posted by Guy Finley

Who you really are—your immortal Self—doesn’t live in the past, and therefore cannot be punished by anything that happened there. If anything, the repeated pain of reliving whatever the problems may have been should show us that we’ve arrived in […]

Wake Up and Walk Out of the Bankrupt World

posted by Guy Finley

It’s Never Too Late

posted by Guy Finley

Let Go and Awaken to a Whole New You

posted by Guy Finley

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 […]

The Greatest Reward

posted by Guy Finley

There is no reward on earth, or even amongst the stars, equal to the realization of the divinity within you. Those who have awakened and attained this pearl of great value understand—with no sense of pride for their knowledge—that the […]

Learn Where to Look for the Extraordinary Life (Part 2)

posted by Guy Finley

The way our present nature looks at life around us — as well as everything appearing to move within it — is through our five senses. This means that as we are, the sum of our relationship with the world […]

Detect and Reject Despair

posted by Guy Finley

The secret purpose of that self-loathing nature in us – that wants us to suffer today for what we could not do yesterday – is not there to help us make straight our mistakes, but rather to ensure that we […]

The Sure Path to Self-Realization

posted by Guy Finley

There is no greater, more reliable teacher of true self-knowledge than intentional patience and, when married to a willingness to observe oneself through the stillness and sacrifice that such patience demands, there exists no swifter, more sure path to self-realization…

Enter The Narrow Gate

posted by Guy Finley

You may not see it unfolding, but here’s what happens the moment you take your eye off of seeing the whole of yourself: Some unseen part of yourself takes one step closer to falling into the pit of some pain […]

The Power to Dismiss Discontentment From Your Life (Conclusion)

posted by Guy Finley

Awakening to see this cycle of discontent for what it is not only empowers us to cancel it, but it also brings to an end the strain of living under the unseen contradiction in our consciousness: the hope that one’s […]

Increasing Awareness of the Present Moment

posted by Guy Finley

Question: What can one do to have a greater awareness of reality? Answer: A quart cup cannot hold a gallon of water. Don’t worry about “a greater awareness” but be as constant and conscious as you can towards the awareness […]

Enter the Place of Power

posted by Guy Finley

Before you can learn how to change your destiny, you must first realize that secret place within yourself where your own future is created. You must consciously enter that place of power where all of your life-choices are made for […]

Losing the Zeal for Self-Awakening

posted by Guy Finley

As strange as it sounds, it is natural at times to lose our zeal for awakening. This sense of self-loss is actually a necessary step along the higher path. For many years, a person can work for greater wholeness, for […]

The Secret Understanding that Makes Painful Events Disappear

posted by Guy Finley

The experience of every moment of our life is a direct reflection of our nature. We never experience anything that does not arise directly from our own inner life. Life always happens from the inside out. What we know and […]

Awaken to a Life Free of Aching

posted by Guy Finley

Work consciously to deliberately drop the names of your pains and you will also learn to let go of all the reasons you have for experiencing them.

The Birth of a New Life

posted by Guy Finley

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 […]

The Genesis of Love

posted by Guy Finley

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 […]

Answering Love’s Call

posted by Guy Finley

Our hope in prayer is to become one with the Living Light whose dawning opens the doorway to the Divine…

What it Takes to Ask for a New Life

posted by Guy Finley

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, […]

The Purpose of All Relationships

posted by Guy Finley

Spiritually speaking, all relationships serve one purpose: self-knowledge. Self-knowledge serves one purpose: awakening to the truth of one’s self. Awakening to the truth of oneself serves one purpose: dying to oneself. Dying to oneself serves one purpose: rebirth. And rebirth […]

The Awakened Heart

Reality is Renewal Itself

A Lesson in Love that Cannot Be Ignored

posted by Guy Finley

Question: Can we truly know God without realizing that Jesus Christ literally bore our sins on the cross? Also, is the time for repentance over when you die physically? Answer: Christ stated (in sympathy with Old Testament writers) that “the […]

The True Stages that Lead to Eternal Life

posted by Guy Finley

An awakened person is not reborn any more than an acorn awakened from its slumber by the touch of sunlight is the form it may yet become.  The one who is reborn, who is resurrected, as much resembles his or […]

The Real Cost of Awakening

posted by Guy Finley

The wish to remember the truth of oneself – to put God first – is meaningless without our willingness to actualize that wish before all else, regardless of its cost.

A Prayer for Real Strength

posted by Guy Finley

When we start to see that there is very little that’s constant in us, very little to be counted on in times of crisis (inwardly or outwardly), the tendency is to fall back into some kind of self-loathing or blaming […]

The Illusion of a Passport to Heaven

posted by Guy Finley

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 […]

Open the Lines of Heaven

posted by Guy Finley

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 […]

The Place of Peace

posted by Guy Finley

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 […]

Step Onto the Pathless Path

posted by Guy Finley

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 […]

Now Begins the Work

posted by Guy Finley

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 […]

Change the World Around You by Awakening to the World Within You

posted by Guy Finley

Question: You seem to make few comments regarding political action or defense from immediate physical threats. The message seems to be that resistance or effort to promote a change in a perceived problem is counter-productive and only prolongs the issue. […]

Dare to Follow the True Spiritual Life

posted by Guy Finley

Almost every day I receive a letter, an e-mail, or phone call from an aspirant who wants to know, essentially, the following: “What must I do to succeed spiritually?” Or, in a slight variation on that theme: “What’s the right […]

Find Freedom from What Wrecks You

posted by Guy Finley

Nothing is healthier for us than the beautiful 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: […]

Raising a Family on the Road to Enlightenment

posted by Guy Finley

Question: I think that I am on the road to enlightenment, but my thoughts would lead me to believe that only the holiest of holies could ever reach that state, and it is not readily achievable to a parent having […]

Seven Sure Signs of Spiritual Sleep

posted by Guy Finley

It is possible for the willing soul to awaken from its spiritual slumber, but such freedom has its cost: We must catch what compromises us, realize the fact of it, and then see how our identification with that unconscious character […]

Discovering Yourself Through Dreams

posted by Guy Finley

QUESTION Much work has been done concerning the use of dream interpretation to help us understand ourselves. Do you see a real value in recording and interpreting our dreams to aide our self-development?

Break the Cycle of Recurrent Fearful States
