davidWhat does freedom of choice have to do with spirituality, religion, and God? One way to think of freedom of choice is to consider that everything has been created by something greater than ourselves, yet we are not enslaved to that greater power, we can do what we like. Still, it is part of our design to return to our creator, but we have to do it of our own free will. So all our choices matter. But the most important decision is whether we are living on behalf of something else, or for ourselves.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So now comes something that is very similar to your knife thing that shows the two halves playing themselves out in the outer. And yet to begin with, if I hadn’t had this to realize that this was the motif of the theme of how a perception needs to be and that you catch up with these reflections. 

Another way of saying it is, you have a dream body side of yourself, or a body of light, which is separate from your physical body, and in that is the dreamer. And the physical body of things that is the more slowed down manifestation part, is the dreamed – and the two connect. That’s another way of saying it. 

So in this dream, because the setting is speeded up as a result of the influence of an inner vibration upon the scenario, it is not acceptable to carry on as if everything is as usual. In other words, you don’t reject things and whatnot. Everything is meaningful. 

So in this setting there is a person who invites things to be thrown in their direction. Now is that a real person? Well, it’s kind of like a mannequin in the image of a human being. To pitch things out in the usual way would be unacceptable in this speeded up setting in which revealing something more is there as a potentiality. 

In other words, you don’t just judge what is happening. Everything no matter how ludicrous it looked is depicting something. So to portray this, you know to further what this looks like, it’s like you have a mannequin that’s like on a placard or something, and it sits standing up just like a human being, and so you’re told that you have to throw these feathers at this mannequin. And to begin with, this is like stupid except there’s a difference in what’s going on. 

The mannequin, because it’s on a placard, if it moves a little bit there’s a sticky side, and whatever you throw sticks along that side. And when the mannequin falls back, whatever you throw sticks on the other side. And so these are like projections in which you’re throwing something that’s like a feather-like object, very subtle, and then how it hits, it’s a little bit coming from the dreamer side as a dreamed effect, it’s a little bit out of your control because how do you… you know, it’s not like you’re throwing a knife or something which is very focused. 

You’re throwing something that’s more like a feather, it’s more subtle, and yet it hits the sticky surface on the side of the body, first on the left side or then on the right, or however, depending upon how this mannequin is turned first one way or the other, and when it hits that subject it sticks out like a quill.

And so when the process is done, and the feather’s stick out like quills on each side of the mannequin’s body, how this is portrayed or what this looks like, what it appears to be in its random way, is most revealing. How the feather quills are lined by what seemed on the surface to be a totally random action depicts, revelationally, the end result indicates something most meaningful about the person who had thought his projections were of no meaningful significance. 

The meaning is, is everything we do reveals something meaningful in terms of the aliveness of manifestation in every regard and, of course, an aliveness as a kind of “as above, so below” kind of way of being able to see it, the dreamer of the dream. 

So what was set up was like a meter. In other words, it was like a type of gauge between the inner and the outer, which depicted the setting of a person in terms of consciousness and/or unconscious projection. This was possibly because the setting was speeded up so that the actions of a person in the outer spoke of the dreamer dreamed aliveness. 

The results depicted in the outer were not meaningless coincidences. Thusly, that which reflected in the outer spoke of the way that the divine was coming into its world from within. The dreamed may not be fully aware of how this was designed, but a teacher familiar with this speeded-up inner process was able to see the revelational meaningfulness. 

This is especially true for those who he works with in terms of awakening the secret substance in their heart. What that then reveals is reflective of how the divine is revealing himself. The divine reveals himself in the world in ways that are so wondrous that, for a person with eyes to perceive, this being the inner/outer teacher aspect of life, to step back and react reactively is not where it is at. 

Instead you have to reflect revelationally. To not do this is to not respect the freedom of choice and think that something needs yet to be manipulated or changed, in some sense, as if there is an alignment problem. Such a conclusion would be an annihilation of the divine when it comes to situations like this. 

