We live in two worlds, the wold of mind and of feeling

We live in two worlds, the world of mind and the world of feeling. When we let the world of feeling blend with the world of mind we experience the world as a totality. A wholeness is here. It is not a desperate flick of fulfillment but a deeply supportive and nurturing experience. Through feeling we experience wholeness, without it we are only a shell of a being. When we have the integration of body and mind then the two worlds blend and we awaken to a quiet mind and experience an unlimited self. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Story books are a lot like our life.

Story books are a lot like our life. Some are complex and some are simple. Some give us joy and some bore us or even scare us. They are also excellent examples of the drama of life. That is, they exemplify, in a microcosm, how we experience life in general. And just like choosing a book to read, we can choose how to live our life. The unwinding of locked emotions and points of view is the entry point to rewriting our stories. As each issue arises that seems to limit our “new” story, we process our feelings and the new story is allowed to unfold. Happy creating to you. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

All our lives we have been taught

All our lives we have been taught to try hard, that this is the way to achieve a fulfilling and productive life.  We disagree.  The need to work hard is the model that society has trapped us in.  As we learn to feel and integrate body and mind we realize a completely different way to live.  We unfold into right choices and find ourselves fulfilled and successful. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The only way of finding the limits

“The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.”  Arthur C. Clarke

And so we go beyond the boundaries that society has talked us into following.  We choose instead to feel and in so doing find out who we are.  We then experience the ineffable state of oneness that transcends all intellect.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The mind is like a kid in a candy store

The mind is like a kid in a candy store. It is constantly searching, even striving for more.  Always eating and never resting; it doesn’t even realize it is the source of its problems.  The mind has been taught to ignore the feelings inside its feedback system, the human body.  However, these feelings inside us are the entry point to balance.  When we are allowed to experience our feelings at the signal level, the sensation level, we achieve balance.  The mind learns, with a bit of practice, that feeling is what sets us free and shows us the path to bliss. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The Tao te Ching says: I am like an idiot

The Tao te Ching says (we are paraphrasing): I am like an idiot, my mind is so empty…..I am different from ordinary people, I drink from the infinite.  How can one do this if the mind is empty?  Because when we stop over-focusing we realize we are the flow of everything and now we ARE.  We understand Being and let the unfolding of events move through us.  Now we are present, constantly fed and nurtured.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Every experience in our world

Every experience and each thing we interact with in our world is part of the definition of self, of what we call “me”.  Many of these things and experiences seem limiting.  They don’t have to be, but through habit we stay in the same old rut.  Mind says: stay with what is familiar, ignore the feelings within you that something is wrong, and you will be safe.  The problem is that we are not safe, we are only used to the rut we have been experiencing.  When we allow feeling to join the mix, we gradually remove the walls of our old ruts and we again become free to live in balance and harmony.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Have you ever noticed, when we feel, we are motion

Have you ever noticed that when we really let ourselves feel, there is a sense of motion within us?  On the other hand when the mind thinks, the motion is stopped.  From this we learn that feeling creates movement, and too much mind creates stops.  Movement is the beginning of freedom and stops are what keep us locked in place.  We encourage you to feel; the movement will set you free and return you to Being.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Most people will tell you about their dreams

Most people will tell you about their dreams and in the same breath tell you about their limitations.  We choose to tell you about your dreams and how to become them.  In reality they are already yours, they are simply behind the fears that you have placed in your way.  The Tao te Ching says “if you would become whole, be partial.” In effect, the process of feeling the limitations (that which makes us feel partial) allows everything to unfold and you will be there.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

When we hold tightly to a thought

When we hold tightly to a thought or a belief with the mind we make an issue inflexible or unchangeable.   As we lighten the intensity of our focus, we allow for the possibility of change.  As we do this, we sense motion within us and change naturally unfolds.  One can take this to the nth degree and feel: I feel the boundary of what I call me, I allow it to unfold and in so doing become ME.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
