oceanThe world we appear to live in has been called an illusion, or a reflection. This implies that there is something else from which this illusion arises. Think of it this way: if we stand on the shore and look at the ocean, everything below the surface is unknown to us. So, what we do is we put all our attention on the waves breaking on the shore, and lose our connection to the infinite depths of the water. We are meant to see beyond the first layer of manifestation, the physical, and connect to the essence from which it arises.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: Again, we’re still dealing with the subject, as you said, in terms of making a decision, or doing something that has to do with an energetic that arises from a certain quality of the way you hold yourself, or carry yourself, as a sense of balance, or stillness, in the outer. And then, what rises out of that stillness of things, and where does that fit in? Or how does that fit in? Or does it fit in? 

And so first of all, I have to make a report to myself in that everything in the outer is a reflection to the essence – which exists as a stillness within. 

To begin with, in the meditation, I am abiding in the stillness, not identified in any way, whatsoever, to a thought and mannerism. In other words, just sitting in the stillness. So I see a subtle effect make itself known to me, in the outer, as a projection thought coming out of the stillness.

It seems harmless enough, initially. The unfoldment in the next reflective image, and which you could say is now more like the thought being made manifest in the outer, and is now like a tangible and alive projection – it has the whole sense of taking on a life of its own. 

The final images have taken a sequence of dream images that have captured my attention, and they have now put this into motion. The challenge upon denoting this is, am I conscious enough to honor the stillness from which the reflections are derived? Or do I buy into the reflections as if there is a meaningfulness in the reflection? 

So the significance of the dream, the meditation dream, is that the theme is a looking at outer reflections to denote, therein, the stillness that exists, with the challenge being, am I able to do this and mirror the stillness’ essence while amidst outer reflections? Or do I stray? 

There is a saying, and the saying is, it is important to be in life, but not consumed by it. Or, to say this in another way, that I can be attentive to the essence of stillness in spite of the loudness of a projection, which exists as an illusionariness. 

Answer to the question: Dee had suggested that I need to look within to see, therein, if there is guidance. The issue has to do with an energetic projection. The dream is generically pointing out that the visibility is a bifurcation that is coming out of the stillness. The visibility is reflective, and reverberates on the inner stillness within – but can you hold on to it when you go into a bifurcation?

Or, said another way, stillness in its pure form exists prior to an embodiment, which seems harmless enough, as a thought, but reflections get denser and denser, in the outer, the more it emanates.

bigboaEverything we see in creation, where does it come from? Well, we can say that it comes from the Big Bang event, but what we really need to contemplate is the idea that it comes from something higher. After all, it is always: energy first, then matter, so everything that is seen has come from a more refined, purer state. And, in a way of thinking about it, we are trying to reconnect ourselves with that purer state, because what we are knows and recognizes where we come from, just like anything that is born recognizes its mother. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: My meditation dream kind of set the tone, in that, in the meditation dream, I suddenly have this inflection, in the meditation dream itself, in which I know that it is not possible for there to be anything in the reflective that is greater than the inner before me as manifestation.

In other words, what I’m trying to say here is when I look around, and I see whatever it is that I see going on around me, I can’t quite buy into anything that I see happening around me because, deep down, I know that it wouldn’t be there unless there was some other deeper stillness that it had risen up from.

So when I see something going on in manifestation, no matter how subtly it appears, there’s like a code language inside of me that says, okay, the corollary to that is a deeper stillness from which that rises. In other words, the outer way of being, the personal way of being, would be to act as if what one sees happening in the world around them is distinguished in some fashion, or greater than kind of a overall beingness or something. But, deep down, I know, how can that be?

It can’t be, it’s just a reflective, it’s just a flicker of a reflective that has come out of this overall beingness, and I just need to take it back to see that which is the essence, because it’s just the reflection of the essence, and the closest we get is, how pure of a reflection can it be, in relationship to the essence?

