Here John continues the discussion of Jeane’s dream (see A Greater Openness), wherein she is weighing her sense of wanting to hold onto the “treasures” she has found, while at the same time she is finding that she can let go in a way that offers these treasures to the Wholeness of life. It speaks of the natural role of the human as a processor of higher energies into manifestation, which is an higher octave of service to creation. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: If anything, this makes you so different that maybe they will have to try to affect it, or take it away, and so you come to the conclusion that you can’t go around carrying this attitude. You somehow or another realize that there’s an even greater openness that’s possible that integrates all of these parts of you – if you open up, and if you figure out how to share it.
You’re still going to hold onto certain things that you personalize, that you still feel that you have to go off to one side and be with because they’re necessary and essential to what you still feel is your well being, but there are other things that you can open the atmosphere with, there are things that you’ve developed through your aloneness with yourself, through your ability to hold a focus and attention, which in order to actually keep them from choking you, and to keep them from creating a problem for you, which you recognize would exist if you tried to just hunker down around those – all in terms of yourself.
Because you’re part of this greater Whole, maybe you don’t quite admit that, and recognize that, in this dream yet, but you do seem to recognize that there is something about a way of conducting, or carrying, or feeling a greater orientation towards everything, if you figure out how to communicate and share some of this with them.
So the dream is kind of saying that you can’t be adopting a black-and-white attitude about anything, as if this creates some sort of means-to-an-end aspect of your unfoldment and development. That when you come to know something, and when you come to understand something, and when you come to have something – that you have to be able to let it go.
You have to be able to share it. You have to be able to make it available to all parts of yourself. You don’t take and think that you have something that is somehow or another uniquely yours, or uniquely something that you protect, or maintain, and covet as a type of treasure, in relationship to the overall picture or the bigger equation of life.
You can’t do that. What you have, the traits and the mannerisms and the qualities that you have, you have to figure out how they exude out from you to others. The illusion that we have, or that lie that we tell ourselves, is that when something like this happens, then we lose it. And you still kind of believe that to some degree, because you’re hiding some treasures yet.
But you seem to be discovering the greater truth, that to actually have something, to actually own something, to actually truly have an overall relatability that penetrates through things, you have to share and be out in the open, in terms of how it is you are in the bigger equation of things.
So it’s a dream that has you yo-yoing, octaving, between the difference of holding on to a trait, or aspect, of yourself, which is segregated and, therefore, in its segregated nature is able to sustain or maintain something.
That is something that you tend to believe is important, and yes it may be important up to a particular point, but then at some point you have to let it go, and you have to let it effuse out into everything around you in the environment.
And so you’re playing with this. You’re catching up with this. To what degree do you still need to catch up with things, and then to what degree do the things that you have caught up with are you able to then just release it outwardly, effuse it out into things?
It’s kind of like a process of the breath. If you think about it, it’s like the out-breath brings stuff down that you catch up with. The in-breath brings it back into the Whole where it’s kind of released.
And initially the out-breath is a type of catching up with something, which causes the contraction, but also causes you to develop an understanding and relatability that just the sheer shrinking can be very defining and limiting. But then in terms of freeing yourself up, in terms of getting outside of the burden of that, you then have to release it, or let it go back into the Whole, into the atmosphere.
First you’re bringing down, and then you’re letting go, you’re bringing down, and then you’re letting go. And so what you’re doing is, you’re describing what this is in the greater octave of things, is describing this linkage, this connection to where something comes in and then something is disseminated.
And the degree to which you’re bound up in creation, is the degree to which you still have to maintain what you consider treasures, which you have to keep off to one side, and quiet, and hold onto outside of the Whole.
And, of course, in your dream you start off thinking that there is a lot of that, and that if they know about that you could be somehow or another in a deprivation, or danger. And then you realize how you’re able to release that, and that leaves you feeling good. That leaves you feeling wonderful. That leaves you feeling complete.
Otherwise, you would feel somewhat constipated. You came to realize how this choked feeling was something that you contended with when you tried to go meet this part of you that had gotten off on this tangent, and that all kinds of things related in this level of a tangent, and in order to meet this part of you, you had to drop that, or otherwise things would stay on that tangent.
You’re playing with this way of catching up with things, and in many cases doing it by way of a lesser aspect of the process, where you’re just hunkering down and holding on to things. And then you’re realizing how the release of that can open something up, and free something up, and you’re catching up with that release – and what it feels like.
The underlying principle behind it is a type of total vulnerability, because the concept that a human being seems to have is that if they’re too much of an open book they get taken advantage of, they’re in danger, that people can plot against them, they can use what they know about them, against them.
And that a person who’s already defined then, in their definition, holds a power over someone who is too open, and that tends to be a general concept that exists. And you’re challenging that concept, realizing that there’s a way of being open and out front that leaves things free, and enables a greater integration, and wholeness, and workability in the Wholeness of things to occur.
Complicated dreaming, huh? A very expansive way of dreaming. Interesting theme.
