John de Ruiter Podcast (Spoken)
Canadian Philosopher John de Ruiter is an innovative voice for spiritual evolution, teaching that life's meaning can be known and lived through "core-splitting honesty." In his teens, John awakened to foundational levels of existence. Ever since, his life and teaching have been informed by that direct knowing, a true inspiration that he encourages in others. John's meetings include silence, connection by eye-contact, and dialogue. 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.

How can we manifest the divine? Before you can ascend, you must descend and remain in the quiet deep. As you sustain this in your life you dissolve the barrier between the conscious and the subconscious, eliminating the polarity of what fundamentally drives you; hope and fear. Existing beyond hope and fear, gently letting go of the neediness in the self, leaves you being everything that you've been looking for.

The questioner is noticing a subtle uncomfortable movement of his sexuality, and is asking if it is best to stay in it as still as a lake. John explains that our conscious self is only the tip of the iceberg. When you deeply open, this allows for your subconscious to come up into your conscious self. It is like a deep lake doing a flip: the deep comes to the surface while the surface goes into the deep. That flip is made possible by you belonging to your heart. This is how you get to know your self. It is the transformation of your self.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Title: In Your Heart You Don't Fear Dying.

Date: May 24, 2013 Afternoon - Neve Shalom, Israel Retreat.

Quote: When you hold memories as lightly as you can, it’s no longer for your self; it’s for your heart.

Title: On Personal Boundaries and Meeting with Others

Date: September 9, 2011 Afternoon - Amsterdam, The Netherlands Seminar

Quote: “When you are being what you really are, there is always nurture in your heart despite what you’re thinking or feeling, despite what you’re experiencing in your self or in your person, despite any difficulty. You don’t need your patterning for you to be in that nurture. The nurture has nothing to do with any of the patterning. For you to give or extend that nurture you also don’t need your patterning. For you to meet with someone you don’t need your patterning.”
