A Connective Association

total-self-6It seems we often consider ourselves as a brain set atop a body. But that’s far from the truth. In actuality, we are a complex and multifaceted system that supplies information and intelligence to us in many forms. Unfortunately, we have become so enamored of our brain that it often gets the final say in all our decisions. But what about our heart and intuition, which utilizes faster and more subtle processes than the brain? When we disconnect from those aspects of ourselves, we disconnect from everything.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So the earliest dream I had it seems like it almost takes place in earlier times, like when people rode on horses and such. And it feels like it’s in England, or someplace like that, and everyone in the dream seems to be about in their 30s.

And another woman and I have gone to visit this man we know who has an estate, and then he has a friend, another man about the same age, who has an estate just a short distance away. They’re just old time estates like you would see in England where people have like a country home, or a place where they live in the country that’s kind of majestic.

It feels like I’m trying to make a decision about a relationship with one man or the other, and I decide to go explore the estate of the second man, the one who lives a little further away from where we’re staying. And I go there and it feels like I get information from the servants and that kind of tells me what direction to go – and then I go back to the original place I’m staying.

I’ve kind of made up my mind which relationship I want to explore, or which one I’m not interested in, but I don’t really let anybody know what my decision is. In fact, I even kind of misdirect.

It was hard for me to even remember any of this dream because the other one was louder, but I just got a sense from the servants and having visited the second estate of who the person was.

John: The theme of the dreaming has to do with an identification that we’re able to make inside in terms of how something is meaningful, in terms of how it touches the heart, and that we need to learn to listen in terms of that to recognize how that guides, and how that points, and how that steers an attention that comes from within – that may not necessarily go along, and generally doesn’t go along, with our mental ideas.

Usually our mental ideas understand some semblance of it, but still get in the way of this kind of intertwined connection. And that this is a heart-quality connection in terms of being able to recognize, to come into connective association with, that which flows, which links, to a quality of the heart as that quality of the heart needs to be experienced, and is designed to experience in life. In other words, we tend to think that what we’re doing is based upon we come up with prescribed and designed mental ideas that we then focus out, and we sort out, in relationship to our conceptions and perceptions. We tend to think that this is how we go about in life.

We don’t realize that really, underneath all of that, deeper than all of that, that we don’t give credit to, as the underlying controlling force from within, this heartfelt vibration in the heart that knows whether something feels right, is right. And this has to do with where one chooses to, in terms of the choices that one makes, in terms of where they go for a vacation, or the kind of job that they get, or where they choose to live, or whether they would like to do this, or that, the next day. These are all sensations that have to do with the way the heart undulates about and tries to feel the overall space.

And, of course, that has to come into contention with the perceptions that are mental in orientation, as to, well, this makes more sense than that, and this benefits us better than that will benefit us, and these kind of mannerisms detract, confuse that connectivity, that intertwined connectivity. And a human being is inclined to give credence to those kinds of thoughts because it’s so easy to take and twist and turn those kinds of thoughts and find that they make sense logically, or rationally, but not necessarily to the heart, only to the head. And a person who adheres to that is adhering to the outer, and not hearing and not recognizing the inner that lies within.