But it cannot be greater than the essence. All it can do is always approximate the essence; the essence is always something more, because this is always just a reflection. So, as a consequence, I know that manifestation is a reflection, like I say, of the vibrations, out of the stillness, and that this is a universal truth. A singular beingness is the stillness. Or, to put it another way, stillness is a universal truth in a nothing but nothingness.

And so when you look at all of the things that show up in manifestation, like cancer, or diabetes, or any other vibrational-affected condition, are arising up from the natural state of stillness, and manifestation is a kind of reverse-engineered stillness; by reverse engineered, it’s like the stillness is just naturally there and then out of that something bifurcates that exists. So it’s a reverse-engineered stillness that exists reflectively to portray the rising up, or the coming up, or the equivocation of a vibratoriness from the all-pervading essence of stillness.

Knowing this, whenever I see a reflection, knowing that this is how it is, I’d be this lightbulb moment instead of going down the state of something that’s going on inside of me and reporting back on that. Instead, I kind of stop myself because I know that the reflection I am perceiving is coming from the stillness.

So, okay, that’s the deeper thing to come to know, because I know that it makes no sense to settle for manifestation. In other words, the portrayals of manifestation, as if that is all there is. So I pause. And in pausing, I experience stillness. I know that the stillness is the end all, be all. That’s the graveyard for vibrations as they go back to their home, or to their source.

So, what I am saying is, the dream I am having as manifestation is sight and sound that does not really exist when in a pure stillness. In my meditation dream, I had image after image of things appearing to be going on that, deep down, I didn’t bite, or go into and try to describe – because they’re not real, because I am aware that such images are reflections, and reflections are manifestation.

Meaning: manifestation is a motion coming out of the stillness. A motion coming out of a stillness is a vibration. A vibration lives as manifestation. To go home is to go back to our essence – which is pure stillness.

So, when I woke up from my meditation dream, I was prepared to describe the vibratory state I went off into. I paused, as I knew deep down that this is nothing more than a state or states. That my true station is the one being stillness. I pause because deep down I know that I am not interested in settling for second-hand reports. Or, to say the same thing in another way, every state is a second-hand report of a vibration rising up from the station of oneness. If the station of oneness is stillness, as our birthright, then the journey from the alone to the alone is an essencing of stillness.

So, a punch line could be (could be many punch lines), but a punch line could be: so when a person makes what is deemed to be a profound statement, behind this, that kind of causes something to jerk and note that something more is going on, behind this statement are levels upon levels of thinking that’s brought to rest.

i78esWe may not always realize how much of the stress in our lives comes from a deep feeling of loneliness. Why would that be, even if we are surrounded by family and friends? Our strongest urge, which is built into our design, is to connect to the universe we have been born into. That is the connection we truly seek, and all other connections become a substitute for the universal one, which means they will never really fulfill the ache we feel inside. To be on a path is to find that connection, which offers the only true peace and settlement we will ever know. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: First of all I’ll go to the meditation dream. I see myself accomplishing the objective, which is to stop the doingness, and that effect leads to what I know it’s going to lead to. It leads to a stillness, a stillness that is everywhere. And then I suddenly go into shock.

Now suddenly there’s nothing to see. Existence as me is no more. I hadn’t realized that it could be like that, and I find myself scrambling to come up with a way in the nothingness, because all of a sudden when I went into shock I went into shock because all vibration disappeared, and when all vibration disappeared, I disappeared – and so what is there?

And so I wake up unable to find a cope-ability, or any capabilities, unable to find anything, in the absolute emptiness. In other words, it’s just a void, not even a vibration. It’s the epitome of true death. I can find no relatability that exists, whether positive or negative, there’s just nothing because I don’t exist – so there is no longer a knower and known. I can’t say anything about anything anymore because there isn’t a functional beingness for that.

