A Gravity Condition

gravity_rxwsThere is the sentiment that we are a spiritual being having a human experience, and that is closer to the truth of things than the other way around. But it can be hard for us to see that, to acknowledge that, and that’s because we are as far as we can get from our spiritual core by being on a planet in a physical body. But that’s the whole point: if we begin here to work our way back to our spiritual home, the universe will have gained all that experience and knowledge of itself in the process. And that’s what it is trying to do. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So in this little side dream I had, it’s like I’m going to be coaching some girls, that look like about high school or college age, in a race they’re running. And so I’m talking to the main girl and explaining to her that the way this works is that there’s a special shoe she’s put on her feet. They kind of glow, and I wear a similar pair of shoes and that’s how we’ll communicate during the race.

I think she’s come back from one race, and we’ve gone into a locker room and she’s changing, or we’re getting ready, for something else. So I’m kind of going over again finding the shoes and how they’re going to work. And the other person that’s in there kind of collaborating with us, but he looks a little out of place in the girls’ locker room, is there’s a young Michael Jordan.

But he’s supporting us so, you know, I just ignore the fact that he looks a little odd in the girls’ locker room because we’re all focused on how it is that these shoes work, like if she wears one pair of shoes then we have the pair that coordinate with them.

John: In this dream, what you’re talking about is a type of focus and attention that has to do with a type of light, that has a certain speed to it, that can make a difference in terms of motion and movement – if there’s a such thing as motion or movement.

Yet this is how you are able to contend, or to cope, in terms of your beingness, in a place in which there are the abstractions. But you recognize an inner spark and you come to adopt a certain focus and attention in order to function. And what’s interesting is it’s almost as if you ask the question, or have the wonder inside, as to where this came from or what this is about.

In other words, you have to explain this to yourself as to why this makes all of the difference in the world, and thus you create the image of Michael Jordan, or a masculine counterpart of something that comes down directly with a kind of sightful clarity to make the difference. Otherwise, you’re in an amnesia in regards to why it is that there is this hidden spark that works. The Michael Jordan effect, or the masculine effect, is to a closeness to that which is able to awaken or more brightly illuminate the unfoldment.

The reason why you can’t throw away dreams that are peculiar like this is, what keeps dreams like this from happening is the indulgence of the synapses upon the gravity and momentum of things that affect us from a society that is rooted in senses and, as a consequence, densities and duality that are maintained as a consequence of the atmospheric condition that we’ve adopted, or accepted.

In other words, it’s almost like you’ve taken in a type of opium, or delusionary drug, by which you come to function and believe that everything that you do has to be oriented to a meaningfulness that is based upon an energetic magnetism gravity momentum. And it goes along and fits within this kind of superimposed atmosphere. And so when you function in life with that as the guiding principle, you function in a world of duality.

This principle, this atmosphere, an atmosphere in which there’s magnetism and gravity, an atmosphere in which there’s expansion and contraction, an atmosphere in which there is the sense of motion does not really exist except in this loci, which basically is another way of saying this planet, in which you have all of that constellated in its outward way – but you do not find it like this. You can’t find this replicated; no matter how much science looks, they cannot find this same sort of thing replicated in the rest of the cosmos.

And we are the universe inside of our heart; we’re made out of all that there is in the universe. And so this part of us that is in this very dense loci, that functions according to an atmosphere of gravity, when you have to relate entirely differently in the greater over body of our being to become all that there is, in terms of the universal context of God, of which we are God. But in this aspect of the whole, in this loci, there is the spell of gravity which causes appearances to not be what they would normally be in terms of empty space, or nothingness, thus the result is that we tend to identify with separation as if there is a separation.

Just like the gravity of things makes this unique from the rest of the way everything actually is in the cosmos, the same gravity effect upon us causes us to see things in duality, as a density, and the senses identifying like that then reach to what you would consider a lower-self being in which the way things are outside of this gravity condition are entirely different, and that that is our higher-self, or greater soul of it all, instead of this little loci kind of quality.

