Still the Same

cosmic-connection-Whether we are talking about our possessions, careers, family, or religion, our tendency is to always consider those relationships as outside of ourselves. Yet it is all inside of us; even our actions begin inside us, with our intentions and purposes. And we know that to have a proper relationship with anything in our lives it requires that we assemble ourselves to be a fertile ground to promote and support that relationship. We make internal adjustments to keep the connections with what we deem important. We know it’s true for the external, but it’s even more important in the energetic realms.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well in my first dream, it’s like something had fallen down from the sky into the ocean, and been down there a long time, and it’s formed this little kind of melted together glob of… it’s probably only about six or eight inches around, of different little objects that seem like they have melted together now because they’ve been underwater a long time.

So a group of us seem to be able to walk around under the ocean, and we’re gathered there and a couple of the scientific types are pointing out to me and everybody how this object is from outer space. And there’s one man who’s kind of taken possession of the object now, who’s particularly fascinated with it, and a little puffed up with having it, and pointing out this and that and how that all confirms it’s from outer space – and seems to be his at this point.

Well then along comes this scientist and he points out that one of the objects in there is a penny, and this object is not from outer space, it just looks like it does because it’s been under the ocean for a long time. And then I realize that the guy that has the object is still trying to, even though he has heard what the other person says, it seems like he’s still trying to get us to look at it as though it’s from outer space.

John: It’s an unusual dream in that it is running the dynamic of this idea of people placing their attention to something that is presumed to be beyond themselves, in other words, outside of themselves, from somewhere else.

And once you go off on a tangent like that of looking at aspects of life as being something more than what you typically comprehend, or are able to comprehend, that leads to getting into and perpetuating spiritual illusions. This is a dream I think that’s important from the standpoint that it helps one realize that, yes, something does come down and through, or so that’s the way you say it in terms of the will coming from essentially within, but it is always everywhere where you are at. And so if you go into the depths of yourself, you find that things can look different, and yet that oneness, that penny, that oneness, is still the same. So, as above, so below is always taking place and going on.

Now there’s an example of this sort of thing going on with this whole flotilla of things in a junk circle in the ocean, that goes around and around when it gets out to a certain depth, and now a lot of it is flushing ashore. And there are even boats that are going out there to anticipate some of it before it arrives on shore because there are platforms, there are all kinds of things that are coming ashore, and they don’t necessarily look like they looked when they were affected by the tsunami in Japan. They had barnacles on them and they look entirely different, and you could easily say well, gosh, that’s a boat of some sort, and hardly recognize it because it’s so full of things that have attached to it while it’s been out to sea.

And the joke is that it’s almost supporting another kind of life that is creeping up around this stuff, and now it’s washing ashore and it has the barnacles and all of that stuff on it, and so it’s easy to have a different perspective about that than what you would have had if you would have seen it when it was in place in Japan.

Yet, has anything really changed? Not really, it just depends upon your ability to see what it really is, or was, and not get caught up in the change of the image of things that your mind is inclined to do in terms of playing tricks upon you, as your imagination gets going in the same motif. You can get to a point where you could talk yourself into anything and, therefore, hold yourself back as a consequence.

heavens-golden-gatesThis dream image tells a powerful story about letting go: if we do let go, the universe will provide for us. Think about that: when we clutch tightly to our ego life, we disconnect from the universe and are truly alone. When we let go of ego and embrace universal purposes we can then become part of Its process; It will take care of our needs (as we are in service) because humans have been created to become a part of It. If we really understand this concept, we will begin to have an answer to why God “seems” to let bad things happen on this planet. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In the next dream it’s like I’ve gone out with some women friends that I know, maybe even some acquaintances of theirs. It’s like the ones I know better seem to leave except for one of the women, maybe they want to go home and the rest want to still go out.

So we run into a couple of guys and maybe another woman or two that do want to go out, and they don’t really want to go where we were, they want to go to this new place. So I tag along with them.

But first us women stop off at a restroom. Well, we go in this restroom and it’s a little odd because at one point when somebody opens the door I see how all three toilets were actually kind of built together, almost like in a semicircle, with green and blue tile as a background. And then when I go in to use them I have to find a part of a piece of toilet paper because it’s like the water has sprayed up and made the rest of the toilet paper wet. It’s just kind of an odd arrangement, but what was interesting about it was in a way I could see how it had all been constructed.

Then I go out to the counter and I realize my hair, I have longer hair in this dream, and it needs to be brushed and somebody has found all these brushes people have left behind, and washed them, and left them on the counter. So I just choose one or two that I use to brush my hair, and then leave there.

Then my friend comes up and we go out to go to the nightclub and I realize I have this longer white dress on and I have kind of a casual pink sweater over it, so I take off the sweater and that’s when they indicate they want to go to one place, not another, and I go on to the nightclub with the group.

Now, the only thing that happens after this is I just have a flash of where it’s like I go back to the very first dream and it’s been made into a movie, and I think they called it something like Badger’s End, but I’m not sure exactly about the title.

John: The thing you’re seeing in this dream, the thing that’s going on, is you start off kind of as an observer in terms of something to unfold, and the only reason for that initial input is to create the recognition that you need to let go. An observer is someone who lets go and is going along with the flow.

But you’re doing more than just going along with the flow. You’re also recognizing that there are reasons behind things, so when you go into the bathrooms you recognize that the way the stalls are constructed there are reasons behind it – but you might not understand quite why or how that is.

In other words, things are beyond your comprehension, which means water is splashed up and affected the toilet paper and whatnot, so you don’t really have the full grasp of the entire functionality smoothly worked out. But you’re letting go, which is the first aspect of the dream, you’re letting go, you’re willing to be a bit more of an observer than a person who is reactive, because if you’re reactive about stuff that just isn’t quite up to snuff, then that causes your attention to go to try to steer it this way, or that way, and you don’t see what is in flow. That is meant to be. That is there kind of in a giving way for you to catch up with, one step after the next.

