The Fearless Heart on a Warrior’s Way

posted by Guy Finley

Truth teachings throughout the ages tell us that healing the hidden and hurting places in our heart begins with becoming conscious of them. We are taught that we cannot free our­selves of anything that we refuse to meet face-to-face. The great American philosopher and self-realized author, Ralph Waldo Emerson, confirms this spiritual fact: “In regard to disagreeable and formidable things, prudence does not consist in evasion or flight but in courage. He who wishes to walk in the most peaceful parts of life with any serenity must screw himself up to resolution. Let him front the object of his worst apprehension, and his stoutness will commonly make his fear groundless.”

What encouragement! But these words are more than merely motiva­tional. The promise hidden in this powerful principle doesn’t just leave us wanting the courage we need, far from it. Such truths invite us to see our lives through their eyes, where we are shown the existence of a fearless heart, free from all self-compromise. We catch sight of a warrior’s way, where the favorable outcome of our struggle becomes cer­tain the moment we choose to explore what is yet to be discovered within ourselves. But that’s not all. These same truths hint of the great­est gift of all — not only the possibility of a liberated life, but the prom­ise of it fulfilled. And all that is asked of those who would enter this bright new world is to embrace its reality within themselves.

(Audio) Keys to Consciously Changing Yourself

posted by Guy Finley

Guy explains that one of the primary reasons why we don’t change is because there’s no space in our life. He shows how real change requires we agree to the stirrings and disturbances that are part of the full life. These stirrings and disturbances actually serve a purpose we cannot know in advance.

Learn to Dismiss the Storms that Sink You

posted by Guy Finley

Question: It seems like the more I struggle with a disturbance, the more it stays with me. The more I think about it, the more intense it gets. What is the way out of this trap?

Answer: No disturbance of any kind has the power to swamp and sink our heart or mind once we realize that we are the one lending these storms the force they need to drag us down. In practical terms this means that whatever disturbances we unknow­ingly create within us may be instantly un-created in the very same moment we withdraw our consent to remain conflicted.

The storms we suffer are not born simply from any particular event that takes place, but rather they rise from an unknown ground in us due to our undetected resistance to them. Further, these unwanted events that we so strongly resist are not the actual events themselves. What we secretly struggle against in these moments are unwanted images of that event fashioned by ourselves. This occurs, for example, when we imagine a fearful future, or see ourselves thrown for a social loss of some sort. In these moments we suffer, as we do, because we are looking at what we don’t want to see. And then, because we don’t know that we have been tricked into giving these negative fantasies our attention, we try to imagine ways to escape their punishing presence. The more we struggle to get away, the more attention we inadvertently lend to what we wish would dis­appear! It’s a great paradox: not wanting to look upon what is both­ering us keeps what is bothering us in plain view! But now we are beginning to see our way out of this trap.

From this moment forward, whenever some dark storm appears in us, we must neither run from it nor stand there and hate what we think is happening. Instead we must awaken to ourselves, bring our­selves back into the Now and quietly, deliberately, drop any image that our thought-nature presents within us to justify the brewing con­flict. Learning to dismiss the storms that sink our chances to be happy takes dedicated inner work, but you may be assured such powers are possible. Your True Nature already dwells beyond the reach self-wrecking storms. Join it; begin Now!

The Manifestation of a Greater Love

Just as tumbling leaves in the wind make the wind visible, so does the need of someone — that stirs the heart of another to answer it — reveal the presence of a love greater than either person, yet that lives as one within both.
