Now, that is a total waste of time and energy. The nature of mind is movement. Listen to its innate flow. Feel the pull to manipulate or control. Let go…

    The mind and body cannot be separated. My personality is expressed in my body, and is largely kept in the body-mind prison. My attempt to free the mind from itself is a vicious cycle. However, when I accept the contents of the mind and body (such as my personality), they no longer have a hold.
     
    I notice that actions that are reactions to changing life circumstances create a false chain of memory in us.
     
    The catch is that we cannot accept or welcome until we see (experience) that we are not welcoming!

    I am learning not to judge when my experience is nothingness. I would prefer peace or love or support, which are surely in that space but perhaps Betty is not there to make those observations. I am learning not to panic when experiencing nothingness. Maybe it is really no oneness. Which is letting go of the illusion of somebody ness.

    What I have traditionally labelled "meditation" is really no more than a concentrated mind that features a non-activity of the senses. As delightful as that restfulness may feel, it remains mostly localized and conditional. However, real tranquility has no direction, is fluid, and comes and goes naturally.
    In real meditation there is no achieving and no controls; there is no one that meditates.

    There is so much freedom in just letting thoughts, thought – without any commentary and without judgment. That to me is being present – no past and no future. And, no beliefs to cloud the vision

    Everyone is good enough. Not good enough is an illusion. We are perfect and powerful. Not as an illusionary separate self, but as a part of the One. “Be still a moment and go home, to a place you never left.” Yes, I know, Russ. Thank you for remembering that I have said that before. It is a verse that made my homesick, separate self cry. I am home!

    Our instructions for healing were: Get out of the way.

    I am not healing. The healing energy is healing. Just sit there and set an intention for energy to be sent. The rest of it takes care of itself. It takes a little practice to be able to let go. I focus on my body, because the energy goes through me. So, I always get some energy as well. I am sure everybody’s experience is unique to them. Energy can also be sent through prayer to a higher power, consciousness, etc. A hug is a great way to give healing energy. You don’t have to be good enough. Just give up that belief.

    After experiencing freedom, I notice mind's attempt to dive into “you're just not good enough.” This line is something that I’ve struggled with in continuing or really committing to my role as a healer. The dialogue tends to push me into old habits, especially when I am choosing to follow along. I acknowledge that I follow this story in order to avoid the immediate change that seems to come from recognizing who we really are.
