A New Consciousness for the Holidays

posted by Guy Finley

If you’re going to become a different kind of human being, you need to become aware of certain aspects of human consciousness. These conditions become more easily recognizable in the frantic energy of the holiday season…

There is a monster at large. It is in our body. This monster doesn’t care about anything other than what it needs in order to feel about itself what it has named as being primary for that moment.

No one wants to suffer the fact that the world they see is what it is because of the way they are. Why? Because then we have to meet this thing that doesn’t see, but just wants. We have to meet this thing that doesn’t consider anything outside of itself other than what is necessary to support whatever it is feeling about itself in the moment.

To be blinded means to be out of relationship with what’s around you. And the point of spirit, as opposed to the movement of the world, is that spirit (what is true) is always in relationship with what is around it. It’s never not conscious of its relationship to life. So gradually a human being begins to recognize that it’s mandatory to become still. Without stillness there is no hope for transformation.

True spirituality begins with us becoming conscious of ourselves in the world, as we are, and as the world is. Then because of that consciousness, change becomes necessary. It’s not a question anymore of us wanting to change; we are staggered by the fact of what we are.

Be different this year by being different now. Try to see past the movement of your own mind. The only way to see past the movement that is generated by desire and the mind is for there to be something still in you. If there is nothing still in you, then you are part of all of that movement.

This is what the holidays are about, as far as I’m concerned: Where is it possible for me to step out of the worldly movement and into the stillness of spirit that can be a part of the world but is not in it in the way that I am when I am part of that blind movement to satisfy myself?

It’s not easy to change one’s psychology, but I can assure you, if you don’t do that work, you will be part of a blind force that is consumed by a blind force and that ends in a blind force.

On the other hand, this time of the year, do what you can, wherever you can, and suffer what you must consciously. Cease to be a part of what is destroying this earth and the soul inside of you, and become part of the creation of a new world that begins within you and is finally expressed in a Light that dawns and is born upon the earth.

If you love getting gifts — and who doesn’t — then why not accept, with gratitude, the greatest gift there is: the “present” moment.

Six Lessons to Help You Step out of the Rush

posted by Guy Finley

The following six Key Lessons contain special understanding about the nature of invisible pressure-filled states that cause run human beings to run themselves ragged. The clearer we can see the reasons for why our lives are always in such a rush, the sooner we arrive at the true solutions that allow us to slow down, take command, and realize the relaxed pace of Real Life. Study each lesson separately for the secret it tells; put all the lessons together and let them tell you the true story of how you can realize a New Life that is always at peace within itself.

1. An unseen force that makes “mountains out of molehills” is the presence of that pressure within us that causes us to rush through life. There is a secret and inverse proportion between this pressing need we have for speed, and how important we must be if we’re always anxious to get somewhere else in a hurry.

2. Rushing from place to place is a poor man’s riches; for in his ceaseless hurry to reach the pleasure or power he imagines, he is able to temporarily escape the poverty of himself that he would rather not know.

3. Here is a truth unseen by the masses, but evident to those weary of going nowhere fast: he who rushes through life always finishes last! Here’s why this is true: we race as we do to escape our sense of unhappiness with where we are, endlessly running towards what we imagine will free us from our own dissatisfied feelings; but such races are always lost before they begin, because who do you know that can outrun himself?

4. Rushing through life lends the one who habitually hurries the feeling of being “important”; but loans such as these come at the high cost of always having to justify one’s unkindness — as when one has to convince himself that his impatience with others is a necessary evil along the way that “greater good” towards which he thinks he runs.

5. Patience is a great virtue that is painfully learned by becoming conscious of what our impatience does to others.

 

6. One is well on his or her way to the Awakened Life when just to be alive is their source of peace and contentment.
