A Small Town Perspective

OZ_-_Z_Diorama_001John dreams of going for a walk with a woman from an isolated, conservative town, only to find her father and other authority figures awaiting their return. Through this imagery, we can extrapolate the current human condition, which imagines that it knows what is going on and has some control over the outcome.

From a higher perspective, we don’t really know, but we can understand that it’s unfolding according a greater plan that we don’t easily see. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: My dream is pretty fast. It’s an odd little story. Odd little stories are pretty loud actually, and actually easier to remember. That’s probably why they’re odd little stories. They’re the kind of stories that you tend to want to even forget as if you think something is haywire.

So, I have traveled into the eastern part of Montana, and arrived at a remote area where there is not much contact with civilization. People who live out here are very conservative. They are far away from normal life, in other words the life of the city and usual environment.

In other words, it’s not a great mixing pot. People are too isolated. Such isolation can lead to a lot of false impressions about how things are because there is not the opportunity to sort things out and grow, like there is in a mix of a lot of people. And that, as a consequence, such isolation leads to an imbalance because the consciousness is not provided the opportunity to develop.

So I’ve traveled out here, and I meet a woman and we go off in the distance together. We’re taking a walk out into the field away from the normal, small, isolated farm environment, or whatever it is. In such an isolated area nothing happens without everyone aware, which is both a protection and a problem.

I go off on an excursion with the woman. I’m able to tell that the father has imagined the worst: he has called the authorities. When we return, the ranch hands and her father, plus another person who has a certain authority about him, is there. Before we have gotten back to where they are, in other words we can see all of this in the distance as we’re returning, the authority figure says to the father to let him handle this because, he’s saying, “They look too casual and easygoing for one to just straightaway jump into some sort of foregone conclusion.”

As we arrive the daughter, of course, is aware of the mentality that has gone rampant, and says to her father, “At least you waited and didn’t go off completely on a tangent without obtaining my side of the story. Nothing could have happened without my permission. To that you can rest assured.”

The meaning is everyone thinks that creation is being raped and plundered at will. That is because there has been a jumping-to-conclusions based upon appearances and imagination. Such an attitude has magnified that which appears to be a problem, into a foregone conclusion.

That is a perspective that is closed off from the whole. The concept of self discipline has gotten lost. People imagine what they think they see, and in their imagination arrive at conclusions based upon appearances without fact.

Rarely does anyone take the time to realize that everything that happens in creation is by design. It’s easier to place blame. And that is why there is such a problem in creation. No one has any faith and trust anymore. This leads to a world of false accusation, fear, distrust, and isolationism. Creation is excluded from the big picture.

No one knows the real story. Nothing in creation can happen without the feminine being included and the unfoldment being part of a divine plan. God is everywhere, yet people seem to have forgotten this truth and gone off on personal tangents. The point is, nothing is as it appears.

Because of a lack of sight, the imagination is lost in the ideas of power and control. The conclusions reached from this perspective aren’t capable of embracing the big picture. As a result the world is deemed to be in dire straights, as if it is actually possible to destroy that which is real. In other words, that the world has something in it that is real.

Maybe we don’t know what that is, and that it could get destroyed. It is as if no one is able to look into the depths of the human heart to see that everything that is unfolding, as dire as it looks outwardly, is not what it seems. Just like energy is not created or destroyed, it simply changes form, that is what is taking place in creation.

And deep down, in the heart-of-hearts, what is unfolding is preordained. The problem is that no man can see or appreciate that because he has gotten lost in the appearances, and in his limited perception faculties. Creation knows better. She isn’t as helpless as she appears.

Permission for a change to occur has been given. There can be no other way. Everything is interconnected. A human being who identifies with the outer appearances has thrown away this memo.
