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.

John: Yesterday you described a very deep dream (see Wings of Angels). In it, you have a tremendous connection within, that you’re able to bring through, which touches and reflects upward vibrationally.

When you’re able to bring that vibration from the inner depths into the outer, you’re actually able to hold a space of appreciation in having done that.

What you describe is something that I wasn’t sure I believed was possible: You take, and hold, a symbolic thread of value, and cause it to be instilled into a scenario in the outer (the dream imagery).

Of course, the quality of being able to do this seems to have something to do with the fact that you were also quite touched by what you witnessed (the Blackfoot ceremony and the images of angels kneeling).

And you recognized something about the volcano, and about the hidden depths of something within you – the old village underwater – that represents something latent and unconscious in you as a reflection of the way the outer reality is now (the new village). And you’re able to carry that across and through.

When you do that you’re…  I’m trying to think of that man – Drunvalo? – yes, he speaks about this. It’s like a shamanic act where you are actually bringing something into alignment. In his case he might be aligning crystals, or he’s working with indigenous tribes to awaken and resurrect something that needs to be brought forth.

The way Drunvalo tells it, it’s crucial that these things are brought back out as a linkage, when their purpose and time is appropriate. If that doesn’t take place, and the synchronicities don’t come together (they always seem to come together) then it will be too late for Mankind, in some regard, energetically.

That may be what you’re doing. You’ve got the Indian value (the quality of appreciation of Creation) working with the sense of the subconscious innerness, at a depth within that you’re in touch with, and you’re able to carry that across and take that which is on land and touch it in some capacity, which brings it to an awakened aliveness.

It’s an awakened aliveness in that you’re doing the touching because you yourself have been touched. That’s what it means to “appreciate” the coming together.

This imagery fits in with the your other dreams, too, in that you’re finding yourself able to suddenly, out of the blue, wear something, or be something, that you wouldn’t normally see yourself as wearing or being. You just suddenly find yourself like that and it’s like a flash where you break through – a snap, or a pop, like in the first dream where you just break through to something.

That transition can be a bit much, it can be a bit shocking and a bit traumatic. When you get to the point where you can soften that, meaning to touch it with a softer and softer heart, a greater and greater appreciative heart, and recognize the beauty of it and you in that space – well, you’re blessing that space and that space is blessing you.

That’s why you have this aspect of it being angelic. But it’s an angelic that has pink associated with it, yes?

Jeane: The bodies of the costumes are made of pink feathers, and the wings are either pink or a very unusual shade of blue.

John: Blue is usually associated with tremendous insightfulness, where you just know something. Pink is associated a little bit more with the shamanic quality – more like the color of the phoenix rising from the ashes.

So we have a combination of those two having come together. The blue is on one side of the heart, in the higher self, and the pink is an appreciation color in Creation, it’s more shamanistic. It’s like red: red is shamanistic, but in your dream it’s a pink color – it’s softened down. It’s softened down because you are experiencing recognition and realization.

In other words, you’re not just using your energy as a type of power that you don’t understand – you do understand what you’re doing. It’s very touching because there’s an angelic side of you that’s able to look out over the affairs of something. 

That’s a very interesting access, or contact, that you’re able to see inside you, that becomes possible because you come to know the space with such appreciation that it causes this other thing to arise within it. Because you’ve touched that energetic, it just has to come out. It can’t stay dormant any longer – you’ve touched it.

At first it could be shocking, but then it’s just “boom!” – you’re there. When it comes out, then we can ask, “What degree of depth does it have?” From where in your subconscious are you bringing this across, and what are the greater qualities?

Then, as you keep holding this space, it keeps getting more and more angelic. In other words, you’re stroking something, in an indigenous Blackfoot way, with an appreciation that’s touching because you caught up with it. You’re no longer in so much bewilderment. 

When you get out of the bewilderment you actually develop a way of listening and hearing something that, in your particular case, can hold that space – just straight out of the blue hold the space of that.

That’s a very deep dream, and I’m not even sure I’ve been able to do it justice.

Jeane: As this next dream begins, I’m traveling in a boat to a village. I’m looking down into the light green water; I can see very deeply down into the water. Way, way down I can see the remains of an old village.

The village I’m traveling to was built to replace the village under the water. As I look around I realize that the boat is crossing the caldera of a volcano, and the entire basin has been filled by water.

I can see now that the water just comes up to the crest of the caldera and it kind of gives me the creeps to see the old village, just exactly like the new village, but under water.

It’s strange to see. I don’t want to fall over the edge of the boat, into that water, because it’s just a little creepy to me.

When we get to the village, it again seems like we’re going to travel somewhere else. I’m with a young woman and other people. We’re again going somewhere where we’ll put on a costume, only this time the costumes consist of feathers and angel wings.

Even the people from the classroom (from an earlier dream, see The Masquerade) will be putting them on. The costumes all have pink feathers on the body, and then it’s just a question of whether one chooses wings that are made of pink feathers or blue feathers. It’s an odd shade of blue actually. It shimmers. 

We’re excited, and it seems to me that there’s a short break and this young woman is going to guide me to where the ceremony is taking place. The ceremony is one of appreciation or gratitude of some kind for the angels.

On the way, the woman takes me through a building that is almost like a castle. Down a corridor I see some kneeling figures of pink with blue wings that almost feel like they’re angels, and I can see costumes that we will be wearing to the right.

The woman guides me further along a corridor – she has me being very quiet – and there I see a group of Blackfoot Indians performing.

I’m not sure how I know which specific tribe it is, but I just do. They’re dressed in ordinary clothing, but they’re also doing a ceremony of gratitude. They’re coming forward down the hall and the chief has a bundle of eagle feathers in his hand, bound to something (I’ve seen that before in real life).

He’s lifting his feet like he’s dancing, and some of the tribal members are dancing around him, and this is the way that they give thanks. The way we will give thanks involves our putting on the angel wing costumes.

But this woman, in secret and quiet, just wanted me to see the Blackfoot ceremony before we went on to our ceremony.

That’s when I woke up. It was very touching.

Tomorrow, we’ll take a look at the deeper meaning of this interesting dream imagery.
