What to Do When Darkness Captures You

posted by Guy Finley

If you can do nothing else in some moment of being a slave to some negative state, then at least work to remember your real wish to serve what is right and true, regardless of the cost to you. This higher intention is your connection to a level of consciousness that can’t be dragged down into that darkness through which you now stumble.

Although hard to “see” when so blinded by some rage, fear, or worry… your conscious intention has “eyes” of its own; they “see” what you are now only starting to intuit: who you really are has nothing in common with the conflict you feel coursing through you.

It’s your resistance to the pain that plants your feet in the world where woes grow like weeds. Your intention to see the truth (of yourself), and your willingness to bear the light that shines down into you (from the higher world from where this intention originates) gradually, but unmistakably, release you from the level of self that loves its suffering.

A Higher Understanding of Suffering

Are all of these struggles and their sufferings merely disparate circumstances, void of meaning and vicious in intent, or are these vicissitudes of life invisible structures placed before us, meant to reveal both the ladder to the Heavens and the Soul created to ascend it? How we answer this question determines the direction and the outcome of our individual existence.

There is that suffering that serves to ripen the soul and there is that suffering that rots it… and each person must choose.

How to Do the Best for Your Children

posted by Guy Finley

Question: What steps can one take to point young children in their right path so they won’t have to face so many problems growing up?

Answer: Children and sponges have a lot in common. They soak up what is around them. Words that are in contrast with conditions are soaked up by children in the form of conflict. Our task is first to learn how to learn ourselves. As we actually begin learning, our very nature becomes our teacher. This is the best we can do for children until they are old enough to begin connecting their aches and pains with the choices made by their “intelligence.”

The Natural Healing of Sorrow

posted by Guy Finley

Grief has a natural place in our lives. The heart is a beautiful and eternal creature whose wisdom transcends the mind that tries to work its way out of sorrow.

Just as there are seasons on this earth that include the repose and rest of winter, so is there a natural winter of the heart. It is our responsibility to become self-knowing enough — self aware enough — not only to recognize the beauty of these seasons of the heart, but to embrace them for the naturally healing, naturally renewing seasons that they are. Sorrow is one of the seasons that we must let run its course.

When God Gives the Tough Tests
Question: I have been a Christian almost all my life. A few years ago I had to have open-heart surgery, which caused a stroke, messing up my ability to do my job.

See Your Way Clear of Self-Defeating Thoughts and Feelings
I'm sure that we can all agree that no intelligent, conscious man or woman would ever intentionally hurt him or herself. No one would choose to ache. Yet the fact remains that all of us do hurt ourselves every day with bursts of anger or fits of depression or anxiety. There can be no doubt, beginnin

Find New Happiness in Self-Wholeness
Before we can know a happiness beyond the reach of conflict or sorrow, we must ourselves be whole; for any happiness apart from self-wholeness is only half a happiness and must, in time, prove itself so.
