Letting Go with Guy Finley

One thing that makes negative states so difficult to drop is the illusion they create within us that no choice exists for us other than to cave in to their punishing presence. But, in truth, it is not we who are without choice in such moments: it is the negative state that has no choice but to disappear once we remember that no darkness is greater than the Light.

When we can bring enough awareness into the appearance of some fear, anger, or despair so we see that the power these punishing states hold over us is no greater than our unconscious fascination with them… in that same moment we will realize a new kind of freedom… one that is not born from winning yet another fight with darkness, but with actually departing from its weary world.
