Passing Time

We have often noticed that when we don’t do something, things work out better than if we had made a specific choice and then implemented it. This is not to say that whatever happens is fine, but that we often force life in certain directions because we feel we need to “decide,” and, once we decide, we set in motion many things, and some those things are unintended. To go with the flow in ourselves can mean watching and waiting for the energetic pathways to show themselves more clearly. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well, I just remember one dream. In that dream, I’ve gone to work in a new office. And it feels like I’ve gone over at a time when nobody’s there except the younger brother – I think there are two men that maybe run the office. 

And he’s just come back from a meeting, and he’s talking to me. It’s almost like he wants me to do some kind of a process with him, but to me it’s like a meditation or something that you’d usually do alone. But he’s trying to demonstrate to me that it’s better if two people do it together. Plus, it feels like there’s a certain vibe between the two of us. 

And then there’s a secretary that shows up at the office. And then this man’s older brother shows up. He’s also trying to convince me this is some process that’s better done together. And, for some reason, they’re singing different rock songs, playing different rock songs to me to see which ones I like, too. 

And then I wander away from them. I discover that a woman who’s in an office, and I realize that there’s five women that work there, that this one has come in, I guess, after hours to set up her office. And we talk a little, and I realize that she thinks that I’m interested in the older brother, who’s named John, but I’m actually interested in the younger brother. I’m just trying to figure out how the offices are set up and how I’m going to fit in with these people that are there. That was all I remembered. 

John: Well, deep down in the dreaming, you have a sense that what you’re trying to do is find some sort of situation that you can accept. And that, deep down in the situation, you really can’t accept either aspect. 

And you come to know that you’re trying to make a differentiation when you go and you talk to this other woman, who is also in manifestation, is part of manifestation. You from the perspective of manifestation would be interested in the younger brother, because the younger brother is caught up in manifestation. 

The younger brother has his ideas about how things are to work, and they may even have a certain spiritual quality to them. The older brother has some ideas, too, but they’re more off the ground. Neither actually work. But neither is not an answer that you can have, from your perception. You think that there is a choice that has to be made. 

And so what this dream actually gets you to is it gets you to the recognition that no matter how you try to perceive your way, in terms of any kind of mental conceptual orientation, in the end it won’t go anywhere; it’s only a way of passing time. And so, ultimately, if you were to feel this dream closely, you’ll realize that there’s kind of a vanity in everything that’s in the environment that you’re looking at. 

This is not the type of dream that’s for the faint of heart, because the faint of heart cannot accept a report in which there’s nothing happening, a report in which things aren’t going anywhere. We have to believe that we’re making some sort of headway and that there is somewhere, some way, in some fashion that we’re processing towards. 

Can you tell from the dream that it, deep down, didn’t really draw your attention really one way or the other?

Jeane: Yes.

John: Yet you felt you had to make a choice because it always has to be yes or no?

Jeane: Yes.

John: What this dream points out is the absurdity of everything that you look at in the outer.
