portal-of-lightIt’s easy to look at the boundaries of our skin and think we end there. And, of course, physically we do. But what about the boundary of the universe? Energetically, that is our only limit. And that puts human beings in the middle of a grand unfolding, in which what we do, what we think, and what we connect to energetically in our lives matters. It makes a difference, just as one bad cell can become a disease. That’s why all religions and spiritual pursuits ultimately point to a person choosing the higher purposes of life, because otherwise we become a diseased cell within the higher system (and all healthy systems in the universe seek to rid themselves of disease).

John: So before I went into meditation, the seed thought for the night was established through the following statement, this comes from David Spangler, and this following seed thought is added and then we have to see what is revealed in relationship to this seed thought.

And the seed thought is: “When we speak of our incarnations as journeys away from God and spirit, when we think of life as a kind of exile from our real home, when we think of ourselves as divided into souls and personalities, when we think of the physical world as simply an illusion from which we must awaken, we may well be speaking and thinking in a language of separation rather than connection and wholeness-making.”

So that’s the seed thought. So what arose out of that seed thought is a dream in which the energetic of what was taking place has a vibration and a note to it. And it’s also part of you. Everything that is affected is part of you, and you are able to denote that in a world in which there is only this, as David Spangler would say, connection and wholeness-making, for that to be truly so you have to quit keeping the subtle notion of time.

If you drop the subtle notion of time you can’t die. There’s only a soul awareness. It is always with you, which would be the same thing as saying that you’re able to recognize yourself to be all things, or different things, or parts of this, or parts of that, and you’re able to transcend the limitations of space.

But now let’s transcend the limitations of time. And when you do that, the physical body can die and you can have an awareness that still resides in the physical plane. But things have changed even further and, in terms of the veils that are kept based upon expansive and contractive, in other words, the expanse being the ethers, the cosmos, and the contractive being manifestation, when you remove that veil, in other words, everything being wholeness-making, that which is here you are able to live through and know, as if you are still in the conceptualizations that had prevailed of time and space.

Yes, there’s some vibratory truth to it, but it’s fairly well hidden. In the future, where consciousness is going, those veils are being thrown away. The two are intertwined.

When you’re talking soul level, you’re actually talking not just others, but you’re talking in the physical as well. And when you’re talking soul level, you’re talking about effectuating something that transcends in, and over, and upon manifestation.

And a human being is typically, because of the veils kind of confined in terms of what that effect can be. Generally it’s only a temporal effect that can extend during their lifetime, during the magnetic energetic of a world bounded by a here and now, or the physical of time and space, but in the future, as you hone the closeness to the soul level, you will find that there is no time and space.

So what you connect with and catch up with in the physical now, that goes beyond the veils of perception that keep things separated, based upon time and space, once you are able to get beyond that, that’s why it’s important for the energy not to go into the heart, the life force has to go into the soul, and when it goes into the soul it goes out into all of the essence of everything that ever existed because that is you. When it does that, then the veils of time and space drop.

Well in the future, in where we’re going, there’s not going to be the redo overs, you know, where you come back and you have the veils that exist from a prior reincarnation. The word reincarnation again is playing with things in a duality. It’s keeping things in a double, instead of just the wholeness-making, a wholeness-making that is complete.

So where this is going is that ultimately you may drop the physical body, but you’re still going to be in both places – or you will have a soul that will know itself in its overall – and you will have a consciousness of oneness emerging in the world. So it’ll be like the physical can drop away, but not really, in terms of the aspects of a physical are still in cohesion in terms of the senses. But the sense is at a different, subtle level. Do you see what I’m trying to say?

Everything’s going to be there, all in one fell swoop. That is a very radical thought, isn’t it? Who can accept that thought? But that was what came out of this seed thing that I took and made a copy of: “Yet when we speak of our incarnations as journeys away from God and spirit…”, in other words, acting like there’s something on high, the heavens, and then there’s the manifestation.

