Letting Go with Guy Finley

Hope for the Earth

posted by Guy Finley

Question: Sometimes I feel so hopeful for the world, and other times I almost feel there is no hope for this Earth.

Answer: I know this seems like a paradox, but both feelings you have are correct. To put this in perspective — the hope for our world rests in the hands of those men and women who, like yourself, are beginning to awaken to what has happened to this world because of a humanity fast asleep. On the other hand, for sleeping human beings, there is no hope outside of the dream state they dwell in that promises them tomorrow they will escape the nightmare of their own unconscious actions. Work. Never let discouragement have the last word.

The Way Out of Any Stressful Situation

posted by Guy Finley

Question: One maxim of self-development I sense is true is that the way out of any stressful situation is to “go through it.” How does this approach apply to reducing stress-producing thought-attacks?

Answer: Everything depends upon our ability to inwardly discriminate between thoughts and feelings that are for us as opposed to those that are against us. Whenever confronted with an onslaught of internal impressions, the most powerful tool you have is to go silent. Step away from the situation inwardly by bringing everything that is going through you into your deliberate field of attention. There is a native unity in a silent mind that is able to both witness and “taste” the thoughts and feelings passing through it. It is this internal field of silence that reveals the character of any impressions and shows them for what they are. It’s hard to make a mistake when your first wish is to see these thoughts and feelings instead of just unconsciously turning your will over to them.

In a time or place

I have been, or will be.
