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

Cause all of me

‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections —-All of me by John Legend

We are all walking around with our perfect imperfections.  It is such a joy to realize that even what appears not so good is perfectly created and is totally ok.  Because all of me loves all of you even those imperfections are not really imperfect at all.  They are part of what makes you the perfect you that you are.  That unique something special that is us. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

It’s not much of

It’s not much of a life you’re living
It’s not just something you take, it’s given — Stay, performed by Rihanna

So many of us judge our lives as not enough.  And we are even harder on others.  We feel we must judge in order to be defined but we don’t actually have to.  It is simply something that we are taught that ultimately drags us into the drama of the world and out of who we are.  There is nothing we need to take from outside of us, no comparison that will make us more that needs to be made to achieve this goal.  Knowing who we are is achieved not by striving to overcome through comparing ourselves to others.  Becoming who we are occurs, like a gift, when we become still and realize that we are enough .  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Every object and

Every object and every person that we come into contact with is a mirror of our mental state.  For example you meet someone and you just don’t like them.  In this case they are demonstrating an internal resistance that is inside us.  They are not really good or bad, they are our mirror giving us the opportunity to discover more about ourselves, and because of that, awaken even more.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

We are infinite beings

We are infinite beings.  Yet for most of us this is a only a dream.  To begin to open to more of who you are, let the sensations that you feel from the world around you in.  Think of yourself as having a center that is infinite.  As you let the sensations from your surroundings into this infinite space every part of you is touched and transformed.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Most of us

Most of us are like ponds.  Everything that comes at us stays in the pond.  Eventually the pond may get clogged and overwhelmed.  As we allow ourselves to feel, we unclog the pond and eventually realize that we are are a river.  Now we can have motion in our lives, flowing to the ocean of potential where we can grow again.  Happy New Year everyone.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

As we embrace

As we embrace our openness, we have an opportunity to broaden its impact.  For example when you are put into a new situation say to yourself:  This is an opportunity for excellence.  As you feel it and let it open it will help to project you deeper into positive experiences.  Each moment then becomes an opportunity for more openness.  Enjoy and Happy Holidays everyone 🙂 ~Alain & Jody Herriott

In each day

In each day of our life we have two options: resistance or openness.  When we open we just enjoy the moment.  When in resistance try this; say to yourself “Thank you for showing me where my resistance lies”, and allow yourself to open.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

So what is Maya

So what is Maya?  It is the mind traveling in its own world making up reasons why things should be this way or that way.  What is peace? It is an integration of body and mind.  This action supersedes internal whys and offers you internal balance.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

People will find

“People will find transformation and transcendence in a McDonald’s hash brown if it’s all they’ve got.”  —Patton Oswalt, Zombie Spaceship Wasteland 

Isn’t it fabulous that we get to start wherever we are in our journey to transcendence!  The paths we take that unfold so perfectly before us are a gift beyond measure.  Enjoy the journey.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Thought for the Week

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

So much of our life is defined by stress, what we want and what we don’t want. The more stress, the more resistance we experience about everything we do.  As we unfold, through unwinding our resistance, we begin to realize that the less we resist, the more we open. In time we are living the maxim, “when nothing is done, nothing is left undone.”  Now we are balance, a never ending now of being. Enjoy the journey. ~Alain & Jody Herriott
