In spiritual work, we always come across the idea of awakening, which implies that we are in a sleeping state. Awakening in this sense is to begin to see the truth beyond the veils of our daily distractions and personal involvements. And when we do begin that process we see the truth is actually everywhere: in nature, in the movement of the stars, in the physical laws that determine the unfolding that we can be witness to and participant in.

John: Well, the dream, and I had this other dream of course that was just as profound and really loud, and both dreams have the same theme to them in terms of their being an inner awareness that was obvious to me, and should be obvious to others but isn’t.
And that that’s the dilemma that I find myself, in that it’s easy for me to start to see how something is so alive and aware and conscious. I mean, I actually can see these things to such a degree that I’m in a state of shock and stupor that it is not obvious and apparent to others. And so I go through this first dream, and then I see how this first dream is triggered by things that are going on in my outer environment.
And, of course, this is a dream that helps me to see how I can even tell or have a sense of how things are meant to unfold, or break down, that I see this inside. And I’m inclined to think that others should be able to grasp this readily as well. I’m not inclined to think that I have some sort of inside edge as to a sense of why something is unfolding the way that it is. I’m not inclined to think that. I’m inclined to think that if I see it everybody should see it, everybody does see it. That there’s something the matter with them, that they’re just not playing according to common sense, or they’re in a stupor or something, that they’re idiots, that they’re fools, that they’re dense, that they’re dumb.
And so even in the dream when I’m writing up the scenario I’m trying to think of a way, because it’s so darn obvious, how to bluntly jar them out of it. Because if I tell them straightaway in as clear of words as possible there is something about the mannerisms and nuances that they are going through, in terms of how they have to contend, each person has to contend with their own personal prerogative issues, it keeps them from being able to hear the vibrational note that in it has the answer of what is taking place. And even though I can go to that note, and pull that out for myself, doesn’t mean that it’s as easy as I think. This dream tends to show that.
In this dream I know that people have been deceived into thinking that they have insurance and protection from a contamination that we all must contend with. These days everyone erroneously believes that this is a thinking of the past, in other words, that we don’t have to contend with this sort of thing anymore. In other words that no one has to put up with anymore because I know that this disorder in the flow of life is still at work contaminating the unfoldment of consciousness.
I feel obligated and committed to having to wake everyone up to this other fact or mannerism that is going on. In other words, everyone is comfortable in how they are situated – as if everything is copasetic, as if everything is covered, as if everything is taken care of, much like they have an insurance and protection or something no matter how things look so that they don’t even see how it really looks. And I know that that isn’t the case.
But the literal dream was, I am able to perceive the issue by placing my hand on the top of my head and running my fingers through my hair until I have isolated a sticky substance that is there. In other words, it’s in my head. It’s just like there’s a piece of gum or something up there. I can feel something and all of a sudden I’ve got it all gobulated together and I can pull that out just like that, just pull it straight out, simple as can be.
In other words, I can get my fingers around it and pull it out if I want it. But I choose not to and I choose to leave it there for now. The reason is because I believe it is more important to use myself as an example of how we are all affected. Because I know if I were to simply pull it out and then I would just say this, where’s the proof, where’s the evidence. I just extracted it, so what? It worked for me, but how about everybody else? In other words, there wouldn’t be any evidence to prove the existence of such a thing that I can be talking about.
As a consequence I know it’s going to be hard enough as it is using myself as the example, and I certainly would be really far estranged if I took and I dealt with it and then came back and tried to tell somebody after the fact. They have to be more literally connected.
So to bring people out of their trance, even when I have the hard evidence right at my fingertips, what I have to do, and what this image is doing is it goes to show how lost and confused nearly everyone is these days when something so completely obvious as a fact has to be pointed out to them in order for them to be able to comprehend it. I can’t just tell them because they’re not going to get it. What this means is it’s a sad testament to the sorry state of unconsciousness that permeates throughout all of life.
And the meaning is everyone is so caught up in deviations and misalignments that they have forgotten how it is to function consciously. Even when the situation is so obvious that it no longer is possible to describe it any clearer I am finding that, even then, the average person has gotten to the point that they are no longer able to think or comprehend ordinary English or read the writing on the wall.
By that I mean, when something is handwritten upon the wall this is a slogan or a saying in which the implication is that it is so obvious that there should be no need to say anymore. Yet even then, very few are capable of stepping back from whatever it is that’s preoccupying their limited attention and catching up with the common sense.
