What if we were to consider all the different paths, taken by those on spiritual journeys throughout history, as an interconnected network, like our brain? When we do something new, our brain creates a new connection; if we repeat this process, a well-traveled energetic path is formed. And every one of these paths forms the greater network of our brain. So, has a similar process happened by the creation of energetic pathways through history, by this species? And is that greater network available to everyone born here now?

John: Well, for me, I had to maintain the recognition and connection in relationship to a void.
To begin with I was wondering if I was going to be able to do that, based upon something of an effect, that had occurred, that had caused a certain kind of overindulgence in the seeing, yet at the same time utilizing, in that overindulgence, an aliveness that can be quickened in a shamanistic side of oneself.
And I was able to do this more easily than I usually do, with a greater ease than I usually do, because, number one, I have a flexibility to something of a stillness space, or void depth, that I don’t necessarily know how I have that, but I have that, and that helps to facilitate a sight. And there’s a certain quality of something that’s denser in a spaciality and that tends to facilitate something that’s grounded.
So, the theme of the dreaming was can I be, and maintain, something more, in terms of myself, in relationship to the shamanistic zone, which is really located more in the bottom of the breath? And it holds a person, when it’s in the bottom of the breath, into a particular modality because it has a chi about it that can hold one’s attention.
And that a person is more than the shamanistic side of themself, but can you maintain that something more in the face of the chi that can be louder in its physical, magnetic presence or something? Can you use that chi for atmospheric purposes? Holding something together in terms of the atmosphere?
Or can you speak through the chi and affect the atmosphere, and, at the same time, do so in a way that keeps something, and recognizes something, more in the void? In other words, go beyond the chi mannerism that can hold things in track.
I have to look at it this way. You seem to have to look at in terms of what it’s like in terms of holding a quality of a space in relationship to the stuff that is going on. I hold that in terms of an actionability. You hold it in terms of a quality of trying to recognize and see if you’re able to maintain yourself in the space of something where there are things going on. I look at it in terms of an actionability, but it better be an actionability that isn’t infected by an overindulgence of this part of one’s makeup.
