After his vision from earlier in the night (see An Insatiable Need) John had these images as a follow up. While they don’t quite show all the answers, they offer different angles on the same territory – as dreams often do as we work things out, drawing the wealth of our insights and knowings from our unconscious, to our semi-conscious, to our consciousness. It is easy to see how to struggle in the outer life to gain more possessions. That same struggle on the inner is not as obvious, yet the rewards are much greater. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: Then when I came to bed I figured well, I didn’t know what would happen but in my sleep I was confounded with this energy trying to suddenly come alive with its activity and such, and I had image, after image, after image of things in which this energy was bounding out of control. It was almost like something was unleashed.
I could have stopped and woken up and written that up, but it was like I didn’t know what the answer to that was. Of course if I’d have stopped and written it up, bringing it into the outer, maybe it would have imaged itself to where I’d have gotten it.
But some part of me kept saying that there is more to this, there’s more to this, there’s more to this. And so I didn’t do that. And finally I had this image in which it kind of portrayed what is kind of going on.
In this image, I’m like a boy, 12, 13 years old or something, and I’m with my father. And he walks into this warehouse area where this guy signals to get our attention. The guy first of all gives a hard look at me and kind of needs me to pass on by a little bit because he really needs to get the attention of my dad.
And what he wants my dad to do is he has this scenario where he has to go up and down a river, or a waterway of some sort, and it’s part of how he feeds animals, horses or whatever – a type of power, I guess, if it was horses. And that’s his role, and he has to do that.
And if he has to do that, he wants to maximize that activity. So he would like my dad to build him something that just goes up and down the river as he’s going up and down the river, this goes with it with no effort. And from this is spread out in a way, hooks hang down so that he can be catching fish as he is doing this.
Not that he puts any focus into doing it. If he has to go up and down the river anyway, it might as well be accomplishing this purpose as well. And so as a kid I’m sitting here pondering: this seems kind of strange in a way, because what’s going to hook the fish? There’s no fisherman at the other end of the line. He’s just doing this kind of casual. Then I realized: consciousness tends to get itself on the hook – so I guess that would work.
And so because the theme of the dreaming had to do with a quality in which there is an inner awareness that is one thing, and an outer aspect of that which is another, in manifestation. And the inner is like a consciousness like a fish, and the outer is like an aspect of gold, something that has man striving for, not knowing that what they’re really striving for is something that in a deeper level is this wealth from within.
That means, then, that the fishhooks hanging down catching fish, he is like, because he is required to be a particular way in the world in terms of working with feeding, or enhancing, something as he goes up and down the courses and waterways of life, that he is also enhancing that by keeping the potentialities open with these fishhooks hanging down.
And the corresponding way of saying what he is doing, using an outer context way of saying it, is this whole action is creating multiple streams of income. In other words, you view the consciousness of the inner, and then the flip side of that is a gold, or a wealth, in the outer, and the fishhooks hanging down there are catching things that are just jumping on the hook, so to speak, because he’s not really fishing, per se, he’s not putting his attention to that. He’s creating multiple streams of income.
And so what are those multiple streams of income about? None of that is revealed in this dream. It is about something, just like the image was about something, the vision image, in which there is this inner and outer capacity connectivity of the expanse that it wakens, that you come aware of, that seems not to be counterbalanced. It seems to just be evolving.
And you don’t notice that, and you don’t experience the degree of that, and you don’t realize that you’re counterbalancing that because you haven’t calmed yourself, or emptied yourself yet, to be able to have that kind of linkage and understanding.
In other words, you have to get to one to get to the other. And then from that other, then you come to recognize, or realize, or somehow denote where the heart plays an even greater role, which is the “something else” that I couldn’t describe in the vision.
And so then this gets put into action in the dream that shows this image, the boat and the waterways of life that are enhancing or feeding something in life but, at the same time, there is the awareness, and the awakening, and the linkage, and the connection that is catching up with something in that very process at that time.
So then there is one other little minuet that tries to tell you what – even though it’s not revealed in the dream thus far, nor is it revealed in this image – what it is that one is catching up with, it points out, though, that it is something hidden that is important.
Because in this image, it starts off with the three of us and we’re walking down in an area, and then it’s kind of like there’s a storage area to the left, and then there’s something else to the right.
Now, I stop at that intersection. I’m with another guy and a woman. We don’t need all three of us to walk over to retrieve what is in the storage locker. I know that, so I stop there. And this guy can go get it, and we’ll wait for him to come back. Because then we go up to the right.
And right where I’m standing I can see both the storage locker place, and I can see this other place off to the right that we need to go to next. So there’s no reason to wear ourselves out – me walking with the woman to the storage. I mean, we’re not adding anything to the equation.
This part of myself can take and go and retrieve that hidden treasure and bring it back. And then the feminine part of my nature that’s able to ground and make it come through into life, that aspect of a clarity can then stay and flow over to this other place once that has been retrieved, whatever is needed, out of storage in order to then go to this other place to open something up there from having gotten something out of storage.
So basically what this is saying is that what one is doing in the outer, and in the mannerisms in which they are coming across and are seen as having this, that, or the other nature about themselves, is important – but they don’t know what that is.
I mean, I don’t know what is going to be retrieved from storage. All I know is that whatever that is has something to do with this over here that we’re going to next, but that image stops right there. I don’t know what is going to be gotten out of storage, nor do I have the foggiest idea what it is over here on the right.
I think we need to go there next; I’m not even certain of that. I’ll know better when that thing is brought back from storage.
