We humans are easily distracted. Whenever we put our focus and attention on aspects of the external world, we are treading a dangerous path of losing our deeper connections. But the point is not to hide from the world, but rather to experience it in a forensic way, i.e., by seeking to understand the psychologies at play in us, while also trying to see the bigger energetic picture and respond to that. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: Then in the next dream, what I remember of it, it seems like I have something like a little iPod but the connector from it to whatever device I want to either download it on, or play music on, is particularly short, the cord is particularly short so it pulls out easily. And this seems to cause me to have to memorize more of the music myself, at least that’s the impression I had from the dream.
John: Yeah, it’s taking away a freedom. In other words, whenever you’re tied to something, and you’re having to adjust accordingly, it takes your attention away from a sense of flow that is important because in the sense of flow you also have the sense of sight, and things inflect and come through you, and naturally come through you. But when you have to go out of your way to adjust, and accommodate, and contemplate, and make allowances for, all of that sort of stuff gets quite draining. And it’s either frustrating or nauseating. And if it’s frustrating or nauseating, it’s that way because deep down you sense how it inhibits that which is freer.
Jeane: Then I have a dream in which it feels like I have a boyfriend that lives… it’s almost like I live in one apartment house and he lives in an apartment house that’s just across the way. In other words, you just kind of walk down and out the door and across the street and up. He’s on the second or third floor with several roommates.
Well, it feels like with one of his roommates, I think he’s a Japanese guy, young guy, he seems to help me with my computer now and then, which is something my boyfriend might not even know because it feels like at one point I’m sitting outside trying to figure out something on my computer – it’s a little handheld computer, like an iPad – and it has music that started playing on it and I can’t figure out how to get it shut off from working things on the screen because it has a whole bunch of little marks on the screen and I don’t know which one’s the Off button. It’s not marked. It’s something I know his roommate could help me with.
John: In the very beginning what you’re doing is you’re portraying how you take and go off and establish the effort that you have to make to go off and establish a motif that you then are caught up in for a long, long period of time. What’s interesting and cute about it is the way you describe this effort of going off on the tangent, which you then hold. And that’s a long, long dream of being on the tangent then.
What this dream is doing is it’s portraying a pattern or a manner that one has to pay attention or buy into things that are in the atmosphere of that which they associate with but only as indirect aspects in terms of what they associate with. In other words, it’s like because I’m interested, you pay attention to that and factor that in to the way you look at things. Because we’re interested in going to Israel you factor in the fact that one could go and stop and meet my friend in Florida – because that is something that is interesting or vibrantly in the scenario of things.
So what’s happening is your dream is causing you to look at the fact that you do this. In other words, you have this relationship with something that’s out and about in another building and the whole bit but, at the same time as part of having that relationship, comes this whole thing that has to do with the byproduct of all of that which is my roommate that is into this, that, or the other.
All of that sort of thing has to be looked at, and has to be reviewed, as tangential mannerisms that carry an energetic allure like a type of excitement, but that keep one in a delusionary state. This has a meaningfulness, and you’re happy to find that there are those possibilities that exist from the general scenario in a byproduct way that can give you a sense of expansion or enhancement of the way you can feel the world.
It gives you means to fill a space with something like that in a side byproduct way. When you do that, you have a tendency to get indulged in that. And all of that is a type of emptiness – and the dream is trying to point that out. This is not an easy thing to see.
