Who are we, and what is our identity, when we completely let go? We can imagine it as being fully and truly ourselves, without the psychologies and reactivities we carry, and in the flow of the energetic whole. We may think that our psychologies are who we are, but they are just pattern formations to help us manage the world we are in. In the real world of energetic cause and effect, we won’t need our psychologies, because we are no longer managing the situation.

John: And then there’s the meditation dream, where it starts off where you have this person who goes up to kind of a game board in life, much like going into a casino, for example, and up to something where you go through the motions of playing some sort of variable.
Only it starts off, in this inner dream, in that the person is able to inject their head entirely into a void so that there is no thinking, or reacting, whatsoever, in terms of what happens. In other words, it’s almost like your mind stops. In other words, they’re totally consumed. When like this there is nothing that can affect them, and nothing can occur that would faze them out of this neutral beingness, a beingness that just isn’t taking every blow in the heart.
The reason is because this is an image in which there is no reflective outer reactiveness in the way, and you’re just letting something unfold naturally. When something unfolds naturally, you stay in this greater spatiality of your heart.
In the next image, the letting go is not complete. In other words, now we’re bringing in where you’re having to contend with this to some degree. There is still an inner evaluatory judgment to this image – and that will affect the outcome.
Whenever there is any mindfulness involved, the empty space needed is directly compromised. This results in a predetermined fate that involves thought-upon-thought effects. Wherever this exists, it results in an outcome as if the outcome is in the hands of the greater collective consciousness, of which we are the greater collective consciousness caught in that mind-upon-mind or thought-upon-thought modality. Such an outcome is what one goes through all the time. These are the outcomes. This is the way we are on the plane of manifestation, thus there is a constant decay, or breaking down.
So in this image the active imagination isn’t in a natural flow. Would you call it an active imagination? I mean how do you describe how something just, in the first image, just let go, and went into whatever it was doing, just took it in, just swallowed it, so to speak, as if putting one’s head into a void where you didn’t have the thought-upon-thought?
In this image I come up before a person who draws the tarot cards, who is pulling out cards for a part of myself that I know. The cards are bright and shiny, and the important cards had a number like 65,000 on it. So deep down I see this as a seeking, upon the outer plane of manifestation, an addictive aspect, meaning that no matter how I may yearn for a suitable outcome, the space I am in is being affected, or compromised, just enough that my thought-upon-thought causes me to lose touch with the greater heartfulness of the soul.
So the meaning is that the first part of the dream has to do with an image regarding a letting go to an inner process in which I surrender to what is meant to be. It’s not just surrendering. I’m just how one’s meant to be. In other words, I’m just not letting anything taking on anything that causes a thought-upon-thought way to have to sort out in the heart – which means I’m just kind of taken.
Wherein the second dream there are thoughts that come up, in terms of the action, and, as a result, the heart has to assess this in terms of how to contend with it. In the first image, I can be in a thought-upon-thought plane of manifestation and shut it completely off, meaning I go somewhere deep within the essence of life, which is like being taken. It’s like being under the care of something, of a stillness or something, of a wholeness.
And in the second image I am not able to quite repeat the process as I am entangled, and thus involved, and, as a consequence, will be compromised by the effects of the outer machinations, in which I am subject to being in the manifestation in a reflective appearance way.
To be in life, the challenge is to watch what one puts in the heart because, if what one puts in the heart goes into the subtle molecular reflective vibration of a thought orientation, that becomes the collective consciousness, and the result is a bifurcation from the real light.
So, in the heart, in the first image, there is no thought-upon-thought, and thus the heart is not in any way imprisoned. Where in the second image there is a pain that remains, because the heart is yet vying into a reflective outer thought orientation oriented manifestation.
In the first image everything is set aside so there is just the magnetized breath shaping what is meant to be, while in the second image either the imagination, or the collection of thoughts in a collective consciousness realm, causes suffering and illusion to continue.
The first image is of protection from that which compromises the heart. The second image takes a common hope and seeks to affect an appearance to be conditional to allow an acceptable delusional illusion outcome.
In the second image, thoughts are involved which tear away the overall fabric and introduce the collective goings on, that are veils, that are thought-upon-thought. I mean all of it makes up what we call manifestation, which veils the inner letting go emptiness from being able to be.
