Letting Go with Guy Finley

The Spiritual Character of True Leaders, Part 4 of 4

What is the purpose of awakening the Best part of ourselves? It is to help us realize that once we understand how to call upon this presence within us to show us the way, there exists no time or place beyond which we cannot go. How do we come to this new and liberating understanding?
In the face of any limitation, standing before what frightens us, we must come awake and remember the Best in us by recollecting and then embracing the will of this Living Light. Then, from within this higher awareness, we must choose what we know is the fearless truth of ourselves as opposed to allowing the little will of the fear-filled self to tell us what is true about the moment and ourselves.

Here is what such conscious actions make possible: The Best in us knows that when we will act as though it is impossible to fail, it will be. This does not mean that we will not feel fear. Do not make this mistake. It means that standing there, in these moments, we understand that these fears and doubts coursing through us — that darken the way ahead — do not belong to us. These negative and limiting psychological forces are the vestigial visions of a self that we must no longer mistake as being our own.
There are two kinds of people in this world whose quality of life, like all of us, is determined by their outlook. There are those who feel chained to life by their own unrelenting doubts, and then there are those who doubt that such chains exist at all. The first group of people are held hopeless captives of vague fears that they may lose something of value should they strive for freedom and fail, while the second group know that the only antidote to such clinging doubts is through conscious deeds!
The final Key Lesson in our study is a summary of not only all that serves to awaken the Best in us, but that describes the one action that leads us to its Permanent and Impenetrable Shelter: If we would but dare to attempt those things that frighten us sand persist upon this course for only a short while, we would soon discover that our efforts themselves have cleansed and cured us of our fear.

Check back tomorrow for Guy’s final installment in the five part series on leadership.
