Afternoon Meeting

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.

Q: I’ve received so much from being in the presence of masters, and life has showered me with grace. There have been weeks of total silence in my mind, but the experience stopped for some reason and I long to have it again. At the same time, I don’t
Q: Does our genetic conditioning strongly influence our life and behaviour? Can you say more about it? John: Where you’re not in your heart, absolutely. Where you are unconditionally in your heart, at any personal expense, no. Q: Is openness of heart easier or harder depending on what genetics
Q: Hi, John. It’s good to finally meet you. My question is how do you deal with damage that was done because you were vulnerable, you weren’t expecting it and you were wide open? Maybe when you were younger. John: By most delicately receiving injury instead of taking injury.
