Why Being Worried Doesn’t Work

posted by Guy Finley

Stressful worry helps no one — not those we are concerned about, and certainly not us. Such worry heals nothing; instead, it hurts all who mistake its dark embrace as a path to empowerment. The only thing worry serves is to strengthen the grip of our fearful expectations and, in so doing, holds us captive in a bad dream of our own making.

 

(Audio) Wake Up to the Serenity of the Present Moment

posted by Guy Finley

In this podcast, Guy Finley reveals the serenity in the wholeness of the present moment. Our current nature thinks it can add something to Life. When we see a beautiful scene in nature, or hear glorious music, we know that there is no need to add one thing to it. Our task is to discover that all we will ever need is already within us right now, and that to do what I am doing with my full attention is to be connected to the present moment that is a living Wholeness.

How to Know the Best Diet

posted by Guy Finley

Whole, fresh (preferably organic foods) – vegetables, fruits, and grains – are the best diet. You will know the best diet for you if you put your love of God first. We can eat the same food and each of us will have a different reaction to that food. I know it’s hard, and it’s not much to go on, but make God your guide.

How do you make God your guide? Remember Him. When you eat, watch what happens. Instead of being captured by the desire to stuff as much food as is pleasurable for you (or as you can get in your mouth), eat consciously. Eat, knowing that you are acting out, as you are eating, something that has been taking place since the light first penetrated the darkness at Genesis. Watch.

If you’ll take care of yourself and be alert to yourself, you watch. The problem is, the appetites are stronger, aren’t they? Eat consciously. Watch what happens. If you’ll do that, you will know what you are supposed to eat. Raw is better. Organic is better. Eat as healthy as you possibly can — not for the sake of some image of yourself, but for the purpose of increasing your ability to be quiet and whole.

 

To Come and Go

Stand, like mountain,

Bend, like reed.

Surge, like fountain,

Wait, like seed.

Give, like sunshine,

Melt, like snow.

Live like springtime . . .  Come and go.
