Revealed: The “Anti-Change Factor” (Part 1)

posted by Guy Finley

It isn’t something of which most of us are aware, but we human beings are “marked” with a certain strange feature: and that is…we want to change.
Perhaps you’re thinking: “What’s so strange about that?” After all, who amongst us isn’t familiar with this ever-present longing (of ours)? Granted, taken by itself, this desire doesn’t seem so strange; that is, until we realize the obvious: we are always changing. In fact, not a single moment goes by where who — and what — we are remains the same.

Statistics vary, but in less than seven years there won’t be a single cell left in any of our bodies that’s the same cell there today. This means that any human being who “wants” to change is like a mountain river wanting to reach the valley floor. It’s a done deal; that’s what mountain rivers do, and “changing” should be our first nature. Yet…

Any true longing we have to change is born of our innate wish to transcend our present level of being: on the one hand to know, consciously — unmistakably — that we are fulfilling some unseen, but higher reason for our very existence; and, at the same time, as a pre-requisite to this invisible mandate, to rise above those prevalent and often quite dark parts of us that drag us down, and that soil or spoil our relationships with others. Few would argue these points. Yet, this longing to participate in the perfection of our being has been subverted and, perhaps more truly spoken, stolen from out of our hands… [to be continued]

Make Better Choices for a Better Life

posted by Guy Finley

Every moment that unfolds in life presents us with an invitation to choose either the path of what will better us or a path that will make us more bitter — as when we unconsciously embrace a resentment instead of working to release it. To be Wise is to choose in favor of the Better Path, even though the bitter one often seems easier.

Guy Finley explains that as your awareness of the natural laws that currently govern your actions increases, so does your ability to make choices based on higher knowledge instead of being blindly guided by ignorance. Spiritually speaking, this is the beginning of the development of true free will.

Start Over and Keep the Wind at Your Back

posted by Guy Finley

I can’t tell you how important it is for you to set your spiritual aim for self-freedom over and over, each day. Then, start over as though a whole new wind were at your back. If you will do this, this new wind will be there to help you along.

More than anything else, try to remember each morning — before the winds of this world pick you up and carry you off — that you want to be more awake to yourself than you were the day before, and that you want to have more choices today — in who you are and what you embrace — than you did yesterday. This wish, and the work to fulfill it, will increase your awareness of NOT having real choice.

To grow inwardly requires we enter, willingly, into a new kind of struggle wherein we begin to become conscious of our own divided nature. This new and heightened consciousness of our present division — in our longings and the relationships they engender — produces a new order of self-awareness. From this awakened awareness, and in it, we can begin to grow.

Remember: What you want from this life you will eventually have to have, so be wise: Want truth, freedom, and Light. Win these things and you have won it all.
