How Depression Clings

posted by Guy Finley

Depression always begins as an intrusion of the psychic kind, and gradually works its way into our material body. Bit by bit we become infused with certain chemicals as a result of this energy we have mistakenly identified with. Try to see the relationship between states that cling and keep you captive, and how you’ve consented to pay attention to these same states. This will break the bonds.


Seeing Through the Sand Storm

posted by Guy Finley

Question: How do we deal with destructive people we live with — and those destructive parts of ourselves — once we have unknowingly invited them into our lives? How do we react to a sudden wind that blows sand in our eyes?

Answer: The first time you find yourself in a “sand storm” produced by being in wrong relationship with another person, or with parts within yourself, it must be realized that the reason for the “stinging” is because you don’t belong “there.” Once it becomes clear to us that there are people and parts of ourselves that are “desert dwellers” — lovers of low places — there no longer remains any excuse for being around them… no exceptions. Seek the highest regardless what the lowest says is “right” or “needful” for you. The self that believes there is a good reason for wandering around in a sand storm is kicking up the sands it cries about!

Part 2

As goes your attention, so comes your experience.
