Posts Tagged ‘city and country in a dream’

crashWe may have learned how to pack for travel in light of the new airline fees and regulations, but do we understand the baggage limitations of our spiritual journey? If we were to fly away tomorrow, and we could only take a few things with us, what would those things be? Our need for safety? Our fears of the unknown? Our hesitations to trust in what we can’t see and touch? It’s an interesting consideration, because those precious things are the ones that will hold us back at the last moment, and keep us from making our next elevation and development. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Initially, I’m with a group of people, men and women. We’re young; we’re like college age or something. And we seem to be trying to make decisions about where we’re going to live, like whether we’re going to live more in a group setting, or get our own apartments. It’s as though whenever someone talks to one, you know, they’re trying to sway one, one way or the other.

And then we’re all going to get on a train that goes a little more into the country, I think. Now, as we leave for the train station, I have this sense that I’m not sure that I trust the whole system around our bags, but we’re supposed to leave them all behind and then they’re going to be loading them and they’ll catch them up with us.

And we seem to be taking these empty carts, like a grocery store cart almost, up to where we’re getting on the train. And I see that some people had grabbed some of their stuff, and I do have this sense that I’m not sure I like, or trust, the system, but it feels too late to go back and try to grab bags – so I just have to let it go.

I don’t remember the train ride, because it suddenly seems like we’re just in this house in the country, and different people are arriving earlier, and some are coming later. So there’s kind of a mix of who one’s talking to that might be different than before, and I feel like that there would be some pressure from some people when they arrive because maybe they’re interested in a relationship, so they would be pressing me to get my own place. And other people I’m there with are just fine with us all living more communally.

I’m standing over near a window at one point, and it feels like the young people I’m around are kind of having this conversation of having some confusion with their sexuality, because they feel like as they talk, and they get close to people, even if it’s someone that’s the same sex, they may feel more attracted – but that’s not normally how they identify themselves.

And then I go over from there, because I think someone arrived that I feel a little crowded by, and I want more space. And so I’ve left there and I’ve gone over and I’m standing on this stairway where there’s a bathroom above. And there’s a woman waiting for the bathroom, so I start talking to her. It’s like I’m waiting my turn for the bathroom or something; she feels like someone that I can talk to about what I’m noticing going on around me, and I think that was when the phone rang.

John: Your dream, if you follow it energetically, seems to be a progression towards more a complete breath. To begin with, before you get on the train, you’re kind of in the world, or in the city of things, and those indulgences just kind of have a way with you that kind of keep you in their trance.

Then when you get on the train, it’s like traveling towards God, or trying to travel towards God. You’re caught in kind of this period of time that yo-yos back and forth: do you have everything with you from the city? And yet are you traveling in the right way? And then you have the illusion kind of hitting a type of destination.

In other words, you make a distinction with it, in that you point out that one arrives at a place that seems okay, but isn’t actually really quite okay, either, because you’re still trying to sort out. You’re now able to look at things a little differently, and able to sort out what has a magnetic pull, or attraction to you, and what doesn’t.

When you’re initially just in the dumb outer, the natural physical world of things, you don’t have any sense of anything more going on, you can seemingly enjoy that because you don’t know any different or any better. And in a way that can even seem like that’s all that there is. But once you start on a path of looking for something more, and trying to see what you can take with you in terms of that something more, that’s when you start playing in this in-between zone of trying to sort things out.

And in that sorting out, you’re making a distinction that there really is something more, that there is a quality of a home, and in that quality of a home you reach a point, where, on a magnetic level, you’re looking then at what you feel you need, which is still a type of indulgence. In other words, instead you’re even subtler with this in terms of what you’re looking to sustain, or maintain, in terms of the outer in your home, or as an innerness. And that is the realm of the spirit.

In other words, it’s able to reduce things into a really, really fine sort of state, but it’s still caught in that, and so you can have a certain sense of balance, and completeness, but it’s still not the original breath. The key is a recognition that goes to a letting go of any kind of buying and selling, even on a subtle level like the spiritual illusion level, or when you’re yo-yoing.

And the key is to let go of all of that, in order to hit the magnetized breath, that encompasses the wholeness of everything that there is in all of life. And the way this develops, or the way this helps a human being, is that the original breath kind of becomes a sort of magnetized naturalness that is charged with a more all-encompassing, inclusive energetic, and that the indulgences, that had been in the city, you really do see as nauseous now, when before you didn’t necessarily see them as nauseous.

