Sleeping with someone is an interesting symbology when it arises in the dream world. We all know that when a physical relationship begins, it complicates things. Issues that didn’t exist yesterday need to be addressed today. As part of our inner life, when we form attachments to things, rather than letting go to the flow, we create just such complications. So what may begin innocently enough, has ramifications in the unfolding of everything from that moment forward. That is why spiritual evolution seeks a state of (inner) non-attachment; only then can we truly be free to join the greater flow.

Jeane: It felt like my dream was a little complex last night. I’d been reading a book on tai chi, before I went to sleep, that also dealt with the basic philosophy of Taoism, so I don’t know if that influenced it or what, but I’m pretty sure it had at least four stages, maybe five.
And all I remember of the very first dream, or the first stage, was that I was up at a mountain lake ice skating with some other people. That’s all I remember, my impression of that first dream.
Then, the next two stages I’m pretty sure were represented by a deep blue line followed the next stage with a deep pink line.
John: The first part is your working something through with an action, but then to that action you’re adding a concentration and focus. That’s what you’re doing first, and then second adding the concentration and focus.
A concentration and focus, in a pure way, is not necessarily something that is lost in a differentiation. It can be. In other words, that’s a step in the process of letting go is to be able to have a focus and concentration that isn’t that of the ego.
Jeane: Now, in the second dream that I associate with the deep blue line, vertical line, it feels like I’m visiting… I’m young like maybe in my 20s or 30s, 20s probably, and so are these guys. I visit two guys that live together.
And this whole dream takes place at night. And I seem to live in some kind of a little informal place that’s near an ocean. It feels more like Hawaii, or something. And the three of us have been friends for the most part, but this time I sleep with one of the two, the one who probably seems a little less basic, probably a little, I don’t know if brighter is the right word. It’s like his buddy is more like a surfer type, I would say, and he’s probably got a little more to him.
We’re all friends, but I sleep with the one, but then this changes the dynamic between the three of us. And I’m examining, kind of reflecting a little, on what that change is going to mean because now the two of us need a little more privacy, or something.
And I walk down from the hut down to the ocean, it’s all at night, thinking I’m going to go swimming. There’s another woman, who’s maybe a friend of ours, that suddenly comes. I’ve invited them if they want to come to join me in swimming, but it feels like they’re kind of behind me, or lagging behind me a little bit, because when I get down to the ocean I realize I can’t go in because on the waves in the ocean is a lot of seaweed, and one would get tangled up in it.
But I do go down right to where the water is coming, next to the shore, and on the shore, and I see these tiny little green frogs and I really like that kind of frog, and so I poke one a little just to make it swim because I’m just kind of fascinated with those little frogs. But I do realize I can’t go swimming. That’s the second stage associated with the blue line.
John: In this particular format, instead of there being a complete, total, letting go, in other words, where you’re just in an energetic that is able to be between the two shores, so to speak, you know down by the water, you find yourself as having taken a position, an energetic position by having slept with one of them.
So, instead of the three of you turning into a four of a kind of whole completeness and overallness, that’s a stillness and an emptiness, you’ve disturbed that condition and, in disturbing that condition, you’ve complicated the energetic lines so that you could get tangled in seaweed and stuff like that.
However, the dream, it’s almost as if this is something that is meant to happen, and that you then have to back thread from that in order to sort something out again, in terms of a way of letting go. In other words, the recognition of how this has suddenly discombobulated what had been a more natural overall openness. The reconciliation is in process in this dream, with these frogs or something, and I’m not sure what the symbolism of the frogs is, but they represent kind of a relief, the initial step to a relief from what has been a kind of step backwards that leads to a contanglement. They are kind of like a breaking openness type of relief. I can’t say just how it is. This is more of an association you have.
Jeane: Yeah, these are these little green frogs that I used to play with when I was a kid, in a lily pond, that they start out as tadpoles and then they transmute into a frog.
John: In other words, they represent something transformative for you.
Jeane: Yeah, and so that was the dream associated with the vertical blue line, and then there was a vertical pink line. I don’t know that I remember the dream associated with the pink line, as much as I remember that it had two stages, and one of them was tricky. It was like a vibration one had to get into and it was tricky.
And then there was a dream, but I think it actually followed the third stage, and in this dream it feels like I’ve come in from out of town and I’ve gone to a small place that, again, feels like it’s very simple. My dad is there. There’s other people there. It feels again almost like Hawaiian or something.
And I’m going into this rather simple area where everybody is, and they want me to give a talk on something. They sit around in chairs with little tables in front of them, and then I would be near a blackboard, and I come up to give a talk.
There’s a couple women that are usually there that are in charge of all of this, but when I go to give the talk it feels like some of the talk goes well, and some of it must bore some of the people there, because they just wander off. And then I’m kind of assessing how to relate, but all I can really do is just do what I know how to do, or what I know to talk about.
And then it feels like I go down the street, and maybe that night I sleep just down the block in another place, but when I come back the next day I have to bring back the bed I had taken down there, that I borrowed from someone there, and sort out, you know, what belonged to whom before I leave. And I don’t know whether I can come back here or not. That’s the dream I wish I had held onto a little bit more. It was harder to pull out.
John: Well the pink line is softer, isn’t it? You’re not using the pink line, yet, in a way in which you’re transporting something to the depth that it needs to be transported with. In other words, the pink line is you’re still shaping something. Instead of transporting it into a letting go emptiness, you’re still shaping something.
The blue line and such has to do with being able to have a quality of an egoless state of being, and yet there is still a kind of definition. The transformative of the frog energy is coming in, because you aren’t caught. You’re not literally caught in trying to force something to happen, projectively, with a kind of overt ego. But you’re still carrying a note.
And in the pink line, something is still unfolding in relationship to a quality; the dream is not saying that what you’re doing is harmful or bad or anything. In other words, it’s not like you’re being reprimanded in the dream. Instead you’re just being shown the way you are, you have a construct in which you’re bringing it.
Your use of the pink is you’re still experiencing it as something that is associated as part of yourself. In your way, you’re still playing with a strain of something. You’re recognizing that you’re something. You still have the news of the pink and, therefore, there is an effect that can affect things noticeably, as an aspect of your nature, but there is a greater depth that can be there if somehow or another you can let go of that, too.
You still have a kind of visibleness, a visibleness because you see that as still part of you – and that is you. That is correct. But your state is more real in terms of the idea that, ultimately, the unfoldment is that you are God. That pink is transformative, but it still is a strain.
In other words, it’s like the blue is a concentration, and in the concentration there’s a limitation. In the pink there is a letting go, but a letting go with a definition of some aspect of yourself in a realization kind of way, a greater realization, a kind of, you might say, consciousness, as opposed to a real wide-sweeping subconsciousness. I’m describing it like this to try to differentiate that there is an aspect of something, and this has yet to unfold further.
