i43gesWe used to see people in sensory-deprivation tanks, the idea being that it was calming and it allowed other internal processes to happen. But, at a certain point, sensory deprivation is starvation to our systems. We are designed to process energies, but we also feed off of the energies of the things we interact with. A spiritual journey tries to elevate the quality of the energetic food we live on, yet we also have blockages, often in the form of defense mechanisms or psychologies, that prevent us from getting the higher nutrition we seek.

John: So you could say the meditation dream set the table, but doesn’t necessarily drill down to what is really going on because that’s not the nature of a really, really deep meditation. A meditation takes and gives you the great, great overall schematic. So then you can have a sleep dream and you can deal with the specifics, and the minutiae, of the energetic that is actually there, going on. 

And so, in this dream, I go back into the last aspect of the meditation dream. In other words, this is where you take the reflections that have come through, that have images to them, so you’re having to identify now. And now you’re putting this into motion.  

The first aspect was that something surfaced out of the stillness, and, in and of itself that was harmless enough, was just something that was curious or something noticeable. The second aspect is that it had distinct images about itself. And then the third aspect is that it was brought through and then put into motion. It would be like a sequential dream. 

So I’m going now into this third aspect, where it has been put into a sequencing of an unfoldment as a dream. So, in this dream, having back into this third aspect of the meditation, which is where the issue of bringing an energetic all the way through into life exists, the setting is one in which I am in the street. I’m dealing with something that’s in the street, or in the overallness, in an aspect of a city, we’ll say.

At this point, the second part has been done. The images are known and now it’s a matter of how this goes into a flow. In the first part, I have this pant leg. So what the pant leg looks like was, the pant leg came down, and then right around the knee, there was like a little design, actually folded a little, just like it had a cord or something around it. And then it came down the rest of the leg from there. 

So I had gotten down to the knee area, hit the design, and then it’s meant to go from the knee down. So I know now that I have to come from the knee down, but the setting I’m in is it’s along the street, and, in this particular block, there are cars already parked there on that side. So I stare at this and I’m wondering, what can I do about this? 

But the consolation that I have is, it seems to be in the same directionality as the second part where the images came through, that I was able to be okay with the images coming through. But putting it into motion, going beyond – call it the middle part – the second part, to bring things through, I need to take the energetic down from the knee area to the ground, and, to do so, I have to do this in an area where there are cars currently parked. 

I know I can take the energy down. But what confuses me, in the dream, is what about these other cars already parked here? And I do not see them moving anytime soon. I’m feeling that this must be done before the end of the day. And I know there is nothing to suggest that any of these cars, along this entire city block, are moving anytime soon. Something is parked up a blockage. 

Now that’s interesting as a dream. But here comes another one. This drills down, too. In another dream, I see myself – it’s like midafternoon – and it starts off innocuous enough in which I’m just with some people and going down kind of a corridor this way and that way. Suddenly this corridor opens up into a room, and, in this room, there are books on shelves and then there’s a lower counter and there is food. It’s not like there’s a lot of food, but there’s enough food that’s ample for me and whoever I’m with.

I ask about how long this has been here, because see I’m like a bum in this dream. That’s my setting. If you’re a bum, when they get something given to them, or handed to them, that’s as good as it gets. So I ask about this, because I’ve never been here before, and I’m told this setup has been like this for a couple of days. And that each day, the food is replenished.

So, in this dream, I’ve come across the scenario for the first time, my initial feeling is that this is something that’s quite temporary. In other words, it’s kind of like a holiday spirit thing, and it will go away when the holidays are over. 

So as I look around, in looking around I’m not paying close attention to the food anymore, I’m looking around at the books and trying to see if there’s anything on the shelves that I can make out, because they’re all used books and whatnot. But maybe there’s some good books. And, try as I might, I can’t make out any titles; I keep staring, trying to make out what these books are about, as if there’s something that might be important for me to read. And then, when I turn my attention back to the food, which seemed like it was sufficient for us, because we had arrived early enough and everything, there isn’t much left – just some nuts. I remember thinking in the dream, this will get me by, but not everyday like this, because this is not a proper meal. 

So the meaning is, of both dreams now, in the first dream, I am being told that for what is needed to come to fruition, it needs to be brought all the way through, and, to do so there is a problem in that the area where this is to occur is already occupied; cars are parked there.

How am I going to do that? They’re not moving; I need them out of the way before I could put something in place. I need to flow in that area and there are cars there.  

