Authentic Anger

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 25 June, 2017 Q: I don’t know what authentic anger is. When I’ve been angry it’s been very emotional and out of control. So I avoid it. James: Yes. Most of us avoid anger, particularly if we’re English! Our conditioning is that anger is bad all the way through. And when we add spirituality on top of that, it’s super bad. But in not having any relationship with anger, what tends to happen is that it either comes in one burst and completely takes us over, like you say, and we come…

Nothing Looking, Nothing Being Seen

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 25 June, 2017 Q: You talked this morning about nothing – nothing looking, nothing being seen. I think that needs a little bit of expansion. James: Yes. Let’s go through it again, because I think it’s worth going through it again and again and again. So conventionally, we’re in here (points to his head) looking out through here (points to his eyes) on a world of separate, independently existing objects. But when we look deeply into that belief we realise that no, actually there’s this awareness, and our body parts, thoughts, feelings and…

Using Spirituality As Another Escape From Life

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 13 May, 2017 James: Realising what it is that you truly are, and that life itself isn’t separate from that, that you are being life, that You, capital Y, or whatever else you want to call ‘it’ – Awareness, Presence, whatever – is actually being life itself, can be a real “Wow!” recognition. But even so, for most of us, all the psychological suffering that’s been going on for a lifetime will still carry on. I had a real wake-up call once. I was hearing someone praying – praying for all the people…

Crucifixion And Resurrection

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 15 April, 2017 Q: I like sitting up here with you James and there’s sort of a taste for it somewhere, and then there’s a frustration at it too. James: Tell me about the frustration. Q: I can’t f****ng get it! James: How’s that frustration showing up. Try and get wise to the body now. “I can’t f****ng get it.” How is that showing up physically? Q: I suppose now immediately it comes back as a sadness here. (points to the chest) James: Great. There it is. Bring it back. Follow the…

Working With Gritty Sensations

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 15 April, 2017 Q: I can drop the story momentarily, but there is still sensation. And the sensation is, not constantly, but typically recently, is pretty heavy. James: Great. So we come back to the start again. Simple. Child-like. Here we are. Whatever-we-are. And we notice that whatever-we-are, that’s here, has this quality of being aware. Aware of the visual image, of sounds, smells and tastes, as well as thoughts, feelings and sensations, all coming and going, while this that we are, that is aware, doesn’t come and go, but remains constant…

The difference between Freedom and Self-realisation

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 15 April, 2017 Q: I read something a couple of weeks ago, and it stayed in my head and I’ve been looking at it, because it was saying there’s a difference between freedom and Self-realisation. They don’t go hand in hand. I think I had a wrong belief or something there. I had always thought, like most people, that Self-realisation is the destination. And yet your approach, which seems to me to be not unique but slightly different, is almost like the Self-realisation bit, which I kind of get – the impersonal…

Gratitude is the flavour of You

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 15 April, 2017 Q: Hearing you say “Thank You” has reminded me of what I’m constantly curious about, which is gratitude. I’m very curious about where it comes from, and where it goes to. Particularly where it goes to. Because I don’t really know. And sometimes I’m really aware of it being a bargaining tool. Sometimes it just arises out of nowhere and just floods and fills and I go, “Where did you come from? And where are you going?” (Silent connecting) James: For me, as this starts to open up and…

The True Ground

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 28 March, 2017 James: I love the image of a sapling, a young tree – the ground is there supporting its growth, so that its branches and leaves can dance with the wind, can be flowing and open. But it’s rooted, it has that stability in which to play, in which to express, in which to reveal its full glory. This ground (the earth) is like a metaphor for the ultimate, true ground – for wholeness. In this human experience we all come from wholeness and then, at a young age, we…

The Hall Of Mirrors

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 28 March, 2017 Q: Hi James: Hi (long, silent connecting) Q: So it’s interesting. I feel like I haven’t offered enough content to have access to this space – the connection. It’s like I have to pay a price, of like: “Where’s all my shadow that I’ve gotta bring up here and show everyone?” So this is not ok. James: Great. Yes. This is ok. You can have it for free. Q: Oh really! Can I have that tenner back?! (lots of laughter in the room) Oh, money’s not an issue, really….

The Need To Make It ‘Right’

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 28 March, 2017 Q: Before the first person came up to sit on the chair, I went through a real dance. I felt so good when I came in – I was so relaxed, and in such a nice space – and then when nobody came up I got in a panic, in a real panic. The heat was rising up as if my head would explode. I always feel a bit uncomfortable when nobody comes up, but never like today. James: That’s interesting. Why is that do you think? Q: I…
