Learn to Be the Instrument of Life
Talk summary: In this podcast, Guy Finley talks about the immense difference between a life spent accumulating possessions, and a life in which an individual allows something higher to take possession of his or her life.
Talk notes: The better the instrument, the nearer the actual replication to the original principle. We are meant to be sensitive instruments whose purpose is to let God's hand play His notes through us. And in fact we are created to actually enjoy the "sound" of reality that is being played.
As a result of the natural enjoyment of the notes that are being played, we can become for others a reminder that there does exist a completely different kind of life -- a life that does not rely upon any kind of physical or psychological possession for its contentment. In being attentive to the present moment, you have allowed God to take possession of your life. And the more you are willing to do whatever it takes to become a properly responsive instrument, the more you will discover that everything you have been wanting and waiting for already exists right where you are.
