When we create something, we can say that it is a reflection of what is inside of us. It’s not exactly what is inside of us because it’s not the whole of us. So it reflects just a certain aspect of that whole. A human life is just such a reflection of the whole, but we, having consciousness, can reconnect back to that wholeness while still being only a reflective part. That is the beauty of the human journey and possibility. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in the meditation dream, I’m confronted with an image of how it is energetically forming in manifestation. By that I mean, I can denote, or recognize, or see that I am like an energetic that sensates, or floats, or hangs with the human body so that there are the outer experiences. And that what I’m really doing is setting up a reflection from a subrogated, inner essence way – that is so much more. 

What I am noticing, that is actually disturbing about all of this, is that the energetic that I see about myself, that it is tied to a heart breath, and it is this heart breath that is the perspective that comes down, or comes out, or hangs out from the all-pervasive stillness that is somewhere else. 

And so, to be speaking about it bluntly, this is kind of the state that exists for a human being’s experientiality, in terms of when the out-breath is astir. In other words, you notice that there’s a substance, then, that is around and about and part of like a journey that vies for the heart, from some sort of projective, or objective even, or whatever you want to call that, that has a density to it, and it can have a lightness to it, it can have all of that because it’s the in-breath and then the out-breath. 

And it’s where and how we are, we are projective, and all levels of beingness, that are in manifestation, exist in the breath, that has come out of a stillness into a flow. 

So, we learn to talk about this play referencing and looking at what’s called Kundalini energy, which is how this bifurcation is described. And you can get into the archetypes and everything else about the Kundalini energy, it’s all an aspect of looking at the compositions of the breath, or the Kundalini energy as denotable on the breath.

And such experiences correspond inflectively, in a back and forth way, because the breath is both out-breath and in-breath. For example, when an ever expansiveness exists from the in-breath, this is like a flip from the contractive outbreath, it’s like flipping it. In other words, it comes down as a contractive out-breath, and then flips to an expansiveness of the in-breath; we go back and forth like this. The correlation in the outer from the in-breath expansiveness is the out-breath’s contraction back into a density. 

This is what happens when you’re out of the stillness. It’s kind of like counter-reflective in-breath. In other words, you can look at the in-breath as counter-reflective to the out-breath, or the out-breath counter-reflective to the in-breath because there just is this yo-yoing back and forth. 

So the subject, then, is the subject of the breath in terms of what it is like to be outside of stillness. So, then, what is that that’s outside of stillness? And you come to denote that, instead of talking about it as Kundalini energy, use another word now you talk about it as spirit energy that’s upon the breath.

So there’s a fine line, I mean, as a way of saying spirit energy and Kundalini energy. And the in and out of the breath are pretty much just ways of saying the same thing. It’s just that you might get a little slightly different sense descriptively, when you try to use these other words as well. 

So when you go through the states of breath, you’re yo-yoing to and fro, reflectively, you’re vying for the heart as a stillness mirror because the heart has a stillness somewhere within it to mirror – in order to break the spell of the yo-yoing – so that you can settle for the stillness.

What I’m talking about is a dynamic that exists in the stillness has given way to breath. The reflective experiences upon the breath, that we denote as a Kundalini energy, again, back to another way of pointing to the same thing, is just the spirit energy going back and forth. And upon the inner in-breath there is an expansiveness, repeating again, and upon the out-breath a contractiveness. 

So, as an in breath, there is a letting go that’s like an accentuation. And then there’s the coming together magnetically, and in Kundalini energy is considered the birthing force, that’s the out-breath’s predominant quality. 

So when the journey upon the breath is transcended, if you could use the word transcended, or when you just go into the emptiness, or the nothing-but-nothingness, therein lies the stillness, which is outside of the spirit energy. Or, to say this another way, is outside of manifestation which involves spirit energy breath. 

So, the significance is, every effect upon an individual with regard to action/reaction is breath work. To extend to all levels, from stillness to presence, is an interesting effect. Or, to put this in another way, a human being has access to all the planes, from the states of manifestation, i.e., in sound, to the states of light, often called the other side, and also beyond the light to stillness.

Why do we get angry? Well, there are surely thousands of books to explain this, but at its core isn’t it a disconnection from a flow – whatever flow we might be on? So much anger seems to arise from being stopped from where we want to go, whether that place is an emotion, or a resolution, or an accomplishment, or a relationship, or a connection. Perhaps it is disconnection that is the trigger, because something in our system naturally doesn’t want to be disconnected. This might be useful to keep in our conscious awareness. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: The theme of the dreaming has to do with getting cut off from the stillness. Well, the meditation dream, and getting cut off, was the result of an accentuated conduct based upon me reacting and carrying on the other day like if I did, for all to see. An accentuated conduct that cast a spell upon my heart, that was the result of a reaction that was purposefully disrespectful, because I had my righteousness.

So, in this dream, I find myself taking a test in which there are 10 questions. I have four hours to complete the test. The test is based upon a natural, inner, heartfelt knowingness. I do the first seven questions in about two hours before I reach a point where I am cut off from what is naturally known. I’ve taken this test before and not gotten very far; the time would run out. This time, I have three questions left in about one and three-quarter hours; in other words, it took me just a shade over two hours to do the first seven just based upon an innerness that just knew.

