0_zvIt’s obviously tempting to offer our solutions for any situation we may find ourselves in. But, from a certain viewpoint, this is pointless because we live in a duality, a place of opposites, so most times a solution is just an attempt to rebalance something from the opposite extreme. In this way, it’s not a real solution, it’s just soothing the symptoms not addressing the actual cause. If we, instead, can hold an inner stillness, then we offer the two opposites an opportunity to refine, or elevate, which is an evolutionary change. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: Well, when you initially meditate, and you just go somewhere that is very soothing, and then suddenly you just come back out of the Dhyana of the meditation, you’ve gone into a place that’s very, very soothed and has quickened an attunement, so to speak, such that if you were affected by something in the outer during the day, that normally you would just gloss over, or just would fall by the way boards, you’ve actually kind of picked up something inside of yourself as kind of a speed, or a pace, or a depth that comes close to that.

Now, eventually, you’ll get so that you can actually see that, you can actually note that, in the meditation. But, initially, all you’re doing is tweaking that as if it is something that has been stimulated by the molecular of your nature, it’s been stimulated, embedded, as if it’s embedded within as a vibrational imprint within the molecular of your nature.

And so, then, when you come to bed, because that’s been stimulated, and not at a depth yet, or at a point yet, where you can notice that in the meditation dream, you are noticing it somewhere on an inner depth of yourself, so then when you come to bed, when you dream, you can go deeper with your dreams, you can go to this point more easily. Otherwise, you might be affected by other things and such, that are going on in the outer, the malaise of things being so much – thoughts upon thoughts upon thoughts of things, the reflective being to such a great degree that you go around and around in a kind of a malaise, a delirium, unable to… well, you don’t go anywhere, you’re caught in that.

But, from having meditated and quickened something, then you can develop these inflections, these light bulb moments, that leak through, so to speak, that you can grasp in the dream world, instead of it being all smothered. This kind of understanding is something that needs to exist in life, because when you come across situations where you see things that are askew, the thing that you need to be able to see and to note is: why are they askew? Sometimes they’re askew because something has come up that has been repressed, into the nature of a person, is leaking out now, it no longer can stay repressed.

And sometimes things are shut down because there is a trauma built into what you see in the outer, and that trauma is shut down. And you can look at that, and you can know that, eventually, that will not necessarily stay the case when you can see that the nature of the person is unnatural because of something.

And, generally, when you see this, you can’t put your finger on what that is because it’s oftentimes a pre lifetime. It’s just part of a veil that the soul hasn’t worked through yet, and does not necessarily have anything to do with the outer conditions that you’re aware of – in this lifetime. So it can be a pre lifetime thing.

And so everyone has this condition. And this condition is something that has to run its course in our nature. In other words, this amnesia has to run through, and, when it runs through, we are able to come more into an intertwined connectivity of our being, everything then starts to make sense as a quality of an unfoldment. But, until it does, then we, too, are victims and caught in this kind of atmosphere that pervades wherever and however you look. And yet there are attempts to shift that.

The underlying difference in all of these threads is where’s the heart? The question you asked, or the point that you made, in relationship to your meditation, in terms of the fact that you just go somewhere and you suddenly come out soothed, that’s how it starts. That’s the Dhyana. And eventually it gets deeper and deeper to the point where you might even start becoming conscious of what it is that you are getting into the depth of, in a very quiet way, that you’re capable of dealing with.

Because, if approached too directly, it will drive you crazy. It will be something that causes you to crack up, because to look at certain things, in terms of whatever the trauma was, that trauma, or that quality which was too much for you, and everyone has this too much ism in their nature of some trauma or another, that causes crack-ups.

And so that’s why a path of consciousness to awaken, and to get out of the reflective outer, is a very, almost dangerous and awkward path to take because you have to come to grips with this aspect of yourself in order to become real.

So the things that you’ve gone through when you’ve gone astray from the stillness have caused you to experience things that are over the top, too much, and then you repress those into your nature. And then you use a certain heartfulness energy, and expansive quality spaciousness of your being, to keep those things in check. And, every now and then, they leak out. And they have to leak out. And, in some cases, they are measured in the way that they leak out, so that they come out slowly, but, in some cases, they come out very quickly. And if they come out too quickly, they can lead to insanity and a crack up.

