i21112sWe can think of it this way: in any type of serious relationship we commit ourselves to (a partner, our children, a work project) we must begin to put the needs of that relationship before our personal needs. We pay more attention to the subtleties, and respond in the best way we can to support the bigger picture of what we hope that relationship can blossom into. It is just this way with our unseen relationship and, by paying close attention, we develop our ability to understand what is required. It’s impossible to let go of our self all at once, yet we can put new foundations into the bigger relationship, and then we grow into it as it grows.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: And so now I go into my approach of trying to contend with this. In other words, before this was just an experience, and now I’m contending with it in the dreams. So to begin with I’m in a large empty warehouse. I’m talking to Dean on the phone. He asks what I think is going to happen to the price of silver. I say, “It is going down.”

He seems surprised. I say to him, “I think I can explain to you by looking at this from the standpoint of what is going on in the outer.” In other words, there’s an energetic there and that energetic, how that energetic is, explains why something that may not make sense rationally, why it’s going down, I’m proceeding to say that I’m not quite sure; I haven’t quite reached inside to grab to do that. I can feel the articulation inside of me, but I haven’t pulled it out.

When, all of a sudden, I see some ruffians, a gang, trying to break into the place, into this warehouse, this empty warehouse I’m in. This is a huge empty warehouse, and I’m on the far side of the warehouse, and I see them trying to pry the door open.

So I say to Dean, “Hold on,” as I drop everything and proceed to immediately make my whereabouts visible so they will go away. In other words, they think that it’s abandoned and they can come in and rob it or whatever they’re going to do. First of all, it’s empty anyway, but that’s the nature of things; if it’s empty then there’s always got to be something you can carry away.

So the meaning is that on an energetic, inner level, I am situated in a place of emptiness. Outside of this space things are falling apart. To try and explain why that is strains the relationship I have in terms of where I am at. The dream is saying “hold on,” and, at the same time, I am making myself visible.

The theme of dreaming has to do with how do I relate to a self when waking up upon the plane of the soul, a place of nonbeing. The dream is an answer to that question. The answer is hold on and, in the holding on, I make myself visible in the empty space. Because the energetic theme of that is that of waking up upon the plane of the soul which, said in other words, is a die before you die. This being a dynamic where the physical senses mind no longer dominate, and that dynamic, in other words, is said to die, I am okay in hanging on and making the presence of the soul a more visible sensation in the empty space I am in.

So you could see the quibbling, and I go image after image where I quibble about this first one way after another, and then there are two images which further explain the dynamic I am contending with that is affecting my attention on a theme of waking up on the plane of the soul as the subject matter.

In the first image my response to this, as a process that I am having to contend with, is it is an issue I am not sure I can handle. In other words, there is a rearguard comment: I am just trying to survive. And I’m making this comment, and I’m inside a plane that’s flying high up above, and suddenly I’m jarred awake because a missile is hitting the plane.

Meaning: There is an awakening that is imminent. In other words, you’re not going to avoid it. However, it’s not all black-and-white like that, because here comes the next image.

In the next image I’m at a teller at a bank, kind of proceeding at the teller. The appearance is that I’m going to make a deposit, or I’m going to make an installation into life is what it amounts to, but there’s something that’s not quite fully sure of that. And that has to do with $100 that I gave someone, and that person is in the back of the line observing me, in other words, is part of a process, has an issue in that the person with $100 is not going to deposit that $100 until they make sure that I did my deposit. In other words, did I commit or not, you know, which way did I go? How did I do this?

The meaning is the awakening that is meant to be, and the seeing and knowing therein, is a tentative condition, in other words, it’s not certain. It is dependent upon whether or not I follow through with an inner beingness or not. I say that because in the first image, and in the meditation dream, I am reacting to this sudden shift as if it is too much for me.

Apparently there is a part of me that actually thinks it is dying. For that to be true means that, on the physical level, there is still a way I like seeing myself. So, in other words, the bewilderment is such that something can’t quite quicken energetically, $100 representing an energetic. Something can’t quite quicken energetically if you don’t figure it out, if you don’t come to grips with how it’s meant to be.

So, in the next image, I’m in another room of a house wondering how it is that I am handling the changes that are happening. I go into the little bedroom and in this room is a person who is hooked up to an IV machine.

Meaning: The theme is that, as a result of a pent up force, as portrayed in the meditation dream, I am wondering if it is possible to function on the soul level as a non-self reality. The other dreams are indicating that I’m having trouble accepting this shift, on a soul level, as a reality and am fighting on behalf of a dense physical energetic level as being important, too. So in this image I am noticing that the waking up process is engaged and I am contending with this unknowable shift by keeping myself tied to an outer orientation through artificial means. The artificial means in manifestation has to do with holding onto and injecting myself with an image of self.

And then in the last one I wake up saying to myself that, in the outer, there are certain things that are not going to change. That it is just going to have to be that way.

And the significance, or what is going on, is I am contending with the here and there of my beingness, above and below, and I know that the plane of the soul is a plane of existence, yet this is also a plane of existence. I am both.

In the prior dreams, there’s a concern about losing the here and now of physical existence. Why the drama? Apparently I’m concerned about the ramifications of what is occurring with regard to what is entailed in the waking up process. I’m not convinced that the waking up on the plane of the soul isn’t a kind of checking out from physical manifestation and, as a result, I am concerned about the appropriateness of such a shift.

spirituali-wIn a life we may uphold many principles that guide our journey: we’re honest, and will never take anything that isn’t ours; we’re compassionate, and will never hurt anything unless our life is threatened. Yet to make progress on our spiritual path, we must adhere always to a higher principle. That principle could be: I’m in service to something higher, or however one would describe their human purpose. To uphold a principle means that we honor it in every situation. And that’s how our spiritual growth should look: we check everything we do against our highest principle and, even if we make mistakes, we make them with our best intentions. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in my meditation dream, I find myself placed in a position that proves that, in the outer, change occurs from the inner. In other words, the appearance as the outer can be pretty resounding that something else is being pointed out, or poked towards, as happening. There’s no vibrancy in that; it’s just an appearance.