So I have about one and three-quarter hours left to do the final three questions. I’ve also been given the Book of Life to refer to. I haven’t needed to use the Book of Life for the first seven questions because I have made that journey; I don’t have to go through the reflective repeating and this, that, and the other. There’s no veiling: the access was direct. 

But now, with these next three questions, I’ve reached kind of what was meant to be, so to speak, I’ve gotten to the point now where I will have to contend with where I am still stuck to catch up with those answers.

I don’t know if this is possible in the approximately one and three-quarter hours that remain for those three questions, even though the first seven were done in two hours. In other words, I’ve reached the point where something is veiled in regards to those three questions, in terms of my awareness, or connection, my access to the stillness, behind the journey, outside of the journey, or the Book of Life that is the manifestation of things. 

So I must do my best, and I’m about to adopt the viewpoint that this isn’t possible, when out of the corner of my eye I notice that you just finished, so it proves it can be done.

So the significance of the dream is, you might say, it has this quality of being able to note, feel, and hopefully let go. Those are like challenges for stillness to be there. However, if one is caught on the breath, in terms of some intensity, or rigidity, or righteousness, that stuns the overall oneness from mirroring out of the heart. Thus, stillness is lost.

When shut off from the stillness, you then get caught up in having to endure reflective patterns that accentuate a quality of hopelessness and bewilderment. So, in other words, you’re caught on the journey, some aspect within the journey – it’s on the breath.

This dream and meditation somewhat redeemed me from most, but not all, of the anguish associated with not fully adhering to the stillness of it all. I must walk through the door, so to speak, or not. That is my choice, it seems, at this point. 

In other words, I can tell how much I’ve been pulled out of this quality that I fell so deep in, but I can easily see myself go back into it again, too. It’s almost like I reserve the right to be outrageous, outrageously reckless. Or thus to repeat and repeat the same old patterns still holding me back – which are dumb and demeaning. So it’s almost like this is resulting in a type of seeing that is much like: what shall it be?

Whenever we find ourselves in the whirl of many things going on at once, our system must sort out what is important, and what isn’t, and make decisions based on the urgency of need and other issues of timing. In dreams, when we find ourselves in a similar whirl of unfolding events, our ability to connect is shown in our timing, or our ability to flow with the scene, or to be at odds with it. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Then I have a dream where I seem to have come to this orchard area. And, as I look down, it’s kind of a vast estate of some kind. It’s got some trees, it’s got some clear area, and it feels like they have some kind of a concession they’re running out of it, where as you come down onto the property there’s a man, and some other people, that have these huge wagons that are drawn by big horses, or something, and you even get some kind of a ride. 

I don’t know if they were horse-drawn wagons or if they were maybe a motorized wagon; they were a little oddly shaped, but you could get some kind of a ride, like it’s a concession thing going on there. 

And I go on past that and I go into a little house, because I’m not as interested in rides as I was interested in getting some food. And I see these large onions, so I pick up one of these huge onions and I go into the kitchen and I start peeling. And then a young woman, who’s actually one of the owners, she and her husband own the property, come in. And that makes me aware all of a sudden that maybe this wasn’t part of the public area, maybe I’ve come into a private house and I’m actually getting into her onions, or something. 

Although I’ve already peeled the one that I have, but she doesn’t seem upset about that. And then I take the onion and I walk back out, and look at the area, and I realize that she and her husband are just getting this whole estate off the ground, with the rides and other things, and I’m hoping they make a go of that. If not, it’s a pretty property you could probably use it as an orchard. But then I just seem to leave.

John: So, you’re actually bringing in timing now. In other words, you have the scenario, which is like an orchard area and whatnot. It has rides, and it has this, and it has that about it. You are finding yourself addicted to the demeanor of having to look at all of that as being meaningful. In other words, utilization of it, in some fashion.

So you have a spaciousness, which is what you depicted, you defined this orchard area depiction that’s like an estate at the same time, it has rides and it has all this sort of stuff. You’ve laid out a scenario, so to speak. Now you’re looking at it from the standpoint that it needs to be activated, or something, which involves timing. And so you look at that, and you look at that idea of bringing the timing into it; I’m not sure you actually did before you just left. You just left. 

So there’s more on this verdict as to how it is, and what it is, that you are going to get lost – or if you’re going to get lost in, carrying away, in a sense of trying to shift or shape things, which is what timing, a quality of timing, which is the out-breath part of yourself, that’s what it thinks that it has a right to do. 

The in-breath part of yourself has let go of having to go into any kind of manifested accentuation and is able to just take note of the spaciousness of something. Like in your first dream it’s: how do you handle the spaciousness? In this dream you have all of the components of the spaciousness. You’ve noted all of that. But it’s still a space rather than a spaciousness. When you let go of the spaciousness, per se, you’re not going to get haunted by the notion as to whether or not something needs to be done differently. 

So, in a way, you know enough to leave it alone, which is good, because most people come back, then, and get caught in trying to create, or to shift, or to shape.
