tha00Everything we see in the universe is constantly trying to improve, and to refine, according to its design possibility. For example, a bird will keep trying to build a better nest, adapting to environmental circumstances. And a neuron will always try to respond more quickly, firing off faster than the last time. Incrementally, everything refines in this way. The human also plays a role in the refinement of the universe, by trying to energetically improve what it comes in contact with (this service is a choice for the human). In return for this service, the universe refines the human individually, and, over time, the species.

Jeane: Well, I feel like, again, I had a long dream with parts of it repeating. This time I was able to pull out just the end of it. And at the end of this dream, I seem to be studying this little pattern in the ground. And it’s a pattern formed by some bones. And it’s like if I can solve this pattern, I can solve a crime.

And the bones are associated also with a horse that I ride, it’s this big dapple gray horse. As I come back and forth on this ranch, and I kept studying the pattern, it’s like nobody can really figure out what the pattern of this bone means. So it feels like the crime is going to go unsolved.

And then one time I come back and my horse isn’t there, and then people come riding into the ranch on the horses. And the foreman of the ranch had given my horse to this other woman to ride, and I’m just furious because, for one thing, they’ve overridden the horse. For another thing, other people really aren’t supposed to ride that horse, let alone not treat it well. And I recognize the foreman’s up to something.

Not that you can prove anything, but I get so mad I tell them that if that ever happens again, I’ll not only take my horse, also my third to the ranch to some outside interest, I’m just really furious. And I’ve taken the horse aside to groom him because it’s been overworked.

And then I’m studying the pattern of those bones on the ground again, trying to figure them out. It’s like I think the horse has some clue to them, but of course the horse can’t talk. And now it feels like I’m up against the foreman of the ranch, in some ways, but I’m still trying to figure out what happened. Anyway, I get so frustrated, I wake up.

John: So what you’re talking about, the theme of the dreaming, is what enables one to understand what this means. And the theme of the dreaming has to do with a process that works with mirroring the stillness.

In other words, you don’t just go into a stillness and leave everything behind. You go into a stillness for purposes of creating a mirroring in the outer. That’s how you bring the stillness back into the outer. In other words, you don’t take and get engaged in some bifurcation or another in the outer, as something that is real. You don’t go deviating into that and trying to make something out of it – unless you’re capable of using yourself as an example to create the mirroring to something more.

That’s why I believe that a lot of conduct that a teacher does is about where they take and they act this way and they act that way, none of it is done in a seriousness where they’re bifurcated and actually vested in that sort of thing. Just like when you look at it this way, when you’re looking at things like this, can you pull that out? Or are you to buy into it?

So if you have students who are all caught in their own things, and they’re going back and forth with their own things, and you’re trying to get them to see that there’s something more by all these different practices that you have, that enable them to kind of let go of that and inflect back to the stillness, the fact that you see them caught up in this and caught up in that, one of the ways in which to help the student is to be able to take on whatever it is as their deviations, to absorb the deviations, so to speak, to free them up so that they can experience the stillness.

That’s a step in the path. Now if you don’t know how to do that particular step on the path where you can actually take on an individual’s karma, so to speak, where you can take it into yourself and then feed it back to them, if you’re not able to do that, then there is another way. And that way is where you take and you create a side schematic and you go and you play act in that side schematic in full drama way, as if that’s important. And you have to sell that lock, stock, and barrel as a parallel, as a tandem, to what the student is actually doing in all of their bifurcated ways. You have to sell this bifurcated way that is something that is like a good intent portentiousness from the teacher. You have to sell it in such a way so that it really does look like that’s what it is.

But you, as the teacher, hold a space of stillness, so that as this other occurs, the student catches up with the stillness and not the abstraction. If they catch up with the abstraction and get all lost and mired in that, then what can be done? I mean, they were getting lost and mired in their own bifurcations, anyway, and this is a manufactured bifurcation, a Layla sort of thing, that is there for them to progress.

The reason why I say this is, this is what you did in your dream. So what you did is you had a horse, which meant that you took and you rode an action of power in and over a schematic in the outer. And, in doing so, you observed, you looked down upon the way the bones of things were laid out. You didn’t necessarily buy into the bones of things, you just looked at the bones.

