1. Be You in Every Moment

2. Let Go of the Fear of Feeling

*his is a big one. >is!o)ering 'ho 'e are is no di&&erent than opening the door o& a ho"se + the ho"se being a metaphor &or o"r h"man mind. %t6s a great step, 'e6re letting some light in1 0"t does it mean 'e ha)e )isited it thoro"ghly$ >oes it ne!essarily mean 'e ha)e e7perien!ed ea!h room, opened e)ery !loset, and e)en spent some time in the s!ary# basement$ ?erhaps 'e ha)e @"i!3ly pea3ed in ea!h room, b"t ha)e 'e ta3en the time to e7plore them &"lly, meditate in them, open the 'indo's to let some light in, and perhaps do a little !lean "p$ Are 'e o3ay 'ith lea)ing the doors open &or "s and others to see$ *he light o& o"r a'areness isn6t limited to entering 'hat is !om&ortable and a!!eptable to the mind. %t is here to ill"minate all rooms + e)en those d"sty !losets 'ith all o& the old, emotionally !harged baggage 'e ha)e been rel"!tant to e7plore. What has laid dormant 'ithin ea!h room is o&ten ignored. 0"t no', the 'inds o& !hange are blo'ing all doors open and many o& "s are &eeling and re-e7perien!ing many emotions that 'e ha)e on!e prote!ted o"rsel)es &rom &eeling again. *he only thing that blo!3s "s &rom seeing the blessing in letting the 'ind blo' "s open is the &ear o& &eeling. When 'e !hoose to not be !ontrolled and de&ined by this &ear anymore, 'e nat"rally 3eep all o& o"r doors open 3no'ing that it !annot brea3 'ho 'e are, b"t only identities 'ith old patterns that 'ere limiting o"r inner-&reedom and pea!e any'ays.

The intent of this journey isnt to feel good but rather to feel whats actually unfolding within us right now. in other words our intent isnt to feel better but to get better at feeling. !ur authentic state of presence is joyful har"onious peaceful and lo#ing. $owe#er to awa%en to our presence initially re&uires journeying through the current condition of the e"otional body.

3. Identify With Nothing Not Even a !"iritual Identity#
