Letting Go with Guy Finley

Wherever you are in any given moment is exactly where you need to be in order to receive the lessons your soul has both requested and that it requires to outgrow its present set of circumstances.

To not want any particular moment is to ensure that you will find yourself in a similar situation again.  Resistance rules out receptivity, and only an open mind can be renewed.

The four conditions for happiness are simple: clear eyes, a quiet mind, a sense of beauty, and an open heart. Unhappiness is the dark effect of refusing to cultivate these essential elements for having imagined, by a false light, a contentment that does not exist.

The real limitation in life is a creation of the illusion that outside of us exists something that — if we could only gain it — would have the effect of making of us more than we already possess the potential to be.

When the love of God is your guide, you never step into a moment that isn’t what you’ve always been waiting for.
