Letting Go with Guy Finley

Unconscious suffering is a creation of incomplete perception; it is the inevitable painful outcome of having mistaken the partial for the whole.

***
Employing self-remembrance, strive to practice Presence; (this) one action is the path of spiritual purification, even as it serves to reveal all of God’s Kingdoms presently concealed within you.

Brooding, resenting, regretting… all are forms of unconscious suffering, and serve to strengthen the false notion that the negative state is a product of the condition, instead of a reflection of one’s consciousness.

To suffer consciously is to act in a whole new way where one chooses to be consciously passive to states that are (actively) blaming or judging; instead of being the instrument of these dark radiations, you bring the light of awareness into and upon them.

This new action of being quietly passive to painful thoughts and feelings is conscious suffering; through it one dies to the nature of the false active and is aligned by true action with a Living Light that changes whatever is brought into its healing wholeness.

If each of us gave one-tenth the amount of time and energy we pour uselessly into suffering over our own sufferings, and instead agreed to use these energies to quietly become aware of the secret sorrow of others, and our part in this, the world would find herself bathed in a new Light that would wash away all such useless and dark despair.

There is no hope in the dark I see... but only in the Light that reveals it to me. - Guy Finley
