12BgeWe may have noticed the many lives within us: one thinks our career is most important, one thinks our love life is, one is vain about our appearance, one is lazy and wants to drop all responsibility. These lives, and many more, have different moments in us, each taking the lead for certain periods of time and setting the agenda. But, these differing agendas can dilute our ability to make progress. It is always best to give all the lives within us an organizing principle, one that each of our lives can rally around and support, and that gives us a reference for making decisions. This is why every life can benefit from having a higher purpose. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in my dream, I go to a lecture to hear a successful person give an inspirational speech to some aspiring young adults who are at a threshold in their life. These are students who are looking for what is important in their lives.

In other words, it’s like they’re going to college, or are about to go to college, about to make a major step, and so they’re listening to this inspirational speaker. The person who is speaking is deemed to be of renown, and I’m talked into going to listen because I know one of the students. The student probably even has talked to the speaker, because what unfolds indicates that something got tweaked.

Well, I go to listen, and I sit in the front row. And, of course, they’re all young, just starting out in life, and I’m kind of an old geezer; I’ve made my run. So the student who invited me, apparently having spoken to the scholar, must have been holding me out with some esteem with the scholar. Now, as I said, I’m the old person and everyone else is young just getting started in life, and other than the speaker, who probably deems that he has lived his life in an accomplished way, everything’s at a drawing board here.

So, at a lull in the presentation, the speaker asked me if I went to college. Well, I can tell by the nature of his question, that the idea of getting a college education and credentials is a meaningful process. And I say to him, in answer to his question, that for me a college education would have been a mistake. I speak of another lifestyle in which I made sacrifices that others deem unpleasant. I point out that things have worked out for me, and I am now free to do whatever I want. I’m able to just play around and enjoy life.

I then say, it is not as if I never went to college, I just never went to get a degree because, to do so, would have been a mistake. Nothing that I did was designed to make me into something specific. I never graduated. When I was done, he sort of disappeared. A bit of his presentation was shredded. His pitch was about following a particular thread of development, or unfoldment. What I spoke about was an exception to that, in that I was coming from a focus and attention that was listening, apparently, to within, because from the outer, this makes a lot of sense, those conceptualizations that he was presenting.

So, the meaning is, I am having to contend with two parts of myself: there is a side that notices what others notice to be important, and reflects that. And so I’m able to look at that as a reflection and projection. And there is another part of me that knows such criteria and way of being shuts a person off from finding true freedom.

So, what is the dream doing? The dream is working with softening my energetic that is more effective when I step back from any particular way and take in a greater overallness as my beingness. To do so I have to let go of the definitions that others impose upon themselves.

Reason for dream, or, in other words, the scenario that triggered it: a four-point plan was presented to society by a teacher I know. In reading the four-point plan I realized there are going to be people who take it literally. That would have been a problem for me, and I am glad that I opened up to more than a directed system. For me that would have been a mistake. It would have defined me in a self-limiting way.

That is what I find that I am really reacting about; in other words, what was I reacting about in terms of this four-point plan? Was I reacting in terms of the idea of grief? Well there’s more to grief. It’s important in terms of an aspect of letting go to catch up to love, but then don’t go mistaking that for love because that’s not true. As an aspect, or form, of love, just like joy is love’s strength, too, and grief, maybe as a way of catching up to a letting go.

So when you take and you present it as a four-point plan, or any kind of system or plan, and you present that in the outer like that, all you’re doing is like admonishing a person to go ahead and follow an A, B, C checklist to getting ahead in the world, like going to college and so on. What that does is it shuts down the fertileness of something that is an aliveness trying to be in a quickened way.

And it’s susceptible to being deceived by following some singular thread, or another, and not take in a much larger picture. So that’s what I’m reacting about. Because, deep within, there is something expressing itself, in this dream, as an energetic seeking much more.

im909sAll matter has energy, yet all energy does not have matter. The more matter an energy has, the more it is slowed down from its pure state – which is always faster that its material state. In our processes, we try to let go of reading all the information we receive from the physical world, and instead try to connect to the more refined, more pure energetics of the electrical realms. From the electrical realms we can get more information and intelligence in an instantaneous way. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: I went around and around with this, almost in terms of getting a bit of a reprimand as well, in terms of the process. So what I was describing, in terms of how the stillness is, was this unusual experience in the meditation dream, in which, instead of taking and being aware of something in the environment, it’s like my meditations are most effective in terms of something being realizable if I just let go to an inner stillness, and then out of the inner stillness come images.