And I’m being shown that to be able to read behind that, in other words, to look at the timeline of something, in the spatiality that exists, and to know what the actual pinpoint meaningfulness is.

So in the dream I’m looking at conditions in life and they seem to be unfolding in the outer as the outer is being shaped, in a scripted way, by man. The outer conditions portray a particular outer mannerism as prevailing, and yet there is a spiritual inner image power which is what really prevails in the dream, not the appearances.

Each thought that I feel in the circumstances, I seem to be off about any thoughts, or thinking, or mind that’s going on, because when I look at it in that way I expect something different to happen – it being obvious. And, if that were to occur of course, in terms of my senses and the feedback that I’m getting that has caused me to perceive in this way, it would be something that’s in repudiation of an established inner norm.

In other words, inside of myself I really do recognize and can see percolating around something as an inner to outer flow, but the outer can look so convincing that you can get sucked up in it. So when it comes down to the inner into outer result that night, in other words, in the day it’s one thing, in the night it’s another. At night what I touch and see within has a different established norm that prevails.

However, even though the effect of this I am told is established therein, circumstances in the outer belie or attempt to disprove this rule, such that, based upon appearances, you can expect a different result. But that’s not what occurs. That’s something that I just keep buying into all the time, that it’s going to be like that, because the inner into outer effect sets aside that quality -because it’s the inner that ultimately always prevails.

So the reason for the dream is it is pointing out to me that I am carrying within an attitude that renders a grief upon myself that is unnecessary. In other words, I do this when my attention is upon the outer and not yielding and paying attention to what I kind of know, at a very subtle level ,with inside of myself. What is pre-established as the norm, is what is designed to ultimately occur. Everything would be so much easier for me if I let go of my personal predilections – caused of course by the senses and such – and yield to the inner flow, and look to the inner flow, experience that inner awakening as a guidance.

I’m presently situated in an outer motif nature which defies the inner into outer entrenched, embedded flow, which is what this meditation dream is portraying. And so, consequently, when I’m like that I always have it wrong. I am suffering because I am still holding out a defiant discombobulation – when I should know better.

The rule to follow, that offsets misaligned outer circumstances, is to live and function off of the interest unfolding therein. In other words, if the innerness has something that has a base to it, and then it throws off something as a byproduct, which is like an interest, and you spin or live that interest. You do not relinquish the underlying principle of your being, you know, which is what you do if you try to make something out of the outer that isn’t.

Or to put it in another way, which says the same thing and also corresponds to what is going on with the inner self, I need to honor the principle unfoldment that I am in touch with at night and let the changes flow. Those principles are what I experience as a secret of secrets being the foundation of what there is when I go from outer appearances to the inner levels of my beingness, and set off an interest effect that plays out in the outer in a naturally honorable way, an unfolding way. You know, it’s like I’m in touch with that instead of groping to make something of a flow out of something that is reflective only.

The personal regard, in other words, when I’m trying to do it in the outer it’s a personal regard then, and that is a suffering because there are denials that tear away at the flow from within. There’s a repudiation of it in some sense where you’re trying to enforce your will instead of something that flows from within. That principle quality, that’s a wholeness. And so, to my great inner good fortune, I’m aware of this. I just need to yield to this unfolding therein.

Businessman in the middle of the maze. Challenge conceptsThe great simplicity, and the greatest secret, is that we humans are born on a planet to train ourselves to be useful to the purposes of the universe. We come here to learn, and we are meant to graduate from this nursery school and then begin our life elsewhere – according to what we have done here. But if we put all our effort into succeeding here, most of those skills don’t apply at the universal level; so we, in a sense, won’t graduate. We are free to choose our path and focus, but only our higher purpose is important and useful to the everything that is going on.

Jeane: So, in my first dream, I just seem to be studying something out, and I’m kind of looking at the judges on The Voice except, in my dream, I think there’s five instead of four. And they’re all in one kind of long, low building, and I’m just studying out and realizing that even if these particular people lost everything, that they knew how to rebuild it because they had built their careers on their own from the beginning. And so I just seem to be studying that out in the first dream. That’s my focus there.

John: Well, the theme of the dreaming has to do with being able to identify some part, a part, of one’s inner beingness that has a connection, or access, to a freedom and a way of being that is natural to the soul.

In other words, most people who are still trying to sort things out in the outer, and still kind of caught in the waywardness of separation, and having to contend with trying to do the best they can in terms of a world of complexity, and multiplicity, and all of that that they struggle with and contend with, the impression to that type of person, or the impression to those in the collective, is that it’s a hard row, and it’s a struggle to get out from the maze of it all.

And yet, when they do, the idea is that you’re getting out of the maze kind of by good fortune or something. However, what you’re seeing is that when you bring yourself up and connect yourself to a quality of completeness, which is the four judges, four represents a symbol of completeness, you recognize that in that setting of kind of an overview of a knowingness that extends beyond having to sort things out, that there is the natural quality imbedded within your being that it just doesn’t matter what goes on in the outer. You’re going to be able to be just fine.

What matters in the outer, matters for those who think that the outer is important. But when you have recognized the outer isn’t important, and have recognized something inside that is important, then you can lose everything in the outer, or it doesn’t matter what necessarily happens in the outer, because you have found the proper place upon which to rest with your quality of inner recognition, or sense of self, in other words, but sense of a higher self.
