LemniscaatIf we think of the human as a mirror of creation, we can understand that there is a realm of energy and a realm of matter; i.e., there is the physical, and there is the unseen. Since we find ourselves in the physical, we come to believe that we are separate from the wholeness. But what about Creation? How does She connect the seen and the unseen? Through the process of out-breath and in-breath, the manifestation of matter, and the return to the source. And we humans can connect to the whole through this same process – if we do it consciously.

John: The meditation dream had me noticing the flow again, how things flow, in terms of inner into outer, and what that means again in terms of looking at it in a slightly different way, because it’s easier to say inner into outer, but there is a step-by-step process in that.

And, in the meditation dream, I kind of notice that in terms of there being a conundrum when you don’t notice it. In other words, the first thing that happens is you go somewhere deep within, and it’s kind of like you are connected to the essence of all essences. And, in that place, you’re soothed in the stillness beyond time and space – but you don’t stay there.

And then, at some point, you start to make a return into the outer, or you return by way of a vibration starts to come out of that stillness. And then the thought, which is connected to that vibration, begins to formulate, or formulates from what had been an unconstellated firmament, that being just the stillness that’s the overallness of everything.

And then as the vibration comes more and more to the surface, that’s when projection starts. That’s when you take notice. That’s when you start to try to grasp it or something, or try to quantify it. Before you take notice, though, everything makes sense and is wonderful, and you’re able to abide in the empty, all-inclusive stillness.

But then, as the thought-upon-thought comes, and becomes more of a projection, then because it grabs your attention in terms of utilizing it in a plane of thought-upon-thought of sound, there comes a point when the vibrations make themselves known in a way that grabs one’s attention contractively. Projections are contractive.

What I mean by contractively is that you are focusing, from the overallness, in which there’s the unconstellated formulator of essence, and you’re taking it into a formulator mode, which is like a type of creating, and although you think you’re making it more real, you are actually hurting it. By trying to funnel it down you see that as a momentum, but you’re actually demagnifying it in terms of its overall permeation.

And then, ultimately, as you come to create by these thought-upon-thought vibrations that get concretized into what is manifestation, you come to notice that the vibration comes out of the inner stillness. It then causes the sensation to become more noticed, and more projected, and flows in a way as if it is seeking to awaken, and do so by pulling itself into a process manifestation.

In other words, it’s our way of trying to pay attention to something that is delineated, as if we can reconcile the inner into the outer. Yet by contrast, when we’re more in the overallness, or you might say the inner, where the essence predominates the outer manifestation of thoughts that concretize, you realize you don’t need to come to grips with them because they decolorize the true inner.

And then also what I noticed is, along the way, when maybe something has come out of a firmament or something and becomes noticeable as a projected thought that’s coming down into life, that along the way it’s as if there is a spirit energy flow. And you could say that spirit energy flow is something that rides the in-breath and the out-breath, per se, and in riding the in-breath and the out-breath per se there are all kinds of things that can touch it, both coming in, as the breath is coming down, you might have a centralized aspect to yourself, but then you pick up on other things as well, as you’re coming down, because of the collective nature of consciousness. And that’s as an out-breath; and then as an in-breath you have to let go of all that.

So that’s why one can see the thought-upon thought as kind of a collective consciousness, concretized manifestation, in which the singular vibration is affected by other vibrations which clung on as you go into this kind of crash mode out-breath that concretizes. And then you come out of this concretization with the in-breath. Without the in-breath you would remain as a dense concretization.

And so then, from a prior dream, I come to know that the spirit energy breath is what I perceive to be the journey. The spirit energy invokes spiritual illusion. It does so with the up and down breath that actually does not really exist, yet that is the condition we are in. To be in manifestation, and yet to be something so much more, we have to breathe an in-breath, out-breath, in-breath, out-breath.

