Being a Reachable, Visible, Touchable Heart

WHEN: January 1, 2011 Afternoon Meeting

Q: Hi, John. I’m home, but how do I stay this when I’m not here? What best serves me?

John: By not using your person or even your self for your being there. In your life your being a person separates you from your self, and your being a self separates you from your heart. When you’re being a person you are immoveable. When you’re being a self you are moveable but not easily touchable. When you are being your heart you are all touchable. When you’re being your heart you have lost your control. Without your control you are really there.

The real value of your being what a heart is your being that in your self, being in your self without your compromising this. That makes your entire interior, all of your self, vulnerable to your really touchable heart. Your being this within all of your self will be a loss of control, and with all of that beautiful loss of control your heart will be free in all of your self, and your heart will be bigger than your self. To fully step up your being in the touchable-ness of your heart is for you to be this not just in your self, but for you to be this visible, available, reachable in all of your person.

Where your loss of control meets your heart, through all of your self, with its face meeting everything, that puts your really being here way out-there, with your only guidance and stability being the tiny little bit within that you know the truth of, and it is by that that you answer everything. In your being really here, your only real connection is the tiny little bit within. It is only really that tiny little bit, it is only the exquisite, within, that you have to offer anyone.

That is how you can be this, way-out-there. Being this way out there will have your relationship with your self and your person and, how it has been, gone. In your experience, that would be like being a bird with the loss of all of your feathers, but perhaps one. One left over to remind you of all you used to have that you don’t need any more.

What Shall I Do With The Rest Of My Life?

Q: I recently retired from work. I’m sixty-two. I intend to live beyond ninety and am thinking what to do with the remaining thirty years of my life. The question is about focus and choice. What is my task for these remaining thirty years in this life?

John: To awaken to your much greater interior within that hasn’t yet been a part of your life. Your awakening to that will cost you what has been your life.

Aside from anything at all to do with your self, you have knowledge that there’s more and that the more isn’t at all like your self; it isn’t at all like what your life has been...
