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.

John: Everything that you feel about her that is nurturing, every feeling you have for her that touches your heart, say to her without adding anything else to it, so when you start to speak, that’s not a reason for you to say everything else that you think and feel...

Your Soul’s Evolution: The Opportunity Of This Life

Q: You speak of the evolution of the soul and the opportunity of this life, and I want my soul to evolve if that’s why we’re here. Can you, first, remind me of the connection between the soul and the being? 

John: Both are unseen forms. Your being comprises form, multi-levelled form of true movement of you: of forms of love. 

Q: So the being doesn’t need to evolve? 

John: It doesn’t need to evolve, doesn’t need to develop...

On Alzheimer’s and Being Together

Questioners at two different meetings ask John about being with a loved one who is in mental decline. What’s happening, and how can we still meet and be together?

November 5, 2015 New York USA

Q: My father died of Alzheimer’s. There was a beautiful simplicity in our relationship towards the end, but where he was going, why and how were all confusing to me. Could you address mental decline and this journey towards being? He had no sense of being or meaning; he just melted away and it seemed so inhuman...
