Just You, Loved: Flourishing In The Mystery Of Your Sexuality

Q: There’s something I want to get clear about that’s been a troublemaker in my life since I was little. You’ve recently said something like: “Your sexuality is made for this” and “the closest in all of your life for this to have is your sexuality.” Something like that. And it links to something else you’ve said recently, too, which is to do with coming here to marry on the highest level. Are you speaking about the power of human sexuality to move through and with that?

John: Not its power, but its inherent capacity to translate your being, and beyond, into your self and to your self. ..

Living In The Light Of Goodness That Doesn’t Pass Away

Q: It’s been such a rich experience for me to be here with you, and I’m grateful. My question is about fear. A year ago I was treated for cancer and my heart was damaged by the radiation. No one can tell me if this will heal or how long it will take. I feel such fear and insecurity because of this. I hope you can help me.

John: You will be just fine after you die, and for sure you’re going to die. You have no real reason to be afraid of dying...

Building From The Goodness Within

Q: How can I take on new responsibilities and at the same time be okay with what’s around me?

John: On the inside, by you always being about building something. As easy as it is for you to break something on the inside or the outside, you become clear that you’re really all about building. 

When you are about building something good on the inside, you’re taking on new responsibility and it changes your whole relationship with everything that’s outside of your self...

The Responsibility Of A Lifetime

“I am only here to empower the little bit that you know, to profoundly set things straight, to introduce healing first to the deep and inviting everything else to follow.

I am only helping where you came from, not the interests that you come here with. This isn’t going to make your life any bit better; it will only make it true, letting what counts the most count first.

What is happening here is like a wave, and inasmuch as you know it, it is really not worth wasting...

It’s Time: Responding To The Call Of Greater Reality

Q: I heard a blackbird singing and felt a little envious because he’s doing what he purely is, and he will die without complaint having done all he could. That’s what we try to accomplish, and I sensed that this is what you do. Can you tell me 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...