So then I have the consequence. To glimpse absolute death is shocking. It can’t be done. My definition of death always carried a reference to a vibration. In other words, there was always a permeating vibration. You didn’t really die. You went to the other side, or something. To be without a vibration is a void without any cognitive at all, and so, when it was like that, I mean the epitome of where there’s really a true despair, a true breaking down of it all, that is when I got it. God is in the soul, or in that vibration. And the heart knows no death. It has to embody the universal soul of all of existence, or of all of everything. Since the soul never dies, God is everywhere.

So the conclusion is, since there is no death, because apparently there is always a beingness that aspires, that’s why there is no death, that means that the path of peace is a never-ending need for access, for access. Aspiring to access, peace is to engage the reflective that comes out of the essence, which is like the thoughts. Reflections don’t exist separate from the essence. There is nothing but essence, therefore essence is our definition of peace. Peace and essence are synonymous.

So anyway, what is the significance of this dream? Manifestation was not designed to be an angelic, sacred, in its absolute way that way, as the heart would like. Manifestation reflects or portrays the reflective consciousness of man in creation, while at the same time it embodies a deeper inner truth and essence that can be experienced, in spite of the misuse and abuse, or of the collective consciousness of things that are thoughts-upon-thoughts in disarray, is another way that one could kind of say it.

So I have to put my focus and attention upon what is important. If I fail to see the beauty that transcends the ignorance and views, I will remain wounded and out of touch. From the first dream I am able to see that I cannot ignore the vibrational essence of my beingness. This vibration radiates out over all I look out over.

There is plenty of evidence regarding how dire everything is. In the meditation dream, I reach a point where I actually give up, I check out, and lose the vibrational thread, even though that thread may be something that’s beat down, you can hold onto a more conscious aspect and raise something up. If beaten down enough you can actually lose that thread that’s meant to permeate creatively throughout the universe.

Such a vibration is part of the vastness of the heart. If it wasn’t there in the heart in this capacity nothing could exist. In the sleep dream, to be conscious is to accept what is and how I find it, both above and below, without any illusions about it all. You’ve got to be careful how you positively glorify things, yet at the same time, underlying it all is this uplifting, reverent, and divine heartfelt quality that you have to access, that you can’t lose track of, because it lays the seed for a transformation of what has occurred over a long course of misuse and abuse.

The rubbish of the outer is still there. I mean it’s going to take generations to transform this dump. In other words, those cans don’t just go into soil. They’re metal cans and whatnot. It takes a long, long time for them to be absorbed, which is a fact of life and a consequence of man’s mannerisms and attitudes from an unconscious history which is subject to change and transformation when it realizes the aliveness and divinity of a greater inner beingness. In other words, things come from within, the essence is from within, but from without one has been really wayward and unconscious.

So, as in the meditation dream, the heart is meant to sweep over all that there is, and, in doing so, the essence, that essence becomes all-pervasive. This underlying essence is the peace we seek. Outer reflective conditions in manifestation are reflective of both our lower-self and higher-self nature. Manifestation is the means by which we are able to transcend our plight and get closer to the all-pervading essence which permeates revelationally for those with eyes to truly see, and ears to truly hear.

Such revelation is not naïve, or overly angelic, innocently. In other words, it has to hold the vibration, the contrast. It is out of the collective dense unconscious outer reflection and appearances that a seeing and hearing is possible. What ensues is a redeeming, in other words what can ensue, in other words if you don’t just collapse and go like in the meditation dream into a void in which there is no spark whatsoever, what can ensue is a redeeming, reverent, and revelational revelation which heals the pain, suffering, and wounds that prevail in the outer, the outer being again a mirror image reflection of things, reflected into the lower self in terms of what we have done during the unconscious stages of evolvement of our being, in which the essence behind it all was disregarded.

Because if we don’t do that, and the heartfelt vibrations, so it seems from the meditation dream, could get so displaced that, as in the meditation dream, there would be a non-vibrational vacant void. That would be the end of everything.
