We have been taught

We have been taught that everything we do in life is about achievement, about reaching goals and once achieved; start a new one.  For, if we are not striving, we are going backward.  This cycle never allows us to enjoy our life for we are constantly incomplete. However, if we are willing to feel and unwind this need to constantly strive, we set ourselves free from this limiting view, all possibilities are now ours.   Enjoy your new freedom.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

In the search for Bliss we look everywhere


In the search for bliss we look everywhere.  We sit and meditate and try to keep the state achieved or strived for.  Yet it is elusive or temporary.  Then one day we realize that all this striving is not the answer.  We begin to unwind the striving, the need to accomplish and we arrive.  Bliss becomes available in every moment and we simply are there.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Accomplish, Arrive, Bliss, strive

So what does it mean to BE

So what does it mean to BE?  We so often hear about Being, as Ram Das says Be Here Now, Now Be Here, Here Now Be.  So many words and really a simple thing to do.  All it requires is the willingness to feel, to unwind the seeming limitations within us and in so doing arrive at Being. It is what is there when the internal conflict dissolves.  The odd thing is most people will strive to obtain this and certainly some will achieve Being in this way.  However almost anyone who is willing to feel will find themselves effortlessly in a Being state as the blocks are unwound and the striving and yearning drops away.  The mind becomes quiet, understanding is present.  Enjoy ~Alain & Jody Herriott

BE, feel, Ram Das, strive
