    Topics Covered: Self-acceptance is self-realization. The rejection of a moment is the same as resisting a moment of revelation; There is intended to be a release in each moment... if we are willing to accept the revelation in it; Conditions do not create conflict. The conflict is already there before the condition, and before we even know it. We come into the moment holding onto...

    Classroom Talk: 7/3/2019 The more we consent to see that whatever we've imagined as needed from this world to make us feel whole, and then sought after in some equally imagined time to come -- is no closer today than in any time before it -- the nearer we are to attaining a holiness realized no other way: by agreeing, consciously...

    Classroom Talk: 11/14/2018 - Here is why rushing from place to place -- from thought to thought -- is the same as going nowhere at all: in one's constant haste to reach the end of some self-spun story -- where he dreams he will, at last, claim the peace he imagines awaits him there -- he runs right by the truth he must see...that is, if he wishes to be set free: there is no story he can tell himself that doesn't develop,...

    The real source of resentment toward others is not due to some power we may think they have and hold over us; rather, it arises from a secret weakness within us that keeps us believing that someone else holds the key to our well being.

    Question: I know it's a mistake looking to someone else for a sense of myself, but how can I keep from giving myself away? Answer: What good is any feeling we may have about ourselves, if it only lasts as long as others agree to it? Seeking and receiving approval from others is like sitting down hungry to an imaginary meal. You're invited to eat all you want, but no matter how much im...

    Guy Finley explains that the part of us that tries to feel better about itself -- by seeking approval from other people -- is itself the source of the disturbance that we feel. Awareness of this fact allows for a natural separation and release from this lower nature within us that looks outside of itself for consolation.

    Question: I don't know why sometimes I feel so much resentment toward the very people whose approval means the most to me. It just doesn't make sense. When these times come, not only am I unsure of why I am acting the way I am, but I don't even like myself. It doesn't add up! How can a person be in charge of his own life one minute, and in the next minute find it in someone else's hands? What'...