“When we think of life as a kind of exile from our real home…”, okay, that’s again a this and a that. “When we think of ourselves as divided into souls and personalities…”, again a this and a that, a soul being something more and a personality being our dharma or something. “When we think of the physical world as simply an illusion from which we must awaken…”, in other words, like it’s a bad joke, and when we get through the joke we come to know something else? Which means that the joke falls away because it never really is, it’s not anything. That’s a duality now. “We may well be speaking and thinking in the language of separation, rather than connection and wholeness-making.”

So this set the tone for the dreams.

doad2As humans we are born with a unique set of skills, and each one of us can be the answer to a need in creation because no two people will take the same path through life. For those seeking to fulfill that possibility in their lives, doors and pathways will open up before them. Yet we also always have our freedom of choice: we can take those opportunities, or try a different way. This discussion follows the dream analysis from A Greater Vista.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: It reminds me of a dream in which Siddhartha, when he was born, or before he was born, he was born into a wealthy king family, there was a dream that occurred in which the interpretation of the dream was that this boy had two possibilities. One is he could become a really, really great king and effect a lot of changes in the countryside and in the kingdom. Or two, he could become a person that would be exalted in his renunciation of the physical, and thus a realization of some deep, deep inner depth.

So the parents were aware of this. They were aware of this dream. They believed this dream, and so they sheltered Siddhartha from seeing anything that could disturb him and cause him to want to trip into another depth world of renunciation or something – and he remained like this. In fact, he even submitted to an arranged marriage when he was like 28 or 29 years old.

And somehow in that whole process he came to realize that the world outside of the castle, and the world in the castle, were completely different. In other words, there was strife and poverty and death and all of that which, somehow or another, he hadn’t really come to grips with. So once he got married he was totally enamored in the marriage, but he now had this other that was plaguing him. And this was hitting in a way that was quickening what obviously was one direction or the other that he could turn.

He could stay in the wonderful marriage that he was in, and go on and become an exalted king, or this other, he could turn his attention to that. He chose to turn his attention to coming to grips and dealing with and understanding the plight of everything. So he did it in a very, very confused way. He deprived himself of everything. He just disappeared from a wonderful marriage that he was in. He went out and he got so gaunt and so thin, renunciating things, and eating one grain of rice a day and whatnot, as if that was going to cause him to realize something.

He fell in even with a band of renunciates that were somewhat like that, except he always took everything to a greater extreme, and he even took himself to the verge of death. And suddenly he had this realization, or recognition, that in terms of another kind of clarity that he needed to rise up and be strong with instead of the weakened condition that he had gotten himself into. He needed to eat. He needed to bring himself back into life.

So the renunciants he was with renounced him because he was now betraying of the cause, and out of this evolves what became Buddha. But for quite awhile while he was doing this other, he had to go through this whole process of a type of purging before he could come to realize what the inner process was really all about.

Your dream reminds me of that because it points out something that’s kind of like that. It points out that you have a natural inclination to shape something that can be part of a process, in which something is shaped, that has a real shine to it, but you do it in a subservient way where you do not project yourself to where you are able to function in an independent capacity from with inside of yourself.

You rely upon the guidance around you, and the time comes when you recognize that you have the insightfulness, the key inside of yourself, to take a step forward and be more effective straightaway, instead of dependent, that you can reach those levels inside yourself or open that quality of a guidance seeing and hearing from within, and shape accordingly.

And when you do that, and when you take that push forward, you stimulate the Kundalini energy of your nature that’s necessary to go along with that unfoldment. When you do that you’re then presented with two options, two different ways of being. One is you can hold the presence of what you’ve realized and recognized and maintain that in the space of something more that’s opened up. However, it is defined. It is something that is now visible.

Or you can take it into a greater outer, into a greater soul, world soul or something. You could soar with that. You could take that quality that’s shaped and, so to speak, dismantle the gem in that it becomes a type of pervasive nothingness that goes into the outer, into the whole.

