At Home With It All

light-99Life is full of distractions and indulgences. And mostly we just see this as part of the process. But if we are talking about a spiritual process, then resistance to those distractions is what keeps us developing. Why would that be so? Because when we drift, we tend to be more unconscious in our actions which causes us to lose the deeper, or higher, connections. In the end, consciousness matters, and we need to stay conscious of that. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So in my dream, I go through the mannerisms and aspects of life that normally distract people into losing a focus and attention, but somehow or another, rather than getting distracted I’m lucky enough to be able to do that and uphold the process, as if I have a sense that goes beyond the fabrication or delusion that is in my surroundings.

That’s very much like your dream where it’s an absorptive quality, but it’s doing with a masculine way.

And I describe exactly how that is: I am a hunter. At first I just take on what lies before me, but eventually I develop a system to the hunting.

I also get to a point where my hunting is also influenced and affected by other like-minded comrades. I notice that it is almost impossible to not indulge in the game. And I could see where I could have a tendency to do that but basically deep down I don’t, I just stay a hunter.

Or, I suppose, to use another kind of term, following the thread wherever it might lead, going to the various levels that being a hunter is like.

So in the dream, because I’m going through the different levels of what it’s like to be a hunter, as if there’s a sophistication that is heating up. I know what it feels like to have the experience, but I’m still holding out for two other challenges in the hunting to manifest.

In other words, the way I see this is it’s like five to seven different stages in the hunting. In other words you can go out and, to begin with, it’s fairly easy to get your game. But then it becomes more sophisticated as you approach a little different this way, and a little different that way, and it’s more subtle or whatever.

And you have to just do this, you can’t take and dwell on what you’re doing, you just have to do it. It’s not a big deal, it’s no different in its way than the hunting that is done when it’s very basic and you just go out and it’s all Simple Simon.

You don’t distinguish one as higher or superior, or there’s no hierarchy or anything like that. It’s all part of an overall process of hunting. And if you get off on a tangent in any aspect of that whole process of hunting, then you don’t get to the overall.

And so most people are consumed by the forces of the outer nature, like for example you get caught up in the way that you hunt, which is distinct from others, and you see yourself as distinct from that, and so then you get lost in the idea of hunting and forget the inner prime directive which is intertwined with why you’re hunting.

Again, I’m describing this as a masculine process that works with trying to bring something down and through as light. In your particular case you’re just holding the virtues and values of creation and causing everything to see itself that way.

The process, in other words, the five, six, seven steps, comes to an end. And when it comes to an end I find myself surprised that I haven’t gotten lost, or indulged, overly indulged in some part  or another that I took a predilection to more than another part.

Which basically means that I’ve made the sojourn, and in the end come to know that everything is elationally energetic. It’s an elation that is energetic as an intertwined existence, which then, when it’s like that, is a freedom that one cherishes. In other words you feel that in your bones.

It’s getting through it all. For the masculine, the masculine gets lost when it gets tied in or caught up in a type of kundalini energy that just gets in the bones and you don’t know what to do with it.

The feminine knows how to absorb that – that’s what your dream was showing. It takes the disconsolate vibrations of flicker light and brings it through into a wholeness.

It’s interesting. It causes me to think about of something said where the masculine energy comes down and it hits the planes of manifestation and sets off a spark. And manifestation can either see that spark, or actually even function as a type of black hole and absorb it. But it’s more than just a black hole, it’s true energy. It’s the dark light, or something, because, in doing that, it enables that to become whole.

It just isn’t some sort of disconsolate energy. In other words, the disconsolate condition that I carry inside, your dream is saying that you can absorb that to something that makes that make sense. Wow!

So the meaning of my dream is that awakening to ourself is filled with innumerable images in which we self-design our reality. And I come to learn what it is like to reach out there with my ill-founded dreams and aspirations.

In the dream, however, it works out so that I seem to be lucky. There were numerous occasions when I could have settled for that which appealed to me in some fashion, but I didn’t, and went through all of that. And, therefore, was able to find life meaningful.

Had I settled with any identifications, I would have veiled myself from that breakthrough. All outer images that one takes and goes through and plays with, and looks at in a masculine way, are just delusional.

The only thing that makes sense is to be able to be a person who is able to be at home with all that there is. I mean that’s what your trying to dream that you can do. And such a person does not get indulgently caught up in the nuances of the outer.