And yet the beginning and the end is all there is, and that beginning and that end is actually captured in the bliss of the in-breath to out-breath interval, and the sweet longing of the out-breath to in-breath interval – and that’s where there is an all-abiding stillness, in that brief interval moment. That’s where the stillness is.

Yet the spirit energy, the energy that goes up and down as breath, is where the spiritual illusions lie, and where the ideas that I am on a journey and that I awaken, that’s where that comes from, in terms of my sense of something going on.

When the up and down condition is removed, nothing exists. There’s just the stillness of the beginning and the end, the interval point on the down breath and on the up breath, the turning point. And then we fight all this other in between that we drill down, and that’s how we live it, in terms of our sleep dream. This is kind of like a presentation of the big picture of it all in terms of a set system, so to speak. And then, how do we handle that? Not very well, of course.

55osRemember the time when everything was proceeding smoothly, and then there was a sudden realization that everything was going smoothly – and then it fell apart? We’ve all experienced this, in one situation or another, and it points out the difference between being with what we are doing, energetically, and thinking we are doing something on our own. It’s the difference between the personal and the universal. And, from our experience of such a moment, we know which felt better, which felt more connected, and which felt more alive.

John: Now, the comparable dream, more from an outer way of portraying it, that says the same thing, is in the dream I find myself kind of like in a room, like you would have people walking around in a room, just commiserating a bit, you know, but at the same time being able to pay attention – but not necessarily in a set, organized way, where you pay attention to maybe something that a person is saying, and yet you still have your natural free flow.

The way the dream starts off is I seem to be connecting, or talking, in a way that has everybody’s attention, in terms of hitting a common thread, in relationship to what permeates. And I don’t really remember exactly what I’m saying to begin with, because I’m in a zone with that kind of intertwined flow.

But then there comes a point where, as I’m going out, I notice and start paying attention to what I am doing, as opposed to this just being a flow coming through me, and so I start then to weigh the consequences of whatever it is, and however it is, I’m coming across in terms of projection.

So as soon as I get into looking at things from the standpoint of a mind-upon-mind, or thought-upon-thought, projection, I end up then instead of talking in terms of heart, I talk in terms of thoughts. And, when I start talking in terms of thoughts, I’m talking in terms of projection – as opposed to connectivity.

And what I notice is that immediately what had been intertwined and was really being lifted up, is now going the other way, and that there is a demagnifying that is occurring, because of a common thread getting lost . Because this getting into the realm of bifurcation, the realm in which you have protocols, and due process, and conceptualizations that vary, and will continually vary, that are just introduced as projected formats.

But what connects, and what permeates, and what sweeps up, and what makes the difference, and what shifts life, and what brings in a commonality is a quality of heartfulness that is, in a way, something that in its more pure essence transcends the time and space of the situation. And the more that that comes into the time and space of the situation, the more it falls into the plane of thought-upon-thought. And, when that happens, what would have and had been kind of a common-threaded intertwinement, gets bifurcated, and you tend to have a slow undermining.

That’s when it becomes something like getting lost in the idea that you can solve a problem within the parameters of the same mind that created it. And when you get caught in something like that, it’s an iffy, iffy game of projection.

What makes the difference is the intangible, kind of outside of time and space, connectivity that we all carry as a quality somewhere in the essence of our being. It’s the touching of that. It’s the recognition of that. That’s the determinant.

And recognizing that there is a connection that can be found, and is there, that’s undeniable, that isn’t a matter of opinion this way or that way, and that’s what makes the difference that causes something to shift. That’s kind of a feeling quality, or something, maybe even of the aspect in which the thought is switched a little bit to going from head to heart.

I am shown that conducting one’s self in a natural connective way, that permeates into life, whether you use the word oneness; its essence on essence. That’s the common thread for relatability purposes, and that’s what everyone is touched by somewhere inside themselves. Or, everyone embraces this, as a form of beingness, which pulls everything together.

