Posts Tagged ‘different paths to God’

galaxy-0If there’s one absolute truth we can say about a spiritual or religious path, it’s that each individual must walk it on their own. Because all the information handed down through the centuries is meant to offer guideposts to keep us progressing – it can’t do the work for us. So it then becomes a matter of which path resonates best with us? And it’s our inner lives that usually give us that sense of knowing when we find it. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In the next dream, it’s like we’ve been invited to another group that gives seminars. And they have a specific way they do it, and we’ll be presenting the way that we usually do our seminars.

And so the first difference I notice is that they have a male leader, and that usually in their seminars the men really dominate and the women might add something, but they usually aren’t sitting right up front presenting the seminar. And in our group sometimes it’s the women are kind of equal, or may present; so I notice that’s different.

The other thing that’s going on is I know before I get there that someone was involved in their seminars that actually murdered someone, and was being in the midst of prosecution or something, and maybe there was somebody else involved in it that they didn’t even know that yet, maybe that hasn’t been revealed.

And at some point I’m going back and forth as they set up the seminar – we haven’t presented yet – and I’m looking at maybe how they dress versus how we dress, or the fact that they don’t have the women as much, and I run into the man that actually is the head of their organization. And it’s like he’s going to show me a few things about how they do things.

And then I ask him, does anybody there even know about this other prosecution that is going on that may involve someone in the group? And it’s like, no, they haven’t really discussed it, and I find that a bit strange.

John: So what you’re doing is you’re developing a clarity between two different activities, or flows, and, of course, you’re taking primary activities, in other words where each of those activities are primary from the standpoint that they lead to a particular end result that is destined to make a person more real or more open.

And they each have a different way, maybe, and a slightly different note in terms of doing it, but they reach a result that is out of sight, down the road, in terms of when you’re in the process. You don’t see that, but you’re going towards that, and you’re being guided towards that.

Well, whenever you too strictly follow a given Tariqa or pattern or flow, when you too strictly follow it you’re going to create collateral damage in things because no given expression or note is complete in and of itself. That’s why it’s just a note; that’s why it’s just a pattern. It’s a thread, so to speak, and there are other threads.

And so what you’re doing in the dream is this independent thing again, where you’re able to see that note, and this other note, and find the thread that helps work with the two of them. In other words, you’re not biased off to one side where you would be lost in an outcome, or confused by an outcome, that’s kind of an effect over one form of overindulgence or something of an approach.

Both of them go somewhere. The inclination is to try to ignore the one thing, to blank it out of sight and out of mind, but when you take and learn to hold a presence with yourself that includes both threads or notes, then you realize, kind of through the blend or the rub off, that that other is important, and can’t be skipped, and has to be addressed as well.

So this again is part of holding, or catching up with, or finding your own center of attunement, that isn’t getting wish-washed about based upon this approach, or that approach, too exclusively. That you’re recognizing how to maintain an equanimity with both, as you recognize that they both go to the same place.

But can, in that path, because they are notes, can have issues that come up in between, and by bringing in more of the overall equation of things you’re able to recognize how it is… because the issue that has to do with something getting hurt and whatnot, those things happen as the consequence of spiritual illusions that become natural to given notes. And they go away when you’re able to just follow a thread and not have to hold an attunement to a note as if that is the end all be all, because there are all kinds of vibrations.
