The body is every bit as intelligent as the mind

The body is every bit as intelligent as the mind. Its communication is subtle, gentle, and while it may appear difficult to understand, its language is sensation. The mind is constantly pushing on these subtle sensations. The mind hides this subtlety beneath its over activity. When we allow ourselves to be aware of the subtle sensations and let them surface, the mind begins to relax. As this occurs, everything comes into harmony, and being is the result. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Presence don’t leave home without it

Presence— don’t leave home without it. Funny phrase eh? Most of us go out the door to begin the day and are leading with our heads. We forget about our bodies and the associated sensations as they seem too subtle or too much trouble to pay attention to. In reality we really should allow ourselves to feel throughout our bodies as the day begins. In this way we arrive at our destination fully integrated. We are more effective in the work place and we connect with our coworkers as the day unfolds in balance and harmony. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

We have all heard the phrase “Life is an art”.

We have all heard the phrase “Life is an art”. Yet, how many of us truly experience it in that way? When we allow ourselves to feel at the sensation level, these feelings become the brush stroke for each encounter. This light inner tickling of sensation gathers us up onto our canvas and unlocks the amazing painting that is us. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

As we witness the incredible dramas

As we witness the incredible dramas that are taking place at the moment, Texas, Puerto Rico, Las Vegas, it is very easy to get caught up and really lost in these experiences. The mind turns them over and over and keeps triggering the same feelings and we experience ourselves as trapped in this intensity. While that is certainly how most people experience these catastrophes it is not the way we have to. We could choose to unwind the sensations underneath the mental drama and become centered. Now we can deal with the situations effectively and compassionately. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

We live in two worlds, the wold of mind and of feeling

We live in two worlds, the world of mind and the world of feeling. When we let the world of feeling blend with the world of mind we experience the world as a totality. A wholeness is here. It is not a desperate flick of fulfillment but a deeply supportive and nurturing experience. Through feeling we experience wholeness, without it we are only a shell of a being. When we have the integration of body and mind then the two worlds blend and we awaken to a quiet mind and experience an unlimited self. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Story books are a lot like our life.

Story books are a lot like our life. Some are complex and some are simple. Some give us joy and some bore us or even scare us. They are also excellent examples of the drama of life. That is, they exemplify, in a microcosm, how we experience life in general. And just like choosing a book to read, we can choose how to live our life. The unwinding of locked emotions and points of view is the entry point to rewriting our stories. As each issue arises that seems to limit our “new” story, we process our feelings and the new story is allowed to unfold. Happy creating to you. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

All our lives we have been taught

All our lives we have been taught to try hard, that this is the way to achieve a fulfilling and productive life.  We disagree.  The need to work hard is the model that society has trapped us in.  As we learn to feel and integrate body and mind we realize a completely different way to live.  We unfold into right choices and find ourselves fulfilled and successful. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The only way of finding the limits

“The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.”  Arthur C. Clarke

And so we go beyond the boundaries that society has talked us into following.  We choose instead to feel and in so doing find out who we are.  We then experience the ineffable state of oneness that transcends all intellect.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The mind is like a kid in a candy store

The mind is like a kid in a candy store. It is constantly searching, even striving for more.  Always eating and never resting; it doesn’t even realize it is the source of its problems.  The mind has been taught to ignore the feelings inside its feedback system, the human body.  However, these feelings inside us are the entry point to balance.  When we are allowed to experience our feelings at the signal level, the sensation level, we achieve balance.  The mind learns, with a bit of practice, that feeling is what sets us free and shows us the path to bliss. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The Tao te Ching says: I am like an idiot

The Tao te Ching says (we are paraphrasing): I am like an idiot, my mind is so empty…..I am different from ordinary people, I drink from the infinite.  How can one do this if the mind is empty?  Because when we stop over-focusing we realize we are the flow of everything and now we ARE.  We understand Being and let the unfolding of events move through us.  Now we are present, constantly fed and nurtured.  ~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
