Something Needed

vanishing-point_01Often, when someone, or something, is in need, we are at our best. We overcome the obstacles that are in the way because we understand what is at stake, and the importance of rising to the occasion. In the outer world, these situations can be easy to see. On an inner level we may only feel them very subtly but, as this dream image shows, the consequences can be just as dire. So our dreams can help us by showing us the importance of a connection. Here, a man drives a car across country to reach his family in need; what seeks to derail his journey is less important than reaching the goal.

Jeane: When I first woke up last night it was because I was coughing a lot, and it felt like rather than remember a dream I was just remembering a few minutes of a movie I’d watched before going to bed.

And the movie was about a man who was driving a classic car, a Dodge Charger, across the desert trying to get to his wife and daughter who were in the hospital. And he keeps having to evade policemen and others who chase him because they’re assuming if he’s going fast he must be… well, he’s either running into a speed trap, or he must be running drugs, he must be doing something else, you know, so everybody keeps getting after him from one state to another.

One person even chases him in a car that’s a black version of the white car that he’s driving, so it’s kind of a symbolic movie. And that movie just seemed to be on my mind a lot about the chase, plus my nephew has just gotten the same kind of a car, a Dodge Charger, which is kind of a muscle car, to restore, so I must have been associating it in some way.

And it just seemed to be this sensation of being in the desert because he was driving across Monument Valley and, you know, all the different colors like Monument Valley, you have a white car versus a black car, and the speed of it trying to chase. So, initially, it was like I was just trying to work with the cough and feeling sick, and then that movie was on my mind a lot. And then I had a dream.

John: So what you’re talking about, what you’re describing, what the energetic is, what you’re seeking to figure out, what you’re trying to close in on is a format, a methodology, a mannerism, a schematic upon which to proceed from A to B, between two points.

And so you’re still trying to sort that out in a way that comes across, so that it’s non-combative for one thing, meaning there is no chase or anything like that involved. 2) It’s not too fast for the situation, which means that you’re not creating a vacuum, or a desert kind of vibratoriness in which there’s nothing able to be denoted because your approach to yourself is out of twang with what is in the environment, is out of twine with connecting to what you need to connect to, that is in an environment.

In other words, the environment that you’re having to connect with is something that is needed, and there needs to be a relating in terms of that which is needed, which is in a hospital. And so what’s happening in terms of catching up with the, we’ll call it, hospitalized side of yourself is you have to find the right tone, space, mannerism, speed or however you want to say it.

Basically the overreaching schematic of the dream was that of, how do you come up with the means of communication that is able to make something, bring something clearly through, in a knowable way?

And so what you’re doing with this energetic of the dream is you’re looking at the characteristics, or mannerisms, in which your listening center is adhering through a process, or a flow, that needs to be aligned, that needs to be in sync more with bringing something from A to B. That’s what you’re doing is you’re playing with this A to B, and the way you’re playing with it yet is more of a kind of mystery.

In other words, the dream is there to cause something to sort, or streamline, in a way that facilitates a going from A to B. And to facilitate that, you have to contend with whatever there is that’s a discombobulation in bringing that clearly through. And so you’re working on sorting that out in your dream.

A Pristine Place

6-3Discovering uncharted territories is a passionate pursuit for humans: the New World, the  depths of the ocean, outer space. It is natural for us to want to claim new space. But what if that inclination in us is really built into our design so that we can bring consciousness to what is unconscious? Created so we could discover what is on the inside? Because when we shine the light of our attention into new places, so much more becomes possible – particularly for our journey. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in the dream, I am inclined to believe that I may be doing something wrong when I lose myself like that, but then of course when you wake up you realize, oh my goodness, it’s amazing what’s going on here. Because the dream is pointing out that in the emptiness, and stillness, and a letting go, I’m able to access within a place therein that I am able to merge into, and merge with.

In other words, it’s not like it’s separate, it’s part of me. It comes out and it automatically sweeps everything into it. And this is a merging into a wholeness that energetically permeates all of life, and it permeates it from the inner level.

That is why you don’t try to control, or regulate, the light because it’s controlling things from the inner level and you in the outer then would be imposing controls that prevent this from permeating. So the idea of it being a problem, in other words, the fact that it sweeps over everything like it does is just a pun, because when you settle back you see that there’s a wonderful result in being able to take in a flow, through one’s self, that is connected inner and outer, and outer and inner; it flows.

So that’s the meditation dream; so that has to be broken down. And so, in my dream, I proceed, or take you, to a past in which I had lived which is in Hungry Horse. And we go to Hungry Horse to where there is a river that flows through the area, and the river is at the lowest level I’ve ever seen, so low that I am able to cross the river to the other side, which is something I have never done before.

