(Video) How to Find True Balance in Life

posted by Guy Finley

Guy Finley explains that the grand movement of life itself is a ceaseless rebalancing. But because the native state of every living organism is inertia, when life produces the conditions it needs to make itself complete and whole we find ourselves resisting any change. In these moments we can either allow ourselves to be handed over to negative states such as resistance and procrastination, or we can use the moment to join the broader scope of life.

Let Truth Balance You

posted by Guy Finley

Question: Is it easier to grow spiritually if one is naturally “emotional,” that is having easier access to one’s feelings?

Answer: We are each according to type “centered” in certain centers in us. Some are more emotional, some are more intellectual, some more instinctual. The highly emotional individual does have a lot to work with, but is also hampered by the possible absence of reason (the higher function of intellect). All told, all that really matters is a person’s intention to awaken. The Truth will balance and guide any person willing.

Real Change Begins with Honest Self-Investigation

Nothing seems harder to accept than the fact that we are responsible for so much of what proves to be unnecessary suffering. But we must challenge this involuntary, often intractable refusal to consider such ideas. The truth is that we are actively involved with unseen thoughts and feelings that compromise us. Without the self-knowledge we need to nullify this conflicted condition in our psyche, how can we hope to end the heartaches that begin there? How can we hope to heal something we won’t even look at!

On the other hand, nothing is healthier for us than the beauti¬ful process of awakening to how we have been unwittingly involved in our own suffering. We stand in good company when we consent to see these truths within ourselves. All truth teachings agree: freedom from compulsive or otherwise self-wrecking behavior begins with recognizing that we have been unknowingly serving what makes us suffer. Yes, awakening to what has been an unseen conflict in us is a challenge, but this interior work of self-realization is more than offset by the rewards gained for our efforts. Here’s why:

Conscious awareness of ourselves is one and the same as living in the Now. It is the seed of a new action whose flowering is a self-wholeness that is inseparable from the higher freedom we seek.

True Balance Through Self-Knowledge

posted by Guy Finley

We are not made by that Great Intelligence that balances whole star systems, to suffer from the conflict that arises from an unbal­anced understanding of our own essential nature! This is why if we ever wish to gain conscious control over our present nature — along with what it attracts into our life — we must gain what the great saints and mystics have always held in the highest esteem: true self-knowl­edge. But this needed higher knowledge cannot be acquired from sources outside of us; it must be gained through personal self-discovery. Only real changes in the level of self-understanding can help us effect real changes in our present nature, for the two are very much related. Change one and we change the other, including what it has been attracting into our lives.

Before we can know a happiness beyond the reach of conflict or sorrow, we must ourselves be whole; for any happiness apart from self-wholeness is only half a happiness and must, in time, prove itself so.

Question: I know I have a confused and divided mind, so how can I get it into self-wholeness? Answer: Just as an electric fan cannot sort papers on a desk, giving them order, neither can the whirling mind produce Peace. To see the truth of this causes a kind of “self-disconnect,” and at once
