    In this short exchange with an online viewer, Guy explains that any avoidance of our inner condition actually solidifies both the condition being resisted and the confused sense of self that is created by that same unconscious resistance. There exists another order of awareness, a place of observation within us that is neither for nor against the condition that is revealed. What we need is simply the revelation of the condition and the consciousness responsible for it.

    Real knowledge is a free-flowing river, ceaselessly pouring down from the Heavens into this world. We may learn to drink from it, freely... But only after we realize that to try and take something from it -- other than what we need to drink in the moment of our thirst -- is the same as poisoning ourselves, and never knowing it.
