A New Consciousness for the Holidays

posted by Guy Finley

If you’re going to become a different kind of human being, you need to become aware of certain aspects of human consciousness. These conditions become more easily recognizable in the frantic energy of the holiday season…

There is a monster at large. It is in our body. This monster doesn’t care about anything other than what it needs in order to feel about itself what it has named as being primary for that moment.

No one wants to suffer the fact that the world they see is what it is because of the way they are. Why? Because then we have to meet this thing that doesn’t see, but just wants. We have to meet this thing that doesn’t consider anything outside of itself other than what is necessary to support whatever it is feeling about itself in the moment.

To be blinded means to be out of relationship with what’s around you. And the point of spirit, as opposed to the movement of the world, is that spirit (what is true) is always in relationship with what is around it. It’s never not conscious of its relationship to life. So gradually a human being begins to recognize that it’s mandatory to become still. Without stillness there is no hope for transformation.

True spirituality begins with us becoming conscious of ourselves in the world, as we are, and as the world is. Then because of that consciousness, change becomes necessary. It’s not a question anymore of us wanting to change; we are staggered by the fact of what we are.

Be different this year by being different now. Try to see past the movement of your own mind. The only way to see past the movement that is generated by desire and the mind is for there to be something still in you. If there is nothing still in you, then you are part of all of that movement.

This is what the holidays are about, as far as I’m concerned: Where is it possible for me to step out of the worldly movement and into the stillness of spirit that can be a part of the world but is not in it in the way that I am when I am part of that blind movement to satisfy myself?

It’s not easy to change one’s psychology, but I can assure you, if you don’t do that work, you will be part of a blind force that is consumed by a blind force and that ends in a blind force.

On the other hand, this time of the year, do what you can, wherever you can, and suffer what you must consciously. Cease to be a part of what is destroying this earth and the soul inside of you, and become part of the creation of a new world that begins within you and is finally expressed in a Light that dawns and is born upon the earth.

Stop Enabling and Take Possession of Your Self
The person who enables another human being believes the only choice they have is to somehow keep that person in line, save that person from themselves -- not for the good of the other human being but because the enabler, without knowing it, believes that without the other person in their life, they
