The Movement of Meaning is Love

WHEN: November 5, 2015 Afternoon Open Mic

Q: I would love to hear you speak about meaning moving – moving as love. It sounds so intriguing to me.

John: Meaning is fundamental to what we really are. It’s because of that, that as selves and persons we are in pursuit of meaning. We look for meaning because it’s what we come from. In looking for meaning and doing things in our lives to acquire meaning, we’re really misunderstanding. When we’re in pursuit of meaning we neglect that meaning is what we are. So, instead of pursuing meaning, we just simply, most deeply, relax.

As awareness relaxes, awareness realizes it is meaning, and then as meaning, you, meaning, move; you love. The movement of meaning is love. Then, instead of looking for meaning in everything in your life, you’re expressing what you really are as meaning within everything in your life. You realize most profound depth of meaning in everything. You find meaning in everything. You know it and you see it in everything because it’s what you’re being.

When you come from issues in your self, you find issues everywhere. What you come from is what you see outside of your self. When you come from your heart you see heart everywhere. When you come from your own being, you see being everywhere. When you come from meaning, directly – the source of your own being – you’re directly connected to meaning in everything. Your movement as meaning is love, and as love moves, you move meaning outside of your self.

Meaning responds directly to meaning. That puts you, awareness, into the direct, most subtle communion available within everything that’s outside of your self.

I’m Not Getting The Promotion I Deserve!

Q: My husband and I worked very hard last year and didn’t get promoted. What can we do to have our work recognized? We work very hard, do our duty, but there seems to be no justice.

John: Do what you’re already doing without needing to be promoted. That makes you more promotable than when you need to be promoted. Once you both have what you’re looking for, then what will you do?

Q: For some time now I’ve experienced strong bipolar episodes.
