If we were able to see all the energies surrounding us, and, of course, some people can, it would be easier to understand how, when we move, we create energetic ripples into the surrounding environment. It is a fact, whether we acknowledge it or not. As we make our spiritual journey, we seek to connect more and more deeply with the energies that are in our environment, because they are filled with information and intelligence about the “other” effects going on around us. When we do connect, we are closer to the flow of things, and are working with the energies at play in a given moment.

John: So, in the meditation dream, there is the sense that a particular effect has occurred. So I go over to where it was to have happened, and the effect is not there; but the object, or whatever it is, is very loud as if it is set forth in another spot.
So, you know, this is a tough image and whatnot to understand in that, usually, the way your mind works is your mind looks at something in a black-and-white way. But then, when you’re affected by being able to hold onto a magnetic energy, then you can deal with things that are more translucent – and it could be over here, it could be over there. It doesn’t have to be any black-and-white, controlled way.
That’s kind of what this is talking about, but the meaning I wrote up is: in the dream there is the sense that an effect that has occurred, and if I follow my heart to see where it is directing my attention to be placed, I will notice that the effect occurred, but not where I expected, and that, as a result, there was the surprise in terms of where to look. And I’m able to follow, and handle, the effect when my heart remains attentive upon sustaining the net effect.
Basically, what is the net effect? Well, the net effect is this huge overallness. And actually the word “net” is probably the wrong word, because it’s inclined to look at things as if you are compacting to a particular point. But maybe overall effect is the word, because when you sustain the overall effect the location of that is there is no location of it – and yet it’s all taken into account. And there’s a vibratoriness, you know, like the dhikr vibration, or the light vibration, or something that somehow or another is able to accommodate all of that. But, in terms of it being meaningful, it has to keep being grounded.
The plane of sound and such that the Chistis work with is trying to figure this out by a rising up of the energy, as opposed to something that is coming down, as a light coming down. They have the light rising up, and they’re trying to look at it equivocating that way, but I struggle with that because in the world soul of things that’s on life support, so to speak, it requires something more.
It requires something of a greater all-encompassingness that comes through, and that can’t come through because our nature is inclined, like what you were trying to do, it’s inclined to try to put it within parameters – and it can’t. It has to take it as it is in this, and to be able to take it as it is, it has to ground it, has to make it ground.
So the dream is indicating that there are an extreme degree of outer variables capable of causing one’s mind to go askew. But in the dream, when I hold onto a net effect vibration, or a magnetized part of myself, as a result of holding onto that, I’m able to follow the effect through, because you’re not having to steer it, or be attached, or whatever, for it to be defined.
Because the variables are more than I am capable of taking into account, I must learn to maintain the inner power essence behind the breath, which is what designs as the situation requires. The net effect is shaped by the heart, and not by my ideas, in terms of what is important. I need to trust in this net effect, or overall effect, whatever you want to call it, as being how I am meant to be.
