Energy is intelligence, and, if we connect to an energy, we can receive its intelligence – if we are able to translate it. This may sound far out, but we do it all the time. When we major in a subject at college, or pursue a passion, we build, over time, connections into that domain of energy. That’s why great insights come to those who dedicate their lives to a subject – they built the connections, and learned how to translate the intelligence. It’s important to be aware of this mechanism, because it’s the way everything works. But, more importantly, it works this way so that the higher parts of creation can guide us as we navigate through an alien world.

John: In my dream I just somehow or another found myself having to realize that the wholeness has to do with something that’s outside of all thought whatsoever. And so, instead of the usual context of taking and pulling out a meditation dream, still using reflective forces, so to speak, of something that I am able to glean from the other side, or identify beyond the dream imagery, I instead went into a space where I was just responding to the flow, not struggling to understand the meaning through a focus and attention.
It was just automatically there, and it was almost like glimpse after glimpse after glimpse, and each one was a sentence in and of itself of what was going on; no thought involved. It was just like everything was flash, flash, flash, flash, and each flash said what it said, nothing more. Next flash, something more, next flash, something more.
And when it was like that there was no thought involved, per se, of a focus and attention of trying to understand the image. The image spoke. The image was like a language, a direct language. There wasn’t the need to zoom in, or tunnel down, to get what was behind it. It was just there, and that is a coming from a knowingness, a wholeness, that is correlated to the stillness at the top, where the in-breath turns to the out-breath.
There it’s direct guidance, not something you fumble with to catch up with the best that you can – and I can’t put a context on it. I found myself just writing a sentence, and then writing another sentence, and writing another sentence, and not knowing even if these sentences came together and made any sense. All I knew was I was going from this, to this, to this, to this, and I didn’t even go back and re-read it, really, because to re-read it would be to try to thread it in a way that steered it so that it said something directly, in keeping with a focus and attention, in regards to an imagery that was based upon inflecting through the dream. Didn’t do that.
This was too direct, which meant that it was more in the stillness of the interval, or at least towards it more, of where the in-breath turns to the out-breath; not angelic, and not Jinn. And, when I dreamt this, that’s why I was real curious what you would dream to see if you automatically went into this new modality,however, what you did is you expressed the story of manifestation, what it’s like to be, you know, plop, in manifestation, aspiring to stare at this, and stare at that, knowing somehow or another that there had to be more, and that something more would’ve been the breaking to a stillness interval where the out-breath turns to the in-breath, which would have been infinitesimal. And, if you would’ve hit it, you would’ve been infused – but you didn’t quite let go.
Because you didn’t quite let go, you suffered. Your dream is a suffering dream. If you would’ve hit it you would’ve hit a tremendous energy. You wouldn’t have probably been able to handle it and would’ve had to fall back into that other, but that’s what you have to somehow or another be able to catch and hold onto. And you need, almost as a slingshot effect, the in-breath. But, prior to hitting that, you’re overly indulged, and still affected, and poisoned by just out-breath that’s strung out in the encompassed unfoldment of concretized matter, that is portrayed as a traveling away from God.
The other slingshots you into traveling towards God, as an in-breath, and that is the spiritual illusion side of yourself when you start doing that, because, again, you don’t really catch up with the pure light, but that sweet longing causes you to travel as far as that can possibly carry you, until you get caught up in thought-upon-thought again.
That’s why it starts off as infinitesimal, and then the thoughts come in immediately. At some point it’s more than just this infinitesimal, split second glimpse or something. It’s a little bit more, and so that quality that creates like a kind of big bang effect, imploding you towards the essence of yourself where the in-breath turns to the out-breath, you’re questing for that to happen yet. You’re sensing it.
It’s just like there’s the statement in Sufism that the watcher role is an important role. The watcher role is where it stands, and stares, and somehow or another it gets it, it gleans it. Somehow or another, in the standing and the staring, it lets go. You didn’t quite hit the letting go there.
In my dream, I hit the interval where the in-breath turns to the out-breath, and was shocked because I really wanted some sort of focus and attention, and steerage, and there was none. It just was a direct straightaway without any noodling to determine this or that.
Well, that’s what it’s like to catch up with, and to be in touch with, the true mirroring that is pouring into life before the thought-upon-thought, and beyond the angelic, which is this stillness of the in-breath to the out-breath.
And so probably my dream, my sleep dream, will get into portraying it better, but the meditation dream, for the heck of it I even labeled what it was: I said, “From another zone than mind.”
