imagesIf everything begins with energy, then religions are energies, too. When a person follows a religious path, they connect to the energies of that path. But energy is never static, it is always moving and evolving. That’s why it is important to connect to the energetic aspects of any particular path, and not just adhere to the unchanging written words, because it is always about the connection. If we are connected to an energy, we have access to the intelligence of that energy, and what it holds, today, not just what it was holding a thousand years ago. And this is important for the same reasons that we don’t use medical procedures from a thousand years ago.

John: And so then I had this dream in my sleep that I kind of wanted to ignore. For some reason I just seemed to have a hard time wanting to wake up and write up a dream. And so what was happening is that I was going back into this prior meditation dream, only this time the energetic, that had been destabilizing, like a fire and a destruction of things, had been diffused.

And, as a consequence, I could look at people who had come out of a house and into the outer, and just be able to aimlessly move about. Be easy going, not have to carry some quality of a vibration about them to have to contend with things.

There was also something very interesting about this house, in that it had a stairway built like a kid might build a tree fort, where you can climb up, and it’s wooden, and it goes from various main trunks to various main trunks. Looks kind of flunky, and it’s not really a house, it’s up in the air.

Well, this house had this stairway, and it looked a little flunky, it didn’t do anything for the appearance of the house, but it had this wooden stairway that was built upon the fire exit. And a person told me that, if it weren’t for this stairway, he wouldn’t be able to come and go. The front door entrance to this place, he couldn’t go in that way because it didn’t get to this part of the house that was way up high. It was shut off, somehow or another, from that kind of an approach.

And the place this stairway went to, on the upper floor of the house, could be accessed no other way. And if you hadn’t told me this, I was about to consider it maybe an eyesore, it was out of place in terms of the conventional way of looking at things.

And then there was also another aspect of the dream, I guess as I must have been pondering this more, in which I took the inside way up high, I went through a narrow window, and it was just straight up and down. And I realized I was in trouble because I was so far up in the air, couldn’t climb down, can’t jump down. And I woke up realizing, I’m not sure I can climb back into this narrow window.

So, what is going on? Well, in the prior dream, I reached an inner acceptance, in which all that existed was in the heart, and there was no barrier of outer energetic projection. The putting of everything into the heart, as an absorptive forgiving, is a union to a oneness, in which deviation and separation go away, they just blink right out. It happens that fast, which is surprising. One minute you’re disturbed, and the next minute you’re calm.

To find this again was not possible, meaning to find the deviation and separation and anxiety is not possible, when the all-pervading stillness is what remained in its place. In other words, I would have had to violate that stillness, and so I’m not going to do that. So to find this other is not possible; it just blinks out, like I say, it just gets absorbed.

And what’s also interesting is when it’s absorbed like that, where there had been the vibrational complexities, that caused outer motif reactions and such, what existed now in its place is a rejoicing and joyousness that rose up out of the stillness. I mean, that actually hardly makes sense because how can you have that – and you have a stillness? It’s like that got transmuted. Behind what is a vibrational characteristic is really something meant to be joyous and rejoicing.

And so then, in this dream, the image of going into the outer with ease, and a calmness, is kind of a given, this dream starts out that way, coming and going back and forth, like an inner into outer, and outer back to the inner, whatever, without the vibrational complexities. And where access to a place at the top of this house had not existed before, a new way was devised. The wooden stairway may have looked a bit out of place, but it enabled access to a room at the top of the house that would have been cut off, and not known about, if not for this.

I suppose time and effort could have resulted in the opening up of an inner corridor to this place that existed way up high. And then you could put in a window to see out. However, how could you come and go except under a prescribed inner way that would have its definitions and such, because I tried to go out that window and found myself limited, I was way up high, I couldn’t come down. So, I had no option other than to follow some sort of system that, in and of itself, had a defined modality.

So, the meaning is that the conventional spiritual paths may seem good, and sound good, and work under carefully prescribed circumstances, but they do have their limitations in terms of enabling a simple, inner into outer, and for the outer to recognize an inner. So it appears that for this period of time and evolution, the system has been modified. The person using the stairway built upon a one-way, energetic fire exit basically said it very well. If not for this odd-looking stairway he wouldn’t be able to come and go, or be here.

So the significance, of course, is what triggered this dream was, I was listening to a tape and the seed thought of this tape, or an important statement that was made on this tape, is that the consciousness is constantly changing – in terms of the way things are evolving – and that the spiritual paths have to change to accommodate that. What may have been kind of the depth of something is not necessarily the workable format for now.

qLz00_If we truly understood, and embraced, the cycles and purposes of life, the world wouldn’t look the way it does. Because we make the physical life the be-all, end-all of our existence, we strip our life of its real purpose in the universal unfolding. This makes us susceptible to the pain of gain and loss, in comparison to one another, which ultimately can bring out the worst of our nature. When we accept that we are here for a reason, we will use our time and energy very differently.  (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 observing the landscape. The landscape is such that it affects how life unfolds. In other words, in this landscape you have two things, you have things either expanding or you have contracting. And if it’s contracting, it means it the conditions are getting direr and direr as the tearing down and blowing up continues to predominate.

