It seems that when we become good at certain things in our life, there is a process where we learn, and grow, and practice, and hone. Yet, at the point of mastery, we are still letting go of all that work and just being in the moment of what we are doing. We switch from doing, to being. And in whatever process we can achieve that switch, we will have found a certain mastery of the flow of it. And never is that more true than in our spiritual pursuit, where we won’t find our way through understanding the journey only with our brain, but when we begin to live the process with the whole of ourselves.

Jeane: Okay, one dream that I had, that I seem to keep coming back to, it was like I was studying these dots that were in-between two lines, or sometimes they were just out there. But somewhere you knew there were some lines that were boundaries for them.

And what these dots were, and they usually came in pairs, but I’d see at least four of them at a time, is that they would be where you would hook up like a sewer line, or some type of a water line, and they were supposed to be hooked up two at a time.

Well, everybody had their ideas about this, and sometimes people would just hook up to one of them, and they didn’t hook up two at a time. They just didn’t quite hook them up right, and then they’d wait to see how it worked. And I would just keep studying this to see, well, did it work if they tried it that way? Or do you hook up two or more at a time? Or, okay, if we do just go and hook it up the way somebody wants to try, is that going to work, or isn’t it going to work?

And it felt like I would go back and forth studying this and see. Wait, okay, we tried it with just one, is that going to work? As far as I know you’re supposed to do it this other way, the way they’ve already been laid, and I spent a lot of time doing that.

John: The step that one’s being asked to take, at this conference, is to let go of how things work and just go ahead and plug in to a natural flow. That is the way the human condition is able to function in an overallness that’s impossible to sort out. That is so much that it leaves one, by comparison, the condition that one’s in, remains always trying to sort something out, always fumbling about.

And so what you’re doing is you’re taking the principle of an overallness, where you have the energy lines and everything, and you have an ability to catch up with that which is a little more profound than the average person is capable of doing, and you’re able to recognize that there is a way of delving into a flow, or into the depths of that; there is a naturalness there.

And you see the naturalness in composites of four. When in a composite of four, that’s in an ordering in which there is a naturalness, in which you’re able to surrender and flow. But you also note all that’s there, and you can try this way, and that way, the variables, and when you do that you find yourself having to struggle, and contemplate how this can be, and how that can be – which means that you’re making things overly complicated. Because it’s meant to just be a natural flow. When it’s just a natural flow it doesn’t matter what right or wrong is, or anything like that. It’s just a natural flow.

The isolation of things happens when one tries to comprehend how something should be. And you can develop an amazing kind of understanding about it, but that doesn’t necessarily go anywhere, when you can just have the natural flow, if you just surrender to that.

That’s why Lewin is saying that there’s only three things going on: there’s prayer, there’s meditation, and then there is the dhikr, the attention to the name of God, an energized charged condition. And it’s charged by something that’s sourcing from the absolute, or sourcing from the innerness of innerness. In other words, it’s not just a human being anymore.

In other words it’s like, it’s a common misconception, and was kind of thrown out there initially by Lewin, that a teacher is a person just one step further on the path. The path is endless. You just have to flow. You have to let go.

And Lewin is no longer looking at himself as just a mere teacher. He’s actually referring to himself as the guru, and a guru is a very significant term. To be a guru you can’t have the personal intertwinements that could throw something haywire, or off. You have to bring in the full transmission.

And so I’m looking and realizing that, yes, it can be kind of interesting to try to understand why it is that things get pulled and tugged this way, and that way, and there are people here who are overwhelmed by kundalini energy and such, but that’s part of the process, that’s part of the tugging, that’s part of the download that’s happening, and they will sort that out.

There is a greater design towards sorting it out. One can take and look at trying to understand that, just like you can try to look to understand all of the energetic points that lie in between two parallel lines, two Ley lines of life. You can look to try to understand that, but the understanding of that, by going from this, to this, to that, to that, as opposed to holding one’s self in a wholeness, taking each one on as a wholeness, as a greater overallness – and you can do that with the dhikr. You can hold that overallness by a certain quality that you can touch that with, with the dhikr.

