In this imagery, we can get a good sense of how we are all the characters in our dreams. Here John has hitched a ride with two male strangers who seem to be ambling about aimlessly in life. He, on the other hand, has a destination ahead. As we move forward on our development journey, we will always be struggling with inner lives that want to detour us from our destination. That’s when we need to keep the greater clarity of why we are doing what we are doing. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: What I am noticing, and it really got accentuated again, is that you have to really stay quiet, because I am noticing I’m getting more and more affected by the little energetics around. And maybe because one gets more along on the path you do get more affected if you’re not careful.
But I can always hear that sound, the vibration inside, and if I focus on that, that’s when I go somewhere and this time I realized that whatever energetic you’re feeling, because we were dreaming about these energetics and then how they take and keep things from just dissipating, or going into an emptiness. But if you just listen and allow yourself to be swept up by that vibration in the universe, or sound of the universe, that whatever it is that you had been holding onto will go away. And when it goes away, you find yourself actually in the emptiness.
Now, you can have dreams in the emptiness that correspond to things. Well, first of all the one that I remember, that I didn’t write up, was that I had apparently caught a ride with these guys, because where I was at was a long, long ways away from where I needed to be. And they just seemed to be people that were ambling about in life with no real aim, but that’s how I came to see them, and that’s how they kind of introduced themselves to me at the end. Things just were not coming together for them, as they were just ambling about in life.
And I caught a ride with them, trying to go from one area across to kind of towards the university on the other side, and they were driving along the peak of a top of a mountain and at one point they have stopped and one guy needed to show another this kind of stuff that you could see at the top there. And the car even wasn’t even property turned off, and fortunately I got it so it didn’t move forward too much, and realized that they didn’t know where it was that I was going. I kind of knew, and I could probably walk from here because at least I was more than halfway there. And I had in my memory made these long walks before without catching a ride.
So, I go back to dig out my bag in the back, and one of them is back there, and the next thing you know I can tell that I’m in trouble: they’re probably going to beat me up and rob me and whatnot because, for whatever particular reason, that’s just kind of the state they were in, in a state of kind of a confusion where nothing is really coming together for them. And it looked like, I suppose, that I was someone that they could take advantage of. And I woke up before I got beat up and robbed.
But the essence of that dream was that whatever it is that I’m doing, I have to make sure that I am… the key is to hold on to a clarity in terms of what’s unfolding, a vibration behind what’s unfolding in terms of whatever it is that you’re doing. And if you don’t, and if you’re trying to take and pursue something, or make something happen, or have your attention in some way where you’re being affected by things that throw you into a peculiar reality, that the way I’m evolving in terms of things opening up and having a meaning, and a meaning that has to be tied to an emptiness – if I don’t do that, then I am asking for trouble. I’m asking to eventually get really seriously whacked, or smashed around, because I know better. I now know that I have to hold onto whatever it is that I do, I have to hold onto the silence behind that. That was the dream I had.
