They are an opportunity to come to rest while actively realizing deeper levels of being human, knowing what we really are, and allowing that greater reality to change our lives.

What is true individuality? How are we different and what is it that makes us the same? How would we change, as humanity, if we connect as beings rather than selves?

Edmonton, Canada Autumn Seminar - October 10, 2017 Afternoon
 
The brain is mostly still a mystery to us. Science research is attempting to discover and unlock the brain's full potential, yet answers are scarce. In this dialogue, John delves deep into the true role of the brain. When we are being the deepest level that we know, we unleash the brain’s greatest power. In being direct knowledge, our brain is able to synapse with another brain, sharing one brain and one nervous system, unrestricted by form.

Pardes Hana, Israel Meeting - May 2, 2012 Evening. 
 
The questioner had an experience where the structure of herself dissolved and everything was love. But when the experience dissipated, old structures returned. John explains that the experience is a beloved messenger. Instead of wanting the messenger to return, we can abide in the message it brings. When the knowing in the experience is enough, we become the same as the message.

Pardes Hana, Israel Retreat - May 2, 2012 Evening
 
What to do when wonderful awakening experiences fade away, and resistance, fear and suffering return to our experience? John reminds us that we know something much deeper within, which is different than our self. Suffering is in the self, it comes from what is familiar. There is no suffering in knowing, in being in what knowing is in our heart and there is no suffering in the purity of liking. Liking knowing the deep within removes the suffering. It is easy, natural, direct and immediate.

Moen, Denmark Retreat - June 4, 2016 Aft
 
The questioner experienced an awakening but finds it difficult to stay in it because of stress and pain. John explains that this is because she is relating to her awakening from her self instead of relating directly without “keeping an eye” on her self. John speaks of the stream of what we know; when we merge with what we know in our heart we are in the stream. Then, instead of emotion and experience moving, it’s our heart that is moving, which is deeply transformative to our self. The awakening is newly found and the stress in the self dissolves.

Cologne, Germany Event - January 24, 2013 Evening

The questioner describes having been awakened to a deep energy of pure love within, and yet suffering still continues. John explains that the suffering is in the self, while the love is not. The love is your home.

Your self suffers because it is not complete. You are complete. You do not need to suffer. That puts your self in your care. Then, every difficulty that you have in your self will have you coming more deeply from the love that you have awakened to, within.

When you awaken to more than this mundane existence, how can you make that real in your life? How can you let it have more form in your life? How to get out of the matrix?
The answer, John says, is in letting the roots of your awakening go to your being. Then, like a tree, you become planted in what you really are, planted in your source.

Edmonton, Canada Spring Seminar - April 14, 2017 Afternoon 
 
The questioner describes an experience in which he saw a shell around him, blocking him from being in his heart and experiencing life fully. John explains that this shell is common to many; it is made of forms of illusion that we have empowered. John shows us how to give our power, through our heart, to what we actually know the truth of. We become free of the shell and its confining influence.

Edmonton, Canada Meeting - January 4, 2000 

What is the purpose of sleep? Is it to replenish our body or is there a deeper meaning to the cycle of sleep? Why do we dream? John explains the difference between going to sleep in patterns and tightness, and going to sleep matching our being. In matching our being, there is a different kind of freshness when we wake up, having been washed, during sleep, through all of the depths of our being. Going to sleep can be one of the most awesome times of the day.

Yehiam, Israel Retreat - April 6, 2014 Afternoon

The questioner feels connected to her heart when she is being silent, but when she speaks she feels disconnected. How to speak from the heart? John explains how we are able to open our hearts in the midst of our life, regardless of the experience in our selves. We are able to not close even when there’s pain or discomfort. If we are okay with the cost of that, our selves will change, grow, develop, and purify.

In these dialogues, John explains how we can live that deep peace in life, a life no longer formed by good or bad things happening to us but by what we are being in it.

Edmonton, Canada Meetings - July 03, 2000

A man is asking how he can regain his innocence in the context of sexuality. John explains that sexuality is the hearts capacity to experience true oneness with another. For a man, the penis is truly the highest and the most exquisite of the expressions of truth, the most sacred. Moving in want and need reduces the energy of the penis to the lowest, most coarse. Sexuality has no meaning until the whole of this energy is freed from having to be in the mind. John explains in practical terms how the penis can simply return home and then it is no longer the lowest and the coarsest energy in the mind, but it is now the highest and the finest energy in the heart.

In this podcast the questioner speaks of his sense of readiness to connect more deeply and enter more of his being. Johns response takes us from a whisper of whats deeper, beyond the perspective of our familiar selves, into unseen levels of love. After turning over control to our being, letting incomprehensible being overtake your mind, we come back to our everyday selves with a renewed awareness of the eternal nature of real connection.

He explains knowing and awakening to something other than your self, what happens to us when awareness is distorted, and how to easily and naturally come out of that distortion into a true way of being.

A Golden Oldie from Edmonton, Canada Meetings on April 18, 2003. 

 

Questioner: If before we are born we are in a place of absolute peace, and, if after we die we return to a place of absolute peace, what’s the point for us to just go through this life? Wouldn’t it be easier just to kind of skip over this part?

Listen to this golden oldie for an introduction to the meaning of life.