But if you lose that vibration, then you can still try to needle along, but you’re going one at a time, two at a time, and you’re messing around in which you are actually tearing yourself up if you attempt to do that – and you’re making this whole thing complicated.

Because what that image is also about is a means of being able to delve in. You have this in-between, and this vacuous space in-between is something you could delve into like water. You can go to the depths of something there, but you’re not going to go to the depths trying to figure it out.

Like the gal I was talking to the other day, wonderful, wonderful person, but is trying to understand the meaning of what it is that she senses in order to find a sense of peacefulness for herself – and you never can find that peacefulness. That kundalini energy that you have will sort itself out, if you surrender. You have to surrender to a naturalness; a naturalness that flows within.

Your human condition works when it works in that capacity. It doesn’t work when it is constantly having to follow a path, or to try to be in a particular way, or to have a grasp of something in a particular light of understanding. Those lights of understanding get in the way of the heart.

756452It is easy to think that it is our uniqueness that separates us from the crowd, or that makes us different. But that uniqueness is really best fulfilled as a part of the whole, as a thread in the tapestry of life. When we make our life completely personal, we detach ourselves from the whole, and from the energetic flow that is the wholeness. We thereby lose the connection and support of the energetic unfolding – the everything that’s trying to happen – and end up in a dead-end path of our making. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in the meditation dream, I find myself in a setting in which everything is provided. I cannot imagine, or anticipate, there can possibly be more – and yet there is. It’s as if a blind spot, in the universe of my beingness, exists, as there is more, and more.

In the dream, as I am coming out of a building, feeling good about everything, this person who suddenly just kind of walks on by amicably, without any pretense or anything, that I’ve never seen before, and this person just seems to flow in a way that opens life up, just by this natural flow.

In other words, it’s more at ease. And until this instant happened, life was such that there was like nothing new under the sun. In other words, everything was accounted for, and there might have been a certain way that you felt contained by all of that, but now the whole process changes as a naturalness, never seen, or not in my awareness, is suddenly there. And it affects the possibilities as a consequence of what looks like an effortless unfoldment and movement.

The meaning is, this is a dream that’s suggesting that a deeper revealing is now possible, as I have gone in my way of being about as far as possible, and now something has to shift to open something up as a greater dynamic.

Whatever I did in the direction that I went has paid kind of a price of admission, or something, so there can be this revealing, based upon an unexpected shift. And, in the shift, there is a quickening to catch up with what heretofore had been unseen and unknowable.

And what’s especially fascinating about this shift is I can tell that this new way is just getting started, and that I can no longer rest on what I went through, because, what was, now suddenly seems stiff in comparison to this. In other words, things that are making sense suddenly make more sense. So how one was proceeding kind of wilts away.

And then in the sleep dream, a woman introduces me to her friend, who is another woman I have never seen before. And this friend of mine, woman, comments in some nuance way about a product this woman is bringing into life, that she represents this product. And then suddenly I get handed a tube.

I think I get handed this tube by my friend, and it has no markings at all on it. And then I’m told by my friend that this woman has 30 stores that sell this. And so I’m looking at the tube with no markings, and I immediately say, “Well, is this some sort of hand cream in this tube?”

And that’s acknowledged, and then this woman says that this product here must have gotten out of the vat before it was ready, meaning it hadn’t  been completely packaged yet, and had to go through a certain protocol before it could be distributed.

So, as I am standing there, she is pressing her face into mine, as her way of trying to explain what is askew. And you usually have normal boundaries, you know, distance, and is going on and on with regard to the changes, or what needs to be, and what all of this is about. Well, I’m distracted by what I figure is a really weird image, her face smashed into mine like that, as she’s trying to explain.

In other words, you stand back with a little distance. You just don’t overpower like this. This is an odd sensation. As brilliant as she is, she doesn’t seem to notice that she doesn’t have good spatial sense, and I don’t know what to do about this without breaking the flow and disrupting the communications.

