As-Above-So-Below-Sectio-AureaToday, 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.

As_Above_So_BelowA dream of moving vans and house-hunting, while Jeane and John are planning on moving in real life, seems straightforward enough. Yet these images also point to a much greater idea – that of remembering our in-built connections to God and creation. Being, as we are, in physical bodies, requires us to find our connection to what created us through a groundedness that comes from our inner life – our higher self. That is very different from being grounded in the material aspects of the world, which can often be what disconnects us from our higher purpose. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: The beginning of this dream, there’s something going on that I’m not remembering what it relates to, but it’s like I’ve gone somewhere and there’s a moving truck there, a big long one almost like a double long one, and I’m observing this moving truck and a second moving truck that comes.

It seems to be a place where the trucks pull in and stay, and I know that there’s something about the owner of the moving trucks that I have an uneasiness with, and it does have something to do with the fact that you and I are going to be moving, but I just don’t remember a lot of that part of the dream.

I just saw it as like I’ve gone to this place in the country where moving trucks stay, or where the owner of them is. There are at least two big trucks that pull in and leave, and I know I’m observing it. I know I have some uneasiness about whoever owns the moving trucks, but I just don’t remember enough about the context of that dream before it switches into the rest of the dream.

In the dream, you and I are going to be moving. I’m not even sure that we’re living together, but we will be. And there’s a woman. I don’t know if she’s your mother, or relative of yours, who seems to help us sometimes with looking for where we’re going to move.

Maybe she’s just a real estate agent, but at one point I’ve gone out and I’ve gone to look at this little house in the country and the real estate agent is showing it to me. And apparently it’s a house that you lived near when you were a kid, and what you really like about it is that it has all of these memories.

Now it’s small. It has a couple of levels to it, but it has one outdoor area that’s a covered outdoor area, but it’s almost like a huge room also, and so you’re kind of indoors and outdoors. And I look at this place, and then I leave, and then I come back on my own.

The owner isn’t there and the place isn’t locked, so I go in and I’m walking around. And then suddenly the owner comes and I startle her, but I just explain that we were thinking about buying it and she’s kind of delighted about that, or maybe even her husband comes.

I think there’s a man at some point. What they start showing me is they take me… it’s a small house in some ways, but they take me into this one room and they show me that in the kitchen, which he had actually designed it so you could put this, it almost looks like a long broom handle, through the refrigerator door into the wall and use it to slide the refrigerator over and then you had room to play a piano that was next to it.

And that seems to almost go right into the bedroom too, like all of these rooms kind of flow into each other, and then they took me upstairs and were showing me some neat things about the indoor/outdoor room about how what you can do there and how it’s laid out.

There were just a few unique things they have done so that even though it’s a very small space, there’s something about it that you can tell they’ve really loved it and they’ve done some unusual things to make it work for several different types of functions. And it has all of these kind of memories to it that you have from a childhood.

What I don’t want to tell them, in a way, is that you and I will probably only be there for about two years because we’re moving somewhere further north after that, but I realize at a place like this they even have kids that could rent it, or we have kids that could rent it by that time, some guys, you know, that live there.

I really think in some ways this would work because it would be easy to either rent out or resell, but I’m not saying anything about that to them.

John: What this dream is about, is it’s comparing and it’s looking at the two traits… the words existence and creation don’t actually work anymore, because existence and creation implies just one thing. It doesn’t imply the something that’s the universe, or the Wholeness, which is infinite.

You’re looking at a comparison of something that is rooted in creation, and yet has a sense of movement and flow that comes in some sort of infinite capacity. You have the moving trucks that represent the infinite capacity, and then you have the place in the country, or going into the country, which represents the rootedness and the groundedness in creation.

Then what you point out is that the groundedness as represented by the house, in other words something that’s formulated as an aspect that is in creation, is the means by which something is appreciated, because you can’t appreciate things if they are always in flux, as a moving truck.

You have to appreciate it through a groundedness, through something that’s rooted, and when you root something in creation you stir up the nostalgia of something deeper inside you. You stir up the memory of something more, in terms of who you are.

That’s the importance of being very rooted and very grounded in creation, the little house. However, the little house is quickened by the fact that it also has the macrocosm of what is defined specifically as a house in creation. It has the macrocosm effect.

Because it has this overdrive or this other quality of an effect, it becomes like a refrigerator, the broom represents the ability to traverse the two, to be able to link or connect as the thread between two zones, and the refrigerator is the catalytic, and the piano is the link to the inner harmonies, and you’re able to bring these kinds of traits and qualities into this house.

Now, the important part of the dream is that of the nostalgia, of the value, of the quality that the house resonates, the memories that this house carries, and that’s exactly how it is in terms of God. God cannot be appreciated, and whatever God is cannot be known.

