The Shorter Way

i00sEverything we see and know works within a system: galaxies, planets, flora, and fauna. Nothing can survive, or thrive, or evolve, without the interactions, and integrations, with other aspects within the system. For the human, that system is not limited to the ecology and environment of the planet, but is, potentially, the entire system of the universe. But we can’t integrate ourselves within that universal system all by ourselves, we need to become integrated through an energetic alignment to the purposes of the whole. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In the next dream I seem to be in a house. It must be with my fiancé, or someone, because it feels like maybe it’s even his house. And I’m exploring some of the rooms in the house because the house has different levels, and his parents live on one floor, and there’s some floors that are maybe even rented out, and there’s other floors that we’re staying at, plus there’s some room where my parents will visit.

And there seems to be a ground level where when my mother comes, that’s where we go, but at one point I want to take her, or take my parents, and take them up through kind of a narrow hallway and a doorway, and some rooms have been remodeled that are even kind of ugly, or need remodeling yet, but haven’t been, and take her or them to where I can introduce them to my fiancé’s parents, and show them the rooms where the parents stay, which are a little bit nicer rooms, more finished.

John: So, the parents, what do you think the parents represent in this case? What do you think the fiancé represents?

Jeane: Well, to me, sometimes the parents represent an energy that’s already settled, you know…

John: Right.

Jeane: The fiancé represents kind of a new energy and we’re remodeling still.

John: Right, right. I would say it in more of a masculine way, by saying that the fiancé kind of represents God, and the parents represent qualities of change agents, of a depth within that, that have yet to become settled, that is astir.

And so this is a dream that is seeking to add to, correct, or modify, adjust what you dreamt before. And so, what you dreamt before is there’s a greater stillness, there’s a greater stillness requiring a greater letting go, and then there is the requirement of having to take into account… you know, you can’t come down in your usual, singular way. You have to go around and come down on this other trail that involves incorporating, and intertwining, with something more that is absolving, and resolving, and coming into a wholeness.

Whenever you take and you subject, and introduce, yourself to something that is unique and different, it’s like embracing something new, and you now have to adjust to that. And so this dream is indicating that the confusion and the chaos that you experience is not really grief, it’s having to adjust with the fact that it has to be done in a different and new way. You have to let go to that as the process.

It isn’t something well settled, and so that’s what you’re adding. In other words, you’re explaining why it is that something has changed. What you’re doing is you’re explaining that, because something has changed, it is having its effect upon the overallness of your being. And it’s going to take awhile for you to figure out how to incorporate that as a settled out, greater beingness, which would be a stillness, but initially it’s not a stillness. Initially it’s like this and that, and that and that and that, all over the place. And that’s why a person tends to hold to a singular note is because they think the closer to a stillness that way, but, in this particular case, so much is going on, things are speeding up, one has in order to incorporate it all one has to reach out and take it all in, and initially, that can be discombobulating. But that’s the shorter way.

Jeane: So the last little image I had was I seem to be reaching into this really narrow, small room. I think I want to remove a kitten or something from the room, and I have a little piece of cardboard in my hand because there’s a bee in the room, and I keep trying to move the bee out of the room, or out of the way, so that I can grasp the kitten and remove the kitten from the room.

But the room is so tight that I really can’t do it without getting stung by the bee, which makes me feel sad because then I know the bee will die. I’ve been trying to keep moving the bee out of the way so it didn’t sting the kitten, or me, and it could live, but it doesn’t seem to work that way.

John: You have your way of dealing with the cute little kitten, and then the area of the bee, and how are you going to do this without creating some sort of grief? Because you can’t get in there, and to save the kitten the quarters are such that the bee’s going to sting. And then the bee’s going to die. How are you going to do this? When you see it in there, how do you get it out? What’s the trick?

This all has to do with an aspect of kind of a quality of a depth of letting go. Which came first, the chicken, or the egg? All these have to do with the letting go. And then you have the stillness, and you know.

This is the schematic, you might say, in terms of what was awkward last night. It’s the schematic, but the inflection that I got was the schematic is going to be awkward because, as pointed out in your dreams, you can’t unfold that way in a singular way. You have to go around, you have to tie in with others, and then the coming down then is the faster way.

So you’re tying in with others that are going through the obstacles, because the mountain is the obstacle to come down, in order to contend with the way things have been moved around. The deck chairs have been moved around in the ship to contend with that.

Now the ship could still be the Titanic or something, but this is how you do it. Chances are it won’t be. It will be if it’s one of grief because you’ll keep tearing it down, because you will not properly let go, but it can be one of joy, and peace, too, and stillness. It can go one of both ways, of either way.

And it can seem like it’s all askew because to have to contend with these other notes in life, to integrate all of that, is going to create a bit of a peculiarity. That’s so interesting about your dream with the fiancé. The fiancé is like God, and then the attributes of God are like the parents, or the components. In other words, to properly pull all of that together, you have to take all of that into account. They all have to meet and come together and, until they do, things are in a bit of a disarray.

It’s as if all of it has been laid out, but then there’s this bifurcation that’s suddenly there. Is it purposeful, or is it caught in a whiplash, a back step or something? Because one has learned and understood all that’s necessary to understand. In other words, you know that it’s inner into outer, and you know that God is a still essence, and that you know that creation is a hidden treasure that longs to be known, in order to cause something to be seen. You know that there’s the integration of the stillness.
