cosmos_2014_by_redxen-d7498s7In this short image, a huge concept is raised: If, after this human experience, we die and return to the source of our arising, have we been of benefit to God and creation? If we look at the natural worlds, everything plays its role in the process of the whole. But we have freedom of choice, so we have to choose to play the role we have been designed for. Just shopping and procreating isn’t a fulfillment of our human purpose, we need to be in service to the whole in whatever way we can, according to our uniqueness. And doing that requires a greater consciousness. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So I had this other little dream where I’m looking for somebody, and I ask the sister or something or whatever, where is he at? And I’m told, “Oh, he’s gone home.”

Now I’m supposed to naturally know what home is for him because home is the same for all of us. It’s back into the essence.

When someone says they’ve gone home, and they’re talking to someone, there seems to be a natural language that everyone knows what home is. And I’m out and about, and when he’s gone home it’s not like one goes to where his home is at to relate to him, because you relate to things in the flux and in the flow of what is going on.

And when a person goes home they’re in a state of rest. And when they’re out and about they’re in a state of flux. Or, in that state in which the inner and the outer have an aliveness and a language of the soul and everything communicating.

So it’s an interesting image. Yes, there’s a certain relief to the idea of being able to go home, but then again that’s a fairly dormant perspective. I wouldn’t be asking the question if I wasn’t of a motif of wanting to do something, or being fluid and in a flow.

And when a person has gone home, they’ve gone to a point like where the drop goes into the ocean. And so it creates this image that a person always kind of has this choice where you can go home, but then what does that do for creation? And creation is helped by being able to hold “the soldier between two worlds” place. It’s a very interesting, odd, peculiar image.

There was nothing wrong with the fact that the person had gone home. It’s just that, I don’t go home. I’m not going to go visit him at his home, even though I kind of know where it’s at. I guess I’m supposed to because the sister, when she says that, does not explain where home is. So obviously I must know where home is at, but that isn’t my frame of reference.

The_key_to_happiness_by_kuschelirmelSpiritual development requires letting go of the way we identify personally with the events in our lives, which means we have to give up our hope of controlling events around us. We can move in that direction by holding an inner space within us, connected to our awareness of the overall. In doing this, we can be guided by the grace of something greater, rather than struggling to do everything on our own. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In this dream, it feels like not so very long ago, but long enough that I’ve adjusted, that maybe I’ve separated from a relationship. I have a cousin or a girlfriend who has come over to visit me, and she also seems to have separated, but more recently, so she’s still a little in that kind of stage you’re in when it’s a recent separation.

When it’s time for her to leave, I drive her home, and even though this is a cousin actually on my dad’s side of the family, she’s living in my mother’s mother’s home. I go in the house with her and she’s staying there, and it feels like a girlfriend of mine from childhood is staying there too.

And then a man comes over, who is recently separated from a relationship, and the three of them are talking but, because it’s late at night, I’m actually kind of tired so I have kind of laid down with my head on the table to rest awhile before I drive home, listening to the conversation.

I know there are some things that I could even add or counsel them because I’ve been separated longer than they are, and also having been a therapist I kind of know some of the stages people go through, but I just keep my mouth shut and listen.

At one point even a girl comes to the back door, a young woman. She must not be appropriately dressed because she comes to see the guy, or talk to him, or maybe she just is looking for something, I don’t know. He goes to talk to her for a minute and it seems like when I look at this gal it’s almost like a comic book in that maybe because she’s so skimpily dressed that they’ve censored it, you know, like there’s a band across maybe where her eyes are, and there’s another band across maybe where her top was because she wasn’t wearing much.

Whatever she is wearing is black, and I figure that’s just part of the adjustment the guy is going through right now. He talks to her for a few minutes. Then I decide that it’s time for me to go home.

Well, when it’s time for me to leave, no one walks me out to the car, and it’s gotten really dark out. So as I walk out to the car, suddenly I’m having a little bit of trepidation because I’ve shut the door behind me and I can’t remember if I have a key to my car.

Then I decide my key is in my pocket, but then what if I didn’t lock my car and someone has gotten in it? I just suddenly am having that trepidation, and I wished they would have walked me to my car because it’s so dark out and I think that’s when I wake up.

