We are all aware of the saying that a person is either a part of the problem, or is a part of the solution. We can understand this idea when we look at helping the ecology by leaving a smaller carbon footprint, or by taking our support away from people or companies who espouse ideas we don’t agree with. But nowhere is this concept more critical than in the energetic realms. And a useful position to take in ourselves is to either support something energetically, or to starve it energetically – because even putting negative energy to something we dislike feeds it. So we want to uphold what we believe in through our intentions and actions, and stay neutral to the rest.

John: Now my sleep dream did this whole thing in yet another way. It’s actually identical. Everything is identical about it, it’s just a different story.
In the sleep dream I am visiting this couple who own a piece of property, a house that’s on some acreage, 30 or 40 acres or whatever, and the wife really loves the property. She sees it as having wonderful vegetation, kind of a little bit of a rainforest, nice trees; so it’s something that she appreciates.
Her husband has a problem. The problem with the husband is he likes to smoke. He can’t smoke in the house. So he goes outside; he’ll scatter his ashes in the dust so that it just gets blended in, and he buries the cigarette butts. It’s just how he is, and the wife figures it out. She is livid. He’s defiling this wonderful piece of property, smoking, scattering his ashes, burying cigarette butts. How horrible. How disrespectful.
This chaos creates a confusion, and I’m just a guest, and so I’m kind of confused by all the ruckus that’s being created there, so, even though I don’t smoke, I have to indulge a little myself, just experimentally, in order to be able to formulate what I think about the situation. Because she’s ranting and raving too much, and, in a roundabout way, he’s half true, too, in the idea that even though he’s smoking outside, and it is a little bit rude to the revelational beauty of the property, what he’s doing is innocuous enough that you generally don’t really quite realize or know.
Now why he’s doing that isn’t yet revealed. Why he feels that he can get away with doing that isn’t quite revealed yet, because it’s an aspect of unconsciousness, and she is right in that regard.
So I go out and decide to smoke just to kind of gather the facts of the commotion here. And so where there’s some spots where there’s been some digging I scatter the ashes there. It blends into the dirt and nobody knows, and I kick my cigarette butts underneath the leaves and whatnot.
And then, as I’m walking along, all of a sudden there are spots where I can see underneath the vegetation, and the soil, that has accumulated there, naturally, that is just kind of part of a slow progressive way that the essence of things works. In other words, appearance-wise on the surface it’s wonderful, lush, rainforest, beautiful trees, gorgeous in that regard, but just underneath I hit an angle or two where I look – and I’m in shock. Underneath is nothing but garbage cans. It’s an old garbage dump and there’s no dirt, there’s no nothing where the garbage cans and the garbage dump is at. It’s just one huge pile of garbage.
Now I can’t go back and say anything. I just know that. I just know that it’s one huge pile of garbage, and yet, over time, there is something of the essence of things. There is a revelation. There is something that can permeate through no matter how dire the situation works.
So what is the right adab, or approach, about this? Is it to go into a despair and totally give up because of how it is?
This is nothing but underneath the surface of things a pile of rubbish, and yet, over the course of time, something has been slowly trying to heal that, and vegetation has built up and is able to exist – but you don’t want to dig too deeply because it is overwhelming what has been done to it. And yet you can hold to that, and something more can come to pass, in a healing-capacity way.
You could use my dream as kind of a seed question answer to the idea: do you actually do anything to change the world? And in a vibrational way you have to carry something inside of yourself, and carry it in a type of reverent vibration, so that it is able to be above the garbage heap of tings, or above the calamity of fear and everything else, in terms of dense energy, or raw energy, which is needed in order to cause something more to be.
In other words, it’s a world not designed to collapse underneath the raw conditions of things. It’s meant to be able to take that in, rise above that, see something revelational or more. It is like that in an outer way of looking at it, yet revelationally, deep within, there is a way of feeling a transformative vibrational state.
And you can only do it by holding onto a quality of the vibration that reaches into the essence of an overallness, and, if that vibration didn’t exist there would be a void, and if there was a void then there really would be something called death.
However, there is the shrediment of something that even though it is what it is can be accepted. It can be accepted when placed in and upon the essence that is still there. It may be in dire shape, but it’s still there. You can place everything onto the essence.
The family that I visited, there was this shred of something that had, over the course of time, manifested over the top of the garbage heap. The same is kind of true with the guy and his smoking and his cigarettes. He’s still somewhat influenced by the unconsciousness of things, and the feminine energy was holding to what little was left of a reverence – but even she did not know how extremely dire things were. And you don’t want to create a despair.
You hold to the vibration, you hold to the hope. It’s the only answer that there is that sees things through.
