EntanglementIt’s getting more clear every day that this current batch of humans is not capable of fixing what is wrong in the world – mostly because they’re either invested in it staying the same, or they’re living in denial about the state of things. One thing seems certain: the only solutions for the problems of today need to be spiritual solutions. This mean that human life and its designed purposes are what the society as a whole supports. When there is a problem or a question, it gets resolved from the perspective of what is best in keeping with higher purposes.

John: I dreamt the accentuation of the masculine that is looking at things in a masculine way, and how dire that is if you really, really do admit just what it is that’s behind it.

And then I dreamt how that has to succumb to an inner divine principle, that is imbedded, and is at the depths of all that there is. And that it is the rising up of this that is the transformative and intertwining way to enable a oneness to come back into manifestation – to be awakened from the depths already embedded, but hidden and repressed, that lies in manifestation

And the degree of things, to keep that from happening, and how anything that contends with that, that tries to offset that, or compete with that, or contend with that, are everything that is in that same motif in some way, shape, or form as an outer reflective appearance, in other words, of an outer flow way, is doomed and destined to collapse.

In other words, no matter how secretive, or hidden, or cute it is, or how well intentioned it is, anything in that direction is destined to go nowhere. And so, if your perspective is of that, then it’s hopeless.

And so the interesting thing about a dream like this is it’s re-accentuating the significance and importance of the feminine principle that has gotten cut off from its way of being, in terms of the intertwined flow, in terms of the breath even. You know, the inner breath is just taken for granted. The out-breath is what people pay attention to. The inner breath is just subjectively inflective. You know, it’s kind of like if your tendency is to acknowledge the outer breath, and not the inner breath.

I remember when I first came before the teacher he was stressing the importance of the inner breath, and I went up to him and I said I don’t know what that is, I don’t experience that, I just notice the dynamic behind the outer breath. And he indicated, oh, that’s okay – meaning okay for now, but eventually, of course, the inner breath is what has to awaken because it’s the outer breath that has the masculine quality trait that is only cycling in an outer motif way. It is that which has, no matter how educated, clever, or even seemingly conscious it gets, it can’t change anything.

And it is this principle that occurs all the time, when a person has a problem in their life, they typically don’t know how to ask for help from within, and they tend to try to rearrange the deck chairs of things in the outer – as if that’s going to resolve or satisfy things. And, up to a degree, one should say that has been allowed to work like that in intermittent ways in the past, but now it’s gotten to the point where everything has gotten so speeded up or whatever, or come to such a focal point, that nothing works, so you can’t deceive yourself that way anymore if you’re truly honest. You have to admit that, whatever you do in that regard, is wrong as far as what is the inner divine design. You know, it’s estranged from that.

In the meditation dream, I looked at what I am describing to be a breakdown, tear in the fabric of life, and that this breakdown tear of the fabric of life is responsible for what is occurring and is imminent. The effect of the tear has two sides to it.

On the one hand, there is more havoc and mayhem, and on the other hand the access to the inner design behind creation is easier to access. It’s kind of like maybe a grace principle to try to contend with things. The current state of things outwardly is on shaky grounds. However, the inner experiences that probe more deeply behind the mask is there as a possibility for those who seek to break out of their amnesic trance. It is as if the principle of the hidden wholeness has lost its temper. The fabric is torn and cannot be fixed.

There is no answer for this in terms of an economic system in life, which is dysfunctional, and so in other words if you follow that through the economic wobbly countries are going to go over an edge, and this is going to affect the most sophisticated outer systems as a domino effect occurs. Nobody wants to accept that this is inevitable. Everyone wants to believe that there’s a fix that is possible, but we are a global society moving towards oneness, so the breakdown, in other words, the flip side of the movement without the divine, in other words, everything is moving to coming together as a type of oneness, like one world order and all of this kind of stuff, so the flip side, the negative side of this one and the one in the hands of the powers that be that are in the outer will make the breakdown infectious.

Deep within there are those who are able to look at the situation straightaway and see it for what it is. Other individuals approach this in another way. In other words, what I just described is a way of seeing things as it is just using the outer, just looking at the outer and seeing, you know, this can’t continue. And then there are other individuals that approach this in another way, such as being aware of the plight of Mother Earth and noticing that a shift in our habitat is coming. But, what is even more interesting, is that some are able to look at the crack in the fabric of life and see the inner imprint behind the chaos and, in doing so, go within even deeper and look at the inner unfoldment.

