bee-oadIf we observe the animal kingdom we almost never see animals exhibit frustration or anger. If a bird’s nest requires a 100 attempts to get right, that is what the bird does. And there are 100s of attempts, starting and stopping, to build a bee’s nest. That’s because these animals are not taking their struggle personally – they just respond to the reality in front of them and understand what needs to be done next. And, just because we have a big brain and evolved feelings, it doesn’t mean we are supposed to feel frustration and anger, it just means that we have a more nuanced palette to work with. We still want to deal with the reality before us with a sense of: it’s the only thing to do at this moment.

John: I’m going to try to tell the last dream from kind of a memory. One can see how this fits in, because I have three other dreams, and all are additive to each other.

In the last dream, there’s three things, three distinguishable things, in a kind of composite situation. The key is to recognize whether one is meant to be in that composite situation, or not. In other words, you can change, and you can leave that scenario and be different – in fact, significantly different.

And the difference that you are may not necessarily be good, or bad. But when you leave that scenario, or that atmosphere, and you change, means that you are affected by a different environment. In other words, this kind of points out just how mutable we are, and it also points out that one has to observe how we are affected – in whatever atmosphere that we’re in – and that we don’t just act in this way, or that way, in relationship to a particular atmosphere that we come upon. We just have to realize that, in our outer condition, we have an openness that absorbs and connects because it’s intertwined and connected to things. It absorbs and intertwines, and that we have to notice that, recognize that, acknowledge that, distinguish that, in order to more properly function.

When we are in an atmosphere, in which we’re affected by variables, we are able to slingshot from that atmosphere in a heightened way. In other words, the opposite of what is inclined to happen where the atmosphere can get a hold of you, and keep you from being something more. Instead of the atmosphere getting a hold of you, you recognize the condition, how the reflective condition plays itself out upon you, and, when you can do that, then that is like a quality in the outer where you’re having things happen, that you, when you find the greater stillness behind whatever it is that’s in the atmosphere, as opposed to being affected by what’s around you, it kind of distinguishes you in kind of a slingshot capacity.

And that is what makes something interesting come out from the maze of things – is a person having the ability to be in various outer atmospheres, be affected to a degree by those atmospheres, but be able to drop that effect and find the catalytic aspect of a greater stillness of their being that’s like the flip side of the aberration, and be able to go into that with a greater stillness of being that can have an effect which exudes in a way that is just kind of a sight to behold.

But it’s not exuding necessarily by what it does, it’s exuding by what it finds, or maintains, in terms of its stillness within. It can do things, but it knows better. It generally doesn’t; it knows better. It can’t tell others what to do, it knows better than that. All it can do is, hopefully, catch up with a kind of timing. And each person has a different sense of timing, in relationship to how it is, or what it is, that they’re able to let go of, or not.

Because in the letting go, you’re letting go to catch up with the timing.  When you catch up with the timing, you catch up with more and more of a greater inner stillness – on levels of how you are within.

It’s like a type of meditation, or is the meditation, in which what happens is that instead of saying that the thoughts come up, and noodle around, and noodle around in one’s nature – you have to keep letting go of those – in order to go stiller and stiller into the heart. Just trying to say it like that, where you’re taking and putting everything, all the thoughts, into the heart, instead of saying it like that, what you’re doing is that everything just automatically goes into the heart when you don’t react to anything, when you don’t make a distinguishable choice, in some regard or another.

And, as you go into that, you hit a deeper and deeper quality of vibratory stillness. And that, when you hit a deeper and deeper quality of vibratory stillness, there is something that is magnified in one’s beingness, as a presence, and you still don’t buy into that, you still just keep putting more, and more, and more in and you actually are dissolving more, and more, and more going into an empty space more, and more, and more.

And the tendency, the choice, that every human being makes, is, at some point in time, they strike out. But if you can keep from striking out, and go into whatever atmosphere that you find yourself going into, and can emerge from that atmosphere by letting go of it into a deeper and deeper stillness, you go from atmosphere to atmosphere, to atmosphere to atmosphere, and all of it makes you more empty when you don’t have to buy into any of it at all.

And that is what is so amazing, and so out of the the ordinary. And it’s something that no one talks about, because it is a condition within the spaciality of time and space having disappeared, in which your beingness is so much in a quality of essence, the limited perspective cannot grab it, or touch it, anymore.

d62xoadWhen it comes to any imaginable subject, people can be open or closed to it, and it may depend on the specific time, or the specific subject, or the specific circumstance. That’s why it is better for people to find things for themselves, in their own time and circumstance. And we can make that possible by being in a space, inside ourselves, that neither puts them on defense, nor hands it to them without any effort; it’s to be in an inner location to enable them to find it for themselves.

Jeane: I dreamt a lot, but I only remember bits and pieces of it. I remember one dream, it’s like I think you’re there, my dad’s there, and Lee’s there, and it feels like I’m trying to do something to recharge Lee.

And rather than recharging somebody like you usually do when you charge a car, I’m kind of talking about some motion you do with the heart. It’s like a sweeping motion with the heart, or something, that you do in a certain energy corridor between two people. And then she can step into it, or not step into it.

I’m wondering if it will work. And that seems to repeat a couple times.

