2476There is the idea that we are either part of the problem, or part of the solution. To be part of the problem usually means we generate our energies “against” something, which only compounds the problem (by adding still more energy to it). To be part of the solution can mean to generate our energy to being accepting of what is and to try and improve it: first energetically, through our intentions and higher reasons for doing so, and then through our actions inspired by our intentions. And this all begins with an acceptance that we are here to help life, at all levels, refine, which is the very process that helps us refine.

John: Now there’s stages in which this is done, and one of the first stages is what you’re describing, in your dream, where you take and you are in an environment that gives you greater spatiality. In an environment that gives you greater spatiality you develop more chi in your nature, in order to be able to radiate your beingness.

When you’re oppressed, and your environment is restricted, and you have things that have to contend with because there are things that are imposed, your chi is going to be limited and, therefore, your spatiality, as one of the initial ways of being able to have those flip side moments, is going to be choked out.

So you dreamt of one of the ways in which you are able to function in kind of a counterclockwise change of pace. The key, though, is not to understand the steps as much as to understand the overall burden, or challenge maybe, it’s like a burden, it’s like a purgatory to have to figure this out, is to understand that there is a way of hearing and denoting something really, really deeply inside of yourself that is only there when the heart is not afflicted.

And since everything vies for the heart, when is it that the heart is not afflicted? The heart is always going to be afflicted if it draws some sort of attention that causes a reaction. And so how do you function without drawing some sort of attention that causes a reaction? How do you function, because there’s hardly anything that you’re able to do that doesn’t invoke something like that? Just the way you carry yourself, and the way you look, is going to invoke some sort of reaction.

It’s just like driving on an icy road. You don’t fight the slide. You go into the slide, and then come out of it. And you have to go into it by accepting the fact that you’re sliding, and when you turn into the direction of the slide you can easily go off the road. But if you try to fight the slide you could flip the car. So the best way of driving is to accept the inevitable, to go into the slide and then try to slowly pull yourself out.

That’s the most effective way, and that’s just a principle that, you could say, is something that you can denote or learn without having to get spiritual. I mean that’s just an understanding in terms of how the outer works, because in the reflective conditions of things there is always more to be seen. I mean it, too, reflects to the inner, and this principle then is a reflection in the outer.

But what we tend to get caught in is the dense reflections in the outer where we have issues, and take sides, and carry moods, and have mannerisms. And the problem that is very, very difficult to understand, and it only takes a split second to set this problem off and then it will reside for almost ever, is when you get to a particular point of consciousness it’s very, very easy to go over the top in some small capacity and not realize it. And when you have done that, it’s almost impossible to figure out how to take that back because it’s usually some subtle part of yourself that’s misaligned, that has done that, in a zone in which there is a greater freedom but still that blindside snuck in.

And so how do you come back and reconcile the blindside? The key is every person has to do that. They have to do that because this is what sets off things that then get inflected back that vie for the heart. See, the whole thing comes back to working with the principle of the heart, and you work with the principle of the heart in terms of the breath as well.

The Divine Play of things is where you come down into the reflective and realize that there’s something more going on in the reflective. It’s very contracted, and it’s going to have its impositions upon the heart, and then when something more, the greater beingness that’s intertwined in the whole of everything, in which there is an absolute, total acceptance because there’s just the essence then, in that there is a bliss, and in that there are no oppositions. In that there aren’t the multiplicities. It’s like being in another realm. And in order to have that flip that changes the world, you have to be so acceptive that you’re able to function in whatever environment you find yourself in.

We speak often about the difference between acting from inner into outer, as opposed to acting from outer into inner. The first is a connected, and connective, universal process, while the latter is a reactive, disconnected, and personal process. Yet on the journey to that way of being, we must enlist all the aspects of our life into a single, conjoined, in agreement state. And what better way to get everyone together than to hold a reunion? When everyone comes together, we can see who is moving forward and who is clinging to the past. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: The first dream I’m a little more vague on the details, but it feels like I’ve gone back for some type of a class reunion, except we’re all fairly young in the dream, like maybe the age we were when we last saw each other in high school, or a few years older.

And everybody has gone to the school auditorium in an area where there’s a stage. And when I go there everybody else is out in the common area, and I’ve gone up behind the curtain to the side of the stage – because it feels like I have some kind of a job which will be involved in whatever show is being put on.

But there are a couple of other people back there with me because sometimes I’ll kind of peek out from the curtains and see people. You know, they’re going to have tables where they’re eating, and watching, the show out front, but I’m behind the curtain. And there are two other people that have come and are at a table near me behind the curtain. I guess they’re helping with putting on the show that’s going to be going on, too.

And we start discussing, because I had peeked out, because there was a person that I knew that I want to see if he has come to the reunion or not. And somebody else has said that he knew that this person wanted to see us, but that he’s not there. And then somebody comments that, well, they understand he’d been newly married. And so we kind of laugh and say that’s probably why he hasn’t come, you know. And that was that dream.

John: Well, the theme of the dreaming was the recognition, or a recognition, of how what takes place in the outer is: it’s personal if it’s of a reflection only, but it has a soul quality nature, or it has a quality nature if you don’t want to call it that, that comes from the inner, that awakens then in a reflective mode – perhaps secondarily, or subsequently, in the outer.

