higgs-candidate-eventWe all spend much of our lives learning how to fit in, and hopefully succeed, within the parameters of the society we find ourselves in. And, of course, that is a man-made construct that is far removed from the laws of nature and the laws of the universe. Instead, if we adhere to the laws of the universe, we will come to understand that we can be a part of the wholeness of life – which is not a passing fad or style, but a never ending process. For instance, it is a law of energy that like goes to like – frequencies attract. This means we cannot demand kindness from others; if we want to attract kindness, we must generate kindness in ourselves. If we all understood just this, things might be very different.

John: So, in my dream, I and everyone else in humanity, at the end of the day, all bed down – in other words, find a place for the night – in kind of a common, overall field. In other words, it accommodates and takes in everybody. We’re all making the best of where we find ourselves. But the only thing that’s different is I’m like the last one to come there, the others have all claimed their spots.

And, to began with, I don’t know any better, either, and try to pick a spot that is strategic, in terms of if it rains it’ll be okay, or if the slope slides it’ll be okay. Other words, all of the kinds of figuring out that one thinks that they have to do – because that’s what everyone else has done. And so it’s in keeping with the same vernacular that I think I need to function, as if the spot that I’m going to select is also then somehow taking into account everyone else’s spot who has come before me, as if it’s just a process of everyone trying to do the best they can.

Somehow I realize that this is working with life in a way that’s like everyone else, in other words, it keeps one going around and around. And, of course, that’s especially absurd if I’m the last man to be doing this because obviously I’ll have the least options, and the odds that I’m going to find a spot that’s able to cope and shift as needed, better than others doing the same thing, strikes me as kind of absurd.

After looking around in the same demeanor, or mannerism, as everyone else, I suddenly get it. This won’t work. This can’t work. So then rather than taking a coping approach that sorts things out the best I can, I elect to situate myself differently. I look to where there isn’t such thinking and calculation.

I select a spot where the building block possibilities are still unknown and unseen. What everyone else is doing is meritorious, but also visibly predictable. And so what everyone else has done makes no sense to me. I know deep within that there is nowhere in the field of life for me to comfortably place my bed roll when the approach is to bear the heat and burden of life like everyone else – that plays into the hands of the dense, reflective outer. So I want to go back to the building blocks of it all.

So the meaning is, as I wake up from the dream, and at first of all, there is this whole sense in which I wake up from the dream in a still place that is at peace; in other words because I’m no longer thrashing about. So I’m still, because I’m in touch with the catalytic building blocks of life.

Everyone else is sitting around trying to rearrange things, as if that’s how it works. I mean, long ago, I came to recognize you don’t go finding the center of a puzzle. So it’s a welcoming shift. I’m not suffering, because I am not caught up in the reflective. Nor am I looking at changing the reflective. Those are battlefield conditions that everyone else I know has adopted. And I feel relieved that I haven’t, because I know better to expose myself like that, I’m the odd man out. What’s left is all awkward.

I even look at those that have a better position, and I see how they’re holding that position, almost as if they’re fortunate, and I’m the unfortunate. And there’s no such thing, not with the reflective like that. And so, unlike everyone else, I have placed my bed roll in a non-combative spot in which the catalytic building block components of life are basically quickened.

That is not true for everyone else, because they’re still in a coping mode. I feel fortunate because, even though I am the last person on the scene, I am the only person to let go of the reflective outer conditions and come to abide instead in a place of beingness that has let go to having to put things together; you know, a shifting this way and that way.

But instead looking at it in a type of a newness, based upon the catalytic building blocks that are in the universe, this being an energetic, or an access to an energetic, therein, upon a whole other level of all-encompass beingness.

Do we ever stop to consider how amazing we would be if we let go of all our inhibitions based on how people might judge us, or based on how we limit our expression to fit a certain norm? Our psychologies skew the total possibility of us, and our development journey wants to bring those aspects back into consideration and inner connection. Not necessarily for us to dramatically change, but because we are designed to have a tool box full of possibilities for any moment or situation that arises – rather than having just a few dozen that we trot out for everything. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I had kind of the strangest dreams. Trying to go back to the earliest one I can remember, which it feels like I know at one point in that dream I went down in my hometown, at night, to the store my dad used to have. I don’t remember a lot more about that, other than going over to a school building. And, in this school building, it feels like there’s a performance that’s supposed to be going on, and there’s going to be a lady that’s going to dance, that I know. And she danced really beautifully.

But there are some nuns, or some conservative people, in the community that don’t want her to dance because she’s kind of dressed like a little sprite, or something, and they don’t like how she’s dressed.

So they seem to distract her, and she’s disappeared. And it’s right before the time that… like I think they’ve directed here somewhere, or locked her outside, I don’t know what they’ve done with her. So I go looking for her because I know her number’s coming up pretty soon to dance, and they just don’t understand, the other people. So I go looking for her and I opened up a door and it’s all snow outside, and I’m concerned that maybe they’ve put her out there and all she had was that skimpy dance outfit on.

And I go seeking her because I feel like once they see her dance they’ll understand better; there’s  something that she’s going to bring to everything when she dances.

And then the dream shifts.

John: So to start off with you’re dealing with, first of all, having caught up and gone through your dad’s store, so that becomes like a base. Other words, that has to do with you catching up with a certain part of yourself that’s necessary for you to access, or to reach, in order to have enough of a quality of nature to be able to go even deeper, then, or to take another step.

In other words, everything goes step by step. And the part that’s the little girl that has this ability to dance, that can do this stuff that nobody else understands, that is an expression that is currently being dismissed, suppressed, and who knows what all else, is a quality that you can’t access, or you can’t reach, until you have gotten to a particular point of development first.

