How Can I Realize My Vision Of A New Economy?

WHEN: November 22, 2015 Evening Meeting

Q: I have a vision of a new economy. How can I bring it into reality?

John: What is your vision of a changed economy?

Q: It’s to do with fairness in wealth and ecology, not just working for money and profit. It’s about people working together for a higher aim, introducing a new quality of working together.

John: You can change your relationship with the economy, how you move and how your company moves with the economy.

Q: That means introducing new methods of working together, partners staying in connection in the vision and not concentrating only on the outer economy.

John: That will change your part and it will change any one else’s part who works with you, but to change the economy involves much more than that.  

You need to estimate what power you have, or you won’t have the means to carry out the vision. You might not have the power to carry out the vision. The greater the vision, the more levels of power you need because you’ll be going against the norm of how this world functions. To do that, you would need to understand your power and what levels of power you have.

Q: It’s the very beginning – a seed in the ground. I will not get the fruit of the seeds I will plant, but maybe the seeds will come up from the earth and others will work with them.  

John: If you’re not sure of all of the levels that are required to carry out the vision as you move forward with your vision, the vision will spend you; it will use you up and you won’t fulfill the vision.

The bigger the vision, the more levels you need, within. If your vision is to plant a seed, it won’t require much, but planting a seed isn’t going to change the economy.  You can have a great vision, but then you also need accessible to you great power and levels. The vision needs to suit what’s available to you.

Realize all of the levels available to you, but not in view of your vision. If you hold the vision in view, you might be overlooking some of your levels. If you open into all of the levels available to you – levels of you – you also might not have that vision anymore. As you open up into all of the levels available to you, that will change your seeing and consequently your thinking and your feeling.  

Instead of being loyal to the vision, be loyal to all of the levels available to you. In that you are cleanly opening and wherever that may take you, you’ll see.

Real Power: Givenness To Love In The Midst Of Polarity

Q: I’ve recently experienced a restedness within and I know there’s new life there. I feel I’m stepping into something of the weakness you speak of. Would you speak more about weakness and real power?

John: From within the conditioning in our selves, we relate to power as what gives us advantage: an advantage over vulnerability, an advantage over weakness, an advantage in being taken advantage of, an advantage in unfairness, having an advantage in being liked, being loved, being cared for. It’s all an abuse of power: the use of power that doesn’t come from within nurture, the use of power that has its relationship to lack, the use of power that perceivably gives remedy to lack...

What Is Real Forgiveness?

Q: I want to talk about forgiveness. We’re often told to forgive this and forgive that, but if we’re really coming from our heart there is no need for forgiveness. 

John: Yes. When you hold a grudge, or when you’re closing and hardening towards someone because of how they’ve treated you, it doesn’t matter how wrongly you’re treated, you’re not right in closing or hardening. So in that way no one has a good or a real reason to close and harden. 

We can close and harden when we’re mistreated, and what we understand in ourselves is that ultimately we need to come to a place of forgiving, forgiving the other...

My Mother Is Dying …

Q: My mother is very ill. She’s likely to die very soon, and in my self I’m panicking. 

John: When she dies, she will be so fine. 

Q: In my heart I know everything’s okay, yet I feel very alone with it.

John: Then that’s that. What is real is right there. You go to your heart and stay there: not just concerning your mother dying but concerning your whole life, concerning everything. You will, a little bit, turn into what she will be after she’s died, and your life – what you have left of it – will not continue to just pass away. ..
