We’ve all had relationships with living things: people, pets, even plants and trees in our yard. Yet even inanimate objects are made of energy that we can relate to. Sometimes we’ll have that sort of connection with an old car, or an art object, or a painting on our wall. Does that seem silly? And is it possible that such attention from us helps the car run better, or charges the art object with good feelings, or that we can draw happiness from a favorite painting? All these things are possible, and happen, depending on our awareness and intention. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: So you’re pointing out this quality of oneness in this way. In my particular case, it’s like I’m being absorbed into things, and drawn to being absorbed into things, or taking on things. Going into, taking on, seeing the vibratoriness of a greater heartfulness, or something, that does all of this.
And the seeing takes out the vibration of the heartfulness, but the expansiveness quality, that takes all of that in, can take it in to the degree to which the feeling quality is there, as opposed to some reactive or self-limiting linearity, or something.
So it’s this kind of dynamic that one’s playing with, it’s on an in-breath level. I tend to take the meditation dream and even try to apply it to what’s going on into a scenario in order to try to exude out of it the aliveness that’s embedded in it.
The meditation dream is on the same sort of subject of something with greater spaciality or capacity. In other words, to begin with, the way this sort of thing starts is, I’m able to kind of perceive an object in the distance. And I notice that it has kind of a bit of a spiral, maybe Space Needle look to it, in the distance. And so, in that regard, it’s intriguing.
But to begin with, that’s the most of it is just kind of a curiosity item. But the more I come closer to it, out of curiosity, the more I realize that I’m able to make out that the object, first of all, it draws you in. Second, it has a quality about it that needs an embracing with a greater capacity. It’s actually kind of working with two colors simultaneously, which is really interesting, because the object is either green or red – and I can’t tell you for sure because it seems to have switched, or changed, when I get real close.
But the dilemma is, even though I knew it was green and red, was the features: I can’t tell you whether it was green turning to red, or red turning to green, or maybe both ways somehow. What I do know is that whatever undulations existed, when up close the object just surprised me with having an aliveness about it. And that it could speak to me, I could relate to what it was about, or wanted, or I could touch it, or it could touch me.
So what is going on is this is a dream vision in which I am making a connection relationship to that which is an inanimate aliveness in life. As I come closer to the object, I find myself, at some point, drawn into it. It is as if a switch occurs in which there is a red green interplay. But what I can’t tell is if my first glimpse of color was red, or whether it was green, all I know is that those were the two colors that were involved. And all I can say about that is that when I am up close, it’s opposite what maybe I was initially perceiving and thinking.
And what’s odd about it is if I was to try to sort that out, and said, well, I think I initially perceived it as red, then it would have been green up close. Or if I would have said, well, I think I initially perceived it as green, then it would have been red up close.
So, either way, it has an oracle-like effect over me as I find myself able to hear it as if it’s an aliveness. Or, to put this another way, red is an immersion into the outer, with a value orientation, and green is an immersion into life with a heartfulness. Both ways somehow coexist, depending upon the aliveness at the time.
An aliveness meaning whether you’re looking in a state, or trying to understand it, or grasp it, or see it and make some headway that way, which has a different use of light, a different color, more of a red, or whether you’re trying to feel what this is all about, which is more in the green.
So this is akin to the rhythm of the breath, in which I am in life and in a heartfelt capacity that is absorptive, but also with a combinational flicker sort of capacity in this absorptive, and yet there’s both, somehow, simultaneously – as I try to get my head around it in terms of a seeing. These differences, if you were going to call them differences, are more like a type of coming together – between definition and feeling – that coexists in a way of oneness.
