Big Picture Connection
Genealogy helps us answer deep questions: Who are we? Where did we come from? I think it, and reason, shows that even though everyone changes, everyone stays connected. Physically, science agrees with this connection, and says not only everyone, but everything was one before the Big Bang and even time, itself. Read my books, Love Theory of Everything (unedited/pre-published) and Have Faith in Love, to understand why I believe this connection is love.
Love is supreme, our timeless connection.
Being connected beyond time isn’t simply forever, it is NOW …and it is ANY TIME or PLACE you can possibly imagine!

What about other deep questions: Why are we here? Where are we going? What’s it all mean? After much research and reflection I have a conclusion, and I share it with my books, Love Theory of Everything, and Have Faith in Love.
“Within us is the soul of the whole, the wise silence, the universal beauty, to which every part and particle is equally related; the eternal One. When it breaks through our intellect, it is genius; when it breaks through our will, it is virtue; when it flows through our affections, it is love.”
Cousin Ralph Waldo Emerson (info),

Book Quotes by John K. Brown
“First stage is knowing the truth, second is not knowing the truth, third is realizing the paradox.” – Chapter 1: The Light
“Everything good is good because of the love it contains.” – Chapter 2: Love
“The type of nothing from which something can arise is truly something.” – Chapter 3: The Universe
“Truth is, something exists, and everything exists for a reason. Regardless if the reason is known or unknown, knowable or unknowable, reason exists and can be named.” – Chapter 4: Is There a God?
“That which isn’t love, isn’t god.” – Chapter 5: The Supreme Reality

descriptions of the same reality.” – Chapter 6: Is There a Soul and Afterlife?
“I used to be terrified of death. My grandfather was terminal in the hospital across from my high school, yet I never visited him. That fact still haunts me to this day. Years later, my arms were around my grandmother as she struggled with her last breaths. I told her we were with her and everything was going to be okay. She died as I held her tightly and I felt her body lose life. It was the most peaceful moment I ever experienced, and I felt joy for her. It was an emotional, intellectual, and spiritual moment for me. I wasn’t afraid anymore…. One day years later I received the phone call every parent dreads. My daughter was in a serious automobile accident. As I raced to her I prepared myself for the news she had died. Once again, I felt an unexpected and profound emotion. She lived, but in the face of that horrifying time there was a strange overall calm. I realized, no matter what, everything was going to be okay. I remembered I wasn’t afraid anymore.” – Chapter 6: Is There a Soul and Afterlife?
“Metagapism is the belief that love is the ultimate reality, literally god and the one shared soul, and the source, nature and destiny of all.” – Chapter 7: The Way
“If you are religious, pray. If you are philosophical, contemplate. If you are spiritual, meditate.” – Chapter 7: The Way
“The average human lifespan compared to the age of the universe is the same as comparing a blink of an eye to that human lifespan. Relatively speaking, short and long lifespans are the same. Both are non-existent compared to the infinite that’s ahead. Furthermore, we cannot change the past, and have no guarantees for the future. We are only in charge of the present. The present is nothing—and it is everything.” – Chapter 7: The Way
Have Faith in Love Video Summary
1 – The Light
No truth or goodness ever dies, or can die.
Everything real dies. Everything real lasts forever.
Love is truth, faith, wisdom … and paradox.
Enlightenment is the ability to comprehend what’s not possible to understand.
2 – Love
Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
The best life actively loves on three levels: self, others, all.
Love the moment and the energy of the moment will spread beyond all boundaries.
Everything good is good because of the love it contains.
3 – The Universe
The type of nothing from which something can arise is truly something.
Everything is change. There is no creation, and it is all creation.
Love is something eternal; the aspect may change, but not the essence.
Love is the creative reason for the universe.
4 – Is There a God?
I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in us all.
People don’t believe in god because others have problematic notions of god’s nature.
Everything exists for a reason. Knowable or unknowable, reason exists, and can be named.
There is something greater than ourselves.
5 – The Supreme Reality
That which isn’t love, isn’t god.
Love isn’t self-centered, even on the supreme scale. Freedom is love’s paradox.
Love is god. Love and the universe are part of each other.
Just as we will never grasp the full meaning of God, we will never grasp the full meaning of love.
6 – Is There a Soul and Afterlife?
I sought my soul, but my soul I could not see. I sought my God, but my God eluded me. I sought my brother and I found all three.
Love is soul. The soul is shared by all and divine.
Eternal life, reincarnation, and nothingness are descriptions of the same reality beyond spacetime.
What love we’ve given, we’ll have forever. What love we fail to give will be lost for all eternity.
7 – The Way
Metagapism is the belief that love is the ultimate reality, literally god and the one shared soul, the source, nature and destiny of all.
There are many paths to the same truth. If you are religious, pray. If you are philosophical, contemplate. If you are spiritual meditate. (If you are nothing, do nothing.)
Love is god, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source
…forever, as one love with you, and all.
This is My Faith
Love is supreme, our timeless connection.
Love is God, the supreme reality,
eternal paradox, all pure love combined.
Love is our soul, our essense,
our supreme connection, with God, each other, and all.
Ultimately, all truth is faith.
Something exists, and everything exists for a reason.
Known or unknown, knowable or unknowable,
reason exists, and is supreme.
If creation is something from nothing there was no creation,
as only nothing can come from nothing.
Something has always existed,
God, supreme love as a timeless state of change:
chance, necessity, choice and potential.
Higher love isn’t self-centered, even at the supreme scale.
We are a paradox of one connected soul and free will.
Love is supreme, not power, force or control.
Love means God is real, not of traditional myth.
The freedom to love is the freedom not to love.
This is why evil can exist with a supremely good God.
That which isn’t love, isn’t God or supreme.
Love exists on three ascending levels:
Eros, the base, is the passionate attraction of aesthetical beauty.
It is sensual pleasure for oneself.
Philia, the crucial step, is the compassionate kindness of ethical virtue.
It is care and concern for others.
Agape, the apex, is the dispassionate reality of metaphysical essentiality.
It is oneness with all.
Jesus said love is supreme.
I believe this, and believe in Eastern ideas of paradox and peace,
and Native American ideas of nature and respect, as key to higher love.
There are many paths to the same truth,
and despite the problems of tradition, and symbolism,
only intolerance deserves intolerance.
No organization or belief has a monopoly on matters of faith.
Eternal life, reincarnation, and nothingness
are aspects of the same timeless reality.
Timeless isn’t just forever in the future, or after we die.
It isn’t just all time, it’s some time, and all times.
It’s beyond time, between time,
and even to the point of it being no time, or not applicable.
After death, time and space are meaningless,
as are existence and non-existence.
This is the highest love: oneness with all,
the paradox of timeless connection.
It means don’t worry, everything is going to be okay.
