Posts Tagged ‘human purpose and human design’

qx14irIn time, all life seems to be a process of living and dying – and to what effect? There is an awful lot going on in this universe, then, for no apparent reason. It seems much more sensible to assume that everything has a purpose, and a role to play, in the unfolding of the whole, just like we see in any smaller ecology that is only made possible by the enormous variety of life forms that are needed to make it thrive. And, since the human is the most evolved species we know of, it is also sensible to assume that our role is an important one in the unfolding of the whole. But, perhaps, our role has nothing to do with money, entertainment, or power. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in this dream, I am not there to polish a car before it goes out on an adventure. In other words, there was this vehicle that I would take and I would go all around it just putting like a wax, or a bright shine on it. And when you polish this car to a glisten, you’re able to go out with this car in terms of it’s able to move about as needed.

So, in the dream, I do not show up. In other words, something has to happen and I do not show up as intended. And this car has to go out, and a person who has the garage says to the driver, who’s anxious to go, who’s tired of waiting for me to arrive, that he just doesn’t know about this.

My sense is that things will not bode well. In other words, I’m coming into the place but haven’t gotten there, and the car’s going to leave before I can get to it. And even if I could just polish the grill a little bit, if it’s that impatient, if I can just polish that, then that can make a big difference. Maybe things are too animated to give it a complete polish job.

So the meaning is this dream, like the prior dream, is about maintaining a natural and necessary vibratory effect. You hold that condition, and then the effects around you vie off of that.

So this is done, in outer life, by the dhikr of the breath. In the prior dream, trying to hold this effect as a vibration, or a magnetism or whatever, causes an unfoldment to be directed, although the net effect may not be ideal as one would like, because you do have your waverings, it still is an influence that catches up with something more – in terms of something coming through.

In this dream, I see that if I nurture this inner into outer vibration, that the car is successful wherever it goes and if I’m only somewhat focused, this is better than nothing at all because at least with this I will have hope, when without this there are just the denser characteristics of the collective vibratory that is the process, or influences the process; blurs it.

So the significance of this natural breath and nature is that, deep down, I have a sense that in the greater unfoldment all is well. I have had this inner knowingness for a long time. I now know where that comes from – as an ancient inner echo memory. I developed this knowingness by following the vibratory power of the all-pervading breath, something the dreams are saying is needed now, as an ancient history from long, long ago coming into fruition, that I have a vague memory of, that you trust as your ordinary beingness.

In other words, it’s almost as if I take and I look at things that are happening, and there’s a part of me that always kind of wants to keep telling myself that everything’s kind of okay, that it’s all unfolding in a way that I don’t necessarily have a full grasp on, almost as if I can do no wrong because there is that going on. I think I’ve gotten that from having held a vibration to such a degree, in the past, that the world just shaped around that, and I knew how to hold that – because, otherwise, why would you do that?

As you go through your practices, in the outer, you invoke a vibratory sound that is everything, because every world is make out of sound, the sound has an effect in shaping and polishing the world’s soul. As you hold onto a silent, inner, vibratory connection, the light of the inner comes through and is the means by which the inner affects the plane of matter. And, from this vibratory innerness, said to be light, life is shaped and shifted. This effect, light, gives to the world’s soul, which is like a place of sound, will hopefully take it off life support. In other words, he’s working so much with sound but he’s got to make sure he works with light.

And then I have a sequence of visions. The first one is, the dream shifts, and I’m seeing an unfoldment with a vibratory connected need not present in the scenario, but nearby, similar to the meditation dream. So in the dream and vision world there is no time and space, so what I am able to pull together to a wholeness, a knowingness, a connectivity, is just naturally able to be possible being able to see the two different places.

And the meaning is that light takes the plane of sound and effuses it, and gives it this greater effusiveness, and, as sound, there are qualities, or force of nature variables, that are more likely to be in the way, because of the fact that it needs something to come from the inner in order to get the thing going. It’s not just a rising up. It’s an inner coming down to touch outer, and outer rising up to touch light.

So in this vision the all-effusive light is affecting the plane of sound. For reference purposes, I am equating the plane of sound with the world’s soul. The world’s soul wants to shift, but lacks the inner light which must come through the human to effectuate the shift needed.

And in this vision, I am beholding a baby boy who holds my attention as I seek to just be there with him, in kind of a state of shared wonderment, and to give him needed assurance I say, “You are my first born son.” You know, a sense of something again coming through, holding something, holding that original breath.

In the next vision, inside my store, is a person who is not getting what he needs because of a timing problem. I point out to him on display outside of the store, kind of sitting in the sun on the sidewalk, are a bunch of oranges. I tell him they are not yet uniformly ripe, but within each orange is the essence he seeks.

In other words, he’s seeking it in the store and he can’t find it, and so we create the flip. And the oranges are a depiction again, only the oranges are of a different taste. Each one may taste a little different because they’re not all perfectly ripe, but they will get there.

