gateway-lAs humans, we may ponder the subtleties of life, but do we ponder why we can ponder the subtleties of life? To look at the universe is to understand that things unfold according to laws, with every cause leading to an effect. And because of this, it is unfolding toward something, or somewhere – perhaps some evolved state. Much of the grief in the world may, indeed, be caused by our disconnection from the utter beauty of things doing what they are meant to do. When things do what they are designed and meant to do, they find themselves in a sacred state.

Jeane: So I had three dreams. The first was a little bit less a dream than just kind of a scenario. And, in this scenario, my dad and I are going down, and I think that you or someone like you is along, too. And my dad has this idea that there’s this baseball team in town, and, as kind of like a lark, he’s going to go down and try out for it, because he has a sense that he and initially I think it’s me, but it ends up being you, can get on this team as kind of novelty batters, or something.

But where we go is we go right to a place where the ocean meets the shore. And that’s where you have the tryouts for the baseball team. In fact it’s almost like the batter’s standing on the land, and the pitcher and everybody must be out on the water. But I realize that I don’t really think either of you are going to get picked up by a Major League team.

John: So what you’re portraying is a quality of a letting go, in which the evolvement of things doesn’t have any kind of particular definition. Anything that has a particular definition is limited. I mean, it’s not a bad thing to now ponder that Tao thing that you read.

In other words, the limiting thing would be for me and your dad to be picked up by a Major League team because we’re actually doing something that’s noticeable, that has a particular consequence, or an effect, that can be utilized in some capacity, or taken in and steered in a kind of mental control in some fashion, or capacity.

But your dad and I, we just take the pitches that come, and we hit them out into infinity; they’re absorbed by the ocean, they don’t fall into a particular motif. So what you’re dream is saying to you is that the essence of yourself, in other words, as you sit as a being in manifestation, you are realizing that there’s nothing to be attained or accomplished, per se, that will fulfill you in manifestation.

So, you take in life in such a way whereby the input of things coming in – and the input of things coming in are kind of like something masculine in orientation – in other words, it’s because it’s the masculine that has to deal with the input of things, has to bring the stuff in, and you’re realizing that that masculine, those aspects of things, the value of those is not in terms of coming up with something that’s this or that – definitional – so that it meets and reaches some sort of recognition, recruited in some fashion, in some linear, definitional way.

You have come to know that the greater meaningfulness of things is that what comes in can get splayed, just like the definition of the word beingness in what you read, gets splayed into the overall wholeness of something that’s non-definitional.

So, what you’ve done is you’ve actually, in your dream, caught the meaning of beingness. And you’ve caught the meaning of nothingness. You should read that dream and put it on the tape.

Jeane: This is from a book called The Complete Works of Lao Tzu. It’s translated and elucidated by Hua-Ching Mi, and this is from the Tao Te Ching – but, again, it his elucidation or translation of it.

“Now the subtle reality of the universe cannot be described. That which can be described in words is merely a conception of the mind. Although names and descriptions have been applied to it, the subtle reality is beyond the description.

“One may use the word ‘nothingness’ to describe the origin of the universe, and ‘beingness’ to describe the mother of the myriad things. But nothing and beingness are merely conceptions. From the perspective of nothingness, one may perceive the expansion of the universe. From the perspective of beingness, one may distinguish individual things. Both are for the conceptual convenience of the mind.

“Although different concepts can be applied, nothingness and beingness, and other conceptual activity of the mind, all come from the same indescribable, subtle originalness. The Way is the unfoldment of such subtle reality. Having reached the subtlety of the universe, one may see the ultimate subtlety, the gate of all wonders.”

Harper-train-34Anyone who has ever missed a train that they absolutely had to catch knows that the first thought is: can I get to the next station before the train does? This is how it is with energies and being in the flow: they never stand still, but are always in motion and evolving. When we go off on our own tangent – usually by taking something too personally – we are left in the station while the flow moves on. And, through our development, we can become more and more able to stay on the train as it moves through life, going where the flow takes us.