And that exists in a state in which there’s nothing going on, that everything is in an emptiness or a nothingness. Science can sense that there is something like this that is so because, when they look at the atoms and the structure of the human being, they realize that even though we see ourselves and conduct ourselves as if we are a density and that there is a world around us of substance, they see that there is a empty space, there’s more empty space inside of us, a huge amount of empty space. And that even though the atoms, that are considered the matter of us, seem infinite, that basically they are bounded and it’s like our way of seeing through the gravity causes this to have an appearance, but if you took that out that would be an empty space.

This is even true in terms of then just taking and going even finer and just taking an atom, and when you look, somehow or another you’re able to see an atom and you look into what it is composed of, it has a whole city within itself, or a mannerism inside of itself, that functions viably through the flow, or the overall quality, of its emptiness.

And, of course, that’s described in ways of electrons and protons and a magnetism that goes back and forth, and yet science in terms of understanding this realizes that to really understand this you need to have science progress more into the chemistry behind the neutron which has no charge.

So, little by little… but it’s because of the gravity of things, which causes the magnetism, which causes the sense of flow, we have the delusion. And so in your first dream when you come down and find yourself in the center of manifestation, like Denver is the center of this country, and you have at that point in time when you come down still an orientation to a centeredness of an innerness of yourself, you know how everything is intertwined and interconnected, and you call it the family herd or the family jewels.

However, you live in a world in which that can seem estranged because of the gravity that causes you to have an orientation into the outer, and adopt the characteristics and tools momentum, and that then takes you away from this place. This takes you to the south or, as it might be said, away from God. But everything is God, so how can you go away from God?

But you’re adopting the mind-boggling spellbinding elixir of the opium of the masses, which has to do with a gravity, or momentum, that keeps you estranged from how it is that you actually are as an overall existence in an empty space of nothingness.

So that’s what makes these things seem so mind-boggling because what one is talking about here is an aspect that defies the logic and the rational of a sense-oriented way of understanding and, therefore, repudiates the intertwined overallness that sits at the essence of your being.

A Herd Essence

Yoga CelestialThere are basically two directions to travel during a life. One is to take an earthly journey of personal fulfillment, whatever that may look like, with our wants and desires at the center of our decision-making processes. The second way is to move away from the personal, always toward the more universal, with the required letting go to being in service to something greater, to something, perhaps, that created us, and in line with the reasons why it created us. One is a path of separation, and one is a path toward unity. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well, I felt my dreams were crazy last night. It’s like I had woken up several times because you came to bed late, and right about the time you came to bed I was having a dream that was so crazy I wanted to throw it away.

The dream seemed to be that I went from where I was living, which felt like the Denver area, and I had traveled down to Mexico. And it felt like I was traveling there because I had some cattle herds there. And one cattle herd was a cattle herd that was a family herd, and the other cattle herd was one which some Mexican bandits were giving me, actually.

And mixed in with all of that is it felt like there were dinosaurs, and these dinosaurs you never knew if they were going to prey on the cattle or they actually were something that helped you. I think that was the point at which I kind of woke up because you came to bed.

But then, afterwards, the dream continued. And as the dream continued it felt like I was returning to Denver which was where I was from, having been gone a long time, to kind of consolidate the family in a way.

So when I come to town I see that there are some kids like playing on the playground, and they may be related, but they don’t really recognize me. And I kind of see them almost as a little bit adversarial, so I’m not calling my attention to them at first. And then I notice some other kids are kind of a rough group of kids, kind of playing to the left, and it’s like I kind of get acquainted with them first, just kind of get my way in.

And then I know that there’ll be some people in the family group that recognize me. But it feels like I’m coming back to the area to kind of pull the family holdings together, and the problem is that whoever has been running the family holdings it’s not someone that I really trust. And I have maybe a brother, but I feel like he’s been a bit unconscious in this whole process, so whatever he knows about the cattle herds and things that we have in Denver, I feel like he’s just been kind of distracted.

So I need to start doing some things to pull the holdings together, and it feels like my ace in the hole to a certain extent is that the people there in Denver don’t know about the cattle herds that I have that the bandits have given me in Mexico. They also don’t know about the dinosaurs.

