Every experience in our world

Every experience and each thing we interact with in our world is part of the definition of self, of what we call “me”.  Many of these things and experiences seem limiting.  They don’t have to be, but through habit we stay in the same old rut.  Mind says: stay with what is familiar, ignore the feelings within you that something is wrong, and you will be safe.  The problem is that we are not safe, we are only used to the rut we have been experiencing.  When we allow feeling to join the mix, we gradually remove the walls of our old ruts and we again become free to live in balance and harmony.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
