Responding To Goodness

WHEN: November 5, 2015 Afternoon Open Mic

Q: Thank you for coming to New York. Would you speak about responding to goodness?

John: You love it when you do and you miss it when you don’t. When you respond to it, it hurts so good. When you’re not responding to goodness, it hurts so bad. 

The response to goodness puts you directly into what you really are. It wouldn’t matter what kind of distortion you’re present in; when you relax, you respond to goodness. When you relax as awareness, you’re being what goodness is. 

Any kind of awareness, in any distorted state, when it relaxes it turns directly into goodness – goodness that has no opposite. It’s real and direct source of you.

Q: You just answered about ten of my questions!

John: You just loved.

Q: If I am pierced by something and I turn away from it, is that the same as moving toward it?

John: Instead of moving away or turning away from something, be a direct, most delicate “yes” toward a deeper level of anything that, on the surface, you would have turned away from.  Then you are “yes” to what you most deeply know, even within those things that you don’t like to see. It’s the openness to see more deeply than what initially affects your self. 

Then, as you live, you live walking in. You live entering deeper and deeper levels within, and they’re connected to what you’re experiencing within your self and outside your self. So you have real connectivity, despite what you might be experiencing on the surface. 

Then, when someone who’s close to you is angry with you, what you really begin to see most quietly within is that they miss you. Instead of turning away from an angry person, you’re facing what is dearly just beneath the surface.

Awakening And Shifting To A Greater Reality

Q:  When I’m together with my wife and she pours into me, I drop into deeper levels. I remember you saying that one has to move the energy within the levels to anchor this greater reality into this reality. How can I move that energy when I’m in the deeper levels? 

John: Awareness moves that energy by being the same as meaning in that level.  You won’t be able to move it at first. It doesn’t move as your body moves...

On EMF Exposure, Fear And Your Real Freedom

Q: I lived on a mountain, which I loved, and they’ve put in microwave towers. I’ve had heart attacks and strokes. I’ve been in hospital with all those symptoms and met the pain and shock running through my brain. I’ve been in this wonderful state of beingness and surrendered to dying from a stroke, but I realized I was a ‘doing’ in it. There’s a gap there, somehow, and when I open to the fear it can still gobble me up. Everyone else seems unaffected.

John: When you’re being what you really are, anything that happens to your person, to your body, to your self, to your heart, truly opens you...
