2231788_8b81_14Whenever we have a great idea, or we begin a new project, we have been inspired by our initial reasons and intentions. Yet, often, as we proceed, and find ourselves deeper and deeper in the reality of the work, we lose sight of those original ideas and inspirations, and we end up compromising the vision of what we are trying to do. So, in a project, as in our life, it is important to continually revisit the reasons why we are doing what we are doing, and the principles behind those reasons. In fact, the more we reaffirm our original purpose, the more potent our focus will be in achieving our goal.

John: I drill down on something in a way that I hadn’t done before. Normally I talk about the breath, in some sense, but this time I talk around the breath, as opposed to looking at it in some way, I talk around it. In other words, I talk about the stillness point.

So, in the meditation dream, I observe myself as being a person who embodies vibrations. So I’m starting off now as somewhere carrying yet an out-breath quality. These vibrations I look at and look at to see what is wanted. I note that the vibrations I embody are seeking to come into manifestation, in other words, to be embodied.

So, initially, the vibration is not even in the shape of dough. In other words, first of all you have to get it into something like dirt, or dough. And when it takes on the substance of, say, dough, it then needs to reflect or be shaped into a result that is deemed complete. In other words, what dough completes to is maybe a cookie or something. And I’m using this as kind of like an imaged example of how you bring the inner into the outer.

But doing it, this is still an aspect of out-breath in manifestation. So it is deemed to be relatively easy, when there is substance from the vibrations, to reach a resolution, or determination, with regard to the substance of our being. What is confusing is I went back into the vibrations, in the meditation dream, and had to make a sort of rhyme and reason out of the vibrations. I was still bewildered until I took the vibrations almost as a rising up from having taken it down into manifestation.

But I was confused about the vibrations, initially, until I took them into manifestation and created something to identify with. Such identifications drain me of a vital dynamic. Little by little I was able to go back to the beginning. In other words, I came down and then recognized you have to go back to the beginning because it drains you out of a dynamic.

And so this is still an attention that is placed upon the space, actually, of the in-breath turning to the out-breath. The beginning is where the vibrations originated; they came out of the stillness there. The beginning is the stillness.

And so what I’m talking about, in terms of this focus, is the stillness point where the in-breath turns to the out-breath; that is where I see myself retracing.

And then you can do it the other direction, which is there is a time when I cannot stand how limiting it is to be a compositive substance, in other words, you feel the weight and the burden of having to carry yourself as something that’s composited and dense, and you’re holding that denseness together as if you have to preserve it. That’s like the nature of the physical body. It has kind of a life orientation to it that holds your focus. And, when it’s like that, and you’re able to actually note the hopelessness of something like that, is when the heart yearns to be free of this state.

And so when you experience it that way, now you’re talking about the interval where the out-breath turns to the in-breath. So what is going on is, in the meditation dream, I experience the breath as being a delirium. And, in the meditation dream, I didn’t dwell upon the journey of the breath, per se. Instead, I kept, and maintained, a looking for the reference of stillness.

To begin with, this was a going back in to the interval of in-breath to out-breath, in other words, backtracking the vibration now. In other words, the vibration comes into a thought, the thought comes into more thoughts, those thoughts then come into what it becomes, then, a collective consciousness of manifestation.

And what I’ve done is I’ve gone backwards to that, even taking the vibrations and making the vibrations still, and that’s the in-breath to the out-breath. And then there was the opposite flow. When the vibrations had come into a result that’s in manifestation, and it’s like I’m trapped there in a denseness, so you have to shake off the denseness because the out-breath has come in and got caught, and taken all that down. And it’s like you’ve come so far that you’re now in a denseness.

And so what happens there is, at some point, you have to be able to denote inside yourself that you’re uncomfortable being wrapped up as a denseness – and you seek a letting go of this linear beingness. And that is when you’re able to come to a letting go at the end point, or i.e., at the interval of where the out-breath turns to the in-breath. In other words, that’s when you’re able to note the pain of things, and it’s kind of a sweet pain because you’re able to denote a longing there, in that aspect of kind of a subtle, split-second stillness.

So upon adhering to stillness is to be free of the breath. When free of the breath, there is no journey. There is just stillness. And this is all that everyone wants.

rqwetionWhen we get advice from others, do we follow it? The answer for most would be: sometimes, if I agree with it. Any advice we get in the outer world will always have a bias and an agenda, which then meets our biases and agenda. And mostly we are not conscious of this effect. Our dreams also give us guidance and advice, yet the images just show us where we are and what we are dealing with, leaving us to choose our own direction. Of course, our dreams also have an agenda: they are always trying to help us fulfill our human possibility.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: What I remember about my dream is that it felt like others, and I, were living somewhere where we were given the ability to do our routines in a certain way. And however I had set up that routine, in terms of how it pulled things to you, or how you did things, I knew I had done this before.