And what made you mad was, instead of getting it, they tried to jump the power point that had to do with the ability that you had to take, and show, and reveal, and cause them to look at the bones of things. In other words, one of the steps in the path, or a big step in the path, is to get into the stillness. And you get into the stillness by catching up with the full kundalini energy. And you get into the full kundalini energy on the other side, as well as on this side.

And when you have the full kundalini energy taken in to yourself, you then are able to go out in the midst of the bones, the bones in this case are the symbolic that represents the way everything is all this way and that way. And how it is that you move about in relationship to that is as a type of mirroring, that what feeds back from that is what others can come to recognize in terms of catching up and taking a step inside of themselves; important motion, or movement, inside of themselves that brings them forward.

So, the misuse of kundalini energy, of which one-third is on this side and two-thirds are on the other side, is when a person takes and gets caught up in things in the outer. If a person takes and gets caught up with things in the outer, and fails to see what that mirrors, that the outer is a mirroring to a stillness that’s within, to where the kundalini energy is in this whole different modality, and in the outer it is askew and astir. If a person is not able to recognize that and instead has to buy into the power, which means ride the horse, your threat is, okay, then to hell with you – because that isn’t what the outer is about.

See what you’re dreaming also is a schematic, is that you’re traveling in the principle of what’s called “in God,” so that what reflects out of you, in terms of the things that you may see yourself doing, you are just doing those things, you’re not doing those things from the standpoint that you buy into them, lock, stock, and barrel, and, therefore, have to go backwards inside of yourself to free yourself up, meaning that you have to step away from those things, and use those things symbolically to understand that there’s a depth of stillness behind all of this. That the understanding of a dream, and of those actions, per se, has to do with going backwards into the stillness.

Now, this is a dream, which is saying that the actions and the conduct that you’re doing is just abstractive. It’s not something that you are caught up in; you are able to ride the power wave of the kundalini energy, in the outer, in front of all the bones of things. And anyone who understands who you really are is to see the stillness, in that, that you mirror. You’re doing it for purposes of mirroring, reflectively mirroring. You catch up with the stillness and then you bring it back into life by going into things, whatever you go into in the outer, but you go into them not because it’s something that have to do, or need to do, or caught up in having to do, you go into them because you just happen to go into them. And, as you go into them, you are in a whole other space and depth inside of yourself.

So you mirror from whatever it is that you go into – something of a divine letting go, something of the stillness – for those who are ready to see this in a revelational way. If they don’t see it in a revelational way, and they instead seem to look at what you’re doing and seem to think that they need to get even more caught up in that, then they’re violating, then they’re misusing that magnetic one-third of the kundalini energy that’s in life.

And so, your point is, if that’s all that a person is capable of doing, if no one’s able to get the inner hint to the stillness, then you’re going to sell the darn place, which is a way of saying you’re going to leave Dodge. You’re going to go away from manifestation. Now you’re never really going to do this. Instead, you are going to be doing whatever you’re doing in the outer, and for those who can see they can see, for those that can’t see, then something gets lost. In other words, the whole principle of manifestation is for God to be able to see and hear Himself.

king-adSometimes, as we near the very thing we want, we can then feel the greatest urge to run away. Because what we are heading for has power in it, and, as we get closer to the power, we begin to see and understand what that power will require of us, and what we will have to give up, and what we will have to do, and how we will have to be, to hold on to such power. Ultimately, if we stay with it, it will be the best trade-off imaginable – the best deal in the universe, in fact – yet we will still experience fear as we let go to it more and more. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In the dream that I remember, I seem like I’m in my 20s or something, and I’m traveling with a troop of people that travel by horseback and with tents. It’s like there’s a king or someone who’s in charge, and I share a tent, but sleeping on separate cots with a woman and another man who, it feels like there’s something they want from me, but as long as I can kind of sleep in my separate cot, and a I have a certain protection from the king, it’s like they can’t take it yet.

