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

Complete and Whole

As we continue to process our emotions, there comes a point where we realize that we are complete and whole.  Yes, life continues to evolve. Change is a constant in our lives, but these changes serve to open us further, even as they challenge us to step ever further down the road of awakening.  So we become. Whatever we choose to do in life unfolds before us and we know we are enough to meet any challenge.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

A complete world

Each of us thinks of ourselves as a world, complete unto ourselves. We see this world as separate, contained, and often judging the other worlds that seem to have it better or worse than we do.  As we process our emotions around these limiting thoughts and feelings we realize we are really a universe, connected and interacting with all the other worlds.  We are not separate, we are intrinsically linked.  As this realization occurs we become whole, compassionate and balanced.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
