Question: When quieting my mind, there is sometimes a feeling of peace and clarity in the present moment, but often there is this gloomy, dark feeling of emptiness, together with a sense of fear about the future making me feel very vulnerable. Why this inconsistency?
Answer: One of the small pieces of higher knowledge that we need when we set out on the path of Truth is that not all of us wants to make this journey. Within us dwell certain energetic bodies that are only comfortable in a dark and divided world. When we become quiet and invite the Light into us to see ourselves (and this life) by, the entrance of the ineffable sets off this level of self. Watch it like you watch everything else, and let go of anything it brings up in you.
Question: Can you help shed some light on why we are here in this life?
Answer: All of our deeper personal experiences eventually come to reveal some lesson that we needed to learn. This process of events that leads us to the discovery of their cause proves both the existence of order and purpose. The outcome of each experience turns out to be for personal growth. Therefore, it is safe to say we are here on earth, in these bodies, to grow in wisdom and the love that is an outgrowth of it.
In this short talk, Guy Finley talks about how the mind’s painful struggle to understand any given moment actually prevents the true understanding of the moment from reaching us.
To see … that we are held in life by what we hold onto as life is the birth of our real life in the light.
To do those works required of us, to act from what we know is right and true — even when we don’t want to — is the first step of giving birth to something in ourselves that gradually gives us, effortlessly, everything that we need to be right and true.
