1pCjIt has often been said that every challenge, or difficulty, is really an opportunity for growth. And it is the way of all things:  a virus or parasite can affect many things, but the immune systems strengthen and build new defenses. When animals eat the leaves of a tree, the tree develops strategies to make the leaves taste bitter. Without struggle, nothing learns, and nothing can evolve. As humans, with the gift of freedom of choice, we always have the option of choosing to find the best solution for any situation. And it’s not meant to be a personal solution, it’s meant to be a solution that serves the purposes of the whole.

John: So, in the meditation dream, I observe that there is an unfoldment, which prevails in a pleasant surprise sort of way. The reason why I say that it prevails in a pleasant surprise sort of way is that, what I’m seeing, it surprises me because it’s not what I expected. And it comes to a point and it goes over a tipping point, in other words, over a particular degree. And when it goes over that particular degree, which I don’t know how to describe it, it’s like a tipping point, then it means that it has to happen.

In other words, the energetic is in a process of unfoldment in which it is required to continue to continue. And so that throws me into wondering: what does it mean by tipping point? And the only clue I have is in terms of the sensation. The sensation is such that it ultimately is okay. It ultimately is okay, yet this has a sense of defying common sense, but I don’t have the sensation that what will unfold is dire.

And so I’m sitting there saying, what is really going on? What is this? What does it mean to be at a tipping point? Because I know that dreams, per se, don’t directly take and give you blow by blow, Pavlovian information, about a particular subject matter. They speak of an unfoldment process, of an awakening process, of the whole. And what goes on in the outer is nothing more than fodder for that wholeness, within, to evolve.

So I’m sitting pondering that what is taking place, in a greater inner depth, is meaningless. It’s meaningless. In other words, it’s not an end all, be all, that you put in some sort of good mode, or bad mode, up or down, end all, be all, or not, kind of thing. It is an aspect, as if it’s a part of a process in which it is taken into account in such a way that it is a precursor to helping to facilitate a greater awakening.

That was one way of looking at what tipping point meant. I’m not sure what to quite make out of the fact that there’s no catatonic nature here, that it seems to be okay with it. I’m not sure what to make out of that.

If I look at it from an external standpoint, I would say that that means that it’s meant to work out. But if I look at it from, perhaps, a bigger picture where it all is pushing to something so much more, I could say that all of that is, in the eyes of the big schematic of things, insignificant completely, and that it is part of a process. But not in the way that I’m indulging.

And so the conclusion is, the energetic within is, in the end, okay with the situation. My higher self is not taking any sides one way, or another, except saying a tipping point, whatever that means, is apparent. And the tipping point is what is important.

the-road-less-travelledWe may know the pain of betrayal when it is felt because of the actions of another person, but do we recognize it when we do it to ourselves? That is the dilemma described in this dream, and it is a crossroads that anyone on a spiritual journey must face: when do we choose to protect and nurture what we feel to be true about the spiritual side of life, rather than bend our decisions to fit in with the concept that others may hold about life – the collective view of things? It is always our choice to make, but until we do, in a conscious way, our progress will always be impeded. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: Now I really did like my meditation dream that set the stage for this, and it was very short. In the meditation dream, I dream that there is a person who is discredited because this person is not relating to the sound in the environment. Everyone else is relating to it.

Those I know are pooh-poohing this, as if such conduct that relates to something other than the outer natural sound, they’re pooh-poohing this quality this person carries as ridiculous, or meaningless. In other words, they don’t see anything in it.

So, deep down, I remember this to be aspected as some sort of higher-self awareness. In other words, it’s like I’m observing this. Everybody’s pooh-poohing it, and, as I’m observing it, I’m sitting thinking maybe I need to go along with everybody else, because I don’t need to take the abuse of this person that’s being pooh-poohed is taking, because no one understands them.

And so however this person is, it’s ridiculous that this person is like that. So I am noticing, in the dream… Well, first of all, as I am looking at this, I am sorting this out a little bit. Do I stay with the collective, or do I support this guy a little bit? Because some part of me knows that this person is coming from some sort of higher-self awareness, even though nobody gets it, and I’m able to notice this from the dream because I have had some sort of experience before, on this plane, deep within my beingness.

