If we believe that everything is interconnected, then it is possible to understand how, when we make something possible, by our thoughts, intentions, and actions, that we also make it possible for all. This has both positive and negative aspects, as we see in the world today terrible events have become commonplace that were unthinkable a few decades ago. On the positive side, our efforts toward something better can also become more commonplace as we uphold that possibility in ourselves.

John: Now your dream is very, very similar to my very last dream as I woke up. And so maybe I had this last dream, which is a little different than my meditation dream, to kind of set a scenario to kind of get into your scenario.
In this dream, I am still trying to establish in manifestation the existence of an inner life from what is deemed, by the collective, to be a bifurcated existence. In other words, what I’m saying is that the outer is so overwhelming, that the overwhelmingness of the outer is such that it’s almost as if I’m getting flustered, and I would like to establish in manifestation something that portrays the inner.
So by bifurcated I mean that the flow of an innerness into the outer is not where the attention currently exists and, therefore, that leaves me somewhat troubled. In other words, can you take and point to something that indicates an exception?
Well, human perception tends to look at manifestation as being a displacement reality, in that it exists as a reflection that is on its own. I am of the opinion that there are exceptions designed into the outer, that reveal a deeper inner reality, that can be accessed, or tapped into. So I’m looking at this in what turns out to be both first a feminine way, and then a masculine way. In other words, what is the best that the feminine can concur? And then what is it that the masculine can concur, in regards to a question like this?
So in trying to sort out from this reflective frame of reference, in terms of how to discern this in a meaningful way, that is readily acceptable, that I can relate to in the outer to others, I pose this question. I’m probing for something that I can bring close to me that is energetically touching and exciting, and I pose it first of all to a father’s daughter.
And in that I indicate, in terms of how she’s able to see and relate, I indicate that there are islands in the ocean that maybe everything’s been discovered, but not everything has been actualized and that it’s able to support life. You can go live on one of these islands. And I give her an example of one such island in which, it’s only three, four, or five acres or something, and it has trees upon it suggesting that it has its own sustainable ecosystem that isn’t choked off by the ocean waters around it.
The daughter’s father overhears the discussion and intercedes, and his point is that I’m still trying to work within the planes of manifestation. But he doesn’t say it that way. The way he says it is, he says that scientific study has isolated all the islands and what I am seeking to do is caught up yet in such a collective, because these islands are knowable. And he says that he knows of a better example in which there is a flow of inner, in manifestation, that is not usurped yet in some capacity.
Again, all of this is like an attempt to try to figure something out because the question that I went to bed with, and then this sleep dream, seemed to drill down on is, is there something that’s livable? Is there a way of living in a world in which you have all of this other reflective condition establishing what appears to be a motif that everyone buys into, because they have the faculties of the outer?
And what he is seeking to do is provide me an example of an image in creation that reflects the inner into outer principle that has not been affected yet by the presence of man. The example he gives is, he knows of a place in the ocean where there is a freshwater river that is coming up from the depths of the ocean floor, much like a geyser, a constant flowing geyser, just keeps shooting up consistently.
And I say, “Well, that’s…” That then is a deep statement for me, in that it’s a reflective example of an inner quality not currently impacted by mankind, that exists as a force in nature unaffected in terms of contaminated by the outer environment. In other words, which keeps it from flowing, in that regard not affected by an outer environment. It is affected when it goes into the ocean it eventually dissipates and gets swallowed up by the salt of things.
So the meaningfulness is, I am seeking to revelationally experience the inner thread as an imbedded energetic hidden at a depth in manifestation. In this dream I am asking the question: Is it possible to find anything that is not defiled in some capacity? I am willing to settle for examples, and I’m seeking external examples, are there any external examples? In other words, I’m kind of trying to work revelationally, but this is my limits. You know, I tend to perceive with my senses.
So to start off with there’s the pondering about islands in the ocean, and then the father intercedes saying a more direct example is something rising up from the depths that is an unidentified unknown flow. His example of a place in the ocean where a river comes up with a constant force like that of an artesian spring, except much larger, and when you have something like that it enhances the overall and becomes like a type of unknown that grabs one’s attention to being able to tap into it as a response. My idea of an island in the ocean is not as impressive, nor as direct, an impact.
So the deeper meaning is that I am probing from within for that which is hidden yet able to penetrate the veils of the outer. The subject is inner into outer. I mean it’s kind of been the motif going on for days and days. And I carry a deep seated opinion that inner into outer leads to a oneness, or above and below, and inner and outer, and beginning and end, and all of that come together as one – or ideally so – as one.
Yet in this image in manifestation that is not what is readily seeable. In manifestation, in the salty ocean of life, a pure inner stream can emerge, but outside of this flow there is a compromising and usurpation, something has slowed down to make it dense, that predominates. I had this image to offset the idea that man in manifestation can awaken to something more.
This dream is suggesting by this image that the best I can hope for at this time is revelationally portrayed by the river coming up from the depths in an ocean, and indicating that an ocean in manifestation is vast by comparison to a pure flow that is able to make itself felt in a hidden subtle way.
This is an example of inner coming into outer, but the effect is not all pervasive, as the image suggests, in regards to what I’m able to experience at this time, and what I’m able to see in relationship to manifestation. Or the punch line is: where I am at with my connection from within still leaves something to be aspired.
