Commentary on The Zero Point Agreement—How to Be Who You Already Are by Julie Tallard Johnson

Posted on Sunday, November 24th, 2013

“How blessed we are to have teachers to show us how to climb the mountain [of knowledge] and sail the ocean [of body awareness].” The Lunar Tao by Deng Ming-Dao

Julie Tallard Johnson is one of those teachers. She not only knows both terrains, but also that good teachers can only point the way—they cannot take the journey for their students.

So. . .pick up this book only if you are prepared to learn by doing. . .by practicing at least some of the many ways Johnson suggests for climbing the mountain and sailing the sea. You won’t be alone; she, her teachers (whose quotes accentuate Johnson’s teachings), and their teachers going back centuries, provide the ground for you to walk on as you make your way in to your own center.

For the most important teaching Johnson provides is that the treasures you seek are already yours, and once you give up the search for them in the world, you will find them within. Give up the search for meaning, and make meaning of all the circumstances of your life.

“The zero point agreement states that you take one hundred percent responsibility for your experiences.”