And, like I said, all of that seemed pretty crazy to me. And then I had just another small dream that was inserted in the middle of it.

John: That’s what I mean about things are getting crazier, because my whole sense of things is also being affected in a fairly dramatic way. The image of Denver as a place is Denver is like the center of the country. It’s kind of like a focal point in which it is considered one of the hubs in which things emanate outwardly from that. That’s the symbolic imagery of what Denver represents, but in terms of a depth inside of yourself you have, in the center of yourself, that which is naturally given, or naturally there, and awake as an inner aliveness, an inner essence.

It’s hard to use the word aliveness in a world in which activity and momentum predominate. It’s almost like you have to make a quiet distinction to that being like an essence that is silent, and dormant, and you proceed into life, you go to the south, and in order to move away from this inner essence – that’s what you’re actually doing – and you awaken things that traumatize and terrorize your whole sensibility to what is your natural condition, and adopt instead things that come to pass as a result of indulgences in this blasphemous and illusionary way.

This reaches a point in which you can no longer accept that kind of unfoldment because it doesn’t do anything for you in terms of your connectivity to the wholeness that you call a kind of family herd essence. So when you come back into that, you’re now supporting something that is naturally real, and you find that there is a connectivity that is awakened, therein, from an echo of this quality that has been there all along.

In other words, the illusion is such that it’s almost as if you proceeded with this essence, and echo, the family connectivity to it all. It’s almost as if you came into life and you thought when you went to the self of things you created a reflective counter that’s illusionary to that actual essence. And it’s hard to let go of that. It’s easy to see that as being almost like a counter party image to the family herd, or inner essence, that you came into life with.

When you move away from the illusionary, when you come back from the journey that went away from God, or away from that treasure of your own beingness, when you come back you awaken again anew.

And that the journey to Mexico to a part of yourself that is unknown, because it is of an illusionary consequence in which the imagination, and all that there is behind it, create all kinds of phantom illusions that afflict and affect you. That falls away in a reawakening to that which pulls a wholeness of yourself back together, in terms of how you actually really are, and have always been, but found yourself in a loci in which the outer momentous conditions sent you askew into the journey, a journeying to the south, which is a journeying away from the wholeness and the oneness of life.

And so what you’re doing is you’re projecting an image of the return, which is like an in-breath because it’s like you were at the essence, almost as if something went into manifestation, just like into matter, but in an unconscious way, and then you return to find that consciousness that has always been there, is still there, and that the deviation is what was haywire.

And what that means in terms of how things relate to yourself is still kind of confusing because as you come back there also is still this mystique of your outer holdings, as if those outer holdings have value, yet when you have come back to the center of an overallness, it’s like you can’t find those outer holdings. It’s like there’s a memory of that. Again it’s more of those illusionary delusionary fog type things.

In other words, it’s almost as if when you came into life there was a spark of something that was already latent inside of you, that became the means and the mechanism upon which you could be fueled to make the journey, even though the journey you made was into a moving away from this essence. And so you set up a flip side, a reflection, in the outer counterbalanced to this inner essence, and then you come back to this inner essence and let go of the illusionary mannerism. That’s why a teacher can look at a student, can see the life that they’re living is a counterbalance to something deeper within that is the essence of their being in its pure state.

Lost in Separation

ChaosThe dream yesterday began with an inner perspective, but then it shifted to dealing with events in the outer world (see A Visionary Effect). And, just as in waking life, when we are faced with what is unfolding in the outer, things begin to get chaotic. Nothing works quite right, and more and more detours are required to handle everything. It’s interesting to see our dreams in this light: are things unraveling, or are things working out? This can tell us where we are in our struggle. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So when I go to the outside again there’s a lot of people, and some of the first people that you run into, of course, are the people that you wouldn’t let into the inside before. But I just seem to kind of ignore them. And I’m walking around the lawn and exploring the area, and there’s a woman who wears white, an older woman who wears white, that I see as owns the area, or it’s her area anyway. And at one point, then, you’re there, and then I think of her as your mother.

