Letting Go with Guy Finley

So many people want to know, “What can I do for someone who is troubled, who comes to me for answers, or a way out of their pain?” And then, though rarely added to their question, what they don’t state is… “But I am barely out of the shadows of life myself.”

The truth is that what troubles us most about the pain, doubt, or fear of others who come to us isn’t their situation, but that it awakens in us the realization of our own compromised condition.

And this is why, in the end, the most kind thing we can do for others is to search out, within ourselves, the one true source of kindness, of understanding and compassion, and then be that for one and all.
