Letting Go with Guy Finley

Question: The sleeping nature rules my life most of the time. If I keep working to come awake in small moments, will there be a full awakening for me at some later time?

Answer: Thinking, or hoping, that any destination we have in mind is going to be superior to where we’re presently standing, is exactly why we’re still standing in that same place where we have to hope that some tomorrow will be better. Before we can change our destination and arrive in that higher world we want, before we can ever start out in that new direction that leads to liberation, we must wake up to the steps we’re being given to take by a nature whose favorite direction is down. Victory over our own lower nature is now or never. It is only what you do right now that is the seed of change. Your conscious choice for real change in the present moment automatically cancels the need for a better you in a better future. All will be better for you now, which is the only time it really matters!
