Letting Go with Guy Finley

Find Your Way to Peace

posted by Guy Finley

Peace cannot be bound but must be let loose by our growing realization that only in willingly losing ourselves within its life can we hope to know its everlasting tranquility. And yet, even though this peace cannot be bound, neither can it be lost! If you ever feel that you have lost peace, you must look to see where it is that you unknow­ingly, in error, gave it away or set it down by identifying with disrup­tive dark thoughts and conflicted feelings.

The next time something dark or disturbing tries to steal into you to wreck your contentment, do not consent to be drawn into its seemingly important considerations. Instead of sinking into this yawning abyss, rather than running after something to resolve that rift, better to remember this truth: the peace you long for also longs for you. Then, whatever you must do, find your way to it!

Here’s a good place to start. Come awake to the backdrop of stillness within you, and while being aware within it, watch your own thoughts and feelings trying to drag you into the noisy world of their worry and fear. If you will go silent before them, they have no choice but to enter into the silence with you. You can work at this exercise anytime you remember it. Try it now.

The Ocean of Truth

posted by Guy Finley

Feeling dissatisfied over what life presents in any given moment is like standing before the whole ocean and getting negative because part of you believes there’s only one place to enter its waters where it’s possible to enjoy yourself.

Nothing is too great for who you really are . . . any more than the ocean fears the rain-swollen rivers that rush in to fill it.

Remember, all comes in waves; the only thing that changes is their direction, which must happen by law. The only thing unchanging is the ocean from which these waves come. To know this truth, and to “rest” in it, is to not resist the waves when they move counter to one’s wishes.

His Light Landing

posted by Guy Finley

Listen!

There’s no such thing

As no chance

For redemption,

As long as the

Soul accepts

God’s correction.

And tho’ at times

He may feel

Heavy-handed,

This weight is naught

But His Light

Having landed.
