IMG_6087It’s is made clear in the Bible how hard it is for a wealthy man to gain the kingdom of heaven, and there is also a long history of self-denial, poverty, and chastity throughout the religions of the world. But those are coarse proscriptions for simpler times. The point that is trying to be made is that everything we get too focused on, or too obsessed with, or too personal about, deepens our ties to a planetary life, to our physical being. And our physical being is just a house for our spiritual possibility. To live a spiritual life is to align and integrate with the universal; to align with the energetic, not the magnetic.

Jeane: I’m losing the details on the second dream, what I remember most about it, and it’s like you and I were living in it felt like a two-story apartment house, two or three story with our neighbors, and we had an apartment maybe one level below them, as well as another place where we stayed.

All I really remember about the dream is kind of a sensation of moving back and forth, and I was trying to work something out about that. I just can’t remember the details.

John: I think you’re still working with this way, this quality. It’s easy to try to call it an expanse, but it’s not an expanse, because I think you’re working outside of the characteristics, the shape and characteristics. You’re working more in relationship to there being a same/sameness about above and below, north, south, east, and west.

And so you can be in a north/south alignment, so to speak north/south alignment, or you can be in a type of above and below, or east/west, or whatever kind of direction that is alignment. It really, in terms of the way of feeling things in an overallness, does not matter. The image of how you see it tends to get in the way.

So I still think you’re working on understanding a kind of spatial letting go quality in which something is there that can’t ordinarily be there when there’s any form of cognition. And that you’re using a type of cognition to note that there is this kind of bewilderment inflections.

It’s a kind of dreaming that’s very similar to the way we first used to dream in which it was hard to understand the dynamics between a shadow aspect and the shadow aspect if you’re trying to reveal and that we needed to bring that shadow aspect into a wholeness with ourself because it really was ourself and, in doing so, come to see the energy that existed behind that.

Now it’s as if one is doing this in a whole other octave in which, instead of a shadow dynamic, you have everything that you could possibly perceive and see as either this way, or that way, above or below, expansive or contractive, or east or west, or north and south, or however it is that you could possibly characterize it, you’re having that being put up against an emptiness, a true total letting go, which means that you’re having to feel, and denote, what it’s like to have any kind of viability, visual sense oriented, or way of perceiving, one’s self viability because that gets in the way of something else, something somewhere else.

In your first dream it’s like the third way, and in this dream it’s like can you see that it doesn’t matter what kind of unit you have, or what kind of place you live in, what kind of spatiality you have, and this kind of catches you by surprise because you’re accustomed to seeing an orientation. And now it is like there is no such thing as an orientation. You could be just fine, and just as complete, and just as ordinary and be just fine and turning the page in some other regard.

This kind of understanding of things, to try to put it into kind of a different framework of perception, this kind of understanding of things is often used in relationship to the idea that those who were born in the west were born into a different kind of conditionality of opulence, and the prosperities that the west has. Our old souls, that are accustomed to having to live in a type of penance or way of being, let’s say, in the east, in which the attention was placed upon a minimal set of conditions in order to try to accentuate a depth of experience within. And that way of being in the east has the same kind of flip side limitations as the way of being in the west in which you can have a certain opulence.

Both are perspectives that are geared towards a sense of well being. The sense of well being in the east that’s like this could be something that leads to a certain unfoldment, or progression, and inner growth that goes to a particular distance but it is also, like I say, it’s a flip side of the great achiever in the west who is subrogating that energy, and aiming it into the outer, instead, and both are working with an aspect of concentration.

And so you have to get beyond the concentration in order to catch up with something more. The meditating guy that came in and thought he could be a singer had accentuated the art of concentration, but he couldn’t take it to the next levels in which things opened up and expanded again. He was caught within a progression that was accentuated with concentration.

And those who take and clamor for great, great wealth in the west, and push everything else aside rudely in order to attain that are doing that with a concentration. Those in the east that were Sadhus and such that took and moved into caves, and attempted to access something from deep, deep within, are also trying to grab something, but they’re grabbing it in the opposite direction. And there is an intent of concentration there as well.

To really break free you have to recognize that both of them, both directions, are one and the same. They’re both part of a process. You can be attached to your poverty, or attached to the quality in which you’re trying to approach something within in terms of what they do in the east, or you can be attached to how you live in the outer in the west, in terms of all the toys and aspects of things around you. And you have to learn to let go of them, or otherwise you’re caught by the conditions of that.

