Overview

Consider what you usually think of as being the cause of pain or dissatisfaction in your life. Maybe a betraying friend, shaky finances, a difficult workplace, or perhaps a past issue that still punishes you? And why it is that with all you've done to shake this suffering out of your life, it still survives? Now think about those moments in your life highlighted by happiness. Why are these seldom-enough times so temporary? Why should simply enjoying life seem so hard? There is an answer to these questions that all of us have asked; a secret answer that at once dispels the darkness of a thousand defeats and that provides a way to lasting contentment and self-renewing happiness. Watch how quickly your whole life changes for the better after you discover this secret answer! Here's a hint. Everything hinges upon your awareness of this one simple truth: Freedom from what is unwanted by you begins with awakening to what is unseen within you. The enemy behind your life problems is not who, or what, you think. It does not live outside of you, but dwells within your own present mind. Without your knowledge, invisible psychological characters inhabit your inner being and make choices for you — choices that work against your real life interests. Applying this book's higher principles to your life helps you to expose and dismiss these self-compromising characters and reveals the truth about who you really are. The freedom you've longed for follows. You'll learn to align yourself with life's secret direction, which invites the greatest power in the universe to take your side. Welcome to the most extraordinary adventure of your life. You are about to meet and defeat the intimate enemy. Victory is guaranteed. As you learn the inside story about what's been defeating you, you'll escape the circle of self, shatter self-limitation, and discover a whole new kind of inner success! Written with Dr. Ellen Dickstein.

Meet the Author

Guy Finley's encouraging and accessible message is one of the true bright lights in our world today. His ideas cut straight to the heart of our most pressing personal and social issues—relationships, fear, addiction, stress/anxiety, peace, happiness, freedom—and lead the way to a higher life.

Guy is the best-selling author of The Secret of Letting Go and more than 36 other books and audio albums that have sold over a million copies in 16 languages worldwide. In addition, he has presented over 4,000 unique self-realization seminars to thousands of grateful students throughout North America and Europe over the past 20 years and has been a guest on over 400 television and radio shows, including national appearances on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, NPR, Wisdom Network, and many others. His radio program, "Guy Finley Live," is a live chat that airs monthly on HealthyLife.net as part of the network's "Visionary Celebrity Host Series." His syndicated weekly radio program is aired on several international networks including Healthylife Radio Network, WorldTalkRadio Network, and Contact Talk Radio International. His work is widely endorsed by doctors, business professionals, celebrities, and religious leaders of all denominations.

Guy's career reached this point through a circuitous path. Born into a successful show business family, he is the son of Late-Night TV and radio pioneer Larry Finley. His childhood friends were the sons and daughters of the most famous celebrities in the world. As a young man Guy enjoyed success in a number of areas including composing award-winning music for many popular recording artists including Diana Ross, Debbie Boone, The Jackson 5, Billy Preston, The Four Seasons, as well as writing the scores for several motion pictures and TV shows. From 1970-1979 he wrote and recorded his own albums under the Motown and RCA recording labels.

Throughout his youth, Guy suspected there was more to life than the type of worldly success that led to the emptiness and frustration he saw among his own "successful" friends and colleagues. In 1979, after travels throughout North America, India and the Far East in search of truth and Higher Wisdom, Guy voluntarily retired from his flourishing music career in order to simplify his life and to concentrate on deeper self-studies.

In addition to his writing and appearance schedule, Guy presents four inner-life classes each week at his non-profit Life of Learning Foundation headquarters in Merlin, Oregon. These classes are ongoing and open to the public.

Ellen Dickstein earned her Ph.D. in Psychology from the Johns Hopkins University and has published many papers on issues such as the development of the self-concept and the internal sense of what is right. After being awarded tenure at Dallas' Southern Methodist University, she realized that the genuine answers she sought did not lie within traditional Psychology and began her spiritual journey studying with noted self-development author Vernon Howard.

Currently, Ellen writes and directs an international self-study program for inner discovery.