And, in the second dream, I’m not able to see what I need to see for reading purposes. And the meal they are performing is incomplete. To begin with, to find a place where things are provided was exhilarating, but what I thought I had found is not ample for my needs over an extended period of time. Also, there is no extended period of time. What I’m finding is not a regular day-to-day occurrence  – it is there only during a very specific period of time, and this will go away. I cannot depend upon it.

t45ffmbFor most of us, there isn’t anything particularly spiritual about our careers, our family life, or our maintenance life, where we take care of everything that needs to be taken care of. How much time does that leave us? The only way to fix this is to make everything we do spiritual, because our jobs will never matter to the universe, but our integrity and the way we treat people does matter, and our good intentions matter as well. What principles do we uphold? What honor and respect do we show to everything around us? In this is the real seedling of spiritual growth, and we are foolish to think that someone else’s opinion of what we are doing, or intending to do, is more important than the universe’s view of what we do and think.

Jeane: I just had these dreams that didn’t seem to go anywhere, in a way. It felt like in one dream I was going between my dad’s house and the building across the street, which used to be an old hospital that’s been converted into apartment units. And the reason I was going back and forth is I was carrying these animals. I couldn’t see one very clearly. The other I’m pretty sure was a rabbit, that belonged to somebody else, and I was trying to teach somebody else the trick of how to get the rabbit to stay more still and not jump off – and that took a lot of concentration.

The trick was to place it on your body, and it could walk around a bit, or move around a bit, but you didn’t want it to jump off. You wanted to do something that made it want to stay more still so that you could carry it from one place to the other.

So it felt like I was going back and forth, and when I would get somewhere I was judging the whole situation by how the rabbit behaved, then, whether it had stayed still, or only crawled where it was supposed to crawl, or only jumped off once and got back on. The dream seemed to take a long time because I was going back and forth with the rabbit, and some other animal, and trying to show someone else how you did that.

John: What you’re doing is you are looking at qualities in your nature, qualities that are not very developed. That’s why they’re more jumpy, and animalistic, and you’re looking at those knowing that they interfere with you being able to sort things out in a way that has a calmness, or a balance, or a stillness to it.

In other words, the reflection in the outer across the street is even something that’s in a disarray, and in attempting to contend with whatever you have to contend with, over there, you have this quality of needing to do this in a way that is not reactive, or caught up, in some imbalanced mannerism that keeps you askew.

And so, in your dream, you’re using this dream to show that there is a reactiveness, or a mannerism, that you are getting caught up in, that from the perspective of the dream, from a deep depth inside of the dream where you could lucidly look at that, it looks absolutely ridiculous because you can see that you’re attempting to find a stillness, but you’re certainly not making much progress doing that. And not only that, but you even have the odd belief that you can show this to others – as if this will help them – when what you’re doing is you’re running a counter shadow to what you know is the place that you need to be at, which is a stillness inside.

And so the fact that you act as if having to work with this kind of shallow energetic within, or lower-self energetic within, the fact that you think that you need to do this and show this to others, and whatnot, is another way of portraying to you that what is directing and causing you to go across the street, to strike out, to have a disarray of things in your life, is because the doingness that is in your nature has this characteristic haunting you.

Jeane: And the only other dream I remember it felt like, again, I was on the road and we were stopping at a restaurant, and some other people come down and are sitting and eating at the same table with us. And again I seem to be focusing on the food. I think I’m taking it back to my relative’s house, and even on the food the other people have I’m looking at like which food do you wrap up and take back, and how do you wrap it up? There’s a certain way that you set it down and you wrap it up – if you want to take it back for other people, too. That was the only things I remembered from the two dreams.

John: So the thing that’s in common with both of those dreams is that you’re doing something in an outer context way, as if that will lead to some sort of balance, or letting go, or completeness.

In this case, you have your ideas about how something should be packaged, or put together. And those ideas, if you’re looking at what those ideas are really doing to you, is they are putting you into some sort of modality, or mood kind of quality nature, in which there is an adamant characteristic to think that when you contend with that, in the way that it is being thrown at you, that somehow or another that that will actually wrap things up. But that idea, of how to wrap something up, is the problem.

flat10We see the power of synergy and connection everywhere: in large corporations, in rail networks, in flight or shipping lanes, each of these structures bring different pieces together to create a greater dynamic whole. We probably think we’re geniuses for coming up with these synergies, but perhaps it is just the way, and the urge, of the universe that these models are emulating? In other words, these are reflections of the greater desire of the whole to be brought together. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: And then I come to bed. I don’t go to sleep. I just suddenly have this huge visualization and I turn and write it up. Now the visions aren’t predictive visions. The visions are just part of the read process of reading something inside.

In this visualization, I visualize that I am in an area, kind of a food service area, and there is this swami or something that doesn’t say anything, and he’s actually blind, and he’s there. And as I’m looking at this I really don’t know what food I need, and the swami is there to help me with the food I need – but he’s blind. How’s he going to do that?

So, as a type of Prashad, swami energetically feels and puts the food on my plate that I need. In other words, you can’t even see it, but yet he’s putting it on my plate, which is something I would not know how to administer to myself because I would have a personal cognitive outer mannerism that would get in the way.

