People are always talking

People are always talking about what is wrong, where harmony is lacking and where it seems like the world is against them.  But these very things are the arrows pointing at where we are holding onto our drama, where we are caught so to speak. So now we can go on complaining or we can feel.  The complaining we do allows us to stay in our old state, enjoying the same things over and over and making no headway in life.  The art of feeling starts us on the journey to freedom and a whole new life.  This is both the solution and the problem.  People want change but only if they can stay in their old habits that are the cause of the problem.  They fear the change will be painful.  If they would only take a chance they would find it is glorious.  ~ Alain & Jody Herriott

Everything we say

Everything we say and do is an act of power.  It creates an action that reverberates throughout us and those that we interact with.  Much of what we do, say and are is not necessarily conscious but buried beneath the surface like an iceberg. Yet there is always a surface that is showing and affecting us deeply.  As we realize this we become watchful and often make up rules about the need to be vigilant.  This is a limiting way to do it that is fraught with drama.  Instead, feeling the sub-currents of sensation that these acts of power produce is the path to freedom because we no longer are trapped by our power.  We are instead, set free.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The un-manifest

What does it mean to join with the unformed, the un-manifest reality?  It is to sense and join with that undefined place where all creation springs forth from.  Yet this action has no form, no relationship to what we see around us.  But all it takes is a slight nuance of attention and it shows us form.  The Tao te Ching says: ….form that includes all form, subtle beyond all conception; you can’t know it but you can be it.  Just realize where you come from.  This is this essence of wisdom.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

What does it mean

What does it mean to join with the all, the manifest reality?  To feel each molecule of us connected to every other molecule, appearing to be separate but actually indistinguishable from ourselves.  Quiet, unlimited and without end, a journey and a conclusion all in the same breath.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

They both listened

“They both listened silently to the water, which to them was not just water, but the voice of life, the voice of Being, the voice of perpetual Becoming.” —Herman Hesse, Siddhartha

Water in motion is like the stream of life and consciousness.  It is the very nature of the awareness of being.  The motion is in us and even beyond us.  It is an interconnected flow.  When we stop being, this stream slows or stops.  Feeling will start it once again. Embrace your stream and flow. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Going into oneself

Going into oneself, feeling and going further and further, in a sense, into the infinite of “me” leads to change.  The shift in state and consciousness opens a bit further.  The avenues of self open more.  We get used to a new state in the process which then offers us the opportunity to open further.  What felt like beyond what we could imagine is now our new platform to spring from.  The really amazing thing is we don’t even need to spring, we just take the next step and once again know the place for the first time.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Sitting here feeling open

Sitting here feeling open, endless possibilities surrounding me.  Words don’t seem enough to describe this state of being.  It is there for all of us.  How do we excite you, entice you enough to feel?  We watched the movie “Song of the Sea” the other night.  The kicker was that when we hide our feelings we turn to stone. The act of giving us back our feelings is what gave us life and even brought back the fairies and more to life again.  This is why it is worth going into our feelings.  To return us to life once again.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

I was driving

I was driving in the car today, watching the world go by, noticing that everyone was living their view of reality.  I opened, felt the vastness of each individual and within that the continuity of life.  Everyone’s hopes and dreams flowed through the filter of belief systems.  I thought, what a marvelous play we find ourselves in.  As I felt the opportunity for each individual to awaken I was amazed at the unlimited potential we all have.  All we need to do is move from need to openness and we will arrive at a true sharing of consciousness and our world will evolve into harmony and bliss.  — Alain & Jody Herriott

Reading a story today

Reading a story today it said “Never hurts to believe in something bigger than you.”  It made us realize how often we look beyond ourselves.  That we are not enough.  But we are infinite beings.  While it may seem that we have to go beyond ourselves to realize our vastness it really isn’t necessary.  Within us is every answer.  All we need to do is feel and we can touch infinity and ride it all the back to who we are.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Thought for the Week

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

Most everyone that is on the path to self knowledge (the art of being) is doing so from the perspective of trying to achieve it.  Interestingly, it is this attitude that most holds us back from arriving at “Being”.  We must also remember that it is an evolving process, not just an end result. Many believe that we will arrive and that will be it.  In our experience, this is not the case, we are a constant evolution of awakening.  Today’s understanding is tomorrow stepping stone to more awareness and due to its subtlety, more Being.   Enjoy the journey.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
