When suddenly -- through a sense of similarity -- I'm made present to some positive, uplifting quality outside and within myself, I am happy. I lend myself to it without doubt. But in moments I am introduced to something negative inside myself by an event that I don't want, I have to find a reason for it being there.
Have you ever been in the midst of that very personal sense of peace called, "sitting in front of the TV with a nice pizza?" Then the phone rings, or a neighbor drops by, and... boom! Your slice of heaven is replaced with simmering resentment toward the person or event seen as disturbing it.
Every relationship that we have in our life -- our contact with each person, place, and event -- serves a very special, if yet to be realized, purpose: it is a mirror that reveals things to us about ourselves that can be realized in no other way.

Real spiritual growth is a kind of passing; it is the old giving way to the new because you no longer want what you once were. In that quiet passing comes the Self that was always there before (within), but that you are now at last communing with. Every single longing, every prayer you utter is for what is felt to be...
Whenever we will put ourselves on the side of what we know is true, then Truth takes our side, lending us what is noble, needful, and divine.
In this short video, Guy Finley talks about why anything that we are not aware of -- both internally and in the external world -- affects the way we feel and directs our actions accordingly. Becoming conscious of our interior state as well as our immediate external environment allows us to see tension and anxiety that is present within us without letting it take us over.
