    I am sensitive to this audio post because a member of my family is in serious ”pain” pong with obsessive thinking brought on by or intenisified by anxiety. I am wondering if just having the insight into the dynamics as presented is sufficient to ”let go”?

    Hello,

    My name is Kate and I work with Guy Finley to manage his blog. Your question reminds me of a line in Guy’s book, “The Secret of Letting Go” — “Letting go is the natural release that always follows the realization that holding on hurts.” Although “letting go” isn’t ultimately an intellectual process, we can use the intellect to begin to understand the dynamics as you describe, and start the process of separating from the mind that up to now has had us completely in its grasp. The clearer one begins to truly see that I am the one that hurts myself by holding onto pain (fear, anxiety, resentment, anger, etc.), then the more effortless dropping it becomes.

    If you are not already on Guy’s weekly Key Lesson email list, you may enjoy receiving his newsletter to your inbox each week as it always contains free helpful insights, plus you’ll also receive a few free downloads that you could share with your family as well. You’ll find more information at our main site guyfinley.org.

    Best wishes,
    Kate

Let Love Teach You About a Greater Love
In its essence, every relationship in life between you and another man or woman is a reflection of the one relationship that produces it.

(Video) Spiritual Toughness Starts Here
Guy Finley explains that there is a nature inside of us that wants nothing to do with spiritual work and inner transformation. We must meet this part of ourself that has no interest in doing what is right and good, and work to develop our will to be present in spite of the costs. [youtube]http://
