Letting Go with Guy Finley

Question: Ever since I learned about the law of attraction, and have experienced it myself, I have stopped reading newspapers and watching news on TV because I don’t want to give my attention and energy to the conflicts and discord in this world. I would rather focus on feelings of peace and happiness. However, I feel like this is making me ignorant. Is there value in keeping abreast of current events, no matter how disturbing?

Answer: It is the quality of the perceiver that determines the nature of what is perceived and what will come of the relationship between the two, and whether there can be a “healing” — as in further integration — or more chaos and conflict. This means that when one listens to the news, everything depends on the level of self that is taking in the impressions. If we see something ugly, hateful… and respond unconsciously with resistance and resentment, then — by a process of “negative attraction” — we unknowingly strengthen that cycle of conflict and misery for all involved; resistance is negative attraction.

If, on the other hand, we are awake to ourselves… and allow the impressions to be received and used accordingly by our awakened awareness, then not only do we add light to that world now perceived within us, but we are changed ourselves, as well, through this same process.

Do not fear anything… meaning do not allow the fear in you to reject the evidence of itself in the name of something “light and positive.” That whole mindset is sheer madness, and ultimately corrupts the mind deceived into such conditioned practice. Your intuition is good here… follow it; persist with your wish to be free, and let it be with you in all moments… to meet all that you do as part of the greater liberation of all beings (and that includes your thoughts and feelings).
