2014+12eyeWe have come to understand that we are not one, singular being, and that there isn’t a specific person in charge of this life. If there were, decisions would be made once and that would be the end of it. But we vary, we lose our passion, we get talked out of things by the different lives in us that have their own agendas. On our journey we are trying to bring all those lives into a higher agreement, an agreement that we are, first and foremost, here for a purpose. Sometimes these agreements take compromise, as seen in this dream, where a process of back and forth implies that an issue is being evaluated by the many inner lives.

Jeane: So I don’t remember enough of the details of my dream, except that it was another dream where I was going back and forth, and back and forth, and somebody else wanting to do what I did. But I remember that sometimes, in going back and forth, people were people and sometimes they were penguins, you know. So I remember that part, because I like how penguins look.

But I just don’t remember the details of what I was going back and forth, and back and forth, doing.

John: Well, the theme of the dreaming had to do… See, I don’t know if this is what this means, but I know what the theme of the dreaming was last night, and it had to do with having to confront, or contend, with a mannerism in one’s nature that one leans on – even though maybe one doesn’t show it, or hides it, or knows better, but still leans on it in some capacity.

So it’s possible you were going back and forth and back and forth, in relationship to some quality of your nature that is… well, it’s just something that doesn’t need to be there. I mean it prevents you from going to a deeper depth inside of yourself.

So you’re going back and forth and back and forth as if this points out to yourself, by seeing this, that you carry a particular trait, that you’re leaning on, that veils you from a greater letting go. I mean the deeper underlying theme is to get to kind of an emptiness, or a stillness, and so if there’s something that one is still having to contend with in some fashion, even if it’s something that you know about but still is there, thus going back and forth, and back and forth, as if that is going to help matters.

And so the imagery of what a penguin can mean in relationship to this is, if one knew what the issue was, or could get a sense of something more, then one would get a sense of what the symbolism of a penguin is in relationship to this quality of having to contend with the noticeability of some aspect.

And what this aspect will be doing is it’ll be affecting the way you are feeling yourself. So when you’re truly still it doesn’t mean you’re ignorant, or stupid, or amnesic even. You can be totally still, and yet in complete awareness. You just don’t have this something else that’s standing in the way at the same time, as well, that you have screened out as an aspect. You can have that set aside, too. You don’t need any piecemeal component.

You can be in a stillness that is able to take in everything, and have a connectivity and intertwining with everything, because you’ve been able to disappear yourself. So you’re going back and forth, back and forth. You must be still fumbling with something that you can’t quite let go of, in the way that you would like to let go of it, and so you’re looking and looking and back and forth and back and forth.

And then the penguin would be some sort of symbolic hint about a trait, or quality, that you associate, your psyche associates symbolically, to help you tune into this kind of inner memo.

887012It can feel very disappointing to not be able to control everything that happens; something in us wants to write the end of the story. But that’s not the way of universal things: we want to learn how to be a part of Its story, not make the universe part of our story. Ultimately, a human life is all about the unfolding process, and much less about the end result. If we are able to be in The process, the results will turn out just fine. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in this first meditation part of the dream, in spite of how much I would like something to be, in terms of looking at it in the inner and then somehow or another being able to volley a little bit into how can that come through into the outer, looking at this in a meditation dream I had to admit to myself that hope was being dashed, no matter how I might want something to be, it wasn’t happening. In other words, I know how the vibration of the outer needs to be, that corresponds with the inner, and wasn’t getting there.

So then when I go to sleep I go back into the dream, and that’s when I learn that there is a vibration that determines the situation. If the vibration is there, in a conducive way, I am able to embrace the process and I find inside myself that there’s all kinds of workers, and everything else, that are all aligned; which is another way of saying that all my vibrational nature is at the disposal of what is to be an intended way.

If I see a particular outcome, but there isn’t the appropriate vibrational alignment, and I’m seeing how it should be, for example, but it isn’t meant to be, and yet I refuse to accept the memo, so to speak, that we are in kind of a bifurcation that has yet to run its course, and I refuse to abide by that, as if my righteousness is everything or something, then I’m going to really suffer. And I could suffer in a lot of ways: physically, emotionally; a lot of ways.

So the reason for this dream is for me to know I can reach a particular knowingness state within that aligns into what is meant to be, and then there is a natural flow that is possible. What is interesting is how a charisma of pragmatic energy is naturally able to discern an outcome, and can do so by being able to step aside from value orientation.

If the value orientation of the heart were there, that then would be an even more interesting unfoldment. The reason I say this is, pragmatism, per se, is a wonderful understanding. By understanding, I mean it knows how things seem to be ebbing and flowing in an outer consequence way, in spite of the value orientation that knows how to set it aside and can see how the ebb and flow of something in the outer is, and it can set it aside because it doesn’t get caught in the value orientation.

But what would it be like if wisdom of the heart were introduced to the pragmatist? Well, for one thing, this would really enhance the breath. Instead of it just being one half, the pragmatist half, and then the angelic half on the other side, you could be pulling both sides of the equation out. You’d be making an inner into outer image, as the flip side of the coin, so to speak, the inner and the outer, flip sides of each other, is revealed; becomes the effused unfoldment.

See what’s interesting is to see how your dream worked with all of that. I mean you were sitting there trying to determine how to go this way and that way, and your idea of how you appreciate a ballgame is somehow or another always affected by an opinion, or a mannerism, you have, in terms of what you’re looking at, and what you would like to look at, versus how it actually is. That was the football game.

