If we can agree on the idea that the universe is refining, that it is in a process of doing “something,” then we can project forward and see that at the end of the process everything would come back together – with the gained experience of the process itself. And that’s the way it should work for humans, as well, for as we develop and refine we want to include more and more of ourselves in it. This is how the “as above, so below” concept applies, because we each follow the same processes as the universe – just in a smaller outplay.

Jeane: I really just remember one of my dreams. In this dream it’s like I’m a therapist, and I’ve gone back to work at an office. I’m going to be conducting some group therapy, and some people that are going to come to the group are talking to me first, and they’re actually people that work in a therapy office, but it’s the main office which is in another building over from where I work.
So I’m speaking to them for a few minutes beforehand, and then I’m helping them, showing them to go in and sit down in the group. Well, it’s kind of an odd group in that it’s almost shaped more like an eight, you know, like two circles that are joining rather than just one circle. So I’m focused on the circle right in front of me. The other circle almost at times seems slightly invisible, and I keep thinking somebody else must be running the therapy there because I’m focused on the woman in front of me.
And I realize that because they worked in a therapy office then they’re going to know some of the therapists personally. I’m trying to tell them they’re going to have to separate that out in a way, when they’re in therapy, that what goes on in a therapist’s private life really doesn’t reflect how the therapist might be, in terms of their ability to help others. So their focus has to be a little bit more outward into the group and, you know, maybe not into what they hear in the office on a personal level. That’s about all I remember of that dream.
John: The reflective pattern of how we’re made up is such that when you go through something, let’s say that you lived or conducted yourself in an outer mannerism, and this is how you had to live, and how you had to go through things, and how you had to pay the price of admission of a quality and manner of unfoldment that took, you know, a lifetime even to gain an understanding, and then a deeper inner appreciation that was apparently needed to be reached in this fashion or way.
You come to a point, however, and each of us comes to the same point where you have to kind of go back into what it was that you did, the energy that you did. In other words, you’ve come down, and let’s say you’ve retired from it, and then you have to go back into it.
The first thing you have to contend with when you go back into the energy is whether you still have the addiction to things that drew you into making those kinds of outward expressions and unfoldments, in terms of yourself, in the past. Usually, when you go back into it you find out that you have lived it, you’ve done that, you’ve let go of that. It doesn’t have its hold upon you anymore.
However, when you go back into it, and you go back and you look at it, you may have freed up kind of a main inner power and focus of yourself, but you will find that there are other components, in your case there were the other therapists or something, there are other aspects in which there is still some adab or something that is necessary in order for that to be aligned, in terms of you, as a process of unfoldment.
Because when you go back into that, those other parts are parts of you. This is like kind of, you might say, a quality in which there are the similitude components that kind of live, or are more closely aligned, in terms of how it is, and who it is, that you are, or have been, as an energetic expression – but may still have mannerisms and characteristics that plague them, or get in their way, thus maybe have to adopt adabs, or establish an understanding, so that there is an alignment, and then that can shift as well.
The theme of the dreaming is a very, very Buddhist concept idea. The theme of the dreaming dealt with the principle that, ultimately, and you look at it in a big enough schematic, nothing actually reaches a state of completion until everything gets there as well. That’s why in really, really deep esoteric thinking you have the bodhisattva mentality in which the idea is, until everything is able to, so to speak, go home, that the bodhisattva stays behind, is constantly working towards everything speeding up, or coming into an attunement, upon which it emerges into the oneness and becomes no longer differentiated, or bifurcated, from that which is its real essence, which is an emptiness, and a wholeness, in terms of an intertwining to all that there is.
So that’s the really, really, really deep seed thought, but in your dream you’re working with similitude. First of all you have reached an awakening inside of yourself so that there is nothing for you to really go back to and have to relive. You’ve done that, and you’ve made that kind of a journey with a key aspect of your beingness. But there are other parts of yourself that you support, or that look to you, that you have to provide an empty space towards and for, so that that can unfold. In other words, it’s like the bell ringer, meaning that you have to lead something forward that can’t find that on its own, and you have done the heavy lifting already, so you have that sense on how to do that.
It’s almost like you’re talking about this in terms of using words of separation because that is how we are inclined to perceive everything in the physical manifestation modality, and for things to go home there can’t be any physical or spiritual illusions that stand in the way. And so when you are going back, you are actually going back to further align yourself with bits and pieces and components of a wholeness, of a oneness, that is you.
In other words, you can have a spark that can follow a focus and attention, that can open up to something more than just what is seemingly available based upon the outer characteristics of life. But as you come to realize that this is an awakening with an aliveness that shifts you to other levels, you then have to work towards continuing to reveal, and awaken, and unveil.
And you’re doing this in terms of, you might say, the lesser aspects of your beingness. Because you can be under, say, a given scenario in which things work out, but if you throw in a crank or a mechanism that is a bit askew from that, things will tend to fall apart. They fall apart because some lesser aspect of your beingness is still carrying some commotion, or something, that skewers the sight, the knowingness, the merged essence of a beingness meant to be.
A journey isn’t really complete without all parts of everything. In other words, there can still be conditions in which something can blink, and those are parts of one’s self yet, and they are all findable, they’re all part in a oneness, they’re all part of manifestation. You can attempt to pull that together. You can tend to rescue that and, in doing so, you create a merging. The merging, the part that is rescued, becomes part of that which is awakened; everything, always, it all wants to be like that. It all wants to get to the point where everything goes back to its essence.
And in terms of that taking place, as that happens, it happens at stages and levels. To begin with it’s kind of like the gaze of something upon life can cause a parting of things, in which, you might say, the karma is altered or changed. It flows differently.
So this is part of this going back and forth that occurs. There’s a reason for it, and the reason is to make for a greater wholeness, to create a complete redemption.
