Lessons in Leaving Behind the Rushed Life

posted by Guy Finley

Part I:

Being anxious, always in a rush and racing after whatever it is we’ve imagined will help us to be more at peace with ourselves, is like running to catch the shadow of a passing cloud on a hot summer’s day so that we get to stand in a cool spot!

Part II:

Rushing through our lives does not produce more time, or do one thing to increase productivity. To the contrary, rushing limits all possibilities by restricting our powers of higher choice — even as it crushes our unique opportunity to discover and realize the Timeless Life that is our birthright.

    I am so grateful for Heaven’s Absolute Pure intent for me and all of us. Everything here is relative

    and far from the wondrous realm of the Absolute. It is the endless durability of God that allows us the

    incredible wonder of all that is deathless and vast.

    I want to leave the made rush behind but, for some reason God seems to be toying with me.
    He gives me the ability and strength to write two books that are now published and everyone who has read them thinks they are great and I should be rich off of them. So, why am I struggling so hard, why have I been taken to the edge of a cliff and just left to dangle there?
    Why would God give me the talent to do this and then nothing comes of it?
    I do not have the finances to have copies of my books made so I can not do book signings.
    People are asking for the books, especially the Children’s Series but I do not have the money to get where I need to be.
    I know that every thing is in Gods time (when he is ready) but I have been waiting and trying for so long (5 years).
    I do not want to give up I worked for so long and so hard on these books but, I need someone or something to happen to give me the feeling that all my hard work is at some point going to benifit me and the people I have written the books for.
    I am writing today for some feedback, do you think I should keep on trucking or just pack it up and call it a day?
    I think blogging is a great way to get an honest opinion.
    Thanks
    MJ

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

(Video) There's No Sense of Self in a Right Action
Guy Finley explains that true goodness is not measured by actions which validate your image of being good. What is truly good has no self-reference -- it comes from pure action, which is a natural outcome of being present. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apyGb3NXhnQ[/youtube]

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

Step Into the Unknown
When, at times, the spiritual aspirant feels as though there's no reason to go on...because he can no longer believe in an imagined good somewhere ahead of him, he comes to what seems a complete dead end. And yet, it is exactly in this place that he must step through himself, and persist in the work
