Yesterday, Jeane’s dream explored the idea of struggling to hold an inner space where something new could unfold – when the time comes (see The Interval Before Manifestation). Today, John’s dream explores the same territory, yet from a location of stability in being able to not be swayed by the push and pull of energetic, and societal, changes.

(At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: In my dream, at one point I remembered the details as I looked at two energies going on at the same time, that basically have opposite effects – especially if you’re to view these opposite effects as a sensation in which the determination inside you is one way or another, kind of a setness.

But in this dream, I just recognize that the two effects are going on simultaneously and that in one sense, where something is expansive, it’s like you’re able to be offered something rather than taking the blow of something being overly expansive, and in the other way, where something is contractive, you’re not lost in the contractiveness to where you’re hurt that way either.

In other words, in my dream this wasn’t confusing to me. I was able to be turned first one way or the other, it didn’t matter, or turned both ways simultaneously. I took both extremes as simply being the way things are. I kind of pondered inside myself but not really. I mean, I just noted the distinction that if a person isn’t fluid in their being, such a lifestyle in the world would be disconcerting. For me it was what I had to adjust to and my being responded accordingly: I could do both directions.

The meaning is that I am describing a condition based upon just the inner vibration and being at ease with the inner vibration then the ways that things unfold, or the degree to which things are thrown around, don’t seem to hold sway or to have me definitively reactive one way or the other in some sort of cause and effect reactivity.

So in the dream in which I’m experiencing both up and down, or expansive/contractive, simultaneously, I’m able to see myself shift as the circumstances require. But I also know that for most people such a reality will drive them crazy.

I can see how it could be difficult to me, but I just seem to have a natural way with it. And that’s why I’m able to note that, that I’m able to be something that wouldn’t ordinarily make sense to other people because it’s a way in which the mind in the outer has to go both directions simultaneously, which means that a person who is attached to set ideas and approaches would be very disturbed because this isn’t rational from a linear perspective in terms of outer life.

Thus a person caught up in any outer mannerism in some mental, spiritual, or ego way is going to be experiencing, and noting this, as a very disturbing and problematic condition. But for those able to be fluid, adaptable, and accepting, such a person can shift and adapt and go with the changes and the flow, not having to take them on in any one particular way that they have to be and, therefore, don’t have to suffer the stigma and nuances that are prevalent with those who have to have some set way or another.

In times like this the potentialities, the opposites are… there’s a term for those. In Chinese spiritualities they’re called Yin and Yang, light and darkness, but both expand and contract simultaneously in terms of what an individual is able to experience from within. And when you reach a time like this where the darkness aspect of things is able to intensify, as if everything is broken down and that there is no set order, its corollary, in light, also magnifies.

And so this can be a time of great steps forward in inner spiritual consciousness; not necessarily outer, but inner, which is when the individual’s conscious life is able to constellate with the opposite because it is okay with it. It’s okay in both ways. It’s neither holding onto one or the other.

But in the outer collective, this is an effect with extreme consequences because the expanse is taken in as being something more than what society can handle, on a reflective level, and the contractive, of course, is technically viewed like the flipside of the coin, the same way.

So systems fail and yet there is a way of being with that and not having to suffer. But those who are set and have to appreciate it in one way or another, in terms of how they take it in, the reflections that they receive will lack the inner grace, will not know how to sit in this as you’re meant to sit – neither attached nor detached in any regard.

Those who have no other reality other than what exists in the outer, the breakdown of the social, economic, and natural order of the environment, which means even Mother Nature can be acting up and so on, will find things to be most confusing, disorienting, painful. And the one thing that they should be able to do, or should be doing, but aren’t able to do, is staying in that inner interval or space that is expressed in terms of the breath as being the place where the in-breath turns into the out-breath, at a place where nothing in creation has a fixed hold upon one’s being.

And that a person simply adjusts, as need be, if they find themselves in creation but are also in this interval, and when you’re in that interval you feel the connection to your need, you are therefore able to fluidly go this way or that way without being hurt.

In other words, expansively, contractively, simultaneously… you know, whatever is going on just doesn’t have a deep touch or hold upon you. Those caught up in the outer, though, take this in too literally and do not know how to do both simultaneously, do not have the flexibility, the fluidity, or ability to relate to the heartfelt love and beauty within, where there is a protection and state of inner grace, because you’re in a point where things have to just wait.

