It may seem hard to imagine that we all have a unique purpose in life – within the greater purposes of the universe. Yet we know there are no two people alike, and each hour of the day brings into play different astrological alignments, and the planet is flying through space so it’s always being affected by new energies. This is part of what combines to make us unique. And the universe wants our unique expression, as part of its unfoldment. So for us to figure that purpose out is to find our greatest liberation.

Jeane: In my first dream, in the middle of the night, all I really remember about it is I seem to be with some people in a place that’s some kind of a structure that’s deep in the woods. And there’s someone to my left that’s in some kind of a framed container, feminine, lighter color.
And it feels like I’m trying to make some connection there with something, something that’ll get me out of the woods. But I just feel like I couldn’t quite do whatever I wanted to do there, you know, and then I woke up, and had the hardest time going back to sleep, and then I had another dream.
John: This dream has to open up, as a precursor, to the way the process is designed to work in terms of reaching a knowingness in which to function in physical existence. In other words, in this dream what you were trying to do was, you weren’t able to quite get things to open up as much as they needed to open up, right?
And that has to happen first. And this process is something opening up to the degree that it needs to open up is a process in which you go somehow home. In other words, it’s like you actually do seem to catch up with, at the interval where the in-breath turns to the out-breath, you catch up with a knowingness there.
And basically another way of saying it is that there is the soul, and the soul has its wholeness, and that wholeness extends to everything that exists, and that between where we’re at in the physical and that wholeness where everything is one is a journey, and involves having to sort things out, and you’re working with the heart, and you’re doing all of this with your values and the orientations and you’re miscontruances.
And, ultimately, through all of that, you come to find out what is important on a soul level. And that when you come to find out what that is, that’s a knowingness. And if you stop, and if you indulge in some capacity or another, before you catch up with the knowingness, then you do not complete the journey, then you go off on a tangent, and then you have to suffer the degree to which you bifurcate it off to one side – still believing in something else to have a greater meaningfulness. Something, in other words, that you might imagine, or perceive, or associate, or identify with separate from yourself because only yourself, your true inner self, only in that is there something that is truly real.
So you’re trying to do the first part, and that is to catch up with the knowingness of something which is on a soul level, which is information that just automatically is imbedded and linked inside of you. And, until you do that, then you can’t really come down or contract into life in a meaningful way, because you have to have the full picture to be able to do that.
And when you do that, then you can take the quality of what you have caught up with, on a soul level, and you can bring it right down into life then, and do something in life. And when you do something in life, it’s different then. It is invibed differently than from how it would be invibed otherwise. It’s invibed with what is meaningful from the other side. And the doing of something like that, in the process of, we’ll say, the journey between inner and outer, is the game that’s being played in which you do the full breath, the in-breath to that space, and then back down into life in a contractive way.
And when you’re coming back down into life in a contracted way you introduce another term that isn’t talked about readily in Sufism, until towards the end of the process, and that’s called you become sealed. What does that mean? Well, sealing is a way of looking at things and being, in terms of things, in which how you are in that regard is meaningful, and so is meaningful, you know its meaningfulness, and so you can concentrate, or focus, your attention around it as something that is meant to be, that is important to be, from the level of knowingness, from the level of an inner knowingness.
Now this is a most difficult thing to do, and that’s why it is said that you don’t want to seal too early. And that is why it is said that you put it off as long as you can, too, because eventually everyone does, and when they do they then are able to follow and abide by the inner orders that are coming from on a soul level as an importance – in terms of that which is designed to be manifested into life.
But you didn’t dream all of that. All you dreamt was you’re trying to shake out the knowingness. You’re trying to get to where you have the unvarnished essence of soul.
