    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

Guy Finley explains that we always give our attention to what we value most. You can't "look" for the path to the Divine. The path is right here, right now. Our work is to just attend and listen for the Divine moment to moment and there's no moment you can't be attending to the Divine. That's the tr
