Bridging the inner with the outer, or the higher with the lower, is the work of a spiritual life. We can feel when we make those connections, and also feel when we lose them again. Our systems know, in the same way as these dreams give insight to the dreamer about this struggle. Fundamentally, we need to shift our focus from thinking the outer world is what is important, to understanding that it is inner guidance that should lead us through the outer world.

Jeane: Well, I still seem to be stuck in this pattern of having one repetitious dream.
So, in this case, it was like before I went to bed last night, I had gone to my computer and I downloaded some audio and videotapes. And I’m not used to quite how the download works on the computer yet. I’m not sure how I play these things or how they work yet.
So I felt like I kept dreaming about that. I would dream that I was doing the download and some of the tapes downloaded just right, and other tapes seemed to download the middle part and not the beginning and end part. And some tapes downloaded completely.
And I’m trying to figure out how to rectify that so that all the tapes download completely, and that I know how and where to play them. And so it felt like I just had repetitious dreams about that whenever I was dreaming.
John: What you’re trying to do is you’re trying to connect the inner and the outer. And that was the theme of the dreaming: that you’re haywire in the outer if you don’t recognize the inner connectivity of yourself, if you don’t reach that point within that is the body of light, or however you want to describe that, that is outside of the outer reflective condition of yourself.
So, what you were doing is you had this activity that symbolized the attempt to do something like this. In other words, using an Internet process, you’re trying to take and create the medium by which you downloaded from one way of something being, into another way that would be more utilizable.
Something that then could function more tangibly. And it’s exactly what I dealt with, as well. The only difference is that is I saw myself in the linkage and connection of an inner, and its corresponding reflective outer. And then saw what happens when you lose that and find yourself lost again. And that’s what I dreamt. And I had two dreams that did that, each in their own way.
And the first one is in the meditation, and what I wake up dreaming about is the idea of receiving multiple awards for what turns out—which means two different awards—which turns out to be the same end result.
I noticed that there are those who feel that this shouldn’t happen. However, from my position and perspective of life, well, this makes complete sense in both areas in my being. That which I am, as a being, is honored and is seen as being significant, simultaneously, in both worlds. And of course, both worlds are the inner and the outer.
It is through the sensation level that I develop a glimpse between the two areas. And this time, the whole thing is more of the connection of inner/outer, and it’s humorous because it’s like a joke between the inner and the outer, as if they come together as one—and that one is one’s true and whole self.
So the significance of this is I am of the opinion that in receiving an award for meritorious achievement in the outer, that because we live in an inner and outer vibratory universe, that this is a setup in which it is possible to become aware upon the inner level, as well.
In other words, normally, you just see this sort of thing happening in the outer. You don’t realize that whatever you achieve, or accomplish, or do, or what transpires in the outer, has also taken place simultaneously on the inner, except the outer is reflective.
The reason for why an award on both levels is possible to know is because consciousness flows from inner into outer. When we awaken, we realize and see that. What this means is the reflective outer that is ordinarily veiled off from the inner flow, is able to consciously correspond and experience the connectivity as a oneness.
In this dream, I’m seated in a room with others who are able to correlate consciously the inner with its reflective outer. A person comes in the door—comes from the outer into this inner—where I’m seated along with others. And in coming in, he proceeds to make a huge commotion, as if, you know, he’s righteous about his right to be there or something.
And I realize this process included a part of himself that was already there, or the corresponding higher inner self. And here he’s tried to come in to connect with that, with the outer, that has been reflected. And a person from up front, that I don’t see all the way to the front because I’m seated kind of more towards the middle, steps forward and expeditiously evicts this guy.
And then the dream shifts and I’m outside of this room or in another scenario in the outer, I see a bunch of basketballs. Well, about 20 of them, all in a pile or roll about, that seem to have been just dispersed. And I pick up one of them, to examine, and throw it back into the general pile with the other balls.
The meaning of it is, to lose what connects the inner flow with the outer reflection, which is a connectiveness that is lost when the outer reflection is amiss, is what is going on in this dream. In other words, I get carried away, or that part gets carried away coming in, and so then it loses the continuity with the inner.
In the first dream, the outer reflection goes off on a tangent and causes a commotion that wouldn’t have happened if you were synchronized connectively with the corresponding inner consciousness. The lower self that isn’t connected to the higher self consciously loses the natural graciousness that exists.
When this connection is broken, the inner and outer remain veiled from each other, as the outer parts go into the collective of life, which again is all reflective. That’s the image of a bunch of bouncing balls that have no real focus anymore, is the symbolized portrayal of this effect.
