BN-BL359_0210ho_J_20140210112634The idea of “knowing your place” is usually a condescension, an insult. Yet we, in our lives, should know our place: our total connection to all that exists. To accept anything less is to cede the greatness of our possibility; we must inhabit the many floors of the house (of us), as shown in the dream image, and harness the power of the horses that are available when we are ready. This isn’t a movie script, this is a message from one part of a life to another part, to show what is possible. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In the next dream, you and I have gone to this university, and we’ve hurried to get to a class. It’s a really large classroom, some professors up there presenting. It’s not quite like the normal class that’s held in an auditorium. So it feels more like one of those classes they might have the first day of school, where they’re explaining something.

But, as we’re there, and as the professor’s up there, I realize we must have missed out on some point of the orientation because some things aren’t quite making sense. And we didn’t really go by the registrar office and do a lot of things, either. It’s like we just showed up at this class.

And I think, at some point, I even have a thought that maybe in the past, when I had been involved with the school before, I had even done something where I cheated on one of the tests and never told you, I don’t know, just a vague feeling I have. But I do know there’s information we don’t have. And so some things aren’t making complete sense.

Then when we leave the class, we’ve been in such a hurry to go to the class it’s like we’d put everything in the car and we’d showed up at the university. Well now I realize we don’t have a place to stay for the night. You’re looking at me like, okay, where are we going to stay? So now I’ve gotten in the car and I’m driving.

The town that we go into is a little bit like my hometown, and I remember, maybe from a previous dream, that there’s a section to the right where maybe we could go there and I knew someone that rented out rooms to university students, but I seem to feel like she only rents out to women. So, if we go to the left, I know there’s a series of houses there and some of the people have guest houses or other things and they rent out to students – and I’m pretty sure about that.

So you and I walk up to the door of this one house and a family that lives there. Well, they suddenly just sweep us in. And he has something to do with horses because there’s a corral in the back. He manages horses and people that go out on horse excursions for some wealthier person. But when he sweeps us into the house, the first thing we notice is that it’s like a two floor house, and he and his wife and a son, at least, live on the ground floor, and his mother and what feels like maybe either a couple of his daughters, or sisters, live upstairs. And they just sweep us in and show us right to a room, like, of course, we’ll stay there. We hardly seem to have much say in it.

We first sit in a little room, in fact, two little girls come to stand in the door and they’re staring at us; they want to see what we look like. I can tell that there’s an estrangement between the wife and the mother, because the mother stays mostly upstairs, because my wife finds her difficult to deal with. When I look out the window of the place and I see the horses, I realize we’ll probably be able to go on some horse rides.

And suddenly it’s morning. Then I seem to go in and I’ve gotten on a bed and I’m sitting and talking to the wife, because I can tell there’s a stress in the house with the mother there. That’s all I remember of that dream.

John: Well, this dream is like two dreams, in that you have the first part where there’s something that you have to do in terms of your overall presence in life. The way to look at this dream is to act like everything in life is like a shadow to you. And so you have to confront that in an honest, and straightforward, way; and you have to take it in. In other words, you don’t take it in as a sight, you take it in as something that you encompass.

So, when you go to the university, the immensity of the university, you have to take in that whole immensity. If you don’t take in that whole immensity, there is some aspect about you that is kind of lying, or is not telling the truth, in terms of what it is able to do.

Then the dream continues, to add more information, by indicating that part of taking on all that there is in the School of Life involves, then, you’ll have to do that. Because if you don’t do that, then you don’t know where your place is, because your place is in the wholeness, or in the overallness of life.

The feminine pretty much directs that sort of dissemination of a flow, because the masculine works with the principle more of trying to know where something is at, sight-wise, when the feminine is supposed to know naturally. So the feminine needs the power of something, though, in order to encompass, or to sweep in, in an overall sense, to keep from having heebie-jeebies, or whatever, in terms of the overallness, does not know that they have this immense responsibility.

So, to point that out, the feminine goes to this family that sweeps them in, meaning that they are meant to take in all of that, and that is your home. And, in this place, this place being a place in manifestation, in that is the power, represented by horses, for you to find the completeness and the wholeness. You’re doing this, not the masculine. You’re doing this because this is your role, this is your responsibility, this is what you have taken on.

