Meeting Pain in Your Body from Your Heart

WHEN: April 5, 2016 Afternoon Meeting

Q: I have some pain in my throat, chest and stomach very much of the time. I have been examined medically and nothing was found but I still experience it. Can you say anything about this?

John: If it’s not medical, then it’s your self.

Q: What do you mean?

John: That in your self you’re living out dissatisfaction, and that dissatisfaction shows up within those energy centres that you most identify with dissatisfaction. When you’re dissatisfied within your self and you remain in that, for instance in the area of communication, the tightness in your self will begin to manifest in your throat area so you can have pain in your throat without there being a medical problem. But if you continue in that, a medical problem develops.

Q: So what can I do about it?

John: Be gentled and quieted in your heart regardless of what you experience in your self and in your life. That means that your heart centre and you being in your heart matter more to you than your self and your life. When that’s how you are in your self, your self opens. When your self opens your body opens. Your body opens into depth, which allows a depth of meaning to move.

When you’re not gentled and quieted in your heart, you’ll be in some way dissatisfied with your self and your life. That shuts down a depth of movement of meaning in your self and in your life, which causes pain.

Q: So I need to be gentle and soft?

John: Deep within, yes, and quietly within, yes. When you’re gentled and quieted within, regardless of what you’re thinking and feeling and regardless of what you’re experiencing, then you’re coming from a deeper place than experience. That brings a depth of presence into your experience, so your sense of meaning comes from deep within instead of from what you’re experiencing. This opens your self and opens your body. It’s the difference between you coming from deep within and naturally expressing outwards, and you coming from the outside, trying to come in.

When your heart matters more to you than your self you will naturally be in your heart. You’ll come from your heart. That changes how you experience your self.

Q: Thank you.

I’m Not Getting The Promotion I Deserve!

Q: My husband and I worked very hard last year and didn’t get promoted. What can we do to have our work recognized? We work very hard, do our duty, but there seems to be no justice.

John: Do what you’re already doing without needing to be promoted. That makes you more promotable than when you need to be promoted. Once you both have what you’re looking for, then what will you do?

Q: I’d continue in the work I’ve chosen, but I am looking for justice and recognition in our workplace...

Evolving In The Midst Of Bipolar Disorder

Q: For some time now I’ve experienced strong bipolar episodes. I don’t want to be a victim and I do accept responsibility, but their impact is so intense and they throw me so far from my self, I feel that I don’t have my independence anymore. There’s a relentless inevitability and I wonder what to do about it.

John: You suffer from what, in a tropical climate, is called hurricane season.

The seasons that you pass through don’t stop you from being what you first are...
