Can you think of a way in which you regularly sabotage yourself? You sabotage yourself when "something" in you acts against yourself. Now, for most of us, we have a passing understanding of an idea like that because we recognize that we don't want to hurt ourselves. We don't want to hurt others. We don't want to be a burden to this planet. We don't want to do a lot of the things we do.
In this one-minute wisdom video clip, Guy Finley talks about what we need to do to have a truly abundant life that is rich with revelation.
Nobody begins self-study as an "A" student. In fact, real self-study begins with becoming aware of just how unaware we really are. Don't let this last thought throw you!

Is like saying we want to explore the depths of the ocean while reclining on a lounge chair somewhere near the shoreline.
Student Talks: 8/14/2020 - Key Lesson: Part 1: We can imagine almost anything save this one unimaginable exception: the dark walls that seem to close in on us in the midst of some unwanted moment are, in fact, nothing more than (parts of) a dark dream born of a mind so asleep to itself... it can't see it has unconsciously...
