A Common Flow

Is it possible that a form of life can exist and not be inherently interconnected with its environment? Anything that arises in an ecology must be a part of that ecology. Humans may feel themselves separate, but that is because we have stifled those natural connections through the centuries, and have turned to a reliance on our ego and brain for interactions with the things around us. But, as humans we are much more, and our spiritual journey must include reconnecting to what is natural in us.

Jeane: Okay, I really just remember my last dream. And, in this dream, I think you were there, and I was in a city that seemed to be being built out over water. Whatever formula was going on, whatever we were trying to do with people, or with building something, it wasn’t really working. And I could see things were going to crash and burn. 

On the other hand, I didn’t want you, or the people doing it, to give up too soon because I had this feeling that we could actually figure out the formula about why it wasn’t working. If we gave up too soon, and then people just tried something again and it still wasn’t working – but they wouldn’t know why. 

And I kept thinking that maybe if we could figure out what the formula was about why it wasn’t working, then we could figure out how to fix it. And if we gave up too soon, that wouldn’t work. But I don’t really know whether it was going to work, either.

John: The theme of the dreaming has to do with the fact that there is an interconnection to everything that exists, within everything that exists. It’s interconnected, intertwined, and that there’s a common flow.

First of all it’s interconnected, and it’s interconnected because it has a common essence, and it’s through this common essence that a common flow can occur. So the common essence could be, say, for example you can say the heart is the common essence from which a common flow is able to exist. And that common flow is where you end up with what is called an intertwined oneness. 

And so, we all have this as a core component, whether we acknowledge it, or recognize it, or sense it, in other words, just to what degree do we denote this is a whole other thing. Now, we are inclined to have this common essence as a naturalness, in terms of the oneness, this common essence in which a common flow is able to be there. And the way this common flow works results in an intertwined commonality. 

So, in a way, this may not make a lot of sense to physical appearances, in the world of physical appearances, that is, where you’re only taking something like that into account in a black-and-white way. However, because we can denote this other, within, where we have something more in common in an intangible way, and that there is a flow within all of that that is also there. 

If we’re just trying to look at it in a black-and-white way, it can be most bizarre. We have to let go, and take in, and abide in this common oneness of flow, and do so in a way in which we don’t thwart, with the outer, this naturalness that is in the inner. 

If we attempt to thwart in the outer this naturalness, which is in the inner, we choke ourselves off. We pinch the heart because the heart doesn’t function that way, even though it, in its denseness, can appear to be estranged. But the heart, basically, doesn’t function that way because the heart is the vehicle upon which everything connects and transmits through, and accesses through, or it absorbs all that there is and every mannerism in the wholeness of life. 

So, if we resort to the strict outer tools of things, and hear the echo of something that is meant to be in an intangible inner way, but can’t get out of the way of the outer reflective, then it’s going to be very bewildering. And it can give you a headache – and that’s what you were experiencing.

The Immenseness

We have, perhaps, been misled by language. We are told about our seeking, and our journey, and our connection to something greater, to what created us – as if everything we want is outside of us. Yet we also have come to understand that all those words apply to things within us, to our natural connections to the whole, and our innate desire to be unified again with our Creator. And our systems work constantly to help us find this place within, that has been with us from day one, that only awaits our awareness.

John: So the dreaming was about a type of capacity. And, in the meditation dream, the way it goes is I do not know of a solution, nor can I define how a solution is reached, nevertheless, I remain resolute that it exists.

It’s kind of like a type of faith, only this time we’re coming to recognize how you really define faith. You define faith upon something that is vibrating, that echoes as a quality, to a depth within. That’s what faith is. And you hold that, and it creates, it shapes from that spaciality. 

The reason I am like this, and I continue, unremittingly, in spite of appearances, is because I think and can denote a capacity inside of myself for more. Because I carry such an inner capacity, this means that the universe is being tweaked, in terms of there’s something that is coming alive. In other words, that’s breaking itself out of a denseness, or a quality in which the heart, which encompasses the world, breaks free. 

It’s a sheath that covers the heart, and it catches the first layers of things, like moods and stuff like that. And impressions get embedded on that, and it kind of acts as like a protective barrier for the heart. And that takes on the first impressions. And then, as you become more sensitive, that which comes in to that affects kind of from the bottom up, meaning you can feel the weight on the underside of the heart first. 

So what I am talking about is a condition quickened etherically in the heart. The condition is a feeling I have, which is unexplainable in a matter of words, but senses to a knowingness that lies within me.

The closest I could come to describing this is that I can feel, in the heart, an intangible, immenseness that is constantly resonating. The imagination for this capacity, you could say, is just a feeling that rhythms with the breath. So for reasons that are not explainable, I remain open to what is coming – without having to define it in some manner or another. 

Which means my heart is reaching beyond the denser, vibratory limitations of the outer that lies before me to an inner food that has a need to take in everything, everywhere, as being its greater aliveness. 

So then, in my sleep, there is an inner voice, which is saying, over and over again, don’t do it again.

Who I’m talking to is a side of myself in the denser outer that I do not judge because, deep down, I know that therein lies an alignability to a capacity able to experience life within a greater overall wholeness. 

So, what is coming out from within is this aliveness and need of feeling its presence within this greater beingness of self. So, in the dream, the greater beingness of self, you can denote almost as if like a type of going deeper within, to where something is being aligned, you can recognize a radical bifurcated echo that resonates from some sort of conditioned past. 

