A New Wish for Self-Understanding

posted by Guy Finley

QUESTION

I am tired of suffering uselessly, and want to make a new wish for greater self-understanding. Are there any practical steps I can take to strengthen my wish?

ANSWER

It may not seem so at the time of a trouble, but the truth is, the only thing any of us suffer from (psychologically) is what we have yet to learn about the truth of our lives and ourselves. This is great news for those with ears to hear.

We can learn. We can be self-discovering. We can dare the darkness we fear by knowing that even in the worst hours there is always Light just waiting to reveal to us the error of our perception. When we change the way we see life, life suddenly changes itself into the way we experience it — and there’s no end to this bright and upward spiral of self-renewal.

Make each day a dedicated choice to choose in favor of the Light. Work with principles that work to show you what is the truth of your life, instead of clinging to futile hopes that provide only their promise of bringing you a better life. The truth (about yourself) you’ll come to embrace is the true life your heart has been longing for.

The Interior Action that Builds Character
The character of goodness, of compassion and kindness that we would like to reflect and express before our friends (and enemies), requires that we place “its” life before our own. And yet, when we agree to this interior action of self-sacrifice, not only is our life returned to us, but we find t

Enter a World Where Goodness is Its Own Reward
Once we see it's impossible to please ourselves at the expense of the pain of someone else, we are released from the cycle of seeking a false comfort whose conflict compromises "winners" and "losers" alike. Only then are we free to enter a new world – above the opposites -- where goodness is its o
