“I came across Guy's audio downloads about a year ago. Loaded some onto my MP3 player and listen regularly to them whilst having morning tea at work sitting out in the sun. They really do work on the negative and stressful thoughts bought on by daily life and work. Love them.”

Stop Being Stalked by Your Own Shadow

Key Lesson: The smaller one's character, the bigger the shadow it casts.

The Secret of True Character

Character is the foundation of a human being's actions. Character is what determines the course of our life, and it is also why the world wobbles the way it does, because this planet is filled with human beings who believe that making others believe they have character is the same as having it.

If you want to become a different order of human being, you have inside of you a true character that yearns to break out. You aren't meant to spend your days thinking about money or worrying about what other people are worrying about. You're not meant to spend your days serving yourself. You are intended to spend your days sacrificing that small self for the higher principle called Character or Consciousness. That means, regardless of how you feel about any situation, you put the Truth first instead of yourself.

Stop squandering your life! Understand as often as you can that you need to have one first, and that first is not something determined by the self that is created in any condition of the moment. If nothing else, every day, work to put the Truth first in your life. How can you put Truth first? Make an aim to watch yourself, and then be willing to stand upon what you see when you look truthfully at your character. Be willing to do without what you must if you see certain things that tell you that what you are embracing is destroying everything, including your chance to be a true human being. Do what you can do so that Truth can do what it's meant to do for you. It isn't hard to do. What's harder is to remain a human being without character.
