Posts Tagged ‘inner life and outer life’

In today’s dream, Jeane describes an image that raises a fundamental question: What is the reason for life? Within that question is a fundamental choice: Do we live this life for our selves (satisfying our ego), or are we meant to live it for a greater purpose within the Whole? (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

 Jeane: The next image was a little harder for me to pull out, but it feels like I’m going somewhere. It feels like maybe it’s a parade where they’re selecting Miss America or something like that. It’s going to have a beauty contest involved in it.

On my way there I seem to pick up the responsibility for this little girl. I have a friend that I think comes to help, too. The little girl seems like she’s come from a very privileged home, and is very naïve or inexperienced about certain things.

Rather than have to carry her the whole way, I decide to let her ride a bike. But I just have the parts of the bike, and I start putting it together, and it has these little copper knobs I have to figure out how to connect one part to the other and then it becomes a whole bike.

So I get the bike together – it’s actually a tricycle – but then I realize this girl had come from such a privileged background she actually doesn’t know how to ride it. So then it leaves me with a dilemma of maybe trying to get her to ride it now and then, but actually carrying her and the tricycle to the parade.

I think on the way there I have a couple of stops. I remember at one stop there’s a man that sits down and starts talking to us. He has a uniform on and even though he has a certain light about him, I’m kind of put off because I have the charge of this little girl and you don’t want little kids to talk to strangers, you know.

Then there’s another instant where I have to stop briefly at my house and have my friend watch her while I take a shower. Then it feels like we finally get to wherever the parade and the contest will be.

John: Well, it’s like looking at an older side of yourself and a younger side of yourself. In other words, you make things out of matter – the one element that’s important to making things industrially, it is considered the industrial component to making things out of matter, is copper.

The older part of yourself has learned how to function, and is functioning, in the outer world as if you can do this stuff literally. As if you can make things out of images and reflections, in other words. It is a little bit… goes around and around in circles as part of deluding one’s self, but you can do that.

The younger part of you is a part of yourself that doesn’t know how to ride the bicycle or the tricycle or whatever it is, because it sits in a state of innocence where it hasn’t yet bought into the inflection to the point where it indulges, and then when it indulges then it contends with what it’s like to mess around or play with the tricycle.

The older part of you thinks it has to take charge of this younger part of you that isn’t getting the memo, that hasn’t yet figured it out, that has to be taken care of. And that’s the game that goes on in life. The parents take care of the children, but the way they take care of them is they indoctrinate them into the outer.

And when a baby is born it identifies with the soul level, and it stays with that identification on the soul level until that ego starts to be developed in its nature. And then the development of that ego causes it to find its own way and mannerisms in terms of coping in the outer. And it’s said that a baby as it is in the in-between phase, is kind of in a type of protective security where it doesn’t hurt itself or fall down. It’s almost like it has a guardian angel over it, and then slowly but surely that even disappears.

And the child is supposed to have developed certain traits for coping purposes and it comes into taking this on on its own. As a consequence you then are caught in the outer. You described almost a depiction between some deep part of yourself that is able to be outside of the outer identifications, and then the part of you that has gotten caught in the identifications.

Then you’re seeing that you, in this state, are of the opinion that you have to indoctrinate those conditions upon the younger part of yourself as opposed to, what if the younger part of yourself had it right all to begin with, but is being compelled to be in the outer and adopt all of these traits as part of some sort of game or journey that the soul has to make?

If it’s a game and a journey that the soul has to make then why, what’s the reason? Well, the only reason that one can give is to gain a deeper sense of the divine, of the connection that one has to the Whole, to gain that in a more deepened awakened intimate sense.

That’s the only reason that one can think for that making sense, because otherwise it looks like a dirty rotten trick – and it’s the opposite. In other words, when you see it like that, you’re inclined to think that what’s going on is the opposite of what should be going on. And yet what’s to say that you can’t have the awareness of the essence, like the child in terms of its soul, in terms of an encompassing quality that sweeps in and takes in everything in the universe, and then also hold that, maintain that, carry that, emanate that into the outer in which you have everything all defined and confined?