John: Your dream is about this idea or process, that one has to have, of a kind of stability. And so you’re shown, or required I should say, to have to compare that which is able to be in sync with a stable old change that you’ve learned to abide by, which has grounded you and rooted you in a kind of balanced overall. Versus that which is volatile in nature, which is ungrounded and therefore lacks a certain kind of energetic prudence.

And the nature of that which is recent, meaning causing you to go through reactions based upon something that has become used to a habitual past, is that you are finding yourself having to act more out of holding on to habits than you would be reacting if you had learned to carry the conditions as they change.

And so the dream is a dream that’s trying to show you how to understand, for yourself, the importance of maintaining an overall presence that supersedes the comfortabilities of the control on the day-to-day level.

In other words, you are being required to feel the difference of how you can have the day-to-day variabilities, which can cause your attention to lurch forward into this day-to-day variabilities, and you’re comparing that, on an energetic level, with what it’s like to have the stability that comes with a long-term, overall rootedness, which has become natural and accepting and has found the space of balance over time because it has given itself permission to take on a Wholeness as opposed to a reactionariness.

You’re feeling all of that, and of course you’re putting this into the context of something in which some part of you is saying to yourself that you know that whatever one does in the short-term is disturbing.

Then the dream progresses, because you’re all parts of the dream, and so you then become a person who has been affected, and been in a household or in an environment, in which you’ve been hit by, or affected and impacted by, the herky-jerkiness of habitual energy that is trapped and caught in its nuances. In other words, that doesn’t have a sense of overall presence and balance.

And what that does is, that creates a shorting out so that you lose your sensibilities. You lose the sensibilities at the time that you’re in such a house, and the disturbance that that creates continues, so that when you go outside of the house, or basically when you then have to function in the overall with the presence, you can find yourself disoriented too.

And this is a tricky dream because on one level it shows the importance of the presence in terms of maintaining a Wholeness of yourself, and on the other level it shows the importance of, well, it shows that you actually lose the key to your own being – if you don’t hold a space.

And of course you leave that space and try to go outside, instead of being able to hold the space, and balance that space out – inside the house. So then when you go outside, and because you have given up on the idea of holding the space because you have a sense and you know that this has got to end badly for people that don’t know how to settle back and allow things to adjust, so when you then go outside, which means it’s your way of moving away from something like that, your key to understanding and holding a benefit for the Whole was in staying in the house, when you go outside to try to get in the car, or to distance yourself from something that’s awkward and imbalanced, you can’t find the key.

You find the key by being able to contend with what’s thrown in your face, because in the dream you’re also the part that has the rootedness, the understanding of the presence, that’s longstanding. And you know that about yourself, but you also then have the parts of you that are reactionary to something that changes, and affects it, which creates an immediate disturbance because it causes you to lose a connection, or threatens you in terms of losing a connection to that which has the grounded, rooted composure.

And so if you fight to maintain the composure, and move away from something like that, or find yourself leaving and feeling glad and free that you’re able to leave that sort of thing, as if it’s going to be better, that sort of abandonment, without you having absorbed it, and taken it in, and solidified it, because you do have the deeper center inside of you that can do that, will leave you disconnected.

In other words, mentally speaking, the idea of pulling out of a confusion and away from a confusion tends to make sense, rationally speaking, but energetically speaking, it causes you to remain lost, or to get further lost, because you’re abandoning some part of yourself that you’re meant to be able to take in and contend with, because you have – deep, back, in a depth of yourself – you have the understanding and the abilities to hold that as part of an overallness, with a respect, and a grounding that you know you can trust, that has run the test of time.

But in the dream you’re seeing the foibles of things that are short-term. You’re feeling the long-term effect. You required to take and hold that. You’re given that choice.

When you take and inadvertently think that you can move away from the other, because you know that that can’t end well. In other words, you have your understanding in terms of relationships that are freshly wounded, that they tend to gravitate to woundology decisions, as opposed to grounded decisions, and so you come to the conclusion that you don’t need to go through that, you don’t need to contend with that.