In other words, the option is to hold a space that has a recognized brilliance or, upon accessing it, going into a way of carrying this into a greater overallness. It’s something that isn’t defined because where that kind of expansive realm goes is hard to denote.

In other words, if you’re looking at what you were doing with the energy is you were taking the life force and making it loud in a physical world sense way, in conjunction with having achieved and awoken a clarity within, that then was more greatly grounded by bringing it through, bringing it into a foundation.

The loudness of that kind of swallows you up from the standpoint then that the life force that goes into the soul of the world, you can’t find yourself necessarily in something like that because you don’t accentuate a quality of passion in life that is apparent and obvious. The passion in life is visible, it’s obvious to others. When you take it into the soul there’s an illumination that is only accessible to those who have reached a point that they can gain or glean from that. The illumination extends out. It’s almost like a ray of sight. It’s like an example of something with that illumination would be a teacher that can kind of see the soul of things, and their sight touches out, touches things in terms of touching out into all that exists.

It’s like you’re at a crossroads, one to be lived, and the other is something else; it’s what is intended.

amd-summit-ridgeMost mountain climbers never reach the summit. So it is on a spiritual journey, where most people find a certain level in their process and then maintain that rather than forge into new territory. There are two important ideas in this about freedom of choice. First, it is our right as a human to choose to continue further or to maintain where we are. That is a proof of the importance of freedom of choice. And second, it is also freedom of choice to continue choosing, because the universe can’t assume we’ll choose, so we actually have to continue to choose all the days of our lives – if we want to. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: In the next dream, I’m sitting at the desk of a bank officer. In other words, it’s like I’ve gone into the bank. You know how bank officers they have their desk, and so you sit down at the desk and they’re on the other side. And this is a bank officer, a key bank, who has made a mistake on my account that I’m there to get corrected – and I’m pretty upset, which means I’m putting a lot of pressure on him over the mistake. It shouldn’t have happened.

He says to me, “Don’t worry, I will fix it.” Then he says to me, “I will make all these changes to your account, and then you still are going to leave.” Meaning I’m going to kill the account because I’m so pissed. I assure him, in the firmest language possible, and he even quibbles with me. We’re arguing the subject now, that that is not what is going to happen. He argues with me that I am going to leave, and I argue back even stronger that no, I’m not.

To my surprise he suddenly quits arguing, sits back, and starts to tear up.

Meaning: All sorts of changes have occurred within me to make me more conscious, even though the teacher is, or this process is done in a way in which there is no guarantee. In fact, the odds are against it. So it’s almost virtually a situation of being convinced that in the end a person ultimately leaves.

In other words, they make some steps on the path only up to a degree. Everyone only does one or two steps on the path and then they kind of… well, the term is they seal. In other words, they’re mutable, flexible, that’s why it talks about longing being important because you can go as far as the longing can carry you. At some particular point you tend to seal, or become satisfied, and more ordered in the nature of the outer and that is when the process stops.

Deep down, however, on some inner depth, I don’t see that happening with myself, and so I quibble about this idea that is always a danger zone inside. Now, when he tears up, because he’s like the teacher, is it because one, he realizes that he was wrong about me and that perhaps I will keep on going and going? Or, is he tearing up because what he sees that is going to happen in terms of my leaving in the future is hard to take at a certain level of closeness, at least when the certain level of the veils are removed? 

The teacher, of course, is really of a nature in which that closeness never changes. The steps are taken, but if the teacher went up and down like that then they would be in a veil. The teacher always sees the student the same at the beginning as they then see themselves then at the end. It’s always the same, or otherwise you would have something peculiar like this.

Deep down I know that there is a flow in the connection, but I also know that this can be worked with. Of course the flow is in me, and my higher self is working with it as best it can. As this prior dream indicated the flow of a reactionariness can get in the way if it goes off. And so that’s what causes something that can have such a nice cadence to it to suddenly go haywire – when the reactionariness comes in.
