The “dreamed” state was discussed in our last post (see The Dreamed State), and here John continues his exploration – from a masculine perspective in this imagery. What is being shown is that there is no way forward without a balance between masculine and feminine. It’s as true in our inner lives as it is in our dream lives as it is in our waking lives. God and creation have built everything in a state of balance. Could the future of man hold out any other possibility? Particularly if man wants to be an agent of God on this planet.

John: In my meditation dream, the first thing I had to make note of was that from the way I have been living I have gained an appreciation for life and, as a result, I am seeing more balance and enjoyability in terms of how things are, overall, when there is the inclusion of feminine nature, or the feminine aspect. In other words, basically being able to be content with things in the outer.
In other words, what I’m doing is the step of taking the dreamtime into the outer. But I realize that the energetic cadence, which comes from outer reflections, when you approach it through the dreamtime is easier to handle when the flow embedded therein – you just embrace it. In other words, you don’t just see it as a nightmare, or as a peculiarity, or something. It’s meaningful in terms of trying to bring something to you as a quality that you carry through – and we each carry something through.
Now, we’re brought up to understand life as if it exists through our senses but, on a deeper level inside of ourself, our higher-self level, the self that is the three-million-year-old man, it’s brought up to understand life as existing in this dreamtime. This is how you shape and you change things.
And so this is the state that I recalled deep inside of myself, but I find myself instead in a place where things are in disarray and need to be put back together again. This is a place in which the predilection in terms of how you contend with things is based upon yielding to masculine conceptualizations and impressions, ideas, and so called flow.
So much is this so, that there is a general rule that lords itself over everyone and everything, so the conditions are actually so unbalanced that when it comes to dealing with life, the powers that be impose their conceptual way.
In the dream it is okay to look… in other words, it is deemed to be okay. In other words, this isn’t really true because the feminine is excluded in this kind of world. In other words, part of my three-million-year-old man looking at something in a capacity only. It’s okay to look at the masculine ideas to get things going again, in other words, that’s where the conceptualization exists.
I have found that inside that coincides with how things are in terms of idealization in the outer, but I am acting more in keeping with what feels right, in other words the deeper part inside of the dream body. This dreamtime state goes through the same phases, the same steps as you go through, it’s a shift, and you go through the same stages and the same steps that you go through when you’re just dealing in a dense outer capacity way.
But then when you start to contend with the light body, or the dream body, then you go through this same sense, too, in terms of how it gets polished and directed. And so within your dream you carried the essence of something that will keep you held back, but it’s still a dreamtime that you have to contend with.
Within my dream, I dreamt how I’m having to contend with this in a masculine-oriented dream, the outer being a dream, and I’m carrying a dreamed connection that knows it to be different, able to be different.
So I’m able to act more in keeping with what feels right and, in doing so, just without even thinking I pick up two objects that are deemed to have a feminine orientation. I am immediately reprimanded. I am told that it is only because we are in creation an exception can be made, or is possible, and I’m able to take one feminine aspect, but I also have to take one masculine aspect.
I could have, in other words, taken two masculine aspects, but the fact that I picked up two feminine aspects, well, they can let me have one, as long as I bring one masculine element to the table.
Well the deeper importance of dreaming like this is, it’s putting me in the condition, like it did for you, of waking up embodying an aspect of what that all feels like as a dreamed condition. So I wake up trying to not lose the space that I am able to resonate with, which as a flow has the ability to show, or catch up with, or shift into a greater appreciation of life.
In other words, I have found that in the dreamed. I am not taking and going with the motif that exists in the outer of shifting in more masculine. That doesn’t work. I’m shifting in more of the feminine to counterbalance it because the feminine holds the dream state; it doesn’t just float in spirit energy.
So I’m confronted with the masculine tone of things as still trying to impose their precedence today, and I’m recognizing that what is necessary, in order for life to be more natural in the outer, is the inner experience, which of course I’ve already said this before but this is the part that is in the dreamed state of one’s being, or what some call the dreamtime.
It is one thing to relate to the dream and the dreamer, but to live what one experiences as states that become like more towards a station of how you carry yourself and aren’t affected by outer conditions then, that’s more like a station, that is where the dreamed or dreamtime is sustained, or held.
