Explore inner terrain

What does it mean to explore our inner terrain? Within us there are sensations that are naturally present. We get used to this and as we age we expect the sensations to stay the same or we begin to expect them to be less comfortable. This may be due to previous injuries or expectations associated with old age. The art of feeling begins to give us a more conscious awareness of these attitudes and how we are holding. Feeling these sensation sand processing them can markedly change our approach to living and reframing our world. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Most of us fear change

Most of us fear change, yet without change we never evolve. Our inner feelings, or more specifically, the sensations within us are often feared too. This fear is what keeps us from being willing to change. When we allow our sensations to be felt and to evolve, we find greater and greater balance. The more we apply this approach to our lives the more we become happy and whole. ~Alain & Jody Herriott.

Each moment is unique

Each moment is unique and linked through sensation. Many think of these sensations as fraught with discord and concern. What if instead, they are the arrows pointing us toward the walls of resistance in our minds and because they are felt, they are also the entry point to change. Through feeling and allowing the sensations to change we unwind and arrive at harmony and balance.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Constant change

We are in a state of constant change. Our inherent nature is to both run towards and yet resist change. While change is always with us, we can be in a space of balance, wholeness and peace. This peace is not stagnant, it is a dynamic integration where Being is experienced. All it takes is the willingness to feel the subtle nuances within us, allow them to unfold and the rest is simply there. Being only needs the willingness to feel.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Breathing sensations

Notice your breathing sensations. You may find that every breath is anticipated and expected to supply the same outcome as the previous one. What if how you pay attention to the sensations allows you to experience them from a totally different perspective? Simple variations in attention offer us immense changes. Take a moment to breathe and sensate and let each experience present itself. Now being present can occur. Enjoy. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Search for who we are

The search for who we are and what we should do is often on our minds. As we feel the sensations within us, these internal conflicts begin to drop away and bit by bit we discover we are able to make good choices, learn from our experiences and finally realize we are enough, sufficient to the day and our life.

Enjoy the journey. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Feel, evolve, become

If you allow yourself to feel and act as if whatever you are feeling could pass through you like a gentle breeze, the sensation will evolve, change and become more balanced.  This opportunity arises with each experience that comes your way, from the exquisite to the mundane.  Play and enjoy the opportunity. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Sensation and experience

Sensation, what is it? It is that subtle experience inside us that leads many thoughts and associations within us. Often, sensations are repressed because they lead to emotions that are uncomfortable. However, if they are allowed to surface and pass through without comment from the mind they are balancing and nurturing. Allow your sensations to surface and be experienced and presence simply is there.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Dancing and Awakening

….and those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.  Nietzsche

When awakening many things will fall away and some will be added.  Those that are added do not require a memory, analysis or to be taken care of.  They will exist because you are no longer resisting their presence.  For you are no longer dancing to the illusion, only your song.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The Quiet Mind

When our mind is quiet, we are in harmony in our world; nothing is pushing us.  When our mind is quiet there is no conflict to push us out of balance, things arise and we deal with them, things end and we are equally at peace.  Feeling the sensations that are inside us, allowing ourselves to gently feel them allows them to change, unwind and find a new balance.  This unwinding again leads to the quiet mind.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
