“Guy Finley's Essential Laws of Fearless Living is a masterwork of eternal value. If you purchase only one book by Guy Finley, let this be the one... it will transform your life!”

“The problems that most people have in life are not from 'lack of power' but from the abuse/misuse of the power that they already have. Mr. Finley shows us how to nip this in the bud, by raising our altitude to the right level. This seemingly simple act transforms our minds and outer lives.”

— Joseph Polansky, editor, Diamond Fire Magazine

Unmask the Secret Self-Love and Let the Truth Set You Free

Key Lesson: Until our wish is to be present and responsive to the real needs of friends, family, and even strangers -- more than we want to be seen as important in their eyes -- we serve no one... not even ourselves.

Serving the Greater Good

The great circle of life is imbued with a unique kind of "gravity" where all that lives is drawn to join itself to a larger body of life. And, even though unable to do otherwise, we can see how all of nature's creatures work together in this way for a common good: They seek and serve each other in order to complete and perfect one another in a whole that's greater than the sum of its parts.

The Masters Speak...

A human being is part of the whole, called by us "Universe"; a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and feelings as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures, and the whole of nature in its beauty. --Albert Einstein (1879-1955, Germany)

Happiness does not come into being when you seek it; it is a byproduct; it comes into being when there is goodness, when there is love, when there is no ambition, when the mind is quietly seeking out what is true. --J. Krishnamurti (1895-1986, India)

In humility is the greatest freedom. As long as you have to defend the imaginary self that you think is important, you lose your peace of heart. As soon as you compare that shadow with the shadows of other people, you lose all joy, because you have begun to trade in unrealities, and there is no joy in things that do not exist. --Thomas Merton (1915-1968, France)

For one human being to love another human being: that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been entrusted to us, the ultimate task, the final test and proof, the work for which all other work is merely preparation. --Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926, Bohemia)

By the accident of good fortune a man may rule the world for a time. But by virtue of love he may rule the world forever. --Lao Tzu (ca. 570-490 BCE, China)