Now, this is the nature of how the feminine principle is evolved in life, in that it is taking on roles and responsibilities. And as soon as it has taken them on, it can’t just throw them off. It can’t just go and say, Okay, I’m done with that. I’m not going to take that on anymore. It can’t. And so it has to kind of see it through. In other words, this is a higher octave of this kind of dreaming.

If you’re taking on a certain quality of how you’ll be in an orientation that is receptive to a type of atmosphere, called the university atmosphere, once you have put your attention in that, you have to take on that whole thing. Once you decide that the way to travel, or to go, is in such in such a way- in terms of a home and such – you can’t then ignore that as a calling, or a responsibility.

Now some could call this dharma; some could call it karma. But the general way of looking at this is to realize that wherever you place your attention, you now have invoked a responsibility. Now, if you don’t place your attention out into many things, only into a few things, even then whatever that might be, your responsibility is engaged. Wherever you look, you have a responsibility. It’s just the nature of the human being, because a human being is a Crown of Creation in which, how they see things, what they see, how the world is as an effect upon a sense of themselves. And they have a sense that is as big as the universe.

Wherever that gets directed, that then becomes something that you have to contend with. For example, you have the responsibility, in your dream, over the university atmosphere. You have the responsibility, in your dream, over the place where we stay. You have the responsibility in that place, where you stay, to catch up with the power of that place. That’s the quality of the feminine principle in manifestation.

iesIf you’ve ever tried to drive with a full cup of coffee you will understand this dream, because, when you try to do that, you suddenly become aware of a hundred bumps on the road that you were never aware existed. For the purposes of the dream, the dreamer is trying to keep an innerness intact, but everything around it, front and back, is trying to disrupt that inner state, all while the inner state is trying to impose itself on the outer situations. This is the struggle of trying to bring our inner life into the everyday of what we do. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: My earliest dreams seemed to be more about almost like just forms, and it was like they come together and they shift. I can’t remember that much more about them. It wasn’t like anything was happening as far as people. It just was forms and shifting.

In the second dream, it’s like I’m looking for someone, and I go into an old theater building. I have to go down into the basement and through this kind of maze of rooms, and then I keep going past people but I can’t find the person that I want. I come out the other side, and I decide I have to go over to the next town.

And so I hitch up a horse to a wagon, a horse and a buggy kind of arrangement, and I head over there. And I have somebody else with me now, but then I get distracted, or not distracted, I’m going there, but there’s a man that is behind me that’s trying to pass me, also with a horse and buggy, but he’s trying to make his horse go too fast, and is kind of in that sense abusing the horse.

So I’m trying to get my wagon to block that so that he can’t go so fast that he wears out his horse, or abuses it. And then there’s another horse and buggy that comes in front of me which means I have to slow down a bit, too. That’s okay because I’m trying to get the guy behind me to slow down and even to get him to stop and ride with us, or go at a different pace, because his pace is way off in terms of how he’s pushing the horse. That’s all I remember. It was just a night when the dreams were kind of jumbled.

John: The theme of the dreaming had to do with being able to pull and integrate into a wholeness, into a oneness, all aspects of inner into outer, and the outer effect being recognized as a quality coming from an innerness.

And when you were like looking at that, or contending with that, or in the swirl of something like that not having pulled it through with a clear-cut understanding of where this was all at, what it all meant because you were, in terms of the fact that to properly do this you have to let go of everything, and you weren’t able to let go of everything, because you were affected by the horse, meaning a sense of power in the buggy or whatever, you know one behind going at a peculiar pace, one in front going at a faster pace, you in the middle. In other words, whatever all that dynamic was, and how you were having to cope and relate back and forth to the tug-o-war of something like that, you were not sorting out what that really meant. However, it is better, that’s a better image than sitting completely in an amnesia as if there’s nothing going on.

That image of being kind of in-between things, and frustrated by being in-between things, and it’s almost as if when you’re in that it’s a frustration that seems to have an outer vibrational effect because the buggy in the front’s not acting right in relationship to the buggy in the back.

