waterlightningWe have learned not to put electrical things in bath tubs, or to swim during a lightning storm. And that’s because energy travels instantly through water, and we’re mostly water ourselves. So when we feel things and sense things, it travels through us in the same way. And we also have the mind and the awareness to understand the energies passing through us – or even being produced by us. That is what a development journey can put us in touch with – which puts us in touch with all the world. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In the last dream I’m a new employee, kind of on probation, that’s gone to work in this office. And the office is actually a simple, wooden room. So at one end the boss has a table near some windows, and maybe a small desk, or chairs at least where he sits, and file cabinets. And then in other areas of the room there’s some other desks, and maybe some tables where the other employees are, and there might be a little storage area, too.

And I’m also aware that the boss is a man who has a girlfriend, that I’m not sure the rest of the people there approve of yet. But I’m kind of on probation, and so when I go in there I’m doing what I can do, and it feels like the day goes well.

And then I find out the boss has become engaged, and the next morning everybody’s going to meet at a coffee shop. We’re kind of looking out the window. He’s trying to show me where it is because I can’t quite exactly see it, and they’re all going to meet for coffee and celebrate a little at 10:00 before they come to work.

What I start doing, then, is I become interested in cleaning the office, like I notice there’s dust and smudges on the table and I start cleaning that. And the guys have disappeared a little bit more and the boss’ fiance has come into the room, and she approves of what I’m doing, and she starts helping, and pretty soon we’re starting to just clean down the whole room – like I’m washing down the tables, and the walls, and it’s like I just want to get the whole room really clean.

John: So what is happening there is, if you take the words focus and attention and the focus and attention is directed towards anything, whatever it’s directed towards sucks you in, sucks you in to a kind of rapport, or doingness. And if you can let yourself go completely to the focus and attention as a doingness, that is outside of yourself but inside of yourself simultaneously, you can get away with it – or so it seems. Anyway that’s the delusional aspect, how the delusional aspect starts.

So, what you’re saying basically, putting it into an energetic note, you know, just taking every component of the dream, there’s a part of the dream that’s calling a state of attention, and in that state of attention there are other parts of the dream, in terms of what is taking place, because there’s the girlfriend, and then there’s this, and then there’s the going out and doing that, that grab your attention. And when your attention is grabbed, you’re inclined to think that there is something that is going on that needs something from you.

So then when you attempt to relate to what you feel is compelled, that is when you are inclined, through your senses, to come up with an orientation. And whatever that orientation is, it is always based upon a projection, because if you were truly somewhere else, meaning at the depths of an essence, none of that other would grab your focus and attention into thinking that you have to process your way along – because there is no process.

All of this sort of thing appears to be like this, and one appears to be going somewhere, in other words, the focus and attention and a cleaning and whatnot all is about working towards going somewhere, and it is going to always be experienced, in a sensation way, as if one is going somewhere, aspiring somewhere, when the recognition is still one of separation.

But when you see yourself, when you are a me that is the essence of everything, and that it is only you, and that there is no this, that, or the other, then you sit in a way in which everything around you seems to be an extension of yourself, that there isn’t anything to contend with, that there isn’t anything to denote in some sort of differentiated capacity, that there isn’t something to be resolved or to be fixed.

But we don’t seem to see that, we don’t seem to be able to denote that. We may hear it, and can hear it to be like that, but we don’t, with our sense orientation, don’t really quite get it, and as a consequence you’re going to have the images and the drama of things. And that gets played out, it goes in circles, and has its limitations and everything that’s perceivable like that is limited, and it doesn’t really matter what you really do when you’re perceiving like this. You never really can polish it because you’re polishing something that is bifurcated, and you never really can absorb it because you see it as distinct and separate – so how can you absorb something that’s not really the essence of yourself?

Yet on a very, very deep level, when we were sitting out there amidst the fountain and amidst of everything going this way and that way all around us, and nothing was going out of its way to break us out of sitting in the epicenter of an essence, in other words, we didn’t deviate, we held that wholeness, that intertwining, we were experiencing and everything around us was within the movie script of an intertwined beingness that emanates from us. In other words, all of those little parts that went around, everything that jumped around.

When you’re sitting like that, you’re effectuating a vibration in which, if you were to look at these other parts that are moving around, which are all you, you would find out that there was no room for them to be combative, to be frictional, to be agitated. All of that is soothed by this sort of essence. This is what heals, this is what changes the world even.

But had we been sitting there, and had we been sitting there in some sort of awkward, angry, perturbed way and went off into a trance, and still carried that kind of bizarreness in our nature, then around us would have been the bizarreness of ourself flickering about. But, instead, it was another kind of inflection of light – all being us. All being us.

It’s hard to see that, right? So in your dreaming you’re still raising that question. I mean this is a little bit hard to take in as a fell swoop, so you’re still raising the question, and you’re seeing what it’s like for there to be a wall, and you’re seeing what it’s like for there to be other activities to which you have to determine how it is that you plug in, in other words, what you’re willing to do in a buying-in, delusional way.

As you’re going inside all of this other stuff floating around is just absorbed, and through the essence of a oneness that is you, that is everything. And that’s how the world gets healed, that’s how it gets changed. But when it is all spiraling about, everything with its notionality, what predominates is mass confusion. And the wholeness, then, as a principle that takes everything into account, functions as an aliveness consciousness of the world soul, but it’s not something that we’re aware of because we’re not aware of ourselves being that world soul.
