In this answer to a viewer's question, Guy explains that setting so-called "boundaries" for yourself is the same as rejecting what the moment would reveal to you about yourself.

Topic: Start Using the Limitations of Others to Realize Unlimited Strength (9/22/21 Classroom Talk)
Topics Covered: The strength of our reactions does not prove that we are in charge of ourselves; Without honesty, spiritual success is not possible; Anyone who habitually exhibits a negative limitation believes there is something unique and special about that quality. They actually believe that the limitation is a strength, that there is something good in it; There is nothing natural about...
Classroom Talk: 9/22/2021 - Part 1: The real reason for impatience with ourselves, or with any other... has nothing to do with what, or who is blamed for it: impatience -- along with its dark fraternal twin, frustration -- is born of unseen resistance to the sudden appearance of a limitation, including what is required of us to remain conscious (of it) until it's transformed.
Student Talks: 8/13/2021 - Key Lesson: Part 1: Any sense of discouragement that wants to drag us down into its dark world, where it feeds on the feelings of hopelessness that it loves to create -- appears when, and as it does -- for a single reason: to keep us from realizing that there is no such thing as failure for those who will consciously walk into... and then through whatever may...

Topics Covered: In order to receive the truth that sets us free, we must begin to see the images that we have about ourselves that keep us in captivity; We get glimpses of something that reminds us that within us is an order of being that we're not the instrument of yet, but sense we could be; The more identified you are with something, the more asleep you are. Identification is captivity...
Classroom Talk: 6/30/2021 - Part 1: What is True always disturbs what is false. What is false never disturbs what is True. What is false is compelled to protect itself. What is True... is its own protection. Part 2: Who can possibly enlighten me as long as there's any fear of what I may see in the dark of myself?

Certainly, none of us would think to ourselves, "I wish upon myself these difficult circumstances," and yet the truth is it is through and because of these same unwanted moments that we are granted the opportunity to meet parts of ourselves...
