The pure scale of the universe, and its 15 billion years of unfolding, makes it seem pretty unlikely that our lifetime here could really be of importance to the greater scheme of things. But the universe is a single organism itself, and so nothing in its “body” is unimportant. And the human is instrumental in the evolution and liberation of the higher aspects of this “body.” In fact, the success of the universe itself requires that humans play the role we are designed to play, because we bring in consciousness and freedom of choice to a robotic process – a very high purpose. So if we take up our true purpose, we are deeply intertwined with the future of everything. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In my first dream, I seem to be working in some kind of a rehabilitation facility, as a counselor, because all the people on the wards are men, so it feels like a veteran’s facility or something like that.
And we’re kind of in the rehab wing where maybe some people are older, and not that sick, and we also have students that we train on how to work with them. And then over in another part of the grounds might be a hospital where you have people that are getting more urgent care.
And the therapists meet together regularly in this small circle with the people they’re training, and I realize that the woman who’s been the main person training one young lady is retiring, and so I’m kind of observing this student to see where she might work best. And I realize she really hasn’t gotten very much good training because the person was close to retirement age, and wasn’t that interested in it.
And as I follow the student around, I also realize that on the one hand she’s in with a ward of people that are just maybe more aged, or don’t have any major issues going on, so she can’t really do much harm with not a lot of training. On the other hand, she might not be doing a lot of good, either. To my way of thinking, it would be better to be training her maybe with some of the people in the hospital that have acute needs, or are in more stress.
But then as I go back out there, I suddenly realize that I’m only a year away from retirement age and how much can I train her in that amount of time? I don’t know if it’s mandatory retirement or not, so I may just have a limited period of time in which to train her. And so, if that’s the case, where’s the best place to do it? So that seems to be what the first dream is about.
John: Well, the setting is that of trying to sustain and maintain an overall presence, and connectivity, to the environment that you’re intertwined with. In other words, you have a responsibility, or are recognizing a responsibility, in terms of maintaining a linkage in an area in which a greater attention is needed.
Now the dilemma you have, in terms of doing that, is you wonder how that is going to be possible – even though you feel this calling inside of you as kind of an inner unfolding process awakening inside of yourself. You’re wondering how that is going to be possible, because as a human being you’re at a different energetic phase of your life. You’re at a point where, instead of continuing to continue in terms of sustaining and maintaining, and working with upholding and maintaining, that what has been put in place, is going to have to continue on. And that the idea of that happening with you gone is a concern.
What this does is it creates this flashback inside of myself, in which, I believe, as an aspect of intertwining, that a person recognizes themselves to be more and more of an affinity to an energetic, or an awakened aliveness, that is of a nonphysical nature. And that the awakening of this, the recognition of this, there is in that something that defies the perspective of how it is we perceive things to unfold.
In other words, we see things as unfolding in terms of gaining a certain understanding, or clarity, or consciousness, acting on that understanding in some sort of capacity, and that capacity then proceeds to project from our center of awareness into the environment, into the surroundings. And, after some given point in time, we fade out and that supposedly continues.
That’s I guess what we have to tell ourselves in kind of a Spaghetti Western way, that that is meaningful, and therefore it continues on. But, in the dream, you’re wondering, okay, this is what has to be, or needs to be, you’re retiring, you’re letting go, something has been started, it’s trying to maintain or uphold a certain effect in life, more is needed. How is this possible?
And from the mental standpoint of looking at yourself, you’re retiring, physically speaking, but what I am coming to recognize and realize that that is part of the illusion, that when you set something up energetically you’re intertwined with that which you set up energetically. The fact that we see ourselves as separate, and have used this separate energetic way of identification we therefore have a physical world, and a body, and all of that that moves around in it, acting as if it has to function independent from the whole.
And that when we break the illusion, and find that we’re intertwined, then how we are as an intertwinement has a life that goes beyond time and space, that lives on without us having to see ourselves as having some sort of piece of the action, or effect that is important. That we, as an illusion like that, cannot actually really do anything. We are instead intended and meant to catch up with the fact that we go beyond that.
The soul is not independent, it’s a world soul. The light is not independent, it’s a universal light in all that there is, and that when we come to know that, then we are in flow with what always has been and will be, in terms of the awakened aliveness behind it all. In other words, we then are in the mode that is intertwined with everything, and so we’re intertwined with the creator of it all. We are the creator, but that’s not how we see ourselves. We see ourself as some sort of chip off the block at best, that is out there trying to noodle along doing its best, and has its concerns and anxieties in terms of running out of time, and running out of physical energy of our outer beingness, and things that are delusional in terms of how life is meant to be seen, or not seen, experienced, and more than experienced in terms of the all-inclusive beingness, how things are as an all-inclusive beingness.
As an all-inclusive beingness there is nothing to contend with. There is nothing to be concerned about. There is actually nothing going on. When there is the distinction that’s trying to run its play or act separately, that’s when you have the hoopla.
And so your dream is just describing the setting. It’s not saying what to do about the setting. It’s just saying that the setting, when perceived in an outer capacity way, can lead to a certain kind of unfulfilled sadness. And somehow deep down you know that it’s got to be more than that, and somewhere deep down inside of yourself you know that it is more than that, but you can’t prove that, and you can’t point that out in an outer capacity way. And that it is only from this innerness, and this knowingness inside of an intertwined innerness, that you come to know the difference.