Meaning: The theme is about how naturally, nonchalant, and amazing the unfoldment is, if I am able to step aside from petty nuances. This is a revealing going on that is nonstop, but to take it in, under the outer spatial conditions that prevail, a step back is needed. And when I take the step back, I realize that I am able to let go and take in, in life, more than I realized was possible, meaning that one is able to go beyond the defensiveness of one’s nature that one had been carrying around as a demeanor.

And then in this last sleep dream, I’m in a room, it’s like a room and it has a big table in it. And it’s like I’m with a teacher and a group, and we’ve all filed into this room, and I pick up a hose to water, and start spray washing this large table in the room, the top of it, cleaning it off.

And then the teacher, at some point, says if there’s anyone else who would like to chime in, or jump in, to step forward and take the hose. The table is pretty much clear when someone takes the hose out of my hands, and, of course, my attention is upon the table, so I’m not sure what’s going on.

In other words, I don’t realize yet that there are other things that can be done to shape and design what is needed. So this person then starts doing something with the hose to something else in the room, and then this person explains why they’re doing that to this thing in the room. And suddenly I notice, one by one, each person identifying an aspected need, as if there is a cosmic list, and that they then would be taking the hose one by one in terms of affecting something that’s to be anew

And what impresses me is that, in the unfoldment process, and as a result of what each of us has a natural way or role in terms of this process, what impresses me is how the heart, which normally feels a weight when one is kind of on their own or something, and there’s a waywardness, there’s a wonderful effect that rises to the heart because everything is in a design – it works – comes together as a whole.

The meaning is, the dream is pointing out that there is so much more to shape and shift an atmosphere. There’s much more than I realize. In other words, I’m used to looking at my own particular thing, being overwhelmed by even just that. What I’m meant to recognize is that I am part of an overall unfoldment process. And that where I’m at in this is just an aspect of a much bigger picture, able to participate in an aspected role in the overallness.

It’s an awakening in that overallness, and it’s in conjunction with a group, the whole, of which I am not everything, but I am integral in what I do. And in catching up with all of that, in coming into conjunction with all of that, the heart is fulfilled as the support and coming together enriches the whole. And what occurs shapes and lifts up life such that each part, of each step, of us, in a process, touches the heart.

So that was the coming together of the three dreams. It kind of starts off in which you come to realize that you kind of have a blind sight to the fact that whatever it is that you’re doing, that that isn’t so important, and that there’s so much more to take place.

And then when you come to realize that, you lose the image of yourself, the identity of yourself. But the key, then, is to get into the right cadence of ebb and flow, and then when you get into the right cadence of ebb and flow, you find, then, all of a sudden there is this huge wholeness, or overallness, of which each of us, in our own unique connective inner way, has a place within that. In other words, we’re not just all independent, we’re intertwined.

screen-closeupAre we ever truly ourselves? This dream looks at the subtlety of the mechanisms we use in dealing with life, in the sense that we’ll filter the way we are to accommodate the feelings of others, or speak differently because of the expectations of others, or even change our opinions because we’re hoping for a certain outcome. All these subtle maneuvers take us away from our natural state, and our natural ability to respond. And we can’t really be in the flow of things, if we are not being natural to ourselves. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So I just remember one dream that kept repeating, in a way. It’s like I was observing life in North Korea. Because the dictator wanted to control everything, it felt like there was this woman that kind of wanted to… I don’t know if she became a chicken, or she was cooking chicken, but it was like you didn’t want the dictator to know if you got a chicken that was like a certain weight, or anything.

And I was kind of showing them how to hide that by chopping apricots up when you cooked the thighs of the chicken, or something, that you could kind of hide it in there. It was almost like she was the chicken and, you know, when she was cooked you could hide the apricots in the legs and not show that you had gotten a chicken that was as fat as maybe what the dictator would have. Because if he thought anyone had something that was better than what he had, then he would kind of come down on them. So I was trying to show them how to conceal that. But then the dream just kept repeating.

