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.

John: When you are gentled and quieted in your heart, all there really is is that tiny little bit that you know the truth of. That tiny little bit isn’t an understanding; it is the beginning of most delicate beingness...

Speaking Without Fear

Q: I’m afraid to speak in front of people. When I was a child I didn’t speak and I want to learn how to do it.

John: You have a difficulty with speaking because speaking makes you vulnerable. It makes you feel exposed and unsafe. Feeling exposed and unsafe when you speak doesn’t stop or slow you in speaking if your value in speaking is more than feeling safe. 

Be in your heart and speak from your heart. Speaking from your heart will expose your self as being smaller than your heart...

From Boy To Man: Integrating Masculine Sexual Energy

Q: You’ve recently spoken about what being woman is and I’ve been wondering whether it’s really the same to be a man.  

John: At the very base of it, yes. When awareness integrates consciousness, it doesn’t just enter into being both man and woman; it enters into being everything.  

Q: That seems very easy.

John: The only thing in the universe that does not cooperate with what is natural and easy is want and need.  ..
