Posts Tagged ‘getting tangled in a dream’

mirror-mirrorIf we build a house, it will be a reflection of the way we think and feel about ourselves and the idea of “home.” In the same way, the clothes we wear are a reflection of the way we imagine ourselves and how we want to feel. What we see on the planet, its flora and fauna, and its ability to support human life, is a reflection of its internal energies. It is a wise person that learns to read what outer reflections tell us about what is happening energetically. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So the way my dream worked, the sleep dream that is, is it starts off where there is this like little person, extremely little, like five inches, one foot, a foot and a half, whatever, that just lays on my stomach – up by where the heart’s at, and lays on my stomach. You can cuddle it, you can cradle it, and you can disappear into it, and there’s something very inner and sweet about that.

It’s like an energetic, or something, because obviously you can’t have something like that actually, in a physical sense of it, and yet it has that whole sensation of such a closeness.

And then there is, in the outer, the idea of things that can be done, and that’s represented by being able to drag something to and fro, like a long hose. And in order to show that you’re making progress, in terms of going to and fro, back and forth and back and forth, the hose has marks on it, and so you line up a mark to a particular line, and then you turn around and you go back and you line it up, then. And, when you hit that, you go back and forth, and conceivably you’re gaining the measure of things by that approach.

Well, as you keep it up, it gets harder. It doesn’t get easier because there’s always a snag or this, that, or the other that seems to accumulate, in terms of the reflective is always building. It’s never simplifying. It’s always becoming more and more diverse. And, on each end, there is a man and a woman and, as far as I can tell, they seem to have to be helping me, supposedly helping me, and supposedly maybe even related in some sense in terms of this process.

Well, on one occasion, I get snagged and I have to go over things that have come up because the outer is continuously changing. And the woman realizes I’m in trouble and she comes and starts helping me, and because I’ve come up, and over, and around I have to come out of my entanglement so she pulls the hose a ways. And when I get to where I can look to see where my whereabouts is at I’m completely lost and confused. We’re off track, and yet she was the one that was supposed to have a sense at that end, in terms of how it lined up. Plus, this is starting to not make any sense, because if you’re going to and fro and you’re lining up to particular measurements, and all of a sudden I’m having to go up and up and around and about is obstacles ,this is getting very, very confusing. How can you have anything that is being simplified in this way?

And then I come to find out that the two are wanted by the law, and one of them is accused of espionage. And so this causes me to ponder the meaning of the term espionage and all of that. And so it’s like the scenario of going back and forth, to and fro, which is both exhausting and debilitating is an illusory reflective effect that kind of grabs your attention, and can predominate in a way, as if it’s possible to actually sort things out by contending with them. And that’s a confidence game. In the end this, as a process, is not acceptable, and the inner authorities have questions regarding espionage.

Espionage is the taking of an inner clarity and attempting to use it, to do things in the outer, that are designed to gauge and measure what is going on. It doesn’t work like that and, when this is revealed, what you come to know is that instead of things getting clearer, the whole outer thing is becoming more and more overwhelming. Or to put it bluntly, the longer you go with this as a primary frame of reference, the further you kind of get from making any real significant headway – as the beginning and the end just seem to stay out of sync with the inner flow; or things just seem to continue to continue in some sort of acting up way.

The point is this: true change comes from within as the heart of hearts embraces. In doing so, the vibrational nuances and image of a this or that, which is the outer – instead of you going back and forth in them – they get absorbed as the stillness essence prevails. Or, in other words, renders the reflections back to a stillness.

The idea that there is an outer part that is played independently, or has a component that can function in terms of looking at the reflection and trying to make the reflection change in that regard, is the wrong focus and attention. The focus and attention has to be to the stillness within.

So this was how I answered that question, and you answered it by trying to pretend that you could have it both ways, that you could take some of the outer along for the ride, too, but instead the outer, which is reflective, the reflective just stays as the reflective. It just reflects the transformation of an inner.

The outer is revealing. It reveals; it’s reflective, and it’s reflective of the inner. It’s not something that you go into the illusion, and then the illusion then takes you to something which is non-illusional. No; how can it do that?
