Inspirational Quote Guy Finley's Inspirational Quote (2/20/2019)
  • Posted Date: February 19, 2019

Part 1 It's impossible to change any moment that we complain about because -- for one thing -- the unwanted moments over which we complain do not even exist apart from the level of consciousness that always finds fault with their appearance.

The passage of life's events, including the innumerable relationships through which they are revealed, can either grind us down, or serve to remove our rough, sharp edges; so that whether we feel punished or are polished by our relationships in life all depends upon how well we understand their invisible purpose.

Any "good" reason we have for why some weakness lives on in our character is inseparable from the unconscious level of self that offers it (to us). This means any time we feel compelled to justify our actions -- and agree to do so -- we're complicit in the continuation of that weakness excused. Our inner task is to see these "reasons" for what they are in reality: the act of an unconscious, divided...

Short Talk The Joy of Self-Knowledge
  • Posted Date: February 10, 2019

The thrill of the pleasures that we seek in order to alleviate a pain or avoid emptiness never lasts. The only kind of true joy that stands the test of time and lasts for eternity is the joy of setting out on the path to discover the truth that sets us free.

The degree to which we judge others, and would make them pay for their shortcomings is inseparable from the false belief that our nature is somehow different, superior to those as seen through the eyes of (our) disdain. In truth -- save for the rarest action of a pre-paid grace -- it is not our so-called "character" that differentiates us from those we judge as being "less" than we...

Short Talk How Do I Know What’s Good for Me?
  • Posted Date: February 7, 2019

In a world where everything's upside-down, where what seems to be "good" really isn't, you must learn to discern what's true from what's false. The more you try to keep everything in place, the more it falls apart, and you ending up running right past your own life.

  • Posted Date: February 6, 2019

You probably have heard about the idea of "the straw that breaks the camel's back." Whether we are aware of it or not, we all fear how we are going react when we reach that point. This is where patience comes in... not patience with something outside of ourselves, but patience in watching and bearing the strong reaction that feels like it needs to be expressed.

Part 1 Before we can have a conscious relationship with what is Timeless, before we can know a "peace that passes all understanding," there must come a series of (conscious) shocks that prove the truth of the following to us: any imagined time, power, or possession to come -- by which we are forever set free from worry and fear...

Short Talk Use Every Argument to Awaken a New Way to Love One Another
  • Posted Date: February 3, 2019

When someone says something that is unkind or cruel, it's because they have perceived something in you that has produced a reaction in them. They are helpless to act otherwise, which stirs a similar reaction and helplessness within you as well. If you will meet those moments with the wish to see your own unconscious reaction instead of blame the other person for theirs, a new possibility arises.

  • Posted Date: February 2, 2019

A famous artist had a hit record long ago containing the lyrics, "I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter, and make believe it came from you."

Short Talk Catch and Drop the Compulsion to Talk Endlessly About Nothing
  • Posted Date: January 30, 2019

How much time and energy and breath would we save if we were aware of the part of us that wants to speak before it starts speaking? Much of the talking that we do is brought about by an unconscious nature that compels us to speak so that it can experience more of itself. By observing ourselves we can catch the anxious part of us that demands we say something in order to relieve the pressure.

Short Talk Love Opened My Eyes
  • Posted Date: January 28, 2019

Anything that currently darkens our lives can be met with higher understanding within us, so that it is properly placed into the greater order of things and becomes a part of the eternal "I Am." That means that every form, every encounter, every moment, no matter what it is, has the capacity to cleanse a human being of the impurity that wants to name the moment as being corrupt or wrong.

Ignoring what any unwanted moment asks of us -- resisting, or summarily dismissing the "question" inherent in our awareness of its disturbance -- guarantees the following: these moments will return, and keep returning... that is, until we agree to realize -- and so release -- the unconscious parts of us responsible for their repeated appearance.

While it's impossible to be free of "my" psychological body, including the elements inherent in the ceaseless appearance of its conditioned reactions, I am free to change my relationship to that body and -- in so doing -- do the interior work of liberating myself from its equally ceaseless identification with its own self-created dark states.

Spiritual patience is a priceless reconciling virtue that's learned, and earned in one way, and in one way only: by awakening to -- and then agreeing to consciously suffer -- what our impatience does to everyone and everything... not just around us, but within us, as well.

Short Talk The Proper Use of Ambition
  • Posted Date: January 14, 2019

Wanting to be free of anything because it troubles you is a form of ambition, because the assumption behind the ambition is that I have the power and the authority to shut this down. And you have neither power nor authority - what you have is a small gift from God that will allow you to see what ambition does to tear apart your soul.

Next time we wonder how it's possible that someone doesn't like us, let us take a deep breath, and take a look at how we feel about them in that same moment. If we're honest, we'll see and understand two things at once: first, and perhaps most important: there are, in fact, parts of our nature that are not very likable...

Part 1 Human beings are a unique creation in the celestial scheme of things: unlike the untold billions of other life forms teeming upon the earth -- whose nature is one and the same as their character, an open and shut case -- our nature, its character is not fixed. What does this mean to you? If you understand it... Everything!

You have more going on in you than can be described, but you must work to be fully here, fully open, in a conscious remembrance of the whole of yourself.

Part 1 There may come a time when it feels as though love has abandoned us... Or, that it is so far above us as to be out of reach; nevertheless, of this you may be assured: love is always with us; it never leaves us: it can't... Any more than a heartbeat can live apart from the heart that sounds it out. Which means the love we hope to find -- to know, keep or to grow -- as the case may
