We can see that the universe is unfinished. How? Because everywhere we look things are in process; organic life forms are being, doing, and evolving over time. So that must mean that everything is heading somewhere. But where? Well, at minimum, toward a better and better version of itself. And, for certain forms of life, like caterpillars and humans, and perhaps even a universe, that can mean an almost magical transformation. And in this process the universe is refining. An awakened human can consciously support and add to this refinement process – which is also a fast track, higher service to human transformation.

Jeane: So, in my first dream, I’ve gone to a meeting such as we were at last night, you know in a large room like we were in. And, while there, someone who supposedly knew a lot had advised people about a certain breathing pattern.
So I’ve gone back, and I’m in that room, and I’m following and traveling around the room using this breathing pattern. And other people might come in using other breathing patterns. And it’s almost like you think that if you use a certain breathing pattern it’s going to produce a certain result, but I realize after a while that, although many of us are doing this, that the person that gave this to us actually knew that it’s not going to do anything, that none of the breathing patterns are really going to do anything.
And, in fact, they might even have a plan as we’re all distracted with all this, to do something that assassinates something else. So it’s like no one really quite wants to abandon the breathing patterns, but I realize that you have to watch out for whatever this person’s up to behind all that.
John: Well, what your dream is telling you is that, first of all, you’re in a meeting or at an event or whatever it is, in this case it’s a meeting, and some part of you notices something that doesn’t quite sit well with you. Well, you don’t need to understand the thoughts of it; you just need to let go of it.
And so you let go of it by noticing how it is that your breathing pattern can be, or is. And then your dream goes on and tells you that it’s not the breathing pattern per se, which is very, very interesting because that’s a precursor, too.
In other words, the schematic of the dreaming last night was to take what occurred at this program, in which he dealt with some very basics that everyone has to contend with in life, on all levels, and he laid the seed, without even saying it, or at least not saying it directly, imputing it more than anything, imbedding it, helping it awaken in its imbedded fashion, something so much more than just those practices.
In other words, he did something like Hazrat Inayat Khan can do in that, in his presence, Hazrat Inayat Khan used to have people kind of fall asleep because in Hazrat Inayat Khan’s presence everything seemed so vivid, so aware, so alive, so quickened that the teaching was not in the words, it was in a quality of that person’s auric presence.
Well, he hides his auric presence because, if it is too obvious, then something doesn’t happen. So he presents the basic techniques that can be listened to in ways in which you can leave them as mundane, as just steps per se, that don’t go very far, or you can impute into them so much more.
And so you saw in your dream that what was going on at the meeting, even though it may have been mundane things, you saw that that was telling you something, that there was a way of seeing that that you could learn something from that, which means that you now needed to skip something. And what you needed to skip is when something came up and you noticed it, like what you noticed at the meeting, like a thought or something, you could drop it, or you could let it go.
Or, in the case of this meeting, you might not even necessarily know what it was but you could feel it. You could then adopt a way of breathing that kept you free from contamination, from being infected by that atmosphere. And then you came to realize in your dream, the most important thing in terms of the dream, is you came to realize that even the breathing technique – just like the way of dropping something without indulging in it – even the breathing techniques are a precursor to something more.
And what is it that it’s the precursor to? Well, it’s the precursor to a quality of a connection that embraces whatever it is that’s going on. Instead of the reaction that is going to be inclined to be a sorting out that is personal, you have an intertwinement that tends to pull everything together, that works for the whole. And what is the whole? The breathing is actually secondary, as well. It’s the heart that’s everything.
And I suppose, then, you could say the heart leads to the soul of something, or however that is, but that wasn’t what the dream is about. The dream is about, however, there being this something more, which I recognized was a kind of heartfulness, that exudes through everything, and that you facilitate that, not the breathing technique per se, which can maybe provide you some benefit and relief from being contaminated by an atmosphere in which you’re affected by things that are going on around you, some being thoughts you don’t want to have, and others just being the vibe of the place, you could go beyond that with the breath a little, but then that still is an avoidance, that still is a type of separateness, and then when you drop that as an intermediary step, even the breath being an intermediary step, because after that then comes the heart, and the service of the heart.
And to touch the heart of things around you in the atmosphere, you’re facilitating what needs to happen. In other words, these techniques were listened to and heard as if they were personal, but they’re not. Those techniques lead to, as he said, a greater understanding of others.
Well, what does he mean by others? It means that you then are able to facilitate what needs to unfold in terms of their process of awakening. You don’t use these techniques for your own awakening, because it’s not a matter of sifting and sorting in terms of levels, in terms of yourself, it’s a matter of having a connection that sweeps everything up, that takes everything into account, that looks out for the well being of everything else – to the exclusion even of one’s self.
The true awakening is the awakening in which the things around you are facilitated. And so you were indulging in the idea of realizing that, in step whatever it was, that has to do with dropping the nuance of something around you, that what helps facilitate that are levels of breath, that behind those levels of breath what those levels of breath are denoting is something that has to do with a wholeness that comes from the heart. So that’s what that dream was looking at. That’s interesting. Good dream.
