We trust that the sun will rise tomorrow, or that the earth will rotate, we trust there will be seasons again, and we trust that the planet won’t suddenly fall through space. We trust these things, and we have no control over them. But somehow we don’t trust the intelligence that keeps those things doing what they do, to play a part in the unfolding of our lives. Somehow, we are the best judge of that. To be in a state of oneness, or in the flow of life, means to put our own lives into the trust of the universe.

John: In my dreaming I start off showing, and revealing, that in the meditation in the unfoldment that one is able to come to grips with inside of themselves, that I am gaining an understanding of something in some capacity. And I’m inclined to view this capacity as somewhat of an edge, and even see myself as having a freedom in terms of this edge.
How it is able to work is yet a whole other thing, and this is what I dream about. And that’s how I know that this has to do with an unfoldment that is based upon staying and keeping to the natural, not trying to know every little nuance and mannerism such in life – as if that’s possible, and that that is going to give one the answer. Because there’s such a greater scope in terms of the way everything is intertwined and unfolding that you can catch up with what is natural, but you can’t pin it down.
To start off with, in my meditation dream, I notice that I am able to work with an energetic expansiveness. And the more I am able to take on and ground the expansive innerness, the more stable and composed I am able to be in manifestation. In other words, just grounding it. In other words, this is actually a part of figuring out how to be natural, but I don’t see it that way. I’m still trying to figure it out and control it.
So as I master the whole and its corresponding counterbalance in the physical, well then what happens is I develop an awakened shift. I come in touch with the innerness as kind of an awakened consciousness. What is going on is I am able to relate to the inner, and its corresponding outer reflections in manifestation, with a greater and greater ease. In other words, learning how to be natural in that, and I am able to notice that each aspect in the outer, as it comes before me, and I am able to slingshot to the inner flow which is coming into manifestation.
I’m able to tweak the external situations, by way of feeling the inner flow, and thereby able to notice and carry an ease that is able to relate to the inner flow as a greater wholeness. The net effect of an awakened inner/outer, or outer/inner, awareness is that I am able to shift specific outer reflections with ease. Instead of being veiled by a domain of reflections, I come instead into a greater inner light body beingness. I am more and more balanced in taking the outer reflections to the inner flow in a quicker and quicker way.
In other words, as one gains more of the access to the inner, you don’t get caught up and held in trance by the outer as much. What I’m doing is trying to define the systems if one can capture it. Consequently, I now see that the reflective capacities in manifestation are inextricably intertwined to the inner flow of life.
As a side note, I am becoming more and more able to take the effect of an outer reflection and, in seeing through it, put my finger so to speak more and more directly upon the inner places therein. Now one does this not with their mind; they do this with their naturalness.
And the meaning is, I’m describing this process as an awakening to an intertwined inner aliveness. The awakening is normally veiled by reflective indulgences; in order to be real, the reflective indulgences need the awakening of an inner intertwined alignment – and that’s what makes them alive, or meaningful.
So basically, if you looked at this in the large expanse again, this aliveness works in two ways. Basically they’re one in the same, but it can kind of be said as in two ways, and it is imaged or depicted by the statement: light coming down to touch light, as if light is an access and a knowingness, and light rising up to touch light, which is something in creation or manifestation. Based upon how it is reflecting, one is able to see something more in that, so that’s like a light rising up to touch light – in terms of how things happen in manifestation.
