The Tao is like a well

“The Tao is like a well used but never used up, It is like the eternal void: filled with infinite possibilities.” The Tao te Ching translation by Stephen Mitchell

As we reconnect to our feelings and unwind our fears, we realize who we are and are again filled with infinite possibility.  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.)

Today is a beautiful day

Today is a beautiful day, not a surprise and not headline worthy.  We can “judge” the qualities of its beauty and in so doing create tension that some might call excitement and others might call uneasiness. That is the nature of judging. It feeds the existence of drama and draws us in so that we forget that it is still a beautiful day.  Can you coax your mind from the need to perpetuate drama?  Are you open to experiencing “you” for the sheer joy of letting yourself unfold?  This evolves to living a life of open balance and pleasant, ever-evolving being.  Enjoy.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

How do we deal with a world defined by drama

How do we deal with a world that is defined by drama, in effect a land ruled by upset?  We feel ourselves and thus live a life of being vs doing.  For us what matters is the feeling within ourselves that the response produces; everything else is drama. And we use that feeling as the corridor to travel down, which takes us out of the drama and sets us free.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott 

Our feelings may seem overwhelming

Our feelings may seem overwhelming yet if we allow ourselves to experience them even the tiniest bit we begin the path to change and balance.  For every grain of sand you move (every feeling you feel) a mountain of feeling is in motion\.  Let yourself evolve, such is the nature of feeling.

Every experience in our day has sensation

As every experience in our day has sensation in it, there is always an opportunity to open. And as tension is often present just below the surface and is subliminally suppressed it is a golden opportunity to reawaken to ease.  Taking a few moments to unwind, through feeling our baseline feelings, gives us this opportunity to again experience ease in our day.  Take the time, feel, it is simply fabulous to be us.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

We are taught from an early age to achieve

We are taught from an early age to achieve, to push, to beat others.  This is probably the #1 thing in our way in order to know ourselves.  All the striving takes us out of the moment and places us firmly in the mind, separated from our essential self. People believe that striving is necessary in order to achieve our goals.  This simply isn’t true. Instead we find harmony is born, which makes everything possible.  It is easy enough to create balance in our lives; all we need to do is be willing to feel the sensations within us. T  his will change our focus from pushing to opening and the rest simply unfolds.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Recently we were contemplating the word Cognize

Recently we were contemplating the word Cognize which means “to perceive, know or become aware of”. We had a realization. When feeling and intellect are allowed to work together understanding is simply there. So as we perceive in this way our understanding simply unfolds. This is a totally counter-intuitive approach, yet infinitely satisfying. 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 you own mind and thus understand all things?….. Enjoy. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Especially at this time of year, the question

Especially at this time of year, the question of most value is: are we willing to feel or only react to the drama we find ourselves in? That is our option in every situation. If we allow ourselves to feel and unwind our issues, we can set ourselves free from whatever drama we find ourselves in. Do we want to change? Are we ready to go beyond our boundaries? We are allowed to take all the time we need to do so. It is really worth every moment of our time. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

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

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