John: So what’s going on in this dream, that’s repeating, is you’re trying to get beyond this aspect of what’s called a frustration, or it’s a tension, or a reactive anxiety.

And you’re trying to look at a particular quality of this frustration, tension, or anxiety, a particular way in which it inflects, as an effect, that is your particular dilemma, or mannerism, by which you prevent, or keep, a certain quality of the secret substance that permeates through everything in the outer – or the inner coming into the outer – that keeps that from happening.

And when you feel a little tension, or a little frustration, in this case it’s like a chicken, or it’s like a type of fear. In other words, it’s a qualm. It’s a qualm of some sort that keeps this from being brought directly through.

In other words, this is all in keeping with the subject matter of: how do you work with things that are subtler, and subtler? And what you have is you have, for example, in the outer you just have the outer as a kind of density. And you relate to that outer density in terms of how you see things with the five senses. And the way you see things with the five senses is caught in this motif of seeing matter as matter – and staying strictly on that level.

But there is matter in sound, and there’s matter in light, and that the level of bringing inner into outer involves having to incorporate a bringing together of the sight of light into matter.

Now that sounds very, very strange. Well, because it’s a different kind of sight that we’re talking about. In other words, when you feel a vibration, something is going on in the outer and there is a way that it is. And then, on a vibrational level, you denote something more, you can denote whether something is a little this way, or a little that way.

Well, you denote it by a type of sight, but it’s not a type of sight, per se, of the senses. It’s a type of sight of a higher-self light of sight. So, in other words, if you’re in a room and you see something in the environment, in terms of the way something is, that causes you to hold back, or to measure what you say, or however that is, because you can sense something more than what’s apparent on the surface, and you can see the degree to which somebody can hear something, or recognize something, or you see what’s going on in a deeper way of something moving around in the nature, or the atmosphere – that’s a type of sight.

It’s a vibratory type of sight. Now what keeps this vibratory type of sight from becoming a substance, per se, in other words going into matter, making it manifest, is whenever you have any kind of friction, and we’re talking about a kind of friction that has to do with fear, that has to do with anger, that has to do with frustration, that has to do with things that have a denser mannerism about them.

So what your dream was doing, is your dream is reverbing back and forth, and back and forth, to try to see how it was possible to have a condition in the overall. And you were setting it up in a scenario in which, if you were to have this condition in the overall, you would have to have this condition in a way so that it didn’t cause a disturbance – because you were in North Korea. And whatever it is that you were able to have in that density had to be done in such a way so that it wouldn’t draw a type of attention that would cause it to appear that you were usurping the powers that be.

So what’s the powers that be, when you’re talking about the outer? It’s the density of things. And so the powers that be in the density of things is the idea, and the understanding, of what’s going on. What brings the inner into the outer is that you have to have that spatiality inside of yourself in order for it to occur in the outer. And, as you embody that and carry that inside yourself, that becomes the atmosphere all around you, as well. But, to the degree to which you’re responding, or reacting, to some heebie-jeebie, or frustration, or mannerism like that, some qualm, is the degree to which you blot that out.

Now why is it that that blots it out? Well, it blots it out because it slows it down. It slows it down in keeping with the density of things, and when something is slowed down in keeping with the density of things, it then goes back to the modality of the physical, and the senses, and the lower-self senses. And so you lose the secret substance that goes at a faster speed, that actually is a type of substance. In other words, all aspects of density have a terminal nature to them. They exist, for only so long, before they crumble back to dust.

Everything is that way in the outer. And on levels of light there’s a terminality, too, but it’s a long, long, long one because that’s such a subtle substance that it’s not like you actually see it, but yes, you kind of do by being able to experience it from within, vibrationally enough, that it’s like a type of seeing because it just permeates through.

Your complexity in the dream was, as something is coming through, to what degree does it need to be kept, held, or maintained, or protected in a particular way, in terms of yourself? And you’re using, as your screening mechanism, a type of fear, a type of chicken, a type of presentation, orientation that reverbs. The reason why it reverbed and reverbed is, by bringing that into the equation, you brought in something that kept it from just naturally being.
