k773In this dream, the idea of fair dealing is understood as symbolic of the state of being intertwined with the flow of things. And much has been studied and analyzed about the human and its innate sense of right and wrong, in the moral sense. Yet beyond that, there is also a deep sense in us – when we don’t suppress it – of knowing “the way things are supposed to be,” which points to an urge to always improve the environment we are in. Still, in our world today, almost nothing is as it should be, which puts great contradiction and stress into our lives and physical systems.

Jeane: All I remember about my first dream is that it seemed to involve things that were being sold at something like the antique mall, or secondhand shop. And it felt like I was just trying to see that things were sold at the right price. And I went to the extent of even pulling a gun on somebody at one point so they didn’t cheat, you know, the person that they’re selling the things to that was going to sell them to the public.

I seem to feel very strongly about it, whatever it was. That’s all I remember about the first dream.

John: Well, the deeper meaning in that is that you’re struggling to hold onto and maintain a place in which there is a natural overall clarity which predominates. And in the dream you appear to have a sense of it being askew.

And so what is it that is askew? What’s askew is this idea, or this aspect, of oneness in which everything is commonly known. And so you seem to have a clarity about it in terms of how it needs to be portrayed and, if you can catch up with and access this clarity, it enables something more to come together.

You’re using an imagery of buying and selling to portray the connectivity, the intertwining. When something is in this kind of imagery, mis-priced, then there is a gap, and a barrier, that exists that keeps a cohesion from coming together.

When something is properly priced, then the well being of everyone benefits as a quality of appreciation is able to come through.

So you have an interesting dilemma on your hands because this is what you are having to sort out, based upon a general overall sense that you carry in terms of a balance, that needs to exist in the atmosphere, in the overall sense of things in the world.

doad2As humans we are born with a unique set of skills, and each one of us can be the answer to a need in creation because no two people will take the same path through life. For those seeking to fulfill that possibility in their lives, doors and pathways will open up before them. Yet we also always have our freedom of choice: we can take those opportunities, or try a different way. This discussion follows the dream analysis from A Greater Vista.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: It reminds me of a dream in which Siddhartha, when he was born, or before he was born, he was born into a wealthy king family, there was a dream that occurred in which the interpretation of the dream was that this boy had two possibilities. One is he could become a really, really great king and effect a lot of changes in the countryside and in the kingdom. Or two, he could become a person that would be exalted in his renunciation of the physical, and thus a realization of some deep, deep inner depth.

So the parents were aware of this. They were aware of this dream. They believed this dream, and so they sheltered Siddhartha from seeing anything that could disturb him and cause him to want to trip into another depth world of renunciation or something – and he remained like this. In fact, he even submitted to an arranged marriage when he was like 28 or 29 years old.

And somehow in that whole process he came to realize that the world outside of the castle, and the world in the castle, were completely different. In other words, there was strife and poverty and death and all of that which, somehow or another, he hadn’t really come to grips with. So once he got married he was totally enamored in the marriage, but he now had this other that was plaguing him. And this was hitting in a way that was quickening what obviously was one direction or the other that he could turn.

He could stay in the wonderful marriage that he was in, and go on and become an exalted king, or this other, he could turn his attention to that. He chose to turn his attention to coming to grips and dealing with and understanding the plight of everything. So he did it in a very, very confused way. He deprived himself of everything. He just disappeared from a wonderful marriage that he was in. He went out and he got so gaunt and so thin, renunciating things, and eating one grain of rice a day and whatnot, as if that was going to cause him to realize something.

He fell in even with a band of renunciates that were somewhat like that, except he always took everything to a greater extreme, and he even took himself to the verge of death. And suddenly he had this realization, or recognition, that in terms of another kind of clarity that he needed to rise up and be strong with instead of the weakened condition that he had gotten himself into. He needed to eat. He needed to bring himself back into life.

So the renunciants he was with renounced him because he was now betraying of the cause, and out of this evolves what became Buddha. But for quite awhile while he was doing this other, he had to go through this whole process of a type of purging before he could come to realize what the inner process was really all about.