The meaning is, the theme of the evening dealt with an inner vibratory flow possible when I let go of outer conditions that define, and shape, in a personal context way. Life is so much richer and more revealing if I let go of denser abstractions, and experience the vibrational flow of an inner unfoldment process, of an overall divine intelligence from the only being, the I am, the essence of essences. How do you get out of the way for that to just happen?

And so then I have this dream in which I have a building concept. Well, actually I have this building, and this is a building that is to be moved. And this building has four aspects that operate in this building. Now, where it’s at, two of the aspects have fallen away, and the one that I’m most familiar with isn’t working out anymore. And then there’s another aspect that I can relocate that is blasé.

However, the location is ideal. Where this building is at is in a town, lots of traffic, lots of people. You couldn’t expect a better environment of circumstances in terms of conceptualization, because you’ve got a great location there, you’re in a big town, there’s a lot of street traffic. Now all of a sudden I’m going to move this building. I’ve lost two of the businesses that are there, that had been there, are going to have to be replaced by two brand new things.

And the second thing is coming with me as I move this building to a much smaller town, and a much more isolated area, in which things are much quieter, and from a conceptual standpoint that seems to be a little bit ridiculous because when I look at the main business that I’m looking at operating, there’s no way that that can function very well. I mean, if it struggled where it had good street traffic, and was in a bigger city, and had a prime location, it’s certainly going to be hopeless where I’ve shifted the whole building to now.

But then the second part, that was part of this, reminds me that it can function here with very little inventory, almost invisibly. And that it has a dynamic that is brand new – and I get it. I look, I hear it, I get it. Yes, it will.

Now the nature of these components is they function in a way that most businesses don’t function. In other words, most businesses function in kind of an arm’s length capacity. In other words, you have a shoe shop, and it’s next to a hairdresser, it’s next to this, next to that. All of those are ubiquitous, distinct expressions. But the way these businesses function is they function a little bit like the voice, where they shuck and jive, and joke, and jab, and yet they’re still doing the same thing, but they’re doing it in a very intertwined, common, oneness kind of focus.

So the two new businesses that are going to be there, I am pondering how’s this going to work because they’re brand new, they’re young, they’re new, and in the shucking and jiving I have to take a step back because I don’t want to overwhelm them. I want them to establish their full footing in the shuck and jiving, so, in a sense, they have to have a certain advantage in order to do that, in order to find how they intertwine, and in that intertwining, make so much more.

Now the trigger to this whole thing is this unlimited capacity that can carry the day for all of this, which is when I make the move the part of myself that had been functioning and not working out in the other place, may not be working out as well in this place, but another part opens up – and that’s what makes something much more dynamic, and increases the potential umpteen fold. And so these other two things that intertwine, then, can ride naturally and gracefully in this.

And as they intertwine, of course, like I say, it’s an interesting kind of intertwining of a business model in that, to a person who isn’t observant, they appear to shuck and jive and carry on in a way that doesn’t make sense because, it’s kind of like where you see two married people and they’re quibbling back and forth, and then if you look closely you realize that that’s part of their dynamic. They’re not really quibbling. Don’t go thinking that you can mix yourself into something like that because they’ll both eat you alive. And yet this kind of dynamic is what, as an intertwining, as an unfoldment process, leads to a lot of magic. And that’s what this dream was like.

So the meaning is, I am intertwining in a more expansive inner way. The reason why I say it’s more expansive is because I’m including more, and I’m doing so with less outer contanglement. Contanglement means, you know, when you generally have a shop set up you have, okay, how’s this going to work? How are these things going to work together? And yet there’s no contanglement because they all jive together. They all kind of complement each other in an intertwining way – which is the greater imperative.

The inner approach has a more complete way about it that will be revealed in the fullness of time. In other words, this is what I have to see, too, because I’m really questioning the shift, and then I’m seeing that in the fullness of time I can feel it in my bones that this is better. So it’s going to take a while for me to catch up with this.

And in settling back is able to concentrate the inner over the outer, to a greater realization. I am given a gift in that in making the shift, even though I carry a lot of baggage that has been a steady problem in terms of my basic outer nature, a part that hadn’t been given a proper chance will now thrive in a more unlimited way with the shift. In other words, where one part is in the way, or a hindrance yet, another part is being accentuated within. Plus I can take on two new inner unfoldment approaches inside myself, and do so in a way that intertwines even more deeply.

What is going to surprise is that the competitive rivalry actually is an intertwined, underlying graciousness that touches people infectiously. Prior to this businesses operated in a more separate capacity. In other words, everything was in a more separate capacity, and the flow back and forth of a natural synergy wasn’t there because of the stifling sensation of things.

This approach has a vibrational magnetism that is infectious for all to experience, because when you experience it you get it, it touches you. I mean you have to laugh. It’s not what it appears. As I drop my conceptualization, and outer qualms, what rises up within is an incredible excitement.
