The Spiritual Character of True Leaders, Part 2 of 4

posted by Guy Finley

What is the nature of the Best in us? Where is this fearless nature to be found? What purpose does it fulfill in our lives? Let’s answer these questions one by one to help us begin to realize this still secret and fearless part of ourselves.

First, the Best in us is that yet-to-be-awakened aspect of ourselves, of our higher consciousness, that doesn’t “think” about whether or not to act in the face of fear, but that knows, under any and all conditions, that it is impossible for it to fail. And because of this native knowing, our higher self lives without the usual limitations that fear always imposes.
What is the nature of the Best in us? Let’s see. Whoever we are, regardless of our respective circumstances, the Best in us . . . is our individual capacity to outgrow not just the limiting aspects of our own character, but to grow beyond even the best parts of ourselves already once transformed. In other words the Best in us is a secret part of us with an unlimited potential to transcend itself; a self-verifiable fact that, once seen, goes to prove the existence of a greater Consciousness, an infinite, compassionate Intelligence.
Check back every day this week for Guy’s special five part series on leadership.