Who’s to say that you can’t somehow or another do both? If you are able to somehow or another do both, then from the state that is confined and defined and identifying with things, there is a great sense of reverence and appreciation to the greater Whole of itself, that is everything.

And that would be getting closer to what is the essence. That would be the means of the essence of being able to experience that essence while in a human body, so to speak. That’s kind of the game.

That’s why following dreams is so difficult, because what you tend to see in a reflection could cause you to draw a whole different conclusion, could cause you to draw the conclusion that there is something about the child that’s amiss that has to be indoctrinated into the world that you’re in.

And what if it’s the other way around? In other words, the whole spiritual journey process is not based upon the teacher taking and showing an acuity about this, that, and the other in the outer. Instead, the teacher reflects the ability to let go of it all and therefore what comes across is a huge inner depth that is free – and that inflects across. A purity like that inflects across.

So we accept this under those conditions, but we don’t accept it when it’s portrayed as little child to us as adult, kind of thing. We find something wrong with the little child, but if we find something wrong with the little child, then why don’t we find something wrong with the teacher who takes us back to that essence?

John: Tell me again what the masculine figure was doing in your dream (see The Mother Ship).

Jeane: Well, the mother ship is in one area (to the right), and the man in his spaceship is over to the left. I’m kind of off to one side, and his mother is in between. She’s dispensing supplies from one ship to his ship, and then maybe to my ship.

John: Oh. So, what you’ve just imaged is the idea that the mother ship is where you get your direct orders. That’s where you get the impulse of what is meant to be. You’re not receiving those impulses yet, because you’re still outside that system.

However, you have in place a way to connect to the mother ship that’s an in-between state, just as in the outer life you can interact with a teacher to help with your connection.

Jeane: Yes, his mother is the one that’s having trouble with our move. I can get the miscellaneous smaller items directly from the mother ship, but there are certain larger supplies that have to come through his mother.

John: Right. In your description, the mother is the heart. What you’ve just imaged is that you’re actually getting the smaller supplies directly from the higher source, yet in order to get the connection that you truly need, it has to go through the heart, and the mother figure is a reflection of that.

This is a dilemma for the spiritual teacher in that each person has their own connection, or higher calling, or some quality that, as they get spiritually aligned, will get linked, or activated, to a sense of knowing that arises in their nature, and that is supplied or fed directly from the galactic.

When that process occurs there is an inner recognition of it. The inner recognition of this connection then becomes known to the teacher – that the person is being provided something from deep within, as “orders” from the universe, in a modest or minor way.

What this does is set in motion something that pulls at the heart of things, which flows through the teacher. The teacher sees this and recognizes that they have to facilitate the next step. The student is out on a limb during this period and the teacher has to sense that.

Then the teacher is compelled to facilitate the greater galactic unfolding of the student. This always occurs by the signs of things coming up on the horizon. As they come up, they suggest a next step in the unfolding process that the student is on, even though the student doesn’t know where they’re leading.

The mother of it all, who is the teacher, and is the heart in this case, is intended to see this and support it. So at this particular point in time, you’re in this in-between zone where the degree of support that is required is still to come.

You dreamed about the spiritual journey. You did it in terms of a system in which everything is complete. You did it in regards to the overall schematic. You had the beckoning of little things that caused minute shifts from the galactic that the heart needs to recognize.

What is spinning out from the mother ship of the galactic, or from the point that is the heart of hearts, is the unknowable above. The heart (the mother figure) has to acknowledge that (facilitate the move), and that idea is also embodied in the relationship with the teacher in terms of the flow and spiritual process in this lifetime.

The teacher, being the heart of things, is considered the love principle that moves things in life. The teacher is linked to creation, and therefore has to give the student, through the heart, that which is needed for the primary unfolding to occur.

This leads to more than can be imagined (that’s why you are awaiting further instructions, or the larger supplies), because the initial precursors are allowed to be there as trigger points, or hints, for the heart of it all to recognize, support, and assist, even though what is shown in your dream is that this quality is not quite in sync yet.

So you are receiving these impulses from the galactic, but they’re impulses that have more of a human characteristic about them because they haven’t quite linked, or gone through, the support of the heart.
