A spiritual journey can be looked at in this way: we move our center of attention from our lower self, i.e., our physical focus, with eating, procreation, and life maintenance, to our higher self, where we begin to access the connections, knowings, and enhancements that are energetically available to us. It is an incremental process that begins with the desire to fulfill the design and promise of our human incarnation. We can see how everything in the natural world has a role to play in the life of the planet; it can be no different for the human, except we also have a role within the unfolding of the universe.

John: My dream dealt with the sensation of deprivation. And this is the condition in which you deem that something you feel to be important is missing.
If a monitor would have been attached to me, what it would have revealed would have been reflectively significant. The feeling that I was not receiving what I dreamed to be important resulted in a mannerism to some sensation, thus I made it seem real. I shortened my breath. In doing this, I deprived myself of the usual oxygen to the system. This created the dream sensation of being deprived. I could report this dream and its condition as a parallel reflection of that which is going on in my environment, and that also has an effect upon me externally.
In this way, a human being is a creature of his outer reflective reality. A human being mirrors this condition, in other words, reflects this condition. Actually you mirror the truth outside of this, but you reflect the condition, a condition that he created when the outer unfoldment swept up his consciousness. In the same vernacular, a human being is able to reach the depths of their beingness to exude, or access, an energetic higher-self knowingness. This is the mirror, unto the outer environment, in which the inner flow’s focus and attention is attentive to the inner spirit energy flow.
In other words, this again removes you from the densities of the senses in terms of objects. This occurs when an inner depth of beingness, called the higher-self plane, accesses the awakened inner state and is no longer under the dense outer clutches of the collective outer consciousness. In other words, the object is to get outside of a state in which the spirit energy is trapped in matter and asleep. And when it’s like that, that’s when you see the objects in matter and stuff that’s trapped. You see that instead.
What I am describing infers a process in which a human being that is inextricably intertwined with the environment is so much more when the higher self awakens. Until then, there is mayhem, and stress, and outer bewilderment – both actual and imagined. The human being cannot experience the hidden inner essence while in this state. The reflective amnesia is simulated and the breath is the witness.
In other words, you get short and then you could deprive yourself of oxygen. In other words, it’s not all there. The spirit energy is choked off. Similarly, when a human being believes everything is wonderful, in their outer life, they reflect this to be so with the breath. Often times this isn’t the case and, if the human being had been unconscious, they would know that by coming in touch with the awakened spirit energy of the universal soul.
When things are given to a person, for example, where things seem to work out, where the teacher smiles because things are given to them, that’s this condition in which you don’t even have the echo of what is wrong and, therefore, you can be in this unconscious state in which it appears to work out.
The point I am making is that a human being is a creature of his conscious and unconscious environment, and it can change when the inner spirit energy is awakened simultaneously upon the inner into outer level. To be awakened is to awaken the higher self and be a force of nature capable, as the crown of creation, to change the story. This isn’t possible if the person is caught up in the magnetic densities of the collective outer.
A human being has to become empty in order to access the inner essence and its innocent nothingness. This is not easy to do because of the magnetic gravity effect that predominates over creation. This density effect causes a collective atmosphere to predominate. The magnetic gravity is what causes matter to constellate and duality to appear to exist. Nothing would exist in creation, i.e. planet Earth, if there was no atmosphere, a direct result of gravity. The empty space is a universe in which the prevailing space is limitless and experienced as a nothingness.
This empty space is alive, and we are that, except in manifestation where we are under the spell and in the clutches of the illusion of matter – a condition caused when gravity predominates. Matter is a density in which the spirit energy is unconsciously imbedded, thereby causing reflective appearances to predominate outwardly.
To live in this state is to only be conscious of the lower self and not have direct access. I mean, it’s not only because you always have some degree of higher self, but it’s primarily conscious of the lower self, and thereby lacking the access to the essence of one’s being, i.e. the higher self. So that’s the first dream.
