What’s The Right Path For Me?

WHEN: October 24, 2002 Afternoon Meeting

Q: Four years ago I retired from work and I felt the need to travel all over the world, thinking that this was to support my spiritual journey. I’ve kept on travelling and sometimes I feel that I’m a bit lost. Can you help me find out if I’m on the right path for what I have to do?  

John: When you look into a baby’s eyes you’ll find the qualities that you’re looking for. Identify within your heart what you are seeing from your heart, and exist to embody that. 

There is not an appropriate practice. A practice will have you doing something that is more limiting within than what you are looking for within. It is much more simple to be absorbed by tenderness within, giving you very tender seeing. A system of belief or practice will only distract you from what you are actually looking for.  

What you are looking for within is as simple and as obvious as what you would find in a baby’s face. Let such fine qualities very gently permeate everything that you are. That is how you unveil, within, where it is that you came from and what it is that you’re looking for.  

You are not actually lost. You just do not have, within your view, your first love within. You’re looking because you know that it’s there, but it is much more simple, and wonderful, and obvious than you thought.

Instead of looking for something big, be open to see what is very subtle. It is all within the subtle. When that is your seeing, then it is obvious to see.

It is not something to look for. It is something to presently enjoy.

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. We’ve tried to get along but I can no longer be in the same room with him. When I visit, I ask that he is not there. It’s all starting to make me ill. Even my grand-children are aware of it now and ask us to be nice to each other…
