Posts Tagged ‘energy and matter’

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.

2261751Energy and matter are the two fundamental states in the universe. And each one is seeking to be the other: energy wants to become matter, and matter wants to return to energy. Is it any different for the human, who always seeks a higher connection, back into the energetic realms of its arising? And this is what our spiritual and religious paths point us to, these connections and interactions between matter and energy, but raised to a level of consciousness – which changes everything.

John: And that’s what my dream was like, too.

In my meditation dream, I was looking at something in life, in the outer, as a light that kind of opened up in the outer, and that I was letting go of that light that opened up in the outer. And what I was doing was I was actually, in the dream, catching up with matter, a type of matter, that was on the inner.

Now this is complete bewilderment. What was going on was the breath was being flipped. The breath was being flipped – and it didn’t matter if the breath was flipped. It really didn’t matter, although at the time, it was a sensation of complete bewilderment because I’m inclined to sense something more in light on the in-breath. And then to get the sense that there is an out-breath coming through, and yes, maybe that’s kind of so because it’s with the out-breath that you come down into things, and the thought-upon-thought is that’s a type of matter, and that was something I was trying to settle for. And I went around and around inside.

I was looking at it almost in the opposite regard way, but I was still looking at it with respect to the breath and I realized, not right away, instead I was still trying to make it make sense because I was using flip sides of the breath. I was attempting to make it make sense, and so in the meditation dream I wasn’t able to wake up with the meditation dream, and so I couldn’t come out of it because there was no resolution in that regard.

And so then I kind of went into a sleep. In other words the meditation dream was there inside, I dreamt movement around that, trying to find something, trying to make it make sense, and in trying to make it make sense I was trying to find the lightness, or why the out-breath somehow or another, as an aspect of matter, because that’s how I was looking at it, it was like the light was being given up, and that I was in a presence of light. The light was being given up, and I was trying to deal with matter. And I guess it was the flip side because I’m used to thinking that matter is the problem, and that I’m trying to deal with something more in the light.

So it was like the opposite side of the breath, flipping the breath around, just like when one does the dhikr. The Naqshbandis do it in which you release, vibrationally, in the in-breath, and the Chistis do it in the out-breath. And it was like I was getting a sensation of a visualization in the opposite way, and, in trying to view this as something that was significant and important, but it wasn’t. It wasn’t, it was just more of the same of how an illusion is perpetuated with the in-breath and the out-breath, and that this takes you outside of the stillness. But I never got it in that. In that I was in a state of bewilderment because I was still trying to make it make sense by futtering with the breath. And I got it in the dream.

i555sWhat we see in the world around us can only tell us a fraction of the story, just as a freshly baked cake can only tell us a little about the ingredients that went into making it. But, as humans, we can connect to the energetic underpinnings of things and arrive at a much deeper level of knowing than we can get to when we only use our five senses. And, when we learn to do that, we can become a conduit for bringing new energies into the world, which can then bring about the next changes we see manifest around us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So my first meditation dream is adamant about the fact that change happens from the inner, continually from the inner, and tells a long story in terms of showing how that is. And that the outer is really consequential in terms of its reflective.

And then my sleep dream proceeds to go on and show that that which is considered an inner in the outer now, or what has been in the outer now, is an inner that has been in the outer to such a degree that, in order for something to occur, it doesn’t occur with that that has been in the outer. It occurs from something completely anew again, again coming from the inner to cause that to shift and change – because it can’t change in relationship to how it has been conducting itself in the outer.

In other words, it’s almost like you could say that if it’s been conducting itself or going along in the outer for a couple thousand years, and now it still acts as if it’s got a right to turn the corner this way or that way, or drive the car this way or that way, no, when that goes, that goes as a consequence of not something emerging from the reflective. The reflective can’t do this. It will emerge from a deeper innerness.

And that is the role the masculine. The role of the feminine is to uphold that which is designed and ordained. The role of the masculine is not to sit and become so pacified that it allows injustice to continue, and continue, and continue to the point where the malaise is such that nothing appropriate or proper can transpire.

So, in the meditation dream, the metaphor for the entire energetic flow and unfoldment is represented as a chart. It shows what life is on a chart, now, and it’s a chart for a company that’s kind of like deemed to be the company of companies. It’s called Attack Resources. So I monitor, or observe, or look at the trade action of the stock, meaning I have at my disposal the key to what is going on.

The significant feature I found myself making note of is, in this imagery, is the fact that my attention was fixated upon inner price movement effects, the inner price movement effects of the stock. In the dream I had a sense of what inner meant, and what outer meant, that dwelled only upon the inner effect. I dwelled so much on the inner effect that it could be said that in this dream I paid no attention to the outer effect. I was also careful to not let any wayward thoughts interfere with the focus.

What I mean by that is thoughts in terms of other energetic action, you know like other stocks, or other possibilities, were never entertained. Consequently, I was firm in my belief that everything going on in the world was visible and knowable in terms of the goings on of this stock. By goings on what I mean is the expansive and contractive, up and down, cycle action of the company. By company I mean the universe, and the action is expansive, or contractive; in this dream that is deemed to be because of an inner into outer motion.

In other words the inner coming in is expansive, and then when it hits into the outer it becomes contractive because when you portray something reflectively it then contracts. So I’m treating the response as being a reflective response to the inner unfoldment, so I do not place my attention upon the reflective.

Significance: Although physical perceptions are outer in that the physical senses are oriented to the physical plane, I am being shown in this meditation dream that it is not the outer action which effectuates change in life or, to put it another way, the reflective outer is not where I look for change. I look just to the inner, which makes itself known by being the insightfulness and beingness unfoldment of the universe.

That is very odd. That is the name, yeah. Attack Resources. So what was also significant is that my attention was upon just one thing. By one thing what I mean is that I did not acknowledge the existence of any other energetic unfoldment. Because I used Attack Resources as the metaphor for manifestation, that is, for something that is in manifestation, so in other words that’s the result, like the energy has come through, and the reflective is what’s under attack – in terms of how it handles it. As the metaphor for manifestation, this metaphor is the one thing. Nothing else but this exists as the means, and device, for the unfoldment of inner into outer.

The meaning is, is because Attack Resources is me, the meaning of the dream is I, as a human being, am the means upon which an inner and outer rapport exists. I am the seed thought beingness for the inner into the outer evolution. So, to put it bluntly, the idea that the reflective outer has in some way a say in the process is delusional – based upon the meditation dream image.
