Letting Go with Guy Finley


Reclaim Your Attention

posted by Guy Finley

Question: I have read in your works, with regards to various thoughts and feelings, that we should do the interior work of learning to look at “what is talking to us, and not where it is pointing.” But when I try to look at some painful thought, it forces me to look at what it wants me to see! Then I lose myself again… only to find myself distracted by this. Please help!

Answer: Ponder this truth until its power becomes your own: Nothing in the universe can force a person to place his or her attention where they don’t want it to be placed. Yes, your attention will be stolen from time to time, and more often than one would wish; but when your attention gets stolen, and you begin to suffer from identifying with some corresponding negative state, simply see the truth of your situation, reclaim your mind, and start over… and over and over. Eventually, as you come to realize the unattended mind breeds the very defeat it decries, a new need will be born in you to remain watchful of yourself wherever you are, and whatever you may be doing.

(Video) I am the Vine and Ye are the Branches
Guy Finley explains that it's a dangerous path to say we are one with God, because we go into imagination that we are divine.  "I am the vine, ye are the branches." The branch exists because of the vine.  We are one with the Divine in as much that we are an expression of the Divine. [youtube]ht

No Greater Gift
It is given to us to choose in which of the infinite worlds we will dwell, and there is no greater gift, nor power, granted to any creature under the sun. To not know one's choice, or worse, to have abdicated this right, is to turn your life over to forces that oppose the possibility of rebirth.
