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.

The Beginning of Real Gratitude
To have real gratitude, to have that fullness of heart that, by its greatness, fulfills the one who holds it, begins with allowing God to give you a portion of His Life... a gift one can only receive once he stops giving himself what he thinks he must have to fulfill his life.

A Life of Servitude or Gratitude: The Choice is Yours!
This life of ours can either be one of endless servitude or endless gratitude, and we must choose which it is to be.
