    In this question and answer session, Guy explains that we are not meant to be the servant of a mind that believes conflict is the way to solve any problem. Seeing the part of us that finds a peculiar enjoyment in conflict is the beginning of separating ourselves from 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.

Our little think machine just gets geared up, and it starts to go. And it goes. Now, what is it thinking about? It's thinking about the trouble it's in and it's thinking about ways in which to get out of trouble...

    Classroom Talk: 1/15/2020 - We cannot run away from what we don’t want to see in ourselves, any more than a mirror can escape whatever is reflected in it. And yet, to SEE the truth of this fact (about our present level of consciousness) is the action of transcending it, along with its pain.

    Classroom Talk: 11/17/2019 - Part 1: Unconscious negative reactions feel intelligent because they are inseparable from some equally unconscious judgment that lends them their temporary "life."

    Our work is to consistently take pictures of ourselves, to be able to step outside the stream of the mechanical, comfort-seeking, falsely-contented self so that we can start to see ourselves as we are, and not as we imagine ourselves to be.

    Human beings walk around in a kind of self-made suffering that is the expression of something in us that is afraid of seeing ourselves as we are. We've come to think that avoiding a unwanted fact about ourselves is the same as escaping the effects. Our lives should be a ceaseless realization of where we miss the mark, because that is the only way to transcend the idea that...

    Most of us like sitting by a river and watching the water or anything else come downstream and then disappear in the distance. When watching a river, we don't usually focus on one thing in the stream and then resist it as it floats by. We are intended to be the observer of the stream of our interior life in much the same way that we would enjoy watching a river.