Jeane: In my next dream, it feels like I’m engaged to this man. And he has a ship, or a yacht,

that he spends a certain amount of time on, and I’m usually on the land. But, at some point, I have family that’s going to visit, so I’m going back and forth before that.

And when I first go on his little yacht, there’s a main room and it feels like I’ve helped design the way that tables fit up against the wall there. But then I leave and I come back, and he seems to go out on the yacht and come back to shore, or at least, I mean, where the yacht is docked. And when I go out on the yacht this time, I see that he’s put in a whole new set of tables that kind of nestle a certain way up against the wall. And that I’m not that aware of what he’s doing on the yacht with his friends, when they go out to sea, that I don’t know much about the detail of what they’re doing – so I have a little uneasiness about that.

And, then there’s just a slight shift in the dream where it feels like, on the land sometimes I travel up through the mountains before I go down to where the water is. And I’m scouting out a route, through the mountain passes, to get down there.

John: In this dream, you have been on the boat and you have set the tables up in a particular way? And then the boat has come and gone, and come and gone, it’s made a voyage or two, or whatever, and everything is in a different arrangement.

And so, because of that, you are feeling that you’re out of touch with what’s taking place because when it was set up it was set up under one motif, and then the thing has come and gone and come gone a few times and it’s now under a whole different… There appears to be something more going on that you’re not keeping up with.

So if you take the scenario, and the scenario was this whole reactive thing that occurred yesterday, in which I felt that things are too dire in terms of how one is looking at things. In other words, viewing grief as being some aspect of love, simply because what is going on is not making sense.

In the first dream you’re pointing out that a greater stillness or something is needed in order to contend with that. In this dream, you’re showing that maybe the reason for the greater stillness is because your involvement, your note into the equation, has lost its effect. In other words, things have changed. Something has changed in terms of the comings and goings. And the way you felt that the table and the mannerism of things was set up, you felt that this is how things needed to be.

And so the fact that something has changed means that something is askew. And you have two ways that you can look at that. You can look at that as requiring a greater depth and a greater meaning. The first dream dealt with the need for deeper a stillness, to be able to bring something into the equation – as opposed to just sitting with it as dense as it was. And, in the second dream, what unfolds just unfolds. And where you were holding the note to something has been left behind. In other words, there’s more going on in the equation.

And I suppose one could actually take a reactive view and say that what is occurring had no right to occur without you being part of the action, without you being on top of it, and aware of it. It’s as if something shifted, and changed, and happened – and left you behind.

I mean, that’s interesting information: isn’t that what is haywire in life, is something is changing, something is shifting, we’re coming into an age when there’s so much going on that one has to make a deeper switch or change in terms of an inner depth – or they’re not going to be able to keep up? And to try to act as if there is a particular quality, or a note, that one can adhere to is perhaps looking at something in too much of an absolute way.

In other words, there are things that are changing. And then there are things that are absolute, but then you could get caught and lost on what is absolute. And the only real absolute is that there is a greater and greater and greater stillness. And I don’t think it’s the right attitude to be assuming that there’s something wrong in the stillness, although it can appear that there’s something amiss, all right, in that the reflections that I can see from deep inside of myself, that come up out of that stillness, of which the reflections that are in the outer seem to be just like a lesser octave of that, seem to be all swallowed up by the reflections that are coming up from deep within.

The whole thing presupposes that I know what’s going on in the stillness, and I’m finding out that if I truly let go, I will find that in the stillness there is peace. And so, the definition for grief is love that is not letting go. And joy is a quality, joy and peace are deemed to be love’s strength. So, if you have love that is not letting go, that means that you’re reacting through the fact these voyages, the comings and goings of things, have left you behind. Because for some particular reason what you set up, you expected to carry the day, to hold the way things are – and something is different.

You’re not, as in the first dream, properly accessing, and recognizing, and giving greater credence, to love’s strength, which is joy and peace, and that is found in a stillness.