But the dream scenario is a scenario in which you carry a soundness that you’re refusing to apply, and so when you refuse to apply the soundness to the need of the situation, and you move away from it instead of being there for it, you yourself then lose what you had. You lose your key. You too become, then, scattered and confused, because you failed to meet the challenge.

It’s interesting, all the current cultural obsession with zombies and vampires, i.e., human beings interacting with the undead. In a spiritual journey, it can seem just such a battle between fostering our own inner light, and being drawn in, or seduced, by all the aspects of the culture that have no light in them, which can keep us from fulfilling our human purpose.

Jeane’s dream has this epic battle: zombies, aliens, a flood, and a wedding. What does it all mean? John explains. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Near the tail end of one dream that I’ve kind of forgotten, I go to check into a hotel and I need to get a room, and I have to phone you. But it feels like I can’t get a room because you’re going to be joining me at some point in the future, I think on the third of a certain month, and we’re not married so… I think that’s the scenario, something like that anyway.

You tell me to go ahead and have the woman at the hotel arrange for us to get married. I’m not too worried about it because it feels like it’s just a civil ceremony or something they’ll do right there at the hotel. I even go around the counter and there’s a big window display there and it has some rings in it. I think it has a ruby ring or something, so you just tell me to go ahead and get that, and charge it to your card and have her set up the whole thing for the third or whenever it is you’re coming into town. I tell her all of that. And that seems to be the end of that dream.

I go to a house where I think you and I live, but you’re out of town of course, with some other people, and I’ve gone up and it’s got several layers, and I look out in the street at some point and I see that there are people out in the street that come and stuff something into people’s mouths and it changes them into these zombie-like creatures. Not zombies like chase you or eat you, but they want to make you just like them.

I see this happening so I see this happening so I quickly go and round up the people that work with you, and relatives, and anybody that I know and get them to come into my house. And then I start boarding up the house so that the zombie-type creatures that are trying to make everybody like them can’t catch us and force us to be like them.

But some people I can mobilize better than others. Some just stand around and look out the window kind of like they’re a little dull about the whole thing, and so I have to try to get others to help me go around and board up windows, or make sure all the doors are locked, and I’ve got a lot of levels of this house to take care of to do that.

At some point I have to get them to help me to bolt the door, or put pressure on the door, so someone can’t break in. There’s one area of the house finally that I go to, and I have to go out on a roof-like area. And there are some zombie people that have come, and a couple of the duller people, I think a young woman and an older woman, they’re out there with me, and the zombies get them and change them because they just are not swift enough or quick enough to know they shouldn’t let them get near them and stuff something in their mouths that changes them into being like them. And then they try to chase me, and the other people too.

Because I had gone out and done that, then I’m trying to get away outside and I go down to get the car and my car, I guess, is in a garage, and when I look there’s water flooding the street and it’s running even into the garage and it’s kind of icy too.

And so some cars will come, and once in a while a car will make it. It’ll go really fast through the water and even though this water is pushing it off to the side like with the rapids, it tends to somehow get in the garage and at least be able to park on the side. Other cars seem to be jammed into each other a little, and there’s some across the street that maybe are going to try or maybe they’re going to feel it’s not wise.

I actually see a kind of shallow spot and, in spite of some rapids ahead of me, I’m able to get about two-thirds of the way over and finally I kind of make it over a little place even though someone thinks I’m kind of crazy to be doing that.

I’m continuing to try to get away from the aliens, or from the zombie-type people. Well it looks like the zombies are going to get me, some aliens that have a lot of power that the zombies will try to touch, come down and seem to give me some protection.

But that means, for some reason, we all have to go to court over this. Maybe the zombies want to claim you and the aliens are giving you some protection. For some reason we have to all go to court.

So I go to the courtroom, and there are several of us from the house that are still okay, who are there, and we have a little strategy. I think I, and somebody else, will be a witness and somebody else would be the main person that’s testifying. We’ve got all of that settled, but then we’re going to have to spend the night in town because we’re going to the trial, so I go to check into the hotel again. I’d forgotten all about the hotel.

