Short Commentary on Conscious Suffering

posted by Guy Finley

Brooding, resenting, regretting… all are forms of unconscious suffering, and serve to strengthen the false notion that the negative state is a product of the condition, instead of a reflection of one’s consciousness.

To suffer consciously is to act in a whole new way where one chooses to be consciously passive to states that are (actively) blaming or judging; instead of being the instrument of these dark radiations, you bring the light of awareness into and upon them.

This new action of being quietly passive to painful thoughts and feelings is conscious suffering; through it one dies to the nature of the false active and is aligned by true action with a Living Light that changes whatever is brought into its healing wholeness.

    It astounded me to learn that there is no such thing as … stress. Stress is a word we give to an imagined state. Yes, this state can create all sorts of powerful hormones, but first we have to allow our conscious mind to choose that response to the stimuli.

    So I’ve started conscious choosing of what to let make me feel what way. Also, being non-resistant to things that used to make me feel… insulted, stressed. If one puts their mind to it, they can make all kinds of changes to their life.

Living in the Light of True Self
What we must learn to ask ourselves, not once or twice daily, but a hundred times and every time it strikes us to remember ourselves, is this question: Where is my attention right now, and what is my experience of the moment as a result of its placement?

The Music of the Mind
The music of the mind -- its harmony, or not, is expressed by the order of its thoughts through which it is instrumented. Confusion is dissonance; clarity is flow.