And thus you were still sorting things out, in terms of what bags to take as you were attempting to do something anew. And you were still trying to then take those bags, reduce them to something of a subtler need, and still keep this subtler need in a place that was more like home, which is a spiritual illusion, because those bags had now turned into a type of spiritual essence quality, brought with you to a home.

But you make headway against this middle area, the subtler second breath, you make headway against it only by holding the original breath and thus you see the nausea of experiencing in the outer.

When you’re able to see the nausea of experiences that are just strictly in the outer, meaning with the mind senses only, it becomes more and more difficult to try to take some sort of mind sense orientation with you, or baggage as you would call it. And then from baggage to something of a subtler essence spirituality, into your home, which again is just a finer substance of the baggage, and the baggage being what you are reserving your right to hold onto, that is quasi-personal, still personal, but an aspect that is not totally indulged, that you are attempting to travel with.

By letting go of that, you are put in a position to where the yo-yoing and the spiritual illusion aspect of things is something that you’re able to make headway with, even though they’re subtler, and harder, to work with, because they still have as a foundation of a substance the shell orientation, not the essence orientation, not the orientation that’s one of light.

It’s easier to come to grips with the yo-yoing where you’re taking baggage back and forth, trying to take baggage with you from the city to some place that you’re going, and it’s harder when you get to what you think is a home and you still are holding to your spiritual ideals, or images, and that is a subtle personal aspect. It’s harder to let go of that, but it is made easier, the recognition is made easier, when you have taken and died, so to speak, to the idea that there is something in the outer that can be utilized, or experienced, in some edification way.

So the more grounded you can be, towards the density of that outer breath, and not caught in any of that, the more you’re able to truly adhere, or in that more holding on to the original breath, that is the only means by which you’re able to see the limitations of the other quality.

When you go into the original breath, which is magnetized, you sort out the two. In other words, as things get subtler, and you’re carrying your spiritual illusion up, and things are brighter, they cannot get to the total stillness of where the in-breath turns to the out-breath because you’re still holding on to spiritual illusions. It can have a real angelic quality to it in terms of how you can convince yourself that this is meaningful.

On the flip side of that, is where that energetic that can’t be lived in a stillness, is trying to come down into manifestation. And so it is only the holding onto the original breath at the top that you pull those two together.

When you let go of it, when you hit the heart breath, or just let go of the mind sense orientation, then that is when you have the deeper realization of something in terms of what you really are all about, in terms of this complete stillness, or in other words devoid of spiritual illusion, and devoid of the need to try to steer something in some capacity.

When you are like that, then, this other vibration, which is the only aliveness that there is, the magnetized vibration is the only aliveness that it is, it then is able to play in a way through the human being that is really quite magical. And change then can happen, and shifts can then happen. And to the degree that the human being is still functioning in life just like everybody else, no one notices, because their mind is caught up in having to sort out and make sense of things.

A3n34It’s one of the very difficult things to do, to incorporate into our daily process what insights and understandings we have found, or come to know. And it’s difficult because we have a lifetime of patterns and ways that we identify as “us.” Yet in the work of a journey we seek to remake ourselves in accordance with what we now believe, and that requires constant repetition, and trial and error, as we learn how to apply the inner into the outer in our lives. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I don’t remember the very beginning of the next dream but, essentially, I have moved into a town. It’s like I’ve moved from a very pretty mountain town on a lake, down to a slightly larger town. They’re not that far apart, but they’re very different.

And I’ve settled in there and I’m living then with the man I’m with, but I have a very good friend that has moved up to where I used to live. And it feels like I want to go visit her, but I also am feeling this pull to go back to the mountain town, maybe even live there again temporarily. I’m not sure. I don’t know if I could get the man I’m living with to agree to that, or not, either.

But I decide to go up there and explore. And, when I go up, I know a house there and even though the house has been remodeled many times, I know that it’s a house where a woman leases out rooms, or certain levels, to people, and I know her. I’ve maybe even stayed there before at one point in my life.

So I actually go up, and she doesn’t appear to be home; and I go in. Then I hear a dog growling, but I know it’s a dog that I know so I even let the dog into the house. And then she comes down from another room, then I kind of look around, and then I discover my friend that had moved up there and I’m also aware there’s some events going on in town, some of which I might want to see, but I’m also on a schedule where I’ll have to get back at a certain hour.

