According to some, we wouldn’t dream at all if we were fully functioning, realized, human beings. If we consider that idea, we can see that dreams are always showing us how we interact with ourselves, and within ourselves. If we had no psychologies or fears, and we didn’t project our personal view on the world around us, the sorting that dreams allow wouldn’t be necessary. Said another way, we would be in the flow of things. And if we were in the flow of things, then all the sorting would be happening in the moment, as needed, and there wouldn’t be anything to work out in our sleep. And that sounds rather dreamy. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.) This post was originally published in April 2019.
Jeane: So, in the next dream, I seem to be visiting a man, in his living room, and in the adjoining room he has two young sons who are sleeping, or at least playing in their room.
And then I go over and it’s like I want to lay down under some blankets, on the floor, with him. And it also feels like there’s his mother, or someone, in the background somewhere, but not right there with us at the moment, but an influence.
And it’s like we kiss, but I can tell there’s an imbalance going on, like one of us maybe wants more children and the other doesn’t. And I’m also trying to figure out what is it that the mother would want, or what is it that the boys want? Because I think maybe he doesn’t want more children, and that’s what I’m trying to figure out.
And then the scene shifts, and I seem to be by myself, in a house where I go, and I think the boys burst into that living room at some point, too. Then I seem to be in a house and I go up to a room and there’s a man there, a married man I know from New York, and he embraces me, and kisses me, but I’m really not feeling anything. But now I know he’s going to be going back to New York. That was all that I dreamt.
John: Well, what you’re doing is you’re playing with the aspect of whether or not your intentionality of your nature is taking into account the surrounding. I mean, it’s not a whole lot different than when you’re observing the football game, and going up and down with every little aspect of things, and fail to realize that there is an intertwinement that you’re capable of catching up with, and should be seeing.
And the closer you get to that intertwinement, the more closely you get to what is actually going on. And the more, somehow or another, you actually influence, or seem to influence, because you’re in touch with the sequence of events.
So, in the first part of your dream, you are actually trying to do something that doesn’t quite feel right to you because there’s the mother in the area, there’s two kids in the area, there’s this guy in his notionality of things, and then there’s the blanket that you crawl under and hope to, as a consequence, blank out, or shut off, all of that in order to effectuate a particular kind of momentum, or intentionality, of your nature.
And, deep down, you know that it isn’t meant to quite work that way, because what you’re doing is a peculiarity of overtness of your nature that isn’t taking into account a bigger picture.
So, in this other part of the dream, you’re starting to let go of that, and, as you let go of that, you find out that, for example, the boys are able to now free flow around the house, when before they needed to be off to one side in order for you to get your way. And that the guy that you were overly indulging in, with kind of an emotional blood energy depicted aspect of projection, turns out, you know, that that was all projection on your part because you realize that you had to carry it all, that he doesn’t, isn’t, and wasn’t really intertwining with you, and it was all coming from you. Because when everything is placed back into the natural, where everything has its own place, you come to realize that that doesn’t fit.
And so it’s kind of a teaching dream, in a sense, in that it is showing the momentous mannerism, or nature, that we get caught up in, because we live in such a bifurcated way, that we can’t help but have predilections that choose to select this, and select that, as we bicycle about – all the way from how we watch an illusion unfolding in front of us, like a football game, to where we take steps to try to enhance our life, so to speak, but there’s nothing to enhance. There’s just something that has to be intertwined, and, if we don’t see what is intertwined, then we just cause ourselves a lot of grief.
