As we make our way on our journey, there is always a new and further point up ahead. And that’s okay, because what is important is to be on the path itself. And at each stop along the way we can get a glimpse of what awaits us, as we come to understand that what we thought we knew was just a partial view. In the fullness of time comes the fullness of the whole picture. But we are a long way from home, so we just keep putting one foot in front of the other as we cover new ground and refine our navigation skills.

John: So, in the meditation dream, what I’m experiencing is to begin with deemed to be of little significance. I am told that the specifics are stepping stones on the path, and the experiences can seem sensational to the part of me that is ready to give up.
I realize that it is not possible from where I am at, at this time, to have any appreciation for what is yet to be. Again, I’m talking about a sense of something, aware that what’s going on in the outer has little significance, but I guess what I’m saying is, I haven’t quite bridged the divide to something else. And so, apparently, I must be having to have an appreciation for what is yet to be, without actually having the experience of it – because I do know that the outer isn’t where the significance is at, in terms of something that’s aspiring to come through.
So from what I have already experienced I can sense the experience to be part of a passing wind, in other words, again, of no significance, which means that what that is is out of reach to what is so much more.
It is about this time, that coming from the perspective of the higher self, I am able to shift my attention to being receptive to that which is to come. I mean, I’m receptive to it, but I don’t know what it is. That’s the meditation dream. Isn’t that interesting?
So the significance is, to denote this latent inner depth as yet to be humbles me in the here and now, in other words, because I know it’s there, even though I’m carrying on the way I’m carrying on. And then I notice that any plan to do this, it doesn’t get you anywhere. In other words, if you looked at your condition as dire, and had grief about it, you could have all the prayer and watching you want, but can this lead to the recognition?
And, yet, maybe it can. But it is not done in my dream this way, as I have a sense of so much more. In other words, I don’t have the grief. I’m able to do this outside of that. I just naturally have, instead of sitting there in some sort of helplessness, I have a sense of so much more already and do not need to be smashed to let go, which is what a type of grief does. Everything about you is smashed. Being receptive, being accepted, and being still is opening me up to an inner awakening process that knows no bounds.
And, of course, I portray then as the meaning here. What I am experiencing is a precursor and threshold to so much more, which is there for me to appreciate, pre the fact. In other words, it’s like a sense of it. I mean it’s like a hope. I hold out for it, so it’s like pre the fact, and when I yield to the sense that what I am going through now is barely the start of the awakening process, when I yield to that, then there is hope. In other words, there’s not despair, or there’s not grief, because that doesn’t help me any.
And if that’s an aspect of prayer, well, okay, but prayer has a distinct definition to it, too, so that can create a stigma in terms of it being something that is reaching for something outside of one’s self. That’s what prayer kind of tends to do, when everything is within, so in that regard it’s a bit of a deviation. And, as far as watching, I’m already aware of my plight, I just don’t have the other, the higher self, that I know is outside of that, I just don’t have that at my disposal.
Or, to put it another way, what I am talking about is portrayed in the image that I have slid down a banister, in other words, this is a house that has multiple levels, and it has this spiral staircase coming down, and I’ve slid down the banister from the upper level floors all the way to the ground floor. And, in doing so, come to realize to my surprise, how wonderful life is.
In other words, it’s almost like coming to the bottom is scary, and it’s like staying up above in some sort of expansive space, and so I had pushed off from that because I guess I felt that I needed to avoid the myriad of things, and that the ground floor was lesser in some capacity. And when I came down, I found it to be wonderful. Of course this image is not possible if plans unfold in terms of how to do this. Such plans will be in the way.
