Posts Tagged ‘kayaking in a dream’

R984We’ve seen many sci-fi movie scenarios where an Earthling finds themselves on another planet – and what do they do? They observe, they study, they try to figure out the meanings of things. But, as a rule, they don’t get personally involved, or think that it is about them. So how is that different to our situation? We find ourselves born on a planet hurtling through space, and we are meant to study, observe, and learn what we can, but we are not meant to get personally involved. Why? Because in a 1000 years, everything we know will be proven wrong, and everything that seemed to matter won’t matter at all. That’s why the spiritual path is important: it offers a way to become part of the things that will still matter in a million years.

Jeane: The last dream I remember I ran into an old friend of mine who kayaks a lot and I want to go out kayaking with him, at night, and he wants to spend the night with me. Usually we’ve just been friends, but it feels like in the dreamworld maybe we’ve had a relationship where occasionally we’d spend the night together.

Well, we go out kayaking, and then we seem to come to an area where I run into a woman I know and she’s been learning some dance, a rather complicated dance, from an aboriginal of some kind. And so I’m studying the dance because it requires her to kind of squat down, and get flipped over, real primitive dance, but she seems to be able to do it. And I’m interested in it, and maybe meeting the person that was showing her the dance – although I’m not sure I can do the dance.

And while I’m doing all this and the three of us are together, I realize that I think he makes love with her, and I realize that when he makes love with her there’s this thin stripe of color. It might be like a thin stripe of green, with maybe a pale white that goes down the middle, that would represent that. But if he were to make love with me it would be a different color, and maybe with other people there’s a different color yet that each thing represents.

So I’m kind of interested in that. And we’ve gone to her house. It feels like they’ve gone to bed. I’ve gone to explore the dancing, or I’ve come back to her bedroom. I think her stepmom, who has a room next door, comes into the room, so meanwhile our friend is hidden under the blanket, but the stepmother discovers him but she doesn’t seem to mind. She’s explaining why she doesn’t mind.  And that’s all I remember of the dream. It was just an odd little dream where I was studying trying to see these different colors and the dance.

John: The theme behind the dreaming, as a general subject matter, is that of atmosphere. Now what I mean by atmosphere is you’re having to feel what it’s like under different scenarios, and so you’re not actually contending with things anymore. You’re more recognizing the characteristics, and mannerisms, in the environment that you’re in, which means that a part of you is free.

In other words, you’re able to travel, or to move about, as opposed to being overwhelmed or contending with something specific that you have to burn off as a dross. Now, it’s not entirely true, because in the watching you’re still pondering these different colors of which the effect of a particular mannerism upon you would have a certain way in which you would correlate, and relate, and be brought into having to contend with life. But this is more your way, actually, of understanding a freedom.

And you could take all of these traits and you could say, okay, on one hand is the trait of something that is looking for something, that feels that it’s missing something, and so it doesn’t know what it’s looking for and so it settles. It finds itself ending up going from this to that, settling for this or that, always looking but never really finding the pure light, or what it is that it really needs.

And then there’s another part that takes and conducts itself with a certain free flow, and in this whole thing, you know, you’re kayaking which means you’re on a path, or on a journey, and to you these are things that are perceivable along the journey. In other words, there’s another friend that you run into that has a free flow, that dance. It has a throwback memory in terms of how it is to just let things flow, or hang out.

And so you have these two extremes in yourself and, technically, you’re somewhere in-between – and you’re not sure if you should be in-between. In other words, you’re able to watch and see that something which is free tends to sometimes then get caught up by something that is needy, and what that tends to look like in terms of the effect that rubs off, and you’re starting to see that there is this kind of vibrational world, or reality, and it’s a reality in which one’s relatability is color-oriented.

You have the lower chakra colors and the higher chakra colors, and they all contain information, and within the information is a certain way of functioning, and relating. And you’re able to denote that if you were to appease yourself of that particular need of this other, that it would have another particular aspect effect, definitional quality of light effect, upon you.

And so you’re coming to know, and you’re coming to recognize, being kind of as a traveler, rather than taking on specific identifications, you’re coming to know that it is in the traveling that everything is important, what is important is important. In other words, a beingness in any particular way has its limitations. Sure, there’s the part that can do the sophisticated dance that hearkens back to the aboriginal and an ancient memory and whatnot, but that still is trying to hold onto something – but it’s freer.

