para-shiftIt can’t be stated too often: humans are the merging point between matter and spirit, between the physical and the divine. It is exactly what we are designed for in our role of service to the universe, and only humans have this capability (leaving open the possibility that beings elsewhere who have freedom of choice, but may look different, are also human beings). It is this role as liaison which makes us so valuable to the purposes and evolution of the universe itself.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I’m having trouble pulling out my dreams right now. So I remember the dream was rather elaborate, but all I remember in this last part of it is going back and forth. And again it feels like I’m going back and forth in an indoor area – I mean it’s not outside.

But what I’m going back and forth about is between one space where I am, and then when I go to the other space it’s like there are these birds that we’re going to use with whatever we’re doing, and sometimes the birds are completely mechanical, and sometimes there like part alive and part mechanical.

And you may take the bird from one side to the other, too, and I seem to be evaluating what kind of bird is best to use, whether it’s a totally alive bird, or a partly mechanical and partly alive bird, or a totally mechanical bird. It feels like it’s either the bird that’s alive, or I think it’s the bird that’s part mechanical and part alive that works better to be using for whatever we’re doing.

But I just didn’t pull out anymore detail than that because it seemed to be like such a focus on which bird you were going to use.

John: Well, what you’re doing is you’re creating an imagery to portray this process in which you are trying to combine the inner and the outer, and you’re likening the endeavor as being an inner process in which there is a bringing together of that which is not alive, or mechanical, or man-made, with that which is alive, or connected to the will of God, or the real light.

And you are confronted with this challenge of where you draw the line, how is it that you see this happening, that is in balance with how you are? And the conclusion you reach is that the resulting energetic effect has to be a composite of that which is manifestation, which is dense in its nature, very contracted, and that which is of the divine essence, which is very expansive and all-encompassing – that you have to take into account both principles simultaneously, that you can’t be one way or the other.

An example of how that currently exists in the outer is, in terms of just expansive and contractive used as an example, because it’s kind of like the divine Will comes and effectuates itself in a noticeable way through an expansive quality for most people, although it can open up from others from a contractive quality. So whichever way that it is, it has to be counterbalanced.

In other words, if you’re in an expansive mode, you have to be able to take on the contractive qualities, which is a type of magnetism to hold it. And if you’re caught in an overindulged way in which you’re very linear and overly magnetized in terms of just looking at your current state of affairs, the little mud puddle you’re in, and can’t see more than that, then you need to break out of that conclusion and realize that there is something more going on. And that something more is a greater side, or part, of your beingness that isn’t limited by the confines of manifestation, and you need to aspire, and you need to reach, and you need to touch that.

Well, this is the state of man, this is the condition of man in the physical, where the dense aspect of manifestation is something slowed down that hides the inner essence, in that the inner essence is there as well. It’s just covered over, it’s layered by illusion. And then there’s the expansive side where there’s the imagery and the vision of that which is way more than you are allowing yourself to take in, and experience, in the contracted mode, and when you do take that in, you come to know that there is something so much more that expands your periphery, your horizons.

And in the dream what you’re doing is you are trying to correlate with both. And the image you have is that of trying to pull together a bit of the mechanical with that which is alive, and you’re telling yourself in the dream that this is what is more real – and in a way that is true.

Apparently it seems to be the play that we under, that we have to have our feet on the ground, which means in the physical and in the illusion, give unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s, the expression you go to in terms of how we have to correspond to that which is part of the reflective of manifestation.

And yet, at the same time, be in some sort of other divine place from which the emanation of all that there is, that comes into life, flows, and we have to handle both. Both vie for the heart. The density holds us in kind of a choked capacity. The expressiveness makes the heart dance. When the heart gets real expansive it tends to get over the toppish and is cruising for a bruising. When the heart is too dense it chokes out the quality of joy, and peace, and free flow.

And so we take and we try to sort these two states out, these two states both vying for the heart. They are coming from two separate energetic flow octaves that are one and the same. One is slowed down density of manifestation, in which those images go much slower but are affected by the speeded up images of the inner which seem to be at a different cadence.

And so, as a human being, we seem to be an octave, a crown of some sort, that lies in between those two conditions. And we are meant to be able to hold a presence in that capacity. And, as your dream is saying, you need to be able to be a little mechanical, and yet at the same time alive. It seems like a conundrum of a statement, but that seems to be the picture of things that we live under.

John: In your last two dreams, both from the same night, you were looking at a connection to the wholeness within you (signified by the journey toward your home) on a vibratory level. What you discovered was a distance, or disconnection, between you and this vibration (the distractions on your way home). You then examined this distance or disconnection at two different levels, appearing first as shame (in the presence of the teacher) and then as grief (at the funeral). (For the previous threads in this sequence see, in order, Thick as a Brick, The Teacher Inside, and The Procession.)

