Letting Go with Guy Finley


Go From Storms to Sunny Skies

posted by Guy Finley

Perhaps a man is worried about the future. He believes that in order to feel secure, he must acquire a certain amount of money. Any time he feels thwarted in his efforts to achieve his aim, he finds himself in a storm of anger and despair. But he has been working with these ideas, so he decides to do something different about his pain. When the worry thoughts come, instead of coming up with some new scheme to protect himself, or ranting against an unfair world, he decides to admit that he doesn’t know what to do, and instead, to ask for Higher help. As that light shines on the storm, he begins to realize that he had been putting himself through unnecessary torment. He sees that his fear made demands that practicality did not require. He sees that his desperation made him do foolish things with his money, but that more intelligent decisions were possible. By having the courage to see that everything he believed about himself was mistaken, a new, higher view is possible for him.

Stop fighting the storm. Instead, seek to understand it. When you begin to doubt everything you believe about your suffering, you will see that you never had to remain in the path of those destructive storms at all.