It’s the interlude between one step and the next. And for a person who is able to reside naturally in the inner/outer by embracing the nothingness that is everything that exists in creation, means that the interval where the in-breath turns to the out-breath there is a naturalness and an emptiness from which manifestation actually manifests naturally – but from the seed of the latent opera, which hasn’t yet happened, so things sit without a light.

And at this interval a person is at the creative epicenter of the light harboring that which is yet to be in the inner emptiness, that is meant to come from this inner emptiness and nothingness, as an all encompassing vibration that touches all of life. To reside here is to be at total ease with the expansive/contractive, or inflation/deflation, because there is nothing going on that is absolute yet as destined or predetermined in manifestation and creation, that is predesigned and is the precursor for a new era.

In other words, the precursor hasn’t yet been released, which it would be when the out-breath comes into play. The danger of this space, if viewed from the perspective of the outer, is that there is no fabric to the collective order from which a person can reflectively seek solace. Everything is subject to change at any given moment because there is no connection for the collective consciousness to turn to or shift or evolve.

Here is the final installment of this conversation between Ann and John (for Parts I and II, see At Play in the Cosmos and Struggle and Progression). The discussion of listening has led them to these current times, and the idea that people are feeling the shifts in energy that are happening world-wide and, while not everyone understands them, they have an intuitive sense of their fundamental importance.

So we can begin to sense the full spectrum of vibrational energy and how it impacts our lives through this dialogue. From the intertwine of the Masculine and Feminine Principles at a cosmic level, to listening to a spouse or loved one, to sensing the vibrations at play behind the images in our dreams, we are surrounded by the intelligence of energy. It is all there for us to be open to, to receive, and to process in our own way.

And it is exactly that process that brings us closer to being a part of the universal, and enables us to let go of our tight grip on the culture of personal identity. As we sit on the brink of the year 2012, it is more important than ever that we all answer these deeper questions within ourselves.

John: I have a couple little dreams and the first is: I’m in a situation in which the way to make something happen is to press down on a device. Maybe I have to press down three, four, or five times, but if I don’t press down on the device, nothing changes.

It’s like that. When you firmly press down on it you change the flow but, if you don’t, what exists goes on as usual.

I wake up somewhat surprised that nothing has changed and that the current situation continues. But I see that nothing will change unless I take an action to change the way things can unfold. Somehow I’m surprised that it actually works that way. 

This is what I’m being shown in the dream – that things work that way. At first it makes no sense to me – it requires deeper understanding. It’s suggesting that I have an effect upon what unfolds, even though I’m not inclined to believe this as being literally true.

That’s the first dream.

In the second dream I wake up at the end of it when a person makes the following statement to me, “You have a call from all sources of what is going on, and a minute amount of awareness about it.” The person who says this seems to make the statement at a most unusual moment in the dream.

It begins with me sitting around with a number of other guys. I have a Bud Light that I have apparently ordered and I’m drinking it separately, by myself. As I’m drinking it I find myself, out of the blue, ordering a case of Miller Lite to go all around the table.

I take a bottle of Miller Lite and pour it into a glass. As I drink it, I find it’s really good. Another guy asks if the beer can be put into a glass and I kind of nod in the affirmative because that’s what I’ve done: why not put it in a glass?  

But then I go off on a rampage. I had been drinking the Bud out of a bottle and I’m announcing that it’s just absolutely horrible. Who ordered this stuff? I say, never let me order this ever again. It’s nearly undrinkable.

My demonstrative, reactionary behavior causes a scene. I’m so loud it’s obvious to everyone, and they can see that I’m serious. I’m so over-the-top about this beer being bad that everyone just starts laughing and laughing. 

I sell them completely on the idea that it’s bad because I really believe it. They find it funny that I’m drinking something that’s that horrible. Then one guy, who had been laughing with everyone else, looks at me in a strange, somewhat serious way, and makes the statement that jars me awake: “You have a call from all sources of what is going on, and a minute amount of awareness about it. “

What does this show me? These two dreams are a continuation of the ideas expressed in the dream earlier that night (see A Touch of Mink).

Next time we’ll look at how all three play off the same central themes.
