Awaken In

How do I feel? Where do I feel? What do I feel? That is the question…

In the journey of life…western mainstream society’s beliefs have largely sought to repress, control, and often ignore how we feel.

The ‘logic’ of the mind becomes the voiced reason for choices and actions. Yet what about feelings?

We are born with them…to cry, to laugh, to feel mad, to feel sad, to feel…Where do we feel?

In the body, is the first answer in my thought…I have noticed that the feelings travel around the body, or may become localised or any manner of variation as I think a thought and feel a feeling… The body speaks in reflection of my feeling…when I feel sad for example, I may feel it in my chest area as a heavy sensation. This brings an awareness to my emotion…sadness.

My process for this is to sit in this feeling… to take the time to be in it…not always easy depending upon the emotion. Yet the longer I sit the more I find I am revealed to myself. The feeling, Why the feeling sad? The sensation of feeling…exploring this and “allowing” the feeling creates for me a sense of release and a clarity as to what is going on in this body, this mind, and in the ‘energy’ of the feeling.

From the mind we may make judgments of ourselves based on feelings we have, or have feelings about others in judgement  making “an assessment” about how they are. Oh they are like this or that and I don’t like this or I really like that…based on what is labelled by  mind as  feeling bad or feeling good.   Within…We may do the same pattern with ourselves such as I like this about me or I don’t like that about myself …

Where do judgments come from? The mind?…A belief?

What do I feel about that?

Moving the mind into the heart… How do we see the world?

Through the  eyes of the body we see people, places, things and nature… We think from a mirror reflection that we are this body… from  mind we think we are the mind…or with thoughts of mind that a situation is actually how we see it. I find that  when I move my mind space into my heart there

Patterns…What is it that we see and experience differently?

As awareness expands into conscious mind, I have found that I see and experience all of life differently at any moment in time. What is true for me in one instance might be different the next.  Within this seeing I see patterns, just as in nature there is the spiral of a DNA and the

Radical Forgiveness…Loving Acceptance… Can the truth set you free?

Forgiveness…what does this really mean as the word is used in today’s world?… To say the phrase “I forgive you” means what ? To let it go? That it is all OK…like nothing happened…That I will allow it in the future or not? That I will forgive you but the behavior is not ok?  What does