John: See what you’re doing there is you’re trying to spin a certain vortex, in her nature, and the way you spin it is that some part of yourself recognizes a stillness.

And, although you’re doing something like this, what’s really taking place is that there is a quality of the mirroring, in which that sort of thing is taking place, in terms of you holding a different space inside yourself, in what exists in the environment around you.

And, when you hold that different space, you can elect to just hold that space, or you can elect to try to spin something into a different motion. It’s generally a conductor of practice, or something that might be associated, perhaps, with what certain teachers do. But, ideally speaking, a person doesn’t necessarily have to do that, when the stillness is where they need to catch up with.

There’s a danger in trying to spin something because then that’s going into the identification of what it is that you perceive, and, to some degree, that you take and you spin something, you’re also taking a responsibility in terms of a type of mutability, of your own nature, to be able to go into and recognize that that something other needs to shift a little bit.

It’s a very common in-between step that a person has to contend with because, in the true stillness, per se, you don’t engage in having to inflect this way or that. But, in the physical, in which you run into circumstances in the outer in which there is a mannerism that presides, the tendency is to engage in that mannerism, you seek to do things that create a certain kind of inflection within that mannerism.

And, deep down, everyone is trying to reveal something. As you become more conscious, you’re trying to create the inflection to something that causes them to relate to themselves in a deeper way. A person who doesn’t necessarily know how to relate in a deeper way, who is talking to someone, is always trying to let you know where they’re at, or inform you in terms of how they are. And they see how they are, and where they’re at, as meaningful, because this is the best that they have gotten to in terms of catching up with things.

And if they sense and see that you accept them, or get that, then that is a wonderful experience for them in terms of that way of being. So I’m describing a lesser step there. And then I’m describing an in-between step to something more of the stillness, in which you attempt to spin something, or create an inflection.

And then the hiddenness – and that’s why there are so many hidden teachers – the hiddenness is where you just mirror without actually going out of your way to create an inflection. And they either get it, or they don’t get it, but that’s where you are so surrendered into a stillness, that this is where you are at – as opposed to some kind of in-between approach.

driftin5Sometimes we all just need a good talking to. And who better to give us the alignment we need than another part of ourselves? That’s what we do in our dreams: a wiser part of us shows the not-so-smart part of us what we are doing that is risky or inappropriate. As we have said, we are all the characters in our dreams, so it’s important to notice who is right, and who is wrong, and discover which part of us has the wisdom today. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: And then, in this next dream, it starts off where I keep having to remove things from a surface so that another person can lift up the top and look inside. It’s kind of like things on top of something, and then you can lift it up, and open it up.

I do this a number of times, clear off the top of the surface, and each time it gets easier. And, in the end, I’m able to clear it off really quickly because I have developed a familiarity in doing so.

And then what this is about, in terms of a type of letting go, shifts, in that I’m coming around a curve with my car and I pass a cop car, that’s also on the curve going the other direction, that is in the shape of a souped-up sports car. I mean, this cop car just slides around the corner, more or less kind of skids past me in the other direction.

So I’m able to note, as this happens, that he motions for me to slow down. However, from my perspective, it is him that is going too fast. But that doesn’t mean that he isn’t going to act like he can get away with that in his righteousness and might come after me, or something.

So I drive up the road a bit because it’s kind of a windy mountain road there, not an easy stretch where you can see for great distances. And so I find a turn off onto a roadway – initially is quite improved. So I turn off on it, but it only takes me a short distance, and then I have to kind of go up a hill, and there’s rubbish and stuff, and when I go up there, then I can get the car out of sight.

Well, I can’t drive the car, so I carry the car up the hill. And I have to go through fence barriers and stuff like that, that are very strange, one after another. At some point I apparently got the car out of sight, and put it down, but continued going through those barriers. Until, to my surprise, I’m at a building, a very old building. It looks like it’s abandoned, who would be way up here?

So I open the porch door and I walk in. And then I have to go through another door that still isn’t the main part of the building – it’s almost like another porch-like area or something, only this part is real dark. And before my eyes can adjust, I hear the sound of a family coming.

And so as they’re coming into the porch, I meet them before they come back into the main house. It’s not really the main house, it’s stepping into the ante porch, or whatever. And as they come in, I say, “I just got here.” And the husband says, “You must have heard us coming.”

And I say, “I didn’t get a chance to look around, yet.” And the husband looks at me, at this point realizes that something isn’t right as I’m shuffling to leave. And he says, “Sometimes you have to ask for permission.”

So, the meaning is, in my flaunting about with my investments, the one thing I have not looked at is if I have permission to veer off in such a way. The first image indicates I am not ready because I haven’t cleared away all that needs to be let go of.

The main dream indicates that I am pressing too much, and, in doing so, have gotten beyond barriers in what seems to be a premature surprise. In other words, it’s like I’ve advanced with what I’m doing and whatnot, I’ve broken through some things, and that can lead to a certain kind of presumption.

But also a premature surprise, in that what I have accessed and reached almost is too early, or too quick, or almost as if uninvited. It’s as if I just took it on, on my own, and everything has to do with timing, and the spaciality of things, as was shown in the previous dream, so I just need to be able to know how to take a step back. What I have done is a bit disruptive at this time. My timing is off.
