A solid foundation is the basis upon which anything can be built. This is true in the physical world and just as true in the inner worlds. It is often our nature to make a leap before we are fully ready, and sometimes that can cause unintended consequences – when the infrastructure isn’t there to hold everything together. In our dreams, we can be given guidance to be aware of this process and to not extend ourselves before we are ready and capable.

Jeane: In my second dream, I seem to be visiting a college campus when different sports events are going on. And I’m meeting with a group of college students who are discussing how they want to organize for the tournament’s and things that are going on. 

And they’re trying to decide what they want to give as a prize, or to make the game more interesting, and what team they want to play. And I realize they’re all thinking of playing top teams like Kentucky or something, and I’m thinking they should choose a team like Oregon, that’s good, but maybe not top.

Then they’re also thinking of doing something like maybe giving away a horse as a prize at halftime or something. I’m kind of dubious about that. That’s all I remember from that dream.

John: Well, what you’re doing there, is I think you’re trying to figure out, I mean, you’re trying to dream the central quality of a dream that causes things to be shaped and designed. And, in this particular dream, you don’t quite have all of the component pieces working.

You have a sense that you’ve got to deal with something with power, like a horse, and you have a sense that you don’t want to go outside of your bounds, or station or something, which means you don’t go try to play Kentucky, maybe you can play Oregon.

So what you’re doing is you have to know your place in terms of how something opens up. Just like the training of the kid in the Tao story. He initially did a lot of things where he didn’t really know what was going on, didn’t really know his place. But, at the same time, everyone knew that everything in its due time because of his age and everything. 

And he would act out in a way that would be repugnant to something that should understand or should know. But it was allowed, and it was permissible, and he brought a certain joy and laughter in terms of the whole process that everyone knew was eventually going to have to unfold because he was in a quality of a training, but he did certain things that were repugnant, that actually threw barriers in his way, initially. And he learned by throwing those barriers in his way. 

And so, in your dream, you’re trying to sort out how to get to where something naturally unfolds, or shifts, or changes and shapes and all of this, that, and the other. And in this particular dream, you’re reaching outside of your boundaries. You have component pieces, but you don’t have it pulled together.

What does it mean to be connected in a spiritual sense? When we are involved in life personally, i.e., why does it always rain on my day off?, we are using the dial-up connection to the universal – we may get a few bits of intelligence, but mostly we see the spinning icon. When we understand that we are a part of, and play a part in, the process of the universal unfolding we can connect to the universal, which supports all things that support It. This is the fastest connection, and it’s always downloading more intelligence data. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So the meditation dream, that sets the tone of this, might be interesting in terms of pulling it together because what you dreamt was how this applies, and works, and comes through you. And what I dreamt in my sleep is how something applies or comes to me. 

But then that something that comes, or applies, or catches up is introduced or invoked inside oneself, the process by which that takes place – in other words, the schematic for something like that – is what the meditation dream was about. And it was short, and I could have written up a lot more about it, but it was so understandable at the time that I had to force myself to keep writing more, or try to write more, because I really understood what it meant. 

My meditation dream had a repeat quality to it. And, in the dream, there is a deep-seated part of myself that is correlated to all there is. Now it’s not noticeable, this deep-seated part that’s correlated to all there is, if you’re off on your own tangents. In other words, I do not have an access to all there is because the need to know dictates. In other words, the action and the stuff that you do gets in the way, in terms of how it is that I’m karmically intertwined. 

My access and need to do is confined. In other words, if it’s karmically intertwined, it’s confined, you have to get outside of your natural nature of how it is that you go about this way or that. Or to put this in another way, there are elements in life that are connected to me, but not karmically controlled. These aspects are free to break a connection and go their separate way from the greater whole. 

So I’m wondering if it should be made known that there are those who are factored into the world as being at the epicenter of change? If so, are such individuals born or made? Or if somehow or another there’s something about your nature that, instead of going off and trying to do this, that, or the other in terms of some sort of karmic unfoldment, or quality, like a Dharma or something that you catch up with, that you somehow hear a different drummer that takes you outside of the personal. And when you go outside of the personal you access a greater wholeness. 

In your particular case, it described how you may have probed out, that could be considered in maybe an outer-consequence way, but the result was that this led to a quality of letting go that enabled something to be given to you that caused you then to open up to so much more. 

