The Essence Within

r4G3We could say that any understanding of the universe, and its greater purposes, is on a need-to-know basis. First, we can see clearly that flora and fauna are not trying to solve the meaning of life – they live life. But we humans are different, and we are designed and coded to seek to understand our purpose. That is the journey we are meant to make. And, if we make that journey as a service to what created us, rather than an ego boost, we will attract and connect to the intelligences that will show us the way forward. In this way, the universe is a system that rewards those who choose to be part of its plan and unfolding.

John: Now I tell a long story. I have this really long story about this. It’s a nice little dream story.

In this dream, I am the new guy in town. My reputation of what I am supposed to be, or represent, seems to proceed me. And so, in this town, there’s the town folk and hidden in the woodwork of things are all kinds of bugs, animal-like bugs that almost have a human quality aliveness to them.

And they’re all dormant. They’re all hanging back. They’re not being bugs, in other words. Let’s put it this way: not only are they acting real good, but you don’t even notice them. And the locals in this town are having an election, and, because somehow or another there’s some expectation about me, part of this election has to do with being able to stand up in the front and sing.

So everyone is there. And their expectations in regards to me are way out there, as I am now supposed to, so to speak, sing. And however it is I sing, supposedly indicates something. And so before going out there, it’s like I go through, inside of myself, what it is that I could possibly sing. There’s all kinds of possibilities, but I’m not really sure, so I just kind of leave it be. And I figure, okay, I’ll do it spontaneously.

So when it’s my turn to sing, I can’t think of a single one. And so I fall back onto some little simple, trite, ditty. And I sing: “This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine.” Kind of an old, old song.

It is a song that I was compelled to sing long ago. This is a flashback now. I was compelled to sing this song, long ago, when I was coming to the process, and I came before a teacher, and the teacher, because he excelled in this particular area himself of being able to feel the vibrations through music and sound in the airwaves, he made everybody sing a song.

And so when it came to be my turn, that was the song I sang. And, when I was through, I looked at the teacher and he had tears in his eyes. And, of course, when I sang I closed my eyes and did the best I could, which wasn’t my thing. And so I see the tears in his eyes, and I go: how did I do? Then I said, “Was it that bad?” And he said, “Yes.”

But he saw what he saw that caused him to have tears in his eyes. And if that were a qualification for anything, in terms of how it needed to be, it certainly didn’t seem to affect what he did because I was selected, and initiated, by him, into the secretive techniques of Raj yoga.

So now it’s as if everything has come full circle. I’m up there and can feel the expectation – only this time it’s reversed. There’s the expectation placed upon me that is so loud that my mind goes blank. So I sing this little song, and I even forget the words. It’s kind of like in the design that it’s hidden like that.

And when I am done, chaos goes rampant. All the bugs and wood cutters come out and start acting up. Up until that point in time they were staying in their shells, and they’re hidden. So, as I’m walking along and all of this is going on, I see the sneer of one of these bugs – who sees no reason to not be just outright brazen, because obviously there was an apprehension of what I was about, and now they have seen that I’m not a threat to them.

You might say that we’re in a situation, in the world there, in this town, in which everything is flushed out into the open. I go up to this guy, kind of grab hold of him, and say, “Are you sure you know what you are doing? You expected me to be able to sing, or to come across in a particular way. What was the upside for me to come across that way? Do you really think that is the only song I knew? A trite, simple song, sung in a simpleton way?”

Meaning: I knew Leela long ago, that’s the divine play. And one of the outer conduct practices, that I came to ponder and look at, had to do with how you handle things as they were occurring in the outer.

It is said that there are three ways to deal with a problem in manifestation. The first way is you see the problem before it affects things and you take steps to deal in advance with the problem, so that it never really becomes that big of an issue.

The second is you deal with the problem while it is happening, and that’s where half of the people can see it, and half of the people can’t.

And the third is you wait to where everybody can see it. Other words, you notice the problem, you could do something about it, but no, you go stupid. You step back. You do nothing. You wait. Eventually the problem gets so bad that even those that are the most unsophisticated and immature, everyone, sees the problem. It stinks up the whole place.

When the rot is so great, and so widespread, that everyone gets it, you act, and you act with precision. No one questions whether your actions are right or wrong, because everyone knows what the problem is. And so when something is, then, effectuating itself upon whatever the issue is, they don’t sit and throw arrows and barbs at you because they are disgusted already in terms of the fact that this is such a problem.

They all can now see it because it’s as if the veils, that we’ve put in place in relationship to things, have been lifted. And then the consciousness comes into life as it is needed. That is a consciousness of awakening that is hidden, so to speak, by the Creator, purposely. The quality opens up from the top down, not from the bottom up. Meaning when it’s from the top down there are veils in place that kind of keep things that way.

We do not know how to see beyond the obvious. Everything that is rubbed in our faces is taken to be real. So, as a humanity, we have forgotten what divine revelation is about. The one being, of which we are all part, is an essence embedded within each of us.