You and I decide to go on a hike up the side of the hill and, as we go up the hill, it’s very muddy and there’s kind of like a stream beside it that has pooled up in different places. And as we’re about some distance up there, then you notice a place where it’s almost like a pool with some steam coming off of it has pooled among the rocks. And you want to go in the water.

I don’t really want you to go in the water because I feel like we can’t tell how hot it is. It might be quite volcanic, or it might just be like a hot pool. I just don’t know, but you just jump in. But when you do that, it’s like part of the side breaks down and it sweeps you down the mountain a little ways and you get all muddy.

So you kind of holler at me and I have to come and pull you out and back up onto the trail. And then we have to go down to the house because you have to go change clothes or whatever, get the mud off you.

When we’re down there, it’s like your mother really wants me to leave. There’s also been an Indian man that I feel like was wanting to be in a relationship with her, or someone there, and he’s left.

Before I can leave, I’m looking around for some things that need to be done, and then a little spider lands on my glasses. You know, I don’t like spiders near my hair or anything, so I kind of take off the glasses and ask you to help get the spider out, shake my head. That’s just kind of disturbing.

And then she seems to have left for a few minutes and you’ve gone to clean up and, because she wants me to leave and it’s her house, I feel like I’m going to have to – but I make a phone call. It must be about a cab or something. And when I make that phone call, somehow I get hooked up to the house of the Indian man and I find out he has a wife, even though he’d been there trying to maybe have a relationship with your mother or someone else.

So that was kind of like information that we didn’t know that I know it might even upset her, but at least I’ve got the information. Also, before I leave I see these white clothes all around, and I’m picking them up, and I feel like they need to be washed before I go. And as she comes and she’s gathering up some of the white clothes, too, I’m trying to sort them out a little bit more from colored clothes or other clothes that are with them, and get them in a washing machine that’s outside with everything else. I think that’s when the dream ended.

John: So when you put all of that that goes on in the inner in which you can have a certain knowingness, when you put this into the outer, you repeat over and over and over and over and over again all of the various variances.

And, to begin with, things just keep becoming more abstract, meaning separating from this overallness and this wholeness in which there is a sense, an acuity to every little nuance that is able to take place in terms of the effect as something changes in an inner way of something coming through.

But in the outer, you start off in which, fresh off of the inner, you have the sense of the various relationships, or parts. In other words, you have a sense of the effect of the mother, you have the sense of the effect of this, and the sense of the effect of that, and it’s still kind of within the metrics of an overallness, but with separate distinctions.

And then as the dream progresses, the vagaries get more and more askew. You know, you get the white clothes, and the colored clothes, and you’ve got the this and you’ve got the that, and you’ve got to handle this a little differently than you handle that. And it becomes more and more askew, meaning more and more like in a separateness.

And the more and more it goes like that in the outer, the further and further and further away you get from a higher-self acuity that you had on the inner. And yet that is how it is played in the outer, because in the outer you have your senses, and your senses are only able to pick up what is in your immediate environment around you.

And so you have to conduct and act off of that. And as you conduct and act off of that, can you hold onto, can you be in this innerness, at the same time you’re in the multiplicity? Because the multiplicity isn’t really a multiplicity. To begin with, you know that it’s kind of a part of you this way, and a part of your environment in this way, and a part of your environment in that way.

But in the end the images and the variances and all of the stuff that you’re going through sound estranged, sound like you know just things that you have to contend with, and you tend to lose more and more and more in the separation. You lose more and more and more of the union, or the oneness of things.

So when you dream on the inner, you pull more and more into a huge oneness, and world soul of yourself, in which that which goes on you can be in rhythm with. And when you go outward, there is an amnesia that sets in, in which the parts all to begin with have a relationship, but in the end that relationship can break down and you can become completely bewildered by the duality of things – as if they are things that you have to contend with, as if they really are separate.

And, as your dream progressed, these things kept having a semblance of greater and greater separation in terms of the imagery.
