"Letting go" author Guy Finley talks about how, most of the time, we don't know what to do in unwanted moments other than resist those moments. Resistance to whatever pains us does not separate us, let alone liberate us from that pain. In truth it binds us to the unconscious nature that creates it. Become the witness to the consciousness instead of the captive of it.

In this answer to a viewer's question, "letting go" author Guy Finley talks about how there is no chance for anything to change for the better as long as we shut our eyes to events that run counter to what our minds say should be happening.
There is no consumptive negative state in the consciousness without resistance being the "goo" it grows out of -- something black and dark pulling and pushing on you.

We must learn what it means to become unfixed from negative states, and we will when we realize that the sense of self we derive from them is worthless. It's not based on anything real, and it has no permanence because with time all states pass. We value negative states because of the strong sense of self we get from them. This may be very difficult for us to see, but a strong light...
In this video, bestselling inner-life author Guy Finley explains how resisting something is the same as placing your attention on the very thing that you say you don't want.
In this short exchange with an online viewer, Guy explains that any avoidance of our inner condition actually solidifies both the condition being resisted and the confused sense of self that is created by that same unconscious resistance. There exists another order of awareness, a place of observation within us that is neither for nor against the condition that is revealed. What we need is simply the revelation of the condition and the consciousness responsible for it.
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...
How many of you are short fused? We'll say it in other words. How many of you have virtually no tolerance for anything outside of what you want? On a scale of 1 to 100 degrees, what is your acceptable range relative to meeting moments? Is it something like 2 to 98? Or is more like 78 to 79? That's about it, isn't it? This tiny little bandwidth, and if anything even threatens to...