So I’m always kind of on the lookout because as long as I can kind of keep that little bit of distance it feels like whatever I have is more protected. And I did have at least one special horse also, and it’s like the king needs me in whatever conflict it is that he has going on so, I have a certain amount of protection although I have to be really careful to make sure they don’t try to creep into my bed at night, or something, because there’s something that they want to steal.

And then it feels like after some significant battle, where everything is a little more relaxed, I have this feeling that, you know, in this more relaxed state like the king might kind of back off, and maybe whatever they want to do that they might get away with it.

So I manage to sneak off. I go down a trail that they don’t notice. It’s more deserted, and not many people traveling on it, but in order to really get away so that they don’t notice, it’s like I have to leave my favorite horse behind.

And there’s another horse that I take, that I travel with, and after going on this kind of odd, more deserted trail, then I also go down a different direction, and I have something with me that seems to mow; I pretend almost like I’m mowing a trail with some kind of a mower but, of course, I’m not really mowing the way you would if you were clearing a whole trail. I’m just doing one single patch down to get as far as I can from where they are so I can make a getaway.

The only thing I’m sad about is it feels like I have to leave the horse that I would usually ride behind because, if I had taken that horse, they would have noticed me. So I have another horse, or another vehicle with me, to make my getaway. That’s all I really remember of the dreaming.

John: Well, the setting you’re in is a setting that, if you were able to truly accept it, and see it for all that it is, is a setting in which there’s a wholeness. In other words, you’re traveling under the sphere of power, under the protection of power. And power is energy, and energy is light, and light is clarity. And you have the auspices that come from the top down.

In other words, the whole caravan of things, the whole movement, the whole action is under the guidance of the king. However, for whatever particular reason, there is something about you that doesn’t quite get the significance of the spatiality that you’re in. And you feel that you have some personal prerogatives that you can turn to, that you can place at your disposal, and, when you do that, you break the overallness that you’re in – which is easy to do because you’re not truly getting it.

In other words, you have little aspects that are still rising up inside of you to give you an opinion about this, and an opinion about that. So you’re not really realizing the fullness, or the wholeness, or the oneness. And so, to the degree that you go out and try to create your own thread, or make your own path, you give up on power.

You lose the pristine fine line of the connection, which is represented by your special horse, and you have to go off in ways that still have a certain power to them, but they’re of a more limited, personal, and designed capacity. And that sort of thing keeps you in an amnesia, or distant, from how it is that you could be.

In other words, it’s like the position you’re in, in the setting of the dream, has a potentiality about it – if you could let go and just fully take it in, knowing that you are part of all of that in every aspect and regard and, therefore, the aliveness, the action of that, is complete in and of itself. If you were able to truly note that as your beingness, that is connected to an inner knowingness, and therefore you are okay with the exclusive oneness and overallness, everything would be fine.

But for whatever reason that memo isn’t quite all there, isn’t loud enough, and so you go off on your own and create veils as you follow your own personal prerogative. But,,, there’s still the thread of a horse in that sense and there’s always the possibility of backtracking your steps because you are making an extension, or a spoke, that extends off. And so it’s not like you can really get away. You’re just extending outwardly, which is not like you can actually really get away.

In other words, you could backtrack that spoke to where you come to know the true inner action of your beingness, and/or it’s like something could happen yet to where it could still stalk, or haunt, you because it’s not like you have your favorite horse. You’ve left the favorite horse back there, so it’s not like what you have can actually go very far, or go very fast.

im0We’ve spoken in recent posts about the nature of a saint (a person with spiritual attainment). But it doesn’t have to look holy, in fact the only way to get real spiritual development is to go through the difficulties of life buoyed by the strength of your higher purpose. In this dream we see exactly that: there’s no road to get where the dreamer needs to go, and what needs to happen seems impossible, even crazy. Yet, the dreamer trusts in her guidance and everything works out well, even magically. That’s what becomes possible when we realize and accept that something else is in charge. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well, as the dream continues, it shifts a little. I’m in a car now, and I’ve made up the trunk of the car into a really comfortable bed that my dad can ride in. And I have at least one man and somebody else in the rest of the car with me.

