The field is affected by the stream, the stream is affected by the hill, the hill is affected by the wind and rain. No one aspect is free from its interactions with everything else in its environment. Often, though, we humans look only at a singular aspect or item, and try to solve or resolve something from just that viewpoint. It’s a process that rarely gives us sustainable solutions. The more we can embrace, from within, the more we will be in sync with what is around us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
John:And then, in my sleep dream, I can feel a greater capacity is existing and I am making the choice to hearken to that. What I am harkening to is outside the scope of the familiar parameters that I’m used to relying upon.
The familiar patterns that I’m used to relying upon and sorting out and whatnot, and contending with, have a certain choked effect upon the heart, but that’s just the way it is when one is dealing with things in an outer context way.
Which is the same thing as saying that what I know, externally speaking, is that those parameters where I approach the outer reflective world are such that anything that I pull off is riddled with various kinds of pills for every given equation. Others tend to think that this is important – in all of the ways that you sort things out in the outer – and that I am crazy when I seek from an intangible depth within a greater capacity than a dependency of the pill.
I have come to know that the dependency upon pills is a panacea that leads to more pills until there are pills upon pills and the result veils off a sensitivity to a naturalness whereby I feel the greater capacity from within.
The reason for the dream is to point out that I need to trust in, and let go to, what I feel and know as real from within. And, by within, I mean this is kind of something that is inside one’s nature, that you can’t put your finger on, that feels the capacity, and therefore can sort something a little bit with this sense of capacity. And so it can’t buy into the projections that are thrown at one’s self, or, saying it like I wrote here, even though this isn’t a black-and-white, nailed down, outer external knowingness.
So, by being able to access a feeling within as a quality of a greater spaciousness and heartfulness, I’m able to go beyond the outer appearance and reflections that shrink a person and take them out of a greater capacity. And when one is able to do this, with a rhythm of their nature, they are capable of touching all of manifestation.

As we are seeing, there is a cost to the separation and the distancing of people and things. It might be more useful to always look to understand how things are connected, and how they interact with other things, and, in doing so, we can see that to separate any one thing out is to lose the perspective we need to work with it and change it. Bringing everything together might be a better model for the future, as opposed to making infinite distinctions.

Jeane:I just remember my last dream. In this dream, I seem to be working someplace where we work and then we kind of go up a level, and go into a room, an open room, but it’s just up a few feet from the rest of the room that’s like a dining room. We all sit around a rectangular table.
When we sit around the table, initially, there seems to be a lot of tensions going on. And then one of the young women there reveals that she’s gay. And, after a few minutes, it’s like another young woman there, who I think is like the daughter of somebody who owns this place, suddenly comes to the realization that she’s gay, too.
And, during all of this, it’s like some stuff got spilled on the table. And she’s wondering if this is us being upset with her – the reason things got spilled or mixed around. And I make a comment that, no, it’s about the tension from everybody trying to not reveal what was so, as opposed to the upset being about what has been revealed. Although I realized that her father, who’s not there, that maybe he’s one of the owners of the restaurants or something, might have trouble with the whole issue, particularly because she’s kind of taken time from when she should be working right now to stay at the table because she wants to sort this out with all of us sitting there.
At the same time, I’m realizing that, whereas with the other girl, she was very aware, with this one, who’s her close friend, this is more of just like a revelation to her, too, and that we need to take a few minutes to kind of reassure her. At the same time this is causing some tension because she’s supposed to be back at work. That was the dream.
John: What you have to do with this dream is you have to take out the action of the appearance of the dream and look at the transition, vibrationally, that is behind what is a sequence of outer appearances, or mannerisms.
And when you do, you realize that what you’re perceiving, and what you’re seeing in front of you, is a far cry from the way that there is this inner state that is spinning you. It’s like, can you catch up with how this just spins you?
You can take and you can look at and have an epiphany over here, of an insight. And then all of a sudden that leads to another epiphany over there as an insight. And you can see that this epiphany of an insight is different than the depth of the epiphany of the insight over here. And so you could easily have a sense as to how this to that and how that works, as an importance and as a flow, or you can suddenly drop even that spaciousness of pulling those two together, you can even drop that spaciousness and fall into the recognition that the whole thing is being spun.
