Letting Go with Guy Finley

Any agitation in the soul that is unattended by the conscious light of awareness is a dark heat, one that is unable to change anything about itself except for what it blames for its burning state.

***


Real spiritual responsibility begins with our conscious agreement to stand — in full self-awareness — between the force of any negative reaction and those still-in-the-dark parts of us that have given it birth… and that continue to keep it alive.

***

Only in our awareness of a weakness — by our ability to sense the presence of any negative, or otherwise self-denigrating thought or feeling — is found the strength we need to die to this lower level of self that, otherwise… lives to ensure that we accept its limitations as being our own.