Then I’m kind of trying to study the results, and the way other people have set up just how you go about these routines, and how you pull things to you. And I feel like the way I’ve done it either doesn’t rack up enough points, or it’s not as efficient as it can be; and I know I’ve gone through this before, but I’m a little frustrated. So I’m talking to someone because it feels like I want to change it so it’s more efficient, or so I get a different result.

I know there was more to it than that, but it was about all I could pull out.

John: The schematic that’s coming down, or opening up, is that the stuff that we’re going through, whatever it is in the outer, we always know that the outer somehow reflects what is taking place on the inner. We kind of know that, but it’s getting more and more apparent that it’s like that.

So when you have a dream and you have a certain vibrational element in it, as it becomes more and more apparent that there is something of a transformative flow coming from inner into outer, it becomes more and more apparent of a recognition of this somewhere else, which means that the barrier between something that is occurring in the outer, and something that is opening up in the inner, is becoming thinner and thinner.

And, ordinarily, for the average person, they go through and they do things in the outer and they tend to think that the way the weather is, and the way this is, and the way that is it all has to do with circumstances and fate – and they don’t realize that the way you’re meant to look at the outer is you’re meant to look at the outer in terms of what it portrays is going on in terms of you – from inside yourself.

In other words, there’s something about a human being that is tied to orders and guidance. And so, initially, you just think that you’re going around and you’re doing whatever it is that you’re doing, and you’re doing that just for shits and grins in terms of what is interesting to you. And it kind of stays on that level to begin with, but after awhile you come to realize that everything that you do goes back and reaches to some depth within, in which something is correspondently inflecting into the outer.

In other words, to begin with, the outer just appears to be something that is functioning with a whole other level of inflection. But, ultimately, the outer becomes something that is a blueprint carried across vibrationally, from the inner, so much so that as you dream you can see something that is extremely, extremely clear inside of yourself, and can you wake up that something that’s extremely, extremely clear inside of yourself? Can you wake it up so that it is also unfolding? And the recognition of that unfolding is an outerness, and you can see the outer context of something that is an inner awakening, or quickening. That’s what you’re dreaming.

And so, it’s funny how that was the theme. Probably the simplest way to present it is that there comes a point in time when a person comes to realize that they receive guidance in the dreaming. Before the dreaming is something that operates in kind of another level, that can seem separate from a capacity of inner unfoldment, in terms of the outer. In other words, the outer can seem distinct from the inner, such that the inner is something that hints, or tries to speed up, or tries to quicken something in terms of an outer capacity. And yet you see yourself as functioning in an outer capacity.

Instead, what you have to come to do, is you have to see that the outer capacity that you’re functioning is a closer blueprint to the vibration of something that you are aware of inside of yourself than you realize, and that as you become more conscious you come to realize the two coming together. But you’re at a point now where what you see inside, when you open your eyes you don’t see it on the outside. But it will come to a point where what you see on the inside when you open your eyes you’re going to see it on the outside as well. That’s the inner and the outer coming together as one, and so that’s kind of the theme.

In other words it’s introducing a little component that, for some reason, one is refusing to look at. In other words, it’s one thing to say that the inner and the outer have to come together as one, and it’s another thing to realize that what you see vibrationally inside yourself, that you can’t hold onto, the look and the appearance of something inside yourself, and when you open your eyes it’s different, means that eventually when you open your eyes it is no different, that how you are in the outer is identical to how you are in the inner.

And that the idea that something is slowed down or whatever in the outer, meaning veiled, well, when you take away the veiling it’s kind of like one and the same. In other words, it’s like you do something in the outer and it seems to function in terms of a whole other sense and mind kind of manner of being, and that’s how it is when you’re doing something in the outer is you tend to see that, you know, okay you’re not working with the unseen light, you’re working with the senses, you’re working with something that’s apparent, that is very limited.

But you will come to see that eventually they’re two close together, that that whole unseen gets played out, and practiced or effectuated, comes across. When you no longer hold onto the illusion of the outer, in terms of that being your reality, you come to realize that what you’re doing in the outer is carrying across some innerness.

Very unusual epiphany. I mean it’s easy to go along and make a great big step and say the inner and the outer come together as one and the same, but it’s another thing to note how that is, to actually have a sense of how that is, to feel that instead of conceptualize it. So you’re trying to feel it.

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. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

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.
