In the Dumps

maxltWe have spoken of the urge in the universe to refine, and much of that is a robotic process whereby everything tries to be better at what it already does, according to new environmental factors. But, that’s the physical side of evolution. How do things evolve spiritually? Well, the human is the only form of life that can, by its presence, by its radiation, let other forms of life experience higher energetics than the planetary. And whenever higher energies touch lower energies, something can be transferred – and that is a service to the whole.

John: And so, in the meditation dream, because I know that everything is a stillness, I proceed to delve into a non-involved quiet, still demeanor with regard to the outer. I take a couple stabs, first of all, at being free in just a total stillness place, but I can’t stay in the total stillness place. I travel in that, and I can look at myself traveling in that, but I also, then, have to mirror – and so I have to come back into life.

And so what unfolds is I am shown the process in which my energy is a type of healing; it is reflected back into life. And basically it’s released as an example set aside for others to see, so they won’t further infect themselves and others with their bifurcations. It’s a mirroring. It’s a letting go that mirrors. In other words, it’s a letting go that’s into a stillness, that can still, then, somehow something is going on, and what is going on, and how you’re conducting yourself, mirrors.

If the step of letting go is in name only, more as a gesture than a truth, in other words you’re projecting the gesture, and you’re caught up in the gesture, instead of seeing a truth behind, that is the stillness, that you embody, an infection continues vibrationally.

In this dream, what’s happening is, I’ve gone to a garbage dump. This is a dump in which you take your refuse of things, whatever the refuse might be, that are to be let go of. And you don’t discard them in the usual way, where it’s like you blank them out or something, because that can be repressed, or subjugated, into your nature. What you do is you lay it out there, you just lay it out there.

Now, when it’s just laid out there at the garbage dump, some of it, then, is looked at and realized, you know, this can be used, yet, it can be fed back into life in a certain way – as an action or a conduct. Other aspects of it can be flattened out and whatnot.

And, when you come into a garbage dump, everything that exists that you’re bringing forth, it’s garbage, and so it’s going to stink. So when you arrive at a garbage dump, you don’t just throw it out there, hold your nose and throw it out there, because you’re still not necessarily getting it. Instead, when you go to a garbage dump, it’s like there’s the attendant, or the scribe, if it was the Ibn Araby way of describing it in Kingdom of Man, and he helps in the letting go. He sees what can be handed out to others yet. And what can be flattened out and left there.

And I thought I had more garbage than I had, but most of it could be applied in this way or that way yet. And so he then asked me, “Have I ever been bitten before?” which is his way of saying, do I come thinking I’m letting go, but not really – like people make the new year’s resolutions and then they get all caught up in it again.

By that he means, have I truly released what I’m holding on to, or is this yet another way that I am still infected? Just like a person can make a donation, for example, but maybe they cringe, but they did the donation for conceptual purposes. And they’re still infected, it’s not a true letting go donation.

So I say I have, as I acknowledge that I am aware. The attendant is suggesting that I may be still holding on in some bifurcated way, something that will further set me back from the letting go to the stillness. This is what traveling in God is like.

So the meaning is, in this dream I am shown that an aspect of stillness is where there is a visible letting go that makes itself known for me, and others, to see. This is a step that is not only letting go to a stillness, but others and myself as a mirror to what remains outstanding. The teaching is that to be truly free, the soul must dis-involve outwardly, in order to radiate into the environment the stillness embedded therein.

This occurs when the traveling in God involves reflecting the letting go, both in the way I carry myself energetically, but also in the embedded stillness that I touch. So, in this dream, the issue of various subrogations came up in order for me to see that this is not a deeper means, but is a departure from what we are meant to honor.

When such waywardness still prevails, there is a reinfection that blinds. So, what this means for me, directly speaking, is I need to be careful what steps I take that sound good, but also may be weighing me down energetically in a way that hurts the environment, or hurts an unfoldment towards a recognition of a stillness. And, for each person, it can be different.

Yearning to Be Free

free_from_prisonThe idea of “dying before you die” in spirituality refers to the complete surrender of the personal identity we all create for ourselves during a life. That is the part of us that thinks it can control the outcomes of the world, or the flow of life, and that takes everything that happens to us personally (i.e., why does it always rain on my birthday?). Letting go of all of that is the only way to connect to the universal flow of things. And, of course, it doesn’t mean we no longer play a role in how our life proceeds, it means that our decisions are guided by our higher connections – which are concerned with higher purposes. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in my dream, it starts off with me picking up a person who has served his time, in other words, he’s been incarcerated in some fashion, as if in prison, but I mean you don’t see the prison you just feel that he has had to contend with things. And now he has served his time contending with things, and so now he again is dropped into life.

In other words, he goes through a door, so to speak, that was a realm in which he had to contend with how it was that he was, and he has served his time, so now he’s released into this other area. I’m there, picking him up as he’s released into this other area, and to be released in this other area the main apparent seeming path that’s laid out, that you’re inclined to think you have to follow, goes straight ahead.

And in going straight ahead there are certain things that are required. Because there is still supposedly a stigma that remains, even though he served his time, if he were to pay attention to the stigma that yet remains the requirement is for him to give up everything he is entitled to – which is kind of like a social security, or per diem, that he gets in life. And so he would have to give that up in addition to paying some sort of restitution.

So as I walk with him as he comes through the incarceration gate, instead of walking straightforward into life, he drops it all, he turns to the right and goes down a trail that goes through a garden planted area, or field, and on the other side is a gate that takes him completely out of existence.

It is all I can do to keep up with him because what he’s doing is a kind of disappearing of himself. In other words, he’s not going to pay any attention to the per diem, nor is he going to pay any attention to the restitution. It’s too much weight, too much barrier, it’s too much to have to bear. In fact, he has served his time, so he doesn’t have to bear anything. By having served his time, he knows that the process is one of letting go of everything. Why should there be the per diem, or the restitution, or whatever else that still malingers upon the heart?

So, the way he’s walking is he’s walking off the face of life as it is known. As I try to catch up with him as he’s proceeding along, and I’m asking 10 and 20 questions, he says, “I’ve already done that.” That’s his answer basically to all my questions.

So I follow him as we walk through what is like a kind of a big field or garden or something, struggling to keep up, and in the struggling there is this scramble to catch up with a true comprehension, instead of having to take it in in relationship to how it is in this other zone, or realm, or even aspect of a level.

So, as he nears this gate on the other side of this large field, which is planted in kind of a crop, that is kind of a manmade crop, that’s kind of pale green, as he walks past that – I get it. I know as soon as he passes through the gate on the other side of the garden zone I will never see, hear, or know anything about him again. In terms of the system, he will not exist. There will be no news from him ever again, which means that for all intents and purposes it will be as if he never existed and there will be nothing in life that is able to have an effect upon him whatsoever, in any way.

I realize that not only is he not paying one iota of attention to anything that limits the heart, he is also likewise obliterating, by a type of letting go, so that it is as if it never really existed such self-imposed system obligations there that have nothing to do with a true inner will. With the slate wiped clean, and all energetics for him to relate to, in the outer, gone he is no longer bound by anything.

The meaning is that I yearn to be free of all that I carry in an imprisonmented heart. The problem I have is I just do not know how to truly let go. I’m talking about a letting go that is so mind-blowing I am not quite able to grasp it.

And what is it that I am to grasp? Something like being absolutely free. It has to do with as if I have served my time, that I can let go of the outer heat and burdens completely, because I am free of the self-imposed, manmade weights and measures that are placed upon the heart when I think I have to be this, or that. I do not have to account for myself in any regard whatsoever anymore. It’s as if I can write myself out of the face of existence and be nonexistent.
