Letting Go with Guy Finley


Choose to Be Teachable

posted by Guy Finley

Just as a ship lost at sea must make a course correction if it hopes to reach a safe harbor, so must the aspirant be willing to be corrected by life if there’s to be any hope of sighting the shore of heaven. And it isn’t really so much that life (itself) corrects us, as it is that it reveals us to ourselves… presenting us the opportunity to be self-correcting. But, when one considers that there could be no such correction without this action upon us, then — in some strange and mysterious way — life itself, its living light, must be part of this perfection process.

Refusing correction, the rejection of any moment that shows you the need to let go of who and what you have been up until that moment, is the same as refusing the potential to be re-integrated, for what is it that you’re being given to see when negativity strikes other than parts of yourself that would rather suffer over an event than understand it… that would rather stand apart and fight for “their” right to go on, then to welcome the Light that transforms them and their quarreling relationship with one another.
Each time you grow in true self-understanding, it isn’t so much that you have “learned” something new as it is that you have agreed to be made newly whole. With each true correction that we accept and agree to make within us, the mind and heart are brought into a new relationship with the light that reveals this need, and that then performs the marriage that gives birth to peace.
Welcome correction; choose to be teachable. If truth can’t touch you, it can’t make you whole.

Living in the Light of True Self
What we must learn to ask ourselves, not once or twice daily, but a hundred times and every time it strikes us to remember ourselves, is this question: Where is my attention right now, and what is my experience of the moment as a result of its placement? If we ever hope to taste some measure of true

The Music of the Mind
The music of the mind -- its harmony, or not, is expressed by the order of its thoughts through which it is instrumented. Confusion is dissonance; clarity is flow.
