An Enhanced Recognition

poster4a.jpgIt goes hand in hand with a spiritual journey that, at some point, we students of a chosen path also become its teachers. Yet teacher here doesn’t mean in the sense of just passing along facts and information, but in the sense of being a teacher of the human race by what radiates out from one’s alignments and knowings. A spiritual path raises one’s energetic connections into one’s higher-self, and that gives those connections access to others, through our lives, which is a rare and high service.

Jeane: So in my main dream it feels like I work at a school, more in like the administrative offices or something, but I also as a student take some classes there. And I really could get out of there fairly soon, but I realize that there are certain classic books and things that I can actually share with some of the students there, and it makes something about education really fun.

It’s like if there are certain classic books, a certain number of them or something that you can share with the students so I, rather than maybe get out as soon as I could or leave the school as soon as I can, it’s kind of out in the country, there’s something about the pleasure of sharing the books that makes me feel like I’ll stay there a little bit longer. And then as a different part of the dream, it’s like I’m also working in the offices.

John: Yeah. So, what you’re doing is you’re portraying the parameters of life that you have taken on, or been presented with, as your format, as your frame of reference, to that which exists.

In other words, this is your schematic, so to speak, to have to embrace, and what you have to handle as the overall life that is placed on your plate. So, to handle that, or to be conscious with it, or to unfold with that, you have to cause this whole overall to be brought through to all parts of yourself or, as a way of saying it, to everything else that is an aliveness in creation.

There’s a deep-seated principle in terms of it having to work this way because you have made the step, in terms of some sort of acceptance and understanding, that in order to become more conscious that you have to hand this out, or in other words, this has to be taken in or made known and available to… not so much as a me, myself, and I consideration, but as a flow that involves others.

You’re covering a very deep-seated theme in that there comes a time when for you to become more conscious that you have to take on the role of being in a position in which this exudes, or is handed out, to others. You can only go so far in terms of working upon the mannerisms of yourself in terms of alignment. Once they have reached a particular point, in order for that then to unfold further, you have to take those parameters – which you have the parameters in both ends of the dream, in other words, you’re both the administrator or in other words the guide and the teacher, and at the other end you’re the framework, or the first step in terms of holding something in place, thus making you a servant and student to what there is that needs to be made conscious and known at school – and school being life.

So the two parameters you’ve established is the bracketing in of the schematic of the overall, and in the middle is the process upon which something exudes, or extends, or takes place within these parameters, that goes out and into making something better, or more conscious in terms of the overall, or in terms of others, meaning students, that can partake of a spatiality that is there in which they can grow and come and become more conscious.

And the process, in terms of this happening, that is an enhanced recognition and conscious growth for you, for yourself, is the process that you now have an attention upon, that you make possible. And as you make it possible, as you work out whatever it takes for it to become more possible, that is how you become more conscious.

You might say this all falls under a general overall quality in which you are everything in life, and that as everything in life, you need to come to know that, and your way of coming to know that is to start to see the components of yourself, and the importance of yourself, in an intertwined capacity in terms of others.

See how that dream was? Could you feel that? Could you get the sense of it, you established the parameters and then you worked with those that were in the scenario, and in that scenario you were the student, and as a consequence of being the student that was the framework for something to become more conscious.

A Basic Flow

670.jpgIn this series of images, John is being shown different aspects of the same issue. To be in the flow with life and the universe is a connection we make gradually. It doesn’t happen by flipping a switch or by making dramatic changes, it happens through a moment by moment letting go of what prevents us from our natural connections. It happens by letting go of our personal involvements, and by letting go of the idea that if we try harder and do more we’ll get there. The flow is a natural state, but we have become unnatural in this world. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: And so this part is I’m looking about at what I need for groceries. Generally I do not pay any attention to that sort of thing, and let it just naturally unfold. In other words, you just go and get the groceries, I don’t pay any attention to that.

Well, apparently, there must have been some little nuances percolating beneath the surface, as I point out something you wouldn’t have ordinarily thought us as needing. And when I do this, what happened is you suddenly got excited or animated about it that and started acting really grateful that that got pointed out, thanking me profusely for pointing out what had been an oversight.

The meaning is we don’t mean to take on airs, traits, and patterns and unfulfilling abstractions which veil us from our true inner need. To be able to see what we have done to ourself – and reacquaint to that which is divine – is to be at the heart of our nature. We are ever grateful each time that is able to be. There can be long stretches of time when we are cut off from that as we pursue some tangent, or idea, or pattern, or whatever that carries a demeanor or some motif that veils us from our inner need.

