Letting Go with Guy Finley

Guy Finley explains in this short talk how the mind that opens up to the soul that is trying to express itself reflects a radiance from which everything in the universe benefits.

Question: Is true spiritual love just “sugar coating,” or is it something powerful and extremely important?

Answer: The whole reason for this Work we are doing, and for the Great Work on this planet of which our present body of work is a reflection, is precisely so that each of us can realize and better express the timeless nature of Real Love.

With this in mind, none are perfect in being this expressed radiance. What we “are” — if you will — is a “work in progress,” which means each of us, accordingly, is somewhere on this line of greater being, doing and being (individually) what our present level of awareness makes possible.

So even though you haven’t mentioned this… don’t be too hard on yourself if and when you miss the mark; it’s necessary that we see (time and time again) that we are and have nothing like we’ve imagined we do when it comes to this Divine Love.

All “sugar coatings” must be dissolved by the living water of Truth, by the action of its Light upon and within us. As this takes place, and we see that “no one is good, save the Father,” then — little by little — that ineffable Love for which we long makes itself known. And when the light from this Sun of all suns pierces the human heart, one knows, without taking thought, this love is a gift; it is mine only to the extent that I am Its.

The study of physics — of the laws that govern relationships — reveals some very telling spiritual truths, if one has “eyes” to see.

For instance…every mass in the universe pulls on every other mass, and the strength of that pull is affected by distance. The greater the mass, the greater its pull. The greater the distance, the less its pull. Science is unable to explain exactly why this happens; that is, why every object in the universe pulls on every other object. But, the following tells of a truth that no science can see…

The unknown reason why every created object in the universe pulls upon the body of all others is due to the “gravity” of love; the divine force that first creates forms, divides them (in this reality) and that then “seeks” to reconcile this “difference” by drawing them back together again. Albert Einstein intuited this truth when wrote: “The central urge of every atom is to return to its source.”

Letting go — in every sense of our possible relationship to that action — means giving, surrendering oneself over to what draws oneself to it…And this is why we must work, unceasingly, to choose what is right, bright, and true. (This) choosing (to live in) the light (of love) is the only way to ever realize that it has already chosen you.

What is that first, faint intuition of something Greater than ourselves, other than the Herald of the Heart quietly announcing the existence of a whole new level of being above us — and asking us — at the same time, if we will prepare ourselves to receive it.

***

Just as tumbling leaves in the wind makes the wind visible, so does the need of someone — that stirs the heart of another to answer it — reveal the presence of a Love greater than either person, yet that lives “as one” within both.

Real Love does not embrace what is unkind, cruel, and without conscience in human beings; yet it allows for it . . . knowing that all things dark and destructive must one day pay — by an act of Love — for their thoughtless expression.
