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.

Dark Energies And Your Untouchable Heart

Q: I want to get clear about what seems like a demon that repeatedly comes in bringing pain, as if to say, “now you have to look at it.” Are there, perhaps, dark energies? How can I be with them?

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...
