Your Body: The Gateway To Your Soul

WHEN: October 17, 2001 Afternoon Meeting

“An unusual and deeply nurturing teaching from long ago. John speaks the words very slowly.” – JdR Gems Editor

Q: I want to talk about something I’ve been dealing with my whole life. It’s the body I’m living in – my body. Deep inside there’s such a wish to live in freedom with it, but I can’t let some things go. I’m so ashamed of my body. I treat it with diets, and had an operation some years ago.

John: Let your body be your kindest friend. Let it teach you how to be in it.

Your own body is the gateway to your soul.

Be gentle with your body.

Be only kind to your body, and through it you will find your own soul.

Q: I am so afraid of letting things be as they are.

John: Then you will be very unlike your own soul.

In you not being gentle with your body and only kind to your body, then it is you that is splitting your self.

Enjoy dwelling in your body, regardless of what you think your body looks like or feels like.

Enjoy dwelling in your body. It is your own body that is your home.

Home is in your body. It is not in changing your body.

Q: So often I don’t feel like I am at home in this body. Sometimes I feel unable to love it.

John: Be at home in your body, regardless of what you think it looks like or feels like.

Your body welcomes you. Be welcomed by your body.

As soon as you are being welcomed by your body, the whole universe changes.

You will begin to see the universe as it really is, instead of seeing it the way that you see your body.

Q: Does it take a long time?

John: Only as long as it takes for you to give permission.

You will not belong in this universe until you truly belong in your body.

The way that you are treating your body, that is how you are treating what you know.

Your relationship with your body shows you your relationship with truth.

The Menstrual Cycle: An Invitation Into Your Mystery

Q: I wanted to ask you about menstruation. During that time of month, or at least the week before, I am in so much pain in my heart. Does that come from my self?

John: The different hormones moving in your body are going to put your self under pressure. So it doesn’t come from your self, it comes from the hormones. But the self that you have isn’t prepared to deal with those hormones. It brings it under pressure.

Q: Is that what creates the pain in my heart?

Attention Deficit Disorder And Your Use Of Mind

Q: I have a question about ADD. When I’m studying, thoughts come and I can’t focus anymore. I am able to go within and be in my heart whilst it’s happening, but I am still not able to study.

John: Then you’re going into your heart but you’re not bringing your heart into your thinking. It’s easy for you to go into your heart. To bring your heart into your thinking is difficult. 

When you bring your heart into your thinking, that brings you into your present development in how you use your mind and your thinking.
