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)

Discover Your Secret Role in the Greatest Story Ever Told

posted by Guy Finley

Can a collection of hundreds of thoughts — spread out across a vast expanse of space and time — spoken world-over by thousands of different voices –tell a single coher­ent story? The answer is an unqualified “Yes!” — but only when each of these thoughts is realized for what it is: the expressed reflection of the divine mind from which they radiate, not unlike the light from the sun which reveals itself in the glimmer of a thousand diamonds as they dance upon the sea.

Whenever, through our exploration of life, we come upon some “seed of fire” — some new thought or insight that awakens us to a part of ourselves unknown only a moment before — we realize that we are not alone. These sometimes shocking moments make two things clear at once:

First, someone “out there” — whose “footprints” we have stumbled upon — knows us better than we know ourselves, for they have awakened us to a truth about ourselves that we didn’t know a moment before. And, for having now been introduced to what amounts to a higher level of our own awareness, we also receive another gift beyond description: the realization that within us already lives a body of timeless wisdom that is more who we are than anything we could have ever imagined ourselves to be.

Faint as it may be, we perceive the presence of an immeasurable, if not divine life whose possibilities are somehow recog­nized as being the same as our own: one timeless Self divided into three parts — “The Seeker, the Search, the Sacred.” The new self-understanding for which we search is already a part of the seeker, as it’s always found there, within us, or not at all. And further, it is the Sacred itself that secretly initiates the search!

Regardless of when in time, or where on earth, a “seed of fire” — a truth bright with promise — appears, its effect is always the same. By its deft touch, “the sleeper awakens” and the meaning of our life takes on a whole new magnitude. The Spirit that called inspired seekers who have gone before us — that awakened their hearts, and quickened their minds — so that they might have “eyes to see, and ears to hear” — is the same spirit call­ing us. These individuals came to know, as will you, the truth that sets us free: There is but one seeker, one search, and one sacred intelligence awakening us with its call.

The Power of The Equinox: Release and Return

posted by Guy Finley

The autumnal equinox marks the beginning of nature’s quiet retreat, a return journey back into the great “storehouse of life” wherein she will rest for awhile before becoming active once again.

We see this same dynamic principle of outflow and inflow over and over again, operating on stages as small as quantum particles, all the way to the cosmic seasons of the sun itself. Think of it: we human beings breathe in and out, moment by moment receiving and then releasing vital air. Each day the ocean tides rise and fall, even as the moon moves through its monthly cycle of waxing and waning.

But here is the all-important key: These vital forces . . . that oversee and enforce life’s ceaseless expansion and contraction, that ensure its fullness becomes emptiness in order to fill it again . . . they have no conflict with one other. Far from it: they complement each other by secretly serving to complete one another. And this knowledge can be our power because – with such wisdom in hand – we can let go knowing that whatever we will release will be returned to us in a whole new form.

(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.
