The Three Keys to Complete Self-Command (Part 1)

posted by Guy Finley

What is the value of being in command of our own life? Is it because people will acknowledge us as being some kind of strong, right, true person? Is there value in people looking at us and saying flattering things? Or, is the value of being in command of our own life simply that we’re in command of our own life? That when we’re home, all kinds of wolves can come to the door and knock, blow, and pound, and they don’t knock the house down because we live in something that by its very presence prohibits us from being punished by certain thoughts and feelings.

When we’re in command of ourselves, we don’t say cruel things to other human beings. When we’re in command of ourselves, we’re never in a hurry. When we’re in command of ourselves, fear can’t find a home inside of us. But we want to be royalty. We want to snap our fingers, to be in charge of things, because we equate the idea of being in command of the world around us as the same thing as being in command of ourselves, and it clearly is not.

Imagine a man who is in command of himself to the point where he is not punished by ambition, or fear of not succeeding according to the values of his social system. Imagine a woman who is in command of herself to the extent that she can’t fall into a depression. That is command.

How nice would it be if wherever you went, under any circumstances, regardless of what was taking place, you were at ease? Because where you have confidence, you have someone who is at ease with himself, and where you have someone who has command, you have a person who is no longer trying to do something to make the world the way she wants it. He lives in a world in which everything he wants is already there. She doesn’t have to try to change things. Interiorly he is awake in himself, and because of that, he is in command of the things that steal command from him.

Having confidence in a moment of trial, of being in command when there is conflict, are states natural to any man and any woman who is in right relationship with the Truth itself.

I'm sure that we can all agree that no intelligent, conscious man or woman would ever intentionally hurt him or herself. No one would choose to ache. Yet the fact remains that all of us do hurt ourselves every day with bursts of anger or fits of depression or anxiety. There can be no doubt, beginnin

Find New Happiness in Self-Wholeness
Before we can know a happiness beyond the reach of conflict or sorrow, we must ourselves be whole; for any happiness apart from self-wholeness is only half a happiness and must, in time, prove itself so.

Take the First Step to Wholeness
We go through our lives in a continual dance of being filled with something that needs an answer, and then going out and finding that answer… only to find out that our answer wasn’t quite the answer. Then, as we bring to ourselves whatever we thought we needed, it changes. Or, as we actually see

The Clarity of Wholeness
Question: I know I have a confused and divided mind, so how can I get it into self-wholeness? Answer: Just as an electric fan cannot sort papers on a desk, giving them order, neither can the whirling mind produce Peace. To see the truth of this causes a kind of “self-disconnect,” and at once
