Path-In-The-Forest
Claude Monet

What are saints, and prophets, or even saviors? They are people who have developed, spiritually, far beyond the average person, and they spend their time working in the realms of energy. They are guides, and teachers, but their role is to change things energetically – that’s why they don’t become leaders of countries or politicians, because that is work done in the realms of matter. But we are meant to see the example of the saint, prophet, or savior, and understand that such development is possible for us, too, and that we can also effect change in the energetic realms by focusing our intentions and actions on purposeful pursuits. To change something energetically is to make it available to anyone who can connect, now and into the future. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I just remember one dream. It felt like I was trying to investigate something. And, in order to investigate it, I had to go visit this school for high school-aged kids. But one of the things I’m cautioned about is that it’s like the rules of the school are pretty rigid, like the girls either are separate, or, if there’s a boy around, they have to sit across the table from them.

But somebody’s gotten me this ticket so that I can sit in a seat where maybe there would be a boy that would sit across from me, or I could get access to talking to them, anyway, and get a better idea of what was happening. But the school feels kind of ominous.

I really just go into the cafeteria and I see I do have a ticket where I can sit across from someone, and I notice that sometimes there are places where maybe a girl can sit across from a boy, but it’s kind of like these very rigid rules for interacting.

And then one of the teachers takes me aside, and takes me to a back building in which there’s an old car, and one of the young men from the school emerges from the car – so maybe he can talk to me, and tell me something about what I’m investigating. But the whole thing feels a little ominous. I mean it’s kind of like all in shadows and everything.

And then I glance out of the corner of my eye and I see what looks almost like some kind of a prehistoric cat, not like a house cat, but like a wild cat, like a tiger or something, except the thing that’s kind of prehistoric about it is it looks like the backside is huge, and then it looks like the backside legs and things are kind of shorter than the front legs which are taller. And I can’t see it all, and I almost wonder if the boy has kind of morphed into this cat. And I think that’s when I wake up.

John: Before you started the dream I had kind of like a visionary inflection, wondering how it was going to be possible to try to describe this kind of evolution in life. What you’re doing… Well, I should describe the way this evolution is.

What you’re describing is not an evolutionary path that is keyed towards the saint, or even the master path, in that you are taking and going into conditions in the outer. You’re living those conditions in the outer. You’re going into the school of things in the outer – as they are – and you’re contending with that as it is.

In other words, you’re not following the path of purity. The path of purity is followed by the saint, and the path of purity is pointed to by the master, but there is another stream of evolution that runs counter to the path of the saint and the master in that it has a different responsibility – in terms of the consciousness of life.

It can even be said that this undermines the saint, in a certain way of looking at things, in that it doesn’t just completely let go. It mixes itself up in things in life. And where the saint is trying to cause a purification to happen, this dream of evolution seems to be burdened with having to experience what is taking place in the outer, blow by blow, instead of taking and purifying one’s self away from it.

It’s a type of indulgence. Now this is a type of indulgence that’s important to bringing something out into the open, that’s in a thought-by-thought way, that needs to be accentuated so that the potential purification process can work. But it doesn’t do the purification process, and, therefore, an approach like this tends to look like it’s running counter, yet it leads something forward, in terms of the times, by taking what is going on and drawing it out, holding onto it as it draws out – and it is awkward.

Now this is the path of the prophet. This is the prophet energy. The prophet energy comes in and isn’t the kind of energy that takes and approaches things in terms of attempting to create a complete letting-go purification. The prophet energy comes in and works with the thought-upon-thought of the collective, and does so in a way that causes it to kind of be accentuated. It’s kind of an awkward, painful, way to go about things, and you find the prophet kind of energy in the midst of the chaos of things. You tend to find the saint and the master as an energy that is absolving itself, pulling off to one side, creating an atmosphere for the letting go. So that’s what you’re describing.

It’s important to kind of know what you’re doing. If you think that you are indulgent in the idea that the path has to be one of purification, steady and straightforward purification, then you would reject the prophet quality inside of your makeup, inside of your being. That’s a different stream of evolution. That’s a different approach.

The saint generally tries to work with the stillness in a way in which it is completely let go, in which there is this total letting go. The prophet is aware that there is the stillness, but isn’t generally allowed to get out of life. And so, if you were looking at the nature of the prophet, the prophet’s role when it is like that generally only changes maybe when they’re in extreme old, old age, and then they’re allowed to check out, but otherwise they never really totally check out.

And it’s an interesting kind of schematic that serves its own role, and creates an interesting conundrum, when a person is trying to conceptualize what the unfoldment process is meant to look like. And the prophet energy has that sense, as well, and so would throw himself into doing things that would be absolutely completely ridiculous in the eyes of the saint energy, where he might go out and kill somebody, or even steal, do things that touched and evoked an energetic important, not necessarily in terms of how one was inclined to conceive it in terms of an angelic or saintly adab, but more inclined with what was needed in order to bring about into the collective, into life itself, another way of being able to awaken – even though that aspect of awakening, from the standpoint of looking at it from a saint, would be considered negative, would be considered maybe even demonic, or devilish.

The saint would be a type that, if you were looking at the naffs of things in the world, the saint would be a type that would know how to reflect a purity that caused that to be set aside, would be able to denote when something is vibrationally off, and add, by their presence, an inflection that touched it in a way that could cause it to inflect in a clearer, cleaner, more pure aspect, that being an aspect towards going home, towards letting go, towards the stillness.

The prophet is a little bit like an agitator. A good prophet will sit there and go through what is taking place by being part of it, not fighting it, not trying to purify it, letting it draw itself out, knowing that if the prophet does his role properly, in allowing something to draw itself out, it will become so obvious to everyone that the echo of a quality of letting go, the stillness with inside, will be something that a person will be able to catch up with. And, often times, that comes at the expense, almost the martyrdom expense, of that kind of energy.

So that’s kind of what you were dreaming.