In other words, it’s like a type of fire that’s sweeping the land, and you’re left to a rear-guard kind of coping. But, things are dire because you’re not gaining any headway you’re only having, in the expanding aspect of things, you’re only having reprieves that open things up. But, in the overall, things are still breaking down.

And so this is what I keep seeing, as far as the eye can see, indicating that my world is steadily shrinking, and that means my outer world. And that just also happens to be the prevailing reality; in other words, things are getting harder and harder in the outer. However, in spite of such appearances, my attention is such that I am straining to isolate instances where there’s relief from the breakdown, where there actually is a counterbalancing, or something.

The fact that there is this sort of thing gives me hope. As a realist, the outer is losing ground to the steady breakdown fire that can’t be put out. But then there’s this, almost unbeknownst, that that breakdown fire is seeming to emerge on kind of its own track. And what is interesting is that in the dream, I’m calm about what is unfolding, because there is this other, that’s expanding, it means that I can be calm and let go. If I didn’t have any choices, or alternatives, I suppose it would be kind of depressing.

It’s as if facts are facts, or, it is what it is, kind of thing. And yet I can be okay with that, I’m able to be surrendered to the inevitable because, for me, there’s a bit of an alternative. I mean, there is the expansive aspect that is like a hope, and has its healing effect in terms of my perceptions, in terms of my way of handling what is unfolding in manifestation, in general.

Consequently, I’m able to be in the midst of the steady, contractive destruction and not be in despair. That’s the meditation dream.

So, what is going on is, I am able to discern that which is real, on an inner level, from that which is falling apart in the collective consciousness of an outer. I am okay in the midst of this. It does not do me any good to dwell upon the uneven unfolding unpleasantries that are like a fire burning out of control, destroying the overall outer habitat.

I’m able to accept this as an outer reality, because there’s inside of me something else, that kind of counterbalances it, at least it does so for me, because there is the expansionary perception that redeems me from within. My contribution is to communicate that way of life as being what things are really all about.

Or, to say it slightly different, to communicate what life is really about, by directing conscious attention to the interaction, it is able to open up for me more and more, or it has opened up for me more and more, and the degree I’m able to communicate the stillness of that opening up, the more my heart is able to hold, within itself, all of manifestation cradled therein.

I’m able to perceive the distinction between hope, which is expansive, and despair, which is contractive, as being like qualities of accommodation. So, am I able to host everything in manifestation? Or, are the guests in charge of the ship of manifestation? If I am the host, I’m able to put everything into my heart and draw projections into a stillness. If my reality is to the projections, the guests are in charge, and the breakdown of despair predominates as the outer projections control.

Access within is a communication that breaks through the veils of despair. The collective patterns and habituation cannot stand in this light. The need is met when, from within, the all-pervading heart presides over it all. What I’m talking about is a forgiveness that absorbs vibrations by taking such deviations into the heart to be redeemed redemptively. When this happens, the predominating veils naturally lift, our beingness is able to be the universal heart.

Everything functions that way, as the universal heart, so to speak, or the all-encompassing oneness of one heart. And, when that is like that, joy is in this one beingness heart and everything is whole and at home.

Such a joyous effect seems to rise up from this all-pervading stillness, where prior vibrations had existed, that despairingly distinguish and separate. Such vibrations, that despairingly distinguish and separate, have been absorbed into the stillness. And, oddly enough, rising up from that almost like – poof! – just like a flash, is kind of excitement and a joyousness.

To be able to timely let go into an all-pervasive heart, which takes in vibrations as food, changes the atmosphere automatically. There is nothing to do; doing ideas of this or that is a mind still in the veils of outer projection.

Reported answers are the problem. Or, as Einstein said, you cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created it. When all vibratory states are stilled, the heart is able to take everything into an atmosphere, and the station of love, joy, peace and happiness exude as a wholeness of soul.

The atmosphere is that of rejoicing. And, in a stillness, this is all that remains. And, of course, that’s like describing the angelic state, too. That’s an aspect of the angelic state inside myself. It’s said that the angels can only sing the praises and glory of God, so this is like catching up with the angelic side – inside of oneself. In other words, they don’t have freedom of choice; they just serve and praise.

So, this is interesting. This is bringing that aspect in, in another way of looking at it, in terms of how it is part of the whole, instead of something that is skewed a bit, as a consequence of overindulgence in terms of projective outer.

imcaveIn the overview of history, and the endless battles between different tribes of humans, what is lost is the essential reality that we humans are part of an evolutionary process. The very idea of evolution implies that we are headed somewhere, as a species – but not in a random way because of our own “great” efforts. We are evolving toward the fulfillment of our human capability that was latent, and possible, from the very beginning. But because we have disconnected from this understanding, we have detoured off the path and look to genetic modification to bridge the gap, rather than our spiritual development – which is all we’ve ever needed.

Jeane: Well, I just had one dream. In this dream. I’m a young woman, and I have a great uncle, or someone, who’s died that was close to my family, that was much older. And I know that there’s material or things that he left that nobody’s discovered yet. And I’m searching for it.

