Here’s the thing: we no longer live in a world that we can compartmentalize. We can no longer avoid what is happening around us, or keep ourselves protected from it – like we used to, by building borders, walls, and fences. All of our protections now need to live inside us, in the form of what we will or won’t allow, and in terms of our principles and values. Which means it’s important to have a higher purpose, because it is above everything else that is man-made, and that will give us the guidance we need to get us through whatever we may have to face.

Jeane: In my first dream, I’ve just joined a group of friends who are spies. I’m also a spy, like I’ve gone over to the house where they all are. We’re kind of like… I don’t know, we look like we’re in our 30s, maybe, and they have a mission for us to go on.
And I’m kind of joking around because I know when we go on our mission, where I’ll be a spy, that I can be effective because when I go with this one man that’s my partner I just really dumb down, you know, in terms of appearances, and that’s how I can get the most information being a spy. So that’s the first dream.
John: So what the dream is indicating is that you’re in a situation in which you are unable to cope with what is going on. In other words, you’re meant to catch up with what is there. In other words, you’re kind of like a spy, but you are shown, by this dream, that the only way that this is going to work, because anything that you are apt to do is apt to expose you, or create a problem, is you have to dumb down, which is another way of saying that you have to let go of however it is that you carry yourself in order to be able to be in that scenario.
Jeane: Then I have a brief dream where it feels like I’m going to be sent out as a spy on another mission, but what I realize is that usually when I’m sent out as a spy we go out of town, we travel some distance to where we spy on our assignments.
But this time they want me to spy right at the town where we are, and I don’t know how that’s going to work. But the guy who’s in charge says he’s going to disguise me as though I’m Japanese; and I’m just not sure this is going to work. I’m not sure it works if you try to spy right in your own town.
John: And so what you’re shown here is that, from the first dream, you’ve learned that you have to just let go because you’re not able to function under any predilection of your own, in a given scenario, because it’s too complex for you to be able to contend with. So, in order to properly handle that, you have to, so to speak, disappear yourself, and then you can somehow catch up with whatever the action is.
In the second dream, you’re shown that this is something that is occurring in the here and now, in the moment, and it is not something that you have a choice in in terms of it being over here or over there, which is kind of a transcendent way of looking at things – and in terms of being with things as well.
In other words, in the past you were able to take and dismiss things that affected you as being something that is over in this category, or over in that category, in other words, always somewhere else, or some other part of life that you’re not having to bring into the here and now. And in the past it was always something like that. And, of course, in the past we didn’t live in an intertwined world in which there is the, as the statement was saying, we weren’t living at that time, in what is now the internet of everything.
But the better way of saying it is: the inner net of everything. And in this inner net of everything you’re bombarded with information. In other words, they’re pointing out that a baby born today has to access, at the moment of birth, basically, a data stream of a lifetime all in one fell swoop at the beginning. Or that a person living today has to go through more than what a person went through in a lifetime back in the 1500s.
In other words, it’s the inner net of everything. And so what this dream is saying is that this condition, what is taking place, is in the here and now. It’s not something that you can dismiss in some sort of transcendent way. It’s not like the be all of things is somewhere else, always somewhere else, always outside of one’s self. It is right in the here and now and has to be dealt with now. You have no choice in the matter.
Jeane: Then I have a brief dream where it feels like I’ve driven, and I have this white convertible. It’s an older one, a big white convertible. And I’m visiting some friends and family, and my nephew from California is there.
And I notice that when he wants to help out, like he thinks maybe there’s something that needs to be fixed on the car, he’s just so exuberant in a way that he flips the car over to look at the underside of it, to fix it.
And I’m kind of like, oh no, you know. I think I get someone to take him in to take a nap, but I go in the room to retrieve some clothing from that room and it’s like he hops up. It’s like I’m trying to do something to help, but see that I need to get him to mellow out in some way. He just is kind of overly exuberant with anything he wants to do. And then I’m trying to figure out does a nap do it, does this do it, does that do it, can I help him kind of even out a bit?
John: So this is actually a dream now that takes those first two variables and is telling you that in order to handle that, in order to be in a world that is like this now, that you have to chill out, that you have to somehow or another take a step back, you have to let go in some fashion with yourself, that the way that you are and everything is keeping you spun out and, therefore, over the top – so that there’s no way that you can actually grasp what is important, and what is necessary.
So, in that sense, you might say that this is a personal dream, but it’s an interesting personal dream because it’s personal in the context of what you’re having to confront, and are going to have to deal with, in terms of what is unfolding at this point in time. And, in order to do that, you have to chill out, you have to take a step back, you have to let go, you can’t keep spiraling in the way that you’re spiraling or you’ll never get it, you’ll always be in a state of bewilderment – and probably worse than bewilderment.
