Today’s dream continues a theme that was touched on in our prior posts, The Interval and Holding On to The Need. Here, the imagery triggers John to describe how the changes that need to occur in humans individually, and in the human race, can only come through those who are connected to it. There are no external fixes any longer, there are only internal fixes. We can only hold ourselves open and ready to the changes that arrive. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: My dream tends to show the struggle that the masculine tends to have because it can always rationalize why it needs to attempt to change something, or wake something, or touch something, in terms of coming out of, and down from, that space.
This is all set in terms of something that is going on in the outer, because in my dream what I do elicits the justice system to comply with a certain normal, expected, and consistent result. In other words, I’m starting off trying to ponder the idea of doing something to kind of cause it to wake up, and have thrown in its face the idea that this is how it should look and be.
I know that this result is consistent with how the court used to operate or function long ago, but it’s no longer functioning like that so I’m thinking that it can come back to that. I’m not willing to accept that it is so far out of it, in a collective motif, that it will only go around in some circle or another but it will not come out of it. In other words, it can’t and it won’t because the system has gotten defiled and, as a consequence, the court is no longer able to do what it is meant to do, or that is kind of its role or its job, which has to do with the connection that incorporates the morality into a justice expression.
In the dream I seek to point this out in a way that exposes a bigger problem. In other words, I recognize this in some little way, but I’m thinking that, again, by coming out of the space I’m acting as if I can come out of the space to actually point out a bigger problem through a smaller issue that looks more personal to me, and then show how this is affecting the Whole.
I’m challenging the court in doing this to take a step that is consistent with upholding the system that it is sworn to protect, because by doing this I’m showing that it is making a mockery of the system that it is in.
Now that’s pretty belligerent and is violating its freedom of choice to do something like that because if it chooses to go on some tangent and be like that, that seems to be what it’s allowed to do as a prerogative. We’re supposed to just watch that and be in that interval space because it’s not like we have been given the orders to bring down a certain justice that comes from the divine.
We are instead in the place hoping that some grace can flow through because that’s usually the way that it is meant to work. It’s not working now, so we stay in that empty space, because to do this other and try to bring it down is like trying to expose an inconsistency from the standpoint of the outer, to point to the inner workings from the top to bottom that are more important. And in doing so, point out that the system has established a built-in conflict of interest, when it started to do things in an outward capacity.
This conflict goes beyond the law which they are meant to uphold, but the law that they’re upholding also has a divine quality to it and that’s what keeps it in sync when you’re in touch with that.
If you’re able to be in touch with it then you’re able to reach to the workings of the body and the system that it is sworn to uphold, and the people it purportedly represents, but none of that exists now because that’s the collective dilemma. The result is a decision, as I know it should be. In other words, if I take this approach I can get the decision, I can compel the decision to come around through all of this extra effort that can somehow point out a way for it to try to be consistent, and one can get the decision that is as I know it should be.
But it can’t go any farther than that to what is important, so who cares? In the consequence it doesn’t shift anything, and that is seen because then there is a gap, which is followed by a further response that is meant to address what has been challenged in terms of its functionality.
And what I remember from the dream about this additional response is it gaps. There’s just this huge space in between that it jumps over the top of like a dot, dot, dot gap and then you will get subsequent additional findings, which shock me because they defy the expectation I may have had. In other words, they elude. They don’t address it. They can’t really hear it. They aren’t able to be there and I do not yet get a chance to sort this out before I wake up.
A type of meaning is, I seek to checkmate the system. That’s what you do when you try to take and bring something down and through and get it to untangle something in the outer, as if it can work that way. But the collective won’t allow it to work that way, and the response you get is a dot, dot, dot gap from the expected function of the court as a review body.
In other words, it’s not designed to take on any depth. It’s just a review body. It can’t take any steps. It can’t shift. It can’t really address the issue. The issue’s been avoided in every step of the process, and then you go to the Supreme Court and it can’t really shift to the true underlying problem.
The sense I end up with is what I have done has sidestepped the justice system, instead of just staying and keeping with how it can only see tiny, tiny things and not very well, what I end up doing is going beyond its usual design and way that it has to uphold itself as a viable body.
It’s like the inner has this quality to it, so you have to stay with that essence, that emptiness, that interval that is so potent. And I wouldn’t have been puzzled in the dot, dot, dot response as I felt it in the dream if the result had hit the value that was behind what could touch the overall if that had occurred, which it didn’t. It’s like prophetic even here.
