Today, John continues his analysis of Jeane’s dream from yesterday (see As Good As It Gets). To a great extent, the human race has become disconnected from its natural relationship with the purposes of creation, mostly because we are to caught up in the day-to-day business of life. We need to reconnect to what is natural in us, rooting into physical life the energetic principles of creation. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: In my dream I go through the specifics of just looking at a way of being grounded and rooted, and I use a couple of different scenarios in life, in my images, in which I see something rooted and grounded. I do not sing the praises, or the qualities, of a speeded up expansive state, other than the fact that it is there, too. It has to be rooted. In other words, it’s like taking the different flow or direction.
The average person tries to go from their basic human nature, to more of a divine recognition and realization of things. My dream does something like what yours does. Your dream does it from the standpoint that it recognizes something more than the moving trucks, but your dream also has an overdrive to it that from being able to appreciate the house that is small, but has the quality in it, the nostalgia, the memories, you know that at some particular point that gets honed as a connection that you have that is solid, that is heartfully established, and then you can move again.
You could take another step forward, and you could move more to the north, and the north is the direction of going deeper and deeper into a spiritual developed side of yourself. All of it, of course, is developed, is acknowledged, is recognized, as a memory and a quality in creation.
At no point in time do you abandon creation. You abandon creation and try to take and go into just this other space then… well, you can’t do that unless you take into account all of creation. You have to take into account all of creation. You may have to start with just something in a compact, nurtured, creative way and then you expand to something more, but you’re always taking into account all of creation.
Creation is going through its transitions, and one of the transitions that it’s going through now, is that the spiritual quality of an ascendency ,or something more than what exists in life per se, in creation per se, is exemplified by the disrespect and repudiation qualities that we have in life.
The tendency to try to make something out of nothing, to aspire to something beyond just the practical and the basic, and in doing so, that’s a betrayal, and that leads to a hurt heart, and that leads to friction, sadness, anger, and all kinds of qualities – because one is not staying rooted to creation, not staying rooted to life itself.
The most important thing is to stay rooted to life itself, not to spiral out of control. So, what is the most rooted thing in life? That is the thing that a person has to always nurture, and hold true to, and not betray, and not over aspire and reach beyond, simply because that is the characteristic and the tendency that you see around you.
Nobody likes to just sit and be basic and to be accepting; everyone is aspiring to this other technology that has to do with traveling, and speed, and probing out, and that exists right now in the outer, and it has, in its own way, led to something that is very similar to the Tower of Babel, where everything got busted, and everything got scattered again.
And it’s as if we are approaching a moment in time that is like that again, because everything is trying to reach outside of its norm – as if it has a right to do so – and it doesn’t work that way, it only woks through something that is basic and grounded.
The problem with trying to establish something that’s rooted in a basic, solid, grounded energetic, is that it doesn’t feel good initially. It’s kind of dense, it’s kind of stodgy. But the beauty of something like that is there’s a camaraderie of a connection that can develop, which can touch, like you have in your dream with the house and the memories that makes no sense in the stodginess of the scenario.
It’s easy to repudiate this as being a small house in the country, away from things, as being stifling, and yet in that is something that touches, and memories, and you start there and then you expand more and more all the time, holding on to creation and the qualities of creation. You have to always be touched by something that can be perceivable as a memory, as a heartfulness from the standpoint of creation.
Every step you take in creation has to carry that touch. You don’t race out. You don’t find yourself suddenly in a glorified position in some fashion or another, because whatever that might be automatically then moves away from this importance that you hold in creation. You never lose that.
It is that, on a “below” level, that actually makes for the home within, on the innermost level, but you cannot reverse the flow. You cannot go to the home within first and abandon creation. It will not open up that way, and never has opened up that way.
You have to come down, and you have to use the faculties that are given to you, to touch the heart in creation, as creation was manifested with all of the traits and attributes that are beyond your ability to grasp in the expanse, but that you can appreciate in the quality of being very basic and set in creation.
Now, our dreams are singing the attributes of this. We’re not talking about the other side of the energy. It’s important, too. You have to have both, because if you’re too anal retentive, then you miss every cue. So you have to have a little of both, you have to have both, but you can’t catch any of the cues if you don’t have a viable heart, and a heart that then touches, and relates, and rejoices, in the qualities of something about creation itself.
If you don’t have a heart that’s doing that, then you can’t appreciate, and link up with, something beyond, which comes from somewhere else. That somewhere else, as above, so below, the below quality of that, is that nostalgia, is that memory, is that closeness that touches, that makes somehow an aliveness. It makes something as a basicness, as a microcosm, that gives it an aliveness that is so much more.
