It’s been said before, but it bears repeating because it is so rarely made clear: spiritual paths and religions are meant to start us along the path to our human purpose. But, at a certain point, it becomes just us and the universe itself – no one else can help us, or steer us. It is the way of the human design to gain the intelligence and guidance it needs to proceed, and for each of us it’s as unique as we are. Said another way, teachings are meant to help us connect to higher things – but, once we do, we must follow the guidance we personally receive.

John: Well I had a similar dream, in comparison, in which it’s like you and I have gone down into the parking garage. It’s like under some building anyway, some large complex that we live in, and we’re going to what I know is our temporary parking spot.
And, when we get there, I notice there’s a car already there, but also out in the main aisle is a worker who has this bucket on the ground, in the center there, and is taking and finessing some machinery or something, a tube or whatever, up high, up above. And so my assumption is that the parking spot and what’s going on here are somehow correlated.
And, suddenly, as you’re walking by him, I’m behind you and so I’m still kind of watching what is going on there, as you’re walking by, almost as an effect but probably just the way it’s done, he takes and he releases something and, in one fell swoop, into the bucket is this mixture of concrete that just drops, plop, right into the bucket.
And so I say to him, “Do you ever miss?” You know, because it looked like he was aligning or doing something up above. “Do you ever miss?” And he says, “No, never.”
And then he somehow knows that you are supposed to be doing something, in regards to something almost like a school project or something, some project anyway, and so he says to you: “Ignore the speech at the end, but follow to a tee everything else.”
And as he’s continuing to explain how important the first items are at the very beginning, he then kind of pauses, almost as if you might still be influenced by the speech or something even though you’re to ignore it, and he states it – even stronger this time – and he says: “I’ll burn the speech, so you better not pay any attention to it whatsoever.”
And then I turn to you, and I say, “That’s correct, that’s right.” And the reason why I’m able to say “that’s right” is that earlier I had gotten some sort of impression or something, direction, or orders or something that came down and affected me in some way, and realized that apparently whatever it was that I was making out of it was not what it was about.
So that was the dream. And what I wrote up about it, as a meaning, is the status quo in terms of how it is that I see myself situated is in flux. My temporary parking spot is no longer available for my use. My attention is being directed to a work in progress. It is coming down in one fell swoop. I am to ignore what there is to say about the unfoldment, where you can portray it to others, because that takes an absoluteness into the relative. I am to place my undivided attention upon a guidance that I feel within and, to keep from being distracted, burn everything else. I hear and denote this as a here and now, requiring an unwavering attention to what is moving inside me.
