Letting Go of Excitement and Anticipation

posted by Guy Finley

QUESTION

It is easy for me to try to let go of the negatives such as anger or worry. My problems come from the ones I like but that get me in trouble, such as excitement, anticipation, etc. These I know are also false but sometimes so much fun. How do I give these up?

ANSWER

Consider this simple truth and how it holds true in all levels of life: “The child finds the classroom when he or she tires of the playground.” What you are really saying is that the temptation of an exciting sense of yourself presently outweighs your wish for a deeper relationship with that which doesn’t lose itself to any moment. What we must all do is work increasingly to stay awake in all such moments and, by this kind of self-remembering, begin to “taste” more deeply these exciting states. There is nothing wrong with a good time, but not when the cost of it is the compromise of our conscience. Staying awake, coupled with your continuing work, will eventually lend you the inner force necessary to remain detached from these or any other troubles.

Harness the Planetary Power of Spring, Part 2

posted by Guy Finley

How can we harness the planetary power of spring for our own good? Here are just a few of the many ways we can work with the season to start a new life for ourselves:

All past wishes lying dormant within us — to outgrow old limitations — should be brought out into the light of our longing to transform them and be left there to bathe in our need to be free. Whatever conditions in life may have once overcome us should be re-challenged now, regardless of past results.

And, as spring marks the return of a celestial light that gradually grows greater than the darkness it has come to dismiss, so is this the best time to stand up and start walking through whatever frightens us.

We should work to detect and detach ourselves from old heartaches, keeping our eye on emerging possibilities, instead of looking back at lost opportunities. By acting in this way — as though we are free — we find that what once held us captive no longer has the power to keep us down. We succeed because we have becomes partners with the light of Real Life.

Each spring great forces are released to work upon and within us. Life is literally seeking itself through us, asking us to open ourselves and receive what will renew us. But, if we would receive this new life, with all its promise, then we must be willing to sacrifice within us whatever stands in its way. We can only be made as new as we are willing to let go of who we have been, and springtime not only awakens this need within us, but it also grants us the possibility of its realization.

Harness the Planetary Power of Spring, Part 1

posted by Guy Finley

During this time of the year it would be easier to stop the earth from spinning than to stop the surge of new life being awakened within her.

Seeds buried in the earth are broken apart from the inside out, made to release their delicate shoots of grasses, herbs, and flowers that reach for the light above them. And, as if by magic, along the sides of seemingly lifeless branches appear silver-green buds of baby leaves that stretch out to unfold themselves like banners in the sun.

Life is beginning again everywhere, and so can we, if we are willing.

The power of spring lends us the fresh forces we need to break through and to let go of old patterns. During this time of the year, the possibility of making a brand new beginning in life is never greater. Why is this true? Because spring also dawns within us, and if we will align ourselves with the power of its presence, then the unstoppable principle of rebirth itself will work for us.