In the dream I saw that ideas about protocol, regulations, due process, that which is set forth in manmade ways, no matter how much sense that that can appear to make, that just creates separation. It’s not what leads to cohesion. It kind of is a this and that kind of setting, or situating. In other words, insightfulness without the common connection demagnifies. It doesn’t permeate. It’s conditional, in some way or another, while the other transcends the time and space; it kind of is a linkage beyond words.

It was the way that something was touched within that’s the more guiding determinant, because it’s the heart that counts, as it’s in its long lasting way of consciousness that ebbs and flows.

So the deep meaning is that what I am being shown in the dream has to do with the difference between touching an intertwined inner heartfelt commonality, as being what is real, and needed, not the thought-oriented projections, no matter how eloquent they seem, or how they’re concretized as something you have to contend with. It’s the heart that brings the awareness, or the flow, going through and breaking beyond, and not being bound by the concretized thought-upon-thought. Or reaches the wholeness within, as a masculine way of saying it, and this is always in contrast with the projected thoughts-upon-thoughts which demagnify, bifurcate, and defuse the common aliveness we share.

trompe-arch1Sometimes the images in our dreams get straight to the point: here, a barrier has been erected in front of a doorway.  So, where there was a flow, where movement was possible, it has now become difficult or impossible. And because the setting is a home, or apartment, the dream is speaking of the inner life of the dreamer. So the structure that is being put up is between one aspect of the inner life and another, pointing out the resistance to what is being found, or a fear of what might be found. Still, in the dream world is the safety of finding a resolution in a natural way.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I had one of those deep dreams that was hard to pull out, so I just remember parts of it. It seemed like I think I was with you, and we had an apartment that seemed to be partly underground, or a house.

And, at some point, while we were doing something, like in one room, a repairman had come and he was fixing something up towards where our exit was – because we had to go up to exit. Although what he had done was pretty, he had put this really thick board with bolts across there.

I’m then mentioning to you that I don’t think I can get out now, because I go over and I have to jump up to even grab onto it. And then I try to see if I can haul myself up, and roll over, and that would be how I’d have to get out – and that doesn’t seem like a way to really kind of come in and out of the house. He needed to build it so that there was more space, or not quite so high.

And then I can’t remember the other things that were going on in the apartment, but it felt like in the background I could see somebody that was holding… it’s like they were holding energy, in a particular way. And the conclusion I drew from this was that change is a lot harder than one thinks, because of these traits that get kind of held strongly. And that was the most I could tell you about the dream.

John: Well, it seemed like you had an image, in terms of whatever was built, or constructed, as an outer idea, it was done in such a way so that you couldn’t come and go freely, right?

Jeane: Mm huh.

John: And so what you’re describing is something that’s put in place based upon ideas, concept protocols, essentially projected ideas, of the time. And what you’re finding is that what has occurred is in the way of a natural flow. Isn’t that what you’re describing?

Jeane: Yes.

John: And so your dream is attempting to direct your attention to the intertwined, connective flow, because that’s where your heart can naturally relate, and that’s where you find yourself to be at ease. And your not at ease having to try to contend with the conceptualizations, and the mannerisms, and projections, that are in the environment around you.

Now what you’ve done, with this dream, is you’ve taken the thought-upon-thought, and you recognize that that becomes concretized, in terms of the outer, and that certain man-acted-upon, or projected, thoughts-upon-thoughts have led to a structure, or a barrier, that makes it difficult to come and go. And the coming and going that you’re talking about is a coming and going in terms of the inner essence of yourself.

And so these concretized thought-upon-thoughts have imposed barriers to the natural free flow of a quality of heartfulness in and of yourself. In other words, your dream jumps you ahead from the standpoint that, in the physical, what you see around you is an accentuation of thought-upon-thought, or in the mindfulness of projection, concretized into the outer.

And your dream is jumping you ahead to a sensibility that comes from the heart, that knows that that sort of thing is in the way, and just needs to be set aside. That’s an interesting dream, right?
