Context of Fluidity

Mark Rothko

If we look at a work of art, we may be able to see the skill that was required to bring all the different aspects together, and we might get a sense of how so many aspects just fell into perfect harmony. But such an appreciation may not tell us anything about what is at the essence of the work itself. What makes great art is when an essence is captured by the artist. Well, we can say the same about the universe we find ourselves in: we can see it, and look at the different parts, but are we connecting to the essence that it holds for us to discover?

John: So now I go to my sleep dream, or meditation dream I should say. This is a loudness that is a dumbness yet; it’s a dumbness because I already understand it, but I have to set the tone in this way, again, in order to have had the sleep dream that shows the way one is expanding one’s aura, taking into account through a going into things way. Going into the heart of others, so to speak, or into the heart of the essence of the atmosphere.

So, in the meditation dream, I’m having to locate myself energetically. Where are we? We’re actually in all things. For example, there is an image where I am across from a German, but the vibration is that of having to conduct the Japanese. In other words, discombobulated.

The question is then asked: Who am I? I’m required to denote the origin of the energetic vibration that is pulsing through me. In other words, go into the subtleness, the depth. I go through image after image in which the appearance and context are veiled. Meaning they are inclined to be seen one way, but they’re not that way.

The test is to see, at some point, if I can realize that deep within the vibration that exists, can I transmute, from the reflective sense, to the inner source? What is going on? In each instance what appears to be happening is not what is really going on. And the test was to go beyond the appearance where the issue of flow, into the outer, is being construed magnetically, or densely. Can I denote, behind the outer scenes, can I denote really what is going on in life, not to just take it literally, but to see how the innerness of things touches that?

Even though the images that reflect in the outerness of manifestation are being construed as a recreated reflection in the outer, the key to understanding this dream is to reach the point in which the inner coming into the outer association is revelationally apparent.

Now, I’m talking about a higher octave of the word revelational. If it’s revelational where you have a lightbulb moment – as if you’re in one place and something is in another place – and you suddenly get the memo. That is a type of revelation. That’s where things kind of start.

But the kind of revelation that I’m talking about now is a revelation in which some part of yourself is permeated across and is taken into the atmosphere. And that is what is working, that is what is causing the reflections of things to be however they are. And it is, as an atmosphere, as a wholeness, it is doing its thing, and no one can say that is coming from this, that, or the other. It is just the atmosphere, it’s just the overallness. In other words, the reflection in manifestation of an inner vibration of consciousness within, the sorting out, as an awakening, is the whence from which this came. Wherever that is, however that is.

So the meaning is, nothing is as it appears in the outer reflections. And the challenge of awakening to the oneness of all there is is to inflect – and again, I’m using a higher octave of the word revelation – is to cause that inner depth to be absorbed by the outer appearances. And, when it is, it has to be true to itself; it can’t go around in its separateness.

If I can do that, instead of buying into the outer appearances, as if the outer appearances are what is truly going on, as a separateness from my beingness, that’s when I’m no longer veiled from this inner vibrational beingness. That’s when it’s a oneness that is in everything.

The significance is, to come to know the unseen planes within the intertwined oneness, everything I see and do, and what happens around me in the outer, which is a bifurcated revelational reflection, it must inflect to the unseen inner depth of the greater overall inner beingness. We’re talking about an effusiveness. We’re not talking about something that goes about vaulting its opinion this way, or that way, and that all you have is stacked up positions. I’m talking about something in which all that is meant to be is in a context of fluidness. It’s also a kind of momentum. Only it’s an inner momentum, rather than an outer momentum.

A Silent Edge

images-1If we ask: who is in charge inside of us?, we may get all sorts of answers. We think it is the same “person” all the time, but is it? Who is in charge when we declare that we are going on a diet, or getting a new job, or going to the gym? And who is in charge when we eat the extra ice cream, show up for work, or hang out on the sofa again. We may believe it is still the same decider, but it isn’t: these are the many lives within. That’s why it is so important to focus on something greater than ourselves, otherwise we will constantly fall to the struggle of different agendas. For us to make our journey, we are best served if we become a team all focused on the same goals.

