Relating to the Space

Jeane: When I woke up at about 3:30 in the morning, I had been dreaming some version of the dream I tried to pull out yesterday. The best way to describe it is it felt like I was in a round shopping mall. Basically I’m contemplating a large circular space that to me represents some room or place.

Except it’s not just one circular space – now I have two of them side by side. I’m going around one of them in a clockwise way, and then sometimes I go around counterclockwise. Then maybe I circle around in the second space.  

I’m contemplating something about these spaces, or trying to figure something out. One time, as I go around, I suddenly notice that one of the spaces has this little plastic holder. It’s like one you’d see at Best Buy when you’re looking at merchandise – it’s clear and holds a sheet of information about the product and the price. 

They have one of these holders in the space, so I reach in and pull out a piece of paper. I don’t know, but perhaps it has something to do with the furniture I can put there. I don’t know. 

I’m still not fully going into the space because I haven’t decided whether I’m supposed to go clockwise or counterclockwise. Because I’m uncertain, I keep trying to figure things out.

It feels like I was doing the same in a dream yesterday, but I’m not sure.

John: The interesting aspect to this imagery is that you’re not concerned about any specific detail. You’re much more focused on trying to find a type of balance within the space. You’re trying to find a way to be in the space.

So we see you trying to determine how to flow in this space – whether to go clockwise or counterclockwise. In other words, there might be an activity associated with these spaces, but that’s not what concerns you. Your attention is on a particular sensation in relation to the space you’re occupying.

You’re interested in how it feels to you; you just want it to feel right. You instinctively know that your relation to the space you are in is the most important factor. Next to that, the details and particulars are irrelevant.

That’s because the details and particulars are just the outer consequence of being there. If the inner is aligned with the space you’re in, then the outer consequences aren’t important. That’s being in the flow. That’s being connected to Creation.

Interesting dream!
