Meeting Pain in Your Body from Your Heart

WHEN: April 5, 2016 Afternoon Meeting

Q: I have some pain in my throat, chest and stomach very much of the time. I have been examined medically and nothing was found but I still experience it. Can you say anything about this?

John: If it’s not medical, then it’s your self.

Q: What do you mean?

John: That in your self you’re living out dissatisfaction, and that dissatisfaction shows up within those energy centres that you most identify with dissatisfaction. When you’re dissatisfied within your self and you remain in that, for instance in the area of communication, the tightness in your self will begin to manifest in your throat area so you can have pain in your throat without there being a medical problem. But if you continue in that, a medical problem develops.

Q: So what can I do about it?

John: Be gentled and quieted in your heart regardless of what you experience in your self and in your life. That means that your heart centre and you being in your heart matter more to you than your self and your life. When that’s how you are in your self, your self opens. When your self opens your body opens. Your body opens into depth, which allows a depth of meaning to move.

When you’re not gentled and quieted in your heart, you’ll be in some way dissatisfied with your self and your life. That shuts down a depth of movement of meaning in your self and in your life, which causes pain.

Q: So I need to be gentle and soft?

John: Deep within, yes, and quietly within, yes. When you’re gentled and quieted within, regardless of what you’re thinking and feeling and regardless of what you’re experiencing, then you’re coming from a deeper place than experience. That brings a depth of presence into your experience, so your sense of meaning comes from deep within instead of from what you’re experiencing. This opens your self and opens your body. It’s the difference between you coming from deep within and naturally expressing outwards, and you coming from the outside, trying to come in.

When your heart matters more to you than your self you will naturally be in your heart. You’ll come from your heart. That changes how you experience your self.

Q: Thank you.

Nurturing Your Child’s Goldenness

Q: My question is to do with my daughter. Sometimes I think I’m too judgmental and don’t accept her personality. I’m always thinking about what others think of her, wanting her to be a certain way. It’s hard for me to accept that she has her own way and personality. I love her very much but don’t know how to deal with my feelings – or her, sometimes.

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...
