  • Posted Date: May 13, 2021

There do come to us in our lives, for any one of innumerable possible reasons, certain conditions that challenge the very fabric of our being. Certainly, none of us would think to ourselves, "I wish upon myself these difficult circumstances," and yet the truth is it is through and because of these same unwanted moments that we are granted the opportunity to meet parts of ourselves...

  • Meeting Date: May 09, 2021

Admitting to ourselves we are powerless to make permanent changes in ourselves is the true beginning of rising above all that troubles us about ourselves; for any and all such unadorned confession is the invisible entrance into another, higher order of being that is transcendence itself.

  • Posted Date: May 06, 2021

Following is a small excerpt from a "fireside chat" between Guy Finley and Dr. Ellen Dickstein as they explored the topic of The Power to Release Regrets and Get Over Guilt. Guy: We don't "learn" the way that we think we learn... which is by reliving things. No one learns anything by reliving a situation. Ellen: This reminds me of something you said that I found very interesting...

Peace of mind is not some “place” we can rush to; fulness of heart is not a possession to be claimed. We can only realize that these Divine gifts -- of a quiet mind and overflowing heart -- have already been given to us: an interior discovery which may prove to be the most difficult thing we will ever agree to do in this life.

Special Lesson Learn to Receive the Whole of the Moment
  • Posted Date: April 29, 2021

Every moment has a voice. The present moment is a voice. The moment is always communicating. It is the ground of communication between worlds, and it turns out to be the communication too. Have you ever been outside, lost in thought, and then suddenly seen something beautiful? Did not that moment of beauty communicate with you a quality that you weren't...

Every truth ever discovered -- each new light that will ever burn bright -- already exists in our consciousness. All we will ever know and share about love, humility, compassion, and sacrifice -- the secrets that will reveal and then resolve old sorrows -- awaits us within ourselves. Hidden in this truth is our great promise, both as individuals and as a race of beings.

Special Lesson Cross Over the Threshold into True Self-Wholeness

The attempt to "save" ourselves -- to rescue and release the troubled "me" -- without first understanding just who and what this nature is that would save itself from its suffering, is the first real threshold over which the sincere aspirant must pass... since the presumption on the part of the seeker here is that he or she knows what's wrong with their life...

  • Meeting Date: April 18, 2021

Being able to realize, and then release one's resistance to any unwanted moment does more than help to change the “dark tide” of that event; it reveals that within us already dwell the untroubled “waters” of a celestial harbor: the timeless shelter of an eternal Self that becomes the same as our own... but only as we remember to "leap" into the Now in which it forever dwells.

Special Lesson Open Wide and Start Realizing a Life of Higher Possibilities
  • Posted Date: April 15, 2021

How many of you are short fused? We'll say it in other words. How many of you have virtually no tolerance for anything outside of what you want? On a scale of 1 to 100 degrees, what is your acceptable range relative to meeting moments? Is it something like 2 to 98? Or is more like 78 to 79? That's about it, isn't it?

When you don't -- when you consciously won't -- express some negative state, you are literally asking for awareness of a higher self. Here's why... As you don't express that state, you become conscious of yourself as the ground upon which it is breaking as well as the presence of that visiting state.

  • Meeting Date: March 28, 2021

In this answer to a viewer's question, Guy explains that the task for us is not to try to suppress negativity through our own effort.

Awareness already knows what to do with negativity without us having to think about it.

There is a nature inside of us -- a product of this world physically and psychologically -- that does not want to change.

Special Lesson Discover the Safe Harbor of Higher Self-Knowledge

What happens when we see things about ourselves that we don't want to see? In order to avoid looking at itself, the mind will seize on the anger, impatience, grief, loneliness, or anxiety it has seen... and it will try to explain it.
