In the Interval

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.
