A tiny touch of awakening has landed in this person, but she’s afraid it will never grow. Through the metaphor of caring for a little fruit tree, John shares the shift of attention needed for the tree to flourish, no matter what.
In this conversation John describes the effect on our subconscious selves of a lifetime spent believing what we don’t actually know to be true. He reveals the way forward, from the darkness of false belief to the creation of a self of light.
Responding to a question about how consciousness and unconsciousness become one, John describes how realization, or its lack, forms the basis of our reality. A reality governed by experience or by what truly nurtures and satisfies us.
How can we open our heart toward another when there are unpleasant emotions involved? John explains how the need to diminish these negative feelings only feeds them and that it is possible to flourish, deepen and develop in the midst of any difficulty.
