In time, all life seems to be a process of living and dying – and to what effect? There is an awful lot going on in this universe, then, for no apparent reason. It seems much more sensible to assume that everything has a purpose, and a role to play, in the unfolding of the whole, just like we see in any smaller ecology that is only made possible by the enormous variety of life forms that are needed to make it thrive. And, since the human is the most evolved species we know of, it is also sensible to assume that our role is an important one in the unfolding of the whole. But, perhaps, our role has nothing to do with money, entertainment, or power. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: So, in this dream, I am not there to polish a car before it goes out on an adventure. In other words, there was this vehicle that I would take and I would go all around it just putting like a wax, or a bright shine on it. And when you polish this car to a glisten, you’re able to go out with this car in terms of it’s able to move about as needed.
So, in the dream, I do not show up. In other words, something has to happen and I do not show up as intended. And this car has to go out, and a person who has the garage says to the driver, who’s anxious to go, who’s tired of waiting for me to arrive, that he just doesn’t know about this.
My sense is that things will not bode well. In other words, I’m coming into the place but haven’t gotten there, and the car’s going to leave before I can get to it. And even if I could just polish the grill a little bit, if it’s that impatient, if I can just polish that, then that can make a big difference. Maybe things are too animated to give it a complete polish job.
So the meaning is this dream, like the prior dream, is about maintaining a natural and necessary vibratory effect. You hold that condition, and then the effects around you vie off of that.
So this is done, in outer life, by the dhikr of the breath. In the prior dream, trying to hold this effect as a vibration, or a magnetism or whatever, causes an unfoldment to be directed, although the net effect may not be ideal as one would like, because you do have your waverings, it still is an influence that catches up with something more – in terms of something coming through.
In this dream, I see that if I nurture this inner into outer vibration, that the car is successful wherever it goes and if I’m only somewhat focused, this is better than nothing at all because at least with this I will have hope, when without this there are just the denser characteristics of the collective vibratory that is the process, or influences the process; blurs it.
So the significance of this natural breath and nature is that, deep down, I have a sense that in the greater unfoldment all is well. I have had this inner knowingness for a long time. I now know where that comes from – as an ancient inner echo memory. I developed this knowingness by following the vibratory power of the all-pervading breath, something the dreams are saying is needed now, as an ancient history from long, long ago coming into fruition, that I have a vague memory of, that you trust as your ordinary beingness.
In other words, it’s almost as if I take and I look at things that are happening, and there’s a part of me that always kind of wants to keep telling myself that everything’s kind of okay, that it’s all unfolding in a way that I don’t necessarily have a full grasp on, almost as if I can do no wrong because there is that going on. I think I’ve gotten that from having held a vibration to such a degree, in the past, that the world just shaped around that, and I knew how to hold that – because, otherwise, why would you do that?
As you go through your practices, in the outer, you invoke a vibratory sound that is everything, because every world is make out of sound, the sound has an effect in shaping and polishing the world’s soul. As you hold onto a silent, inner, vibratory connection, the light of the inner comes through and is the means by which the inner affects the plane of matter. And, from this vibratory innerness, said to be light, life is shaped and shifted. This effect, light, gives to the world’s soul, which is like a place of sound, will hopefully take it off life support. In other words, he’s working so much with sound but he’s got to make sure he works with light.
And then I have a sequence of visions. The first one is, the dream shifts, and I’m seeing an unfoldment with a vibratory connected need not present in the scenario, but nearby, similar to the meditation dream. So in the dream and vision world there is no time and space, so what I am able to pull together to a wholeness, a knowingness, a connectivity, is just naturally able to be possible being able to see the two different places.
And the meaning is that light takes the plane of sound and effuses it, and gives it this greater effusiveness, and, as sound, there are qualities, or force of nature variables, that are more likely to be in the way, because of the fact that it needs something to come from the inner in order to get the thing going. It’s not just a rising up. It’s an inner coming down to touch outer, and outer rising up to touch light.
So in this vision the all-effusive light is affecting the plane of sound. For reference purposes, I am equating the plane of sound with the world’s soul. The world’s soul wants to shift, but lacks the inner light which must come through the human to effectuate the shift needed.
And in this vision, I am beholding a baby boy who holds my attention as I seek to just be there with him, in kind of a state of shared wonderment, and to give him needed assurance I say, “You are my first born son.” You know, a sense of something again coming through, holding something, holding that original breath.
In the next vision, inside my store, is a person who is not getting what he needs because of a timing problem. I point out to him on display outside of the store, kind of sitting in the sun on the sidewalk, are a bunch of oranges. I tell him they are not yet uniformly ripe, but within each orange is the essence he seeks.
In other words, he’s seeking it in the store and he can’t find it, and so we create the flip. And the oranges are a depiction again, only the oranges are of a different taste. Each one may taste a little different because they’re not all perfectly ripe, but they will get there.
So he asks then if he can take some, and I say, yes, and then he beckons his daughter to pick up some of the oranges, and I cringe initially inside because I’m hoping he is conscious enough to know that he only needs a few. He will hurt the overall wholeness, or process and effect, there, that’s taking place, if he doesn’t understand the fullness issue.
So the meaning, and what is going on, is that the oranges on display on the sidewalk, when complete, will intertwine and complement each other. And when that day arrives, the sweetness will be essentially the same in terms of each orange. At present there is a coming into completeness, but to an awakened being there is enough there now to work with as a process; in other words, but he doesn’t need be whole hog. In other words, there has to be a moderation as it takes time for the essential oneness to ripen within all that is touched.