And then when you took it into life, in your second dream, you came to realize that now you’re applying your mannerism that you had in the first towards the football game, you’re applying that to the action of what it is that you want, and how you’re going about it initially ignores the two kids, ignores the mother, realizes that you’re using a veil to climb under in order to impose something that you think is wonderful. But then when all of that gets factored in, and you find the freedom of the kids, and the freedom of the guy and whatnot, it’s all been a projection.

fbdfWe think that when we hold on to things that we retain them, save them, or keep them – but it’s not true. When we hold on to things we’re actually losing out on the things that are trying to unfold, because we are caught in the past and unavailable for the now. In this series of images the dreamer is being shown, in a number of ways, how the inability to let go prevents something from happening, or may even cause him to lose something he already had.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So I have a couple of dreams that point it out, and then one dream that shows how one can come back into a letting go ambivalency that sweeps and permeates. But that isn’t how it is, initially. Initially one gets abstracted, and when one gets abstracted the situation becomes somewhat abstract.

In this dream, I seem to observe a situation in which it appears a person over-watered an area, and by over-watering a very specific spot the spot seemed to have gotten flooded. As a consequence of this spot getting flooded, a whole chicken disappears. I never did quite see the chicken even, but I find out later that there was supposed to be a chicken there and, gosh knows how that ever was possible, that there was a chicken there, because the spot has been flooded.

So, in the next image, it’s kind of like a redo of it all where one comes back essentially to the situation but, you know, kind of in a reverb, but it’s not quite coming back in the same way. You don’t quite have this indulgence. You’ve let go of it to some degree, and so the chicken now is off to one side and is all cut up into various pieces, to be cooked or whatever you want to do.

So things are out in the open, but it doesn’t mean that that solves anything because there’s a vehicle in the area that is just sitting there. In other words, if anything the vehicle blocks a vision, or gets in the way. And where the water had flooded something, now the water’s just running in the area, and it’s just pouring around out of a hose, or something, onto the ground rather aimlessly.

So all the pieces and the components are there to be put together into something succinct, and to the point, and very clear, but currently everything is situated as kind of a sorting out abstraction. But, before, the whole place just got flooded and everything disappeared. Now things are around, it’s just that they’re still abstracted. They haven’t come together yet.

So into this equation comes another person who notices the waywardness and offers some suggestions, in terms of balance. He says, with the way all this is, we don’t want to be losing the chicken again. And, of course, before it was a whole chicken that disappeared. Now the chicken’s in the open, cut up into various pieces, but you have to go off to one side, and you have to ponder what to do next, and it’s not an easy thing to do because there’s a car in the way and then just prior to the car is water flowing. You’ve got to kind of take all of that into account. In other words, you’re kind of still in a wayward setting. But with everything visible, even though not aligned, a cohesion is possible as a potentiality.

And so then, in the next dream, those I am with find themselves in an unfamiliar place. In other words, nighttime has fallen and it’s time to settle back in this environment that functions a little differently. So there’s a house that we find and go into for the evening, which is a place where one can stop and rest.

You know, that’s the idea of going into this house is to stop and rest. However, even though it is conceivably what you would call a quiet time, the energetic in the air, the vibe of things, is still astir at this late hour, which means settling back into a quiet time or something is just not happening. And the way it’s foreseen is that there are like two rooms, and there’s like a bedroom, and then there’s like an outer room where everyone’s at, and they’re carrying on in an overly animated way instead of settling back as is customary at this time.

So, I seem to know, and can tell, that none of this touches me or something. It’s not more than abstract if it’s wayward. I seem to know that it’s best not to participate. You know, time is up for participating, and so I go into the bedroom. I don’t take my clothes of anything, I just lay on the bed as if to kind of rest, because there’s still all of this other activity going full steam in the other room.

A woman looks into the bedroom and sees that I have not really stepped aside from all of the other, and cleaned myself up yet. And the way this is pointed out is, she says I still have stubble on my chin, which means I haven’t properly shaved or something. What she means, like I say, not clean shaven, and not in a position to let go and be off to one side. In other words, I’m not able to just naturally step aside from an equation when something has been stirred up; I’m still caught in the animation, which means the significance of the dream is an image of malingering affliction.

So in this dream, what has been stirred up is still an unsettlement. I mean it hasn’t sifted itself out and let go. It’s still an intensity in the environment, so when I try to settle back this won’t work if there is a sense of unfinished business that is holding my attention in some capacity, that is keeping me entranced.

So as a consequence, if you really look at yourself, you see yourself as kind of haunted, not letting go. Something about my nature is obsessing, even, in that everything that the energetic appearance actually is giving that away, as I am still carrying myself with the wayward demeanor visible if someone steps into the room, or the place where I am at, visible for them to see.

And, when you put in the first dream, it’s like the situation got too indulgent, too much water, and what was needed got washed away. So to settle back is to find a balance and even-handed consistency. Currently the energy is too much and there is a discombobulation that predominates; energetic discombobulation. Given time a natural reorientation will occur.

The problem is that I am still seeking a type of attention – as if that’s what is necessary for breaking something through – and you don’t need to. You just need to let the stuff, like in the first dream, you’re able to break through the lack of recognition as to what to do, so you’ve broken through the chaos, you’ve shaken up the pieces so that the components are there that are important to be applied – if that is the intent. In other words, the chaos is no longer all over the place.

Although things may remain askew, I can move on because there’s a sight and recognition that can pull things together as it’s destined to be. It may not be a destiny in terms of what I would choose, but who am I to choose it? Now you settle back, you hand it off, you let go, and it’s no longer my business.

I’m not even sure that you work with trust anymore to properly let go; if you still think that you have to worry about the trust of the situation then you haven’t really let go. You hand it off, and so then what you do is you reground to what is needed as destiny takes over from here.