That is why it is said that when the spiritual path has reached a certain point, that the human being yet doesn’t know what to annihilate, but both the wayfarer and the teacher can struggle with this annihilation business. You know, they can be off on what it is that they understand because so-called imbalances are not necessarily imbalances given the huge overallness of what God is. And everything is God.

And a human being reflects that so you never know for sure what to annihilate when you get to this level of revealing.

vibrations2The discussion of the relationship between the dreamer and the dreamed continues here (see The Dreamer and the Dreamed), with John delving into the details of the vibrational exchange between the two. The dreamer can’t affect outer life, except through the dreamed. So it is part of our human response, and responsibility, to get the transmission from our higher self and bring it through into manifestation – through what we think and do.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: I went into great detail describing this, plus I also had something very similar to your knife dream, only I used it as feathers instead of knives, but it’s slightly subtler almost, in one sense, but still saying the same thing.

In the meditation dream, there is the sense that what is meant to be exists in a kind of knowingness way, or a so-called inner Book of Life, like the dreamer. I never seem to avail myself of it in the dream world. 

In other words, in the dream world I see an outer part of myself, too, and so I know this in my bones, or in my sleep so to speak, in the dreamer part of myself – on the level of the dreamer, that is – aware of what is meant to be. 

Now when I say “meant to be” I mean in terms of the general vibe of something that’s meant to change, or take place, or come to pass. I don’t know the details, but I know the general vibe. That’s where one could get carried away, in terms of that kind of catching up with an insight can be a type of burning, like light, and one can have a collateral reactive way of perceiving it and that can be haywire. 

So there’s always the danger of the dreamer and the dreamed, because the dreamer is in more of a body of light. And because the dreamer is more in a body of light, and the dreamed is more in an essence of kind of manifestation, or of sound, the dreamer in light does not have the same access. In other words, the light is not seen by the dreamed. 

Only the onlooking dreamer, who cannot communicate what is known to the dreamed, you know has to do it by way of vibration and hints, knows. And so as a consequence of how the dreamer is I know that a change is coming, and that it is going to unfold in a general way, in other words as the dreamer I know this. It’s going to unfold in a general way that I can see and feel in my bones.

But when it comes to the dreamer, wherein I want to influence but cannot, and the dreamed, the unfoldment is just acted out. In other words, it’s acted out in a type of denseness outer – and I am not able to relate to the dreamed. In other words, there’s the dreamer knowingness, and then there’s the dreamed outer. 

So as a dreamer I support the dreamed vibrationally – and that’s all. And that seems to be the way it is as an unconscious gap between what I sense, see in my bones so to speak, because in this dream I’m the dreamer, and the dreamed is known secondary part of myself, and that which unfolds in the outer in a slower capacity. The general motif is discernible to the dreamer, but to the dreamed it is acted out in the outer in kind of a symbolic, generic way, with greater particularities of the unfoldment, but at a much slower pace. 

So in the dream it is repetitive imagery to note what I note. In other words, from that I see the general effect as a sense of myself, and I am observing that something is breaking down. But what takes place because of the aspect of the dreamed, is much slower in manifestation than it is having to contend with the light converted to sound as a type of vibrationally influenced manner. 

Because the influence is general, there is no attention to the detail, the very specific detail. It’s not presented, just the general motif. So the specific effect is reflected back by the dreamed to the dreamer. The dreamer has impacted or carried across the vibration, and it’s felt or known to some capacity as kind of like a higher-self energy or something, and then the dreamed, to the degree that the dreamed acts it out, how that is acted out gets reflected back and therefore you’re having the fluid end of the detail of that which is seen from the inner. 

So I can take on the vibrational transmission, and somehow because I’m connected to the dreamed, there is a reflection in some capacity. It is hard on the dreamed, however, who can only access the inflection as a kind of focus manneristic potentiality. How they see what can’t be seen is kind of hard to say.

And so there is a quality of the attention that gets played out as the vibration of the dreamed reflects back to the dreamer that which, in a general way, I am able to feel in my bones as kind of an onlooker on the inner. 