What happens is when something opens, from inner into outer, that’s a flow that lifts the heart up. When something awakens from the outer to the inner, that contracts the heart. That’s a contractive vibe on the heart.

The reason why it’s contractive is you’re identifying, when it’s like an outer to an inner, you’re identifying with the physical senses and, therefore, you’re making something separate and personal.

And when it is opening up from inner into outer, it is an expansive thing, it is a revealing thing.

So what you did is, instead of the detail, you just looked at it as a kind of placement where you’re in a setting in which something new is to emerge, and that you’re part of this something new that’s to take place, before all there is that’s out there seeded. And that you’re gathered with those who are part of the putting on of this something new.

Now to some degree you still have some identification with some aspect that you think is still holding you back, or that you have an interest in, or are paying attention to, that is in the outer. And so you look out to see where that is at, and you find out that that has advanced as well, or has moved into no longer a reflective state where it is observing. And when you’re observing, you’re only able to denote reflections because you’re just observing with your senses – that this part of yourself has taken and made a transition. It’s gotten completed, in some fashion, and that’s why it’s no longer in the reflective mode, or setting. Isn’t that interesting?

aur20Energy appears in many forms in dreams, but money is one form, and in this case it’s a lottery ticket. And we can see from the description that that is the important thing to follow or pay attention to. But the other people, young and old, are not able to focus on the energy and its importance, so there is a sense of struggle or frustration. But the energy itself is like a flow that every one should get in sync with. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well, I just remember some vignettes almost, or glimpses, of last night’s dreams. The strongest one I remember is that it feels like there’s a man, he almost feels like I might be related, I’m making up some kind of almost like a lottery ticket to sell him.

I’m almost hoping about which one he chooses, but then he chooses this one ticket that I think I put at least $20 in. But then he goes off, but he doesn’t open it because I remember coming across him later and I wondered if he’s opened it yet to see what he’s won, but he still hasn’t.

And then there’s some younger people in the family I’m trying to sell lottery tickets to in a sense, they’re like great nephews or something. They’re at a movie theater and they’re too distracted by some of the girls, and how they’re dressed, and I’m trying to get them to focus more on what they should be selecting.

And you come by at some point and you tell me that I’m going to be green, you know, and then it seems like I go back. I’m kind of concerned about one of the relatives and whether they’re actually going to open up their ticket at some point. And it feels like a lot of little scenes like that. I couldn’t really kind of glimpse a flow in the dream.

John: The sense is that you’re catching up with a mannerism upon which you’re able to unfold, or conduct, yourself in terms of bringing through, and holding onto, an importance in life.

First, the dream has three distinct parts. It has the part to which you’re trying to expand. Then it has the part to which you’re trying to bring something back, or through, that has a specific effect to it, meaning it’s something that’s visible in a dense, defined way. And you could consider it dense and defined, even, because it’s an expression, in other words, it’s a lottery ticket now that has something added to it, instead of it just being in general.

And then the third aspect of the dream, that all gets put together with this, is that the appearance is all in keeping with something that is natural as a presence in life. Those are the three parts, and the three parts get put together.

Usually you cannot lose something in life until you’ve made a journey, and that is the green. And the journey you have to make is the journey into the expanse of things. To it’s like a journey in Russian roulette, all the variables are out there. What are you going to do with them? Yeah, you’re tossed around a little this way, and you’re tossed around a little that way, and somehow or another you’ve got to take in everything that is affecting you, to reach a point where you have acquired a kind of general overallness of your nature.

But before you can get to the general overallness of your nature, as you take and you look at all of that it’s like one great big lottery, and it’s undefined. But then, at some particular point, that becomes defined, or starts to seal, and that there is this, that, or the other that’s involved with the expression, or mannerisms, that come in your direction, that you’re able to catch up with, that you’re able to bring down, and conduct, and handle.

In other words, those expressions, those mannerisms, they’re like lottery tickets, too, except you can work with how that definition and that mannerism is. And the reason why you can work with it is because you’re able to stay natural. You’re able to stay in the green. You’re not lost yourself in the whole mirage and malaise of things.

Now there’s a fourth step that you didn’t bring up, and the fourth step is that once you’re able to hold a particular presence, or quality, as you’re working in life, you then take that green or that light, you can take the things that have the $20 and that stuff that is a mannerism, that’s in the environment around you, the peculiarities and uniquenesses of things, you can then take and you can flow in a packaged way, in which the $20 and all of that is used, and in which the green of your presence is there. And then subordinate, or coordinate, or orchestrate yourself in keeping with what you have awoken around you. You can orchestrate and coordinate your life in relationship to their mannerism.

Now ordinarily you cannot do this if you’re just in the first step, the first step which is the step in which you’re becoming expansive in trying to take in the grasp from the top down of everything. But once you have brought it through, and have established a presence, and can take whatever is brought down and go back with the in-breath with it freely, into the whole, and be okay with that and have a sight somehow of the bliss of that, then you can take that and you can work with things in life.

This is an interesting thing. I don’t know what words to put on what that does, other than to say that it’s interesting why teachers have students, and a teacher has to hand off as much as he can to the student, and the student then can take and be the arms and the legs of things, in a more advanced way – in terms of consciousness.
