Creating Conflict

myy6Here the dreamer sees men in strange flying objects shooting at one another. And the masculine, as an energetic principle, begins “off the ground,” while the feminine principle is grounded. So the imagery speaks of a battle that is being waged on the inner levels. And the feminine is meant to ground things in life that are sparked into existence by the masculine. Until something is grounded it stays an energetic, but the process of being human is to bring energies into the physical realms. So this is a process we all do, naturally, and the dream is showing the process as it struggles to find a resolution to any resistance.

Jeane: In the next dream, initially I’m in junior high and high school. I think I had a boyfriend in junior high, but at some point I left him and now it’s like high school or right after high school.

And I’ve gone to the beach with a boyfriend. I think it’s another boyfriend. We’re out on this kind of vast sand beach. He’s over to one side and I start looking up at the sky and, as I look up there, I notice a kind of strange flying object. And as it turned slightly I see that there’s a man with a gun, a rifle, that’s hanging out of the doorway of this strange flying object, and that it’s chasing another flying object that looks like a car that’s flying with another man with a rifle in it.

And meanwhile I go over in the sand and, at a distance from me in the sand, I actually have a dresser drawers. I go over and I open it up, and in one drawer instead of clothes maybe some bubblegum or something that had dropped at some point, so there are all these tiny, tiny ants are swarming the whole drawer. They almost seem to be in the air around you as you open it, so I shut it, and I realize I’m going to have to do something to clean out the whole dresser drawers or anything in them, and so I’ve gone back over to the side.

Meanwhile, I look up at the sky again, and the one person in the little faster flying vehicle that has fired at the other one. It’s like the other one got away from him, so suddenly he comes down and lands on the sand and grabs me. And then there’s somebody with him, and then I think he thinks that, you know, I can’t really help him at all because, you know, these are people that fly around in the sky and shoot at each other.

So he starts to leave but then he and somebody else they come back and they grab me, and they start looking at the back of first one of my hands and then the other. They were looking for some mark that denoted a certain genius or something, so I kind of joke with them that they’re looking at the wrong person here, but there was some sand covering the back of my hand so he starts brushing off the sand and he sees something there that he does find interesting. It might not have been what he was originally looking for, but he finds something else that’s interesting.

So I’m kind of a little agitated by this because of the feeling that maybe, you know, they’re going to try to take me somewhere, or they might take me with them, but I seem to walk away because then I find myself preoccupying again about how to clean the chest of drawers.

John: The dream is basically saying that there’s a part of the way that you continue to hold out, or feel yourself, that causes you then to look and direct your attention into the outer. And when you look and direct your attention in the outer, because the way your feeling yourself needs to be somehow or another corresponded to an aspect of something in a manifested way, you actually go away from the imprint of your being – which is an innerness, of which you still have the semblance, the echo.

But when you look out actually all of this being a continued stemming from the space of an attention upon how it is that you’re holding onto something deep down inside, and not letting go of, so as a consequence for that to live itself out it has you looking out to try to manifest it and, in doing that, you end up losing the light. You end up with the masculine principle of being off the ground, and that things are fighting and going at it. In other words, there is a dynamic, then, that is outside of yourself.

Now somehow you know that you need to pull this inside of yourself, so that that quality does come down, and take and look at yourself and look at you, but you have to take that in. It’s kind of like the woodcutter story. The woodcutter abandoned everything in terms of going into his hut and closing all of his shades inside the hut and just sitting and sitting quietly. Somehow or another he knew that in just sitting something more could happen.

And one day he started to notice that there was like a light coming out of him, and he thought well this is interesting. You know he’s sitting in this dark house with all the shades pulled and there’s a light coming out of him. So he is curious how this works, so he decides to partially open one of the shades and, as he peers out, animals sense the light, they come around, and as he peers out he noticed that the light diminishes.

So he goes back and he sits and he reaccesses this quality where he’s putting everything back into the heart again, and the light gets brighter. And so then he decides to open more shades and look out, and he even sees humans and other things now, but as soon as he sees them and as soon as he tries to bring those into focus, the light, the clarity, the inflection of an inner essence inside of himself, that’s reflected as a light, that’s portrayed as a type of light, diminishes again.

So finally he realizes that what’s important is this light and so he just goes and he sits. He doesn’t take and have to try to use his physical senses to try to make the light happen. The light doesn’t happen that way.

What this story portrays is that what he is actually doing is he is allowing everything to exist inside of his heart, and it can’t exist inside of his heart if he has projections outside of himself, if he’s looking with the senses and trying to come from what he has a sense of inside and throw it into the outer. That then dulls and diminishes and shorts the light out. So he realizes that when he sits and goes somewhere, and is somewhere else deep inside of himself, his ability to be really deep inside of himself has a whole lot to do with how he’s able to let everything come in. Everything sees itself. A consciousness emerges.

Everybody is doing it trying to sort things out with their senses and their mind. It’s in the allowing something to reside inside of yourself, and that’s where these little parables come up. In other words, to begin with you may come to see the outer as an illusion, and so instead of it being you and me, it’s just me. And then eventually you disappear yourself, and when you’ve done that, then it is just you – meaning something else – and then that something else inside of your heart held in a place without any story to it because you don’t have any story of yourself, that is where love is at, and that is where God is at.

You have the illusionary inflection of something that’s created. Everything in the outer is created for the benefit of something else to be able to have an experience of itself through it, and so if what is created, in other words if man goes out and tries to perceive everything that’s out there and take that in as if he can read through the illusion, he’s getting it backwards. Instead, man, who is a composite of everything that there is in every regard in the outer, he’s made out of all of that because he is that, if man can just then quit looking out and can instead put everything inside of himself – but he doesn’t put it inside of himself.

What happens is is he actually takes himself out of the equation so that he hears nothing about him that interferes, or interrupts, or disturbs and thus things can come to see themselves by existing inside of a human being. Otherwise they can’t see themselves. A human being having any kind of cognition of trying to do this, or to do that, that’s backwards. The right way of doing it is to get into an empty enough space so that everything is able to mirror by being able to exist inside of a heart of a human being. In other words, there is no “me” anymore. There’s just that, and that, then, is God. That’s another way, a closer way, of describing what God is.

And so in your dream, what you’re doing is you’re still carrying, you’re still projecting, something in terms of a way you want to feel yourself. And this way that you want to feel yourself then has to manifest, and that’s what manifestation is all about is to give you a means so that it can occur. And so when you have this and you don’t let go of it then you are still looking in terms of how to maximize; you’re looking into the outer, because you don’t realize that you can sit back and be holding all of it inside of yourself, that and everything else.

But you can only do that if you have an emptiness, but if you have something that is banging around as a doingness, as something that needs to be, then you start looking out, and then if you’re truthful to yourself, what you see is that that creates just nothing but stress. That’s just a conflict.

In other words, in your image of what you see, you see a type of strife, which means that you recognize, some part of you acknowledges in your higher self, that this tears you down. And your higher self seems to know, or have a bit of an echo towards, how it is done so that when you take a step back it’s as if the issues out there take a time out, and come and evaluate you in terms of something about you as a beingness that intonates something. In other words, because that other is an aliveness that’s been created in the illusion of things, and you carry something that’s like a faint memory where they can see the mark or this, that, or the other upon which there is a sense of something that can go more deeply, outside of having to go through the machinations of activity, of reactivity, of indulgence. That’s an awful interesting way to dream.
