When we look out our window, or we look in the mirror, we can see that everything is constantly changing; nothing stays the same. This tells us that we have been born into a process, and the best thing we can do with our lives is to be in the process, and with the process – where it is now. Said another way, we can’t make a decision today the same way we might have made it ten years ago; we are different and see things differently. That’s why, in our spiritual journey, we want to be connected to the energy of the higher processes that are unfolding today, not robotically doing what was done 200 years ago. We use our path to connect; the path itself is not the journey. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: Now my meditation dream kind of sets the pace of the subject matter, to which, then, the sleep dream goes back into it. And, in the meditation dream, in order to try to get it to be something that made more sense, I describe a scenario of what one is experiencing at the beginning.
And so I went into meditation pondering if there is a prescribed way upon which the awakening process unfolds. I was shown that there is no set definition, and that I am not allowed to rely upon established process; in other words, you might say Tariqa tradition and stuff like that. I can’t rely upon that as the end all, be all, because I’m able to see the thought-upon-thought of Tariqa processes and, therefore, the appearances that even prevail on that level.
So, in the meditation dream, I am trying to find a means which adheres to what I sense, or remember, vibrationally, from before, and everything that has happened before has a quality or a name that is attached to it, a thought or something. It’s something that’s attached to it. It’s a process.
So what I see is that the manners and expectations are constantly in flux. Life doesn’t unfold the same way as before. In other words, first I look at the setness, and then I notice that things are constantly in flux, everything is always changing. Thus, it is disingenuous to have expectations. The saint always has expectations of purity.
So, in the dream, I was shown that process unfoldment definitions from the past imply that there is a system which is going to just keep repeating itself, over and over, and that there is a way of observing such a process. And what I was shown in the meditation dream is that there is a process alright, and it exists up to a point, in other words, but life is always changing. And because things always changing, then there is a twist that gets thrown in that, if you were literal to the process, you wouldn’t expect. And, because it’s like that, for that reason that’s why no one has an exclusive ticket to the awakening.
In other words, you can’t take and go back and study it as a science, and then just go step by step, because it is evolving. It has to evolve. Everything is continually evolving. The process is designed to unfold in a new way each time. The teacher/student relationship is not something that has an embedded, studied relationship that is unwavering outwardly. I was shown that there is a focus and attention heartfulness.
Now, going back to what doesn’t change and what is basic, that there is, at the core of it all, there is this focus and attention heartfulness that never changes, but, in the outer, there is a flux that causes the awakening process to find a new means, each and every time, to accommodate the ever-changing flux. I had a hard time accepting, by way of reflective outer appearances, that I am able to access a prescribed black-and-white way.
In other words, this is the linearity trying to find the thought-upon-thought, the prescribed black-and-white way. I have a problem with that. To accept that, or to go that way, is to act like that’s what it’s about – thinking that that gets it – but that is not so, and cannot be so. That’s what I’m shown.
I’m okay with that when I let go of definitions from the past, or, in other words, the thought-upon-thoughts, or, you might say, the system of the past, because even though in the times that one lives now things have some similar aspects, the new twists and turns are unknowingly unpredictable. In other words, you can’t lay it out as a protocol.
So in the outer the captivating vibrational lilt is constantly in flux. Therefore, to let go, with regard to the new twists that are occurring, it’s revelational, and transformative. Or to put it bluntly: it is disingenuous to believe the unfoldment process is a formalized system, or science.
Why this leads to a type of relief? It’s a relief in that you’re soothed to know that a greater freedom means that the aliveness now has access to more from within, and, as a result, the design is constantly awakening to a new-founded newness. And it is important because the awakening process involves an inner wonder of sights and sounds, not heretofore preexisting, that awakens the joyfulness anew.
That’s why you can take and you can go and you can study, and all of that sort of stuff that you hear and you study won’t get you anywhere. You can’t comprehend or understand because it’s evolving – and what’s important is your connection to the evolving. The connection that is heightened as a connection by an attunement to the stillness. And then you take out of that stillness and you bifurcate that with thought-upon-thought because you live in a plane in which the thought-upon-thought is magnified and call it manifestation, and, in that regard, you have inflections, images, visions.
There are changes that occur. They evolve, or are invoked, and you can’t go back, in other words, to saying, okay, we have the ten million things. Let’s get rid of the ten million things and go back to the 100,000 things, and, if we can do that, then we can get more conscious. No, you have to, from the standpoint of prophet energy, you have to contend with the ten million things. A prophet cannot take and be like the saint and say, oh, it would be so nice to go back to the 100,000, to the purity, to just the stillness. The prophet is never given any peace, with the exception being until the very, very, very end, which, in the case of Mohammed, was his retreat to the rooftop to sleep.
