One aspect of letting go is often overlooked: when you let go of things, you have to put other things in their place – because nature will always fill the void. For instance, if I let go of the idea that my career is the thing that defines my life, then I need to consciously choose what I want to replace that with – let’s say, that I want to be in service to something greater than myself. If I don’t choose what that replacement is, the vacuum could be filled by something completely mundane, like playing video games all the time.

John: So, you’re dreaming the lead up to a switch (see the first part of this discussion here). And when the switch hits, you’re going to find it harder to hold on to those synaptic reflections, because they will seem strange to you, and the overall flow of things will be what is normal to you.
Right now, you’re still trying to hold those synaptic inflections in the equation of how you are and who you are, in terms of what’s going on around you. You’re still trying to keep that in some sort of cadence. But, ultimately, it will be hard to get that in there, because at least on the inside, you’ll have more and more to do of what is going on in terms of your focus and attention and responsibility to something that is outside of yourself, but is yourself, as an overallness.
So to see the idiosyncrasies and to put weight and influence and lean towards those idiosyncrasies, that becomes peculiar. Right now, it’s not peculiar. Right now, they’re there, and then there’s those little flickers that kind of see through it, but you always still have that prima materia still there with those inflections. That other hasn’t blasted through to such a degree, so that you don’t hold onto some sort of manner or meaningfulness of the way things are around you. I guess what I’m saying about this is that this is a type of dying to a way of feeding oneself in some sort of way that one thinks they need, or have, to do.
Then whatever you have in your world around you has to come into being supported. In other words, your sense of security, your sense of self, all starts to relate in a way that gets a little bit strange when it comes to talking to people. Because you can no longer sit there and spin in relationship to who you are, or how you are, because you have that as prevalent. It falls away.
Your attention doesn’t have time for that. It goes into a bigger equation that is unfolding, that’s more in the overallness, to which you’re just a part of. But prior to you falling into something or going into something like that, you still have your heebie-jeebies; you still have your synaptic inflection. And when you have that, then when things happen in some dynamic way or another that causes a jolt, that then is relayed back to you with some insightfulness from within.
And those little insightful relaying-backs are interesting. They’re something you can write down. They have a lot of meaning to them. But they’re compartmentalized. In other words, they’re states, little separate little states, and you deal with it and deal with it and deal with it, and little by little they go poof.
So, it’s an interesting kind of letting-go state that you’re doing. In other words, the feminine nature loves to have things—we’re just describing the state now. Before I was describing this from the standpoint of how it evolved. How this was a precursor to something much more that then opens up in terms of you being part of a greater overallness.
But as a state, it is portraying a certain way that you’re leaning energetically in life yet. And that leaning, you just need to let go of it. You don’t need it anymore. In other words, the feminine nature just to begin with, in and of itself, has a dependency upon the masculine flow of energy. And so, what develops is a kind of dialogue or rapport.
And so to begin with, the feminine gets attached and gets hooked to a greater way of being that is associated with a masculine quality in her life, usually through her relationship or boyfriend, or whatever it might be. And she supports that by reporting back to that that which was awoken in her by the flow of energy, the ideation flow of energy, that comes from the masculine.
Now, in a shallow way of being, that reporting back actually makes the masculine feel good and there’s a sense of insecurity being fulfilled there, in terms of the masculine. And the feminine comes to know that, so she does that, as a sense of rapport, as an energetic connective rapport to what was an insightfulness then gets reported back as a getting it, as a connection.
And this kind of reporting back and this kind of connectivity then causes the masculine—with ideas that need more grounding and more rooting, to be more rooted—causes the masculine then, to have a certain sense in terms of how it feels itself.
And so, what you’re doing in your dreaming, is that you’re getting to a point where you can’t report back in the same way. In other words, whatever is memorable to you, you want to report back. And as you report back, you would have the belief that the masculine is interested in what you have to say as a discovery that you have made. Of which that discovery, then, is part of a grounding then for the masculine’s flow of ideation.
However, there comes a point in time, when those little synaptic things that people find interesting and meaningful that they lean on, that they can’t do that anymore. And when you get to a point when you can’t do that anymore, then your attention changes and what you then find yourself having to make note of is something that has nothing to do with the particular idiosyncrasy of something in the outer. It has more to do with what that is all about in terms of an even bigger picture way of seeing something.
It’s a little bit strange as it becomes like that because a human being isn’t accustomed to functioning like this. They’re accustomed to functioning in terms of having to convince themselves that they need this and they need that, and then they talk all of that up, as if that is what makes life interesting and makes them tick.
In other words, we can talk about what you go through and how to experience it and how to look at it, but at the same time we talk about it from a standpoint and a way in which we don’t go get all carried away about it. Our attention is actually slowly shifting to something of a bigger energetic consequence.
And yes, that’s okay, and that’s interesting, but will that actually further something in terms of how we take in a greater whole. We’re shifting like that. But until you make those shifts, you go through these little inflection nuances. And they’re kind of haunting. They’re haunting because they’re unnatural and therefore, you really don’t have a good linkage to the higher self. In the further letting go, you keep advancing with a deeper and deeper linkage to something that is your greater being.