But my friend wants to give me a little bit of a massage before I leave, so I go out to the backyard and lay down on the grass and she gives me somewhat of a massage, but I suddenly realize that I’m very short on time and I want to get back before dark. And there’s still something that I want to see that’s happening in the town, so I hop up.

She gives me a little kiss and we go over to where I think my clothes are, and I start to put on one dress, it’s a black dress, but very pretty, but in a very old fashioned style that comes all the way down to the feet, and I realize it’s not my dress. It’s a dress the landlady had made and sewn from an old fashioned pattern, so it’s quite lovely, but I realize it’s not mine. So I fold it up, and then I find my clothes there and get dressed.

And I’m wondering if it’s going to work out for me to move back to the area for awhile, because I’d have to talk my boyfriend into it. And right before I go back, it feels like I go to another area of a town to where there’s like a street parade or something going on that I just kind of want to catch a glimpse of. That was the end of the dream.

John: Wow, that’s really a deep dream. And, it’s interesting how what you’re dreaming still works so much so in terms of looking at how something comes from inner into outer, or how outer plays with inner. It’s almost as if one’s been flooded by, as a scenario, the microcosmic effect of life in relationship to, and its correlation, I should say, to the internet of everything; the internet of everything in the microcosm of outer life.

And then there’s the offset of the inner net of everything. And so with that being kind of the overriding motif, what you’re doing is you’re looking at where you are in relationship to, let’s say that as an influence factor. In the first dream you’ve pointed out that you have to hold a position, maintain a position, not overstretch from that position, so that an access of innerness coming into the outer can come through, and awaken, and invoke a clarity.

In the second dream, you have a choice of going back to something that you remember from long ago, which is like a mountain town, or it’s like a raw energy having been refined, and that you are able to go there and appreciate a closeness to something deeper than a denseness, or what would be considered a denseness, that’s more in the outer, in the lower, larger town that you find yourself to be situated.

And the thing is, is you’re playing with the breath multiple times. It’s like you started more from on high, and then you brought something down into life, and you expanded and spread yourself out into the wholeness of life, in the city. And have learned that it’s important to be there, taking things in, and yet at the same time you have some knowledge of this other, inner place.

You’re not questioning or challenging the orders of things, in terms of being in the equation of manifestation; you’re not questioning or challenging it. You’re fully okay with that, and yet still have a memory of something more, at a deeper level inside, and the scenario that you’re in, and the relationships that you have, involve having connected with a guy, a person that you’re with in terms of this outer, who it took effort for him to come down and be in the outer because he had been more natural in kind of this innerness space.

And so once he’s come down and gotten accustomed, and accommodated, in the outer, for him then to go back to the inner – would he be violating his orders? In other words because, in a sense, he was required to come down. And so then to go back to the other, would that be a breaking away of kind of an intent that was meant to be, in terms of the flow, in terms of him coming down?

Now it wouldn’t be if he is able to look at the situation, if you’re able to go back into the innerness. In other words, what opens up in the feminine is something that then, when it’s opened up, is like a handing back to someplace else. Now it wouldn’t be a crackup, or a breakup, or deviation if he is able to go back into this higher place, or higher-self part, or realized side, the essence of himself. If he’s able to go back and look at that, and yet know that the directive is to maintain the journey, or this whole quality of a workability of inner and outer at play.

So, in other words, you’re playing with this dynamic; you have to hold a continuity of a type of tension together in order for something to become visible, and you’re pointing this out to yourself in terms of the process of awakening working like that because that is how you see yourself situated, in terms of what is going on in life around you.

So it’s as if it’s being explained to you, in this dream, what the dynamic is that you’re facing. And this dream is like also explaining the dynamic that a whole bunch of people are facing, and it’s also explaining a dynamic of the times in that if a person doesn’t shut things out they’ll realize that there is a huge awakening of things going on, and yet at the same time there is the need to be able to hold a certain sense, as well, and you have to hold the sense to manifestation, and the importance of the overallness of that, and yet be able to go back to the innerness.

The masculine has to come down with the innerness into the outerness, and yet it’s important that it remembers what the space looks like, and is like, even though they’re not allowed to stay there, that it’s important for them to know what that is like. They can be more effective at coming into the outer if they follow the prime directive, premeditated, condition of what that is like – but not leave the journey, hold to the trueness.
