It is easy to think that it is our uniqueness that separates us from the crowd, or that makes us different. But that uniqueness is really best fulfilled as a part of the whole, as a thread in the tapestry of life. When we make our life completely personal, we detach ourselves from the whole, and from the energetic flow that is the wholeness. We thereby lose the connection and support of the energetic unfolding – the everything that’s trying to happen – and end up in a dead-end path of our making. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: So, in the meditation dream, I find myself in a setting in which everything is provided. I cannot imagine, or anticipate, there can possibly be more – and yet there is. It’s as if a blind spot, in the universe of my beingness, exists, as there is more, and more.
In the dream, as I am coming out of a building, feeling good about everything, this person who suddenly just kind of walks on by amicably, without any pretense or anything, that I’ve never seen before, and this person just seems to flow in a way that opens life up, just by this natural flow.
In other words, it’s more at ease. And until this instant happened, life was such that there was like nothing new under the sun. In other words, everything was accounted for, and there might have been a certain way that you felt contained by all of that, but now the whole process changes as a naturalness, never seen, or not in my awareness, is suddenly there. And it affects the possibilities as a consequence of what looks like an effortless unfoldment and movement.
The meaning is, this is a dream that’s suggesting that a deeper revealing is now possible, as I have gone in my way of being about as far as possible, and now something has to shift to open something up as a greater dynamic.
Whatever I did in the direction that I went has paid kind of a price of admission, or something, so there can be this revealing, based upon an unexpected shift. And, in the shift, there is a quickening to catch up with what heretofore had been unseen and unknowable.
And what’s especially fascinating about this shift is I can tell that this new way is just getting started, and that I can no longer rest on what I went through, because, what was, now suddenly seems stiff in comparison to this. In other words, things that are making sense suddenly make more sense. So how one was proceeding kind of wilts away.
And then in the sleep dream, a woman introduces me to her friend, who is another woman I have never seen before. And this friend of mine, woman, comments in some nuance way about a product this woman is bringing into life, that she represents this product. And then suddenly I get handed a tube.
I think I get handed this tube by my friend, and it has no markings at all on it. And then I’m told by my friend that this woman has 30 stores that sell this. And so I’m looking at the tube with no markings, and I immediately say, “Well, is this some sort of hand cream in this tube?”
And that’s acknowledged, and then this woman says that this product here must have gotten out of the vat before it was ready, meaning it hadn’t been completely packaged yet, and had to go through a certain protocol before it could be distributed.
So, as I am standing there, she is pressing her face into mine, as her way of trying to explain what is askew. And you usually have normal boundaries, you know, distance, and is going on and on with regard to the changes, or what needs to be, and what all of this is about. Well, I’m distracted by what I figure is a really weird image, her face smashed into mine like that, as she’s trying to explain.
In other words, you stand back with a little distance. You just don’t overpower like this. This is an odd sensation. As brilliant as she is, she doesn’t seem to notice that she doesn’t have good spatial sense, and I don’t know what to do about this without breaking the flow and disrupting the communications.
Meaning: The theme is about how naturally, nonchalant, and amazing the unfoldment is, if I am able to step aside from petty nuances. This is a revealing going on that is nonstop, but to take it in, under the outer spatial conditions that prevail, a step back is needed. And when I take the step back, I realize that I am able to let go and take in, in life, more than I realized was possible, meaning that one is able to go beyond the defensiveness of one’s nature that one had been carrying around as a demeanor.
And then in this last sleep dream, I’m in a room, it’s like a room and it has a big table in it. And it’s like I’m with a teacher and a group, and we’ve all filed into this room, and I pick up a hose to water, and start spray washing this large table in the room, the top of it, cleaning it off.
And then the teacher, at some point, says if there’s anyone else who would like to chime in, or jump in, to step forward and take the hose. The table is pretty much clear when someone takes the hose out of my hands, and, of course, my attention is upon the table, so I’m not sure what’s going on.
In other words, I don’t realize yet that there are other things that can be done to shape and design what is needed. So this person then starts doing something with the hose to something else in the room, and then this person explains why they’re doing that to this thing in the room. And suddenly I notice, one by one, each person identifying an aspected need, as if there is a cosmic list, and that they then would be taking the hose one by one in terms of affecting something that’s to be anew
And what impresses me is that, in the unfoldment process, and as a result of what each of us has a natural way or role in terms of this process, what impresses me is how the heart, which normally feels a weight when one is kind of on their own or something, and there’s a waywardness, there’s a wonderful effect that rises to the heart because everything is in a design – it works – comes together as a whole.
The meaning is, the dream is pointing out that there is so much more to shape and shift an atmosphere. There’s much more than I realize. In other words, I’m used to looking at my own particular thing, being overwhelmed by even just that. What I’m meant to recognize is that I am part of an overall unfoldment process. And that where I’m at in this is just an aspect of a much bigger picture, able to participate in an aspected role in the overallness.
It’s an awakening in that overallness, and it’s in conjunction with a group, the whole, of which I am not everything, but I am integral in what I do. And in catching up with all of that, in coming into conjunction with all of that, the heart is fulfilled as the support and coming together enriches the whole. And what occurs shapes and lifts up life such that each part, of each step, of us, in a process, touches the heart.
So that was the coming together of the three dreams. It kind of starts off in which you come to realize that you kind of have a blind sight to the fact that whatever it is that you’re doing, that that isn’t so important, and that there’s so much more to take place.
And then when you come to realize that, you lose the image of yourself, the identity of yourself. But the key, then, is to get into the right cadence of ebb and flow, and then when you get into the right cadence of ebb and flow, you find, then, all of a sudden there is this huge wholeness, or overallness, of which each of us, in our own unique connective inner way, has a place within that. In other words, we’re not just all independent, we’re intertwined.
