What else is the blow of any pain that follows the loss of something thought to be our own, but a sharp and merciful reminder that in this life we do not possess what we imagine we do!
The next time that a piece of your life breaks off and falls away, try to remember that what is Real cannot be lost, and then give thanks that what is false must always prove itself so.
We can either spend our time thinking about what we don’t have, feeling empty and bitter over some imagined contentment lost… or we can become quietly aware of what we already are and find there, within our Self, what is overflowing, full of Light, and beyond the reach of any dark thought.
When we know that life – bare as it may be at times – is the most precious gift of all, then ours is a peace beyond profit and immune to loss.
In this short talk, Guy Finley talks about how it is possible for us to discover an authentically new life if we will persist with our wish to know the truth of ourselves.
