Free Yourself by Seeing Yourself

posted by Guy Finley

No one can be free who refuses to see what actually lives within him. This is why Real self-healing begins with truthful self-seeing. There is no other order, no other way. Consciousness of any unwanted condition in us must precede its correction, just as the rising sun dismisses the fear hiding in the darkness of night. This is why we must learn that anything in us that does not want us to see the truth about our actual unenlightened condition is itself a part of what is punishing us. We can learn to do much better!

If we would heal the hidden hurt in us then we must learn that the initial bitterness of self-truthfulness is the front-runner of our ultimate spiritual betterment. Our work is to concede to the bright prescription of higher self-honesty regardless of how it “tastes” to us in those moments when we see ourselves as we are.

Choose in favor of your freedom. Choose to see!

    I read your posts almost every day and always enjoy what you have to say. This one is too wordy and hard to follow. Can you make it simpler?

    Look in the mirror ( of your soul). When we honestly look at our own personal demons, that is the first step to personal freedom. That ability to “look” is the separation from the false self. Observe, don’t resist what we see or feel. In the stillness of “observer” we see the false self and realize we do not have to identify with it. Our consciousness is who we are if we learn to embrace it. The old self will fall away and so its’ hold on our life.

The Development of True Peace
  It is a distinct stage in the development of the aspirant when -- rather than being easily distracted by some imagined consolation for his pain, or by concluding who is to blame for it -- his first and real preference in the moment is to increase his consciousness of his condition, and not

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
