It’s Time: Responding To The Call Of Greater Reality

Q: I heard a blackbird singing and felt a little envious because he’s doing what he purely is, and he will die without complaint having done all he could. That’s what we try to accomplish, and I sensed that this is what you do. Can you tell me what is so special about being human?

John: We are the up-and-coming super-beings on the planet in waiting – in waiting because we know that we are about more than what we’re experiencing. We know more than what our selves are...

The Ultimate Power Of Pure You, Your First Love

Q: My question is: what is it that I most need to hear?

John: The tiniest little bit that’s never changed. Throughout the decades of your life it’s been a constant, and without realizing it in your mind and in your understanding, it’s also your first love. It is your beloved. What that is, is most delicate okayness. Any time that you’ve turned to it and lived from it, even for a little bit of time, the fountain of goodness returns to your life. 

That tiny little bit, that unconditioned okayness, that tender okayness within, just as is, is your home, and there isn’t anything that you need to do first for you to be that...

Living The Truth Of What You Really Are

Q: I love this. I love the quiet. I love the deep. I feel sad that in my life I’ve looked so many places, gone to so many schools and never been told what I’m feeling here. My whole life I’ve been very focused on results. They seem to be an important way for me to evaluate or discern, but from what I’m hearing, there’s an inquiry inside where results don’t count. How can I practise that?

John: What you really are is depth and quality. It isn’t personal and it isn’t individual, so in what you really are there’s no sense at all of a “who.” When you’re being what you really are, there is no “who.”

Who you are doesn’t exist in what you really are...

The Real Purpose Of Your Life

Q: I’m longing to know the purpose of my life.

John: You don’t need one. It’s only in your self that you’re able to even comprehend a sense of purpose. When you can be happy without any reason at all, you’re just beginning to fulfill your life’s purpose.

Anything that you do with the use of your self that gives you a sense of purpose isn’t telling you the truth.

When you can be deeply happy without any reason at all then you also realize that it doesn’t matter very much what you do in this life...

Goals, Happiness And Your Real Foundation

Q: We’ve been talking about the importance of life goals. I think my life needs to be the way I like it with my goals fulfilled. That’s the life I think will make me happy.

John: Are those people around you who have fulfilled their superficial, worldly goals happier than you?

Q:  I don’t know but I think I would be happier with my goals fulfilled!

John: This is important...

Your Higher Power is in Your Weakest Weakness

Q: I seem to have lost faith in a higher power and also a faith in myself. Can you help me with that?

John: Instead of looking for a bigger power, power in yourself or a higher power, begin with the power that has the greatest reach in you. It isn’t found in your strength. It isn’t found in your beliefs. It’s found in the midst of your weakness, and not just your weakness but most particularly your weakest weakness.

Within your weakest weakness there isn’t anything that holds you together; there is no relationship to power…

The Movement of Meaning is Love

Q: I would love to hear you speak about meaning moving – moving as love. It sounds so intriguing to me.

John: Meaning is fundamental to what we really are. It’s because of that, that as selves and persons we are in pursuit of meaning. We look for meaning because it’s what we come from. In looking for meaning and doing things in our lives to acquire meaning, we’re really misunderstanding. When we’re in pursuit of meaning we neglect that meaning is what we are…

What is My Life’s Purpose?

Q: How do I learn and live my life’s purpose?

John: By first so deeply not needing a life purpose. You’re burdened with wanting to have purpose; it blinds you of any authentic purpose. When you’re trying to have it, you can’t see it. When want and need looks for purpose, all it finds is want and need. It finds lack. First you need to come to complete rest in what has, in you, no lack whatsoever. So there isn’t even the thought or the feeling of a need for a purpose…

Your Nervous System Aligned to the Beyond

Q: As I sit here, I feel like I’m on a boat alone and the water is still and there’s no wind. I’m standing at the front of the boat, and I know that I’m waiting for something, and yet I don’t know what. When I woke up this morning, the words that came to me were ‘bring it on.’ What brought me to the chair was my daughter, the purity in her heart. I want to ask you to show me what needs cleaning in me.

John: If your personal life has a position of prominence, you won’t have a horizon, within, that is beyond your own life…
