Reclaiming Your Healing – Jeff Foster

Video with

Author/teacher Jeff Foster talks about healing as an ever-present awareness that embraces all thoughts and feelings, not just the ‘positive’ ones, the way the sky embraces all of her weather. Healing and happiness are not destinations; they are your nature.

Recorded in the Netherlands, Oct 3rd 2015.

Whatever is happening in your life, I’d like to invite you to slow right down…

There is no urgency. Summer does not rush towards autumn. One tiny blade of grass is not trying to grow faster than its neighbour. The planets spin lazily in their orbits. This ancient universe is in no hurry.

But the mind, feeling so divided from the totality, wants answers now, wants solutions today, wants to know so badly. It wants to reach its precious conclusions. And, ultimately, it wants to be in control.

But you are not the mind. Mind is an aspect of the whole, but cannot capture the whole.

So slow down, friend. Take a deep and conscious breath. Trust the place where you are, the place of ‘no answers yet’, the precious place of not knowing. This place is sacred, for it is 100% life. It is full of life, saturated with life, dripping with life, drenched with life.

Don’t try to rush to the next scene in the movie of ‘me’. Be here, in this scene, Now, the only scene there is. Now, the place where questions rest, and creative solutions grow.

Jeff Foster will be speaking at SAND16 @ Esalen
