How Can I Help Others Heal?

WHEN: September 24, 2012 Afternoon Meeting

Q: For some time I’ve been feeling that my purpose on earth is to help people heal, not as much physically as spiritually. What inside of me needs to open or develop to be able to do so?

John: You’re wanting to help people heal because you are open and sensitive to your needing healing. Your own sense in that then naturally moves toward others, but it isn’t that movement that you need to be following. It’s the first, within, that you need to be following.

You don’t need to help others heal. You just need to be rested, within, in your own healing. If you move in that toward others, you’ll be dissipating the deeper value within of healing. Let your own inner reservoir fill and fill and fill. The filling doesn’t belong to others. It belongs to your healing. The overflow belongs to others. When there is the overflow, you won’t be needing for others to heal. That alleviates them of your helpful self. That makes healing in them easier.

If you move in healing toward others without it being only an overflow, then toward others you will be a living confusion of healing and need. You’ll be slowing your own healing and you’ll be helping others heal, while slowing their healing.

The quieter your own overflow, the cleaner it is.

The End Of All Your Problems

Q: I have difficulty with difficulty! I seem to perceive life as difficult, with everything becoming a mission to be overcome, successfully. I keep thinking I’m doing things wrong and it prevents me from really enjoying life.

John: Any time that you have a problem with something it is because you, within, are out of alignment with what you truly are. As soon as you have a problem, within, then you have taken control when you don’t need it.

Q: Is there ever a time for control?..

What Is Genuine Self-Acceptance?

Q: If love is the answer, we are here to love and that’s what gives us pleasure …

John: Whoops! You were driving along and then you just hit the ditch. Love is the answer, but it isn’t to give you pleasure. It isn’t to make you feel good; it isn’t to give you a nice life, a good life. 

Love is the answer because there isn’t really anything else. As soon as you make love of use, that’s not love...
