finley

Enter the Peaceable Kingdom of Now

Either we are at peace wherever we are — because this peace goes with us — or what we call our peace is a product of some pleasurable condition over which we have temporary command. In situations like the latter, though largely unconscious to us, we sense that our peace is conditional. We know that we must work to keep certain prevailing conditions in place in order to remain at peace. And this, of course, means that we will resist any movement that threatens our desired estate. Clearly such a tentative peace is not true peace at all, because it dwells side by side, in league with an unseen conflict that is a basic requirement of its very existence!

What does this insight teach us? True peace is never a sensation. Its hidden nature is the expression of a timeless stillness, a silence not born of, and therefore beyond, the play of the opposites. This silence cannot be possessed. As it cannot be gained, neither can it be lost, which means that whomever it embraces lives in a world free of fear. 
What does this mean to us? True silence may be called upon, but as it is without cause, it always appears on its own, remaining only as it pleases its purpose. Nevertheless, one may court this stillness through a quiet wish to understand its life within one’s own. For this reason, our moment-to-moment meditation becomes a revelation if we open ourselves to truth and listen to what it reveals.
The peaceable kingdom of Now dwells within you. Allow your heart to remind you what the mind so easily forgets: there is a peace. There is a shelter. There is a timeless place in each of us that no darkness can shatter or dispel. Make it your one intention to spend your time there. Prefer its ever-present company to that of any promise of peace to come, and watch how your life grows happy and whole in stillness beyond compare.

    How do I find peace when I smell mens cologne on my wife while she is snuggled up next to me on the sofa? I did not say a word about it, but how do I make peace “inside me” with that fact, esp. when I love her. It hurts.

    Read the above passage several times when you can find a moment of calm. Your mind is racing now. The temporary problems you face now seem daunting but they are of our own making. Resistance to this moment is causing you pain , not the moment itself. The “facts” are from an external source beyond your control. What is in your control is your response to that and any situation that causes you to initially feel pain. What we love is our version of reality which very rarely plays out when coming up against the genuine product. Love, and take comfort in yourself and you will never have to rely on someone else to supplant it. Who you are and why you are here is never to be defined by another. You are that special.. you need only realize it in your own way in your own time. May 2011 bring you that peace your mind searches for…..

    GG, Was it your cologne that I was smelling? ;) What I love… is my wife. ;) It is not MY “version of reality”. If there is any falseness in our realities… it is nothing that I have “created”. I am who I am… across the board, the same with everyone I know. I do not “compartmentalize” my life. I know what I love about her, and I know what I do not. We, together are suppose to be honest and work together at this life – I guess that could be “my” version of reality right there. I know that it is I who has to take control of my emotions and thoughts in order to find peace. It has been impossible so far. I am not too sure we as spouses are suppose to just sit quietly and smile and accept that our partners think it is o.k. to betray and lie and cheat. It is very difficult to find peace with that. I can not stop loving her. It sounds like you are suggesting that I just learn to be happy with my wife telling me she loves me and can’t live without me, but… let it be if she wants to screw “whoever” whenever. I guess we should all live like that then. I will say no more… only suffer in silence and just love her however she wants. I am F@%ked.
