Nothing Can Stop You From Starting Over

posted by Guy Finley

We can be new now, if we’re first fed up inwardly with our old, false nature; and secondly if we’re willing to really let go of this nature as we understand what that means. That’s what our higher studies are for: to grow in greater and greater understanding that leads up to a whole new and now nature.

In short, we need to wake up. You can do it right now. Just be quietly aware of yourself — without thinking about it. This kind of awareness suspends habitual, self-referencing thought, and in that momentary absence of the mechanical thought nature, we touch another life: one whose nature is the same as “starting over.”

The truth is that nothing in life can stop you from starting your life all over, at anytime, because the true fabric of life is a cosmic weave of ceaseless beginnings. That’s right. Your power for starting over is backed up by Reality itself, which will place its supreme strength on the side of whoever chooses it over self-ruinous states. All that is needed to put the power of this ever-renewing truth to work in your life is for you to consciously agree to view any unwanted or unhappy moment not as some unavoidable ending, but as the temporary and passing condition that it really is.

    The concept of starting over…I can’t seem to consider it unless, at the same time, I agree to be haunted by a past from which I am starting over.

    The “haunting” only comes from resisting the those unwanted thoughts. Just be the “observer” when those unwanted moments come into thought.. Don’t judge them, or try to control them,..they will pass if we don’t get caught up in them. It is an Un-merry go-round that leads to nowhere when we get on that ride hoping it will lead to a “better” outcome than what it did originally. Each “ride” is teaching us a lesson if we are open and willing to learn from it..

Learning to Discern
Question: What are the first steps in learning to discern the truth? Answer: One of the things that makes music good for us is our effortless relationship with its harmony and balance, with its rhythm and composition. We don't have to be experts to discern these elements because they naturally re

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.
