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.

There is a whole gestation period in realizing just one word, in you slowly turning into the meaning of one word...

Gently Letting In Your Past

Q: Sometimes in my connection with you I hit a wall inside. There’s a sense of something bad in me and I wonder about it. When I was eighteen I had an abortion. I was four months pregnant. After the event, I completely cut off from it and put it behind me. I didn’t want to think about it. I realize that somewhere it’s affected my whole life, that on some level I’ve been punishing myself or haven’t really forgiven myself. I never really got down to feeling it...

What You Truly Are Is Grace

Q: I love the truth of what I am beyond my preferences. I can see my inner face in yours and it’s like being in open sunshine. How can I open more to my shadows – those parts of me that I’ve separated from?

John: By seeing the shadows in others – not seeing such shadows with criticism or judgment, but tenderness seeing them. It is only tenderness that has the honesty to see. If someone else’s shadow can in any tiny little way find the same thing in your self, then the shadows of others, instead of being an attraction for irritation, judgment or criticism, are for you a love reflector...
