Finding the Leader Within Us

posted by Guy Finley

What is the nature of the Best in us? Where is this fearless nature to be found? What purpose does it fulfill in our lives? Let’s answer these questions one by one to help us begin to realize this still secret and fearless part of ourselves.

First, the Best in us is that yet-to-be-awakened aspect of ourselves, of our higher consciousness, that doesn’t “think” about whether or not to act in the face of fear, but that knows, under any and all conditions, that it is impossible for it to fail. And because of this native knowing, our higher self lives without the usual limitations that fear always imposes.

Whoever we are, regardless of our respective circumstances, the Best in us . . . is our individual capacity to outgrow not just the limiting aspects of our own character, but to grow beyond even the best parts of ourselves already once transformed. In other words the Best in us is a secret part of us with an unlimited potential to transcend itself; a self-verifiable fact that, once seen, goes to prove the existence of infinite compassionate intelligence, call this greater consciousness what you will. With this in mind we arrive at our next question: Where does this leader within us, the Best of us, dwell? (To be continued…)

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
