A Catch-22

dowad2Let’s review: we are born into the physical world, we are here to do things and have processes that are not possible unless we are in the physical realms, yet we are not supposed to get involved in the physical world. That about sums it up. We are here to learn things that will be useful elsewhere; there’s no reason to fall in love with kindergarten because we are only passing through for a short while. Where we go wrong is that we make this place, and this process, our everything, when it is just a preamble for something much greater. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: For some reason, when you came to bed, it jostled me and I lost the dream I’d been going over. And, after that, the only thing I had is I had this dream that, apparently, whoever builds dams had completed building two dams.

And, as a result, I felt like there were some people that were supposed to be executed for crimes; maybe six people. And I was trying to get the president to pardon them because I felt if they went ahead and executed the people it would be like, in the olden times, when they used to kill people after they built something, as like a sacrifice for it, or however they did that in olden times.

So I was going around trying to get the president to pardon these six people, rather than have it look like we were still sacrificing people to bless things that we built.

John: Well, the reason why you suddenly couldn’t remember what you were going through was because you weren’t aware, or noticing, that you got impacted by a shock of stillness.

In other words, you were going along and you were experiencing a kind of state in which there was something in your nature that was moving about, in other words there was a ripple out of the stillness, and so out of that ripple was the dream, or was an imagery. And then all of a sudden the aspect of me coming to bed hit that, and caused that to go “poof” – because it shifted it.

And so it was like being shifted into a letting go of that, or a shifting back into a kind of a quality of stillness. And it had to have been a stillness or it would have actually shifted into some other subtle, vibratory state. And whether you would have remembered the dream images of that, or not, would have been dependent upon the degree to which you were able to retool and pull back a focus to that as a succinct kind of flow.

So what we’re talking about is a type of empathic merging, even. In other words, the larger part of it, or, I should say, the big step in it, leads to a stillness, and leading up to a stillness are similitudes; that is why when you dream something, I can dream a corollary, and vice versa, because there is an intertwined connectivity.

And if there is a quality in which something gets hit by a stillness, or a letting go, and that is going on as a mannerism, in other words, there is a jumping through a veil, or going through the door, so to speak, into a nothingness or a stillness. And, you can’t have that stillness if there is anything going on; there comes a time when you can just let go of things. If you can truly, truly let go of things, you can experience the stillness.

In the second part of the dream, it’s pointed out, it is taking the principle of “die before you die,” and showing it to you from the perspective of why it is that the friend slays the friend. You build something, you’re doing something in the outer; and whenever you’re doing something in the outer, your attention is in the outer. And when your attention is in the outer,  your heart is going into that as an outer quality environment.

And so when you’re relying on that to volley around, and vie for the heart, so to speak, because your heart goes into it, then you are in a projection. And when you’re in a projection, you are affected by things, your senses are affected. You are play acting that which is imaginative of the collective in its unrealness – as if it has something to offer.

And so your dream is telling you that whenever you build something, what happens? You have to be destroyed, right? It’s a Catch 22: those who try to build something have to be destroyed. That’s a very cute way of saying it. In other words, the masculine would not probably say that, the feminine would, a feminine that catches up with the quality of the greater depth meaningfulness of a stillness, will recognize the fact that everything that is built has to be destroyed – because the identification to anything and everything that is built results in something then that has gotten in the way of a wholeness.

And so, if your true self is a wholeness, that means that which has gotten in the way is going to have to be destroyed. Isn’t that interesting? And you’re trying to pardon it, because you’d like to keep up the doingness. It’s hard to let go. There’s always something that one likes to do.

So, the scenario for this aspect of dreaming is the recognition of the fact that what we go through, where we identify, how we perceive, including our dreams and the reflections of the dreams, which is another reality being created, only this time in terms of something that is rising up and happening in what we call our dream sense, because if it was in the outer we actually act like it has more realness to it. And yet the outer is still the real because it’s the collective imaginations and actions put into a manifested form, a collected manifested form in the dream, it still has not yet necessarily been brought through.

You were trying to bring it through, in the dream, but it’s still reflective, and it still is a contamination, the dream is still a contamination, thus it’s the burning off of the dross, it’s the living out of that dross by putting it into the dream. And the burning off of the dross causes a result in which, if you were to truly burn off all the dross of whatever can inflect, you would go into a stillness.
