Posts Tagged ‘dreams and human purpose’

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.

We’ve all heard about houses having panic rooms, or of people running to the basement during a tornado, but we are mobile creatures and what befalls us doesn’t always happen in our homes. So, where is our safe space then? The only possible answer is inside. And what makes that space safe? We make our inner space safe by determining, consciously, who we are, by choosing the fundamental principles that we will uphold in the face of any challenge, by knowing what is truly important to us. We may be born with these inklings, we may be taught some of them, but until we, ourselves, consciously choose them, we will not even be safe to ourselves.

John: Last night dreaming and meditating was all about a connection, like a stillness connection, that was reaching for my attention. In other words, instead of me going into a stillness, the stillness was coming out.

If what is going on in the outer doesn’t have any way of feeding something, or being in a particular way that is meaningful, I can easily drift to this stillness space. In other words, because the stillness has come out, I can easily to go back to it. 

Apparently, I have established a recognition to this part of myself that is not as apparent. It’s not as affected. It’s not as affected in terms of what is going on in the outer. It’s not able to touch me like it normally does because this stillness is able to engulf the outer whims of things. 

Consequently, I have developed a proclivity to drown projected images that waft in between the all-engulfing stillness and the outer magnetism. I can drown them back and forth. I can go back and forth, I can drown them now. Which means I just kind of slip into a deeper stillness, or a letting-go into this state has become more natural for me than it is for the average person who is affected and haunted by outer projections that terrorize an inner aloneness that extends from an all-pervasive wholeness. 

So, in other words, it’s like what flickers, the Bardo stuff that flickers, it’s not like that flickering world is where one sits then and tries to look at that, and tries to go back through that, and finds the stillness behind it. It’s not like that’s in-between anymore. It’s like coming out of the stillness, going into that, and then from that into the waking world, now.

In other words, the process has become reversed. It’s not finding a remembrance, it’s coming from a remembrance into the flickering of things. The whole process is getting reversed, it’s like it’s tipped. It’s gone over the threshold, or something. 

And so, as a consequence, I can actually say things about things. But nobody really understands it because, when I say things about things – I can see this happening now – I can say things about things, but when I say things about things, deep down, where I’m at, has a slant to the other side. As opposed to saying things now that has a slant towards that side. Now it’s from the other side. That’s different.