02222We know that there is a physical world, and we know that behind, and throughout, everything physical that there is a world of energies. And we have thousands of years of stories describing different ways these two sides have communicated, whether in the tales of elves and fairies and angels,  in miraculous visions, or ghosts, or the feel of an unseen hand in our affairs.  Yet one of the best, and most consistent, forms of this communication is our dream world, because we are connected to our unconscious which can reach much further than our conscious mind. In accessing our dreams, we gain access to a world we are usually cut off from. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: What you tend to do is, each dream in some subtle way builds. The next dream after that will build, and then the next dream after that will build.

So with three dreams, if this works, one should be able to see how they connect. Now all dreams in a given night connect, but I’m of the opinion that the states that you’re going to be going through are going to be very closely correlated. At least for a period of time they’ll be very, very closely correlated. We tend to theme inside of ourselves for a long time until we make breakthroughs.

And so the odds of us doing something like that is greater than huge differentiations, you know huge shifted differentiations. So I’m inclined to believe that your first dream is going to be correlated to your second dream, which will advance something further, to which your third dream will advance something even further. And within that is a central theme.

Here’s the dilemma for me. Somehow I have to hear, in order for this to have any value, I have to hear the vibration behind your dream. And sometimes I have to fumble about, but I will know and you will know when I hit it.

And then, as I hit it, that brings something straight through. That creates the honing. Now some deep, deep part of yourself, your higher self, already knows. It’s just that you haven’t brought it through to this side of things. But because some part of you deep, deep down knows, that if that chord is hit you will know it.

And so you start with the farthest one and in that farthest one the way this kind of works as a process is it will introduce the schematic, okay, and you haven’t processed or worked the schematic out yet. It’s just kind of a state inside of you, and it’s a leakage that was able to occur. But some part at a deep, deep, deep level is ready, then, after you’ve had this dream, that understands it to some degree, is ready now to take another step.

And so then the next night you will dream something that will add to that, in some tiny way, on the same schematic. And then the third night you will dream something that will add to that again, and eventually you create what becomes a completeness. A completeness on a degree inside of yourself, in some evolving fashion.

And then, often times, a lot of people are given a reprieve, you know like are able to kind of dance with that a bit, you know feel good with that a bit, and then comes the next shot in the jaw, so to speak, where again you have to contend with it – and it just never stops. And each thing keeps bringing you closer and closer and closer to subtler and subtler energies, which really then is more and more intertwined alignment of a beingness, of a greater and greater wholeness.

So you have all of that going on, too, and the fact that one dreams is a very, very, very big step. In the Masters of Wisdom they talk in terms of dreams about three big steps. The first step is to remember your dream. Just to remember your dream is considered a big step because, like I say, somewhere inside of you, you already deep, deep, deep down know what it means. You just can’t quite access it.

Actually, that’s the second step is remembering your dreams. The first step, of course, is breaking out of the fact that we live in a reflective world and that the reflective world is not what is real. And that even the dreamworld is reflective, but it clears the way, it speeds up the access. It’s like working with the speed of light instead of the speed of sound. It gives you a quicker access to process through things.

And then the third step is then the pulling out of the meaning behind the dreams. That takes a bit, that comes later. When it came to the Khwajagan, who used to look out for the affairs of the world way back hundreds of years ago, before they went hidden and underground because the world doesn’t accept them in that capacity, before they did that, they came to be seen almost in a fearful mode, in other words, as something that had a connection with something that nobody else regularly understood – which caused them to have to withdraw, in terms of their presence, because they can’t be disturbing things and creating some sort of fear or something.

So, as you dream, and as you connect to your dreams, and as you come to understand your dreams, and that all stems from something that is screaming to come alive, and yet the way it processes across can be, in terms of the eyes of ordinariness, to be a bit bizarre, or be taken in a bizarre way.

