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

Our true self

“Our true self is being who we are.”  —Lailah Gifty Akita

There is nothing to reach for, nothing to achieve to be your true self.  As you unwind your seeming limitations, as you dissolve the dross of your life, there you are—whole, intact and present in being.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The point of power

The point of power is in the present.  —Anonymous

 This is what we can affect, our present.  It is the fulcrum point of our existence. When we allow ourselves to live in this most available of states all options exist and no matter what we choose to do we are amazingly effective.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Everything has its

Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.  —Helen Keller

 Yes, everything has its wonders.  Seeing the infinite in every experience, feeling whole in each moment, being who we are and reveling in that experience.  Wonders indeed!  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Stillness offers an

“Stillness offers an experience of being and a recognition that being . . . my essence . . . is a part of all Being, all Essence.”  ― Nancy J. Napier

This is so very true.  The ability to be still is a natural part of the evolution of feeling.  As we feel more and judge less we integrate body and mind.  This action results in stillness, no striving required.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Resistance and openness

Resistance and openness. An opportunity and a reward. Looking out the window at a rainy day feeling resistance to the vision, I feel, open and surrender to the fears within me. The wind blows and the sky clears and I find myself once more in the clear blue sky of me, free within the endless possibilities of of an ever-evolving yet deeply present now.  ~Alain and Jody Herriott 

You teach people

“You teach people how to treat you by what you accept.”  ―Diamond Drake, Imagined Love

 This is about opening to what is around you, letting it in to be transformed.  This not only affects how you are treated but what experiences you bring into your world as well — lovely, elegant and amazing.  ~Alain and Jody Herriott

If you’re tired

If you’re tired of drama in your life, just quit being the actor.  Author unknown

 In our life, we are actors in the play that we are in.  Conscious of it or not, we are playing that role in order to maintain the drama we find ourselves in.  Through allowing ourself to feel we unwind this drama.  We realize that we can change our role and the world around us changes too.  We can do this with any role we are playing; all it takes is  the willingness to enter the feelings we are experiencing. Freedom is on the other side.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Drama is life with

“Drama is life with the dull parts left out.”  ― Alfred Hitchcock

Funny but true.  We see the world, we look at our experiences and judge it. It says things are too slow or too fast.  The mind is now engaged and we leave the now.  We leave our ability to be truly present.  This evaluative capacity that the world says we should use for everything is what takes us out of the moment and separates our body and mind.  Feeling reintegrates us.  This is why we do it, to unwind the drama, to become aware of who we are and become whole even for the dull parts.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

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
