The Nature that Rises Above Mediocrity

posted by Guy Finley

Where does this leader within us, the Best of us, dwell? This fearless nature has its home within the invisible ground of our being, yet this interior ground is not a static quality. It is more like a kind of invisible foundry — a spiritually timeless place where who we are to be is forever being forged between the make-up of our present understanding and the ever-unfolding nature of the present moment that this understanding encounters. It is the choices we make in these moments that decide our individual destiny and that determine whether we grow into the Best in us or not, for within each such moment one of two very distinct natures may appear in us and preside over us. Which brings us to a tale of two natures in one.

There exists one nature in us that knows itself only by what it has been. It defines what is possible for it to do in the present only by consulting what it has done in the past. This self is the essence of mediocrity. It always has multiple reasons why its best can never be good enough, so that by its logic there is but one conclusion and that is, “Why bother to try?” And then — there is another, higher nature within us that does not define itself by anything apart from its wish to explore and realize its own infinite possibilities. This nature is the Best in us; it is the leader within. Our task, if we would live without limits, is its awakening.

On Friday, I will pass along some additional lessons concerning what is required of us if we wish to awaken and gain our liberation from self-imposed limitations. (To be continued…)

Finding the Leader Within Us

posted by Guy Finley

What is the nature of the Best in us? Where is this fearless nature to be found? What purpose does it fulfill in our lives? Let’s answer these questions one by one to help us begin to realize this still secret and fearless part of ourselves.

First, the Best in us is that yet-to-be-awakened aspect of ourselves, of our higher consciousness, that doesn’t “think” about whether or not to act in the face of fear, but that knows, under any and all conditions, that it is impossible for it to fail. And because of this native knowing, our higher self lives without the usual limitations that fear always imposes.

Whoever we are, regardless of our respective circumstances, the Best in us . . . is our individual capacity to outgrow not just the limiting aspects of our own character, but to grow beyond even the best parts of ourselves already once transformed. In other words the Best in us is a secret part of us with an unlimited potential to transcend itself; a self-verifiable fact that, once seen, goes to prove the existence of infinite compassionate intelligence, call this greater consciousness what you will. With this in mind we arrive at our next question: Where does this leader within us, the Best of us, dwell? (To be continued…)

What Makes a True Leader

posted by Guy Finley

It is the true leaders — those individuals of this world who expand its boundaries — who reveal the secret routes to new and nobler realities. Such revolutionary discoveries are never the work of organizations. These groups always spring up in the wake of the walk of those who lead in order to capitalize upon their work. Those who seek power by such means are, by definition, little more than followers of the individuals who have found the power to discover. And generally speaking, such followers tend to be fearful because their powers are always borrowed. So then, what is that makes one person a true leader and another his dependent? The answer is not what you think!

It isn’t that these leaders in life don’t have the same fears as we do; that just is not the case. The way they prevail in fulfilling the promise of their chosen path, regardless of their field, is for one of two reasons: Either their love of pursuing their heart’s desire outweighs those fears they meet or, in the case of the greatest leaders, these peerless individuals have learned fear’s ruling secret and turned it to their favor, making them self-ruling. They are able to walk past the places where most of us see a path that ends.

Now what is vital for us to understand at this point is that in both cases — whether it is the love of something that draws a person through a territory otherwise prohibitive to others, or it is someone able, at will, to pass through life’s “impossibilities” — both types of leaders employ the same empowering principle. This is good news for us because it means that even if we haven’t yet come upon a real love of something for us to do with our lives, a love that “casts out our fears,” it is possible for us to learn to love the principles that lead us to this fearless nature. These spiritually empowering principles, that we will touch upon in the coming days, are the invisible backbone of a special spiritual character that lives latent in all of us. For now we will call this character… the Best in us. (To be continued…)

(Video) I am the Vine and Ye are the Branches
Guy Finley explains that it's a dangerous path to say we are one with God, because we go into imagination that we are divine.  "I am the vine, ye are the branches." The branch exists because of the vine.  We are one with the Divine in as much that we are an expression of the Divine. [youtube]ht

No Greater Gift
It is given to us to choose in which of the infinite worlds we will dwell, and there is no greater gift, nor power, granted to any creature under the sun. To not know one's choice, or worse, to have abdicated this right, is to turn your life over to forces that oppose the possibility of rebirth.