Take that image, add this following image to it. Let’s say you have a house, and the house has an outer area that is exposed to the public. In other words, it’s what the public can see. The public can’t see the inner sanctums of the house.

So if you have a family in the house that’s protected because something sits in this outer area and is able to contend with the forces of things in this zone in the outer part of the house, and is able to somehow or another sustain its ability to do that, that means that on the deepest of the inner levels everything can appear to be okay.

But what if that outer level gets broken into from the collective on the outer, of which something can be sitting in that outer room that is all properly barricaded and whatnot, and protected, so that the innerness is secluded from it from happening?

See, you with the carriage with something in the back and something in the front, you are in that outer room. Now if the outer room breaks down… First of all, what is this outer room? What is this carriage that is caught by something in the front and something in the back? Essentially this is a zone that you could describe as a place where the dynamic is being played out between the forces of vibration and energy that have penetrated the lower levels of the inner plane, in other words, because you can have a place of a greater quietness.

Now what’s happening, the mistake that’s being made in consciousness, is that a person can go into this place, can be really soothed in this place, and can thereby pull themselves into this greater level or degree of isolation, or a greater inner level. Yet you’re still going to have this outer level, of which there’s an innerness having penetrated it, that is able to keep things hidden. If it’s effective enough it can keep things hidden. So you can have the buggy that’s not right in the front, and you’ve got something pushing from the back, and sitting in between you have an energetic that holds the line.

These shapes all have to come together, and so you have that as your schematic, and then you go into a dream in which what you have as a consequence is this area in-between in which there is a dynamic going on so that the buggy in the front and the buggy in the back, there’s kind of a veiling as a result of the buggy in the middle.

So this leads to a confusion. See, where your dream left off is you saw what it’s like to be in this in-between, but your image wasn’t enough to show that this in-between is a lot like an extension to a house, an extension that is out there in which if anything goes on it goes on against this extension, this kind of zone, and that on the inner of that even is a quietness, is a peace.

6-3Discovering uncharted territories is a passionate pursuit for humans: the New World, the  depths of the ocean, outer space. It is natural for us to want to claim new space. But what if that inclination in us is really built into our design so that we can bring consciousness to what is unconscious? Created so we could discover what is on the inside? Because when we shine the light of our attention into new places, so much more becomes possible – particularly for our journey. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in the dream, I am inclined to believe that I may be doing something wrong when I lose myself like that, but then of course when you wake up you realize, oh my goodness, it’s amazing what’s going on here. Because the dream is pointing out that in the emptiness, and stillness, and a letting go, I’m able to access within a place therein that I am able to merge into, and merge with.

In other words, it’s not like it’s separate, it’s part of me. It comes out and it automatically sweeps everything into it. And this is a merging into a wholeness that energetically permeates all of life, and it permeates it from the inner level.

That is why you don’t try to control, or regulate, the light because it’s controlling things from the inner level and you in the outer then would be imposing controls that prevent this from permeating. So the idea of it being a problem, in other words, the fact that it sweeps over everything like it does is just a pun, because when you settle back you see that there’s a wonderful result in being able to take in a flow, through one’s self, that is connected inner and outer, and outer and inner; it flows.

So that’s the meditation dream; so that has to be broken down. And so, in my dream, I proceed, or take you, to a past in which I had lived which is in Hungry Horse. And we go to Hungry Horse to where there is a river that flows through the area, and the river is at the lowest level I’ve ever seen, so low that I am able to cross the river to the other side, which is something I have never done before.

When I was a kid there I never did this. There are others there that give you concern, just seeing them. It’s just they were hooligans or something, but I know everything is okay. In other words, they’re kind of trying to like maybe keep this place to themselves and, once one gets over that little trepidation, as you look you’re amazed at the trail system that exists – that I didn’t know was there – because I’d always assumed that this is a pristine area, which is what it was when I grew up, unexplored, and it’s natural beauty had been untouched by man.

So we come to a place where there are kids in a small pool that looks wonderful. I ask if it’s a hot spring. They say that the water is only about 50 degrees, in other words, just barely survivable in a situation in which outside it’s still snowy and could still be part of a melt going on. It could be very cold.

