In spite of what may be our desire, life is not a road map we follow. It is a journey into the unknown. Staying open is not a matter of faith, but of inner knowing. Our inner knowing is not something that knows facts. Instead it knows and is at peace with the nature of life.

  2. 2. In spite of what may be our desire, life is not a road map we follow. It is a journey into the unknown.
  3. 3. As we plan our future, we all too often take comfort in establishing a fixed path. Staying open may feel like an uncomfortable place to be. It may even feel like it goes against every fiber of your being, yet it is the path of the wise.
  4. 4. Intense emotions are generally rooted in distorted perspectives and personal issues. They are rarely a solid foundation for a life plan.
  5. 5. Deeper than emotions lies the fine feeling level. It is the place of wisdom, insight, and reason. It offers a balanced under-standing of the many facets of any situation.
  6. 6. Life is a paradox of pros and cons, permeating every decision. Paradox cannot be resolved with the intellect or the emotions. The resolution of paradox is found in the quiet stillness of the fine feeling level. Michael Mamas
  7. 7. All too often, we consider our emotions to be our truth. The wisdom we find in the fine feeling level gives emotions the time to settle down so our real truth that lies deeper can be known.
  8. 8. Ancient Seers have said that impressions upon the mind (chitta) obscure our knowing of truth. Wisdom pursues that which lies beyond chitta.
  9. 9. Understanding the nature of time, the fine feeling level is a place of patience. Patience is simply a healthy relationship with time —a comfort with the unknown.
  10. 10. Our relationship with life is far more flexible than we may realize. Staying open is the gateway to infinite possibilities.
  11. 11. Staying open is not a matter of faith, but of inner knowing. Our inner knowing is not something that knows facts. Instead it knows and is at peace with the nature of life.
  12. 12. When the heart and mind are in balance, we rest at home in the fine feeling level. We contentedly stay open to the unknowable, and thereby wisely find our way along the path of life.
