Letting Go with Guy Finley

Free Yourself From Useless Thinking

QUESTION


I am easily taken over by re-running unpleasant events in my mind. If I say something stupid to someone, I’ll hear it in my mind for days afterwards. I know this is crazy, but I just can’t seem to help myself!


ANSWER


With each mental replay of an unpleasant scene, you go deeper and deeper into thought, desperately trying to find a way to escape what seems an intolerable situation. What you don’t see happening to you is that the more you think, the more you sink! Exactly the opposite of what you think you’re accomplishing. And the deeper you sink in thought, the less you’re able to see what the rest of you is doing. Driving recklessly, speeding, missing the exit you want — these, and other equally dangerous stunts, are only a few of the foolish things that happen to you while driving under the influence of a stream of self-compromising, self-wrecking thoughts. Your life, in moments such as these, is actually out of your hands. It belongs to your thinking. The relief you seek can never be a creation of thought. Your awakened awareness is all that is needed to be free of useless thinking. Drop any thought or action that creates conflict in the present moment for the promise of a better feeling to come. Your True Nature is now. There is no later. You can’t be divided and be content. Choose to be whole. Begin by consciously refusing to compromise yourself.

    Great advice. Learning to love yourself and building confidence and
    not taking the little mess up things we do to seriously.

    “Drop any thought or action that creates conflict in the present moment for the promise of a better feeling to come.”
    This one puzzles my mind. Does that mean that if I want to become more confident and realize I am worthy (because at the moment I feel Im not) that I should let go of this drive?

Let Go and Awaken to a Whole New You
In order to nurture our own awakening, we must first see the need to let go of those parts of us that we sense no longer serve us. This new kind of self-awareness is the interior “seed state” needed to outgrow and transcend our former level of self. But these seeds of higher self-knowledge must,
