Letting Go with Guy Finley

Letting Go with Guy Finley

The Secret of Living Thought-Free (Part 2)

Awakening to our own true nature is a process of letting go. This point is a significant one. We don’t set out for what is limitless. Instead we quietly detect and reject those aspects of ourselves whose presence prevents us from enjoying the unrestrained life. As we let go of these invisible anchors, we find ourselves effortlessly rising towards the silent and ever-expansive nature of a free mind.

But again, we mustn’t try and imagine what our lives would be like living from this new nature. As our own experiences have shown us many times over, the pictures we create in our minds never live up to our expectations.
What we want is that freedom, those strengths that are based in reality. And to achieve these reality-based powers, we must seek them there: within what is real.

And yet, over the years of teaching these principles of self-liberation, I’ve learned that the subject of reality is not exactly a welcome one. It seems most of us have little interest in facing what feels like the harsh light of our individual existence. It’s not difficult to understand why.

Our lives seem to flicker, like a bulb that may or may not light up the next instant. One moment we shine, the next moment what was once a glow is barely a flickering possibility. In that sometimes fading light, we see all too much about ourselves that seems shallow or loveless. We’re frightened that life itself may be too bleak and cruel to withstand. And soon, the fear of what we see as being the reality of life, becomes the basis of our reality.

This fear-filled mindset leaves us but little hope. We’re reduced to looking for, and finding, the happiness we long for only in our hopes and dreams. And so it goes that our lives become based in tomorrow. How else can it be for us? For in the way we look at what we think is reality, today just can’t be all there is!

But the day to day existence we all find so hard to face without our dreams of escape is not real life. We only think it’s real. And the only reason for this erroneous experience of reality is because we’re still experiencing the whole of our lives in thought.

We are not intended to think our way through this life of ours. The overwhelming evidence of this truth is all around us, only we’ve lost the innate ability to see it.
