When it comes to any imaginable subject, people can be open or closed to it, and it may depend on the specific time, or the specific subject, or the specific circumstance. That’s why it is better for people to find things for themselves, in their own time and circumstance. And we can make that possible by being in a space, inside ourselves, that neither puts them on defense, nor hands it to them without any effort; it’s to be in an inner location to enable them to find it for themselves.

Jeane: I dreamt a lot, but I only remember bits and pieces of it. I remember one dream, it’s like I think you’re there, my dad’s there, and Lee’s there, and it feels like I’m trying to do something to recharge Lee.
And rather than recharging somebody like you usually do when you charge a car, I’m kind of talking about some motion you do with the heart. It’s like a sweeping motion with the heart, or something, that you do in a certain energy corridor between two people. And then she can step into it, or not step into it.
I’m wondering if it will work. And that seems to repeat a couple times.
John: See what you’re doing there is you’re trying to spin a certain vortex, in her nature, and the way you spin it is that some part of yourself recognizes a stillness.
And, although you’re doing something like this, what’s really taking place is that there is a quality of the mirroring, in which that sort of thing is taking place, in terms of you holding a different space inside yourself, in what exists in the environment around you.
And, when you hold that different space, you can elect to just hold that space, or you can elect to try to spin something into a different motion. It’s generally a conductor of practice, or something that might be associated, perhaps, with what certain teachers do. But, ideally speaking, a person doesn’t necessarily have to do that, when the stillness is where they need to catch up with.
There’s a danger in trying to spin something because then that’s going into the identification of what it is that you perceive, and, to some degree, that you take and you spin something, you’re also taking a responsibility in terms of a type of mutability, of your own nature, to be able to go into and recognize that that something other needs to shift a little bit.
It’s a very common in-between step that a person has to contend with because, in the true stillness, per se, you don’t engage in having to inflect this way or that. But, in the physical, in which you run into circumstances in the outer in which there is a mannerism that presides, the tendency is to engage in that mannerism, you seek to do things that create a certain kind of inflection within that mannerism.
And, deep down, everyone is trying to reveal something. As you become more conscious, you’re trying to create the inflection to something that causes them to relate to themselves in a deeper way. A person who doesn’t necessarily know how to relate in a deeper way, who is talking to someone, is always trying to let you know where they’re at, or inform you in terms of how they are. And they see how they are, and where they’re at, as meaningful, because this is the best that they have gotten to in terms of catching up with things.
And if they sense and see that you accept them, or get that, then that is a wonderful experience for them in terms of that way of being. So I’m describing a lesser step there. And then I’m describing an in-between step to something more of the stillness, in which you attempt to spin something, or create an inflection.
And then the hiddenness – and that’s why there are so many hidden teachers – the hiddenness is where you just mirror without actually going out of your way to create an inflection. And they either get it, or they don’t get it, but that’s where you are so surrendered into a stillness, that this is where you are at – as opposed to some kind of in-between approach.
