Posted in Thought for the Week.
We were thinking about the boundaries of consciousness the other day. We realized that while we find ourselves within boundaries in our life and while they may seem to define us they are not truly boundaries. In reality they are only our beliefs. Within these boundaries we label ourselves. For example “I am an engineer”, or a mom or dad or gardener or scientist or animal trainer… These experiences and the expectations that are associated with them are the boundaries that we surround ourselves with. Of course they are not the whole of who we are, but so many of our world experiences appear linked to them that we tend to stay inside that environment. As we feel our feelings in relation to each experience that restricts us, these boundaries unravel and we find ourselves in somewhat uncharted territory. This new freedom is a sublime opportunity to move “beyond the beyond”, to change how we approach everything. Taking this chance is an act of courage, faith and surrender. It is not something that is actually hard to do, it is only outside the boundaries that we have called normal. This action is often called a “path to change.” We welcome you to the Path, it is worth every step taken along this new and constantly unfolding journey back to who we truly are. ~Alain & Jody Herriott
