We hear the phrases: we are connected to everything, and, the universe is a oneness. But what do these statements really mean? Are we responsible for the tree dying in the forest? Well, as human beings, we can’t take on responsibility for greater processes than we can handle, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have an awareness and a connection to the greater processes as they unfold in other forms of life.

John: And so, in my first dream, Dean is visiting. And, as we’re talking, he asks if I want my opinion on some subject, and we’re talking about something else. And so I have to kind of stop, adjust myself because I realize that one has just passed through something in which there is a quality of indulging, in which he asked this question about that. 

And so I go along, and he says: you do not want to do anything that limits your ability to get out of here. 

And so, you might say, that’s the counter thing. In other words, all this is doing is noting, just like what you were doing as you were determining the extent to which you actually are the creator, and not just something that has access to the flow. 

In my dream I’m trying to determine what is involved in terms of being able to open up more inside and find the sensitivity and this access to subtler energies – and what do I do with that? And so on one hand, of course, there’s the belief that you can take and utilize that to go home, or to be less affected and impacted by the density of things around you. That would be that answer. But who knows what limits one’s ability? Because there also is the understanding that we are everything, including the density of things around us, and we have to delve into that in order to free ourselves up. 

And so there also is this energetic that’s going on inside of me that’s pointing out the counter to that. The common notion is where people take and think they have to do this or that, and then realize when they don’t need to be doing this or that, do they step away from it, do they transcend that? Or, do you get to a point where you go up and you go down and, as you develop subtler energy, you’ve taken it down deeper into the density, and the mannerisms and the qualities of the physical?

And you have to keep doing it graciously, because it’s very easy to develop a beatitude when something goes askew or amiss, and you can be kind of righteous in your subtle energy to that which is dense. And that’s not a very proper dialogue. And what it does is it creates barriers of separation. 

And so if you develop a certain consciousness that enables you to have a certain quality that steps out, so to speak, in an inner capacity way, what you’re doing is actually acting as if things that are denser are a problem, rather than them being another aspect of yourself that your subtler energy can come into. But you are making choices, as opposed to allowing yourself to be intertwined. 

So anyway, this is like the dialogue that’s going back and forth in which there is that little statement, which comports with a certain pattern where I would go into a void or an emptiness and actually get to a point where I could know things and whatnot, but not necessarily be grounded, not necessarily be within the flow or the context of the breath. 

And then when one starts looking at the context of the breath, to what degree? And, of course, then you have to understand that if you’re going to be in the context of the breath, how can you reject any portion of the breath in terms of being able to play in manifestation, which includes the lower portion of the breath, which is the shamanistic zone, the zone that is able to have an effect in terms of being able to work with the matter in the outer?

Throughout the centuries and around the globe people have always formed belief systems of something greater than themselves, which usually pointed to a higher purpose and connection between all things. And even though the details may differ between these systems, if we are striving to be in service to what created us, and to fulfill the reasons why we were created, then we are all on the same path. In a certain sense, there is only one process going on in this universe and we either are in support of it, or we are in opposition to it.

John: It’s interesting that we’re theming in this way, now, because my meditation dream does something similar, in which I see myself with a bunch of different people, and we are all following a kind of different path. Each path, however, is trying to point to a greater end, or quality of realization. 

And so, in this meditation dream, I am the Christian, another person is a Buddhist, then there’s a Hindu, a Muslim, a Sikh, a Native American Indian, etc. And we have come together with a common purpose in which each of us must uphold our inner truth – in spite of outer appearances that are inclined to keep us checked out. 

So to prove we are who we say we are, as a consciousness that is real, it’s as if we are put to a common test: we are required to inflect into manifestation our truth. So, in this dream, out of a darkness that presides, we must each figure out how to go from a state of personal oppression to a state where we are able to be free. And, what I mean by being free is we have to each produce a flicker of light that rises from the darkness of our nature. 

I do not know how anyone is able to do any of this. In other words, I do not know how anyone is able to do any of this because we all seem so different and are coming from different paths. Yet this is what we are about. In other words, you can’t make sense out of this from a mental point of being, it’s just a greater spaciality, and capacity, that lies dormant within each of us. 

And so what is going on is, in the dream, we have gathered as an eclectic oneness, and as representatives to all of the colors of the universe. And, likewise, we are all of the truth of mankind. We have come together with a conscious realization, within, that we each can go beyond the shackles of the outer that binds, and awaken a beingness capable of accessing a light of consciousness. 

Of course, it’s an unseen light because, when we come together, our outer aspects have us looking one way, but the way we really relate, or have a sense of feeling inside, is something entirely different. 

And so, as a meaning, that which is real is not caught up by reflective identifications, as if that is the end all, be all. From the darkness, we each know how to access, when we listen to the hidden inner light, we seem to have a way of accessing it and bringing this light into the outer. 

To do so is to reach within our being and denote the greater spaciousness of ourselves that is real. To do so is to be a truth to the oneness of life. Those who have the focus and attention to be a force and flow to an interconnected oneness, know each other as a oneness – and know everything as a oneness.

Everything is alive, in its way, which means we can connect to it in some way. A rock may seem old and inert, but if we hold it on our palm we can feel its nature. If we take the rock home and intentionally energize it every day, it will come to hold that energy, and represent the energy of our devotion. This is the way objects on shrines, and statues, and certain works of art are meant to be used and related to, just like we can feel the energy of Egypt in the museum collection – if we put our awareness on it. We can use this knowledge to charge the things that matter to us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I just remember one dream. Well, it seems like you and I lived as part of a community. And you were away, but you were coming back shortly. 

I was in bed, but I was kind of sleeping on your side of the bed because I was guarding this round disc. And it was kind of like a two-foot round disc, it was kind of rubbery and rad looking. This disc could be used for other things, sometimes you might make love on it, sometimes you might blow it up and lend it out, it could travel. But I didn’t know what the purpose of the disc was, so I was guarding it until you got back and then I would know. Meanwhile, I had to keep it there

John: That’s a symbolism that actually is talking about something more than the symbolism. In other words, it’s just like Allyn talking about his days in Tibet, in a high monastery, in which when he left, he left behind, symbolically, a staff and a this or a that, that was to be taken on in a kind of safekeeping as a vibratory transitioning. 

Because there is no such thing as time and space, and yet there is a capacity in terms of how something is or exists. And sometimes that capacity gets lost in a type of density that causes time to appear to have collapsed. And so, in this particular case, what you’re dreaming about in terms of retaining, or holding onto, is a connectedness to a quality of a capacity that is an inner depth within, that has an aliveness and a quickened state – that a part of you knows you have a connection with. 

And so, until one breaks the time and space barrier it can come across as an imagery of the mind, in relationship to something that is representative of holding a space. It’s somewhat like the cloak of Christ, for example, the robe, as it’s called, there’s a whole story that goes along with that, in which that robe, as it got passed on, carried a certain vibration, that, so to speak, was reflective of a spaciality, a dimension, that had been quickened, in which the robe represented an aliveness that was still in a physical sense, but had taken on an atmospheric quality that enlivened the molecular, so to speak. 

And you find this also in certain areas of the country, and in the presence of certain people. And if you peel that back, though, it’s a quickening of an aliveness that isn’t restricted to something that has shrunken itself to a point where the heart is choked. In other words, the opening of the heart is something that goes on, and on, and on in terms of the degree to which one can be quickened to the aliveness within the molecular, of the surrounding, of the greater atmosphere that exists. 

And so, in your dream, because you are sensing a capacity of something more awakening, that is something that you catch up with, or come to embody and embrace, you are denoting that symbolically by that kind of imagery.
