When we see our world with Wonder

When we see our world through the eyes of Wonder everything has a special glow.  We realize that we are an integral part of everything.  This significance reminds us that seeing the world in this way is like seeing it as if through the eyes of a child.  Life is experienced as a precious ever evolving gift.  Join us and return to those special moments for a life time.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The closer you come to knowing

“The closer you come to knowing that you alone create the world of your experience, the more vital it becomes for you to discover just who is doing the creating.” ― Eric Micha’el Leventhal

Yes, we must unravel the facade we call the everyday person and release who we really are; an unlimited being caught within the day to day drama of life.  As we come to understand this and dissolve the illusion, we again take control of our world and live a life both fulfilling and marvelous. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Our lives are like an endless river

Our lives are like an endless river.  Within the river are boulders and banks, debris and floating jetsam. The things in the river are the creations of our mind.  The mind clings to these creations even though they are not the river.  Our feelings, when felt and allowed to unwind, support the flow and the clearing of these obstacles we have created in our river.  As more and more obstacles are unwound the river becomes a sea and a sea becomes an ocean, a never ending connection to everything we could ever imagine.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Happiness is part of who we are

“Happiness is part of who we are. Joy is the feeling” ― Tony DeLiso, Legacy: The Power Within

It is our right to be happy and yet so many of us get lost on the path to having it be so.  Feel, for as you do you will uncover the joy that is inside you and it will be as if you had wings to fly to the most amazing places.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

In the search for Bliss we look everywhere

10/5/16

In the search for bliss we look everywhere.  We sit and meditate and try to keep the state achieved or strived for.  Yet it is elusive or temporary.  Then one day we realize that all this striving is not the answer.  We begin to unwind the striving, the need to accomplish and we arrive.  Bliss becomes available in every moment and we simply are there.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The problem with introspection is that it has no end.

“The problem with introspection is that it has no end.”  ― Philip K. Dick

This is what the mind does, it looks, examines and judges, going on and on without rest.  We can break this cycle of internal overactivity by allowing our feelings to have a role in our life as well.  While it does take some practice the rewards are well worth the time spent.  Feeling and thinking should support each other as opposed to excluding each other.  The act of allowing feeling and the mind to have an equal role in our lives is what leads us to have a quiet mind that is effective and peaceful.  We find that now we can simply be and in so doing experience who we really are.  –Alain & Jody Herriott

So what does it mean to BE

So what does it mean to BE?  We so often hear about Being, as Ram Das says Be Here Now, Now Be Here, Here Now Be.  So many words and really a simple thing to do.  All it requires is the willingness to feel, to unwind the seeming limitations within us and in so doing arrive at Being. It is what is there when the internal conflict dissolves.  The odd thing is most people will strive to obtain this and certainly some will achieve Being in this way.  However almost anyone who is willing to feel will find themselves effortlessly in a Being state as the blocks are unwound and the striving and yearning drops away.  The mind becomes quiet, understanding is present.  Enjoy ~Alain & Jody Herriott

I dream of things that never where

“There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask, why? I dream of things that never were, and ask, why not?” – Robert Kennedy

And so the mind looks and judges and stops the dream.  It holds to old ways and is afraid to let you dream beyond what is comfortable, what it is used to.  Through feeling we break this habit and move into whatever we would choose to dream.  Now we have set ourselves free and everything is possible.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Conquer the anxiety of life, breathe

“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.”–Amit Ray

So often we hear this kind of suggestion and as everyone breathes, the opportunity to use it is there for all of us.  Within it is the chance to discover sensations that lead one deeper into awareness than most would believe possible.  It is so simple when we are willing to feel the breath.  Feeling really is always safe and it will always lead us deeper into discovery. –Alain & Jody Herriott

The ocean can calm itself and so can we

“if  the ocean can calm itself, so can you. we are both salt water mixed with air.”  —Nayyirah Waheed

Within us is a tumultuous ocean of feeling.  When we are caught in these currents of mental unrest all we see is conflict. Through feeling those feelings and allowing them to unwind we return to calmness.  This occurs naturally when we are no longer caught in our mind this is a natural state of being. —Alain & Jody Herriott

Thought for the Week

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

When we feel at the sensation level it is like we are connecting to our origins.  It is a quiet peaceful way to live.  Every observed limitation then becomes the road to balance. When we stay at the sensation level the “drama” drops away and being is the result.  Enjoy.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
