John de Ruiter Podcast
John de Ruiter is a Canadian author and spiritual leader. He holds weekly meetings from his home base in Edmonton, Alberta, where he established the College of Integrated Philosophy in 2006. John has been offering seminars online and in Alberta since 2020, resulting in conversations with people all over the world. As an innovative voice for spiritual evolution, John de Ruiter teaches that life's meaning can be known and lived through "core-splitting honesty," a concept he discovered in his teens after a profound awakening to foundational levels of existence. Ever since, John’s life and teaching have been informed by that direct knowing. His desire to communicate these ideas led to two books, “The Intelligence of Love: Manifesting Your Being in This World” and “Unveiling Reality.” John’s teachings focus on a willingness to let go of your ego and desires: He draws a distinction between your self and your soul, as well as your mind and your being. When teaching a group, John prefers to interact with audience members one-on-one, rather than addressing a whole crowd. This method results in fascinating and intimate dialogues.

Title: A Listening Heart for Knowing.

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

Quote: When you give your energy to what you know, it comes back to you and you have something that you know to build with. When you build a self only based on what you know the truth of, your self becomes like an energy reserve. Your self becomes resilient and it’s able to handle very much.

Title: Belong to the More that You Already Know.

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

Quote: You don’t come into the more without responding to what you already know. You don’t come into the more without belonging to knowing. Surrender to what you know and you’ll know more.

Title: An Invitation to Look Into Meaning.

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

Quote: When you feel empty, that’s your invitation to not look into what you are accustomed to; it’s your invitation to not look into your practice of life; it’s your invitation to look into meaning.

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. When you hold memories strongly, when you hold them and keep them strongly to your self, trying to keep them in your experience, you are desensitized to what is deeper. You are desensitized to your real connectivity within.

Title: One Touch of Meeting.

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

Quote: The softer your heart is the less that your past is forming your present and your future. When there is openness and softness of heart, what forms the present and the future is not your past but the reality of your own being.

Title: Having Goodness Vision.

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

Quote: Aside from what appeals or doesn’t appeal to your self, discern the truth of the environment that you are to be in, based on what you know, not based on anything in your self.

Title: You Need to Love. 

Date: May 23, 2013 Morning - Neve Shalom, Israel Retreat. 

Quote: When you love because you're in your heart, without any focus in your self, you are deepening into what is next. As you deepen into what is next, without any kind of understanding, what is next opens. It opens into your heart and it moves. It moves as you love.
