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.

Purity Of Heart: At Rest In Love, Within

Q: In your book ‘The Intelligence of Love’ you say enlightenment isn’t everything, purity of heart is. Can you explain that? 

John: You can be enlightened and that doesn’t mean that you’ll be all that you’ve awakened to, all that you’ve come into. It doesn’t really matter how much you directly know, how much you’ve awakened, how much you’ve come into. What really matters is to be what you directly know the truth of within. 

The amount anyone knows is of little consequence...

Unconditional Openness: Your Love, Your Freedom

Q: I notice in my intimate, sexual relationships that I can be in a moment of openness, comfort and radiance, and then if I’m spoken to in a way that feels aggressive, unkind or mean I’m very quick to close my heart and my being. I really don’t enjoy that experience. What should I do when my heart feels hurt?

John: Quite simply, at absolutely any cost, don’t close.

Q: How? That feels like the only way to feel safe.

John: You don’t need to feel safe...

High Level Relationship: A Rich, Deep Togetherness

Q: As I’m sitting here together with my husband, can you speak with us about the relationship? Do the man and the woman have roles?

John: Where there is a use of personality in relating to each other, there will be an emptiness just beneath it. Keeping things active negatively or positively, on the level of personality, increases the emptiness. 

Just beneath the emptiness you have your real meeting with each other, where neither personality nor emptiness matters. It is there that quieted vulnerability knows and sees...