Your dream reminds me of that because it points out something that’s kind of like that. It points out that you have a natural inclination to shape something that can be part of a process, in which something is shaped, that has a real shine to it, but you do it in a subservient way where you do not project yourself to where you are able to function in an independent capacity from with inside of yourself.

You rely upon the guidance around you, and the time comes when you recognize that you have the insightfulness, the key inside of yourself, to take a step forward and be more effective straightaway, instead of dependent, that you can reach those levels inside yourself or open that quality of a guidance seeing and hearing from within, and shape accordingly.

And when you do that, and when you take that push forward, you stimulate the Kundalini energy of your nature that’s necessary to go along with that unfoldment. When you do that you’re then presented with two options, two different ways of being. One is you can hold the presence of what you’ve realized and recognized and maintain that in the space of something more that’s opened up. However, it is defined. It is something that is now visible.

Or you can take it into a greater outer, into a greater soul, world soul or something. You could soar with that. You could take that quality that’s shaped and, so to speak, dismantle the gem in that it becomes a type of pervasive nothingness that goes into the outer, into the whole.

In other words, the option is to hold a space that has a recognized brilliance or, upon accessing it, going into a way of carrying this into a greater overallness. It’s something that isn’t defined because where that kind of expansive realm goes is hard to denote.

In other words, if you’re looking at what you were doing with the energy is you were taking the life force and making it loud in a physical world sense way, in conjunction with having achieved and awoken a clarity within, that then was more greatly grounded by bringing it through, bringing it into a foundation.

The loudness of that kind of swallows you up from the standpoint then that the life force that goes into the soul of the world, you can’t find yourself necessarily in something like that because you don’t accentuate a quality of passion in life that is apparent and obvious. The passion in life is visible, it’s obvious to others. When you take it into the soul there’s an illumination that is only accessible to those who have reached a point that they can gain or glean from that. The illumination extends out. It’s almost like a ray of sight. It’s like an example of something with that illumination would be a teacher that can kind of see the soul of things, and their sight touches out, touches things in terms of touching out into all that exists.

It’s like you’re at a crossroads, one to be lived, and the other is something else; it’s what is intended.

ima=098gesWe don’t always consider the importance of balance in our lives. But balance is something that the universe strives for in every moment, and that happens energetically first before it manifests in the material worlds. In our own journey, we are always seeking new elevations, but we must always have built a stable platform from which to make that climb, or a state of imbalance can occur. The higher we go, the more dangerous being out of balance can be for us.

Jeane: Well, I had another busy dream from which I seem to pull out bits, but I know that I was in a school setting, teaching with some other people, and we are overseen by a couple that I know that used to run seminars out of New York.

And there are several things that go on. At one point there are younger kids in the school kind of running around. I keep thinking we must teach with them, but we also seem to be apart from them somewhat with the group of us that are overseeing, like we must have some of our own activities that we do.

I don’t see that much of our interaction with the kids. They seem to be grade-school age. I know that we’re putting on some plays. I know that I think we teach something, but I don’t see that that much. I see more of my interaction with either the other teachers I’m with, or with the people that seem to be in charge of our group, the couple.

And then we also seem to come and go. Sometimes, because it feels like the school is down on ground level and maybe even some water nearby, and at times I know I went up into the mountains and, at one point near the end of the dream, I realize the teachers, or people who put on this play, we’ve been coached to go ask for a raise. And it had to do with the plays we are putting on or something we were doing there, anyway.

Before we went to get coached for that raise, it felt like I had left the school and gone up in the mountains and I observed kind of a crafty looking man that was kind of shady. I didn’t know what he was doing, and I had come back. And then when I came back to the school I realized that there’s probably a teacher in our group who’s closer to the supervisors, and I wonder if they coached her how to ask for the raise, but that the raise didn’t extend to us, but I don’t know quite how to figure that out.

And then I look around. I realize one of the rooms is empty, and I realize maybe school has let out for the summer, but it doesn’t feel quite right to me because I remember when I used to get let out of school for the summer, when you went to school that day everybody was kind of excited, and it was kind of chaotic, and I didn’t see anything like that in the kids during the day.