And now I’m seeing that it’s possible that these images can flash before me so fast, that if the flashes were to slow down, to like a palpable pace, that’s when you would have indulgence, ego, and corruption of the flow. That’s when the personal would come in; that’s when the lower self comes into the equation.

By being able to take in a wholeness of all of life in at this incredible speed means that I’m able to catch up with the inner knowingness. In other words, it’s just there, it’s infused, so to speak. So what I’m shown, however, is that this inner knowingness is basically a way of taking the outer reflections, of an inner essence, and realizing that if they go by fast enough, or if you speed them up, that there is no time for an indulgence. In fact, this can be so fast that, in layman’s terms, what I’m being shown is that this is a speed that the ordinary human senses, that sort of outer nature, cannot discern, cannot see.

Which means that my human condition has these barriers that hold me back. And so, the stillness, or a still dream, when it is happening, and when I’m able to report something back, I’m actually catching flashes that are quicker than the outer, which is of sound, maybe flashes of real light, that I’m able to somehow denote, but I don’t hold on to. They go by so fast that there isn’t the contamination, or the rub off, like there is in the outer where you noodle with it all. Our tendency is to try to keep up; that’s how our lower self dictates. But what I’m talking about is an inner essence that is going in a capacity that is too much to notice. It’s, therefore, also too overall and all-encompassing.

So then I ponder: what can this be like to try to put this together? The knowingness is the result of a speed of light inflection going by so fast that there is no time for indulgence. The speed is so fast that my lower self cannot control what is flowing; it cannot see the flow as an inner speed. Consequently, the effect of a knowingness is consciousness. In other words, when it’s like that, I guess you’d have to say that the knowingness is like a consciousness in a stillness. It’s infused from like a stillness, yet, actually, it was like images, but you just couldn’t pick up on it.

It’s kind of like they’ve discovered, in terms of running commercials, that they can put one frame of a subliminal frame, that might show a juicy hamburger, to entice your taste buds. But because it’s just one frame going by so fast on a screen, that it only has a subliminal effect because, in terms of your sight senses, you don’t actually see it. And yet some part of yourself does grasp the speed of that. And so it has its desired effect.

A human being actually does have some sort of discernment to a greater speed, and if you can sneak up and catch and grab that, you can set in motion something inside of them much greater than speaking to them in a black-and-white dense way.

And the significance, and the suggestion, of the dream is that this has me wondering if absolute consciousness is a speed within that has no time for indulgence. The flashes of light go by so fast that, in the higher self, there’s nothing for a denseness and indulgence to get a hold of. The speed is so fast that it is as if it never happened – yet it did happen. And yet, as that happens, is that what it’s all about?

Such a speed, as a stillness, beyond the capability to take in, that being what is really real. In noticing from within an overallness that is all-inclusive, as a flash, it’s like that because it’s absorbed it all to the point where it doesn’t register to the senses. That’s when I realized that my physical nature, how it’s missing so much; only my soul keeps up, or, this light, that is perceivable if i can catch it, is what is going on.

My physical isn’t able to let go, to be enabled, so the pure light can’t be there. Or, in other words, is there, but is unpalpable to the physical senses. That which is not perceivable to the physical senses, because it is occurring at speed beyond such faculties, is, from the perspective of the physical senses, well, you’d have to say it’s a stillness. Or it’s a non-existence.

That’s the suggestion: that to a higher-self stillness, the essence of all there is, is this. By slowing the process down, I now know what stillness and consciousness are about on the plane of the soul. The overallness is too vast, and fast, and I know now that the place of the soul is a plane of pure light. I mean now I know what they mean when they describe it as a pure light that you can’t see.

And I now know that the flow that involves the God essence, a seeing and hearing outside of the human faculties of power and control, I know what that means now. In other words, that power and control is something densed down to where you try to grab a hold of it. And to the human faculties, they have to have a somethingness to work with. They don’t know that they’re lost in a nothingness, because the human faculties can’t work at such a speed, a speed that is noticeable by the universal soul.

Stillness is the conditioning which the physical senses are unable to perceive because they’re not able to be there. The lighter, or the higher-self, speed supersedes and overrides all that there is. That’s why it’s always inner coming into outer. It’s just that the outer just really can take and confuse things.

BatalhaMIt is still common to imagine a religious, or spiritual, life as being done somewhere else, on a mountaintop, or in a monastery. And those situations have been utilized because they allowed the devoted person to not be “tempted” by all the entertainments of the world. And it’s not that the things that distract us are inherently bad, it’s just they tend to pull us away from our journey, to knock us off our game. Still, our journey is based on our intentions, and the actions that follow from those intentions, so a most high journey can be done, from anywhere, at anytime. If it is in us, it goes where we go. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Then in the next dreams, which seemed very brief, it feels like a friend is talking with me. And it feels like we’re in the East, but more like the East of the United States or something, but there is gambling there. And they’re saying that there’s a system that we can beat the roulette table. It has to do with whether you bet on black or red, or it may be something that we can do that actually rigs it somewhat and we can make some money.

