Getting Healthy Again

posted by Guy Finley

Question: If you are faced with unpleasant surroundings caused by unseen forces, how do you get healthy again and get past this?

Answer: There is only one obstacle that any of us ever face, regardless of how unpleasant or compromised our condition may be. This is actually good news once we discover that it’s possible for us to transcend whatever it may be that troubles us. What is this one obstacle that all of us face that is the root of whatever seems to be wrecking our lives? What we have yet to learn about ourselves.

There is nothing that any of us have to put up with in our life that doesn’t have its root within our own lack of understanding that our mind belongs to us. Nothing may enter it and remain without our permission. Nothing may punish us without a certain unconscious consent on our part to be a participant in that unfolding process.

This is what’s so beautiful about discovering the truth of ourselves.In it we find that all that we are missing, is the understanding that allows us to act in a new way towards the world around us, because at last we now see the world in a new way — through new eyes.

Diet and Spiritual Growth

posted by Guy Finley

Eating a healthy diet and doing proper exercise is essential for allowing maximum possibility inwardly. As you really begin to work upon yourself, you begin to contact (and be contacted by) Higher energy. As these awakened energies infuse you, the body is tested. It needs to be prepared, to be strong. All this becomes clearer as you proceed on the Path.

Let God Shape You

Question: Do you have any words of wisdom that may help in weight loss?

Answer: Work at developing your love for God. Why does that have anything to do with losing weight? Because when you get past the immature place where you think worship is looking at something on a wall, thinking about something outside of yourself, and then doing exactly the opposite when you leave your place of worship — when you understand that worship is an interior, moment-to-moment relationship, and that it can become deeper and deeper, more alive, more joyful, more forthright, more safety-giving, and more strengthening — then you want more quiet, more love, more unity, more peace. You become devoted to whatever it takes to make your body, mind, and heart more receptive to the spirit that you love. At that point you don’t want to sit with a body that’s uncomfortable to you — not because the body is uncomfortable, or because you think about yourself as having an unpleasant body, but because the body itself is interfering with your ability to deepen your relationship with the Divine. Then you stop eating foods that upset you, because you don’t want that. And when you go to bed at night, you don’t want a disturbed sleep because the Work, your spiritual life, goes forward. At a certain point in your spiritual work, you never leave school. You get natural rests, but you don’t leave school. So your love of God allows the God who has awakened this in you to begin to shape you according to His need to reveal Himself to you.

The Development of True Peace
  It is a distinct stage in the development of the aspirant when -- rather than being easily distracted by some imagined consolation for his pain, or by concluding who is to blame for it -- his first and real preference in the moment is to increase his consciousness of his condition, and not

The Interior Action that Builds Character
The character of goodness, of compassion and kindness that we would like to reflect and express before our friends (and enemies), requires that we place “its” life before our own. And yet, when we agree to this interior action of self-sacrifice, not only is our life returned to us, but we find t

Enter a World Where Goodness is Its Own Reward
Once we see it's impossible to please ourselves at the expense of the pain of someone else, we are released from the cycle of seeking a false comfort whose conflict compromises "winners" and "losers" alike. Only then are we free to enter a new world – above the opposites -- where goodness is its o

Step Into the Unknown
When, at times, the spiritual aspirant feels as though there's no reason to go on...because he can no longer believe in an imagined good somewhere ahead of him, he comes to what seems a complete dead end.