And I’m trying to get somewhere now. It feels less like being chased and that I just have to get somewhere. Well I’ve driven the car and gotten up on this part of a mountain. It’s not all the way up the mountain. It’s partway up a mountain, and I’m not sure how I got there because there doesn’t seem to be a road.

Because there’s no road, then I look around and I see where the road is, but I suddenly realize that there’s no actual road between me and where the road is so, what I’m going to have to do is go off the side; it’s like where the road is across a gap from where I am, and in that gap you’d have to take the car just down the mountain, with no road, and some water has gone through and I see where some of the area can be muddy or it’s pooled. There’s a wild horse down there. I think it’s a white horse.

There may be even a place where the car would have to kind of leap across a chasm, and then when you go across you could either plow into a side that’s all muddy, or there’s a muddy track that goes up to the left a bit that you could get stuck in – but might work. And so I’ve just launched off because I can see on the other side of that is the road I need to go the rest of the way up the mountain.

So I’ve launched off. There’s this wild ride down that kind of leaps across the chasm. I see I could plow into the side, but I manage to turn and find this little track. It doesn’t get stuck in the mud. Then, finally, it comes to rest not far from the road. I mean like I can get on the road now. And I realize as crazy and insane as all that was, that I kind of like it that way.

John: Where was your dad? Always in the trunk?

Jeane: Yeah, he’s in the trunk – in a comfortable bed.

John: So the second half actually contends with a getting it, in terms of not getting lost in a type of spiritual illusion. In other words, the spiritual illusion would have been the going up the mountain, meaning the recognition of something that veils you out, which is like an aspect of the masculine, that can have an insight of bringing something through – but there’s still work to be done in terms of fully grounding what needs to be grounded.

And you’re far enough along in the dreaming process of the understanding of how this flows, and unfolds, to where you could have steered the dream, almost steered the dream, and that’s why it’s good sometimes once dreams are really amnesic, yet you could’ve steered the dream into kind of a spiritual direction, or the seeming spiritual direction.

But what ended up happening is you realized that you still have to contend with things that are a little mucky, and sloppy, and whatnot. You still have to contend with whatever the dynamic is that has a type of flow that’s in life, that isn’t defined in terms of where the road is, or the path is, still has a quality of bewilderment, or price of admission. And, when you go through that, you just suddenly find yourself where you need to be – as opposed to try to struggle so hard to get there.

In other words, you do the opposite of what your mind would have had you doing, which would have been to try to continue to go up the road. You recognize that you have to step back and go down, and up, and around, and through the much and such. And what you’re describing there, what you’re describing there is you’re not buying into a certain aspect of masculine projection, either, because the masculine projection would always have you trying to reach to something of more of control or power.

And you are in manifestation, and you’re responsible for that, and you accept that, and you go into that, and you hold your role in that, and you go through that, and as you go through that you reach the other – and you’d have it no other way.

That’s the contending with the price of admission of things in the outer. You’re not suddenly saying, okay, enough is enough, and then you take and make this about face. Yes, you had kind of the shadow of the dog, of the friend, looking out for things quietly, and silently. You weren’t’ inclined to realize just how important that company was.

And, yes, you got to a particular point where you started to recognize how you could find an inner guidance inside, but you didn’t get carried away with that. You didn’t go to a great extreme in that because you realized that you didn’t have enough of a connection with that to trust it, to be able to follow it. You still are in a daze and still have to pay the price of admission. You still have to relate to how things are in the outer.

In other words, the father of things is still in the trunk, asleep. You could have tried to wake, or resurrect, or contend with that other, reach to the other, but you didn’t do that. Had you done that, you would have on one level thought that you were speeding yourself up, but on another level, only later after the fact would you have come to realize that you had actually just slowed yourself down. In other words, the concept would have been deceiving.

By going down the hill and through the muck and this, that, and the other, where no trail exists you reach the road – and who would’ve guessed? And you would prefer doing it that way because why? Because that’s the way that it has to be done. That’s the way that you know that it has to be done in order to hold something in terms of the overall. That’s an interesting way of approaching it.
