Before I met the Balanced View training I did not even think freedom from suffering was attainable. Ha ha :-). However, I discovered that by relying on open intelligence there was freedom from suffering amidst experiences of physical and emotional pain. I discovered that the suffering is created through my own resistance and that nothing can actually cause me suffering. I discovered that no amount of pain whether physical or emotional has any influence on who I truly am and that all appears in, of, as, and through great bliss.
It is really beyond anything that can be imagined with the mind that has been trained in reification. Only through trust in my teacher and the teachings was I able to experience this gradually. I will be forever grateful for the skilful guidance of the teaching that leads to increasing absence of suffering.
I thought I was unworthy of experiencing fulfilment, love, happiness and peace until I came across the Balanced View Training. The example of Candice, the trainers and community just made it obvious to me that there is never a reason to not bask in the completeness and wonder of each moment. It is such a miracle that everything I ever looked for is already present and it is just a matter of allowing myself the goodness of completely releasing all effort and contrivance.
Candice just transmits infinite joy, beauty and countless other beneficial qualities and by seeing her example I start to realize that life is completely wonderful, regardless of descriptions I learned.
It is really wonderful beyond words. Such bliss, peace and happiness and deep fulfillment is felt, without any cause. To let myself enjoy this gift completely is the greatest contribution I could ever make.
Forever grateful for the precious transmission of Candice and all who follow her footsteps.
In blissful gratitude,
Through the Balanced View training, there is an ever-increasing joy of being. The greatest surprise is that all the joy, love and benefit is present in all the thoughts, feelings and sensations that I was avoiding.
Before meeting this training I only occasionally felt a sense of joy in certain circumstances and situations where I felt I could be myself. This was a very limiting experience because I was constantly trying to recreate certain circumstances and situations in order to experience this joy.
However, through this practice, I have found a tremendous joy in letting myself experience all the thoughts, emotions and sensations that I thought are “wrong” or “negative”. It might seem crazy but I have found indestructible joy by allowing all negativity to rage freely without holding anything back. It is such a miracle and I would have never discovered it without the Balanced View Training.
There is such liberation in allowing myself to think and feel everything. By doing that all the conditioning of society is brought up and the cosmic joy at the basis of everything shines forth. There is nothing sweeter than taking in all suffering and letting it shine for the benefit of all beings.
Reality is pure goodness, so there is nothing to reject. It is all so amazing and beyond words or imagination.
I feel everyone who is magnetized through this training will experience this for themselves eventually, even if it might seem like a distant dream at first. The support system is so perfect and complete. To me, it is the greatest gift to the world that this is available today to so many people. Thank you all for making this possible.
Thank you Candice for this indescribable gift. I am grateful beyond words for your precious existence.
I have spend many years trying to find “what I love to do”, “what I am passionate about”.
However, even when I had my dream job I felt that something is missing. No matter what I did it felt like it was never good enough. Like there might be something better.
So I was hopping around endlessly trying to find “my passion”.
However through this practice it became obvious that it is completely impossible to find lasting life satisfaction by having a certain job description. No matter how good, or bad a job might be in alignment with my preferences, it can never even give a tiny bit of joy.
All joy comes from “letting everything be as it is” and all suffering comes from trying to control experiences.
I have felt complete joy and cheerfulness in jobs and situations that were completely out of control negative on a descriptive level, through the support of this practice.
Overtime it became obvious that I am the love, that I was looking for in a certain job, place or person.
This is an indescribable gift and relief. I have found fulfilment and a sense of completeness through Balanced View‘s Four Mainstays empowerment network, that I know now is impossible to find through the attainment of statuses and job descriptions. Now everything can sparkle with joy, love and wonder.
I am forever grateful for all the guidance and support I receive from the Four Mainstays.
The Balanced View training introduced me to a way of living that was unimaginable to me before. I often have tears running down my face when I think of all of the changes that have taken place in mine and so many other peoples life.
I experience a cosmic primordial joy that I cant really describe but that was always there and is now allowed to be there and to flow freely. Beneath all my resentments was this pure shining heart desire to love – everything as it is. Now I can just love with an open heart without fear.
There is a cheerful, playful, loving energy that pervades my days, that was not present before I meet this training. I was so incredibly lost before I meet this training. Everything felt like a threat, like something that could harm or destroy me. It felt like a nightmare compared to now.
The guidance and empowerment I have received from Candice, my trainer, the training media and the community is unbelievable. In ways that I cant really explain the 4 mainstays have dismanteled my deepest fears, just by showing me that everything is love, comes from love and will always be love. No words will ever be able to fully express my gratitude. I want nothing but for everyone else to know this truth. It is so simple. It is who we already are.
In deepest love,
