It is useful to remember that we are all the characters in our dreams. Here we have a good example, where the dreamer sees himself, at his current age, being bothered by a younger man (another him) who is yelling, but can’t be “heard” by the person he’s looking for. This is an internal communication, and we can see this because they have a natural connection – they like each other – but that still doesn’t mean the communication is smooth. What is being pointed to is, sometimes we can’t hear, and sometimes we are too busy talking, too busy in ourselves, to allow the connection to be made.

John: And so then I have to work this out, because what we’re talking about, in your case, was a focus and attention that actually helped create a type of alignment. In my particular case, if you were to call this a focus and attention, it would be a focus and attention that’s so linear that it’s momentous-ized too waywardly, doesn’t have a lilt, or a quality, of letting things sift.
In my sleep dream, I’m sleeping in a room that I share, it’s kind of like a dorm room, although this is adults, they’re not students. And I don’t know how I got to be there. And then there’s like maybe one or two other people that sleep in the room, and there’s a sequence of rooms, and then there are other rooms where other guys hang out. I don’t know how many guys there are even.
And so a person has come into my room, whether he was looking for one of my roommates, and even my roommate is down the hall or something, way out of the way, but he’s in my room and he’s yelling loudly to make himself heard down the hallway – in my room – while I’m trying to sleep. And yet he is ignoring all of that as he’s intent on communicating from afar.
And so, in my grogginess of being asleep, I say to him, “Why don’t you go down there, he can’t hear you.” Just like the guy can’t hear him, even though he’s yelling in my room, which is not quite the truth but it’s like kind of reverse psychology.
So he leaves the room. And so when I get up, and before I’m able to leave the room, suddenly, by the door there’s this guy standing there, and I’m in the dream maybe my usual age, about 65, and I don’t know who he is. He’s a nice looking guy. I mean he’s got a lot of energy. He’s probably about 40 years old, 6’ 3”, 6’ 4”, a lot of verve, kind of in the prime of his life, and there he is. So I extend out my hand and shake his hand, and he’s got a firm handshake, and introduce myself. And he says something about liking my style, or something like that, but I mean there’s more to it than him just saying that. And so I ask, “Are you the guy that was yelling?” And he concurs and says, “Sometimes you just need to let it be.”
In other words, it was what it was. And then what happened, in the dream, is the epitome of the magnified energy: there was communication going on, didn’t need anything more needed to be said, you know he knew what he did, I knew what he did, everything was okay. I actually like the guy, he actually liked me.
But, in the dream, I continued, and I said something to the effect like, yeah, he could smash me in two seconds. And anything and everything else that I might have said just pulled the energy down, and demagnetized the thing, and created a confusion. When instead that was right at a nice point. The inflections were the inflections in a quietness that didn’t need anymore.
Or, as I said next, I keep talking, saying he could drop me in two seconds if this is what he wanted to do, and so on and so on. And everything that I kept to and kept diffusing a connective insightfulness that was just naturally there. Deep down we both liked each other, and were linked, and respected each other, and therein lied the clarity in terms of the greater unspoken wholeness.
So what is the theme? Both the meditation dream and sleep dream are about maintaining an inner energetic vibratory that communicates connectivity in a respectful, relatable, and likable way. I mean it does that, you know, because it’s holding onto a magnetism. And you hold onto that magnetism as an aspect of self-forgiveness, actually. It’s like if you don’t hold onto the magnetism, can’t make a decision, there’s a self-consciousness which isn’t quite self-forgiving properly, or holding your own something.
