If we look at a work of art, we may be able to see the skill that was required to bring all the different aspects together, and we might get a sense of how so many aspects just fell into perfect harmony. But such an appreciation may not tell us anything about what is at the essence of the work itself. What makes great art is when an essence is captured by the artist. Well, we can say the same about the universe we find ourselves in: we can see it, and look at the different parts, but are we connecting to the essence that it holds for us to discover?

John: So now I go to my sleep dream, or meditation dream I should say. This is a loudness that is a dumbness yet; it’s a dumbness because I already understand it, but I have to set the tone in this way, again, in order to have had the sleep dream that shows the way one is expanding one’s aura, taking into account through a going into things way. Going into the heart of others, so to speak, or into the heart of the essence of the atmosphere.

So, in the meditation dream, I’m having to locate myself energetically. Where are we? We’re actually in all things. For example, there is an image where I am across from a German, but the vibration is that of having to conduct the Japanese. In other words, discombobulated.

The question is then asked: Who am I? I’m required to denote the origin of the energetic vibration that is pulsing through me. In other words, go into the subtleness, the depth. I go through image after image in which the appearance and context are veiled. Meaning they are inclined to be seen one way, but they’re not that way.

The test is to see, at some point, if I can realize that deep within the vibration that exists, can I transmute, from the reflective sense, to the inner source? What is going on? In each instance what appears to be happening is not what is really going on. And the test was to go beyond the appearance where the issue of flow, into the outer, is being construed magnetically, or densely. Can I denote, behind the outer scenes, can I denote really what is going on in life, not to just take it literally, but to see how the innerness of things touches that?

Even though the images that reflect in the outerness of manifestation are being construed as a recreated reflection in the outer, the key to understanding this dream is to reach the point in which the inner coming into the outer association is revelationally apparent.

Now, I’m talking about a higher octave of the word revelational. If it’s revelational where you have a lightbulb moment – as if you’re in one place and something is in another place – and you suddenly get the memo. That is a type of revelation. That’s where things kind of start.

But the kind of revelation that I’m talking about now is a revelation in which some part of yourself is permeated across and is taken into the atmosphere. And that is what is working, that is what is causing the reflections of things to be however they are. And it is, as an atmosphere, as a wholeness, it is doing its thing, and no one can say that is coming from this, that, or the other. It is just the atmosphere, it’s just the overallness. In other words, the reflection in manifestation of an inner vibration of consciousness within, the sorting out, as an awakening, is the whence from which this came. Wherever that is, however that is.

So the meaning is, nothing is as it appears in the outer reflections. And the challenge of awakening to the oneness of all there is is to inflect – and again, I’m using a higher octave of the word revelation – is to cause that inner depth to be absorbed by the outer appearances. And, when it is, it has to be true to itself; it can’t go around in its separateness.

If I can do that, instead of buying into the outer appearances, as if the outer appearances are what is truly going on, as a separateness from my beingness, that’s when I’m no longer veiled from this inner vibrational beingness. That’s when it’s a oneness that is in everything.

The significance is, to come to know the unseen planes within the intertwined oneness, everything I see and do, and what happens around me in the outer, which is a bifurcated revelational reflection, it must inflect to the unseen inner depth of the greater overall inner beingness. We’re talking about an effusiveness. We’re not talking about something that goes about vaulting its opinion this way, or that way, and that all you have is stacked up positions. I’m talking about something in which all that is meant to be is in a context of fluidness. It’s also a kind of momentum. Only it’s an inner momentum, rather than an outer momentum.

We likely all know that moment when we are doing something really well, doing it naturally and with just-as-needed effort and timing, and then we become conscious of that state of our process and the whole moment is lost – along with our great skill. Well, this dream points out that we can do exactly that same thing in our spiritual journey: as we seek to be in the flow of energies, with our natural grace, it is that moment of the personal thought or idea that will completely disconnect us. But we can learn to separate ourselves less and less. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So it feels like I work in some kind of a medical center, and you work there, too. But the problem I have is that everything in this medical center is always shifting, and people, and everything you have around you, is represented by these little dots, or little globs, round globs.

Well, the problem is, these globs keep shifting randomly and if three of them are lined up, then everything is fine, you can be working fine, but if a fourth one lines up it wipes out all the others and whatever you’re doing has to start over. It’s very hard to get any work done.

Well, I finally decide that one of the ways around this is I’ve gone and I’ve started studying some Qi Gong with a Qi Gong master who lives down the street. And then I figure out what’s going to help all this is if I can get you to come and take the Qi Gong classes, too. If you’re there, and you’re taking the classes, then for some reason this is going to help fix this alignment problem.

And I take you down to meet with him, but I know this is going to be a real challenge because, while you’re very athletic, learning Qi Gong, or any kind of martial art, is a lot like following dance moves and that’s not your strong suit. So I mention this to him because I don’t want you to get clobbered by any of his students that are over enthusiastic. So we kind of decide what time you can go down there and start learning, and it’s probably better to be in the back row while you’re learning. I think that was when the alarm went off.

John: The first three parts, were something aligned, or something is kind of coming into cohesion, that is the phase in which you are catching up with, instantaneously, as an in-the-moment part of the whole quality of your nature, what it is that is meant to come through you, or meant to be experienced, or you’re meant to feel as a flow in the whole. The fourth part…

Jeane: I just remembered it. In the middle was this dream where it’s like people are trying to capture, or shoot me, and I kind of run away from them by climbing up in these great big huge trees and flying around the tree, or trying to do something where I can stop them, or get them wrapped, or tied up.