It’s not like I am living it anymore, because the easier way is to ignore this other that’s getting loud off to one side, this guy that’s ridiculous, because everybody else is all on the same page, and that’s the easiest way of going. But, as I’m doing this, as I’m pondering this, I suddenly realize I have a problem. If I side with this person with the inner-into-outer connectivity, I will be seen by the collective consciousness as being a wayward isolationist. If I support this estranged person, who deems that there is a sound that permeates, and something of a revealness of life beyond that, I will be rejected by my peers as being wayward, or, again, like him, an isolationist.

So therein lies a dilemma. Do I defy what I have come to know to get along with my collective consciousness? Because it’s suddenly leaking out that I’m seeing it, just like he’s mirroring it, and I’m somehow seeing it, but the others aren’t quite seeing it yet. The sleep dream went into showing how the mirroring becomes the inner and the outer coming together. Or do I isolate myself to this otherness that is before me, the collective?

So the meaning is, the meditation dream is pointing out that what I have come to know as an inner reality that permeates all of life is that the outer is something that applies to everyone that I relate to, in an ordinary outer-sense way, which means that they have either no idea that this innerness exists, or dismiss this as an aspect of stupidity, or imagination.

If I bring this up as an aliveness, from the higher-self nature of our beingness, I will be stirring up their confusion – because they don’t know any better. How can they know any better? And when I stir up their confusion, as in the sleep dream, all that can possibly happen, before anything can be redeemed, is all of this stuff will just pour out of their pores, the viruses and all of this that’s all-consumed them.

So the net effect is they will have to repudiate me as being someone who gives credence to an energetic that is dismissed as being insignificant. So isn’t that a strange one?

So now what has happened is one has taken the planes of manifestation, which are in sound, of which the light that permeates is somewhere else that’s beyond all of this, and that the human being is going along in a plane of sound never, ever, ever knowing what is really going on. And, eventually, there is a mirroring process that has to arrive, or show up, or come into the equation, and, until it does, it’s easier to go along with the collective.

There comes a point when you no longer can. There comes a point where something is so dire that it has to be rescued out of its plight, and when it’s rescued out of its plight, therein lies the hope, therein lies the promise of something more. But not until then.

Until then one goes back and forth, trying to sort something out, and, somehow or another, there is a leap of something there that results in the mirroring, as a mirroring that is based upon having to let go, because there’s no way you can identify with the viruses, and the germs, and the whole conditions of a creaturism of sound, that has no idea of an innerness that is other than that. And when you have the idea of that, when you recognize that there is that, that’s when it becomes possible to sustain a reflective potentiality. It’s a mirroring, isn’t it?

A teacher doesn’t teach by what they say. Like the statement that’s made, is that if the teacher has to tell you something in words that means they’ve failed. They have to teach through some means of creating an inflection reflection, and, if it’s put into words, they have failed. And so when a teacher does speak, or hold an event, the teaching is in terms of being able to hear somewhere, not literally the words, but to hear somewhere else, to get it somehow inflectively, because what you’re capable of understanding in a matter of words is the problem again.

So, again, this whole thing is about mirroring. It’s teaching about a mirroring. The light is a mirroring that we carry inside of ourselves.

DZ1If we knew a person who constantly let us down, or disappointed us, we would most likely stop associating with that person. So why is it that when life continues to unfold in unexpected ways, we still can’t let go of our belief that we can control such outcomes? Part of it is fear of the unknown. But we will never be truly with the everything until we are able to let go to its wisdom, and, thereby, be able to flow with the energetics that are always the cause of what is about to happen. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: My meditation dream took a condition in life to such an extreme, in terms of going into an understanding of things that happen in the outer, that I was able to see that nothing is secure, nothing is absolute, in the outer, in terms of how something can take place, or be.

Now there are certain things that may have a long, long life, that can have a certain semblance of security, and, if you happen to be a person who can actually access something like that, then hopefully you access it knowing that it too could break down – no matter how secure it appears -and you’d still be okay. And that you are thus able to function in a deeper, inner capacity, more and more, in a greater and greater at-easement, and emptiness, and stillness because the outer, and what goes on in the outer, is not what it’s about.