To begin with you have to root and find the memories, the nostalgia, the sight of something in creation that touches, and that’s how you come to know. In the joy of that, in the appreciation of that, in the honoring of that, in the respect of that, in the trust of that, things unfold. And it doesn’t matter, it can be a real small house and they still unfold because you’ve created the link of above and below.

But it’s only in the below, in the microcosm of things, that you’re able to find the appreciation. You can’t aspire to that in a moving truck, or Tower of Babel, or any sort of thing that probes and reaches out, knowing that somehow out there is a greater ideal. Yes, in a roundabout way you can say that that’s your true home: that interval where the in-breath turns to the out-breath, that’s your true home.

But you do not catch up with that except in a very rooted and grounded nature that is in life, and yet allows itself to be touched and moved by a quality of something that is so much greater, but that so much greater has to be fully appreciated.

To fully touch and reach the heart, you have to have a quality of a rootedness in creation. The problem with the rootedness in creation is that it’s very, very hard to keep from being anal retentive and getting caught up in the mishmash of things that tear you up and throw you around and make you feel bad about this, or sorry about that, or however it makes you feel. It’s very, very hard to keep that from happening.

So hopefully, this quality that resonates out of the range of perceptions, something bleeds through that then can be recognized and seen and appreciated back again on the element of creation, in the most subtle heartfelt way, and that is as good as it gets.

And when you experience that, you have a trust in that, you have a faith in that, you have a sight in that, you have a respect of that, you honor that, thus the catalytic, the thread between the catalytic of the refrigerator leads to the harmony and the music of the spheres of the piano.

The theme of the dreaming last night was looking at a groundedness and a rootedness in creation, a groundedness and rootedness that leads to a recognition, and an appreciation, and a trust, and does not get thrown around or caught up or lost in the absurdities and complexities that undermine that distinction, or that way of being.

You undermine it when you aspire to be something other than something just in creation. There is a way of being just in creation so that the nostalgia, the memories, all of that, come through, and touch you, and in feeling that that is like a music inside you, like the piano, like a heartfulness that touches the spheres of all there is.

But that only happens through the catalytic refrigerator effect linked with the thread. The thread or the broom that moves things up and down and around, is the breath, and so in a realized soul, sure, the most important part of the breath is the interval where the in-breath turns to the out-breath.

But from the standpoint of a human being, unless they become something other than a human being, you only can catch up with the memories, the vibration, the feeling, the quality, that is carefully instilled into creation, that can have a compactness, and a denseness, but still resonates this other. And it is appreciating that, recognizing that, which enables something more to occur.

spfcc1In John’s dream, he finds himself observing a man and a woman, representing two aspects of the inner listening center through which we can connect to greater knowings – knowings which don’t come from us. As as neutral observer, he can see how both aspects have their validity and need to come together to create the full picture.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: My dream deals with it in a slightly different way, which is orienting the sight, which is objective, an objective kind of sight. But how that objective sight works in relationship to something that comes from another place, or another zone.

In your particular case (see Beyond the Hiddenness), it is something that’s in the overall, but housed within, in an unconsciousness. In my particular case, it is two different listening centers that need to be combined as one, in order to create the knowingness.

And so I describe the traits of these two listening centers by way of a combinational, or coming together, relationship that involves two people.

In the dream I am with two others, and it’s like these two are meeting, coming to know each other or something, and I seem to be like kind of a watcher, or a facilitator or something. And we’ve gathered at a little café, and we’re coming off of a food line or something in which he has gotten a hot drink, and I don’t know what she has gotten, and he’s walking over to select the table.

He kind of picks the first thing that’s available, because he’s very basic like that. And of course the woman is more speeded up than he is, and he’s more of this quiet steady type who listens for the body orientation, and she’s faster and comes to conclusions and insights quicker, but which can be too abrupt and its speeded up, and maybe not rooted enough, so that can affect her listening center. So if she would settle back more she could be more present.

So in the dream you get the first inflection that there’s a little bit of a gap there, because I can tell that she flinches a little bit by the table he sat at. She would have probably picked something more private and more oriented in a better spatial way, and he’s more grounded and has more of a sense of holding the energy.

So he has gotten a hot drink in which the container cup has finger places, where you can put your fingers to hold it so that you can handle the heat. In other words, this cup is designed to retain the heat in the best way and yet not burn you – and heat of course is energy – and yet still be something that a person can carry.

Of course he points this out to her as he is selecting the table to sit at, which would not have been her choice. She just kind of surrenders to that because even though she would have picked something with a different energetic and spatial acuity, she can feel his groundedness and rootedness.

