A Part of Creation

Laura Sotka 2008It’s probably one of the oldest misconceptions in spirituality or religion: that you can rise above the world into a state of holiness and everything will be okay. In fact, the only way to get to a high spiritual state is to go through the lower, physical realms. That’s why we’re here, on a planet and in a body, in the first place. Creation wants what is sacred to be brought down to this little place in a far corner of the universe. Animals can’t assist in that process – only humans can. It’s part of our design.

Jeane: The last dream, I’m not quite sure exactly how it starts. It feels like I’m kind of hanging out with two old coots, and then I have a young boy with me that’s kind of at that age where he still kind of clings to you a little bit.

I don’t know what’s happened, but I’ve gotten separated from the men and they’re across the way from me. And I can’t really believe it, but one of them has taken out a gun and he’s going to shoot at us, at me and the little boy. So I feel like I have to get us to some place safe. And I look around. I go around the corner where they can’t see me, and I have some options of going up or down at that point. And I decide I will take the little boy and go up, because it’s illogical. You know, people expect you to run down and out of a building, so I think that way we’ll be concealed.

So I run up and I go up, it’s kind of a concrete building, but I go up like two stories and I go into an administrative office there. Within the office, for some reason, there’s a partition that goes up a little further. And I go up and I hide behind that partition. If I kind of lay down on the concrete—it’s kind of a concrete partition, but if I kind of lay down on it, just above the lip of it or something, then the boy and I can be concealed.

Well, there’s some men up there in that office, and one of them says we can’t hide there. They don’t want us to bring anybody in there that might be shooting or anything, and if we get shot that’s just our problem. Then I look down and I realize the boy isn’t there, so I have to go find him anyway.

So I start walking down and I kind of glare at the one guy that said that, you know, he’s going to just throw us to the wolves, kind of. And I looked at him and said, you know, I can’t do anything like I can’t stay there if he won’t let us, I said. On the other hand I can certainly publicize what he did. And he gets this alarmed look on his face because he’s one of those people that, you know, thinks he gets away with everything. I’m going to publicize it. I’m really pissed. You don’t throw a woman and a little kid out to the wolves, so to speak. But meanwhile my main thing is to find the little boy.

I’m really angry though. Then I go around the corner, and then I come to a door. When I reach to pull the door open, it’s like the two guys, the one that was shooting there, the two guys that were together that I’d originally come in with and one even that were shooting at me, they’re behind the door with the little boy. I pull the door open. They’re looking sheepish. They weren’t really going to shoot us, right?

Meanwhile, I just grab the boy who’s been upset by all of this, you know, and I’m kind of hugging him, or he’s hugging and grabbing a hold of me, and I’m looking at the two old coots. I’m pretty disgusted with the whole scene. I’m thinking that maybe from now on I’ll just hang around with gay men. I think that was when I woke up.

John: So this dream is challenging a concept, a spiritual concept, that one develops – even though one’s heard that it doesn’t work this way over and over and over and over and over again. And that is that you can’t escape through some sort of transcendent realization of yourself. And a transcendent realization is where you try to climb a Tower of Babel, or understanding of things.

So, if you’re trying to escape going up, it’s not going to work. And it’s as if you don’t belong up there. It’s quickly pointed out, you know, that you don’t belong up there. And so you have this concept, of course, that, how can you be denied? You know, a woman and a boy and whatnot, how can you be denied? But the little boy of yourself knows that it needs to be down lower, too.

It’s the feminine needing its security that seems to think that it can go that way, but as soon as you were doing that, I knew that that was no security. There’s no security that way. The security is that you’re part of creation, and you wake everything up, and open everything up in creation.

So when you go back down and you’re on the plane of creation, and you’re working from the plane of creation, creation can’t be eliminated. You get away from that and you could be in trouble.

But as you come back down into creation, as you’re going into the depths of yourself again, back into who and how you actually are that in an aspect of creation. A wholeness in and of creation. In other words, the creator’s creation. You can’t be hurt.

You can only be hurt if you take and don’t know that, and try to stay separate from that; then you can be hurt.

And so the alarms that you have over things turns out to be, well, just kind of like false alarms. You can’t be touched when you’re rooted enough.

And also one of the things that will root you is a certain passion. You know, the quality of having to extend something towards something, towards the masculine and into a protectorate of giving it into quality. Bringing it. Maintaining it. Sustaining it in the quality of the environment of creation.

And you can’t be denied that, or otherwise creation would be obliterated. No one really wants to obliterate the environment that they’re in. They may be doing it out of foolishness, but they don’t really want to obliterate themselves, too, which is what would happen.

So when you come down, you confront the ignorance, so to speak, and it has to yield. And that’s what it’s like to go into the depth of yourself, too. That sort of stuff has to fall away when you experience the depth of yourself.

But it’s a good dream about not getting caught up in the idea that you have to be protected, and you have to catch up with some sort of transcendent recognition, or something. That you’re just fine just the way you are.
