The Profound Power Of Words

WHEN: June 22, 2015 Afternoon Meeting

Q: You speak of awareness and knowing as one, and its movement being love. It doesn’t always have to be spoken in words – just being what we know is enough. Yet words are necessary in this world and you speak them so finely.

John: Words spoken from within what you’re coming into initiate profound change. With words, in this, you are packaging the unseen and delivering these packages of being right out into what is seen: the being-power of words.

Q: And it doesn’t really matter if they’re fully heard – just that they’re spoken. That’s bringing something into form in this world.

John: It brings you into form in this world; perfect forms of meaning that transcend your self and this world.

Q: So you’re saying it’s important for us to bring it and express it.

John: They’re not just forms of meaning, real forms of what you really are. They are also forms of commitment, committing what is most deep and unseen, within, to what is seen. Words provide instant bridging.

Q: But lots of us are not so articulate!

John: It doesn’t require high levels of intelligence. It requires response to what you know from within the unseen, through what intelligence you do have, right into what is seen.

Q: No particular training required: just simply being what we know.

John: Within the authentic use of any words. For authenticity, as soon as you say what you know, it’s done, and upon that you build.

Q: The real value of words.

John: That value belonging mostly to your being.

Q: I’d love to hear you speak more about words and commitment.

John: Your words always have commitment, so from whatever level or orientation you speak words, you’re putting into form what you’re coming from, what your orientation as awareness is, and the level of that that you’re moving in. So when you settle inside and you say something, you’ve really done it.

If you’re upset about something and you put that into words, you’ve really done it.

Q: It brings the upsetness more into form?

John: Yes. It doesn’t matter what you say; all you say is powerful.

When you realize that, you’re going to be much slower to speak. You’ll be really quick to listen, so you’re really listening within and then you speak. You’re actually directing the power of your words instead of saying things because you can, from your self and your person, which is what you’re used to in this world. If something bothers you then you say it. This whole world functions this way and it’s not real.

Everything other than our own beings is being empowered in this world.

Raising Your Child Without Raising Your Voice

Q: When it comes to educating my child, I feel that I’m not being heard unless I raise my voice.

John: If you need to raise your voice to be heard, that tells you that when you speak she doesn’t believe you.

Q: She doesn’t!

John: Raising your voice doesn’t make her believe you.

Q: No, but it makes her feel fear, and then she would do what I want because she doesn’t want me to shout at her again.

Building A Relationship For A Higher Purpose

Q: Hello, John. My partner and I have been living together for the past six months. Many times I’ve wondered whether that was kind or skillful because of the pain and suffering that arise in the relationship. If I had had my time over, I would not have included sexuality and living together in our relationship until we had a solid, long-term commitment to each other. We want to take some time apart. Is it possible to be together as friends and not be involved intimately until that commitment is solid and strong?

Sleeplessness: What Can I Do?

Q: I told you long ago about my sleeplessness. I’m only able to sleep with strong medicines and even then it’s difficult. I feel weak and there are long periods when I feel completely empty: no thoughts and emotions, only emptiness and fear.

John: In everything that you speak, what really matters is that you quietly open. As you’re lying down to go to sleep but you cannot sleep, enjoy opening. When you go about your day and all seems empty, go about your day opening.
