Excerpt from an Open Mic meeting with John de Ruiter on February 7, 2017 afternoon in Tiruvannamalai, India.
Q: For some time I’ve been getting a sense of the ‘us’ as the form of the one being and that you’re pivotal in moving ‘us’ into form as the one being. It seems to be opening up more and more and I wondered if you could fill out something about the connectivity of ‘us’ and how it relates to the calling, or what you are coming from?
John: What I’m bringing together through the movement of being, particularly its deeper levels, is the forming of a body of being in so many of us, where a being on the level of form that we’re familiar with in our selves, having a body through which to move in everything that is seen. As this begins to form in so many, what also then comes about in the movement of that is our body of being; our being manifested in us, visibly. A one body of being. In moving as one body of being, in being what we know, all in levels deeper than our selves but manifested in our selves, we move each other. We don’t just move with each other. In you moving what moves you, that is of your being, we are moved, and our listening is becoming attuned to that. If anyone moves as a being, we move. It is so beautifully delicate and increasingly less fragile.
Q: What I know in those experiences of connectivity is that’s the seen level, but there’s much more happening under my radar.
Q: And this is for this world, in preparation for what the calling is bringing?
John: It isn’t at all for this world. It is all for our humanness.
Q: But it would have an effect on this world?
John: It has effect on our humanness. As that really catches in this world, it will destabilize this world. Our humanness is real. This world, in how it’s configured and what holds it together, is artificial and temporary.
Q: Perhaps I should be using the words ‘this planet’ instead of ‘this world’, but humanness belongs on this planet. Is that one small form of the calling or is there much, much more?
John: In as much as it opens in our humanness, which is in the heart, the rest of the planet awakens. We are the power-holders. Without the power-holders home, the rest of the planet isn’t going to really open.
Q: I’m knowing the urgency and immediacy, so as we come in closer to that vortex the responsibility as beings and hearts heightens and intensifies?
John: Until we are cornered or we might begin to listen to what we know within. As we come into the vortex and the vortex is our life, as the vortex is being embodied, present, in person, the vortex begins to set the tone in the planet and to that the beingness of the planet responds.
Q: The first embodiment and the responsibility is in the little details of our life coming in the clearest beingness?
John: If you be this in the little things, you will be this in the big things that come along.
Q: I love that. Can I ask another question? It’s to do with the rhythm of being that you’ve talked about and you’ve given analogies of the tide coming in, going out, day and night. I sense it’s not as linear as that but as you move closer to the vortex, does the rhythm of being increase?
John: Deeper levels of the rhythm open.
Q: Because sometimes I feel like I’m in a decrease, but there’s movement of my being in perhaps a meeting, or being touched by someone, or it can seem like it changes many times in one day. Is that a more surface level of the rhythm of being?
John: The deeper levels of its rhythm open up first as a resonance. If you’re listening to your self, you miss it. Where you are gentled and quieted within, you know the resonance, but not through any kind of understanding, not through experience. You just know something and as you’re in response to that, you enter a level of quietude that you didn’t know before; quietude in the midst of all of your movement which begins to set the tone of your movement, which brings your being into your self. It doesn’t need to be understood for you, awareness, without the use of your forms; it’s all beautifully intuitive. You don’t move in it because you understand or because you see, but because you know. As you know to move, and you then move as awareness because you know, even though you know not how, in the movement you then know the beingness of that movement. That beingness is the how. As you’re being it, you realize how. As you move in that in your self and in your life, you then understand the how.
Q: Thank you, John.