So in this dream, I get a newfound sense of this new place I am in. In the image I see a dresser that was part of, or came with, the condo. And I am of the impression that this is the heaviest piece of furniture in the bedroom. The thought comes up: maybe I should move it. This is followed by the question, as if you are even raising the question, why?

My response to this dialogue is, why do I need to do anything? In other words, it’s like I’m even responding to my own question, and saying why do I need to do anything? The thing is serving its purpose in sitting there. It’s not affecting anything one way or the other, so why do I need to go off on some unwarranted tangent?

In other words, this dresser is just a part of me. It is just a part of the space, the overall space. And, yes, it’s heavy, yes, it’s like a type of burden or something that has to be carried, but it also serves its own purpose. I don’t need to dwell upon it. I just need to let it be, just go about other things. It is what it is.

The meaning is, there are things given to me that are natural to my nature that I can identify to if I seek to overly do that, overly direct my attention, in terms of how it is that I am put together in manifestation. In other words, this dresser is just a part of how it is. I don’t need to get into the nuances of it. That’s where you get into the mind going off and off and off and off. I mean, it just doesn’t know how to settle with its own base. I just need to leave certain things be and allow myself to remain open to life.

In this dream, it’s like I’m in an area where there are computers for rent, and there are like three or four of them in a line up. There’s a guy to my left. I’m on a computer, and then I guess there’s an empty computer to my right, and then there’s a person on that right there that seems to be observing, from maybe the other side of that computer. And then there’s a person on my right that comes up.

Well, I’m at a computer looking things up when this person, and it’s kind of like in a type of library, comes up to me seeking my guidance and help. I explain to him what is possible, in other words, the options. I explain to him the options and, in an effort to get him oriented because I need to know what it is in terms of guidance that he seeks, but he can’t seem to tell me.

By going over the options to try to see and better understand what it is he wants, or where this goes, I’m getting frustrated because it doesn’t seem to generate a response from him that helps. Meanwhile, I have a lot to sort out on my plate at the computer, and everything in front of me is a mess, and so I’m at a kind of inner crisis seeking to figure out what I’m doing.

Suddenly I realize that he doesn’t know how to respond, but I realize he needs to start with the basics. and then one will see where that goes. And then I’m also realizing that the way I’m acting, in terms of this frustration inside, is unacceptable because that’s this other person that’s on the other side that seems to be there listening. And he can see my terse conversation where I’m jerking and jabbing at this guy to try to get him to be a little more forthright. And he feels I am being rough with him because I am not getting the response from him that would give me an idea of how and what he needs for direction.

So, from all of this I realized I just need to get him in a flow. So I take out a disk that will open up the system. I tell him he needs to go and reserve the open computer next to me. I will put this disk in and this will enable him to do the basics, things that will not require a lot of complexity, because I kept looking at this and trying to actually overanalyze it in terms of its complexity, but basically he doesn’t even understand the basics. The regular flow is sufficient. If he could just do that, that’s enough. And so I finally realize, aha, well let’s do that and see where it goes, and then what more might be required one will contend with that then.

So this dream portrays as a meaning a shift of my attention to a part of myself opening up for the first time, or again even, or as a step back even, that still isn’t able to identify its need succinctly. It’s like a human being never ever can really know what’s going on, so you identify and come to know it as a type of infusion of the soul. This is on the path of understanding the soul.

The heart works to a certain degree, then comes the soul. In other words, like I said: first you understand the mind, you understand the heart, it’s a whole other thing to understand the soul. When I am in such a condition I just need to keep it simple and stay basic. Work with the level of the heart that trips into, then, the infused understanding of the soul. Nothing more really needs to evolve; in other words, you don’t get into the complication of it and try to change, or do something, because just the basic flow is going to take all my attention for the foreseeable future.

And then the deeper aspect meaning is I tend to act as if I’m put out and peeved when confronted with a shift and change. It would be nice if I could be more fluid and natural. To do that, I have to get out of the way and let go of preconceived notions. So, the unfoldment inside of me is something percolating, trying to find its way. This is portrayed by the person asking me to help him get set up so that he can find what there is to the need and flow which is before him.

There also is an appearance demeanor, too, that’s involved here which has to do with the guy that’s looking at me carrying on like I am with this guy, being rough with him because he can’t specifically state what it is that he seeks to try to do. And, initially, I’m jumping over the top thinking and wanting something that’s way more complicated than needs to be. What needs to be is just this basic flow, and then see where that goes, and what evolves from that. So that was an interesting dream.