When I was a kid there I never did this. There are others there that give you concern, just seeing them. It’s just they were hooligans or something, but I know everything is okay. In other words, they’re kind of trying to like maybe keep this place to themselves and, once one gets over that little trepidation, as you look you’re amazed at the trail system that exists – that I didn’t know was there – because I’d always assumed that this is a pristine area, which is what it was when I grew up, unexplored, and it’s natural beauty had been untouched by man.

So we come to a place where there are kids in a small pool that looks wonderful. I ask if it’s a hot spring. They say that the water is only about 50 degrees, in other words, just barely survivable in a situation in which outside it’s still snowy and could still be part of a melt going on. It could be very cold.

So I go and check it out. It is fine. They’re bullshitting. It’s comfortable, but not hot, but the pool is small and probably too small for you and I. So we keep exploring, and I seem to separate from you and come to a place where there is another hot springs that is much hotter, and that’s kind of even enclosed a little bit, and when I go inside young people again, not old people. We’re the geezers over in this area.

When I go inside, the kids that are here are kind of drunk in what they’re taking in. You find the place. You come looking for me. You find the place and, as you look in, you come across as like an official authority the kids have to follow. And you say that the cans, the beer cans, got to go. And, of course, I know that they think you’re an authority figure, but I know that it’s not quite what it appears. And so I just get off and we start walking away – so the old geezer amongst these youngsters is leaving.

Suddenly, off to one side, I see like a natural slide that goes from this hot springs and, in the far distance along this slide, it comes to another hot water pool that is connected to the river below, and that’s where the old geezers are at. And so I say, “Why isn’t anyone taking in this natural water slide?” And they tell me that it is too hot.

I joke with them that it is probably fine. I have no proof of that, I just suddenly seem to think that maybe they’re kind of misguided or something. So, I have to check it out. So I get into the slide at the top and find the water to be wonderful. It’s not too hot and, in the far distance at the other end, I see people – that’s where the grownups are at, and they’re swimming around.

So it appears to me that if it’s okay at the top, and the water flows down and goes into that, it should be fine all the way. It can’t be like they are imagining. Just as a last precaution I decide to go over, you and I we’re going to go over, just to make sure it is okay.

So when we get over to where the area is approximately at, to my surprise, as a last step, suddenly we have to take a man-made elevator up to the top of a tree and proceed across from there.

I took you into a past in which there is a lot of power, but when I grew up there the power was deprived. That’s Hungry Horse, horse is power. This power place had been like a hungry ghost unable to get out from its shadow. This time something is different. A roaring river that separated the area I grew up in from inaccessible pristineness on the other side is now accessible. So now that we’re able to cross over to an area no one when I was kid had ever gone, I find it has become discovered by kids and is a wonderful place to explore. In other words, what I’m seeing is not what I had expected to find on the other side.

So then as I explore further I find a hot springs, I realize that this hot springs is connected to a kind of a waterslide, and it is from there that I can see that this natural slide goes a long ways to where it reaches a river way below, and this waterslide connects, in other words, from a youthful innocence of an energetic to the adults in the pool of their own.

So to get there the last step is we need to take an elevator up a Tree of Life and, from there, cross into this zone.

So the meaning is the dream is portraying how much I have grown consciously, in that I have come to access a dormant inner power within that was limited in what it could do long ago, but is now able to cross, in other words, to take this growth and go over into a pristine realm, or the other side.

In this area things are wonderfully different, although at first glance that isn’t apparent to the feminine side of myself, because it’s new and so you have your preponderances. That part is naturally fearful because this is an area of unknown.

Not only do I find an abundance of inner into outer hot springs that no one in the past was aware existed here, I discover that the innocent young people who are the first to find this place are kind of keeping it to themselves, so it remains yet in a kind of unconsciousness. Adults are too prudish or fearful or quick to dismiss to be able to know that there is something more. The energy consciousness of an inner youthful innocence likes it that way, and is inclined to keep it hidden from old souls. But you and I have taken steps in which we are no longer deluded, or fooled. In the end I am able to close the gap between young and old, and am able to handle the waters between the two zones; in other words, to make the linkage.

The way this fits with the meditation dream is that a greater mergable consciousness is now possible in that the time has come for assumptions about this being a no-go zone to fall away. In falling away life in terms of access and appreciation of what had been inaccessible inner levels unfold. Wrongful, or false assumptions, when they fall away, reveal a powerful inner flow, and there’s power behind that that connects old with new, or maybe you’d say new with old, and unconscious with conscious, or conscious with unconscious, depending again how you want to flip that, upon the other side inner level of my beingness.

