The Appeal to Our Beings

WHEN: April 28, 2013 Afternoon Meeting

Q: Hi, John, I heard a blackbird singing outside, and I was a little bit jealous because he’s doing what is pure. What is so special about being human?

John: We are the up-and-coming super-beings on the planet, in waiting. In waiting because we know that we are about more than what we’re experiencing. We know more than what our selves are. We have a broader spectrum of awareness, which makes the possibility and the potential of other beings dependent on ours. Our potential as beings is completely dependent on our response, as awareness, to what we are knowing the truth of in our hearts and not becoming distracted in our selves with the life we have, the life that seems to serve our selves.

Realizing what we really are that is true to what we’re knowing despite what our experiences are, brings our own beings into our hearts. Realizing what we are as beings, beings that move and form our selves, brings us into what we are as beings, the realization of our beings; having being-filled lives, relating to each other through our selves and our persons as beings; bringing our forms about; turning our own forms to match in form and function what we are realizing as beings.

As greater reality opens and begins a little bit to move in our midst, the draw upon our own beings is greatly heightened and magnified. It invites not just the realization of what we are as beings, but what we are as beings within reality that is greater than this reality that has been prevalent for so long. When it is time for reality to open because of greater reality moving, the draw upon our own beings is much greater. The opportunity is also much greater.

As greater reality moves and opens within reality, opening reality, we are able to come into our function as beings, matching not just all of reality but greater reality. That brings about the realization of levels and function in our beings that opens and moves and develops and evolves only with the movement of greater reality. Greater reality appeals differently to our beings than reality, accomplishing a different development, a different development of our beings, bringing about different abilities in our selves, abilities within our selves that enable us in our forms to function and move with greater reality.

When you know the truth of its resonance, you also know, within, that nothing matters more. Its resonance, the resonance of greater reality, magnifies and heightens everything else that you know. With greater reality moving, the evolution of awareness is greatly magnified. The speed at which we can evolve as awareness is greatly increased. Greater reality moving and opening in reality is the promise that reality, as we’ve known it, is going to change. In our selves, when we are limited to our selves by taking our selves to heart, this change of reality is going to exceed the capacity of our selves. That heightens the knowing, within, to abide in the resources that are deeper, within, than what our selves are. It brings about the beautiful pressure to move into what we are as beings.

The appeal of greater reality in changing reality isn’t to our selves. It’s a threat to our selves. The appeal is to our beings. It answers our beings. The more our beings are being answered, the greater the invitation and the pull for our own beings to come up into our hearts, and our being-filled hearts to come up into our selves and to occupy all of our selves, for our beings to really have our selves. We are beings much more than we are selves. We are not really our selves until our selves match in form what we are in our beings. The change of our selves to match our beings is the fulfillment of being our selves. The resistance to being mastered by our own beings is the crippling of our selves.

We don’t need to be convinced in ourselves of the truth of this. We either know it a tiny, tiny little bit and know the resonance of it, or we’re not knowing it. As soon as greater reality moves and touches us, we awaken and we know differently. We awaken to the knowing of a resonance, within, that is dear and true and not understood. What we know, within, and in our hearts is to respond, to respond to what we know the truth of, despite any and all inconvenience. It is a profound, all-encompassing, beautiful inconvenience that says, ‘It’s time.’ And in knowing that, we know that we are called.

As beings we naturally develop and evolve to match the reality of the environment that we’re in. We are always drawn, because of being in reality, to the realization of our beings. It is always a pull in our hearts.

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...