That’s the meditation dream. That was pretty deep, wasn’t it? And I didn’t think that I had it down very well other than the fact of how wonderful it felt to be able to be a hunter that wasn’t struggling in the hunting. I just seemed to be able to go from one phase of the hunting, to the next phase, to the next phase and it all came together and made sense without the indulgence.

And in the end when I was able to do that, without getting tied or caught up in some point of it all, it left me with this huge elation. I mean, I got it. It all was elational as opposed to some aspect that’s a little bit of a nuance deviation.

Something Real

Hilma_af_Klint_SvanenBeing in service to the whole is an often misunderstood idea. It can encompass the selfless acts of good samaritans, yet at a higher level it is the conscious shifting of energy, from out of balance into balance, or even cleaning up coarse energies and elevating them to a higher vibration. We do this by the aggregation of our energetic life: whatever level of vibration we hold radiates and affects the environment around us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: It felt like my dreams were way too wispy to pull out. I know the last one I was having, it felt like I was a woman and it’s almost like I would like I would go into a building, it felt like a bank building or some kind of commercial building, and whatever was going on there it was almost like I tried to draw fire, like maybe there was gunfire going on, or something that kind of diffused the situation inside, that if I could pull the attention, or I could be there, maybe I could shift what was happening.

And it might just be something that was being caused by some little boys playing there, but if I could deflect their attention it might make a difference. And I would leave and then maybe I would come back and try to deflect the situation in another setting. And then go back to someplace like a railroad station. It’s just all really vague, I couldn’t pull it out.

John: So what you were doing was, you were sacrificing yourself, so to speak, to draw the attention of an energetic?

Jeane: it didn’t feel like a sacrifice, it felt more like if I were there I could do something to draw the attention of the situation and help shift it.

John: I think it’s talking about this quality that is natural to the feminine nature that is able to take a situation in which you can hear various energetics that are in the environment, and it can help those energetics see themselves, because it is able to work from a place of, well it doesn’t hold a judgment, it holds an energetic space, so that those energetics get grounded.

In other words, I think it’s saying that you have the ability to take, no matter how disoriented something may be, or disconnected, or unbalanced something may be, that you can go and, in a non-judgment state, because you can see that behind that is something that is valid, that is real, that just can’t catch up with itself. And you can take and absorb the energy of those ideas and awaken or quicken, with your focus or attention, that which lies within.

That then takes what exists in the outer and enables it to see itself as being unbalanced or misaligned. And it actually does more than just see itself as misaligned, I mean that kind of goes away, too, it tends to see how it is that it is meant to be in terms of a wholeness. 

In other words, the parts that are considered askew and astray suddenly make sense, in terms of the equation or picture of things.

It reminds me of this example. It’s a story in which, I believe it involved the Dalai Lama who came to visit this person, who took the Dalai Lama, as if he didn’t know any better, into a bar scene where you had every imbalance or peculiarity going on that you could possibly imagine.

And the Dalai Lama laughed and carried on and acted as if this was of no consequence whatsoever, essentially taking the energetic of that space into himself, but seeing it for how it was on a whole other level.

And so, as a consequence, the Dalai Lama was emanating a quality that wasn’t out of balance with the place that the Dalai Lama was in. Instead was in balance, and therefore balanced out that environment for those who had the ability to inflect inside themselves and catch the reflection of how it really is, vibrationally, to the eyes of the Dalai Lama in a state where it all makes sense.

So, the point being is that, in life, the vagaries and mannerisms and attitudes that you generally see are imbalances that exist that, technically behind that, those imbalances, is something that is real. And that if a person is grounded enough, whole enough, complete enough, accepting enough of their own energetic being, it can take that and see that for what it is – and not get all twisted and reactive and rejective of those conditions.

To be able to absorb like that is what it takes to take something that’s in disarray and bring it back to where that disarray catches up with its own wholeness – or has that capability.

So I think you’re dreaming that and you’re realizing that you can do that to a greater capacity.

Just a Suggestion

iryw_excalibursoulsSo much of what we do in life, in the outer, can be seen as an indulgence. Why? Because everything we do falls into two categories – it’s either toward the whole, or toward separation. We are meant to live our lives always moving toward greater connection – that’s where our freedom of choice comes in. Still, what’s most important is why we do what we do – we are powered by our conscious intention. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So in the next dream, I see myself getting into a car and there are two guys that I am with, who ask me if I want to go running with them. I’m about to say no, and one of them says, okay grandpa, or starts to say that, but before he can actually do that kind of dismissing, I suddenly change my mind and say, okay.

