As we take our steps on our spiritual journey, it’s good to remember that we are not here to save the world. The concept of that is wonderful, and the compassion in that is noble, but it implies that we, personally, are going to do something. And that is the opposite of letting go. We let go of the idea that we are doing anything, and instead connect to the energies that actually cause everything. And by being with those energies, we actually are doing something: supporting those energies in the world for others to connect to, and benefit from – in their own way.

John: So then, in the next sleep dream, I see one black car after another turning off, in other words, it’s like making a left hand turn from a main roadway, and exiting to the left.
And the significance of this dream is, this is an image of aspect after aspect of restrictive nature that is pent up in my being falling away. In other words, if you put it in context with the other dreams, sometimes you just have to let things be, let it fall away.
Or, another way of saying it is, in this dream I’m looking at the mannerisms and pent up behavior I am interested in letting go of that poisons the heart, that causes you to react to this and react to that.
In the prior dream this had to do with accessing myself unconditionally, because this guy is me, you know, you take it into a context. You don’t take and noodle about. And, in the meditation theme, the unfoldment and flow is taken in, in stride, appreciatively. It actually isn’t hopeless. I mean if something goes on and on and on forever, in a way there can be a hopelessness to it, in terms of that vibe, or the thinking that it’s like that.
In this next dream, I learned a lot on a trip into life. It’s like this is a story now, it’s like a big unfoldment, in other words. I’ve gone out, almost like with the out-breath energy of things, I’ve gone out and I’ve done a whole bunch of things, and I’ve gotten pretty much coped out on how things kind of unfold, you know an understanding, a wised up, in other words.
So in returning home, kind of like now I’m coming back, occasions come up in which I am able to come across situations that could be done differently, or something is just not quite according to Hoyle. I have a bigger, better insight. And what I learn from this that sharing such an insight, unasked for, even when one sees that something is haywire, causes a problem. Others have to go through things in their own way.
So by knowing to leave things be that are other people’s business, I have been able to access, and gather up, the footwear of things that I’ve scattered all over the place along the path, and not have to take such excursions anymore along the way.
Thus, drive straightaway, in other words, not having to be distracted in terms of this or that, or basically the side adventures that I’m used to going on to work this out, or that out, in terms of my outer involvement, on behalf of others in manifestation, I’m now able to leave alone because there’s a bigger picture unfolding. It doesn’t all happen simultaneously.
Every little step I take doesn’t mean someone else has to automatically take the same step right behind me immediately. What has to happen is I have to hold the space, and that things that unfold in the environments around me glean off of that, in their own way, in kind of an invisible capacity. But if I am out there going up and down, and up and down, like a yo-yo with them, then we just stay stupid and I throw away my magnetism of a consciousness.
So when I was caught up in this and that, as being on the road of intention, I was constantly sorting things out – including the karma of others. This pulled me down; to let go and adhere to an unspoken and quietly composed presence is what it is about now for me.
And then there’s the final image in that there is a more accommodated process when I do not have to do this or that, and that there’s this whole inner level that takes and sweeps and encompasses more because things are more at ease. You don’t have the needling of things. And an image that facilitates that is the image of seeing rice that has been softened to an interesting absorbent food, not that one has to eat that, but that’s the nature of rice as a process. In other words, rice is a type of food that absorbs toxins, as opposed to maybe something like bread that actually makes you toxic, turns to sugar.
Now, as kind of an addendum that doesn’t mean that this is telling me that I have to eat rice. It’s just using that as a symbolic image as a way of observing myself, in terms of how to be, or as being. You have to let the dynamic do whatever that dynamic is meant to do as an unfoldment process, or design.
