Step Into the Unknown

posted by Guy Finley

When, at times, the spiritual aspirant feels as though there’s no reason to go on…because he can no longer believe in an imagined good somewhere ahead of him, he comes to what seems a complete dead end. And yet, it is exactly in this place that he must step through himself, and persist in the work of doing what is right and true simply for the sake of a Goodness yet unknown, barely realized.

But by what will can he pass into and through this place of emptiness? He is without the fullness, the motivation provided by hope in things seen; he has no force of his own to summon. His heart is dry, his mind barren of reason other than why he should accept what seems an obvious end to his quest.

And so, he stands in a strange desolation. He is double stricken, for his is the poverty and the paradox of somehow knowing that even though he can’t do a single thing to increase his stature…nevertheless, somewhere within him, just ahead awaits a great prize: the realization, inheritance, and authority over worlds untold.

And so, summoning a will not his own… he steps into the unknown.

(Video) There's No Sense of Self in a Right Action
Guy Finley explains that true goodness is not measured by actions which validate your image of being good. What is truly good has no self-reference -- it comes from pure action, which is a natural outcome of being present. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apyGb3NXhnQ[/youtube]

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
Once we see it's impossible to please ourselves at the expense of the pain of someone else, we are released from the cycle of seeking a false comfort whose conflict compromises "winners" and "losers" alike. Only then are we free to enter a new world – above the opposites -- where goodness is its o