And then I leave. I go to where the rooms we stay in. I want to ask the other girl about the raise or something, and I just see her with the supervisor so that’s not quite the right time to ask. And then I go to my room; I saw some new people in one of the rooms, and I just see like a transparent beach ball in the hallway, so I’m pretty sure the school year has ended now.

I leave there and I seem to be in the mountains again, and I see that crafty looking man. I’ve gone past him and I’ve gone into a room and I see a filet of fish out on a counter, and a frying pan and something. And now another friend is with me and we decide we’ll go over and we’ll fry the fish.

As we go over to fry the fish, the man comes in and we try to hide the fish at first, but he just kind of jokes about how we’re about to eat his fish. So we go ahead and put our fish in the pan and we’re going to eat it with him, even though he’s this really kind of sleazy character, you know. That seemed to be where the dream ended.

John: So, you’re portraying an in-betweenness, in other words, where something isn’t as grounded, where you have a sense that’s not as rooted as it can be, nor is it as speeded up or expansive as it could be.

So you seem to be trying to sort something out from being in a position that’s able to look both up and look down. It’s kind of an interesting spot to be at, because you generally can only do one and not both. And to be at an in-between state it’s almost like you’re between two worlds.

So there’s two ways of looking at that. The one way is to assume that you need more grounding, but then if you had more grounding that would give up something in terms of the way you see something expansive. Another way of looking at it, is being in between going through the chaos of something that’s both up and down, or that lies in between is kind of a condition that’s very interesting if you can sustain something like that, because it’s a process that’s working on you.

In other words, this is almost like two dreams, in which in the first instance it’s being portrayed where you’re at, which you could say it’s almost kind of a miserable condition because human nature is to want to be in one direction, or the other, but not in between. And so, could it be said that that’s the setting, and then the second aspect, or the second half, is where from such a setting change comes through, or is evoked? Or, in other words, you’re able to be shifted, which would mean then that the first setting that would describe where you’re at is indicating that that may seem miserable or imbalanced, but the interesting thing about it is it is looking up, and it is looking down.

In other words, you’re able to kind of somehow or another have an understanding in both directions, and then that, then, because you’re not biasing yourself completely one way or the other, in other words you’re not getting your raise, and at the same time you’re not necessarily quite able to be in the setting with the teachers or with the students, that the combination of that ultimately results in a shift in which this enhances, or leads to a greater consciousness – even though maybe not at that point in time. In other words, it doesn’t seem like that when you’re in between.

And if it is subject to the second interpretation, which means that you’re like between two worlds, and that it’s good to be able to hold that place between two worlds, in holding that place between two worlds is where change is evoked, that’s where you are changed, that’s where you die before you die or, in this case, are filleted into a higher consciousness, the fish being a consciousness, the filleting of it, you being reshaped, re-groomed.

So even though you tell it as one sequence dream, it’s almost like a process of two dreams in which the first part would be portraying where you’re at, in which you’d be experiencing that as awkward because you’re in between both what is as far as a student, and what is in terms of a higher connection, and unable to quite make the higher connection, and unable to quite do the proper relatability to the average student – but you’re aware of that.

It’s kind of like being able in a dream to see something that you can’t reach, but the fact that you can see it and can’t reach it means that you’re going to eventually reach a point in yourself that you can make that step, because you’re seeing in both directions. It would’ve been one thing if the dream had been linear to where it was just one or the other, and then if you didn’t have, for example, the dilemma with the students going on and your attention was just upon trying to get the raise, or to get up above, and no attention to the fact that there was a gap in terms of relatability to the student, and you had just been dwelling in that direction, then one would have said that you’re not grounded enough, and that you’re aspiring too much so in one way where you don’t have the proper counterbalance.

But you seem to have both going on, which means that you’re balancing between two points, which is actually an interesting place to be in terms of how the dream portrayed that coming out because it led to a certain filleting, or letting go, or consciousness. Fish is always symbolic of an opening up of consciousness – and the fish are filleted.

And so your dream is kind of like letting you know what’s been going on and, instead of leaving it in kind of a miserable setting, is pointing out that there is a cadence that’s found.
