If we want to understand how a machine works, we can take it apart and see what makes it go. But what do we do if we want to understand living things – things we can’t take apart? Well, we have to connect to them, in the same way that a shaman or medicine man in the past learned to connect to the healing essences of plants. And if we want to connect to something energetically, we have to do it from the essence in us to the essence in it, which means energy to energy. But, of course, we have to become quiet enough in ourselves to receive and translate that communication.

John: So, in the meditation dream, I find myself holding off from responding to an issue in which there is an invoking of an outer response. In other words, it’s an outer trying to get my attention, and so I’m holding off responding to it. And I hold off because I know, deep inside, that the response cannot be an in-sync reply. In other words, you can’t respond to the outer: reflections cannot meet reflections.
So I hold back, and do not reciprocate outwardly, because there’s something inside of me – and I consider it like the soul or something – which is refusing to move. It wants to just stay still. It won’t buy into this outer that is trying to grab my attention.
So I find myself surrendered to the inner stillness. In other words, I just can’t bite; that motion just doesn’t grab me. And so what does that mean? Does it mean that the outer vibrations are somehow or another absorbed by the stillness, or into the heart? And that my mind, that normally buys into the outer reflections, just cannot do it? In other words, there’s something that has gotten more meaningful, in terms of staying still with a more all-consuming heartfulness.
So that causes me to wonder: what is this stillness? And I come to ponder it as relating to the plane of the soul, which is where surrender and nonbeing come together, and where everything is absorbed. The outer is absorbed by this encompassing heart, or something.
In other words, the reflections aren’t separate. The reflections can all be taken within. And so, in other words, there’s always going to be reflections, but the reflections, you don’t take them with you in bizarreness, the reflections stay as manifestation still, in terms of the degree to which something has to act out vibrationally, with images.
And you’re always noting the degree of true stillness by looking at the greater teacher of the outer, that is manifestation, but you don’t try to change the outer in order to get to the inner. Such a mindset, in which the outer vibratoriness and corresponding images are something that you can bring with you into the plane of the soul, it just isn’t so because they are reflections. They veil the heart from the inner. They vie for the heart.
So what happened is, in my meditation dream, I was able to not reciprocally react because I was on the plane of the universal soul where stillness is natural. Now the alternative to that, of course, is an outer reflective in which the senses portray the reflective physical and the result, then, of something like that is kind of an ego orientation floundering as manifestation. In other words, putting out the vibrations and the images because vibrations and images are correlated. Or, to put it another way, manifestation exists as an outer reflection in which vibrations correspond to created images.
And so this has caused me to notice a psychic illusion. To visualize, within, an outer future unfoldment involves the taking of a vibratory energetic from the stillness into physical manifestation, and doing it this time in which you stop time, as if irrelevant. In other words, manifestation is a conditional reflection involving time and vibration which, densed down, becomes physical space.
So psychic inflections are a deviation in one of two ways in terms of the stillness. They are a deviation in that you can have a psychic quality in which you transcend time, so that you can come to see things backwards and forwards, and up and about, that’s a psychic trait. Or you can take and you could still be buying into time, but you can get rid of vibrations, in which case if you can get rid of the vibrations that then manifest into something physical because they constellate as something dense in the outer, if you can get rid of the vibrations, you know that have their way of having to live something through in a reflective denseness, then you can do things like transport or move objects. In other words, you can transcend space. So psychic abilities have to do with playing on the edges of time and space, that are important as foundational points to a vibrational imaged manifestation.
And so what has happened is it’s causing me to denote the subtler levels of vibration in relationship to looking at the stillness, in terms of looking at the stillness, in terms of the components that come out, that are the reflective manifestation. Thus you hold the stillness, and then the manifestation reflects differently. It’s just how it is.
It reflects to the degree to which it still imparts that which still has to be lived, and it still has to be imaged. It still is something that you’re not quite fully able to let go of. It still reflects that. You don’t come to the stillness by playing with the reflective outer.
So that’s an important distinction, and I can see how this can happen, in terms of a perception, because the out-breath looks like you’re bringing something down into it, and so, as an out-breath it’s like, you know, there’s a momentum and whatnot. It’s easy to catch this as something that is meant to impact the outer – but, no, it’s from the inner. That other creates a diversity where there is the seeing and hearing of things that are unfolding, but the unfoldment is reflectively oriented to the inner awakening.
