Edmonton Meetings with John, December 3 – 4  Take Part

John de Ruiter Transcripts

Mined from our archive of more than two decades of teachings, JdR Gems is a sparkling collection of conversations with John, mostly not published before and much too good to miss. They range from tiny tips for everyday life to revealing our deepest destiny, and come from recordings made anywhere John has met with us, including international meetings, livestreams, camping trips, social gatherings and the Jewel Café.

Q: I’d love to hear you speak about learning.

John: Real learning takes place in your self. It comes about when you in your self are informed by what you really are. The learning in your self takes place when something of your self becomes the same as what you really are.

Real learning doesn’t come by acquiring information. It doesn’t even come by acquiring the truth through awakening.

Real learning takes place in the change of your self because of you being what you really are – you being the truth you know in the midst of your self, creating an alchemy of change where your self becomes the same as your being.

More specifically, it comes by you, awareness, relaxing and remaining in your heart while your self is under pressure; staying in your heart while you are in the fire of life, enabling your sense of self to be melted down and reformed.

If there’s purely no story in it, that change is you, in your self, learning.

Q: How can I melt my frozen heart? John: Like that you have a heart, even though it’s frozen. That melts it a little bit. As your heart melts a little bit, you’ll know more. As soon as you know more in your heart, surrender to what you’re knowing.
Q: I’ve received so much from being in the presence of masters, and life has showered me with grace. There have been weeks of total silence in my mind, but the experience stopped for some reason and I long to have it again. At the same time, I don’t
Q:  My question is how to get to my next level of awareness. I’ve suffered a lot of pain this year and had an emergency operation. I didn’t see how dangerous the situation was. I stayed in my pain and arrived at the hospital almost at the last moment.
Q: When I saw you a few days ago with some other people, I saw something embodied that struck me. I can clearly see essential qualities and beings in people. It’s an unearthly quality, as if it would need the whole world to sustain it. I had the impression