And this relates to the part of what you see in life, the part of one’s self that has a deeper, inner knowingness, but still leans on that knowingness as if it’s a somethingness. And because it still leans on that, it is still subject to the effects of another part of one’s self, or extreme, in life, in which people don’t know any better that they’re just going about looking for this, that, or the other for satisfaction purposes – thinking that’s the end all be all, and find momentary satisfaction, but don’t realize that what they settle for in that momentary satisfaction, or coming together, is another kind of limited spectrum of being, or trance, and that one can go from one mode to another mode.

And yet as a traveler watching everything going on in life you’re able to see how it’s like this, or it’s like that, and so you fortunately have a freedom to be able to travel, to kayak, to basically bicycle about things because you have a sense that there is something more. Now you have this sense of something more because you can tell this by being a good watcher, by being able to see that if it’s like this, it’s like this, if it’s like that, it’s like that, and you’re able to denote what that actually signifies vibrationally, or as a color.

And so you’re coming to know it in the feminine way of a quality of how it is that you notice, in terms of how you are able to be, or carry, yourself. It is a type of seeing, but it’s a subjective type of seeing. In other words, you’re not taking and making clearcut black-and-white distinctions. You’re just noting it, and in noting it you’re letting go of it. In noting it you’re seeing to be something, recognizing it to be something, and some part of you as a traveler quality knows that anything that is denotable like that has its limits.

You don’t need to know what that is, how to octave that. You don’t need to play a good, better, or best. You’re just drawing a general assessment of that, and you notice that no matter what you do to shift this way, or that way, it is always something that has a particular effect, or quality, and what you’re looking for as a traveler is something that has no effect and no quality upon you.

13847209_51nIt’s nice sometimes to appreciate the humor of the unconscious. Here we have a scene of kayaking near a dam, but our dreamer’s kayak is crudely made and, after a bit of travel, runs out of water underneath it. And we live in a world that, in theory, encourages individuality. But that’s not what the universe is encouraging. The universe has created us to be unique, yet joined to the whole. Going our “own” way will not lead us to greater connection, but to a dead end. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I have a dream in which I seem to have gone out from the house where I’m living. I go up a hillside, to an area that’s a recreational area near a dam. In this recreational area, they have an area of water that’s been contained like with concrete walls, and I want to kayak there. Other people have kayaked, but what I seem to have is a really short, hollowed-out log that is kind of crudely hollowed out, kind of like some of the early canoes that the people would make, you know, like with the little hand instrument, but it’s short.

I notice this group that’s together of some young women and men and they kind of look at me and they’re a little bit amused but, you know, because they’re going to be in their kayaks and I’ll be in this. But I get in it. I seem to know how to balance it a bit and get in the water, and am paddling around, but part of paddling around is to want to go over and go over some water that drops down in two or three levels to the bottom.

I go over there and I stop and I go down one level, but then I realize someone’s turned off the water. So in order to get down to the bottom level, where I’d like to go, it’s all concrete, there’s a couple of adventuresome guys that are thinking they might want to try it, but it looks like over to the side there is like kind of a spill gate. And maybe you could do that in a kayak that goes down level to level, but certainly not in my little log that tips over easily. So I kind of get my little log back up into the water and get myself back up to the even area.

John: This is a dream in which you’re rebelling. It’s like you have your own mannerism or way, that is different from everybody else, and it works. It’s not quite complete. It’s short, but it’s you. And so you’re holding on to this as an approach.

In and of itself, you could say that there is something wonderful and transformational and awakening about this, but that isn’t what the dream says.

If the dream didn’t have this other input, you know, you could easily misconclude what it’s saying. Because what it’s really saying is the self-stylized mannerism that you have is not going to stay in the flow. And you’re going to find yourself then struggling to find the flow. It’s just going to suddenly stop if you continue to keep going in this particular way or demeanor.

And yet it started off as kind of a wonderful idea. I mean, you didn’t have to have a great, wonderful kayak like everybody else. You could get by with this funktified, carved-out log, or whatever it was.

But in the end, you realized that what you had done was create your own conceptualization of things, as opposed to something that worked naturally and was more readily available, and was all around you. And yet, you refused to quite go along with what was all around you. And you were going to do it kind of your way. And your way always will end up in something just coming to a screeching halt.
