Manifesting You – Deeply and Warmly Complete

WHEN: April 5, 2016 Afternoon Meeting

Q: My question is about love. I know to give love, and that’s easy for me around children and women, but when I’m in a deep relationship with a man it shifts and I want to receive love, which doesn’t work. I don’t understand why the giving of love stops in this way.

John: It’s also really the same with others; it just doesn’t show as much. The lack is not just there with men. It’s there with everything. For you, it just manifests more quickly with men.

If you’re being what’s deepest within, so you’re beginning within a point that’s already complete and you sustain being that, that completeness will manifest within everything in your life. It’ll manifest in every relationship.

Q: What do I have to manifest?

John: What you are. To move in life is to move in manifestation. Everyone is always manifesting. It’s what you’re being within that becomes manifest, so if you’re beginning with something that’s already complete, then completeness shows up on the surface in everything in your life because that’s what you’re coming from; that’s what you are being.

If what you’re being within is less than complete, you’ll manifest that incompleteness, in some way, in everything in your life. That incompleteness is going to show up for you within one area of your life or your self more than others. For you it shows up more in your relationship with a man but it isn’t really that, it’s just where it shows up more strongly. Wherever it shows up tells you that it is really there everywhere.

Q: So I don’t feel complete in myself and that is manifesting outside of me?

John: Yes. Not so much that you don’t feel complete, but that what you are being within is not complete. You’re beginning with something that is incomplete. The more deeply you come from within, the more that what you are being within is complete, and that shows up within everything in your self and in your life.

Q: So as a little child I was complete and I still am complete, but my thoughts tell me otherwise. Is that what you mean?

John: When what you’re being within is deeply and warmly OK as is, when you are fundamentally warmed within without anything having to be a certain way in your experience, then this depth of warmth is going to show up within all of your experience.

Q: I see. Thank you.

Cancer: Your Beloved Teacher

Q: Hello John. I first encountered you a few months ago when I heard a tape of yours on the subject of cancer. At the time I was very struck by the beauty and truth of your responses. Cancer wasn’t an issue for me then, but it is now. I feel a sense of unreality about it because sometimes I feel very well and optimistic about the outcome on a physical level, but recently there have been times when the pain has been excruciating and I no longer feel optimistic…

Real Power: Givenness To Love In The Midst Of Polarity

Q: I’ve recently experienced a restedness within and I know there’s new life there. I feel I’m stepping into something of the weakness you speak of. Would you speak more about weakness and real power?

John: From within the conditioning in our selves, we relate to power as what gives us advantage: an advantage over vulnerability, an advantage over weakness, an advantage in being taken advantage of, an advantage in unfairness, having an advantage in being liked, being loved, being cared for. It’s all an abuse of power: the use of power that doesn’t come from within nurture, the use of power that has its relationship to lack, the use of power that perceivably gives remedy to lack...

What Is Real Forgiveness?

Q: I want to talk about forgiveness. We’re often told to forgive this and forgive that, but if we’re really coming from our heart there is no need for forgiveness. 

John: Yes. When you hold a grudge, or when you’re closing and hardening towards someone because of how they’ve treated you, it doesn’t matter how wrongly you’re treated, you’re not right in closing or hardening. So in that way no one has a good or a real reason to close and harden. 

We can close and harden when we’re mistreated, and what we understand in ourselves is that ultimately we need to come to a place of forgiving, forgiving the other...
