“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.” —Thich Nhat Hanh, Stepping into Freedom: Rules of Monastic Practices for Novices

There are many ways to achieve presence and finally to awaken.  Some people use breathing, watching, counting and feeling it; that opens you too.  However it is only a step.  Feeling our feelings is what finally bridges the gap from having to do things to remain present.  This act will finally allow us to Be, for through feeling we experience the integration of body and mind and the rest is simply there. — Alain & Jody Herriott
