Taking It On

spiritualityIn this dream image, Jeane lets a job opportunity pass her by – all while complaining about how things are being done. On a spiritual path, taking on more responsibility means becoming more conscious of what we are doing and why we are doing it. In other words, it is our responsibility to steer our inner lives in the direction of our yearning. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well, the main dream I had I was working in an office and there’s a reorganization going on. And the man in charge indicates to me another man that he’s going to put in charge at a certain level.

It’s a position I could have tried for but I didn’t. It was kind of a brunette guy that takes that position, and then he kind of sits a little distant in another area.

And I’m studying what’s going on with the organization and I can feel that, ultimately, at some level I’m somewhat disappointed with the organization that’s going on right now, on the outer, that it’s almost like it’s paying attention to things on a certain level. And it seems too shallow to me and is not how I’d hoped things would go or something.

So it’s like I’m just studying that. That’s all I really remember as far as dreams last night.

John: Well, the dream even portrays a bit of what is meant to be if a part of you wasn’t as sluggish, in terms of having lowered the energy of yourself in some fashion, like we were talking about earlier.

Of course, in this case, that has resulted in the outer in terms of you coming down with this horrendous cold. And when I usually come down with a cold sometimes it sharpens my clarity, but for you it acts reflectively, in terms of an imbalance, in terms of how you’re carrying yourself in the outer.

In other words, it has a different reflective effect. And in your dream, you portray this condition a bit in terms of something that is important that isn’t living itself out the way that it needs to be able to live itself out.

What you’re indicating is that you know that you could have been, or should have been, directing, or steering, or in charge of something in the place where you are situated. You know that. You knew that that was there as a potentiality, but you didn’t take it on. And, as a consequence, things are not… I mean where you find yourself instead complaining and disappointed in how it is that things are unfolding.

And the thing about an image like that and it actually is actually a teaching type dream that I have to take into account, in terms of myself, is that when you find yourself grumbling and complaining about how something is when you had every opportunity, in terms of the potentiality, to be involved in the directing and the leadership of what was unfolding and turned it down, that in the complaining, in that mannerism, you actually even veil yourself from the answer that could open right up in front of you.

And the reason is because you were at the cusp of being able to steer or direct something and didn’t take it on means that you’re now plagued by having veiled that role or that station that you’re meant to catch up with.

And so what the dream also indicates, in the case of me, is no wonder I am so grumbly and uptight and disturbed by how it is that I see things in the outer and it’s because it’s a precursor to having to take on a more direct way of steering it, or journeying, in terms of the unfoldment.

In your case it took you to the point where you apparently, as far as one could see, you had all the qualifications and yet you said no. And whenever you do that you become more sluggish when your energy slows down and a part of you can’t get happy about things, or content about things, or can’t find its cadence and orientation because life unfolds. It doesn’t go backwards very well.

When it goes backwards there is often times a type of cringing effect that is somewhat memorable, although 95%, or something like that, kind of suppressed and unconscious is still there kind of nickering about. And so you have a sense of a knowingness inside of what is being asked of you, and is waiting patiently for you to get back on track. Isn’t that interesting?