But I will need to go home and basically change and be ready to go out with them running. And apparently they’re going to run up some trail slope or something. And where I need to go is somewhere downhill.

So one of them decides, because I’ve gotten into the passenger side, and initially it was like they were both going to get into the car, but then they were going to go running, and so then one of them is going to go over and stay by the trailhead or something, and the other one is to get into the driver’s seat and take me back to where I can get what I need to get so that I can then proceed to go running with them.

The guy who stays behind, it’s as is he shifts the car to back out or to back up or to try to start this process of getting me situated with whatever I need so that I can go running with them. And these are two guys who really identify and are natural in the outer. And like I said I’m just sitting in the passenger seat. But as he shifts he hasn’t quite gotten into the car, it starts going backwards. And all of a sudden it’s rolling backwards so fast that he can’t keep up or jump in.

And so now I have a heck of a mess on my hands because the car’s going faster and he’s been left behind and we’re just rolling backwards. And so from the passenger seat I just kind of lean over and reach down and try to put my hand on the brake. At the same time I have to somehow or other try to navigate that I don’t go backwards and don’t run into things. 

Well I can’t seem to do it. I can’t slow this thing down. This isn’t going to work. So I have to shift and jump over into the driver’s seat and use my foot instead of my hand to press on the brake, and by the time I effectuate this I’ve run right through a stop sign, so I’m lucky I didn’t get smashed in the intersection.

And I’m able to push on the brake to finally get it to stop, and the car stops rolling backwards, and of course I’m able to steer it a little bit so it doesn’t run into anything along the way and keeps going backwards down this street. And I get it to stop just before it would have gone into a lake.

Isn’t that a strange image? Well the meaning is, is the activities of the outer that are done for our physical well being are not going to get us there. In other words, you just don’t do it that way. These others are really into it and they have a lot of brightness about them, but the essence of life involves having to integrate the grandpa side of creation.

This is a direction that goes back to the source from within. This is usually unconscious. To access this space we must let go of our nuances and get fully grounded. Our indulgences in unconsciousness, like grounded is being able to step on the brake instead of with the hand, and you have to let go of the nuance, meaning you can’t just sit in the passenger’s seat you have to jump in the driver’s seat, and you have to have to steer this thing a little bit because you can’t sit in the passenger seat and steer it and try to push on the brake at the same time – it’s just not going to work.

And then the other things that are like indulgences that have to do with things that you then do in the outer, those things that you just go along with kind of in a collective this-is-what-you-do kind of thing to feel a little better about yourself, health-wise or however you want to put that, is not necessarily what it’s about either.

And so there’s the part that wants to have the indulgences. And then as a consequence there’s an unconsciousness that remains like that until we go into ourselves in a direct, grounded way. The outer nuances may look and feel good up to a point, but do not do anything for us other than satisfy our direct physical needs.

The satisfaction is only up to a point because the focus is upon the outer sensation only. This dream is also depicting the current state of affairs that I am in. I am not connected to the inner as needed, nor am I finding my way in the outer. 

This is like a suggestion that is being presented. It’s an adjustment, one can even say, that’s being shown or revealed. And to take on life more directly is one way of looking at it. To be more grounded is an upfront way, as another aspect. An escapism into the outer, like the idea of running, is correlated to being conscious in terms of my intention, but that same kind of unconsciousness, as reflected somewhere else, is also like driving into a lake.

From deep within, there is an inner essence that needs to come from the inner into the outer, if I am to break free of the illusory outer means of this whiplash kind of indulgence. 

I’m starting to have these dreams that ordinarily there has been a part of me that if I don’t kind of understand it on an inner level, I forget the dream. I just pass over it, just like it’s mind wanderings or something.

But now I’m remembering them, and then I write them up, not knowing what to expect, and then I understand them. So it’s almost as if something awakens in an outer capacity, as opposed to just strictly in an inner capacity. In other words it’s dreamt in an inner way, but it’s still going through the symbolic references of whatever it is in my nature that it has to utilize to create the imagery.

But I don’t quite catch up with it. But then when I take the imagery back, and the imagery can be so different from how I actually am, that all of a sudden I can reconcile that in the outer, too. That’s kind of interesting.
