Have We Been Lied To? Find Out In The Essential Laws of Fearless Living
The Essential Laws of Fearless Living
The #1 Bestseller on Amazon “The Essential Laws of Fearless Living” by Guy Finley, points us in the right direction to find the power to never feel powerless again. Finley gently reminds us of the power we possess within and provides the wisdom to cut through the heart of the matter. This book is an extensive collection of specially selected nuggets of truth.
Guy Finley shows us that everything that happens to us in life is a gift. It provides the next step in the process of our perfection – if we will only see it as such.
At the start of each chapter is a Key Lesson and at the end are special Lessons in Review or special insights intended to help you actualize the new principles just presented.
The Central Theme of Fearless Living
The central theme of Fearless Living is that our thoughts lead us into illusion, and then we are misled into interacting with those illusions instead of with real life. The book explains that reality itself is on our side and in our struggle: truth is our ally, and its light empowers us to succeed, which means we cannot lose.
Finley’s visionary wisdom and questions found in his new book serve as a mirror of what stands in our way. Through one of many Key Lessons in “The Essential Laws of Fearless Living” you will discover that thinking can no more produce true peace of mind than throwing a stone into the center of a pond has the power to quiet its ripples.
What I love about this book is the vast use of aphorisms and insights that speaks to the deep places within you. It is a book to be read slowly, to absorb every word, so to soothe the soul and allow healing to bring out the best in everything you do.

A Divided Mind
The mind asleep to itself is a “divided” mind. Most of us already know something about this strange state of ourselves. One part of us wants what another part of us feels guilty about wanting; or we can’t stop thinking about something that we hoped – by coming to possess it – would grant us peace. But, as you will discover, in “The Essential Laws of Fearless Living” this divided mind of ours is even more devious than we suspect.
Something within us is creating a buffer of some kind – a barrier that stands between our need for liberation and the higher life lessons that help both catalyze and create this transformation of consciousness.
Your work to understand these ideas in the book are worth their weight in gold.
See Through False Beliefs and Be Free
The following is a list of six false beliefs that betray all who look at their lives through these popular lies. The more conscious we can become of how these conditioned beliefs compromise our right to live without negative states, the more freedom we will win from them.
- We are only as valuable, or worthless, as other people agree that we are.
- We are responsible for the happiness or unhappiness that other people feel.
- We can change what happened yesterday by reliving it today.
- We must tolerate those people who have agreed to live with negative states.
- We can only be as productive as we are willing to push ourselves through life.
- We are as special, and important, as we feel stressed by our life.
My Favorite Key Lessons In “The Essential Laws of Fearless Living”
The true depth and breadth of the heart is measured not only by what it can hold, but also by how willing it is to let go.
The true individual is no more concerned over what others may think of him or her than is the sun troubled by people complaining that it’s too hot!
Knowledge without spirit is like finding yourself on a cold night with all the wood in the world and not a flame with which to light it.
Success born of anything less than hard work comes with the fear of losing what was never rightfully gained in the first place.
Reliving some past pain with the idea that by doing so you won’t have to go through that suffering again is like throwing money out the window so you won’t spend it foolishly later on.
Calling on anxious thoughts to check the rising tide of some fearful feeling is like trying to stop a landslide by throwing rocks at it!
Using thought as a tool to resolve the troubles that thought stirs up in the mind is like trying to use your fingers to seize, sort, and settle dust particles that are dancing in a sunbeam across your living room floor.
We are not created to spend our lives in fearful preparation over what may come – but rather to use whatever comes our way, each moment, to help us perfect our understanding that God is good.
If we work each moment to practice kindness, patience, and persistence – doing so in grateful remembrance that each breath we take is a gift – here’s what we’ll find: the power of being present in this way ensures that each of our “tomorrows” dawns with more Light than was seen this day.
The only thing that really troubles us about others, that puts us in conflict with them, is what we would have them be!
Feeling sorry for yourself is like slipping off a boat at sea and, just as you’re falling into the water, grabbing the anchor to take with you so you have something you can cling to in your time of trouble.
One way to avoid at least a few unpleasant conversations is to never again talk to yourself!
Yes, “all good things must come to an end,” but this is only half the story. It’s equally true that what is Good in life is always just beginning.
Real fearlessness comes with knowing that you have everything you need to succeed in the same moment that it’s needed.

I have been a subscriber of Guy Finley’s e-newsletter for a good 5 years. Because the Life of Learning Foundation has limited storehouse capacity, they often need to clear out the older books, cd’s, dvd’s and audio tape albums to make room for Guy’s latest work. They are offered to his subscribers for up to 80% off the original selling price. Because of that, I have a tremendous collection of Guy’s work. I am a fan of “The Life of Learning Foundation” for life!
Guy Finley on Living Without Fear
A Message From Guy Finley From The Fearless Living Video
"You'd never invite into your house someone who walks thru the frontdoor and then throws trash everywhere, steals your silverware and as he leaves, torches the place. That's what happens when we invite fear into our lives. We don't know that we invite it into our life because if we did we would never agree to develop a relationship with what ruins all of our relationships. Fear spoils whatever it touches especially when it comes to relationships between two human beings." ~ guy finley ~
The Gentle Brush of Truth That Sets Us Free
Key Lesson – Darkness thou art a subtle friend; if one knows thee full, one knows thee naught.
If we could only remember – in the Now – the fact that there always come to us those telling moments when nothing that mattered before matters as it once did, when the things formerly prized are seen as being virtually without value to us, then …
Perhaps we might know our lives painted upon a broader canvas … where our days would not be filled with their shallow strokes of petty self-concerns, but with the gentle brush of what is True and Timeless.
And should we - for the sake of being present to ourselves in the Now – be able to see within ourselves this broad new scale of Being, then we would also know that Life itself has never weighed in upon us so heavily as to hurt us, rather …
It was we who, in ignorance of Reality, carelessly attributed weight to events that were without substance, causing ourselves to fear and suffer nothing less than the fervent magnitude of our own imagination. ~Guy Finley~
