The Winds of Faith

posted by Guy Finley

When the soul cries out to spirit to carry her to a new world beyond the boundaries of this earthly domain, she is calling for the winds of faith to sweep down, fill her tattered and empty sails, and take her safely away. The wait for these winds is never too long for any soul who is both patient and persistent in purpose.

And when—as it must come to pass upon any such journey home—dark, uncharted waters begin breaking over the sloping bow of her deck and no calm anchorage is anywhere in sight—the soul, now being swept across the deep of unknown seas, must keep in her heart the remembrance of two things: she cannot know her destination, and she must surrender the helm of her vessel and agree to follow the winds that she has invoked to transport her there.


The Promise of an Immortal Self

posted by Guy Finley

Within each of us already lives a higher order of being, an immortal spirit that neither time nor circumstance can cause to end.


Seated at the center of each of us lies buried a kind of celestial seed, buried there since the beginning of time. But this divine gift must be awakened—in this lifetime—before its fruit can be realized, for it alone contains life’s greatest prize: victory over death—a conscious connection to a vine everlasting that never dies. The expression of this fruition is inseparable from our freedom from the fear of death, even as our freedom from death is the same as finally fulfilling our highest individual possibilities.

The true purpose for the incarnation of Christ or any other authentic avatar, saint, prophet, or sage—regardless of his or her place and time of birth—is a single purpose expressed through two phases. First, to remind us of our lost heritage: we are children of a Celestial Being and within us dwells the seed of an immortal Self. And second, upon awakening to this forgotten heritage, to accept the responsibility that comes with it: to use our lives to help manifest the will of heaven on earth so that these two planes of existence, and their beings, may be reconciled and perfected accordingly.


The higher order of unconditional love and compassion, as evidenced by the selfless lives of saints and sages—acting as heralds of a heaven to come—proves the existence of a higher order of being awakened in them but still asleep within us. As such, the knowledge they disseminate is designed to help us awaken this celestial consciousness within us, much as sunlight acts upon a dormant seed, stirring it to open. All true spiritual masters are in concert when it comes to this last vital revelation; it is perhaps the greatest spiritual “secret” on this earth.

For any “flower” to live, the seed of its origin must die. It is a law: the latter must pass before the former can prosper and reveal its latent potential. Virtually all scripture, East and West, affirms this sacred teaching as expressed here by Christ:
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.” The hidden meaning of this oft-quoted, little-understood phrase is as follows: the “corn of wheat” in this passage represents the spiritually asleep, unawakened human. The seed, in both instances, is just the first stage of its being; it is a herald of possibilities yet to be realized. As such, as is true with any seed, physical or spiritual, if it doesn’t succeed with its ordained task or somehow rejects its natural role, the very reason for its existence is rendered null and void.


We hold within us a sublime seed richly impregnated with divine possibilities; it is our greatest gift. Within it lives the promise of an immortal Self, a celestial citizenship in a world outside the prison and pain of passing time. But again—as is true of all seeds, regardless of their nature—each must find the right conditions and nourishment needed for it to flourish. Once accomplished, almost nothing can stop this seed from breaking free and stepping out of its confining husk. In that instant it is reborn into a new form; it enters into the next level of its being, and the journey begins anew.


Witness Your Own Rebirth

posted by Guy Finley

In times of great upheaval, if you will only agree to let go and die to yourself, it won’t be you who passes. So that not only will you bear witness to the sacrifice of yourself, but you will also see your own rebirth.


The Spiritual Secret of Secrets

posted by Guy Finley

Rebirth is made possible because something dies to ensure it. In this eternal law of life hides a new understanding, a great key that many have sought but only few have ever found. As we are about to see, it opens an interior door that leads directly to a conscious relationship with the divinity within us.

Life will always give you something greater than what it’s asked you for, providing you’re willing to let go of that part of yourself that, for fear of the new, favors what’s old. It’s impossible to cling to who you have been … and be free of yourself at the same time.

This great exchange and the self-sacrifice for which it calls is the spiritual secret of secrets. Your willingness to enact it is the same as finding the “perfect love that casts out all fears.”


Your success depends upon being able to see that real life is secretly a single, beautiful movement incapable of contradicting itself. The more you understand how this one truth includes everything that happens to you, the more you’ll be willing to let go and enter into the flow of even your most unwanted moments!

In this light, the old adage “let go and let God” takes on a whole new meaning; it is a single action born of two harmonizing parts: the need to release yourself from a part of yourself that no longer serves your best interests, and the simultaneous rebirth of a new order of self beyond anything you could have imagined.
