Here, John breaks the dream image into its component parts to give a greater clarity to the message that is trying to come through. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: Even though I dreamed last night, I just remember an impression and then the punch line, so to speak.
The impression is I’m in a town that’s a little bit like hillbilly country, where everybody doesn’t have much money and they live up on the hillside a bit. I seem like high school age or so, and I know that in the dream it feels like there’s a party that happens at the end of the dream, but the party is not really getting going and it’s being rather dull.
I go over to the two men that seem to be in charge of the music, like DJs, and the problem is that the way they play the music now isn’t like the old days where you could just pick up the record you wanted and put it on. It comes in a sense preprogrammed; there’s only certain music available and I feel like the thing that’s needed…
John: In the first part of the dream, the hillbilly town and where nobody has much money is a reflection of the fact that you’re not identifying with how things are energetically. In other words, the outer circumstances of things have weighed down upon your perceptions so that you’re going at a very slow, awkward, out-of-joint pace that is more or less in keeping with the environment that you find yourself in. That’s the first scenario.
The second scenario that you’re describing is that now you have somehow jump started this by having connected more to the recognition of an energetic flow. You’re not yet describing this as an inner to outer flow, other than the fact that you’re recognizing that you can have a music involved there in which two guys can be in charge of the music to try to keep the beat of something or the pace of something more enlivened.
The two guys that are in charge however is like the inner echo inside of yourself that is coming through that takes you out of this state of the initial part of the dreaming in which you are functioning kind of in a stupor because you are going in kind of a collective, dumbed-down, dense way of just responding to how things are.
In other words, you’re just in a hillbilly scenario and just getting by based upon the circumstances that are in the outer and you don’t yet in that first part have a recognition that you need to be adhering to something that has a different beat or a flow to it, and you’re catching up with that. You’re getting that in the second, almost amnesically however, because it’s not like you’re screaming that you now know that you need to be looking at the inner flow.
Instead you’re just kind of like, plop, in the scenario of things, and seeing that what makes this party of activity different is that there are a couple of guys in charge of the music or in other words keeping the beat up. But this could easily be something done in an outer context just as much as it could be done from an inner context. That’s why it isn’t yet certain as to whether or not you have gotten it in terms of where to place your attention, in terms of what is really real as opposed to what only appears to be real.
Jeane: I realize that the party really isn’t moving, so to speak, not mixing, so I go over and I tell them that we need some music by Led Zeppelin and that’s what would make the difference.They look at me and they are stymied because the way the music is set up it’s all electronic. They don’t have like records where you can just go pick up a Led Zeppelin record and put it on. You have to deal with the music that’s already programmed in or available electronically and they don’t have any Led Zeppelin, so that’s kind of where the dream ends.
John: Yes, from that you’re supposed to get the hint that the idea of changing the vibration of the scenario from conforming, to what is a more picked-up pace than the first dream, which is in an awkward backwardness in which everything seems dull around that aspect of the dream.
At least in this aspect of the dream you have the energetic, you have something picked up, but even though the energy can be picked up it too can be boring. It too can be trite.
This is a dilemma I’m always dealing with in that everything can seem kind of animated, the discussion can even seem somewhat interesting in a certain way of looking at it, but it bores me and I find myself trying to change subjects in order to increase the tempo, or to enliven it, or to cause it to be more comprehensive or expansive or something.
That part of me that is veering out to do that, is very characteristic of some inner quality flow or energetic that wants to get itself into the equation, and when I’m like that I may not know or may not be distinguishing to the fact that I am trying to get things back on an inner into outer.
I may just be looking at the blend of the flow that is happening, which has certain upbeats to it as well as a density or a neurosis or something that is boring to me, nauseating to me, even though others may like it or appreciate it as better anyway than your first image in which it’s just all hillbilly.
When I take and try to change the vibe of things, which is what you’re trying to do by realizing you want the Led Zeppelin record to play instead because it has a faster, quicker pace and it’s not as mundane or as ordinary as the current music is that needs a little spicing up or something.
The hint within your dream is, do you really get it that what you’re doing is your attention is more shifted, in the end, to a hearing of a flow that is of a kind of sight way, or as a type of light, that has information that needs to come into the outer scenario from another place, or from an innerness? And that this introducing Led Zeppelin, even though this disturbs the status quo, is what gets the job done.
See how that worked?