And I say that in relationship to the fact that behind the dreams, catching up with that, is the stuff that wants to come out and, for coping purposes, one takes and adopts personalities, and mannerisms, that act as defense mechanisms, and veils, from it being too literal – because in a physical existence we’re just not accustomed to having to cope this way. And yet now’s the time when we have to.

creationdBeing on a planet, we are as far from our creator as we can get. And we are designed to awaken to the journey back. But our creator will never hit us with a lightning bolt to get us to pay attention to that fact. (Even if that happens, the message won’t be: Wake up! But it may cause a person to listen to themselves more intently.) We are meant to choose the journey because, in that choice, we are offering ourselves in service to what our creator is intending for the whole. But we are neither slaves nor robots, so it is our freedom of choice. And this causes the subtle urgings inside of us to get drowned out by louder things. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: The thing that I have been noticing is how things open up, and open up, and open up on levels. And then there is a quality in which everything has an aliveness about it. And you come to know that aliveness on all of these different levels, and then you come to start to see yourself as different, in that you’re used to trying to see yourself as having a name, and being such and so, and having a particular personality that everybody knows you under.

They know that you do this, and you do that, and you act this way, and you act that way, because that’s who you are. And so that becomes a definition that you’re caught in, collectively. Plus we have all of the collective stuff that we put on ourself, in that we function and go around and we see the world through our senses: there’s a picture on the wall over there, and that there’s four walls in the room I’m in, there’s a bed here, and there’s this and there’s that – and all of that seems separate, all of it seems different and unique.

And so, as a consequence, that becomes a level of being. And so, as a result, other things that are going on don’t catch your attention because your definition of aliveness now has a modality about it. And you’re going to have a hard time breaking any modality that you have come to adopt because everyone else sees you as that way, and so and so good luck then, in terms of a greater wholeness, or a greater oneness, catching up with that in terms of you reaching the higher side of yourself. How do you break that?

All of a sudden a light bulb went on: that direct flow coming from inner into outer comes from another higher-in-the-light place. On this path, deep down inside of myself, to try to figure this out, to try to understand this as if there is a sacred math and geometry and everything else into a flow that can be applied to where you can catch up with the God principle, so to speak, as it is in play in manifestation.

Now because I have adopted this mannerism, or this motif, all of a sudden I’m having dreams that are helping me in this area, adding and giving me information in this area. It wasn’t until maybe last night that I started to realize, aha, this is what’s going on.

Let me give you an example of how we’re influenced by this dynamic of something coming from inner into outer, that we veil ourselves away from, in order to function as so-called adults. You probably remember as a kid where you used to have this little heebie jeebie about the boogeyman. And you could even get into the imagination where you could create a whole sense that there was something like that that existed; as a kid that was very real.

As an adult, you got rid of the childish game. What if that was real? Real in the following way: that deep inside of us we really do know that everything about ourselves, the way we conduct ourselves in the outer, the way we have our nuances, the way we bicycle around things as if they’re all separate, we know that that’s all an illusion. So what would happen if you penetrated, or broke, that illusion?

Well, great fear would come in because you need that illusion. That’s when something’s coming after you, and you’re falling, and you’re going to crash, and you’re going to be destroyed. You never do hit the ground, of course, but you’re falling. That’s where you get those strange sensations. Where they’re coming from is they’re coming from a part of you that is everything, and so the fact that you’re trying to hold onto something is running a defiance against how you really know yourself to be.

And so, every now and then, you slip up. You ease up a little bit, you forget to make sure that that hammer is my hammer, and that painting is my painting, and this house is my house. You slip up a little bit and, when you let down your guard, this other slips in.

And it does one of two things to you. For the average person, when their ordered nature is disrupted, it drives them crazy, makes them very fearful. And then there are those, and we’re meant to be those, who suddenly realize that there is an aliveness about everything, there is a process that supersedes how it is that we’ve pigeonholed ourselves, that takes and directs us, and guides us, in a way that is an inner coming into outer. It’s not something that functions the other way around where we dictate what goes on.

And when it’s like that there actually really is a principle behind it all, and that you really can catch up with it. So as you start to catch up with that, then one thing leads to another and the next thing you know is you’re starting to ponder the molecular makeup of things.

Well, you notice for example that your body is kept alive by eating food, and you need to have a little greens, and a little this and a little that, a little protein, and that makes for a healthy body. And somehow or another the body refines and excretes from all of that; it gets what it needs out of that

And so on a scientific level inside of yourself you can be looking at how to go through the molecular just to the direct vibrational energy of the food that it is that you really need, instead of just eating in a dense way, and some part of you grabbing it in a way that’s very, very subconscious to yourself, and that keeps the body going with what it needs, and you don’t know how that’s done of course. And the rest of it’s discharged because you’re in a dense realm.