This past vibratory intensity is a Kundalini energy that is needed for guidance purposes, which exists concentrated as a pent up poignancy – which is being challenged to sort itself out.

The Service of the Heart

15eWe can see that the universe is unfinished. How? Because everywhere we look things are in process; organic life forms are being, doing, and evolving over time. So that must mean that everything is heading somewhere. But where? Well, at minimum, toward a better and better version of itself. And, for certain forms of life, like caterpillars and humans, and perhaps even a universe, that can mean an almost magical transformation. And in this process the universe is refining. An awakened human can consciously support and add to this refinement process – which is also a fast track, higher service to human transformation.

Jeane: So, in my first dream, I’ve gone to a meeting such as we were at last night, you know in a large room like we were in. And, while there, someone who supposedly knew a lot had advised people about a certain breathing pattern.

So I’ve gone back, and I’m in that room, and I’m following and traveling around the room using this breathing pattern. And other people might come in using other breathing patterns. And it’s almost like you think that if you use a certain breathing pattern it’s going to produce a certain result, but I realize after a while that, although many of us are doing this, that the person that gave this to us actually knew that it’s not going to do anything, that none of the breathing patterns are really going to do anything.

And, in fact, they might even have a plan as we’re all distracted with all this, to do something that assassinates something else. So it’s like no one really quite wants to abandon the breathing patterns, but I realize that you have to watch out for whatever this person’s up to behind all that.

John: Well, what your dream is telling you is that, first of all, you’re in a meeting or at an event or whatever it is, in this case it’s a meeting, and some part of you notices something that doesn’t quite sit well with you. Well, you don’t need to understand the thoughts of it; you just need to let go of it.

And so you let go of it by noticing how it is that your breathing pattern can be, or is. And then your dream goes on and tells you that it’s not the breathing pattern per se, which is very, very interesting because that’s a precursor, too.

In other words, the schematic of the dreaming last night was to take what occurred at this program, in which he dealt with some very basics that everyone has to contend with in life, on all levels, and he laid the seed, without even saying it, or at least not saying it directly, imputing it more than anything, imbedding it, helping it awaken in its imbedded fashion, something so much more than just those practices.

In other words, he did something like Hazrat Inayat Khan can do in that, in his presence, Hazrat Inayat Khan used to have people kind of fall asleep because in Hazrat Inayat Khan’s presence everything seemed so vivid, so aware, so alive, so quickened that the teaching was not in the words, it was in a quality of that person’s auric presence.

Well, he hides his auric presence because, if it is too obvious, then something doesn’t happen. So he presents the basic techniques that can be listened to in ways in which you can leave them as mundane, as just steps per se, that don’t go very far, or you can impute into them so much more.

And so you saw in your dream that what was going on at the meeting, even though it may have been mundane things, you saw that that was telling you something, that there was a way of seeing that that you could learn something from that, which means that you now needed to skip something. And what you needed to skip is when something came up and you noticed it, like what you noticed at the meeting, like a thought or something, you could drop it, or you could let it go.

Or, in the case of this meeting, you might not even necessarily know what it was but you could feel it. You could then adopt a way of breathing that kept you free from contamination, from being infected by that atmosphere. And then you came to realize in your dream, the most important thing in terms of the dream, is you came to realize that even the breathing technique – just like the way of dropping something without indulging in it – even the breathing techniques are a precursor to something more.

And what is it that it’s the precursor to? Well, it’s the precursor to a quality of a connection that embraces whatever it is that’s going on. Instead of the reaction that is going to be inclined to be a sorting out that is personal, you have an intertwinement that tends to pull everything together, that works for the whole. And what is the whole? The breathing is actually secondary, as well. It’s the heart that’s everything.

And I suppose, then, you could say the heart leads to the soul of something, or however that is, but that wasn’t what the dream is about. The dream is about, however, there being this something more, which I recognized was a kind of heartfulness, that exudes through everything, and that you facilitate that, not the breathing technique per se, which can maybe provide you some benefit and relief from being contaminated by an atmosphere in which you’re affected by things that are going on around you, some being thoughts you don’t want to have, and others just being the vibe of the place, you could go beyond that with the breath a little, but then that still is an avoidance, that still is a type of separateness, and then when you drop that as an intermediary step, even the breath being an intermediary step, because after that then comes the heart, and the service of the heart.

And to touch the heart of things around you in the atmosphere, you’re facilitating what needs to happen. In other words, these techniques were listened to and heard as if they were personal, but they’re not. Those techniques lead to, as he said, a greater understanding of others.

Well, what does he mean by others? It means that you then are able to facilitate what needs to unfold in terms of their process of awakening. You don’t use these techniques for your own awakening, because it’s not a matter of sifting and sorting in terms of levels, in terms of yourself, it’s a matter of having a connection that sweeps everything up, that takes everything into account, that looks out for the well being of everything else – to the exclusion even of one’s self.

The true awakening is the awakening in which the things around you are facilitated. And so you were indulging in the idea of realizing that, in step whatever it was, that has to do with dropping the nuance of something around you, that what helps facilitate that are levels of breath, that behind those levels of breath what those levels of breath are denoting is something that has to do with a wholeness that comes from the heart. So that’s what that dream was looking at. That’s interesting. Good dream.