Another meaning of this is, play with the outer at a level where it is no longer functioning and you will get a result that diffuses, rather than infuses, the result.
This is a dream that reflects the state of being within me as well. I tend to diffuse things by not sitting on the need. I tend to press that need into the outer to cause the outer to correspond reflectively with the greater picture of the Whole. Unfortunately, it doesn’t do that.
Just like I am diffusing myself when I do this, this likewise causes a similar confusion in the system that is opposite to what I feel needs to be in the fabric of its design. This diffusing of the issue further obliterates the desired result from being able to occur because now it takes and has to be accountable for something like that, which is the wrong kind of responsibility or accountability.
And an even deeper meaning is, the esoteric question is, and the question being one which I already know the answer is, is it better to hold the need quietly within as an observer, or is it of a greater value to unwind or try to untangle the reflections that are external in the hope of reaching a higher truth?
The answer is it is better to hold the need. The truth flows from inner into outer. In a dire time when the truth is compromised to such a degree that no collective shift is possible, that is when living in the interval that lies between the in-breath and the out-breath is the answer to the question.
To do so is to hold the need in an emptiness that exists prior to a seed thought from the crown into creation, a motion that affects and shapes manifestation – when it’s permitted to do that. The reason this is the answer is to do something other than this is to take away the one thing God lacks, and that is man’s need. And God answers the need of the heart. He answers it, but in his timing.
At present nothing can shift because it doesn’t connect with any collective heart, nor is there any advancement that is possible in terms of the light of the individual. However, at this time, this has to do with coming closer to God through how it tends to work something out in creation.
And at this particular point in time, it’s like the caravan stops in this interval and watches and holds and it feels the need. It doesn’t do anything. It just feels the need. It pents up, so to speak, just like you can have a quality in your nature that builds and builds and builds and pents up. Maybe you don’t act on it, and maybe you don’t act on it, and then suddenly when you do you have a lot of clarity and power behind it because it has built up to a crescendo.
The simpler understanding is that this approach is a quality that has this essence in prayer. What I said earlier is the legal system is purposely ignoring an issue because it is compromised. This causes a deviation if what is meant to be serves only the best interest, which are personal. You deviate then from something that you hear in a deeper level, which is your light, or the light of the Whole. So the need lies beyond the system, in that we’re talking about a system in the collective, which has put itself into a trick box.
In other words, the world is trapped. It’s trapped itself. It has no way out. In order for something to change that place where something is able to change sits at the point where the inner turns into the outer, that in-breath space. You sit there and it’s actually a space that you can only know when you’re in a nothingness state, or when you’re maybe deep in meditation or something, and you’re totally at peace there.
It has a bliss sensation to it, is the way the Yogis tend to describe it. And in that state you’re most watchful, and in that state you’re most able to recognize the need of the Whole. When you’re not in that state is when you have a tendency to think that there is something that you can do in an outer way that can make a difference, as if you can steal a little bit of that from the inner, but you’re not to take and subrogate that.
You’re meant to just hold the need, and hold the need, because you don’t have the right at this point in time to act because there’s no recognition. There is no counter feedback. We see that even in terms of the dream groups. Everything has to have an invitation and conceivably, inside of us, all of that is the same. And unless it is really clearly understood and recognized, we can work out the nuances in the dream group, and hopefully help speed things up a bit that way – as opposed to going out and getting slapped around thinking that we’re able to say something in the outer, or collective, that kind of turns the ear a little this way, or turns the ear a little that way, but not really.
It’s like everything is now taken and turned, any little inflection of light, because there isn’t the light in the outer – it gets absorbed and twisted and turned in some sort of deviant way. So the key is to hold the recognition and develop the need, or hold the need and from the need something can emerge, either in a grace way, a greater grace way, or in the bringing of something down in a mannerism that is consistent with the way the new light is able to somehow start to awaken.
And the teacher has indicated, there has got to be something coming, and it has a different quality inside of it that is designed for something quite different in life. What that will mean will be interesting to see, but right now it’s like everything has gotten itself under a state of – it tortures everything in life. You still have to know how to find that and hold that need, and then it comes through. And we’re all one organism, so we see how that comes through then.
