John: In this dream I’m back in my hometown. I’m being shown a small church by an old high school friend. He’s a very responsible type, but is very set in his ways, too. I’m surprised to see that the church needs cleaning up. What at first appears to be dust over everything turns out to be, on closer inspection, a type of fine chalk that’s gently falling.

There’s a minister in the church. As we are leaving my friend puts money into the donation box. I only pretend to put a donation in the box. The minister thanks my friend but says nothing to me. I wonder why I didn’t get thanked because, as far as I know, I did a pretty good job of pretending.

Then I learn that my friend has inherited the church. When we’re outside a young boy tells me that the minister had just arrived. For some reason this information seems to explain a concern I have.

I think I was feeling that the new minister needed to be more committed and eager, but he might just be adjusting to the new circumstance. Then it seems I am pondering the flow of the situation.

My friend expects an independent opinion from me and I am struggling to find the right words. I don’t want to hurt his feelings. He has inherited the church and has taken on the responsibility of it, which has to be respected. So I recognize the need to be gentle.

I don’t know what to make of the very fine white glowing chalk that falls from above like grace. At first it made the church seem a bit dusty, but now I now I can accept it as a predefined characteristic.

Suddenly I see a bunch of coasters (for drinks). Usually they are on the furniture, but these coasters are moving in the air. As soon as my eyes focus on one, it stops moving. My eyes are drawn to one that floats by in a flash.

There’s writing on the coaster. It says, “Albeit, this is a single need.” It gives me a good feeling and I take it to be a response to my misgivings about giving an opinion on the situation. Still, the whole thing strikes me as being a bit strange; something isn’t clicking. How do I venture an opinion about this?

I think the meaning of this relates to the choice of the image of my friend who, as noted, was very set in his ways. There’s an overall feeling here that there is a narrow view, and a lack of excitement. When the coaster appears with the message, “Albeit this is a single need,” I get it on some level that it’s not an answer to everything, just for this situation. So, in spite of how things look to me, my hesitation seems to fall away.

On one level, this is showing that some things are not my choice to make. My experience of it is that I’m trying to determine if this predefined scenario can be opened up a little. When I pretend to put money in the box, it’s showing that I’m not as fully committed to it as is my friend.

Of course, both of these characters are aspects of me, so I’m wrestling with how to open up and normalize a situation that seems already predefined in a way that doesn’t sit well with part of me. Meanwhile, the friend aspect of me is totally committed and ready to fulfill its obligations and responsibilities.

For the friend aspect, the situation is inherited – so the response is to just carry it on the way it was. My response is to say, let’s re-examine this. Perhaps it can be opened up. Perhaps there’s a way to expand it into greater overallness. I’m feeling that the energetic is too veiled.

In this way, the dream attempts a re-evaluation of inherited things, or inherited truths. And it shows an effort to open old ways up to greater freedom and joy, even though part of me may struggle with that and want to just carry on as usual. Ultimately though, it feels like we’re at a stage where there needs to be more freedom and joy in everything.

John: At the start of your dream (Nuclear Fallout) we see you following the issue of your senses, represented by the horses. And the big dog at the end of the dream is the friend, which is the innerness in its fullest manifestation that makes it through everything that happens. What happens between those two images is the speeding up, which has the potential of being totally destructive on a denser level, yet on a higher consciousness level can create a coming together – in which there are no barriers of separation.

But you start off with the horses representing an aspect of the senses and how they move freely, but we also see them getting into the swim of life and working in cohesion. The senses can actually work as a type of unity, as a type of oneness. But you do not quite perceive that, you are just seeing that possibility – that image.

The problem is that you are still overwhelmed by the actual images that exist in life. When you go to the rich man’s house – someone who has extricated himself from how things actually are for everybody else – you have an image of him being separate from everyone else. It’s an old image for you. An image where, if things actually worked like that, there would be an “us and them” mentality.

The nuclear fallout shows something that speeds up to a point where matter takes on a dangerous quality for humanity. But it doesn’t have to be that way. It can actually be of a type of mannerism in which the nuclear effect is transformed into images. It is matter speeding up into images, and the new images are the new reality. The opposite is for the matter to implode on itself, leaving everything still separate.

The way the interaction works is that what you pull out of matter shouldn’t completely obliterate itself. It’s like if you actually saw the pure light, the pure light would then create the nuclear explosion that would blow matter into smithereens (blow it into pieces). In the real world a nuclear explosion would do the same thing. And all of that happens if you continue to perceive everything as separate.

And your perception sees things as “this over here, versus that over there.” A part of you is fighting that – I mean you are trying to work together with others in terms of dealing with what is coming (i.e., helping to make the sandwiches). And another part of you knows that you are supposed to be free from all of that – you even go out on a roof as opposed to staying in a place of safety. Because you know that there isn’t a separate inner realm and way of being that takes you away from everything. Because as in the inner, so in the outer.

But this dream actually gives new information, too. As long as we see things separately, the catastrophe has to exist on a level in which it effects and impacts everybody – each in their own separate capacity to perceive things. But if we can get to the point where we perceive everything as part of ourselves – where we can always catch up with and go the speed of – then whatever breaks down and happens is just a release of images; that’s what they are.

Now what are those images? They are a revelation of what is meant to be. If humanity cannot catch up with these images and continues to see everything as separate, then humanity is going to have to be blown to smithereens, because that will be its experience. But if humanity can catch up with the images as they speed up, then it can recognize and realize the world of light.

The physical is held together as a plane, in which things are slowed down because they are housed in a domain of sound. When something is housed in a plane of light, at the actual level of pure light, it’s only images. Well, actually that’s not quite true, either. There are no images, it’s just experience. But in order for god or the creator to see himself, there are images. And the images slow way, way, way down as creation becomes matter. So the human being has the ability to catch up with the images at the fast, fast speed.

What we see and experience in the outer are the so-called “dead images,” because they are based upon duality and separation, and very slowed down. When you speed that up then you can have the experience of new images. And things are speeding up because something is changing into a new reality and a new civilization.