And so the first level of development was for you to come into a whole sense of yourself in relationship to the store. Once you had accepted, and absorbed, that, then, as a base from that, you’re able to recognize something subtler, that prior was not knowable. And that something subtler is repressed within.

In other words, when you are beaten down, or have yet to develop a certain kind of spiritual connectivity, a certain kind of magnetism, prior to accessing that, this part would not be able to come into being. But when you get to a particular point, it’s just like the whole process of awakening is such that it starts off slow, and then, to begin with, it’s something that no one knows which way it will go. I mean, you could always fall back.

And then, at some particular point, something more catches and it would be very, very difficult to fall back. And then you can reach a point where you can develop a certain kind of glow, or quality of light, that you can hang out in.

And then if you don’t hang out in that, if you don’t stay there, if you keep needing to go further, then you open up the subtle levels of yourself that aren’t ordinarily recognizable in life, you open that up and are able to bring that through for others to see, and appreciate. And they don’t even know that they need to see and appreciate it. In fact, if anything, they would be inclined to dismiss it.

phoaWhy is necessity the mother of invention? Because a true need brings energetic potency to our ability to fetch intelligence from our energetic connections. The answer can come to us when our petition, or prayer, for it is strong enough, or potent enough. This can be true for an answer to a problem, or for the discovery of something never seen here before. Our intelligence comes from energetic connections – and our need calls it in. But, of course, the universe is designed to give us support for our struggle toward our human purpose, not to help us become rich and famous. The reasons why we have a need for something make all the difference in terms of what kind of response we get to our request. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in my sleep, I too was looking at all of the various variables, and ways in which a person goes counter to the mind senses, or the action projective modality of things, how you could step back from it and find some sort of stillness echo, or some sort of quality that arises within you to service a question, so to speak, that you carry as a need.

Most of the time a person takes and they have something that they feel makes sense, in terms of living in the outer, and you just embark on it. But if you listen really quietly there are a whole bunch of things that you don’t embark upon, or can’t do, that aren’t coming from, and aren’t properly servicing, a need, but are only servicing some sort of mind imagination of the senses, and with the senses. And so this is kind of like echoing you to recognize that there is something more going on, that something more being something that’s outside of the in-breath and the out-breath.

So my meditation dream came out of that very quickly with some interesting insight, and then in my sleep dream I appear to be going really deep inside, going over and over the catching up with the need, from which there is a beckoning down of a grace, and a stillness. And, at one point in my sleep dream, it’s like a strange sound goes off, like an alarm or bell or something, and it brings me to the surface – but I don’t have anything there, and so I fall back in. And so when I woke up this morning this stuff was sitting there just ready to pop out, and, had I responded to that, the other would’ve infused its way through.

It’s because within the stillness is the absorption of all of our needs. That’s what the stillness is all about. It’s when we go off tangentially, thinking that we have to fulfill something, that we get caught in the reflective and, therefore, are in some aspected in-breath and out-breath modality.

So my sleep dream kind of corresponds to what you did, in that I just kind of go through example after example. Basically the way I put it, in terms of trying to grasp what’s going on, is I went over again and again at how letting go to what appears to be a weaker condition, at some particular point there can be like a type of weakness, or going over the top, and when it gets like that, instead of you just falling into something, that’s when it can get into the indulgence of your poverty as opposed to just being in that state as a need.

So looking at what I would call in a weaker condition, for not knowing how else to call it, and in order to point out that it’s not something that one does with a sense of kind of trying to control a streamlining, you do it with a graciousness, not with a mentality of trying to make something happen. When it’s like that it’s an aspected, still presence, and the systematic inner effect draws the consciousness down for connective purposes.

So I go through examples. As an example, inside one’s self there’s a special insight or consciousness a person has when he is naturally resigned – and that is often times deemed to be kind of a stillness, weakened condition, in that there’s kind of a humble dignity because the person’s not putting on airs and is near to their soul, or their true need, which is this stillness place somewhere.

Another example is this quality resides, in terms of a person whose soul is racing towards a completion, as you tend to see, for example, in advanced old age. In other words, when a person is preparing, so to speak, or has the need to ready themselves to go to another loci of the soul as an abode. And so it’s almost as if whatever one is holding onto here, there is kind of an added sense to just let go of it because something is about to happen.

Often times a person may seem more feeble-minded, and forgetful, and everything else, but it’s coming from a greater echo of a soul that’s ready to transition to somewhere else. And to see that, and to note that, and to really know how to look at that, is to recognize that there is a quality of need being served.

Another example is a person who is truly humble and gracious, invokes grace as a stillness gift; or, put another way, to serve the need of life is to awaken an inner guidance. The essence needs our need, so however we touch it there is a specialness quickened within.

And that happens when you take and go on even Hail Mary missions, you know, crusades or whatever it is, or ideas towards what there is as a peace or need in life. You do draw something to you from doing that because as long as you’re doing that with a certain focus and attention – even if it’s misguided, but is sincere – it draws something to service the need.

It doesn’t mean it’ll work, but it does still draw something. Whether it’s enough to contend with the collective is a bigger issue because the tendency is to still be trapped in some aspect of the in-breath and out-breath, and, therefore, you’re caught in the modality yet.

To not get caught in some reflective, inner vibrational thought upon the in-breath/out-breath, or both, whether you’d call it a thought, or mood, or whatever, and the sensation was with everything that could be denoted, everything that was denoted, it was like it had a negative charge, is the only way I know how to describe it, because it was toward what I am not able to reach as a stillness. Just the need to do so being invoked has a way of beckoning towards that stillness, which is a need – even though it is beyond one’s scope-ability.
