Letting Go with Guy Finley

Question: How do we deal with destructive people we live with — and those destructive parts of ourselves — once we have unknowingly invited them into our lives? How do we react to a sudden wind that blows sand in our eyes?

Answer: The first time you find yourself in a “sand storm” produced by being in wrong relationship with another person, or with parts within yourself, it must be realized that the reason for the “stinging” is because you don’t belong “there.” Once it becomes clear to us that there are people and parts of ourselves that are “desert dwellers” — lovers of low places — there no longer remains any excuse for being around them… no exceptions. Seek the highest regardless what the lowest says is “right” or “needful” for you. The self that believes there is a good reason for wandering around in a sand storm is kicking up the sands it cries about!

Part 1

To know why we feel as we do in any given moment, we need look no farther than what we love… for the mind cannot create anything that drags us down without our willing embrace.

Part 2

As goes your attention, so comes your experience.

Weak thoughts and feelings often feel strong but remember, real strength is never anxious, cruel, or punishing.

In this short talk, Guy Finley explains how conscious awareness of tension is the birthing ground of revelation and self-discovery.