And so, how do you deal with a humanity that is caught up like this, that has this as a condition? The only way you can deal with that is you have to deal with them, helping them, to see the silence of a stillness, of a quality inside of themselves, so that they can redeem themselves. Otherwise, there is a fight, you create more delirium, which is another fighting of it on another level.

And therefore nobody gets to a stillness and the silence. What you have to do is you have to work with and accommodate the atmosphere, which is done in a silent way, not with any kind of overt direction. And, if you support it in a silent way, it then is following a course of evolution and unfoldment that is meant to be. And that’s why it happens like it happens, but we always have our opinion, or our belief, or our rationalization, or our trying to figure something out getting in the way. The silence is the only answer, no solutions.

tew_handHow do we evolve? We evolve by trying new things, discovering if we like to do that thing, and finding out if we have any talent or facility with it. Some we keep doing, others are set aside. It is in this trying that we also get new intelligence, because we often don’t know much before we begin, yet suddenly much information will flood into us. This is why we have to put our spiritual understandings into practice, we have to use them in our daily life. Otherwise, it is just a philosophy; by doing it, it can become reality. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: And so, in the next, in deep meditation and the Dhyana meditation, what goes on there is so far within that it is inaccessible. In my dream, I note that I am in a scenario where I am not appreciating what is happening within; I’m unable to sense it. What I am noticing is how dismissive I am, when I find myself to be in such an outer scenario.

In other words, you’re dismissive of bringing in the subtle, because you don’t know it enough in terms of this value of the stillness. So, from this, I experience a catching up with, and a knowing of, what is going on. My sense of this is one of exhilaration.

What am I describing? Talking about a subtle level of up and down energy, as a pattern, is in the way of a deeper stillness. In other words, deep inside I can go somewhere. I’m realizing that there’s kind of like a couple three things that occur inside oneself at a very, very, deep depth, that aren’t quite the stillness, but are close to it, but still need to be brought out into the open; should be reflected in the open. Or otherwise they create a spiritual distortion.

And so I’m seeing this very subtle level of kind of an up and down. And I call it an up and down in that there’s something really, really hidden inside, and then there’s the down side of it of an acting out, in the outer, that doesn’t quite take that into account.

And so this creates a yo-yo effect in which you’ve got something of a deep inner essence, and something of an outer effect – and you’re not integrated. You’re not intertwined. And when a person’s not intertwined like that, then they may go through these episodes where they’re feeling wonderful, and then they’re feeling sad. And the degree to which you’re feeling elated and wonderful, usually it corresponds to, at another point in time, the flip side of that coin. You’re now feeling depressed, or sad.

And even Proverbs of the Bible talks about this as a condition in which a person is admonished at being able to hold the middle, which would be a stillness, not thrown around by the energetics of an excitement this way, or a depression that way, because they echo off of each other.

Or to put this more bluntly, in the dream, I am noticing an inner vibratory up and down nature of a holding back, and then an excitement coming out, or however you would say that, but not quite really a coming out. And my attention is taking me into the outer and away from the next, deeper level of stillness.

In other words, this is that same greater pattern portrayed in a subtler way. Observation: maybe the trite dreams I was having, that portray this symbolically, will come back. In other words, kind of what kind I’m writing up, but I can’t quite pull the full dream down. At two different times, the alarm in my had went off and I was able, at that time, to write down my dreams. But if I had just accepted that, but in my linear in-betweenness I deemed the dreams to be too trite.

To put the denial bluntly, I keep being dismissive and remain in a holding back reservation. The underlying theme is a stillness that embodies all vibrations, and everything that is vibratory, which to an ego is not newsworthy. It’s not exciting. So the ego is at home with up and down hoopla and, in other words, kind of holds space in a way that doesn’t get lost in the stillness.

soul_bodyWho are we, and what is our identity, when we completely let go? We can imagine it as being fully and truly ourselves, without the psychologies and reactivities we carry, and in the flow of the energetic whole. We may think that our psychologies are who we are, but they are just pattern formations to help us manage the world we are in. In the real world of energetic cause and effect, we won’t need our psychologies, because we are no longer managing the situation. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: And then there’s the meditation dream, where it starts off where you have this person who goes up to kind of a game board in life, much like going into a casino, for example, and up to something where you go through the motions of playing some sort of variable.

