Lessons in Leaving Behind the Rushed Life

posted by Guy Finley

Part I:

Being anxious, always in a rush and racing after whatever it is we’ve imagined will help us to be more at peace with ourselves, is like running to catch the shadow of a passing cloud on a hot summer’s day so that we get to stand in a cool spot!

Part II:

Rushing through our lives does not produce more time, or do one thing to increase productivity. To the contrary, rushing limits all possibilities by restricting our powers of higher choice — even as it crushes our unique opportunity to discover and realize the Timeless Life that is our birthright.

The Touch of Truth

posted by Guy Finley

Just as we cannot hope to catch and keep a cooling breeze on a hot summer’s eve, but only stand still there — grateful for the moment of its passing — neither can we take hold of what is True or born of Love. Like the flame of a candle that comforts us on a dark night, Truth and Love may not be held by us, even though we are made for one another; for any movement made toward them, to possess their peaceful Presence, only causes them to flicker and go out.

Summer – A Natural Time for Letting Go

posted by Guy Finley

Summer is a secret time of sacrifice; it marks nature’s perpetual passage from one form into another. The evidence is everywhere: flowers shed their petals to reveal the baby fruits hidden in their buds, even as other maturing fruits ripen to reach maximum sweetness, only to fall to the ground as food for those who find these seasonal gifts.

Letting go takes place naturally as we grow to see that whatever we will release of ourselves is returned to us, only transformed into something greater than what we thought we gave away.

Whenever we will actively surrender ourselves to God, to the Life Divine, then we aren’t just relieved of nagging worries, fears, and doubts; these lower estates of consciousness are replaced with higher ones. For our sacrifice we are given a whole new Self that lives in a world of light where dark states cannot dwell.

Question: What can one do to have a greater awareness of reality? Answer: A quart cup cannot hold a gallon of water. Don’t worry about “a greater awareness” but be as constant and conscious as you can towards the awareness you can bring to bear. Each moment we put our wish for the present m

Living the Beauty of the Present Moment
The present moment is the canvas of creation: our perception, a palette of primary colors; our actions, brush strokes -- while thought provides both background and texture. To know these things is the beginning of the artful life.
