We were not born with the persistent negative, self-doubting, self-limiting thoughts and feelings most of us carry around. Those limitations are not part of our “original equipment.” In the words of bestselling author and beloved teacher Guy Finley, “When you realize no else on this earth can be like you . . . that no other soul may know the beauty, sorrow, light and darkness you alone are given to see, then you will no longer want to be like anyone else on this earth. You will, at last, be the fearless individual your heart of hearts has called you to be.”
There is a world of wisdom in this small gem of a book. Guy Finley is a master at opening our eyes, ears, and hearts to the plain and simple truths of this life. We are not our sense of inadequacy, our compulsions, our defeated thoughts and feelings. We can choose the fearless path because we were, in fact, born fearless.

The Essential Laws of Fearless Living is a step-by-step manual for all who aspire to realize their ultimate potential as a human being. In its seven chapters of forty concise essays, Finley explores deeply personal and meaningful ideas, revealing the secrets of the universe itself; but he does so in a way that makes the journey fascinating, compelling, and comforting at the same time. A great hope fills the heart that the untold mystery of human existence has not only been revealed, but solved. Then, most importantly, at the close of each chapter readers are given specific insights and practical exercises that empower them to make real and lasting changes in their lives. Loneliness, stress, anger, and fear are replaced by a contentment, ease, compassion, and freedom that never fade away.

That chronic, nagging sense of discontent, that sneaky feeling that something is missing from life, that secret yearning for “something more” can all be healed. In Let Go and Live in the Now, bestselling author Guy Finley brings the great Wisdom Teachings of centuries past into our lives in an intimate, accessible way. Each chapter tackles a hurt that keeps us from experiencing inner peace and happiness and includes a brief essay and a contemporary teaching story followed by exercises to help readers incorporate the teaching into everyday life. Each chapter ends with “Ask the Masters,” a question-and-answer format with such historical and modern-day spiritual masters as Buddha, St. Augustine, G.I. Gurdjieff, Henry David Thoreau, Peter Matthiessen, and Jeanne Guyon.
“It only seems as though there’s something more important for you to do than just quietly be yourself,” writes Guy Finley. Imagined heavens never last, but eternal principles empower readers to live in “the now.” From the first story of Katie, her broken heart, and the doctor who shows her how to heal it to the very last lesson of Paul who relocates himself from the city to the country and still can’t see “the forest for the trees,” readers see themselves in these eloquent retellings of ancient spiritual principles.

The fact that this longing was placed inside of us means that its natural fulfillment exists.
Our deepest wishes -- prayers of the heart -- are made to be fulfilled... once you know how to ask for them. You just need to learn the secret to making prayers that work!
Make your deepest wishes come true.
The way to forge a connection with the celestial energies that grant us our wishes is not commonly known. Prayer, as it is usually practiced, contains little power to grant us even mundane everyday requests -- let alone fulfill the deep and true desires of our heart.
But you can know the true way of practicing authentic prayer.
In Guy Finley's modern classic, The Lost Secrets of Prayer: Practices for Self-Awakening, you will learn how you can experience, personally, the presence of a benevolent guiding force in the Universe that is always ready and willing to help you win in life in a whole new way.
The powerful yet simple practices offered in this spiritually transforming guide will help you touch higher levels of self-awareness, where you'll discover that everything you need to be happy is already present within you!
