There are parts of our psychic system that reject the shocks -- the lessons needed for our evolution because they imagine they're already flying above the world of troubles. It is this mistaken sense of self that stands between us and true self-transformation. Nothing that resists life can hope to learn from it. Until we can embrace the lessons that ride into our lives on the back of events...
In this answer to a viewer's question, Guy explains that the task for us is not to try to suppress negativity through our own effort. Instead, the task is to watch, to be aware of the negativity so that its actual harmful nature can be revealed. Awareness already knows what to do with negativity without us having to think about it.
Do you have storms in your life that haven't passed? Storms that were formed when you were 4, 8, 12, 15, 20 years old? Pains, resentments, fears that remain in conflict in the center of your being? We live in a very peculiar state of being. We live with pain, heartache, grief, and fears that go on and on. And not only do they go on, but they actually tend to get worse...
In this short video, "letting go" author Guy Finley talks about how we need to stop relying on self-made images of a better future to rescue us, and instead wake up to enter into the living Now where we are already rescued.
In this short talk, Guy clarifies that we don't really need to move closer towards the light because we are actually already with the light and the light is with us. We simply need to wake up from the illusion that we have to pursue what is already here.
Topics Covered: "Made in the image of God" means that we human beings are the embodiment of all the forces that create and give life to all that exists.

Classroom Talk: 9/27/2020 - Before we can hope to know anything of Divine love - let alone realize an unconditional compassion towards one and all - there's something we must all know but, in truth, don't want to: humanity hurts; everyone suffers. But for those (of us) who see this burden - who would do our part to bring an end to this sorrow...
We must learn to struggle with our "self" all the time, because without awareness of the way we meet our life, of what meets life for us when we are just "gliding" along... then, in truth, what is it that meets life? The answer is... no one... just a host of habitual thoughts, feelings, prejudicial ideas, beliefs, and mechanical reactions. If we are not aware of ourselves -- right now, and in all..."
"Do you know why you want freedom? To know why you want freedom, you must know what you want freedom from. And most of us do not know that idea of 'freedom from' -- other than when we're in a bad relationship. What you want is freedom from pain. You want freedom from fear. Freedom from self-doubt. Freedom from feeling inadequate. Freedom from being alone...."
Student Talks: 2/21/2020 - Key Lesson: We are never closer to realizing the next level of our own higher possibilities than when, by the light of a new awareness we see some old "darkness" within us, and then agree that we can no longer be that which we have been.
Any true self-aware state must include the presence of a humility that tempers the temptation inherent in all forms of self-evaluation; otherwise, what we might call self-awakening is really just a form of secret self-admiration.
