John & Rebecca's story . . .
At the end of August 2008, when John and Rebecca were running a multi award-winning Organic farm producing humanely-reared meat, John almost died and they started on an incredible journey which has changed both their lives profoundly.
In the moment when John was diagnosed with a cystic brain tumour, and told that he must have brain surgery immediately because the cyst was growing rapidly and his vital signs were going, he experienced a deep inner peace and intense focus at the same time. John was in full acceptance of his circumstances and his desire to live, his life force, was so strong he was able to put all of the energy available to him towards this goal. Rebecca was in a place of full consciousness, nothing else mattered at this time, yet she had a feeling of stillness inside her and more clarity than ever before. They were calm and loving in the eye of the storm.
The spiritual Master, Eckhart Tolle, says "If you have ever been in a life-or-death emergency situation, you will know that it wasn't a problem. The mind didn't have time to fool around and make it into a problem. In a true emergency, the mind stops; you become totally present in the Now, and something infinitely more powerful takes over."
They have great gratitude that it wasn't John's time to go, and now live both of their lives fully, taking immense pleasure in showing others that there can be another way. By inhabiting our bodies, connecting to spirit, and using the mind for it's intended purpose, rather than being at the mercy of it and the emotional chaos that can cause, it is possible to live in this powerful consciousness every day of our lives.
