Being Taken

soul_bodyWho 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.

A Familiar Story

8uRoleAll of us are good at creating stories, in the form of psychologies, that help us manage the absurdity of the world we find ourselves in. And in our dreams, our unconscious uses stories, as well, to help us see those psychologies, and to show us if they are helping or hurting our journey. That’s why “letting go” is such an important concept: development isn’t always about attaining new heights, sometimes it’s about letting go of the things that hold us back from what we naturally are capable of being. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, to more closely proximate what you dreamt, I’ll start with my sleep dream, which is like a story. It’s like a fable. It’s like a whole thing inside, as if it’s real, as if it’s just a play story that is common in life and everyone should know it.

So, in my sleep dream, there was a story script and it’s called Goldie and Robinson. Goldie and Robinson. And, in my sleep dream, it made perfect sense. This is a real common story that everybody knows, Goldie and Robinson, but no one understands it.

And so Goldie had all the qualities of a surrendered and self-forgiveness approach in life, and she lived that. This was just her natural way. It wasn’t sophisticated. It wasn’t like she had to stare and look at things and figure anything out. She just was a kind of in a let-go capacity.

And Robinson was the opposite. He fought everything. Robinson was constantly looking for a better way of relating, and, as a consequence, because the world was too big for Robinson to take into account that way, everything was too much for him.

So the dream was set as an inner sort of story movie, and I found myself having to explain its meaningfulness to those who observe this. And I was explaining it first in the inner, kind of in my lucid dream state, and then also in the outer to those that I related to around me. And hardly anyone, either in the inner, or in the outer, comprehended its implications – although on the inner it seemed to be more obvious.

I pointed out that everything that happened with Goldie had a natural letting-go quality, and that Robinson went through life and had the same day-to-day, or outer, or quality-type states and experiences, but reacted with each with mannerisms after dense mannerism. It was comedic because to an observer just watching this, you had to chuckle a bit as he really didn’t have any idea how absurd he was, and how out of it he was, in terms of what was going on.

So, in the dream, I am explaining this to others. I explain it in my dream in a lucid state way, and I explain it to those in the outer who I relate to on a day-to-day basis. Most of them don’t get it, when they themselves are compared to Robinson or to Goldie. This is true on the inner lucid way as it was in the outer reflective, yet this is what I did. I described what was going on in the context of this dream story, and I did so by bringing them into it.

Occasionally I would point out the innocent, and rather bizarre, natural actions of Goldie as being something more than simple checked-out absent-minded appearance. And I would point out how this trait and quality was reflected in them, and others, even though they didn’t see it for themselves in the outer, or in the inner, or in manifestation.

I explained how wonderful this trait was in that it revealed how out of it, dense, and linear Robinson was in comparison, in terms of never getting the hint, and memo, and how angelic Goldie’s natural nature was in her surrendered innocence.

This is a story dream portraying the importance of honoring a joyousness of the breath heart, over simply living in an all twisted up, heart-stabbed manifestation, in which one’s overwhelmed by thought-upon-thought appearances.

And it’s a dream that’s done not just in the outer, but is conducted all the time in our own molecular makeup, which results in a disregard for the well being of the heart. In other words, we slam so many things down upon ourselves that it’s in the molecular now, and that has become an even louder problem. You call it the earthquake.

Earthquake Conditions

ieew36On a spiritual journey, our inner core alignments are always at risk. Part of that is because we are choosing to make a journey separate from the cultural norm, but also because we have many automatic psychologies that will play out if we don’t consciously defuse them. It has to do with letting go to what is, rather than triggering resistance that usually makes situations worse. Think of the person who has had a few drinks, and doesn’t get hurt when they fall, compared to the person who trips over and clenches every muscle in preparation for impact. We want to be energetically loose and in the flow, because that’s where our greatest safety is found.

Jeane: What I remember of a dream last night, it seems to me like it was a long dream, with maybe two parts. But what I remember of it was it felt like I was with a group of people, and I was kind of trying to particularly lead one or more to get away from where we were.

I’m traveling through these villages in the countryside, and sometimes outside, to get away from when a big earthquake was going to happen. And I might pause to kind of hide in a place with somebody, but then I had to gauge whether, when the earthquake hit, would we be trapped there? Or this was a place that maybe was safe in olden times when an earthquake hit, so it would probably still be okay now?

But I didn’t know for sure, and I didn’t want the sensation of being trapped. But if you were too much out in the open, then it felt like you might be hit more by things that rolled down the hill. So I was trying to find a place, as we traveled, where I could be okay and protect, I think, somebody I was with, if the earthquake hit. That’s all I remember of the dream.

John: This is an interesting image of a type of being able to hear something in a molecular way. In other words, the theme, you might say, that you drilled down on, was like the conversation that we had that if you eat meat, for example, you can note a hormonal vibration in the animal.

And then, as you were getting ready to go into your meditation, I pointed out that more significant than that, that I experienced, is the thought-upon-thought quality of one’s molecular makeup. It’s as if you’ve gone through life and had things hit you, and strike you, and you’ve developed defense mechanisms where you react as things happen. And those reactions are based upon a molecular pattern, almost as if it has its own personality, or language, or thought-upon-thought impressed into it.

And so, what you did is, you took this into a rolling sensation, and you took it into the outer, where you just called it earthquake conditions. And in those earthquake conditions you were going through the memories of how to contend with that. And this was kind of a gentler, simpler, way of catching up with imbedded nuances within your molecular structure.

It’s probably a little too loud when you find yourself reacting about this, that, or the other, in terms of something that is happening in the environment, reacting to that in kind of a literal sense, instead of realizing that something about the way you are carrying yourself is causing the outer to have to rapport with you in a particular way.

So it’s almost easier to put yourself into a storybook, whereby you know you have the outer, and then the outer is affected by conditions, which are actually thought-upon-thought kind of conditions of the collective, but you don’t necessarily note that. All you note is that what happens in the outer has an affect upon you, and you’re looking at yourself in relationship to how it is that you contend with those effects: whether you worry about rocks rolling on you, or if there’s a way that you can be that is outside of the earthquake zone, all of the various kinds of conditions.

And, ultimately, if you look at that, and you keep looking at that, and you take it into full account, you will realize that you can never, ever get out of the earthquake zone as long as you have a thought-upon-thought molecular mannerism built into your nature. And you’ll also find that everything in manifestation is an embodiment of thought-upon-thought, some yours, some collective.

Collective is actually yours because you’ve twined all of that together, and it all works towards making the composite whole. That’s why you’re responsible for every little thing that happens. But it’s easier to just pretend that you can bicycle around, and figure out how to be, in an earthquake zone called manifestation.

And eventually, or ultimately, you come to realize that there is nothing in such an earthquake-zone reality that isn’t subject to breakdown conditions. And the realization, or memo, that you get out of that is that the answer isn’t in trying to determine cope-ability, or changeability, or where and how to place one’s self, so to speak, in relationship to that kind of overall, mentally orchestrated condition – but it is in how to let go, how to be in a space that is innocent, that forgives, that doesn’t have the defense mechanism, and dense reactionariness, that goes along with having to contend with earthquake conditions as being the prevalent mean, that recognizes that there is something that isn’t reflective that one can just go into, and experience.

And you come to notice that, when you are able to let go and do that, that this honors the heart. The other honors something else, honors the thought-upon-thought mindfulness of things. That’s the lower-self, or density, that is the plane of manifestation.