John: So that’s best portrayed in my second dream, in terms of how it is that you work in a deflective capacity, a capacity that causes the stillness to keep coming, or the emptiness to keep coming, across in ways that are outside of perspective, or of definition.

So, in this dream, there is a silent edge in terms of how my psyche works; silent edge. I am shown that edge in the following dream. In the dream, those parts of myself that come into my house are inclined to feel an aloneness, about me, that they do not know how to put their finger upon. So they’re studying that, they’re trying to figure it out.

And, since we’ve been gone, even though they’ve appreciated this whole quality, now they’re kind of looking at that, but they have caught up with that quality in a type of snuffing density. So it is this aloneness that is my out-of-the-blue surprise. Whenever someone has an opinion about how I am, that is when I must excel in my psyche state; a psyche state that is never what is portrayed.

So, in the dream, into my house where I am alone have come those who are curious in wanting to know what is going on. Not only are they curious, but they think they know what’s going on. So I can see that, and, however they look, I know that they are out of sync in terms of what exists. And what exists, of course, is this empty space where everything is known.

I have developed almost like a tool bag of options, and mannerisms, to contend with every perceptive occasion – as a kind of defense mechanism to a heart that has been stifled so many times by blind-sidedness and stuff like that, by tricks, by illusions, by all of this kind of gamesmanship. I can recognize the affairs, the labeling, the incidents, so to speak, in advance. I can just feel them: I’m not fooled, it troubles me. I can spot it inside my heart.

And the way it works is like this, this is the image: I line up in the backfield, inside my house now, into what is like a football game. On the other side are the dense parts that think that they have it all figured out in terms of how to contend with how something is to flow. So if I am discounted, and no one is paying attention to me, I can take the ball and penetrate the defense. I do it in my aloneness. I can feel the stillness, within, that is not being noticed in the outer.

If others suddenly pay attention to me, I look to where they aren’t looking, and that energetic comes alive. If the quarterback – I’m not necessarily the quarterback, I’m kind of the secret weapon – if the quarterback is being watched, for example, the ball won’t even be hiked to the quarterback, but it’ll be hiked to someone else on the backfield. And then as everyone tries to adjust, or shift, accordingly, the ball then gets lateraled back to the quarterback, who is now able to scramble, or do whatever else he does best, because the playbook is now all open again. In other words, constantly keeping things from being labeled, or put into parameters of manipulation.

The secret to the options is the fanfare that is being directed towards the way things are. In other words, it must be constantly deflected, because once it gets rigidified it’s stifling, it’s choking. Everyone in the backfield of the team, that is me, needs to feel a stillness of their beingness, and, when they do, the empty spaces come alive. And that which is possible is able to flow in this new kind of octave.

The effect of this is as if the other parts of myself are constantly out of sync. In the outer you never, ever, really know what is going on, so you have to keep throwing at this denser outer part of yourself, the parts that are in manifestation. You have to keep the flow that there is so much, so much bigger and more going on – that it gets it – because if it gets in sync, the silence and stillness is accentuated. If it doesn’t get in sync to that flow of a letting go, then it gets demystified. And then you get back into something that’s choking and stifling.

So what I am describing is a pent up condition that is able to access a presence within that others aren’t noticing. When they notice how I am, that is when I must shift. I can never be in the same place twice because that’s when a labeling is occurring. I am always reaching to the empty space stillness where the potentiality is wide open.

So, the key, more than anything else, is the danger, because over and over again things get swallowed up, in some fashion or another, because we live in a situation in which the odds are overwhelming in terms of the consciousness of how things are around us. So the danger of such a dilemma is if I am violated, by some energetic mannerism or another, that compromises my stillness of being, I become crazed. I become unsettled. I get tangential.

