Letting Go with Guy Finley

Letting Go with Guy Finley

Accomplishments that Stand the Test of Time

Achievements in and of themselves change little in us…they amount to little more than a merit badge that tarnishes in time; rather it is the suffering we consciously endure in the name of love that helps to perfect and transform our nature into something newer and truer; it is not what we acquire, but what we give (up) that actually enriches us.

    So Guy, should I give up on love for love? Because that’s all that’s left for me? What can I learn from that? To love myself or God or humanity? And, will that satisfy? Because a well-lived life is one where we’ve accomplished something, right? And feel the satisfaction of our accomplishments. So, if I suffer losing love out of love… but for who? Which will be of greater value? Losing love for someone else’s benefit? I’m not even sure about what I’m saying.

      Hi Dalya,

      My name is Kate and I work with Guy Finley to manage this blog. In this short writing he’s talking about two different pursuits in life — our outer pursuits, such as possessions and relationships, and our inner pursuits, such as self-understanding and contentment. In our exterior pursuits we’re always looking to acquire something to “add” to ourselves to make us feel happy, whole, complete. But you’ve probably noticed that self is never truly satisfied — it may find temporary peace but eventually we feel the push to keep looking for more. This is where a person might discover that what they really need is to understand why it is that they are never satisfied and always in the pursuit of something. As one begins this inner journey of self-discovery, they eventually come to seek a different type of love — one that isn’t found through acquiring things but through letting go of that part of us that convinces us we need something outside of us to make us happy. As Guy says in his book, “The Secret of Letting Go” — Happiness is letting go of your ideas about happiness!

      Kate
