Constant change

We are in a state of constant change. Our inherent nature is to both run towards and yet resist change. While change is always with us, we can be in a space of balance, wholeness and peace. This peace is not stagnant, it is a dynamic integration where Being is experienced. All it takes is the willingness to feel the subtle nuances within us, allow them to unfold and the rest is simply there. Being only needs the willingness to feel.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Search for who we are

The search for who we are and what we should do is often on our minds. As we feel the sensations within us, these internal conflicts begin to drop away and bit by bit we discover we are able to make good choices, learn from our experiences and finally realize we are enough, sufficient to the day and our life.

Enjoy the journey. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Being and non Being

We join spokes together in a wheel, but it is the center hole that makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house, but it is the inner space that makes it livable.

We work with being, but non-being is what we use.

In our life we are always looking at what is around us and believe what we see there is what is useful.  Yet as the quote tells us how we choose to use something can be viewed from a very different perspective.  We can choose to draw from innovation, from a place of inspiration that moves well beyond the norm and many will say amazing, yet we know that living in that quiet space of non-being all possibilities exist.  Enjoy ~Alain & Jody Herriott

When we feel

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

On the Path

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

When you seek a cause you have already created a result

“When you seek a cause you have already created a result.”  This is such a lovely phrase.  The very act of doing anything puts into motion a whole series of events and any expectation within that creates Need.  That is the nature of all Maya.  That is because if we seek we are in desire.  This action causes expectation and that leads to tension.  If we choose to feel our feeling within any issue, then we unfold and balance and openness is the result.  We end up in harmony and there is nothing that needs to be done as we are simply there.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott (quote from Gravity Dreams by L.E. Modesitt, Jr.)

Every experience we have is an opportunity

Every experience we have is an opportunity to experience opening. This means everything that happens! People believe that being present doesn’t include everyday interactions and experiences and that we need to leave the state of presence in order to interact with others. In our experience this is not the case, just the habit created from years of patterning. Every experience can now take on new meaning. We are in the world but not of the world, nor are we drawn into the drama of a situation.

The Tao te Ching would say:

Can you deal with the most vital matters
by letting events take their course?
Can you step back from your own mind
and thus understand all things?

This is the nature of Being versus being caught in the drama. Feeling the feelings within us and allowing them to unwind takes us there and sets us free. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Have you ever noticed, when we feel, we are motion

Have you ever noticed that when we really let ourselves feel, there is a sense of motion within us?  On the other hand when the mind thinks, the motion is stopped.  From this we learn that feeling creates movement, and too much mind creates stops.  Movement is the beginning of freedom and stops are what keep us locked in place.  We encourage you to feel; the movement will set you free and return you to Being.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Supraliminal: of or relating to any stimulus

Supraliminal:  of or relating to any stimulus that is above the threshold of sensory awareness.  In psychology: being above the threshold of perception of a stimulus

As we unwind the issues that limit us, we become aware of states of being and stimuli that exceed previous levels of awareness.  We are actually able to experience life in a supraliminal way.  The extremely subtle becomes the new normal; we are now present and the world opens before us.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