And, in my particular case, I had to stop and be still. And then by stopping and being still I could see something dorment that was there to open up, to be there. And so that part, in other words, the part that is either born or made or whatever that’s at the epicenter of change, you know, that can shape things in the world or whatever, is something I need to observe more closely. 

And it seems that we all have this quality in us that enables us to be at the epicenter, but that doesn’t mean we can just do that, or hit this big show inside of ourself that has this overallness, whether we can do this automatically. We’re able to see ourselves there, in other words, in this place, when we are able to see that we can get out of our personal way, in other words, when we’re out of our personal way, and we are able to see how everything around us is included in the whole. 

You can’t do that if you’re always coming off in the personal motif. You can’t do this if you’re talking all the time, which is where it started off, that was deemed an embarrassment. We cannot say that, however, if we see a personal self-aggrandizement that is adamant at getting its way.

How would the universe know if something is ready for an upgrade? One way to think about an upgrade is that something has been given a new permission, such as the human developing consciousness, or walking upright. Yet because safety is so important to the greater unfolding, the universe has ways to test things to see if they are ready. As we develop our higher systems, it’s important that we can be trusted with new intelligence and capability. This is why it often seems things are hardest right before we make a breakthrough.

Jeane: So, in my dream, initially it starts out and it feels like I go to a cave somewhere in the East. And I’m doing a chant in that cave, and it’s probably something like a Sufi chant, just a phrase. 

And then I travel to the West and I do something that sounds like just a brief Taoist chant. And I’m going back and forth and doing that. And it feels like sometimes there’s somebody else, like a man, in the cave. When I’m in the West, it’s actually a man from the East. And I don’t know who the man is when I’m in the cave in the East. 

So I go back and forth doing that. And so each day I have to kind of go first to the East and then to the West and then do this one chant – and then I go to work. I seem to be working in a hospital, but, at the point at which I’m working in the hospital, I find out that I have some illness that I have to go see the nurse for that’s going to require they put some kind of like a picc line in my arm and then they’re going to put a medicine in that that they inject. And then I have to find someone each day who changes that. 

And, at first, I’m apprehensive about that because I think it’s gonna either hurt or make me sick. But the first day goes well. And, meanwhile, at the beginning of each day, I’m still going back between these two caves, almost, and then I’m going to work. 

On the second day it feels like I have to travel to another office and somebody comes and changes things in my line. And the third day it feels like somebody actually comes to the office where I am and changes the line. 

And by now I’m realizing that it doesn’t seem to make me sick or cause me any pain. And it feels like I’m beginning to find some people that are coming to where I am to change that line every day during that time I’m going to have to keep it in my arm and inject something in there. 

So I’m figuring out how to work that in, it doesn’t seem to be having any of the side effects I was concerned about. So then I go back to the sensation of going between these two caves and the two chants which seem to be running into each other by now.

John: So you’re doing the same thing, except for you it’s described as a quality of accessing something by way of chanting or causing… I mean, you’re using it as a chanting image. But what you’re doing is you’re causing yourself to recognize something of a depth about yourself, and bringing it from East or West, or West to East. 

In other words, it’s something that incarnates. And so, to start off with it, you think that you’re doing this sort of thing, for whatever reasons you’re chanting, however, what you’re actually doing is you’re getting to a point where you allow something to be given to you. 

In other words, to begin with maybe you start off and you make efforts to try to awaken, or to cause something to open up. But, before it’s over with, it actually is something that comes to you, that accesses to you. 

One of the themes of the dreaming, and one of the questions I had was, is a certain quality of something that’s able to shape and change and effectuate things in the world, is that something that’s born, or is it made? It goes along with the line, in Sufi thinking, that you’re kind of like tested and things happen. And then when it proves that you aren’t going to take and misuse an energetic, then something can be given to you. But, otherwise, it’s not given to you. 

And then there’s a saying where he tests his students through fire and this, that, and the other, and they never go wrong. Which means what is taking place is, things are occurring in this way, and in that way. And where they end up is always in a position where they don’t misuse the energy. 

And so what is happening in your particular case is, first you take and you reach out towards something and it appears that that’s the direction that you go. And then you come to lose whether you’re in the East or in the West, or, gosh, what in the heck and the Dickens and whatnot. And the next thing you know, it is something that is invoked into you, or through you. Instead of you reaching for it, it comes to you.
