The Touch Of The Beloved Within

WHEN: February 3, 2016 Afternoon Open Mic


Q: I find it so helpful when you speak of openness and softness of heart, and that all I need is to access the teeniest bit. It relaxes me out of the suffering and stories in my self, yet it’s so easily forgotten. Can you speak more about it?

John: When you are gentled and quieted in your heart, all there really is is that tiny little bit that you know the truth of. That tiny little bit isn’t an understanding; it is the beginning of most delicate beingness.

As you respond to it, you are opening and softening. That’s the beingness you’re responding to. You respond to it by being it. That rested configuration of your being is what you know and what you respond to. It is beingness that you directly know the truth of. Your response to it completes you because that tiny little bit of beingness is complete.

If this tiny touch of beingness would be all that you knew for the rest of your life, you would have it all. To embody that tiny little bit would be everything. That tiny little bit that you know the truth when you’re gentled and quieted in your heart is your being. 

As you enter it, you realize your being. As you turn into that tiny little bit, you discover the beloved.

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...

Q: My daughter is the person I love most on the planet. I deeply and dearly love her and she me, but she took a partner and the moment I saw him, I saw that he has no substance. Nothing.
