i9033sAs soon as we wake up, and get out of bed, we are in a flow. Yes, but that is our flow, not The Flow. We have many automatic routines that we play out: shower, coffee, commute. But the universe has a different flow, and although we may not be able to drop our world and follow it completely, we can be aware of, and sensitive to, the energetics of life unfolding. To do so will put us more in sync with what the universe is supporting, in any given moment, rather than always pushing our own agenda.

John: The meditation dream was long and strung out because it’s dealing with the ups and downs and the noodling of things.

So, in the meditation dream, to begin with I’m unable to trust in a particular way of being that has served me well in the past. Not able to trust it means like I’m affected by something, like you might say, a due process, on the understanding of how things naturally unfold, how there’s a due process. I’ve been able to rely upon that as important in the past, but now I can’t trust it.

That frame of reference is something that I see getting set aside because a change has occurred that gives me something more, from within, to look at. We’re acting as if the present is irrelevant here. This something anew takes me out of my usual frame of reference that goes back to the very beginning. And that frame of reference is a flow, or an unfoldment process, that is special and is part of me. It’s a recognition; it’s part of me.

I have an established special recognition and connection to a way of being that is who I am. I can just see it as an ancient part of myself. Is it unique to me? Well, I’m even willing to say that  it’s unique to me in the face of a world, an environment in the desert in which nothing lives, then that’s still unique, somewhere deep inside.

In this dream, what is going on is that I don’t need to rely upon that anymore. Something else is going to happen; I can’t rely upon that anymore. What I can’t stumble over the top of, and let go of, is this breakthrough within, that is part of the unfolding story. I can’t jump over the top of that and change the story without regarding the unfoldment process, or the flow. It’s as if, is there a windfall, setup from within, that can do this? Can I place my attention upon a futuristic-ness that is being provided in some unexpected way, that is out of the usual, or ordinary, as the valid approach, in spite of what I know in terms of a flow, in the here and now?

This is causing me to indulge in a way that is outside of my normal way of being because my normal way of being is something that I’ve come to indulge in, as a prior beingness, in the whole. In other words, it’s set forth like that.

We’re also talking about things that are in the blood set forth, too, some of those get in the way. So what is set forth is so much so that it is hard for me to let go of the way that fires away, in terms of having to maintain a certain way of being.

I guess what you could say is that I’m going back and forth with a kind of pragmatism that can take and ignore the flow because, in the outer, you can sometimes get away with distorting and distorting and distorting as an unfoldment process for a while. In other words, man can kind of do that, because embedded inside of me is something basic in terms of a flow.

So I’m playing with something that is almost contradictory in terms of how it pulls itself together. That’s the aspect of a here and now, that sticks, which can be like in the bloodlines now, because how one lives, and how one is, and how one relates to a here and now – the orientation that one has to how one is, wherever one gets it. That’s like a bloodline trait; that can stick to such a degree that one is dumbed down by it. And, at the same time, if you ignore it completely, then you have no semblance of sanity, either, because you don’t have any foundation of flow to build off of, to come off of.

So not having to continue that way – to be able to ignore the bloodline – can enable me to step back and look at this. I guess what I’m trying to say is: to be able to step back from the way something actually is, as a stickiness, and as a loudness, which is important, but to be able to step back from that, and look at it, because in that is a repetitive, energetic nuance. And sometimes that thing just goes round and around too, so something more can’t unfold, is a type of affliction that keeps one on the go; meaning functioning in the outer, in a limited way, and not knowing any better.

I mean, this works both ways, if you think about it, because in the sleep dream it’s recognized that the here and now is important, and that there are certain things that need to stick as part

of a flow, and a process – that is all part of the shaping of an unfoldment in the future that one can see is important.

But, at the same time, that which one sees in the here and now can’t be so dense that you have no perspective in terms of the future. Like, for example, those who are caught up in, let’s say, religion, can get so dense about all of that that they can’t accept others. They can only accept what it is that they have tunnel-visioned into. And that’s a stickiness that is such a stickiness that one doesn’t know what the future can be in terms of a proper context because it gets smeared, mired, and cause one to relate to life with a different dynamic. But you can’t ignore the flow. That doesn’t drown out the flow; it isn’t the end all, be all.

So to be able to see a bigger picture you have to let go of a prior setup approach that consumes one’s attention.

n_sticky_ballsIt’s quite simple, yet so evasive: the ability to make something real in life. An idea is an energetic signal; to make it matter, to give it reality, we must add our efforts which give it substance. Once it has substance, it can exist forever – and by giving it substance, we have changed as well. This is the process of growth. If we let an idea just pass through us, without making it real or giving it substance, it will just be a passing thing, and may not have a part in the future.

Jeane: So my dream wasn’t really clear to me. What I remember is that it felt like I was with other people. Initially, it almost feels like we’re not wearing many clothes, because we look awfully pale.

And then it feels like, as we talk, we’re competing in a certain way. And when you talk a certain way, it’s like things stick to you and maybe even create like a black spot – or they don’t. But in order to really go out in the world and compete you need it to do that. You need the words to stick.

After that goes on for a period of time, it feels like we all travel together somewhere. Kind of a grayish place; I think about it as the Maldives. And there we go out to explore, and I have this impression I’ve been there before as we go exploring. And that’s really all I could pull out of the dream.

John: You’re talking about how consciousness affects an unfoldment. How it is that consciousness affects an unfoldment. And you’re talking about the consciousness as being something that is taken in in a consequential way.

You’ve taken and you’ve broken things into two levels: you have the one level in which you know that it is important for what you are told, or hear, and see, for it to stick. What you’re talking about is something that is in the here and now. That what is going on in the here and now can’t just be disregarded as insignificant, or unimportant. In other words, it has to stick.

