There Was a Time…

Posted by Trey Carland on January 12, 2021 at 8:51pm 0 Comments

On the day of the takeover of the Capitol, I stopped to chat with my neighbor, who filled me in on what was happening. He asked me to say a prayer for our country, which I later did. It went a little something like this, “May we all find the peace that we seek and share that peace with the world.” Today, while reflecting on the recent events at the Capitol and the drama that continues to ensue, the impulse to write arose and here is the result:

ATTENTION AND INQUIRY

Posted by Trey Carland on November 16, 2020 at 12:01pm 0 Comments

When asked to summarize his teachings in one word, Ramana Maharshi said, “Attention.” That struck home in a deeper way the most recent time I heard it. I thought he would have said, “Silence,” because that what his preferred method of teaching. But his answer makes perfect sense. His teachings on Self-inquiry are all about directing attention from the world of thoughts and objects to the source of attention. Attention has been described as focused Awareness and is the “tool” (if we can call…

Dealing with Anxiety

Posted by Trey Carland on June 12, 2020 at 2:03pm 0 Comments

I had a nice conversation with a friend of mine who reached out for some support regarding feelings of anxiety that had become a recurring theme. It's a common feeling we've all felt at one time or another and possibly a feeling that is being triggered more frequently by all of the things going on in the world. My friend seemed to benefit from the words I shared so I thought it might be helpful to put them out there for public consumption. Though this conversation dealt specifically with…

Am I in the Body, or is it in Me?

Posted by Trey Carland on April 22, 2020 at 2:47pm 0 Comments

We have been taught since we were old enough to learn that we are the body. But once you’ve had a glimpse of your True Nature as Awareness, that belief begins to get undermined. With subsequent realizations, non-dual moments, awakening experiences, etc., when there is a dis-identification with the body, the belief upon which the whole story of “you” was built begins to weaken. It can be unsettling when the “you” you thought you were begins to appear more like a figment of imagination. I’ve…

Are you the Doer?

Posted by Trey Carland on April 14, 2020 at 1:23am 0 Comments

Do you think you're the doer of things? If not, then read no further. If so, I invite you to ask a few questions and do some further investigation. First, let’s look at the possible options for what is doing the doing. Is it the mind? Is it the body? Or is it something else? Conventional thinking may lead us to believe that the mind is governing the body, so let’s investigate that first. Begin paying close attention to what…

A Two-Night Retreat with Alaya at Well Being Retreat Center

November 5, 2021 at 4pm to November 7, 2021 at 2pm
It is with great joy that we have decided to add an extra retreat this fall Nov 5-7 at the Well Being Retreat Center in Tazwell Tennesse. For the past 6 years or so we have had the great blessing to hold retreat annually at the Well Being and each year brings new depth to the invitation of silence, opening and surrender to this very moment. I joked at this past August retreat that the land and loving support of Don and Pattie are doing most of the work! Meaning just simply, that being on this…See More
