John: This dream (Direct Route) has a way of opening things up that is similar to your dream (Self Healing). This dream is showing that a greater clarity is opening up. I am going from a general sense that has a kind of “blind” magnetic pull to it, to a deeper inflection that has kind of “sight” associated with it.
In doing so, I am able to take that which is okay generally, and bring it into a more precise and straightforward recognition. That sounds like a lot of words, so let me give an example. For instance, it’s easy for everyone to feel that things are a mess in the world today. There are wars ongoing, oil spills, the economy, earthquakes, volcanoes, all kinds of strange weather, etc. That is an overall sense people have of chaos happening around them. Yet they are still focused on what is happening in their immediate world – bills to pay, work, family issues and the rest. So they have a sense of the overall and are remotely affected by it, but because of all their other distractions it is background noise as part of the general disarray. There is no specific clarity; everyone may venture an opinion, but they know that they are just bellyaching a bit.
That sense is important, however, because ultimately it does lead to what needs to be realized. To begin with, it is like I say, just acting up. Then when you are able to see the issue inflectively, in other words, you are able to truly relate to it instead of seeing it as something that may or may not affect your personal affairs, then the delirium and bewilderment that has existed in life can fall away. It is then and only then that the person is able to responsibly take into account that which was heretofore unseeable (because of the focus on the personal) and is able to start now to note the more subtle distinctions.
When you are able to note the distinctions, this leads to a knowingness that is more than just a sense of it, and it is more than just a magnetic pull. You are now able to start catching up with the specificity of things. That is where you get into the statement “All is known and nothing is for sure.” On a general level and on a sense level, it is all known, but then on a level of specificity, as you pull something more, you actually are able to change the imagery. You are able to move about a little bit. You have a little more freedom. And you are able to help in some capacity.
To the degree to which you do help others is the degree to which you can cause light bulb moments or reflections to come through and something to be released. The releasing, of course, you perceive as something that helps others, but it is a releasing that actually is inside of you, because there is really only you going on in a dream, and that releasing then is something that goes back to a home inside. To begin with it is just light touching light. It is just the $5 (from Jeane’s dream).
The mistake that can be made is to think you actually understand something. What you should understand is that because this is an aspect of clarity that has opened up, and it is an aspect of the masculine properly aligned with the enormous, all-encompassing feminine nature that has the spirit energy more or less kept under wraps, what you come to realize is how little you really know.
You don’t just take the $5 and sweep it in (this is a tendency of the feminine to then preen over what it is that it thinks it has captured or caught up with). Instead you should sit in a state of awe with a sense of tremendous wonder, and realize how very little we really know after having caught up with this tiniest inkling – that we had no idea existed, that was just kind of the tip of the iceberg in the whole process. That is how the two dreams kind of integrate.