It’s a process that’s there to cause a greater connection of the inner, of the divine, of the greater beingness of one’s self. And that we’re actually bifurcated, and can’t help it. And so the meditation dream simply deals with the fact that there is a loudness that exists in relationship to the outer, and, as you wake up, so to speak, there can be this differentiating loudness. Can you learn to just let it go?

So, in this meditation dream, I’m aware that when there is a loudness, that is overwhelming to myself, that an inner-into-outer unfoldment is imminent. In other words, it’s imminent, but you have to let go of it to find it. But, initially, it gets like that where things reach a crescendo, where there is nothing you could do to satisfy anything.

So I stop to take in what is to be. In other words, that’s what you have to do. You have to stop. So in this dream I am not familiar with what the shift is to be. I just know it is imminent, and so I am stopping so that I can reassess the inner-into-outer situation, or unfoldment. From prior experience I know that the loudness is on a vibratory level that is not a transformation I am eager to reach, in other words, or I tell myself that it’s part of a transformation.

So I’m aware that this is like a deep-seated inner memory that is in my psyche, not my physical mind. In other words, what’s in my deep-seated inner psyche is the fact that nothing that can happen, nothing that is going on in the outer, is the end all, be all. I mean it’s an aspect of something that reflects and contains the innerness of something that is a silence, but my physical mind does not know that.

So what is going on is I have been at this inner-into-outer point before. In other words, somewhere deep, deep, deep inside I already know that everything that’s done in the outer, everything that happens in the outer, is something you can let go of because it’s not all that important. We make it important and, thus, create fear and anxieties, and all kinds of strange things.

Well, I may, in my awakened state, with my senses, not know any better, but in my psyche, I know that there is a reality that is more than I am capable of handling. So, in the outer, though, I’m continually trying to handle something. I’m continually looking to certain expectations, or ways in which something can unfold.

So the meditation dream is portraying that I know, from somewhere deep within, about a greater beingness within my being. I also know that the inner into outer is an inevitability I must accept, in terms of the overall beingness that is really me, which is a stillness, and an emptiness. It doesn’t have any antics about it. So, even though I know it to be so, I am not ready and see myself as fighting towards, and with, and in regards to, an inner balance, or a greater inner speed that is going to take what is discombobulated and obliterate my outer separate capacity deviations.

For the moment, in the meditation dream, I am in shock. I am frozen. I am confused, as I do not know what is coming, and do not believe that I am conceptually ready to handle this. In other words, as long as you’re holding onto something, and deep down you know that there’s nothing to hold onto, then you can never, no matter what you do, prepare because everything has to go.

So by conceptually ready, that’s my outer psyche’s way of saying that what is coming is going to be too much for me to cope with in my current conditioning. It’s not my outer psyche, it’s my inner psyche’s way, from deep, deep somewhere inside I know better about everything. My outer psyche is going to keep thinking that I could rearrange the deck chairs of things and create a result that is copable.

So, the deeper meaning is, what I am denoting so loudly in my dream is a sensation precursor that I know is going to be an overwhelm I am not able to cope with, given my current state of being, and that this is a plight I have no answer for because I cannot help myself. I am adamant about holding onto my outer plight because I function more from a standpoint of the senses, from fear and all of that, and see that as my motif or configuration.

What I’m talking about is that at-the-speed-of-light shift, which is a speeding up to a point it can absorb the outer condensed sound that is an orientation I know to be me. In other words, the outer shadow of myself is actually something that’s in a bifurcated mind, sound, sense, oriented outer density, and, that on the plane of light, all of that falls away, and there isn’t any attention that has to be placed in that regard.

So, you could say, as a scenario, that deep down I know that whatever I am doing, and however it is I am taking in the outer, change is coming from an innerness that is more than what I am able to handle. In other words, I will continually be trying to design the outer, as if it somehow or another can cope, and I might be able to do some things that have a greater sustaining power, but it’s still an outer condition that I can’t rest upon as an end all, be all. It can all change.

Everything is an inevitability that cannot be averted, meaning everything that’s designed in the outer is designed as something to constant change, even though the word constant is a variable. I am destined to an inner into outer, die before I die, askewed, anewed self. That’s a self that is not what I am capable of imagining with any sort of black-and-white clarity.
