Negative states don't want to leave. They don't want to lead you to the end of a relationship with them. They want you to follow them so that they remain your guide, and essentially your god.

In this short talk, Guy Finley talks about how we are not intended to manipulate or control everything that we see within ourselves. We are instead intended to watch and witness what is being revealed so that a higher kind of reconciling force can act upon what has been disturbed within us.

Guy Finley explains that as your awareness of the natural laws that currently govern your actions increases, so does your ability to make choices based on higher knowledge, instead of being blindly guided by ignorance. Spiritually speaking, this is the beginning of the development of true free will.
