Inner Change

281esIt’s a difficult concept to hold onto: change is best effected from inner into outer. What that says is that everything we see exists because of the energy that existed first; what manifests from that energy is the world around us – and also us. An idea is an energy, and then we create something physical from it – a product, a poem, or a song. So if we want to see something different in the world, we need to change the energy inside of us and, by definition, it will start to affect everything we come into contact with, even, over time, our cellular structure.

Jeane: I wish I remembered more detail from my dreams last night, but I just remember like the core part of it. And, in the core part of the dream, it’s as though I’ve been taken to another planet at times, and sometimes I’m on that planet, and sometimes I’m on a spaceship.

And, at one point, it’s like I go into a room on a spaceship where, I guess, because they don’t have me as much under control as they want me to be, and there’s first one person and then a second person, who are almost kind of gigantic and somewhat alien, and other times they can look more human, and they want to intimidate me, or bully me, or do something. But I actually have a certain power with me where not only I can stop them, but I can defeat them.

And so I just kind of demonstrate enough of that so they back off, so that they’ll leave me alone. And then I’m kind of exploring how to use that a little bit, just like what’s that about? And that’s really the only part of the dream I remember very clearly. I’ll just have to see if more of it comes back.

John: I’m not sure what it means, because what you’re depicting is something that’s transcendent, or off the ground, like a spaceship or something that goes to another planet, and yet you find yourself deep within as being okay with doing that – in that in the surroundings whatever is in the surroundings, that is part of the transcendent, that is just a nuisance. In other words, it doesn’t help the situation any.

You hold to something that’s important in a beyond the beyond, but all of the aspects on such a journey don’t do anything for you because they are ungrounded or something. Hmmm.

Maybe what you’re saying is, because there’s a part of you that is drawn to a beyond of the beyond with inside of yourself, and the idea that there is something going along with it, and that something that’s in the spaceship with you, or trying to be at the planet of yonder and hilt, doesn’t feel right to you, is something that obstructs. Maybe what you’re saying is that is out of place. That’s where you get into spiritual illusion in that you’re trying to accommodate and take both with you, but that component or part is something that stays as a quality of manifestation. You don’t bring manifestation into the equation. You, instead, go to a depth within. 

I see what you’re doing. And manifestation is meant to be a reflective counterpart and, in that regard, the inner and the outer make sense. In other words, the theme and the question, yesterday, had to do with the importance of a process in which your attention is placed on the outer. And the rationale for placing attention upon the outer is to alleviate the pain of things in your environment, to essentially figure out how to sort something out, or let go, by maintaining that sort of outer orientation.

And it didn’t ring right to me, because I’ve always believed that the change works in the opposite direction, where the inner awakens and, as the inner awakens, the outer reflective changes. But the outer reflective, and what your dream is highlighting or pointing out more poignantly, is that the outer reflective is a portrayal of where things are at in terms of inner awareness.

And so when the inner awareness is exemplified, the outer reflective corresponds as a reflective that is polished to that. It kind of happens by way of natural evolution, but you don’t go into the outer to try to straighten something out. In other words, you don’t go into the reflection of things, nor do you try to take on the reflection of things. You instead accentuate what you know, and can feel, as a depth within. And when you do that that becomes a heart, and a quality, by which things awaken.

It’s kind of hard to portray it in our puritanical, linear way, but it’s as if the inner, the access of something to an inner, causes the consequences to reflect in an outer that make the difference, that change thing. But they don’t change things through doing anything in particular. They change things only by having caught up with the stillness from within, the inner being the modality.

So what you had as a dream, is you had something that didn’t make any sense in order to help to see, and feel, what does make sense. You had a sense inside of yourself of something of a deep, deep inner depth, and you had a conceptualization as if the inner is yonder and hilt, and that because there is the outer reflection of things that somehow or another the opening up of the inner takes the outer reflection of things with it.

It doesn’t work quite like that. No, because that would still be hearkening to the idea that there is something about working with the outer to the inner. The inner creates the change, or is reached within, as a stillness. The degree to which you are unable to reach the stillness within is reflected in the outer as the vibrations that still remain, and the images then that correspond. And that is what manifestation is about.

And so as you come to a quieter place, and a deeper place, from within, the reflection of that corresponds in terms of the outer, the outer that is again still teaching you in a letting go kind of capacity.

You do not go and try to do anything in the outer – as if that will open the inner up. No, you take and you observe the degree to which you are experiencing something as a stillness within. You can observe that, you can be the eyes and ears of kind of denoting that, by the way the reflective outer is around you. And you don’t take and try to alter or change the reflective outer, because it’s not an outer to inner. The outer is reflective, it is an illusion, it isn’t real, it has to do with the energetic of things densed into an image that then has an apparent life force about it that is illusory; yet that illusoriness falls away as the inner stillness awakens.