Only it starts off, in this inner dream, in that the person is able to inject their head entirely into a void so that there is no thinking, or reacting, whatsoever, in terms of what happens. In other words, it’s almost like your mind stops. In other words, they’re totally consumed. When like this there is nothing that can affect them, and nothing can occur that would faze them out of this neutral beingness, a beingness that just isn’t taking every blow in the heart.

The reason is because this is an image in which there is no reflective outer reactiveness in the way, and you’re just letting something unfold naturally. When something unfolds naturally, you stay in this greater spatiality of your heart.

In the next image, the letting go is not complete. In other words, now we’re bringing in where you’re having to contend with this to some degree. There is still an inner evaluatory judgment to this image – and that will affect the outcome.

Whenever there is any mindfulness involved, the empty space needed is directly compromised. This results in a predetermined fate that involves thought-upon-thought effects. Wherever this exists, it results in an outcome as if the outcome is in the hands of the greater collective consciousness, of which we are the greater collective consciousness caught in that mind-upon-mind or thought-upon-thought modality. Such an outcome is what one goes through all the time. These are the outcomes. This is the way we are on the plane of manifestation, thus there is a constant decay, or breaking down.

So in this image the active imagination isn’t in a natural flow. Would you call it an active imagination? I mean how do you describe how something just, in the first image, just let go, and went into whatever it was doing, just took it in, just swallowed it, so to speak, as if putting one’s head into a void where you didn’t have the thought-upon-thought?

In this image I come up before a person who draws the tarot cards, who is pulling out cards for a part of myself that I know. The cards are bright and shiny, and the important cards had a number like 65,000 on it. So deep down I see this as a seeking, upon the outer plane of manifestation, an addictive aspect, meaning that no matter how I may yearn for a suitable outcome, the space I am in is being affected, or compromised, just enough that my thought-upon-thought causes me to lose touch with the greater heartfulness of the soul.

So the meaning is that the first part of the dream has to do with an image regarding a letting go to an inner process in which I surrender to what is meant to be. It’s not just surrendering. I’m just how one’s meant to be. In other words, I’m just not letting anything taking on anything that causes a thought-upon-thought way to have to sort out in the heart – which means I’m just kind of taken.

Wherein the second dream there are thoughts that come up, in terms of the action, and, as a result, the heart has to assess this in terms of how to contend with it. In the first image, I can be in a thought-upon-thought plane of manifestation and shut it completely off, meaning I go somewhere deep within the essence of life, which is like being taken. It’s like being under the care of something, of a stillness or something, of a wholeness.

And in the second image I am not able to quite repeat the process as I am entangled, and thus involved, and, as a consequence, will be compromised by the effects of the outer machinations, in which I am subject to being in the manifestation in a reflective appearance way.

To be in life, the challenge is to watch what one puts in the heart because, if what one puts in the heart goes into the subtle molecular reflective vibration of a thought orientation, that becomes the collective consciousness, and the result is a bifurcation from the real light.

So, in the heart, in the first image, there is no thought-upon-thought, and thus the heart is not in any way imprisoned. Where in the second image there is a pain that remains, because the heart is yet vying into a reflective outer thought orientation oriented manifestation.

In the first image everything is set aside so there is just the magnetized breath shaping what is meant to be, while in the second image either the imagination, or the collection of thoughts in a collective consciousness realm, causes suffering and illusion to continue.

The first image is of protection from that which compromises the heart. The second image takes a common hope and seeks to affect an appearance to be conditional to allow an acceptable delusional illusion outcome.

In the second image, thoughts are involved which tear away the overall fabric and introduce the collective goings on, that are veils, that are thought-upon-thought. I mean all of it makes up what we call manifestation, which veils the inner letting go emptiness from being able to be.
