Symbolic Reflection

Earth connectedWhy aren’t we naturally intertwined with creation? Mostly it’s because of the ways we are raised and the demands of society that cause us to grow separate at an early age. The journey to regain that lost connection is one of letting go of our personal identity and dropping our defense mechanisms. Those defense mechanisms may seem to protect us in the cultural world, but they only create a veil between us and the causative ways of creation.

John: One of the benefits of meditating is meditating can kind of help put you into a state so that when you dream you can actually slip into a deeper quality.

Meditation helps to facilitate an access, is able to reach through and beyond the personal prerogatives that have the veils that kind of keep one in a trance. Any kind of veil, or trance, or mannerisms that you take on has one distinct characteristic: it’s not intertwined.

In other words, anytime you’re struggling you realize that you can apply one word to it – how are you intertwined? And you would realize that you’re not intertwined. When you’re struggling you’re holding out something as a mannerism that’s separate.

So in this dream what I’m kind of doing is I’m struggling to get into the space. And so when you’re struggling in kind of this in-betweenness you know that there is an awareness, that has a communication to it, that arises subtly within. But you can’t access this when you’re not able to adhere to the subtleness behind the reflections – and knowing that that is all there is.

When you take it literally you then don’t hear the communications. It’s like a voice even. I mean, it can be impulses and such, but it’s like a knowingness that is coming as an aspect of inner sight.

So what I am going through is the need to adhere to another sense of myself that is waking up. To get my attention this is presented in a kind of black-and-white way. It is as if I am either attentive to an inner process or not.

In creation, for the inner awareness to be like a language, there is the need to be aware of this inner sense by noticing that the inflections are to a state and condition in which the outer can be accepted as predominating. However, behind that comes the more awakened inner orientation, in other words, to see through the appearances.

And then this is more of an official dream. And in this I’m in a building. In other words, I have traveled or come to this small town, and then there is this like, not a sophisticated building, kind of like a simple building, almost like a house that you use for office purposes, so it’s like a clinic. And as I come into this general reception area is this very stocky looking woman that I’m looking at. I am not sure whether she is a guy or a woman or not, and she is dispensing advice to a bunch of guys that are there.

So she has a way in this community in terms of what it is that she says that they can take and follow as if it’s a type of guidance. But when one of them leaves, she even calls them back because she realizes they somehow or another didn’t quite get it and so she takes and puts a stamp on his chest, shirt, as if that gives him the credentials to help him hold onto the attention that he needs to have.

I’m sitting down in a chair. I’m observing this and after she has done all of this she goes into the office behind me. I know I’m there in this clinic for health reasons or something, and she’s acting in something that I would define as when you are dispensing advice and whatnot, maybe she’s a quasi attorney or something. And so as I am sitting there just observing I am noticing how the guys she was directing became animated and quickened by her involvement in their lives in a way that helped them free flow better. I’m still trying to figure out what she is, and who she is.

So I turn to look at the doorway behind me where her office was that she went into, as if this will enable me to figure this out. And on the door, instead of seeing her name and title are the words “Live in it.” So as I ponder what this means, my attention is captured by her dog who is out in this waiting room area.

So I find the dog’s friendly and spirited demeanor as inviting, as intriguing, as fun to play with, and ultimately I push the dog in a way so that it lies down, and then I push the head all the way down to the ground as well. I want to see if the dog will submit to a quiet composure and acceptance. I am impressed that the dog knows how to listen and abide in this unspoken way.

The meaning is that everything in the dream is me in various particular ways. The feminine energy is able to counsel so that things are able to find and recognize a guidance. This works because there is a focused sincerity that engages the energetic. By engaging the energetic you actually give it a spin, you flip it a little bit so that there’s an inflection behind it that can come out. She’s able to put herself, in other words, advisingly into their shoes so to speak.

As a result, the environment is stimulated, and yet I’m still a little bit sluggish because I’ve come into this like I need to go to a health clinic or something, I’m not sure what for even, so I’m a person still looking for an answer. And watching her, which is the feminine part of myself, do what she does helps simple farming community guys, which is my innocence, who have come to her with no qualms, that’s why you can say that they are innocent, in other words, they don’t have a sophistication that gets in the way that would diminish or challenge or question or not be able to accept the interaction.

To see it working like this is refreshing. The result was a mutually surrendered scenario. The approach is direct but gentle, the same as her dog, which is man’s best friend, spirited and friendly but not overbearing, knowing when to surrender to receive and thus able to intertwine.

And then in this dream, I am being directed towards an energetic cadence, although I do not remember the details. I was also being shown how not to be. Because experiences like that are confronting, to be challenged in this mannerism is apt to put you into a position of having to defend, thus whatever the dream was, was blocked out.

This being an example of how and why it is important to simply shift the vibrational energy from a condition instead of challenging it directly and, thereby, you leave the person free to catch up with the effect as an experiential exception to the density of their nature. That is why we learn through symbolic reflection. If directly confronted our defense mechanisms intervene.

Effectuate a difference by not engaging things that are imbalanced, but by taking and creating a counter reflection through a vibrational way of maintaining one’s self so that what comes across as an input reflection to the degree to which it is recognized, or seen, the other person then adjusts as if it is so natural that you are unable to notice, and this other person is not able to notice that the adjustment they made wasn’t something that they did naturally.

However, if you took and hadn’t approached the young boy and instead tried to approach the older boys that are more set, what you would have ended up doing would be creating an arm’s length difference because that’s the nature of how things are in the outer.

Everything in the outer maintains itself in the outer by having established a defense mechanism in which it holds itself separately. And you have to not question or challenge that because that is a freedom that exists in terms of how the fabric of life is designed to exist in this mannerism. You work with the mannerism by going behind to the design vibration and cause the energy to vibrate in a different way.

And to the degree that the person or object is able to be affected by this more pervasive and more open vibration, it’s kind of like that is their business, not yours, but if you make it your business you can’t make a change happen so you have to do it in a kind of invisible capacity.

You can’t even go there with the intention mentally of doing this, that, or the other because even that can be seen, so you have to live in a quality of yourself that exists in a space of essence that, in and of itself, whatever and however it acts and does things, is always projecting a reflection that if you can go behind the reflection you find the difference.

If you can’t go behind the reflection, you’re left with whatever mannerism or reaction that you want to take on, but you’re not challenged by that other than the fact that the inflection did not have the reaction that you took on as a defense mechanism built into it. It was free of that.
