ty-symbolYes, we think our brain can solve any problem, and that it is the only tool that will get us where we want to go. The brain is a fantastic tool, but it is not the part of us that connects. So when we try and connect to the universe, or make a spiritual journey, using our brain to “understand” more and more what life is really about, we are heading down a dead end street. It is our higher faculties that connect to the universe, and we can deepen those connections by expanding, through the heart, into the everything. Said another way, we need to feel our way to connection, not think our way there. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I wish I remembered more details, but it felt like what I was doing in my dreaming last night is I was going back and forth looking at what your relatives were doing, like I would be on the coast seeing what the relatives kids were doing, and then I’d be back in Montana seeing what they were doing on the ranch, and trying to figure out what was going on with the people they were working with. I don’t remember the details that much because it was more like I was just observing them, trying to figure it out.

John: What did the heart feel like while you were doing that?  Was it exhausting?

Jeane: It was a little exhausting because it felt like I was trying to work too hard at figuring something out. So it was tiring.

John: Yeah, it is exhausting to do that. And when you do that, you tend to be contractive instead of expansive. And the quality of intertwining into a wholeness is an expansive quality, and the contractive quality is reflective of concern, which has to do with a type of pain, generally speaking.

Because just like the soul is compelled by the magnetism of the body to have to be oriented in that regard and, as a consequence, is taken outside of its overallness in the whole, when you contract it’s in keeping with the same kind of effect. And there is a limit then, in terms of what you’re able to perceive. And, of course, the perception comes from a quality of being able to reside, or attain, or maintain the greater oneness or, in other words, the overallness that is more like the at-one-ment of the whole.

And that is in keeping with what is considered the One Mind, and that when you’re contracted from that you take in and confront the sensation of limitation, or sense of limitation, and that causes a quality of pain to exist. It can be anguish, it can be exhausting, it can be experienced in a whole number of different ways, and the key is to determine how one is to experience that.

And the way one has to experience that is from a reference of the expansiveness. But if you have a reference from the contractiveness, as opposed to a reference from the expansiveness, then you tend to develop the mistaken perception that what you were doing was actually creating in some fashion – and it never creates that way, it only creates in the expansiveness. 

In the contractiveness it veils, and works in a way that is contending with a kind of magnetic pressure that is in need of letting go, so that the wholeness can be realized. So it’s an aspect, something like this is an aspect, to understanding what the mind is not – because it is not something that understands in that capacity. The mind understands in the capacity of experiencing a breath that has an intertwinement with the whole, and the essence then is of a oneness. 

Now the dilemma that exists is reaching a point to where you actually experience this sort of thing as a naturalness of your own being. The mental concepts that you have are going to get in the way and cause you to suffer. The projections that you have are going to cause you to misconstrue. That sort of thing comes from the sense of how one reverbs between the contractive and the expansive state, and notices the difference in terms of the heart, because the heart in the expansive state has a natural knowingness that is there.

And the heart in the contractive state learns, from the reflective pain, that the other is what is real. So the watching that occurs is really an observation of the mind, in terms of what the mind isn’t. That is a mind that the heretic would call the ego because it still functions in that way, as opposed to the other which leads to the enlightenment.

energesThe way we use language can be very revealing. For example, we might say something like: we had an effect on someone, or something. And that describes two separate elements having some kind of interaction. A spiritual journey is designed to lessen that separation, so that we are entwined with the energies around us – able to read them and respond to them – and those energies respond to what we generate as well. Of course, nothing is really completely separate, but our path can help us to really feel and understand that in a conscious way.

Jeane: All I remember of the very first dream was I was coughing last night, and whenever I was particularly having a time when I was coughing hard, it actually had to do with something going on in the dream.

It was like, you know, energetically what it looked like is there was a horizontal ladder with rungs in it, and when I was coughing it was like going up and down on that ladder. And it was creating some kind of an energy exchange that could occur when that was going on.

And it felt like, other than that, that there was a battle going on – but that’s all I remembered of the first dream.

