We speak of higher states often, and there are many who aim toward Nirvana, utopia, or enlightenment. Yet, sometimes, a state of equilibrium would be an excellent achievement. Life comes at us more quickly every day, or seems to, and it means our systems are always commandeering energy to sort out what we are dealing with in an effort to rebalance everything. And new challenges often require new solutions, which means it may take us longer than usual to work through. It can help if, in these moments, we remember to trust our systems – they are doing the work – and not to always put the burden on our brains to figure it out.

Jeane: So I neither meditated nor slept well last night. And it felt like my dreams felt really chaotic, and it’s almost like the last dream I had just epitomizes it because it feels like, in the dream, it’s like I wake up to an alarm. And it’s dark out, and I can hear people rushing about, but I can’t really see what’s going on. That’s just what last night felt like to me.
John: Well, you’re kind of describing a sense of maze of things, in which, in the maze of things you haven’t yet sorted yourself out. And that creates a kind of surrounding delirium.
It was kind of the effect, so to speak, on an initial level of what took place yesterday. I found myself noting it to be kind of Leila, meaning that it was a play with an effect that had a bit of a contrivance to it. But it was enough for each person to find, and see, for themselves.
The only hint of that was when Dean said that the idea of feeling tends to be something that’s oriented in a personal context way. And that the idea of witnessing that that had to be something in order for it to have a flow amidst everything, from out of the chaos, that had to be something that connected to a deeper inner depth that you didn’t witness it in its simplistic outer, you witnessed in its deeper inner depth in terms of what is really going on, pre the fact.
And so it belied the fact that it was anything of any consequence really going on, in the outer, other than the letting go of the way a person overly feels things. And that the witnessing, it was the integral action and a witnessing that goes to something more in terms of the greater overallness that comes from within.
The effect you were left with, which was the effect that most people were left with, was they haven’t sorted that out yet. It was something that defied the logic of how they saw the path working; defied the logic. And so that hasn’t yet shifted.
And there’s a whole bunch of that sort of thing going on, in which the currency of things is being put into question. The theme of the program has been that when you compare, so to speak, two sides, and you speak of it as East and West, then in the West there has been a sort of soberness that has added something, but has been rejected by the East.
And then in the East there has been something that has gotten too social or something, and, like Lemuria, fell apart, because it lacked its quality of individuality that was able to hold on to something above the midst of things.
So what your dream was, you hadn’t sorted any of this out yet, you were just looking at this as a kind of chaotic maze. And that’s how most spiritual paths are viewed by the pragmatist, who is looking from the outside in, and it has to be viewed more from a top down approach.