Instead of dwelling upon the problem that is going to disrupt and disturb, there is the solution on the inner, in that it has a soothing comfort zone that is quiet and dormant. Some individuals, I mean those that are on a path, can see the inner situation design, you know almost unwaveringly, and know that on the inner all is well.

It is not well, however, in terms of any expectations in which a happy outer ending is possible. The disruption and disturbances from the fabric crack in the outer are not fixable in terms of the outer, and the outer chaos and breakdown that is sitting there kind of on the verge of going over further edges, is inevitable. But from a solution-oriented inner, there is a soothing relief for those who are able to go along with the flow without cracking up in some outer way or another.

Those who are solution oriented cannot have any attachment, not even an attachment to an outer quality of life, personal well being, and, to put it bluntly, any crutches to lean upon, because everything is, from an outer perspective way of seeing things, going to get torn askew. Our idea of an aliveness and safety net, or out clause, is no longer a viable option for positioning purposes. No one can get out of this.

The shift that is coming is taking life as we know it to a whole other place. No one knows what that is going to be like because it has never occurred in an outer-context way before. In other words, this is the first time that mankind has done things to destroy it all. There is one comfort or solace to lean upon, and that rule of life is on a divine lens and level of wholeness which embraces the fact that energy is neither created nor destroyed but just transformed into another state. What that will be like, on an experiential level, is an unanswerable outer mystery.

So, what this meditation dream is doing, because it is going back and forth with kind of the literalness of what is visible in the outer, and taking that in as a kind of shock, and, at the same time, knowing that there is an inner enlightenment where that’s accentuated at this period of time.

When things get really dire it seems like something within also gets easier and closer to the veils between the two places, between that inner now, gets thinner as well. Yet in terms of the outer loudness of things, it seems like it’s on an impossible to fix collision course.

And so a dream like this points to what we know as life perhaps changing to something that we had no cognition of at this time. You know, maybe we become beings of light or maybe, you know, everything in terms of manifestation goes through a process in which it’s not what we are accustomed to thinking, and that we are something entirely different when this is over. That’s what a dream like this is inclined to think. In other words, giving the outer, and what it is representing, giving it a lot more due than perhaps it should be getting.

recklessIn yesterday’s dream, John struggled with a situation where nothing went as planned (see Shattered Expectations). In this next dream, he finds himself naked and looking for a towel to dry off. When we leave our comfort zones in life, we are thrust into the unknown where we feel naked and unprepared – in other words, vulnerable. In these changing times, we need to discover how to trust in our ability to flow with events, without expectations.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: In the next dream there’s a shower area. It’s like a separate shower room area, and I come out and I’m all naked and wet, and I don’t see a towel readily there. So I go across over to the main house, which is actually a type of salon.

And directly to the right in the corner is what looks like a big towel folded up. And a person has their back to me, who is working, you know, who is the main person in this house, the salon owner or whatever, and she’s at one of her stations with her back to me. 

I don’t see anybody there, but she’s there, and so rather than ask, because even walking in there doesn’t feel right, I just go over to this large towel I see folded up in the corner, and I pick it up and it even unfolds.

I realize it is way too big, but now I’m in trouble because I realize well, I can’t be using this and I’ve helped myself to this towel without asking. And again, just like I was out of balance when I walked into this place, now I feel even more off because this isn’t okay to just grab this towel.  

When I see it is too large, then, after the fact, which isn’t going to work, I say to her, “I suppose I shouldn’t use this.” She goes, “Yes, you’re right.” 

The towel has two parts to it, and one part falls separate from the towel and she folds it up. Well, I take the other part that has gotten unraveled and I try to fold it up, but it’s ridiculous. I don’t know how to fold this thing. So in frustration she looks and says, “Let me do it.” 

She says that this is used more as a blanket. It’s a bigger towel and is used to cover something up to keep it warm or something. Another person comes over, who has an interest in this blanket towel, and she’s still acting as if she’s being inconvenienced, or put out in some fashion, and charges him $5 more to use it. He asks, “Is that legal?” She says, “You bet it is.”