And that, in the spinning of this over here, and that over there, you end up with something that just melts together, where something gets spun and all of a sudden it changes. This is what this is like, only its on a vibrational level. And that you could take and notice, you have the recognition inside of yourself that it’s more than this and that, and then all it requires, then, is another little letting go kind of subtle drop.
And you’re able to have those two areas, those two places in which there is some question, or bifurcation, or nuance, or aspect in terms of reaching between this and that, it just spins. And the whole thing becomes one orientation, not an orientation over here that is kind of interesting, and an orientation over there that’s more profound, and that you sort out this which is interesting from that which is profound to come up with the differences to why this is to that and that is to that, as if you’re able to schematicize the unfoldment.
Instead, rather than trying to steer, or schematicize, or to control, or to have a piece of the way you hold on to the unfoldment, as if holding on to the unfoldment is where it’s at. You just suddenly allow yourself to be spun. And then when you’re spun, it’s like you’re spun into something. And it’s no longer visible in the form that it had been – and goes into something else.
As it’s spun, all the features fall away, and it becomes something else that is just there; but no features anymore. They get spun out of it. That’s the vibration behind what you’re dreaming, that you suddenly catch, or fall into, in one fell swoop. If you catch up with it, if you feel it, if it comes across in a way that is still having to sort something out, or to recognize the distinction between this place and that place, then you’re not really quite letting go. You’re still trying to put the whole thing into your own personal cognition.

In the game of Telephone, we know that when the message reaches us it will be terribly distorted, with, perhaps, the entire meaning changed. If we ask ourselves: what is the purpose of life?, we will find the same problem, because we humans have been getting the message wrong for thousands of years. So what do we do, and what can we trust? We can trust in the universe, and we can trust in our human design, two things that are still operating as they were meant to do and be. In the case of our design, we simply are not using it correctly, because all our sensitivities are part of our ability to connect to the universal – from which we can receive all the guidance we need.

John:So, in the meditation dream, my attention is upon a substance that’s getting screened through and filtered in a noticeable way. What I noticed was that there was nothing to see and report, in terms of the filtering process. It seemed that something was there, but, if so, it was so fine that there was nothing to see.
In other words, we’re constantly filtering and filtering, and what we end up extracting is extracting a mannerism, or a pattern, or a way, and then we feel that and realize that that has its qualities in which it falls apart. But there’s nothing to filter to.
If I had seen something of consequence, in which there was a reportable visibility, I would’ve had a different determination and unfoldment as memorable – which would’ve been a wrong kind of memorableness.
The meaning is this is an image in that whatever I am refining or filtering gets to a nothingness of consequence, or visibility. In other words, it’s a purification image.
And then I still stay on this, in the next one, in which the image I see is that I pay 109-degree hot water bill, which is affecting a washing machine. In other words, I pay the bill and the bill is 109 degrees and that’s okay, and the 109 degrees affects the washing machine. In other words, it’s like a symbol of completion, where you accept the temperature that exists and just face that bill for whatever it is. In other words, it’s like a message, it’s like a strange kind of advertising, too, that this is how it is.
So now I’m starting to deviate in this one. So I go into an area where I see a stream of water that’s flowing. It’s not flowing in the way that it usually flows, and it’s kind of something I can easily swim in. It’s almost like a natural hot springs, the whole length of it.
But, in this hot springs, I know that there is a dragon, and this is a wonderful, friendly, helpful, magical dragon, but the water is so low I’m wondering how the dragon can survive in this. And so I’m swimming up this thing, and swimming up this thing, like I’m trying to get the source, and, eventually, I come to an area where there’s kind of some run down buildings that’s at the head of all of this, almost as if there are rooms that you can go into and whatnot, and it’s as if that is like a change area and everything else.