And, in order to prove this point to somebody, I go into a closet in my backroom where I live, and in the closet on the wall I have three like foot-square paintings hanging, that everybody assumes are copies or something, but they’re actually original paintings. They’re like paintings of faces, like a person, or more than one person. They’re very old, and they’re actually painted by some masters, almost like those old Flemish faces or something – very nice.

So I bring them out to show them to someone, to show that this is part of what the uncle left me, and that they’re real. They’re not copies. And that I know there’s more. And this seems to be a catalyst for me to go to the insurance agent’s office, because I feel like she’s been searching for whatever else he left, too, but she wants to hide it from me.

When I get there, she seems to want to put people through a contest in order for us to get the information we want. And there’s a young woman with me, that I didn’t seem to know, but she has to be part of the contest, and some other young person. So she has the three of us go up and we’re having to answer quiz questions and things like that. I’m going along, but with a little bit of an attitude.

But then the young girl with me, she had like a partial plate on her front mouth, and she makes her take it out to answer questions and doesn’t seem to realize this is humiliating to the young girl. And that makes me so mad I stopped the whole game, because I don’t understand how she could do something that humiliates this young girl and not even be sensitive to it.

In my anger I seem to suddenly spot some closet, and shelf, and I’m pretty sure that’s where my uncle’s stuff is. And the insurance agent tries to race me for it, but I get there first and I pull down something like a duffel bag, or something that has things in it that he left. And even the insurance agent’s boss at this point comes in and makes her kind of step back because obviously this belonged to my family. That was part of what he left.

And I have a friend that seems to be close by that’s looking at it with me. And first I lift out two kind of thick books that are covered like with a white and gold leather cover. They’re even peeling back a little like they were real leather and they’re real old. And I open them up, and maybe they’re some kind of a classic book, but I know I’ll enjoy reading them because I remember that my uncle really did like to read books like that.

And then I find a packet with some photographs in it. And I can look at these photographs and see, there might be some of me in my childhood, but then there’s photographs of family going way back, that will tell a story. And I’m exploring that. And I feel like there’s even more now that I can discover that my uncle had left me. That’s the whole dream.

John: So, it’s said that the connection that a person has, I mean, this is just kind of a fact of life or something, saying that traits and qualities and characteristics follow bloodlines. And that if you were talking about this in terms of a journey of the soul, it’s like the soul will wait for the right conditions in which the circumstances are such to come through, in which the closeness, and the similitude in terms of things is such so that it can follow through and have a way, or a means, that’s there.

And, in the outer, this can appear, and comes across, as something that runs in the family like a bloodline. And then you can take that and say, using that as a motif that is recognized or accepted as something that has a pattern of unfoldment to it – of course a lot of other things come through families, in terms of all kinds of habits and traits and issues that are like a karma that particular families seem to incarnate or are born with. But that’s another story.

In this particular case, we’re talking about an awakening process, instead, that is a flashback that is based upon you, so to speak, awakening to something in which you have a connection that’s like a bloodline connection, that goes back. You’re using a bloodline kind of linkage because, in terms of describing it in a mundane after-the-fact sense, oftentimes it is done that way.

So it’s kind of an accepted kind of fact that there is something to that, well, you’re using this as an image to begin with, that you have this great uncle who has something there that you’re able to find, or are a meant to find, or is something that belongs to you, or is part of who you are. And the dilemma you have is, there is a certain degree of noticeability that exists in the outer, and so the collective outer, or the circumstances that you find yourself in, intercede then, get in the way.

You’re contending with something like that, energetically, in which whatever faint understanding there is, in terms of this quality, you have these interceding outer forces that are usurping the equation.

What’s interesting is what you do to break free in order to lay claim to that, as opposed to being pushed and shoveled off to one side. You react. You take a very strong, poignant side of yourself and you direct it in kind of an outrageous, adamant way. You aren’t to be denied.

Now what’s interesting is when you do that, or storm the gates, so to speak, in that fashion, not only do you find it, but you find a whole lot more than just that. You find connections that go way, way, way back. And not only do you learn about yourself at a point in time, in other words, there are pictures of you in there that you’d never seen, and weren’t aware of a kind of quality of energy that may have gotten lost, that is there when you were growing up or very young, and not attentive. Not only do you notice that, but that’s almost beside the point, because you now have a linkage to takes you way, way, way back.

And the significant thing, in terms of this dream, is that to accomplish this, you had to pull up the full force and fury of yourself, not just be pushed around and go along with the flow of things, because the flow of things kept you demeaned, and kept you from taking a strong enough adamant approach that would shake this inner into outer, or recognition of the inner, so that it could possibly be in an outer, as something livable.

What’s interesting is, in the dream, you came to the recognition of having to do something quite direct, forceful. In one way, maybe even considered against the easygoingness of human nature. You had to storm the gates, and essentially got mad. And that brought a clarity to the forefront in which to slice right through.

So that’s an interesting dream describing an aspect of a process, in which it’s laying out a recognition. And then, as well, a directness to that recognition that will lead to the opening up of, and access to, the way you’re meant to be, along with access to so much more of yourself, fairly straight away.
