A Dense Plane

12-sBeing human puts us in a unique position: we are able to bring higher, finer, energies into the coarser physical realms. Nothing else can do that, and it is part of our birthright and possibility, not to mention an aspect of our ability to serve something higher than ourselves. And this is where our consciousness and freedom of choice become interesting, because each of us can be the access way for different energies, because of our passions, intentions, and actions. In this way, what we can offer the universe is completely individual and unique. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: In the meditation dream, I am seeking to determine from the other zones, in other words or levels or whatever you want to call them, how something is going on, or what is going on. An imbalance in that regard exists in the physical world.

I’m not trying to figure out the inner essence like you’re doing. I’m not trying to figure that imbalance out. I’m instead interested in the inner level, or levels, and how to recognize that, or perhaps even fix that if something needs to be fixed. If I see the same imbalance in the reflective outer I ponder what that might be in terms of what is really going on on the inner.

So when I stare in the inner, to the degree to which I’m ungrounded or something in the outer, and dismiss the outer, I’m finding myself trying to see the little equivocation or imbalanced note that I’m able to pick up, I’m trying to see that on the inner. And then when I see something that seems a little equivocated on the inner, I try to look even further on the inner.

So I’m going from level, to level, to level all the way to the point where eventually it gets to be too much to take in and so I never get the job done. In other words, in the dream, I’m not able to determine why the issue is a problem on the inner levels. I say inner levels because it seems that there was no simple explanation for why something was amiss from any level that I accessed.

The significance is what is interesting is that I was intent upon focusing my attention upon what was going on, in the inner planes of life instead of the outer. I was so intent in this approach that the outer detail is virtually forgotten. I would look and look at the nuances on a given inner level to no avail, as I would realize at some point that a resolution was yet from a still deeper inner level – and on and on it went.

Each step took me more and more into this subtle intangible, further away from visually understanding upon the lower planes of manifestation, of which upon the planes of manifestation I’m being dismissive, even though that’s where I am finding myself is on the physical plane of manifestation, as I am looking to see what is going on in terms of the inner coming into the outer.

And so what I’m noticing is that, when I probe deeper, what is inclined to happen is I even start letting go of some of the prior inner levels in which there can be a kind of experientiality that maybe can be graspable in terms of whatever the imbalance is, and instead I just feel the imbalance or the offness on some of the inner levels. And so I just keep trying to get subtler and subtler in my more transcendent way.

So what is going on is the dismissiveness I have on the planes of manifestation correspond, you know, because if I have that lack of focus there, I will have that lack of focus on the inner, so they correspond to the inner aspect as well. I must look at that and, if I do, I realize that the imbalance here is echoing from yet a deeper level of my beingness.

In other words, if I’m properly grounded that’s not so, but if I’m a little ungrounded then everything stays ungrounded as far and however you look. So the result of the seeking is I am taking the position, and it’s the wrong position to take, of course, but to understand the denser levels I have to go to the inner source. In other words, not realizing that you can peek behind the curtains and see that here, and that’s what’s called getting grounded or being here now.

I’m finding that this approach takes me to more and more intangible inner levels that, as they get my attention, I realize I have to go even deeper into the inner for the reason behind it all to be revealed. A point is reached where I realize that what I seek on the inner is ungraspable because the inner goes on and on, and there is no inner essence part that I can say, ahh-hah, this is it, and everything now makes sense.

So the meaning is, what I seek to know is like saying I am God, and I have a right to know the innermost aspects of the spirit and soul. What I am finding out is that I could access the unfolding inner will, but I am not able at a given point of overall beingness to be the epicenter, or the Will of God, per se. Or, to put it another way, try as I might to explain what is going on upon the inner planes of access, I cannot. These inner planes just go on and on, one subtler level after another.

So the hint is, what good is access to such levels if I do not accept and deal correspondingly with how it is that I am in the outer – and what that is about? I access the will in the outer and it is not really any different than the inner levels, except that this physical plane is where I am at and, as a result, on this level the Will of God is presenting itself reflectively, right in front of me, and is including me in this denser outer process.

So the reason for the dream is, I am being shown that when I dismiss, or disregard, the outer reflective flow, this same ungroundedness demeanor shows up on each corresponding inner level, and the pattern goes on and on within. The Sufi statement of accepting the directive of what God wants and designs as the will for the sake of a home promised on the inner, which is meant to give you both, is as good as it gets in terms of me being able to see around the denser curtains, so to speak, to the inner will; denser curtains, or the fabric of physical existence.

And also the meaning is that I am not accepting, in the outer, all aspects of the Will of God and, as a result, am not able to be at peace in the outer – or any inner level, for that matter, because it goes on and on. You just never get there.

The path to the Kingdom of Heaven, as the saying goes, goes through the densest of all planes. The densest of all planes is physical manifestation. I know this, and it is for that reason that I am here. So the joke is, is that in seeking to understand the outer physical reflective state care must be taken to not annihilate and, by association, dismiss what is going on in the outer. To do so is to be ungrounded, and to be ungrounded like that is to be not attentive to my beingness here as a beingness that is intertwined to the inner, and to the outer, or the above. I am not able to give up one for the other. I need what is going on here for an appreciative correspondence.
