The Sacred: Journey to the Greatness Within

posted by Guy Finley

In spite of the many differences that seem to exist between peoples the world over—regardless of culture, tradition, environment, or heredity—there is but one seeker, one search, and one sacred object of our desire.

The celestial source of this sacred being doesn’t just live within us; we are, in fact, one with it. Our true self is as much a part of its everlasting light as the rays of the setting sun are one with the ocean upon which they dance in delight.

All scripture, from the East to the West, confirms this timeless truth: We need only ask, and it shall be given.

I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall
find me.

—Proverbs, Old Testament (c. 1000–700 BCE)

There is a divine sense higher than human sense, that
enables those of pure heart to see God.

—Origen (185-254, Egypt)

Whoever knows himself knows God.
—Muhammad (c. 570/71–672, Mecca, Saudi Arabia)

Nothing in all creation is so like God as stillness.
—Meister Eckhart (1260–c. 1327, Thuringia)

When your presence flooded me with its light I hoped that
within it I might find Ultimate Reality at its most tangible. But
now that I have in fact laid hold on you, you who are utter
consistency, and feel myself borne by you I realize that my deepest
hidden desire was not to possess you, but to be possessed.

—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881–1955, France)

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