So he asks then if he can take some, and I say, yes, and then he beckons his daughter to pick up some of the oranges, and I cringe initially inside because I’m hoping he is conscious enough to know that he only needs a few. He will hurt the overall wholeness, or process and effect, there, that’s taking place, if he doesn’t understand the fullness issue.

So the meaning, and what is going on, is that the oranges on display on the sidewalk, when complete, will intertwine and complement each other. And when that day arrives, the sweetness will be essentially the same in terms of each orange. At present there is a coming into completeness, but to an awakened being there is enough there now to work with as a process; in other words, but he doesn’t need be whole hog. In other words, there has to be a moderation as it takes time for the essential oneness to ripen within all that is touched.

René_Magritte_The_Human_Condition

Rene Magritte

When we look around us at the world today, we think we are looking at the human condition. But that is not so: we are looking at a species of human that is disconnected from their natural condition. And that’s a problem, because the world we have created makes it ever more difficult to grasp the point: the human design is the most sensitive and amazing technology, and it is designed to connect to and work with the infinity of higher energies in the universe. In this way, every human has a unique, potential genius. But higher energies must be wooed and invited, by us; they cannot respond to our coarseness. In fact, we are invisible to them when we are at our most coarse: when we are angry, cruel, or judgmental, or when we are just out for our personal gain, rather than seeking to help the whole of things. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So the theme of the dreaming last night is whether or not we’re getting the right diagnosis. In other words, if nothing can shift, if things aren’t shifting, if things are continuing to break down, if you can have a descending of a lot of energy, tremendous vibration of energy, and still there remains, after a period of time, still there remains a problem, does that mean that life isn’t able to transition, or shift, because something isn’t coming across in a way that it needs to come across?

And so, I think the thing that is driving all of this has to do with the design, and there needed to be something brought through in terms of an understanding of going back to the basics, and understanding the design, and everything is considered not having the proper diagnosis if one isn’t in accordance with the design that’s meant to be.

In other words, first there was this huge download of energy, in other words we’re describing the scenario. First there was this huge download of energy on the first night and the second night of the program, and then something kind of tapered off as you saw individuals have to contend with what had happened. And it seemed like people are very sincere in trying to contend with it, but they’re having issues with stuff being unable to ground out. I mean their kundalini energy is jumpy and it’s affecting their way of dreaming.

And so the proper diagnosis that unfolded, that got flushed through, had to do with the particular thread or note of this particular path, which has to do with holding a vibration, being in a vibration with the dhikr, that there’s only three things to do and everything else is kind of a waste of time. There’s the holding of the meditation, the prayer, and the dhikr.

I suspect under meditation, a quality of meditation, is dream work and such, too, where you’re probing the depth of things, and that works in relationship to prayer, and that opens up a lot of energy, and that energy then is held during the day with the dhikr.

And so it creates the whole sense that the individual, then, is tying in, and connecting to, energies, light energies, that are far greater than what they are used to accessing in the physical. And because they don’t access it in the physical, and yet it is part of their being, and that ultimately somewhere down the road one goes from loci to loci as an embodiment of light without the physical aspect of one’s being.

So that’s presented as the motif, the principle lesson. That’s the doctor’s diagnosis – and he needs to get both sides to agree: the side of yourself that’s a shadow orientation, and the side of yourself that needs to somehow or another hear this.

Is this possible? It seems that it’s the only thing that makes sense, from what is presented. It’s the only thing that makes sense, or otherwise you go around and around with trying to untangle the process, in terms of getting it so that it can be understood. Or you go around and around, going up and down in various vibratory ways, that can have a set definition to them, but those definitions don’t shift very readily. And you can have individuals with flexibility in relationship to those energetics, and those individuals can’t readily communicate with others that are set in some way. And so you really do have a tremendous language barrier.

So it seems that there is this whole beingness of one’s self that exists, in a way, that reaches beyond the conditions that one finds one’s self in, and yet the complexity is: how is it possible to exist in terms of the human condition, and the divine condition? And it’s been tried, in terms of trying to just do the divine condition, and when one has tried to do just the divine condition that doesn’t work, so there’s something to the human condition.

Now the human condition is a condition in which there is this tremendous amnesia, in terms of the other part of one’s self, the greater part of one’s self. So how do you bring in something into that amnesia? In other words, how do you awaken the light hidden in matter? How do you do that?

And so Lewin was basically presenting his understanding of how that’s been designed to be done by the Naqshbandis, and how it works is there comes a point in time where, he indicates, that he couldn’t do what he does without working with the angelic, which are beings of light. And so that’s presented, that’s all there, but is that something we’re capable of understanding? Is that something that we’re capable of taking in?

How does that comport with the human condition? It, in and of itself, sounds like something that’s outside of the human condition, in terms of the density of things, and yet, at the same time, it is said that the human condition has to be taken into account. So there’s the dilemma. You get your diagnosis that this is kind of how it is, and it’s a real paradox condition.

