In thinking about the chemistry of things, we might see that everything interacts, and, when they do, new and different states are created, or attained. And when the balance of ingredients changes, the character and nature of what has been created can also change. For us, when we are too self-involved in outer events, we have changed the chemistry of our flow in life and limited its possibilities. Likewise, when we surrender to the flow, it can change our state for the better. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John: So I probably described how it works, in terms of how you feel it. As a process I would describe it in terms of why I’m describing it like this, and why am I seeing this, is I’m making note of this energetic as something meant to be when the chemistry of consciousness is able to get out of its self-limiting way. I’m seeing this as a reflective action in the outer.
So what is really going on is, when I go to the heart of it all, this is not about an outer event. Sure, it can be like that, because the inner and outer, the inner touches in the outer, but what is going on has, at its roots, an inner quickening. This is such a quickening that manifestation, in terms of time and space, can come into alignment to a flow that is meant to be in an intertwined way.
And, of course, I’ve described how you do that, in terms of absorbing something, so that they see something, so that they take it to heart. If they don’t take it to heart, then they just go back into the usual minutiae. And sometimes people go backwards because it can have a collateral damage effect of being something too much.
So for this to occur upon an outer level, the inner has to be heartfully and graciously accommodated. In other words, you don’t just pick up your paranoia. When that is so, magic happens. When not, then what goes wrong is the result of an energetic that isn’t able to take a step because it is not in the right state of being. The right state of being requires a realness from within that goes into matter.
Where does one generally see this in life? In a teacher/student relationship where the student catches a hint, or speeds up, and there is a feedback, collectively, or consciously, in terms of the outer reflective that is testing. The way this works is, and it works like this in the dream world as well, but it’s all an invoking process, is that if something happens in the outer that needs to be drilled down on because it’s a peculiar mannerism, then you can drill down on it on the dream level. And you drill down on it on a dream level more intensely, in order to absolve the quality or the characteristic.
Because you’ve delved into it and drilled down on it on a dream level, you now then have a knowingness that can take and observe this particular quality inside yourself. It doesn’t mean that it went away just because you dreamt down on it. As a matter of fact, it probably got worse because it was pulled out to a key. But, at the same time that it was pulled out like that, you also now have the capacity to see it more clearly; before it might have been just a blur way of you being such and so and not thinking anything more about it. And not realizing that underneath all of that was this other percolating.
And then if you dealt with this other percolating, you actually dealt with a certain way, a way of feeling yourself, that is imbalanced. But by not dealing with this quality, you continue to stay in this kind of defined imbalance. And it’s hard to take and address something like this because you don’t like to see yourself like that, you don’t like to be like that.
And so dreams to a large degree cause some of this stuff to get a little bit on edge and a little bit chaotic in your environment around you because you made it louder inside of yourself so that in the outer it triculates, too.
This is all kind of an interesting process in waking up. And the way you would say that is it’s like when you have speeded up, or woken up, in this capacity inside of yourself, it’s like you have taken in something more loudly that you’re meant to be able to absorb. And to the degree to which you don’t, in the outer it comes back at you. The dream process causes this to happen. It’s very interesting. It’s why you can go along and you can talk to people about very insightful things, and you could sit there and you can see that the reason why they don’t understand the very insightful things is because they keep this part of themselves in check; they haven’t faced that yet.
And for you, it’s kind of on a razor’s edge and you’re still trying to sort it out. And for them, it’s dormant. And so there’s an interesting dilemma in that, to what degree do you create a collateral damage or effect when you wipe something out, so to speak, too quickly, or bring it to a state of attention too abruptly in terms of how it is that they’re able to facilitate a relationship with themselves that is more real?
That’s why, in terms of describing it, you generally see this in the teacher/student relationship, in which the teacher absorbs something so that a transmission takes place, which is normally blocked out by the student. And such a subtle transmission takes on the karma of the student, or helps the student go beyond his own karma. It’s almost kind of like a subtle shift. And it enables them to see maybe who they are more closely, and yet the student must be able to survive the naff collateral damage when it flashes back – in order for a transformation to sustain itself.
