How many times in your life have you acted not just against yourself, but perhaps against others because your actions were uninformed, and you were moved prematurely into a conclusion?

In this answer to a viewer's question, bestselling author Guy Finley explains that freedom from fear does not come about through imagining what that freedom is. Our task is to enter into the moment as present to ourselves as we possibly can, and then to allow the intelligence that is inherent in the awareness itself to strengthen our understanding of the true purpose of each moment.
Knowledge, regardless of its sophisticated nature, is a tool. It arises from and belongs to what has passed. As such it embodies, defines, and relates us to life through what we already know is true about the world around us. By definition, this kind of understanding is limited.
How many of us think that there is no individual action that we're ever going to take as a human being that's going to have global impact, even though all of us would like to be a leader or a hero?

Freedom from feeling inadequate. Freedom from being alone...."
Guy explains that everything that is created wants to live and will fight to exist, including fear and negativity. If you ever want to have a spiritual healing, you need to understand these types of forces that will do everything they can to ensure their own continuation, and essentially prevent a human being from ever finding freedom.
As life pours itself out in the stream of passing time, and we run into challenges seemingly greater than our ability to answer -- each of these encounters "asks" this question of us: "Are you willing to change (who you have been) in order to realize a higher possibility of yourself?" And though moments like these trouble us because of their uncertainty, here's why we should be very grateful...
The only thing that can happen to you when you're in the wrong place is a wrong thing. But even when you find yourself in a "wrong place" inwardly, you don't have to remain there.
Guy Finley reveals what we must do to change our experience of life and enter into a relationship with freedom itself.
