What is a spiritual journey? Before one makes it, it can seem that it’s just living life with a deeper consciousness – which is true. But it also entails continual change and letting go, so that all the aspects of a life that are not in alignment with the universal purpose are set aside. This is how a life connects to the whole, and also how it gains the intelligence to proceed because the process is incremental and we need inner guidance all along the way.

John: My last two dreams dealt with what you dreamt with, but the precursor dream to all of that, the meditation dream, is quite interesting in terms of the journey of the human being.
The meditation dream kind of sets the table of it all, or the consequence of it all, in that I was shown last night in the meditation dream the way the underlying essence dynamic, how this underlying essence affects manifestation – kind of how it works, in other words.
The process refines a human being into intertwining with manifestation. The inner essence vibration goes into physical existence, in other words, that’s how the intertwined essence comes to pass is it goes from inner into outer, eventually. The more a human being is consciously aware of his role as the Crown of Creation, the more readily and succinctly this works. But that’s not how it is to begin with.
To begin with in life, a human being sees everything as separate. Chance and nature are deemed to be in control. What happens is deemed to be unpredictable and generally disconcerting, so you’re always on guard, because a human being who is unconscious sees himself as separate from his environment, and sees himself to be kind of a victim of circumstances.
Slowly this changes. To begin with, the effect seems more coincidental, that you get a break or something, that something happens that seems to go along with how you are, or something. In other words, little by little a human being begins to see themselves intertwined with life in some mysterious way.
And then, eventually, you come to recognize and learn that this connection seems to stem from the heart, not from the mind, because a heart that is awakened is able to touch life, while the mind, which is a function of understanding, is based upon input such as the five senses that interact with manifestation. That way of being is seen to be a shallow, lower-self awareness.
The higher self opens up as the heart center intertwines, and, to begin with, that intertwining is seen as something that has kind of a type of natural and instinctual quality, much like animals, to it, and over time this awareness deepens and is able to touch and affect even dense outer objects.
And as man becomes more aware of how the principle of oneness exists, the alignment through the heart deepens. When the heart opens up the brain, a knowingness from deep within awakens simultaneously. The insights flash automatically. There is a sense of being able to operate outside of time.
This occurs initially as a split second, in a split second kind of thing, in which you are both inside and outside of time. In such a moment a person is able to see vibrational outcomes. You have a sense of what’s going to unfold for the future, bringing the future to the present, in other words. This insight happens so quickly that, to begin with, the human being calls it a flash of intuition. Until a human being is able to realize that they are able to affect manifestation continuously, they explain the instantaneous inflective knowingness as an accident, or as a type of intuition, or as something that varies and sometimes comes together as a meaningful coincidence or synchronicity.
As the separateness caused by the mind ego is even further set aside, or let go of, in terms of the need to control the physical environment, and the need of seeing manifestation as being separate from them, the inner into outer relationship awakens. I believe that the veil that separates mankind from arriving at this conclusion is getting thinner and thinner. I believe that there are souls born into this world who, at a very young age, already understand the principle of life deep within. For such a person who is born this way, the awakening process is just a matter of alignment.
In the dream, I saw myself affect an outer event. What happened took me by surprise. I also noticed that the effect could arrest the flow, just from the way an inner presence was able to emanate. What I saw is that I have a huge responsibility in that the changes that are effectuated need to be positive or, in other words, the effect is to an overall well being consciousness.
I also notice that the intertwined simultaneous effect arose from another level of my being, in other words, not the one that’s associated with the mind, and the senses, and the ego. For lack of a better word, I am caught in this connection to the world soul and, as a human being caught up with a Crown of Creation flow, the transformation comes from deep within into life. When this is possible, the outer is seen as being an extension of the inner. When this is natural, the differences between inner and outer fall away.
As this further evolves consciously, time and space fall away as the essence for all there is opens up. It is hard to believe, from our mind ego senses that keep pointing out separation, that when the separation goes away, time and space dissolves, and it is as if nothing is going on. The closer we come to this consciously, the more we are able to see that everything that our mind perceives to be separate is but an illusion.
