Letting Go with Guy Finley

Question: I am wondering if all spiritual teachings, especially concerning being present and realizing expansion and contraction, apply to my current situation. My spouse of many years has left me, and I am now isolated and surrounded by memories. Can anyone say that this (perceived) agony is subject to the same laws as you teach?

Answer: All conditions in our life, regardless of the sorrow or suffering they bring, have the potential to liberate us from who and what we have been up until that time of trial. God, the Divine, is not trying to take something from us when we lose what we love or depend upon; in truth, all “losses” are a kind of “invitation” to gain, in the only way possible, the realization of another order of ourselves that is less dependent on personal relationships (whatever their nature) because it is more firmly grounded in Reality… the only world where we can hope to find the lasting freedom of everlasting Love.
