Letting Go with Guy Finley

Let Truth Make You Unstoppable!

posted by Guy Finley

Be encouraged by this truth and then do the inner work to realize the freedom it holds for you: Life itself never stands in our way. It never intends to hold us down. If something is seen by us as restricting our way, then, instead of backing away in resentment from what amounts to a vision of life provided for us by our own thickened thoughts about what we cannot be, let us turn our attention to the parts of us that habitually believe in such barriers and learn to walk through these false notions as we do through late afternoon shadows.

Start Taking Conscious Pauses

posted by Guy Finley

Make it your personal aim to take as many (small) conscious pauses each day as you can remind yourself to do. These moments of reordering your priorities need not (should not!) be grand acts. Merely stop the parading thoughts and feelings for a short spell and recall that were it not for the existence of an interior changeless ground there would be nothing moving anywhere.

By remembering what is changeless, timeless — in becoming aware of this feature within you through your awareness of it — you touch it and it you. Give no thought as to the efficacy of this action, for the self that pauses in this way is the front-runner of the Intelligence it calls to. And though the changeless is timeless, true transformation requires a passage. Be patient. Be persistent.

In some time you will see that your actions of taking conscious pauses to remember yourself and God are the seeds of a special kind of vine that produces a unique fruit. Gradually you will cease to be “you” and realize that who you really are has always been right within you, and that more than this you could not wish to be.

Reclaim Your Attention

posted by Guy Finley

Question: I have read in your works, with regards to various thoughts and feelings, that we should do the interior work of learning to look at “what is talking to us, and not where it is pointing.” But when I try to look at some painful thought, it forces me to look at what it wants me to see! Then I lose myself again… only to find myself distracted by this. Please help!

Answer: Ponder this truth until its power becomes your own: Nothing in the universe can force a person to place his or her attention where they don’t want it to be placed. Yes, your attention will be stolen from time to time, and more often than one would wish; but when your attention gets stolen, and you begin to suffer from identifying with some corresponding negative state, simply see the truth of your situation, reclaim your mind, and start over… and over and over. Eventually, as you come to realize the unattended mind breeds the very defeat it decries, a new need will be born in you to remain watchful of yourself wherever you are, and whatever you may be doing.
