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.

John: Yes, there are dark energies and they can only work with you, influence and be a part of you when you‘re feeding your conditioning.

Q: So when I don’t feed them they have no entrance?

John: Yes.

Q: Is it the same when there are people with this energy around them?..

Fifty-Two Living Concepts: What Words Are For

Q: You have been talking about the intellect. I’m not an intellectual type; I’m more oriented to feeling.

John: Yet you have an intellect and you can use that to help that which you already know, and you can also feel.

Q: I can feel what you mean, but if I had to put it in words, I wouldn’t know where to start.

John: Then on your own, love beginning. Use your intellect sensitively to give structure to what you feel of what you know...

The Calling And The Awakening Of The Planet

Q: For some time I’ve been getting a sense of the “us” as the form of the one being, and that you’re pivotal in moving “us” into form as the one being. It seems to be opening up more and more. I wondered if you could fill out something about the connectivity of “us” and how it relates to the calling, or what you are coming from?

John: What I’m bringing together through the movement of being, particularly its deeper levels, is the forming of a body of being in so many of us, where a being on the level of form that we’re familiar with in our selves is having a body through which to move in everything that is seen...
