When we create something, we can say that it is a reflection of what is inside of us. It’s not exactly what is inside of us because it’s not the whole of us. So it reflects just a certain aspect of that whole. A human life is just such a reflection of the whole, but we, having consciousness, can reconnect back to that wholeness while still being only a reflective part. That is the beauty of the human journey and possibility. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in the meditation dream, I’m confronted with an image of how it is energetically forming in manifestation. By that I mean, I can denote, or recognize, or see that I am like an energetic that sensates, or floats, or hangs with the human body so that there are the outer experiences. And that what I’m really doing is setting up a reflection from a subrogated, inner essence way – that is so much more. 

What I am noticing, that is actually disturbing about all of this, is that the energetic that I see about myself, that it is tied to a heart breath, and it is this heart breath that is the perspective that comes down, or comes out, or hangs out from the all-pervasive stillness that is somewhere else. 

And so, to be speaking about it bluntly, this is kind of the state that exists for a human being’s experientiality, in terms of when the out-breath is astir. In other words, you notice that there’s a substance, then, that is around and about and part of like a journey that vies for the heart, from some sort of projective, or objective even, or whatever you want to call that, that has a density to it, and it can have a lightness to it, it can have all of that because it’s the in-breath and then the out-breath. 

And it’s where and how we are, we are projective, and all levels of beingness, that are in manifestation, exist in the breath, that has come out of a stillness into a flow. 

So, we learn to talk about this play referencing and looking at what’s called Kundalini energy, which is how this bifurcation is described. And you can get into the archetypes and everything else about the Kundalini energy, it’s all an aspect of looking at the compositions of the breath, or the Kundalini energy as denotable on the breath.

And such experiences correspond inflectively, in a back and forth way, because the breath is both out-breath and in-breath. For example, when an ever expansiveness exists from the in-breath, this is like a flip from the contractive outbreath, it’s like flipping it. In other words, it comes down as a contractive out-breath, and then flips to an expansiveness of the in-breath; we go back and forth like this. The correlation in the outer from the in-breath expansiveness is the out-breath’s contraction back into a density. 

This is what happens when you’re out of the stillness. It’s kind of like counter-reflective in-breath. In other words, you can look at the in-breath as counter-reflective to the out-breath, or the out-breath counter-reflective to the in-breath because there just is this yo-yoing back and forth. 

So the subject, then, is the subject of the breath in terms of what it is like to be outside of stillness. So, then, what is that that’s outside of stillness? And you come to denote that, instead of talking about it as Kundalini energy, use another word now you talk about it as spirit energy that’s upon the breath.

So there’s a fine line, I mean, as a way of saying spirit energy and Kundalini energy. And the in and out of the breath are pretty much just ways of saying the same thing. It’s just that you might get a little slightly different sense descriptively, when you try to use these other words as well. 

So when you go through the states of breath, you’re yo-yoing to and fro, reflectively, you’re vying for the heart as a stillness mirror because the heart has a stillness somewhere within it to mirror – in order to break the spell of the yo-yoing – so that you can settle for the stillness.

What I’m talking about is a dynamic that exists in the stillness has given way to breath. The reflective experiences upon the breath, that we denote as a Kundalini energy, again, back to another way of pointing to the same thing, is just the spirit energy going back and forth. And upon the inner in-breath there is an expansiveness, repeating again, and upon the out-breath a contractiveness. 

So, as an in breath, there is a letting go that’s like an accentuation. And then there’s the coming together magnetically, and in Kundalini energy is considered the birthing force, that’s the out-breath’s predominant quality. 

So when the journey upon the breath is transcended, if you could use the word transcended, or when you just go into the emptiness, or the nothing-but-nothingness, therein lies the stillness, which is outside of the spirit energy. Or, to say this another way, is outside of manifestation which involves spirit energy breath. 

So, the significance is, every effect upon an individual with regard to action/reaction is breath work. To extend to all levels, from stillness to presence, is an interesting effect. Or, to put this in another way, a human being has access to all the planes, from the states of manifestation, i.e., in sound, to the states of light, often called the other side, and also beyond the light to stillness.

masks3Everyday we see fame, or celebrity, or people with power and we may feel respect, awe, or any number of responses to them. Yet how often do we find, in the end, that they are not the people we thought they were? This happens because the outer portrayal doesn’t match the inner assembly – and these types of contradictions are difficult to keep hidden. A better way is to become a person we want to be on the inside – with the associated principles and integrity – and that will ultimately show up in the outplay of our life. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: This next one is very short, but full of information.

In this next dream, it’s like I’m in some sort of work area, like on a job or something. I feel really kind of out of it. I can’t seem to plug in or feel natural there, and this whole thing gets intensified when I realize that no one even wants to work with me.

And I can hardly blame them. I do not accept guidance very well. In other words, when told what to be doing, I seem to get all twisted, or not seem to know how to hear it right, or to know how to make it happen. So it’s like, “Gosh, how can anyone work with something like that? It’s amazing that I can even hold the job.”

