See what the experts say about Guy Finley's work.

“In the tradition of the medieval troubadour, consumed by a flame of unrequited love, Guy Finley shares an intimate portrait of his own unfolding in Apprentice of the Heart. With lilting prose and lyrical verse, the author fashions a harmonic symphony of universal resonance in celebration of Divine Love.”

— Sara Robinson, Founder, Conscious Creating

“Guy explains the difference between really living and just going through the motions, and urges us never to settle for less than the real thing. If where you are in life is not where you want to be, Guy will help you close the gap.”

— Dr. Arron Grow, Personal Best Radio

The Meditative Life


Talk 1: The First Step to Being Still

  • Feeling sorry for yourself is like slipping off a boat at sea and, just as you're falling into the waters, grabbing the anchor to take with you so as to have something you can cling to in your time of trouble!

Talk 2: The Quiet Beauty of Being Inwardly Balanced

  • When, before our inner eyes, we always have someplace better to be, or that feeling we must make something more of ourselves, we miss seeing 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 a field of possibilities whose riches are not only immediate, but everlasting.

Talk 3: Release Yourself from the River of Dark Dreams

  • Whenever we can remember that we would rather smile about what life brings us than suffer over it -- that our natural preference is happiness, not hurtfulness -- then in such moments of being mindful of what we love most... can't we also strive to remember how much better it is, for everyone, to brighten the life of another rather than to darken it in our forgetfulness?

Talk 4: Stillness: The Sum of Meditation

  • If we would only dare to slow down long enough to examine why we run life's race at the pace that we do -- which is to win for ourselves all that we can, as fast as possible, with the least amount of pain -- then we would have the bittersweet but self-liberating shock of seeing that most of the very reasons we have for living are the same ones that are killing us.

Talk 5: Being Present to Pure Presence

  • If only some great law required those who are ever speaking critically about the work of others to assume a portion of that same work -- in order to make it better -- then the world would know a sweet new order of silence, and those who "do" in life would no longer have to bear the bitter sound of those who won't.

Talk 6: Find Freedom in the Field of the Present Moment

  • How strange it is that we resent carrying on our backs the pointed opinion of others, when it is we who give this barbed thought its power to trouble us. Think not? Then let us ask: what possible suffering can there be in what another thinks of me, unless I am holding the same thought as he?

Talk 7: The Unassailable Kingdom of a Quiet Mind

  • Sooner put out a fire with jet fuel than gain the upper hand on some anxious state by throwing more agitated thoughts into its turmoil.

Talk 8: Find the Feeling of Now

  • The desire for greatness is not the same as the love of it -- for such a want causes us to compare ourselves with what is great in others, and from the seed of this secret contest springs conflict. But love of greatness embraces the Goodness from which it springs -- and such a love is never conflicted for having found a light that burns brighter than itself, any more than a spark in a fire contests the flame from which it is thrown.

Talk 9: Letting Love Lead You to Silence

  • Whenever unhappiness lingers on -- so much so that we start believing darkness has won the day -- we may find new strength to start life over in this bright truth: the only cause for our continuing sense of feeling so bound and restricted is that we have agreed -- without knowing it -- to live in a world smaller than is our potential to let go of whatever may be limiting us.

Talk 10: Enter the Secret Center of Yourself Beyond Thought

  • Here is a great spiritual truth: The only time we ever "fail" at anything in our lives is when we walk away from a challenge before we've allowed it to teach us its lessons.

Talk 11: Use This New Light to Enter the Meditative Life

  • It isn't hard, at times, to love others for what they are. Such relationships are on easy terms, and we receive what we give in a fair measure. But to love another for what they may yet be -- to give them the patience and kindness that lets them flower -- this is a different task altogether. For to love a person for what he or she may be -- costs us; and to pay this coin we must, ourselves, run in debt to who it is that we hope to be... an act that requires our payment in every moment, and with all those we meet.

Customer Comments About This Product...

I recently downloaded the meditation series and I just wanted to let you know that the section on knowing yourself has changed my life. I have been constantly searching for the one person who could know the depths of who I am and could love me for myself. The revelation that the only person to truly know me is myself and of course the God who created me has changed my life. I have been listening and reading your work for a couple of years and at times have struggled to get the meaning of some of your teachings, but have found they have given me a sense of peace when I have persevered. So thank you, your teaching has been a great help to me and I hope if I am ever in the state I will come to your Foundation.

— Sue R., Minneapolis, MN
