Feeling & Emotion

Why Does Pleasure Make Me Feel Guilty?

Q: My question is about pleasure, pain and guilt. I’ve recently noticed that I’m experiencing a lot more pleasure running through my body but I seem to believe it’s sinful. I feel guilty and then create physical pain in my body. For example, making love can feel wonderful and fulfilling, but the next day I won’t be able to see properly or I’ll have physical pain.

Being of Help in a Polarized World

Q: How can I be of help to the world?

John: By being in your heart, being in your heart unconditionally, without any focus of results.

Loving Knowing – Part 2

Q: I can’t really ask a question or something, it is just a fear. There is so much fear inside me, of being alone and I can’t really…

John: When you fear being alone, that makes you lonely. When within, you let yourself completely relax into enjoying being utterly alone, without need of anything, then you find out, in the most intimate way, that you are not alone. That you are intimately connected with nectar everywhere. Instead of being alone in your mind, be alone in your heart. ..
