Being a Reachable, Visible, Touchable Heart

WHEN: January 1, 2011 Afternoon Meeting

Q: Hi, John. I’m home, but how do I stay this when I’m not here? What best serves me?

John: By not using your person or even your self for your being there. In your life your being a person separates you from your self, and your being a self separates you from your heart. When you’re being a person you are immoveable. When you’re being a self you are moveable but not easily touchable. When you are being your heart you are all touchable. When you’re being your heart you have lost your control. Without your control you are really there.

The real value of your being what a heart is your being that in your self, being in your self without your compromising this. That makes your entire interior, all of your self, vulnerable to your really touchable heart. Your being this within all of your self will be a loss of control, and with all of that beautiful loss of control your heart will be free in all of your self, and your heart will be bigger than your self. To fully step up your being in the touchable-ness of your heart is for you to be this not just in your self, but for you to be this visible, available, reachable in all of your person.

Where your loss of control meets your heart, through all of your self, with its face meeting everything, that puts your really being here way out-there, with your only guidance and stability being the tiny little bit within that you know the truth of, and it is by that that you answer everything. In your being really here, your only real connection is the tiny little bit within. It is only really that tiny little bit, it is only the exquisite, within, that you have to offer anyone.

That is how you can be this, way-out-there. Being this way out there will have your relationship with your self and your person and, how it has been, gone. In your experience, that would be like being a bird with the loss of all of your feathers, but perhaps one. One left over to remind you of all you used to have that you don’t need any more.

Turning Into The Meaning Of Just One Word

Q: I remember you once speaking to me of the value of just one word and how far it could take me. Would you say more?

John: When you’re really listening and very gentled within, there will always be one word that represents what you are most learning, one word being birthed in you. Then, what is being birthed with that one word is the depth of its meaning. One word slowly turns into a whole universe.

There is a whole gestation period in realizing just one word, in you slowly turning into the meaning of one word...

Gently Letting In Your Past

Q: Sometimes in my connection with you I hit a wall inside. There’s a sense of something bad in me and I wonder about it. When I was eighteen I had an abortion. I was four months pregnant. After the event, I completely cut off from it and put it behind me. I didn’t want to think about it. I realize that somewhere it’s affected my whole life, that on some level I’ve been punishing myself or haven’t really forgiven myself. I never really got down to feeling it...

What You Truly Are Is Grace

Q: I love the truth of what I am beyond my preferences. I can see my inner face in yours and it’s like being in open sunshine. How can I open more to my shadows – those parts of me that I’ve separated from?

John: By seeing the shadows in others – not seeing such shadows with criticism or judgment, but tenderness seeing them. It is only tenderness that has the honesty to see. If someone else’s shadow can in any tiny little way find the same thing in your self, then the shadows of others, instead of being an attraction for irritation, judgment or criticism, are for you a love reflector...