So what seems to exist is I am able to feel in my bones on some inner level what is unfolding vibrationally, but when I am acting things out in the outer there is a general amnesia. This is how the drama of inner into outer is being played out. 

On the inner it is mind boggling and my doom and gloom side has a lot to flinch over, yet in the outer the motion is acted out with subtle changes and effects that are kind of a surprise, or they may not be a surprise. It depends upon how well you take it. I mean maybe it’s better than you expected; maybe it’s worse than you expected if you were overly optimistic. It depends on how well you’re polished in regard of the dreamer, even. 

So in the dream, what I see and sense is that in the unfoldment of the vibration there is going to be a collapse – yet how this plays out falls upon the dreamed.

lucid-dreamWhat is the correlation between the dreamed and the dreamed? Part of it has to do with the relationship between the higher self, which operates on an inner level, and the lower self, which operates in the outer world. As humans we are meant to bridge this communication gap during our lives, yet whether we do or not, the higher self is always trying to guide and help us – if we choose to listen. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well in this dream I seem to be staying at some kind of a resort setting, kind of a primitive resort setting, with the teacher and a group of people. And then he has someone with him that I identify as his wife in the dream, but she’s kind of quieter and smaller and darker, not quite as visible as his actual wife.

As I’m going around the resort I go into a room where I know he has been but I go up some stairs and I’m obviously going in the anteroom to some kind of a martial arts workout studio, but the martial arts seem to have to do with throwing some kind of curved knives.

So when I go up there I pick up a couple of knives that seem to be mine and they’re… it’s almost like they have a little block handle and I go over to a wall and it’s almost like at that wall there’s almost like little divisions made with boards so you can store these knives, but you can also throw them against the back of the wall.

So it’s like I’m standing quite close and kind of taking my knives and just throwing them. I’m probably just throwing them six inches or so, and how they kind of curve into the wall. I’m getting a little bit of a feel for them, and then I take them and I store them in this same kind of compartment because it’s obviously where I guess people keep their knives when they’re there – I see other people have their knives.

Then I leave that area. I’ve gone downstairs and he’s there and we must be talking about something and then he’s made an appointment with the martial arts master. I never had had an appointment. I’m just kind of exploring and he offers me something. I think it’s a ticket that I could use that he hasn’t used all the… of what’s available on it, like if it’s a meal ticket.

So he offers me this ticket that maybe is a partially used meal ticket that was for him, and I look at it. I pick it up but then I put it back in its folder because it just doesn’t seem like the correct adab to use somebody else’s ticket, even if he offered it, so I say, no thank you. 

I said I’m not sure I can do that. And he makes some comment about how he could and I’d say yeah, well you’re a poor teacher but, you know, he can get away with things I can’t get away with you know. So I’m not just sure what the adab is there. I’m just kind of joking. 

Then he’s gone up for his appointment with the teacher and I’m noticing this dark woman that’s by him I think during this whole exchange, and then I think she or another person has come in. They make some comments about like how he has suggested that we sign up for different times to go up and use the showers. I guess it would be the showers in the martial arts studio because I guess that would be more efficient use of the water before we all went to bed.

But I’m thinking that requires pajamas doesn’t it? Apparently because you’d take the shower and you’d put on your pajamas, and I hadn’t brought any pajamas so I say well, I think I’ll just use the one in my room. 

There was another person that had come in to the room where his wife was, a woman, and I’m inviting her to maybe go outside because there are some horses there, and I don’t know if we can ride them yet, or if we just want to play with the horses. It’s like that dream was fading at that time. 

Then when I tried to get back into the dream I suddenly had this image of like I had opened the door and walked into this pharmacy, and there’s a couple pharmacists in bright light and they’re wearing red jackets. And for some reason my mind is suddenly correlating the difference between one would do something one way, which is kind of bold and bright, and a way in which one does things in tiny little segments like when I was listening to different little images of journeys last night on the tape. 

That’s all I pulled out.