In other words, there’s a meaning to everything. And it’s important that one grasp that meaningfulness. In fact, the meaningfulness is so much that everything is revealable in the here and now, if you could just see it, because it’s all symbolic and pointing to something that is, at a deeper level, unfolding.

And for those who have a keenness to revelation, it will stick; they will see that, they will get it. In other words, it’s like being able to read the tea leaves of what is currently going on. And, like I say, that is sitting almost in a spatiality by itself, that a part of you is arguing on behalf of, as being important, because there is an attention in regards to what can be – in terms of somewhere else.

And one can let their nature wander to this something else. And it seems to have, and be, as a destiny, so to speak, as a precondition that you can sense inside yourself, it seems to have its own quality of loudness and predomination.

And the question, then, that your whole dream cycles around is: what’s to be done? How is this to be reconciled? Because what you are seeing, that is causing the concern in the dream, is that you’re seeing that what is occurring in the here and now, that needs to stick in terms of a revelational recognition, has been quite feathery, almost insignificant, almost hard to see. And when it’s like that, it’s almost like it’s easier to have a sense of something that is yonder and hilt.

And so what you’re doing is you’re playing kind of a game of bafflement. You’re acting like you’re in a situation or scenario of being baffled because of the fact that there is the intent for something, there is a predestiny for something, in the future. And then there is the present.

I suppose there is a way of saying, and looking at oneself, that when there is something that is predestined, that is a visualization in the mind’s eye that is futuristic, that that is where things are going. And yet you’re being told, in your dream, that it’s important for things to stick in the present.

The theme of the dreaming is a dreaming in terms of the here and now and the future. There is a whole school of thought, in terms of consciousness, that we live for the future. And that we exist in the here and now as if we’re the dreamed, as if we are functioning in terms of what has been dreamed from the past. The dreamer and then there’s the dreamed – and that we’re the dreamed.

And that, as we learn to let go of a certain density that we seem to be conditioned at having to embody or carry, we come to know that there is something that can be seen in a whole other way. In other words, almost like dreaming it forward, and that can cause one to act as if what is in existence, or manifestation, is unimportant in terms of the bigger schematic of things. But you are saying that it is important for what is going on to stick; it’s important for this to stick.

Com00-1Change can often seem disruptive. Great change can seem overwhelming. Yet, great change is rarely possible because so many aspects of the world need to “let go” before something new can form and arise. Perhaps we are in such a moment, both for ourselves as individuals, and for the community of the world as a whole. What lies ahead may be determined if we connect to the best of us, within, and give that an outward expression. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: In this dream, I’m in a restaurant, and I’m at a table. Now, it’s an interesting table in that the tabletop itself looks like a water table. Yet, it’s a table, just like you’d have in a restaurant where you could be sitting around and whatnot, but it’s like water.

And I cannot reach out over the surface of this table because there’s something about me that’s so off that I can just blow on the edge of the water a little bit. And there are people I do not know that are at this table, and they can tell from the way I am doing this, an action that I have been terminated. My beingness – something about my beingness has been terminated in a wrongful way.

The way I am has shrunk to such a degree that it depicts a stunned condition and a type of shock, despair, or whatever, that speaks for itself – for those who could see it. So a person tells me about my rights. He doesn’t have to know the facts. He doesn’t know the facts. He doesn’t know what’s going on with me, he can just see the way I am is not right. And he can tell from what he can see that has happened, he can tell the vibrational level, that it is wrongful, because he can read the demeanor I am in.

And what he is saying is putting me back together in terms of the way my beingness is meant to be. I apparently was so out of it that I had lost the ability to see for myself what is appropriate, and what is not, in terms of a relatability conduct and context. I wake up able to tell where I am at, and, as I wake up, what had been a delirium that had left me in such a trance that I couldn’t sort anything out, there is a quickening now, there is kind of a level of a rising up out of that.

The meaning is this dream is pointing out that what is happening in the outer is not the despair and hopelessness that it seems. What is happening is meant to cause me to awaken to a better position, lying dormant, and hidden, within. It may not seem like that in terms of the way I see myself as being shut down and in a dire strait. I am this way because I have lost a heartfulness and hope for myself and thus got cut off from a meaningful flow from within.

I was thinking that I had to take the abuse because I am in an environment where freedom of choice, in terms of how you can just live and let live, in other words, being manipulated, finessed, and controlled and shaped by the way others who are in a position that can change everything to their liking. I do not have to be in such an environment where freedom of choice is lost, where it is no longer possible to find any hope.

The dream is pointing out to me that, from the depths, there is an awakening that lies at the epicenter of who we really are. And that we can turn to it in our hour of need. This “hour of need” is a very interesting way of putting it. In the dream, the image is portraying a part of myself that knows better, and this part is offset by a despair that doesn’t even appear to know anymore that is in an hour of need. You’re ready to just give up.

So I am in an atmosphere in which everything is a deception, designed to enslave and dumb down. And so the space that I was in, the condition that I was, what I was actually looking at before I had this dream is one knows the common sense of decency inside and can adhere to that, and cause the shift, cause the change, can be the atmosphere that needs to be.

Now, to be the atmosphere that needs to be, you can’t be that atmosphere going around waving a flag, you have to raise something up. And then that permeates out where it slides right out into the rest of life. But to begin with, it was something that has kind of a spot in the middle of the large oasis of collective, in terms of the schematic of the dream, collective unconsciousness, collective despair, collective lack of attentiveness to what a human being, in terms of their heart, is all about.
