Beyond the Power to Materialize

posted by Guy Finley

Question: What do you think about the teaching or belief that we have the power to create or materialize anything that we want in life — money, good health, etc. — by keeping that positive thought in mind as though we already have it, and not allowing the negative to neutralize it?

Answer: We have the power to create forms. We do not have the power to fulfill ourselves through these forms that we create. See the difference and then see the lie inherent in the so-called “New Age” teachings that place you in charge of what is whole. What is truly whole and holy is not something that we create in or through anything, but a nature we discover in ourselves… if we will.

 

True Revolution

posted by Guy Finley

If only we would cease giving others

Reasons to resist our presence,

Bear ourselves

With what we burden them,

Leaving no reason for blame . . .

Then . . . that great silent rage

Hidden in the human heart

Would have to be seen for what it is:

Violence looking for a war.

Such a discovery would awaken

Within the discerning soul

The immediate, most intimate need

To be the embodiment of peace.

This seeing-born need

Is the seed of true revolution.

 

Why Being Worried Doesn’t Work

posted by Guy Finley

Stressful worry helps no one — not those we are concerned about, and certainly not us. Such worry heals nothing; instead, it hurts all who mistake its dark embrace as a path to empowerment. The only thing worry serves is to strengthen the grip of our fearful expectations and, in so doing, holds us captive in a bad dream of our own making.

 

(Audio) Wake Up to the Serenity of the Present Moment

posted by Guy Finley

In this podcast, Guy Finley reveals the serenity in the wholeness of the present moment. Our current nature thinks it can add something to Life. When we see a beautiful scene in nature, or hear glorious music, we know that there is no need to add one thing to it. Our task is to discover that all we will ever need is already within us right now, and that to do what I am doing with my full attention is to be connected to the present moment that is a living Wholeness.

No Greater Gift
It is given to us to choose in which of the infinite worlds we will dwell, and there is no greater gift, nor power, granted to any creature under the sun. To not know one's choice, or worse, to have abdicated this right, is to turn your life over to forces that oppose the possibility of rebirth.
