Yesterday we visited the “museum of oneself” in the dream described in Another Place Within. Here, the follow up dream continues from there to the next step in the process: bringing what is of value from the museum into the outer world. The image doesn’t show that exactly, but it’s important to see how the images connect from one dream to another, and get a sense of how the imagery moves the story along, revealing more detail of how the inner-into-outer process is meant to work in a human life. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: In the next dream I’ve driven up in this, it’s actually a convertible, with my friend Sally and we’ve driven up to a motel of some kind that’s not too far from the museum.
And we’ve gotten an room in the motel, but also it feels like the convertible, it feels like I actually spend the night out in the convertible. It seems to have whatever I need to spend the night there, and I think she spends the night in the room inside.
And then she must move on because it feels like I come back to the motel with a tall, thin guy, and he needs to spend a night or two there. In fact, I almost have the impression that I’ve gotten him out of prison somewhere, and that he’s almost like out on… he was able to get out because there’s some evidence that will come forth, maybe from the museum or somewhere, that will set him free. But he’s not quite in that free state yet, so we have to stay at the motel a night or two.
So I show him the room where Sally’s staying, which also feels like it’s my room, but I have the option of staying in the car, so I’ve gone out and now I’m studying what it was in the car that made it comfortable, or what might be Sally’s and what might be mine, although it all seems together in a way.
I’m kind of studying the car a little to see what it was that kind of made the car comfortable to stay in, as though I may stay there that night again. And then I’m also reflecting on how there is maybe some evidence in the museum that will help him get free, and kind of letting him loose to stay in the other room, too. That’s all I really could pull out of the dream.
John: Good thing I cut you off on that first part because that was important, because now the car is what, a convertible? Which is a zone between the inner and the outer. In other words, you can kind of go both places.
Well, you can kind of see a little bit, in other words, of that which is the museum, but in terms of having to go through the malaise and the bullshit of things that still has to occur in the mixing pot of the outer, or the hotel. And so you have various people – you have various components of yourself – that are advancing, that are getting on with things, but still have to go through what they have to go through.
And, in that regard, that is like you, or parts of you, components of you, that are trapped in this loci having to go through outer experiences. And yet, at the same time, because of the convertible zone and the recognition that you can be free of all of that, because there are things that can be awakened from the museum of yourself, you’re not exactly lost in the hotel. Parts of yourself are still imprisoned in that regard. However, you have something triculating in your beingness that has a semblance of resonance to the museum or, in other words, the inner.
So what you’re doing is this: with the right focus and attention, and that right focus and attention is the convertible side of yourself, you go through the experiences, or the sojourns, in the outer with other parts of yourself that have karma and whatever that you have to contend with to get caught up with, but it is a different journey in that you are burning it out. You are making yourself free of the overindulgence of that upon, I guess you would say, your unfoldment of what is able to naturally open up – which is the higher self, or the museum of it all, in which you’re intertwined.
In other words, all of those objects in a museum are interesting to you because they speak of something that is part of the whole at some point in time. When you truly go into the essence you go outside of time or space. That’s why that’s meaningful, and you can’t take it even though you feel like you can take it, then when you do all that does is kind of throw you back into the lower self again for having taken it. The reason it works that way is the soul is universal and infinite and has to be realized in that magnitude, and when you are appropriating things, or reaching for things, or trying to cause things to happen in terms of a perception of separateness as a beingness, that is when you fall back into the small mud puddle. That’s when you have to experience the hotel of it all, the hotel of it all being the hotel of the outer, in which everything is reflectively separate.
But you have this other drive capacity in you that knows the comfortability of the convertible. Con vert ible, converting, the ability to convert, the stimuli, and then the aspects of the outer, to their true essence, the inner. Or, as you infer in the dream, revealing something of the inner to the outer because that’s how it really works. That, as you look at that which is in the hotel, you realize that there is something in the museum that can be made known, or the inner can make itself known to that which is in the outer.
That’s the transmission, that’s the direction, and that’s how it works. And you are describing yourself as in this convertible zone, in this awakening zone, as opposed to the malaise of the outer. Isn’t that interesting?
