The Mirror of Compassion

When I look at you,

I am looking at me . . .

In a time or place

I have been, or will be.

 

Beyond the Power to Materialize

posted by Guy Finley

Question: What do you think about the teaching or belief that we have the power to create or materialize anything that we want in life — money, good health, etc. — by keeping that positive thought in mind as though we already have it, and not allowing the negative to neutralize it?

Answer: We have the power to create forms. We do not have the power to fulfill ourselves through these forms that we create. See the difference and then see the lie inherent in the so-called “New Age” teachings that place you in charge of what is whole. What is truly whole and holy is not something that we create in or through anything, but a nature we discover in ourselves… if we will.

 

True Revolution

posted by Guy Finley

If only we would cease giving others

Reasons to resist our presence,

Bear ourselves

With what we burden them,

Leaving no reason for blame . . .

Then . . . that great silent rage

Hidden in the human heart

Would have to be seen for what it is:

Violence looking for a war.

Such a discovery would awaken

Within the discerning soul

The immediate, most intimate need

To be the embodiment of peace.

This seeing-born need

Is the seed of true revolution.

 

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.

How to Stop the Spiritually Sick from Infecting You
No person is good or bad in and of himself, any more than a trumpet is good or bad for the music sounded out of its horn. It is the “player,” the musician behind the mouthpiece who determines these qualities by his selection of song and the manner of performance. The same principle holds true

Working to Free Yourself from Negative Influences
Question: I am at work sometimes as much as I am at home. How do we avoid the negative influences of others in the workplace? Answer: The whole point is not that we avoid what are unavoidable, difficult conditions, but that we recognize the discomfort we feel belongs to our own resistance to thes

Reject Soul-Destructive Energies
There are many un-illumined and downward trending parts in all of us that not only seek out their unconscious counterparts (in others) but that are secretly strengthened in the conflicted company of such dark and negative energies. We can see the truth of this strange spiritual condition by bearing

Stop Cooking Your Own Goose!
Any time you sit, think about, and "stew" over what someone did to you, or simmer in anger about some past event, the real reason for your pain is because you're cooking your own goose!
