Why is necessity the mother of invention? Because a true need brings energetic potency to our ability to fetch intelligence from our energetic connections. The answer can come to us when our petition, or prayer, for it is strong enough, or potent enough. This can be true for an answer to a problem, or for the discovery of something never seen here before. Our intelligence comes from energetic connections – and our need calls it in. But, of course, the universe is designed to give us support for our struggle toward our human purpose, not to help us become rich and famous. The reasons why we have a need for something make all the difference in terms of what kind of response we get to our request.

John: So, in my sleep, I too was looking at all of the various variables, and ways in which a person goes counter to the mind senses, or the action projective modality of things, how you could step back from it and find some sort of stillness echo, or some sort of quality that arises within you to service a question, so to speak, that you carry as a need.
Most of the time a person takes and they have something that they feel makes sense, in terms of living in the outer, and you just embark on it. But if you listen really quietly there are a whole bunch of things that you don’t embark upon, or can’t do, that aren’t coming from, and aren’t properly servicing, a need, but are only servicing some sort of mind imagination of the senses, and with the senses. And so this is kind of like echoing you to recognize that there is something more going on, that something more being something that’s outside of the in-breath and the out-breath.
So my meditation dream came out of that very quickly with some interesting insight, and then in my sleep dream I appear to be going really deep inside, going over and over the catching up with the need, from which there is a beckoning down of a grace, and a stillness. And, at one point in my sleep dream, it’s like a strange sound goes off, like an alarm or bell or something, and it brings me to the surface – but I don’t have anything there, and so I fall back in. And so when I woke up this morning this stuff was sitting there just ready to pop out, and, had I responded to that, the other would’ve infused its way through.
It’s because within the stillness is the absorption of all of our needs. That’s what the stillness is all about. It’s when we go off tangentially, thinking that we have to fulfill something, that we get caught in the reflective and, therefore, are in some aspected in-breath and out-breath modality.
So my sleep dream kind of corresponds to what you did, in that I just kind of go through example after example. Basically the way I put it, in terms of trying to grasp what’s going on, is I went over again and again at how letting go to what appears to be a weaker condition, at some particular point there can be like a type of weakness, or going over the top, and when it gets like that, instead of you just falling into something, that’s when it can get into the indulgence of your poverty as opposed to just being in that state as a need.
So looking at what I would call in a weaker condition, for not knowing how else to call it, and in order to point out that it’s not something that one does with a sense of kind of trying to control a streamlining, you do it with a graciousness, not with a mentality of trying to make something happen. When it’s like that it’s an aspected, still presence, and the systematic inner effect draws the consciousness down for connective purposes.
So I go through examples. As an example, inside one’s self there’s a special insight or consciousness a person has when he is naturally resigned – and that is often times deemed to be kind of a stillness, weakened condition, in that there’s kind of a humble dignity because the person’s not putting on airs and is near to their soul, or their true need, which is this stillness place somewhere.
Another example is this quality resides, in terms of a person whose soul is racing towards a completion, as you tend to see, for example, in advanced old age. In other words, when a person is preparing, so to speak, or has the need to ready themselves to go to another loci of the soul as an abode. And so it’s almost as if whatever one is holding onto here, there is kind of an added sense to just let go of it because something is about to happen.
Often times a person may seem more feeble-minded, and forgetful, and everything else, but it’s coming from a greater echo of a soul that’s ready to transition to somewhere else. And to see that, and to note that, and to really know how to look at that, is to recognize that there is a quality of need being served.
Another example is a person who is truly humble and gracious, invokes grace as a stillness gift; or, put another way, to serve the need of life is to awaken an inner guidance. The essence needs our need, so however we touch it there is a specialness quickened within.
And that happens when you take and go on even Hail Mary missions, you know, crusades or whatever it is, or ideas towards what there is as a peace or need in life. You do draw something to you from doing that because as long as you’re doing that with a certain focus and attention – even if it’s misguided, but is sincere – it draws something to service the need.
It doesn’t mean it’ll work, but it does still draw something. Whether it’s enough to contend with the collective is a bigger issue because the tendency is to still be trapped in some aspect of the in-breath and out-breath, and, therefore, you’re caught in the modality yet.
To not get caught in some reflective, inner vibrational thought upon the in-breath/out-breath, or both, whether you’d call it a thought, or mood, or whatever, and the sensation was with everything that could be denoted, everything that was denoted, it was like it had a negative charge, is the only way I know how to describe it, because it was toward what I am not able to reach as a stillness. Just the need to do so being invoked has a way of beckoning towards that stillness, which is a need – even though it is beyond one’s scope-ability.
