There are many ways to think about being in a flow. Sometimes it means we don’t intrude upon, or impose our energetic print on, something – while it is unfolding. In other words, we don’t determine the unfolding for something else. Yet, other times, we can be in the flow by doing what is energetically urged upon us, or made possible, in a given moment. The skill is in knowing how to read the energies. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: This is a very bizarre sleep dream, but it does make sense. In the dream, I’m in a room and have work to do with a person who is intense in his nature, intense with a certain focus, because he’s got an agenda to get it done; that kind of intensity. And thus, he’s pulling that out of me.
At this time, I don’t realize there are three other beds in there, actually there are four beds, but there are three others, and three of those beds, the people that are there are under the covers, you don’t even know that they’re there. At this time, I don’t even know that they’re there, all I notice is the guy in the fourth bed is sitting up and he is trying to direct the energy however he wants to direct it, and doesn’t like the intensity by which whatever’s going on, so he turns the TV on.
Now, this is like a college room or something. And he’s a new guy. And then there are three others that are also new, but brand, brand new. And he’s new. And we’re the old timers. So because he doesn’t like what we’re doing, he turns on the TV. And I know from a depth inside that what Robert and I are doing needs to unfold and that this is the time for that to happen.
So I hold the focus. And in holding the focus, I go over and turn the TV off. I’m not sure if this is going to start a fight, or a bigger problem, or not. What this does is it sets in motion something in which these other three get up. I didn’t even realize that they were there. In my case, I don’t foresee a problem, or I’m not going to allow myself to see it as a problem, what I did, because I trust in the flow, and am maintaining this flow, to follow it to wherever it goes – because it’s what’s in the atmosphere. And the other, that equivocated, is a misalignment. That other that equivocated is basically a very powerful force.
Suddenly, to my surprise, those, like I say, in the other beds, who have come to this campus, and we’re really groggy and went to sleep, one of them is a woman. And for some reason I greet her with a hug, and her chin hits my shoulder and lipstick gets on my shirt. She suggests several ways to get it out, and I realize she has to do it her way.
So I say to her, so I guess what you’re trying to tell me is I should just take off the shirt, give it to you, and see what happens. In other words, she does whatever she does to get the lipstick out. In other words, this is an approach that’s working with the energetics in all regards, which I have to go along with because they’re important to the flow of life.
And the meaning is, and we should put it together, that to begin with what jars or sets in motion something is like a mannerism. And the mannerism can have a kind of alpha quality to it, like my reaction to things is a bit alpha. But the truer influence is deep within myself. And deep within myself is kind of an inner history to all that exists.
To recognize and accept the inner focus needing to come out, while at the same time accommodating others in life, does not get in the way of what is intended. You step back and watch to see what is intended. In other words, you don’t go out there and try to impose something and fight something. And what unfolds is just there to be beheld. Such watching is a letting go so that what is meant to unfold finds the flow – which is what you pointed out, it finds a flow and runs its course.
