We all have set patterns and ways of doing things, but we don’t always understand that those repetitions can help us generate into a specific alignment and intention. But it is always the idea and the intention that comes first, so as one becomes a skilled practitioner of life, the need for the repetition diminishes and the intention can create the desired effect. This is what development enables. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)
Jeane: So I just remember one dream, and, in that dream I seem to be trying to figure out how to get one acupuncture treatment. And I feel like there’s even a way to do it energetically.
But I feel like when I go to consult with the person that I would want to get the treatment from, that I know that my problem is that everybody’s used to doing acupuncture treatments in series of tens. And they’re all used to doing it with needles. And I just can’t figure out how to convince someone that actually one treatment is going to work. And then maybe you can even do this treatment without needles.
And there is at least one person I talked to, but I realize that people just don’t get that if you try to do something differently than how they’re used to doing, they don’t think it can be done. And I can’t quite figure out how to get it done. I’m talking to somebody about how it can be done energetically, but I realize that I can’t seem to break through people’s concepts of how something is done, or has to be done. And so I just get frustrated with that; how am I going to do that?
John: So the key to understanding this dream is to understand what the theme was meant to be last night. And the theme that existed last night had to do with being able to be in life, in all of its different multiplicity ways, without having to be set in any particular way.
You looked at it in terms of how to let go of things, as a type of letting go in terms of a presence. And you’re finding that, in life, everyone has a tendency to have adopted a particular pattern that they maintain over and over again. And, because of this pattern, they fail to see what is obvious in front of them.
They’ve gotten into this pattern, and so this pattern becomes the dictum to how something is, and you have a sense that there’s something more, much more, behind it all. And that this is something that is not in any kind of specific defined way, that you don’t have to go through some sort of set, over and over, defined protocol – that you can just let go and experience it energetically.
In other words, it’s as if everyone else feels that there is some sort of defined outer way that something is done in order to create an invisible effect. And you are of the recognition and view that it’s not the act itself that does it, it’s the energetic behind the act, behind it all, that does it. And if you hit that energetic, that’s all that’s needed.
The activities in the outer, where everyone has 10 steps or something like that that they think of as a checklist will get them to what they desire as a solution. And that’s something that you realize will never lead to a solution because it just solidifies into some other aspected way of being.
And you know that what has to be done has to take place in a sense that is invisible, energetically invisible. That’s a statement of the feminine, in terms of her presence in existence. She knows how to not let things stick in a way that creates a discombobulation from our standpoint of attitude or judgment or mannerism. And so it’s a quality of not leaving traces, in terms of being able to hold oneself in an overallness.
So this quality of being able to be invisible, a feminine trait, is offset by a masculine trait, which is the quality of a natural catching up with a knowingness, where you just have a sense of what is and you’re not continually having to figure out how to peel back to figure out what is. You just have a natural sense in which you know things.
So the feminine trait is to let go of the mannerisms of a checklisted unfoldment, and know how to invisiblize oneself. The whole idea was, how do you go about when you move through life? What is the way? What is the right adab or mannerism for doing so? And so you dreamt what that is like in the accentuated feminine, and I dreamt what it was like in the accentuated masculine.