This whole time I’ve been alone as I’m doing this, and, when I look outside, in the far distance I guess would be the ocean. And then water is coming across the white sands, just a very small amount, and I can’t help but wonder if the sea level rises maybe it fills this channel more, or if it goes down, then what if there’s global warming or something. Whatever it is, it can impact this, and somehow or another as it comes across these white sands in a very, very thin layer of water coming across, I guess it heats up or something and goes into these hot springs.
So I go back into these hot spring rooms. I’m all by myself the whole time, and suddenly there’s a room and there’s a whole bunch of guys in it. And they try to invite me in, and as soon as I go in there I realize there’s something strange about them. I comment about the dragon, and if the dragon does he make it to the sea? And they assume that he must make it to the sea from time to time, and I figure he has to make it to the sea because this is pretty shallow the way it is now.
So I’ve got to get away from them; these guys look strange and weird. Who knows what is apt to happen. And so I act like I’m going out to find the main river. Well I came up what was the spur that I thought was the main river, and, as I go along I walk out this way and that way, and of course I am careful to try to make sure I get away from these characters, and I come down to an area and there’s a huge river there.
Wow, where’d that come from? And as I come down at the head of the river is all kinds of people in the water, and lo and behold, that’s a hot springs. The water is hot there and all these people are just enjoying themselves, and I can just go into that amidst all of those people and be just fine.
So the nature of this is that this dream starts off in which I’m in a solitary way and, little by little, that gets one out of balance. However, there is the magical dragon that does cover this whole area and, when I’m wayward and off, the hot springs that exist, or the flow that exists, is even a little polluted, and I could see it’s not conducive to the needs for this kind of magical creature to live.
And it’s not healthy to be by myself trying to follow something as an unfoldment to the source, as if I’m going to sort all of that out on my own, because such an approach can lead to where I can see the sea, or at least the white sands coming from the sea, and the water that flows across that from the ocean access, but it flows across and is looked at in this way in kind of a bifurcated aloneness way which gets into a type of life that is dysfunctional.
To leave that is to find the mighty river, which at its pure source is healthy, and where the true hot springs of life can be. Or, as I said in another way, when I leave this imbalance I find the hot springs again, but at the head of a mighty river, and a lot of ordinary people to be with.
So this is pointing out again that my tendency is to ponder and to look at things, and find all these different variables, which will be unlimited in their nature, as a type of looking in a Solomon kind of vanity way, when doing that is a bifurcation off of what is really meant to be, which is to just hold the central vibration of a letting go, that you can hold in the dhikr of the breath, or in the prayer quality of yourself, or in the meditation. Allow all of that to come together. They work together.
Spirit energy is different forms, and spirit energy can come back to you, and is carried from lifetime to lifetime. And so you have to be careful of just catching up with spirit energy, per se, because it can have its mannerism, just like how do you address the kundalini energy that’s throwing people around, in terms of them not being able to sleep, or dream, and stuff like that? That’s something that sorts itself off in a type of letting go that they have to reach inside of themselves, and they reach that inside of themselves by holding the quality of the note of the vibration. The best thing to do would be to do the dhikr.
Next dream: I am warned ahead of time about being held up by bandits who shake people down along a road. I seem to forget this, and I end up with an old pickup truck full of gold, and hidden amidst the gold is something even more precious than that cargo.
And so it’s almost as if, in this pickup truck, with me is a bunch of these surly guys that are just kind of, you know, in the state that I’m in it’s okay, but you wouldn’t want to meet them by a road. And they remind me that it might not be a good idea to go over this area, and I get this notion that, you know, yeah, they could actually call ahead and I could be waylaid, even.
Well, to go over this area, I seem to think I need a different vehicle and I go to get into the vehicle and it won’t start, which means I’ve moved away from the truck, that’s this old beat up pickup truck, that has the gold in the back and something precious there.
And so that’s the dichotomy in this dream is, in some way, I’m attempting to be adamant in my own way, and the meaning of the dream is just to stop, and the circumstances are my clue, and I need to hold tight to where I am, and there is no need to reach out. I have at this time what I need. I just need to know how to take it in, in its entirety of my being, as is.