So what is going on is an inconvenience I feel over how things are, is causing an estrangement. I have left an area where everything is taken into account, and gone into a place where the order of things is different. Nothing I do is right.

I mean, I shouldn’t have necessarily left the area. There was supposed to be everything there, and I’ve gone into an area where I don’t know. It’s a whole different scenario. It operates on a whole different octave.

What is provided there are not towels for drying off, they’re more like big towels like blankets that are used in a whole different process. So, whatever I do isn’t right, and I can feel the imbalance and the uneasiness that exists sets off a domino effect as other things are disturbed. And I notice the awkwardness and have no idea how to rebalance the scenario.

The meaning is: I’m out of place from where I’m mean to be.

Jeane: I am in a regular kind of room with a bed near the door, and there is a man lying on that bed. I am sitting on a chair; I feel like a man in this dream. On the other side of the bed, on the far wall are round disks that have a button right above them or right in the middle of them. It seems as if they are part of an alarm system. I have the impression that we are guarding something or someone; it’s almost like we are guarding the president.

So, I am sitting still in the chair and the other man is sleeping or lying down on the bed. I can sense a flickering or something in the lights and I know there is something wrong. I stand up and walk around to where the alarm is; to the part that is my alarm. While I am doing this, I suddenly sense that the man on the bed might be an enemy. He might be part of an assault or attack, or whatever the problem might be. So I announce out loud that I have already activated the alarm, thinking that he might interfere with me before I get to it. Then I do get over and push the button. I walk past it and want to open the door to the hallway, but I have this feeling of unease because my sense is that the other guards and the people outside should be here by now, and I can’t hear any sounds or see any lights out there. So I have this sense of unease that something is wrong and I wake up.

John: So this is a dream that has built on something that occurred in real life. You’re holding a space (the room), but something isn’t coming together in terms of the masculine flow (the man sleeping on the bed, i.e., me), or a quality of bringing energy through. You are being vigilant in terms of your energetic presence, waiting and alert, but this other energetic is laying down.

So something isn’t coming together, and you start to wonder if, because it’s not coming together, then maybe it’s the enemy. You were feeling, as part of your overallness or a higher self-inflection, that with the combination of you and that energy, something important was being sustained. But because there is something about the energy that is represented as lying down, that is not on the job even though you are vigilant, it means that it is slacking off, and perhaps is the enemy.

This dream is portraying the idea that when something needs to happen, and it doesn’t happen, time runs out. That’s one way of seeing it. Another way of seeing it, on a more personal level, is that when you feel that something needs to happen, and it doesn’t happen, then it means it’s carrying on against you in some way. That’s an interesting thought, isn’t it?

I think that’s a quality or trait of the feminine nature. If something isn’t in flow, then the feminine begins to feel insecure and wonders if she is still appreciated. Then she will often try to overcompensate in order to get a reassurance that everything is okay. But this process is destabilizing to your flow in terms of what you are meant to hold together as an overall space. It takes you astray to have to ponder whether this energy is an enemy or not. So the energy is no longer functioning as part of you; it’s not an aspect that you can identify with – it has become lazy.

So, I would say, this dream brought you some completion from something that occurred personally, as a kind of breakthrough, even though it is completeness in a different way. We have a peculiar belief that everything has to end in a fairy tale. A lot of things do come together in a wonderful capacity, but they don’t look like fairy tales. When you are able to realize something, even if it looks like a disaster, to be able to grasp the image, means that something inside you gets it. So that’s a coming together.

In other words, it’s not an either/or situation where there’s the fairy tale ideal with the perfect ending, or otherwise it’s a total loss. It can also have a catastrophic ending, yet new understanding has been attained. Many teachers say that you learn more from mistakes than you do from successes. So you had a dream where you probably learned more than if the image had ended with a wonderful glow and you saving the day.

Maybe the drama can transform things, whereas the happy ending leaves nothing more to do. It seems like a drama can pull something through more quickly and more succinctly. We shouldn’t always see things in such a black-and-white way. In my experience you can get more value from things even if they are unpleasant at the moment.
