The Gift in Your Crisis: Close Encounters of the Truthful Kind

Oct 24, 2016, 10:11 PM

Guy Finley calls crises “Close Encounters of the Truthful Kind.” He suggests that crises reveal ways in which you have lied to yourself and force you to transcend yourself by letting go of bad ideas. These bad ideas might be along the lines of “I don’t have a problem with alcohol” or “I can’t live without this relationship” or “it’s my job to save people from themselves.” Crises create change. Listen to my interview with Guy Finley to learn what gift you might find in a crisis. If you want to live in that life that is beyond your fears, listen to it. You might even want to make a practice of listening to it. Most of us know we are limited by our fears. This interview will help you quite simply figure out how to stop your negative imagination from ruining your life. Guy Finley is the best-selling author of more than 40 books and audio albums on self-realization. He is the founder and director of Life of Learning Foundation, a nonprofit center for self-study located in southern Oregon where he gives talks four times each week. Guy is a faculty member at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York and is a regular expert contributor to Beliefnet and the Huffington Post.
