    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.

    Real knowledge is a free-flowing river, ceaselessly pouring down from the Heavens into this world. We may learn to drink from it, freely... But only after we realize that to try and take something from it -- other than what we need to drink in the moment of our thirst -- is the same as poisoning ourselves, and never knowing it.

    In this answer to a webinar attendee's question, Guy explains that trying to prepare and rehearse what we are going to say or do in a moment is the same as living in fear of the moment. Instead what we need to do is make the intention to see everything that we can so that we can leave those moments as wiser, more awake human beings.

    We are always in school. Our lives are intended to be dedicated to self-study, which would mean that we are always present to ourselves. Being a student in the true school of life means that our studies are instantly applicable to our lives.

    Most of humanity is terribly afraid of death. We avoid the very thought of it every chance we get. But with self knowledge we can learn all about what this life on Earth is for, which is the same as no longer fearing what we call death.

    The root of our suffering isn't because of outer conditions but because of a misunderstanding of our existence and its purpose. Everything in nature that suffers does so for a purpose and cause greater than the individual creatures, while human suffering serves the self that creates it so it can be glorified.
