Medicine to the Soul

tree_of_life2It’s easy to understand the problems that arise when we break a leg or sprain an ankle. But at the level of the soul, we can have similar problems caused by imbalances. And one of the key imbalances that is epidemic in life today is the relationship between the masculine and feminine aspects within a person. When these are not in sync or harmony, we find ourselves always in a state of unease, and that is magnified by the pressures of the world we live in. Still, by balancing these elements within ourselves, we can heal on an inner level – which is our best immunity from everything else.

John: In this meditation dream I am in a place in which what is going on in the setting is a melting pot of diverse activities. In other words, it’s like nobody is projecting or putting anything out on anyone. There are a lot of people or activity that’s there, but no one is laying a trip on anyone else. I mean, on one place you have maybe a livery stable, about as bland as bland can get. Who cares about a livery stable? It has a certain quietness to it. And in another area without a wall is a person who’s just busy working and building and doing something, and he is just maintaining a focus of whatever his little workshop is about.

Now all around you have this and that and this and that, and then you have people kind of coming and flowing through this that just kind of glance at this stuff and everyone that kind of comes into this area, there are no tricks played on them, everybody is left alone. Normally what you experience in life is, no matter where you go, it’s about something. Everybody has an agenda, everybody’s reaching for something, and what they’re reaching for all has to do with some aspect of themselves that’s out of balance, and so they work to try to find a balance with it in terms of whatever it is and however it is that they do things.

And it all gets down to this expansive/contractive quality of the masculine and the feminine, and to whatever degree it is off, or lacks a coming together, is the degree to which there are these projections and then there’s the lack of spatiality. And to have the proper spatiality you have to have the feminine energy that is in manifestation. You have to have that spring free. In other words, it can’t sit in an amnesia.

And then you have to have the masculine energy that has the clarity. You have to have it come together to where the clarity can make sense because it touches something, so that it can feel itself, or recognize itself, and get aligned – that has to do with the feminine quality in manifestation. When you pull these two images together and you create the completion, then you stop all of the various projections and whatnot that are going on continuously in all the different ways, and you don’t try to solve those because that isn’t what needs to be solved.

What needs to be solved is the inner and the outer coming together. And so in this dream I just see myself able to be in this place for no particular reason. These diverse activities do not interfere with each other, nor are they projected upon anyone. And there can even be bizarre activities that happened in the setting but nothing is scripted and everything is natural.

What impresses me energetically is that everything in this setting is nonchalant. In other words, there’s no established order, or intentionality, or anything behind it like you find in everything in life. In trying to explain why I like the place the only thing I can put my finger on is that the setting is neutral and natural. No one who is here has to concern themselves with having this space interfered with by some projection or another. Those who come here are able to simply hang out and not have to maintain a defense mechanism to protect themselves from intrusion or whatever, or anything being pushed at them for some reason or another. And the reason is because everyone is focused upon just being themselves and no one is paying attention to anyone else.

In other words, whatever the one thing is that needs to be done, that each person needs to be kind of contending with, that’s where their focus is at; no one is interfering with the well being of another. And this is something you rarely come across. I am drawn to this place because there is a lot of diverse energetic activity unfolding naturally that isn’t trying to affect me in a purposeful way.

This is such a rare thing for a second I don’t know what to do with myself. In other words, my synaptic nature is used to having to struggle with something, so I am so used to having to contend with being affected by something or another wherever I go, to suddenly find a place where none of that exists and you just have the melting pot of life wherever you look is uplifting and a positive revelation. I didn’t know that this could be, because that is something that you just don’t experience no matter where you find yourself. You’re always jockeying for a position or a way of being.

When the setting is like that, I am able to let go of defense mechanisms, and I am able to appreciate for no particular purpose the surroundings, and I am not nauseated with having to be sophisticated or maintaining any kind of image. This is a simplicity in which there is no care at all coming from the surroundings to interfere with my space that I am able to appreciate.

So the meaning is, to be able to be in the world and get free of its effects upon a person is liberating. It gives you the spaciousness that you need to function as opposed to always some sort of disharmony to some degree or another. I’m able to be more myself when I am able to naturally take in life as it is and nothing more. The environment is naturally at ease and quiet. As a result, I am able to appreciate the spaciousness of the setting in a healthy and free-flowing way.

This is like medicine to a soul that is used to having to contend with issues so it is always on guard against energetics. The subtler energies of life do not have a chance to come alive when a person is unable to simply be. And when they’re able to simply be, their beingness, without having to have these defense mechanisms or be on guard, is able to naturally soar into the spaciousness of all that there is. It is refreshing to note that such places can and do exist.

The purpose of the dream is to show me that when I am free, and not having to be in any particular way or contend with any particular projection, I am able to carry a spaciousness to the whole and in the whole to which all I see is embraced as an inner beauty, as an inner and outer beauty. This is possible when all is at ease and no part of my attention has to be diverted to contend with or offset the fact that something is watching and projecting upon my beingness, an interference, in other words, with my overall natural free will.