I can hear what they’re saying, and it may even be true. Maybe, particularly if I were a little gutsier, but I don’t have confidence in the system; that if we go to the casino, we start messing with the roulette table, that’s actually going to be okay. Maybe we could win, but they seem to feel it would work fine. And I seem to be having my doubts.

John: So hopefully you can make this a four part dream, because this is like the second part, and you’re causing me to realize that often the four parts come together as a one can actually come together, you know, or maybe in your dreaming can come together, as the pulling together the four primary archetypes.

Now the first archetype was that in which there’s kind of a prostitute energy gone awry, where you’re caught in a complexity that’s just a weight and a burden, and can’t break yourself out of that amnesia. Knowing that there is more, though.

And in the second part, you’re putting it into action, in that you’re now going to have to do something in life – you’re here. Before you were complaining, in terms of how it needed to be, according to your conceptualization – that’s like a prostitute energy.

Now, you’re putting it into a motion. And you’re employing kind of a gambler energy. You’re going to see how this, that, or the other can be affected, in terms of changing the overall effect of things.

But even in this dream, you’re burning that off because you’re kind of realizing that that’s a little doofus, too, right? So what’s next?

Jeane: Well, at this point, I seem to have hooked up with you. And, because of that, we’re looking for a place to live. And, at first, we’re on the East Coast, and maybe that’s where we were living at the time, and there are some homes there that I even know the people that own them, but we seem to be wanting to just use that for storage. And we’re looking for a place where we can live together.

And suddenly we seem to be out on the West Coast. We’re visiting a house where actually Ellyn is living with his family, although his kids are kind of getting ready to go out on their own, or have. But we all go out house hunting. But as we go out house hunting, it feels like the homes that we’re looking at are either all sold out in that particular subdivision, or we just can’t quite find the right house.

So when we come back, I think Ellyn’s in another room, his kids are out, one of his kids is kind of excited because they actually maybe have sold all of the homes in a subdivision, but, you know, there’s just not quite a house for us. So you and I are talking and maybe we’re going to have to come back to the East Coast for another couple of years before we can move. And are we’re going to get a temporary place, or are we going to come out? But it feels like we have to go back to the East Coast for a period of time before we can come back.

John: And so that’s like the thief archetype in which you’re now seeing what it is that you have to have, what house, or whatever it is that you have to have. But the interesting thing is that the fourth archetype – do you have the fourth archetype? That was it?

The reason why I was wondering if that was it, is you are associating this as something that needs to be figured out, in terms of going to the East, in which something arises. And so the excitement of something new coming in is like the drunkard archetype; it’s overwhelming, to begin with.

That’s again an aspect that has to be carried, and dealt with, in terms of bringing out a wholeness. So how does the drunkard archetype? That’s interesting. The drunkard archetype, you go 1, 2, 3, 4. And after four things, you’re supposedly able to hit a quality of a kind of completeness, inside of oneself, or at least you take a step in the journey.

And so, you’re finding what it is, in this third dream, in terms of a house in which you can lay claim to, like a thief, and of course it has a lot of wonderful things, there’s the teacher around in that area, too. But it’s in the East where something is rising or coming into life.

You’re going to have to go back to the East and deal with the drunken energy of something coming in, before something can set in the West. West is an ending and a completion. Wow, it’s an interesting dream, playing what’s the archetypes. Makes one ponder your archetypes and what they mean to you now, again. Of course, that’s information for you to ponder.

I think what it does, as I would see the dream, is that it causes you to look at how you get speeded up. What all of that is that does that. You let go of this, you let go of that, you let go of that, and then you get speeded up. It’s causing you to look at that. And then, that has to set, and then something more is known.

I never thought of you having the drunken quality, but I can see how you do that, and I never thought of it being kind of like something that stirs around like this, at a point where, in terms the teacher, in terms of the setting of things into the West. That there is this Eastern thing, the arising of something, from the East, coming up, that that has to come up, as well. But that comes up before it, then, settles.

And the settling to the West would be going into a stillness. And the East is action, vibrancy, drunken vibrancy. It sweeps it all; it sweeps over it all. The sun sweeps over all things, and then finally, eventually, sets in the West as a stillness, as a letting go. Interesting way of doing it.
