Inspirational Quotes From Guy Finley

Displaying 21 through 40 of 3027

  • Until we learn how to ask ourselves right questions -- in the right way, and at the right time -- not only will we be unable to find real solutions to our suffering, but the very manner in which we formulate the questions we ask ourselves will serve, secretly, to keep us in a cage of our own making. (1/31/18)

  • Until we stop trying, in vain, to fill the empty moments of our lives with all of the distractions we pursue to quell that ache, we will never see, let alone realize this same sense of emptiness -- that we now resist -- is full of Light, a Living Awareness that neither fears nor wants for anything outside of its own Native Wholeness. (1/28/18)

  • Trying to escape the painful effects of spiritual ignorance is like hoping to lose your shadow by running away from the sun. (1/26/18)

  • Part 1

    Whenever we act from an incomplete understanding of the moment, the action we take must be equally incomplete. So, enact what we may in this way to resolve what disturbs us, we can never realize the peace we seek because -- by their nature -- incomplete actions always create incomplete results.

    Part 2

    If you won't let love touch you, it can't help heal you. (1/24/18)

  • Life -- this moment and every moment -- is a school for the education of the soul. At its heart is an invisible core curriculum, a kind of celestial "program" with one great purpose: to help us realize that behind each of the life-lessons that comes our way dwells a divine, just, and loving Intelligence that wants us to be one with its life. (12/16/16)

  • The growth of our soul rarely unfolds in a light that we recognize as such. Many times darkness is the medium, sorrow the seed, and the subsequent humility conceived in these the divine garden in which flowers our soul. (12/12/15)

  • No one finds the Kingdom of Heaven, awakens to realize one's true Self -- by whatever name one may give to this celestial level of Being -- who fears to seek, to see, and to fully realize... the truth of his or her present level of self. (1/21/18)

  • Learning what it means to take a deliberate step back from our reactions to life is the same as learning to walk past those parts of us that want us to believe our only choices in that moment are those presented to us from the content of these reactions. (1/19/18)

  • Looking for the meaning of any experience by taking thought about it is like focusing your attention on the single thread of a magnificent tapestry and hoping to understand the story it tells by analyzing that one thread. The story is so much bigger than that and... so is your true Self. (1/17/18)

  • The grand illusion and, in the end, the unseen source of psychological fear and pain is our unconscious perception of disquieting moments that "tells" us we are not responsible, let alone accountable, for the unwanted experiences that come our way. However, the "perfect love that casts out fear," along with its pain says otherwise, as follows: our experience of life, whether for its beauty or bitterness, is a ceaseless revelation of the role we've played in the creation of life leading up to that moment. If we want a different, happier experience of life, then we have to learn how to experience these unwanted moments in a holy New Way. Such knowledge gives birth to "truth that sets us free." (1/14/18)

  • Identifying with any kind of negative thought or feeling for having realized, inescapably, the fact that you are spiritually asleep is itself, a manifestation of the same level of mechanical self over which you now mourn. (1/12/18)

  • There's only one way to stop being deceived by the empty promises of others -- including those produced from out of your own desires... And that is to know that nothing promised to you -- or by anyone -- has the power to "add one cubit to your stature." (1/10/18)

  • If you will learn to tend to every thing that appears in your life in its time, then it won't be long before the whole idea of being anxious over anything will just quietly give way to this ceaseless revelation, accompanied by its peace-giving realization: there is nothing more important for you to do, no other place for you to go... Than to be right where you are, doing what you're being given to do in each and every passing moment. (1/7/18)

  • There is no such thing as a "bad day"... only our inability to see the Good in it. (1/5/18)

  • Truth is Imperishable; its timeless kingdom is untouchable. Therefore, the more truthful we can be with ourselves -- especially as concerns our present level of being -- the more we enter into a living relationship with Truth's Imperishable realm... wherein (we too) become untouchable by the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune," and find ourselves beyond the ravages of passing time. (1/3/18)

  • Part 1

    When, before our inner eyes, we always have someplace better to be, or a feeling that who we are just isn't good enough, we are blinded to the presence of two great truths: First, all imagined destinations are dreams whose promised fulfillment fades the nearer we draw to them... And secondly, that where and who we are in each moment is, in fact, a field of possibilities whose powers are ours to gradually incarnate and perfect.

    Part 2

    Only what is in balance can reveal what is not, while whatever is imbalanced is powerless to restore balance to itself. (12/31/17)

  • Nothing in reality is fixed; the illusion of being unable to transcend some unchanging nature within you is the work of unseen resistance to the ceaseless transformation that is the matrix of Real Life. (12/29/17)

  • You cannot make yourself whole anymore than a wave can make an ocean. But, you can rise above the waves of frustration, that tempest of anger whose soul-eroding pain would have you believe that you are more than you can be in any given moment. (12/27/17)

  • The power to incarnate, to be a living expression of any Celestial Character begins with our realizing its temporary absence within us. Real action is instrumenting its return, whatever the cost. (12/24/17)

  • Learn to turn the things that you don't want to do in life into deliberate conscious actions, and it won't be too long before you'll want to do the things that you've always tried to avoid. (12/22/17)
