With the world the way is, it’s hard to believe that we each have a special gift and purpose in this life. Yet we all have certain things we are passionate about, and certain capabilities, and a certain view and way of experiencing life that is valuable in its uniqueness. To understand how special we really are is to understand it from the perspective of the universe, which has created us to become a reflection of its possibility. Through us, it discovers itself.

Jeane: The alarm this morning somewhat startled me, so it feels like the dream just kind of popped out. But I remember that I was discussing with somebody, almost like an issue of discernment in a sense, about making decisions on which activities you engaged in – based on whether or not they either added to, or didn’t conflict with what your main job was.
It seems to me like there was some kind of discussion like that that had to do with a certain kind of discernment. It was like you could do something that didn’t have to be directly related to the job, but it had to not, in a sense, take something away from it.
But I don’t remember the rest of the images, or what the dream looked like unless it comes back.
John: Each person has a responsibility in terms of how they’re meant to unfold, in terms of how they’re supposed to approach life. And, of course, that’s a reflective approach.
And if you try to approach or do work with life in a way that isn’t in character with how it is, or who you are, because you don’t like the reflections or something, or whatever reason, then you’re not being in tune with how it is that you can be lined up and entwined with the inner.
Because the inner is designed to unfold for each person, each person is designed in a particular way so that the inner unfolds in that person in a particular way, too. And the way that you rapport with the outer in cohesion is a correspondence to how it is that you’re meant to unfold in terms of the innerness of your nature.
And so you don’t go and suddenly decide you’re going to completely change how it is that you’re approaching life because you don’t like something, or you get to a point where you recognize that it’s all kind of meaningless, and therefore you take on a new motif. That would be trying to do something spiritual, and it won’t work that way.
So in your dream you’re dreaming something like that. As to whether or not you should consider some other alternative because you were getting out of whack, or uneasy, with how something was unfolding. And it’s almost like you can get too smart for yourself. You can know better. You need to know better to work through the conditions and the scenario that you’re in. It’s not advantageous to take and act like things are greener on the other side of the fence in some other scenario, because you have to be yourself.
You have to be true to yourself. You have to go through what you have to go through, and each person is given their own lot. It’s something that they can figure out, and that they can deal with – and it’s just the way it is.
