Sharpening the Consciousness

sharpenWe are all the characters in our dreams and, as we saw yesterday (see Self-Correction), Jeane was given a remedy – in the form of pills – as a way to deal with an inner issue she is facing. Here, John sees a problem, yet from a masculine perspective thinks he can’t do anything about it. And that’s the right process for him – the timing isn’t quite there for the awakening energies to be balanced. There is more change that needs to occur first. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, now you want to know what the problem is? It’s only a problem from the masculine’s perspective. None of these problems are problems, really. It’s just kind of how things are in the subtle energetic of life. They’re there so that a conscious way to shift and shape things can happen.

So in this dream, I’m asleep in a vacation cabin that is a cabin that’s owned by this friend of mine, and he’s had to leave or go somewhere. So his wife is behind, I’m in a bed, and she’s in a bed, and there might be another person that’s passed out that’s in the cabin, too.

Outside of this place is a guy that’s supposed to take care of the outer and make sure everything is secure. Apparently there are wild animals, or dangerous animals, that prowl around, and him safeguarding from the outside kind of keeps this sort of stuff at bay. So he represents a raw energy of things.

Well, he comes into the house and obviously concludes that the other guy is passed out, and he assumes that I’m probably in the same condition, but I’m pretending to be more asleep than I am. And the woman is kind of awake, but she doesn’t seem to, because he’s under the employ of her husband, doesn’t see that there’s any problem, and so she even kind of talks to him a bit and what he does is completely inappropriate.

He starts going through the drawers and looking for this, that, and the other, and she doesn’t seem to be at all alarmed about it, but I could tell what he’s doing. He’s looking for something to steal. And he thinks that he has total control of the situation, that I’m checked out, and she’s naïve.

I kind of lay there just seeing how far this is going to go. Now, this part I don’t remember what happened that came up and arrested him, so to speak, in terms of jumping up and doing something. But what I do remember is the effect of whatever was done. And it’s now morning, that part is a skip in the dream.

And the woman thinks that I’ve gone too far, and I say to her, “If I hadn’t done what I did and stopped him, you wouldn’t be alive today.” She just doesn’t get it. What I know is that he would have either found something to steal, and then would have had to kill her so that there would be no one that could report on him, or if he didn’t find anything to steal there was nothing to keep him from taking advantage of her.

And so what I assume and see and believe would have happened is if he hadn’t stolen something he could have done whatever he wanted to do, thinking that I was passed out and no one was there to be attentive, and then kill them.

And so it seems that I’m the only one who realizes how treacherous and dangerous this guy is, in his intent when he came inside. When he was on the outside in the outer was one thing, but when he tried to come to the inside of the thing, to the subtler energies of things, it was too much for him.

And the dream ends where we have traveled, I mean he’s been a prisoner and we’ve traveled to another place, and I and another person are in the basement of this house, and we have this guy down there in the basement. And the time has come when he needs to be brought to the top, brought out, you know basically, I suspect, turned over to the authorities.

And so this other person says that, it’s okay, that I can go upstairs because he can handle this guy and he’ll bring him up in a minute. But I know better, and I say to him, “We need to both bring this guy up.”

See the thing is, again this is another scenario in which I can tell this thief is laying back down acting as if he’s been subdued, but if he rises up and attempts to escape he’ll overpower this guy. It’s going to take the both of us to bring him up.

So the simple meaning of the dream is the dream is saying that there is a raw energy that is not well understood by others – by other parts in myself, anyway, that are less aware and, as a consequence, because there’s a letting up or not being attentive in that regard, something is about to rise up and destroy what exists.

And this raw energy is supposed to be taking care of the external state of affairs, but has gotten out of control and has invaded a situation, or entered the house, and is seeking to take over. This raw energy is of the opinion that there is nothing that can be done to stop it from having its way.

In other words, from what it sees it thinks it has the situation scoped out and, if it acts out, or is allowed to fully act out, its mannerism is such as it will destroy the fabric of what exists, as it sees things.

So, in the dream, I am the only one who realizes how dicey this has gotten, in other words, that more conscious part of myself can sense this stuff going on. But then there’s the feminine part that’s naïve, and then there’s the other part that’s checked out, and then there’s also the part that’s kind of seeing how far it will go before it suddenly springs to life and acts.

I guess you might say that fortunately there’s a more conscious side that understands this raw energy and what it is capable of doing, which knows how to handle it, and things have progressed to the point where it is now time to bring this raw energy into the light of day – because it’s being now brought up from down below.

And of course this energy is kundalini energy and you have to work with that. You don’t take and snuff it, or stamp it, or repress it – you have to work with it. With a teacher, for example, every time it sees a student act up, the teacher realizes that this is raw energy and that the teacher has to figure out how to play with that, how to work with that.

Maybe there’s a point where enough is enough, or in the case this guy was arrested by us, but at the same time you play with that raw energy. You don’t obliterate it.

So how does this apply? I can see how in present life, in existence now, that there’s an energetic quality jeopardizing the current scenario. I can feel it. I have yet to put my feelings directly upon it.

On the surface I am of the opinion that this is manageable because I am able to see it. What I’m talking about is an example of this blindside. A bigger macro example has to do with a tenuousness that is brought on in society by the economics of things, the politics of things, even the way sports energy flies around.

Those associations, and way of life images, have their way of anesthetizing and afflicting things in the fabric in life that keeps things kind of destabilized, keeps things kind of numb or dumb. Not seeing these forces for what they are tends to undermine existence, or the flow in the outer, of the status quo.

This in turn affects the way I relate, in that the tendency is to remain asleep because you’re hit with this and you kind of want it to go – you think that it all runs its course, given passage of time – and of course that is the course of least resistance.

This is also the course that, little by little, leads to a tearing down of a state of order and balance in the Whole. In other words, that’s going on, you’re seeing it. What I’m doing is reporting but I can’t do anything about it, but you’re reporting that you can. On some level you have the robes, the state, and you have the pills to do it.

And then I wrote: I am seeing this from a point within that is able to sense the way the energy is slowly unfolding, but that doesn’t mean that this is something that is able or going to change, nor am I going to change it.

Because anything I might do, or even talk about, or even anything, I live with it. It’s kind of like an awkwardness that just has to be. It actually has a useful purpose behind it, too. It’s part of the sharpening of a consciousness. It’s part of the awakening process to go through it.

For the masculine, it’s a type of longing, it’s a type of thing that on the flip side and the blindside is the hearkening to something that eventually is able to come through. So I don’t know what you call that, but it is part of the process nevertheless, and so you don’t take and slam it in any direct regard because then that hurts something.

There is a quality in there that’s wonderful as well, even though one can look at it as out of balance, or bizarre, or something. It’s there for a reason and it has its importance, and if you do something to change it you will affect the psyche of life. So I can’t do anything about it; I just know that that’s what would happen.
