To become whole

 

The Tao te Ching says: “If you want to become whole, let yourself be partial.  If you want to become straight, let yourself be crooked…..”  They mean we most often learn by comparison.  In effect we can’t perceive the concept of being straight unless there is some awareness of being crooked.  As the mind quiets through allowing the sensation within ourself to arise, that which felt partial becomes whole and so on.  We are now more and more at peace, balanced and in harmony with our surroundings.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Most people will tell you about their dreams

Most people will tell you about their dreams and in the same breath tell you about their limitations.  We choose to tell you about your dreams and how to become them.  In reality they are already yours, they are simply behind the fears that you have placed in your way.  The Tao te Ching says “if you would become whole, be partial.” In effect, the process of feeling the limitations (that which makes us feel partial) allows everything to unfold and you will be there.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
