Letting Go with Guy Finley

(Audio) The Seeker, The Search, The Sacred

posted by Guy Finley

Where does our longing for someone or something to love originate? Is it not with the awakening of an internal force urging us to explore and experience the deepest part of ourselves? When we say — or feel toward another — “You complete me,” what we’re really saying is something like “Through you I’ve realized parts of myself I wouldn’t have known even existed; you have helped introduce me to who I really am.” In the following short dialog, Guy Finley and Dr. Ellen Dickstein explore this idea further as they discuss what we’re truly seeking in our relationships and why.

The Sacred: Journey to the Greatness Within

posted by Guy Finley

In spite of the many differences that seem to exist between peoples the world over—regardless of culture, tradition, environment, or heredity—there is but one seeker, one search, and one sacred object of our desire.

The celestial source of this sacred being doesn’t just live within us; we are, in fact, one with it. Our true self is as much a part of its everlasting light as the rays of the setting sun are one with the ocean upon which they dance in delight.

All scripture, from the East to the West, confirms this timeless truth: We need only ask, and it shall be given.

I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall
find me.

—Proverbs, Old Testament (c. 1000–700 BCE)

There is a divine sense higher than human sense, that
enables those of pure heart to see God.

—Origen (185-254, Egypt)

Whoever knows himself knows God.
—Muhammad (c. 570/71–672, Mecca, Saudi Arabia)

Nothing in all creation is so like God as stillness.
—Meister Eckhart (1260–c. 1327, Thuringia)

When your presence flooded me with its light I hoped that
within it I might find Ultimate Reality at its most tangible. But
now that I have in fact laid hold on you, you who are utter
consistency, and feel myself borne by you I realize that my deepest
hidden desire was not to possess you, but to be possessed.

—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881–1955, France)

The Search: Journey to the Greatness Within

posted by Guy Finley

What hope is there of finding in the world situated around us something that can answer our longing to be whole, to be one with life, when this need itself comes into us from a world above us? Small wonder we search in vain! It is a divine discontent that drives us in our search for someone or something that might grant our restless heart the peace it seeks.

None are immune to the disconcerting touch of this celestial longing. Its invisible presence permeates our being and—under certain circumstances—provides a glimpse of what awaits us, just above our present nature.

Following are a few of the discoveries of individuals who, just like you, set out to find new, true answers that could stand up to the test of passing time with its ever-changing conditions. Welcome these inward and uplifting thoughts as if they were your own, for in one sense…they are. Take them into your heart; search out their hidden meaning. Answer their clarion call. If you will, you can’t help but rise into the world from which they have come.

Those whose minds are attracted to my invisible nature have
a great labor to encounter, because an invisible path is difficult
to be found by corporeal beings.

—Bhagavad Gita (500–200 BCE, India)

The kingdom of Heaven is within you, and whosoever
knoweth himself shall find it.

—Gospel of Thomas (60–140, Egypt)

If you walk toward Him, He comes to you running.
—Muhammad (c. 570-632, Mecca, Saudi Arabia)

This place where you are right now God circled on a map
for you.

—Hafez (1315–1390, Persia)

If a man would find the Key of Knowledge, let him find
himself.

—James Allen (1864–1912, England)

The Seeker: Journey to the Greatness Within

posted by Guy Finley

The need for whatever it may be that we’re drawn to is the yet to be realized presence within us of that very thing to which we are drawn. This means that no matter how distant seems our guiding star, or how isolated we may feel in our journey towards its light, these higher truths we’re learning would have us know otherwise; we are not alone. Even more importantly, just as a small filing of iron must fly to the magnet that pulls upon it, so too must those who are drawn to the Divine eventually answer its call.

Following are just a few of some of the innermost thoughts and feelings of inspired seekers who have gone before you. Some names you may know; others you will be glad to meet!

By the very thing you seek.
To know when to stop
To know when you can get no further
By your own action,
This is the right beginning!

—Lao Tzu (ca. 570–490 BCE, China)

God made man so that He should seek the Lord.
—Acts, New Testament (55–95)

This thing we tell of can never be found by seeking, yet
only seekers find it.

—Abu Yazid Al-Bistami (804–874, Bastam, Iran)

Who seeks, and will not take when once ‘tis offered, shall
never find it more.

—William Shakespeare (1564–1616, England)

Happiness does not come into being when you seek it; it is a
byproduct; it comes into being when there is goodness, when
there is love, when there is no ambition, when the mind is
quietly seeking out what is true.

—J. Krishnamurti (1895–1986, India)

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.
