Ancient peoples understood the energies of different places. They would travel great distances to have processes in places that promoted healing, or that allowed certain greater mental clarity, or that enhanced their clairvoyance. Every space and every place has its effects on us, the idea is to detect those effects upon us, so we have a better understanding of what is the place, and what is us. Then we can use those effects to our benefit, or we can minimize the effects that we don’t want.

John: There’s a certain bliss in the innocence of being able to be in life in a way in which you can free-flow without there having to be any responsibility, or attention, generated, in any capacity, in terms of how one is.
When a definition is put in place, and definitions are put in place heavily in terms of how things are in this atmosphere, when those definitions don’t touch us we can soar in a certain kind of exaltation within. And that exaltation then can bleed out in its subtle way. And there is a sense of appreciation, as if it lightens something in some capacity, in some unknown way.
Well, now something has changed, in which that has to be found again because, right off the bat, it’s like we have come into an atmosphere where what is taken into account about us has been, over the course of time, and in the course of what has happened inside of us, as we have grown in other ways, when we now come back into this atmosphere, when we now come into this part of ourself, because the outer is just reflecting a part of ourself that has come and emerged more, we now find that we’re in a kind of reverb. We’re in a kind of unsettlement. We’re in a kind of vortex of things, in which what is occurring is, well, it’s something that the spaciality that had normally been there, isn’t there, and it has to be found again.
And so we’re talking about a stillness, now, but a stillness that isn’t a stillness that one develops in terms of a subtleness, but they have developed as a dexterity within. That dexterity that they’ve developed within, that is a subtleness, is still a substance. And, now, that substance has leaked out in terms of how it is perceived, or seen to be, in relationship to the environment, and other parts of ourselves in this environment.
The way that it is perceived to be is all wrong, because there’s so much more. And we have to go inside. we have to find that stillness, we have to find that quiet space, so that we can then be open again in a capacity that opens up the environment all over again.
Why is that important? The environment that we are in, that lacks a particular kind of opening in which something keeps reverbing as an aspect that oppresses, in some fashion, in terms of the freedom, is an environment in which the deception of everything here predominates in some secretive way.
There’s all kinds of ways that this stuff predominates. And it has to be overcome by a quality of being that is able to look at it, laugh at it, joke about it, and cause it to laugh at itself. As long as it feels that it can be righteous and carry on, in some capacity, there is going to be this struggle. And this struggle is first of all recognized inside of ourselves, which has caught up with this, and then it is recognized in terms of the outer, which is the reflection of what we have caught up with. So it is an interesting chemistry that’s evolved. We’re no longer as silent, and as hidden, and as cradle-like as we were before.
