In the outer world we know that if we have a brilliant idea we have to do something with it, we need to help it materialize into life, or it will forever be just a passing thought. It works the same way on a spiritual path: when we gain an insight or a knowing about something we have to then incorporate it into our life, into our decisions, attitudes, and choices, or it too will be lost to the world. This is the way things unfold in the universe: the human receives the intelligence and manifests it into the physical realms for all others to benefit from.

Jeane: Last night reminded me of the night before, in that I know that I dreamt a lot, and I had a lot of people in my dream, but it was hard to hold onto very much.
I know I had a young girl early, too, but the dream I remember was more near the end, and in that dream I’m in a large room. There’s a teacher in the room, and he reminds me a bit of Bruce Willis. He comes to each of us, one at a time, and does something with us. In my case I think we dance for a few minutes.
And as he does that it’s like he’s looking at something that we probably struggle with, or something that we feel we need in order to do better and, for me, I think I needed a particular thing. I can’t remember whether I needed a candle that you lit, or if I needed a poem that you read. I needed something. And then when I had that, it felt like I knew how to proceed better.
And I was with another person and it’s like, when he left me, and like he went to her, and then there was something that she needed. And then we went into the next room. After a while we came back into the room where the teacher was, and this time it’s like you’re seeing how you’re doing now, from how you were doing before, and maybe even how whatever it is that you do affects you if it was something you needed to read, or a candle you needed to light. It’s almost like you might initiate that before you saw the teacher, but you’re also moving in a certain pattern across the room all the time. And it’s just my vague memory of the dream. I mean I know the dream was a lot more complex than that.
John: Well, you’re dreaming the specifics of a kind of… it’s hard to say specifics because you’re incorporating a generality of how something unfolds. And you’ve put it into a dream format and, what you’ve indicated, which is also how the process works, is that the sensation of awakening can be a lot like things are given to you. In other words, they are suddenly something that you have caught up to, something that you need.
You looked at it as a quality that just when it happened gives you a certain relief in life, and you likened it to being like something that comes from a teacher, because the teacher is what can make the connection that causes you to awaken to yourself.
But then you pointed out that the teacher quality moves around and does this with others. Now what is really doing this with others, and the moving around that takes and infuses something in others, is what you do, is what you naturally do. I mean this is how you dreamt it, and this is how you come to know the greater beingness of the moment that is yourself in all things – is that just like there is the sensation of like a teacher or quality, a higher self or whatever you want to call it, that goes around and takes and causes something to awaken, and feel good, and be expansive, and be free and all of that, in the same token that mannerism lived in the outer, indicates you have to go around and do the same thing in relationship to all that there is around you.
Because it’s all you. And so how can you have it one way selfishly, for example, and not exuded, yet at the same time it isn’t really possible for something like this to be… the term is personalized, because when you do, then you’re only fooling yourself in kind of a cheat and deceit way when you think that something is given to you, if it doesn’t come across and go outwards into it touching and awakening everything around you.
So what happens is you come to a point inside when something is opened up, and is like a quality where something is given to you, and you can’t go away with that separately on your own. You have to resonate that out into life.
Now the idea of going away has levels to it, and one of them is when you judge or pick at things. In other words, when you feel a particular way, when you have something that’s opened up that’s rejoiceful and wonderful inside, you naturally want to exude that. But, at the same time, you can take a step back in yourself and notice how you’re anguished or repressed – and you have a choice then. Do you push away from that and try to stay in this expansive heartfelt space? Or do you give something to that, or do you do something with that, to cause it to be rejuvenated in its way, to be awakened, as an extension of yourself in its capacity for the overallness? In other words, to be infused. And how do you do that?
Well the mistake that’s generally made is the inclination to try to do this by causing something to shift in the outer, through a way of taking a position in relationship to whatever it is that you have as a sight, or a perspective, that is doing the best that it can to come off of the expansive feel-good state. Well the problem is that has an opinion to it. You may not think that it does, but it does. The way you notice the opinion of it is to the degree to which the energy gets dissipated in some small regard or another.
So when you see this energy getting dissipated, you’re not allowing yourself to be in this swept-away state; you are pulling yourself back into a regressed condition. Because you are the overall, so what you have to do when you see this is it becomes your worthy challenge to flood that with this quality that you experienced flooding in you, to live it, or to resonate it out, into the environment in which you’re in.
Now you can’t do that, and you aren’t doing that, if you’re taking and you’re pointing at this, that, or the other as being out of twang. When you do that there is a certain stabbing that occurs there. That’s why you will see that, even though that it may appear completely over-the-top if expressed in words, you’ll see a teacher supporting a concept that, from the standpoint of the step-back qualities and characteristics and nature that one is inclined to carry when they haven’t opened up to the gifts that lie there inside, you’re inclined to throw water on that, or throw dirt on that. Basically, “Yes, but” it. And the thing is you are correct in “Yes, butting it,” but that’s not what it’s about. What it’s about is to feel the sweeping up, to feel the sensation of something that goes into a wonderful let-go state as a kind of gift. Now you’re not going to have the gift if your observations tell you that something is affected, or is impacted, this way or that way.
The way your dream really just left it, in terms of an overall image, was that there’s the teacher, there’s the teacher’s presence in the environment, that teacher’s presence is sweeping things up, it’s opening up the gifts and the qualities that are there in the environment, and that, to some degree as that is happening, you’re finding yourself having to carry on in that motif as well – in terms of how you conduct yourself in terms of everything around you. You may be inclined to see that as the teacher going about doing this, that, and the other continuously, but it is you that catches the note that goes about and does this continuously.
So, from a shamanistic way of saying it, when you are then in a situation in which there is a conundrum in which something is divided, in which there’s the step back energy, then that is when you find out whether you have held onto anything in terms of the expansive quality of heartfulness, or not. That’s when you find out.
And you have these step backs all the time that are painful. It can like be painful when you take and have some sort of opinion, in other words, on an energetic level, whereby in an outer way you project a motif this way or that way.
So the theme of the dreaming has to do with working with a vibratory energy that has a free quality to that which causes levels of things to open up, and when those things open up then, as you move about in life, and you honor that part and those gifts, or however you want to call it, that have opened up, you find yourself able to shift at a moment’s notice – almost as if you’re called to be somewhere else, but you’re not really called to be somewhere else. It’s an action that is like being called to somewhere else, but it’s on a level of energy basis in which, instead of the usual denser reaction of something that announces itself in a loudness and a condensed way, you are able to effuse that, or give something to that, that causes it to have the sight, in other words, through that vibration to step forward again from its step back.
So what we have in life is, we have in manifestation, we have things that have to be, through the aspect of gravity or something that have condensed in a capacity, that need to know how to step into a greater light, in a greater space. And yet, at the same time, that which has been given something, that can step into the greater space, has to take and do the same process itself because it’s all part of an intertwined whole.
The teacher quality as you identify it inside of yourself, causes something to occur that is a wonderful breakthrough, that leaves you expansive and exuding, but then what are you going to do with that in relationship to the day-to-day that you could say seems like a whole different sequence of things around you? It’s not. It’s part of the illusion.
You have to give into that, or otherwise it won’t be real. It will fall away. The quality by which you have caught up with a certain acuity is intended to be given into life around you, instead of it being kind of like a possessory contrast by which you then fight the unfoldment of things around you – which means that you leave the stuff at the door, and it drops away. You do not have a oneness, and do not have a wholeness, if it is like that – where it drops away.