And as a result, I just don’t stay on course with whatever it is that I am told that I need to do and, of course, this causes me to develop a self-image problem, an insecurity. And to try to compensate through that, I have to focus harder to try to stay alive.

To be like that means that my perception of myself is not operating in a secure and balanced way. I see this when I go to a fishing hole and find another person laying claim to the place. He doesn’t have the means to catch the fish, and I am the one who is there to make the most of the result. Very strange, in other words, right?

So how is this to be understood? Well, the meaning is, the pattern is occurring because I am feeling the need to thrust myself into some way or another in life. I am only becoming more unconscious when I do this. The way that I’m doing it causes me to become unconscious, because I’m taking it in as a particular way that’s a little bit pushing off me or something, and orients this to an attention upon one’s self.

To extricate myself from the image, I need to feed the part of myself that requires the attention. I need to feed it in a slightly different way. I need to feed it in a way that where one appears to give it what it wants, but knows at the same time that it really doesn’t want it. And if one can do that sort of thing, then you can cause a letting go to take place.

In other words, I must not see myself as the beneficiary of this or that, or the ego will destroy one. The self-gratification is put to an end. That is what one needs to do in order to graciously awaken and deflect the effect of this holding-on mannerism. To fail to do this, as you awaken, is to develop a sense of power energy that’s like a monster, instead of something that has a humility, and a kindness, and softness; you lack the heartfelt humility.

Now, the meaning of both dreams is the same. The two dreams are correlated because beneath all of this is a part of myself that is in the limelight. In other words, that’s what I’m thrown at is a peculiarity to have to contend with in order to let go, prove that one can let go, prove that one can not have to take on any airs.

Because one cannot be true to one’s self if you get caught, in that regard, to what is going on and then having to associate to yourself something in that manner or way, as a way of carrying or seeing yourself. The key to becoming a more conscious person is to know how to let go of appearances and realize that I am not the real doer. If I do not realize this, then I step in the way of the heart and become like a beast.

This is an outer quality, so what is this looking like on an inner level? On an inner level, my teacher is causing more and more of a real human being, in terms of myself, to awaken and come through. I cannot take the credit for what is evolving, when it is his focus upon me that is the difference.

In this dream, I make the acquaintance of a person who is moving very fast and only has time to pause for a second. Kind of like how I can get too. This person is working as an aide for a U.S. senator.

I seem to be questioning why he would do such a thing, and he replies, “For the recognition. Isn’t that the reason, and the only reason, why you do anything?” And the way he says that, it has the ring of being a foregone conclusion behind everything that is done.

Then, of course, again this kind of is a sharp way of cutting to the theme of it all, of showing how hard it is to be an empty vessel and let consciousness flow through from a deeper inner depth, without getting in the way and, thereby, causing a stigma.

32gesWhat gives rise to us, the masculine and feminine rays of creation, is ancient. It is one of the engines that has powered the interaction of thing to thing. As separate beings, we each have different roles to play, yet we also have both of these ancient aspects within us. This means we also know them, and what they are meant to be used for. We may have lost this understanding, but it is still within us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: Perhaps the better way to recognize how this all works naturally is that, to the feminine quality of life, it is actually the obligation of the seed thought of the masculine to give to the feminine. When the feminine insists upon being included, or become made a part of that, it actually is a type of feminine control that tends to cause it to be excluded. Because the true masculine unfoldment process knows that this is its orders to be like this, if you wanted to call it orders, it’s a naturalness for it to need to want to be like this.

The feminine should not go around acting like it’s in a lesser modality of needing to be included because that can lead to it having to do this, that, or the other in order to keep a state of attention.

Well, you see this happening all the time, this quality characteristic happening all the time, as a type of demeaning of the feminine to itself – in the outer. The idea that she should have done something more, or something like that, and doesn’t realize that the principle to which she effuses naturally gives something into life. And it doesn’t mean that life is a candy machine that automatically responds – because the overallness is huge. And the letting-go place that you’re coming from requires a particular quality of purity for it to unfold.

It’s a type of negotiating, or doing this step for that, or however it is. It’s easy to rationalize that. And when you do, you sell yourself short. And that’s kind of an example, too. And so, your dream is if there was like a schematic or a theme, a statement to be made in terms of a general overall way of describing what you’re doing, you’re doing something that involves, underneath all of this, a type of polishing. And you’re not polishing if you sit in a hoping-to-be included kind of way.

And you’re not polishing if what you’re doing is done for the purposes of expectation. You have to do the polishing, or the quality of how it is that you are, for the sake of getting closer to, vibrationally, something more, that is always wanting, and has the need, to naturally be there.

You don’t look at the masculine quality as the seed of things, separate from that which pulls to that. If you do, then some part of you pents up, in some fashion, in an unnatural way. You come to hear the naturalness of both sides – and that’s what pulls both together.

Very complicated dream, actually. But it was in keeping with kind of the theme. The theme had to do with kind of like a process of opening up; an orientational process of opening up, and how you’re supposed to kind of hear that process. And you don’t hear it in terms of a this to that, kind of thing. It’s how you hear the process.
