Be True to Your Wish to Be New

posted by Guy Finley

There come times in our lives when our wish to be new, coupled with our interior work to realize this wish, produces certain “effects” that can be most trying; in fact, times such as these are a kind of trial. What happens is that the spiritual changes occurring within us — and their new values — outrun the existing physical conditions and relationships that helped give rise to these changes in us.

Be patient, be kind, and remain intent upon being true to yourself with regards to your growing spiritual wish to be whole and free. Things must and will come to a “head,” and there will be a change; it’s inescapable. Don’t fear, or at least, don’t allow that negative state to make you act against your own best interests. When relationships pass, as most must, it doesn’t mean that the love that caused them to appear must disappear. A new form always rises when an old one passes… watch for it.

Reject Soul-Destructive Energies
There are many un-illumined and downward trending parts in all of us that not only seek out their unconscious counterparts (in others) but that are secretly strengthened in the conflicted company of such dark and negative energies.

Stop Cooking Your Own Goose!
Any time you sit, think about, and "stew" over what someone did to you, or simmer in anger about some past event, the real reason for your pain is because you're cooking your own goose!
