Awakening And Responding To The Calling

WHEN: August 27, 2002 Afternoon Meeting

Q: I’ve had a few little glimpses of awakening in my life, and have an incredible fear that if I go there, I’m not coming back. Is that true?

John: When you awaken, the self doesn’t disappear. What doesn’t come back is what the self was. 

Q: Does everyone have the chance to awaken in this lifetime? Does some huge event have to happen or can you just flow into it? For the last couple of years I’ve been waiting for some kind of cosmic thing to happen. But while I was sitting here five minutes ago, I suddenly felt myself drifting into something incredibly joyous and blissful, and I didn’t try to get there. 

John: It is more like you cannot actually get away from there. It keeps calling you. The more quieted you are, the greater the resonance of the calling: you knowing more than what you are being, and that if you would be what you know, there would be much, much more. 

Q: I feel as if I’d see this whole world waiting – a whole amazing place that I can be – and I feel what stops me is lack of courage. I seem to be waiting for courage to come from somewhere to go to that place, yet probably what is real is just to let go into it.

John: It doesn’t require any courage. It doesn’t require you identifying what you regard as being your strength. It requires you identifying with what is actually your weakest weakness, but that would make you entirely vulnerable to love. 

Your weakest weakness is that tenderness always convinces your heart. Tenderness is the way into what you think you are afraid of. The tenderness that it is, is the surety within you that you can trust it. 

Then it is no longer some great cosmic event, but just you completely believing what you always really knew was true. 

Q: Thank you. I’m clear about what you’ve been saying, and I feel my heart has opened.

Consciousness And Your Relationship To Time

Q: What is the relationship between time and consciousness?

John: There are different levels of consciousness. What really matters is what is the deepest level of consciousness that you’ve awakened to, that you’re aware of, that you know within?

The most obvious level of consciousness is a personality consciousness. When you’re being that level of consciousness it isn’t going to be inclusive of anything deeper within. You’ll be confined to what is like a very small bubble of consciousness that’s dependent on the condition of your personality and the functionality of your personality with others...

Sexuality And The Emergence Of The Deep, Within

Q: I’ve felt such a magical connection in these last few days. It’s hard to put into words. I feel wide open. It feels so deep, yet so gently light. There’s electricity in my body and around me. My body’s vibrating and I’m wondering if it’s connected to my sexual energy. It’s so strong. 

John: That means that this isn’t going to come into you and move in you without this emerging in your sexuality and coming through your sexuality.

It has nothing to do with sexuality in your life or in your self...

The Chemistry Of Deeper Sexuality: New Hormones, New Brain, New Body

Q: You’ve spoken of the awakening of the new brain and you said that chemically it’s hormones, but hormones that only the being can move. Is it when sexuality is given to the being that these hormones are produced?

John: It will move hormones not understood yet by science.

Q: So they do exist but they are only accessible when sexuality is given to the being?

John: When the deeper levels move and more of the brain opens.

Q: Then those hormones get activated?..
