In this image I see a sack of rubble. I’m trying to figure out what happened. As I pause, I realize that the rubble is the remains of a majestic sculpture of a horse, but now it’s all crumbled in a sack.
This horse, as a sculpture, projects its powerful characteristics. In a dream, a horse has a quality of causing something to unfold. A horse moves with power, and figures out what needs to be and helps to facilitate that.
Something has happened, though, because all the power and majesty has been turned to rubble – the power is gone. The horse has somehow transformed into something unintelligible.
When the mobility and power of the horse exist, there is a means to resolve conditions. With this gone, all is lost.
This dream is adding to the theme that for change to occur, the power and nobility must be present within us. When the outer factors dictate, our power gets drained and nothing is possible.
As we saw in the dream yesterday (see Presence of the Heart) where the conversation with the neighbor drained me, whenever we get drawn in to outer events in a personal way, we lose the inner linkage and connection. It’s actually a very subtle shift because, if we are open to it, everything in the outer. i.e., the wind, trees, plants, animals, etc, can communicate with us, telling us what they want or need in order to be further groomed, or allowed their outplay.
In the next dream I see myself entering into a scenario that started long ago. In fact, it started so long ago, I’m not sure how I’m meant to proceed. I’m wondering what’s going on and where everything is.
Suddenly, in a flash, I’m able to glance all the way back to the beginning and see that when this scenario started, there was a wonderful, fragrant scent associated with it.
In other words, it was like someone gave it a start with a quality of grace and love, or that something had touched it. It means that it had a greater life than its own propelled into it, to cause it to unfold.
All this information was lost to me when I began, but by seeing it, it’s all I need. I now know that there is more to this process than meets the eye, and I just need to pick up the thread where I find it and proceed.
The wonderful nature of this fragrance tells me that I’m on the right track. It tells me that I’m not just dealing with something unimportant or tangential. No, it’s all meant to be. This all has to do with something as it is intended.
The importance here is the idea of going along with the thread as I find it now. Wherever, and whenever, we discover the true meaning of life, we are meant to join the process where it is. It’s meant to happen, or there wouldn’t have been the grace of the special fragrance at the inception long, long ago. The heartfulness of what is designed to be is hidden and dormant, but I now know it’s not actually lost. It’s reawakening.
In the next dream I see an image in which something has been created and copies are being made, one at a time, by a very slow copier. The person involved with this doesn’t really seem to know what’s been done or they wouldn’t be acting like this: they’re not going to make any headway making one copy at a time on some slow motion machine.
In other words, something more has now quickened and is ready to unfold. I ask the person, “What are you trying to do? Why are you making the copies one page at a time?”
To get this out, so that something more can happen – which is something I suddenly know is wanted but hasn’t yet been admitted – I know the completed manuscript needs to be taken to a place that can copy, collate, and staple it together quickly. Then all that needs to be done is hand them out.
The faster this is done, the quicker something more can unfold, i.e., the next step can occur.
Here I’m being shown that the thing that needs to unfold is a done deal. I seem to be the last to get the memo, so this scenario has to do with completing various tasks that will allow the bigger picture to unfold.
These three images together give a nice summation of where we find ourselves as humans today. We need to connect to and keep the power within us, or we will find ourselves drained and everything will turn to rubble. When we understand the purposes of human life – to be a contributing part to something much greater – we can join any time because it’s already in progress. And, finally, something new is ready to unfold, i.e., things are changing, and the sooner everyone gets the memo on that, the better off we’ll all be.
Ultimately, the thing that stands most in our way, as individuals and as a species, is that we focus completely on the realms of our physical senses – the outer life – instead of the realms of energetic essences, or, our inner, higher connections.