And the first thing that’s given to you freely is the idea that you had this need to come out of some disheveled appearance, or to comb your hair or whatever, and the brushes are just right there. They’re given to you. They suit the need that you have.

The next thing you realize is that, as you now proceed, because you’ve let go you now proceed, you’re in a white dress with something pink on. The pink is something more in life in terms of how one gets into things in life, and the white is an aspect of purity. You’re able to take off the limitations and be able to be more in what is meant or intended in terms of a flow or connection to things that is happening.

And the fact that you can do that, this creates a story, this creates something very interesting and it’s like a movie. In other words, it’s not a movie that has you going up hill and dale and through trauma this and trauma that like a crazy soap opera. It has to do with how something is just like kind of naturally unfolding and it has a storyline to it. And the storyline that you’re catching up with is something that is wanting and meant to awaken – in terms of your being within – for you to be able to be more in terms of what and how it is that you’re meant and intended to be.

And the only little peculiarity that threw you for a kind of a spell or spill for awhile was being mystified over the appearances of the toilets and the fact that they didn’t quite… you know, they splattered water up or something and whatnot. In other words, you didn’t quite have it down yet. And then, all of a sudden, you were in sync with one sequence after the next sequence after the next sequence in which everything is just kind of coming together.

You can’t say it was a harmony; it was a naturalness. Because a harmony has something to do with trying to steer or balance something in some regard. You weren’t doing any of that. You were just kind of flashing from one realization to the next realization in terms of how something fit or unfolded. Isn’t that interesting?

Jeane: And it all had some kind of relationship to a badger.

John: Well, yeah, you’re badgering yourself. The badgering of yourself comes you know because the water splashed up and over the toilet paper and things like that, and if you would have walked around carrying that mood, or that attitude, you couldn’t have taken care of your hair that is growing. And hair represents a type of grace in a woman when it gets long, and here are the brushes and whatnot that are necessary for being able to attend to it.

And so you just naturally accept that. If you would have sat there and pondered that, just like you could have pondered the splashing up of the water on the toilet paper, you could have pondered that, and how would you have ended up in the white dress then? In other words, you would have had to make sense out of everything instead of it being part of you, under a flow of a design yourself, that is meant to be.

galaxy-0If there’s one absolute truth we can say about a spiritual or religious path, it’s that each individual must walk it on their own. Because all the information handed down through the centuries is meant to offer guideposts to keep us progressing – it can’t do the work for us. So it then becomes a matter of which path resonates best with us? And it’s our inner lives that usually give us that sense of knowing when we find it. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In the next dream, it’s like we’ve been invited to another group that gives seminars. And they have a specific way they do it, and we’ll be presenting the way that we usually do our seminars.

And so the first difference I notice is that they have a male leader, and that usually in their seminars the men really dominate and the women might add something, but they usually aren’t sitting right up front presenting the seminar. And in our group sometimes it’s the women are kind of equal, or may present; so I notice that’s different.

The other thing that’s going on is I know before I get there that someone was involved in their seminars that actually murdered someone, and was being in the midst of prosecution or something, and maybe there was somebody else involved in it that they didn’t even know that yet, maybe that hasn’t been revealed.

And at some point I’m going back and forth as they set up the seminar – we haven’t presented yet – and I’m looking at maybe how they dress versus how we dress, or the fact that they don’t have the women as much, and I run into the man that actually is the head of their organization. And it’s like he’s going to show me a few things about how they do things.

And then I ask him, does anybody there even know about this other prosecution that is going on that may involve someone in the group? And it’s like, no, they haven’t really discussed it, and I find that a bit strange.

John: So what you’re doing is you’re developing a clarity between two different activities, or flows, and, of course, you’re taking primary activities, in other words where each of those activities are primary from the standpoint that they lead to a particular end result that is destined to make a person more real or more open.

And they each have a different way, maybe, and a slightly different note in terms of doing it, but they reach a result that is out of sight, down the road, in terms of when you’re in the process. You don’t see that, but you’re going towards that, and you’re being guided towards that.

Well, whenever you too strictly follow a given Tariqa or pattern or flow, when you too strictly follow it you’re going to create collateral damage in things because no given expression or note is complete in and of itself. That’s why it’s just a note; that’s why it’s just a pattern. It’s a thread, so to speak, and there are other threads.

And so what you’re doing in the dream is this independent thing again, where you’re able to see that note, and this other note, and find the thread that helps work with the two of them. In other words, you’re not biased off to one side where you would be lost in an outcome, or confused by an outcome, that’s kind of an effect over one form of overindulgence or something of an approach.

Both of them go somewhere. The inclination is to try to ignore the one thing, to blank it out of sight and out of mind, but when you take and learn to hold a presence with yourself that includes both threads or notes, then you realize, kind of through the blend or the rub off, that that other is important, and can’t be skipped, and has to be addressed as well.

So this again is part of holding, or catching up with, or finding your own center of attunement, that isn’t getting wish-washed about based upon this approach, or that approach, too exclusively. That you’re recognizing how to maintain an equanimity with both, as you recognize that they both go to the same place.

But can, in that path, because they are notes, can have issues that come up in between, and by bringing in more of the overall equation of things you’re able to recognize how it is… because the issue that has to do with something getting hurt and whatnot, those things happen as the consequence of spiritual illusions that become natural to given notes. And they go away when you’re able to just follow a thread and not have to hold an attunement to a note as if that is the end all be all, because there are all kinds of vibrations.