John: What you’re doing in that dream, with that part that you call the middle, is what you do as the fourth step in the first dream, and that is you have your understanding, or idea, about what it’s about, and that idea, in terms of what it’s about, is taking what you’re experiencing in a overall way. It’s taking it into some sort of relative context.

In other words, the way that you’re having to go up a tree or whatever the heck it is to escape something, that’s your idea of what is going on, how to relate to that. That’s making it relative. The fourth thing that you come up with, in terms of something that is just hitting you in the present, it’s a kind of completion, but it’s a completion in a relative sense. You don’t want that kind of completion. Where it might have been important at one point in time to understand what was relative in the situation, now that gets in the way because you’re in the absolute of something that is in a moment flux, felt in the bones, that’s flowing through you. You’re not into what that is about.

The fourth is an indulgence. The three are a flow that comes in. The three things are a flow that’s coming in that’s like a guidance, or inner awakening. You’re receptive to those three coming in. The fourth is where you’re trying to pay attention, now, as if you have a right to know what’s going on – and you’re never going to get that to align. In other words, the three are a naturalness, that’s part of what’s meant to be, in terms of yourself, as part of the whole. And the fourth, the fourth is your conclusion about all of that.

Now, ordinarily, in one phase of dreaming, you have the one, two, and three and then the four, which is the completion. This is not a completion, anymore. This is something that has to be dropped as a completion. You just need to keep the in-the-moment stuff in a surrendered, accepting, empty way, not have to contend, not have to take and act like you have a responsibility to have to come to some sort of accord.

And the same thing is true in the other middle dream, where something is coming at you, something is being experienced as coming into your nature, or is affecting your nature, and you are seeing yourself yet in a separateness there and so you’re trying to elude, or escape, that from happening.

And, instead, what you’re to do is to go with what is unfolding there. It is not something that is harmful. It is part of your overall makeup. If you go with that, if you’re okay with that, if you can accept that, if you can surrender to that then you’re not trying to establish some sort of reflective, relative condition.

That reflective relative condition is your idea of how you cope with this other, as if you have to cope with this other. If you’re in the whole all of that’s going to be there. It’s going to be like that. It’s not for you to go deciphering it, and distinguishing it, in some sort of separate capacity because when you do that, then you shut yourself down. You’re not able to be part of the whole.

That’s a good dream. It’s also a dream showing you what you’re struggling with in order to just let something flow. The nature that a human being has to try to find an end result there, or conclusion, a completion or something, when you attempt to do that, that’s when you make it relative. They key is to leave it in the flux of the moment, unfolding and intangible.

im098agesThis imagery continues the dream conversation (see Defining How It Is) because sometimes in the course of a night of dreaming the images begin by presenting the case, or the situation, that we are dealing with. Subsequent imagery, which may seem like completely separate dreams, will often further what has been established and then allow a look at the issue from different angles. In this way, we are offered an unbiased view that can allow us to better understand where we are.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: And then it feels like I have a dream where I have to go to an event at my niece’s house. For this event, I need an outfit that will be kind of interchangeable. In other words, I need to be able to change from something that I wear for dinner to something I wear outside, to maybe something I wear swimming. And I go to the store and I actually find this outfit that’s kind of green with black polka dots on it. And it has a skirt and a top, and then maybe a shorter skirt and a bathing suit that all match. So I’ve taken it over to show it to her; so this would allow me to change rapidly for each function.

At the same time, I want to be able during this time to have dinner with her daughter and new husband, who I know are working a lot of hours, but then I find that they are coming and spending weekends at the mother’s house because they see it’s easier to eat there. So that means that I should be able to get together with them, too.

Having worked all that out, I seem to go back to see how the experiment in the first dream is working and realize that, at this point in time, it’s not working that well, that having shaved one person’s beard and making the other person do things they are not used to, is not flowing well right now, at this point. And that maybe I need to let them continue with their traditions for a while longer.

John: This is something that has to be found, as a naturalness, as an understanding, as a graciousness, in which there is no design based upon projection. Everyone sees life as something in which you have to put on a particular quality or attire in order to get things to happen.

Like you notice how that is. That it’s easier if you accommodate a certain persona with regards to getting together with your niece’s daughter and husband and whatnot. In other words, so that you wouldn’t be standing out as someone peculiar and separate from how they needed to appreciate life. You’re seeing yourself as having a greater fluidity by having made this kind of adjustment, in terms of yourself, and so you’re inclined to think that that was an adjustment that speeded things along.

So you realize that then, when you take and you approach something that has fostered its own design, like the guy from Niger, following an evolvement or type of tariqa, so to speak, where he did what he did in accordance with an established tradition, and the other had its established tradition, that this sort of thing worked. And when each of those was taken out of their recognized established tradition, they had problems in terms of coping.

So, you’re sitting thinking, “oh, well, perhaps I should just let them do what they do best in terms of their mannerism.” But deep down you know that that also blocks something from happening. In other words, Niger is Niger, and a bearded approach is a bearded approach, and beyond what is able to happen with that quality or mannerism is something even more. But they cannot function without their filter.

So what your dream is doing is your dream is taking a situation, or a scenario, and plopping you into that scenario and pointing out that how it is that you are in that scenario functions according to certain prescribed guidelines. You still see yourself having to subordinate yourself to those specific and particular guidelines.