So I go and check it out. It is fine. They’re bullshitting. It’s comfortable, but not hot, but the pool is small and probably too small for you and I. So we keep exploring, and I seem to separate from you and come to a place where there is another hot springs that is much hotter, and that’s kind of even enclosed a little bit, and when I go inside young people again, not old people. We’re the geezers over in this area.

When I go inside, the kids that are here are kind of drunk in what they’re taking in. You find the place. You come looking for me. You find the place and, as you look in, you come across as like an official authority the kids have to follow. And you say that the cans, the beer cans, got to go. And, of course, I know that they think you’re an authority figure, but I know that it’s not quite what it appears. And so I just get off and we start walking away – so the old geezer amongst these youngsters is leaving.

Suddenly, off to one side, I see like a natural slide that goes from this hot springs and, in the far distance along this slide, it comes to another hot water pool that is connected to the river below, and that’s where the old geezers are at. And so I say, “Why isn’t anyone taking in this natural water slide?” And they tell me that it is too hot.

I joke with them that it is probably fine. I have no proof of that, I just suddenly seem to think that maybe they’re kind of misguided or something. So, I have to check it out. So I get into the slide at the top and find the water to be wonderful. It’s not too hot and, in the far distance at the other end, I see people – that’s where the grownups are at, and they’re swimming around.

So it appears to me that if it’s okay at the top, and the water flows down and goes into that, it should be fine all the way. It can’t be like they are imagining. Just as a last precaution I decide to go over, you and I we’re going to go over, just to make sure it is okay.

So when we get over to where the area is approximately at, to my surprise, as a last step, suddenly we have to take a man-made elevator up to the top of a tree and proceed across from there.

I took you into a past in which there is a lot of power, but when I grew up there the power was deprived. That’s Hungry Horse, horse is power. This power place had been like a hungry ghost unable to get out from its shadow. This time something is different. A roaring river that separated the area I grew up in from inaccessible pristineness on the other side is now accessible. So now that we’re able to cross over to an area no one when I was kid had ever gone, I find it has become discovered by kids and is a wonderful place to explore. In other words, what I’m seeing is not what I had expected to find on the other side.

So then as I explore further I find a hot springs, I realize that this hot springs is connected to a kind of a waterslide, and it is from there that I can see that this natural slide goes a long ways to where it reaches a river way below, and this waterslide connects, in other words, from a youthful innocence of an energetic to the adults in the pool of their own.

So to get there the last step is we need to take an elevator up a Tree of Life and, from there, cross into this zone.

So the meaning is the dream is portraying how much I have grown consciously, in that I have come to access a dormant inner power within that was limited in what it could do long ago, but is now able to cross, in other words, to take this growth and go over into a pristine realm, or the other side.

In this area things are wonderfully different, although at first glance that isn’t apparent to the feminine side of myself, because it’s new and so you have your preponderances. That part is naturally fearful because this is an area of unknown.

Not only do I find an abundance of inner into outer hot springs that no one in the past was aware existed here, I discover that the innocent young people who are the first to find this place are kind of keeping it to themselves, so it remains yet in a kind of unconsciousness. Adults are too prudish or fearful or quick to dismiss to be able to know that there is something more. The energy consciousness of an inner youthful innocence likes it that way, and is inclined to keep it hidden from old souls. But you and I have taken steps in which we are no longer deluded, or fooled. In the end I am able to close the gap between young and old, and am able to handle the waters between the two zones; in other words, to make the linkage.

The way this fits with the meditation dream is that a greater mergable consciousness is now possible in that the time has come for assumptions about this being a no-go zone to fall away. In falling away life in terms of access and appreciation of what had been inaccessible inner levels unfold. Wrongful, or false assumptions, when they fall away, reveal a powerful inner flow, and there’s power behind that that connects old with new, or maybe you’d say new with old, and unconscious with conscious, or conscious with unconscious, depending again how you want to flip that, upon the other side inner level of my beingness.

Until it became possible to access this inner pristine place I was not aware that, on this other side, so much there needed to be opened up there again in order to realize, recognize, and appreciate how connected, how new connected to old, how above touched below, how consciousness affected unconsciousness, and that in general that on this other side the means existed for a greater fullness of consciousness to rise up anew.
