We don’t always realize how sensitive we are, or acknowledge how sensitive others are. And, on a development journey, we often become more sensitive. Yet if we look at the variety of organic life, we see that sensitivity in animals, and even plants, is used to understand the world they find themselves in, and to navigate the situation, and to adapt. Sensitivity is a way to interact with what is happening. Too often we use this highly-tuned system to examine how we are feeling, when we are meant to use it to understand the truth of the environment we are in.

John: My sleep dream was recognizing, in other words, first I recognize that as you become more sensitive in life, something else is possible. Now usually a person, when they become more sensitive in life, develops impressions about what they should or shouldn’t do, for example, which means that one’s sensitivity can cause them to withdraw.
And one’s sensitivity could cause them to have to sort out how it is that they are able to relate to others, in accordance with protecting that sensitivity, even. However, the courageous and brave person, and this is actually a shamanistic trait, is you take the sensitivity down into the denseness of things, and come to realize that you can go even more into the denseness of things, than otherwise possible, with the sensitivity.
This may not be what other people do, this may be almost counterintuitive, most people become more sensitive, like, for example, you’re more sensitive in terms of what you can eat, and therefore you start eating and refining yourself more. And you start taking care of how that is that you are refined by being very, very much more careful. And you drop certain other kinds of foods that you’re accustomed to eating, for example, because your sensitivity requires you to be more attentive in that capacity.
Okay, that’s an external way of seeing things in terms of how we are relating, in terms of our physicality within. Or, you could see that when it’s something about your nature that isn’t drawn to certain dense characteristics and qualities like it is because you become more sensitive, and so you find yourself avoiding getting into situations in which there are grosser activities going on because you have become more refined. This is the usual way.
However, the warrior, the courageous one, doesn’t do that. They go into the dense activities and find a greater capacity. And that’s what the shaman does. And to be able to find a greater capacity, and to catch up an intertwinement that one doesn’t normally see as possible, you have to be able to have the bravado to do that. That’s why I find things like that almost interesting, when I notice others don’t dare to try to have anything to do with something like that because they’re not quite able to accommodate it.
And it tends to work both ways. When something subtle rejects something that’s denser, something that’s denser then rejects that which is subtler, and you tend to create an arm’s length distance, or different levels. So it has to start somewhere, and where it has to start is that which is more subtle is able to come down into life.
In other words, this is the whole principle of continuing to come down, come down, come down, and come down. And, like we’ve talked, the thought energy, or vibratory energy, tends to come down but requires something in terms of an expansiveness to accommodate it coming down in that it seems to stop, say, three feet off the ground. And something in the accommodating of an expansiveness brings it through.
Okay, that’s a nice way of saying it, but putting it into practice, it’s a shamanistic trait, which takes the sensitive awareness of things, or develops a sensitive awareness of things, can then take and go right into something that is normally considered forbidden, or dense, or too animalistic, and can have a greater awareness by the fact that it can take on that capacity.
So who does that? Not very many people do that. So this sleep dream, like the way I’m finishing it, because I finished your dream because that’s how I dreamt it, is indicating that this can be done, not what we tend to do by predilection and, therefore, keep the veils alive.
