If you think

If you think of each problem in your life as a drop of water falling into you and sending ripples in all directions, you begin to get the idea of how deeply each issue in our lives affects us.  Most of us try and contain the ripples, putting up dams and walls so that we feel safe.  Yet this does not create safety, it creates blockages.  When there are enough of these we are left with an illness that seems to spring from nowhere but really is a result of one too many dams.  Then things just start leaking all over.  Feeling allows us to cross the water while also dissolving the dams.  At first it feels uncomfortable but eventually, like a stream that has been clogged with debris for a long time, your life begins to regain a sense of flow and rightness.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

I was sitting

I was sitting inside and contemplating allowing.  I felt the state I had and then went outside to the mid-morning sun shinning down on me.  It was like being nourished by an infinitely caring and giving parent.  It simply offered and I simply let it in.  This experience has forever changed my view of allowing, surrender and acceptance.  What is your path to this experience?   ~ Alain & Jody Herriott

The moment one

The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass it
becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself. 
~Henry Miller
By letting go of our preconceptions and embracing a state of Wonder, we allow a whole new world to be revealed.  ~Alain and Jody Herriott

In the language

“In the language of an actor, to know is synonymous with to feel”  ― Konstantin Stanislavski, Creating a Role
We live life as an actor in our drama. This is the nature of playing a role in this life.  We can choose to change our role and break free into being amazing.  This requires feeling; it is the entry point to everything.  Dare to take a stance and move through your feelings–therein lies your entry point to change.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

There are three

“There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one’s self.” Benjamin Franklin

 We are taught from an early age try really hard in life.  Most everything we read and hear compels us to overcome something in order to achieve this “goal”.  But knowing oneself is about being, not working hard.  It is something you get as you unfold the resistances that show up in your life.  This is so counter-intuitive that many find it hard to believe.  What an amazing creation, that makes us reach when reaching is what is in the way.  Again, we encourage you to feel; it is the entry point to freedom and knowing oneself.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

You speak of

You speak of your fears, I hear your opportunities.  You speak of your limitations, I hear what you might do next.  Every limitation, every fear and every sense of lack is an arrow pointing at salvation.  The only real question is are you willing to enter the unknown and be reborn?  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

People don’t want

“People don’t want their lives fixed. Nobody wants their problems solved. Their dramas. their distractions. Their stories resolved. Their messes cleaned up. Because what would they have left? Just the big scary unknown.”  ― Chuck Palahniuk, Survivor

This is so wonderfully true.  But you see as it truly is the entry point to the unknown it is full of possibility.  We choose to go here, to enter the unknown and spread our wings and fly for this is where true freedom lies.  —Alain & Jody Herriott

The eye–

“The eye— it cannot choose but see; we cannot bid the ear be still; our bodies feel, where’er they be, against or with our will.”  ― William Wordsworth, Lyrical Ballads
Life and the feelings within it are constantly being stimulated; you have the opportunity to open your senses and embrace what you feel.  This path brings inner peace, balance and greatness.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

We are made

We are made up of patterns, some are habits from our parents.  Some are from our teachers and still others from friends.  These patterns gradually become habits and we tend to follow them because they felt so right then; whether or not the still do today.  You can unwind these habits.   Feel and take back your power from these limiting patterns and in so doing find a whole new amazing you on the other side.  Dare to be amazing, you are worth every moment of the effort.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

You crewe your

“You create your own universe as you go along.” –Winston Churchill
This is it!  This is exactly what we do.  Though we may deny that we are doing it everything around us is a creation of our consciousness.  If you find yourself in a universe that isn’t what you want; then feel your way to freedom and create anew.  Every moment in the universe you find yourself in is your entry point.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