When I walk into the hotel they remind me about the wedding. It’s going to be another day or two, and I’ve forgotten all about it, and I don’t know if it’s okay with you or not, but I see that they have this card there where they charged your card and there’s even another little card with some people of the house, so I’m kind of congratulating us, even some of the doofus people that drew little pictures on it, and I’m just kind of in shock because I’d forgotten all about that.

I think that’s when I woke up.

John: This is a dream in which you incorporate, and attempt to catch up with, an energetic expression in the outer by coming from one side down into another. And so the idea is that as a purpose of coming into life you’re to accomplish or do something. You’re to help bring something through, or to find something.

In other words, something works as a magnetic attraction that has meaning to you, and so you make the sojourn through time under the idea that something is destined or meant to happen.

However, that’s kind of a way of projecting yourself. You have a slight projection involved here in terms of how you see yourself coming into light. And however you hold the theme of that, and in holding the theme of that you’re holding a certain balance, and in that balance you’re able to perceive things around you.

It’s just like in the past you used to hold a certain recognition of a certain shamanistic shift or quality that you had that you could hang out in, in spite of what was going on around you. And now you’ve turned this into something that’s an affinity for how it is that you’re able to come, and agree to come down into life, is that you’re going to be somehow supported in some capacity.

But the dilemma that you find yourself running into is, you have to put up with the amnesia of things, where you could become all zombied out, and get lost and estranged, from what it is that you’re bringing forth from one place or state into another.

And so the whole thing has to do with a sequence that’s time-oriented somehow, and then you have all kinds of things that happen in between that are all associated with making you more and more amnesic, or out of balance, with an overall unfoldment. And you go through the daze of that, and the daze of that, until you eventually realize and start to recognize how it is, and what it is, that you have agreed to, that will be okay based upon some idea or understanding or vibration.

And it’s based upon a vibration that you have an affinity for. However, because it’s a manifestation, you’re not sure just how that all comes to pass. You just know that there is something soothing about the vibration that you have an affinity for. You don’t necessarily know the greater detail of it, you just know that there is an affinity.

And then of course there’s the sorting out that has to happen in manifestation because there has to be the cohesion that has to come together. And none of that can find itself if you’re caught in some sort of collective mayhem that stands in the way, with things that gobble up or devour your sense of self. What were some of the other things you talked about?

Jeane: The aliens that were protective that came out of nowhere, the car and the water I had to cross.

John: Yes, those are all parts of the path that try to break through to the other side and you’re now using aliens as kind of an example of one place versus another.

Jeane: They were protective as opposed to the zombies.

John: As one place versus another. It’s still kind of like a memory. Just like you can be in creation now, and the lineage the you’re part of, and however it is that you create a linkage to something more as a transmission stream that you’re connected to, that’s very protective in the face of zombies that are all around you in terms of an energetic that’s astray.

Jeane: It was a long, complex dream. It was hard to pull it out. Like I said, then the wedding and stuff that I’d forgotten about.

John: Well, this whole thing is, is it stays within the context of the dream, where there is a coming back from another place, and in the coming back you come back in order to support and sustain something. And of course you then have to contend with a delirium that you have to go through, and forces that you have to deal with that don’t seem to have any light in them, and seem confused and bizarred out.

And you can’t let that rub off on you because you have to remember why it is, and what it is, about yourself that is here in terms of what its purpose or connection is all about. What is it in service to, so to speak?

You’ve taken one inflection, and you have kind of seen yourself in the light of that inflection being that after the path of Nirvana, or going home, comes the path of servitude, where you can come back and sustain or maintain some understanding that is important for creation.

Before you made the journey back, you were in a state that needed a lot of sorting out, and only after the sorting out could you get to a point where you could move beyond the conditioning of things in the outer. And once you have done that, that means you are kind of free.

But in the state of service you come back then, you venture back, you boldly take the freedom that you have, back into life and run the risk of the delusion all over again. With the difference being that you carry a note that can keep you from getting totally lost.

And so the whole idea of the marriage and the coming together of this, that, or the other is that note that you hear as an echo inside of you, that doesn’t totally go away in the face of the zombies and the lifelessness that you have to contend with.