Until it became possible to access this inner pristine place I was not aware that, on this other side, so much there needed to be opened up there again in order to realize, recognize, and appreciate how connected, how new connected to old, how above touched below, how consciousness affected unconsciousness, and that in general that on this other side the means existed for a greater fullness of consciousness to rise up anew.

Wisdom of the Flow

eternal-h0Humans have a seemingly irresistible urge to control things – and we can see how out of control that can make everything. In spirituality we learn to trust in the wisdom of what created us, and trust in how it is unfolding. By doing so, we connect to its flow. Then we can express that flow into the world through the lens of our uniqueness, yet still giving it its natural outplay. To try to steer or control it implies that we know what’s for the best, which causes immediate disconnection from what is already in process. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I really struggled with dreaming last night. In the dream I did have, it felt like this man came into town who had about six women under his control. And sometimes the women were different colored, like I remember one was colored red. I don’t remember whether the other colors were as distinct as that one.

He would bring them into a room where I was, or I would go see where they were, and he had certain outfits picked out for them. And they were to come and get their clothing and their outfits. And it felt like I was trying to gather at least one or two of the women and take them with me, but there was another man that would come in, that was kind of controlling, that seemed to stop that.

But I was hoping I could do it in the future. It felt like I was just having trouble getting everything to come together so that I could, either because someone would come in and interfere, I had to get the outfits, or maybe the women weren’t there right then.

So it’s like the dream was kind of a struggle because I was trying to find a timing that was right when I could get the women to come with me, or have them have the right outfit so they could come, but the men still seemed to be in charge.

John: The theme of the dreaming is working with various levels, and what’s involved is that you’re recognizing that the seed thought, or an innerness, is coming in that is opening up possibilities in terms of consciousness, in other words, ways of perceiving the different aspects of light in which there’s imbedded knowledge.

And what you’re doing, that you’re having to contend with, is you’re attempting to take the various aspects of conscious light and try to control them. I would never guess that it could work that way, that the feminine in charge of this domain would find itself with this control problem, in that instead of just letting go, and letting something like this flow, because everything is meant to flow as an intertwined energetic connection, that the feminine would take these various levels of light, or levels of consciousness, or levels of insight, and would attempt to steer or guide them to serve her own capacity.

And so, we all know how as the seed thought of a consciousness from inner into outer comes down through the masculine and then is taken in by the feminine, and extended in an overallness, into the planes of manifestation – but what we didn’t realize, in terms of accessing the various levels and sorting these various levels into the overall of manifestation, what wasn’t recognized, or realized, or looked at before was the fact that the feminine has, once it is able to come into its role in manifestation, has to go through its own barriers and levels of control.

And so the dream is giving you information in terms of how it is that you are beating up on yourself, so to speak, by making things harder than they need to be, thinking that the various colors, or levels, are something that you need to somehow or another monitor, or direct, or guide, or free up as opposed to just let go and let them be – because they actually know what is best. They know their own way.

Because our idea of how to fix something is not a fix, it’s still a kind of control. And that, deep on an inner level of a world soul quality that we’re connected to, a deeper innerness of our own being, it is understood that what exists, exists in this wholeness of a letting go – and that the doingness gets in the way of that which is naturally there.

So your dream is pointing that out to you, that you don’t have to do all of that that you think you have to do. You just have to let go, trust, and realize that there is a wisdom behind the flow that will seek the course it needs to seek, and will wake up an unconsciousness that needs to be woken up – as opposed to you feeling the unconsciousness and trying to get there through some means of control.

In other words, just accept that which is coming in, as it is coming in, how it is coming in. Now you don’t accept it in the Haight-Ashbury thing where, you know, everything is a flow and whatever has happened is fine, but you accept it as a connectiveness that is able to be on the multiple levels, and not have to take a particular level which is one of manifestation, and take what is coming in from a higher self, or a quality of an innerness, you don’t have to take that and direct and steer that all anew in the outer simply because you think that this better facilitates the opening up of a consciousness effect upon an unconsciousness. It doesn’t. It is a doingness that just gets in the way.

So your dream is making an adjustment, in terms of your responsibility as a person who has to take into account the spatiality of manifestation, in terms of how it is able to be in relationship to the quality of an innerness opening up. And that the innerness does not have to be filtered, and monitored, and guided as if it can’t work unless one noodles with it. One just has to let go and let it be.

It’s not like you’re ever cut out of the loop on this. It naturally then flows through you as part of how the process works, in terms of the feminine’s overallness of the outer, but it doesn’t take on any stigma or something that limits the potentiality when a person thinks that they have a role, or responsibility, on a doingness level, to engage in as if they actually know, and that this other coming in doesn’t or something.
