Free Of Fear: Quietly Okay In The Midst Of Life

WHEN: May 30, 2019 Afternoon Meeting

Q: We’ve been talking a lot about fear, and you said it’s about separation inside. All my life I’ve felt separated from my self, that I should fit in and couldn’t be my self. I feared others, feared that I was not good enough and that I wouldn’t survive. I’ve felt sadness from the beginning. I’ve struggled a lot to find my self and really be me, but fear can still disturb me and take my energy. I want to be free of it and go deeper. 

John: Wherever you have hope or fear, you’re giving your power away. You’re giving your power away to your self instead of to what you really are. When you are being what you really are, you are happy without a reason.

What you are is rested okayness. In being what you really are, you are deeply okay despite your relationships, your circumstances, your self, your life.

Enjoy being that quiet okayness without that okayness coming from something: not from your self, not from others, not from your life – just you.

You are free to enjoy being that without results. Without results, without return, means that it really is you. It’s quiet, it’s subtle and it’s nurturing. All within, you don’t need anything else.

Q: I need to let go of my past but it comes up, takes my energy, and it’s a while before I can be present again.

John: You’re blaming what you are giving your power to. Your past and your patterns don’t take you away; you use them to get away.

When you are being what you really are, you are unconditioned intimacy that is just there. If you’re being that, it freely moves toward everything. 

Q: It’s good to hear. What can I do to keep my strength and use my power in the right way? 

John: Like relaxing in all of your weaknesses.

Your strengths don’t need you. Your weaknesses need you – just your presence in them; your quieted presence there in your weaknesses.

Returning To Your Innermost – A Life Of Love

Q: What is in the way of shifting all at once to being what we really are?

John: Nothing. Believe only what you most deeply, directly know the truth of in your heart and there’s nothing in the way. Without that, your false beliefs are all, impossibly, in the way. 

The more that you work with them to be rid of them, the stronger you make them. When you don’t like them you’re feeding them. When you like them, you’re feeding them. If you’re sick of being separate you’re not finished with being separate...

Your Body: The Gateway To Your Soul

Q: I want to talk about something I’ve been dealing with my whole life. It’s the body I’m living in – my body. Deep inside there’s such a wish to live in freedom with it, but I can’t let some things go. I’m so ashamed of my body. I treat it with diets, and had an operation some years ago.

John: Let your body be your kindest friend. Let it teach you how to be in it.

Your own body is the gateway to your soul...

Trauma And The Healing Of Your Nervous System

Q: I’m a breath worker and I love what I hear about the being, and of the opening and softening of the heart. I know that people get pushed out of shape by the emotional charge that is held in the body at a cellular level, and that is the deal with trauma.

John: Your cells match you. Trauma that is held in the body is a manifestation of what you’re being in your body. Trauma doesn’t hold together on its own, so trauma doesn’t actually need any therapy, any guidance, any freeing, any loosening. ..
