Letting Go with Guy Finley

Patient persistence in our labors, coupled with persistent patience through-out each one: these two powers serve not only to perfect the task at hand, but also work in harmony to perfect the hand that undertakes the task.

Only the surrendering heart sees the good in moments that seem hard to bear. - Guy Finley

Unconscious suffering is a creation of incomplete perception; it is the inevitable painful outcome of having mistaken the partial for the whole.

***
Employing self-remembrance, strive to practice Presence; (this) one action is the path of spiritual purification, even as it serves to reveal all of God’s Kingdoms presently concealed within you.

Brooding, resenting, regretting… all are forms of unconscious suffering, and serve to strengthen the false notion that the negative state is a product of the condition, instead of a reflection of one’s consciousness.

To suffer consciously is to act in a whole new way where one chooses to be consciously passive to states that are (actively) blaming or judging; instead of being the instrument of these dark radiations, you bring the light of awareness into and upon them.

This new action of being quietly passive to painful thoughts and feelings is conscious suffering; through it one dies to the nature of the false active and is aligned by true action with a Living Light that changes whatever is brought into its healing wholeness.