Inner Beauty

c5b4.jpgWe often marvel at how difficult it can be to make changes in ourselves. And what we don’t take into account are the aspects of us that don’t want to change, or the aspects of us that are so used to operating in certain ways that they actually seem to sabotage our efforts. The problem isn’t with our systems, it’s with what we have trained in our systems, i.e., our systems are designed to take up what we repetitively show it is of importance to us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in my dream I’m going through a kind of familiar theme of being aware that what I am doing outwardly is affected by how something is moving and affecting me from within.

So I don’t wake up and write up the dream because in my sleep I didn’t see this to be that memorable. In other words, it’s such a contrast. In other words, something is in the outer and that is what it is, but it’s because of this motion inside – so what’s there to write up about this motion inside? I mean it’s kind of ridiculous to write up the commotion on the outside, or so that must have been my opinion in my meditation, and so I held back from this and I noticed that I couldn’t take myself so seriously, or take on in some self-important mannerism, and let go and left it at that.

What I mean is, I couldn’t take myself so seriously because I felt I was under the influence of this inner unfoldment so there was nothing in my actions in the outer that were unique or memorable and, of course, in this case the actions in the outer is the dream. And so there’s nothing memorable about the dream because behind that was the vibration of what was important, that was the inner unfoldment.

So noticing this as strongly as I did in my dream stripped out the drama and the self-indulgence seriousness of how I would have been ordinarily taking myself, so that in my opinion at the time my actions, which was basically the dream, and of course because the dream is associated as if kind of like a derivative of the energetic flow from within, the dream then seemed insignificant and nothing more than a form of outer reflection to this inner unfoldment.

This is like a repeat dream. I’ve been having this sensation a number of times where on one level it’s kind of hard to cop to the outer dream because behind that is the whole sense of the inner dynamic moving and shifting around.

And so in my dream, I recall having a close call accident that is still on my mind. This is from when I went to sleep. This is an energetic that has a vibratory presence that is still in the ether, in other words something close that could have almost happened but didn’t.

So that first part of my meditation dream was good, and then I see myself connecting within to that which is free from the outer effect limitations that had been weighing me down. This is similar to what I just went through, the first part, my meditation dream. This is still repeating, that’s why it looks this similar.

I just want to reside in this and see where it goes. In other words, this time the step I’m taking forward is instead of trying to write it up and realizing that there’s nothing to write up in terms of the dream because the vibration behind it is what it’s about. What’s changed in this is now I just want to reside in that vibration. In the past this was always affected and opposed energetic by competing energetic forces that presented their interest to contend with – meaning the dreams that would come in that would be the symbolic in-between.

And these were competing energetics from kind of a lower-self nature. In other words, it went through and had to go through the synapses and the mind mentalness of one’s being. And I was subjected to a lot of painful suffering from this. But last night I settled into the vibratory moving in my heart and noticed its wonderful spaciousness.

In one image I looked in the rearview mirror of the vehicle, in other words like one’s looking for a dream or whatnot; normally there’d be a vibration of a dream, so I look around like looking in a rearview mirror of the vehicle I am driving, and noticed I was able to dance and rejoice within because there’s nothing behind me. There’s nothing pressing me. Way back in the rearview mirror what had been following me more closely, and putting pressure upon me, had dropped so far back and it had even stopped and it had its turn signal on and was turning off.

So I was left with the wonderful feeling of simply appreciating and rejoicing in the immersion of myself in an inner energetic that was gushing over. I laid back rather than write this up to take in more of this wondrousness. I guess I felt that I would have more to report by settling back because I’m so used to it then having some sort of dream element, too, so what more could report by settling back into the vibration to see what there was to come up next.

The observation of this is I hope I can handle the wondrous feeling. It is something to behold. My only criticism is that I am not really sure that I won’t get haunted by something or another again, although last night I was able to enjoy the reprieve. My synapses may still clamor from mayhem. I may still have to contend with the haunting nature in which my outer nature has me deceived, yet thinking I am going to be bored if I am not pressed by animosities, restrictions, reactions, and other longstanding conditioning that is a form of attachment.

In other words, this state it just is, and this other that has been around for so long, if it weren’t there I might actually act like I’m bored. I need a certain degree of pain or something. That’s a strange observation right?

The reason for the dream is to see if I can appreciate the inner beauty from within, or if I still need to churn up pent up and suppressed conditioning and synaptic nuances to haunt me on a personal level. The meaning is, is I am seeing myself coming into an inner beingness that I can just emerge myself into and, in doing so, not be harried or oppressed by deniability characteristics which consume the heartfulness. That’s the meditation dream.
