Letting Go with Guy Finley


The Beginning of Peace

posted by Guy Finley

Being at peace, and learning to live with quiet confidence — even as the world spins wildly around us — begins as we realize within us the presence and power of an interior stillness that neither needs, nor searches for, anything outside of itself in order to quietly know itself.

    See Guy’s blog entitled The Power of The Equinox , Release and Return as one example of how he invokes nature in harmony with our true spirit. Quit “paddling” so fast and just “float” until life’s waters eventually calm down. “Give too much and try too hard” are acts of resistance to life’s circumstances . You are trying to steer Life your way. Life charts its’ own course. If you find yourself doing anything “too hard or with much effort” you are in opposition to what is, be still, and aware, and you will find ….”an interior stillness that neither needs, nor searches for, anything outside of itself in order to quietly know itself.”