And so she goes along with that because she somehow respects and honors the fact that he doesn’t dwell on this part of himself. In other words, it’s not an important sensation for him, but that doesn’t mean he’s slighting her in any regard.

She just kind of understands. She then proceeds to comment about the cup saying that the finger holdings that are designed in it still have to absorb some of the heat when you hold the cup, so even though this is a good design to try to retain the energy there still is going to be a loss of heat no matter what you do.

This is a guy who talks very slowly and his language is, because of his slow rootedness, sometimes a bit jumbled. That is because he speaks from the center within, more than from the synaptic of a speeded up mind. For example, he says the word cider and she says, “You meant Khidr, didn’t you?”

And I can follow the dialogue and say, “No, he meant Nimrod and is trying to project an image through the word nimrider, which isn’t a proper word.” I can tell because I can follow the projected imagery of the space he is in. That’s very interesting.

In this dream two different energy centers are coming into cohesion. The feminine has a better overall spatial orientation, and the feminine is an innerness. And my sensation is not an outwardness, it’s an innerness, and can tell when there is a better environmental sensation.

In other words, if you can bring the inner into the outer you could tell in that sense it gives you a better sense of environmental sensation. But the guy didn’t pay attention to this sort of mannerism, because he has placed his attention upon observing, within himself, a kind of more body-oriented, rooted inflection as being more meaningful.

It too is coming from the inner, but he’s listening to it in a different way. He seeks to hold a balance and groundedness as important. In this it makes him seem slower than her. She sees the energetic vibrancy and speed to be more important, knowing that however it is that you try to maintain, you can’t overcome certain barriers in the physical.

She points out this dynamic by saying that even when you have grounded something in a container to retain the energetic balance, you still lose it slowly in the outer no matter how sophisticated a means you have to try to hold it.

This guy’s approach to retain the energy that is held within, is meeting a woman who grasps the energy by her synaptic inflective speed. The two need to come together to be more whole. He tends to feel something, and in speaking knows what he is trying to project, but of course it needs a different speed in order to create the imagery.

And she tends in her speed and sight to gauge the energetic with a synaptic acuity that is instinctively energetically, and naturally energetically, more quickened. I’m able to follow both of them, so when he garbles a word I know the image behind it, and can correct it to help carry the inflection through.

She hears what he is saying as having a Khidr type of depth of mystery, because she knows that she can relate energetically through an acuity that is etheric. And I correct by saying it’s a Nimrod channel of being.

The distinction makes a lot of difference in terms of the listening, therefore a kind of hearing, and its meaning. Khidr is coming from a speeded up zone in which the depth of insight goes beyond the senses, and Nimrod is a listening center within, which is more rooted to the body being grounded. I just naturally knew that about Nimrod. I had to wait to get that to come through, and then I went to look it up to see if it was correct.

She is more expansive in her overall spatial acuity in the universe of life. He is more attentive to the inner sensation that stirs within. Nimrod, and this is what Nimrod is, is a mighty hunter and power in the earth. See, I had that right.

Jeane: I didn’t even know there was a Nimrod.

John: Oh, you didn’t? I looked it up.

Khidr is an energetic from the container expanse of the universe that relates more etherically. The earth energy depicts in a more grounded way. The synaptic energy relates to reflections as if they come from afar, as if etheric. The two combined create a knowing center in which the blackboard images that Nimrod catches up with, and the inner working inflective insights of Khidr reach a cadence.

The purpose of the dream is for me to look at both energetics as essential, needing to work together, to augment the “as above, so below” sight that my consciousness is awakening up to.

Each of these dreams, your dream had to do with you looking at a means of accessing a listening center, or communication connection, to a quality of something that you know is there. In other words, you’re zeroing in on it even though it has a sensation of being unconscious or lost.

You’re zooming and zeroing in on that, and as you take and as you hold the ripples of things in terms of that housed within, you’re slowly getting the bead so that it comes out into your knowingness – so you know whether something is right or not right, or balanced, or however it is, even though you don’t necessarily fully come to grips with it, because that’s a type of completeness that is more than what the mind and the senses can grasp.

But you can still catch up and know it. It’s said, being able to know something without actually seeing the light, so you’re working with that as a listening center.

And I’m working with the listening center that has to do with kind of a light and a sound. The sound is slower and more rooted in something that then is a type of manifestation and earthiness, and in its rootedness can be pretty mighty in terms of taking and making things happen.

But that doesn’t go anywhere, and goes in circles, and gets lost if it doesn’t have the inflective insight that comes on through, which is more etheric and more speeded up, which takes into account the bigger picture.

But you have to put the two together in order to have something that then is listening properly to the communication, and language, of what is meant to be, from both above and below, or in other words, having pulled the two together.