John: The theme of the dreaming last night had to do with being able to recognize the energy lines. Now, what you were doing is you were just seeing that, when you were coughing, that this had an effect upon, that this did something to, the energy lines, which means a couple of things.

Number one, the coughing generates an energy line. And number two, that there are set energy lines already in the design of things. And so the coughing initially is taken into account by the energy lines, which means that the energy lines are kind of like a condition, or a Rock of Ages, in terms of how things are in an overall way. And that the coughing follows the energy line, but is kind of subordinated to it.

That’s how it is initially. Eventually you can get to where you can create a disruption to the energy line, such that the coughing causes something to get altered in some sense. And if that were to happen, then what you would have is you’d have the set energy line having to accommodate the coughing energy line such that it would have to subtract that coughing from something that is set, fairly set.

You’re not going to change much in terms of things because the Rock of Ages of things is so humongous that the little bitty effect of your coughing upon all of that is going to be inconsequential. But if you had the eye to see, you would be able to see how you, intertwined with the energy lines of all there is, can subtract yourself out from the Rock of Ages.

And then you can get to a third step, in which the coughing can actually alter the design of the Rock of Age energy line. So I had to dream all three, and what you’re dreaming, though, is this initial little dream just denotes how there is a noticeability to how it is that you function, how that is accommodated, how that is in place in some way, in relationship to a setness of a design which is the energy line.

imag0921esIt’s impossible to know the truth from thousands of years ago, but it certainly seems that in these times a spiritual journey is a very personal matter, like a personal religion. We all have our unique gifts that we must develop and learn to use, and we all have our personal histories (early childhood, education, tragedies, insecurities, etc.) that we need to overcome. And we also have to resist the entrapments of the culture that keeps telling us that we need to be rich and beautiful. Through that labyrinth we make our way back to our true purpose and path, in our own way, yet united with all others who journey toward an alignment to the purposes of the universe itself.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: I’m in an empty house which has a four-legged chair in the center of a room. In other words, nothing else exists, just this chair. And, other than the chair, there is a mouse that was running around there, that I can’t seem to catch.

And so the owner of this place walks through the door, and there seems to be a few others with him, and I point out to him the mouse. And he says, “Kill it.”

So when the attention is now turned by others to go after the mouse, there’s suddenly 8, 9, or 10 mice running around out there. But, different than before, we’re able to catch up with them and kill them, because before I hadn’t been able to get rid of just this one mouse, but now we have no trouble wiping them out.

And what this does is it enables a shift to occur, and I’m able to leave this place. I have some trouble finding my keys but, you know, I have them on me, I just can’t sort out which key is the key I need.

And then from there, you know, it’s like I’m finding the key to a vehicle, but what ends up happening is I end up walking along a beach. And it’s a rocky beach, up and down one rock after another, and there comes a point, before I realize what’s happened, I’ve walked into briny water up to my waist. And it’s like there’s no way to navigate around this swampy area but, fortunately, I’m able to climb up instead of going across, and I end up getting on an overhead bridge.

And that’s where I come across the others that have gathered, in other words, the one’s that come into the room and killed all the mice and whatnot. That’s where they have gotten to. In other words, from there we get ushered to the program.

And the meaning is, the mice are like a neurosis obstacle that, once overcome, it clears something up so that one’s able to proceed. But from here I seem to be able to move about, but there is a struggle to figure out my way along, and to reach a place where there is a bridge to the other side.

So, you know, the way I guess you would conclude it is that the shift has occurred, and going forward is positive and possible, and when I factor in the effect of the other dreams, what is suggested is, although I do not seem to be able to travel along the same path as others on the journey, I ultimately get to where there is a bridge between the inner and the outer.

The dream is indicating that, although I am meant to be on the path, I had to go do things or go about this to get to this place, which held me up awhile, kind of on my own. In other words, I didn’t work necessarily with the group, but with the help of others on the path, you know at the beginning and whatnot where I was stuck, and the teacher who was like the owner of the house, I’m able to find the means to reach the bridge between the inner and the outer.

Jeane: That’s a good dream.

John: Interesting, huh?
