“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.”

Nothing Teaches You More Completely Than Taking Complete Action

Key Lesson: In any given moment we must give all that we have to whatever we may be doing, for only complete action on our part has the power to teach us completely those lessons that life would have us learn.

The Only True Answer to Any Anxiety

Our one true responsibility in life is to be awake and receptive to the eternally unfolding present moment, even as we give our full attention to what is revealed within us for its ceaseless passage through us.

Bringing our full attention to the moment, while remaining aware of all that is going on within us, serves to unify all of our parts, and places us in a conscious relationship with the whole of us. In this light, anything dark -- some part of us seeking to exist at the cost of all others -- is seen for what it is and must return back into the realm from which it came.

One of these dark forces that seems to serve, but that steals from whomever it can deceive is anxiety -- a negative state produced by a divided mind as it rushes to close the gap between these two (self-created) opposing thoughts: where I am right now, and "where" I want to get to, which is the same as what I want "to become," i.e., at peace, content, safe, etc.

This imagined pleasure of "arriving there," or in "getting it done" is the secret opposite of the pain born in not wanting to experience what is at hand. Understood properly, what these facts mean is that the only "answer" there is to an anxious state is to not answer it at all...but to see the state for what it is: an illusion.

Do what you are doing; be where you are. Give your full attention to the duty of the moment, and the feeling that "there isn't enough time" will disappear. The prison and the pain of psychological time dissolves as you withdraw your attention from the divided mind that creates its demands.
