Letting Go with Guy Finley

Just as the man who climbs a great unknown mountain marvels one moment at what his ascent reveals, only to tremble before the next ridge revealed above him that he knows blocks his way, so too our journey inward offers every conceivable experience, and then some.

These moments themselves are like flowers and boulders along the Way; we stop and take in the beauty, even as we collect ourselves to step over what hinders us.

True balance is understanding the ever-changing nature of our (spiritual) task, and meeting it that way; neither collecting beauty, nor regretting blockages… just eyes facing ever-upward and ahead, taking in everything and reflecting it at the same time.

Just as an acorn that goes unplanted in the earth can never realize its destiny to become a mighty oak, so it holds with any Real Spiritual Principle that we unearth in our journey through this life: only those Truths developed in us — by reason of our work to see that they take root in the ground of our soul — are empowered to grant us the strength, shelter, and sustenance of their eternal Life.

 

Learn to be thankful that life is being given to you moment by moment, for it is only through such gratitude that love reveals the great secret of rebirth…

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.