R0471-5There are many magical things that can happen on a spiritual journey, and the enhancements can be great, and that is because when any higher energetic deals with a lower energetic (a human in this example), it will, by definition, bring greater intelligence, healing, and well being. And so being connected to higher things can bring a grace and protection to our lives. But what is higher can only come to us when we provide a safe ecology for them. And that begins with realizing that this life is not about us, but about us being a part of something greater, and that, then, is genuinely manifested by our thoughts and intentions. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, then I have a dream, in which apparently I’m being challenged or questioned in terms of how it is that I’m able, and what I need to hear to be able, to work with others in an open way.

And so, in this dream, I see myself as sitting at a desk that faces out to a larger area. And there are other people that are around this desk, that I work with. And, at my disposal, I have resources like a dictionary and stuff where I can relate back to whatever it is that I might need to be able to do this job.

And I’ve gotten to a point where there is a colleague that’s at another desk, who I’m supposed to be working more closely with, who’s actually kind of a superior to me, but somehow or another, I’ve created so much commotion where I’m at that a dispute has kind of risen up between myself and this colleague.

And because of something having swept up in relationship to me, I’m of the opinion that if there are changes going to happen it’s going to infect him, not necessarily me. But what happens is, I get moved from my desk that faces out in the open, that has the access to the materials around me and such, and I get moved to a desk that faces a wall. And then all of a sudden, I’m handed a bunch of cards, like you hand out in terms of who you are, or whatever, and the cards have H.R. Horton on them. So I assume that somehow or another I’m working for a division in this company, now, called H.R. Horton.

But the next thing you know, I’m taking a test, or answering questions, that seem to have something to do with this role that I now have. And these questions, they’re questions that can take, with various degrees, of how to look at color samples, or mixing components together. Something that I haven’t any knowledge of whatsoever.

And even some of the terms that are used I’m unfamiliar with, so I’m baffled at how to answer these questions. I mean, I’m given a couple of choices, but, any of the options – they’re all the same. I have no idea what I’m doing.

So what is going on is I have gone outside of a protective shelter, in which I was under a kind of semblance, soul semblance, and I’m now having to experience what it’s like to have a connection get lost. And what caused this, in this dream, is that, and of course there was a prior dream that fit in with this now, where I tried to do something that created instead a confusion, and I had a sense of what was viable, and real, and a way to do it. I could see it inside. But when I tried to then bring it across in relationship to another in the outer, it didn’t work.

And there was a trust in me, and so I violated this trust. Because the mistake I made is I thought it would flow, simply because I had seen it within, and reviewed it within myself. But in the outer, I couldn’t make it happen. And this created a protraction, that was like a violation, and there was no way, in terms of what I was seeing and what I was suggesting, even, that could break through to this inner barrier because I couldn’t bring it through enough to have the clarity that was needed.

And when I realized it was too late, that even though it may have appeared at a glance that the other person accepted and recognized when I said that this wasn’t right, still a damage or a wound had been done. In other words, in terms of the issue, I tried to point out to this other person what I was doing didn’t work, and just wasn’t right. In other words, I went along with the focus, thinking it would pop through, and it didn’t because I was out of alignment.

As from the meditation dream, I had lost my barriers. I wasn’t able to bring it through. I pressed on instead of stopping, and, as a result, it couldn’t work because I couldn’t bring it through, the effect was unacceptable and damaging.

So I guess what one could say is that because I still vacillate like this, number one, not to take for granted anything, because there is a lot of grace or something that pulls something into an intertwined capacity together that makes this work. And when it’s not there, there’s going to be a problem. And two, to be very careful and pay a lot more attention to the little nuances of things, in other words, the little subtle stuff as was pointed out, I didn’t seem to know the little variances between the tinctures of things. And three, to recognize that you cannot be isolated from what is important, or the team in this case in the dream, and to realize that the intertwining is always like being put through a test – to work through things. When you get a chance to look at it, and see it this way, you realize you have a long ways to go to knowing where in the dickens you’re at.
