There are people that have been in a certain state for so long
that they don't know what feeling right is like; they don't know
what it feels like to be centered. They're so far out of it and
it's been maybe since they were a baby that they actually were
centered. Paul Chek gives his students Feel Free to help them
understand that this feeling of freedom and being centered is what
they can feel like all the time. Now that they know what the goal
is and they've got a taste of it, they can go put the work in to
get that 24/7 or as much as they can. - Jerry

Power Quotes From The
Not All Thoughts Are True
"Just because you think something, it doesn't mean it's true. In
fact, a lot of what you think is not true; it's just noise. It's
just your brain exercising something and the moment I realized
that, it was a real lightbulb moment because what I had been trying
to do before was to control it. I was trying to get that voice in
my brain to go away but it is never going away. It will be there
but it doesn't mean that I have to engage with it. Not just with
that voice in my head but with many things in my
life." - Jerry Ross
How 'Feel Free' Came To Be
"Alcohol was out of my life but I still didn't feel completely
comfortable in my skin and I was looking for something to help me
with that but not have the negative effects that alcohol had the
more and more I consumed of it. I was looking for something that
wasn't inebriating or limiting. I wanted something that made me
feel comfortable socially but would also enhance my ability to
focus. When I lived in Southeast Asia for a period of time I was
introduced to kratom and then I remembered my experience trying
kava in Vanuatu. That led to the idea of mixing the plants in their
native form, not processed." - Jerry Ross
Creating Value For Others
"I knew how to make money but that wasn't bringing me
happiness so I had to dig deep and find out what I was meant to do
with my life. I realized during that period of deep reflection and
inner work that my purpose wasn't just about me, it was about doing
something of value to society. It's about building value but not
just value for me and that is what really propelled me forward in
life and later down the road Botanic Tonics and Feel Free."