But I now am dreaming about how to try to understand and look at the vibration behind everything that is the direct food, without any roughage, in other words pure on pure. When you then take and you do that, and of course you’ve got to understand the first part had to do with being able to understand what’s coming and going, trying to understand the future a little bit in terms of the God principle.

And then in this next phase you’re coming to recognize that you are keeping yourself under these trances because if you didn’t stay under these trances you scare the bejesus out of yourself because you need these trances, or otherwise nothing exists, and you don’t know how to function in a mode in which nothing exists.

And so then if you can accept that maybe nothing exists, because something inside of you knows different and better and is outside of the veils, then all of a sudden, if nothing exists, then you don’t want to be taking something that’s dense and throwing that into your stomach so to speak. You want to go and get directly to the molecular and just get the pure essence. Let’s skip that step.

And so then when you skip that step, you then come full turn then back to the fact that you are held in a trance based upon the schematic that you live in. Now let’s say that the schematic you live in is you have a house, and outside the house is a tree, and this tree is leaning towards the house. And you sit there and you just spend all of your time worrying about what can happen if this tree were to fall onto the house.

Until you let go of that idea you can’t shift to another level, because that idea that that tree could fall on the house is going to victimize you. So you’re now under the spell of the tree energy. In other words, it’s like the tree played a game on you, and it has got you in its trance, that it’s going to fall on the house. And now your whole consciousness is based upon an intelligence that can’t get beyond the tree mentality.

And so I wrote up a reason behind all of this is something like this: If a person is on a mission to understand the process of how life unfolds, you know, and what’s going to happen in the future and things like that, where you find yourself having to break through the veils of things around you to let go, in other words, to catch up with the God principle, then it naturally follows then why wouldn’t you also then start to consider the molecular structure of all of life in terms of trying to get to just the pure energy?

And then, if you’re doing that, and then you realize that both animate and inanimate objects are in some way bifurcated away from the all-pervasive aliveness that is who we are, that you then start to realize that the atmospheres and such that you’re in, and the things that are affecting that atmosphere, are also steering you into a consciousness that has a control over you.

So how can you catch up with the aliveness that’s a wholeness? When in manifestation they see things separately, when experientially all of that in manifestation needs to correlate to the oneness. And so you get down to the crux of this, is to what does the word “we” really mean? And so there’s an old saying: “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”

And so the letting go really is a letting go. It’s a letting go into that something that is the beyond of the beyond. And that we have to go through this smaller than small, a fumbling about with limited faculties, that somehow or another run their course. And when they run their course they run their course by us becoming frustrated, us realizing that we can no longer feed ourself in that way.

And so when we can no longer feed ourself in that way, we reach to a need, and that need takes us outside of ourself. And as you advance according to this need, opening up from within, where you’re getting the answers from within, everything about you starts to change, too. You require different food to take in. You can’t eat the same dense food anymore. It becomes subtler and subtler. You are already getting more and more refined molecularly, energetically.

And so the key is can you read the signs of this unfolding? You have an intuition. You have a sense about you that knows, that just naturally knows, there’s something so, so, so much more. And when you really get that sense there’s something so, so, so much more, that’s when you’re ready to actually have the inner experiences, that come through, that we call the higher self.

Until then, we stay and we satisfy ourselves with our conceptualizations, in terms of lower-self motifs, and identities, and pigeonholings and all of that sort of stuff, until we just can’t stand it any longer.And you have to get to the point where you can’t stand it any longer. As long as you can stand it, then it’s going to keep happening. You only rise to that other denominator of yourself on a need-to-know basis.

And so that’s why it seems to be such a long around and around and around process because you have to get to the point where it isn’t a matter of creating a better widget way, it’s a matter of actually totally completely letting go so that something more of who and what we really are, that is everything there is, that’s the nothingness, so that that can actually come through, take hold.

That emptiness is scary. And now you’re falling, or there’s something chasing you and it’s going to get you, it’s going to do you in. Those dreams give way to not being able to find where you’re at.

Eventually that has to give way, too, to where you’re able to be comfortable with nothing – without having to have a particular definition.
