Free Yourself from Anxiety

posted by Guy Finley

Anxiety is one of the more difficult internal states to work with because of the way it works within us. The key is to begin realizing that the only influence any anxious state can have over us is in what it promises us we will have if we will do what the state tells us to do. One of the important aspects of your inner work is to begin learning deeply to recognize these individual states as they invade your psychic system, and in the beginning (if nothing else), to meet these states — especially anxiety — with what you know is true about the state instead of listening to what the state tells you is true about you. The Truth wants you to understand that fearful states live for themselves at your expense. The clearer this becomes to you, the freer you will be from giving yourself away to any anxious state.

Put the Light on Anger

posted by Guy Finley

Question: When I look at myself, it seems that my most prevalent emotion is anger. It’s always there, and I feel powerless to stop my raging thoughts. What can I do? I really am weary of my own out-of-control emotions.

Answer: You already know that your anger is destroying you. It is… and it will. The fact that you are tired of losing your life to these self-harming psychic states means you are ready for a change. Here is a new way to work with what’s been working you over: The next time some hostile state takes you over, either in thought — as in remembering something someone did to you in the past — or in an actual moment of conflict with someone standing before you, take the following inner steps as soon as you can remember yourself to do so: Start by seeing that something foreign to your True Nature has imposed itself on you, taken over your life. Once having done this, do nothing else except realize that while you may be temporarily powerless to stop the lower state from possessing you, you are empowered to recognize the negative state as the intruder that it is. This awareness, this conscious, unself-justifying awareness of your true pained condition, is what it means to put the Light on the problem. That’s your job. The Light will do its part if you’ll do yours. Persist until you are free!

The Work of Bringing Light into the World

posted by Guy Finley

It is so important that we do our correct part to help spread the Light, but this need not be a “big thing.” And as long as we remain considerate of others, and what may be their wish to be left alone, how we do our spiritual work can be as simple as the following: Maybe make an effort to elevate the table talk at a meal to include a right idea you heard or are interested in, or don’t pick up a negative comment someone throws at you. The point is to be active in putting the Truth first. Everything you do to help or encourage someone else along the way strengthens and encourages both of you. Of this there is no doubt. All things good come to those for whom the good is all things.

The Interior Action that Builds Character
The character of goodness, of compassion and kindness that we would like to reflect and express before our friends (and enemies), requires that we place “its” life before our own. And yet, when we agree to this interior action of self-sacrifice, not only is our life returned to us, but we find t

Enter a World Where Goodness is Its Own Reward
