Distinct moments come along the upper path when it feels as if a dam has burst in one’s heart; wild waters of unknown emotions race into and through the canyons and once-sealed chambers of consciousness, washing clean all that has […]
The great journey leading to the immortal Self does not begin with fact but in faith untested. It is the journey of faith alone that reveals the fact of the Divine, much as a flower proves the unseen seed from […]
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 […]
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 […]

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 […]
In order to nurture our own awakening, we must first see the need to let go of those parts of us that we sense no longer serve us. This new kind of self-awareness is the interior “seed state” needed to […]
One of the gifts of being human is that our individual potential far exceeds the boundaries of our (animal) body, which, like all natural creations, must serve the general laws it’s been created to obey. We have the possibility of […]

In this short talk, Guy Finley explains how our sincere wish to act rightly in the moment will attract the authentic higher help that we need to change.
The spiritual life is a genesis. When the seed awakens it isn’t to herself, but to the life that now stirs her. As only one, she slept. As two, she knows life. As both she leaves her dark world and […]
What is immortal? Love, God’s Love — that which is not connected to a form. It isn’t a person’s face, it isn’t a passage of music — it is that which produces those things. We are intended to be changed […]

Over the years of living on a small mountaintop in southern Oregon, I have learned many valuable lessons from observing the wildlife that shares the forest area in which my house sits sequestered. The truth is, along the spiritual path, […]
Eventually you must see that any action your mind gives you to console you about anything is stealing from you the possibility of being a reflection of the Divine. Stand unconsoled so the true consolation may make itself known to […]
Asking God to help you — without first doing the interior work of seeing and admitting the truth of yourself to yourself — is like sending someone else to church or temple for you to pray for your transfiguration.
The idea of being “born again” or “saved” has become almost completely meaningless today. True self-transformation, the birth of a New Mind that Christ called “metanoia,” is not something that can be handed out by priests and ministers for the […]
Question: What does it mean to be “saved” and how does one ask for it? Answer: Salvation is the old giving way to the New because we no longer want what we once were. In that quiet passing comes that […]
Guy Finley explains in this short talk how the mind that opens up to the soul that is trying to express itself reflects a radiance from which everything in the universe benefits.
To not want any particular moment is to ensure that you will find yourself in a similar situation again. Resistance rules out receptivity, and only an open mind can be renewed.
It simply cannot be stated enough: you have every reason to be encouraged about life. Just look around you. God shows himself everywhere; and in all things, he shows there is no death. Where do you see the end of […]
Spiritually speaking, all relationships serve one purpose: self-knowledge. Self-knowledge serves one purpose: awakening to the truth of oneself. Awakening to the truth of oneself serves one purpose: dying to oneself. Dying to oneself serves one purpose: rebirth. And rebirth is […]
Why does jealousy rise again? Why does wishing that this wasn’t this way and they weren’t that way have to be like that? How many times does that rise again? We know that resistance somehow is always rising. It is […]
Do you get angry almost every day? Feel bitterness or jealousy? Tear into yourself? Do things that you know are destructive to yourself, that hurt other human beings? We rise again every day. Something in us is resurrected moment to […]
There is a ceaseless call in us, between the seed of this individual that we presently are and the tree of life, the Christ within that we are intended to become. What do you think it is inside of you […]
Part 1 Nothing can go right for us in any moment gone “wrong” until we awaken, realize, and renew our relationship with the power of a higher set of possibilities. Part 2 To know that every moment (regardless of how […]
Who is going to be the one who stops the wave of darkness on this earth? We are intended, each and every one of us, to be the light of the world — the point at which, in this world, […]
Many, many people today believe there is nothing for them to do other than to just think about themselves through the truths they have been taught and parrot, and their passport to heaven is assured. Such thinking is not only […]

The realization that you are never alone — except by the choice of something in you that prefers the pressure of isolation over the contentment of Higher Communication — opens the lines of Heaven within you. *** Heaven is not […]
True Peace is not a time to come, any more than the Kingdom of Heaven is a place apart from our own Awakened Conscience. This means that any impatience we feel over what we perceive as prohibiting our peace from […]
As the sleeping mind — driven on, as it is by unconscious desires — awakens to see that the only thing thought can do is make circles, it slowly stops seeking. The divine longing of the heart to know unconditional […]
There can be little as extraordinary as our discovery that we have been “lost” in a world of illusion, wandering and wallowing through the kingdom of thought where — in the vain attempt to prove we know what it means […]
Just as winter yields to the onset of spring, as surely does the moon submit to the sun, so too are we created to give ourselves to that Greater Life that alone can make us evergreen and fill us with […]
There is only one way, and one way only that any of us will ever know the real meaning of Christ’s life, and that is… to share in his death; this means we must give up what he gave up […]

Question: I have trouble accepting the traditional interpretation of hell. Would a loving God really condemn His children to eternal suffering, or do we always have a chance for redemption? Answer: Try to realize, to begin with, that the fear […]
Recently I have seen a few real questions about what is popularly termed spiritual “quickening,” so I thought I would post a few thoughts about the same. We need never be afraid of whatever may take place within us as […]
To find an unknown God and an unknown Love is the duty of individuals who are weary of the old, known ways. In this podcast Guy Finley reveals the need to persist in our wish for True Love, God’s Love, […]
The kind of prayer most commonly understood and practiced is asking for what you want and being temporarily filled with — and renewed by — both the self making that request and the anticipation of what is requested. Examples of […]