What’s actually occurring in terms of “going home,” is you’re traveling to a greater inner depth. In other words, you’re at an inner threshold, the precursor to your inner light rising up to touch the greater light, and you are prevented from that connection (represented by guilt followed by grief; not much difference there).

Yet in Creation it’s the inner longing that opens up the light rising up to touch the light that makes the difference. You’re considered to be Traveling Toward God when the spirit energy is coming down as if to awaken you, or to align you, or to cause you to let go of things in life. But you don’t start Traveling In God until your light rises up to touch the light.

So you’re seeing that, within you, these two primary qualities still stand in the way – the grief and the guilt, or the guilt for grief. Being a woman, this is the feminine approach. The masculine approach to this same dilemma of disconnection is slightly different, because the masculine acts as if it has to work with the details or the specifics: the seed thought behind it all.

At the deepest depth of the masculine there is a naturalness that just knows this stuff. However, the masculine, over time, has gotten out of touch with that, or, as the teacher would say, has gotten off the ground. As a consequence, the seed thoughts don’t complete the loop. They don’t come down and touch something and then rise up as light rising up… as something rising up.

All of the good intentions, no matter what they are, of the masculine – he’s the bearer of the seed thought of the Divine Will – are for naught until this wholeness is invoked (this light rising up to touch light).

Everything else is a precursor to that. Yes it can help a bit, it can create a different sense of balance when there is communion in working toward this awakening (as opposed to one being left floundering on their own), but nothing of any real consequence takes place that’s effective in life until we have our light rising up to touch light.

Until then we’re simply rearranging things, i.e., trading one distraction for another. But this describes a coming together between a human and Creation. It completes the loop, so there is a completion in Creation rather than just a one-way transmission.

The reason I wanted to revisit this process is because I had a dream with a similar distraction, or disconnection. It starts where yours starts in terms of wholeness and overallness; you start off knowing how to go home to your mother. I start off with a sense of something having been naturally given to me that’s already complete, but what unfolds and takes place in that natural completeness is very revealing of what is preventing the light in me rising to touch the light.

You struggled with the deviation where part of you created a situation from which you needed to be rescued, but, because you we’re already on the path (home), it was enough to allow something to reach you and touch you and help you get back on track.

In my particular case, it’s like that in that there’s an intent in what I’m doing, but it’s all for naught. The intent may appear in some minute way to set the stage for something that’s destined to happen, but it would have happened anyway.

So this discussion is a precursor in itself, because I will get into the description of my dream tomorrow.

John: In yesterday’s dream, we were discussing the idea of listening inside for information on how to proceed (see Due Diligence). Normally we are in reaction mode to our circumstances and our surroundings. Being in a physical body and raised in this culture, I think that reactivity just comes with the territory – we’ve become programmed to solve issues in the way we’ve always solved them.

But Creation seeks more from the human. We are meant to experience this life in a physical body, yet within that look to the Creator and connect with that. That requires an openness to listen to what is trying to guide us – from the inside. It may come from Creation, but it must come through us to be realized; we act as the medium through which Creation potential can be actualized in physical reality.

Instead, most of us are influenced by our senses which then trigger an outplay of established patterns. In this way we make our life experience personal to us – viewed only from our perspective. And our reactions and patterns create a noise within us that prevents us from hearing and connecting with the Divine. But to understand, and agree, that there is a Creator, requires us to see our life, any human life, from the perspective of Creation.

And Creation wants us to work with it – toward the purposes and evolution of its design. Put simply, that means we need to settle back and wait to get the memo that can come, through us, from this other place that carries more of the majesty of life from the Creator.

So in the dream, I’m being pushed by a reaction from Creation (feminine). How that coincides with the Divine Will has yet to be determined by me. A closeness is being sought, but is this closeness truly sincere, or does it fail to take into account an even greater knowingness that has not yet made itself known?

When a person gets too acclimated to a situation, feeling as if they have figured something out, or caught up with something in terms of where they are or how they are, then they become caught within an element of life with its own peculiarities. We are not intended, or meant, to be defined like that.

We’re here at the behest of something deeper inside that’s meant to open up and be receptive to something new, but that insight has gotten lost. Everyone feels sure that they carry a certain balance in their life and that it progresses in a linear way. And that may serve them in their work life or daily life, but it doesn’t mean they’ve gained any acuity with the Creator side of life.

So I can’t help but think, “I wonder what it would be like if, in the way this world’s unfolding, that suddenly a wildcard – a great change – were tossed in, and people started to get unhinged or confused by the changes to their inner life?”

A lot of people might have the dexterity and composure to be just fine, but it will still be a test. There is something that needs to happen at a different level, and who is sitting there, ready, at that level?

It seems like there’s actually a perception that needs to open up in terms of this coming from within, and that what we now do on a daily basis to live our lives has been made the primary importance, when it’s really secondary. That’s a huge change in perspective, but one that is pressing upon us all in these times.