An-Rep4To have a spiritual awakening is to open oneself to the greater possibility of life, the possibility of life aligned to the purposes of the whole, and in service to the whole. Yet such an awakening is only the transition point from “lost” to “found.” Then the work begins, where we let go of our personal viewpoints and align ourselves to the ways of the universe. In this process, over time, we begin to actually live the essence of this understanding, and instead of feeling separate from It, we become connected and intertwined with It.

John: The way I did it seems very, very rebellious.

So, in the meditation dream, I am shown that for a long time only a certain result is possible. In other words, this is the precursor of talking about how the result that I saw as possible was how you saw the divine through outer reflections, or, as I try to say it, what I mean by that was my belief that the outer is limited in some capacity.

In other words, the outer is a reflection, and that the inner revelation is behind it. And this has been my belief based upon the way my breath has been able to correlate the reflections. I have held onto this belief until I had a dream last night in which I came to see, maybe it’s more of an experience than a dream, where I came to see that the consciousness of a human being exceeds all limitations. That’s like something beyond.

When you take and you note things like that reflectively it’s very easy to think, okay, now there are spiritual elders and there’s all kinds of other things, holy names, there’s all of this other kind of stuff that’s like outside of yourself. So when I have this experience, that actual essence of consciousness exceeds all limitations, meaning that there is nothing that you can see in a kind of distinguishable way. That’s when I realize that any limitations, that I perceive to be imposed, are conditions that still hold out to a mindfulness that is embracing the human being as a kind of reality in an outer illusion.

In other words, you have the reflective, and then, what is that when you have the divine essence revelationally behind it? And now, of course, I’m having to contend with that, you know all of the little nuances and ways of trying to say things to make a point, to try to point even more so to the inner revelation through other reflection. And so, if everything is a oneness, such outer illusions, you know when treated as outer illusions, are actually a limiting distinction.

You kind of have a bit of a duality there, even though you’re trying to pretend you don’t. I had an inner experience in which I went beyond all states of human limitation and was made aware that there isn’t anything that isn’t part of the overallness, and the human being, in the outer, is the platform for the inner oneness.

Now it’s interesting: human being’s a platform for the inner oneness. The reason this is so is because a human being accesses the Will of God. Understand now, I am speaking of this in the reflective, not yet in the living. When the platform and access become one, the inner access and the outer reflective platform come together as living essence. That is when I am able to perceive, in my dreams, that there is nothing going on but me. I am the inner vibration that is essenced. The idea that there is still something more than me was the old dream paradigm.

By old dream meaning a dream more associated with the out-breath. And an out-breath is something that comes down seeking to awaken, results in an awakening as it touches and penetrates the reflective. And so in that state you have a platform, then you have a soul coming in, you have the awakening and recognition through the reflective of the divine within the reflective. And so that’s the old paradigm for dreaming, and in that paradigm you actually then have the sense that there are two things, kind of like two things. There’s the platform and then there’s the Will of God. The idea that there is still something more than me, that’s the old paradigm.

This platform serves mankind while mankind remains asleep; in other words, asleep in the dreams of the outer. In this paradigm, the human being perceives that he has access to the inner Will of God, but isn’t the Will of God. And, in this dynamic, sees himself as waking up, or becoming conscious. That being the process of waking up. This paradigm is true while a human being is spellbound by the outer reflections.

A human being is spellbound and subject to the thralls of outer sorcery for as long as the human being remains in the realms of waking up. That’s why you’re always confused, and bewildered, and never really quite know what’s going on. You’re subject to all kinds of sorceries, inflections, reflections. This realm is most accentuated in the out-breath, and is noticed at the interval where the out-breath turns into the in-breath, the state called longing which corresponds to the outer and the hypnagogic state; the outer and the hypnagogic state.

Now there are two hypnagogic states. There’s the hypnagogic state that’s founded in the outer, where you’re asleep and you’re waking up, and you’re having the senses come in as the soul that is the expanse of the essence of it all seems to be replaced by the magnetism of the outer. Or, in other words, it’s the condition which is immediately prior to the return of the senses when the eyes open from a deep sleep dream state.

The state where a human being goes from being a platform for the Will of God, to being the Will of God able to live the inner stillness is accentuated in the breath at the interval where the in-breath turns into the out-breath – and this corresponds, in terms of the hypnagogic state, to what you are able to experience immediately prior to falling asleep. That’s where you’re able to take something that can rise up and be within, and change images, change the reflections in the world. This is the point where the Will and stillness are one. It’s where the platform, so to speak, and the Will, the platform in which something is hidden as an essence in that, and that being the corresponding Will, are one and the same.

Oneness is living the essence, and when the essence is lived reflections generate from a human being, as the so-called Will of God, that had seemed separate, in terms of human body platform, no longer is separate. There’s a merging.

What I am describing is the difference between being in a process of waking up, where in the reflections the inner divine is revealed, and the process in which living the Will of God through the physical platform, which is the point where the reflections stream from the divine essence. Isn’t that interesting? When you dream something like that you can only imagine you’re going to have a very bizarre dream.