When you lose your spaciality, then you lose your freedom. Because it’s in the spaciality, the joy, the glee or something, the freedom. So what is the subtle problem? As long as I am able to free-flow in a way that isn’t definable, except as I choose to project (and that’s the danger), we have to hand through ourselves something and let this around us get it. And they will know what’s best.

The other parts of myself, which remain basic in nature and densely oriented, will not tear me down. In other words, they’ll tear me down if what I’m doing is something that is attempting to cause something to occur. I don’t cause something to occur. I instead do something that is rather different, in that what I perceive I release and let others carry from there. And if I can do that, then I’m operating in a greater capacity of myself inside of the atmosphere. But if I don’t do that, then I am struggling in the atmosphere.

Carrying a Quality

5rfoadWe all have experienced lighting up a room when we are in a good mood, or bringing everyone down when we are in a bad mood. That’s life, we’re human. But the energetic state we are in does have an effect on our surroundings, including other people and other living things, depending on the energetic potency of what we are going through. Still, it’s important to realize that we can also be in control of what we radiate, through our intentions and choices, and thereby offer something finer into the world. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: It’s interesting to have to be confronted with something like this because you could say that, when we were down here before, we had our own little world that we could hide in.

And that world was so intriguing, to those that were properly paying attention, that they were able to be touched by that. And they were able to appreciate that. It was something sweet and nice about that, it kind of had a tendency to break up certain ruffled-ness that existed, without challenging it, or causing it to have to take itself too seriously.

In other words, this is a kind of psychology, of the universe, in which when something gets exposed can it accept what it has to see, and how it has to be? Can it accept that? It is so used to getting its way, by working behind the scenes of things, and thinking that it has pulled off whatever it needs to pull off, in its opinion, in its separateness.

And the mannerism and the nuance that we’re in is in breaking the bubble. Now, when we came down here, what we have found is that everything has gotten into a kind of rigidity, or stifling-ness again. In other words, certain mannerisms have gotten hold. It’s an aspect of the density of things; there is an aspect that’s even worse than before, that’s slightly worse than before. It’s almost as if a certain freedom has gotten lost in terms of the atmosphere, or the ethers.

There is a vibrational infringement that requires a going deeper into a kind of stillness that has to now re-permeate, and spread itself out, to grow and effuse itself out. And this works invisibly. This doesn’t work in terms of the black-and-white objectivity of things that are here. It works in terms of something being able to go through the black-and-white objectivity of the things that are here that couldn’t go through before. And it is kind of our responsibility to help facilitate that as the modality that needs to diffuse. Until we are able to do that, the atmosphere here is going to be stifling in some regard or another.

So the theme of the dreaming is about density and subtleness. And the theme of the dreaming is about aspects of inner coming into outer. There is a way of taking and going into an innerness that can leave the outerness in a particular fashion, in which one isn’t dealing with it and one isn’t addressing it.

The teaching schematic that we’re under is, how is it that one deals with the outerness, when you bring the energy of something in a depth inside yourself back down into life? How do you do that? You don’t do that by trying to create a shift, and a change, this way or that way. You have to do it in terms of quickening a vibration, or causing a vibration, as an atmosphere, to come across, so that within the atmosphere is a quality of a knowingness that naturally permeates and goes invisibly in to how it needs to be, and how it needs to go.

In other words, this is the secret in terms of coming back down into life. In other words, you go up into light, and then when you come back into the world you don’t dumb yourself down by the world, you instead carry the quality of something deep inside that now permeates out and touches things. And so, if you have to say something, if you have to do something, what you are doing is done with the intent of causing this to permeate, not with the intent of moving this over here, and that over there, in order to cause an outer quality change, by way of the physicality.

The physicality changes by way of atmosphere. And if one has to do some things in the outer, that appear to be participating in the outer, it better be with this atmosphere as the predominant characteristic – because if the attention is upon moving things this way, or that way, in order to create a better this, or that, or the other, that is a noticeability that is going to cause a problem. That is nothing more than rearranging deck chairs of things.

So the challenge is in the causing of something to continue to blow the mind of all of the rigidities that have come back into a sequence again.
