If we wanted to make a better recipe, we would begin by changing the combination, and the amounts, of the ingredients. If we were to try to fix the dish after it came out of the oven, we might salvage that one instance, but the recipe would still be flawed. In life, we want to take the same approach to change: we want to elevate our inner energies so that what happens around us is an improvement, and happens differently, rather than always trying to put a bandage on the same problems once they have manifested.

Jeane: I wish I remembered more detail of my dreams last night. But I just remember like the core part of it. And in the core part of the dream, it’s as though I’ve been taken to another planet at times. And sometimes I’m on that planet, and sometimes I’m on a spaceship.
And, at one point, it’s like I go into a room on the spaceship where I guess they don’t have me as much under control as they want me to be. And there is first one person and then a second person who are almost kind of gigantic and somewhat alien, and other times they can look more human. And they want to intimidate me, or bully me, or do something, but I actually have a certain power within me where, not only I can stop them, but I can defeat them.
And so I just kind of demonstrate enough of that so they back off, so that they’ll leave me alone. And then I’m kind of exploring how to use that a little bit, just like, what’s that about? And that’s really the the only part of the dream I remember very clearly. I’ll just have to see if more of it comes back.
John: I’m not sure what it means, because what you’re depicting is something that’s transcendent, or off the ground, like a spaceship, or something that goes to another planet. And yet you find yourself, deep within, as being okay with doing that.
And then, in the surroundings, whatever is in the surroundings that is part of the transcendent, that is just a nuisance. In other words, it doesn’t help the situation any. You hold to something that’s important in a beyond the beyond, but all of the aspects on such a journey, don’t do anything for you because they are ungrounded, or something.
Maybe what you’re saying is, because there’s a part of you that is drawn to a beyond of the beyond inside of yourself. And the idea that there is something going along with it, and that’s something that’s in the spaceship with you, or trying to be at the planet of yonder and hilt, doesn’t feel right to you, is something that obstructs. Maybe what you’re saying is that is out of place, that’s where you get into spiritual illusion, in that you’re trying to accommodate and take both with you.
But that component, or part, is something that stays as a quality of manifestation; you don’t bring manifestation into the equation, you instead go to a depth within. And – I see what you’re doing – and manifestation is meant to be a reflective counterpart. And, in that regard, the inner and the outer, make sense.
In other words, the question, the theme and the question yesterday had to do with the importance of a process in which your attention is placed on the outer. And the rationale for placing attention upon the outer is to alleviate the pain of things in your environment, to essentially figure out how to sort something out, or let go, by maintaining that sort of outer orientation.
And it didn’t ring right to me. In fact, there’s a person who gave a talk like that, and I was listening to it yesterday, because I’ve always believed that the change works in the opposite direction, where the inner awakens, and, as the inner awakens, the outer reflective changes. But the outer reflective, and what your dream is highlighting, or pointing out more poignantly, is that the outer reflective is a portrayal, of where things are at, in terms of inner awareness.
And so when the inner awareness is exemplified, the outer reflective corresponds, as a reflective that is polished to that. It kind of happens by way of natural evolution. But you don’t go into the outer to try to straighten something out. In other words, you don’t go into the reflection of things, nor do you try to take on the reflection of things, you instead accentuate what you know, and can feel, as a depth within. And when you do that, that becomes a heart, and a quality, by which things awaken.
It’s kind of hard to portray it in our puritanical, linear way, but it’s as if the inner, the access of something to an inner, causes the consequences to reflect in an outer that makes the difference, that changes things. But they don’t change things through doing anything, in particular, they change things only by having caught up with the stillness from within – the inner being the modality.
So what you had as a dream is you had something that didn’t make any sense, in order to help to see, and feel, what does make sense. You had a sense inside of yourself of something of a deep, deep inner depth. And you had a conceptualization as if the inner is yonder and hilt, and that because there is the outer reflection of things that, somehow or another, the opening up on the inner takes the outer reflection of things with it.
It doesn’t work quite like that, no, because that would still be harkening to the idea that there is something about working with the outer to the inner. The inner creates the change, or is reached within as as stillness. The degree to which you are unable to reach the stillness within is reflected in the outer as the vibrations that still remain, and the images, then, that correspond. And that is what manifestation is about.
And so as you come to a quieter place, and a deeper place, from within, the reflection of that corresponds in terms of the outer, the outer that is, again, still teaching you in a letting go kind of capacity. You do not go and try to do anything in the outer, as if that will open the inner up. No, you take, and you observe, the degree to which you’re experiencing something as the stillness within, you can observe that, you can be the eyes and ears of kind of denoting that by the way the reflective outer is around you.
And you don’t take and try to alter, or change, the reflective outer because it’s not an outer to inner. The outer is reflective. It is an illusion. It isn’t real. It has to do with the energetic of things, densed into an image that then has an apparent life force about it, that is illusory. Yet that illusoriness falls away as the inner stillness awakens. So what you had was a dream that dreamt in terms of this as a kind of bifurcation. I mean, it had to have left you feeling awkward, because it wasn’t quite right. But you weren’t sorting it out.
