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…)

No person is good or bad in and of himself, any more than a trumpet is good or bad for the music sounded out of its horn. It is the “player,” the musician behind the mouthpiece who determines these qualities by his selection of song and the manner of performance. The same principle holds true

Reject Soul-Destructive Energies
There are many un-illumined and downward trending parts in all of us that not only seek out their unconscious counterparts (in others) but that are secretly strengthened in the conflicted company of such dark and negative energies.
