Guy Finley: I Dare You: To Live a Positive Life!
by Debbi Dachinger, Dare To Dream Radio Host, Wed. 11am PT www.healthylife.net
I recently interviewed Guy Finley, from the VISIONARY SERIES Radio show Guy Finley Live! on HealthyLife.net. We had a brilliant conversation. I dare you to accept Guy’s dare!
Debbi: What is the greatest lesson you’ve learned?
GUY: Our life is not about “winning” the way we envision such victories. When we learn, as we are all intended to, that our life can only be fulfilled from the inside out, then we gradually weary of thinking that we can satisfy our soul with ‘stuff.’ To learn this we must be thrown into conditions that reveal to us what we are in each moment. This kind of testing by life teaches us how to let go of who we have been so that we can realize another, Higher level of self that awaits us IF we will agree to go through what we must.
Debbi: What is something you are deeply grateful for?
GUY: For me this life is about two things. First, life is about letting go. We come here with nothing and we leave only with what we have come to understand about ourselves and our Creator. Second, life is a preparation for love. Everything that happens to us is for our higher education, a course in becoming conscious of what really matters and what doesn’t. We are not alone in this journey through life, and never have been. What we seek, seeks us. What we find, wherever we look, is always ourselves. And the longing that sets us in search of love, is put in us by Love itself.
Debbi: What’s the most important thing you do to keep your life positive?
GUY: My first and greatest happiness is rooting out the source of unhappiness in myself. Then it is from the true contentment that comes with becoming a more whole and happier person; that we have the resources and the energy it takes to help others realize the truths that we have. The Principles I teach are Timeless and they do not “belong” to me anymore than the sight of a grand sunrise can be any person’s possession. However, the most natural thing in the world is to want to tell others about something you have come across that is beautiful, life-healing, and truth confirming. Call it a romance with Truth if you will, and when we are in love we want everyone to share our joy.
Debbi: If you could DARE the listeners to do anything that will create positive change for them, what would you dare them to do today?
GUY: So you might say that when all the other roads taken through this life have proven themselves powerless to deliver the wholeness they promised, there’s only one path left: it’s called “Time to find the truth about yourself.” Right this moment, and in all moments thereafter – whenever we can remember to do so – let us break into the chain of our own thoughts in order to see what we have been identified with…without our knowing it. This one act of deliberately dropping being identified with the thought-self, in favor of seeing it in action, delivers us into a place where the stressful problems of the moment before, no longer have the power to drag us into their weary world. And if we will *dare to let go* like this, even when our own thoughts try to frighten us for choosing so, we will soon see within us the birth of a whole new sense of self that cannot be shaken by any trial or
trouble because its secret nature is the Ground of Reality itself.