John: The last image was the fact that you were actually ill, only it’s an illness when seen in this particular way that you don’t necessarily identify with as an illness, because what was going on was a dreamer and dreamed state. That was the theme of the dreaming. 

We are now having to catch up with the fact that there is an aspect of our higher self that, for me, is felt like in the bones, and in the feeling of that you have an awareness of something that is meant to be, or that hasn’t yet come across, and that’s the dreamer state.

And the dream state is the dumbed-down state in which you function in the outer. And how you function in the outer is affected by the dreamer state, even though you don’t make the one-to-one correspondence. 

You can have a greater sense of it when you’re asleep than you can have in the outer world, but everything you do then in the outer world, after you have reached a particular point of alignment in yourself, so that it’s no longer dealing with all kinds of aspects of yourself that do nothing. Then everything is meaningful. 

In your particular case, the whole main part of the dream went along and was unfolding in a way in which everything was meaningful, except for the very final part in which you actually went into a shadow effect, as opposed to corresponding reflective effects of dreamer and dreamed, or inner and outer.

And that’s why you had to approach the pharmacy and seek to be aligned, or readjusted, or put back into a cadence again so that you were then continuing in the dreamer/dreamed sense.

So the dreamer is the masculine quality, and the dreamed is the feminine quality in life. And the woman who was with the teacher, who was shorter and darker and whatnot, that was like his wife is creation in the symbolic aspect of the dreaming, and the dreamer is the teacher. 

So you have that as a split image to catch up with, to recognize that it works that way, and that you then progress to you going into this martial arts room, or whatever it was, and a martial arts room is in and of itself an area that is activated by the dreamer.

And so then the dreamed part of yourself takes and throws knives that stick in a wall in a particular way, that are actually stored that way, too. And how those knives and the way that that all goes into the wall reflects something from the dreamer. 

But you being the dreamed aren’t aware that you’re doing that, just like in the first part where you have the woman who is shorter and darker and whatnot that is meant to be the teacher’s wife, you could easily conclude in a certain naïvety that that’s suddenly his new wife or something.

But instead, she is creation, she is the dreamed element of him being the dreamer. And that the thing that he is giving that he can give, the tickets or whatever that you’re reluctant to accept, that’s the dreamer affecting the dreamed – and you are the dreamed.

When you refuse to shower in the place that is meant to shower, or to stay in the flow or the process of what’s unfolding, then that’s when you drop or lose the contango. You do something that breaks the dreamer dreamed correlation.

And that’s why you end up in the pharmacy – to be healed again. In other words, this sort of dreaming, or this sort of catching up with yourself, is a very difficult, or is a very unusual mystical way of looking at things. Because there comes a point in time when a level is reached in which neither the wayfarer nor the teacher can specifically state what there is that needs to be annihilated.

Because the dreamer and dream state is such a huge dimension of things, because it’s an aspect of how God works in the inner and the outer and, thusly, does not violate freedom of choice. 

To begin with, yes, you’re all over the place and things have to be done to be absorbed, or set aside, or however that is in order for you to be able to become invoked in this process of inner and outer, dreamer and dreamed. Once that process is evoked, things that you do that may look peculiar cannot necessarily be annihilated anymore either by yourself, or by the teacher, because the dimensionality of God is so incredible, revealing himself in ways that are all new each and every time, that even the teacher has to be careful of the fact that the teacher may be forming a concept.

The teacher has to determine if what he recognizes is… you know, what is the shift that needs to be made, or how is it to be perceived? The teacher can always tell when something needs tweaking or adjusting in some capacity.

And so to invoke that whole process, it was an alignment, a projection, and the dreamer state was activated as the teacher spun the energy. And as he spun the energy it’s faster, and when one’s in the dream state they never are at that speed to catch up with it, so then what reflects is the degree to which the speeded up, and the less, the wayfarer and teacher come together energetically.

Or another way of saying it, where the dreamer, which is inner, and the dreamed, which is all outer, correlate.
