“Your audio came to me by a mysterious coincidence. I had a public speaking commitment coming up, and I was terrified of it, but I knew that I had to do it. Somehow there was a Divine intervention that dropped this audio into my lap about two weeks ago. Your presentation is magnificent, and I am so grateful. It has opened up a whole new area of my life. I am 80. Thank you, and God bless you.”

The Truth About Temptation: A Short Lesson on the Lord's Prayer

Talk summary: In this podcast, Guy Finley talks about how an entirely new kind of inner freedom can dawn within us when we begin to understand that the happiness that we have been searching for all along is actually waiting to be found within ourselves.

Talk notes: There is a passage in the Lord's Prayer which states, "And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil." The evil that is referred to in this passage is the temptation to complete ourselves -- the urge to satisfy our longing to understand our true purpose in this life through thinking about ourselves.

When we begin to understand that it is possible for us to find real happiness and fulfill our true purpose without having to go into thought, then the painful struggle of trying to complete ourselves gradually begins to fall away. Instead we begin to participate in the present moment as a new person, and allow newness itself to become our life.
