Journey to the Greatness Within
Publisher's Description: From the bestselling author of The Essential Laws of Fearless Living and The Courage to Be Free.
The Seeker, the Search, the Sacred is about the universal and timeless spiritual principles that lead us to a personal discovery of divine guidance and higher insight.
This is a landmark work by self-realization teacher and bestselling author Guy Finley, who offers it as compelling evidence that within every human being dwells a nameless Sacred Being that teaches us to live in the light of our own true selves.
In The Seeker, the Search, the Sacred, Finley presents passages from all the major religious traditions and philosophies to demonstrate how they all work in concert to describe different aspects of a single compassionate, loving, and divine intelligence.
When I began to teach classes on spiritual principles, I devoted some time at the end of each class meeting to pray for students and their loved ones. One woman asked the group to pray for the continued health of her sister, who had had cancer, but the disease was now in remission. At that time I had not heard the term “in remission, so I asked her what it meant.
“It means that the disease went away for now, but it might come back,” she explained.
The explanation made no sense to me then, and it makes even less sense to me now. The idea is that the disease is here and real, a prevalent condition, but it has temporarily gone behind a curtain and may pop out again. The notion was jarring to me because my understanding is that health is our prevalent condition and our natural state. When a disease occurs, our health is temporarily in remission, and will return when the temporary condition of the disease has been alleviated.
